Russell Stendal Teaches on Leviticus Chapters 17-19 [Spanish]
Leviticus Chapter 17 (JUB)
1 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons and unto all the sons of Israel and say unto them: This is what the Lord has commanded, saying,
3 any man of the house of Israel that kills an ox or lamb or goat in the camp or that kills it out of the camp
4 and does not bring it unto the door of the tabernacle of the testimony to offer an offering unto the Lord before the tabernacle of the Lord, blood shall be imputed unto that man; he has shed blood, and that man shall be cut off from among his people:
5 to the end that the sons of Israel may bring their sacrifices which they sacrifice in the open field, even that they may bring them unto the Lord unto the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, unto the priest and sacrifice sacrifices of peace unto the Lord.
6 And the priest shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar of the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of the testimony and incense the fat in a very acceptable aroma unto the Lord.
7 And they shall never again offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they fornicate. They shall have this as a perpetual statute throughout their ages.
8 And thou shalt also say unto them: Any man of the house of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among you that offers a burnt offering or sacrifice
9 and does not bring it unto the door of the tabernacle of the testimony to offer it unto the Lord, even that man shall be cut off from among his people.
10 And any man of the house of Israel or of the strangers that sojourn among you that eats any blood at all, I will set my face against that person that eats blood and will cut them off from among his people.
11 For the soul (or life) of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you to reconcile your persons (or souls) upon the altar; therefore the same blood reconciles the person.
12 Therefore I have said unto the sons of Israel: No person of you shall eat blood; neither shall any stranger that sojourns among you eat blood.
13 And any man of the sons of Israel or of the strangers that sojourn among you who hunts and catches any beast or fowl that may be eaten, he shall pour out its blood and cover it with dust.
14 For the soul of all flesh, its life, is in its blood; therefore, I have said unto the sons of Israel, Ye shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the soul (or the life) of all flesh is its blood; whoever eats it shall be cut off.
15 And any person that eats that which died of itself or that which was torn by beasts whether it is a natural of your own country or a stranger, he shall both wash his clothes and bathe himself in water and be unclean until the evening; then he shall be clean.
16 But if he washes them not, nor bathes his flesh; then he shall bear his iniquity.
Leviticus Chapter 18 (JUB)
1 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the sons of Israel and say unto them, I AM your God.
3 You shall not do as they do in the land of Egypt, in which ye dwelt; nor shall you do as they do in the land of Canaan, where I bring you; neither shall ye walk in their statutes.
4 Ye shall comply with my rights and keep my statutes, walking in them. I AM your God.
5 Therefore you shall keep my rights and my statutes, of which the man doing them, shall live in them. I am the Lord.
6 No man shall approach any woman that is near of kin to him, to uncover her nakedness. I am the Lord.
7 The nakedness of thy father or the nakedness of thy mother, thou shalt not uncover; she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
8 The nakedness of thy father’s wife thou shalt not uncover; it is thy father’s nakedness.
9 The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father or daughter of thy mother, whether she is born at home or born abroad, their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.
10 The nakedness of thy son’s daughter or of thy daughter’s daughter, their nakedness thou shalt not uncover; for theirs is thine own nakedness.
11 The nakedness of thy father’s wife’s daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
12 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s sister; she is thy father’s near kinswoman.
13 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister; for she is thy mother’s near kinswoman.
14 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife; she is thine aunt.
15 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter-in-law; she is thy son’s wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
16 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother’s wife; it is thy brother’s nakedness.
17 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter; neither shalt thou take her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen; it is wickedness.
18 Neither shalt thou take a woman together with her sister, to make her a rival, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her lifetime.
19 Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness as long as she is separated for her uncleanness.
20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour’s wife, contaminating thyself with her.
21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech; neither shalt thou contaminate the name of thy God: I am the Lord.
22 Thou shalt not lie with males as with women; it is abomination.
23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith; neither shall any woman stand before a beast to join herself with it; it is mixture.
24 Do not defile yourselves in any of these things; for in all these things the Gentiles which I cast out before you have defiled themselves;
25 and the land became defiled; therefore, I visited its iniquity upon it, and the land itself vomited out her inhabitants.
26 Ye shall, therefore, keep my statutes and my rights and shall not commit any of these abominations, neither the natural of your own nor any stranger that sojourns among you.
27 (For all these abominations were done by the men of the land who were before you, and the land was contaminated.)
28 And will the land not vomit you out also for having contaminated it, as it vomited out the Gentiles that were before you?
29 For whoever shall commit any of these abominations, the persons that commit them shall be cut off from among his people.
30 Keep, therefore, my ordinance that ye commit not any one of these abominable laws which were committed before you, and do not defile yourselves in them; I am the Lord your God.
Leviticus Chapter 19 (JUB)
1 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto all the congregation of the sons of Israel and say unto them, Ye shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.
3 Ye shall fear, every man his mother and his father and keep my sabbaths. I AM your God.
4 Do not return unto idols nor make to yourselves molten gods. I AM your God.
5 And when ye offer a sacrifice of peace unto the Lord, ye shall offer it of your own free will.
6 It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it and on the next day, and any remaining until the third day shall be burnt in the fire.
7 And if it is eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted;
8 and whoever eats it shall bear his iniquity because he has profaned the holiness of the Lord, and that person shall be cut off from among his people.
9 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not completely reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest.
10 And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather the fallen grapes of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and the stranger. I AM your God.
11 Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.
12 And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou defile the name of thy God. I am the Lord.
13 Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him. Do not detain the wages of the work of the hired man in thy house until the morning.
14 Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God. I am the Lord.
15 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, neither pleasing the poor, nor favoring the mighty; but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.
16 Thou shalt not travel about as a talebearer among thy people; neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour. I am the Lord.
17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart; thou shalt rebuke thy neighbour in sincerity, that thou not bear sin for him.
18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the sons of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. I am the Lord.
19 Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy animal join with a diverse kind for mixtures; thou shalt not sow thy field with mixture, neither shalt thou wear garments of a mixture of different things.
20 And when a man lies carnally with a woman that is a bondmaid, betrothed to a husband and has not been completely ransomed nor been given her freedom, both shall be scourged; they shall not be put to death because she is not free.
21And he shall bring in expiation for his guilt unto the Lord, unto the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, a ram for expiation of guilt.
22 And the priest shall reconcile him with the ram of the guilt before the Lord for his sin which he has committed, and the sin which he has committed shall be forgiven him.
23 And when ye have come into the land and shall have planted all manner of trees for food, then ye shall circumcise the foreskin of the fruit; three years it shall be uncircumcised unto you; it shall not be eaten of.
24 But in the fourth year all the fruit thereof shall be holiness of rejoicing unto the Lord.
25 And in the fifth year ye shall eat of the fruit thereof that it may yield unto you the increase thereof. I AM your God.
26 Ye shall not eat any thing with blood. Ye shall not be fortunetellers, nor diviners.
27 Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou mar the corners of thy beard.
28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you. I am the Lord.
29 Do not contaminate thy daughter, causing her to commit fornication, lest the land be prostituted, and the land become full of wickedness.
30 Ye shall keep my sabbaths and reverence my sanctuary. I am the Lord.
31 Do not return unto spiritists or seek after diviners, to be defiled by them. I AM your God.
32 Thou shalt rise up before grey hair and honour the face of the elder and fear thy God. I am the Lord.
33 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not oppress him.
34 But the stranger that dwells with you shall be as the natural of yourselves, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. I AM your God.
35 Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in measurement of land, in weight, or in other measure.
36 Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin shall ye have. I AM your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt.
37 Keep, therefore, all my statutes and all my rights and do them. I am the Lord.
