Russell Stendal Teaches on Exodus Chapters 23-24 [Spanish]
Exodus Chapter 23 (JUB)
1 Thou shalt not admit a false rumour; put not thine hand with the wicked to be a false witness.
2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause hiding behind many to wrest judgment;
3 neither shalt thou honour a poor man in his cause.
4 If thou should encounter thine enemy’s ox or his ass astray, thou shalt surely bring it back to him again.
5 If thou see the ass of him that hates thee lying under his burden, will thou forbear to help him? Thou shalt surely help him to raise it up.
6 Thou shalt not pervert the rights of thy poor in his cause.
7 Keep thee far from a false matter; and slay thou not the innocent and righteous; for I will not justify the wicked.
8 And thou shalt take no bribe; for the bribe blinds the wise and perverts the words of the righteous.
9 Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger, for ye know the state of the soul of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
10 And six years thou shalt sow thy land and shalt gather in its increase,
11 but the seventh year thou shalt leave it free and release it, that the poor of thy people may eat, and what they leave the beasts of the field shall eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard and with thy oliveyard.
12 Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou shalt rest, that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy handmaid and the stranger may be refreshed.
13 And in all things that I have said unto you, be circumspect and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.
14 Three times thou shalt celebrate a feast unto me in the year:
15 Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib, for in it thou didst come out from Egypt; and none shall appear before me empty),
16 And the feast of the harvest of the firstfruits of thy labours, which thou hast sown in the field, and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.
17 Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord GOD.
18 Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread; neither shall the fat of my lamb remain until the morning.
19 The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not boil a kid in his mother’s milk.
20 Behold, I send the Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
21 Keep thyself before him and hear his voice, grieve him not; for he will not pardon your rebellion, for my name is in him.
22 But if thou shalt indeed hear his voice and do all that I speak, then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies and an adversary unto those that afflict thee.
23 For my Angel shall go before thee and bring thee in unto the land of the Amorite and the Hittite and the Perizzite and the Canaanite the Hivite and the Jebusite; and I will cut them off.
24Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works; but thou shalt utterly overthrow them and completely break down their images.
25But ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread and thy water; and I will take all sickness away from the midst of thee.
26No women shall abort, nor be barren, in thy land; the number of thy days I will fulfil.
27I will send my fear before thee and will trouble all the people to whom thou shalt come, and I will make all thine enemies turn their backs unto thee.
28And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite from before thee.
29I will not drive them out from before thee in one year lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field multiply against thee.
30Little by little I will drive them out from before thee until thou be multiplied and take the land by inheritance.
31And I will set thy borders from the Red Sea even unto the sea of the Philistines and from the desert unto the river; for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and thou shalt drive them out before thee.
32Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.
33They shall not dwell in thy land lest peradventure they make thee sin against me by serving their gods, for it will be a snare unto thee.
Exodus Chapter 24 (JUB)
1 And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the Lord, thou and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu and seventy of the elders of Israel, and worship afar off.
2 And Moses alone shall approach the Lord, but they shall not come near; neither shall the people go up with him.
3 And Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the rights, and all the people answered with one voice and said, All the words which the Lord has said we will do.
4 And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord and rose up early in the morning and built an altar at the foot of the mount and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
5 And he sent the young men of the sons of Israel, who had offered burnt offerings and sacrificed peace offerings of bullocks unto the Lord.
6 And Moses took half of the blood and put it in basins, and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
7 And he took the book of the covenant and read in the audience of the people, and they said, All that the Lord has said we will do, and we will hear.
8 Then Moses took the blood and sprinkled it on the people and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord has made with you concerning all these words.
9 Then Moses and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu and seventy of the elders of Israel went up,
10 and they saw the God of Israel; and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone like unto the heaven when it is clear.
11 But he did not lay his hand upon the princes of the sons of Israel, and they saw God and ate and drank.
12 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount and wait there, and I will give thee tables of stone and the law and commandments which I have written to teach them.
13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua, and Moses went up into the mount of God.
14 And he said unto the elders, wait here for us until we come again unto you; and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you; if anyone has any matters to settle, let him come unto them.
15 Then Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the mount.
16 And the glory of the Lord abode upon Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days, and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud.
17 And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the sons of Israel.
18 And Moses entered into the midst of the cloud and went up into the mount, and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty nights.
