Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

Leviticus

Chapter 1

1.And the Lord called to Moses, and spoke to him from the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

2.“Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, ‘If any man among you bring an offering to the Lord, you will bring your offering from the cattle, from either the herd or the flock.

3.If his offering be a burnt sacrifice from the herd, let him offer a male without blemish. He shall bring it to the door of the tent of meeting, and of his own will, he shall offer it before the Lord.

4.And he shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted for him to make atonement for him.

5a.And he shall kill the bullock before the Lord. Then the sons of Aaron, the priests, will bring the blood near, and they will pour the blood around on the altar which is at the door of the meeting tent.”

1. And Jehovah spoke to Moses and said,

2.“Speak to Aaron, and to his sons, and to all the sons of Israel, and tell them, ‘This is the word that Jehovah has commanded, saying,

3.Any man of the house of Israel who slaughters an ox, or a sheep, or a goat in the camp, or who slaughters them outside the camp,

4.and does not bring it to the door of the tent of meeting and present the blood to Jehovah before the tabernacle Jehovah, blood shall be imputed to that man. He has shed blood. That man shall be cut off from among his people,

5.to the end that the sons of Israel bring their sacrifices which they offer in the open field should bring them to Jehovah at the door of the tent of meeting, to the priest, so that they may offer them as peace offerings to Jehovah.’

6.And the priest shall throw the blood against the altar of Jehovah at the door of the tent of meeting, and he shall cause the fat to smoke for a placating aroma Jehovah.

7.And they shall no longer offer their sacrifices to [hairy] demons, after which they have gone whoring [with which they have committed whoredom. This shall be an everlasting statute for them, throughout their generations.

1. And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

3.Any man of the house of Israel who slaughters an ox, or a sheep, or a goat in the camp, or who slaughters them outside the camp,

4.and does not bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting and offer it as a gift to Jehovah before Jehovah’s dwelling place, blood shall be imputed to 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 bring their sacrifices which they are offering in the open field, and bring them to Jehovah at the entrance of the tent of meeting to the priest, and offer them as a peace offering to Jehovah.

6.And the priest shall throw the blood against the altar of Jehovah at the entrance of the tent of meeting, and he shall make the fat to smoke for a placating aroma to Jehovah.

7.And they shall no longer offer their sacrifices to goat demons, with which they committed whoredom. An everlasting statute shall this be for them, throughout their generations.’

8.And you shall say to them, ‘Any man of the house of Israel or any stranger who dwells among them who offers up a burnt offering or sacrifice,

9.and does not bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting to offer it to Jehovah, then that man shall be cut off from his people.

10.And if any man of the house of Israel or any stranger who dwells among them consumes any kind of blood, I will set my face against that person who consumes the blood, and I will cut him off from among his people.

[below, not checked since trans folk did them]

11.For the life of the flesh is in its blood, and I have given it for you upon the altar to cover over your souls because it is the blood, through the life, that covers.

12.Therefore, I have said to the children of Israel, “No person among you will eat blood, nor will the sojourner who is sojourning among you eat blood.

Chapter 26

1. You shall not make idols for yourselves, nor shall you raise up for yourselves an image or pillar, nor shall you erect a carved stone in your land to bow down to it, because I am Jehovah, your God.

2. You shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary. I am Jehovah.

3. If you walk in my statutes and observe my commandments and do them,

4.then I will give you your rains in their season, and the land will yield its produce, and the tree of the field will bear its fruit.

5. Your threshing season will last until the grape harvest, and grape harvest will last until seed-time. And you will eat your food to the full, and you will dwell safely in your land.

6. And I will establish peace in the land, and you will lie down and no one will make you afraid. And I will cause the harmful beast to cease from the land, and the sword will not pass through your land.

7. And you will pursue your enemies, and they will fall before you by the sword.

8. And five of you will pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you will pursue ten thousand, and your enemies will fall before you by the sword.

9. And I will turn to you, and I will make you fruitful, and I will multiply you, and I will establish my covenant with you.

10. And you will eat old harvest, long stored, and you will carry out the old harvest because of the new.

11. And I will put my tabernacle in your midst, and my soul will not abhor you.

12. And I will walk about in your midst, and I will be your God, and you will be my people.

13. I am Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of the Egyptians, delivering you from being their slaves, and I broke the bars of your yoke and enabled you to walk erect.

14. But if you will not listen to me, and will not do all these commandments,

15.and if you refuse my statutes, and if your soul despises my judgments, so that you do not do all my commandments, so that you break my covenant,

16.I will also do this to you: I will appoint over you terror, with consumption, and with the fever, consuming the eyes and draining the life, and you will sow your seed in vain, for your enemies will eat it.

17. And I will set my face against you, and you will be struck down before your enemies, and those who hate you will rule over you, and you will flee when no one is pursuing you.

18. And in spite of these things, if you will not listen to me, then I will again discipline you sevenfold for your sins.

19. And I will break to pieces the majesty of your strength, and I will make your skies like iron and your land like bronze.

20. And your strength will be spent in vain, and your land will not yield its produce, and the tree of the land will not bear its fruit.

21. And if you walk contrary to me, and will not listen to me, then I will add to you a sevenfold scourging, according to your sins.

22. And I will send against you beasts of the field, and they will bereave you, and they will kill your livestock, and they will diminish you, and your roads will be deserted.

23. And if by these things you are not turned to me, and you walk contrary to me,

24.then will I also walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet sevenfold for your sins.

25. And I will bring a sword against you which will take vengeance, the vengeance of my covenant. And when you are gathered together in your cities, I will send a plague among you, and you will be given into the hand of the enemy.

26. When I have broken your staff of bread, ten women will bake your bread in one oven, and they will return your bread by weight, and you will eat, but you will not be satisfied.

27. And if you will not listen to me in this, but walk contrary to me,

28.then I will walk contrary to you in fury, and I will punish you yet sevenfold for your sins.

29. And you will eat the flesh of your sons, and you will eat the flesh of your daughters.

30. And I will destroy your high places and cut down your sun pillars, and I will pile your corpses upon the corpses of your idols, and my soul will abhor you.

31. And I will make your cities a waste, and make your sacred places desolate, and I will not suffer the stench of your placating aromas.

32. And I, even I, will make the land desolate, and your enemies who settle in it will be appalled at it.

33. And I will scatter you among the nations, and I will draw out a sword after you, and your land will be a desolation, and your cities will be a waste.

34. Then will the land enjoy its sabbath years, all the days of its being desolate while you are in the land of your enemies; then, the land will rest and enjoy its sabbaths.

35. All the days of its being desolate, it will rest, because it did not rest on your sabbaths while you were living on it.

36. And as for those among you who are left alive, I will cause faintness to come into their hearts in the lands of their enemies, and the sound of a shaken leaf will put them to flight, and they will flee as fleeing from a sword, and they will fall, though no one pursues.

37. And they will stumble, each over his brother, as if before a sword, though none pursues. And you will have no power to stand before your enemies.

38. And you will perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies will devour you.

39. And they that are left of you will pine away in their iniquity in your enemies’ lands, and also in the iniquities of their fathers will they pine away with them.

40. But if they confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, in their treachery that they committed against me, and also that they walked contrary to me —

41.I also walked contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies. If then, their uncircumcised heart be humbled, and they then accept their punishment,

42.then I will remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and I will also remember my covenant with Abraham. And I will remember the land.

43. And the land will be abandoned by them, and without them, it will enjoy its sabbaths as it lies desolate. And they will accept their punishment because, even because they despised my judgments, and their soul abhorred my statutes.

44. Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them; neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly and to break my covenant with them. For I am the Lord their God.

45. But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God. I am the Lord.

46. These are the statutes, and the judgments, and the laws which the Lord made between Himself and the children of Israel at Mount Sinai by the hand of Moses.
