Douay-Rheims Bible

Exodus 23

Of slander and false witness.

Exodus 23:1 Thou shalt not receive the voice of a lie: neither shalt thou join thy hand to bear false witness for a wicked person.

Exodus 23:2 Thou shalt not follow the multitude to do evil: neither shalt thou yield in judgment, to the opinion of the most part, to stray from the truth.

Of justice.

Exodus 23:3 Neither shalt thou favour a poor man in judgment.

Of charitableness.

Exodus 23:4 If thou meet thy enemy's ox or ass going astray, bring it back to him. Exodus 23:5 If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lie underneath his burden, thou shalt not pass by, but shalt lift him up with him.

Of justice.

Exodus 23:6 Thou shalt not go aside in the poor man's judgment. Exodus 23:7 Thou shalt fly lying. The innocent and just person thou shalt not put to death: because I abhor the wicked.

Exodus 23:8 Neither shalt thou take bribes, which even blind the wise, and pervert the words of the just.

Exodus 23:9 Thou shalt not molest a stranger, for you know the hearts of strangers: for you also were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Of the year of rest.

Exodus 23:10 Six years thou shalt sow thy ground, and shalt gather the corn thereof. Exodus 23:11 But the seventh year thou shalt let it alone, and suffer it to rest, that the poor of thy people may eat, and whatsoever shall be left, let the beasts of the field eat it: so shalt thou do with thy vineyard and thy oliveyard.

Of the Sabbath.

Exodus 23:12 Six days thou shalt work: the seventh day thou shalt cease, that thy ox and thy ass may rest: and the son of thy handmaid and the stranger may be refreshed.

Of idolatry.

Exodus 23:13 Keep all things that I have said to you. And by the name of strange gods you shall not swear, neither shall it be heard out of your mouth.

Of the three feasts.

Exodus 23:14 Three times every year you shall celebrate feasts to me. Exodus 23:15 Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread. Seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the month of new corn, when thou didst come forth out of Egypt: thou shalt not appear empty before me. Exodus 23:16 And the feast of the harvest of the firstfruits of thy work, whatsoever thou hast sown in the field. The feast also in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in all thy corn out of the field. Exodus 23:17 Thrice a year shall all thy males appear before the Lord thy God.

Of the blood and the fat of the sacrifice.

Exodus 23:18 Thou shalt not sacrifice the blood of my victim upon leaven, neither shall the fat of my solemnity remain until the morning. Exodus 23:19 Thou shalt carry the first-fruits of the corn of thy ground to the house of the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not boil a kid in the milk of his dam.

An angel is promised, with a blessing, if they obey him.

Exodus 23:20 Behold I will send my angel, who shall go before thee, and keep thee in thy journey, and bring thee into the place that I have prepared. Exodus 23:21 Take notice of him, and hear his voice, and do not think him one to be contemned: for he will not forgive when thou hast sinned, and my name is in him. Exodus 23:22 But if thou wilt hear hi voice, and do all that I speak, I will be an enemy to thy enemies, and will afflict them that afflict thee. Exodus 23:23 And my angel shall go before thee, and shall bring thee in unto the Amorrhite, and the Hethite, and the Pherexite, and the Chanaanite, and the Hevite, and the Jebuzite, whom I will destroy. Exodus 23:24 Thou shalt not adore their gods, nor serve them. Thou shalt not do their works, but shalt destroy them, and break their statues. Exodus 23:25 And you shall serve the Lord your God, that I may bless your bread and your waters, and may take away sickness from the midst of thee.

Exodus 23:26 There shall not be one fruitless nor barren in thy land: I will fill the number of thy days. Exodus 23:27 I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to whom thou shalt come: and will turn the backs of all thy enemies before thee: Exodus 23:28 Sending out hornets before, that shall drive away the Hevite, and the Chanaanite, and the Hethite, before thou come in. Exodus 23:29 I will not cast them out from thy face in one year; lest the land be brought into a wilderness, and the beasts multiply against thee. Exodus 23:30 By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, till thou be increased, and dost possess the land. Exodus 23:31 And I will set thy bounds from the Red Sea to the sea of the Palestines, and from the desert to the river: I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hands, and will drive them out from before you. Exodus 23:32 Thou shalt not enter into league with them, nor with their gods. Exodus 23:33 Let them not dwell in thy land, lest perhaps they make thee sin against me, if thou serve their gods; which, undoubtedly, will be a scandal to thee.
