Deuteronomy 16

1. “Keep the month of Abib, and observe the Passover to the LORD your God. For in the month of Abib, the LORD your God brought you forth out of Egypt by night.

2. And you shall therefore sacrifice the Passover offering to the LORD your God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD shall choose to place His name there.

3. You shall eat no leavened bread with it. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread with it, the bread of affliction, for you came forth out of the land of Egypt in haste, so that you may remember the day that you came forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life.

4. And there shall be no leaven seen with you in all your borders for seven days. Nor shall any of the flesh which you sacrificed in the first day at sunset remain all night until the morning.

5. You may not sacrifice the Passover offering within any of your gates which the LORD your God gives you,

6. But at the place which the LORD your God shall choose to place His name in, there you shall sacrifice the Passover offering at sunset, at the going down of the sun, at the time that you came out of Egypt.

7. And you shall boil and eat it in the place which the LORD your God shall choose. And in the morning you shall turn and go to your tents.

8. Six days you shall eat unleavened bread. And on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to the LORD your God. You shall do no work.

9. You shall count seven weeks to yourselves. Begin to count the seven weeks from the time you first began to put the sickle to the grain.

10. And you shall keep the Feast of Weeks to the LORD your God according to the sufficiency of a freewill offering from your hand, which you shall give according as the LORD your God has blessed you.

11. And you shall rejoice before the LORD your God, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your male servant, and your female servant, and the Levite inside your gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless,and the widow, those among you, in the place which the LORD your God has chosen to place His name there.

12. And you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt. And you shall be careful to do these statutes.

13. You shall keep the Feast of Tabernacles seven days, after you have gathered in from your threshing floor and your wine press.

14. And you shall rejoice in your feast, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your male servants, and your female servants, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow within your gates.

15. Seven days you shall keep a solemn feast to the LORD your God in the place which the LORD shall choose. Because the LORD your God shall bless you in all your increase, and in all the works of your hands, therefore you shall surely rejoice.

16. Three times in a year shall all your males appear before the LORD your God in the place which He shall choose: in the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and in the Feast of Weeks, and in the Feast of Tabernacles. And they shall not appear before the LORD empty,

17. Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God, which He has given you.

18. You shall appoint judges and officers for yourself in all your gates which the LORD your God gives you, tribe by tribe. And they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.

19. You shall not pervert judgment; you shall not respect persons, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous.

20. You shall follow that which is altogether just so that you may live and inherit the land which the LORD your God gives you.

21. You shall not set up for yourself pillars of any trees near the altar of the LORD your God which you shall make for yourself.

22. Nor shall you set up any image which thing the LORD your God hates.”
