Russell Stendal Teaches on Leviticus Chapters 23-25 [Spanish]
Leviticus Chapter 23 (JUB)
1 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the sons of Israel and say unto them, The feasts of the Lord, unto which ye shall make a general convocation of all the people, these shall be my feasts.
3 Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day shall be a sabbath of rest, a holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein; it is the sabbath of the Lord in all your dwellings.
4 These are the feasts of the Lord, the holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their appointed times.
5 On the fourteenth of the first month between the two evenings is the Lord’s passover.
6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the Lord; seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.
7 The first day ye shall have a holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work therein.
8 And ye shall offer an offering on fire unto the Lord seven days; the seventh day shall be a holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work therein.
9 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
10 Speak unto the sons of Israel and say unto them, When ye have entered into the land which I give unto you and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest;
11 and he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord that ye shall be accepted; on the day after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.
12 And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf a he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the Lord.
13 And the present thereof shall be two-tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil in an offering on fire unto the Lord for an acceptable aroma; and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin.
14 And ye shall eat neither bread nor parched grain nor green ears until this same day until ye have offered the offering of your God; it shall be a statute for ever throughout your ages in all your dwellings.
15 And ye shall count unto you from the day after the sabbath, from the day that ye offered the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete;
16 unto the day after the seventh sabbath, ye shall number fifty days; then ye shall offer a new present unto the Lord.
17 Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two-tenth deals; they shall be of fine flour, they shall be baked with leaven, they are the firstfruits unto the Lord.
18 And ye shall offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of the first year and one young bullock and two rams; they shall be for a burnt offering unto the Lord, with their presents and their drink offerings in an offering on fire, of a very acceptable aroma unto the Lord.
19 Then ye shall also sacrifice one he goat as the sin and two lambs of the first year as a sacrifice of peace.
20 And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits for a wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs; they shall be holiness of the Lord for the priest.
21 And ye shall be summoned on that same day; it shall be a holy convocation unto you; ye shall do no servile work: a perpetual statute in all your dwellings throughout your ages.
22 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest; thou shalt leave them for the poor and for the stranger. I AM your God.
23 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
24 Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, In the seventh month in the first day of the month, ye shall have a rest, an alarm for a reminder, and a holy convocation.
25 Ye shall do no servile work therein; but ye shall offer an offering on fire unto the Lord.
26 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
27 But the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the day of reconciliations; it shall be a holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls and offer an offering made on fire unto the Lord.
28 And ye shall do no work in this same day; for it is a day of reconciliations, to reconcile you before the Lord your God.
29 For every person that shall not afflict themselves in that same day, shall be cut off from among his people.
30 And any person that does any work in that same day, the same person will I destroy from among his people.
31 Ye shall do no manner of work; it shall be a perpetual statute throughout your ages in all your dwellings.
32 It shall be unto you a sabbath of sabbaths, and ye shall afflict your souls, beginning in the ninth day of the month in the evening, from evening unto evening, shall ye rest on your sabbath.
33 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
34 Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles unto the Lord for seven days.
35 The first day shall be a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering on fire unto the Lord; the eighth day ye shall have a holy convocation and offer an offering on fire unto the Lord; it is a feast; and ye shall do no servile work therein.
37 These are the feasts of the Lord, unto which ye shall be summoned: holy convocations to offer an offering on fire unto the Lord, a burnt offering and a present, a sacrifice and drink offerings, every thing in its proper time;
38 in addition the sabbaths of the Lord and in addition to your gifts and in addition to all your vows, and in addition to all your freewill offerings, which ye shall give unto the Lord.
39 But in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord seven days; the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall also be a sabbath.
40 And on the first day ye shall take branches with fruit of a beautiful tree, palm branches and the boughs of thick trees and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days.
41 And ye shall keep this feast unto the Lord for seven days each year. It shall be a perpetual statute for your ages; ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.
42 Ye shall dwell in tabernacles seven days; all that are natural of Israel shall dwell in booths,
43 that your descendants may know that I made the sons of Israel to dwell in tabernacles when I brought them out of the land of Egypt. I AM your God.
44 Thus Moses declared unto the sons of Israel the feasts of the Lord.
Leviticus Chapter 24 (JUB)
1 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
2 Command the sons of Israel that they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually.
3 Outside the veil of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the testimony, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning before the Lord continually; it shall be a perpetual statute for all your ages.
4 He shall order the lamps upon the pure lampstand before the Lord continually.
5 And thou shalt take fine flour and bake twelve cakes thereof; each cake shall be of two-tenth deals.
6 And thou shalt set them in two orders, six in each order, upon the clean table before the Lord.
7 And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each order, that it may be on the bread for an aroma and incense unto the Lord.
8 Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the Lord continually: an everlasting covenant of the sons of Israel.
9 And it shall belong to Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in the holy place, for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the Lord on fire, by a perpetual statute.
10 In that season the son of an Israelite woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the sons of Israel; and this son of the Israelite woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp;
11 and the Israelite woman’s son pronounced the Name and cursed; and they brought him unto Moses. And his mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.
12 And they put him in ward that the mind of the Lord might be showed them.
13 And the Lord spoke unto Moses, saying,
14 Bring forth the one that has blasphemed outside the camp and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.
15 And thou shalt speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, The man that speaks evil of his God shall bear his sin.
16 And he that pronounces the name of the Lord shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall certainly stone him; the same with the stranger as with the natural, if he pronounces the Name, he shall be put to death.
17 Likewise he that kills any man shall surely be put to death.
18 And he that kills an animal shall make it good: animal for animal.
19 And if a man causes a blemish in his neighbour; as he has done, so shall it be done to him;
20 breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he has caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again.
21 He that kills an animal shall restore it, but he that kills a man shall be put to death.
22 Ye shall have one manner of law: as for the stranger, so shall it be for the natural; for I am the Lord your God.
23 And Moses spoke to the sons of Israel that they should bring forth the one that had blasphemed out of the camp and stone him with stones. And the sons of Israel did as the Lord commanded Moses.
Leviticus Chapter 25 (JUB)
1 And the Lord spoke unto Moses in Mount Sinai, saying,
2 Speak unto the sons of Israel and say unto them, When ye have come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the Lord.
3 Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard and gather in the fruit thereof,
4 but the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath of rest, a sabbath unto the Lord: thou shalt neither sow thy field nor prune thy vineyard.
5 That which grows of its own accord in thy land that was harvested, thou shalt not reap; neither fence in the grapes of thy consecrated vine; for it is a year of rest unto the land.
6 But the sabbath of the land shall be food for you, for thee and for thy slave and for thy maid and for thy hired servant and for thy stranger that sojourns with thee
7 and for thy beast and for the animals that are in thy land shall all the fruit thereof be food.
8 And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty-nine years.
9 Then shalt thou cause the shofar to sound an alarm on the tenth day of the seventh month; in the day of the reconciliations shall ye cause the shofar to sound throughout all your land.
10 And ye shall sanctify the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof; it shall be a jubilee unto you; and ye shall return every one unto his possession, and ye shall return each one unto his family.
11 A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you; ye shall not sow nor reap that which grows of itself in it nor fence in thy consecrated vine.
12 For it is the jubilee; it shall be holy unto you; ye shall eat the fruit of the land.
13 In this year of jubilee ye shall return each one unto his possession.
14 And if thou sell anything unto thy neighbour or buy anything of thy neighbour’s hand, ye shall not oppress one another.
15 According to the number of years after the jubilee thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee.
16 According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it; for according to the number of the years of the fruits does he sell unto thee.
17 Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God; for I am the Lord your God.
18 Execute, therefore, my statutes and keep my rights and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety;
19 and the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill and dwell therein in safety.
20 And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow nor gather in our fruits,
21 then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.
22 And ye shall sow the eighth year and eat yet of old fruit; until the ninth year, until her fruits come in ye shall eat of the old store.
23 The land shall not be sold for ever, for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.
24 Therefore, in all the land of your possession, ye shall grant a redemption for the land.
25 If thy brother becomes poor and has sold away some of his possession, his redeemer shall come, his closest kinsman, and shall redeem that which his brother sold.
26 And when the man has no redeemer and is able to stretch forth his hand and find enough for his redemption,
27 then he shall count the years from the sale thereof and pay that which remains unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his possession.
28 But if he is not able to stretch forth his hand and find enough to return unto it, then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of the one that has bought it until the year of jubilee; and in the jubilee the land shall go out free, and he shall return unto his possession.
29 And if a man sells a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; within a full year may he redeem it.
30 And if it is not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city shall be established for ever to the one that bought it for his descendants; it shall not go out in the jubilee.
31 But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them shall be counted as the fields of the country; they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubilee.
32 Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites and the houses of the cities of their possession, the Levites may redeem at any time.
33 And if a man makes a purchase from the Levites, then the house that was sold and the city of his possession, shall go out in the year of jubilee; for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the sons of Israel.
34 But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold, for it is their perpetual possession.
35 And if thy brother becomes poor and comes unto thee, then thou shalt receive him; as a stranger, or a sojourner, he shall live with thee.
36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase; but thou shalt have the fear of thy God, and thy brother shall live with thee.
37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy food for increase.
38 I AM your God, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God.
39 And when thy brother becomes poor, being with thee, and if he should sell himself unto thee, thou shalt not compel him to serve as a slave.
40 As a hired servant and as a sojourner, he shall be with thee and shall serve thee unto the year of jubilee.
41 Then he shall depart free from thy house, both he and his children with him, and shall return unto his own family, and unto the possession of his fathers shall he be restored.
42 For they belong to me, I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt; they shall not be sold as slaves.
43 Thou shalt not rule over him with rigor, but shalt fear thy God.
44Both thy menslaves and thy maidslaves, which thou shalt have, shall be of the Gentiles that are round about you; of them shall ye buy slaves.
45 Ye may also buy of the children of the strangers that live among you and of those of their lineage that are born in your land, who are with you, and they shall be your possession.
46 And ye shall possess them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit as a possession; they shall be your bondmen for ever; but over your brethren, the sons of Israel, ye shall not rule over one another with rigor.
47 And if a sojourner or stranger who is with thee becomes rich and thy brother who is with him becomes poor and sells himself unto the stranger or sojourner who is with thee or to the race of the lineage of the stranger,
48 after he is sold he shall have redemption; one of his brethren shall redeem him;
49 either his uncle or his uncle’s son shall redeem him; or any that is near of kin unto him of his lineage shall redeem him; or if he is able, he may redeem himself.
50 And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he was sold to him unto the year of jubilee; and the price of his sale shall be according to the number of years, according to the time of a hired servant shall it be with him.
51 If there are yet many years, according unto them he shall give again the price of his redemption out of the money that he was bought for.
52 And if there remain but few years unto the year of jubilee, then he shall count with him, and according unto his years shall he give him again the price of his redemption.
53 And as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him; and the other shall not rule with rigor over him in thy sight.
54 And if he is not redeemed in these years, then he shall go out in the year of jubilee, both he and his children with him.
55 For the sons of Israel are mine; they are my slaves whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt. I AM your God.
