Leviticus 24:3 Without the vail of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the congregation, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning before the LORD continually. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations.

Leviticus 24:4 He shall order the lamps upon the pure candlestick before the LORD continually.

Leviticus 24:5 And thou shalt take fine flour and bake twelve cakes thereof.(this came to know as the shewbread, the shewbread only the priests could eat, but which David and his men ate when they were hungry anyway, because David saw a greater righteousness that the rigorisms of the old covenant:.Matthew 1;12:3-7); two tenth deals shall be in one cake.

Leviticus 24:6-9 And you shall set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before the LORD. And you shall put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the LORD. Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant. And it shall be Aaron's and his sons.(which were the priesthood and the only ones allowed to eat the shewbread:.Matthew 12:3,4).and they shall eat it in the holy place. For it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the LORD made by fire by a perpetual.statute.

Leviticus 24:10,11 And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel: and this son of the Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp; And the Israelitish woman's son blasphemed the name of the LORD, and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.

Leviticus 24:12 And they put him in ward that the mind of the LORD might be showed them.

Leviticus 24:16 And he that blasphemes the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death and all the congregation shall certainly stone him; as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemes the name of the LORD, shall be put to death.

Leviticus 24:20 Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. As he has caused a blemish.(original is 'physical defect').in a man, so shall it be done to him again..(Matthew 5:38)

Leviticus 24:22 You shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country, for I am the LORD your God..(God respects humans but God is not a respecter of persons)

Leviticus 25:1-7 And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai.(Exodus 34:29-32), saying, Speak unto the children of Israel and say unto them, When you come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD. Six years thou shalt sow thy field and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard and gather in the fruit thereof, but in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD. Thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard. That which growes of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed, for it is a year of rest unto the land. And the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you.(they were not to reap as in other years in which they reaped and stored, no doubt for trading and sale, but they could live off the land as they needed), for thee and for thy servant and for thy maid and for thy hired servant and for thy stranger that sojourns with thee and for thy cattle and for the beast that are in thy land, shall all the increase thereof be meat.

Leviticus 25:8,9 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 and nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement.(Leviticus 23:26-44).shall you make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.

Leviticus 25:10-17 And you shall hallow the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof. It shall be a jubilee unto you and you shall return every man unto his possession and you shall return every man unto his family. A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be unto you. You shall not sow, neither reap that which grows of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of your vine undressed. For it is the jubilee. It shall be holy unto you. You shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. In the year of this jubilee you shall return every man unto his possession. And if you sell unto your neighbour or buyest of your neighbour's hand, you shall not oppress one another. According to the number of years after the jubilee you shall buy of your neighbour and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto you. According to the multitude of years you shall increase the price thereof and according to the fewness of years you shall diminish the price of it, for according to the number of the years of the fruits does he sell unto you. You shall not therefore oppress one another, but you shall fear your God, for I am the LORD your God.

Leviticus 25:10-17 And you shall hallow the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof. It shall be a jubilee unto you and you shall return every man unto his possession and you shall return every man unto his family.(no more slavery; was to be a family time where if they had been working away from the family, often as a slave, they were now to go back to them, permanently out of slavery). A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you. You shall not sow, neither reap that which grows of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of your vine undressed. For it is the jubile. It shall be holy unto you. You shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. In the year of this jubilee you shall return every man unto his possession.(if he was your slave you are to return him freely; let him go:.Exodus 21:1,2; if you had any possession of his for any reason, such as his home, you are to give it to him). And if you sell unto your neighbour or buyest of your neighbour's hand, you shall not oppress one another.(Clarke's Commentary: "You shall take no advantage of each other's ignorance either in buying or selling, for he that buys an article at less than it is worth or sells one for more than it is worth, takes advantage in both cases of the ignorance of the vender or buyer and is no better than a thief, as he actually robs his neighbour of as much property as he has bought the article at below or sold it above its current value."). According to the number of years after the jubile you shall buy of your neighbour and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto you.(Clarke's Commentary: "The purchases that were to be made of lands were to be regulated by the number of years unelapsed of the current jubilee. This was something like buying the unexpired term of a lease among us; the purchase is always regulated by the number of years between the time of purchase and the expiration of the term."). According to the multitude of years you shall increase the price thereof and according to the fewness of years you shall diminish the price of it, for according to the number of the years of the fruits does he sell unto you. You shall not therefore oppress one another, but you shall fear thy God, for I am the LORD your God.

Leviticus 25:18-22 Wherefore you shall do my statutes and keep my judgments and do them and you shall dwell in the land in safety. And the land shall yield her fruit and you shall eat your fill and dwell therein in safety. And if you shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase, then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year and it shall bring forth fruit for three years. And you shall sow the eighth year and eat yet of old fruit until the ninth year. Until her fruits come in you shall eat of the old store.

Leviticus 25:23 The land shall not be sold for ever, for the land is mine.(Exodus 19:5), for you are strangers and sojourners with me.

Leviticus 25:24 And in all the land of your possession you shall grant a redemption for the land.

Leviticus 25:25-30 If your brother be waxen poor.(has become poor).and has sold away some of his possession and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold. And if the man have none to redeem it and himself be able to redeem it, then let him count the years of the sale thereof and restore the overplus unto the man to whom he sold it, that he may return unto his possession. But if he be not able to restore it to him, then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of him that has bought it until the year of.jubile.(verses 10-17 above).and in the jubile it shall go out and he shall return unto his possession. And if a man sell 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. And if it be not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city shall be established forever to him that bought it throughout his generations; it shall not go out in the jubile..

Leviticus 25:31 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 jubile.

Leviticus 25:32 Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites and the houses of the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time.

Leviticus 25:35 And if your brother be waxen poor and fallen in decay with you.(among you), then you shall relieve him. Yea, though he be a stranger or a sojourner, that he may live with you..(more on the poor amongst you:.John 12:8)

Leviticus 25:36 Take you no usury of him or increase.(that's from a person you know, a personal loan to help him, but a business deal is different: Luke 19:23). But fear your God, that your brother may live with you..(for who would want to live with someone who was not of the higher consciousness of the Creator?)

Leviticus 25:37 You shalt not give him your money upon usury.(don't charge him any interest on a personal loan; a business deal is a different story), nor lend.(original here for word 'lend' is 'give').him your victuals for increase.(don't ever charge for or expect back any food you may have provided, just give it!).

Leviticus 25:39,40 And if your brother that dwells by you be waxen poor and be sold unto you, you shall not compel him to serve as a bondservant. But as an hired servant and as a sojourner he shall be with you and shall serve you unto the year of jubilee.(verses 10-17).

Leviticus 25:41-43 And then shall he depart from you, both he and his children with him and shall return unto his own family and unto the possession of his fathers shall he return. For they are my servants, which I brought forth out of the land of Egypt. They shall not be sold as bondmen. You shall not rule over him with rigor, but shalt fear your God

Leviticus 25:44-55 Both your bondmen and your bondmaids, which you shall have shall be of the heathen.(original for 'heathen' is 'nations').that are round about you. Of them shall you buy bondmen and bondmaids. Moreover of the children of the strangers that do sojourn among you, of them shall you buy and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land and they shall be your possession. And you shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit them for a possession. They shall be your bondmen for ever. But over your brethren the children of Israel, you shall not rule one over another with rigour. And if a sojourner or stranger wax rich by you and your brother that dwells by him wax poor and sells himself unto the stranger or sojourner by you, or to the stock of the stranger's family; After that he is sold he may be redeemed again. One of his brethren may redeem him: Either his uncle, or his uncle's son, may redeem him, or any that is nigh of kin unto him of his family may redeem him, or if he be able, he may redeem himself. And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he was sold to him unto the year of jubile and the price of his sale shall be according unto the number of years, according to the time of an hired servant shall it be with him. If there be yet many years behind, according unto them he shall give again the price of his redemption out of the money that he was bought for. And if there remain but few years unto the year of jubile, then he shall count with him and according unto his years shall he give him again the price of his redemption. And as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him and the other shall not rule with rigour over him in your sight. And if he be not redeemed in these years, then he shall go out in the year of jubile, both he and his children with him. For unto me the children of Israel are servants. They are my servants whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.

Leviticus 26:3 If you walk in my statutes and keep my commandments and do them,

And, what are they today.(Matthew 22:36-40).now that the Old Testament Mosaic Law has been abolished?

Leviticus 26:4 Then I will give you rain in due season and the land shall yield her increase and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. 

Leviticus 26:5 And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time and you shall eat your bread to the full and dwell in your land safely. 

Leviticus 26:6,7 And I will give peace in the land and you shall lie down and none shall make you afraid and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. And you shall chase your enemies and they shall fall before you by the sword.

But this just wasn't good enough for them to have a heart for God. Like what is it with people? nothing is good enough, nothing is satisfying enough. At the ego level of life it's never enough; one would think people would learn, but alas, they are still the same thousands of years later, so what's missing?

Leviticus 26:8 And five of you shall chase an hundred and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.

Leviticus 26:14,15 But if you will not hearken unto me and will not do all these commandments; And if you shall despise my statutes or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that you will not do all my commandments, but that you break my covenant.

Leviticus 26:18 And if you will not yet for all this hearken unto me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.

Leviticus 26:19-21 And I will break the pride of your power and I will make your heaven as iron and your earth as brass. And your strength shall be spent in vain, for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits. And if you walk contrary unto me.(how are we out of sync with this Great Infinite Conscious Energy?).and will not hearken unto me; I will bring seven times more plagues upon you according to your sins.(sin is 'missing the mark' of love and continuing on increasing selfishness,.missing the mark of what?).

The world is a stage for our learning to come out of selfishness and control over others:.Joel 1:12; Micah 4:4.

Leviticus 26:29 And you shall eat the flesh of your sons and daughters.

Leviticus 26:31 And I will make your cities waste and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours.(Amos 5:21).

Leviticus 26:34 Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths, as long as it lies desolate and you be in your enemies' land, even then shall the land rest and enjoy her sabbaths.

Leviticus 26:39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies' lands and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.

Leviticus 26:40-45 If they shall confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me and that also they have walked contrary unto me and that I also have walked contrary unto them and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity, then will I remember my covenant with.(Exodus 19:7,8).Jacob and also my covenant with Isaac and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember and I will remember the land. The land also shall be left of them and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while it lies desolate without them and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity, because, even because they despised my judgments and because their soul abhorred my statutes. And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly and to break my covenant with them, for I am the LORD their God. 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.

Leviticus 27:30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD'S. It is holy unto the LORD.

Leviticus 27:31 And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof. 

Leviticus 27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd or of the flock, even of whatsoever passes under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.

Comprised with Adam Clarke's Commentary: When a man was to give the tithe of his sheep or calves to God, he was to shut up the whole flock in one fold, in which there was one narrow door capable of letting out one at a time. The owner, about to give the tenth to the Lord, stood by the door with a rod in his hand, the end of which was dipped in vermilion or red ochre. The mothers of those lambs or calves stood without the fold, the door being opened, the young ones ran out to join themselves to their dams and as they passed out the owner stood with his rod over them and counted one, two, three, four, five, etc. and when the tenth came, he touched it with the colored rod, by which it was distinguished to be the tithe calf, sheep, etc. It seems to be in reference to this custom that Ezekiel, speaking to Israel, had this to say of God:.Ezekiel 20:34-37

Leviticus 27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
