Deuteronomy 16


16:1 Observe the month Abib, and keep the passover to the LORD
 thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee
 forth from Egypt by night.
16:2 Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover to the LORD thy
 God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD
 shall choose to place his name there.
16:3 Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt
 thou eat unleavened bread with it, [even] the bread of
 affliction; for thou camest forth from the land of Egypt in
 haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth
 from the land of Egypt, all the days of thy life.
16:4 And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all
 thy borders seven days; neither shall there [any thing] of the
 flesh, which thou didst sacrifice the first day at evening,
 remain all night until the morning.
16:5 Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy
 gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
16:6 But at the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to
 place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at
 evening, at the setting of the sun, at the time of thy
 departure from Egypt.
16:7 And thou shalt roast and eat [it] in the place which the
 LORD thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning,
 and go to thy tents.
16:8 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the
 seventh day [shall be] a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God:
 [in it] thou shalt do no work.
16:9 Seven weeks shalt thou number to thee: begin to number the
 seven weeks from [the time when] thou beginnest [to put] the
 sickle to the corn.
16:10 And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks to the LORD thy God
 with a tribute of a free-will-offering of thy hand, which thou
 shalt give [to the LORD thy God], according as the LORD thy God
 hath blessed thee:
16:11 And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and
 thy son, and thy daughter, and thy man-servant, and thy
 maid-servant, and the Levite that [is] within thy gates, and
 the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that [are]
 among you, in the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to
 place his name there.
16:12 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bond-man in
 Egypt: and thou shalt observe and do these statutes.
16:13 Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days,
 after that thou hast gathered in thy corn, and thy wine.
16:14 And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son,
 and thy daughter, and thy man-servant, and thy maid-servant,
 and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the
 widow, that [are] within thy gates:
16:15 Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast to the LORD thy
 God in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the LORD
 thy God shall bless thee in all thy increase, and in all the
 works of thy hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.
16:16 Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before
 the LORD thy 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:
16:17 Every man [shall give] as he is able, according to the
 blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee.
16:18 Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates,
 which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and
 they shall judge the people with just judgment.
16:19 Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect
 persons, neither take a gift; for a gift doth blind the eyes of
 the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.
16:20 That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou
 mayest live, and inherit the land which the LORD thy God giveth
 thee.
16:21 Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near to the
 altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt make for thee.
16:22 Neither shalt thou set thee up [any] image; which the LORD
 thy God hateth.
