¶And if ye eoffer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the LORD, ye shall offer it at your own will.

6

It fshall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if ought remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire.

7

And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted.

8

¶Thou tshalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but uthou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

19

20

¶And whosoever wlieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid, 2betrothed to an husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given her; 3she shall be scourged; they xshall not be put to death, because she was not free.

21
