20 "'If a man lies carnally with a woman who is a slave girl, pledged to be married to another man, and not ransomed, or given her freedom; they shall be punished. They shall not be put to death, because she was not free. 21 He shall bring his trespass offering to the LORD, to the door of the Tent of Meeting, even a ram for a trespass offering. 22 The priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering before the LORD for his sin which he has committed: and the sin which he has committed shall be forgiven him.

23 "'When you come into the land, and have planted all kinds of trees for food, then you shall count their fruit as forbidden. Three years shall they be forbidden to you. It shall not be eaten. 24 But in the fourth year all its fruit shall be holy, for giving praise to the LORD. 25 In the fifth year you shall eat its fruit, that it may yield its increase to you. I am the LORD your God.

26 "'You shall not eat any meat with the blood still in it; neither shall you practice divination, nor practice sorcery. 27 "'You shall not cut the hair on the sides of your heads, neither shall you clip off the edge of your beard. 28 "'You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you. I am the LORD.

29 "'Do not profane your daughter, to make her a prostitute; lest the land fall to prostitution, and the land become full of wickedness. 30 "'You shall keep my Sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary; I am the LORD.

33 "'If a stranger lives as a foreigner with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. 34 The stranger who lives as a foreigner with you shall be to you as the native-born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you lived as foreigners in the land of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.

35 "'You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in measures of length, of weight, or of quantity. 36 You shall have just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin. I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. 37 You shall observe all my statutes, and all my ordinances, and do them. I am the LORD.'"
