     Hello.

There are many laws given in the scriptures. I will try to document them so that it is easier for me to know and obey them. Some of the laws are for Israelites only, such as the Passover and the Week of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Weeks, and the Feast of Tabernacles. And some are for Levites only, regarding temple practices. If you would like to read all 613 of the Laws given to Israelites in the Torah, you can do so at jewfaq.org/613.htm.

But guess what? After all these years, I am certain that most of the people in the world have the blood of Jacob (Israel) in them! Remember the "lost ten tribes"? Where is their blood? Everywhere? Most of the European nations seem to be directly descended from the 'ten tribes', and their blood has mingled with the rest of humanity. Remember when Solomon seduced the Queen of Sheba (Queen Makeda of Ethiopia)? Legend has it that she bore him a son (Menelik I), whom Solomon knew, and from there the blood of Israel went even farther. And many places in the scripture claimed that Jacob's children would spread and cover the entire earth. 2000 years ago the 10 tribes were not lost - they were not in Israel the promised land, but they knew who they were:
Nazarenes 17:1. AND Yahushua went up into a mountain to pray. And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits to cast them out and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. Now the names of the twelve apostles are these who stood for the twelve tribes of Israel:
2. Peter, called Cephas, for the tribe of Reuben; James, for the tribe of Naphtali; Thomas, called Dydimus, for the tribe of Zabulon; Matthew, called Levi for the tribe of Gad; Yahchanan, for the tribe of Ephraim; Simon, for the tribe of Issachar.
3. Andrew, for the tribe of Yosef; Nathanael, for the tribe of Simeon; Thaddeus, for the tribe of Zabulon; Jacob, for the tribe of Benjamin; Jude, for the tribe of Dan; Philip, for the tribe of Asher. And Judas Iscariot, a Levite, who betrayed him, was also among them (but he was not of them). And Matthia and Barsabbas were also present with them.
4. Then he called in like manner twelve others to be Prophets, men of light to be with the Apostle and show unto them the hidden things of Yahweh. And their names were Hermes, Aristobulus, Selenius, Nereus, Apollos, and Barsabbas; Andronicus, Lucius, Apelles, Zachaeus, Urbanus, and Clementos. And then he called twelve who should be Evangelists, and twelve who should be Pastors. A fourfold twelve did he call that he might send them forth to the twelve tribes of Israel, unto each, four.
5. And they stood around the Master, clad in white linen raiment, called to be a set-apart priesthood unto Yahweh for the service of the twelve tribes whereunto they should be sent.
6. These fourfold Twelve Yahushua sent forth and charged them, saying, I will that you be my Twelve Apostles with your companions, for a testimony into Israel. Go you into the cities of Israel and to the lost sheep of the House of Israel. And as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. As I have baptized you in water, so you baptize them who believe.

And sometimes when a law is given to the Israelites, it comes with the admonition that the other nations do not follow those laws, and that is why Yahweh abhorrs and destroys them. So if a law is for the Israelites only, and you aspire to live forever with Yahweh - do you think it would be a good idea to obey the Israelite laws - as well as the rest of them? Do you want to be abhorred and destroyed? Consider these quotes from the Humane Gospel of the Essenes:
"even that Yahweh is not partial to His creation, but is good to all and gives them His set-apart Law as light unto their feet in a world of gross darkness. For the true tribe of Israel is any man who keeps the set-apart law, even as the law was given unto all men...."

"For who are the Israel of Yahweh? Even they of every nation and tribe who work righteousness, love, mercy, and keep my commandments, these are the true Israel of Yahweh."

And so it may seem strange that I will start this page with a set of laws which are not given in normal scripture - the Seven Laws of Noah. The Jews tell us that Gentiles are NOT ALLOWED to keep the "Jewish Torah", meaning that we would be punished for keeping the seventh-day sabbath!! We are only allowed to keep the Seven Laws of Noah. I personally believe that is ridiculous, expecially after reading those last two quotes. Maybe the canonical catholic scripture only orders the Israelites to keep the sabbath, however, it does not forbid the rest of us. And good grief, haven't they ever read Isaiah 56? It is obvious that we should ALL keep Yahweh's sabbath.

Oh, but guess what? Jews are not the only Israelites. Strictly speaking, Jews are decendants of Judah, one of the thirteen tribes (yes, there are 13, count 'em! Yosef was given two shares through his sons, and Levi did not receive a share of the land). Widely speaking, Jews are inhabitants of the nation of Judah, which only includes the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, and most of Levi. The "Lost Ten Tribes" are Israelites, but not Jews. To further complicate it, the Jews consider the faith to be "Judaism", thus seeming to rule out the Ten Tribes. But those Ten Lost Tribes are now gentiles, as they were divorced by Yahweh and removed from the promised land when they refused to keep the covenant. But they are still Israelites. So we only learn about the Noahide commandments from the Jews, hmmm, seems a bit fishy to me! If I am commanded by Yahweh to keep some law, why don't the scriptures say so? Why should I have to rely on the Jews to tell me? These are the same Jews who took Yahweh out of the scriptures, maybe their motivation is not pure? Maybe their source of information was corrupted? Maybe they should check on those quotes from the Essenes I showed above?

The 7 Laws of Noah are essentially the same as the 10 Commandments, except the sabbath day is missing. Supposedly six of these laws were given to Adam and Eve, and the seventh was given to Noah. Noah got the one about not eating blood, because Adam was not allowed to eat meat and didn't need that one. Oh, that's funny, in the First Book of Adam and Eve, we read that they did keep the weekly sabbath day, even going so far as to recognize that the sixth day was the preparation day:
Adam and Eve 48:20 Then Adam said to Eve, with joy of heart, because of the offering they had made to Yahweh, and that had been accepted of Him, "Let us do this three times every week, on the fourth day Wednesday, on the preparation day Friday, and on the Sabbath Saturday, all the days of our life."

Adam and Eve 56:6 to give you a day of rest as I gave you;
So there are good reasons to think that all creation is required to keep the seventh-day sabbath. The seventh-day sabbath could be construed to be included in either or both of the first two laws. Nevertheless, here are
       the Seven Laws of Noah:

1) Respect and praise Yahweh, and recognize that He created all things.
2) Do not blaspheme or curse Yahweh.
3) Do not murder or oppress your fellow man.
4) Do not have adulterous, incestuous, bestial, or homosexual relationships.
5) Do not steal.
6) Do not eat a limb torn from a live animal.
7) Establish human laws and courts of justice.

All of these 7 Laws are said to come from Genesis Chapter Nine, but those who say so must not have actually read the chapter! Because in it I find only these three commandments: 9:1 Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. 9:4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, you shall not eat. 9:5 And surely your blood, the blood of your lives, will I require; - that is only three commandments. Multiply, do not eat blood, and, do not murder. And the Jubilees covers the same ground, but has only the same three commandments. Anyone who sees the Seven Laws in there, should also see the sabbath requirement in there.

Number Six above is commonly thought to mean to avoid cruelty to animals. At face-value it implies that you should not eat part of an animal which is still alive. Here in the USA this is a serious issue. Recent investigations show that many animals ARE cut up while still alive, in disregard to humane slaughter practices. (google: slaughterhouse practice) So when you eat commercial meat you have no idea whether you are obeying the command, and in fact, most meat eaters will sometimes eat meat torn from a living animal without knowing it.

But I think there is a much deeper meaning to Number Six. Noah was in fact told to not eat blood because that is the life of an animal. So if an animal is what we today refer to as 'dead', even if its head is removed, but the blood was not thoroughly drained out, then apparently you are eating meat from a 'live' animal according Yahweh's definition. You are eating the life of the animal. And the blood which is drained out in slaughterhouses is mixed with water and fecal material and is sent to a waste-water treatment plant, not covered with dust as Yahweh commanded. And so, even though Genesis 9 does not say anything about limbs from live animals, it does command an even deeper Law.

And so let me mention that the prohibition against eating blood with your meat IS given to ALL humanity, through Noah. In the USA the blood is supposed to be drained out of our meat, but given the sloppy practices, there is no confidence that all of it was drained properly. And since slaughterhouses seem to be run by greedy people, they must know that meat with the blood in it weighs more, and therefore they get more money per animal. I know that when I cook a commercially purchased steak, there is blood in it.

Here in the USA I believe all of these 7 Laws are being violated. People lie and steal and deny Yahweh, sexual deviancy is rampant, and the courts are no longer about "justice".

I failed to find the 7 Laws of Noah as a unit in the scriptures. The closest thing I found is quoted below, but if you will notice that: ordinances, commandments, and judgments are each plurals, so it certainly sounds like a total of more than Seven Laws. Much later six of the Seven are included in the Ten Commandments. And I did find that Adam and Eve kept the seventh-day sabbath. As I have documented elsewhere, I believe Yahweh gave a set of laws to Adam and Eve and to all of their decendants since. Abraham obeyed these laws well before the time of Moses; notice that "charge, commandments, statutes, and laws" sound like a lot more than seven. And Moses proved that the law existed before Sinai (the written Torah), if you read Exodus 18:13-16 "and I do make them know the statutes of Yahweh, and His laws." And since Malachi 3:6 says "For I am Yahweh, I do not change;" it looks like the written Torah would've been the same law given to Adam and Eve, and everyone since. And so while I do think it is correct for all humans to obey these Seven Laws of Noah, I think it is correct for all humans to obey the sabbath day also.
Jubilees 7:20 And in the twenty-eighth jubilee [1324-1372 A.M.] Noah began to enjoin upon his sons' sons the ordinances and commandments, and all the judgments that he knew, and he exhorted his sons to observe righteousness, and to cover the shame of their flesh, and to bless their Creator, and honor father and mother, and love their neighbor, and guard their souls from fornication and uncleanness and all iniquity.
28 For whoso sheds man's blood, and whoso eats the blood of any flesh, shall all be destroyed from the earth.
29 And there shall not be left any man who eats blood, or who sheds the blood of man on the earth, nor shall there be left to him any seed or descendants living under heaven; for into Sheol shall they go, and into the place of condemnation shall they descend, and into the darkness of the deep shall they all be removed by a violent death.
30 There shall be no blood seen upon you of all the blood there shall be all the days in which you have killed any beasts or cattle or whatever flies upon the earth, and work you a good work to your souls by covering that which has been shed on the face of the earth.
31 And you shall not be like him who eats with blood, but guard yourselves that none may eat blood before you: cover the blood, for thus have I been commanded to testify to you and your children, together with all flesh.
32 And suffer not the soul to be eaten with the flesh, that your blood, which is your life, may not be required at the hand of any flesh that sheds (it) on the earth.
33 For the earth will not be clean from the blood which has been shed upon it; for (only) through the blood of him that shed it will the earth be purified throughout all its generations.

Jasher 26:24 and he said unto me, To your seed will I give all these lands, and they shall inherit them when they keep my commandments, my statutes and my judgments that I have commanded you, and which I shall command them.
25 Now therefore my son, hearken to my voice, and keep the commandments of Yahweh, which I commanded you, do not turn from the right way either to the right or to the left, in order that it may be well with you and your children after you forever.
27 And teach your children and your seed the instructions of Yahweh and his commandments, and teach them the upright way in which they should go, in order that it may be well with them forever.
28 And Isaac answered his father ...

Genesis 26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments (mitzwah), my statutes, and my laws (torah).

Genesis 9:3 Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; as the green herb I have given you all. 4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, you shall not eat.

Leviticus 17:10 And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, who eats any manner of blood, I will set my face against that soul which eats blood, and will cut him off from among his people. 13 And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, who takes in hunting any beast or bird that may be eaten; he shall pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust. (Leviticus 3:17 and 7:23-27 also say: "Eat no fat nor blood")
And so if we were to follow the Jewish train of thought while reading that last Torah from Leviticus 17, it would seem as if only Jews are prohibited from eating blood. But it is obvious that all humans were prohibited from it. So I think it is a good idea to question whatever the Jews believe, knowing that they make many errors (which is why they were evicted from the promised land, twice!). It looks to me like the seventh-day sabbath IS for all people! I understood that the Israelites were to be an EXAMPLE to all people as to how to live. They were to teach us proper behavior, and not to assume they are special. We were to see how it went well with them, and then be motivated to learn and behave the same way. No? Romans and Galatians show that we are all called to obey the same law of Moses. If we are righteous, we are grafted into the nation of Israel. Should you keep the "Israelite" laws? Consider:
The Humane Gospel of the Essenes: "This is why I say unto you, Behold, One greater than Moses is here in your midst, and I give unto you the Highest Law, the perfect and complete law, nay, not a new law, but an old law even as Adam and Enoch and Noah did receive. Yea, this law did the Prophets and Elect believe, and it continued up till Yahchanan; it changes not but remains true in form and detail, even this Law of Love shall you obey."

The Humane Gospel of the Essenes: "For I tell you, the set-apart Law of Moses and Adam are one; even as my Prophets spoke unto Israel, I speak."

The Humane Gospel of the Essenes: "Nay, against Moses I speak not, nor against the ancient law that always was; but against those who corrupted the law I do speak out!"

Humane Gospel of the Essenes: "And also Jeremiah did bear testimony when he said, concerning blood offerings and sacrifice: 'I the True Yahweh Commanded none of these things in the day that you came out of Egypt, but only this I commanded you: To do righteousness, walk in the ancient paths of My laws, so as to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with Yahweh"

The Humane Gospel of the Essenes: "And I tell you this day, they are gathered out from every tribe and every nation, and every race, and every tongue. For they come from the East and the West, and the North and the South. Yea, this be the true Israel of Yahweh, that dwells on Mt. Zion, and they eat bread and drink of the fruit of the vine at the set-apart table of Yahweh, and they come to know and see Yahweh face to face. For know you the set-apart Law was given unto every nation of men who would walk humbly before the True Yahweh, and out from every nation comes those who keep my law to salvation. Indeed, these are the true Israel of Yahweh. For I tell you, by a race, Yahweh judges not the souls of men, but by the heart of man whosoever walks by the Pure Oblation, walks in the set-apart path of Yahweh and is saved."

The Humane Gospel of the Essenes: "Yahweh has raised up testimony to the truth in every nation and in every age, that all might know the will of the Eternal All and do it. Yea, the set-apart Law has been given unto all men, even from the very beginning with Adam. For I say unto you, only by doing the will of the Eternal shall you enter into the kingdom, and be rulers and workers within the kingdom."

Romans 2:10 but glory and honor and peace to every man who works good, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek: 11 for there is no respect of persons with Yahweh. 12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without the law: and as many as have sinned under the law shall be judged by the law; 13 for not the hearers of the law are just before Yahweh, but the doers of the law shall be justified:

Romans 11:17 But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them, and did become partaker with them of the root of the fatness of the olive tree;

Galatians 3:26 For you are all sons of Yahweh, through faith, in Mashiyach Yahushua. 27 For as many of you as were immersed into Mashiyach did put on Mashiyach. 28 There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither bond nor free, there can be no male and female; for you all are one man in Mashiyach Yahushua. 29 And if you are Mashiyach's, then you are Abraham's seed, heirs according to promise.


1John 5:2 Hereby we know that we love the children of Yahweh, when we love Yahweh and do His commandments. 3 For this is the love of Yahweh, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous.



 
     Laws of Yahushua:

Matthew 19:36 Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 And He said unto him, you shall love Yahweh your Father with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.
38 This is the great and first commandment.
39 And a second like unto it is this, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.

Matthew 4:10 Then said Yahushua unto him, Get you away, Satan: for it is written, you shall worship Yahweh your Father, and Him only shall you serve.

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I came to destroy the law or the prophets: I came not to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass away from the law, till all things be accomplished.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no way enter into the kingdom of heaven.
21 You have heard that it was said to them of old time, you shall not murder; and whosoever shall murder shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 but I say unto you, that every one who is angry with his brother shall be in danger of the judgment; and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council; and whosoever shall say, you fool, shall be in danger of the gehenna of fire.
23 If therefore you are offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother has anything against you,
24 leave there your gift before the altar, and go your way, first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
25 Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are with him in the way; lest haply the adversary deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be cast into prison.
26 Verily I say unto you, you shall by no means come out of there, till you have paid the last farthing.
27 You have heard that it was said, you shall not commit adultery:
28 but I say unto you, that every one that looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.
29 And if your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out, and cast it from you: for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not your whole body be cast into gehenna.
30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off, and cast it from you: for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not your whole body go into gehenna.
31 It was said also, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:
32 but I say unto you, that every one that puts away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, makes her an adulteress: and whosoever shall marry her when she is put away commits adultery.
33 Again, you have heard that it was said to them of old time, you shall not forswear yourself, but shall perform unto Yahweh your oaths:
34 but I say unto you, swear not at all; neither by the heaven, for it is the throne of Yahweh;
35 nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.
36 Neither shall you swear by your head, for you can not make one hair white or black.
37 But let your speech be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: and whatsoever is more than these is of the evil one.
38 You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
39 but I say unto you, resist not him that is evil: but whosoever smites you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man would go to law with you, and take away your coat, let him have your cloak also.
41 And whosoever shall compel you to go one mile, go with him two.
42 Give to him that asks you, and from him that would borrow of you turn you not away.
43 You have heard that it was said, you shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy:
44 but I say unto you, love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you;
45 that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven: for He makes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust.
46 For if you love them that love you, what reward have you? Do not even the publicans the same?
47 And if you salute your brethren only, what do you more than others? Do not even the Gentiles the same?
48 You therefore shall be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect.

Matthew 6:1 Take heed that you do not your righteousness before men, to be seen of them: else you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven.
2 When therefore you do alms, sound not a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have received their reward.
3 But when you do alms, let not your left hand know what your right hand does:
4 that your alms may be in secret: and your Father who sees in secret shall recompense you.
5 And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites: for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have received their reward.
6 But you, when you pray, enter into your inner chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees in secret shall recompense you.
7 And in praying use not vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not therefore like unto them: for your Father knows what things you have need of, before you ask Him.
9 After this manner therefore pray you. Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be your Name.
10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done, as in heaven, so on earth.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you.
15 But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 Moreover when you fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may be seen of men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have received their reward.
17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head, and wash your face;
18 that you not be seen of men to fast, but of your Father who is in secret: and your Father, who sees in secret, shall recompense you.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon the earth, where moth and rust consume, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust does consume, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The lamp of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye be single, your whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if your eye be evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you be darkness, how great is the darkness!
24 No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. You cannot serve Yahweh and mammon.
25 Therefore I say unto you, be not anxious for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than the food, and the body than the raiment?
26 Behold the birds of the heaven, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; and your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you of much more value then they?
27 And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit unto the measure of his life?
28 And why are you anxious concerning raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 yet I say unto you, that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 But if Yahweh does so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 Be not therefore anxious, saying, What shall we eat? Or, What shall we drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32 For after all these things do the Gentiles seek; for your Heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.
33 But seek you first His kingdom, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Be not therefore anxious for the morrow: for the morrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that you be not judged.
2 For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured unto you.
3 And why do you behold the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye?
4 Or how will you say to your brother, Let me cast out the mote out of your eye; and lo, the beam is in your own eye?
5 You hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother's eye.
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast your pearls before the swine, lest haply they trample them under their feet, and turn and rend you.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 for every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there of you, who, if his son shall ask him for a loaf, will give him a stone;
10 or if he shall ask for a fish, will give him a serpent?
11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask Him?
12 All things therefore whatsoever you would that men should do unto you, even so do you also unto them: for this is the law and the prophets.
13 Enter you in by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many are they that enter in thereby.
14 For narrow is the gate, and straitened the way, that leads unto life, and few are they that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves.
16 By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but the corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Therefore by their fruits you shall know them.
21 Not every one that says unto me, Master, Master, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Master, Master, did we not prophesy by your Name, and by your Name cast out demons, and by your Name do many mighty works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, you that work iniquity.
24 Every one therefore that hears these words of mine, and does them, shall be likened unto a wise man, who built his house upon the rock:
25 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and if fell not: for it was founded upon the rock.
26 And every one that hears these words of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand:
27 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and smote upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall thereof.
28 And it came to pass, when Yahushua had finished these words, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching:
29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.

Matthew 18:8 And if your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off, and cast it from you: it is good for you to enter into life maimed or halt, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into the eternal fire.
9 And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out, and cast it from you: it is good for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the gehenna of fire.
10 See that you despise not one of these little ones;
20 For where two or three are gathered together in my Name, there am I in the midst of them.

Matthew 19:8 He said unto them, Moses for your hardness of heart suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it has not been so.
9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except for fornication, and shall marry another, commits adultery: and he that marries her when she is put away commits adultery.

Matthew 19:17 And He said unto him, Why ask you Me concerning that which is good? One there is who is good: but if you would enter into life, keep the commandments.
18 He said unto him, Which? And Yahushua said, You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not bear false witness,
19 Honor your father and mother; and, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.
20 The young man said unto Him, All these things have I observed: what lack I yet?
21 Yahushua said unto him, If you would be perfect, go, sell that which you have, and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come, follow Me.

Matthew 20:26 Not so shall it be among you: but whosoever would become great among you shall be your minister;
27 and whosoever would be first among you shall be your servant:

Mark 11:25 And whensoever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any one; that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Mark 12:28 What commandment is the first of all?
29 Yahushua answered, The first is, Hear, O Israel; Yahweh our Father, Yahweh is one: [Deuteronomy 6:4 is the greatest verse in Judaism]
30 and you shall love Yahweh your Father with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.
31 The second is this, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There are no other commandments greater than these.

Luke 16:17 But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than for one tittle of the law to fall.
18 Every one that puts away his wife, and marries another, commits adultery: and he that marries one that is put away from a husband commits adultery.

Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: if your brother sin, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
4 And if he sin against you seven times in the day, and seven times turn again to you, saying, I repent; you shall forgive him.





 
     Laws of Yahweh:



Yahshua our Savior named the two greatest Laws (Matthew 22:36-40). But don't forget that Yahweh Himself also gave us a Greatest Law. It is reflected in the 10 commandments, Exodus 20:7. It is found in Exodus 3:15: "this is my Name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations."

Exodus 20:1 And Yahweh spoke all these words, saying,
2 I am Yahweh your Father, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 You will have no elohim besides Me.
4 You shall not make unto you a graven image, nor any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 You shall not bow down yourself unto them, nor serve them, for I Yahweh your Father am a jealous Father, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of them that hate me,
6 And showing lovingkindness unto thousands of them that love me and keep my mitzwah.
7 You shall not make the Name of Yahweh your Father vain; for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless that makes His Name vain.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shall you labor, and do all your work;
10 But the seventh day is a sabbath unto Yahweh your Father: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your manservant, nor your maid-servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates:
11 For in six days Yahweh made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yahweh blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12 Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which Yahweh your Father gives you.
13 You shall not murder.
14 You shall not commit adultery.
15 You shall not steal.
16 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17 You shall not covet your neighbor's house, you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is your neighbor's.


Those are the Ten Commandments. The Laws of Yahweh are mostly given in the first five books of the scriptures, so they are called "the Torah" (the Hebrew word 'torah' is 'law' in English). Although they are being given to the Israelites, the majority of these laws are for all people. Yahweh has always been giving His Laws to all people - including Adam and Eve. For example, do you think it is okay to violate Yahweh's sabbath just because you are a christian, not a Jew? Do you think it is okay to have idols just because you are not a Jew? Some would say that the law was not given till Moshe, but Yahweh has been giving out His Laws from the beginning. Genesis 4:7 says sin (and therefore Law) already existed.

Genesis 26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments (mitzwah), my statutes, and my laws (torah).

Many christians say all they have to obey are the "Seven Laws of Noah". These do not even include the sabbath, which was given to all people for all time. And it certainly sounds like Abraham obeyed a lot more than seven laws.

In the old days everyone had to sacrifice animals to defer their debt of life for being a sinner. But animals are not worth as much as humans, so the debt could not be paid in full. Besides, when YOU sin, the punishment is YOUR death. Eventually, Yahushua ben Yosef - the perfect human - paid that debt forever for all humans who believe in Him. And so we do not have to sacrifice animals anymore. Now we have to accept Yahushua as our Messiyah, the only person in history perfect enough to pay our penalty for us all. Now we are required to pray to Yahweh in the Name of Yahushua. So I will leave out the laws pertaining to sacrifices and offerings - I am only worried about those laws which I have to obey. I will also leave out the laws pertaining specifically to the priests, and the temple.

The first chapters of Leviticus describe how to make offerings and sacrifices. Throughout this book there are laws pertaining to sacrifices, and priests, and such as I did not put on this page. So it is a good idea for everyone to read the whole book. Actually, it is a good idea for everyone to read the entire scriptures, starting on page one of Genesis and going till the end of the Revelation!

Genesis 1:29 And Yahweh said, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food:

Genesis 9:3 Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; As the green herb have I given you all.
4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall you not eat.
5 And surely your blood, the blood of your lives, will I require; At the hand of every beast will I require it. And at the hand of man, even at the hand of every man's brother, will I require the life of man.
6 Whoso sheds man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: For in the image of Yahweh made He man.

Genesis 18:10 This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between Me and you and your seed after you: every male among you shall be circumcised.
11 And you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of a covenant between Me and you.
12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every male throughout your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any foreigner that is not of your seed.
13 He that is born in your house, and he that is bought with your money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
14 And the uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.

Genesis 26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments (mitzwah), my statutes, and my laws (torah).

Exodus 12:43 - 48 Sojourners, servants, and foreigners are to NOT eat the passover. They are to NOT break any bones of the lamb.

Exodus 21:2 If you buy a Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
3 If he come in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he be married, then his wife shall go out with him.
4 If his master give him a wife and she bear him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.
5 But if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free:
6 then his master shall bring him unto Yahweh, and shall bring him to the door, or unto the door-post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him for ever.
7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maid-servant, she shall not go out as the men-servants do.
8 If she please not her master, who has espoused her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a foreign people he shall have no power, seeing he has dealt deceitfully with her.
9 And if he espouse her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.
10 If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish.
11 And if he do not these three things unto her, then shall she go out for nothing, without money.
12 He that smites a man, so that he dies, shall surely be put to death.
13 And if a man lie not in wait, but Yahweh deliver him into his hand; then I will appoint you a place where he shall flee.
14 And if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbor, to slay him with guile; you shall take him from my altar, that he may die.
15 And he that smites his father, or his mother, shall be surely put to death.
16 And he that steals a man, and sells him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
17 And he that curses his father or his mother, shall surely be put to death.
18 And if men contend, and one smite the other with a stone, or with his fist, and he die not, but keep his bed;
19 if he rise again, and walk abroad upon his staff, then shall he that smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.
20 And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall surely be punished.
21 Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money.
22 And if men strive together, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart, and yet no harm follow; he shall be surely fined, according as the woman's husband shall lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
23 But if any harm follow, then you shall give life for life,
24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
25 burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
26 And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid, and destroy it; he shall let him go free for his eye's sake.
27 And if he smite out his man-servant's tooth, or his maid-servant's tooth, he shall let him go free for his tooth's sake.
28 And if an ox gore a man or a woman to death, the ox shall be surely stoned, and its flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of the ox shall be quit.
29 But if the ox was wont to gore in time past, and it has been testified to its owner, and he has not kept it in, but it has killed a man or a woman, the ox shall be stoned, and its owner also shall be put to death.
30 If there be laid on him a ransom, then he shall give for the redemption of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.
31 Whether it have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according to this judgment shall it be done unto him.
32 If the ox gore a man-servant or a maid-servant, there shall be given unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.
33 And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein,
34 the owner of the pit shall make it good; he shall give money unto the owner thereof, and the dead beast shall be his.
35 And if one man's ox hurt another's, so that it dies, then they shall sell the live ox, and divide the price of it: and the dead also they shall divide.
36 Or if it be known that the ox was wont to gore in time past, and its owner has not kept it in, he shall surely pay ox for ox, and the dead beast shall be his own.

Exodus 22:1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall pay five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.
2 If the thief be found breaking in, and be smitten so that he dies, there shall be no bloodguiltiness for him.
3 If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be bloodguiltiness for him; he shall make restitution: if he have nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.
4 If the theft be found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or ass, or sheep, he shall pay double.
5 If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall let his beast loose, and it feed in another man's field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make restitution.
6 If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the shocks of grain, or the standing grain, or the field are consumed; he that kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.
7 If a man shall deliver unto his neighbor money or stuff to keep, and it be stolen out of the man's house; if the thief be found, he shall pay double.
8 If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall come near unto Yahweh, to see whether he have not put his hand unto his neighbor's goods.
9 For every matter of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, whereof one says, This is it, the cause of both parties shall come before Yahweh; he whom Yahweh shall condemn shall pay double unto his neighbor.
10 If a man deliver unto his neighbor an ass, or an ox, or a sheep, or any beast, to keep; and it die, or be hurt, or driven away, no man seeing it:
11 the oath of Yahweh shall be between them both, whether he has not put his hand unto his neighbor's goods; and the owner thereof shall accept it, and he shall not make restitution.
12 But if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the owner thereof.
13 If it be torn in pieces, let him bring it for witness: he shall not make good that which was torn.
14 And if a man borrow aught of his neighbor, and it be hurt, or die, the owner thereof not being with it, he shall surely make restitution.
15 If the owner thereof be with it, he shall not make it good: if it be a hired thing, it came for its hire.
16 And if a man entice a virgin that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely pay a dowry for her to be his wife.
17 If her father utterly refuse to give her unto him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins.
18 You shall not suffer a sorceress to live.
19 Whosoever lies with a beast shall surely be put to death.
20 He that sacrifices unto any elohim, save unto Yahweh only, shall be utterly destroyed.
21 And a sojourner shall you not wrong, neither shall you oppress him: for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.
22 You shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.
23 If you afflict them at all, and they cry at all unto Me, I will surely hear their cry;
24 and my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.
25 If you lend money to any of my people with you that is poor, you shall not be to him as a creditor; neither shall you lay upon him interest.
26 If you at all take your neighbor's garment to pledge, you shall restore it unto him before the sun goes down:
27 for that is his only covering, it is his garment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? And it shall come to pass, when he cries unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.
28 You shall not revile Yahweh, nor curse a ruler of your people.
29 You shall not delay to offer of your harvest, and of the outflow of your presses. The first-born of your sons shall you give unto Me.
30 Likewise shall you do with your oxen, and with your sheep: seven days it shall be with its dam; on the eighth day you shall give it me.
31 And you shall be holy men unto me: therefore you shall not eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; you shall cast it to the dogs.

Exodus 23:1 You shall not take up a false report: put not your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
2 You shall not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shall you speak in a cause to turn aside after a multitude to wrest justice:
3 neither shall you favor a poor man in his cause.
4 If you meet your enemy's ox or his ass going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again.
5 If you see the ass of him that hates you lying under his burden, you shall forbear to leave him, you shall surely release it with him.
6 You shall not wrest the justice due to your poor in his cause.
7 Keep you far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay you not: for I will not justify the wicked.
8 And you shall take no bribe: for a bribe blinds them that have sight, and perverts the words of the righteous.
9 And a sojourner shall you not oppress: for you know the heart of a sojourner, seeing you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.
10 And six years you shall sow your land, and shall gather in the increase thereof:
11 but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow; that the poor of your people may eat: and what they leave the beast of the field shall eat. In like manner you shall deal with your vineyard, and with your oliveyard.
12 Six days you shall do your work, and on the seventh day you shall rest; that your ox and your ass may have rest, and the son of your handmaid, and the sojourner, may be refreshed.
13 And in all things that I have said unto you take you heed: and make no mention of the name of elohim, neither let it be heard out of your mouth.
14 Three times you shall keep a feast unto me in the year.
15 The feast of unleavened bread shall you keep: seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month Abib (for in it you came out from Egypt); and none shall appear before Me empty:
16 and the feast of harvest, the first-fruits of your labors, which you sow in the field: and the feast of ingathering, at the end of the year, when you gather in your labors out of the field.
17 Three times in the year all your males shall appear before the Father Yahweh.
18 You shall not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened bread; neither shall the fat of my feast remain all night until the morning.
19 The first of the first-fruits of your ground you shall bring into the house of Yahweh your Father. You shall not boil a kid in it's mother's milk.
24 You shall not bow down to their elohim, nor serve them, nor do after their works; but you shall utterly overthrow them, and break in pieces their pillars.
25 And you shall serve Yahweh your Father, and He will bless your bread, and your water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of you.

Exodus 31:12 And Yahweh spoke unto Moses, saying,
13 Speak you also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily you shall keep my sabbaths: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that you may know that I am Yahweh who sanctifies you.
14 You shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: every one that profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whosoever does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
15 Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day is a sabbath of solemn rest, holy to Yahweh: whosoever does any work on the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
17 It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days Yahweh made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He rested, and was refreshed.

Exodus 34:14 for you shall worship no elohim: for Yahweh, whose Name is Jealous, is a jealous Father:
17 You shall make you no molten elohim.
18 The feast of unleavened bread shall you keep. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month Abib; for in the month Abib you came out from Egypt.
19 All that opens the womb is mine; and all your cattle that is male, the firstlings of cow and sheep.
20 And the firstling of an ass you shall redeem with a lamb: and if you will not redeem it, then you shall break its neck. All the first-born of your sons you shall redeem. And none shall appear before Me empty.
21 Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest: in plowing time and in harvest you shall rest.
22 And you shall observe the feast of weeks, even of the first-fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end.
23 Three times in the year shall all your males appear before the Father Yahweh, the Father of Israel.

Exodus 35:2 Six days shall work be done; but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a sabbath of solemn rest to Yahweh: whosoever does any work therein shall be put to death.
3 You shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the sabbath day.

Leviticus 6:1 And Yahweh spoke unto Moses, saying,
2 If any one sin, and commit a trespass against Yahweh, and deal falsely with his neighbor in a matter of deposit, or of bargain, or of robbery, or have oppressed his neighbor,
3 or have found that which was lost, and deal falsely therein, and swear to a lie; in any of all these things that a man does, sinning therein;
4 then it shall be, if he has sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took by robbery, or the thing which he has gotten by oppression, or the deposit which was committed to him, or the lost thing which he found,
5 or any thing about which he has sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in full, and shall add the fifth part more thereto: unto him to whom it appertains shall he give it, in the day of his being found guilty.

Leviticus 7:23 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, you shall eat no fat, of ox, or sheep, or goat.
24 And the fat of that which dies of itself, and the fat of that which is torn of beasts, may be used for any other service; but you shall in no way eat of it.
25 For whosoever eats the fat of the beast, of which men offer an offering made by fire unto Yahweh, even the soul that eats it shall be cut off from his people.
26 And you shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of bird or of beast, in any of your dwellings.
27 Whosoever it be that eats any blood, that soul shall be cut off from his people.

Leviticus 11:1 And Yahweh spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the living things which you may eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.
3 Whatsoever parts the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and chews the cud, among the beasts, that may you eat.
4 Nevertheless these shall you not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that part the hoof: the camel, because he chews the cud but parts not the hoof, he is unclean unto you.
5 And the coney, because he chews the cud but parts not the hoof, he is unclean unto you.
6 And the hare, because she chews the cud but parts not the hoof, she is unclean unto you.
7 And the swine, because he parts the hoof, and is clovenfooted, but chews not the cud, he is unclean unto you.
8 Of their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch; they are unclean unto you.
9 These may you eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, that may you eat.
10 And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of all the living creatures that are in the waters, they are an abomination unto you,
11 and they shall be an abomination unto you; you shall not eat of their flesh, and their carcasses you shall have in abomination.
12 Whatsoever has no fins nor scales in the waters, that is an abomination unto you.
13 And these you shall have in abomination among the birds; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the gier-eagle, and the osprey,
14 and the kite, and the falcon after its kind,
15 every raven after its kind,
16 and the ostrich, and the night-hawk, and the seamew, and the hawk after its kind,
17 and the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,
18 and the horned owl, and the pelican, and the vulture,
19 and the stork, the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat.
20 All winged creeping things that go upon all fours are an abomination unto you.
21 Yet these may you eat of all winged creeping things that go upon all fours, which have legs above their feet, wherewith to leap upon the earth.
22 Even these of them you may eat: the locust after its kind, and the bald locust after its kind, and the cricket after its kind, and the grasshopper after its kind.
23 But all winged creeping things, which have four feet, are an abomination unto you.
26 Every beast which parts the hoof, and is not clovenfooted, nor chews the cud, is unclean unto you: every one that touches them shall be unclean.
27 And whatsoever goes upon its paws, among all beasts that go on all fours, they are unclean unto you:
29 And these are they which are unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth: the weasel, and the mouse, and the great lizard after its kind,
30 and the gecko, and the land-crocodile, and the lizard, and the sand-lizard, and the chameleon.
41 And every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth is an abomination; it shall not be eaten.
42 Whatsoever goes upon the belly, and whatsoever goes upon all fours, or whatsoever has many feet, even all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them you shall not eat; for they are an abomination.

Leviticus 12:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman conceive seed, and bear a man-child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of the impurity of her sickness shall she be unclean.
3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.
4 And she shall continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled.
5 But if she bear a maid-child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her impurity; and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.

Leviticus 13 through 15 speaks of leprosy and the plague and disease.

Leviticus 16:29 And it shall be a statute forever unto you: in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and shall do no manner of work, the home-born, or the stranger that sojourns among you:
30 for on this day shall atonement be made for you, to cleanse you; from all your sins shall you be clean before Yahweh.
31 It is a sabbath of solemn rest unto you, and you shall afflict your souls; it is a statute forever.
32 And the priest, who shall be anointed and who shall be consecrated to be priest in his father's stead, shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen garments, even the holy garments:
33 and he shall make atonement for the holy sanctuary; and he shall make atonement for the tent of meeting and for the altar; and he shall make atonement for the priests and for all the people of the assembly.
34 And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make atonement for the children of Israel because of all their sins once in the year.

Leviticus 17:10 And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, that eats any manner of blood, I will set my face against that soul that eats blood, and will cut him off from among his people.
13 And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among them, who takes in hunting any beast or bird that may be eaten; he shall pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust.

Leviticus 18 :1 And Yahweh spoke unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am Yahweh your Father.
3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein you dwelt, shall you not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, where I bring you, shall you not do; neither shall you walk in their statutes.
4 Mine ordinances shall you do, and my statutes shall you keep, to walk therein: I am Yahweh your Father.
5 You shall therefore keep my statutes, and my ordinances; which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am Yahweh.
6 None of you shall approach to any that are near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am Yahweh.
7 The nakedness of your father, even the nakedness of your mother, shall you not uncover: she is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness.
8 The nakedness of your father's wife shall you not uncover: it is your father's nakedness.
9 The nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness you shall not uncover.
10 The nakedness of your son's daughter, or of your daughter's daughter, even their nakedness you shall not uncover: for theirs is your own nakedness.
11 The nakedness of your father's wife's daughter, begotten of your father, she is your sister, you shall not uncover her nakedness.
12 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's sister: she is your father's near kinswoman.
13 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother's sister: for she is your mother's near kinswoman.
14 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's brother, you shall not approach to his wife: she is your aunt.
15 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter-in-law: she is your son's wife; you shall not uncover her nakedness.
16 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother's wife: it is your brother's nakedness.
17 You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter; you shall not take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; they are near kinswomen: it is wickedness.
18 And you shall not take a wife to her sister, to be a rival to her, to uncover her nakedness, besides the other in her life-time.

35 You shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in measures of length, of weight, or of quantity.

4 And if the people at the land do at all hide their eyes from that man, when he gives of his seed unto Molech, and not put him to death;
6 And the soul that turns unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto the wizards, to play the harlot after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

12 And in the day when you wave the sheaf, you shall offer a he-lamb without blemish a year old for a burnt-offering unto Yahweh.
13 And the meal-offering thereof shall be two tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto Yahweh for a sweet savor; and the drink-offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin.
14 And you shall eat neither bread, nor parched grain, nor fresh ears, until this selfsame day, until you have brought the oblation of your Father: it is a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

16 even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall you number fifty days; and you shall offer a new meal-offering unto Yahweh.

18 And you shall present with the bread seven lambs without blemish a year old, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be a burnt-offering unto Yahweh, with their meal-offering, and their drink-offerings, even an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yahweh.
19 And you shall offer one he-goat for a sin-offering, and two he-lambs a year old for a sacrifice of peace-offerings.
20 And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first-fruits for a wave-offering before Yahweh, with the two lambs: they shall be holy to Yahweh for the priest.

37 These are the set feasts of Yahweh, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations,
39 Howbeit on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruits of the land, you shall keep the feast of Yahweh seven days: on the first day shall be a solemn rest, and on the eighth day shall be a solemn rest.

Leviticus 24:15 And you shall speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Whosoever curses his father shall bear his sin.

17 And he that smites any man mortally shall surely be put to death.
18 And he that smites a beast mortally shall make it good, life for life.

20 breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; as he has caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be rendered unto him.
21 And he that kills a beast shall make it good: and he that kills a man shall be put to death.
22 You shall have one manner of law, as well for the sojourner, as for the home-born: for I am Yahweh your Father.

Deuteronomy 4:40 And you shall keep His statutes, and His mitzwah, which I command you this day,

Deuteronomy 5:6 I am Yahweh your Father,
7 You shall have no elohim before me.
8 You shall not make unto you a graven image, nor any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
9 You shall not bow down yourself unto them, nor serve them;
11 You shall not take the Name of Yahweh your Father in vain: for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless that takes His Name in vain.
12 Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy, as Yahweh your Father commanded you.
13 Six days shall you labor, and do all your work;
14 but the seventh day is a sabbath unto Yahweh your Father: in it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your man-servant, nor your maid-servant, nor your ox, nor your ass, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger that is within your gates; that your man-servant and your maid-servant may rest as well as you.

13 you shall fear Yahweh your Father; and Him shall you serve, and shall swear by His Name.
14 You shall not go after elohim, of the elohim of the peoples that are round about you;
16 You shall not tempt Yahweh your Father,
17 You shall diligently keep the mitzwah of Yahweh your Father, and His testimonies, and His statutes, which He has commanded you.
18 And you shall do that which is right and good in the sight of Yahweh;

Deuteronomy 8:6 And you shall keep the mitzwah of Yahweh your Father, to walk in His ways, and to fear Him.
11 Beware lest you forget Yahweh your Father, in not keeping His mitzwah, and His ordinances, and His statutes,
18 But you shall remember Yahweh your Father,

Deuteronomy 10:12 And now, Israel, what does Yahweh your Father require of you, but to fear Yahweh your Father, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve Yahweh your Father with all your heart and with all your soul,
13 to keep the mitzwah of Yahweh, and His statutes, which I command you this day for your good?
19 Love you therefore the sojourner; for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.
20 You shall fear Yahweh your Father; Him shall you serve; and to Him shall you cleave, and by His Name shall you swear.

Deuteronomy 11:1 Therefore you shall love Yahweh your Father, and keep His charge, and His statutes, and His ordinances, and His mitzwah, always.
16 Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside, and serve hinder elohim, and worship them;

Deuteronomy 12:16 Only you shall not eat the blood; you shall pour it out upon the earth as water.
21 If the place which Yahweh your Father shall choose, to put His Name there, be too far from you, then you shall kill of your herd and of your flock, which Yahweh has given you, as I have commanded you; and you may eat within your gates,

24 You shall not eat it; you shall pour it out upon the earth as water.
32 What thing soever I command you, that shall you observe to do: you shall not add thereto, nor diminish from it.

Deuteronomy 13:4 You shall walk after Yahweh your Father, and fear Him, and keep His mitzwah, and obey His voice, and you shall serve Him, and cleave unto Him.
6 If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend, that is as your own soul, entice you secretly, saying, Let us go and serve hinder elohim, which you have not known, you, nor your fathers;
7 of the elohim of the peoples that are round about you, near unto you, or far off from you, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth;
8 you shall not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall your eye pity him, neither shall you spare, neither shall you conceal him:
9 but you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.
10 And you shall stone him to death with stones, because he has sought to draw you away from Yahweh your Father,

Deuteronomy 14:1 You are the children of Yahweh your Father: you shall not cut yourselves, nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead.

4 These are the beasts which you may eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat,
5 the hart, and the gazelle, and the roebuck, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the antelope, and the chamois.
6 And every beast that parts the hoof, and has the hoof cloven in two, and chews the cud, among the beasts, that may you eat.
7 Nevertheless these you shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that have the hoof cloven: the camel, and the hare, and the coney; because they chew the cud but part not the hoof, they are unclean unto you.
8 And the swine, because he parts the hoof but chews not the cud, he is unclean unto you: of their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch.
9 These you may eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever has fins and scales may you eat;
10 and whatsoever has not fins and scales you shall not eat; it is unclean unto you.
11 Of all clean birds you may eat.
12 But these are they of which you shall not eat: the eagle, and the giereagle, and the osprey,

14 and every raven after its kind,
15 and the ostrich, and the night-hawk, and the sea-mew, and the hawk after its kind,

19 And all winged creeping things are unclean unto you: they shall not be eaten.
20 Of all clean birds you may eat.
21 You shall not eat of anything that dies of itself: you may give it unto the sojourner that is within your gates, that he may eat it; or you may sell it unto a foreigner: for you are a holy people unto Yahweh your Father. You shall not boil a kid in its mother's milk.
22 You shall surely tithe all the increase of your seed, that which comes forth from the field year by year.

Deuteronomy 16:1 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover unto Yahweh your Father; for in the month of Abib Yahweh your Father brought you forth out of Egypt by night.
2 And you shall sacrifice the passover unto Yahweh your Father, of the flock and the herd, in the place which Yahweh shall choose, to cause His Name to dwell there.
3 You shall eat no leavened bread with it; seven days you shall eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for you came forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that you may remember the day when you came forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life.
4 And there shall be no leaven seen with you in all your borders seven days; neither shall any of the flesh, which you sacrifice the first day at even, remain all night until the morning.
5 You may not sacrifice the passover within any of your gates, which Yahweh your Father gives you;
6 but at the place which Yahweh your Father shall choose, to cause His Name to dwell in, there you shall sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that you came forth out of Egypt.
7 And you shall roast and eat it in the place which Yahweh your Father shall choose: and you shall turn in the morning, and go unto your tents.
8 Six days you shall eat unleavened bread; and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to Yahweh your Father; you shall do no work therein.
9 Seven weeks shall you number unto you: from the time you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain shall you begin to number seven weeks.
10 And you shall keep the feast of weeks unto Yahweh your Father with a tribute of a freewill-offering of your hand, which you shall give, according as Yahweh your Father blesses you:
11 and you shall rejoice before Yahweh your Father, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your man-servant, and your maid-servant, and the Levite that is within your gates, and the sojourner, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are in the midst of you, in the place which Yahweh your Father shall choose, to cause His Name to dwell there.
12 And you shall remember that you were a bondman in Egypt: and you shall observe and do these statutes.
13 You shall keep the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that you have gathered in from your threshing-floor and from your winepress:

15 Seven days shall you keep a feast unto Yahweh your Father in the place which Yahweh shall choose; because Yahweh your Father will bless you in all your increase, and in all the work of your hands, and you shall be altogether joyful.
16 Three times in a year shall all your males appear before Yahweh your Father 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 Yahweh empty:
17 every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of Yahweh your Father which He has given you.
18 Judges and officers shall you make you in all your gates, which Yahweh your Father gives you, according to your tribes; and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment.
19 You shall not wrest justice: you shall not respect persons; neither shall you take a bribe; for a bribe does blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.
20 That which is altogether just shall you follow, that you may live,
21 You shall not plant you an Asherah of any kind of tree beside the altar of Yahweh your Father, which you shall make you.
22 Neither shall you set you up a pillar; which Yahweh your Father hates.

Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found with you any one that makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, one that uses divination, one that practises augury, or an enchanter, or a sorcerer,
11 or a charmer, or a consulter with a familiar spirit, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For whosoever does these things is an abomination unto Yahweh: and because of these abominations Yahweh your Father does drive them out from before you.
13 You shall be perfect with Yahweh your Father.
20 But the prophet, that shall speak a word presumptuously in my Name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of hinder elohim, that same prophet shall die.

Deuteronomy 19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sins: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall a matter be established.
21 And your eyes shall not pity; life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

Deuteronomy 22:1 You shall not see your brother's ox or his sheep go astray, and hide yourself from them: you shall surely bring them again unto your brother.
2 And if your brother be not near unto you, or if you know him not, then you shall bring it home to your house, and it shall be with you until your brother seek after it, and you shall restore it to him.
3 And so shall you do with his ass; and so shall you do with his garment; and so shall you do with every lost thing of your brother's, which he has lost, and you have found: you may not hide yourself.
4 You shall not see your brother's ass or his ox fallen down by the way, and hide yourself from them: you shall surely help him to lift them up again.
5 A woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment; for whosoever does these things is an abomination unto Yahweh your Father.
6 If a bird's nest chance to be before you in the way, in any tree or on the ground, with young ones or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young, or upon the eggs, you shall not take the dam with the young:
7 you shall surely let the dam go, but the young you may take unto yourself; that it may be well with you, and that you may prolong your days.
8 When you build a new house, then you shall make a battlement for your roof, that you bring not blood upon your house, if any man fall from there.
9 You shall not sow your vineyard with two kinds of seed, lest the whole fruit be forfeited, the seed which you have sown, and the increase of the vineyard.
10 You shall not plow with an ox and an ass together.
11 You shall not wear a mingled stuff, wool and linen together.
12 You shall make you fringes upon the four borders of your vesture, wherewith you cover yourself.
13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her,
14 and lay shameful things to her charge, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came nigh to her, I found not in her the tokens of virginity;
15 then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate;
16 and the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hates her;
17 and, lo, he has laid shameful things to her charge, saying, I found not in your daughter the tokens of virginity; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the garment before the elders of the city.
18 And the elders of that city shall take the man and chastise him;
19 and they shall fine him a hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he has brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.
20 But if this thing be true, that the tokens of virginity were not found in the damsel;
21 then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has wrought folly in Israel, to play the harlot in her father's house: so shall you put away the evil from the midst of you.
22 If a man be found lying with a woman married to a husband, then they shall both of them die, the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shall you put away the evil from Israel.
23 If there be a damsel that is a virgin betrothed unto a husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;
24 then you shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and you shall stone them to death with stones; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he has humbled his neighbor's wife: so you shall put away the evil from the midst of you.
25 But if the man find the damsel that is betrothed in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her; then the man only that lay with her shall die:
26 but unto the damsel you shall do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man rises against his neighbor, and slays him, even so is this matter;
27 for he found her in the field, the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her.
28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, that is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;
29 then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife, because he has humbled her; he may not put her away all his days.
30 A man shall not take his father's wife, and shall not uncover his father's skirt.

Deuteronomy 24:1 When a man takes a wife, and marries her, then it shall be, if she find no favor in his eyes, because he has found some unseemly thing in her, that he shall write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.
2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.
3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, who took her to be his wife;
4 her former husband, who sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before Yahweh:
14 You shall not oppress a hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he be of your brethren, or of your sojourners that are in your land within your gates:
15 in his day you shall give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and sets his heart upon it: lest he cry against you unto Yahweh, and it be sin unto you.
16 The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
17 You shall not wrest the justice due to the sojourner, or to the fatherless, nor take the widow's raiment to pledge;
19 When you reap your harvest in your field, and have forgot a sheaf in the field, you shall not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the sojourner, for the fatherless, and for the widow; that Yahweh your Father may bless you in all the work of your hands.
20 When you beat your olive-tree, you shall not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the sojourner, for the fatherless, and for the widow.
21 When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not glean it after you: it shall be for the sojourner, for the fatherless, and for the widow.

Deuteronomy 25:4 You shall not muzzle the ox when he treads out the grain.
11 When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draws near to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smites him, and puts forth her hand, and takes him by the secrets;
12 then you shall cut off her hand, your eye shall have no pity.
13 You shall not have in your bag diverse weights, a great and a small.
14 You shall not have in your house diverse measures, a great and a small.
15 A perfect and just weight shall you have; a perfect and just measure shall you have: that your days may be long in the land which Yahweh your Father gives you.
16 For all that do such things, even all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto Yahweh your Father.

Deuteronomy 26:16 This day Yahweh your Father commands you to do these statutes and ordinances: you shall therefore keep and do them with all your heart, and with all your soul.

Deuteronomy 27:15 Cursed be the man that makes a graven or molten image, an abomination unto Yahweh, the work of the hands of the craftsman,
16 Cursed be he that sets light by his father or his mother.
17 Cursed be he that removes his neighbor's landmark.
18 Cursed be he that makes the blind to wander out of the way.
19 Cursed be he that wrests the justice due to the sojourner, fatherless, and widow.
20 Cursed be he that lies with his father's wife, because he has uncovered his father's skirt.
21 Cursed be he that lies with any manner of beast
22 Cursed be he that lies with his sister, the daughter of his father, or the daughter of his mother. 
23 Cursed be he that lies with his mother-in-law.
24 Cursed be he that smites his neighbor in secret.
25 Cursed be he that takes a bribe to slay an innocent person.
26 Cursed be he that confirms not the words of this torah to do them

Yahushua [Joshua] 1:7 Only be strong and very courageous, to observe to do according to all the torah, which Moses my servant commanded you: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, 8 This book of the torah shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate thereon day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written therein:

Yahushua 23:6 Therefore be you very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the torah of Moses, that you turn not aside there from to the right hand or to the left;
7 that you come not among these nations, these that remain among you; neither make mention of the name of their elohim, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow down yourselves unto them;
8 but cleave unto Yahweh your Father, as you have done unto this day.
16 When you transgress the covenant of Yahweh your Father, which He commanded you, and go and serve hinder elohim, and bow down yourselves to them; then will the anger of Yahweh be kindled against you, and you shall perish quickly from off the good land which He has given unto you. 

Yahsua 24:14 Now therefore fear Yahweh, and serve Him in sincerity and in truth; and put away the elohim which your fathers served beyond the River, and in Egypt; and serve you Yahweh.

Psalms 78:4 We will not hide them from their children, telling to the generation to come the praises of Yahweh, and His strength, and His wondrous works that He has done.
5 For He established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a torah in Israel, which He commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children;
6 That the generation to come might know them, even the children that should be born; who should arise and tell them to their children,
7 That they might set their hope in Yahweh, and not forget the works of Yahweh, but keep His mitzwah,

Anyone trying to learn the right way to live, should read the books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes:

Proverbs 3:27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, When it is in the power of your hand to do it.
28 Say not unto your neighbor, Go, and come again, And tomorrow I will give; When you have it by you.
29 Devise not evil against your neighbor, Seeing he dwells securely by you.
30 Strive not with a man without cause, If he have done you no harm.
31 Envy you not the man of violence, And choose none of his ways.

Proverbs 4:14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, And walk not in the way of evil men.
24 Put away from you a wayward mouth, And perverse lips put far from you.
27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: Remove your foot from evil.

Proverbs 6:16 There are six things which Yahweh hates; Yea, seven which are an abomination unto him:
17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood;
18 A heart that devises wicked purposes, Feet that are swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that utters lies, And he that sows discord among brethren.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; And he that is wise wins souls.

Proverbs 20:22 Do not say, I will recompense evil: Wait for Yahweh, and He will save you.
23 Diverse weights are an abomination to Yahweh; And a false balance is not good.

Proverbs 21:2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; but Yahweh weighs the hearts.
3 To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to Yahweh than sacrifice.
4 A high look, and a proud heart, even the lamp of the wicked, is sin.

Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 23:9 Speak not in the hearing of a fool; For he will despise the wisdom of your words.
12 Apply your heart unto instruction, And your ears to the words of knowledge.
13 Withhold not correction from the child; For if you beat him with the rod, he will not die.
14 You shall beat him with the rod, And shall deliver his soul from Sheol.
17 Let not your heart envy sinners; But be you in the fear of Yahweh all the day long:

Proverbs 24:28 Be not a witness against your neighbor without cause; And deceive not with your lips.
29 Say not, I will do so to him as he has done to me; I will render to the man according to his work.

Proverbs 25:21 If your enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:
22 For you will heap coals of fire upon his head, And Yahweh will reward you.
23 The north wind brings forth rain: So does a backbiting tongue an angry countenance.
24 It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, Than with a contentious woman in a wide house.

Proverbs 27:1 Boast not yourself of tomorrow; For you know not what a day may bring forth.
2 Let another man praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips.

Ecclesiastes 7:9 Be not hasty in your spirit to be angry; for anger rests in the bosom of fools.

YeshaYah 1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil;
17 Learn to do well; seek justice, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

Yeremyah 17:21 Thus says Yahweh, Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring it in by the gates of Jerusalem;
22 neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do you any work: but hallow you the sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers.

Yeremyah 22:3 Thus says Yahweh: Execute you justice and righteousness, and deliver him that is robbed out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence, to the sojourner, the fatherless, nor the widow; neither shed innocent blood in this place.

Zecharyah 7:9 Thus has Yahweh of hosts spoken, saying, Execute true judgment, and show kindness and compassion every man to his brother;
10 and oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the sojourner, nor the poor; and let none of you devise evil against his brother in your heart.

Zecharyah 8:16 These are the things that you shall do: speak you every man the truth with his neighbor; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates;
17 and let none of you devise evil in your hearts against his neighbor; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, says Yahweh.

Luke 6:27 But I say unto you that hear, Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you,
28 bless them that curse you, pray for them that despitefully use you.
29 To him that smites you on the one cheek offer also the other; and from him that takes away your cloak withhold not your coat also.
30 Give to every one that asks you; and of him that takes away your goods ask them not again.
31 And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise.
32 And if you love them that love you, what thank have you? For even sinners love those that love them.
33 And if you do good to them that do good to you, what thank have you? For even sinners do the same.
34 And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thank have you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to receive again as much.
35 But love your enemies, and do them good, and lend, never despairing; and your reward shall be great, and you shall be sons of the Most High: for He is kind toward the unthankful and evil.
36 Be you merciful, even as your Father is merciful.
37 And judge not, and you shall not be judged: and condemn not, and you shall not be condemned: release, and you shall be released:
38 give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, shall they give into your bosom. For with what measure you mete it shall be measured to you again.
41 And why behold you the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye?
42 Or how can you say to your brother, Brother, let me cast out the mote that is in your eye, when you yourself behold not the beam that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of your own eye, and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote that is in your brother's eye.
46 And why call you Me, Master, Master, and do not the things which I say?

Luke 14:11 For everyone that exalts himself shall be humbled; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.
12 And He said to him also that had bidden Him, When you make a dinner or a supper, call not your friends, nor your brethren, nor your kinsmen, nor rich neighbors; lest haply they also bid you again, and a recompense be made you.
13 But when you make a feast, bid the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
14 and you shall be blessed; because they have not wherewith to recompense you: for you shall be recompensed in the resurrection of the just.

Luke 16:16 The law and the prophets were until Yahchanan: from that time the evangel of the kingdom of Yahweh is preached, and every man enters violently into it.
17 But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than for one tittle of the law to fall.
18 Every one that puts away his wife, and marries another, commits adultery: and he that marries one that is put away from a husband commits adultery.

Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: if your brother sin, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
4 And if he sin against you seven times in the day, and seven times turn again to you, saying, I repent; you shall forgive him.

Luke 18:20 You know the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.
21 And he said, All these things have I observed from my youth up.
22 And when Yahushua heard it, He said unto him, One thing you lack yet: sell all that you have, and distribute unto the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven: and come, follow Me.

Yahchanan 3:3 Yahushua answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except one be born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of Yahweh.
5 Yahushua answered, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except one be born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of Yahweh!
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Yahchanan 5:14 Behold, you are made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing befall you.

Yahchanan 8:3 And the scribes and the Pharisees bring a woman taken in adultery; and having set her in the midst,
4 they say unto Him, Teacher, this woman has been taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now in the law Moshe commanded us to stone such: what then say you of her?
7 He lifted up Himself, and said unto them, he that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Yahchanan 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

Acts 15:20 but that we write unto them, that they abstain from the pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from what is strangled, and from blood.

Romans 12:9 Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
10 In love of the brethren be tenderly affectioned one to another; in honor preferring one another;
11 in diligence not slothful; fervent in spirit; serving Yahweh;
12 rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing stedfastly in prayer;
13 communicating to the necessities of the saints; given to hospitality.
14 Bless them that persecute you; bless, and curse not.
15 Rejoice with them that rejoice; weep with them that weep.
16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Set not your mind on high things, but condescend to things that are lowly. Be not wise in your own conceits.
17 Render to no man evil for evil. Take thought for things honorable in the sight of all men.
18 If it be possible, as much as in you lies, be at peace with all men.
19 Avenge not yourselves, beloved, but give place unto the wrath of Yahweh: for it is written, Vengeance belongs unto me; I will recompense, says Yahweh.
20 But if your enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him to drink: for in so doing you shall heap coals of fire upon his head.
21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Romans 13:8 Owe no man anything, save to love one another: for he that loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.
9 For this, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not murder, you shall not steal, you shall not covet, and if there be any other commandment, it is summed up in this word, namely, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.
10 Love works no ill to his neighbor: love therefore is the fulfilment of the law.

Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever you do, in word or in deed, do all in the Name of the Master Yahushua, giving thanks to Yahweh the Father through Him.
18 Wives, be in subjection to your husbands, as is fitting in Yahweh.
19 Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.
20 Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing in Yahweh.
21 Fathers, provoke not your children, that they be not discouraged.
22 Servants, obey in all things them that are your masters according to the flesh; not with eye-service, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing Yahweh:
23 whatsoever you do, work heartily, as unto Yahweh, and not unto men;

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousies, wraths, factions, divisions, parties,
21 envyings, drunkenness, revellings, and such like; of which I forewarn you, even as I did forewarn you, that they who practise such things shall not inherit the kingdom of Yahweh.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23 meekness, self-control; against such there is no law.

James 1:20-23 But be you doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

James 2:2 For if there come into your synagogue a man with a gold ring, in fine clothing, and there come in also a poor man in vile clothing;
3 and you have regard to him that wears the fine clothing, and say, Sit you here in a good place; and you say to the poor man, Stand you there, or sit under my footstool;
4 Do you not make distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts?
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren; did not Yahweh choose them that are poor as to the world to be rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to them that love Him?
6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Do not the rich oppress you, and themselves drag you before the judgment-seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme the honorable Name by which you are called?
8 Howbeit if you fulfil the royal law, according to the scripture, you shall love your neighbor as yourself, you do well:
9 but if you have respect of persons, you commit sin, being convicted by the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is become guilty of all.
11 For He that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if you do not commit adultery, but kill, you are become a transgressor of the law.
12 So speak you, and so do, as men that are to be judged by a law of liberty.
13 For judgment is without mercy to him that has showed no mercy: mercy glories against judgment.

1Peter 2:17 Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear Yahweh.

1Yahchanan 4:21 And this commandment have we from Him, that he who loves Yahweh love his brother also.

1Yahchanan 5:2 Hereby we know that we love the children of Yahweh, when we love Yahweh and do His commandments.
3 For this is the love of Yahweh, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous.

1Yahchanan 3:23 And this is His commandment, that we should believe in the Name of His Son Yahushua Ha Mashiyach, and love one another, even as He gave us commandment.

1Yahchanan 5:21 My little children, guard yourselves from idols.

Revelation 14:7   Fear Yahweh, and give Him glory;
