You know, need to get bitten, the zombies can't climb or swim, they can't feel but can smell, hear, see and clearly taste you. They are about as fast as a quick walk, rarely seen running. they are normal strengh but in a horde they are crazy strong. That sort of thing.

It is an ordinary dusk of normal quiet and shadow. The
gray sky contains a soft glow from the recent sun, so that
trees and long blades of grass seem to shimmer in the
gathering night. There is a rasp of crickets, and the
rustle of leaves in an occasional whispering breeze.
Transitions are easy and gradual, with relaxed studies of
earth, grass and leafy branches on a high-mounded hill.
Revelation of cemetery markers does nothing to disrupt the
peacefulness of our established mood; when awareness comes,
it is almost as though we have known where we were all
along. We are in a typical rural cemetery, conceivably
adjacent to a small church ...
Although the presence of a church is felt rather than
confirmed. The stones range from small identifying slates
to monuments of careful design…an occasional Franciscan
Crucifix, or a carved image of a defending angel. Over a
hundred years of death indicated in stones syllabic with
their year and the status of the families they represent.
Over the other night sounds is added the gravel-rumble of a
slow-moving car. A wider shot reveals the car and the
mounded cemetery, as the car pulls into the gate and moves
down one of the cemetery roads, the car passes in extreme
foreground and moves away from the camera. In the breeze
of its passing, the dead leaves that clutter the little
road swirl and move.
2.
Beyond the distant trees, the last receding gray of dusk in
surrendering to the black. The car continues. When the car
stops, we feel the absence of its sounds…replaced by the
crickets and the subtle wind. Even as the car is still
rocking slightly form its stopping action, we cut to a shot
through the driver window at the occupants of the car. The
DRIVER is a young man in his mid-twenties, and his
PASSENGER is a young woman, his sister. The man is in
shirtsleeves with a loosened tie. His suit-coat is on the
clothing hook over the back seat. The girl is wearing a
simple but attractive summer suit, with the jacket removed
and folded on her lap. She is fussing with her purse,
while the man shuts off engine, lights, and leans back to
yawn and stretch his legs. The girl closes a potato chip
bag, brushes crumbs, fluffs her hair ... typical feminine
gestures after a long ride. The man stretches again.
BARBARA
They ought to make the day the
time changes the first day of
summer. Then two good things
would happen all at once.
A little laugh from the man as he straightens his tie.
BARBARA
I love the long days and the extra
sun.
JOHN
A lot of good the extra daylight
does me. i lost an hour’s sleep.
And it’s dark already, and we
still have a three-hour drive, and
we won’t get back till after
midnight.
Barbara reaches down to put her shoes on.
BARBARA
If it really dragged you that
much, you wouldn’t do it.
JOHN
Are you kidding? I certainly
don’t want to blow sunday on this
scene. We’re gonna either have to
move mother to Parkville or move
the grave to pittsburgh.
3.
BARBARA
Oh, you’re just being silly.
Mother can’t make a drive like
this.
John reaches to the back seat and produces a flowered,
cross-shaped grave ornament. In the center of the cross, in
gold script on a red field, is written “We Still Remember”
JOHN
Look, twenty-five dollars ... “We
Still Remember”... I don’t, you
know it ... I don’t remember what
the guy looks like.
BARBARA
Johnny ... it takes you five
minutes.
JOHN
Three hours... no, six hours ...
six hours and five minutes.
Barbara continues to primp and straighten her outfit. John
hands her the grave ornament and leans forward to struggle
into his suit jacket.
JOHN
Mother wants to remember. So we
have to drive four-hundred miles
to plant a cross on a grave, as if
he’s staring up through the ground
to check out the decorations ...
(he points at the cross
inscription)
... we have to remember ... and
she stays at home.
BARBARA
Johnny, we’re here ... all right?
She opens her door and turns to step out. John takes the
keys from the ignition and drops them into his pocket.
JOHN
Hey ... hey, Barb, you know the
radio’s been on all this time ...
(Tighter Shot of Radio)
4.
VOICE
Ladies and gentlemen ... please
forgive ... what ... hey, you got
a signal, Charlie? ...
JOHN
It must have been the station.
VOICE:
... do not be al ...
John clicks the radio off. He gets out of the car and
walks around the front of it, trotting to catch up with his
sister. It is obvious that she didn’t hear him. He
catches up to her and starts to repeat his discovery about
the radio.
JOHN
Hey, the radio is okay, it’s
just ...
Barbara is more interested in finding the row containing
their father’s grave.
BARBARA
You remember which row its in?
JOHN
(Momentarily forgetting the
radio)
Huh? Oh, it’s over here, I
think...
They start in his suggested direction.
JOHN
Did you hear the radio?
BARBARA
(Looking ahead, trying to
spot the grave)
Hmmm?
JOHN
The radio’s fixed. Must’ve been
the station, not the radio.
BARBARA
(Still searching intently,
she tosses this Line away)
Good ... you won’t be as bitchy
driving home.
5.
Their jibes at each other are not really in anger, but are
typical of brother-sister annoyance. They walk through the
row of gravestones in the growing darkness.
JOHN
(Making conversation, with no
more Significance than a
comment about the weather)
Nobody around.
BARBARA
Well, it is late. If you’d get up
a little earlier ...
JOHN
I already lost an hour’s sleep on
the time change.
BARBARA
Oh, sometimes I think you complain
just to hear yourself talk.
JOHN
An hour earlier and it’d still be
light. (He squints into the dusk)
It’s hard enough to find in the
light.
BARBARA
There it is.
(She points)
They move toward a grave with a standard rectangular
stone. It is an unkept grave, its outline cropped and
overgrown with grass and wilted flowers. John takes the
flowered cross and, stepping close to the headstone, embeds
its wire-prong base into the earth, as he rambles on.
JOHN
Wonder what happened to the one
from last year? Every year
twenty-five bucks for one of these
things, and the one from last year
is gone....
We hear Barbara’s voice. The camera stays on John as he
builds up some dirt around the base of the ornament.
BARBARA
The flowers die.... and the
caretaker or somebody takes them
away...
6.
JOHN
(Standing, brushing himself
off)
Yeah, a little spit and polish and
they can sell them again. I
wonder how many times we’ve bought
the same...
He doesn’t finish, in standing he sees his sister with a
pair of rosary beads and he stops talking.
She is praying silently, looking down at the ground. John
straightens his tie and buttons his jacket. He steps
behind his sister, puts his hands in his pockets, and rocks
nervously on one foot. She continues to pray. John looks
around the cemetery.
The stones are soft and white... they seem very pale.
There are a few moving shadows. The sounds of the night
seem louder, but this is only because they have stopped
talking. The situation does not seem ominous. John is
merely bored. In the distance, a huddled figure is walking
among the graves.
JOHN
(Glancing at his watch)
C’mon, Barb, church was this
morning...
The girl continues her prayers. John lights a cigarette,
idly exhales the first puff of smoke and looks around
again.
The huddled figure still moves slowly among the graves.
John turns to his sister and is about to say something but
sees her making the sign of the cross and dropping her
beads in her purse. She turns from the grave and they both
start to walk slowly away.
JOHN
(Slightly uncomfortable about
urging her to leave)
Well ... I mean ... prayin’s for
church.
BARBARA
I haven’t seen you in church
lately.
7.
JOHN
Well, grandpa told me I was damned
to hell ... (He says this lightly,
looking ahead to a large tree. He
smiles.) You remember? Right
here... I jumped out at you from
behind that tree ... Grandpa got
all excited ... “You will be
damned ta hell” ...
Barbara smiles.
JOHN
Right here, I jumped out from
behind that tree at you.
Barbara expresses annoyance.
JOHN
You used to be so scared here.
BARBARA
Johneee!
(With forced irritation)
JOHN
(Laughing, playfully)
You’re still afraid...
BARBARA
Stop it... I mean it...
JOHN
(Mockingly)
...They’re gonna get you,
Barbara...
BARBARA
Stop it.. You’re ignorant...
JOHN
They’re coming for you,
Barbara .... They’re gonna get
you... (He leers at her, as though
he is about to pounce).
BARBARA
(Becoming a little nervous)
Johnny, stop...
8.
JOHN
(Mockingly ominous)
They’re coming out of their
graves ... after you... they’re
coming... to get you...
With this, John throws up his arms and his voice rises.
The figure moving among the graves stops, and stands for a
moment. Barbara glances toward the figure and momentarily
her anxiety turns to embarrassment.
BARBARA
(As we cut back to her)
You’re acting like an idiot.
John speaks in a low tone now, glancing at the figure as
they draw closer in their perpendicular paths. John’s
remarks now are directed to Barbara, as though he didn’t
want the old man to hear...
JOHN
Here comes one of them now...
BARBARA
(Walking faster)
He’ll hear you...
JOHN
Coming to get you...
Barbara purses her lips in anger. The couple is now only a
few yards from intersection their path with the old
figure...
JOHN
(In a mocked-panic whisper)
I’m getting’ outa here...
He bolts and runs up the path.
BARBARA
John ....
Embarrassed, she cuts herself short and continues to walk,
more rapidly now. Up the path, beyond the intersection of
the man’s row. John stops, laughing, and turns to look
back at his sister. She is near the place where the paths
meet, and so is the old man. We cut close to her. She is
looking down in embarrassed silence, aware of her proximity
with the old man. She feigns poise, and as she makes the
intersection looks up nervously to deliver a socially
necessary smile to the old mourner...
9.
The old man lunges at the girl, his hand grabs at her
hair. A frightened gasp chokes her. She is coughing. The
man grips her arm and slashes at her clothing. She flails
about choking trying to yell....
JOHN
(Horrified)
Hey... god...
The man is all over Barbara, unable to hold her in her
violent flailing. His grabbing tears her jacket and
scratches her face. He seems to be trying to bite her arm.
John leaps at the man. The three fall to the ground,
Barbara kicking, and beating with her purse. John gets a
firm hold on the man and Barbara is able to wrench free.
The man is thrashing wildly at all parts of John’s body.
They struggle to their feet, the figure thrashes, beats,
tears like an animal... John clutches at him and they fall
in a heap. In the darkness, their form is as one thrashing
thing.
Barbara screams wildly. The two men make animal sounds.
One figure gains the advantage and slams his fists down
against the other’s head. Barbara is panic-stricken. Her
screams turn to frenzied gasps as she finds a tree limb and
snatches it up. But when she looks up, she sees that one
has vanquished the other. She stops in her tracks. Night
sounds. A close shot makes it clear that John is lying
limply on the ground with the other man hunched over his
form. The man is doing something with the limp body, still
ripping at it... perhaps groping for money... Barbara
cannot tell...
BARBARA
Johnee....
The old man freezes and looks up. The girl raises her club
and rushes toward him. He jumps into a half-standing
position, like an animal hunched to spring... Barbara stops
in her tracks. The man is breathing heavily. She starts
to back away. The man holds very still. She backs
further... Faster... total fear. The man starts to move
slowly... cat-like. He steps over the body.
Barbara drops the club and breaks into a dead run down the
path. She screams. The man moves after her, but he is
considerably slower that she, with seeming difficulty in
moving. He appears almost crippled.
10.
In a flailing run, Barbara reaches the car, sobbing. She
yanks open the door. She can hear the man drawing nearer.
She scrambles into the front seat and slams the door
shut ... No key. The man draws nearer, seeming to move
faster, more desperate to reach the girl. Barbara sobs ...
she clenches the steering wheel. The driver’s window is
open, she struggles to roll it up ... then pushes the lock
button. The man is upon the car. Barbara dives across the
seat to slam down the passenger-side lock button. The man
rips at the door handles and pounds violently at the car.
The girl starts screaming again. The man.. Pounding..
Clawing ... he grabs a stone from the road ... the
passenger window shatters into thousands of little cracks.
Another pound sends the stone through the window, and hands
grab through the opening to peel away the flakes of glass
in sections. Barbara’s screams become more violent.
She summons enough presence of mind to reach for the
emergency brake. The man pounds and flails at the window.
The car, at the top of a long grade, slowly starts to
drift. The man struggles to hold it ... to rip out the
glass ... his arm breaks through, his sleeve is ripped and
tattered ... the hand grabs at the inside of the door ...
the car moving faster ... the man struggles to cling ... he
is forced to trot after the car ... faster ... he losses
his footing ... grabs at the fender, the bumper. He falls
into the road ... the car gains momentum. The man regains
his footing and starts after the car. It is moving
faster. Barbara is frozen in the driver’s seat, clenching
the wheel. The road ahead is black ... the speed is
frightening ... she pulls the light switch ... The
headlights dance beams of light among the trees. The beams
reveal the grade in the road, which is narrowing to one car
width, and, about two hundred feet ahead, the downhill
grade ends and an uphill grade begins. In desperation, the
girl looks out the rear window. Against the sky, in the
light from the cemetery gate, the man is still coming after
them. In panic, she looks about. She is still in the
cemetery proper. Rows of graves on both sides of the
road. No lights from houses, no signs of life. The car
slows. It’s momentum carries it some distance up the
upgrade. Barbara glances backwards ... the man is moving
faster toward her ... she is terrified... the car reaches a
full stop. There is increased panic in her face ... as
she forgets herself and the car begins to drift
backward ... toward the man, as he draws nearer. The car
picks up momentum, carrying her toward her pursuer.
11.
She grabs at the emergency brake and yanks it tight, the
lurch of the car throwing her against the seat. She
struggles with the door handle; the button pops up ... the
man draws nearer ... she breaks from the car. The man
keeps coming, desperately trying to move faster ...
Barbara runs, off the roadway and onto the turf of the
cemetery. She falls ... kicks her shoes off ... gets up
and keeps running. The man is still after her. She reaches
a low stone wall which marks the end of the cemetery. She
struggles over it and looks ahead for a moment to get her
bearings. Across a main highway is a darkened gasoline
station, and beyond it an old house. She pants heavily,
glancing up and down the highway ... but there is no sigh
of traffic. The man is nearing the low cemetery wall. She
breaks into a run across the highway.
The gasoline station shows no signs of life. It is old and
decrepit. One light is out over the pumps. The pump house
and surroundings are nearly lost in shadow. Some fifty
yards away, there is the old house. She runs toward it.
She presses against the side of the house, in a darkened
corner, trying to look up into the window. Across the
highway, she sees her pursuer struggle over the little
wall, and in his clumsiness fall groveling on the ground.
In panic, she runs to the rear of the house and into the
shadows of a small back porch. Her first impulse is to cry
out for help, but she silences herself in favor of trying
to stay hidden. She gasps, trying to hold her breath.
Silence ... night sounds ... and the sounds of the man’s
funning footsteps slowing to a trot ... then a walk ... the
footsteps stop.
Barbara quickly glances about. There is a rear window. She
peers through it, but inside everything is dark. The
pursuing footsteps take up again. She presses back against
the door of the house, and her hand falls on the doorknob.
She looks down at it, grabs it with a turn, and the door
opens. She enters quickly, as quietly as possible, and
closes the door softly behind her, bolting it and feeling
in the darkness for a key. Her hand finds a skeleton key,
and she turns it, making a small rasp and click. She leans
against the door, listening, and can still hear the distant
footfalls.
12.
Barbara finds that she is in the kitchen of the old house.
She gropes through a door and into a large living room ...
no sign of life. Her impulse is to cry for help, but again
she stops herself for fear of being heard by the man
outside. She darts back to the kitchen, rummages through
drawers in a kitchen cabinet, and finds the silverware.
She chooses a large steak knife and, grasping it tightly,
goes to listen at the door again. All is quiet. She goes
back into the living room.
Beyond it is an alcove that contains the front entrance to
the house. She rushes to the front door and makes sure it
is locked. Cautiously, she pushes back a corner of the
curtain to see outside. The view overlooks an expansive
lawn, large shadowy pine trees, and the service station
across the road.
There is no sign of the attacker. Suddenly, there is noise
from outside: the pounding and rattling of a door. Barbara
drops the curtain edge and stiffens. More sounds. She
hurries to a side window. Across the lawn, the man is
pounding at the door to the garage. She watches, her eyes
wide with fear. The man struggles with the door, then
looks about and picks up something and smashes at it. In
panic, Barbara pulls away from the window.
Across the room is a telephone. She rushes to it and picks
up the receiver ... dial tone ... she frantically dials the
operator ... some Buzzes and clicks ... then ...
TELEPHONE OPERATOR RECORDING
(V.O.)
I’m sorry ... our lines are
busy ... would you hold the line
please ... I’m sorry ... our lines
are ...
She quickly depresses the receiver buttons ... lets them up
and dials again ... long pause ... she can hear sounds from
the gas station ...
TELEPHONE OPERATOR (V.O.)
I’m sorry ... our lines ...
13.
She depresses the buttons again ... dials 411 for
information ... another long pause ... then the rasp of a
busy signal. The noises from the service station have
stopped. She listens for a moment ... she shudders with
fear ... notices a telephone directory in a stand near the
phone. Frantically, her fingers search to pages for the
emergency numbers ... the police. She dials shakily, but
before she has dialed the last numbers the rapines of the
busy signal comes over the receiver. She depresses the
buttons again ... footsteps ... she puts the phone down and
rushes to another window. A figure is crossing the lawn,
coming toward the house. It is a different figure, a
different man. She runs to the door and peers out through
the curtains again. The man still walks toward the house.
A shadow darkens a strip of window at the left of the
door. Its abruptness startles her. She peels back a corner
of the curtain and sees the back of the first attacker not
ten feet away, facing the man who is approaching. The
attacker moves toward the new man. Barbara freezes against
the door, and glances down at her knife ... she looks back
out at the two men.
They join each other under the dark, hanging trees, and
stand looking back toward the cemetery. From inside the
house, Barbara squints, trying to see. Finally, the
attacker moves back across the road, in the direction of
the cemetery. The other man approaches the house, seeks
the shadows of a tree, and stops ... in an attitude of
stolid watching ... Barbara stares, but can see little.
She lunges toward the phone again ... dials the
operator ... the same recorded message. She barely stops
herself from slamming down the receiver.
Then suddenly a distant sound ... an approaching car. She
scampers to the window and looks out. The road seems
empty. But after a moment a faint light appears, bouncing
and rapidly approaching ... a car coming up the road.
Barbara reaches for the doorknob, edges the door open very
slightly. The light spills dimly over the area. There,
under the great tree in the lawn, is the silhouette of the
second man. Barbara shudders ... she is afraid to make her
break for the approaching car.
The figure appears to be sitting, quite still, it’s head
and shoulders slumped over ... it seems to be looking right
at the house. The car speeds by ... Barbara just stares at
the figure. She cannot run. She closes the door and backs
into the shadows of the house.
14.
She turns to see all around her. The large dreary rooms
are very quiet, cast in shadow ... she spies a stairway ...
runs toward it still carrying the knife and starts up the
stairs. The camera is level with her eye, and picks up her
view of the stairs as she runs up ... panting and frantic
she climbs, her hand grazing the banister ... still at her
eye level, The camera starts to pick up the top of the
stairway ... the floor of the second landing ... A brief
glimpse of something on the floor there ... she continues
to climb ... the floor of the landing ... zoom in ...
toward camera, the hand of ... A corpse.
Barbara stops ... the corpse is almost skeletal with its
flesh ripped from it, and it lies at the end of a trail of
blood. Screaming in absolute horror, Barbara almost falls
down the stairs. She is gagging ... she breaks for the
door, unlocks it, and flings herself out into the night,
completely unmindful of consequences ... she is bathed in
light ... two headlights are screeching toward camera ...
the sounds of a vehicle stopping. Barbara covers her face
with her arms. Someone rushes toward her ...
MAN
Are you one of ‘em?  
She stares, frozen. A man stands in front of her. He is
large and crude, in coveralls and tattered work shirt. He
looks very strong, and perhaps a little stupid. Behind him
is and old, battered pick-up truck, which he has driven
right up onto the lawn of the house. He holds a large
jack-handle in his hand, and stands there panting. Behind
him, the man at the tree still stands.
Barbara is still frozen ...
MAN
(The man shouts again)
Are you one of ‘em? I seen ‘em to
look like you ...
The man at the tree moves forward ... Barbara screams and
steps back ... the truck driver spins to face the other
man. The other man stops in his tracks. The truck driver
backs protectively toward the girl, while the other stands,
just watching. Finally, the truck driver seizes Barbara’s
wrist and pulls her into the house, slamming the door
behind them.
Barbara falls back against a wall. The truck driver locks
the door and throws the bolt. He is breathing hard. He
turns to look at the girl. She brings the knife up in a
defensive gesture ...
TRUCKDRIVER
(Soothingly, in a drawl,
almost as he would address a
scared rabbit)
All right ... It’s awright
now ...
15.
She stares widely at him. He immediately concerns himself
with his surroundings. He moves into the next room to
check the windows. He tries a lamp, it lights, he turns it
off.
Barbara weakly lowers the knife and falls to a sitting
position in a chair. She watches the man intently ... he
calls to her from the other room ... .
TRUCKDRIVER
Don’t you mind the creep
outside ... I can handle him ...
There’s probably gonna be lots
more of ‘em ... soon’s they fin’
out about us ... I’m outta
gas ... them pumps over there is
locked ... is there food
here? ... . I’ll get us some
grub ... then we beat ‘em off an’
skedaddle ...
She just stares at him.
TRUCKDRIVER
It ain’t no good no way. Might’s
well have two tincans and a
string ... You live here?
She remains silent, looking toward the top of the stairs.
The man follows her stare and starts toward the
stairs ... . Halfway up he sees the corpse and stops ...
TRUCKDRIVER
Oh ... bejeses ...
(He stares for a moment, then
slowly backs down the
stairs.)
At the bottom of the stairs, he just looks at the girl
shivering with shock in her chair. Then he forces himself
back into action.
TRUCKDRIVER
We gotta bust outta here ... git
to where there’s some folks ...
somebody with guns or
somethin ... .
(He quickly moves toward the
kitchen.)
I’ll try to scare up some grub.
16.
He enters the kitchen and starts to rummage. He flings open
the refrigerator and the cupboards. Finding a stack of
large paper grocery bags, he opens one and starts to fill
it with things from the refrigerator. He hurls the stuff
into the bag. He is interrupted by Barbara’s voice ...
BARBARA
(Weakly)
What’s happening?
The man looks up at her ...
BARBARA
(Repeating)
What’s happening?
(She shakes her head in
fright and bewilderment)
The truck driver looks at her. She stands like a frightened
child in the kitchen doorway. He is amazed at her
question. A shattering crash startles them. The man drops
the groceries and seizes his jack-handle. He runs to the
front door and looks out through the curtained window.
Another shattering sound. The first attacker has joined
the second man at the old pick-up truck, and with great
sticks the two are smashing out the headlights.
TRUCKDRIVER
Two of ‘em.
Once the lights are battered out, the two men outside start
to beat at the body of the truck. The truck driver spins
and lunges toward the girl.
TRUCKDRIVER
How many ... how many ...
She backs further away ... the truck driver lunges again,
this time in desperation to make her understand ... .
TRUCKDRIVER
How many ... come on, now ... . ah
know you’re scared ... but ah can
handle them two bohoppers ... Now
how many more is out there ...
that truck’s our only chance to
git outta here ... How many ...
how many ...
He grabs her shoulders and she struggles against him,
thrashing hysterical ...
17.
BARBARA
I don’t know ... I don’t know ...
what’s happening? ... . I don’t
know what’s happening ... .
She breaks into hysterical sobbing. The truck driver spins
away from her and breaks for the door. He looks out the
window for a moment. The attackers still beat at the
truck, wildly trying to tear it apart. The truck driver
flings open the door and leaps off of the porch. The two
men look up ... for the first time we see the faces of the
attackers ... they are dead things ... the flesh on their
faces is rotting and oozing ... their eyes bulge from deep
sockets ... their hair is long, and their clothing rotten
and in tatters. They are ghoulish beings, staring up at
the truck driver ... he starts for them slowly, with
building vengeance. He moves steadily at first ... with
controlled power ... he speaks as he advances ... wielding
his jack-handle ... .
TRUCKDRIVER
Come ‘n git it ... come on ‘n git
some o’ this jack-handle ...
He concentrates on his attack ... moving stolidly toward
the two creatures ... he breaks almost into a run. But the
two, rather than backing off, move toward the man ... as
though drawn by some urge. The man pounds into them,
swinging and thrashing with arms and jack-handle. They are
buffeted by his blows ... they seem weak compared to
him ... but his powerful blows don’t really stop them. It
is like beating a rug. He flings them back and they advance
again. It is a violent, brutal struggle. But the big man
finally beats the two into the ground, and for a great
while continues to pound a their limp forms. He breaks
into almost sobbing with each of his blows. He beats at
them and beats at them as the girl watches in shock from
the porch ... he thrashes and beats until she starts to
scream again. Her screams pierce the night. The man
stops. Breathing heavily, he stands, enveloped in the
quiet of the night.
The girl stands in the doorway, the truck driver turns to
face her, he is out of breath. Suddenly, a noise behind the
girl, she spins ... and walking toward her from the
kitchen is another of the hideous creatures ... the truck
driver leaps toward the thing ...
TRUCKDRIVER
Lock that door!
18.
Barbara slams the door and locks it, backing against it, as
another equally brutal struggle ensues in the living room.
The big man again beats the attacker down ... . but another
appears at the kitchen door. The truck driver leaps toward
it, and with powerful jack-handle blows drives it out
beyond the door so that he can fall against it, shutting
it. He bolts it and stands leaning against the frame
trying to breathe.
Long silence ... the truck driver just stares down at the
floor ...
TRUCKDRIVER
They know we’re in here, now ...
there ain’t no use disputin’ that.
Outside the house, the fourth ghoul stands staring at the
back door. Another slowly walks up behind it ... and
another. At the front of the house, three more stand near
the bodies of the first two.
Pull off and follow focus from the front yard of the house,
through the curtains at the front door, to the face of the
girl as she spins to face the camera. Her face twitches in
fright, and her eyes are wide with a non-blinking stare.
As she spins, her eyes fall on the floor, where the dead
humanoid lies. The thing is askew on its back, its right
arm extended toward the girl with fingers twisted as though
to grab.
(Cut to MCU. Camera is trucking in slowly.)
There is a slight movement in the thing’s hand. It
twitches ... the whole body twitches slightly. The bent,
broken neck has the being’s head twisted upward, in an
open-mouthed glassy stare ... Barbara steps toward the
thing. The fear in her face bears the beginnings of a sick
frown. The hand twitches again. The girl moves closer,
drawn toward it, staring down at it with overpowering
curiosity.
The thing is something dead, with the beginnings of decay
on its face and neck. Barbara moves closer. The thing
still twitches ...
She is staring right down into the thing’s eyes ... her
hands come up to her mouth ... the urge to be ill, to
scream, to run must all be fought...the glassy stare from
bulging eyes ... right back up at her ...
19.
(Camera shoots back and forth at her face and the staring
eyes of the dead thing ... zoom in on the thing ... it
seems as though the body is going to stand again ... it’s
face holds as much life as it did when it walked.)
Suddenly, with a rustling sound the thing moves ... (Cut
back.) The big truck driver has a hold on the thing’s legs
and is dragging it across the floor.
TRUCKDRIVER
Shut your eyes, girl ... I’m
gittin’ this dead behopper outta
here ... .
He is sweating. His face shows anger and anguish as he
drags the body across the floor. Barbara just stands, her
hands still at her mouth, watching. The sounds of the
man’s breathing, and his struggle, fill the room. With
the body, he reaches the back door and lets the legs
fall ...
TRUCKDRIVER
You ... filthy ...
(He cuts himself short. Cut-in for close-up.)
The stark light on the big man’s face makes him shine in
his sweat. His eyes are alert, and afraid. He turns
quickly to see through the small window-panes in the door.
Outside, lurking in shadow from the huge trees, the three
beings watch and wait, their arms dangling and eyes
bulging, as they stare at the truck driver’s activities.
With a swift move, the big man unbolts the door, flings it
open, and bends toward the inert thing at his feet. The
ghoulish things begin to move toward him. With one great
heave, the dead form is flopped outside the door. It lies
across the threshold. The things advance silently ... .
TRUCKDRIVER
Filthy ... .
Another great effort shoves the body almost clear. From
inside the house, the big man’s efforts cannot be clearly
seen by the girl, because the doorframe is blocking her
view. She moves into the kitchen. The truck driver flops
the body down onto the edge of the porch. The three
figures are close upon him, are starting to reach out. The
big man shudders. He fumbles into the breast pocket of
this work shirt. The things advance. He produces a pack
of matches, manages to strike one ... and touches the
burning tip to the clothing of the dead thing, and with
almost a popping sound the clothing catches fire ... .
20.
The things in the yard stop in their tracks ... the fire
blazes slowly. Shaking, the truck driver touches the match
to other aspects of the thing’s clothing. His fingers
burn, and he snaps them, throwing the match into the heaped
form. He is breathing hard. Standing, he kicks the
burning thing off the edge of the porch ... watches it
roll down three small steps onto the grass, where it lies
still, the flames licking around it. The three beings step
back slightly ... the big man clings to the banister around
the little porch ... his fists clench and his face is fiery
in the glow of the flames. His voice quivers ...
TRUCKDRIVER
I’ll git you.. ah’m gonna git you.
All of you ... . (His voice grows
stronger in his violence) All of
you ...
He stands defiantly on the little porch, the flaming corpse
separating from the things that wait. He spins
suddenly ... the girl stands inside the kitchen door. His
face is a fury of sweat and quivering anger. His eyes meet
the girl’s ... she steps slowly back into the room. The
big man, in great strides, re-enters the kitchen and slams
the door, bolting it again. His breathing, still loud, is
even more rapid than before. His eyes dart quickly about
the room in search of something.
He rushes to the cabinets and throws them open, begins
rummaging through them. Standard kitchen utensils and
supplies. He does not speak, just frantically ransacks the
room ... .
TRUCKDRIVER
See if you can find the light
switch.
Barbara falls back against a wall, and her hand gropes to a
switch. The light from an overhead fixture comes on,
providing dim illumination. The big man continues to
clatter about frantically. The light coming on makes the
girl blink. She remains against the wall, her hand still
touching the switch. It is as though she dare not move.
She watches silently.
21.
The man flings open drawers and spills contents onto the
shelving and onto the floor. His hands fall to the
silverware drawer, still open from when Barbara first
discovered it. He pulls it out until it stoops itself with
a crash. He roots through it, pulls out a large knife and,
sucking his breath in, stuffs it under his belt. Then he
reaches into the drawer again and produces another knife.
Taking Barbara by surprise, he strides toward her. He
shoves the knife at her, handle first, but she falls back
slightly. Her action stays his franticness ... breathing
heavily through his words, he speaks to her ...
TRUCKDRIVER
... now ... you hang on ... to
this ...
She hesitates, but she takes the knife. She seems weak,
almost apathetic, as though she is losing control of
herself. She stares at the weapon in her hand, then her
eyes come up to meet the man’s intense face.
TRUCKDRIVER
All right.
He pulls away from her and continues to rummage, but he
speaks periodically now, between great breaths, and between
the brief times when his interest is wrapped in something
he finds in his rummaging. His search is not without
control; it has a coordinated purpose; it is selective,
although frantic and desperate. He looks for nails and
strips of wood or planks that he might nail around doors
and windows. His actions are hurried, and intent after
these defensive ends. At first, his search has his full
attention. Gradually, as he moves about, and begins to come
up with several key items that he needs, his efforts pace
down into a more deliberate flow ... he starts putting up
boards and tables against the vulnerable parts of the old
house.
The mood relaxes in intensity, becomes calmer, more
analytical ... the barricading instills a feeling of
greater security. And the knowledge of some security
begins to overtake the girl, bringing her out of her shock
and passivity. The scene proceeds as follows ... the
girl looks at her knife, recedes against the wall. The
noise of the search is ever-present. The man mutters
occasionally, and spills his findings about the room. At
first, as new cabinets and drawers fail to turn up what he
is looking for, he grows impatient and more violent ...
spools of thread, buttons, manicure implements, shoe-shine
materials ... Another drawer ... immediately, as the
drawer is flung open with a clatter, the big man sees what
he needs ... he almost leaps into the drawer ...
22.
TRUCKDRIVER
Tell me ... you ain’t the sweetest
thing ...
His big hand comes out of the drawer with an old pipetobacco
tin, and in one gesture he spills its contents onto
a shelf ... nails and screws and washers and tacks spill
out onto the wooden shelf. A few roll too far and clatter
onto the floor. His fingers scoop them up. He fumbles
through the little pile of things and selects the longest
nails. In the batch, and stuffs them into the breast
pocket of his work-shirt. Even as he stuffs the nails into
his pocket, he is already moving, his eyes seeking for his
next need ...
TRUCKDRIVER
See if there’s any wood around the
fireplace out there!
His hands explore the shelf surface. The girl does not
respond immediately. His impetus carries him toward
another shelf, but in turning he notices the girl, still
motionless.
TRUCKDRIVER
Look ... You ...
(Angry at first, he stops himself, then speaks still
frantically, but with less harshness)
TRUCKDRIVER (Cont’d.)
... You’re scared ... ah’m scared ... ah’m scared, too ...
jist like you ... now ... (he composes himself even more)
we ain’t gonna be worth a plugged nickle if we don’t do
something’ ... ah’m gonna board up these doors and
windows ... but you gotta pitch in ... We gotta help
ourselves, ‘cause there ain’t nobody around to help us ...
and we’re gonna be all right ... ok? ... now ... I want you
to scamper out there and see if there’s any wood in that
fireplace ...
He stops, still breathing hard. The girl just looks at
him. She starts to move, very slowly, away from the wall.
TRUCKDRIVER
Ok?
The girl is still for a long moment; then nods her head
weakly.
TRUCKDRIVER
Ok
23.
The girl leaves the room and he continues his search. She
moves quickly into the living-room area. The darkness
stops her for and instant, slowing her pace. From the
kitchen, come the clattering sounds of the man’s search.
She looks ahead. The white curtains on the windows seem to
glow, and every shadow seems suspect. Barbara shudders.
(Shot of the foreboding room. Closer shot on her face.)
On a table is a bowl of large, rounded flowers ... a breeze
causes them to stir in sync with a sound from the kitchen.
The effect startles the girl; she dives for a table lamp,
clicks it on, and dull illumination fills the room. The
room is empty. She starts slowly toward the fireplace.
Near it, is a stack of logwood, and a few planks that might
be large enough to nail across the windows. Still
clutching her knife, she bends over the pile and gathers up
the planking. She stands with her awkward load, and the
foreboding room faces her again, stopping her. She bolts
and hurries toward the kitchen.
Bursting through the door, she finds the big man pounding
with his jack-handle at the hinges on a tall broom-closet
door. One final swipe and a great yank frees the wooden
door, and the man stands it against the wall next to the
broom-closet. In the recesses of the closet, the man spots
other useful items and pulls them out ... an ironing board,
three center boards from a dining table, and some old scrap
lumber.
24.
He motions for Barbara to follow, as he grabs the closet
door and moves to the back door of the house, which he had
previously bolted against the beings outside. He slaps the
closet door up against the paned portion of the kitchen
door and finds that with this same piece he can cover the
kitchen window. He leans against the piece of wood and
gropes in his pocket for nails. The door starts to slip
slightly; it does not completely cover the adjoining
window, but it leaves slots of glass at the top and bottom:
however, it does cover the glass part of the entrance
door. Barbara drops her burden and moves swiftly, helping
the man by holding an end of the barrier in position. The
truck-driver accepts her help automatically, without
recognition, and gives the barricade a cursory inspection
as he determines where to sink the nails. Pulling several
nails from his pocket, he places them and drives them in
with his jack-handle. He drives two on his through the
door and molding until they grab, then moves to her side
and drives two more. When four are in, he whacks at them
with the jack-handle until they are completely sunken, then
begins to add more. Now he starts to talk. The first
decisive steps are taken. Quite a lot of relief comes with
it. Most of the house is still vulnerable, but the
measures taken instill confidence. While he talks, though,
he keeps working rapidly, his pace as intense as ever ...
TRUCKDRIVER
There, by god ... this ought to
hamp their crimper ... they ain’t
that strong ... there ... .
Two more nails, in position, driven to the molding. He
tests the barricading wood with two good yanks. It holds.
TRUCKDRIVER
They ain’t comin’ through that.
He drives the last two nails in all the way.
TRUCKDRIVER
Gotta figure out how much nails we
got.
He sees the parts of the windows that remain uncovered.
TRUCKDRIVER
I’ll leave that for now. We’ll
fix the rest.
He turns quickly from the barricade and looks around the
room. No other doors or windows except the door that leads
to the living-room.
25.
TRUCKDRIVER
Well ... this place is fairly
secure ...
He examines planks and table extensions.
TRUCKDRIVER
Now ... if we have to ...
The girl just stands and watches him.
TRUCKDRIVER
If we have to ... we just run in
here ... and no draggin’ now, or
fussin’ with your make-up, or I
leave you out there. We run in
here and board up this door.
The door between the kitchen and living-room has been open
all the time. The big man closes it, tests it, it shuts
tight. He opens it again. He quickly chooses several of
the lumber strips and stands them against the doorframe.
He gropes in his pocket and notices that his supply of
nails is dwindling. He checks the pile sprinkled from the
can. He empties the can completely and fingers the
contents for all of the longest nails, and tosses just
these back into the can. He hands the can to the girl ...
TRUCKDRIVER
You take these.
This time she reacts quickly and takes the little tobacco
tin from his big hand. As she does so, the man gathers as
much of the lumber as he can into his arms and starts out
of the room. Barbara follows. They are in the livingroom.
TRUCKDRIVER
It ain’t gonna be too long, they
be tryin’ to hammer their way in
here. they’re afraid now.
He drops his load of wood in the middle of the floor and
walks over to the largest front windows, talking as he
moves. His speech is rapid.
TRUCKDRIVER
They’re scairt of fire too, i
found that out ...
26.
His eye measures the size of the big windows. He looks all
around the room. Finally, his eyes fix on the large dining
table, and he moves quickly toward it, talking as he moves,
resuming his train of thought ...
TRUCKDRIVER
There must’ve been fifty ... a
hundred of ‘em down in cambria
when the news broke ... .
Barbara watches, almost transfixed. At his mention of the
number of the things, her eyes reflect amazement, and
frightened curiosity. The man reaches the table, walks
around it studying its size, then hoists one end and turns
it onto its side. Bracing it against himself, he heaves on
one of the legs and tries to break it free. With a great
ripping sound, the table leg is torn off, and the man drops
it onto the rug. He continues talking, punctuation his
remarks with vengeance on the table as he rips all the legs
off.
TRUCKDRIVER
I seen this big gasoline truck,
you know ... down beekman’s ... beekman’s diner ... and I had
heard the radio ... I got a radio
in my truck ... .
He wrenches at the second table leg ... it cracks loudly
but does not come free. He moves to where his jack-handle
lies on the floor.
TRUCKDRIVER
... This cas’line truck come
screamin’ outta the diner lot onto
the road ... must be ten ...
fifteen of them things chasin’
it ... and it looks funny to me,
but I don’t see the things runnin’
behind it right away ...
He picks up the jack-handle and hammers at the table leg.
The second powerful swat frees the leg. He moves on to the
third.
27.
TRUCKDRIVER
I just see this big truck ... and
it looks funny, you know, how slow
trucks’ll start ... and it’s
pullin’ out onto the road ... and
weavin’ ... then I see them
things ... and the truck’s movin’
so slow, they’re catchin’ up ...
and grabbin’ ... jumpin’ on ...
Another table leg falls loose to the rug.
TRUCKDRIVER
And that truck just cut right
‘cross the road ... through the
guard rail, you know. i’m
startin’ to throw on my brakes,
and the truck smashes into this
big sign and into the pumps in the
esso station down there ... I
hear this crash ... and that big
thing starts burnin’ ... and it’s
still movin’ ... right through
the pump stand and on into the
station ... and I’m stopped,
stock still ... and I see them
things ... and they all startin’
to back off ... Some of em
runnin’ ... or at least it looks
like they’re runnin’, but they
move kinda like they’re
crippled ... but they keep backin
off ... and it’s like ... it’s
like they gotta get away from the
fires ... And the guy drivin’ the
truck can’t get out nohow ... he
got the cab of the truck plowed
halfway into the wall of the
station ... that thing’s fryin’
him in there and he’s
screamin’ ... screamin’ like
hell ...
Barbara’s eyes deepen and her face wrinkles in anxiety.
The continuing nightmare grows more and more complex. The
man swats the last leg from the table, and the table-top
starts to drop. He regains control of it and struggles,
trying to move it into the next room. Barbara
automatically moves to his assistance and they walk
together, each burdened by the heavy table.
28.
TRUCKDRIVER
I don’t know what’s gonna happen,
you know? I mean ... I don’t
know what the whole place gonna
explode ... or fly to pieces ...
or what’s gonna happen ... I
start drivin’ for the gas
station ... and the cat in the
truck is screamin’ and
screamin’ ... and after a while
he just stops ...
The man sets down his end of the table, and wipes beads of
sweat from his forehead. His breathing is still heavy from
his previous exertion. He wipes his hand on his shirt.
His eyes are wide and angry ... it almost seems as though
he might weep.
29.
TRUCKDRIVER
... And there’s them things
standin’ back ... ‘cross the
road ... standin’ lookin’
like ... lookin like ... like
they just come back from the grave
or somethin’ ... and they’re over
by the diner ... and there’s cars
and busses in the diner lot, and
lots of windows is smashed. and
it’s for sure them things done the
people in the diner in ... and
more is outside, all over the
place, just bidin’ their time for
a chance to move in. so I start
my truck up, and I barrel it right
at some of them things ... I’m
steamin’ down right on ‘em ...
(His face grows more intense
with the memory) and I get a
good look at ‘em ... I see
them for the first time in my
lights ... and then ... I
just run right down on
‘em ... I just grind down,
down hard as I can ... and I
knock a couple of ‘em about
fifty feet, flailin’ into the
air ... and I just want to
smash them ... crush them
filthy things. And they’re
just standin’ there. They
ain’t runnin’, they ain’t
even tryin’ to get outta the
road. some of em is even
reachin’ out, as if they can
grab me. But they’re just
standin’ there, and the truck
is runnin’ them down ...
like they was bugs or
something’ ... they ...
Barbara is wide-eyed, staring in disgust, her hands still
clutched to the table-top. She says nothing. The man sees
her fear and stops himself.
TRUCKDRIVER ... I ... . I’m ...
He refocuses his attention on the table-top, and starts to
lift it again. Barbara is practically motionless. As he
tugs the table, her hands fall away and she slowly pulls
them against herself. He drags the table away from her,
and she walks numbly behind, having forgotten to assist.
She just watches the man’s face.
30.
TRUCKDRIVER
... I’m just ... I got kids,
you know ... and ... I guess
they’ll do all right ... they can
take care of themselves ... but
they’re still only kids ... and
I’m bein’ away and all ... .
and ...
Perspiring heavily, he tugs the twists at the table-top,
trying to fit it through the doorframe and into the livingroom.
TRUCKDRIVER
I’m just gonna do what i can ...
and I’m gonna get back ... and
I’m gonna see my people ... and
things is gonna be all
right ... and ... I’m gonna get
back ... .
He has started to almost babble ... he sees the girl
intently watching him, and he stops. He composes himself
with some effort, and starts to speak a little more
slowly. His voice is almost a monotone, with enforced
calm, but he does, beneath his anger, seem as confident as
could be expected of anyone under the circumstances.
TRUCKDRIVER
Now, you and me is gonna be all
right, too. we can head them
things off. I mean ... you can
just ... just smash ‘em. All you
got to do is just keep your head
and don’t be too afraid. We move
faster than they can. and they’re
awful weak ... and if you don’t
run and just keep swingin’ ...
you can smash ‘em. We’re smarter
‘n they are. and we’re stronger
‘n they are. We’re gonna stop
‘em, okay?
The girl stares.
TRUCKDRIVER
All we got to do is just keep our
heads.
They look at each other for a moment, until the big man
turns and picks up the table again. As he starts away with
it, the girl speaks, quietly and weakly ...
31.
BARBARA
Who are they?
The man stops in his tracks, still supporting the heavy
table-top and looks with amazement at Barbara’s anxious
face. Slowly it dawns on him that the girl has never
really been aware of the thing that has been happening.
She had not heard the radio announcements, the
bulletins ... she had been existing in a state of
uninformed shock.
TRUCKDRIVER
(Incredulously)
You ain’t heard nothin?
She stares blankly, silently, her eyes fastening in his.
Her reply is her silence.
TRUCKDRIVER
You mean you ain’t got no idea
about what’s goin’ on here?
Barbara starts to nod her answer ... she begins to
tremble ... .
BARBARA
I... I...
Her trembling increases, she begins to shake violently, and
suddenly she flings up her arms and flails them about,
sobbing wildly... she begins to walk in panic, wildly and
aimlessly, in circles about the room...
BARBARA
no ... no ... no ... no ...
I ... I can’t ... what’s
happening ... what’s happening to
us ... why ... what’s
happening ... tell me ...
tell ... me ... ..
The man grabs her, shakes her to bring her out of it, and
her sobbing jerks to a halt, but she remains staring ...
right through him, her eyes seemingly focused beyond him,
at some far distant point ... . Her speech, still nearly
hysterical, becomes a little more coherent ...
32.
BARBARA
We were in the cemetery ...
me ... and Johnnie ... . my
brother, Johnnie ... we brought
flowers for ... this ...
man ... came after me ... and
Johnnie ... he ... he
fought ... and now ... he ...
he’s ...
TRUCKDRIVER
... All right ... all right!
He tightens his grip. She wrenches against him.
BARBARA
Get your hands off me!
She flings herself away from him, beating him across the
chest, taking him by surprise. But in her momentum, she
stumbles over an end table, barely regains her balance, and
stands facing the front door ... . poised as if to run out
into the night ...
BARBARA
We’ve go to help him ... got to
get Johnnie ... we’ve got to go
out and find him ... bring
him ...
She comes toward the man, pleading with tears, the
desperate tears of a frightened child ...
BARBARA
... Bring him here ... we’ll be
safe ... we can help him ...
we ...
The man steps toward her. She backs away, holding one hand
toward him defensively, and the other toward her mouth ...
BARBARA
No ... no ... please ... we’ve
got to ... we ...
He takes one deliberate stride for her.
TRUCKDRIVER
Now ... now you calm down ...
you’re safe here ... Now we can’t
take no chances ...
33.
BARBARA
We’ve go to get Johnnie ...
TRUCKDRIVER
Now ... come on, now ... you
settle down ... you don’t know
what these things are ... It ain’t
like no sunday school out
there ... .
BARBARA
Please ... . pleeeese ... no ...
no ... no ... .
She is sobbing, violently ... her words become screams.
She is verging toward complete hysteria. The man struggles
to calm her, she wrenches from him but his grip remains, so
that her arms jerk her whole body in the act of wrenching
away. She stares at the man, their eyes meet in an instant
of calm ... but only an instant, before she screams ...
she kicks him again and again, as he struggles to pin her
arms at her sides and shove her against a wall. At the
same time, he does not want to hurt her. With brute force,
he shoves her backwards, propelling her into a soft
chair ... but she is up again, screaming and slapping at
his face. He is forced to grab her again, and practically
slam her into a corner. He brings up one powerful fist and
punches the girl ... but her head recoils and the blow is
misplaced, it does not put her out of commission. But it
shocks her into dumb, wounded silence. He hits her again,
squarely.. her eyes fall sorrowfully on his and she begins
to crumple ... she falls limp against him, as he supports
her weight, easing her into his arms. Holding her, he
looks dumbly about the room. His eyes fall on the sofa.
He does not carry, but almost walks her to the sofa,
permits her dead weight to fold onto it, and eases her head
onto a cushion.
Next to the couch is a cabinet-radio. The man stabs at a
button, clicking it on; while the radio warms up, he looks
around for the tin of nails, finds it where Barbara had
dropped it, takes nails and slides them into his pocket.
The radio hisses and crackles with static. He returns to
it and searches with the tuning dial. At first, just
static ... then it spins past what sounds like a voice,
and he adjusts carefully, trying to find the spot. The
tuner finds a metallic, monotone voice ...
34.

obviously a recording.
RADIO ANNOUNCER (V.O.)
Our live broadcasters will convey
information as received from civil
defense headquarters. This is
your civil defense emergency radio
network. normal broadcast
facilities have been temporarily
discontinued. Stay tuned to this
wave length ...
The big man waves his hand in disgust at the repetition of
the radio and moves away as it continues it’s
announcement. He resumes his efforts with the heavy wooden
tabletop. This time he drags it to the living-room
window. He leans it against the wall and pulls back the
curtain to peer outside. There are now four figures
standing in the yard. The voice of the distant radio
recording continues. The figures stand very still, their
arms dangling, aspects of their silhouettes revealing
tattered clothing or shaggy hair. They are cold, dead
things. Something in the distance suddenly startles the
truck-driver.
From across the road, a figure is moving toward the house.
The man spins himself away from the door and rushes to the
fireplace. He reaches for his matches. In the little
stand near the couch, where Barbara lies unconscious, there
are old magazines. The man grabs them, rips pages loose,
and crumples them into the fireplace. He piles kindling
wood and larger logs, then touches the paper with a lighted
match and a small fire takes hold.
35.
There is charcoal-light on the mantle. He sprays the
glowing fire and it whooshes into a larger blaze, almost
singeing the big man’s face as he works. The larger logs
begin to burn. He returns to the window. The recorded
message repeats itself continuously. The man hoists the
table-top to the window-sill, and braces it there while he
places a nail in position. He pounds with the jackhandle
... driven by desperation ... another nail ... and
another. With the table secure, he checks it hastily and
leaps to another window, where he can peer out between its
nailed-up boards.
The new figure is just reaching the place where the others
stand silently. The man rushes to the fire, where the
biggest logs have now begun to blaze. He seizes the
discarded table legs and saturates them with charcoallight,
then holds their largest ends into the fire until he
has two good flaming torches. Then, a torch in each hand,
he moves toward the door again. He nudges a big padded
armchair ahead of him to the door and, taking both torches
in one hand, pulls the curtain aside for another look at
the yard. The figures still stand silently.
With charcoal-light, he drenches the padded armchair and
touches it with a torch. It catches instantly, and flames
lick and climb, casting flickering light throughout the
house. The heat on the man is severe, but he has to fight
it. He lunges for the door, unbolting it, and flinging it
wide open. From the yard, as the door bangs open, the
flaming chair is visible. It throws eerie, irregular
illumination onto the lawn. The waiting figures step back
slightly.
The man shoves the chair through the doorway, it slides
across the front porch. It topples over the edge, and the
flaming bulk tumbles down the steps onto the front lawn.
In the rolling motion, flames lick and fly, and small
particles of the chair’s stuffing leap and glow in the
night wind. The bonfire rages in the tall grass. The
waiting figures back further away.
Inside the house, the front door bands shut, and the man
fastens the bolt. He hurries again to the window, puts
more nails into the table-top, fastening it securely, then
surveys his surroundings, seeking out possible
vulnerability.
(The camera moves with him seeing the task that lies
ahead.)
36.
There is a side window in the living room, a window in the
dining room at the other side of the house, the front door
and the flanking glass panels. He turns, still inspecting,
and his eyes reflect surprise. The girl is sitting up on
the couch. Her demeanor is startling.
(As we cut to her)
Her face is bruised, and she sits in silence staring at the
floor. The radio drones on. The fire plays on her face,
and reflects in her eyes. The man takes off his jacket and
moves toward her. He fixes his jacket over her shoulders
and looks sympathetically into her face. She just stares
at the floor. The man feels dumb and helpless. Forlornly,
he moves to the pile of lumber, chooses a table-board, and
goes to the side window. The radio voice continues ...
The truck-driver boards up the two side windows, then moves
to the front door. He gets an ironing board, and places it
across the door horizontally. It extends over the flanking
glass panels leaving cracks at the top and bottom, but they
are to small for anything to get through. He drives nails
through the board into the molding and tests the barricade
for strength. Finding it sufficient, he leaves it and goes
on to the next. In the dining-room there are two closed
doors. He tries one, finds it locked, examines it and
finds no latch. It has been apparently locked with a
skeleton key. The other door is locked and leads into a
den, which contains several windows. The man is
disappointed at the added vulnerability. He thinks for a
moment, then leaves the room, shutting the door behind
him. It is clear that he has decided to board up the door
rather than try to secure the bay windows.
37.
He checks his remaining lumber. The supply is dwindling,
but he selects the best piece for boarding the den door.
He is about to start hammering when an idea strikes him.
He opens the door again and enters the room. There are
chairs, a desk, a bureau ... he steps to the desk and
starts to rummage through the drawers. He pulls out paper,
a stack of pencils and pens, a compass, a hundred little
odds and ends. Another drawer ... A hundred more
things ... he leaves it open. The bureau contains mostly
clothing, he rips out the big drawers and hurls them
through the doorway and into the dining area. One
drawer ... two ... their contents spilling onto the
floor ... he looks back at the bureau ... a final idea
hits him. He shoves the great piece of furniture through
the door, walking it through the tight opening until it
clears the doorway. Then the desk, which warrants another
struggle, as the man attempts to secure all things of
possible value before he finally nails the door shut. In
the closet, there is a lot of old clothing; the man finds a
good warm coat and jacket and flings them over his
shoulder. High on the shelves are piles of old boxes,
suitcases, hatboxes, and old umbrella. He looks for an
instant, debating their worth, or the possible worth of
what they might contain. At his feet, he sees still more
clutter, boxes, umbrellas, dust, shoes and slippers. He
picks up a pair of ladies’ flats, and examines them,
thinking of the barefoot girl out on the couch, and tucks
them under his arm.
As he pulls away, something catches his eye ... within the
dark recess of the closet, something shiny, the sheen of a
finished piece of wood, a familiar shape, lying under a
pile of dirty clothing. He reaches eagerly, and his hand
finds what he had hoped, a rifle. He sets everything down
and rummages even more eagerly all over the floor of the
closet through shoe boxes, under things, items come flying
out of the closet. A shoebox contains old letters and
postcards. But, in a cigar box, clattering around with
pipe cleaners and cleaning fluid, there is a maintenance
manual and a box of ammunition. He flips open the box and
finds it half full. He shoves manual and cartridges into
his pocket, then decides to take the whole cigar box full
of material. He tucks it under his arm, gathers jackets
and shoes, and leaves the room.
In the dining room, he drops the load of supplies on the
bureau, and the sight of the girl in the living room stops
him short. She is sitting as before, not moving.
38.
TRUCKDRIVER
We’re all right now ... this
place is good and solid. And I
found us a gun - a gun and some
bullets.
He looks at Barbara from across the room. She doesn’t seem
to take any note of his talking. He turns to his work, but
continues to speak ... .
TRUCKDRIVER
So, we got us a radio ... and
sooner or later somebody’ll come
and get us outta here.. we got
food in there ... (he starts to
board up the door to the den)
Oh ... and I got you some
shoes ... we’ll see in a minute
if they fit ... and some warm
clothes for you ...
He pounds at the nails. The pounding and the repetition of
the radio message are the only sounds. The last nail in,
the check for sturdiness, the big man turns toward the girl
again ... .
RADIO ANNOUNCER (V.O.)
... ernment to stay in your
homes. Keep all doors and windows
locked ...
Other than her upright position, the girl shows no sign of
life. Her wide eyes just stare through the floor at some
point beyond.
RADIO ANNOUNCER (V.O.)
... preferably boarded shut ...
TRUCKDRIVER
Well, that’s us ... we’re doin’
all right ...
He can’t smile, and with the girl not looking at him his
attempt is half-hearted. He takes up the rifle, the cigarbox,
a coat and her shoes in one clumsy armful.
(As he leaves the frame, the camera lingers for an
instant. The alcove in the dining area is cluttered with
things from the den, the large pieces of furniture
obscuring the door that had been tried and found locked;
The camera lingers long enough to make this door
significant.)
39.
The man kneels with his bundle in front of the girl; then
drops the armful of materials at her feet. He holds the
shoes that he found in the closet.
TRUCKDRIVER
Now, let’s see ... how big your
feet is ...
Looking up at her, he is unable to cope with her
catatonia. Her stillness makes him as gentle as he can be,
but he converses with her, still expecting her to reply and
react. She does not.
TRUCKDRIVER
Come on ...
He holds one of the shoes near her foot, waiting for her to
lift her leg and slip into the shoe. She is still.
Finally, the man takes one of her ankles and fumbles to put
the shoe on her foot. It does not go on easily, partly
because it is too small, but mostly because of her
limpness, but he gets it on, sets her foot down and takes
up the other one. He succeeds in getting the second shoe
on, and leans back on his haunches looking up at her. She
is staring at her feet.
TRUCKDRIVER
Well.. that’s er ... . that’s a
real cinderella story, ain’t it?
No response. The man reaches in reflex for his jacket
pocket, but he has given Barbara his jacket.
TRUCKDRIVER
Hey ... . you know you got my
cigarettes.
He tries to smile again. Still no reaction. He reaches
toward her and his hand enters the pocket of the jacket he
has draped over her shoulders. His action makes the girl
look directly at him, and her stare makes him
uncomfortable.
TRUCKDRIVER
You got my cigarettes.
He tries a gentler tone, as one would try to explain some
complex concept to a child. He pulls the cigarettes from
the pocket and settles back from her again. He fumbles for
a cigarette, puts it in his mouth and lights it, trying not
to look at the girl. Her gaze is still fixed on his face.
TRUCKDRIVER (CONT'D)
(Inhaling the first puff of
smoke and blowing it through
his nose)
Ok ... now ... maybe you ought
to lie down, you ...
(MORE)
40.
TRUCKDRIVER (CONT'D)
(Fumbling with the cigarette,
a thought occurs to him and
he tries it)
You smoke?
He holds up the burning cigarette. Her stare drops from
him back to the floor. He takes another drag and blows the
smoke out quickly. Another idea ...
TRUCKDRIVER
Maybe you ... .
(He stops, he is getting
nowhere, he decides that his
time had better be spent in
securing the defenses of the
old house)
Okay.
His okay is more definite than his other talk, and he
scoops up the rifle and ammunition. He examines the gun,
dumps the shells onto the floor and methodically loads
them, one at a time.
TRUCKDRIVER
Now, I don’t know if you’re
hearin’ me or not ... or if
you’re out or somethin’ ... but
I’m goin’ upstairs now ...
okay? ... now, we’re safe down
here. Ain’t nothin’ getting’ in
here ... .. at least not
easy ... I mean, they might be
able to bust through that, but
it’s gonna be some sweat, and i
could hear ‘em, and I think I
could keep ‘em out. later on,
I’m gonna fix things good, so they
can’t get in no how ... but it’s
good for the time bein’ ...
You’re okay here ...
He continues to load the rifle as he speaks, his cigarette
dangling from his lip, causing him to squint from the smoke
that curls around his eyes.
TRUCKDRIVER
Now the upstairs is the only other
way somethin’ can get in here, so
I’m gonna go up ‘n fix that ...
He snaps the clip after the last shell, and is about to
stand when his glance falls on the girl again and he tries
to get through one last time ... .
41.
TRUCKDRIVER
Okay? You gonna be all right?
She remains silent. The man stands, tucks the rifle under
his arm, grabs as much lumber as he can carry, and starts
for the stairs, the girl looks up at him, and he is aware
of it, but he keeps moving, and her stare follows.
TRUCKDRIVER
I’m gonna be right here. You’re
all right now. I’m right here,
upstairs.
He starts up the stairs. At the top of the landing he is
confronted once again with the body that lies there torn
and defaced. He sets down his supplies, and the sight of
the corpse is repulsive and he tries not to look at it.
The body is lying half across a blood-soaked throw-rug, and
a few feet away is another throw-rug, with oriental
patterns and a fringe sewn around its edge. The man grabs
the second rug and rips away one edge of the fringe. Once
the initial tear is made, the rest of the fringe peels away
easily. He frees it and, taking the rifle, ties on end of
the fringe around the barrel and the other around the
narrow part of the stock. This done, he slings the rifle
over his shoulder. Then he leans over the corpse and takes
hold of one end of the rug on which it lies, and begins
dragging it across the floor.
On the landing is a long corridor with several closed
doors. He deposits the ugly load at one of the doorways
and throws open the door. Inside is a bedroom. He tries
the other doors and finds two more bedrooms, one a child’s
room. He begins to remove furniture into the hallway; his
plan is to afterwards board up the doors. The noise of his
work fills the old house ... Downstairs, Barbara still
sits dazed on the couch. The fire flickers on her face,
and the burning wood pops loudly now and again. Objects in
the room are silhouetted and the atmosphere is stark.
(The camera moves slowly in to her face.)
RADIO ANNOUNCER (V.O.)
... facilities have been

There is a sudden buzzing sound and crackling static. Then
a hodgepodge of newsroom sounds (as heard earlier by John
on the car radio): typewriters, ticker-tape machines, low
voices talking in the background. The sounds holds for a
long while. The girl does not seem to notice.

(The voice sounds tired, but
the man is able to read his

the air of a professional

longer impressed with the
latest developments)

Barbara’s face. She is inert.)

I repeat: they can be stopped by
immobilization: that is, by
blinding or dismembering. they
are, on the average, weaker in

their strength is in numbers, in

characteristic of their onslaught
is their depraved, irrational
quest for ... human flesh ... ..
44.
At this, Barbara bolts from the couch in wild, screaming
hysteria. She runs blindly toward the front door. The
truck-driver appears at the top of the stairs. Startled,
un-slinging the gun, he leaps down the stairs. The girl is
clawing at the barricade, trying to break out of the house,
she is sobbing in wild desperation. The man is almost upon
her, but she writhes out his reach, runs across the room
toward the maze of heaped-up furniture. Suddenly, from
within the maze, strong hands grab her. She screams in
terror. The truck-driver rushes toward her, and he is
startled by the sight of the other man, who is trying to
contain the hysterical girl. Behind him, an older man
stands holding a length of pipe at his side. They have
come through the door that the truck-driver had tried and
found locked. The man holding Barbara is dressed in
coveralls; he is probably a farmer, he is big and powerfullooking.
TOM
(Still trying to calm the
girl)
It’s all right ... we’re from the
gas station ... we’re not ...
Barbara sags against him and sobs sporadically, in shock
and semi-relief. She is still nearly catatonic. The older
man rushes to the radio. The truck-driver just stares
dumbly as Tom calms the girl and leads her to a chair where
she sits very still, numb with expended emotion. The radio
voice continues with its information about the emergency.
The older man, Harry Tinsdale, crouches close to the radio,
still holding his length of pipe.
HARRY
Listen.
RADIO VOICE:
... periodic reports, as
information reaches this newsroom,
as well as survival information
and a listing of red cross rescue
points, where pick-ups will be
made as often as possible with the
equipment and staff presently
available ...
The big truck-driver stands staring at the two new men. He
exudes an air of resentment, as though the strangers have
intruded on his private little fortress.
TRUCKDRIVER
..Why ... Man, I ...
45.
TOM
Looks like you got things pretty
well locked in.
TRUCKDRIVER
(Almost in an aggressive
tone)
Man, I could’ve used some help.
How long you guys been in there?
HARRY
That’s the cellar ... . It’s the
safest place.
TRUCKDRIVER
Man, you mean you didn’t hear the
racket we was makin’ up here?
HARRY
How were we supposed to know what
was going on up here? It could
have been those things, for all we
know.
TRUCKDRIVER
That girl was screamin’. Now, you
know what a girl sounds like.
Them things don’t make no noise.
Anybody’s got to know there’s
somebody up here could use some
help.
TOM
You can’t really tell what’s goin’
on from down there ...
HARRY
We thought we could hear screams,
but that might have meant ...
Those things were in the house
after her.
TRUCKDRIVER
And you wouldn’t come up ‘n help?
TOM
(A little ashamed) ... Well, I.. if ... there was
more of us ...
HARRY
That racket sounded like the place
was being ripped apart ... How
were we supposed ...
46.
TRUCKDRIVER
You just said it was hard to hear
down there. Now you say it
sounded like the place was being
ripped apart. You better get your
story straight, mister ... ...
HARRY
All right! Now you tell me. I’m
not going to take those kind of
chances when we got a safe
place ... We luck into a safe
place, and you’re tellin’ us to
risk our lives just because
somebody needs help ... .
TRUCKDRIVER:
Somethin’ like that, yeah.
TOM
(Not knowing whose side to
take)
All right ... why don’t we
settle ... .
HARRY
(Ignoring everything but his
own line of thought)
Look, mister ... (he shouts this,
then calms his voice for the rest
of the line) all right ... we
came up, okay? We’re here. Now I
suggest we all go back downstairs
before any of these things find
out we’re in here.
TRUCKDRIVER
They can’t get in here.
TOM
You got the whole place boarded
up?
TRUCKDRIVER
(His attitude softer toward
Tom)
Most of it. all but upstairs ...
It’s weak in places, but it won’t
be hard to fix it up good ...
HARRY
You’re insane. The cellars the
safest place in the house.
47.
TRUCKDRIVER
(Lashes out)
I’m tellin’ you they can’t get in
here!
HARRY
And I’m tellin you ... those
things turned over our car. We
were damned lucky to get away at
all. Now you tell me they can’t
get
through a pile of wood.
TOM
His wife and kid’s downstairs.
The kid’s pretty badly tore up.
This statement takes the truck-driver completely by
surprise. His face softens, he exhales a deep breath.
Nobody says anything for a long moment. Finally, the
truck-driver swallows and makes his point again ...
TRUCKDRIVER:
Well, I ... I think we’re better
off up here.
TOM:
(Glancing about at the
barricades)
We could strengthen all these up,
Mr. Tinsdale.
TRUCKDRIVER:
Man, with all us workin’ we could
fix this up so nothin’ can get in
here ... and we got food ... the
fire ... and we got the radio.
HARRY:
We can bring all those things
downstairs with us. Man, you’re
crazy you got a million windows up
here ... All these windows,
you’re gonna make strong enough to
keep them out?
TRUCKDRIVER:
Them things ain’t got no strength,
man, I smashed three of ‘em pushed
another one out the door.
HARRY
I’m telling you they turned our
car onto it’s roof.
48.
TRUCKDRIVER
Oh, hell, any good five men can do
that.
HARRY
That’s my point! ... only
there’s not going to be five ... .
there’s not going to be ten ...
twenty ... thirty ... a hundred.
Maybe ... you know? Once they
know we’re in here, the place’ll
be crawlin’ with ‘em.
TRUCKDRIVER
Well, if there’s that many, there
gonna get us wherever we’re at.
HARRY
Look, in the cellar, there’s only
one door, all right? Only one.
that’s the only place we have to
protect. And Tom and I fixed it
so it locks and boards from the
inside. but all these doors and
windows ... . Why, we’d never
know where they were going to hit
us next.
TRUCKDRIVER
You got a point, Mr. Tinsdale, but
down in the cellar there’s no
place to run ... I mean, if they
do get in, there’s no back exit.
We’d be done for.
This stops Harry for an instant.
TOM
We could get out of here if we had
to ... and we can see what’s
goin’ on outside ... Down there,
there ain’t any windows.. If a
rescue party does come we’d never
know it ... windows ...
HARRY
But the cellar is the strongest
place!
49.
TRUCKDRIVER
The upstairs is just as much of a
trap as the cellar ... There’s
three rooms up there, and they
have to be boarded up like this
stuff down here ... Then if they
do get in the windows they can’t
get past the doors ... and
they’re weak, we can keep them
out. I got this gun now, and I
didn’t have it before, and I still
beat three of them off ... now,
we might have to try and get out
of here ourselves, ‘cause there
ain’t no guarantee that anybody is
gonna send help ... Suppose them
things come in here ... We can’t
bust outta the cellar, cause we
open that one door and they got
us ...
TOM
I don’t know. I think he’s right.
(he turns to the truck-driver) You
know how many’s out there?
TRUCKDRIVER
I figure maybe six, seven.
HARRY
Look, you two can do whatever you
like. I’m going back down to the
cellar, and you better decide,
because I’m gonna board up that
door and I’m not gonna be crazy
enough to unlock it again, no
matter what happens.
TOM
Wait a minute, Mr. Tinsdale, let’s
think about this for awhile ...
HARRY
Nope. I’ve made my decision. You
make yours. And you can stew in
your own juice.
50.
TOM
(Flashing anger)
Now wait a minute dammit let’s
think about this awhile ... We
can make it into the cellar if we
have to ... and if we do decide
to stay down there, we will need
some things from up here ... Now
let’s at least consider this
awhile ...
TRUCKDRIVER
Man, if you box yourself into that
cellar, and if there is a lot of
them things that get into the
house, you had it. At least up
here you can outrun the things.
Tom is gone to one of the windows and is peering out
through an opening in the barricade.
TOM
Yeah, looks like six ... or
about ... eight ...
His hand goes to his temple, and he rubs nervously, his
demeanor a little shaken. The truck-driver joins him at
the window.
TRUCKDRIVER
That’s more than there was ...
there’s a bunch out the back,
too ... (he pivots to check the
kitchen) ... unless they’re the
same ones that was back here.
He bursts into the kitchen, as the fringed rifle sling
snaps and the weapon starts to fall. He twists to keep it
on his back, and tries to grab it, reaching behind. His
attention on the gun, he does not see the door as he moves
toward it. He regains control of the gun and looks up and
stops cold. Hands are reaching through the broken glass
behind the barricades ... graying, rotting hands,
scratching, reaching, trying to grab ... and through
aspects of the glass ... the inhuman faces behind the
hands. The barrier is being strained, no doubt about that,
but it is holding well enough.
51.
The man smashes with the rifle butt against the ugly
extremities, pounding ... once, twice. One of the
grabbing hands is driven back with a shattering of the
already broken glass it was reaching through. The rifle
butt smashes one of the hands against the door molding
solidly ... but the hand, unfeeling of pain, continues to
claw after a hold. The man slides his finger to the
trigger, and turns the rifle, smashing the barrel through
another of the little broken glass areas, and two of the
gray hands seize the protruding metal. A dead face appears
behind the hands ... ugly ... expressionless. The man’s
face looks directly through the opening into the dead eyes
beyond, the man struggling desperately to control the
weapon and the zombie thing outside trying to pull it away
by the barrel. A brief instant when the muzzle points
directly at the hideous face ... BLAM ... the report
shatters the air, the lifeless thing is thrown back,
propelled by the blast, its head torn partially away, its
still outstretched hands falling back with the crumpling
body. The other hands continue to clutch and grab. Tom has
rushed into the kitchen, and Harry is standing cautiously a
few feet from the doorway, still in the dining area. A
distant voice, that of Harry’s wife, suddenly begins to cry
out from the cellar:
HELEN
Harry ... . Harry ... .
Harry ... . Are you all right?
HARRY
it’s all right, Helen ... we’re
all right ...
Tom immediately rushes to the door. The truck-driver is
pounding at a hand that is trying to work at the barricade
from the bottom. The blows seem ineffectual, as the hand,
oblivious except for the physical jouncing about from
impact, continues to grab. Tom leaps against the door and
grabs the rotting wrist with both his hands, and tries to
bend the wrist back in an effort to break it, but it seems
limp and almost pliable. Disgust sweeps over the young
man’s face. He tries to scrape the cold thing against the
edge of the broken glass, and the absence of blood is
immediately evident as the sharp edge rips into what looks
like rotting flesh.
52.
Another hand grabs at Tom’s wrist and tries to pull it
through the glass. Tom yells, and the truck-driver tries
to swing the barrel of the gun toward the thing struggling
with Tom, but another hand clutches at him even as he is
trying to help the younger man. A hand is clawing and
ripping his shirt ... but he focuses his attention on
aiming the gun. Another loud blast, and the hands Tom was
fighting jerk back, and fall into darkness. Foot against
the wall, the big man forces himself away from the door out
of the grasp of the hand still clutching his shirt. The
shirt tears away, and the thing backs off, still with the
fragment in its hand. Badly shaken, Tom just stares,
through another opening in the door. The truck-driver
takes careful aim and pulls the trigger again; the blast
rips through the thing’s chest, leaving s gaping hole in
its back ... but it remains on its feet, backing slowly
away.
TOM
Oh ... Good God!
Panicked at the failure of the weapon, the big man levels
off again ... another loud report. This time the shell
rips through the things thigh, just below the pelvis. The
thing still backs away, but as it tries to put weight on
its right leg it falls to a heap. The two men just stare
in disbelief. The thing is still moving away, dragging
itself with its arms and pushing against the ground with
its remaining leg.
TOM
Mother Of God ... What are these
things?
The truck-driver wets his lips, takes a deep breath and
holds it, carefully sights down the barrel of the rifle
again. He pulls the trigger. The shell seems to blow open
the skull of the crawling form, and it falls backwards.
TRUCKDRIVER
Damn ... damn thing from
hell ...
(His voice trembles as he
lets out his held breath)
Outside, the thing that has fallen limply, without the use
of its eyes, moves its arms in groping, clutching motions,
seemingly still trying to drag itself away.
HELEN
(From the cellar)
Harry ... . Harry! ... .
53.
After a moment of silence, the truck-driver turns from the
door.
TRUCKDRIVER
We gotta fix these boards.
He starts to move to gather supplies, when Harry speaks.
HARRY
You’re crazy ... those things are
gonna be at every door and window
in the place. We’ve got to get
into the cellar.
The big truck-driver turns to Harry with absolute fury in
his eyes. His voice is deeper in his rage, and more
commanding.
TRUCKDRIVER
Go ahead into your damn cellar!
Get outta here!
The shouting stops Harry for an instant, then his adamancy
returns. He has decided that he will go into the cellar
without the others if need be and is now prepared to gather
his supplies.
HARRY
I’m taking the girl with me.
He moves toward the refrigerator in the kitchen, but the
big man steps in front of him.
TRUCKDRIVER
You keep your hands off of her,
she’s stayin’ here with me.
Harry is stopped again for a moment. Then he moves toward
the refrigerator again.
TRUCKDRIVER (CONT'D)
And you don’t touch none of that
food.
(MORE)
54.
TRUCKDRIVER (CONT'D)
(His grip is still on the
gun, and though he doesn’t
point it at Harry, we are
aware of the power it
implies)
Now if I stay up here I’m gonna be
fightin’ for what’s up here ...
And that food and that radio and
all this is what I’m fightin’
for. And you are stone dead
wrong ... you’re just wrong, you
understand ... Now, if you’re
makin’ it to the cellar get your
ass movin’ ... go down these
stairs ... . and get out of here,
man ... and ... and ... don’t
mess with me no more ... .
HARRY
(Turning toward Tom)
The man is crazy ... he’s
crazy ... We’ve got to have food
down there ... we have a
right ...
TRUCKDRIVER
This is your house?
(He knows it isn’t)
HARRY
We’ve go a right to..
TRUCKDRIVER
(Confronting Tom)
You goin’ down there with him?
TOM
... Well ...
TRUCKDRIVER
No beatin’ around the bush ...
you goin’ or ain’t you? This is
your last chance.
There is a long moment of silence. Tom then turns to the
older man ...
TOM
Harry ... . I think he’s right.
HARRY
You’re crazy.
55.
TOM
I really think we’re better off up
here.
HARRY
You’re crazy. I got a kid down
there. He can’t take all the
racket, and those things reaching
through the glass. We’ll be lucky
if he lives as it is now.
TRUCKDRIVER
(More impersonal than ever
before)
Okay. Now you’re his father. If
you’re dumb enough to go die in
that trap, it’s your business.
But I ain’t dumb enough to go with
you. it’s just bad luck for the
kid that his old man’s so
dumb ... . Now get the hell down
the cellar ... you can be boss
down there ... and I’m boss up
here ... and you ain’t takin’
none of this food, and you ain’t
takin’ nothin’.
TOM
Harry ... we can get food to
you ... if you want to stay down
there ... and ...
HARRY
You bastards!
HELEN
(From the cellar)
Harry ... Harry!
Harry looks toward the cellar door, looks back at the two
men, then quickly moves toward the door.
HARRY
You know I won’t open the door
again. I mean it.
TOM
We can fix this up here. With
your help, we could ...
HARRY
Yeah ... . well I think you’re
both nuts ... with my help!
56.
TRUCKDRIVER
(To Tom)
Let him go, man, his mind is made
up, now let him go.
Harry looks for a moment, then lunges for the cellar door,
opens it, and slams it behind him ... sounds of his
footsteps going down the steps ... .
TOM
(Rushes to the door)
Harry, we’d be better off up here!
The truck-driver ties the broken fringe back onto the
rifle, then begins to reload the gun, replacing the spent
shells.
TOM
(Shouting through the door)
Harry, if we stick together, man,
we can fix it up real good ...
There are places we can run to up
here ...
We hear sounds of Harry boarding up the door. The truckdriver
straps the gun to his shoulder again, then turns and
moves toward the upstairs. In passing, his glance falls on
Barbara. He steps backward off the stairs and looks at
her. The radio has taken up again with the monotonous
recorded message.
TOM
Harry ... we’d be better off if
all three of us was workin’
together ...
(Sounds of Harry’s
barricading)
TOM
We’ll let you have food when you
need it ...
(he glances warily at the
truck-driver, half-expecting
reprisal for this)
... and if we knock those things
might be chasin’ us and you can
let us in ...
Barricading sounds stop. Footsteps can be heard as Harry
walks down the cellar steps. Tom listens awhile, then
retreats, disappointed and worried about the lack of
Harry’s efforts in the defensive measures that must lie
ahead.
57.
The truck-driver is with Barbara, stooping beside her
chair; she stares into an unseeing void. The big man
softens at seeing her.
TRUCKDRIVER
Hey ... hey, honey.
He brushes her hair back from her eyes. Tears well up and
it almost seems as though she might acknowledge his
tenderness, but she does not. The man feels very
sorrowful, almost as he would feel for his child when it
was sick. He massages his forehead and eyes, tired from
fear and exertion of the past hours. He bends to cover
the girl with a coat that he had brought from the den, then
steps away and feeds the fire, and stirs it to keep the
blaze good and warm, the primary concern in this effort is
for the girl. Behind him, tom walks up, truck-driver
senses his presence ...
TRUCKDRIVER
He’s wrong, man.
Tom is silent.
TRUCKDRIVER
I ain’t boxin’ myself in down
there no how.
(he finishes with the fire
and rises to go upstairs, to
continue his work there)
We might be here several days ...
we’ll get it fixed up ... he’ll
come up ... He ain’t gonna stay
down there very long ... he’ll
wanta see what’s goin’ on ... or
maybe if we get a chance to get
out ... he’ll come up.
He turns and goes up the
stairs ...
The cellar, with its stark gray
walls and dusty clutter, seems
cold and damp. Cardboard cartons
tied with cord and a hanging grid
of pipe-work all look dirty in the
subdued light of bare light
bulbs. The cartons take up must
of the space; they vary in size
from grocery boxes with faded
brand names to large packing
crates that might have contained
furniture. The washing machine,
an old roller type, sits off in a
corner of the cellar near a
makeshift shower stall.
(MORE)
58.
TRUCKDRIVER
Lines for drying clothes are
strung over the pipe-work so low
that Harry has to duck under them
as he walks from the stairs to the
other side of the confining
quarters. There are stationary
tubs and an old metallic cabinet
against one of the walls. Harry’s
wife, Helen, is at the faucet over
the tubs, wetting a cloth with
cold water. She looks up as Harry
enters, but is more interested in
what she is doing at the moment.
She wrings out the cloth and takes
it to where a young boy, their
son, lies motionlessly atop a
homemade worktable. On a pegboard
above the table are hanging
tools and cables, and built into
the table itself are drawers that
probably contain smaller tools,
screws and bolts, washers, etc.
The woman moves a little stiffly
in the coolness of the cellar.
She is wearing a dress and
sweater, while a warmer coat is
spread on the table under the boy,
its sides flopped up and over him,
covering his legs and chest. The
woman bends over her son and wipes
his head with the cool cloth.
Harry quietly walks up behind her. She concentrates on
caring for the boy and pulls the coat more securely around
him.
HELEN
(Not looking up)
He has a bad fever.
HARRY
There’s two more people upstairs.
HELEN
(Still primarily concerned
with the boy’s comfort)
Two?
59.
HARRY
Yeah ...
(a long pause, then halfdefensively)
I wasn’t about to take any
unnecessary chances.
Helen is silent.
HARRY
How did we know what was going on
up there?
Harry nervously reaches to his breast pocket for a
cigarette. He produces an empty pack and, seeing that it
is empty, crumples it in his hand and pitches it to the
floor. He steps over to the worktable where there is
another pack, snatches it up, and it too is empty. With
the same crumpling action, he discards this pack, violently
this time, the action spinning him into a position facing
his wife and boy. She continues to quietly swab the boy’s
forehead. Harry stares at them for a moment.
HARRY
Does he seem to be all right?
Helen is silent. The boy is motionless. He is sweating to
the point where beads of sweat are formed all over his
face. Harry waits and, seeing no answer forthcoming,
changes the subject.
HARRY
They’re all staying upstairs ... .
Idiots! We should stick
together ... it’s safest down
here ... ..
He goes to his wife’s purse and rummages through it’s
contents. He pulls out a pack of cigarettes, rips the pack
open, and fumbles for a cigarette. He lights it and drags
in the first puff deeply. It makes him cough slightly.
HARRY
They don’t stand a chance up
there ... . they can’t hold those
things off forever ... There’s
too many ways they can get into
the house up there ...
Helen remains silent. On the floor, next to the workbench,
is a small transistor radio. Harry’s glance falls on it
and he stabs at it, scoops it up and clicks it on.
60.
HARRY
They had a radio on upstairs ...
must’ve been civil defense or ...
I think it’s not just us, this
thing is happening all over.
The radio picks up nothing but static. Harry plays with the
tuning dial, listening anxiously, but across the receiving
band the transistor Just hisses. Harry holds the radio up
and turns it into various positions, trying it for
reception, spinning the tuner as he goes. Still nothing
but hiss. He walks around the room with still no results.
HARRY
This damned thing ...
Still just static.
Helen stops wiping the boy’s forehead and neatly folds the
cloth, and drapes it over her son’s brow. She gently
places her hand on the boy’s chest and looks over toward
her husband. He moves impatiently around the cellar, his
cigarette dangling from his lip, waving the little radio
around in the air. The radio just emits static at varying
levels.
HELEN
Harry ...
He continues his fidgeting with the radio. He goes near
the walls and stairs, holding it high and still spinning
the dial.
HELEN
Harry ... that thing can’t pick
up anything in this stinking
dungeon!
Her rising tone of voice stops him; he turns and looks at
her. About to cry, she brings her hands to her face. She
bites her lip, and just stares at the floor. Looking at
her, Harry lets his anger take hold of him, but he cannot
think of words. His face twitches, his emotion searching
for some vehicle or expression, until he pivots violently
and flings the radio across the room.
61.
HARRY
(Shouting)
I hate you ... right? I hate the
kid? I wanna see you die here,
right? In this stinking place. my
god, Helen, do you realize what’s
happening? Those things are all
over the place ... they’ll kill
us all ... I enjoy watching my kid
suffer like this? I enjoy seeing
all this happen?
Helen’s head jerks toward him. She looks at him with what
is almost vengeance.
HELEN
He needs help ... he needs a
doctor ... he’s ... he’s ...
gonna maybe die here ... We have
to get out of here, Harry. we
have to.
HARRY
Oh, yeah ... let’s just walk
out. We can pack up right now and
get ready to go, and i’ll just say
to those things, `Excuse me.. my
wife and kid are uncomfortable
here ... we’re going into town.’
For god’s sake ... there’s maybe
twenty of those things out there.
and there’s more every
minute ... .
HELEN
There’s people upstairs. We
should stick together you said.
Are we fighting with them?
Upstairs, downstairs ... what’s
the difference?
Maybe they can help us. Let’s get
out of here ... . let’s go
upstairs ... let’s do
something ... . let’s get out of
here ...
A pounding sound interrupts her. They listen. The sound
is coming from the door, at the top of the stairs.
TOM
HARRY!
(From outside the door)
62.
More pounding. Harry just stares up at the door, and does
not answer the call. Tears well in Helen’s eyes. More
pounding. Helen looks at Harry. When he does not respond,
she gets up and goes for the stairs.
HELEN
Yes ... yes, Tom!
Harry, running after her, grabs her shoulders from behind
and stops her.
HELEN
Harry ... Harry ... it’s Tom
Ryan.
TOM
(Through the door)
Harry ... we got food, and some
medicine and things from up
here ...
Harry stares up at the door speechlessly.
TOM
There’s gonna be a thing on the
radio ... in ten minutes,
Harry ... a civil defense
thing ... . to tell us what to do.
HELEN
(Looking up at the door,
shouts)
WE’RE COMING UP! WE’LL BE UP IN A
MINUTE!
HARRY
You’re out of your mind, Helen.
All it takes is a minute ...
those things get in up there and
it’s too late to change your
mind ... Don’t you see that?
Can’t you see that we’re safe as
long as we keep that door sealed
up?
HELEN
I don’t give a damn! I don’t
care, Harry ... I don’t care
anymore... I want to get out of
here ... go upstairs ... see if
someone will help us ... maybe
Karen will be okay ...
63.
Her shouting stops and she takes control of herself. She
steps toward Harry and speaks in a calmer tone, almost
pleading.
HELEN
Harry ... please ... for just a
minute ... . we’ll go up and see
what’s up there ... We’ll hear
the radio, and maybe we can figure
some way to get out of here ...
maybe with all of us we can make
it, Harry.
Harry, his adamancy weakening somewhat, takes a cigarette
form his mouth, exhaling the last puff, and drops it to the
floor. He rubs it out with his foot. The smoke comes in
a long stream through his pursed lips.
Startlingly, Tom’s voice penetrates again.
TOM
Harry! ... . Hey, Harry! ... Ben
found a television upstairs! Come
on up ... we’ll see the civil
defense broadcast on tv ...
HELEN
(Soothingly, to Harry, her
tone in attempt to relieve
the
onus Harry must feel in going
against his original decision)
Come on ... let’s go up ...
there’ll be something on tv that
tells us what to do. you can tell
them I wanted to come up ... .
HARRY
(Acquiescing, but with stolid
misgivings, his eyes fasten
on her; he pronounces his
words with what is almost
menace)
All right ... this is your
decision ... we’ll go up ... but
don’t blame me if we all get
killed ...
64.
Her eyes fall away from his, and she leads as they go up
the stairs. The cellar door swings open. Helen and Harry
step into the hallway. Faltering, they peer through the
entranceway into the living-room. Harry, standing behind
his wife, is hostile. Partially due to anger with himself
because he has reneged on his decision about the cellar.
Helen, too, is over-wrought, due to the emotional effect of
the recent argument and to the fact that she is about to
meet strange people in an anxious circumstance.
But only Tom and Barbara are in the living-room, and
Barbara, overcome with nervous exhaustion, is sleeping
fitfully on the couch.
TOM
We can see the broadcast, I
think ... if the tv works. I
have to go help ben.
Helen has gone immediately to Barbara, looks down at her
sympathetically, brushes back her hair and pulls the
overcoat around her shoulders.
HELEN
Poor thing ... she must have been
through a lot.
Harry, during these moments, has been flitting anxiously
all over the house ... from door to window to kitchen to
living-room ... . checking out the actual degree of
security and worrying about imminence of attack at any
second.
TOM
(To Helen)
I think her brother was killed out
there.
BEN
(Yelling somewhat peeved,
from upstairs)
Tom ... hey, Tom! Are you gonna
give me a hand with this thing?
Tom startles, aware of his procrastination, and bolts for
the upstairs to help Ben. Harry, pausing momentarily in
his anxiety comes over to where his wife is looking after
Barbara.
HELEN
Her brother was killed ...
65.
HARRY
This place is ridiculous. there’s
a million weak spots up here.
(We hear sounds from upstairs of Tom and Ben struggling
with the television set. They are making their way down
the steps)
HELEN
I don’t care ... there’s people
up here. why don’t you do
something to help somebody?
Harry, not really hearing her, is staring once more into
the gloom outside.
HARRY
I can’t see a damn thing out
there! there could be fifty
million of those things, I can’t
see a thing that’s how much good
these windows do us ...
The truck-driver, who with Tom has reached the landing with
the heavy television set, has heard the last part of
Harry’s remark. He glowers even as he moves with his end
of the burden, but says nothing, as he and Tom gingerly
deposit the TV in the center of the room. They hunt for an
outlet, find it, then slide and walk the set until the cord
is close enough to be plugged in. Ben kneels behind the set
to plug in the cord.
HARRY
Wake that girl up. if there’s
going to be a thing on the tube,
she might as well know where she
stands. i don’t wand anybody’s
life on my hands.
HELEN
Harry! ... stop acting like a
child!
66.
BEN
(On his feet, finished with
plugging in the set)
I don’t want to hear anymore from
you, mister. if you stay up here,
you’ll take your orders from
me ... and that includes leaving
that girl alone. she needs
rest ... she’s just about out of
her head as it is now ... now
we’re just going to let her sleep
it off. and nobody’s going to
touch her unless i say so ...
Ben stares Harry down for at least a moment, to ascertain
that he is at least temporarily silenced, then his hand
plunges immediately to the television set. He snaps it on,
the occupants of the room jockey for vantage points, and
there are a baited few seconds of dead silence as they all
wait to see if the set will actually warm up. All eyes are
on the tube. A hiss begins, increases in volume, Ben
cranks the volume all the way. A glowing band appears and
spreads, filling the screen.
HELEN
It’s on.. it’s on!
There are murmurs of excitement and anticipation. But the
tube only shows nothing. No picture, no sound. Just the
glow and hiss of the tube. Ben’s hand races the tuning
dial through the clicks of the various stations.
HARRY
Play with the rabbit-ears ... we
should be able to get something.
Ben fusses with horizontal and vertical, with brightness
and contrast. On one station, he finally gets sound. He
adjusts the volume, the picture tumbles, he plays with it
and finally brings it in. Full-Screen is a commentator, in
the middle of a news report ...
(The people in the room settle back to listen.)
TV COMMENTATOR
... assign little credibility to
the theory that this onslaught is
a product of mass hysteria.
Authorities advise utmost caution
until the menace can be brought
under absolute control. Eyewitness
accounts have been investigated
and documented.

Corpses of vanquished aggressors
are presently being examined by
medical pathologists, but autopsy
efforts have been hampered by the
mutilated condition of these
corpses. Security measures
instituted in metropolitan areas
include enforced curfews and
safety patrols by armed
personnel. Citizens are urged to
remain in their homes. Those who
ignore this warning expose
themselves to intense danger from
the aggressors themselves, and
from armed citizenry ... whose
impulse may be to shoot first and
ask questions later.
(During the telecast, there are mixed feelings and
reactions, but these responses are sporadic and
infrequent. Predominant mood of all involved is to learn
as much as possible from the telecast.)
TV COMMENTATOR
Rural or otherwise-isolated
dwellings have most frequently
been the objective of frenzied,
concerted attack. isolated
families are in extreme
danger. Escape attempts should be
made in heavily-armed groups, and
by motor vehicle if possible.
appraise your situation carefully
before deciding upon an escape
tactic. Fire is and effective
weapon. these beings are highly
flammable. Escape groups should
strike out for the nearest urban
community. Manned defense outpost
have been established on major
arteries leading into all
communities.
These outposts are equipped to
defend refugees and to offer
medical and surgical
assistance. Police and vigilante
groups are in the process of
combing remote areas in search and
destroy missions against all
aggressors. These patrols are
attempting to evacuate isolated
families.

68.
TV COMMENTATOR
But rescue efforts are proceeding
slowly, due to the increased
danger of nightfall and the sheer
enormity of the task. rescue, for
those in isolated circumstances,
is highly undependable. you should
not wait for a rescue party unless
there is no possibility of
escape. If you are few against
many, you will almost certainly be
overcome. The aggressors are
irrational and demented. their
sole urge is the quest for human
flesh. Sheriff Conan W.
McClelland, of the county
department of public protection,
was interviewed minutes after he
and his vigilante patrol had
vanquished several of the
aggressors. we bring you now the
results of that interview.
(Fade and segue to video-tape interview)
Open on wide shot. A night scene. Dense woods. Posted
guards maintain the periphery of a small clearing.
Sporadic gunfire can be heard in the distance. Some of the
men smoke, some talk in groups. The area is illumined by a
large bonfire. Sheriff McClelland is the focal figure,
MCU, so that as he talks we catch glimpses of activity in
the background. He is shouting commands, supervising
defense measures and the burning of the bodies, at the same
time trying to answer reporter’s questions. We cut or zoom
closer. McClelland is pacing around, not straying too far,
because a lavaliere microphone is hanging on a cord around
his neck. The crackle of the bonfire, the shouts and the
bustle of activity can be constantly heard behind his
commentary. As he talks, he frequently turns away, his
primary concern being his efforts in dealing with the
aggressors and controlling his search party.
MCCLELLAND
(Taking up with a previouslyasked
question) ... yeah ... well, this is rough
country for an evening hike ...
(he smiles)
... but things ain’t going too
badly. the men are taking it
pretty well. we killed nineteen
of ‘em today, right around this
general area. these last three we
found trying to claw their way
into an abandoned mine shed ...
nobody in there.. but these things
just pounding and clawing, trying
to bust their way in ...
(MORE)
69.
MCCLELLAND
it’s funny in a way ... must’ve
thought there was people in
there ... we heard the racket and
came and blasted them down ...
REPORTER
What’s your opinion, then? can we
defeat these things?
MCCLELLAND
There ain’t no problem.. only
problem is whether we can get to
‘em before they kill off all these
people. but me and my men can
handle ‘em okay ... we ain’t lost
nobody, or suffered any
casualties. all you gotta do is
shoot for the eyes. you can tell
anybody out there ... all you
gotta do is draw a sharp bead and
shoot for the eyes ... or beat
‘em down ‘n lop their heads
off ... .
REPORTER
Then I’d have a decent chance ...
even if I was surrounded by two or
three of them?
MCCLELLAND
If you had yourself a club ... or
a good torch.. you could hold ‘em
off or burn ‘em to death. they
catch fire like nothin’ ... go up
like wax paper ... but the best
thing is to shoot for the
eyes ... don’t wait for us to
rescue you ... ’cause if they get
you too far outnumbered you’ve had
it ... We’re doin’ our best.. but
we only got so many men and a
whole lot of open country to
comb ... .
REPORTER
But you think you can bring things
under control?
70.
MCCLELLAND
We got things in our favor now.
It’s only a question of time. We
ain’t for certain how many there
are of them things ... . but we
know that when we find ‘em we’re
able to kill ‘em. so it’s a matter
of time ... they’re weak ... but
there’s pretty many of ‘em ...
don’t wait for no rescue party.
arm yourself to the teeth, get
together in a group, and try and
make it to a rescue station ...
that’s the best way ... but if
you’re alone you got to set stock
still and wait for help ... . and
we’ll try like hell to get there
before they do ... .
(Scene fades, segues back to live announcer)
MCCLELLAND
(Emphasizing his point, even
as scene fades out)
tell ‘em to shoot for the
eyes ... that’ll stop these
bojobbers!
COMMENTATOR
You have heard Sheriff Conan W.
McClelland, for the county
department of public protection.
this is your civil defense
emergency network, with reports
every hour on the hour for the
duration of this emergency.
Remain in your homes. Keep all
doors and windows locked. Do not
under any circ ...
(Ben reaches over and clicks off the television)
TOM
Why’d you click it off for?
BEN
The man said they only come on
every hour ... . we heard all we
need to know. We gotta get out of
here.
71.
HELEN
he said the rescue stations have
doctors and medical supplies ...
If we could get there, they could
help Karen.
HARRY
(Scoffing)
How’re we gonna bust outta here?
we got a sick kid, two women ...
one of ‘em outta her head and
three men. And there’s a million
of
them things outside.
TOM
Willard should have a checkpoint
there ... about seventeen miles
from here.
BEN
(Excited)
You from here ... you know this
area?
TOM
Yeah ... I was workin’ in the
cemetery across the road ... I’m
the caretaker ... two of them
things attacked me and i
hightailed it over here ... found
everybody wiped out ... not too
long after, these other people
fought their way in here ... I was
scared but I opened the basement
door and let them in.
(Unbeknownst to everybody else, Barbara has been sitting
up, listening; now she speaks, startling them and gathering
their attention. She has come down from her hysteria, but
is very weak.)
BARBARA
You work in the cemetery? ... My
brother is over there.
HELEN
You poor thing ... (Rushes to
Barbara, comforting) My boy is
hurt too. we have to get to a
rescue station ... the television
told us ... we have to try and
escape.
72.
HARRY
Well, I think we ought to stick
right here ... and wait for a
rescue party. He said if you’re
few against many you don’t have a
chance ... We can’t tramp
seventeen miles through those
things ... .
BEN
We ain’t got to tramp. My truck’s
right outside the door.
This stops Harry. There is a moment of silence.
BEN ... But i’m just about out of
gas ... There’s a pump near the
shed outside, but it’s locked.
TOM
(Becoming more enthused,
seeing possibilities)
The key ought to be around
somewhere ... . there’s a big keyring
in the basement ... .
HARRY
(Jumps up)
I’m gonna go look ... the keys
are labeled
(He bolts for the cellar)
BEN
Is there a fruit-cellar?
HARRY
Yeah ... why?
BEN
We’re gonna need lots of jars ...
We can make molotov cocktails ...
scare those things back ... then
fight our way to the pump and gas
up the truck.
TOM
We’re gonna need kerosene.
There’s a jug of that in the
basement too.
HELEN
Barbara and i can help. We can
rip up sheets and things.
73.
HARRY
(Clomps up from the cellar)
Here’s the key-ring. The pump key
is marked with a piece of tape.
BEN
Good ... that settles that
question ... but we should take a
crowbar anyway ... in case the
key doesn’t work. The crowbar can
double as a weapon for whoever
goes with me. But I don’t want to
get all the way out there and find
out the pump won’t open ... .
TOM
I’ll go ... you and me can fight
our way to the pump ... The women
can stay in the cellar and take
care of the kid. We should have a stretcher ... . bBarbara and
Helen can do that ...
BEN
Harry, you’re gonna have to guard
the upstairs. Once we inboard the
door, those things can get in here
easy. But me and tom have to get
in, too, after we get back here
with the truck. You’ve got to
guard the door, and unlock it for
us. Then we’ll board it up as fast
as we can, ‘cause those things are
gonna come fast on our heels ...
If we don’t get back, well then
you’ll be able to see from
upstairs, and you can barricade
the door again and go to the
basement ... You can sit down
there and wait for a rescue party.
HARRY
I want the gun, then. it’s the
best thing for me to use. You’re
not going to have time to stop and
aim.
BEN
(Adamantly)
I’m keeping this gun ... nobody
else lays a hand on it ... I found
it and it’s mine.
74.
HARRY
You don’t care what happens to
us ... . How do we know you and
Tom won’t just take the truck and
cut out?
BEN
(Glowering, with controlled
anger)
That’s the chance you have to
take. If we cut out, you’ll have
your goddamn basement. Like
you’ve been crying about all
along.
HELEN
We’re going to die here ... if we
don’t all work together.
BARBARA
My brother’s out there ... maybe
we can get him and bring him
back. He’s just wounded ...
he’ll be okay ...
HELEN
(Understanding)
That’s okay, honey ... . we’ll be
all right ... maybe your brother
will be, too ...
BEN
Let’s get busy. we’ve got a lot
to do, if we’re gonna bust out of
here.
He is on his feet, taking command. We fade out of the
scene ... .
... fade into new scene, completion of escape
preparations. Tom is pouring kerosene into fruit jars,
Helen is dipping twisted rag fuses in kerosene in the
bottom of a dish. Barbara comes from the kitchen with more
jars, drying them on the outside and putting them on the
table. She and Helen begin working the kerosene soaked
fuses through holes which Tom has cut in the jar lids.
Between them is a crude stretcher, made of broomsticks and
torn sheets, this presumable for the wounded girl, Karen.
The television is off, but the radio drones lowly,
repeating the recorded message ... The radio is on as a
monitor only, that they may work and still keep up with
news that my affect their situation.
75.
BARBARA
I don’t know what to think about
my brother ... We have to get out
of here ... maybe we’ll find him
in Willard ... maybe he was able
to crawl to the car ... and get
away ... .
HELEN
We have to think of ourselves
now ... it’s hard for you ... but
it’s all we can do ... my girl is
getting worse too ... I have to
get her to a doctor ...
HARRY
(Coming over, checking the
stretcher, making sure
the makeshift straps will hold)
Broomsticks and belt-buckles ...
and old sheets, it seems to hold
okay ... I always hated the boy
scouts ...
TOM
It’ll be okay ... is there
anything open upstairs?
HARRY
Some windows in the rooms. ben is
unfastening the doors now.
TOM
We’ll throw the cocktails from
upstairs ... just splash the
whole area with them ... That
should keep most of them away ...
while we make a break for the
truck.
HELEN
We’re ready ... here comes Ben
now ...
(Hears him coming down the
stairs)
Ben, the gun strapped around his back, is carrying a
crowbar and claw-hammer. He walks around checking
preparations, smiles at Barbara, glad to see she’s a little
better.
76.
BEN
Things are ready up there. Now me
and tom will un-board the front
door ... Harry, you take the two
women upstairs. Carry the molotov
cocktails with you ... Soon as
the door’s unbarred, we can throw
those things all over the
place ... Make sure they catch
fire good ... then the women bust
down here and get in the cellar.
don’t forget the stretcher ...
When we hear your footsteps on the
stairs, me and tom’ll be gone.
It’ll be up to you, Harry ...
you’ve gotta watch this door ...
Got yourself a good length of
pipe?
HARRY
I have a pitchfork.
BEN
Good ... okay.
Tom and Ben go over to the door. The others gather fruitjars,
etc., and sneak quietly to the un-boarded room
upstairs. Tom and Ben are left alone. Tom is soaking a
table-leg in kerosene, ready to light it for use as a
torch. They fall to work on the door ... the painstaking
work of quietly undoing the barricade. They do not want to
give alarm to the lurking things outside. With crowbar and
claw-hammer, very carefully, both men working on each
separate piece of lumber, they undo the barricade. Each
nail-creak is a menace. They are alert to the constant
danger.
They finish, and watch, posting themselves anxiously by the
door. Shadowy figures lurk in the dark outside. Tom and
Ben wait for the Molotov shower to begin ...
A cry is heard, a window flies open, the first fiery blaze
light in the yard. More follow, some aimed for the
creatures themselves. One of two catch fire.. the others
start to back away ... the entire field is lit up ...
bombs shower from upstairs.
HARRY
(Shouting, from upstairs,
slamming the door to the
room he was in)
That’s all, Ben ... run for it!
77.
His voice echoes, as Tom and Ben burst into the yard. They
are armed with torches, and with the gun. They leap into
the truck. Tom plunges a torch into the chest of an
attacker, who immediately catches fire and goes down n a
blaze, clutching the torch ...
The truck starts up, and careens, in a u-turn for the old
shed. Attackers fall away as it starts out. Ben aims,
fires several shots, most miss as the truck jounces toward
the gas pump across the yard. But one creature goes down,
at the front of the gas pump near the old shed. Tom and
Ben leap out. Attackers are starting to make their way to
them from across the yard. Tom fumbles with the key to the
locked pump. Ben shoves him back, hurriedly aims the gun,
the gun fires, blowing the lock to pieces ... . Gas spurts
all over the place ... creatures advance ... gas still
spurting, Tom crams the nozzle into the mouth of the gas
tank in the back of the truck. Ben crouches and level off
with his weapon ... an approaching attacker goes down ...
but more are coming on ... Tom’s torch has inadvertently
set fire to the doused truck ... the flames begin to lick
and spread ... the attackers gather in force.. ever
closer ... Tom leaps into the flaming truck, it skids and
lurches across the yard ... Ben shouts, to no avail ...
the flaming truck speeds away, driven by the panicked
Tom ... several of the things are upon Ben ... he
thrashes and pounds them with torch and gun ... ignoring
Tom, he has to try and fight his way back to the
house ... .
From inside the house, the panicked and cowardly Harry, has
seen only pieces of the action. He has been darting back
and forth from door to window, trying to see what has been
happening outside ... from his viewpoint, the escape
attempt has met with total doom. He has seen the truck
catch fire, driven away by Tom. Ben appears to be
overwhelmed.
Harry runs again to the door. He sees the truck,
completely in flames, speeding away from the house, toward
a small rise. Back to the kitchen window ... . Ben is
about to be overcome ... things all around him ...
Harry does not see, as Tom jumps from the burning truck to
be seized by attacking ghouls. The truck continues
unmanned over the far rise ... and explodes violently..
the noise and flame shattering the night ... Several
ghouls are at the front door, trying to beat their way into
the house. From inside, Harry is in complete terror. He
cannot hold out ... all is lost ... he panics and bolts
for the cellar ...
78.
But Ben has slugged his way through the attackers on the
porch ... he is pounding for admission at the front door.
He turns, and with a powerful lunge, kicks the last
attacker off the porch. On the rebound, he plows his
shoulder against the door. It crashes open, the lock
broken, and Ben bursts through in time to catch Harry at
the cellar door ... but there is no time. Ben frantically
turns to re-boarding the door. His eyes meet Harry’s for
an instant ... then they both fall to work. They board
up the door ... they are temporarily safe ... they turn
and look at each other, sweat streaming from each
face ... .. Harry knows what is coming.
Ben’s fist crashes against Harry’s face ... he is driven
back, one punch following another, until Ben corners him,
clenching his lapels, against the wall ... Ben’s words
spit out, each work punctuated by an additional slam of
Harry against the wall ... .
BEN
You ... rotten ... next..
time ... you try something ...
like that.. I’ll kill you ...
Ben slams him one final time, and he slides down the wall,
crumples on the floor. His face is swollen, he is streaming
blood. Ben is already at the cellar door ...
BEN
(Pounding)
Come on up! it’s us ... it's all
over ... Tom is dead!
Fade out.
The survivors are gathered in the living-room. Barbara and
Helen are slumped on the sofa. Overwhelming mood of
hopelessness and despair. Harry sulks in a corner, his
head slung back, his face swollen, he is holding an icepack
against his eye. His good eye follows Ben, who is
pacing about the room, when Ben’s pacing takes him to the
kitchen, or to some area out of Harry’s sight, the good eye
nervously relaxes. Ben’s movements make virtually the only
sound, he is checking the defenses, by force of old habit
rather than hope. The rifle is slung on his back. For a
long time, we well on the scene, on the absolute
dejectedness of the prisoners within the barricaded
house ... Ben paces from door to kitchen to window, he
starts to go upstairs, stops, checks himself, goes to the
door again ... he looks at his watch ...
79.
BEN
Ten minutes to three ... there’ll
be another broadcast in ten
minutes ... .
Nobody says anything. Ben pulls back the curtain, his eyes
grow suddenly wide, but he watches for a long moment.
(We see his view of the outside)
There are many ghouls, lurking in the shadows of the
hanging trees. Some of the things are in the open, much
nearer to the house than they dared come before. Remains
of charred bodies are dimly apparent in various parts of
the lawn. But Ben’s eyes are fastened on a more grisly
scene at the edge of the lawn, in the moonlight, several
ghouls are devouring what was once Tom ... . They rip and
tear into aspects of his body ... .. ghoulish teeth ...
biting into Tom’s arms and hands ... Ben stares ...
fascinated ... and repulsed ...
With a convulsive movement his fingers release the curtain;
he turns, shaken, and faces the others ... beads of
perspiration dripping from his forehead.
BEN
Don’t ... don’t anyone of you
look out there... You won’t like
what you see ...
Harry’s good eye fastens on Ben, watches him, satisfies and
contemptuous to see the big man weaken. Ben moves for the
television, clicks it on. Barbara’s scream pierces the
room. Ben leaps back from the television ... . She is on
her feet, screaming, uncontrollably.
BARBARA
We’ll never get out of here ...
none of us! ... we’ll never get
out of her alive! Johneee!
Johneee! ... oh! ... oh! ...
god ... none of us ... none of
us ... help ... oh god ...
god!
Before anyone can move to her, she chokes up as suddenly as
she began, and slumps, sobbing violently, to the couch.
Her face buried in her hands. Helen tries to soothe her,
but great sobs come wracking from deep within ... she
grows gradually quiet, the sobs diminish, but she remains
slumped on the couch, her face covered with her hands.
Helen covers her with the overcoat but the action seems
futile, Barbara makes no movement whatsoever.
80.
Ben allows himself to sink very slowly into a chair in
front of the TV. Harry’s good eye goes from Barbara to
Ben. His eye fastens on the gun, which Ben lowers butt
first to the floor and leans across his legs. Ben threads
his arm through the fringed sling, and maintains his grip
on the fore-piece. Harry watches.
HELEN
(Getting up, announces)
I’m going to the cellar to take
care of Karen.
(She bends over, places her
hand on Barbara)
Come on honey ... come and talk
to me ... it’ll make you feel
better ... .
But Barbara makes no response. Helen turns and starts for
the cellar door, she has to squeeze past Harry’s chair.
Furtively, his eye on Ben, Harry touches her and pulls her
towards him. She, too, watches Ben, she knows something is
up, Ben remains transfixed before the TV, he is lost in
thought, his mind drifts somewhere ... There is nothing
on the screen just a dull glow and low hiss over scanning
lines and static. He has turned the set on too early.
HARRY
(Whispering, cautiously and
quickly to Helen)
I’ve got to get that gun ... we
can go to the cellar ... You have
to help me ... .
He has let the ice-pack come away from his eye. We see its
swollen, blackened condition and the desperation n his
face. Ben still gazes at the TV. Worried about the
possibility that Ben might catch them in the act, and not
really sympathizing with Harry, Helen pulls away, but she
leans her face to Harry’s and whispers quickly ... .
HELEN
I’m not going to help you ... .
haven’t you had enough ... he’d
kill us both.
She goes to the cellar, and on the way has to pass behind
Ben’s chair, she hesitates, her eyes fall on the gun, the
sling is wound around Ben’s arm. We study her face, it is
not clear whether she would have taken it or not. But she
makes no attempt. She opens the door and goes down into
the cellar. Harry’s eye follows her as she leaves.
81.
As Helen reaches the bottom of the cellar stairs, she looks
up, and her face shows startlement ... a shaken smile ...
her daughter is sitting up, propped on her elbows, on the
workbench table.
HELEN
Karen ...
She starts for her, but stops ... there is something
strange ... her face turns slowly toward her ... we see
the ghoulish look in her eye ... She is DEAD. She begins
to rise slowly, terrifyingly, her features grotesque ...
the coat that was her blanket begins to fall away ... her
eyes stare through Helen ... . And beyond her ... slowly,
agonizingly, she raises herself from the table ...
Helen, terrified, begins to back away, across the cellar,
her hand falls on a knife, her child creeps toward her ...
She moves a large packing crate, trying to block her
path ... trying to stave the confrontation... but she is
too late ... she springs. It appears as though the knife
will be driven into her breast.
But, on the spring, we cut to the upstairs ... where,
simultaneously, a scream pierces the room. An assault has
begun, the things are beginning to break into the house.
They have gotten into the den ... and are hammering at the
barricaded door ... the walls are starting to come
apart ...
Ben is on his feet, trying to reinforce the barricades;
with hammer and crowbar, he works furiously ...
BEN
Harry! Harry! ... . give me a
hand over here!
Harry comes over, behind Ben, and instead of helping, rips
the gun from Ben’s back. Holding the gun on Ben, Harry
backs toward the cellar. Ben turns around, panicked, the
things are breaking into the house...
BEN
What are you up to man? We’ve got
to keep those things out!
HARRY
(Backing away)
Now we’ll see who’s going to shoot
who ... I’m going to the
cellar ... and you can rot up
here ... you crazy bastard ...
82.
His hand goes behind him to the cellar door ... but at
that moment the ghoulish Karen leaps upon him with great
thud ... Karen is at Harry’s throat. Ben is able to grab
the gun ... he levels off, trying to hit the kid ... but
a sudden wrench of the two struggling bodies ... and Ben
misses ... Harry screams ... a great clot of blood
appears at his chest ... clutching the wound, he begins to
go down... he falls through the entranceway to the cellar
stairs ... he reels, grabs the banister and begins to
descend ... . We see his view as he falls ...
reeling ... head-first down the stairs ... . Ben ...
meantime ... has flung the kid, Karen with one heave
against the wall ... but things have broken into the
house ... . Everywhere, the barricades are coming apart.
Barbara, with the hysteria of revenge, has flung herself
into the attack. She smashes a chair against one of the
aggressors... it goes down ... she smashes and smashes
it ... on the floor ... until there is nothing left of
the chair ... she comes up, still swinging, fighting with
Ben against the things that have come into the house.
It is quite apparent that they cannot hold out ... The
attack rages ... they are overwhelmed ... Ben grabs
Barbara and pulls her after him toward the cellar ... she
is lashing and swinging, beating at an attacker, even as he
drags her away ...
Ben flings open the door to the cellar ... and Helen is at
his throat ... he brings the gun up between their
struggling bodies until the muzzle is against her throat,
and squeezes the trigger ... .. she is blown halfway across
the room ... Ben and Barbara run down the stairs.
But Harry is sprawled in a pool of blood on the
floor ... . He is dead ... but beginning to rise ... Ben
pushed Barbara back ... she turns her head away ... Ben
raises the gun and we study this as three evenly-spaced
shots rip the room ... Ben is almost glad to kill
Harry ... he turns to Barbara, breathing hard... she
collapses against him, and begins to sob..
We hear faint pounding against the barricaded cellar door.
But it is holding. The creatures cannot get in ...
The screen is black. There are the sounds of birds ...
fainter sounds of dogs... human voices ... Fade up quickly
sunrise ... . The morning after the siege. The sky is
clear ... the rising sun is bright and warm ... there is
dew on the high grass of a meadow.
83.
Men with dogs and guns reworking their way up form the
woods that surround the meadow. We do not see the posse at
first, we merely hear their sounds ... shouts ... muffled
talk ... panting and straining of dogs against leashes ...
Sheriff McClelland’s posse. A few men, some with German
Shepherds on leashes, finally come up out of the woods and
onto the edge of the sunlit, dewy meadow. The wet grass
has dampened the boots and trouser-legs of the men.
McClelland is perhaps the third man up from the surrounding
thicket. He is a heavy man, mustached, breathing hard
because of his weight and the difficult job of leading the
posse through the night. He is armed with shotgun and
pistol, and a belt of ammunition strung over his shoulder.
He pauses, looks back into the woods, and mops perspiration
from his brow with a balled-up dirty handkerchief ...
MCCLELLAND
(Shouting back at the men
still working their way
toward the clearing)
Come on ... let’s step lively
now ... never can tell what we’ll
run into up here ... .
He accosts a man just climbing out of the woods. The man
wears an improvised sweat-band, carries a rifle and sidearm,
and has a walkie-talkie strapped on his back.
MCCLELLAND
You keeping in touch with the
squad-cars, George?
GEORGE
(Breathing hard, adjusting
the straps and burden across
his back)
Yeah ... they know where we are.
They should be intercepting us at
the house ...
MCCLELLAND
Good ... these men is dogtired
... they can use some rest
and hot coffee ... (He looks
back, to the men moving up from
behind. He shouts) Let’s push
along, now ... the squad cars’ll
be waiting with coffee and
sandwiches at the house ...
84.
The men push on across the field ... Inside the house,
Ben and Barbara have been dozing on chairs in the
basement. Ben wakes abruptly, thinking he has heard
something, but he isn’t sure ... . He sits up and listens
more closely ... from far off, there is the sound of a
dog. Ben listens for a long time, but hears nothing
more ...
Outside, the meadow has become the apron of a cemetery, the
one Barbara and John had come to with the flowers for their
father. The posse is advancing, threading its way among
the grave-markers. A man finds John’s skeletal remains near
the spot where he had fallen. Down a dirt road, and up a
short grade, is Barbara’s car, with the smashed window.
MCCLELLAND
Looks like this guy’s car ...
poor fellow ... never had a
chance ... .
The men pass through the cemetery, and over the wall, where
several squad cars are waiting on the road. There are also
one or two motorcycle patrolmen. One of the men dismounts
and hails McClelland.
PATROLMAN
Hi, Connie ... how’s things
goin’?
McClelland advances and shakes hands, stops awhile, mops
his brow again. The men begin to catch up and regroup.
The posse fills the bend in the narrow road.
MCCLELLAND
Sure glad to see you fellas,
Charlie ... we been at it all
night ... but I don’t want to
break ‘til we get to the house
over there ... We might be
lollygaggin’ around whole somebody
needs our help. we’ll see first,
then stop and get some
coffee ... ...
PATROLMAN
Anything you say,
Connie ... ... .
85.
... Inside the house, Ben has sneaked up to the top of the
cellar stairs. He listens there, very intently, not
wanting to open the door because creatures may still be in
the house. This time, for sure he hears gunshots ... and
mumbled sound of what must be the voices of approaching
men. There is even what sounds like a car engine ... Ben
bolts excitedly down the stairs.
Ben wakes the girl.
BEN
Barbara ... Barb ... here,
honey ... there’s men
outside ... I can hear them ...
they must be here to rescue
us ...
Outside, we see the cause of the gunshots. The posse is
flushing out ghouls from the pump-house and surrounding
area. The squad cars have driven up. The posse is
advancing across the lawn, guardedly, toward the partiallydestroyed
old farmhouse. The men crouch and sneak up
slowly, keeping their eyes fastened on the house.... A loud
sudden noise stops them ... they watch, stopped in their
tracks.
MCCLELLAND
Shoot for the eyes boys ... like
I told you before ... always aim
right for the eyes ... ... ..
Inside, ready to shoot or swing, Ben has slammed open the
cellar door. The force of his shoulder against the door
has carried him into the living-room ... . Nothing ...
Only the ramshackle and destruction form the recent siege.
He edges his way through the twisted wreckage and
overturned furniture toward the front door. There is no
light in the place. His hand finds what is left of the
curtain. He pulls it back and starts to peer out ...
but ... a shot right out ... . Ben reels, driven back ...
a circle of blood on his forehead, right between his
eyes ... .
Barbara’s scream is heard, from downstairs ...
simultaneously, McClelland shouts, his face flushed with
anger ... .
MCCLELLAND
Damn it, what’d you shoot for? I
told you to be careful ... there
might be people in there ... ..
86.
MAN WHO FIRED THE SHOT
Naw, this place is demolished,
there ain’t nobody in there ... ..
PATROLMAN
I’m sure I heard a girl’s
scream ... from the basement,
maybe ... .
Several men have advanced to kick in the front door. They
step back and peer cautiously inside. Their faces search
the room ... A patch of sunlight from the opened door
falls partially on Ben. He is dead. The men look down at
him, but step past him toward the cellar. They do not know
he was a man. From the cellar, they hear muffled sobs.
McClelland enters and begins to inch his way down the
stairs.
MCCLELLAND
Anybody down there?
(He shouts)
He draws his pistol, inches his way down the stairs. At
the bottom, he confronts Barbara, sitting wide-eyed in a
chair. McClelland raised his pistol, aims it for her
head ... but something stops him ... a tear in her
eye ... he lowers the weapon ... .
MCCLELLAND
It’s all right men ... come on
down ... it’s just a girl down
here!
He goes to Barbara, bends over her, looks at her, begins to
help her up ...
Closing scene, with titles and credits. Burning of bodies
in the yard of the old house. Perhaps the burning of the
house itself. In the background, against scene of
McClelland draping his jacket around Barbara and bringing
coffee to her lips, we see Ben’s body on a stretcher,
carried by two men ... they lift it into the rear of a
station-wagon ... .
MCCLELLAND
It’s too bad ... an accident ...
the only loss we had, the whole
night.

Reznov: The rotten cancer of the fascist Reich ravages Europe like a plague. Their relentless drive into our motherland steals the lives of men, women, and children alike. The arrogance of their leaders is matched only by the brutality of their soldiers. These are the darkest days of the Nazi occupation of Stalingrad.

Gameplay

The player is at a fountain in the Red Square, surrounded by dead and dying Red Army soldiers. Many Wehrmacht soldiers are seen outside of the square's walls. A Wehrmacht soldier stands up on a ledge and shoots two dying Red Army soldiers beside the player.

['Vendetta']

[Sept. 17, 1942]

[Stalingrad, Russia]

[Pvt. Petrenko]

[62nd Rifle Army]

When the Wehrmacht soldiers leave, the player must crawl forward, eventually meeting Reznov.

Reznov: Shhhhh... I need your help. Do what I say, and we can avenge this massacre.

The player and Reznov crawl towards an opening in the fountain.

Reznov: My injured hand means I can no longer aim. You will do it for me. Take my rifle and watch the road.

The player equips Reznov's Mosin-Nagant. Visible outside of the wall are many Wehrmacht soldiers, one of which is a General stepping out of a car.

Reznov: The mudak (asshole) in the car is General Heinrich Amsel architect of Stalingrad's misery. He is responsible for the cold blooded murder of men, women and children... Not just here, but throughout the motherland. For three days I have hunted him. For three days luck alone has saved his wretched life. Sniping your enemy is like hunting any other animal. Fire at the wrong moment and your chance will be forever lost. Patience. If we reveal our position to Amsel's men, this fountain will be our grave. Now, load your rifle, but hold your fire.

Amsel and an assistant have walked into a building and out of view. The player reloads their Mosin-Nagant.

Reznov: Wait until the bombers are directly overhead. The sound of their engines will drown out your shot.

The bombers will start flying overhead.

Reznov: Ready? SHOOT NOW!

If the player takes a while trying to snipe.

Reznov: Hurry! Before the bombers pass!

The player shoots the first enemy/enemies.

Reznov: Again!

The player shoots the remaining enemies.

Reznov: HA!

Another Wehrmacht soldier and a dog will come out by the destroyed tank.

Reznov: Straight ahead!

The player shoots the last one.

Reznov: WATCH OUT! THE DOG!

The player shoots the dog. Depending how good the player's aim was, Reznov will compliment the player:

Reznov: Excellent aim! You are a natural hunter.

If the player's aim was poor:

Reznov: Your reactions could be quicker, but the job is done.

After Reznov gives one of two compliments:

Reznov: Time to close in for the kill. This way.

The player and Reznov leave the Square. An armored patrol slowly makes its way towards the two, unaware of their existence.

Reznov: Chyort! (Damn!) Armored patrol... We must find another route to Amsel. Stay low, and follow me.

As the German patrol gets nearer.

Reznov: This way, before they discover their dead.

The player follows Reznov and enters a bar. If the player alerts the patrols:

Reznov: Chyort! Go down fighting!

If the player kills them all:

Reznov: A hunter has to stay hidden from his prey! You nearly ruined everything! Now move, quietly.

The men are in the bar.

Reznov: For days I have crept through shadows like a rat. This place once echoed with conversations of friends and lovers. No longer. Mark my words, Comrade... One day things will change. We will take the fight to their land... to their people... to their blood.

Reznov opens the the bar table, allowing entry.

Reznov: This way. Knowing the routines and movements of your prey tips the balance of a hunt. General Amsel is a creature of habit.

The player leaves the bar.

Reznov: He inspects each German garrison every day. We can use this building to flank his route.

A sniper shot from a building across the river almost kills Reznov.

Reznov: Sniper! Get inside now!

Reznov jumps through the building window, breaking its glass, and the player follows.

Reznov: Svoloch (Bastard) almost got me. We'll have to flush him out before we can move on. Follow me.

Reznov goes up the stairs, and the player follows.

Reznov: The shot came from across the river! There... The building with the banners! Now the game is cat and mouse. I will draw his fire. Keep your eyes open for the flash. Ready? Now!

The enemy sniper shoots. His muzzle flash should give the player his location if the player watched, though if the player didn't see, Reznov will sometimes tell the player his location.

If on Recruit or Regular difficulty:

Reznov: I'm going to draw his fire again, get ready to take him out...

On Recruit or Regular, Reznov will draw his fire and prompt the sniper to shoot again.

If on Hardened or Veteran difficulty:

Reznov: Chyort! (Damn!) Did you see him? He knows exactly where we are. I cannot risk it again... It's up to you to find him now. Stay out of the light. If he fires, move.

During the fight, if the sniper shoots at the player unsuccessfully, Reznov will say one of three tips.

Reznov: He has you beat. You need to take a different position!

Reznov: He's spotted you, get over to the window!

Reznov: Find another piece of cover!

If the player barely misses the sniper:

Reznov: You just grazed him!

If the player hits the sniper but does not kill him:

Reznov: You only wounded him!

Sometimes, the sniper will use a round, grey object (possibly his helmet) and bob it up and down under a window to try to fool the player. If the player fires at this object.

Reznov: It was just a decoy! Stay focused.

When the player kills the enemy sniper.

Reznov: Good hunting. The patrols will surely have heard those shots. We need to get moving.

The player follows Reznov through a door and down a set of stairs. A Wehrmacht patrol is visible through some windows, and Reznov hides behind a grandfather clock.

Reznov: Shhhh... German patrol. Let them pass...

A grandfather clock chimes, and a soldier walks over to a window of the building the player is in to inspect the sound and sees them.

Reznov: They have found us! We need to leave now! Hit the floor!!!

Reznov and the player go prone, and crawl their way through a hallway. Flamethrowers burst through the windows.

Reznov: They are trying to burn us out! Stay low, try not to breathe!

Reznov and the player stand up, and Reznov runs throughout the building looking for an exit. A book case falls and almost crushes the player had it not landed on a table.

Reznov: They are surrounding the building! We must hurry! Move! Upstairs! Quickly! Before we are burned alive!

The player follows Reznov up a flight of stairs to escape. While running, a flaming beam breaks apart and then it falls on top of Dimitri. The player tries to lift it up by himself but it burns his right hand. Reznov comes back and removes the beam.

Reznov: Here my friend... Take my hand. I need you alive. We need to find a way out!

Heavy machine gun fire tears through the wall.

Reznov: Armored car outside! Keep moving before it tears us apart!

Reznov and the player come to a giant hole in a wall of the building.

Reznov: Jump!... GO!

The player jumps out of the building, and then looks back up at the window they jumped from and see Reznov about to jump, but goes flying out the window because of an explosion. Reznov is lying injured on the ground as Wehrmacht soldiers come running down the street.

Wehrmacht soldier: Kommunisten! (Communists!)

Reznov reaches for his weapon, but a Wehrmacht soldier kicks it out of his hand.

Wehrmacht soldier: Her mit dem Flammenwerfer, verbrennt diese Russenschweine! (Bring on the flamethrower, burn these Russian pigs!)

The Wehrmacht soldiers are then gunned down by automatic gunfire, and Russian soldiers come running to Reznov and the player's aid.

Daletski: Dimitri? We thought you were among the dead in the massacre at the square!

Reznov: He was. Among them, but not one of them.

Daletski: We're about to assault the communication post north of here...

Reznov: Good. Such a move will prevent the German command calling for help. Dimitri and I will provide cover from above... Wait til you hear the screams of dying Germans. Dimitri... This way... Up the ladder.

Daletski: This way, Comrades... Take positions, and wait for the signal...

The player and Reznov climb a ladder, head down a fire escape, and enter another building.

Reznov Hold your fire. Do you see the flamethrowers? You must choose your moment. Exploding the fuel tank will incinerate anyone standing nearby.

The player attacks in whatever way they want to, and the Wehrmacht soldiers below are alerted to the Red Army soldiers.

Reznov: Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Excellent aim, Dimitri! Give covering fire to our comrades below!

If the player misses or does not explode the tank, the first two lines are not said. Another Wehrmacht flamethrower enters the area.

Reznov: Another flamethrower!... Blow him to pieces!

A Wehrmacht soldier mans the MG in the window opposite of the players position.

Reznov: MG in the second floor window!

On the balcony closest to the player, Wehrmacht soldiers enter and begin firing at the player.

Reznov: German reinforcements! Moving on to the left balcony! Keep firing!

Wehrmacht soldiers enter the high balcony.

Reznov: More! On the high balcony!

When the player has killed enough Wehrmacht soldiers.

Daletski: They are retreating! Forward!!! Ura!!!

Reznov: Our friends are moving up. We must do the same! Up the stairs, quickly.

Reznov and the player reach a balcony overlooking a new street. This new balcony is attacked by Wehrmacht soldiers.

Reznov: More infantry! Cut them down!

If the player gets a kill with a sniper rifle without aiming.

Reznov: No scope?! Hahaha, nice!

When the player clears the balcony of Wehrmacht soldiers.

Reznov: Keep firing! Our friends below need cover!

If the player uses the mounted MG42 on the ledge.

Reznov: Rip those vermin to shreds!

When the player kills enough Wehrmacht soldiers.

Daletski: Charge!!!

A Wehrmacht half track appears.

Reznov: Halftrack! Take out its machine gun!

The player takes out the half-track and Daletski's squad proceeds to clear the communication post.

Reznov: Our comrades are clearing the building! Watch your fire!

Daletski's squad capture the communication post.

Reznov: They have taken the communication post. Amsel will try to run. Quickly! We must cut off his escape route!

The player and Reznov move throughout the building they are in, encountering Wehrmacht resistance throughout.

Reznov: Follow me... I know a perfect sniping position overlooking the command post.

The player and Reznov reach the sniping position.

Reznov: Hold fire! We are too close to our goal to reveal our position. There is nothing we can do for our comrades... Their sacrifice will not go unavenged... The death of General Amsel will be just the beginning... Look ahead... The building adorned with flags is the German command post... General Amsel will soon be in our sights. The sounds of battle will flush him out.

If the player alerts the Wehrmacht soldiers of their position.

Reznov: NO! You idiot! You see?!! They will still die and now you have given away our position!

Amsel and his guards exit the communication post.

Reznov: Coward! There he is! Chyort! He is not alone! Put a bullet in his bodyguard's head! The mudak is using the destroyed tank for cover!

If the player shoots but barely misses Amsel.

Reznov: You just grazed him!

Amsel hides behind a destroyed tank.

Reznov: Amsel is hiding behind the destroyed tank! He is on the move!

Amsel resumes fleeing and hides behind a burning truck.

Reznov: There! At the burning truck!

Amsel resumes fleeing and hides behind an artillery piece.

Reznov: The mudak is cowering behind the artillery piece!

A car with a Wehrmacht soldier driving drives by. Amsel gets in.

Reznov: He's getting into that car!

The car begins to drive off.

Reznov: Shoot the driver! Stop him!

If the player manages to shoot the Wehrmacht driver, Amsel will get out of the car and run.

Reznov: Amsel is running! Do not let him escape.

If the player doesn't kill Amsel and he escapes:

Reznov: NO! You have failed!/Our chance is lost!

The player kills General Amsel. His death is in slow motion.

Reznov: Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! (laughing) You are a true marksman, Dimitri!

There is a large explosion, and both the player and Reznov are thrown to the ground.

Reznov: They will be coming for us! We must go!

Both Reznov and the player start running.

Reznov: Quickly! Before their tanks fire again!

The player and Reznov reach a flight of stairs and meet a large group of German soldiers. Reznov starts firing his PPSh-41 and kills the Germans.

Reznov: DIE! You scum sucking animals!!! RRAAAAGH!!!

The soldiers die and another explosion rocks the building as Reznov and the player continue running. They eventually reach an opening in the wall overlooking a river.

Reznov: Into the river, Dimitri! It is our only chance!

Reznov jumps.

Reznov: GO!!!!

The player jumps into the river below. They are submerged and a hat can be seen on the water. The level ends
Posted June 21 2016 - 06:45
There is a "Rules for Safety" sign in the East Hall Corner that is randomly replaced by newspaper articles throughout the game. These articles reveal certain elements of the game's lore and backstory.[1]
Missing children poster clean

The four newspapers appearing as hallucinations in place of the Rules for Safety sign.

Freddy Fazbear's Pizza was once a popular restaurant for adults and children alike. However, due to a number of incidents including the kidnapping and implied murder of five children by a man wearing an empty animatronic suit, sanctions by the Health Department over the numerous reports of dirtiness and "The Bite of '87", the pizzeria has fallen on hard times. Freddy Fazbear's Pizza is set to close by the end of the year, as potential buyers do not want to be associated with the tainted reputation of the company.

It was revealed that Phone Guy disappeared sometime before the events of the game, as heard during the phone call on Night 4 and is implied to have been stuffed into a suit and/or killed. There are many theories as to what happened to Phone Guy after the call cuts out, but one can be certain that he was attacked. There is also speculation about a more complicated and twisted version of the plot, due to the phone message heard during Night 5.
48px-Name.svg.png Conjecture
Plot has not been given an official name; as such, this name is purely conjectural. However, it will be used until an official name is released.
The Missing Children Incident
Missing children poster clean

The posters without the in-game camera filter, from the first game.

The Missing Children Incident was an event that occurred at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, and is mentioned in the first, second, and third games.

In the first game, numerous newspaper clippings can occasionally be seen replacing the Rules for Safety sign, normally appearing in the East Hall Corner. These clippings explain that during June 26th of an unspecified year, a total of five children had gradually gone missing at the pizzeria.

Police suspect that a man had dressed up in a costume resembling one of the animatronics, possibly Golden Freddy's or Springtrap's, as implied on Night 6's phone call in the second game, and lured the children to a back room, where he murdered them.

The four mascots - Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken, and Foxy the Pirate had a particularly foul odor and what appeared to be "blood and mucus" around their eyes and mouths, which concerned parents had interpreted as "reanimated carcasses".

Phone Guy remarks in Night 1's phone message that the animatronics haven't been cleaned in their twenty-plus years of service, which would explain the nasty odor. The stench could also be attributed to a popular theory that the missing children were stuffed into the animatronic suits after they were killed, and that their decomposing bodies were producing the repulsive smell. Supposedly, due to the risk of their servos locking up from lack of use, the animatronics have been left in a "free-roaming mode" at night over the years. They used to be able to roam freely during the day as well, but "The Bite of '87" caused the pizzeria to put a stop to this.
Theories
The Children

Scott Cawthon's hinting of paranormal activity within the pizzeria gave rise to speculation that the ghosts of the five children (and the other victims) might have possessed the animatronics, which caused their macabre and violent behavior.

Another theory speculates that the missing children were stuffed into the four animatronics. This would explain the animatronics' foul odor, the leaking blood and mucus, and the parents' comparisons to reanimated corpses. No one knows what happened to the fifth child though it is believed that the fifth child may have been stuffed into Golden Freddy. This could explain why Golden Freddy has a little girl's laugh. However, it is possible that all of the children were killed and disposed of in a more traditional way.

In the Take Cake to the Children Death Minigame in Five Nights at Freddy's 2, the murder of a single child is witnessed. This would indicate that Purple Guy has struck multiple times and that there is a total of six known children killed. This is supported in the Happiest Day minigame in Five Nights at Freddy's 3, where the six masked children gather around the cake before disappearing.
The Killer

The game doesn't confirm whether the person convicted for the incident was actually the murderer or if the children were stuffed into the animatronics.

Others believe that it was a homicidal employee (as they would have access to the costumes and the animatronics' AI controls), though the newspaper says nothing as to whether the killer was an employee.

It is strongly hinted that the killer was the Purple Guy from the Death Minigames. Upon the completion of the fifth night of Five Nights at Freddy's 3, the player plays as the soul of a dead child, confronting Purple Guy in a room with the four other dead children watching. Purple Guy attempts to hide inside Springtrap, but once in the suit, he misuses it. This causes the locks that held back the animatronic parts to break, causing the springs and other various parts inside the suit to pierce into Purple Guy's body and cause him to die. This also adds to the theory that the man who was supposedly convicted for the murders (as found in the newspaper clippings from the first game) was not actually the killer, as Purple Guy is supposedly free during the events of the minigame.
Night Guard

A variation of two certain theories speculates that the murderer may have been a previous night guard, which would explain why the animatronics are so determined to reach Mike Schmidt (and supposedly Phone Guy before him, as heard during Night 4's phone call). Since the killings may have occurred after-hours, this theory raises the possibility that the victim's souls haunting the animatronics want revenge but can only remember for certain that they think the killer might have been the night guard.
Player Characters

Five Nights at Freddy's 2 hints that the previous day shift guard is the one who murdered the children. Phone Guy mentions on Night 5 of the second game that "no one is allowed in or out...especially concerning any...previous employees." This is also possible because Mike worked after both this incident and The Bite of '87 took place, and because Jeremy Fitzgerald is the only protagonist to not be fired from his job as a night guard.

Another candidate could be Fritz Smith, the security guard on the Custom Night that is fired the following day after he tampers with the animatronics (just as Mike was). However, "tampering with the animatronics" could simply allude to the Custom Night gameplay where the player adjusts the A.I. levels of the animatronics. Furthermore, the fact that Fritz worked after Jeremy possibly disproves this accusation.
Phone Guy

Another hypothesis proposed by fans is that Phone Guy is one of the likely candidates of the Missing Children Incident. Purple Guy appears to be wearing a security badge in the "SAVETHEM" death minigame while Phone Guy was the night security guard before Mike Schmidt. Phone Guy also mentions that Foxy was his favorite, giving fans a reason to believe that he was responsible, as seen in Foxy's Death Minigame, the Purple Guy is seen outside Pirate Cove.

However, the third game's Night 5 cutscene indicates that this hypothesis is highly unlikely:

Phone Guy knew that getting into Springtrap would result in serious injury or death, but Purple Guy clearly did not give thought to any potential dangers of getting into Springtrap, and put it on, thinking he would be safe. However, just like Phone Guy explained during Night 3's phone call, the spring locks holding the compressed animatronic parts came loose, and the mechanical parts crushed Purple Guy, killing him.
Purple Guy also deliberately did what Phone Guy told employees not to do while in the suits: making sudden movements (suddenly standing up quickly) and breathing on the springs (laughing while inside the suit) providing further evidence that Phone Guy was not Purple Guy, as Phone Guy would have known not to perform these actions.
Purple Guy dismantles all the animatronics before his death and is killed by being crushed inside Springtrap while Phone Guy is implied to be killed by the animatronics themselves, before they were dismantled.

Other

By Golden Freddy's appearance in the second game (with wires popping out of the eyes and shoulders), it would surely be impossible to get in the suit, although, these wires could just be hanging out of the outside of the suit, being barely inside. This could, however, also mean that the wires and beams were removed and the ones seen are just leftovers.
Springtrap, however, is another possible candidate given that he is yellowish in color.
Given that Golden Freddy has a similar appearance to Springtrap as well as appearing in the mini games alongside Springtrap while performing for children, many believe that Golden Freddy was a suit that could be worn like Springtrap. If this is the case, it is still very possible for Golden Freddy to be the suit used in the murders.

There is another recently popular theory that suggests that The Puppet was responsible for the animatronics being possessed. The Death Minigames in the second game seem to back up the idea, as in the "Give Gifts, Give Life" minigame, The Puppet is shown putting the heads of the original animatronics (Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie, Chica and Foxy) onto the corpses of children. A fifth child briefly appears before Golden Freddy pops out at the player. In the Happiest Day minigame in the third game, the five children appear wearing their character masks and are joined by the player-controlled child, who is revealed to be wearing The Puppet's mask, indicating that The Puppet is another child's spirit.

The Bite of '87

The Bite of '87 was an incident that occurred in 1987 at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza; it was briefly mentioned by the Phone Guy in the first game. The details of this attack (and the identity of the animatronic responsible) were not given, but it allegedly caused the loss of the frontal lobe of the victim's brain.

The incident contributed to a loss in the restaurant's reputation, which resulted in a major drop in business.

As a result of the incident, the animatronics were no longer allowed to wander around the building during the day; the management decided to limit their free-roaming mode to nighttime, so as to "prevent their servos from locking up," as stated by Phone Guy.

| Clank's Arrival |
| Code STRT |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Kyzil Plateau, Planet Veldin - 11:13am local time]

The scene opens with Ratchet walking over to a ship outside his garage for a
home. He jumps onto a crate, then uses his wrench to start working on the
engine inside it. After a few seconds, he stood back in silence, and then
pressed a button on a glove on his left hand.

Helpdesk girl: Final step - attach Robotic Ignition System. Thank you for
using helpdesk technology.

At that sight, Ratchet sighed, as he knew that he was getting much closer - but
not quite - to his dream of becoming a space explorer.

[Meanwhile, in a factory on a nearby planet]

We see a conveyor belt, producing large robot warriors in great numbers. But
all of a sudden, an error message came up on a computer screen. That resulted
in Clank being spurted out. He looked at his surroundings, and came across a
yellow robot at the other end of the room - an infobot. He looked at it, and
it displayed a message for him. Meanwhile, in the shadows, a large sentry bot
looked towards him. Once the infobot reached the end of the message, the robot
came to try and swipe it from Clank, but he immediately took hold of it, ran
out of the factory and slid down a slide, which lead right into a space
shuttle. He took a grip of the controls, and that sent him blasting up high
towards the sky. Two other large robots came soon afterwards, and they entered
their respective ships and started chasing him.

[Approaching Planet Veldin - 11:47am local time]

The chase continued. Two plasma shots were fired towards Clank, whom evaded
them. With utter panic, he continued to try and lose the robot warriors, until
a shot hit his ship in the back, sending him flying down towards the planet's
surface.

Faster and faster Clank went, until he landed with a crash, with the ship
destroyed, and himself on the floor, unconscious. The sound caused Ratchet to
go over there, and find the rubble for himself. He picked up Clank, and went
back to his home.

Later, we see him tweakening his engine again. At that point, Clank started to
recover, and once he saw Ratchet, he started making his way towards him. And
then, he spoke.

Clank: Interesting.
Ratchet: YAIEE!!!

At that point, Ratchet fell from his crate onto the floor. Sooner or later, he
stood back up.

Clank: You're quite handy with your wrench.
Ratchet: You bet! I built that ship with it.
Clank: Hmmm... currently I am in search of someone who could be of assistance
of saving the Solar System. Do you know where I'll find that fellow?

He pointed to a poster of Captain Qwark, hanging inside Ratchet's garage.

Ratchet: Well, he's on the radio every week. Other than that, no. Hey, what's
with all this save the Solar System stuff anyway?

The infobot emerged onto the scene, and displayed the answer to Ratchet's
question. The scene in there showed a room in a space ship, where we see the
game's villain, Chairman Drek.

Drek: Hello, citizens of-

A picture of Novalis is shown on the screen, with its name in bright white
letters underneath.

Drek: My race, the Blarg, have a small problem. Our planet has become so
polluted, overpopulated and poisonous that we are no longer able to dwell here.
But I, Chairman Drek, have a solution. We are constructing a pristine new world
using the choices of planetary components available. So, what does this mean to
you, you might ask? Using highly sophisticated technology, which you couldn't
possibly understand, we will be extracting a large portion of your planet and
adding it to our new one. Unfortunately, this change in mass will cause your
planet to spin out of control and drift into the sun where it will explode into
a flaming ball of gas, but, of course, sacrifices must be made. Thank you for
your co-operation.
Director: CUT!
Drek: And if you don't like it, you can take your whiny snivelling snot nosed
populations, form a line behind me and you can kiss my-

There was silence for a couple of seconds.

Drek: Are we still on? Well turn it off, you idiot!

The infobot was finished with the message, and it returned to Clank.

Ratchet: The people on those planets are hosed! Well, good luck getting
Captain Qwark to help you.
Clank: Actually, you could help me. If you could use your ship to take me to
the co-ordinates contained in this infobot, I might be able to gather further
information there.
Ratchet: Even if I wanted to, I can't. I'm missing a crucial component of the
ship.

There was silence for a few seconds, as Clank looked at the ship and
thought. Then, he came up with a solution.

Clank: The Robotic Ignition System!
Ratchet: How did you know what?
Clank: I sir happen to be equipped with the latest in Robotic Ignition
Systems. My programming allows me to start any ship I choose.
Ratchet: So I agree to take you to this... wherever it is... and you get this
ship started for me?
Clank: That is what I'm proposing.

As he finished his sentence, the two enemy ships came down on the planet.
Then, all was settled.

Ratchet: Deal!

[Chairman Drek's Flagship]

From the window view, we see the two in their ship, leaving their planet.
Chairman Drek was watching them through that window.

Drek: This could be a problem. Take care of it.

A dark shadow with a round top of the head and an antennae left the scene.
Meanwhile, back on Ratchet's ship...

Ratchet: Whoa, this is great!

He looked back at his home planet, which was getting further away from him.

Ratchet: So THAT'S where I've been stuck this whole time!
Clank: Please return your appendages to the steering mechanism, sir.
Ratchet: Huh? Oh right, heh. sorry. Oh, and by the way, you can stop calling me
sir. The name's Ratchet.
Clank: Pleased to make your acquaintance, sir.
Ratchet: You got a name?
Clank: My serial number is B54296-

Just when he tried to finish off, the ship was accidentally tilted to the left
slightly.

Ratchet: Oops! I'll just call you Clank for short. Hang on!

They came closer to Novalis, but that is where we'll leave them for now.

[Back on Chairman Drek's flagship]

Drek is in his main room, with a robot lieutenant and a mayor with him.

Drek: So you'll see, it would be most beneficial if your citizens were not in
the city when my workers begin removing it.
Mayor: Preposterous! I will not stand for this!
Drek: Unfortunately, you have no choice in the matter.
Mayor: Let's just see what Captain Qwark has to say about that, my good man!

This just left Drek laughing vilely.

Mayor: I don't see what's so funny. Captain Qwark could dispatch you without
even breaking a sweat! You, you puny...
Drek: You have now officially worn out your welcome, and my patience!

The lieutenant picks him out and starts leaving.

Mayor: This is your last chance! Stop this madness now!
Drek: Okay, wait... you're right, I WILL withdraw my troops!
Mayor: Really?
Drek: No! He's all yours gentlemen! Try not to leave any marks!

[Entering atmosphere of Planet Novalis]

The ship crashes into a wall, causing Ratchet to fall towards the ground,
screaming, until he landed on his back with a thud.

Ratchet: Oooomph!

A few seconds later, he looked around from his position.

Ratchet: Uhm... Clank... where are you?
Clank: (muffled) I'm right here.

The signal caused Ratchet to sit up, showing Clank underneath him.

Ratchet: Oh, sorry about that.

He stood up.

Ratchet: Well, we're not leaving the way we came in.
Clank: Perhaps we could prochure a ship from one of the inhabitants.
Ratchet: If there are any left.

The two made their way round the surface of the planet, and came across a ship
heading down towards the sky. Three robots emerged, and they took them out
easily. Sooner or later, the mayor came out, looking panicked.

Mayor: Don't hurt me! Don't hurt me! Who are you? Mercenaries? Torturers?
Assassins? I'll tell you anything! Here, take my infobot, it's all I got left.
Clank: Sir, we're not assass-
Ratchet: Hold on, let's see what he's got.

The infobot started playing a message. It started with a scenario with Captain
Qwark surrounded by a snagglebeast. He took out his laser and tried to fire at
it, but... it didn't work. The beast brought its head forward and attempted to
eat him.

[Action freezes]

Qwark's voice: Has THIS ever happened to you?

The scene switches to outside a repair shop in a bustling city.

Qwark: Hi, I'm Captain Qwark, and believe me, there's nothing worse than
starring down a Blargian Snagglebeast - from the inside - and knowing your
equipment isn't functioning properly! That's why I come to Al's Robo Shack for
all my electronic needs. Al has been the exclusive repair shop for my super
electro gadgets since I was knee high to a sand mouse! If Al can't fix it, it's
not broke, right Al?
Al: (shyly) Er...
Qwark: You said it pal! So if you're fighting crime, or just fighting grime,
heheh, come to Al's Robo Shack in Metropolis for all your robotic repairs.
Al's Robo Shack, it's Qwarktastic!

The advertisement was over, and the infobot went towards Clank.

Clank: Do you know what this means?
Ratchet: Yeah, Captain Qwark has really sold out.
Clank: No, it means Captain Qwark is on Metropolis! We could tell him about
this invasion...
Ratchet: If we had a ship...
Mayor: Huh? Uh... a ship? You mean... you're not gonna torture me? Well, as
planetary chairman I could arrange for you to borrow our courier ship!
Ratchet: Cool!
Clank: You can count on us, sir.
Ratchet: Right, thank you, your chairman shippliness.

The two left that scene, and explored the planet even more. They came across a
waterworker, struggling with his job.

Waterworker: Dadblast-it!
Ratchet: (laughs lightly) Look, Plumber's Crack!
Waterworker: (turns around) What did you just say?
Ratchet: I said "Look, the plumber's back."
Waterworker: Alright wise guy, shouldn't you be on one of them escape
transports?
Ratchet: Escape transports?
Waterworker: Newsflash, giant robots attacking! The escape transports have
taken all the rich fokes off this goddarn planet!
Ratchet: So why aren't you on one?
Waterworker: Socialeconomic disperity.
Ratchet: What?
Clank: He hasn't got enough bolts.
Waterworker: Working people have to wait for Captain Qwark to save us!
Ratchet: Well, got anything worth a lot of bolts?

The waterworker pulled out an infobot and showed it to them both.

Waterworker: I got this thing - shows two weirdos ditching their ship. It's
got coordinates to a desert planet too.
Clank: An infobot! Ratchet, we could use that.

They paid for the infobot, and that caused the waterworker to reach a sewer
pipe and slide down it.

Waterworker: Geromino!
Ratchet: Did he just slide down a sewer pipe?

The infobot displayed the message to them, showing Skid McMarx, a
hoverboarding professional, and his agent, riding in a ship, heading towards a
missile storm.

Skid: Mayday, mayday! This is the solarship Radical. We seem to be under
attack from the planet's surface!
Agent: Relax Skid, it looks like some sort of fireworks display. Probably in
your honor.
Skid: Whoa, that was close...

Then, something hit the ship.

Skid: Aaaagh!
Agent: Pipe down, I can't concentrate!
Skid: Ooh, we've been hit!
Agent: Er... an unexpected detour. When we land I'll see if I can scare up an
exhibition for you.
Skid: But I'm not gonna live that long!

Somehow, another missile came right towards them.

Agent: Kid, let's am-scray!
Skid: Eject! Eject!

Both Skid and the Agent escaped from the ship. The message finished, and the
infobot reached Clank.

Ratchet: Did you see that guy on the left? That was Skid McMarx.
Clank: Does he know about Captain Qwark?
Ratchet: I doubt it. He's a Pro Hoverboarder, always going off about how cool
he is.
Clank: Looks like he's in trouble.
Ratchet: I'll say! I never saw him look so freaked out...

Sooner or later, the two slid down the pipe themselves and returned to their
ship, where they set off for Metropolis in Kerwan.

Once there, they started the search for Al's Robo Shack. Within no time at
all, they arrived in the owner's presence.

Clank: Ratchet, that's the man we saw on the infobot. Remember? He knows
Captain Qwark!
Ratchet: Hey, you're that robot guy, right?
Al: No, actually I build robots. I myself am not a robot guy per se,
heheheheh...
Ratchet: Nerd.
Clank: I like him.
Al: So, now that we've clared that up, what can I do for you?
Clank: Well, we saw your infobot announcement. You were with Captain Qwark.
We're trying to find Captain Qwark. We thought you could help us.
Al: Your logic is commendable, however I haven't seen Captain Qwark since we
shot that commercial. Say, do you run on standard XP-18 sisterboards?
Clank: Version 7.66.
Al: Back at ya! I may be able to help you out after all. How does a helipack
upgrade sound?
Ratchet: Upgrade?
Al: Natch. Since he's a seven-six-six, I could have the little guy up and
flying in no time! Of course, I'll just need my fee for service.

It was paid for in no time at all. And as Al spoke his next line, he raised
Clank to his level.

Al: Okay, this won't hurt a bit.
Clank: Hey wait!

Within a few seconds, drilling would be heard. Then, Clank was seen showing
off a set of helicopter blades on the top of his head and the tips of his
arms.

Clank: Ratchet, am I cool now?
Ratchet: Hey, you're da man, Clank!
Al: You're welcome!

The two leave, and progress further into the city. On one aspect, they came
across another infobot near the engine of a train. They boarded it, and soon,
it started too move. They carefully made their way to the front, where the
infobot flew off to the arrival platform once at the next stop. They jump off,
and reach it, where it played a message between Chairman Drek, from his
spaceship, and the robot lieutenant, from a logging site.

Lieutenant: (salutes) Greetings, Executive Chairman Drek!
Drek: Dispense with the pleasantaries, lieutenant. My sources tell me you're
behind schedule. You must prepare this planet to be harvested for our new
world!
Lieutenant: Yes sir. As you can see, everything is moving along, as planned.

In the background, one robot ended up slashing another in half with its axe.

Drek: I'm counting on you, lieutenant. And as your former commander can tell
you, I don't take disappointment well.
Lieutenant: Yes sir! I won't fail!

The message was over, and the infobot went to Clank.

Clank: Drek is destroying yet another planet!
Ratchet: Yeah, but if that's the kind of help he's getting, I don't think we
have anything to worry about.
Clank: You should not underestimate Chairman Drek. He is quite dangerous. We
must find Captain Qwark!
Ratchet: Look, that lieutenant doesn't seem so tough. Let's take him out
ourselves!
Clank: Perhaps we can persuade the lieutenant to tell us where Drek is!
Ratchet: Haha... now you're talking!

The two made their way down to ground level, and there was a glimmer of
Captain Qwark in the distance. They went up to it, and saw a robotic figure of
him, attatched to the ground with a spring.

Robo Qwark: Welcome to the Captain Qwark fitness course! If you're strong
enough, fast enough and clever enough to beat my fitness challenge, you will
receive a reward from my head trainer! Simply make your way to the third
island to complete the course. Good luck! (starts speaking fast) Qwark
enterprises is not responsible for sprains, broken bones, snapped tendons,
bruised egos or accidental death incurred while taking the challenge.

This immediately brought Clank into asking questions to the robot...

Clank: Excuse me captain, but we have more pressing issues. We urgently need
your assistance.
Ratchet: Clank?
Clank: Yes?
Ratchet: Do you notice anything unusual about Captain Qwark?
Clank: Well I find the fact that he has a spring where his legs should be to
be quite puzzling.
Ratchet: And why do you think that is?
Clank: Possibly an injury occurred while battling evil?
Ratchet: This is't the real Captain Qwark, you numskull! It's a robot!
Clank: Oh.

The two tackled the course at their very best, and they were greeted by the
trainer at the end... very cold heartedly.

Trainer: Listen up, you lardballs! That was the most pathetic display I have
ever seen on that obstacle course!
Ratchet: Whadaya mean?
Clank: We finished the circuit, ma'am.
Trainer: Ya, but it was veak, veak, VEAK! Vhen I was competing I would devour
courses like that for breakfast!
Ratchet: Bet that's not all.
Trainer: If it were up to me, you would drill, drill, drill for the rest of
the day! But somehow you managed to impress that fool Captain Qwark!
Clank: Captain Qwark knows about us?
Trainer: He certainly does. And vorst of all, he wants me to give you a prize
for that ridiculous performance!
Ratchet: Cool, what is it?
Trainer: I'm supposed to give you a Svingshot, so you can svay to and fro like
little insects!
Ratchet: Alright, let's see it.
Trainer: Not so fast! Today the two of you disgraced my obstacle course, so I
am going to make you pay!
Clank: But that prize is ours from the captain. That's not fair.
Woman: Too bad, life's not fair.

They paid for it with ease, and within seconds, the Swingshot was in Ratchet's
grip.

Ratchet: Sweet! I bet Captain Qwark uses stuff like this all the time.
Trainer: Ha! Real men can sving without silly toys like that!

She went onto a taxi, and leered at them for one last time.

Trainer: The two of you make me sick!

And with a snort, the taxi took her away from the area. This left the pair of
them to return to their ship and travel to Aridia.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No sooner than they arrived, they very quickly came face to face with Skid.

Ratchet: It's him! Skid McMarx!
Clank: That man from the infobot.
Skid: In the flesh, little dude! You guys get a load of that epic space battle
I was in?
Ratchet: We saw you screaming for help.
Skid: Uh, that was like a war cry. My agent and I got ambushed on the way to
hoverboard practice.
Clank: Did he survive the crash, sir?
Skid: Aah, he's okay. But I've had a little trouble getting back to my ship...

(camera zooms out, showing a group of sand sharks nearby)

Skid: ...due to my sprained ankle.
Ratchet: Oh come on!
Skid: If you can take out all the sandsharks, I just might have a spare
hoverboard for you!
Clank: We'd love to help you Mr McMarx, but Ratchet and I need to find Captain-
Ratchet: Shhh! One of your boards? Hmmm... I've always wanted a decent
hoverboard... alright, you just keep that foot elevated.

So Ratchet stormed in the area and took out all the sand sharks. Later, Skid
was back at his ship, and once there he opened it up and took out a hoverboard.

Skid: Here man, catch.

He tossed it over to Ratchet's arms, and he immediately beamed at the sight of
it.

Ratchet: A brand new Z-3000! You can't even buy these!
Skid: Well, I gotta bail. Catch you dudes in the hoverboard races.

Skid leaves the scene. This left the two to explore the factory nearby and
they got the Tresspasser on the way.

Ratchet: Yes!

Sooner or later, they found Skid's agent, with his escape pod in a nervous
wreck... and so was he, trying to make contact on his mobile phone, but no
luck.

Agent: Aargh, no signal whatsoever! This down time is killing me!
Clank: Do you need medical attention, sir?
Agent: Don't be so literal, son! The problem is I'm stranded on this backwater
planet and my star client is nowhere to be found!
Ratchet: Hey, we saw you on that infobot! You're Skid's agent!
Agent: WAS Skid's agent. Haven't seen him since our ship crashed, and an agent
without a client is like a flea without a dog! Say, you look like an athletic
kid. If you can bring back the championship prize from the hoverboard races in
Blackwater City, I'll make you my next star!
Clank: We have no time for trivial matters, sir.
Ratchet: Hmmm... I could be the next Skid McMarx!

Excited as he was, they left the area, and headed to Eudora.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| LOGGING SITE |
| Planet Eudora |
| Code EDR |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meanwhile, back on Drek's ship, the big cheese looked at his planet, which was
currently eclipsing the sun.

Drek: Yes, quite lovely. That should just about do it.

He presses a button near him and holds it down as he spoke his next line.

Drek: Commander, we are finished with this world. Commence towing our planet
to its next destination.

He released the button, and then pressed it again for the next command. The
action then goes back and forth between Drek in his ship, and the robot
lieutenant at the logging site.

Drek: Lieutenant!
Lieutenant: Yes sir!
Drek: You have fulfiled your tree quota. Barely.
Lieutenant: We are ready to return to base!
Drek: Not so fast, lieutenant! Just because we don't need any more trees
doesn't mean THEY should have them! Destroy everything! Hehehe!

A while later, our heroes arrived at Eudora. Once there, they found the suck
cannon...

Ratchet: Sweet!

...and with careful timing, they found the robot lieutenant. Once there, Clank
jumped down and attempted some karate poses. That caused an infobot to drop
from the lieutenant, causing him to run and leave the area. Behind Clank, was
Ratchet, in a threatening pose with his wrench, whom soon hid his weapon and
smiled at his companion.

Ratchet: You sure showed him!
Clank: I suppose I did.

The infobot showed a commercial. It started off with a scientist with a
wrench, trying to tighten a nut in a pipe, but it snaps off and oil is
splattered onto his face.

Drek's voice: Is your current occupation leaving a rotten taste in your mouth?

(scene switches to the main room for the station)

Drek: Then you need to know about BTS - Blarg Tactical Research Station. Hi,
I'm Surpreme Executive Chairman Drek, and we here at BTS are seeking motivated
individuals to fill positions in these exciting careers.

(scene shows a scientist sliding down with grind boots, but he trips up and
lands on his groin before falling off)

Drek's voice: Grindboot tester, warhead assembly technician...

(scene shows another scientist trying to feed a chicken to a monster, but the
monster ate the scientist instead)

Drek's voice: ...mutant animal husbandry, robot repairman...

(scene shows one scientist sucking another inside a suck cannon, causing him
to rebound into a bottomless pit below)

Drek's voice: ...Suck Cannon test dummy, administrative assistant...

(scene switches back to Drek in the main room)

Drek: So call BTS! Build our weapons while you build your future!

(scene switches to the same scientist at the start of the commercial)

Scientist: I'm calling BTS today!

The commercial ended, and the infobot went to Clank.

Ratchet: Now we're talkin'! Did you see all the cool gadgets they were making?
Let's go get some!
Clank: No, we must continue our search for Captain Qwark.
Ratchet: You're absolutely right.
Clank: I am?
Ratchet: Sure, we need to find Qwark. Although when we find him, wouldn't it
be nice to tell him where Drek is?
Clank: I suppose.
Ratchet: Well, we go to the space station and talk to the scientists. They
work for Drek, so they're bound to know where he is.
Clank: I am unsure about your logic.
Ratchet: Aah, you think too much! Come on, let's go!

So they returned to their ship and made their way to the Blarg Station.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| BLARG TACTICAL RESEARCH STATION |
| Nebula G34 |
| Code BTRS |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Their first exhibition was a long route towards a scientist, trying to avoid
monsters eating him. They defeated them, and he gave out a sigh of relief.

Inventor: Whew, I thought I was a goner this time. Some nano-wit in genetics
must have left the cages open again.
Ratchet: You can come down now.
Inventor: Honestly, a Gadget Engineer deserves a bit more respect if you ask
me!
Clank: So, you are an inventor?
Inventor: Gadget Engineer, I create revolutionary devices for Surpreme
Executive Chairman Drek. For instance...

He roots into his pocket and takes out a couple of red boots.

Inventor: Viola! My soon to be patented GRINDBOOTS.

Ratchet still looked at him curiously.

Inventor: Look, I need to get out of here so I can find a new job. How about I
sell you these, at cost?
Ratchet: Sell? After we just saved your scrawny butt?
Inventor: Alright, I'll give you the employee discount too.

It was paid for.

Inventor: Well, thanks. I'm gonna get outta here while I still can.

The inventor leaves via a small shuttle near the ship. As he leaves, Ratchet
looked at the boots, with a proud smile on his face. Then, they leave via a
grind rail towards another door. Once down there, he sent Clank outside. He
found a large compressing gadget, and he immediately stuffed it inside his
robotic storage before cackling with success. He returned and showed it to
Ratchet.

Clank: I'm back.
Ratchet: So you are.
Clank: And, I found this.

He tossed the gadget into his arms, and he looked at it curiously.

Ratchet: Hey, cool! It's a... a... what is it?
Clank: A hydrodisplacer.
Ratchet: (looking shy) Great, I always wanted one of those... I guess...

They left that area, and found a shuttle. They took it to a distant Blarg
ship, and ended up exploring it and accidentally pressing the self-destruct
switch. They got out, grabbing an infobot with them. Once they left, they
looked at the robot and it displayed a news report on its screen. In the
background, we see a soldier taking on an amoeba-like monster.

Darla: This is Darla Gratch reporting live from Blackwater City. We've just
learnt that Captain Qwark will be presenting the grand prize at the
Intergalactic Hoverboard Championship, which will be held here over the next
few days.

In the background, the monster ate up the soldier, and slowly approached Darla.

Darla: In related news, this planet has recently been suffering from an
infestation of strange amoeboid creatures. The city's administration has
assured this reporter that every step has been taken to eradicate these
nuisances. Darla Gratch, Channel 2 news.

As the monster was about to eat her, the screen was turned off. Then, the
infobot went towards Clank.

[NOTE: This next part can not be viewed if you haven't seen Skid or his agent
back at Aridia.]

Ratchet: Did you see that?
Clank: Yes. I hope the poor woman is alright.
Ratchet: Aah, she's fine... I think. I was talking about the hoverboard races.

The two leave for Rilgar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| BLACKWATER CITY |

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once there, they headed for the track, and on their way they came across a
salesman.

Salesman: RYNO for your robot - trade ya.
Ratchet: Well... okay!
Clank: Ratchet!
Ratchet: I'm kidding! Sorry, he's not for sale. And what's a RYNO anyway?
Salesman: Rip Ya a New One.
Ratchet: What did you just say to me?
Salesman: R-Y-N-O - Rip Ya a New One.
Clank: Why, that's the most powerful missile launcher in the galaxy! I know
it's worth a lot of bolts! He must have stolen it from the Blarg!
Salesman: Stolen? Look Trash Can, did I says anything about it being hot?
You'd better watch your mouth or I'll-
Ratchet: Wait, don't tell me - Rip Ya a New One.

Sooner or later, they paid for it (strange, ever since it costs 150'000
bolts!). The weapon was tossed into his arms and Ratchet immediately tried to
carry it, but...

Ratchet: Urgh, this thing is heavy!
Salesman: Yeah, try carrying it around in yer trenchcoat for 2 months.
Clank: Thank you, sir. We'll be sure to tell everyone about your services.
Salesman: *picks up Clank by the neck* Listen, little twerp! If you tell anyone
what you saw or what we's talked about--
Ratchet: Do I even have to say it?

Ratchet aimed the gun at the salesman, whom stepped back with both arms in the
air.

Salesman: Youse two have a nice day!

After that, the two continued their way to the Raceway Plaza, where they were
greated by a trophy girl.

Trophy girl: Welcome to the Hovercon Intergalactic Hoverboarding Competition!
Captain Qwark's giving away a brand new Platinum Zoomerator to the winner of
this competition!

[NOTE: If you haven't seen Skid's agent, then you won't get this next part of
the dialogue.]

Clank: A Platinum Zoomerator! Perhaps that will be proof of your
accomplishment that Skid's agent requires.
Trophy girl: Wait, do you guys mean Skid McMarx?
Ratchet: Yeah, Skid couldn't make it, so we're here to, you know, fill in for
him.
Trophy girl: Guess we'll see about that.

The two entered the race, and with great skill, they were first past the
finish line. They were greeted by the face of Captain Qwark on a monitor, and
the trophy girl with the zoomerator in her hands.

Qwark: Hi folks, Captain Qwark here. It is my distinct pleasure to introduce
this year's Hovercon Intergalactic Champions! Let's give it up for newcomers-

A monochrome image of the two heroes was brought on screen.

Robot voice: Ratchet and Clank!
Ratchet: (points at the monitor) Hey look, that's us!
Qwark: Today's winners will take home a brand new Professional Grade Model T-
15 Platinum Zoomerator! Manufactured by Gadgetron, this hoverboard drive
delivers more lift, speed and manoeuverability than any other anti-grav device
on the market!

As he spoke, the trophy girl glamorously slipped the zoomerator into Ratchet's
hands. Then, the audience started cheering.

Qwark: Well folks, that's all the time we have. Tonight, remember to set your
infobots to the Qwark Classic Channel for tonight's episode of "Dogfight Over
Death Canyon", starring yours truly. Thank you and have a Qwarktastic day!

The two left, and made a long route round to Qwark's trailer, where they were
stopped by a bouncer.

Bouncer: Hey hey hey! Press conference is over! Captain Qwark don't want no
more reporters bugging him in his trailer!
Ratchet: Oh... you see, my friend and I need to speak to the Captain about a
matter of galactic security.
Bouncer: You mean you and your walking camera? You paparazzi make me sick! Now
beat it!
Clank: But sir, I'm sure that Captain Qwark will understand once we-
Bouncer: No, no, save it. I know how it works. You convince me to let you in.
You snap a picture of the captain in his underpants.
Ratchet: ...underpants?
Bouncer: Then, you sell the picture to the Info-Tabloids for a million bolts!
Ratchet: You got it all wrong!
Bouncer: Meanwhile, I'm stuck here making six bolts an hour and I have to
listen to a lecture from that cheapskate Qwark! So you don't get in unless I
get a kickback, in advance!

They paid him, and the bouncer made way.

Bouncer: You see how it works - you grease the hinges, the door opens.

The two head inside the trailer, where they come face to face with the
captain, lying down on some sort of sunbed.

Clank: Captain... Qwark?

Qwark sat up with a start.

Qwark: Whazzat?
Ratchet: It's Ratchet and Clank, Captain! You know, from the-
Qwark: Oh yes, yes, I know who you are.
Ratchet: You do?

Qwark brought himself to his feet, and walked his way over to them.

Qwark: Yes, and thank the Galaxy you found me.
Ratchet: Huh?
Qwark: There's an awful plot being hatched to destroy our planets!
Clank: Ratchet, he knows!
Ratchet: Great. Does that mean we can go hoverboarding now?
Qwark: My friends, we're all in grave danger, and together we can put a stop
to this madness.
Ratchet: Together? You mean, you want OUR help?
Qwark: Look Ratchet, I've been keeping an eye on you, and I've never seen
anyone with such raw talent. You are a true hero in the making.
Ratchet: Really? You mean, I could be famous?
Qwark: Oh, absolutely. Oh, here, take this.

He brought out an infobot, which played an infomercial. Throughout the whole
thing, slides are shown, mostly of Captain Qwark in poses that match with the
script, and an orchestral version of "Land of Hope and Glory" was played in the
background.

Qwark's voice: What makes one man toil in obscurity while another becomes a
hero? Is it strength, compassion, determination, or just pure blind luck? Wise
men through the ages have struggled with that very question, but Captain Qwark
knows the secret! That's why he's been able to defeat more desparates, rescue
more damsels in distress and save more civilisations than any other hero in
the Galaxy! Now is your opportunity to see if you got the stuff heroes are
made of! This infobot contains coordinates to Qwark's secret base. Can you
quickly conquer Qwark's killer candidate of qwonfounded complextions? Can you
quickly qwon - can, can you Qwarkly quick - eurgh! Just make your way through
the defenses to the center of the base! Prove yourself, learn the secret, and
earn your place in Galactic History! (starts speaking fast) Consult your doctor
before attempting any straineous exercise. Not responsible for death or
dismemberment. Your results may vary.

The infomercial finished, and the infobot moved over to Clank's side. We now
see Qwark with a microphone in his hand, speaking through it proudly.

Qwark: Meet me at... uh... (puts the microphone away) Meet me at my
headquarters.
Ratchet: Hey, "Captain Ratchet" - what do you think?
Clank: We won't fail you sir, we promise!

The two head back to their ship, and before they did anything else, they
returned to Aridia.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over there, they gave their hoverboarding prize to Skid's agent.

Agent: Fantastic! You got it! Great work kid!
Ratchet: So, are you gonna represent me?
Agent: You bet kid! And as a signing bonus, I got... this!

He rooted into his shuttle, and pulled out a helmet with large antennaes at
the top, and green goggles attached.

Ratchet: Cool helmet!
Clank: That is a Sonic Summoner. It is used to attract sand mice.
Agent: Right, and it's all yours! Well, I'm off to finalise the paperwork!
I'll have my people call your people!

The agent walked off, and this left a curious expression on Clank's face.

Clank: Do YOU have people?

The two left, and setted off for Umbris, where Qwark's HQ is situated.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They met up with Captain Qwark again, only this time he was riding a
helicopter with one hand and holding a megaphone in another, speaking their
instructions through there.

Qwark: Welcome to my challenge course. Now is your chance to prove yourself
strong and brave! (brings the megaphone away from him) Like me, heheh. (brings
it back towards him) Conquer it and you'll join in my fight against evil!
Ratchet: HAVEN'T WE DONE ENOUGH ALREADY?
Qwark: What? I can't hear you!
Ratchet: I SAID - HAVEN'T - WE - DONE-
Qwark: Sorry, still having trouble! Tell me later!
Ratchet: LATER?! WE MIGHT BE DEAD BY THEN!
Qwark: What?

As Qwark said his final line, the helicopter flew him back to his base.

Ratchet: Alright Clank, let's get going.

The two tackled the obstacle course, and eventually they met up with Qwark
again, in the center of the base.

Qwark: Well, well. You two continue to surprise me.

He jumped onto a hovering platform, as the two came closer. Clank made his way
in the center of the platform at the end, while Ratchet stopped just outside
it.

Qwark: Step into the Ring of Heroes and I will truly give what you deserve.
Clank: Ratchet, this is no time for you to become cautious! We have reached
our goal!
Ratchet: I don't know. There's something fishy going on around here.
Qwark: Listen to your little metal friend, Ratchet. Your destiny is just mere
steps away.
Ratchet: It's just something doesn't seem right.

At that point, Clank rushed to Ratchet, and dragged him to the center of the
platform.

Clank: This is it! Qwark is going to help us stop Chairman Drek!

Qwark looked down at the two, with a suspicious look on his face.

Qwark: Why thank you Clank. You have been... most helpful.

At his last two words, he brought out a remote, pressed a button, and that
sent the two falling to a pit down below. Ratchet was first to land, with a
thud on his back.

Ratchet: Oof!

However, Clank landed gently with his heli-pack, with his feet landing on
Ratchet's stomach. That caused him to push him away.

Ratchet: Get offa me, you idiot!

Up ahead, Captain Qwark came down on his platform, laughing... vilely!

Qwark: I love it when a plan comes together!
Clank: What do you mean?
Ratchet: What do you think he means, genius? He's not gonna help us, he's
gonna kill us!
Qwark: You catch on quick. Although there is one problem with your hypothesis-
I'm not going to kill you.
Ratchet: You're not?
Qwark: No. He is!

In another corner, was a snagglebeast chained to two stone pillars, trying to
break free.

Clank: But... why?
Qwark: (imitates Clank's gestures sarcastically) But why? (stops imitating)
It's really not that difficult to decipher! I'm the official spokesman for
Drek's new planet. I don't want you two getting in the way of my comeback!
Ratchet: This isn't over, Qwark!
Qwark: No... but it will be soon.

The snagglebeast broke out, and started attacking them both. But after a long
battle, he was defeated and sent to the lava pits below. A door opened,
showing an infobot and a red luxury ship with the Qwark symbol on it.

Clank: I wonder what that infobot is for...?
Ratchet: Maybe it could replace you.

The infobot displayed a message - an SOS message from a commando.

Commando: We're pinned down! We're pinned down! The ships are hammering our
position from the aisle!

A missile stormed near him.

Commando: That was a little TOO close! We need support, NOW!

There was silence.

Commando: Actually, I need support. My entire battalion went AWOL and required
me to fight this war on my own! If the enemy doesn't kill those guys, I will!
I'm not gonna last much longer! Requesting immediate assistance! Over and out!

The infobot finished its message, and went to Clank.

Clank: Those are Drek's ships destroying that planet! We must help that
commando!
Ratchet: Are you serious? That's it! I am outta here! Captain Qwark is gonna
be sorry he messed with me!
Clank: This is not about Captain Qwark any more. There are innocent lives
being lost.
Ratchet: Yeah, well I'm done with this stupid hero stuff! I got my own agenda
now!
Clank: Ratchet, this is not like you.
Ratchet: What do you know about me? You spent this whole time looking for
Qwark. You don't know anything about me!
Clank: I know that you will do the right thing.
Ratchet: Well right now the only thing I wanna do is find Qwark!

Ratchet jumped in the ship, but he couldn't start it.

Ratchet: How do you start this stupid thing?
Clank: Have you forgotten? You need a Robotic Ignition System.

As he spoke his line, Clank flew his way up with his heli-pack blades.

Clank: I will start the ship as long as you help that commando.
Ratchet: So... blackmail, is it? Fine. Just shut up and start the ship.

Meanwhile, at Chairman Drek's flagship, Drek himself was seen facing the
window, with Captain Qwark standing behind him.

Drek: Back so soon?
Qwark: (after a couple of seconds) Oh... you're talking to me...
Drek: I'm not on the habit of talking to myself, you buffoon. Did you get rid
of them?
Qwark: Yes! ...no... well I... I had this plan and I thought-
Drek: You thought! You thought! I do the thinking around here, you slug
brained idiot! I simply needed you to eliminate those two nuisances before
they can cause any real trouble!
Qwark: But I wanted to-
Drek: Do you still want to be the highly paid spokesman for my planet?
Qwark: Yeah...
Drek: Then the next time I send you to do a job, I want RESULTS!!! Now get out
of my sight!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Back with our heroes, they arrived at Batalia, where they came face to face
with the commando upon arrival.

Commando: At attention, you deserting maggots!

Without thinking, the two saluted at him.

Commando: The next time you soldiers try to go AWOL I'll shoot you myself!
Ratchet: Look, I just wanna-
Commando: Zip it worm! You see those bombers? If you don't get to the turrets
and knock those ships out of the sky, this whole town's gonna be rubble! Meet
me at the city entrance!

The commando marched off.

Clank: He needs our help!
Ratchet: Yeah, well why don't you go on and help him... into another trap.
Well, go on, go fight some evil.
Clank: At least I'm not a coward!
Ratchet: Whatever. As soon as I find Qwark I'm selling you for scrap.

They made their way to the city entrance, where they saw the commando looking
towards a bolt across a broken bridge.

Commando: Blasted thing, it won't budge! I've tried everything I know short of
nuclear weaponry... hmmm... no, never mind.
Ratchet: Well, you tried. See ya.

Ratchet tried to leave, but...

Commando: Not so fast soldier! You're going into that compound even if I have
to throw you!

He looked around, and saw a magna-strip leading to another side of the city.

Commando: Aha! That ventilation shaft leads to the turret platform! Soldier,
find a way to use that shaft to infiltrate the compound undetected!
Clank: Hmmm...
Commando: You've shown bravery by making it this far, and for that, I reward
you.

He brought out an infobot and placed it near them.

Commando: I intercepted this communique that you might find useful. Take it.
I'm off to find my battalion. Good luck.

The infobot displayed a message - another message from Drek.

Drek: Hello once again fellow Blarg, I hope this message finds you well! As
many of you know, our home planet is no longer habitable. We've abandoned our
factories, our laboratories and our happy lives because of the encroaching
pollution, leaving much behind. Fortunately, the nearby planets will supply us
with all we need to create our new home, which is nearing completion! Once our
scientists locate the ideal orbit, our new world will be perfect! So reserve
your space now, prime locations are filling up fast. Good day!

The infobot finished its message and went to Clank.

Clank: Now do you understand why we must stop him? He won't rest until he's
destroyed every planet in the galaxy!
Ratchet: Yeah, well I got bigger fish to fry.
Clank: Bigger than the galaxy?
Ratchet: Well, different fish anyway. Look, didn't that commando guy said we
can get into that compound?
Clank: Yes. By using the ventilation shaft. But we need something special to
walk on that.
Ratchet: Fine, let's get going then. We'll come back later.

The two reach their ship, but their attention was caught on a grind rail. They
started going down there, and at the end of it all they reached an army
deserter.

Deserter: Halt! Who are you? What are you doing?

Clank brought his hands up as he spoke his next line.

Clank: We are on a mission to save the galaxy!
Ratchet: Speak for yourself, and put your hands down, you look ridiculous.
Deserter: Actually, I don't care who you are. I've gotta get the heck outta
here. I joined the army to get money to go to college. I never knew I'd end up
in a war! Go figure.
Clank: This is a noble cause, sir.
Deserter: Noble my hiney. I just want to get home to my family.

From behind his back, he brought out an infobot.

Deserter: Here, I pulled this off a busted robot. Give me some bolts for bus
fare and it's yours.

They paid for it.

Deserter: Thanks a bunch. Good luck saving the galaxy or whatever.

He dived into the water, while the infobot displayed a message to Drek.

Blarg scientist: Greetings, Surpreme Executive Chairman Drek. As you can see
we're about to test our newest automated Pilot's Helmet. This helmet allows
pilots to control our latest hi-tech fighters using only their thoughts. Please
enjoy the demostration.

As he spoke, a tester went inside the jet fighter. Then, when he finshed
speaking, the ship started getting ready for blast off... until it suddenly
took off backwards, and crashed to a wall.

Blarg scientist: Ooh, we still have a... a few minor adjustments to make...

As he spoke again, the helmet landed on the floor. The infobot finished its
message and went to Clank.

Ratchet: Whoa! If they ever get the kinks worked out of that thing, I have GOT
to get me one of those!
Clank: If they are working for Chairman Drek, they may know where he is.
Ratchet: Is that all you can think about, Drek this and Drek that? I got my own
problems!
Clank: If you cannot see the importance of this situation, you do have
problems.
Ratchet: Yeah, well if you're so smart, how come you fell for Qwark's stupid
trick?

All that Clank did was look up at Ratchet in silence.

Ratchet: Ah, forget it. We both need to get to this planet and that's all that
matters.

The two returned to their ship and left the planet towards Orxon.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| KOGOR REFINERY |
| Planet Orxon (part 1) |
| Code ORX1 |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They landed, and the door opened - the air was impossible to breathe in. Clank
jumped out, but Ratchet was left holding his breath. The panel closed, and he
released his hold, leaving Clank to go around exploring himself. Once there,
he came across a set of magnaboots. As he came closer to him, they were
thrusted onto his chest.

Clank: Oomph!

He pulled them off, and continued his exploration. Later, he came across an
infobot. He saw the message for himself.

Clank: Hmmm... better not let Ratchet see this one.

The infobot went to Clank, and he went back to the ship, where he displayed
his findings to his partner. First came the magnaboots, which he tossed into
Ratchet's hands... but he was brought over and got stuck to them.

Ratchet: Hey, are you giving me these or not?
Clank: They are magnetic. I appear to be stuck to them.
Ratchet: Oh.

Clank released his grip, and crashed into the side of the ship, with his eyes
focusing on his robotic body.

Ratchet: What do you have in there?
Clank: Gears. Metal filings. Dust.
Ratchet: You know what I mean. What is it?
Clank: I will show you this but you must promise to stay focused on our
mission.
Ratchet: Is it something about Qwark?

The infobot came out and displayed its message again, and it was a commercial.

Resort owner: Cities are full of smog, swamps are full of muck and dark pits
are full of dark, but here at Jowai Resort the sun shines twenty-four hours a
day! Visitors get a free O2 mask to explore our warm waters! The benign marine
life will welcome you to the big blue world under the sea! You can also use our
complimentary flippers to partake in speed swimming! So come to Jowai Resort,
and leave your world and your troubles behind!

The infobot finished displaying the message, and it returned to Clank. At this
time, Ratchet started beaming.

Ratchet: Jowai Resort, Pokitaru!
Clank: I knew it.
Ratchet: Oh come on! Switch off your nerd circuits and have some fun! Look,
we'll go just long enough to pick up the O2 mask.
Clank: Perhaps the extra oxygen will help your brain to function properly!
Ratchet: Yeah, and maybe the salt water will rust your mouth shut!
Clank: Hmph!

Before anything else, they made their way back to Batalia.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| FORT KRONTOS |
| Planet Batalia (part 2) |
| Code BTL2 |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They used the magnaboots to reach the turret platform, and where they faced a
real surprise.

Waterworker: Hey, I know you two.
Ratchet: Look, the plumber's back!
Waterworker: Very funny.
Clank: What are you doing here, sir?
Waterworker: Maintenance, what else? I help fix this planet's useless air
defences.
Ratchet: Well you'd better hurry up.
Waterworker: The turret works fine, you little yahoo! It's the locals. They
haven't got the skilled manpower to use it!
Ratchet: I'm a pretty good shot!
Waterworker: You? No, I'm gonna lose my job...
Ratchet: Oh c'mon! What's the sense of keeping up a turret if no one's gonna
use it? Besides, the Blarg chased you off the last planet. Why don't we pay
'em back?
Waterworker: Well, alright, go on if you want. Just don't break anything.

And so he jumped in the turret, and took on all the bombers.

Waterworker: Well, well, well. Looks like he's good for something after
all. Here, take this.

Something was tossed into Ratchet's hand - a long pipe with a silver dish at
the bottom.

Ratchet: What is it?
Waterworker: It detects underground bolts. My grandfather designed it to suck
up loose change on any planet in the galaxy. What a cheap old man he was...
Well, see ya around sometime.

With the new gadget in hand, they returned to their ship and headed for
Gaspar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| BLARG DEPOT |
| Planet Gaspar |
| Code GSP |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After a long and winding search, they came across the Pilot's Helmet.

Ratchet: Now THIS is cool!

Then, they left for Pokitaru.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| JOWAI RESORT |
| Planet Pokitaru (part 1) |
| Code PKT1 |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

That was where they faced the resort owner, who was looking panicked.

Resort owner: Hey, you two are the first friendly faces I've seen in weeks!
...you ARE friendly, aren't you?
Ratchet: To you, yes. (leers at Clank) To him, no.
Resort owner: Well friend, have I got a deal for you. Since the Blarg began
dumping their toxic sludge into our ocean, the wildlife has-
Clank: Become ravenous mutants?
Resort owner: Yeah, you could say that. All my customers either left or became
lunch, so I'm closing the place down. However, I just so happen to have one -
count 'em one - O2 mask left.
Ratchet: How much?
Resort owner: It's not for sale.
Clank: But you said-
Resort owner: I said I had a deal! And indeed I do. You boys get rid of those
blarg ships and it's yours. Just escort me to the other end of the island and
you can use our jet fighter.
Ratchet: Jet fighter eh? Alright, but you better not try to stiff us!

The two escorted him to the other end of the island, where they came across a
garage with a large lock on it.

Ratchet: We're here, now where's that fighter?
Resort owner: Right there in that locked garage. One tourist crashes a jet and
wham! Hehe... lawsuit!
Clank: That lock is unlike any I have seen!
Resort owner: Very astute observation, Mr. Shiny. I can't open it either. I
don't trust the tourists, and the board of directors don't trust me. So we
have a little problem.
Ratchet: WE have a little problem? I just want the O2 mask. So if you can't
open up the lock, that's YOUR problem! Now cough up the mask!
Resort owner: I can see that you really want to fly our jet, so I'll tell you
what. Go talk to Bob in his roboshack. He knows about these locks.

So the two went to the roboshack to their left, and came across a large headed
cat-like figure. That was the figure of Bob, the owner of the roboshack.

Bob: Well, well... whadda we got here?

As he spoke, he picked up Clank to his level.

Clank: Hey, watch it!
Bob: I recognise that work. You've been to see Al, ain'tcha?
Ratchet: Yeah, he installed the heli-pack.
Bob: I kin see that. I taught that idjit brother of mine everything he knows.
Look, if you want some real hardware, I kin fix this lil' feller up with a
thruster pack!
Clank: Ooh!
Ratchet: Will that help us get past that weird lock by the fighter garage?
Bob: Ah, you know about those gizmos, huh? That sure as heck will. It's got a
real special power slam move built right in!
Ratchet: It's a good thing I need it to get to that jet or you'll be outta
luck, pal!

Clank jumped off the desk, and they paid for it. As soon as that was done, Bob
was about to bring Clank back up to his level, but...

Clank: I've got it.

He flew up to him with the heli-pack blades.

Bob: I'll have yeh fixed up faster'n a horny toad a hoppin'!

There was drilling for two seconds, as the upgrade was soon installed onto him.

Bob: There ya are lil' buddy! Better an' new!
Clank: That's right, I am da man!

However, all that Ratchet could do was stretch and yawn.

Ratchet: Yeah... not bad.

They left the roboshack and accessed the fighter garage, where they took out
the jet fighter and shot down the blarg ships. At the end, the Resort Owner
got out the O2 mask.

Resort owner: Well I guess that should do it. Here you go.

He tosses it over to Ratchet's hands, whom had an expression filled with
relief, with a slight bit of anger inside him.

Ratchet: It's about time.

They headed back to their ship, but once there they stumbled across a teleport
switch that took them to the sewers underground. Eventually, they found a
young scrap merchant with a strange device in his hands.

Ratchet: Hey, what are you doing here?
Merchant: I'm searching for a very elusive and secret substance.
Clank: Raritanium?
Merchant: Uhhh, maybe?
Clank: The oceans on this planet are said to be an excellent source of that
element.
Merchant: Well, not anymore. All that toxic dumping has obscured any trace of
it.

He brought out his strange device, which was shown as a pendant with a swirl
in it, and it glowed from light green to cyan repeatedly.

Merchant: (in a cheesy hypnotist voice) You will find Raritanium for me!
Ratchet: (sarcastically) No I will not!

That caused the merchant to look at his pendant angrily.

Merchant: Piece of junk! (shows the pendant again) My latest invention - the
Persuader! I intended to use it to control people's minds, but the only thing
it's gotten me so far is a discount from Gadgetron vendors.
Ratchet: Hey, I could use that!
Merchant: Well, I'll trade it for some Raritanium!
Clank: I believe that planet Hoven is an excellent source of that element.

The two leave to explore Orxon with the O2 mask.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| KOGOR REFINERY |

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once landed, they stepped out together for their exhibition, and sooner or
later, they came across a vending machine. Some bolts were slipped in, and out
came a can of Premium Nanotech. Ratchet drunk it, and then sighed. Then he
used his fists to squash it flat. He paid again, for a can of Ultra Nanotech.
Again, he drank it, but he gave out a long burp at the end. Then, he brought
the can onto his head and squashed it. Later, they found an infobot. After
following it around the refinery, it finally showed its message to them -
another plan from Drek. We see him on the surface of a snow filled planet.

Drek: Hello again everyone, Surpreme Executive Chairman Drek here to fill you
in on our progress. We have now found the perfect orbit for our planet, one
which will allow for the optimum temperature, all year round! However, there is
a planet now occupying that orbit, and sadly for its few insignificant
inhabitants, it must be destroyed. That's why we've created this - the Planet
Buster Maximus, a device capable of blowing an entire planet to sub-atomic
particles! We're quite proud of it! Here's how it works. We attach the Planet
Buster to this ship, fly it into orbit around the planet, and let it go!
Kaboom! Heheh, quite ingenious really. Once our trained professionals put the
finishing touches on our new planet, everything will be complete! Thank you!
Goodbye!

The infobot finished its message and went to Clank.

Ratchet: Now this guy's gonna blow up an entire planet? That's just mean!
Clank: That's what I've been telling you.
Ratchet: Look, I'm still gunning for Qwark, but if we end up taking out Drek
too, heh, fine!

There was silence. Clank looked up towards him.

Ratchet: What?
Clank: You DO care.
Ratchet: Don't push it pal.

The two leave for Hoven.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| BOMB FACTORY |
| Planet Hoven |
| Code HVN |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As they step out, they saw the ship carrying the Planet Buster, close to a
factory.

Clank: That must be the ship that will transport the bomb.
Ratchet: Ya think? Great work detective.

The two made their way across the snowy region towards the factory. But...

Clank: We are too late! The ship is leaving!
Ratchet: Hang on, there's an unused turret over there! Hey, are you thinking
what I'm thinking?
Clank: I seriously doubt it.

The two reach the turret, and used it to destroy the ship and send the bomb
towards the freezing waters, where it landed without any harm done to
anything. Then, behind the turret, an infobot came and showed another message.

Drek: Men, you are about to embark on a very dangerous mission. We will be
launching a heavily armed surprise attack from our new moon base against the
completely unarmed planet. Actually, that doesn't sound too dangerous...
*abrupt cough* Nevertheless... your orders are simple - destroy anything that
moves. Steal the power generators from Gorda City. Then, destroy anything,
that... doesn't move! Oh, and don't forget - have fun!

The infobot finished its message, and went to Clank.

Clank: We must get to the moon base and stop Drek.
Ratchet: No, we have to get to the moon base to find Qwark. If Drek is there,
Qwark is probably with him!
Clank: But Drek is going to destroy that city! We must get to the base!
Ratchet: That's what I said!
Clank: No, that is what I said!
Ratchet: Fine!
Clank: Fine!
Ratchet: ...fine!

They left the area. However, looking at the planet even more, they saw a
builder with a large drill in his hand.

Builder: Awww, heck!
Clank: Is there a problem, sir?
Builder: Ya'll wouldn't have any spare parts, would you?
Ratchet: (gestures at Clank) Help yourself.

Clank looked up at Ratchet furiously.

Builder: These dang rocks keep breaking my drill!
Clank: That 'rock' is Raritanium!
Ratchet: Let me take a look at that drill.

He brought his ear up close to it, shook it, and then he slammed it with his
fist. The drill started turning again.

Builder: Well shoot my dog and call me Sally! Thanks partner!
Ratchet No problem. I suppose I could take that rock off your hands too.
Builder: Heck, here you go!

The rock went into his hands, and he looked down at it with a smile. They left
that area, and then, they reached another roboshack. There was a figure
standing there with a visor over its face.

Ratchet: Hey buddy, what's shakin'?

The figure lifted the visor over its head, or should we say, HER head! The two
have came across a roboshack owner called Edwina.

Edwina: Oh my goodness!

She picks up Clank, and starts gesturing at him nicely.

Edwina: Aren't you... (kisses him) ...just a little angel?
Clank: Hehehe... actually, I'm a little robot.
Edwina: Heh heh, you're funny too!
Ratchet: Yeah, well looks aren't everything.
Edwina: YOU be NICE! (turns back to Clank) I think I got something special for
you! How would you like a Hydropack upgrade!
Clank: That would be quite helpful for swimming underwater.
Ratchet: Whatever.

The upgrade was paid for, and Clank was seen with water 'wings' in no time.

Edwina: There ya go sweetie! You look so handsome!
Clank: Thank you miss. Your craftpersonship is excellent.
Ratchet: If you two are through...
Clank: Jealous?
Edwina: You can come back and see me any old time!

She winked as the two left for their ship and travelled back to Pokitaru.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

They returned to the sewers, where they met back up with the scrap merchant.

Merchant: Perfect! This is precisely what I need! (brings out the Persuader
again and speaks in his hypnotist voice) You will bring me more Raritanium!
Ratchet: You CAN'T be serious!
Merchant: Ah well, I tried.

He tossed the Persuader into Ratchet's hand, and he attatched it to his chest.
They returned to their ship and made their way to the Gemlik Base.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Surpreme Executive Chairman Drek's flagship - Oltanis Orbit]

Aboard the fleet, Drek and Qwark were seen walking side by side towards a
small shuttle in the middle of the room.

Drek: It is time to begin your new assignment.
Qwark: Ah, a photo op by your shiny new shuttle! Terrific idea!
Drek: (sigh) You really are an idiot...
Qwark: What?
Drek: YOU are to take that shuttle to the moon base and ambush those two
miscreants when they arrive!
Qwark: Oh yes! Heh, er, who are they again?

With a growl, he pointed towards a wanted poster with Ratchet and Clank on
there.

Drek: THOSE TWO!
Qwark: Oh, of course! There's just one problem, I'm-
Drek: Too washed up for ground combat? True. That is why I will be loaning you
my star fighter! You can still fly, can't you?

Qwark couldn't help but nod at this point.

Drek: It's settled then. You will acquire the star fighter once you get to the
moon. Screw this up and the endorsement deal is OFF!
Qwark: (large gasp) But that would ruin me! (angrily) You wouldn't!
Drek: Hehheh, try me.

Qwark went towards the ship - which once inside he looked awfully cramped -
and left the area.

Meanwhile, at the entrance to the base, the heroes arrived and looked around.

Clank: I did not see Drek's ship. We must have missed him.
Ratchet: Aargh! Who knows where Qwark is now? If we're gonna catch those two,
we'll need a faster ship!
Clank: Perhaps this space station will supply the ship we need.
Ratchet: Well, we're here. Let's go check it out.

The two explored the ship as deep as they can. But sooner or later, they
reached Captain Qwark, leering at them.

Qwark: Hello, "Captain Ratchet"!
Ratchet: Aaaargh!

He lunged himself towards Qwark, but he jumps away from him and disappeared.
Then, we see him on a wing of his assigned star fighter, looking down at the
two, laughing vilely.

Qwark: Come and get me, hero!

The ship leaves the scene. However, Clank looked in the direction of a garage,
where a jet fighter is seen parked.

Clank: Perhaps we could obtain a ship in there!
Ratchet: Great idea! Let's go!

They took the ship to the skies, and after plenty of time, they sent Qwark
plummeting down towards another planet, screaming SOS cries as loud as he
could. This left a happy face for Ratchet.

Ratchet: Yes! Qwark is history!
Clank: Despite my earlier criticism, I must admit, your piloting skills are
improving!
Ratchet: I knew you'd come around!
Clank: But that has not helped us locate Drek!
Ratchet: C'mon Clank, can't you just once relax and enjoy a little... success?

He looked in front of him now, and that was where he came across a large dark
purple jet ship.

Ratchet: Hey, you wanna catch Drek? Betcha this baby can do it!

The infobot came out of the cockpit, and displayed another news report. In the
background we see a blue skinned man running around the area, screaming his
head off.

Darla: This is Darla Gratch reporting live from Gorda City. This once peaceful
planet is being torn apart today in an unprovoked attack. It now seems certain
that Surpreme Executive Chairman Drek will not be disuaded in his efforts to
destroy the galaxy for his own selfish needs. All hope certainly seems lost.
Darla Gratch, Channel 2 news.

The infobot finished its message, and went to Clank. Meanwhile, Ratchet looked
down with disappointment.

Ratchet: Umm...
Clank: Yes, I know, it is worse than I expected too.
Ratchet: Look, maybe you were right. This is a lot bigger than you or me. I
was really selfish focusing on Qwark.
Clank: It is not too late to stop Drek.
Ratchet: (starts to lighten up) Hey, yeah! We got this new ship! Let's go get
him!
Clank: Now you are talking!

The two board the ship, and make their way to Oltanis.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| GORDA CITY RUINS |
| Planet Oltanis |
| Code OLT |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On arrival, they faced an electric storm, and Clank was immediately struck by
lightning and sent to the ground. Ratchet faced him with panic, and furiously
tried to shake him conscious.

Ratchet: Clank?! Clank! C'mon! Wake up!

Clank soon came to, but came to the wrong starting conclusion.

Clank: Captain... Qwark?
Ratchet: Ha... no goofball, it's me, Ratchet.
Clank: What... happened?
Ratchet: You got toasted by lightning! This place is having one heck of a
storm. You won't be safe up there. I'll be right back.

This left Clank in his ship as Ratchet started exploring the area. On his
travels, he found the Morph-o-ray...

Ratchet: Sweet!

...and much later on, he saw a familiar figure near a desk in the middle of
the ruins of the city.

Ratchet: Captain Qwark!
Qwark: Where?

He starts looking around, stupidly.

Ratchet: Come on Qwark, I know it's you!
Qwark: Uh... the name's Steve. Pleased to meet you.
Ratchet: Look "Steve", I need to know where Drek is before it's too late!
Qwark: Did you say "too late"?

He got out a board, and started reading from it, with the lack of acting skill
in his speech.

Qwark: Son, it is never too late to acquire the latest in the long line of
quality products from Gadgetron. I have for you, today only, the Gadgetron PDA.
Ratchet: Public Display of Affection?
Qwark: (slightly angrily) No, no, no, Personal Delivery Assistant! (starts
reading from the board again) This device allows you to purchase ammunition
wherever and whenever you want it.
Ratchet: Yeah, how can you tell it works?
Qwark: You can always trust Gadgetron quality or my name's not... uh... Steve.

As he spoke his "name" out, his antennae drooped down. Soon afterwards,
Ratchet paid for it.

Qwark: (starts beaming) Thank you and have a Qwarktastic day!
Ratchet: What did you say?
Qwark: (quietly and in a depressed tone) Nothing.

Ratchet left that area. Much later on, he found a shop, owned by the same blue
person in the news report. He started speaking loudly as he spoke.

Owner: Hey, hey, welcome to my shop! What can I get you!?
Ratchet: (gestures a short figure with one of his hands) I'm looking for Drek!
Owner: Sure! Yeah, we got lots of stuff on sale! After the bombing, no one's
been around to buy anything!
Ratchet: Are you okay?
Owner: Low prices? You bet! I can make you a deal on a busted turborator, a
mangled carboniser or... I got this infobot!
Ratchet: Guess that bombing was pretty loud, huh?
Owner: Oh ho! You are one shrewd negotiator! I tell ya what, I can let this
infobot go for half price!

He paid for it.

Owner: Well, that's about it for me!
Ratchet: Thanks!
Owner: Quit your complaining, I gave you a great deal! Sheesh!

He left the scene, and the infobot showed an advertisement on it.

Announcer: Afraid to go out at night? Afraid to go out during the day? Just
plain afraid? Then you'll need THIS - the Ultra-Mech unlimited! This mech is
the ultimate in personal defense systems! Blarg Industries is now taking
preorders! Get yours before it's too late!

The infobot stopped playing. Ratchet took it by its neck and started smiling.

Ratchet: Now that's what I call serious fire power! Clank's gonna be jealous
if he sees this!

He leaves the area and returns to his ship, where he and Clank left the area.

[Ultimate Surpreme Executive Drek's flagship, Oltanis Orbit]

Meanwhile, Drek is seen with a Blarg Scientist, looking down at a picture of
Gorda City.

Blarg scientist: Well I guess Qwark didn't eliminate them.
Drek: How observant of you.
Blarg scientist: Thank you sir.
Drek: Now if you were only so diligent in doing your OWN job!
Blarg scientist: Yes, sir.
Drek: Since our new planet is nearly finished, we need a plan to remove the
world that is occupying our selected orbit! This time it must be absoltely
foolproof!

There was silence, as the scientist tried to think.

Drek: Time is wasting!

This left more strain on the scientist as he took steps back to the entrance.

Meanwhile, the heroes arrived at the plant. First, they found the Bolt
Grabber in a cooling tower.

Ratchet: All right!

Then, they came across a scientist near a yellow platform.

Scientist: Hmmm... was it Pi over Infinity or...
Ratchet: Hey! You need help fixing that thing?
Scientist: Actually, I'm trying to destroy it.
Clank: Why?
Scientist: I was contracted to re-engineer my enlarging machine to create huge
heavily-armed mechs.
Ratchet: So THAT'S where those mechs came from!
Scientist: Precisely! Had I known Drek was behind this I never would have done
it.
Clank: Is there anything we can do?
Scientist: Well, if you volunteer to be enlarged, you may be able to stop
those mechs long enough for me to sabotage this machine.
Clank: And then you will change me back?
Scientist: Ah, I've never tried that, but in theory, yes.

They stood on the platform, and Clank was enlarged by up to twenty times. This
is the form that is referred to as "Giant Clank". The two went around the
testing area, and got rid of all the mechs.

Scientist: Well done. Now just step into the machine and we'll see what
happens.

Clank stood back on the platform and became small again.

Ratchet: Nice to have you back, I guess.
Scientist: I recaliberated the controls to allow only your specific circuit
pattern.
Clank: Aaah, perfect.
Scientist: I don't know how to thank you two. Maybe this will help!

He got out an infobot, and it started playing an advertisement.

Announer: New! New! New! From Gadgetron, the makers of weapons and other fine
products comes the Hologuise!

(we see a cat-like scientist testing the device for himself)

Announcer: With the hologuise, you can fool robots into thinking you're one of
them!

(screen shows a picture of a hologuise robot and a real robot playing Chess)

Announcer: Match your wits against other robots!

(screen shows several hologuise robots working together)

Announcer: Work on robotic assembly lines!

(screen shows some robots throwing a party)

Announcer: Attend robot parties!

(screen turns back to normal, and the hologuise robot changes back to the cat
scientist)

Announcer: The Hologuise, available only at Gadgetron Headquaters for a
limited time!

(in the background, one of the larger robots gets mad and squashes the cat
with one of his feet)

Announcer: Not to be used for illegal purposes. Wear only in sanctioned areas.
You will not actually become a robot.

The infobot finshed its message, and went over to Clank.

Ratchet: If I can get that thing I'll be able to get past those robot guards!
Clank: Robots are not so easily fooled.
Ratchet: Aaah! What's that?

He points behind Clank, whom turns around at the sight.

Clank: Where?

There was a few moments of silence, before Clank turned round again.

Ratchet: Uh, huh.

The two leave for Kalebo III, the home of the Gadgetron HQ.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


[Ultimate Surpreme Executive Chairman Drek's flagship - Kalebo III orbit]

On deck, Drek was seen looking at a picture of the two in their spaceship.

Drek: This is starting to become annoying.

He turns around and faces three soldiers holding big guns.

Drek: I'm not sure why I bother with you incompetent idiots... alright, I'll
try this one more time.

The three do a threatening pose.

Drek: You are my most elite troops. I'm sending you down to the planet's
surface to destroy those troublemakers! Now go!

They start to leave, but he spoke again.

Drek: Oh, and if you have to destroy Gadgetron to get rid of them, so be it!

Down at the planet's surface, the two stormed through their attacks, reached
the lobby and found the Gadgetron boss.

Ratchet: Excuse me sir, I was wondering if you were concerned about the...
uh... invasion?
Boss: Son, our defences are the best money can buy. Don't give it a second
thought! You ever been on a hoverboard?
Ratchet: Yeah, once or twice.
Boss: I am in search of a hip young star to represent my newest line of
boards. Someone the kids can look up to.
Ratchet: Then I am your man!

In the background, a set of robots riding hoverboard zoom past the window.

Boss: If you can beat my test bots in a race, the job is yours!

The two race against them, and win with ease.

Boss: That was terrific! Now I just need you to say a few words about our hot
new boards!
Ratchet: (shocked) Huh? Now?
Boss: Of course! Just look into that camera right over there and say what
comes naturally. Rolling!

The camera zooms towards Ratchet as he begun his 'words'.

Ratchet: Uh... hi? This is Ratchet for... uh... Gadgetron hoverboards. And if
you... um...
Clank: (interupts) Yo dudes. For the freshest boards in the galaxy, check out
the new XZ88, from Gadgetron! It's so hot, it's cool!
Boss: I think I got the wrong guy... that was... um... something...
Ratchet: Hey, I was thinking... do I get a discount on gadgets now?
Boss: Uh... you have to be with the company for two years before the employee
discount kicks in. However, I can let you have this.

He tossed the Hologuise into Ratchet's hands. He started smiling at it, as he
made his way through the lobby. Later...

Ratchet: Hey, we finally get to meet the help desk girl! I hope she's cute.
Clank: What should that matter?

They enter the office, and find the help desk girl, whom was, in fact... a
robot.

Ratchet: Ohhhh, maaaaaaaan...
Clank: (looks at her, smiling) Uh... so, uh, come here often?
Helpdesk girl: Actually, I work here, so I come here all the time.
Clank: Oh yeah, hehe...
Helpdesk girl: I've been following your progress. Here, shhh, take this. It's
a map-o-matic. It will be very helpful.

Clank holds the map-o-matic in his hands and looks at it.

Clank: I'll see you later.
Helpdesk girl: Bye sweetie.

She waved at them as they left. Back outside...

Clank: I think she likes me.

All that Ratchet could do was shrug. Then, they travelled back to Quartu.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| ROBOT PLANT |
| Planet Quartu (part 2) |
| Code QRT2 |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over there, they tackled the factory with the Hologuise. Deep inside, they
found a computer near a conveyor belt. (hint - the start of the game will be a
help to identify it) Ratchet brought his fist back, and banged the computer
with it.

Rathcet: That should do it!

The computer screen showed a series of words on it.

'Son_'

Clank: Mom?
Ratchet: Oh brother.

'You have done well_'

Clank: I tried, mom.

'There is still more to do_'

Clank: I know.

Suddenly, an infobot came on the conveyor belt.

Ratchet: Hey look, a sister!

The infobot played a message, and it's another one with Drek in it.

Drek: My fellow Blarg, our synthetic world is now fully functional and ready
for habitation. However, there is one small obstacle in our way - this
pathetic lump of a planet.

(camera shows Veldin)

Drek: Due to some blunder of fate, it happens to occupy the Galaxy's most
perfect orbit. But no more!

(camera shows a large laser)

Drek: Behold, the Deplanetizer, the most powerful laser ever created! Soon we
will move the Deplanetizer into place, just above the planet's surface. I will
of course be on hand to press the button that will blow this mudball to
smithereens! No one wil even miss it! See you then!

The infobot finished its message and went to Clank. However, Ratchet stood
there, growling and clinching his fists in a rage.

Clank: Ratchet...? Are you... alright?
Ratchet: He... is going... to PAY!!!
Clank: Excuse me?
Ratchet: It shouldn't have taken me this long to see it! Drek is going to find
out what happens when you mess with MY home!

Silence happened, as Clank looked up, smiling.

Ratchet: What are you smiling at?
Clank: This is the Ratchet I always knew was there.
Ratchet: Okay, if we're gonna do this, we need to get onto Drek's ship. Then
we can find out where he set up that laser!
Clank: I will try to make you proud Mom...

The two leave the scene, then the computer screen displays some last words on
it.

'You already have_'

The two leave for Drek's fleet.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| DREK'S FLEET |
| Veldin Orbit |
| Code DRK |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

While exploring, they find a codebot.

Ratchet: All right!

Then, they made their way to Drek's main ship, destroying obstacles with a jet
fighter on the way. They saw a dark chair, and the two approached it
carefully, Ratchet with his wrench, and Clank with bare hands. The chair swung
around... and showed an infobot. It displayed a TV advert.

Announcer: Tonight on Blarg TV, the adventure we've all been waiting for - the
total annihilation of an entire planet! Witness the power, the destruction and
the nothingness that follows! So join Ultimate Surpreme Executive Chairman
Drek as he pushes the button that ends one world and begins another! Then,
stay tuned for "The Galaxy's Funniest Superhero Bloopers", featuring Captain
Qwark!

The infobot reaches Clank and he puts it away.

Ratchet: Now we know where he is! Let's get him!

The two leave for a return to Veldin.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| KYZIL PLATEAU |
| Planet Veldin (part 2) |
| Code VLD2 |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After much exploring - and turning into Giant Clank - they approached Drek, in
a mech of his own.

Ratchet: Hey, what the...?
Drek: Hehehehe, imbeciles! After all the trouble you've gone through you're
about to die right where you started! (sniff) It's... (wipes his eyes) It's so
poetic...
Ratchet: This is it Clank! Let's get him!

Clank fought Drek and brought his health down by one point.

Drek: Hmmm... you may have been useful for me after all. Too bad you chose the
wrong side!

He brought out a ray that shrunk Clank down to size. This left Ratchet pulling
his weight down too much and the two falling to the battle ground. Then, they
started fighting him with their weapons and took him down to four health
points. They eventually reached a large platform, with the Deplanetizer
underneath them.

Drek: So, it has come to this. Once I step on this ignition switch a countdown
will commence, the end of which signals the destruction of your pitiful world.
Clank: There must be another way to make a home for your people.
Drek: You think that's what this is about? Who do you think polluted our last
world? I did. This is about one thing and one thing only - cash, and lots of
it! You see, I've been paid for every square inch of my new world. Once the
inhabitants move in, I will begin polluting this world as well, then the whole
thing starts all over again. Ah, brilliant.
Clank: Why you... you... evil little...

Drek brought his mech over the button, and pressed it to commence a thirty-
second countdown.

Ratchet: Save it Clank. We have to stop that timer.

He pointed at another button, and they pressed it down with the thruster pack.
Then, they continued fighting him, with the occasional chases, button pressing
and preventing on the way. Eventually, Drek's mech fell onto a platform,
causing the Deplanetiser laser to be lifted up. He struggled to use the
controls to bring the mech back up, but all of a sudden, he was thrusted up to
the surface of the new planet.

Drek: Aaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhh!!!!

He landed on the planet with a thud, and a small white trail of smoke is seen
as he lands. The laser finished with its aim towards the new planet.

Clank: Ratchet?
Ratchet: What's up?

Clank gestured at the button that attempted to cause the destruction of their
world. They looked at that, then the laser, then at the button again.

Ratchet: You know, this time I AM thinking what you're thinking!

They reach the button, and they slammed onto the button. This caused the laser
to charge up, and fire a beam at the planet, causing it to break into
smithereens. Suddenly, boulders started falling down towards them.

Ratchet: This can't be good.

A boulder thrusted them to the side. We focus on Clank, whom is seen heading
over the edge of the platform... but he grabs onto the edge. Ratchet followed,
and grabbed onto his leg.

Ratchet: Whew, that was close!

They remained dangling around for a couple more seconds.

Ratchet: Uh, Clank... you can... heheh... pull us up now.

But he got the resposne that wasn't expected.

Clank: The servos in my arm appear to be... broken.
Ratchet: Broken? As in... fall to our deaths broken?
Clank: Uh... yes.

Clank releases his grip, and they are both sent tumbling towards the ground
below.

Ratchet: AaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

Just when he was about to slam into the ground, Clank used his jets to shunt
Ratchet to safety, and he landed and rebounded three times, giving off 'oofs'
as he landed. Then, the two were seen sitting up, facing each other.

Ratchet: That was close! Thanks!
Clank: My arm appears to be... badly damaged.
Ratchet: Ah, you'll be alright.

Ratchet stood up, left the scene and walked across the bridge to his home.
This left Clank, alone, looking miserable. He stood up, and walked in the
opposite direction. He looked up at the canyon near him, hopeless, with his
injured arm dragging behind him. That was until...

Ratchet: Hey, Tin Can!

Clank turns back with a smile on his face, as Ratchet is seen running back
across the bridge. They stood a couple of inches between them.

Rathcet: Where do you think you're going? We... uh... still need to fix that
arm.

Clank's face lit up, as they both started walking over the bridge, together,
side by side. An adventure was over, as the red skies started to go deeper
into the night.

(Credits run at this point)

| FINALE |
| Hygienator Advert |
| Code FNL |
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The scene is set in the shelter underneath the garage home, where we see both
Ratchet and Clank sitting on brown armchairs. In front of them, we see an
infobot displaying another TV commercial, this time featuring Captain Qwark.

Qwark: Do you have a problem with unwanted hair? Is painful itching in your
never regions causing you undue embarassment? Do you just plain stink? Then
you need this, the Gadgetron Personal Hygienator!

He gestures at a pink device, holding a toothbrush, a drill, shower gel, a
claw-like razor and a small towel on a rack.

Qwark: Hi, I'm Steve... (looks around) Mc... Qwark... and this little baby can
take care of any grooming needs that are just too much trouble for you to
handle yourself! (sniffs one of his armpits) Allow me to demonstrate.

He took hold of the device, and started using it. But physically, we don't see
what he's doing with it.

Qwark: Ah! Ah, yeah, ooh, ouch! Ooh! Oh, mommy!

However, the pair of them started covering their eyes with disgust at the
sight of the demo.

Ratchet: Turn it off! Turn it off!

Clank quickly grabbed the remote, and pressed a button to turn the infobot
off... and the camera.

Step 1: Ingredients
1 pastry for a 9-inch pie crust
+1 egg white, or as needed
+Raspberry Layer:
+1/2 cup frozen raspberries (optional)
+1 tablespoon cornstarch (optional)
+Lemon Filling:
+1 cup white sugar
+1/4 cup cornstarch
+1 cup cold water
+3/4 cup lemon juice, divided
+3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
+1 tablespoon lemon pulp (including zest if desired)
+1 tablespoon butter
+Meringue:
+3 egg whites
+1/3 cup white sugar
Step 2
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Press pie crust into a 9-inch pie pan. Brush crust with enough egg white to coat with a thin layer.
Step 3
Cook in the preheated oven until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove crust from oven and cool. Decrease oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 4
Cook and stir raspberries in a saucepan over medium heat until raspberries start to break down, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir 1 tablespoon cornstarch into raspberries until cornstarch is dissolved and mixture is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon raspberry mixture into pie crust.
Step 5
Combine 1 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup cornstarch in a saucepan; gradually stir in water and 1/2 cup lemon juice until smooth. Stir egg yolks into sugar mixture; bring to a boil. Cook sugar-egg mixture at a boil, stirring constantly, until smooth, about 1 minute. Remove saucepan from heat. Stir lemon pulp, remaining 1/4 cup lemon juice, and butter into sugar-egg mixture; pour over raspberry mixture.
Step 6
Beat 3 egg whites in a small bowl using an electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Gradually beat 1/3 cup white sugar into egg whites until stiff peaks form. Spread egg white mixture over lemon filling, completely sealing egg mixture onto edges of crust.
Step 7
Bake in the preheated oven until meringue is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool pie to room temperature on a wire rack, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate pie until completely chilled, about 3 hours.

Until a purchase is made, iTunes reserves the right to change prices for products offered via the Stores at any time, and the Stores do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price reduction or promotional offering subsequent to purchase.

If a product becomes unavailable following a transaction but prior to download, your sole remedy is likely to be limited to a refund of the price paid for the unavailable product.

(You may reset this selection at any time by clicking Reset Warnings in your Account information). When accessing the Stores on your Apple-branded products running iOS such as an iPad, iPod touch, or iPhone (“iOS Device”), 1-Click is activated for each transaction by tapping the button showing the price of the product, which reveals the Buy button.

GIFTS

Gifts purchased from the Stores may be purchased only for, and redeemed only by, persons in the United Kingdom. Gift recipients must have compatible hardware and parental control settings to utilize some gifts.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

To avoid muscle, joint, or eye strain during your use of the products offered through the Stores, you should always take frequent breaks, and take a longer rest if you experience any soreness, fatigue, or discomfort. A very small percentage of people may experience seizures or blackouts when exposed to flashing lights or patterns, including but not limited to while playing video games or watching videos. Symptoms may include dizziness, nausea, involuntary movements, loss of awareness, altered vision, tingling, numbness, or other discomforts. Consult a doctor before using the products offered through the Stores if you have ever suffered these or similar symptoms, and stop using such products immediately and see a doctor if they occur during your use of such products. Parents should monitor their children’s use of the products offered through the Stores for signs of symptoms.

PRE-ORDERS

By pre-ordering products, you are authorizing the Stores to automatically charge your account and, if you have enabled automatic downloads, download the product when it becomes available. You may cancel your pre-order anytime prior to the time the item becomes available and as set out in our refund policy above.

FAMILY SHARING

Family Sharing allows you to share eligible iTunes, App Store, Mac App Store, and iBooks Store products with up to six members (including yourself) of a “Family.” If you set up or join a Family, you may view the eligible products of other Family members and download such products to your compatible device or computer. You can also choose to hide purchases so that other Family members will not be able to view or download them from you. You can share information such as photos and videos via the Photos app, events via your Family Calendar, reminders via the Reminders app, location information via Find My Friends, and device location via Find My iPhone. Family Sharing is for personal, non-commercial use only. iTunes and iCloud accounts are required; iOS 8 and/or OS X Yosemite are required to start and join a Family. Certain transactions and features may not be compatible with earlier software and may require a software upgrade. If you join a Family, the features of Family Sharing are enabled on your compatible devices and computers automatically.

The “Organiser” of a Family can invite other members to participate in the Family. The Organiser must be 18 years or older and must have an eligible payment method registered with iTunes. If you are an Organiser, you represent that you are the parent or legal guardian of any Family member under age 13. The Organiser's payment method is used to pay for any purchase initiated by a Family member in excess of any store credit in such initiating Family member’s account. Family members are acting as agents for the Organiser when the Organiser's payment method is used. Products are associated with the account of the Family member who initiated the transaction. BY INVITING FAMILY MEMBERS TO JOIN A FAMILY, THE ORGANISER AGREES THAT ALL CHARGES FOR PURCHASES INITIATED BY FAMILY MEMBERS ARE AUTHORISED BY AND ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE ORGANISER, EVEN IF THE ORGANISER WAS UNAWARE OF ANY PARTICULAR TRANSACTION, IF A FAMILY MEMBER EXCEEDED HIS OR HER AUTHORITY AS GRANTED BY THE ORGANISER, OR IF MULTIPLE FAMILY MEMBERS INITIATE PURCHASES FOR THE SAME PRODUCT. THE ORGANISER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR COMPLIANCE WITH ANY AGREEMENT WITH ITS PAYMENT METHOD PROVIDER, AND ASSUMES ALL RISK IN THE EVENT THAT SHARING ACCESS TO SUCH PAYMENT METHOD LIMITS ANY PROTECTION OFFERED BY THE PAYMENT METHOD PROVIDER. The Organiser can change the payment method on file at any time. A record of the purchase will be sent to the initiating Family member and the Organiser, even if the purchase is hidden by the Family member; please use Report a Problem on your receipt if you or your Family members do not recognise charges on your receipt or payment method statement.

The Organiser can use the Ask to Buy function to require children under the age of 18 to obtain permission from the Organiser, and/or other adults designated by the Organiser, to download free or paid products before a purchase or download commences. Products downloaded from Family members and products acquired via redemption codes are not subject to Ask to Buy. If you are an Organiser, you represent that you and/or any adult designee is the parent or legal guardian of any Family member for whom Ask to Buy is activated. Ask to Buy is optimized for iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite; product purchase or download requests from earlier software may present users with an alternative permission process or prevent purchases altogether, and may require a software upgrade. iTunes is not responsible for any harm resulting from a delay in Ask to Buy approvals or denials.

The Organiser may remove any Family member from the Family, which will terminate that Family member's ability to initiate authorised purchases on the Organiser's payment method, and that Family Member’s ability to view and share other Family members' products and information. When a Family member leaves or is removed from a Family, or the Organiser's Apple ID is terminated for any reason, the remaining Family members may no longer be able to view or download the departing member’s products or information, or access products previously downloaded from the departing Family member, including purchases made on the Organiser's payment method while the departing member was part of the Family. Similarly, if you leave a Family, you may no longer be able to view or download the products or information of the other Family members, and products that you downloaded from other Family members while a member of the Family may no longer be accessible. If you have made In-App Purchases from an app originally purchased by a departed Family member or downloaded from a Family member and you no longer belong to the Family, you need to purchase the app yourself and restore the In-App Purchases to regain access to them; please review the developer’s policies and the section of this Agreement entitled “In-App Purchases” before buying In-App Purchases. Because personal accounts for users under age 13 can only be created as part of Family Sharing, deleting such an account in order to remove it from the Family will terminate that Family member’s Apple ID and his or her ability to access any Apple services that require an Apple ID or any content associated with that Apple ID.

You can only belong to one Family at a time, and may join any Family no more than twice per year. You can change the store account you associate with a Family no more than once every 90 days. All Family members must use the same iTunes Store country or region. Music, movies, TV shows and books can be downloaded from the iTunes Store on up to 10 devices per account, only five of which can be computers; eligible apps can be downloaded to any devices the Family member owns or controls. Not all products, including In-App Purchases, content that is not available for re-download, subscriptions, and some previously purchased apps, are eligible for Family Sharing. Apple reserves the right to disband a Family in accordance with the “Termination” section of this Agreement.

ELECTRONIC CONTRACTING

Your use of the Stores includes the ability to enter into agreements and/or to make transactions electronically. You acknowledge that your electronic submissions constitute your agreement and intent to be bound by and to pay for such agreements and transactions. Your agreement and intent to be bound by electronic submissions applies to all records relating to all transactions you enter into on this site, including notices of cancellation, policies, contracts and applications. In order to access and retain your electronic records, you may be required to have certain hardware and software, which are your sole responsibility.

NON-APPLE DEVICES

If you sign up for an Account or use Services and/or Stores covered by this Agreement on a non-Apple-branded device or computer, you may have access to only a limited set of Account or Services and/or Stores functionality. As a condition of accessing your Account or Services and/or Stores on a non-Apple-branded device or computer, you agree to all relevant terms and conditions found in this Agreement, including, without limitation, all requirements for use of an Account or Services and/or Stores, limitations on use, availability, disclaimers of warranties, rules regarding your content and conduct, and termination. Terms found in this Agreement relating to features or Services not available for non-Apple-branded device or computer users will not be applicable to you. These include, for example, the App Store. If you later choose to access your Account or a Service from an Apple-branded device or Apple-branded computer, you agree that all of the terms and conditions contained herein apply to your use of such Account or Services and/or Stores.

iTunes is not responsible for typographic errors.

B. ITUNES STORE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

THIS LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND ITUNES SARL. ("ITUNES") GOVERNS YOUR USE OF THE ITUNES STORE SERVICE (THE “SERVICE”).

THE ITUNES STORE SERVICE

iTunes is the provider of the Service, which permits you to access, purchase or rent a licence for digital content ("iTunes Products") for end user use only under the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement. iTunes is not the provider of the iTunes application or of the iPad, iPod or iPhone.

REQUIREMENTS FOR USE OF THE SERVICE

Only persons aged 13 years or older can create accounts. Accounts for persons under 13 years old can be created by a parent or legal guardian using Family Sharing. Children under the age of 18 should review this Agreement with their parent or legal guardian to ensure that the child and parent or legal guardian understand it.

The Service is available to you only in the United Kingdom. You agree not to use or attempt to use the Service from outside this location. iTunes may use technologies to verify your compliance.

Use of the Service requires compatible devices, Internet access, and certain software (fees may apply); may require periodic updates; and may be affected by the performance of these factors. High-speed Internet access is strongly recommended for regular use and is required for Film Rentals. The latest version of the iTunes software is recommended to access the Service and may be required for certain transactions or features and to download iTunes Products previously purchased or acquired from the Service. You agree that meeting these requirements, which may change from time to time, is your responsibility. The Service is not part of any other product or offering, and no purchase or obtaining of any other product shall be construed to represent or guarantee you access to the Service.

YOUR ACCOUNT

As a registered user of the Service, you may establish an account ("Account"). Don’t reveal your Account information to anyone else. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Account and for all activities that occur on or through your Account, and you agree to immediately notify iTunes of any security breach of your Account. iTunes shall not be responsible for any losses arising out of the unauthorised use of your Account.

In order to purchase and download iTunes Products from the Service, you must enter your Apple ID and password or use Touch ID to authenticate your Account for transactions. Once you have authenticated your Account using your Apple ID and password, you will not need to authenticate again for fifteen minutes on your computer or iOS Device; you can choose to allow your computer or Apple TV to remember your password to remain authenticated. During this time, you will be able to purchase and download iTunes Products without re-entering your password. You can turn off the ability to make iTunes Product transactions or change settings to require a password for every transaction by adjusting the settings on your computer, iOS Device, or Apple TV. For more information, please see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1904 and http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4213.

You agree to provide accurate and complete information when you register with, and as you use, the Service ("Registration Data"), and you agree to update your Registration Data to keep it accurate and complete. You agree that iTunes may store and use the Registration Data you provide for use in maintaining and billing fees to your Account.

AUTOMATIC DELIVERY AND DOWNLOADING PREVIOUS PURCHASES

When you first acquire music, purchased (i.e. not rented) movie, TV show and music video iTunes Products (collectively, “iTunes Eligible Content”), you may elect to automatically receive (“auto-download”) copies of such iTunes Eligible Content on additional compatible iOS Devices (except for purchased movies and TV show iTunes Products) and iTunes-authorized computers with compatible software by associating such iOS Devices and computers subject to the association rules below (each, an “Associated Device”). For each Associated Device, you may specify which type of iTunes Eligible Content, if any, may be auto-downloaded to it. On an Associated Device that is capable of receiving push notifications (“Push-Enabled”), including iOS Devices, the iTunes Eligible Content will auto-download to that Associated Device when it has an Internet connection; on an Associated Device that is not Push-Enabled, iTunes Eligible Content will automatically appear in the download queue and you may manually initiate the download within iTunes.

As an accommodation to you, subsequent to acquiring iTunes Eligible Content, you may download certain of such previously-acquired iTunes Eligible Content onto any Associated Device. Some iTunes Eligible Content that you previously acquired may not be available for subsequent download at any given time, and iTunes shall have no liability to you in such event. As you may not be able to subsequently download certain previously-acquired iTunes Eligible Content, once you download an item of iTunes Eligible Content, it is your responsibility not to lose, destroy, or damage it, and you may want to back it up.

Association of Associated Devices is subject to the following terms:

(i) You may auto-download iTunes Eligible Content or download previously-acquired iTunes Eligible Content from an Account on up to 10 Associated Devices, provided no more than 5 are iTunes-authorized computers.

(ii) An Associated Device can be associated with only one Account at any given time.

(iii) You may switch an Associated Device to a different Account only once every 90 days.

(iv) You may download previously-acquired free content onto an unlimited number of devices while it is free on the iTunes Service, but on no more than 5 iTunes-authorized computers.

An Apple TV is not an “Associated Device.” However, TV show iTunes Products and purchased (i.e. not rented) movies iTunes Products may be played back on compatible Apple TVs, provided that you may only play back any such TV show or movie on a limited number of Apple TVs at the same time.

Some pieces of iTunes Eligible Content may be large, and significant data charges may result from delivery of such iTunes Eligible Content over a data connection.

ITUNES MATCH

iTunes Match permits you to remotely access your matched or uploaded songs, and music videos you have purchased with your Account, along with related metadata, playlists, and other information about your iTunes Library (“iTunes Match Content”).

You may subscribe to iTunes Match for an annual fee. You must have a valid credit card on file with iTunes to subscribe. The subscription is non-refundable (except as required by applicable law or as set out in our refund policy above), and will automatically renew for one-year periods until you cancel. Your account will be charged no more than 24 hours prior to the expiration of the current subscription period. You may cancel automatic renewal by adjusting the iTunes Store account settings on your computer. You will no longer be able to access your iTunes Match Content from iTunes Match after the end of your subscription period.

iTunes Match works with libraries that contain up to 100,000 songs which are either (i) not currently available on the iTunes Service, or (ii) not purchased from the iTunes Service with your Account. Songs that do not meet certain criteria, or that are not authorized for your computer are not eligible for iTunes Match.

In order to set up and use iTunes Match, information about the media in your iTunes library, your operating system and hardware identifiers, will be collected and associated with your Account on iTunes’ servers. iTunes Match automatically scans the song files and collect other information that may be used to identify media in your iTunes library, such as the names of songs, song artists or song durations. iTunes Match will use this information to match songs to those currently available on the iTunes Store, and will make matched songs available to you in a format then available on the iTunes Store. If the song is not successfully matched, your copy of the song will be uploaded to iTunes in the same format or a format determined by iTunes. iTunes reserves the right to limit types of content uploaded (for example, excessively large files). Matched or uploaded songs and related metadata will be available for access from an Associated Device that has been enabled for iTunes Match. Association of Associated Devices for iTunes Match is subject to the same terms as Automatic Delivery and Downloading Previous Purchases, and uploaded or matched songs and related information are deemed to be “iTunes Eligible Content.” You may also access iTunes Match Content from compatible Apple TVs, provided that you may only do so on a limited number of Apple TVs at the same time.

When you use iTunes Match, iTunes will log information such as the tracks you play, stop or skip, the devices you use, and the time and duration of playback.

You hereby agree to use iTunes Match only for lawfully acquired content. Any use for illegitimate content infringes the rights of others and may subject you to civil and criminal penalties, including possible monetary damages, for copyright infringement.

iTunes Match is provided on an “AS IS” basis and may contain errors or inaccuracies that could cause failures, corruption or loss of data and/or information, including music, playlist, and play history, from your computer or device and from peripherals (including, without limitation, servers and other computers) connected thereto. You should back up all data and information on your computer or device and any peripherals prior to using iTunes Match. You expressly acknowledge and agree that all use of iTunes Match is at your sole risk. To the extent permitted by law, iTunes shall have no liability with respect to your use of iTunes Match, including the inability to access matched or uploaded content.

• Create personalized playlists for you from your iTunes library.

• Provide you with recommendations regarding media and other products and services that you may wish to purchase or acquire.

• Provide recommendations regarding products and services to other users.

At all times your information will be treated in accordance with Apple’s Privacy Policy.

Once you opt in to the Genius feature, you will be able to create Genius playlists on Genius-capable devices.

If you prefer that we do not collect and use information from your iTunes library in this manner, you should not enable the Genius feature. You can revoke your opt-in choice at any time by turning off the Genius feature from the Store menu in iTunes on your computer or turning off Genius in the Settings on your device. After you opt out, iTunes will no longer send information about your iTunes library to Apple. If you have elected to share your library from multiple devices, you need to turn off the Genius feature from each device.

C. MAC APP STORE, APP STORE, APP STORE FOR APPLE TV AND IBOOKS STORE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

THIS LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND ITUNES SARL ("ITUNES") GOVERNS YOUR USE OF THE MAC APP STORE, APP STORE, APP STORE FOR APPLE TV AND IBOOKS STORE (“STORES”) AND THE PURCHASE OF LICENCES FROM THEM, WHICH ARE SOLD TO YOU BY ITUNES.

THE MAC APP STORE, APP STORE, APP STORE FOR APPLE TV AND IBOOKS STORE

iTunes is the provider of the Stores that permit you to purchase from iTunes licences to software products from the App Store, App Store for Apple TV and Mac App Store (together, “App Store Products”) and digital book content (the “iBooks Store Products”) for end user use only under the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement. For App Store Products, end users may be individuals acting in their own capacities, or commercial enterprises or educational institutions. App Store Products and iBooks Store Products shall be referred to together as “Products”.

REQUIREMENTS FOR USE OF THE STORES

Only persons aged 13 years or older can create accounts. Accounts for persons under 13 years can be created by a parent or legal guardian using Family Sharing. Children under the age of 18 should review this Agreement with their parent or legal guardian to ensure that the child and the parent or legal guardian understand it.

The Stores are available to you only in the United Kingdom. You agree not to use or attempt to use the Stores from outside this location. iTunes may use technologies to verify your compliance.

Use of the Stores requires compatible devices, Internet access, and certain software (fees may apply); may require periodic updates and/or on-demand download of content based on app usage and resource constraints (which may use cellular data); and may be affected by the performance of these factors. High-speed Internet access is strongly recommended. The latest versions of required software (including, but not limited to, iOS, iTunes and Mac App Store software) are recommended to access the Stores and may be required for certain transactions or features and to download Products previously purchased or acquired from the Stores. You agree that these requirements, which may change from time to time, are your responsibility. The Stores are not part of any other product or offering, and no purchase or obtaining of any other product shall be construed to represent or guarantee you access to the Stores.

YOUR ACCOUNT

As a registered user of the Stores, you may establish an account ("Account"). Don’t reveal your Account information to anyone else. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Account, and for all activities that occur on or through your Account, and you agree to immediately notify iTunes of any security breach of your Account. iTunes shall not be responsible for any losses arising out of the unauthorised use of your Account.

In order to purchase and download App Store Products from the Stores, you must enter your Apple ID and password or use Touch ID to authenticate your Account for transactions. Once you have authenticated your Account using your Apple ID and password, you will not need to authenticate again for fifteen minutes; during this time, you will be able to purchase and download App Store Products without re-entering your password. You may also choose to require entry of your password for each transaction and, separately to have your device remember your password for free transactions only. You can turn off the ability to make App Store Product transactions or change settings to require a password for every App and Book Product transaction by adjusting the settings on your device. For more information, please see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1904 and http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4213.

You agree to provide accurate and complete information when you register with, and as you use, the Stores ("Registration Data"), and you agree to update your Registration Data to keep it accurate and complete. You agree that iTunes may store and use the Registration Data you provide for use in maintaining and billing fees to your Account.

AUTOMATIC DELIVERY AND DOWNLOADING PREVIOUS PURCHASES

When you first acquire Products (excluding products acquired from the Mac App Store) through the Stores (collectively, “Eligible Content”), you may elect to automatically receive (“auto-download”) copies of such Eligible Content on additional compatible Apple-branded hardware with compatible software by associating such hardware subject to the association rules below (each, an “Associated Device”). For each Associated Device, you may specify which type of Eligible Content, if any, may be auto-downloaded to it. On an Associated Device that is capable of receiving push notifications (“Push-Enabled”), including iOS Devices, the Products will auto-download to that Associated Device when it has an Internet connection; on an Associated Device that is not Push-Enabled, including those running on the Windows operating system, Eligible Content will automatically appear in the download queue and you may manually initiate the download within iTunes.

As an accommodation to you, subsequent to acquiring Eligible Content, you may download certain of such previously acquired Eligible Content onto any Associated Device. Some Eligible Content that you previously acquired may not be available for subsequent download at any given time, and iTunes shall have no liability to you in such event. As you may not be able to subsequently download certain previously acquired Eligible Content, once you download an item of Eligible Content, it is your responsibility not to lose, destroy, or damage it, and you may want to back it up.

Association of Associated Devices is subject to the following terms:

(i) You may auto-download Eligible Content or download previously acquired Eligible Content from an Account on up to 10 Associated Devices, provided no more than 5 are iTunes-authorised computers.

(ii) An Associated Device can be associated with only one Account at any given time.

(iii) You may switch an Associated Device to a different Account only one every 90 days.

(iv) You may download previously acquired free content onto an unlimited number of devices while it is free on the Stores, but no more than 5 iTunes-authorised computers.

The above terms (i) to (iv) do not apply to App Store Products.

Some pieces of Eligible Content may be large or may initiate the ongoing delivery of content based on usage and resource constraints, and significant data charges may result from delivery of such Eligible Content over a data connection.

AUTOMATIC DELIVERY OF UPDATES

Your device or computer will periodically check with the App Store, App Store for Apple TV and Mac App Store for updates to the apps on your device or computer and, if available, the update may automatically download and install. Certain App Store Products may also download additional content, such as game levels or chapters, on an on-going basis based on usage and resource constraints. You agree that iTunes, through the App Store, App Store for Apple TV and Mac App Store, may automatically download and install updates onto your device(s) or computer. You can turn off automatic updates altogether at any time by changing the automatic updates settings on your device or computer. To prevent the download of on-demand content within an App Store Product, delete the App Store Product from your device.

APP BUNDLES

Some App Store Products may contain multiple items (“App Bundles”). The price displayed with an App Bundle is the price you will be charged upon purchasing the App Bundle. The App Bundle price may be reduced to account for App Store Products you have already purchased or acquired, but may include a minimum charge to complete the App Bundle.

PRIVACY

Except as otherwise stated in this Agreement, the Stores are subject to Apple's Privacy Policy at http://www.apple.com/uk/privacy/.

USE OF PRODUCTS AND THE STORES

iTunes is selling you a licence to use the Products. Once purchased from iTunes, that licence forms a binding agreement directly between you and the publisher of that Product (the "Publisher") governing your use of that Product. You understand that the Stores and certain Products include a security framework using technology that protects digital information and limits your use of Products to certain usage rules (“Security Framework”) established by iTunes and the Publishers and that, whether or not Products are limited by security technology, you shall use Products in compliance with the applicable usage rules established by iTunes and the Publishers (“Usage Rules”), and that any other use of the Products may constitute a copyright infringement. Any security technology is an inseparable part of the Products. iTunes reserves the right to modify the Usage Rules for future purchases from the Stores at any time. However, such changes will not apply to Products that you have already purchased. Any change to the Usage Rules will be communicated to you. In the event that you refuse to accept the new Usage Rules, you will no longer be able to acquire Products from the Stores.

CONTENT SECURITY

You agree not to violate, circumvent, reverse-engineer, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise tamper with any element of the Security Framework—or to attempt or assist another person to do so. Usage Rules may be controlled and monitored by iTunes for compliance purposes, and iTunes reserves the right to enforce the Usage Rules without notice to you.

STORE SECURITY

You agree not to access the Stores by any means other than through use of software provided by Apple Inc. or its affiliated group companies (“Apple”) for accessing the Stores. You agree not to modify the software that is provided by Apple to access the Stores in any manner or form, or to use modified versions of the software, for any purposes including obtaining unauthorised access to the Stores. You shall not access or attempt to access an Account that you are not authorised to access. Violations of system or network security may result in civil or criminal liability.

The delivery of Products does not transfer to you any promotional use rights in the Products.

You acknowledge that some aspects of the Stores, Products, and administration of the Usage Rules entails the ongoing involvement of iTunes notwithstanding that iTunes is not party to the licence between you and the Publishers of Products.

SUBMISSIONS TO THE STORES

The Stores may offer interactive features that allow you to submit materials (including links to third-party content) on areas of the Stores accessible and viewable by other users of the Stores and the public. You agree that any use by you of such features, including any materials submitted by you, shall be your sole responsibility, shall not infringe or violate the rights of any other party or violate any laws, contribute to or encourage infringing or otherwise unlawful conduct, or otherwise be obscene. You also agree that you have obtained all necessary rights and licenses. You agree to provide accurate and complete information in connection with your submission of any materials on the Stores. You hereby grant iTunes a worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free, nonexclusive license to use such materials as part of the Stores and/or in relation to Products, without any compensation or obligation to you. iTunes reserves the right to not post or publish any materials, and to remove or edit any material, at any time in its sole discretion without notice or liability. You may not submit reviews or ratings for App Store Products downloaded using a promotional Content Code.

iTunes has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any materials submitted by you or otherwise available on the Stores, to investigate any reported or apparent violation of this Agreement, and to take any action that iTunes in its sole discretion deems appropriate, including, without limitation, termination hereunder or under Apple’s Copyright Policy (http://www.apple.com/legal/copyright.html).

THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS

Certain content, Products, and services available via the Stores may include materials from third parties. iTunes may provide links to third-party websites as a convenience to you. You agree that iTunes is not responsible for examining or evaluating the content or accuracy and iTunes does not warrant and will not have any liability or responsibility for any third-party materials or websites, or for any other materials, products, or services of third parties. You agree that you will not use any third-party materials in a manner that would infringe or violate the rights of any other party and that iTunes is not in any way responsible for any such use by you.

OBJECTIONABLE MATERIAL

You understand that by using the Stores, you may encounter material that you may deem to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable, and that such content may or may not be identified as having explicit material. Nevertheless, you agree to use the Stores at your sole risk and iTunes shall have no liability to you for material that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable. Product types and descriptions are provided for convenience, and you agree that iTunes does not guarantee their accuracy.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

You agree that the Stores, including but not limited to Products, graphics, user interface, audio clips, editorial content, and the scripts and software used to implement the Stores, contain proprietary information and material that is owned by iTunes and/or the Publishers, and is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws, including but not limited to copyright. You agree that you will not use such proprietary information or materials in any way whatsoever except for use of the Stores in compliance with this Agreement. No portion of the Stores may be reproduced in any form or by any means, except as expressly permitted in these terms. You agree not to modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute, or create derivative works based on the Stores in any manner, and you shall not exploit the Stores in any unauthorised way whatsoever, including, but not limited to, by trespass or burdening network capacity.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, iTunes and the Publishers reserve the right to change, suspend, remove, or disable access to any Products, content, or other materials comprising a part of the Stores at any time without notice. In no event will iTunes be liable for making these changes. iTunes may also impose limits on the use of or access to certain features or portions of the Stores, in any case and without notice or liability. Removal of Products from the Stores will not affect Products that you have already acquired from the Stores.

iTunes and/or its licensors own the copyright in the Stores, including the compilation of content, postings, links to other Internet resources, and descriptions of those resources. The use of any part of the Stores, except for use of the Stores as permitted herein, is strictly prohibited and infringes on the intellectual property rights of others and may subject you to civil and criminal penalties, including possible monetary damages, for copyright infringement.

Apple, the Apple logo, iTunes, App Store, and other Apple trademarks, service marks, graphics, and logos used in connection with the Stores are trademarks or registered trademarks of Apple Inc. in the U.S. and/or other countries. Other trademarks, service marks, graphics, and logos used in connection with the Stores may be the trademarks of their respective owners. You are granted no right or license with respect to any of the aforesaid trademarks and any use of such trademarks.

TERMINATION

If you fail, or iTunes has strong grounds to believe that you have failed, to comply with any of the provisions of this Agreement, iTunes, at its sole discretion, without notice to you may: (i) terminate this Agreement and/or your Account, and you will remain liable for all amounts due under your Account up to and including the date of termination; and/or (ii) cause the license to the software to be terminated; and/or (iii) preclude access to the Stores (or any part thereof).

iTunes reserves the right to modify, suspend, or discontinue the Stores (or any part or content thereof) at any time and iTunes will not be liable to you or to any third party should it exercise such rights.

FURTHER MAC APP STORE AND APP STORE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

LICENSE OF MAC APP STORE AND APP STORE PRODUCTS

iTunes is selling you a licence to use the software products made available through the Mac App Store and App Store (collectively, the “App Store Products”). There are two (2) categories of App Store Products, as follows: (i) those App Store Products that have been developed by Apple, and which are licensed to you by iTunes (“Apple Products”); and (ii) those App Store Products that have been developed, and are licensed to you, by a third-party developer (“Third-Party Products”). The category of a particular App Store Product (Apple Product or Third-Party Product) is identified on the Mac App Store Application or App Store application.

Your license to each App Store Product is subject to the Licensed Application End User License Agreement set forth below, and you agree that such terms will apply unless the App Store Product is covered by a valid end user license agreement entered into between you and the publisher of that App Store Product (the “Publisher”), in which case the Publisher’s end user license agreement will apply to that App Store Product. The Publisher reserves all rights in and to the App Store Product not expressly granted to you.

You acknowledge that the license to each Apple Product that you obtain through the Mac App Store or App Store, or you associate with your Account, is a binding agreement between you and iTunes. You acknowledge that: once you acquire a Third-Party Product from iTunes, you are entering into a binding agreement directly with the Publisher of that Third-Party Product governing your use of that Third-Party Product; and iTunes is not a party to the license between you and the Publisher with respect to that Third-Party Product. The Publisher of each Third-Party Product is solely responsible for that Third-Party Product, the content therein, any warranties to the extent that such warranties have not been disclaimed, and any claims that you or any other party may have relating to that Third-Party Product.

You acknowledge and agree that iTunes and its affiliates are third-party beneficiaries of the Licensed Application End User License Agreement or the Publisher’s end user license agreement, as the case may be, for each Third-Party Product. You also agree that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the license to any such Third-Party Product, iTunes will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce such license against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof.

IN-APP PURCHASES

Certain App Store Products may include functionality that enables you to receive additional services, or licenses to additional functionality or content for use within the App Store Product ("In App Purchases"). In App Purchases that are consumed during the use of the App Store Product (for example, virtual ammunition) cannot be transferred among devices; can be downloaded only once; and after being downloaded, cannot be replaced. Once a consumable In App Purchase is acquired and received by you, iTunes shall be without liability to you in the event of any loss, destruction, or damage. All In-App Purchases are deemed App Store Products, and In App Purchases received within Third-Party Products are deemed Third-Party Products, and treated as such, for purposes of these terms and conditions.

You must authenticate to acquire In-App Purchases separately from any authentication to obtain App Store Products by entering your password when prompted, but once you have authenticated to obtain an In-App Purchase, you will be able to acquire additional In-App Purchases for fifteen minutes without re-entering your password. You can turn off the ability to acquire In-App Purchases on your iOS Device by going to your Settings, selecting “General” and then selecting the “Restrictions” tab, as outlined at http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4213.

IN-APP SUBSCRIPTIONS

Certain App Store Products may include functionality that enables you to acquire content on a subscription basis (“In-App Subscriptions”). In-App Subscriptions will automatically renew for the applicable time period you have selected and, where applicable, your Account will be charged no more than 24-hours prior to the expiration of the current In-App Subscription period. You may cancel automatic renewal of paid In-App Subscriptions by selecting Manage App Subscriptions in your Account and selecting the subscription you want to modify. In the event of a price increase, the In App Subscription may continue at the new price upon prior notice to you unless you have cancelled automatic renewal. You may cancel free In-App Subscriptions by deleting the App Store Product from your device. Certain paid In-App Subscriptions may offer a free trial period prior to charging your Account. If you decide you do not want to purchase the In App Subscription, turn off auto-renewal in your Account settings during the free trial period. Certain In-App Subscriptions may be designated as magazine and newspaper products. You should review additional information about the magazine and newspaper subscription offer at the point of sale within the App Store Product. We may ask for your permission to provide the name, email address and postcode listed in your Account to the Publisher of such magazine and newspaper subscriptions so that the Publisher can send you marketing messages about its own products in accordance with its privacy policy. Once the Publisher has this information, it will be treated in accordance with the Publisher's publicly posted privacy policy. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of the Publisher before agreeing to give it your personal information. For more information, please review the Publisher's privacy policy or contact the Publisher directly. Refunds are available as set out in our refund policy above; no other refunds, returns or cancellations after purchase.

MAC APP STORE PRODUCT USAGE RULES

Except as otherwise set forth herein,

For example, a single employee may use a Mac App Store Product on both the employee’s desktop Mac Computer and laptop Mac Computer, or multiple students may serially use the Mac App Store Product on a single Mac Computer located at a resource centre or library. For the sake of clarity, each Mac Computer used serially by multiple users requires a separate licence.

(iii) Use of Mac App Store Products may require sign-in with the Apple ID used to download the Mac App Store Product from the Mac App Store. Mac App Store Products can be updated through the Mac App Store only.

For example, a single employee may use an App Store Product on both the employee's iPhone and iPad, or multiple students may serially use an App Store Product on a single iPad located at a resource centre or library. For the sake of clarity, each iOS or tvOS Device used serially or collectively by multiple users requires a separate licence.

(iii) You shall be able to store App Store Products from up to five different Accounts at a time on a compatible iOS or tvOS Device.

(iv) You shall be able to manually sync App Store Products from at least one iTunes-authorised device to iOS Devices that have manual sync mode, provided that the App Store Product is associated with an Account on the primary iTunes-authorised device, where the primary iTunes-authorised device is the one that was first synced with the iOS Device or the one that you subsequently designate as primary using the iTunes application.

MAC APP STORE AND APP STORE PRODUCT MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT

iTunes will be responsible for providing any maintenance and support services with respect to the Apple Products only, as specified in the Licensed Application End User License Agreement or the separate end user license agreement, as the case may be, or as required under applicable law. The Publisher of any Third-Party Product will be solely responsible for providing maintenance and support services with respect to that Product, as specified in the Licensed Application End User License Agreement or the Publisher end user license agreement, as the case may be, or as required under applicable law.

LICENSED APPLICATION END USER LICENCE AGREEMENT

The Mac App Store Products, App Store Products and App Store for Apple TV Products (collectively, “App Store Products”) made available through the Mac App Store, App Store and App Store for Apple TV (collectively, the “App Stores”) are licensed, not sold, to you.

Your licence to any Apple Product under this Standard EULA or separate end user licence agreement is granted by iTunes, and your licence to any Third-Party Product under this Standard EULA or separate end user licence agreement is granted by the Publisher of that Third-Party Product. Any App Store Product that is subject to the licence granted under this Standard EULA is referred to herein as the “Licensed Application”. Publisher or iTunes as applicable (the “Licensor”) reserves all rights in and to the Licensed Application not expressly granted to you under this Standard EULA.

a. Scope of License: This licence granted to you for the Licensed Application by Licensor is limited to a nontransferable license to use the Licensed Application on any Apple-branded products running iOS (including but not limited to iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch) (“iOS Devices”), Mac OS X (“Mac Computers”) Apple Watch, and Apple TV, as applicable (collectively, “Apple Devices”) that you own or control and as permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in the Mac App Store, App Store and iBooks Store Terms and Conditions (the “Usage Rules”). This licence does not allow you to use the Licensed Application on any Apple Device that you do not own or control, and, except as provided in the Usage Rules, you may not distribute or make the Licensed Application available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time. You may not rent, lease, lend, sell, transfer, redistribute, or sublicense the Licensed Application and, if you sell your Apple Device to a third party, you must remove the Licensed Application from the Apple Device before doing so. You may not copy (except as expressly permitted by this licence and the Usage Rules), decompile, reverse-engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the Licensed Application, any updates, or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent that any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law or to the extent as may be permitted by the licensing terms governing use of any open-sourced components included with the Licensed Application). Any attempt to do so is a violation of the rights of the Licensor and its licensors. If you breach this restriction, you may be subject to prosecution and damages.

The terms of this licence will govern any upgrades provided by Licensor that replace and/or supplement the original Licensed Application, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate licence in which case the terms of that license will govern.

b. Consent to Use of Data: You agree that Licensor may collect and use technical data and related information—including but not limited to technical information about your device, system and application software, and peripherals—that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support, and other services to you (if any) related to the Licensed Application. Licensor may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not personally identify you, to improve its products or to provide services or technologies to you.

c. Termination. The licence is effective until terminated by you or Licensor. Your rights under this licence will terminate automatically without notice from the Licensor if you fail to comply with any term(s) of this licence. Upon termination of the licence, you shall cease all use of the Licensed Application and destroy all copies, full or partial, of the Licensed Application.

d. Services; Third-Party Materials. The Licensed Application may enable access to Licensor’s and/or third-party services and websites (collectively and individually, "External Services"). Use of the External Services requires Internet access and use of certain External Services requires you to accept additional terms.

You understand that by using any of the External Services, you may encounter content that may be deemed offensive, indecent, or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as having explicit language, and that the results of any search or entering of a particular URL may automatically and unintentionally generate links or references to objectionable material. Nevertheless, you agree to use the External Services at your sole risk and that neither the Licensor nor its agents shall have any liability to you for content that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable.

Certain External Services may display, include or make available content, data, information, applications or materials from third parties (“Third Party Materials”) or provide links to certain third party websites. By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that neither the Licensor nor its agents are responsible for examining or evaluating the content, accuracy, completeness, timeliness, validity, copyright compliance, legality, decency, quality or any other aspect of such Third Party Materials or websites. The Licensor, its agents, officers, affiliates and subsidiaries do not warrant or endorse and do not assume and will not have any liability or responsibility to you or any other person for any External Services, Third Party Materials or websites, or for any other materials, products, or services of third parties. Third Party Materials and links to other websites are provided solely as a convenience to you.

Before executing any securities transaction based on information obtained through the External Services, you should consult with a financial or securities professional who is legally qualified to give financial or securities advice in your country or region. Medical information displayed by any App Store Product or External Service is for general information purposes only and should not be relied upon for medical diagnostic or treatment advice except as directed by a doctor. You should consult with a medical professional before relying on medical information available in an App Store Product.

Neither the Licensor, its agents nor any of its content providers guarantees the availability, accuracy, completeness, reliability, or timeliness of stock information, location data or any other data displayed by any External Services.

You agree that the External Services contain proprietary content, information and material that is owned by Licensor and/or its agents or licensors, and is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws, including but not limited to copyright, and that you will not use such proprietary content, information or materials in any way whatsoever except for permitted use of the External Services or in any manner that is inconsistent with the terms of this Standard EULA or that infringes any intellectual property rights of a third party, iTunes or Apple. No portion of the External Services may be reproduced in any form or by any means. You agree not to modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute, or create derivative works based on the External Services in any manner, and you shall not exploit the External Services in any unauthorised way whatsoever, including, but not limited to, by using the External Services to transmit any computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other malware, or by trespass or burdening network capacity. You further agree not to use the External Services in any manner to harass, abuse, stalk, threaten, defame or otherwise infringe or violate the rights of any other party, and that neither Licensor nor its agents are in any way responsible for any such use by you, nor for any harassing, threatening, defamatory, offensive, infringing or illegal messages or transmissions that you may receive as a result of using any of the External Services.

In addition, External Services and Third Party Materials that may be accessed from, displayed on or linked to from the Apple Devices are not available in all languages or in all countries or regions. The Licensor makes no representation that such External Services and Materials are appropriate or available for use in any particular location. To the extent you choose to use or access such External Services and Materials, you do so at your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with any applicable laws, including but not limited to applicable local laws. Licensor reserves the right to change, suspend, remove, or disable access to any External Services at any time without notice. In no event will the Licensor be liable for the removal of or disabling of access to any such External Services. The Licensor may also impose limits on the use of or access to certain External Services, in any case and without notice or liability.

e. NO WARRANTY: Licensor will use reasonable care and skill with respect to the provision of the Licensed Application and any External Services performed or provided by the Licensed Application to you.

D. APPLE MUSIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS

THIS LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND ITUNES SARL ("ITUNES") GOVERNS YOUR USE OF THE APPLE MUSIC SERVICE AND ANY FEATURES ACCESSIBLE THEREFROM (THE “APPLE MUSIC SERVICE”).

THE APPLE MUSIC SERVICE

iTunes is the provider of the Apple Music Service, which permits you to access digital music and other content (“Apple Music Products") for end user use only under the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.

REQUIREMENTS FOR USE OF THE APPLE MUSIC SERVICE

The Apple Music Service is only available to individuals aged at least 13 years, unless your Apple ID was provided to you as a result of a request by an approved educational institution or established as part of the Family Sharing feature by your parent or guardian. Children under the age of 18 should review this Agreement with their parent or guardian to ensure that the child and parent or legal guardian understand it. We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal information from children under 13, without verifiable parental consent. Parents and guardians should also remind any minors that conversing with strangers on the Internet can be dangerous and take appropriate precautions to protect children, including monitoring their use of the Apple Music Service.

The Apple Music Service is available to you only in the United Kingdom. You agree not to use or attempt to use the Apple Music Service from outside this location. iTunes may use technologies to verify your compliance.

Use of the Apple Music Service requires a compatible device, Internet access, and certain software; may require periodic updates; and may be affected by the performance of these factors. High-speed Internet access is strongly recommended for regular use and is required for video; access or cellular data fees may apply. Requires iOS 8.4, iTunes 12.2 or Android 4.1 or later. The latest version of required software is recommended and may be required for certain transactions or features. You agree that meeting these requirements, which may change from time to time, is your responsibility.

YOUR APPLE MUSIC ACCOUNT

As a registered user of the Apple Music Service, you may establish an Account as set forth in, and subject to the terms of, the “Your Account” paragraph of the iTunes Store Terms and Conditions. In order to use some features of the Apple Music Service, you must enter your Apple ID and password or use Touch ID to authenticate your Account. You agree to provide accurate and complete iTunes Registration Data when you register with, and as you use, the Apple Music Service.

iTunes logs information about your use of the Apple Music Service. This information includes, but is not limited to, the Apple Music Products you listen to (including whether you skip or stop) and the length of your listening session. iTunes may also collect device information such as IP address, device type, operating system version and type, and unique device identifiers. Any music preference information you provide to iTunes will also be stored in association with your Account. This information will be used by iTunes for purposes such as providing the Apple Music Service, personalizing our recommendations to you, reporting to licensors and paying royalties, customizing and improving Apple products and Services including the Apple Music Service, providing relevant advertising, protecting against fraud and enforcing this Agreement.

APPLE MUSIC SUBSCRIPTION

If you buy a subscription to the Apple Music Service (an “Apple Music Subscription”), iTunes will automatically charge the payment method associated with your Apple ID or the payment method associated with your Family Sharing Organizer’s account on a recurring basis until you turn off automatic renewal. You may turn off automatic renewal of your Apple Music Subscription at any time in the Account Settings menu on your device or computer, or in the Settings app on your device. If you turn off automatic renewal, you will continue to have access to the Apple Music Service for the remainder of your Apple Music Subscription term. When your Apple Music Subscription term ends, you will lose access to any feature of the Apple Music Service that requires an Apple Music Subscription, including but not limited to access to Apple Music Products accessible through the Apple Music Service or stored on your device, and any songs stored in your iCloud Music Library. Apple Music Subscription purchases are final (except as set out in our refund policy above). Your payment method will be charged no more than 24 hours prior to the expiration of the current Apple Music Subscription period.

To be eligible for an Apple Music Subscription at the family rate (where available), you must be enrolled in Family Sharing. If you are a Family Organizer, you agree that iTunes will automatically charge your payment method on a recurring basis for any Apple Music Subscription purchases initiated by your Family members until automatic renewal is turned off on the applicable Family member’s device or computer.

YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TIMELY PAYMENT OF ALL APPLE MUSIC SUBSCRIPTION FEES AND FOR PROVIDING ITUNES WITH A VALID PAYMENT METHOD. If iTunes is unable to successfully charge your payment method for Apple Music Subscription fees due, iTunes reserves the right to cancel your Apple Music Subscription. If your Apple Music Subscription is cancelled, you will lose access to any feature of the Apple Music Service that requires an Apple Music Subscription.

If you want to designate a different payment method or if there is a change in your payment method status, you must change your information in the Account Settings menu on your device or computer; this may temporarily disrupt your access to the Apple Music Service while iTunes verifies your new payment information.

We may contact you via email or push notification regarding your Account or any Apple Music Service feature, for reasons including, without limitation, that your Apple Music Subscription will not automatically renew or will be cancelled.

Where available, you may be offered an Apple Music Subscription through your carrier (a “Carrier Subscription”). If you purchase a Carrier Subscription, your carrier will bill you for the cost of your Apple Music Subscription. Your relationship with the carrier is governed by the carrier’s terms and conditions, not this Agreement, and any disputes related to a Carrier Subscription must be directed to your carrier, not iTunes. By using the Apple Music Service, you agree that your carrier may exchange your carrier account information, telephone number and subscription information with iTunes, and iTunes may use this information to determine the status of your Carrier Subscription.

ICLOUD MUSIC LIBRARY

The iCloud Music Library feature is available to Apple Music Service subscribers who log in with an Apple ID. iCloud Music Library stores and permits you to remotely access songs and music videos purchased from the iTunes Store and other songs, along with related metadata, playlists, and other information from your other Apple Music-enabled devices. iCloud Music Library is turned on automatically when you set up your Apple Music Subscription. You will be prompted to enable iCloud Music Library when you log in to the Apple Music Service on additional devices. You can enable iCloud Music Library in the Apple Music app settings on your device and in iTunes General Preferences on your computer. You can store up to 100,000 songs in iCloud Music Library. Songs purchased from the iTunes Store do not count against this limit. Songs that do not meet certain criteria or that are not authorized for your device or computer are not eligible for iCloud Music Library. You will not be able to access content stored in your iCloud Music Library when your Apple Music Subscription ends, but you can download songs that were previously acquired from the iTunes Store as set forth in, and subject to the terms of, the “Automatic Delivery and Downloading Previous Purchases” paragraph of the iTunes Store Terms and Conditions. You hereby agree to use iCloud Music Library only for lawfully acquired content. Any use for illegitimate content infringes the rights of others and may subject you to civil and criminal penalties, including possible monetary damages, for copyright infringement.

When you set up your Apple Music Subscription or enable iCloud Music Library, the Apple Music Service will scan the song files on your device or computer and collect other information that may be used to identify media in your Music Library, such as the names of songs, song artists or song durations. iCloud Music Library will use this information to identify songs currently available on the Apple Music Service, and will make identified songs available to you in a format then available on the Apple Music Service. Unidentified songs on your device will remain in local storage, and unidentified songs on your computer are uploaded to iCloud Music Library in the same format or a format determined by iTunes. You should backup your Music Library before setting up your Apple Music Subscription or enabling iCloud Music Library. Apple assumes no liability for content that is lost in connection with iCloud Music Library. iCloud Music Library should not be used as backup storage for content. iTunes reserves the right to limit types of content uploaded (for example, excessively large files). Identified or uploaded songs and related metadata will be available for access from an Apple Music-compatible device into which you have logged in with your Account and that has been enabled for iCloud Music Library.

When you set up your Apple Music Subscription or enable iCloud Music Library, iTunes logs information such as the tracks you play, stop or skip, the devices you use, and the time and duration of playback.

SUBMISSIONS TO THE APPLE MUSIC SERVICE

The Apple Music Service may offer interactive features that allow you to submit materials (including but not limited to your name, picture, content, information and third-party content) on areas of the Apple Music Service accessible and viewable by the public. You agree that any use by you of such features, including any materials submitted by you, shall be your sole responsibility, shall not infringe or violate the rights of any other party or violate any laws, contribute to or encourage infringing or otherwise unlawful conduct, or otherwise be obscene, objectionable, or in poor taste.

iTunes has the right, but not the obligation, to monitor any materials submitted by you or otherwise available on the Apple Music Service, to investigate any reported or apparent violation of this Agreement, and to take any action that iTunes in its sole discretion deems appropriate, including, without limitation, termination hereunder or under Apple’s Copyright Policy (http://www.apple.com/legal/copyright.html).

1
The Creation
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon
the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of
the waters.
¶ And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light
from the darkness.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night.
And the evening and the morning were the first day.
¶ And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the
waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were
under the firmament from the waters which were above the
firmament: and it was so.
And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the
morning were the second day.
¶ And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered
together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of
the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding
seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in
itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his
kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his
kind: and God saw that it was good.
And the evening and the morning were the third day.

¶ And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven
to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for
seasons, and for days, and years:
and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give
light upon the earth: and it was so.
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day,
and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light
upon the earth,
and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light
from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
¶ And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving
creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the
open firmament of heaven.
And God created great whales, and every living creature that
moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their
kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was
good.
And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill
the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
¶ And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after
his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his
kind: and it was so.
And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after
their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his
kind: and God saw that it was good.
¶ And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the
fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over
every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created
he him; male and female created he them.

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and
multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and
over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed,
which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which
is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to
every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have
given every green herb for meat: and it was so.
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was
very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
2
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of
them.
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had
made.
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in
it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Man in the Garden of Eden
¶ These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when
they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth
and the heavens,
and every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every
herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it
to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.
But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole
face of the ground.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and
breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a
living soul.
And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there
he put the man whom he had formed.
And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that
is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the
midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
¶ And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from
thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the
whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
and the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx
stone.
And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that
compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth
toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
¶ And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of
Eden to dress it and to keep it.
And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of
the garden thou mayest freely eat:
but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat
of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
¶ And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be
alone; I will make him a help meet for him.
And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the
field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see
what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living
creature, that was the name thereof.
And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and
to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found a help
meet for him.

And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he
slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead
thereof.
And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a
woman, and brought her unto the man.
And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my
flesh: she shall be called Woman [heb. Isha], because she was taken
out of Man [heb. Ish].
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall
cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not
ashamed.

Man’s Disobedience
Now the serpent was more subtile than any beast of the field which
the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath
God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of
the trees of the garden:
but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God
hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes
shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that
it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise,
she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her
husband with her; and he did eat.
And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they
were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made
themselves aprons.

¶ And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden
in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from
the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where
art thou?
And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid,
because I was naked; and I hid myself.
And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten
of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?
And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me,
she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
And the Lord God said unto the woman, What is this that thou
hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I
did eat.
¶ And the Lord God said unto the serpent,
Because thou hast done this,
thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field;
upon thy belly shalt thou go,
and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
and I will put enmity between thee and the woman,
and between thy seed and her seed;
it shall bruise thy head,
and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Unto the woman he said,
I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception;
in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children;
and thy desire shall be to thy husband,
and he shall rule over thee.
And unto Adam he said,
Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife,
and hast eaten of the tree,
of which I commanded thee, saying,
Thou shalt not eat of it:
cursed is the ground for thy sake;
in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

and thou shalt eat the herb of the field:
in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread,
till thou return unto the ground;
for out of it wast thou taken:
for dust thou art,and unto dust shalt thou return.
¶ And Adam called his wife’s name Eve [living]; because she was
the mother of all living.
Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of
skins, and clothed them.
¶ And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us,
to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and
take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to
till the ground from whence he was taken.
So he drove out the man: and he placed at the east of the garden of
Eden cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to
keep the way of the tree of life.

Cain and Abel
And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain
[gotten, or acquired], and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.
And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of
sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the
fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord.
And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat
thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
but unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was
very wroth, and his countenance fell.
And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy
countenance fallen?

12 Genesis 4
If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not
well, sin lieth at the door: and unto thee shall be his desire, and
thou shalt rule over him.
¶ And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when
they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother,
and slew him.
And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he
said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?
And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood
crieth unto me from the ground.
And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her
mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand.
When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto
thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the
earth.
And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can
bear.
Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth;
and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a
vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that
findeth me shall slay me.
And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain,
vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a
mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in
the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
¶ And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and
he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of
his son, Enoch.
And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and
Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was
Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents,
and of such as have cattle.

handle the harp and organ.
And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain, an instructor of every artificer
in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.
¶ And Lamech said unto his wives,
Adah and Zillah, hear my voice;
ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech:
for I have slain a man to my wounding,
and a young man to my hurt.
If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold,
truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
¶ And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his
name Seth [appointed, or put]: For God, said she, hath appointed
me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his
name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.

The Descendants of Adam
This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God
created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called
their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
And Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his
own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:
and the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight
hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:
and all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty
years: and he died.
¶ And Seth lived a hundred and five years, and begat Enos:
and Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years,
and begat sons and daughters:

and all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five
years: and he died.
¶ And Jared lived a hundred sixty and two years, and he begat
Enoch:
and Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat
sons and daughters:
and all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years:

¶ And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:
and Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three
hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
and all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
and Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
¶ And Methuselah lived a hundred eighty and seven years, and
begat Lamech:
and Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty
and two years, and begat sons and daughters:
and all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine
years: and he died.

And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five
years, and begat sons and daughters:
and all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven
years: and he died.
¶ And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem,
Ham, and Japheth.

The Wickedness of Mankind
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the
earth, and daughters were born unto them,
that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair;
and they took them wives of all which they chose.
And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for
that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty
years.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that,
when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they
bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of
old, men of renown.
¶ And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth,
and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only
evil continually.
And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and
it grieved him at his heart.
And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from
the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing,
and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

Noah Makes the Ark
¶ These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and
perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
¶ The earth also was corrupt before God; and the earth was filled
with violence.
And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all
flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me;
for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I
will destroy them with the earth.
Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the
ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.
And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the
ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and
the height of it thirty cubits.
A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou
finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side
thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.
And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to
destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven;
and every thing that is in the earth shall die.
But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come
into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives
with thee.
And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou
bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male
and female.
Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every
creeping thing of the earth after his kind; two of every sort shall
come unto thee, to keep them alive.

The Flood
And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into
the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and
his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his
female.
Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep
seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty
days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made
will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.
¶ And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters
was upon the earth.
And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives
with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of
every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
there went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and
the female, as God had commanded Noah.
And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood
were upon the earth.
¶ In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the
seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains
of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were
opened.
And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and
Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of
his sons with them, into the ark;
they, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their
kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after
his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.
And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh,
wherein is the breath of life.
And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God
had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in.
¶ And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters
increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lifted up above the earth.
And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the
earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the
high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains
were covered.
And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of
cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon
the earth, and every man:
all in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry
land, died.
And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face
of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and
the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth:
and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the
ark.
And the waters prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days.
8
And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the
cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass
over the earth, and the waters assuaged.

The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were
stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained.
And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after
the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of
the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the
tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the
mountains seen.
¶ And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the
window of the ark which he had made:
and he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the
waters were dried up from off the earth.
Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated
from off the face of the ground.
But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned
unto him into the ark; for the waters were on the face of the whole
earth. Then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in
unto him into the ark.
And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the
dove out of the ark.
And the dove came in to him in the evening, and, lo, in her mouth
was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew that the waters were
abated from off the earth.
And he stayed yet other seven days, and sent forth the dove, which
returned not again unto him any more.
¶ And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first
month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off
the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked,
and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the
month, was the earth dried.
And God spake unto Noah, saying,
Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons’
wives with thee.

Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all
flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that
creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the
earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’
wives with him:
every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever
creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the
ark.
¶ And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every
clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on
the altar.
And the Lord smelled a sweet savor; and the Lord said in his
heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake;
for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth: neither
will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and
heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

God’s Covenant with Noah
And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast
of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth
upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are
they delivered.
Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the
green herb have I given you all things.
But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye
not eat.

every man’s brother will I require the life of man.
Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for
in the image of God made he man.
And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in
the earth, and multiply therein.
¶ And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your
seed after you;
and with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the
cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out
of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be
cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any
more be a flood to destroy the earth.
And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make
between me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for
perpetual generations:
I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a
covenant between me and the earth.
And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that
the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you
and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more
become a flood to destroy all flesh.
And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I
may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every
living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I
have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

Noah’s Drunkenness
¶ And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and
Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth
overspread.
¶ And Noah began to be a husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
and he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered
within his tent.
And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father,
and told his two brethren without.
And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their
shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their
father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their
father’s nakedness.
And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son
had done unto him.
And he said,
Cursed be Canaan;
a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
And he said,
Blessed be the Lord God of Shem;
and Canaan shall be his servant.
God shall enlarge Japheth,
and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem;
and Canaan shall be his servant.
¶ And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he
died.

The Descendants of the Sons of Noah
Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah; Shem, Ham,
and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
¶ The sons of Japheth; Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan,
and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
And the sons of Gomer; Ashkenaz, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
And the sons of Javan; Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and
Dodanim.
By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every
one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
¶ And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and
Canaan.
And the sons of Cush; Seba, and Havilah, and Sabtah, and Raamah,
and Sabtecha: and the sons of Raamah; Sheba, and Dedan.
And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth.
He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said,
Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord.
And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and
Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the
city Rehoboth, and Calah,
and Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a great city.
And Mizraim begat Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and
Naphtuhim,
and Pathrusim, and Casluhim, (out of whom came Philistim,) and
Caphtorim.
¶ And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth,
and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite,
and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,
and the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and
afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.

And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest
to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and
Admah, and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.
These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues,
in their countries, and in their nations.
¶ Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother
of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born.
The children of Shem; Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud,
and Aram.
And the children of Aram; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber.
And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg
[division]; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s
name was Joktan.
And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazar-maveth, and
Jerah,
and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah,
and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba,
and Ophir, and Havilah, and Jobab: all these were the sons of
Joktan.
And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar, a
mount of the east.
These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues,
in their lands, after their nations.
¶ These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations,
in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth
after the flood.
11
The Tower of Babel
And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they
found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

for mortar.
And they said, Go to, let us build us a city, and a tower, whose top
may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be
scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the
children of men builded.
And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all
one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be
restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they
may not understand one another’s speech.
So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of
all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did
there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did
the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
The Descendants of Shem
¶ These are the generations of Shem: Shem was a hundred years
old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:
and Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and
begat sons and daughters.
¶ And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah:
And Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three
years, and begat sons and daughters.
¶ And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:
and Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years,
and begat sons and daughters.
¶ And Eber lived four and thirty years, and begat Peleg:
and Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years,
and begat sons and daughters.
¶ And Peleg lived thirty years, and begat Reu:

and Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years,
and begat sons and daughters.
¶ And Serug lived thirty years, and begat Nahor:
and Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years, and begat
sons and daughters.
¶ And Nahor lived nine and twenty years, and begat Terah:
and Nahor lived after he begat Terah a hundred and nineteen years,
and begat sons and daughters.
¶ And Terah lived seventy years, and begat Abram, Nahor, and
Haran.
The Descendants of Terah
¶ Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram,
Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.
And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity,
in Ur of the Chaldees.
And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram’s wife
was Sarai; and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of
Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.
But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
¶ And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his
son’s son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram’s wife; and
they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the
land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.
And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah
died in Haran.

God’s Call to Abram
Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country,
and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that
I will show thee:
and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and
make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth
thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
¶ So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot
went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he
departed out of Haran.
And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all
their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had
gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of
Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto
the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I
give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the Lord, who
appeared unto him.
And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel,
and pitched his tent, having Beth-el on the west, and Hai on the
east: and there he builded an altar unto the Lord, and called upon
the name of the Lord.
And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.
Abram in Egypt
¶ And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into
Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.

And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt,
that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a
fair woman to look upon:
therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee,
that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they
will save thee alive.
Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for
thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.
And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the
Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.
The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before
Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house.
And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and
oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she
asses, and camels.
¶ And the Lord plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues,
because of Sarai, Abram’s wife.
And Pharaoh called Abram, and said, What is this that thou hast
done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?
Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me
to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.
And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent
him away, and his wife, and all that he had.
13
Abram and Lot Separate
And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he
had, and Lot with him, into the south.
¶ And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
And he went on his journeys from the south even to Beth-el, unto
the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel
and Hai;

unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first:
and there Abram called on the name of the Lord.
And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds, and
tents.
And the land was not able to bear them, that they might dwell
together: for their substance was great, so that they could not dwell
together.
And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram’s cattle and
the herdmen of Lot’s cattle: and the Canaanite and the Perizzite
dwelt then in the land.
¶ And Abram said unto Lot, Let there be no strife, I pray thee,
between me and thee, and between my herdmen and thy herdmen;
for we be brethren.
Is not the whole land before thee? separate thyself, I pray thee,
from me: if thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or
if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left.
And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it
was well watered every where, before the Lord destroyed Sodom
and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of
Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.
Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east:
and they separated themselves the one from the other.
Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of
the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord
exceedingly.
¶ And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated
from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where
thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy
seed for ever.
And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man
can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be
numbered.

Lord.

Abram Rescues Lot
And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch
king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of
nations;
that these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king
of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, and Shemeber king of
Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which is Zoar.
All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the
salt sea.
Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year
they rebelled.
And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that
were with him, and smote the Rephaim in Ashteroth-karnaim, and
the Zuzim in Ham, and the Emim in Shaveh Kiriathaim,
and the Horites in their mount Seir, unto El-paran, which is by the
wilderness.
And they returned, and came to En-mishpat, which is Kadesh, and
smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites,
that dwelt in Hazezon-tamar.
And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah,
and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of
Bela, (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the
vale of Siddim;
with Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of
nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar;
four kings with five.

And the vale of Siddim was full of slime pits; and the kings of Sodom
and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to
the mountain.
And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their
victuals, and went their way.
And they took Lot, Abram’s brother’s son, who dwelt in Sodom,
and his goods, and departed.
¶ And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the
Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother
of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with
Abram.
And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he
armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred
and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan.
And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night,
and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the
left hand of Damascus.
And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his
brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people.
Melchizedek Blesses Abram
¶ And the king of Sodom went out to meet him, after his return
from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer and of the kings that were with
him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king’s dale.
And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and
he was the priest of the most high God.
And he blessed him, and said,
Blessed be Abram of the most high God,
possessor of heaven and earth:
and blessed be the most high God,
which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand.
And he gave him tithes of all.
And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the persons, and
take the goods to thyself.

made Abram rich:
save only that which the young men have eaten, and the portion of
the men which went with me, Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them
take their portion.

A Son Promised to Abram
After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a
vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding
great reward.
And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go
childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?
And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo,
one born in my house is mine heir.
And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This
shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine
own bowels shall be thine heir.
And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward
heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he
said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for
righteousness.
¶ And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought thee out of Ur
of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.
And he said, Lord God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit
it?

And he said unto him, Take me a heifer of three years old, and a she

turtledove, and a young pigeon.
And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and
laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.
And when the fowls came down upon the carcasses, Abram drove
them away.
¶ And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram;
and, lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him.
And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a
stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they
shall afflict them four hundred years;
and also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and
afterward shall they come out with great substance.
And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a
good old age.
But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the
iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
¶ And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was
dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed
between those pieces.
In that same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying,
Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto
the great river, the river Euphrates:
the Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,
and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaim,
and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the
Jebusites.

may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of
Sarai.
And Sarai, Abram’s wife, took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after
Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to
her husband Abram to be his wife.
And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw
that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.
And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given
my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had
conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the Lord judge between me
and thee.
But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thy hand; do to
her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she
fled from her face.
¶ And the angel of the Lord found her by a fountain of water in
the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.
And he said, Hagar, Sarai’s maid, whence camest thou? and
whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my
mistress Sarai.
And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Return to thy mistress,
and submit thyself under her hands.
And the angel of the Lord said unto her, I will multiply thy seed
exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with
child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael [God
shall hear]; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction.
And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and
every man’s hand against him: and he shall dwell in the presence of
all his brethren.
And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto her, Thou
God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that
seeth me?

Circumcision the Sign of the Covenant
And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord
appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God;
walk before me, and be thou perfect.
And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will
multiply thee exceedingly.
And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,
As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a
father of many nations.
Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name
shall be Abraham [father of a great multitude]; for a father of many
nations have I made thee.
And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of
thee, and kings shall come out of thee.
And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed
after thee in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be a
God unto thee and to thy seed after thee.
And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land
wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an
everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
¶ And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant
therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.
This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and
thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be
circumcised.

And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a

And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every
man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or
bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money,
must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh
for an everlasting covenant.
And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not
circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath
broken my covenant.
¶ And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not
call her name Sarai, but Sarah [princess] shall her name be.
And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless
her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of
her.
Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his
heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is a hundred years old?
and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?
And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before
thee!
And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou
shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him
for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.
And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him,
and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly;
twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.
But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear
unto thee at this set time in the next year.
¶ And he left off talking with him, and God went up from
Abraham.
And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his
house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among
the men of Abraham’s house; and circumcised the flesh of their
foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him.

In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son.
And all the men of his house, born in the house, and bought with
money of the stranger, were circumcised with him.

The Birth of Isaac Promised
And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he
sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;
and he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by
him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent
door, and bowed himself toward the ground,
and said, My Lord, if now I have found favor in thy sight, pass not
away, I pray thee, from thy servant:
let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest
yourselves under the tree:
and I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after
that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your sevant. And
they said, So do, as thou hast said.
And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make
ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes
upon the hearth.
And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetched a calf tender and
good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.
And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed,
and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and
they did eat.
¶ And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said,
Behold, in the tent.

in the tent door, which was behind him.
Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it
ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed
old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh,
saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?
Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will
return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have
a son.
Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And
he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.
Abraham Intercedes for Sodom
¶ And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom:
and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.
And the Lord said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I
do;
seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty
nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
For I know him, that he will command his children and his
household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to
do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham
that which he hath spoken of him.
And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is
great, and because their sin is very grievous,
I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether
according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will
know.
¶ And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward
Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the Lord.

Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also
destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are
therein?
That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous
with the wicked; and that the righteous should be as the wicked,
that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
And the Lord said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the
city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.
And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon
me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:
Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou
destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty
and five, I will not destroy it.
And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there
shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty’s
sake.
And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will
speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said,
I will not do it, if I find thirty there.
And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the
Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said,
I will not destroy it for twenty’s sake.
And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but
this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will
not destroy it for ten’s sake.
And the Lord went his way, as soon as he had left communing
with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

The Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah
And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the
gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he
bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
and he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your
servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye
shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we
will abide in the street all night.
And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him,
and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake
unleavened bread, and they did eat.
But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of
Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the
people from every quarter:
and they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men
which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we
may know them.
And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after
him,
and said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let
me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is
good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore
came they under the shadow of my roof.
And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow
came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal
worse with thee than with them. And they pressed sore upon the
man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.
But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to
them, and shut to the door.

And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with
blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to
find the door.
¶ And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son-inlaw,
and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in
the city, bring them out of this place:
for we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen
great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to
destroy it.
And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons-in-law, which married
his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord
will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his
sons-in-law.
¶ And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot,
saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here;
lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon
the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the
Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and
set him without the city.
And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad,
that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay
thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be
consumed.
And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou
hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast showed unto me in
saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil
take me, and I die:
behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: O, let
me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this
thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou
hast spoken.

[little].
The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
¶ Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah
brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven;
and he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the
inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar
of salt.
And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he
stood before the Lord:
and he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the
land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country
went up as the smoke of a furnace.
¶ And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain,
that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of
the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot
dwelt.
¶ And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his
two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he
dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there
is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all
the earth:
come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him,
that we may preserve seed of our father.
And they made their father drink wine that night: and the
firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not
when she lay down, nor when she arose.
And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the
younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him
drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that
we may preserve seed of our father.

Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is
the father of the Moabites unto this day.
And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi:
the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this
day.

Abraham and Abimelech
And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country,
and dwelt between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar.
And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and
Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.
But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him,
Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast
taken; for she is a man’s wife.
But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, Lord, wilt
thou slay also a righteous nation?
Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself
said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency
of my hands have I done this.
And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this
in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning
against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.
Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he
shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not,
know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.
¶ Therefore Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his
servants, and told all these things in their ears: and the men were
sore afraid.

Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What hast
thou done unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou hast
brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? thou hast done
deeds unto me that ought not to be done.
And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou
hast done this thing?
And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not
in this place; and they will slay me for my wife’s sake.
And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but
not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.
And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my
father’s house, that I said unto her, This is thy kindness which thou
shalt show unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of
me, He is my brother.
And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and
womenservants, and gave them unto Abraham, and restored him
Sarah his wife.
And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before thee: dwell where it
pleaseth thee.
And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a
thousand pieces of silver: behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes,
unto all that are with thee, and with all other: thus she was
reproved.
So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his
wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.
For the Lord had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of
Abimelech, because of Sarah, Abraham’s wife.

Sarah as he had spoken.

For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the
set time of which God had spoken to him.
And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him,
whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.
And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as
God had commanded him.
And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was
born unto him.
And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear
will laugh with me.
And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah
should have given children suck? for I have borne him a son in his
old age.
Hagar and Ishmael Sent Away
¶ And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great
feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.
And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had borne
unto Abraham, mocking.
Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and
her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my
son, even with Isaac.
And the thing was very grievous in Abraham’s sight because of his
son.
And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight
because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah
hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy
seed be called.
And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation,
because he is thy seed.
And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a
bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder,
and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered
in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.

And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as
it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the
child. And she sat over against him, and lifted up her voice, and
wept.
And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to
Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar?
fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.
Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make
him a great nation.
And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she
went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the
wilderness, and became an archer.
And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him
a wife out of the land of Egypt.
The Covenant between Abraham and Abimelech
¶ And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phichol the
chief captain of his host spake unto Abraham, saying, God is with
thee in all that thou doest:
now therefore swear unto me here by God, that thou wilt not deal
falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son’s son: but
according to the kindness that I have done unto thee, thou shalt do
unto me, and to the land wherein thou hast sojourned.
And Abraham said, I will swear.
¶ And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water,
which Abimelech’s servants had violently taken away.
And Abimelech said, I wot not who hath done this thing: neither
didst thou tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but today.
And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them unto
Abimelech; and both of them made a covenant.
And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.

that they may be a witness unto me, that I have digged this well.
Wherefore he called that place Beer-sheba [the well of the oath];
because there they sware both of them.
Thus they made a covenant at Beer-sheba: then Abimelech rose up,
and Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they returned into
the land of the Philistines.
And Abraham planted a grove in Beer-sheba, and called there on the
name of the Lord, the everlasting God.
And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines’ land many days.
22
Abraham Commanded to Offer Isaac
And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt
Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I
am.
And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou
lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for
a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee
of.
And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass,
and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and
clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto
the place of which God had told him.
Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes, and saw the place
afar off.
And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide ye here with the ass;
and I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to
you.

And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon

went both of them together.
And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and
he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the
wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a
burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
¶ And they came to the place which God had told him of; and
Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and
bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay
his son.
And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said,
Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any
thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou
hast not withheld thy son, thine only son, from me.
And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind
him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and
took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead
of his son.
And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh: as it is
said to this day, In the mount of the Lord it shall be seen.
¶ And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven
the second time,
and said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou
hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son,
that in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply
thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon
the seashore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because
thou hast obeyed my voice.
So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and
went together to Beer-sheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beer-sheba.

and Chesed, and Hazo, and Pildash, and Jidlaph, and Bethuel.
And Bethuel begat Rebekah: these eight Milcah did bear to Nahor,
Abraham’s brother.
And his concubine, whose name was Reumah, she bare also Tebah,
and Gaham, and Thahash, and Maachah.

Abraham Buys a Burial Ground for Sarah
And Sarah was a hundred and seven and twenty years old: these
were the years of the life of Sarah.
And Sarah died in Kirjath-arba; the same is Hebron in the land of
Canaan: and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for
her.
And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the
sons of Heth, saying,
I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a possession of a
buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.
And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him,
Hear us, my lord: thou art a mighty prince among us: in the choice
of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from
thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead.
And Abraham stood up, and bowed himself to the people of the
land, even to the children of Heth.
And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind that I
should bury my dead out of my sight, hear me, and entreat for me
to Ephron the son of Zohar,

that he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath, which
is in the end of his field; for as much money as it is worth he shall
give it me for a possession of a buryingplace amongst you.
And Ephron dwelt among the children of Heth: and Ephron the
Hittite answered Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth,
even of all that went in at the gate of his city, saying,
Nay, my lord, hear me: the field give I thee, and the cave that is
therein, I give it thee; in the presence of the sons of my people give
I it thee: bury thy dead.
And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land.
And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the
land, saying, But if thou wilt give it, I pray thee, hear me: I will give
thee money for the field; take it of me, and I will bury my dead
there.
And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him,
My lord, hearken unto me: the land is worth four hundred shekels
of silver; what is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy
dead.
And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to
Ephron the silver, which he had named in the audience of the sons
of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the
merchant.
¶ And the field of Ephron, which was in Machpelah, which was
before Mamre, the field, and the cave which was therein, and all
the trees that were in the field, that were in all the borders round
about, were made sure
unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of
Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city.
And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the
field of Machpelah before Mamre: the same is Hebron in the land
of Canaan.
And the field, and the cave that is therein, were made sure unto
Abraham for a possession of a buryingplace by the sons of Heth.

A Wife Obtained for Isaac
And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the Lord had
blessed Abraham in all things.
And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled
over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh:
and I will make thee swear by the Lord, the God of heaven, and
the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of
the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell:
but thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a
wife unto my son Isaac.
And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman will not
be willing to follow me unto this land: must I needs bring thy son
again unto the land from whence thou camest?
And Abraham said unto him, Beware thou that thou bring not my
son thither again.
The Lord God of heaven, which took me from my father’s house,
and from the land of my kindred, and which spake unto me, and
that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he
shall send his angel before thee, and thou shalt take a wife unto my
son from thence.
And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou
shalt be clear from this my oath: only bring not my son thither
again.
And the servant put his hand under the thigh of Abraham his
master, and sware to him concerning that matter.
¶ And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master, and
departed; for all the goods of his master were in his hand: and he
arose, and went to Mesopotamia, unto the city of Nahor.
And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of
water at the time of the evening, even the time that women go out
to draw water.

52 Genesis 24
And he said, O Lord God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send
me good speed this day, and show kindness unto my master
Abraham.
Behold, I stand here by the well of water; and the daughters of the
men of the city come out to draw water:
and let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let
down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink; and she shall say,
Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: let the same be she that
thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac; and thereby shall I know
that thou hast showed kindness unto my master.
¶ And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold,
Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the
wife of Nahor, Abraham’s brother, with her pitcher upon her
shoulder.
And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had
any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her
pitcher, and came up.
And the servant ran to meet her, and said, Let me, I pray thee,
drink a little water of thy pitcher.
And she said, Drink, my lord: and she hasted, and let down her
pitcher upon her hand, and gave him drink.
And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw
water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.
And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran
again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels.
And the man wondering at her held his peace, to wit whether the
Lord had made his journey prosperous or not.
¶ And it came to pass, as the camels had done drinking, that the
man took a golden earring of half a shekel weight, and two
bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold;
and said, Whose daughter art thou? tell me, I pray thee: is there
room in thy father’s house for us to lodge in?
And she said unto him, I am the daughter of Bethuel the son of
Milcah, which she bare unto Nahor.

She said moreover unto him, We have both straw and provender

And the man bowed down his head, and worshipped the Lord.
And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of my master Abraham, who
hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being
in the way, the Lord led me to the house of my master’s brethren.
¶ And the damsel ran, and told them of her mother’s house these
things.
And Rebekah had a brother, and his name was Laban: and Laban
ran out unto the man, unto the well.
And it came to pass, when he saw the earring, and bracelets upon
his sister’s hands, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his
sister, saying, Thus spake the man unto me, that he came unto the
man; and, behold, he stood by the camels at the well.
And he said, Come in, thou blessed of the Lord; wherefore
standest thou without? for I have prepared the house, and room for
the camels.
And the man came into the house: and he ungirded his camels, and
gave straw and provender for the camels, and water to wash his
feet, and the men’s feet that were with him.
And there was set meat before him to eat: but he said, I will not eat,
until I have told mine errand. And he said, Speak on.
¶ And he said, I am Abraham’s servant.
And the Lord hath blessed my master greatly, and he is become
great: and he hath given him flocks, and herds, and silver, and gold,
and menservants, and maidservants, and camels, and asses.
And Sarah my master’s wife bare a son to my master when she was
old: and unto him hath he given all that he hath.
And my master made me swear, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife
to my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I
dwell:
but thou shalt go unto my father’s house, and to my kindred, and
take a wife unto my son.
And I said unto my master, Peradventure the woman will not
follow me.

my son of my kindred, and of my father’s house:
then shalt thou be clear from this my oath, when thou comest to my
kindred; and if they give not thee one, thou shalt be clear from my
oath.
¶ And I came this day unto the well, and said, O Lord God of my
master Abraham, if now thou do prosper my way which I go:
behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass, that
when the virgin cometh forth to draw water, and I say to her, Give
me, I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher to drink;
and she say to me, Both drink thou, and I will also draw for thy
camels: let the same be the woman whom the Lord hath appointed
out for my master’s son.
¶ And before I had done speaking in mine heart, behold, Rebekah
came forth with her pitcher on her shoulder; and she went down
unto the well, and drew water: and I said unto her, Let me drink, I
pray thee.
And she made haste, and let down her pitcher from her shoulder,
and said, Drink, and I will give thy camels drink also: so I drank,
and she made the camels drink also.
And I asked her, and said, Whose daughter art thou? And she said,
The daughter of Bethuel, Nahors son, whom Milcah bare unto
him: and I put the earring upon her face, and the bracelets upon
her hands.
And I bowed down my head, and worshipped the Lord, and
blessed the Lord God of my master Abraham, which had led me in
the right way to take my master’s brother’s daughter unto his son.
And now, if ye will deal kindly and truly with my master, tell me:
and if not, tell me; that I may turn to the right hand, or to the left.
¶ Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The thing
proceedeth from the Lord: we cannot speak unto thee bad or
good.
Behold, Rebekah is before thee; take her, and go, and let her be thy
master’s son’s wife, as the Lord hath spoken.

¶ And it came to pass, that, when Abraham’s servant heard their
words, he worshipped the Lord, bowing himself to the earth.
And the servant brought forth jewels of silver, and jewels of gold,
and raiment, and gave them to Rebekah: he gave also to her brother
and to her mother precious things.
And they did eat and drink, he and the men that were with him,
and tarried all night; and they rose up in the morning, and he said,
Send me away unto my master.
And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide with us
a few days, at the least ten; after that she shall go.
And he said unto them, Hinder me not, seeing the Lord hath
prospered my way; send me away that I may go to my master.
And they said, We will call the damsel, and inquire at her mouth.
And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this
man? And she said, I will go.
And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and
Abraham’s servant, and his men.
And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister;
be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess
the gate of those which hate them.
And Rebekah arose, and her damsels, and they rode upon the
camels, and followed the man: and the servant took Rebekah, and
went his way.
¶ And Isaac came from the way of the well Lahai-roi; for he dwelt
in the south country.
And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide: and he
lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.
And Rebekah lifted up her eyes, and when she saw Isaac, she
lighted off the camel.
For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in
the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master:
therefore she took a veil, and covered herself.
And the servant told Isaac all things that he had done.

Abraham’s Descendants through Keturah
Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.
And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian,
and Ishbak, and Shuah.
And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were
Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.
And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and
Abidah, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.
And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.
But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had,
Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while
he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.
The Death and Burial of Abraham
¶ And these are the days of the years of Abraham’s life which he
lived, a hundred threescore and fifteen years.
Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old
man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.
And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of
Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite,
which is before Mamre;
the field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: there was
Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.
And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed
his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahai-roi.

The Descendants of Ishmael
¶ Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom
Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s handmaid, bare unto Abraham:
and these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names,
according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth;
and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,
and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,
Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:
these are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their
towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their
nations.
And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, a hundred and thirty
and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died, and was
gathered unto his people.
And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as
thou goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his
brethren.
The Birth of Esau and Jacob
¶ And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham’s son: Abraham
begat Isaac:
and Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the
daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan-aram, the sister to Laban
the Syrian.
And Isaac entreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren:
and the Lord was entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife
conceived.
And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be
so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the Lord.
And the Lord said unto her,
Two nations are in thy womb,
and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels;
and the one people shall be stronger than the other people;

and the elder shall serve the younger.
And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were
twins in her womb.
And the first came out red, all over like a hairy garment; and they
called his name Esau.
And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on
Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore
years old when she bare them.
Esau Sells His Birthright
¶ And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the
field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.
And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but
Rebekah loved Jacob.
¶ And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was
faint:
and Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red
pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom [red].
And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit
shall this birthright do to me?
And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and
he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat
and drink, and rose up, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his
birthright.

Isaac at Gerar
And there was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that
was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king
of the Philistines unto Gerar.

And the Lord appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into

Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for
unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I
will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
and I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will
give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the
nations of the earth be blessed:
because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my
commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
¶ And Isaac dwelt in Gerar.
And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is
my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men
of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look
upon.
And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that
Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw,
and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.
And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy
wife: and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto
him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.
And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of
the people might lightly have lain with thy wife, and thou
shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us.
And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth
this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.
¶ Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year a
hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him.
And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he
became very great:
for he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great
store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.
For all the wells which his father’s servants had digged in the days
of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled
them with earth.

And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much
mightier than we.
¶ And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of
Gerar, and dwelt there.
And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in
the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped
them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after
the names by which his father had called them.
And Isaac’s servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of
springing water.
And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac’s herdmen, saying,
The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek
[contention]; because they strove with him.
And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he
called the name of it Sitnah [hatred].
And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for
that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth [room];
and he said, For now the Lord hath made room for us, and we
shall be fruitful in the land.
¶ And he went up from thence to Beer-sheba.
And the Lord appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am
the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and
will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham’s
sake.
And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the
Lord, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac’s servants digged
a well.
¶ Then Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of
his friends, and Phichol the chief captain of his army.
And Isaac said unto them, Wherefore come ye to me, seeing ye hate
me, and have sent me away from you?
And they said, We saw certainly that the Lord was with thee: and
we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and
thee, and let us make a covenant with thee;

And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.
And they rose up betimes in the morning, and sware one to
another: and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in
peace.
And it came to pass the same day, that Isaac’s servants came, and
told him concerning the well which they had digged, and said unto
him, We have found water.
And he called it Shebah: therefore the name of the city is Beersheba
unto this day.
¶ And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the
daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon
the Hittite:
which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.
27
Jacob Obtains Isaac’s Blessing
And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were
dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said
unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I.
And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my
death:
now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy
bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison;
and make me savory meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I
may eat; that my soul may bless thee before I die.
¶ And Rebekah heard when Isaac spake to Esau his son. And Esau
went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.
And Rebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard thy
father speak unto Esau thy brother, saying,

Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I
command thee.
Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids of the
goats; and I will make them savory meat for thy father, such as he
loveth:
and thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, and that he
may bless thee before his death.
And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a
hairy man, and I am a smooth man:
my father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a
deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing.
And his mother said unto him, Upon me be thy curse, my son: only
obey my voice, and go fetch me them.
And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his
mother made savory meat, such as his father loved.
And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which
were with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger
son:
and she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and
upon the smooth of his neck:
and she gave the savory meat and the bread, which she had
prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.
¶ And he came unto his father, and said, My father: and he said,
Here am I; who art thou, my son?
And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy firstborn; I have done
according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my
venison, that thy soul may bless me.
And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that thou hast found it so
quickly, my son? And he said, Because the Lord thy God brought it
to me.
And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may feel
thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not.

And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and
said, The voice is Jacob’s voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.
And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as his
brother Esau’s hands: so he blessed him.
And he said, Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am.
And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son’s venison,
that my soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and he
did eat: and he brought him wine, and he drank.
And his father Isaac said unto him, Come near now, and kiss me,
my son.
And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his
raiment, and blessed him, and said,
See, the smell of my son
is as the smell of a field which the Lord hath blessed:
therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven,
and the fatness of the earth,
and plenty of corn and wine:
let people serve thee,
and nations bow down to thee:
be lord over thy brethren,
and let thy mother’s sons bow down to thee:
cursed be every one that curseth thee,
and blessed be he that blesseth thee.
¶ And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing
Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac
his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.
And he also had made savory meat, and brought it unto his father,
and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son’s
venison, that thy soul may bless me.
And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I
am thy son, thy firstborn, Esau.
And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he
that hath taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all
before thou camest, and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be
blessed.

also, O my father.
And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away
thy blessing.
And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted
me these two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now
he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not
reserved a blessing for me?
And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him
thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and
with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now
unto thee, my son?
And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my
father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his
voice, and wept.
¶ And Isaac his father answered and said unto him,
Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth,
and of the dew of heaven from above;
and by thy sword shalt thou live,
and shalt serve thy brother:
and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion,
that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.
Jacob Flees from Esau
¶ And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his
father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of
mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother
Jacob.
And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah: and
she sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him,
Behold, thy brother Esau, as touching thee, doth comfort himself,
purposing to kill thee.

until thy brother’s anger turn away from thee, and he forget that
which thou hast done to him: then I will send, and fetch thee from
thence: why should I be deprived also of you both in one day?
¶ And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of the
daughters of Heth: if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth,
such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall
my life do me?
28
And Isaac called Jacob, and blessed him, and charged him, and said
unto him, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan.
Arise, go to Padan-aram, to the house of Bethuel thy mother’s
father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of Laban
thy mother’s brother.
And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply
thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people;
and give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with
thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger,
which God gave unto Abraham.
And Isaac sent away Jacob: and he went to Padan-aram unto Laban,
son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob’s and
Esau’s mother.
¶ When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away
to Padan-aram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he
blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a
wife of the daughters of Canaan;
and that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to
Padan-aram;
and Esau seeing that the daughters of Canaan pleased not Isaac his
father;

then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he

God Appears to Jacob at Beth-el
¶ And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba, and went toward Haran.
And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night,
because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and
put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.
And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the
top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending
and descending on it.
And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord
God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon
thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;
and thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth; and thou shalt spread
abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the
south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth
be blessed.
And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither
thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not
leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is
in this place; and I knew it not.
And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none
other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.
¶ And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that
he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil
upon the top of it.
And he called the name of that place Beth-el [the house of God]:
but the name of that city was called Luz at the first.
And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will
keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and
raiment to put on,

thee.

Jacob Serves Laban for Rachel and Leah
Then Jacob went on his journey, and came into the land of the
people of the east.
And he looked, and behold a well in the field, and, lo, there were
three flocks of sheep lying by it; for out of that well they watered
the flocks: and a great stone was upon the well’s mouth.
And thither were all the flocks gathered: and they rolled the stone
from the well’s mouth, and watered the sheep, and put the stone
again upon the well’s mouth in his place.
¶ And Jacob said unto them, My brethren, whence be ye? And they
said, Of Haran are we.
And he said unto them, Know ye Laban the son of Nahor? And
they said, We know him.
And he said unto them, Is he well? And they said, He is well: and,
behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep.
And he said, Lo, it is yet high day, neither is it time that the cattle
should be gathered together: water ye the sheep, and go and feed
them.
And they said, We cannot, until all the flocks be gathered together,
and till they roll the stone from the well’s mouth; then we water the
sheep.
¶ And while he yet spake with them, Rachel came with her father’s
sheep: for she kept them.
And it came to pass, when Jacob saw Rachel the daughter of Laban
his mother’s brother, and the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother,

that Jacob went near, and rolled the stone from the well’s mouth,
and watered the flock of Laban his mother’s brother.
And Jacob kissed Rachel, and lifted up his voice, and wept.
And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father’s brother, and that he
was Rebekah’s son: and she ran and told her father.
¶ And it came to pass, when Laban heard the tidings of Jacob his
sister’s son, that he ran to meet him, and embraced him, and kissed
him, and brought him to his house. And he told Laban all these
things.
And Laban said to him, Surely thou art my bone and my flesh. And
he abode with him the space of a month.
¶ And Laban said unto Jacob, Because thou art my brother,
shouldest thou therefore serve me for nought? tell me, what shall
thy wages be?
And Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and
the name of the younger was Rachel.
Leah was tender eyed; but Rachel was beautiful and well-favored.
And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will serve thee seven years for
Rachel thy younger daughter.
And Laban said, It is better that I give her to thee, than that I should
give her to another man: abide with me.
And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; and they seemed unto
him but a few days, for the love he had to her.
¶ And Jacob said unto Laban, Give me my wife, for my days are
fulfilled, that I may go in unto her.
And Laban gathered together all the men of the place, and made a
feast.
And it came to pass in the evening, that he took Leah his daughter,
and brought her to him; and he went in unto her.
And Laban gave unto his daughter Leah Zilpah his maid for a
handmaid.
And it came to pass, that in the morning, behold, it was Leah: and
he said to Laban, What is this thou hast done unto me? did not I
serve with thee for Rachel? wherefore then hast thou beguiled me?

And Laban said, It must not be so done in our country, to give the
younger before the firstborn.
Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this also for the service which
thou shalt serve with me yet seven other years.
And Jacob did so, and fulfilled her week: and he gave him Rachel
his daughter to wife also.
And Laban gave to Rachel his daughter Bilhah his handmaid to be
her maid.
And he went in also unto Rachel, and he loved also Rachel more
than Leah, and served with him yet seven other years.
The Children Born to Jacob
¶ And when the Lord saw that Leah was hated, he opened her
womb: but Rachel was barren.
And Leah conceived, and bare a son; and she called his name
Reuben [see, a son]: for she said, Surely the Lord hath looked
upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me.
And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Because the
Lord hath heard that I was hated, he hath therefore given me this
son also: and she called his name Simeon [hearing].
And she conceived again, and bare a son; and said, Now this time
will my husband be joined unto me, because I have borne him
three sons: therefore was his name called Levi [joined].
And she conceived again, and bare a son; and she said, Now will I
praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah [praise]; and
left bearing.
30
And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel
envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I
die.
And Jacob’s anger was kindled against Rachel; and he said, Am I in
God’s stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

And she said, Behold my maid Bilhah, go in unto her; and she shall

And she gave him Bilhah her handmaid to wife: and Jacob went in
unto her.
And Bilhah conceived, and bare Jacob a son.
And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my
voice, and hath given me a son: therefore called she his name Dan
[judging].
And Bilhah Rachel’s maid conceived again, and bare Jacob a second
son.
And Rachel said, With great wrestlings have I wrestled with my
sister, and I have prevailed: and she called his name Naphtali [my
wrestling].
¶ When Leah saw that she had left bearing, she took Zilpah her
maid, and gave her Jacob to wife.
And Zilpah Leah’s maid bare Jacob a son.
And Leah said, A troop cometh: and she called his name Gad.
And Zilpah Leah’s maid bare Jacob a second son.
And Leah said, Happy am I, for the daughters will call me blessed:
and she called his name Asher [happy].
¶ And Reuben went in the days of wheat harvest, and found
mandrakes in the field, and brought them unto his mother Leah.
Then Rachel said to Leah, Give me, I pray thee, of thy son’s
mandrakes.
And she said unto her, Is it a small matter that thou hast taken my
husband? and wouldest thou take away my son’s mandrakes also?
And Rachel said, Therefore he shall lie with thee tonight for thy
son’s mandrakes.
And Jacob came out of the field in the evening, and Leah went out
to meet him, and said, Thou must come in unto me; for surely I
have hired thee with my son’s mandrakes. And he lay with her that
night.
And God hearkened unto Leah, and she conceived, and bare Jacob
the fifth son.

And Leah said, God hath given me my hire, because I have given

hire].
And Leah conceived again, and bare Jacob the sixth son.
And Leah said, God hath endued me with a good dowry; now will
my husband dwell with me, because I have borne him six sons: and
she called his name Zebulun [dwelling].
And afterward she bare a daughter, and called her name Dinah.
And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and
opened her womb.
And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away
my reproach:
and she called his name Joseph [adding]; and said, The Lord shall
add to me another son.
The Trickery of Laban and Jacob
¶ And it came to pass, when Rachel had borne Joseph, that Jacob
said unto Laban, Send me away, that I may go unto mine own
place, and to my country.
Give me my wives and my children, for whom I have served thee,
and let me go: for thou knowest my service which I have done thee.
And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favor in thine
eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the Lord hath
blessed me for thy sake.
And he said, Appoint me thy wages, and I will give it.
And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and
how thy cattle was with me.
For it was little which thou hadst before I came, and it is now
increased unto a multitude; and the Lord hath blessed thee since
my coming: and now, when shall I provide for mine own house
also?
And he said, What shall I give thee? And Jacob said, Thou shalt not
give me any thing: if thou wilt do this thing for me, I will again
feed and keep thy flock.

I will pass through all thy flock today, removing from thence all the
speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle among the
sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such
shall be my hire.
So shall my righteousness answer for me in time to come, when it
shall come for my hire before thy face: every one that is not
speckled and spotted among the goats, and brown among the
sheep, that shall be counted stolen with me.
And Laban said, Behold, I would it might be according to thy word.
And he removed that day the he goats that were ring-streaked and
spotted, and all the she goats that were speckled and spotted, and
every one that had some white in it, and all the brown among the
sheep, and gave them into the hand of his sons.
And he set three days’ journey betwixt himself and Jacob: and Jacob
fed the rest of Laban’s flocks.
¶ And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and
chestnut tree; and pilled white streaks in them, and made the white
appear which was in the rods.
And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in the
gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks came to drink, that
they should conceive when they came to drink.
And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle
ring-streaked, speckled, and spotted.
And Jacob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks
toward the ring-streaked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban;
and he put his own flocks by themselves, and put them not unto
Laban’s cattle.
And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did conceive,
that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters,
that they might conceive among the rods.
But when the cattle were feeble, he put them not in: so the feebler
were Laban’s, and the stronger Jacob’s.
And the man increased exceedingly, and had much cattle, and
maidservants, and menservants, and camels, and asses.

31
And he heard the words of Laban’s sons, saying, Jacob hath taken
away all that was our father’s; and of that which was our father’s
hath he gotten all this glory.
And Jacob beheld the countenance of Laban, and, behold, it was
not toward him as before.
And the Lord said unto Jacob, Return unto the land of thy fathers,
and to thy kindred; and I will be with thee.
And Jacob sent and called Rachel and Leah to the field unto his
flock,
and said unto them, I see your father’s countenance, that it is not
toward me as before; but the God of my father hath been with me.
And ye know that with all my power I have served your father.
And your father hath deceived me, and changed my wages ten
times; but God suffered him not to hurt me.
If he said thus, The speckled shall be thy wages; then all the cattle
bare speckled: and if he said thus, The ring-streaked shall be thy
hire; then bare all the cattle ring-streaked.
Thus God hath taken away the cattle of your father, and given them
to me.
And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I
lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams
which leaped upon the cattle were ring-streaked, speckled, and
grizzled.
And the angel of God spake unto me in a dream, saying, Jacob: and
I said, Here am I.
And he said, Lift up now thine eyes, and see, all the rams which
leap upon the cattle are ring-streaked, speckled, and grizzled: for I
have seen all that Laban doeth unto thee.
I am the God of Beth-el, where thou anointedst the pillar, and
where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from
this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred.
And Rachel and Leah answered and said unto him, Is there yet any
portion or inheritance for us in our father’s house?

thee, do.
Jacob Flees from Laban
¶ Then Jacob rose up, and set his sons and his wives upon camels;
and he carried away all his cattle, and all his goods which he had
gotten, the cattle of his getting, which he had gotten in Padanaram,
for to go to Isaac his father in the land of Canaan.
And Laban went to shear his sheep: and Rachel had stolen the
images that were her father’s.
And Jacob stole away unawares to Laban the Syrian, in that he told
him not that he fled.
So he fled with all that he had; and he rose up, and passed over the
river, and set his face toward the mount Gilead.
¶ And it was told Laban on the third day, that Jacob was fled.
And he took his brethren with him, and pursued after him seven
days’ journey; and they overtook him in the mount Gilead.
And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said
unto him, Take heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or
bad.
¶ Then Laban overtook Jacob. Now Jacob had pitched his tent in
the mount: and Laban with his brethren pitched in the mount of
Gilead.
And Laban said to Jacob, What hast thou done, that thou hast
stolen away unawares to me, and carried away my daughters, as
captives taken with the sword?
Wherefore didst thou flee away secretly, and steal away from me;
and didst not tell me, that I might have sent thee away with mirth,
and with songs, with tabret, and with harp?
And hast not suffered me to kiss my sons and my daughters? thou
hast now done foolishly in so doing.

It is in the power of my hand to do you hurt: but the God of your
father spake unto me yesternight, saying, Take thou heed that thou
speak not to Jacob either good or bad.
And now, though thou wouldest needs be gone, because thou sore
longedst after thy father’s house, yet wherefore hast thou stolen my
gods?
And Jacob answered and said to Laban, Because I was afraid: for I
said, Peradventure thou wouldest take by force thy daughters from
me.
With whomsoever thou findest thy gods, let him not live: before
our brethren discern thou what is thine with me, and take it to
thee. For Jacob knew not that Rachel had stolen them.
¶ And Laban went into Jacob’s tent, and into Leah’s tent, and into
the two maidservants’ tents; but he found them not. Then went he
out of Leah’s tent, and entered into Rachel’s tent.
Now Rachel had taken the images, and put them in the camel’s
furniture, and sat upon them. And Laban searched all the tent, but
found them not.
And she said to her father, Let it not displease my lord that I cannot
rise up before thee; for the custom of women is upon me. And he
searched, but found not the images.
¶ And Jacob was wroth, and chode with Laban: and Jacob answered
and said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that thou
hast so hotly pursued after me?
Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast thou found of
all thy household stuff? set it here before my brethren and thy
brethren, that they may judge betwixt us both.
This twenty years have I been with thee; thy ewes and thy she goats
have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock have I not
eaten.
That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee; I bare the
loss of it; of my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by day, or
stolen by night.
Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by
night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes.

Thus have I been twenty years in thy house: I served thee fourteen
years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle; and thou
hast changed my wages ten times.
Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of
Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now
empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labor of my hands,
and rebuked thee yesternight.
¶ And Laban answered and said unto Jacob, These daughters are my
daughters, and these children are my children, and these cattle are
my cattle, and all that thou seest is mine: and what can I do this day
unto these my daughters, or unto their children which they have
borne?
Now therefore come thou, let us make a covenant, I and thou; and
let it be for a witness between me and thee.
And Jacob took a stone, and set it up for a pillar.
And Jacob said unto his brethren, Gather stones; and they took
stones, and made a heap: and they did eat there upon the heap.
And Laban called it Jegar-sahadutha [the heap of witness]: but
Jacob called it Galeed [the heap of witness].
And Laban said, This heap is a witness between me and thee this
day. Therefore was the name of it called Galeed,
and Mizpah [a beacon or watchtower]; for he said, The Lord watch
between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.
If thou shalt afflict my daughters, or if thou shalt take other wives
beside my daughters, no man is with us; see, God is witness betwixt
me and thee.
¶ And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and behold this pillar,
which I have cast betwixt me and thee;
this heap be witness, and this pillar be witness, that I will not pass
over this heap to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over this heap
and this pillar unto me, for harm.
The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their
father, judge betwixt us. And Jacob sware by the fear of his father
Isaac.

his daughters, and blessed them: and Laban departed, and returned
unto his place.

Jacob Prepares to Meet Esau
And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.
And when Jacob saw them, he said, This is God’s host: and he called
the name of that place Mahanaim [two hosts or camps].
¶ And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto
the land of Seir, the country of Edom.
And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall ye speak unto my
lord Esau; Thy servant Jacob saith thus, I have sojourned with
Laban, and stayed there until now:
and I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and
womenservants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find
grace in thy sight.
¶ And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy
brother Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred
men with him.
Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the
people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the
camels, into two bands;
and said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the
other company which is left shall escape.
¶ And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my
father Isaac, the Lord which saidst unto me, Return unto thy
country, and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee:

I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth,

passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.
Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the
hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and
the mother with the children.
And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as
the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.
¶ And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which
came to his hand a present for Esau his brother;
two hundred she goats and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes and
twenty rams,
thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine and ten bulls,
twenty she asses and ten foals.
And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by
themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and
put a space betwixt drove and drove.
And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother
meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and
whither goest thou? and whose are these before thee?
Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob’s; it is a present sent
unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us.
And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that
followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto
Esau, when ye find him.
And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us. For he
said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and
afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.
So went the present over before him; and himself lodged that night
in the company.

Jacob Wrestles at Peniel
¶ And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two
womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford
Jabbok.
And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over
that he had.
And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until
the breaking of the day.
And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the
hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of
joint, as he wrestled with him.
And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not
let thee go, except thou bless me.
And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for
as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast
prevailed.
And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And
he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he
blessed him there.
And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel [the face of God]: for
I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.
And as he passed over Penuel the sun rose upon him, and he halted
upon his thigh.
Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank,
which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day; because he
touched the hollow of Jacob’s thigh in the sinew that shrank.

Jacob and Esau Reconciled
And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came,
and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto
Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.
And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah
and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.
And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground
seven times, until he came near to his brother.
¶ And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his
neck, and kissed him: and they wept.
And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children, and
said, Who are those with thee? And he said, The children which
God hath graciously given thy servant.
Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and
they bowed themselves.
And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves:
and after came Joseph near and Rachel, and they bowed
themselves.
And he said, What meanest thou by all this drove which I met? And
he said, These are to find grace in the sight of my lord.
And Esau said, I have enough, my brother; keep that thou hast
unto thyself.
And Jacob said, Nay, I pray thee, if now I have found grace in thy
sight, then receive my present at my hand: for therefore I have seen
thy face, as though I had seen the face of God, and thou wast
pleased with me.
Take, I pray thee, my blessing that is brought to thee; because God
hath dealt graciously with me, and because I have enough. And he
urged him, and he took it.
¶ And he said, Let us take our journey, and let us go, and I will go
before thee.

81 Genesis 34
And he said unto him, My lord knoweth that the children are
tender, and the flocks and herds with young are with me; and if
men should overdrive them one day, all the flock will die.
Let my lord, I pray thee, pass over before his servant; and I will lead
on softly, according as the cattle that goeth before me and the
children be able to endure, until I come unto my lord unto Seir.
¶ And Esau said, Let me now leave with thee some of the folk that
are with me. And he said, What needeth it? let me find grace in the
sight of my lord.
So Esau returned that day on his way unto Seir.
And Jacob journeyed to Succoth, and built him a house, and made
booths for his cattle: therefore the name of the place is called
Succoth [booths].
¶ And Jacob came to Shalem, a city of Shechem, which is in the
land of Canaan, when he came from Padan-aram; and pitched his
tent before the city.
And he bought a parcel of a field, where he had spread his tent, at
the hand of the children of Hamor, Shechem’s father, for a
hundred pieces of money.
And he erected there an altar, and called it El-Elohe-Israel [God the
God of Israel].

The Defilement of Dinah Avenged
And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went
out to see the daughters of the land.
And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the
country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.
And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved
the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel.
And Shechem spake unto his father Hamor, saying, Get me this
damsel to wife.

And Jacob heard that he had defiled Dinah his daughter: now his
sons were with his cattle in the field: and Jacob held his peace until
they were come.
And Hamor the father of Shechem went out unto Jacob to
commune with him.
And the sons of Jacob came out of the field when they heard it: and
the men were grieved, and they were very wroth, because he had
wrought folly in Israel in lying with Jacob’s daughter; which thing
ought not to be done.
¶ And Hamor communed with them, saying, The soul of my son
Shechem longeth for your daughter: I pray you give her him to
wife.
And make ye marriages with us, and give your daughters unto us,
and take our daughters unto you.
And ye shall dwell with us: and the land shall be before you; dwell
and trade ye therein, and get you possessions therein.
And Shechem said unto her father and unto her brethren, Let me
find grace in your eyes, and what ye shall say unto me I will give.
Ask me never so much dowry and gift, and I will give according as
ye shall say unto me: but give me the damsel to wife.
¶ And the sons of Jacob answered Shechem and Hamor his father
deceitfully, and said, because he had defiled Dinah their sister:
and they said unto them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister
to one that is uncircumcised; for that were a reproach unto us:
but in this will we consent unto you: If ye will be as we be, that
every male of you be circumcised;
then will we give our daughters unto you, and we will take your
daughters to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will become
one people.
But if ye will not hearken unto us, to be circumcised; then will we
take our daughter, and we will be gone.
¶ And their words pleased Hamor and Shechem Hamor’s son.
And the young man deferred not to do the thing, because he had
delight in Jacob’s daughter: and he was more honorable than all the
house of his father.

83 Genesis 34
And Hamor and Shechem his son came unto the gate of their city,
and communed with the men of their city, saying,
These men are peaceable with us; therefore let them dwell in the
land, and trade therein; for the land, behold, it is large enough for
them; let us take their daughters to us for wives, and let us give
them our daughters.
Only herein will the men consent unto us for to dwell with us, to
be one people, if every male among us be circumcised, as they are
circumcised.
Shall not their cattle and their substance and every beast of theirs be
ours? only let us consent unto them, and they will dwell with us.
And unto Hamor and unto Shechem his son hearkened all that
went out of the gate of his city; and every male was circumcised, all
that went out of the gate of his city.
¶ And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore, that
two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah’s brethren, took
each man his sword, and came upon the city boldly, and slew all the
males.
And they slew Hamor and Shechem his son with the edge of the
sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem’s house, and went out.
The sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and spoiled the city, because
they had defiled their sister.
They took their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses, and that
which was in the city, and that which was in the field,
and all their wealth, and all their little ones, and their wives took
they captive, and spoiled even all that was in the house.
And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make
me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the
Canaanites and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall
gather themselves together against me, and slay me; and I shall be
destroyed, I and my house.
And they said, Should he deal with our sister as with a harlot?

God Blesses Jacob at Beth-el
And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Beth-el, and dwell there:
and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when
thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.
Then Jacob said unto his household, and to all that were with him,
Put away the strange gods that are among you, and be clean, and
change your garments:
and let us arise, and go up to Beth-el; and I will make there an altar
unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was
with me in the way which I went.
And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their
hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid
them under the oak which was by Shechem.
¶ And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities
that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons
of Jacob.
So Jacob came to Luz which is in the land of Canaan, that is, Bethel,
he and all the people that were with him.
And he built there an altar, and called the place El-beth-el [the God
of Beth-el]; because there God appeared unto him, when he fled
from the face of his brother.
But Deborah Rebekah’s nurse died, and she was buried beneath
Beth-el under an oak: and the name of it was called Allon-bachuth
[the oak of weeping].
¶ And God appeared unto Jacob again, when he came out of Padanaram,
and blessed him.
And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be
called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name; and he called
his name Israel.
And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and
multiply: a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and
kings shall come out of thy loins;

And God went up from him in the place where he talked with him.
And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked with him, even
a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering thereon, and he
poured oil thereon.
And Jacob called the name of the place where God spake with him,
Beth-el.
The Death of Rachel
¶ And they journeyed from Beth-el; and there was but a little way
to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labor.
And it came to pass, when she was in hard labor, that the midwife
said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.
And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died,)
that she called his name Benoni [the son of my sorrow]: but his
father called him Benjamin [the son of the right hand].
And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is
Bethlehem.
And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel’s
grave unto this day.
And Israel journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar.
The Sons of Jacob
¶ And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben
went and lay with Bilhah his father’s concubine: and Israel heard it.
Now the sons of Jacob were twelve:
the sons of Leah; Reuben, Jacob’s firstborn, and Simeon, and Levi,
and Judah, and Issachar, and Zebulun:
the sons of Rachel; Joseph, and Benjamin:
and the sons of Bilhah, Rachel’s handmaid; Dan, and Naphtali:
and the sons of Zilpah, Leah’s handmaid; Gad, and Asher. These are
the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Padan-aram.

of Arba, which is Hebron, where Abraham and Isaac sojourned.
And the days of Isaac were a hundred and fourscore years.
And Isaac gave up the ghost, and died, and was gathered unto his
people, being old and full of days: and his sons Esau and Jacob
buried him.
36
The Descendants of Esau
Now these are the generations of Esau, who is Edom.
Esau took his wives of the daughters of Canaan; Adah the daughter
of Elon the Hittite, and Aholibamah the daughter of Anah the
daughter of Zibeon the Hivite;
and Bashemath Ishmael’s daughter, sister of Nebajoth.
And Adah bare to Esau Eliphaz, and Bashemath bare Reuel;
and Aholibamah bare Jeush, and Jaalam, and Korah: these are the
sons of Esau, which were born unto him in the land of Canaan.
¶ And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all
the persons of his house, and his cattle, and all his beasts, and all his
substance, which he had got in the land of Canaan; and went into
the country from the face of his brother Jacob.
For their riches were more than that they might dwell together;
and the land wherein they were strangers could not bear them
because of their cattle.
Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom.
¶ And these are the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites
in mount Seir:
these are the names of Esau’s sons; Eliphaz the son of Adah the wife
of Esau, Reuel the son of Bashemath the wife of Esau.
And the sons of Eliphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, and Gatam,
and Kenaz.

And these are the sons of Reuel; Nahath, and Zerah, Shammah,
and Mizzah: these were the sons of Bashemath Esau’s wife.
And these were the sons of Aholibamah, the daughter of Anah the
daughter of Zibeon, Esau’s wife: and she bare to Esau Jeush, and
Jaalam, and Korah.
¶ These were dukes of the sons of Esau: the sons of Eliphaz the
firstborn son of Esau; duke Teman, duke Omar, duke Zepho, duke
Kenaz,
duke Korah, duke Gatam, and duke Amalek: these are the dukes
that came of Eliphaz in the land of Edom: these were the sons of
Adah.
And these are the sons of Reuel Esau’s son; duke Nahath, duke

And these are the sons of Aholibamah Esau’s wife; duke Jeush, duke
Jaalam, duke Korah: these were the dukes that came of Aholibamah
the daughter of Anah, Esau’s wife.
These are the sons of Esau, who is Edom, and these are their dukes.
¶ These are the sons of Seir the Horite, who inhabited the land;
Lotan, and Shobal, and Zibeon, and Anah,
and Dishon, and Ezer, and Dishan: these are the dukes of the
Horites, the children of Seir in the land of Edom.
And the children of Lotan were Hori and Hemam; and Lotan’s
sister was Timna.
And the children of Shobal were these; Alvan, and Manahath, and
Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
And these are the children of Zibeon; both Ajah, and Anah: this
was that Anah that found the mules in the wilderness, as he fed the
asses of Zibeon his father.
And the children of Anah were these; Dishon, and Aholibamah the
daughter of Anah.

there reigned any king over the children of Israel.
And Bela the son of Beor reigned in Edom: and the name of his city

And Baal-hanan the son of Achbor died, and Hadar reigned in his

Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab.
¶ And these are the names of the dukes that came of Esau, according
to their families, after their places, by their names; duke Timnah,
duke Alvah, duke Jetheth,
duke Aholibamah, duke Elah, duke Pinon,
duke Kenaz, duke Teman, duke Mibzar,

Joseph Sold into Egypt
And Jacob dwelt in the land wherein his father was a stranger, in
the land of Canaan.
These are the generations of Jacob.
¶ Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his
brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the
sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives: and Joseph brought unto his
father their evil report.
Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was
the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colors.
And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than
all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably
unto him.
¶ And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and
they hated him yet the more.
And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have
dreamed:
for, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf
arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood
round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.
And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or
shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet
the more for his dreams, and for his words.
And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and
said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun
and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father
rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast
dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to
bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?
And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.
¶ And his brethren went to feed their father’s flock in Shechem.

And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed the flock in
Shechem? come, and I will send thee unto them. And he said to
him, Here am I.
And he said to him, Go, I pray thee, see whether it be well with thy
brethren, and well with the flocks; and bring me word again. So he
sent him out of the vale of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.
And a certain man found him, and, behold, he was wandering in
the field: and the man asked him, saying, What seekest thou?
And he said, I seek my brethren: tell me, I pray thee, where they
feed their flocks.
And the man said, They are departed hence; for I heard them say,
Let us go to Dothan. And Joseph went after his brethren, and found
them in Dothan.
And when they saw him afar off, even before he came near unto
them, they conspired against him to slay him.
And they said one to another, Behold, this dreamer cometh.
Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some
pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him; and we
shall see what will become of his dreams.
And Reuben heard it, and he delivered him out of their hands; and
said, Let us not kill him.
And Reuben said unto them, Shed no blood, but cast him into this
pit that is in the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him; that he
might rid him out of their hands, to deliver him to his father again.
And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that
they stripped Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colors that was
on him;
and they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty,
there was no water in it.
¶ And they sat down to eat bread: and they lifted up their eyes and
looked, and, behold, a company of Ishmaelites came from Gilead,
with their camels bearing spicery and balm and myrrh, going to
carry it down to Egypt.
And Judah said unto his brethren, What profit is it if we slay our
brother, and conceal his blood?

were content.
Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and
lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites
for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.
¶ And Reuben returned unto the pit; and, behold, Joseph was not
in the pit; and he rent his clothes.
And he returned unto his brethren, and said, The child is not; and
I, whither shall I go?
And they took Joseph’s coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and
dipped the coat in the blood;
and they sent the coat of many colors, and they brought it to their
father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be thy
son’s coat or no.
And he knew it, and said, It is my son’s coat; an evil beast hath
devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.
And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and
mourned for his son many days.
And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but
he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the
grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him.
And the Midianites sold him into Egypt unto Potiphar, an officer of
Pharaoh’s, and captain of the guard.
38
Judah and Tamar
And it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his
brethren, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name was
Hirah.
And Judah saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose
name was Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her.
And she conceived, and bare a son; and he called his name Er.

And she conceived again, and bare a son; and she called his name

And she yet again conceived, and bare a son; and called his name
Shelah: and he was at Chezib, when she bare him.
And Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was Tamar.
And Er, Judah’s firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the Lord; and
the Lord slew him.
And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and
marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.
And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to
pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on
the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.
And the thing which he did displeased the Lord: wherefore he
slew him also.
Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter-in-law, Remain a widow at
thy father’s house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest
peradventure he die also, as his brethren did. And Tamar went and
dwelt in her father’s house.
¶ And in process of time the daughter of Shuah Judah’s wife died;
and Judah was comforted, and went up unto his sheepshearers to
Timnath, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite.
And it was told Tamar, saying, Behold, thy father-in-law goeth up
to Timnath to shear his sheep.
And she put her widow’s garments off from her, and covered her
with a veil, and wrapped herself, and sat in an open place, which is
by the way to Timnath; for she saw that Shelah was grown, and she
was not given unto him to wife.
When Judah saw her, he thought her to be a harlot; because she had
covered her face.
And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let
me come in unto thee; (for he knew not that she was his daughterin-law:)
and she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest
come in unto me?
And he said, I will send thee a kid from the flock. And she said, Wilt
thou give me a pledge, till thou send it?

gave it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him.
And she arose, and went away, and laid by her veil from her, and
put on the garments of her widowhood.
¶ And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullamite,
to receive his pledge from the woman’s hand: but he found her not.
Then he asked the men of that place, saying, Where is the harlot,
that was openly by the wayside? And they said, There was no harlot
in this place.
And he returned to Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the
men of the place said, that there was no harlot in this place.
And Judah said, Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed: behold, I
sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.
¶ And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told
Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter-in-law hath played the harlot;
and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said,
Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.
When she was brought forth she sent to her father-in-law, saying,
By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, Discern,
I pray thee, whose are these, the signet, and bracelets, and staff.
And Judah acknowledged them, and said, She hath been more
righteous than I; because that I gave her not to Shelah my son. And
he knew her again no more.
¶ And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins
were in her womb.
And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his
hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a scarlet
thread, saying, This came out first.
And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his
brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? this
breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.
And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread
upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.

Joseph and Potiphar’s Wife
And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of
Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the
hands of the Ishmaelites, which had brought him down thither.
And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and
he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.
And his master saw that the Lord was with him, and that the
Lord made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he
made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into
his hand.
And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in
his house, and over all that he had, that the Lord blessed the
Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord
was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.
And he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand; and he knew not aught
he had, save the bread which he did eat.
¶ And Joseph was a goodly person, and well-favored.
And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her
eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.
But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master
wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed
all that he hath to my hand;
there is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back
any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then
can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?
And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he
hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.
And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house
to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there
within.

And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in

that she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them,
saying, See, he hath brought in a Hebrew unto us to mock us; he
came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:
and it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and
cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.
And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.
And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The
Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto
me to mock me:
and it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his
garment with me, and fled out.
¶ And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife,
which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy
servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.
And Joseph’s master took him, and put him into the prison, a place
where the king’s prisoners were bound: and he was there in the
prison.
But the Lord was with Joseph, and showed him mercy, and gave
him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph’s hand all the
prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he
was the doer of it.
The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his
hand; because the Lord was with him, and that which he did, the
Lord made it to prosper.

Joseph Interprets the Prisoners’ Dreams
And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of the king of
Egypt and his baker had offended their lord the king of Egypt.
And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers, against the chief
of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers.
And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard,
into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound.
And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he
served them: and they continued a season in ward.
And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in
one night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream,
the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in
the prison.
And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon
them, and, behold, they were sad.
And he asked Pharaoh’s officers that were with him in the ward of
his lord’s house, saying, Wherefore look ye so sadly today?
And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no
interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations
belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.
¶ And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In
my dream, behold, a vine was before me;
and in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it budded,
and her blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought forth
ripe grapes:
and Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand: and I took the grapes, and
pressed them into Pharaoh’s cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh’s
hand.
And Joseph said unto him, This is the interpretation of it: The three
branches are three days:

yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head, and restore
thee unto thy place; and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh’s cup into his
hand, after the former manner when thou wast his butler.
But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and show
kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto
Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:
for indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: and
here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the
dungeon.
¶ When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he
said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, I had three
white baskets on my head:
and in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of bakemeats
for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my
head.
And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof:
The three baskets are three days:
yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee,
and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from
off thee.
¶ And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday,
that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head
of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants.
And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he
gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand:
but he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.
Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.

Joseph Interprets Pharaoh’s Dream
And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh
dreamed: and, behold, he stood by the river.

And, behold, there came up out of the river seven well-favored kine
and fat-fleshed; and they fed in a meadow.
And, behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river,
ill-favored and lean-fleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the
brink of the river.
And the ill-favored and lean-fleshed kine did eat up the seven wellfavored
and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.
And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears
of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good.
And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung
up after them.
And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And
Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.
And it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled; and
he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt, and all the wise
men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there was none
that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.
¶ Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember
my faults this day:
Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in ward in the
captain of the guard’s house, both me and the chief baker:
and we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each
man according to the interpretation of his dream.
And there was there with us a young man, a Hebrew, servant to the
captain of the guard; and we told him, and he interpreted to us our
dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret.
And it came to pass, as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he
restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.
¶ Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him
hastily out of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his
raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is
none that can interpret it: and I have heard say of thee, that thou
canst understand a dream to interpret it.

And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God shall
give Pharaoh an answer of peace.
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon
the bank of the river:
and, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fat-fleshed
and well-favored; and they fed in a meadow:
and, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very
ill-favored and lean-fleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of
Egypt for badness:
and the lean and the ill-favored kine did eat up the first seven fat
kine:
and when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they
had eaten them; but they were still ill-favored, as at the beginning.
So I awoke.
And I saw in my dream, and, behold, seven ears came up in one
stalk, full and good:
and, behold, seven ears, withered, thin, and blasted with the east
wind, sprung up after them:
and the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and I told this unto
the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.
¶ And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: God
hath showed Pharaoh what he is about to do.
The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are
seven years: the dream is one.
And the seven thin and ill-favored kine that came up after them are
seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind
shall be seven years of famine.
This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God is
about to do he showeth unto Pharaoh.
Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the
land of Egypt:
and there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the
plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall
consume the land;

and the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that
famine following; for it shall be very grievous.
And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is
because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring
it to pass.
Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and
set him over the land of Egypt.
Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and
take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous
years.
And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and
lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in
the cities.
And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years
of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish
not through the famine.
Joseph Made Ruler over Egypt
¶ And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of
all his servants.
And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this
is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath showed
thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art:
thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all
my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land
of Egypt.
And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon
Joseph’s hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a
gold chain about his neck;
and he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and
they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over
all the land of Egypt.

And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee
shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.
And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnath-paaneah; and he gave
him to wife Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And
Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.
¶ And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh
king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh,
and went throughout all the land of Egypt.
And in the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth by
handfuls.
And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in
the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the
field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same.
And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until
he left numbering; for it was without number.
¶ And unto Joseph were born two sons, before the years of famine
came: which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare
unto him.
And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh [forgetting]:
For God, said he, hath made me forget all my toil, and all my
father’s house.
And the name of the second called he Ephraim [fruitful]: For God
hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.
¶ And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of
Egypt, were ended.
And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph
had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of
Egypt there was bread.
And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to
Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go
unto Joseph; what he saith to you, do.
And the famine was over all the face of the earth: and Joseph
opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the
famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt.

Joseph’s Brethren Come to Egypt for Grain
Now when Jacob saw that there was corn in Egypt, Jacob said unto
his sons, Why do ye look one upon another?
And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is corn in Egypt: get
you down thither, and buy for us from thence; that we may live,
and not die.
And Joseph’s ten brethren went down to buy corn in Egypt.
But Benjamin, Joseph’s brother, Jacob sent not with his brethren;
for he said, Lest peradventure mischief befall him.
And the sons of Israel came to buy corn among those that came: for
the famine was in the land of Canaan.
¶ And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that sold
to all the people of the land: and Joseph’s brethren came, and
bowed down themselves before him with their faces to the earth.
And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made himself
strange unto them, and spake roughly unto them; and he said unto
them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan
to buy food.
And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him.
And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them,
and said unto them, Ye are spies; to see the nakedness of the land ye
are come.
And they said unto him, Nay, my lord, but to buy food are thy
servants come.
We are all one man’s sons; we are true men; thy servants are no
spies.
And he said unto them, Nay, but to see the nakedness of the land ye
are come.

103 Genesis 42
And they said, Thy servants are twelve brethren, the sons of one
man in the land of Canaan; and, behold, the youngest is this day
with our father, and one is not.
And Joseph said unto them, That is it that I spake unto you, saying,
Ye are spies:
hereby ye shall be proved: By the life of Pharaoh ye shall not go
forth hence, except your youngest brother come hither.
Send one of you, and let him fetch your brother, and ye shall be
kept in prison, that your words may be proved, whether there be any
truth in you: or else by the life of Pharaoh surely ye are spies.
And he put them all together into ward three days.
¶ And Joseph said unto them the third day, This do, and live; for I
fear God:
if ye be true men, let one of your brethren be bound in the house of
your prison: go ye, carry corn for the famine of your houses:
but bring your youngest brother unto me; so shall your words be
verified, and ye shall not die. And they did so.
And they said one to another. We are verily guilty concerning our
brother, in that we saw the anguish of his soul, when he besought
us, and we would not hear; therefore is this distress come upon us.
And Reuben answered them, saying, Spake I not unto you, saying,
Do not sin against the child; and ye would not hear? therefore,
behold, also his blood is required.
And they knew not that Joseph understood them; for he spake unto
them by an interpreter.
And he turned himself about from them, and wept; and returned to
them again, and communed with them, and took from them
Simeon, and bound him before their eyes.
Then Joseph commanded to fill their sacks with corn, and to
restore every man’s money into his sack, and to give them
provision for the way: and thus did he unto them.
¶ And they laded their asses with the corn, and departed thence.
And as one of them opened his sack to give his ass provender in the
inn, he espied his money; for, behold, it was in his sack’s mouth.

And he said unto his brethren, My money is restored; and, lo, it is
even in my sack: and their heart failed them, and they were afraid,
saying one to another, What is this that God hath done unto us?
¶ And they came unto Jacob their father unto the land of Canaan,
and told him all that befell unto them; saying,
The man, who is the lord of the land, spake roughly to us, and took
us for spies of the country.
And we said unto him, We are true men; we are no spies:
we be twelve brethren, sons of our father; one is not, and the
youngest is this day with our father in the land of Canaan.
And the man, the lord of the country, said unto us, Hereby shall I
know that ye are true men; leave one of your brethren here with me,
and take food for the famine of your households, and be gone:
and bring your youngest brother unto me: then shall I know that ye
are no spies, but that ye are true men: so will I deliver you your
brother, and ye shall traffic in the land.
¶ And it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, that, behold,
every man’s bundle of money was in his sack: and when both they
and their father saw the bundles of money, they were afraid.
And Jacob their father said unto them, Me have ye bereaved of my
children: Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and ye will take
Benjamin away: all these things are against me.
And Reuben spake unto his father, saying, Slay my two sons, if I
bring him not to thee: deliver him into my hand, and I will bring
him to thee again.
And he said, My son shall not go down with you; for his brother is
dead, and he is left alone: if mischief befall him by the way in the
which ye go, then shall ye bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to
the grave.

And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they
had brought out of Egypt, their father said unto them, Go again,
buy us a little food.
And Judah spake unto him, saying, The man did solemnly protest
unto us, saying, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be
with you.
If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy thee
food:
but if thou wilt not send him, we will not go down: for the man said
unto us, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.
And Israel said, Wherefore dealt ye so ill with me, as to tell the man
whether ye had yet a brother?
And they said, The man asked us straitly of our state, and of our
kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have ye another brother?
and we told him according to the tenor of these words: Could we
certainly know that he would say, Bring your brother down?
And Judah said unto Israel his father, Send the lad with me, and we
will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and thou,
and also our little ones.
I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him: if I
bring him not unto thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear
the blame for ever:
for except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second
time.
¶ And their father Israel said unto them, If it must be so now, do
this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry
down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices and
myrrh, nuts and almonds:
and take double money in your hand; and the money that was
brought again in the mouth of your sacks, carry it again in your
hand; peradventure it was an oversight.
Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the man:
and God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may
send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be bereaved of my
children, I am bereaved.

And the men took that present, and they took double money in
their hand, and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt,
and stood before Joseph.
¶ And when Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the ruler
of his house, Bring these men home, and slay, and make ready; for
these men shall dine with me at noon.
And the man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men
into Joseph’s house.
And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Joseph’s
house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in
our sacks at the first time are we brought in; that he may seek
occasion against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and
our asses.
And they came near to the steward of Joseph’s house, and they
communed with him at the door of the house,
and said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food:
and it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that we opened our
sacks, and, behold, every man’s money was in the mouth of his sack,
our money in full weight: and we have brought it again in our
hand.
And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food:
we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks.
And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: your God, and the God of
your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks: I had your
money. And he brought Simeon out unto them.
And the man brought the men into Joseph’s house, and gave them
water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses
provender.
And they made ready the present against Joseph came at noon: for
they heard that they should eat bread there.
¶ And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present
which was in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to
him to the earth.
And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the
old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?

And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his
mother’s son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye
spake unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.
And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother:
and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and
wept there.
And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and
said, Set on bread.
And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves,
and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves:
because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for
that is an abomination unto the Egyptians.
And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright,
and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marveled
one at another.
And he took and sent messes unto them from before him: but
Benjamin’s mess was five times so much as any of theirs. And they
drank, and were merry with him.
44
The Missing Cup
And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the men’s
sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man’s
money in his sack’s mouth.
And put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack’s mouth of the youngest,
and his corn money. And he did according to the word that Joseph
had spoken.
As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they
and their asses.
And when they were gone out of the city, and not yet far off, Joseph
said unto his steward, Up, follow after the men; and when thou

dost overtake them, say unto them, Wherefore have ye rewarded
evil for good?
Is not this it in which my lord drinketh, and whereby indeed he
divineth? ye have done evil in so doing.
¶ And he overtook them, and he spake unto them these same
words.
And they said unto him, Wherefore saith my lord these words?
God forbid that thy servants should do according to this thing:
behold, the money, which we found in our sacks’ mouths, we
brought again unto thee out of the land of Canaan: how then
should we steal out of thy lord’s house silver or gold?
With whomsoever of thy servants it be found, both let him die, and
we also will be my lord’s bondmen.
And he said, Now also let it be according unto your words: he with
whom it is found shall be my servant; and ye shall be blameless.
Then they speedily took down every man his sack to the ground,
and opened every man his sack.
And he searched, and began at the eldest, and left at the youngest:
and the cup was found in Benjamin’s sack.
Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and
returned to the city.
¶ And Judah and his brethren came to Joseph’s house; for he was yet
there: and they fell before him on the ground.
And Joseph said unto them, What deed is this that ye have done?
wot ye not that such a man as I can certainly divine?
And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we
speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the
iniquity of thy servants: behold, we are my lord’s servants, both we,
and he also with whom the cup is found.
And he said, God forbid that I should do so: but the man in whose
hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, get
you up in peace unto your father.

Judah Pleads for Benjamin
¶ Then Judah came near unto him, and said, O my lord, let thy
servant, I pray thee, speak a word in my lord’s ears, and let not
thine anger burn against thy servant: for thou art even as Pharaoh.
My lord asked his servants, saying, Have ye a father, or a brother?
And we said unto my lord, We have a father, an old man, and a
child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he
alone is left of his mother, and his father loveth him.
And thou saidst unto thy servants, Bring him down unto me, that I
may set mine eyes upon him.
And we said unto my lord, The lad cannot leave his father: for if he
should leave his father, his father would die.
And thou saidst unto thy servants, Except your youngest brother
come down with you, ye shall see my face no more.
And it came to pass when we came up unto thy servant my father,
we told him the words of my lord.
And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food.
And we said, We cannot go down: if our youngest brother be with
us, then will we go down: for we may not see the man’s face, except
our youngest brother be with us.
And thy servant my father said unto us, Ye know that my wife bare
me two sons:
and the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in
pieces; and I saw him not since:
and if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, ye shall
bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.
Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, and the lad be
not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad’s life;
it shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with us, that
he will die: and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of thy
servant our father with sorrow to the grave.
For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father, saying, If
I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my father
for ever.

peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.
45
Joseph Makes Himself Known to His Brethren
Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by
him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there
stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto
his brethren.
And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh
heard.
And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet
live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were
troubled at his presence.
¶ And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you.
And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom
ye sold into Egypt.
Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye
sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.
For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there
are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.
And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the
earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.
So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath
made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler
throughout all the land of Egypt.
Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy
son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto
me, tarry not:

thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast:
and there will I nourish thee; for yet there are five years of famine;
lest thou, and thy household, and all that thou hast, come to
poverty.
And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin,
that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you.
And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that
ye have seen; and ye shall haste and bring down my father hither.
And he fell upon his brother Benjamin’s neck, and wept; and
Benjamin wept upon his neck.
Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them: and after
that his brethren talked with him.
¶ And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh’s house, saying,
Joseph’s brethren are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his
servants.
And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Say unto thy brethren, This do ye;
lade your beasts, and go, get you unto the land of Canaan;
and take your father and your households, and come unto me: and
I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the fat
of the land.
Now thou art commanded, this do ye; take you wagons out of the
land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring
your father, and come.
Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is
yours.
¶ And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons,
according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them
provision for the way.
To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to
Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of
raiment.

112 Genesis 46
And to his father he sent after this manner; ten asses laden with the
good things of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corn and bread
and meat for his father by the way.
So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and he said unto
them, See that ye fall not out by the way.
And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan
unto Jacob their father,
and told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all
the land of Egypt. And Jacob’s heart fainted, for he believed them
not.
And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto
them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry
him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived.
And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and
see him before I die.
46
Jacob and His Family in Egypt
And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba,
and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac.
And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said,
Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.
And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down
into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation.
I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring
thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.
And Jacob rose up from Beer-sheba: and the sons of Israel carried
Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the
wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him.
And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had gotten
in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed
with him:

his sons, and his sons’ sons with him, his daughters, and his sons’

¶ And these are the names of the children of Israel, which came
into Egypt, Jacob and his sons: Reuben, Jacob’s firstborn.
And the sons of Reuben; Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and
Carmi.
And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin,
and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman.
And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
And the sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Pharez, and
Zarah: but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan. And the sons
of Pharez were Hezron and Hamul.
And the sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron.
And the sons of Zebulun; Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.
These be the sons of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob in Padanaram,
with his daughter Dinah: all the souls of his sons and his
daughters were thirty and three.
And the sons of Gad; Ziphion, and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri,
and Arodi, and Areli.
And the sons of Asher; Jimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and Beriah,
and Serah their sister: and the sons of Beriah; Heber, and Malchiel.
These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his
daughter; and these she bare unto Jacob, even sixteen souls.
The sons of Rachel Jacob’s wife; Joseph, and Benjamin.
And unto Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and
Ephraim, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On
bare unto him.
And the sons of Benjamin were Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel,
Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and
Ard.
These are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob: all the
souls were fourteen.
And the sons of Dan; Hushim.
And the sons of Naphtali; Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer, and
Shillem.

All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out of
his loins, besides Jacob’s sons’ wives, all the souls were threescore
and six;
and the sons of Joseph, which were borne him in Egypt, were two
souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt,
were threescore and ten.
¶ And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to direct his face unto
Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.
And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his
father, to Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on
his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.
And Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen thy
face, because thou art yet alive.
And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father’s house, I
will go up, and show Pharaoh, and say unto him, My brethren, and
my father’s house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto
me;
and the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle;
and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that
they have.
And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall
say, What is your occupation?
That ye shall say, Thy servants’ trade hath been about cattle from
our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye
may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an
abomination unto the Egyptians.
47
Then Joseph came and told Pharaoh, and said, My father and my
brethren, and their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have,
are come out of the land of Canaan; and, behold, they are in the
land of Goshen.

they said unto Pharaoh, Thy servants are shepherds, both we, and
also our fathers.
They said moreover unto Pharaoh, For to sojourn in the land are
we come; for thy servants have no pasture for their flocks; for the
famine is sore in the land of Canaan: now therefore, we pray thee,
let thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen.
And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy
brethren are come unto thee:
the land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy
father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell:
and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make
them rulers over my cattle.
¶ And Joseph brought in Jacob his father, and set him before
Pharaoh: and Jacob blessed Pharaoh.
And Pharaoh said unto Jacob, How old art thou?
And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my
pilgrimage are a hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the
days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the
days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their
pilgrimage.
And Jacob blessed Pharaoh, and went out from before Pharaoh.
And Joseph placed his father and his brethren, and gave them a
possession in the land of Egypt, in the best of the land, in the land
of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded.
And Joseph nourished his father, and his brethren, and all his
father’s household, with bread, according to their families.
¶ And there was no bread in all the land; for the famine was very
sore, so that the land of Egypt and all the land of Canaan fainted by
reason of the famine.
And Joseph gathered up all the money that was found in the land of
Egypt, and in the land of Canaan, for the corn which they bought:
and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh’s house.

And when money failed in the land of Egypt, and in the land of
Canaan, all the Egyptians came unto Joseph, and said, Give us
bread: for why should we die in thy presence? for the money
faileth.
And Joseph said, Give your cattle; and I will give you for your
cattle, if money fail.
And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them
bread in exchange for horses, and for the flocks, and for the cattle of
the herds, and for the asses; and he fed them with bread for all their
cattle for that year.
When that year was ended, they came unto him the second year,
and said unto him, We will not hide it from my lord, how that our
money is spent; my lord also hath our herds of cattle; there is not
aught left in the sight of my lord, but our bodies, and our lands:
wherefore shall we die before thine eyes, both we and our land?
buy us and our land for bread, and we and our land will be servants
unto Pharaoh: and give us seed, that we may live, and not die, that
the land be not desolate.
¶ And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for the
Egyptians sold every man his field, because the famine prevailed
over them: so the land became Pharaoh’s.
And as for the people, he removed them to cities from one end of
the borders of Egypt even to the other end thereof.
Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a
portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which
Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.
Then Joseph said unto the people, Behold, I have bought you this
day and your land for Pharaoh: lo, here is seed for you, and ye shall
sow the land.
And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth
part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own, for seed of the
field, and for your food, and for them of your households, and for
food for your little ones.
And they said, Thou hast saved our lives: let us find grace in the
sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh’s servants.

only, which became not Pharaoh’s.
¶ And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen;
and they had possessions therein, and grew, and multiplied
exceedingly.
And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole
age of Jacob was a hundred forty and seven years.
¶ And the time drew nigh that Israel must die: and he called his son
Joseph, and said unto him, If now I have found grace in thy sight,
put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh, and deal kindly and
truly with me; bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt:
but I will lie with my fathers, and thou shalt carry me out of Egypt,
and bury me in their buryingplace. And he said, I will do as thou
hast said.
And he said, Swear unto me. And he sware unto him. And Israel
bowed himself upon the bed’s head.
48
Jacob Blesses Ephraim and Manasseh
And it came to pass after these things, that one told Joseph, Behold,
thy father is sick: and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and
Ephraim.
And one told Jacob, and said, Behold, thy son Joseph cometh unto
thee: and Israel strengthened himself, and sat upon the bed.
And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me at
Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me,
and said unto me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply
thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will give
this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession.
And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born
unto thee in the land of Egypt, before I came unto thee into Egypt,
are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.

And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the
land of Canaan in the way, when yet there was but a little way to
come unto Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath;
the same is Bethlehem.
¶ And Israel beheld Joseph’s sons, and said, Who are these?
And Joseph said unto his father, They are my sons, whom God hath
given me in this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray thee, unto
me, and I will bless them.
Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see.
And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed them, and
embraced them.
And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and,
lo, God hath showed me also thy seed.
And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he
bowed himself with his face to the earth.
And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward
Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel’s
right hand, and brought them near unto him.
And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim’s
head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh’s
head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.
And he blessed Joseph, and said,
God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk,
the God which fed me all my life long unto this day,
the angel which redeemed me from all evil,
bless the lads;
and let my name be named on them,
and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac;
and let them grow into a multitude
in the midst of the earth.
¶ And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the
head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father’s
hand, to remove it from Ephraim’s head unto Manasseh’s head.

also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his
younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become
a multitude of nations.
And he blessed them that day, saying,
In thee shall Israel bless, saying,
God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh:
and he set Ephraim before Manasseh.
And Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die; but God shall be with
you, and bring you again unto the land of your fathers.
Moreover I have given to thee one portion above thy brethren,
which I took out of the hand of the Amorite with my sword and
with my bow.

Jacob’s Prophecy concerning His Sons
And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves
together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last
days.
Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob;
and hearken unto Israel your father.
Reuben, thou art my firstborn,
my might, and the beginning of my strength,
the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power:
unstable as water, thou shalt not excel;
because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed;
then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch.
Simeon and Levi are brethren;
instruments of cruelty are in their habitations.
O my soul, come not thou into their secret;
unto their assembly, mine honor, be not thou united:

and in their self-will they digged down a wall.
Cursed be their anger, for it was fierce;
and their wrath, for it was cruel:
I will divide them in Jacob,
and scatter them in Israel.
Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise:
thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies;
thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.
Judah is a lion’s whelp:
from the prey, my son, thou art gone up:
he stooped down, he couched as a lion,
and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?
The sceptre shall not depart from Judah,
nor a lawgiver from between his feet,
until Shiloh come;
and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.
Binding his foal unto the vine,
and his ass’s colt unto the choice vine;
he washed his garments in wine,
and his clothes in the blood of grapes:
his eyes shall be red with wine,
and his teeth white with milk.
Zebulun shall dwell at the haven of the sea;
and he shall be for a haven of ships;
and his border shall be unto Zidon.
Issachar is a strong ass
couching down between two burdens:
and he saw that rest was good,
and the land that it was pleasant;
and bowed his shoulder to bear,
and became a servant unto tribute.
Dan shall judge his people,
as one of the tribes of Israel.
Dan shall be a serpent by the way,

Gad, a troop shall overcome him:
but he shall overcome at the last.
Out of Asher his bread shall be fat,
and he shall yield royal dainties.
Naphtali is a hind let loose:
he giveth goodly words.
Joseph is a fruitful bough,
even a fruitful bough by a well;
whose branches run over the wall:
the archers have sorely grieved him,
and shot at him, and hated him:
but his bow abode in strength,
and the arms of his hands were made strong
by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob;
(from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel;)
even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee;
and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee
with blessings of heaven above,
blessings of the deep that lieth under,
blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:
the blessings of thy father have prevailed
above the blessings of my progenitors
unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills:
they shall be on the head of Joseph,
and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his
brethren.
Benjamin shall raven as a wolf:
in the morning he shall devour the prey,
and at night he shall divide the spoil.

The Death and Burial of Jacob
¶ All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their
father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to
his blessing he blessed them.
And he charged them, and said unto them, I am to be gathered
unto my people: bury me with my fathers in the cave that is in the
field of Ephron the Hittite,
in the cave that is in the field of Machpelah, which is before
Mamre, in the land of Canaan, which Abraham bought with the
field of Ephron the Hittite for a possession of a buryingplace.
There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried
Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah.
The purchase of the field and of the cave that is therein was from
the children of Heth.
And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he
gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was
gathered unto his people.
50
And Joseph fell upon his father’s face, and wept upon him, and
kissed him.
And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his
father: and the physicians embalmed Israel.
And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of
those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him
threescore and ten days.
¶ And when the days of his mourning were past, Joseph spake unto
the house of Pharaoh, saying, If now I have found grace in your
eyes, speak, I pray you, in the ears of Pharaoh, saying,
My father made me swear, saying, Lo, I die: in my grave which I
have digged for me in the land of Canaan, there shalt thou bury
me. Now therefore let me go up, I pray thee, and bury my father,
and I will come again.

And Joseph went up to bury his father: and with him went up all
the servants of Pharaoh, the elders of his house, and all the elders
of the land of Egypt,
and all the house of Joseph, and his brethren, and his father’s
house: only their little ones, and their flocks, and their herds, they
left in the land of Goshen.
And there went up with him both chariots and horsemen: and it
was a very great company.
And they came to the threshingfloor of Atad, which is beyond
Jordan; and there they mourned with a great and very sore
lamentation: and he made a mourning for his father seven days.
And when the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, saw the
mourning in the floor of Atad, they said, This is a grievous
mourning to the Egyptians: wherefore the name of it was called
Abel-mizraim [the mourning of the Egyptians], which is beyond
Jordan.
And his sons did unto him according as he commanded them:
for his sons carried him into the land of Canaan, and buried him in
the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham bought with
the field for a possession of a buryingplace of Ephron the Hittite,
before Mamre.
And Joseph returned into Egypt, he, and his brethren, and all that
went up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father.
The Death of Joseph
¶ And when Joseph’s brethren saw that their father was dead, they
said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us
all the evil which we did unto him.
And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did
command before he died, saying,
So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of
thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now,

father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.
And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they
said, Behold, we be thy servants.
And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?
But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto
good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones.
And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.
¶ And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father’s house: and Joseph
lived a hundred and ten years.
And Joseph saw Ephraim’s children of the third generation: the
children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon
Joseph’s knees.
And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die; and God will surely visit
you, and bring you out of this land unto the land which he sware to
Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will
surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.
So Joseph died, being a hundred and ten years old: and they
embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.

The Second Book of Moses, Called

[Exodus]

The Affliction of the Israelites in Egypt
Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into
Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.
Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah,
Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin,
Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy
souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.
And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.
And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly,
and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was
filled with them.
¶ Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not
Joseph.
And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of
Israel are more and mightier than we:
come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it
come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also
unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of
the land.
Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with
their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom
and Raamses.
But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and
grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.
And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigor:

and they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and
in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service,
wherein they made them serve, was with rigor.
¶ And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which
the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah;
and he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew
women, and see them upon the stools, if it be a son, then ye shall kill
him; but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.
But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt
commanded them, but saved the men children alive.
And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them,
Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children
alive?
And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women
are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are
delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.
Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people
multiplied, and waxed very mighty.
And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he
made them houses.
And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born
ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.

The Birth of Moses
And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a
daughter of Levi.
And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him
that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.
And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark
of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the
child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river’s brink.
And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.

And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the
river; and her maidens walked along by the river’s side: and when
she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.
And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the
babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of
the Hebrews’ children.
Then said his sister to Pharaoh’s daughter, Shall I go and call to thee
a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for
thee?
And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and
called the child’s mother.
And Pharaoh’s daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and
nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took
the child, and nursed it.
And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter,
and he became her son. And she called his name Moses [drawn
out]: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.
Moses Flees from Egypt
¶ And it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he
went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he
spied an Egyptian smiting a Hebrew, one of his brethren.
And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there
was no man, he slew the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand.
And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the
Hebrews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong,
Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?
And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us?
intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses
feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.
Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses.
¶ But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of
Midian: and he sat down by a well.

Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and
drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father’s flock.
And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Moses stood up
and helped them, and watered their flock.
And when they came to Reuel their father, he said, How is it that ye
are come so soon today?
And they said, An Egyptian delivered us out of the hand of the
shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the
flock.
And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye
have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread.
And Moses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Moses
Zipporah his daughter.
And she bare him a son, and he called his name Gershom [a stranger
there]: for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.
¶ And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt
died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage,
and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the
bondage.
And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant
with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.
And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect
unto them.
3
The Call of Moses
Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of
Midian: and he led the flock to the back side of the desert, and
came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out
of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned
with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why
the bush is not burnt.
And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called
unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And
he said, Here am I.
And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy
feet; for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.
Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham,
the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for
he was afraid to look upon God.
¶ And the Lord said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people
which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their
taskmasters; for I know their sorrows;
and I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the
Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land
and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the
place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the
Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come
unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the
Egyptians oppress them.
Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou
mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto
Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of
Egypt?
And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token
unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the
people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain.
¶ And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children
of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath
sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what
shall I say unto them?

you.
And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the
children of Israel, The Lord God of your fathers, the God of
Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me
unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all
generations.
Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The
Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of
Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen
that which is done to you in Egypt:
and I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt
unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the
Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites,
unto a land flowing with milk and honey.
And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come, thou and
the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto
him, The Lord God of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now let
us go, we beseech thee, three days’ journey into the wilderness, that
we may sacrifice to the Lord our God.
And I am sure that the king of Egypt will not let you go, no, not by
a mighty hand.
And I will stretch out my hand, and smite Egypt with all my
wonders which I will do in the midst thereof: and after that he will
let you go.
And I will give this people favor in the sight of the Egyptians: and it
shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty:
but every woman shall borrow of her neighbor, and of her that
sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and
raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your
daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.

And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe
me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The Lord hath
not appeared unto thee.
And the Lord said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he
said, A rod.
And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground,
and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it
by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became
a rod in his hand:
that they may believe that the Lord God of their fathers, the God
of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath appeared
unto thee.
And the Lord said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand
into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he
took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.
And he said, Put thine hand into thy bosom again. And he put his
hand into his bosom again; and plucked it out of his bosom, and,
behold, it was turned again as his other flesh.
And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither
hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice
of the latter sign.
And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe also these two
signs, neither hearken unto thy voice, that thou shalt take of the
water of the river, and pour it upon the dry land: and the water
which thou takest out of the river shall become blood upon the dry
land.
¶ And Moses said unto the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent,
neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant;
but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.
And the Lord said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? or
who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have
not I the Lord?

thou wilt send.
And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Moses, and he said,
Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well.
And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth
thee, he will be glad in his heart.
And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I
will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you
what ye shall do.
And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be,
even he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him
instead of God.
And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt
do signs.
Moses Returns to Egypt
¶ And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father-in-law, and
said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren
which are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro
said to Moses, Go in peace.
And the Lord said unto Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt:
for all the men are dead which sought thy life.
And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass,
and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of
God in his hand.
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into
Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I
have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall
not let the people go.
And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my
son, even my firstborn:

¶ And it came to pass by the way in the inn, that the Lord met
him, and sought to kill him.
Then Zipporah took a sharp stone, and cut off the foreskin of her
son, and cast it at his feet, and said, Surely a bloody husband art
thou to me.
So he let him go: then she said, A bloody husband thou art, because
of the circumcision.
¶ And the Lord said to Aaron, Go into the wilderness to meet
Moses. And he went, and met him in the mount of God, and kissed
him.
And Moses told Aaron all the words of the Lord who had sent
him, and all the signs which he had commanded him.
And Moses and Aaron went and gathered together all the elders of
the children of Israel:
and Aaron spake all the words which the Lord had spoken unto
Moses, and did the signs in the sight of the people.
And the people believed: and when they heard that the Lord had
visited the children of Israel, and that he had looked upon their
affliction, then they bowed their heads and worshipped.
5
Moses and Aaron before Pharaoh
And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus
saith the Lord God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold
a feast unto me in the wilderness.
And Pharaoh said, Who is the Lord, that I should obey his voice to
let Israel go? I know not the Lord, neither will I let Israel go.
And they said, The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us go,
we pray thee, three days’ journey into the desert, and sacrifice unto

the Lord our God; lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the

And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses and
Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your burdens.
And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many,
and ye make them rest from their burdens.
And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the
people, and their officers, saying,
Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore:
let them go and gather straw for themselves.
And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall
lay upon them; ye shall not diminish aught thereof: for they be idle;
therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God.
Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labor
therein; and let them not regard vain words.
¶ And the taskmasters of the people went out, and their officers,
and they spake to the people, saying, Thus saith Pharaoh, I will not
give you straw.
Go ye, get you straw where ye can find it: yet not aught of your
work shall be diminished.
So the people were scattered abroad throughout all the land of
Egypt to gather stubble instead of straw.
And the taskmasters hasted them, saying, Fulfil your works, your
daily tasks, as when there was straw.
And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh’s
taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded,
Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task in making brick both
yesterday and today, as heretofore?
¶ Then the officers of the children of Israel came and cried unto
Pharaoh, saying, Wherefore dealest thou thus with thy servants?
There is no straw given unto thy servants, and they say to us, Make
brick: and, behold, thy servants are beaten; but the fault is in thine
own people.
But he said, Ye are idle, ye are idle: therefore ye say, Let us go and do
sacrifice to the Lord.

And the officers of the children of Israel did see that they were in
evil case, after it was said, Ye shall not minish aught from your
bricks of your daily task.
And they met Moses and Aaron, who stood in the way, as they
came forth from Pharaoh:
and they said unto them, The Lord look upon you, and judge;
because ye have made our savor to be abhorred in the eyes of
Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their
hand to slay us.
The Lord’s Charge to Moses and Aaron
¶ And Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Lord, wherefore
hast thou so evil entreated this people? why is it that thou hast sent
me?
For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in thy name, he hath done evil
to this people; neither hast thou delivered thy people at all.
6
Then the Lord said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do
to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a
strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
¶ And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the Lord:
and I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the
name of God Almighty; but by my name Jehovah was I not known
to them.
And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them
the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were
strangers.
And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Israel, whom
the Egyptians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my
covenant.

Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I

will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a
stretched out arm, and with great judgments:
and I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God:
and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God, which bringeth
you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.
And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did
swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give it
you for a heritage: I am the Lord.
And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened
not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Go in, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, that he let the children of
Israel go out of his land.
And Moses spake before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of
Israel have not hearkened unto me; how then shall Pharaoh hear
me, who am of uncircumcised lips?
And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, and gave them a
charge unto the children of Israel, and unto Pharaoh king of Egypt,
to bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt.
¶ These be the heads of their fathers’ houses: The sons of Reuben
the firstborn of Israel; Hanoch, and Pallu, Hezron, and Carmi:
these be the families of Reuben.
And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin,
and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman: these are
the families of Simeon.
And these are the names of the sons of Levi according to their
generations; Gershon, and Kohath, and Merari: and the years of
the life of Levi were a hundred thirty and seven years.
The sons of Gershon; Libni, and Shimi, according to their families.
And the sons of Kohath; Amram, and Izhar, and Hebron, and
Uzziel: and the years of the life of Kohath were a hundred thirty

a hundred and thirty and seven years.
And the sons of Izhar; Korah, and Nepheg, and Zichri.
And the sons of Uzziel; Mishael, and Elzaphan, and Zithri.
And Aaron took him Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab, sister of
Naashon, to wife; and she bare him Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and
Ithamar.
And the sons of Korah; Assir, and Elkanah, and Abiasaph: these are
the families of the Korhites.
And Eleazar Aaron’s son took him one of the daughters of Putiel to
wife; and she bare him Phinehas: these are the heads of the fathers
of the Levites according to their families.
¶ These are that Aaron and Moses, to whom the Lord said, Bring
out the children of Israel from the land of Egypt according to their
armies.
These are they which spake to Pharaoh king of Egypt, to bring out
the children of Israel from Egypt: these are that Moses and Aaron.
¶ And it came to pass on the day when the Lord spake unto Moses
in the land of Egypt,
that the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, I am the Lord: speak
thou unto Pharaoh king of Egypt all that I say unto thee.
And Moses said before the Lord, Behold, I am of uncircumcised
lips, and how shall Pharaoh hearken unto me?
7
And the Lord said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to
Pharaoh; and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.
Thou shalt speak all that I command thee; and Aaron thy brother
shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of
his land.

And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I stretch
forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel
from among them.
And Moses and Aaron did as the Lord commanded them, so did
they.
And Moses was fourscore years old, and Aaron fourscore and three
years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.
Aaron’s Rod
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Show a miracle for
you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it
before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.
And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the
Lord had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before
Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent.
Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the
magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their
enchantments.
For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents:
but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.
And he hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not unto
them; as the Lord had said.
The Plague of Blood

refuseth to let the people go.

Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; lo, he goeth out unto the

and the rod which was turned to a serpent shalt thou take in thine
hand.
And thou shalt say unto him, The Lord God of the Hebrews hath
sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve
me in the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not
hear.
Thus saith the Lord, In this thou shalt know that I am the Lord:
behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the
waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood.
And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink;
and the Egyptians shall loathe to drink of the water of the river.
And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod,
and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their
streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their
pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be
blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and
in vessels of stone.
¶ And Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord commanded; and he
lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the
sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters
that were in the river were turned to blood.
And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the
Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was
blood throughout all the land of Egypt.
And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and
Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them;
as the Lord had said.
And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he set his
heart to this also.
And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to
drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river.

The Plague of Frogs
¶ And seven days were fulfilled, after that the Lord had smitten
the river.
8
And the Lord spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto
him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve
me.
And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders
with frogs:
and the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up
and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy
bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and
into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs:
and the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and
upon all thy servants.
And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth
thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over
the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.
And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the
frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.
And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up
frogs upon the land of Egypt.
¶ Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Entreat the
Lord, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my
people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto
the Lord.
And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I entreat
for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the
frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river
only?

God.
And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and
from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the
river only.
And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried
unto the Lord because of the frogs which he had brought against
Pharaoh.
And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs
died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.
And they gathered them together upon heaps; and the land stank.
But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his
heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had said.
The Plague of Lice
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy
rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice
throughout all the land of Egypt.
And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and
smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast;
all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of
Egypt.
And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth
lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon
beast.
Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God:
and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto
them; as the Lord had said.
The Plague of Flies
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning,
and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say

unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may
serve me.
Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms
of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and
into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of
swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.
And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people
dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest
know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth.
And I will put a division between my people and thy people:
tomorrow shall this sign be.
And the Lord did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into
the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses, and into all the
land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of
flies.
¶ And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye,
sacrifice to your God in the land.
And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the
abomination of the Egyptians to the Lord our God: lo, shall we
sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and
will they not stone us?
We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to
the Lord our God, as he shall command us.
And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the
Lord your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far
away: entreat for me.
And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will entreat the
Lord that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his
servants, and from his people, tomorrow: but let not Pharaoh deal
deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the
Lord.
And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and entreated the Lord.
And the Lord did according to the word of Moses; and he removed
the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his
people; there remained not one.

The Plague on the Cattle
Then the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him,
Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that
they may serve me.
For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,
behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thy cattle which is in the
field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the
oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.
And the Lord shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle
of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of
Israel.
And the Lord appointed a set time, saying, Tomorrow the Lord
shall do this thing in the land.
And the Lord did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of
Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.
And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of
the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he
did not let the people go.
The Plague of Boils
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you
handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward
the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.
And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be
a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast,
throughout all the land of Egypt.

And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and
Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking
forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.
And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the
boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the
Egyptians.
And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened
not unto them; as the Lord had spoken unto Moses.
The Plague of Hail
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning,
and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord
God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and
upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know
that there is none like me in all the earth.
For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy
people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.
And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to show in
thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all
the earth.
As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let
them go?
Behold, tomorrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very
grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation
thereof even until now.
Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in
the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the
field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down
upon them, and they shall die.
He that feared the word of the Lord among the servants of
Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:
and he that regarded not the word of the Lord left his servants and
his cattle in the field.

145 Exodus 9
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward
heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man,
and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the
land of Egypt.
And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the Lord
sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and
the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous,
such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it
became a nation.
And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in
the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the
field, and brake every tree of the field.
Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was
there no hail.
¶ And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto
them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my
people are wicked.
Entreat the Lord (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty
thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no
longer.
And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I
will spread abroad my hands unto the Lord; and the thunder shall
cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know
how that the earth is the Lord’s.
But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the
Lord God.
And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the
ear, and the flax was bolled.
But the wheat and the rye were not smitten: for they were not
grown up.
And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad
his hands unto the Lord: and the thunders and hail ceased, and
the rain was not poured upon the earth.

his servants.
And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the
children of Israel go; as the Lord had spoken by Moses.
10
The Plague of Locusts
And the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have
hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might show
these my signs before him:
and that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s
son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I
have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the
Lord.
¶ And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him,
Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou
refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they
may serve me.
Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, tomorrow will I
bring the locusts into thy coast:
and they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to
see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is
escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat
every tree which groweth for you out of the field:
and they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy servants, and
the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither thy fathers, nor thy
fathers’ fathers have seen, since the day that they were upon the
earth unto this day. And he turned himself, and went out from
Pharaoh.
¶ And Pharaoh’s servants said unto him, How long shall this man
be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the Lord
their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

147 Exodus 10
And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he
said unto them, Go, serve the Lord your God: but who are they
that shall go?
And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with
our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our
herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the Lord.
And he said unto them, Let the Lord be so with you, as I will let
you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.
Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the Lord; for that ye did
desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence.
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the
land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land
of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath
left.
And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the
Lord brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that
night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.
And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all
the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there were
no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.
For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was
darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit
of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any
green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the
land of Egypt.
Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I
have sinned against the Lord your God, and against you.
Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and
entreat the Lord your God, that he may take away from me this
death only.
And he went out from Pharaoh, and entreated the Lord.
And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away
the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one
locust in all the coasts of Egypt.

The Plague of Darkness
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward
heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even
darkness which may be felt.
And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was
a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
they saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three
days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the Lord;
only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones
also go with you.
And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt
offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the Lord our God.
Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not a hoof be left
behind; for thereof must we take to serve the Lord our God; and
we know not with what we must serve the Lord, until we come
thither.
But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let
them go.
And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to
thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou
shalt die.
And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no
more.

The Death of the Firstborn Foretold

upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterward he will let you go hence:

Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of
his neighbor, and every woman of her neighbor, jewels of silver,
and jewels of gold.
And the Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians.
Moreover, the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in
the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.
¶ And Moses said, Thus saith the Lord, About midnight will I go
out into the midst of Egypt:
and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the
firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the
firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the
firstborn of beasts.
And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such
as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.
But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his
tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the
Lord doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.
And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow
down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people
that follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he went out from
Pharaoh in a great anger.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto
you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.
¶ And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and
the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the
children of Israel go out of his land.

150 Exodus 12
This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be
the first month of the year to you.
Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth
day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb,
according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for a house:
and if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his
neighbor next unto his house take it according to the number of the
souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for
the lamb.
Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye
shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
and ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month:
and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in
the evening.
And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts
and on the upper doorpost of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.
And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and
unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire;
his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.
And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that
which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.
And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your
feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the
Lord’s passover.
For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite
all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and
against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the
Lord.
And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye
are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague
shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of
Egypt.

¶ And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep
it a feast to the Lord throughout your generations: ye shall keep it
a feast by an ordinance for ever.
Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall
put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened
bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut
off from Israel.
And in the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and in the
seventh day there shall be a holy convocation to you; no manner of
work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat,
that only may be done of you.
And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this
selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt:
therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an
ordinance for ever.
In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye
shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the
month at even.
Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for
whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut
off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or
born in the land.
Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat
unleavened bread.
¶ Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them,
Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill
the passover.
And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in
the basin, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood
that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out at the door of his
house until the morning.
For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when
he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the
Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to
come in unto your houses to smite you.

Lord will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall
keep this service.
And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you,
What mean ye by this service?
That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord’s passover, who
passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he
smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people
bowed the head and worshipped.
¶ And the children of Israel went away, and did as the Lord had
commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
The Death of the Firstborn
¶ And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the
firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that
sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the
dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all
the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt: for there was not a
house where there was not one dead.
And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and
get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of
Israel; and go, serve the Lord, as ye have said.
Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone;
and bless me also.
¶ And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might
send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead
men.
And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their
kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their
shoulders.

they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold,
and raiment:
and the Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so
that they lent unto them such things as they required: and they
spoiled the Egyptians.
The Israelites Leave Egypt
¶ And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth,
about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children.
And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and
herds, even very much cattle.
And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought
forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were
thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared
for themselves any victuals.
¶ Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt,
was four hundred and thirty years.
And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years,
even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord
went out from the land of Egypt.
It is a night to be much observed unto the Lord for bringing them
out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the Lord to be
observed of all the children of Israel in their generations.
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance
of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:
but every man’s servant that is bought for money, when thou hast
circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.
A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat thereof.
In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth aught of
the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone
thereof.
All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.

him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in
the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.
One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger
that sojourneth among you.
¶ Thus did all the children of Israel; as the Lord commanded
Moses and Aaron, so did they.
And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the Lord did bring the
children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.
13
The Consecration of the Firstborn
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb
among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine.
¶ And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye
came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength
of hand the Lord brought you out from this place: there shall no
leavened bread be eaten.
This day came ye out in the month Abib.
And it shall be when the Lord shall bring thee into the land of the
Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites,
and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a
land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep this service
in this month.
Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day
shall be a feast to the Lord.
Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no
leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen
with thee in all thy quarters.

And thou shalt show thy son in that day, saying, This is done because
of that which the Lord did unto me when I came forth out of
Egypt.
And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a
memorial between thine eyes, that the Lord’s law may be in thy
mouth: for with a strong hand hath the Lord brought thee out of
Egypt.
Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to
year.
¶ And it shall be when the Lord shall bring thee into the land of
the Canaanites, as he sware unto thee and to thy fathers, and shall
give it thee,
that thou shalt set apart unto the Lord all that openeth the matrix,
and every firstling that cometh of a beast which thou hast; the male
shall be the Lord’s.
And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb; and if
thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break his neck: and all the
firstborn of man among thy children shalt thou redeem.
And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying,
What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand the
Lord brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:
and it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the
Lord slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn
of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the Lord
all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my
children I redeem.
And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets
between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the Lord brought us
forth out of Egypt.
The Pillar of Cloud and the Pillar of Fire
¶ And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that
God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines,

although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people
repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt:
but God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of
the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the
land of Egypt.
And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had straitly
sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you; and
ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you.
And they took their journey from Succoth, and encamped in
Etham, in the edge of the wilderness.
And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to
lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them
light; to go by day and night.
He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of
fire by night, from before the people.
14
Crossing the Red Sea
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before
Pi-hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon:
before it shall ye encamp by the sea.
For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in
the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.
And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, that he shall follow after them;
and I will be honored upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the
Egyptians may know that I am the Lord. And they did so.
¶ And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and the
heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people,
and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go
from serving us?
And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:

and he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of

And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and
he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel
went out with a high hand.
But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of
Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them
encamping by the sea, beside Pi-hahiroth, before Baal-zephon.
¶ And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up
their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and
they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the
Lord.
And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt,
hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast
thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?
Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us
alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us
to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.
And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the
salvation of the Lord, which he will show to you today: for the
Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no
more for ever.
The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me?
speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:
but lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea,
and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground
through the midst of the sea.
And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they
shall follow them: and I will get me honor upon Pharaoh, and
upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.
And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I have
gotten me honor upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his
horsemen.

158 Exodus 14
¶ And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel,
removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went
from before their face, and stood behind them:
and it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of
Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by
night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.
¶ And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord
caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and
made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the
dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right
hand, and on their left.
And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of
the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.
And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked
unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the
cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,
and took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so
that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the
Lord fighteth for them against the Egyptians.
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the
sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon
their chariots, and upon their horsemen.
And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea
returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the
Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in
the midst of the sea.
And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the
horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after
them; there remained not so much as one of them.
But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the
sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and
on their left.
¶ Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the
Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the seashore.

The Song of Moses
Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the
Lord, and spake, saying,
I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously:
the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
The Lord is my strength and song,
and he is become my salvation:
he is my God, and I will prepare him a habitation;
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
The Lord is a man of war:
the Lord is his name.
Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea:
his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
The depths have covered them:
they sank into the bottom as a stone.
Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power:
thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.
And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown
them that rose up against thee:
thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered
together,
the floods stood upright as a heap,
and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.
The enemy said,
I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil;
my lust shall be satisfied upon them;
I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.

Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods?
Who is like thee, glorious in holiness,
fearful in praises, doing wonders?
Thou stretchedst out thy right hand,
the earth swallowed them.
Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast
redeemed:
thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.
The people shall hear, and be afraid:
sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.
Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed;
the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them;
all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.
Fear and dread shall fall upon them;
by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone;
till thy people pass over, O Lord,
till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.
Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine
inheritance,
in the place, O Lord, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in;
in the sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established.
The Lord shall reign for ever and ever.
¶ For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his
horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought again the waters of
the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in
the midst of the sea.
And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in
her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and
with dances.
And Miriam answered them,
Sing ye to the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously:
the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

The Bitter Water at Marah
¶ So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into
the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness,
and found no water.
And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters
of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called
Marah [bitterness].
And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we
drink?
And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord showed him a tree,
which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made
sweet.
¶ There he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he
proved them,
and said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord
thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give
ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none
of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the
Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.
¶ And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and
threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the
waters.
16
God Gives Manna
And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of
the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is
between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month
after their departing out of the land of Egypt.
And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured
against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:

162 Exodus 16
and the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had
died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by
the fleshpots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have
brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly
with hunger.
¶ Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from
heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain
rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in
my law, or no.
And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare
that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they
gather daily.
And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even,
then ye shall know that the Lord hath brought you out from the
land of Egypt:
and in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the Lord; for
that he heareth your murmurings against the Lord: and what are
we, that ye murmur against us?
And Moses said, This shall be, when the Lord shall give you in the
evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that
the Lord heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against
him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but
against the Lord.
¶ And Moses spake unto Aaron, Say unto all the congregation of
the children of Israel, Come near before the Lord: for he hath
heard your murmurings.
And it came to pass, as Aaron spake unto the whole congregation of
the children of Israel, that they looked toward the wilderness, and,
behold, the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud.
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto
them, saying, At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall
be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I am the Lord your
God.

163 Exodus 16
¶ And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered
the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host.
And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of
the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar
frost on the ground.
And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It
is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them,
This is the bread which the Lord hath given you to eat.
This is the thing which the Lord hath commanded, Gather of it
every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according
to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which
are in his tents.
And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some
less.
And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much
had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they
gathered every man according to his eating.
And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.
Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of
them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank:
and Moses was wroth with them.
And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his
eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.
¶ And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as
much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the
congregation came and told Moses.
And he said unto them, This is that which the Lord hath said,
Tomorrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the Lord: bake that
which ye will bake today, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that
which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not
stink, neither was there any worm therein.
And Moses said, Eat that today; for today is a sabbath unto the
Lord: today ye shall not find it in the field.

Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the
sabbath, in it there shall be none.
And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the
seventh day for to gather, and they found none.
And the Lord said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my
commandments and my laws?
See, for that the Lord hath given you the sabbath, therefore he
giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days: abide ye every
man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.
So the people rested on the seventh day.
¶ And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it
was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers
made with honey.
And Moses said, This is the thing which the Lord commandeth,
Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see
the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I
brought you forth from the land of Egypt.
And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of
manna therein, and lay it up before the Lord, to be kept for your
generations.
As the Lord commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the
Testimony, to be kept.
And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they
came to a land inhabited: they did eat manna, until they came unto
the borders of the land of Canaan.
Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.
17
Water from the Rock
And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from
the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the
commandment of the Lord, and pitched in Rephidim: and there
was no water for the people to drink.

Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us
water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye
with me? wherefore do ye tempt the Lord?
And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured
against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us
up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with
thirst?
And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, What shall I do unto this
people? they be almost ready to stone me.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take
with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou
smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.
Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and
thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that
the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of
Israel.
And he called the name of the place Massah [temptation], and
Meribah [chiding or strife], because of the chiding of the children of
Israel, and because they tempted the Lord, saying, Is the Lord
among us, or not?
War with Amalek
¶ Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.
And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight
with Amalek: tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the
rod of God in mine hand.
So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek:
and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel
prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
But Moses’ hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it
under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his
hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side;
and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.

the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.
And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi
[the Lord my banner]:
for he said, Because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have
war with Amalek from generation to generation.
18
Jethro Visits Moses
When Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses’ father-in-law, heard of
all that God had done for Moses, and for Israel his people, and that
the Lord had brought Israel out of Egypt;
then Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, took Zipporah, Moses’ wife, after
he had sent her back,
and her two sons; of which the name of the one was Gershom [a
stranger there]; for he said, I have been an alien in a strange land:
and the name of the other was Eliezer [my God is an help]; for the
God of my father, said he, was mine help, and delivered me from the
sword of Pharaoh:
and Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, came with his sons and his wife
unto Moses into the wilderness, where he encamped at the mount
of God:
and he said unto Moses, I thy father-in-law Jethro am come unto
thee, and thy wife, and her two sons with her.
And Moses went out to meet his father-in-law, and did obeisance,
and kissed him; and they asked each other of their welfare; and they
came into the tent.
And Moses told his father-in-law all that the Lord had done unto
Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel’s sake, and all the travail

that had come upon them by the way, and how the Lord delivered
them.
And Jethro rejoiced for all the goodness which the Lord had done
to Israel, whom he had delivered out of the hand of the Egyptians.
¶ And Jethro said, Blessed be the Lord, who hath delivered you out
of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of Pharaoh, who
hath delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians.
Now I know that the Lord is greater than all gods: for in the thing
wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.
And Jethro, Moses’ father-in-law, took a burnt offering and
sacrifices for God: and Aaron came, and all the elders of Israel, to
eat bread with Moses’ father-in-law before God.
The Appointment of Judges
¶ And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge the
people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto the
evening.
And when Moses’ father-in-law saw all that he did to the people, he
said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? Why sittest
thou thyself alone, and all the people stand by thee from morning
unto even?
And Moses said unto his father-in-law, Because the people come
unto me to inquire of God:
when they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between
one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of God, and
his laws.
And Moses’ father-in-law said unto him, The thing that thou doest
is not good.
Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with
thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to
perform it thyself alone.
Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall
be with thee: Be thou for the people to Godward, that thou mayest
bring the causes unto God:

must do.
Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as
fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over
them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of
fifties, and rulers of tens:
and let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that
every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small
matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they
shall bear the burden with thee.
If thou shalt do this thing, and God command thee so, then thou
shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their
place in peace.
¶ So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father-in-law, and did all
that he had said.
And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads
over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of
fifties, and rulers of tens.
And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they
brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged
themselves.
And Moses let his father-in-law depart; and he went his way into
his own land.
19
Israel at Mount Sinai
In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out
of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of
Sinai.
For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the
desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel
camped before the mount.

of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob,
and tell the children of Israel;
Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on
eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.
Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my
covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all
people: for all the earth is mine:
and ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.
These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of
Israel.
¶ And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid
before their faces all these words which the Lord commanded
him.
And all the people answered together, and said, All that the Lord
hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the
people unto the Lord.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Lo, I come unto thee in a thick
cloud, that the people may hear when I speak with thee, and
believe thee for ever.
¶ And Moses told the words of the people unto the Lord.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify
them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their clothes,
and be ready against the third day: for the third day the Lord will
come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.
And thou shalt set bounds unto the people round about, saying,
Take heed to yourselves, that ye go not up into the mount, or touch
the border of it: whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put
to death:
there shall not a hand touch it, but he shall surely be stoned, or
shot through; whether it be beast or man, it shall not live: when the
trumpet soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.
And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and
sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes.

were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount,
and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people
that was in the camp trembled.
And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with
God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the Lord
descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the
smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed
louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.
And the Lord came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the
mount: and the Lord called Moses up to the top of the mount; and
Moses went up.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Go down, charge the people, lest
they break through unto the Lord to gaze, and many of them
perish.
And let the priests also, which come near to the Lord, sanctify
themselves, lest the Lord break forth upon them.
And Moses said unto the Lord, The people cannot come up to
mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, Set bounds about the
mount, and sanctify it.
And the Lord said unto him, Away, get thee down, and thou shalt
come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the
people break through to come up unto the Lord, lest he break
forth upon them.
So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them.

¶ Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
¶ Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or 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:
thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the
Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers
upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that
hate me;
and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep
my commandments.
¶ Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for
the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
¶ Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work:
but the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou
shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy
manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger
that is within thy gates:
for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all
that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord
blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
¶ Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long
upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
¶ Thou shalt not kill.
¶ Thou shalt not commit adultery.
¶ Thou shalt not steal.
¶ Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
¶ Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet
thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor
his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.

The People’s Fear
¶ And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and
the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when
the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.
And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear:
but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove
you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.
¶ And the people stood afar off, and Moses drew near unto the
thick darkness where God was.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Thus thou shalt say unto the
children of Israel, Ye have seen that I have talked with you from
heaven.
Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make
unto you gods of gold.
An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me, and shalt sacrifice
thereon thy burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep, and
thine oxen: in all places where I record my name I will come unto
thee, and I will bless thee.
And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it
of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast
polluted it.
Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy
nakedness be not discovered thereon.
21
The Treatment of Servants
Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them.
If thou buy a Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the
seventh he shall go out free for nothing.
If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were
married, then his wife shall go out with him.

shall go out by himself.
And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and
my children; I will not go out free:
then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring
him to the door, or unto the doorpost; and his master shall bore his
ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him for ever.
¶ And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not
go out as the menservants do.
If she please not her master, who hath betrothed her to himself,
then shall he let her be redeemed: to sell her unto a strange nation
he shall have no power, seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.
And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her
after the manner of daughters.
If he take him another wife, her food, her raiment, and her duty of
marriage, shall he not diminish.
And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go out free
without money.
Laws concerning Acts of Violence
¶ He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.
And if a man lie not in wait, but God deliver him into his hand;
then I will appoint thee a place whither he shall flee.
But if a man come presumptuously upon his neighbor, to slay him
with guile; thou shalt take him from mine altar, that he may die.
¶ And he that smiteth his father, or his mother, shall be surely put
to death.
¶ And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in
his hand, he shall surely be put to death.
¶ And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put
to death.
¶ And if men strive together, and one smite another with a stone,
or with his fist, and he die not, but keepeth his bed:

smote him be quit: only he shall pay for the loss of his time, and
shall cause him to be thoroughly healed.
¶ And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die
under his hand; he shall be surely punished.
Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be
punished: for he is his money.
¶ If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit
depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely
punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him;
and he shall pay as the judges determine.
And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,
eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
Laws concerning Responsibility of Owners
¶ And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid,
that it perish; he shall let him go free for his eye’s sake.
And if he smite out his manservant’s tooth, or his maidservant’s
tooth; he shall let him go free for his tooth’s sake.
¶ If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall
be surely stoned, and his flesh shall not be eaten; but the owner of
the ox shall be quit.
But if the ox were wont to push with his horn in time past, and it
hath been testified to his owner, and he hath not kept him in, but
that he hath killed a man or a woman; the ox shall be stoned, and
his owner also shall be put to death.
If there be laid on him a sum of money, then he shall give for the
ransom of his life whatsoever is laid upon him.
Whether he have gored a son, or have gored a daughter, according
to this judgment shall it be done unto him.
If the ox shall push a manservant or a maidservant; he shall give
unto their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be
stoned.

cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein;
the owner of the pit shall make it good, and give money unto the
owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his.
¶ And if one man’s ox hurt another’s that he die; then they shall
sell the live ox, and divide the money of it; and the dead ox also
they shall divide.
Or if it be known that the ox hath used to push in time past, and his
owner hath not kept him in; he shall surely pay ox for ox; and the
dead shall be his own.

Laws concerning Restitution
If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it; he shall
restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep.
¶ If a thief be found breaking up, and be smitten that he die, there
shall no blood be shed for him.
If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be blood shed for him; for he
should make full restitution: if he have nothing, then he shall be
sold for his theft.
If the theft be certainly found in his hand alive, whether it be ox, or
ass, or sheep; he shall restore double.
¶ If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put
in his beast, and shall 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.

the standing corn, or the field, be consumed therewith; he that
kindled the fire shall surely make restitution.
¶ 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, let
him pay double.

for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another
challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before
the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay
double unto his neighbor.
¶ 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:
then shall an oath of the Lord be between them both, that he hath
not put his hand unto his neighbor’s goods; and the owner of it
shall accept thereof, and he shall not make it good.
And if it be stolen from him, he shall make restitution unto the
owner thereof.
If it be torn in pieces, then let him bring it for witness, and he shall
not make good that which was torn.
¶ And if a man borrow aught of his neighbor, and it be hurt, or die,

Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.
If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will
surely hear their cry;
and my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and
your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.
¶ If thou lend money to any of my people that is poor by thee, thou
shalt not be to him as a usurer, neither shalt thou lay upon him
usury.
If thou at all take thy neighbor’s raiment to pledge, thou shalt
deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:
for that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein
shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me,
that I will hear; for I am gracious.
¶ Thou shalt not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of thy people.
¶ Thou shalt not delay to offer the first of thy ripe fruits, and of thy
liquors.

that is torn of beasts in the fields; ye shall cast it to the dogs.
23
Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the
wicked to be an unrighteous witness.
Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou
speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:
neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.
¶ If thou meet thine enemy’s ox or his ass going astray, thou shalt
surely bring it back to him again.
If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his burden,
and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt surely help with him.
¶ Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.

slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.
And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and
perverteth the words of the righteous.
¶ Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a
stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.
¶ And six years thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the
fruits thereof:
but the seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the poor
of thy people may eat: and what they leave the beasts of the field
shall eat. In like manner thou shalt deal with thy vineyard, and
with thy oliveyard.
¶ Six days thou shalt do thy work, and on the seventh day thou
shalt rest: that thine ox and thine ass may rest, and the son of thy
handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed.
And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make
no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of
thy mouth.
The Three Appointed Feasts
¶ Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.
Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat
unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time
appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt:
and none shall appear before me empty:)
and the feast of harvest, the firstfruits of thy labors, which thou
hast sown in the field: and the feast of ingathering, which is in the
end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labors out of the
field.
Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord
God.
¶ Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leavened
bread; neither shall the fat of my sacrifice remain until the
morning.

The Lord’s Angel Sent to Lead Israel
¶ Behold, I send an angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and
to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.
Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will
not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.
¶ But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak;
then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto
thine adversaries.
¶ For mine angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the
Amorites, and the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites,
the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I will cut them off.
Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do
after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite
break down their images.
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread,
and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land:
the number of thy days I will fulfil.
I will send my fear before thee, and will destroy all the people to
whom thou shalt come; and I will make all thine enemies turn
their backs unto thee.
And I will send hornets before thee, which shall drive out the
Hivite, the Canaanite, and the Hittite, from before thee.
I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land
become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee.
By little and little I will drive them out from before thee, until thou
be increased, and inherit the land.
And I will set thy bounds from the Red sea even unto the sea of the
Philistines, and from the desert unto the river: for I will deliver the

Thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor with their gods.
They shall not dwell in thy land, lest they make thee sin against
me: for if thou serve their gods, it will surely be a snare unto thee.

Moses and the Elders on Mount Sinai
And he said unto Moses, Come up unto the Lord, thou, and
Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel; and
worship ye afar off.
And Moses alone shall come near the Lord: but they shall not
come nigh; neither shall the people go up with him.
¶ And Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord,
and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice,
and said, All the words which the Lord hath said will we do.
And Moses wrote all the words of the Lord, and rose up early in
the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve
pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.
And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered
burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto the
Lord.
And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basins; and half of
the blood he sprinkled on the altar.
And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of
the people: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do,
and be obedient.
And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said,
Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord hath made with
you concerning all these words.
¶ Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy
of the elders of Israel;

were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of
heaven in his clearness.
And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand:
also they saw God, and did eat and drink.
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount,
and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and
commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach
them.
And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua; and Moses went up
into the mount of God.
And he said unto the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come
again unto you: and, behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any
man have any matters to do, let him come unto them.
¶ And Moses went up into the mount, and a cloud covered the
mount.
And the glory of the Lord abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud
covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of
the midst of the cloud.
And the sight of the glory of the Lord was like devouring fire on
the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.
And Moses went into the midst of the cloud, and gat him up into
the mount: and Moses was in the mount forty days and forty
nights.

Israel to Bring an Offering
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of
every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my
offering.
And this is the offering which ye shall take of them; gold, and
silver, and brass,

onyx stones, and stones to be set in the ephod, and in the
breastplate.
And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.
According to all that I show thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle,
and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye
make it.

And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt
thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round
about.
And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four
corners thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two

And the cherubim shall stretch forth their wings on high, covering
the mercy seat with their wings, and their faces shall look one to
another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubim be.
And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the
ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.
And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee
from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which
are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee
in commandment unto the children of Israel.
The Table for the Showbread
¶ Thou shalt also make a table of shittim wood: two cubits shall be
the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and
a half the height thereof.
And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, and make thereto a crown
of gold round about.
And thou shalt make unto it a border of a handbreadth round
about, and thou shalt make a golden crown to the border thereof
round about.
And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold, and put the rings in
the four corners that are on the four feet thereof.

And six branches shall come out of the sides of it; three branches of
the candlestick out of the one side, and three branches of the
candlestick out of the other side:
three bowls made like unto almonds, with a knop and a flower in
one branch; and three bowls made like almonds in the other
branch, with a knop and a flower: so in the six branches that come
out of the candlestick.
And in the candlestick shall be four bowls made like unto almonds,
with their knops and their flowers.
And there shall be a knop under two branches of the same, and a
knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two
branches of the same, according to the six branches that proceed
out of the candlestick.
Their knops and their branches shall be of the same: all of it shall be

pillars three, and their sockets three.
And on the other side shall be hangings fifteen cubits: their pillars
three, and their sockets three.
And for the gate of the court shall be a hanging of twenty cubits, of
blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, wrought with
needlework: and their pillars shall be four, and their sockets four.
All the pillars round about the court shall be filleted with silver;
their hooks shall be of silver, and their sockets of brass.

The Tending of the Lamp
¶ And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring
thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to burn
always.
In the tabernacle of the congregation without the veil, which is
before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from
evening to morning before the Lord: it shall be a statute for ever
unto their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel.

The Garments for the Priests
And take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him,
from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me in
the priest’s office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and
Ithamar, Aaron’s sons.
And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, for
glory and for beauty.
And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise-hearted, whom I have
filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s
garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the
priest’s office.
And these are the garments which they shall make; a breastplate,
and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mitre, and a
girdle: and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother,
and his sons, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.

¶ And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and

And they shall make the ephod of gold, of blue, and of purple, of
scarlet, and fine twined linen, with cunning work.
It shall have the two shoulderpieces thereof joined at the two edges
thereof; and so it shall be joined together.
And the curious girdle of the ephod, which is upon it, shall be of
the same, according to the work thereof; even of gold, of blue, and
purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
And thou shalt take two onyx stones, and grave on them the names
of the children of Israel:
six of their names on one stone, and the other six names of the rest
on the other stone, according to their birth.
With the work of an engraver in stone, like the engravings of a
signet, shalt thou engrave the two stones with the names of the
children of Israel: thou shalt make them to be set in ouches of gold.
And thou shalt put the two stones upon the shoulders of the ephod
for stones of memorial unto the children of Israel: and Aaron shall
bear their names before the Lord upon his two shoulders for a
memorial.
And thou shalt make ouches of gold;
and two chains of pure gold at the ends; of wreathed work shalt
thou make them, and fasten the wreathed chains to the ouches.
¶ And thou shalt make the breastplate of judgment with cunning
work; after the work of the ephod thou shalt make it; of gold, of
blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, and of fine twined linen, shalt
thou make it.
Foursquare it shall be being doubled; a span shall be the length
thereof, and a span shall be the breadth thereof.
And thou shalt set in it settings of stones, even four rows of stones:
the first row shall be a sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be
the first row.
And the second row shall be an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.
And the third row a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.

twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a signet;
every one with his name shall they be according to the twelve
tribes.
And thou shalt make upon the breastplate chains at the ends of
wreathed work of pure gold.
And thou shalt make upon the breastplate two rings of gold, and
shalt put the two rings on the two ends of the breastplate.
And thou shalt put the two wreathed chains of gold in the two rings
which are on the ends of the breastplate.
And the other two ends of the two wreathed chains thou shalt fasten
in the two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod
before it.
And thou shalt make two rings of gold, and thou shalt put them
upon the two ends of the breastplate in the border thereof, which is
in the side of the ephod inward.
And two other rings of gold thou shalt make, and shalt put them on
the two sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart thereof,
over against the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of
the ephod.
And they shall bind the breastplate by the rings thereof unto the
rings of the ephod with a lace of blue, that it may be above the
curious girdle of the ephod, and that the breastplate be not loosed
from the ephod.
And Aaron shall bear the names of the children of Israel in the
breastplate of judgment upon his heart, when he goeth in unto the
holy place, for a memorial before the Lord continually.
And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the
Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron’s heart, when he goeth in
before the Lord: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the
children of Israel upon his heart before the Lord continually.
¶ And thou shalt make the robe of the ephod all of blue.

were the hole of an habergeon, that it be not rent.
And beneath upon the hem of it thou shalt make pomegranates of
blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof;
and bells of gold between them round about:
a golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate,
upon the hem of the robe round about.
And it shall be upon Aaron to minister: and his sound shall be
heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before the Lord, and
when he cometh out, that he die not.
¶ And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like
the engravings of a signet, Holiness to the Lord.
And thou shalt put it on a blue lace, that it may be upon the mitre;
upon the forefront of the mitre it shall be.
And it shall be upon Aaron’s forehead, that Aaron may bear the
iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall
hallow in all their holy gifts; and it shall be always upon his
forehead, that they may be accepted before the Lord.
¶ And thou shalt embroider the coat of fine linen, and thou shalt
make the mitre of fine linen, and thou shalt make the girdle of
needlework.
¶ And for Aaron’s sons thou shalt make coats, and thou shalt make
for them girdles, and bonnets shalt thou make for them, for glory
and for beauty.
And thou shalt put them upon Aaron thy brother, and his sons
with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and
sanctify them, that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness;
from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach:
and they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his sons, when they come
in unto the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they come near
unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not
iniquity, and die: it shall be a statute for ever unto him and his seed
after him.

The Consecration of Aaron and His Sons
And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow them,
to minister unto me in the priest’s office: Take one young bullock,
and two rams without blemish,
and unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered with oil,
and wafers unleavened anointed with oil: of wheaten flour shalt
thou make them.
And thou shalt put them into one basket, and bring them in the
basket, with the bullock and the two rams.
And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them with water.
And thou shalt take the garments, and put upon Aaron the coat,
and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate, and
gird him with the curious girdle of the ephod:
and thou shalt put the mitre upon his head, and put the holy crown
upon the mitre.
Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head,
and anoint him.
And thou shalt bring his sons, and put coats upon them.
And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and put
the bonnets on them: and the priest’s office shall be theirs for a
perpetual statute: and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons.
¶ And thou shalt cause a bullock to be brought before the
tabernacle of the congregation; and Aaron and his sons shall put
their hands upon the head of the bullock.
And thou shalt kill the bullock before the Lord, by the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation.
And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put it upon the
horns of the altar with thy finger, and pour all the blood beside the
bottom of the altar.

And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the inwards, and the
caul that is above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is
upon them, and burn them upon the altar.
But the flesh of the bullock, and his skin, and his dung, shalt thou
burn with fire without the camp: it is a sin offering.
¶ Thou shalt also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put
their hands upon the head of the ram.
And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his blood, and
sprinkle it round about upon the altar.
And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces, and wash the inwards of him,
and his legs, and put them unto his pieces, and unto his head.
And thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is a burnt
offering unto the Lord: it is a sweet savor, an offering made by fire
unto the Lord.
¶ And thou shalt take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons shall
put their hands upon the head of the ram.
Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put it upon
the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right ear of
his sons, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the
great toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood upon the altar
round about.
And thou shalt take of the blood that is upon the altar, and of the
anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron, and upon his garments,
and upon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him:
and he shall be hallowed, and his garments, and his sons, and his
sons’ garments with him.
¶ Also thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the rump, and the fat
that covereth the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two
kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right shoulder; for it
is a ram of consecration:
and one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer
out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is before the Lord:
and thou shalt put all in the hands of Aaron, and in the hands of his
sons; and shalt wave them for a wave offering before the Lord.

¶ And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of Aaron’s consecration,
and wave it for a wave offering before the Lord: and it shall be thy
part.
And thou shalt sanctify the breast of the wave offering, and the
shoulder of the heave offering, which is waved, and which is
heaved up, of the ram of the consecration, even of that which is for
Aaron, and of that which is for his sons:
and it shall be Aaron’s and his sons’ by a statute for ever from the
children of Israel; for it is a heave offering: and it shall be a heave
offering from the children of Israel of the sacrifice of their peace
offerings, even their heave offering unto the Lord.
¶ And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons’ after him, to be
anointed therein, and to be consecrated in them.
And that son that is priest in his stead shall put them on seven days,
when he cometh into the tabernacle of the congregation to
minister in the holy place.
¶ And thou shalt take the ram of the consecration, and seethe his
flesh in the holy place.
And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the bread
that is in the basket, by the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation.
And they shall eat those things wherewith the atonement was
made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but a stranger shall not
eat thereof, because they are holy.
And if aught of the flesh of the consecrations, or of the bread,
remain unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder
with fire: it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.
¶ And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to
all things which I have commanded thee: seven days shalt thou
consecrate them.

Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for the altar, and sanctify
it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever toucheth the altar
shall be holy.
The Daily Offerings
¶ Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the altar; two lambs
of the first year day by day continually.
The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb
thou shalt offer at even:
and with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled with the
fourth part of a hin of beaten oil; and the fourth part of a hin of
wine for a drink offering.
And the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, and shalt do thereto
according to the meat offering of the morning, and according to the
drink offering thereof, for a sweet savor, an offering made by fire
unto the Lord.
This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations
at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the Lord,
where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee.
And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and the tabernacle
shall be sanctified by my glory.
And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the
altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me
in the priest’s office.
And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their
God.
And they shall know that I am the Lord their God, that brought
them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them:
I am the Lord their God.

The Altar of Incense
And thou shalt make an altar to burn incense upon: of shittim
wood shalt thou make it.
A cubit shall be the length thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof;
foursquare shall it be: and two cubits shall be the height thereof: the
horns thereof shall be of the same.
And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the
sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt
make unto it a crown of gold round about.
And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown of it,
by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides of it shalt thou make
it; and they shall be for places for the staves to bear it withal.
And thou shalt make the staves of shittim wood, and overlay them
with gold.
And thou shalt put it before the veil that is by the ark of the
testimony, before the mercy seat that is over the testimony, where I
will meet with thee.
And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning: when
he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn incense upon it.
And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense
upon it, a perpetual incense before the Lord throughout your
generations.
Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor
meat offering; neither shall ye pour drink offering thereon.
And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a
year with the blood of the sin offering of atonements; once in the
year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your
generations: it is most holy unto the Lord.

When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after their
number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto
the Lord, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague
among them, when thou numberest them.
This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are
numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel
is twenty gerahs:) a half shekel shall be the offering of the Lord.
Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from
twenty years old and above, shall give an offering unto the Lord.
The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less, than
half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the Lord, to make
an atonement for your souls.
And thou shalt take the atonement money of the children of Israel,
and shalt appoint it for the service of the tabernacle of the
congregation; that it may be a memorial unto the children of Israel
before the Lord, to make an atonement for your souls.
The Laver
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to
wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the
congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein.
For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet
thereat:
when they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall
wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the
altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the Lord:
so they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and
it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed
throughout their generations.

hundred and fifty shekels, and of sweet calamus two hundred and
fifty shekels,
and of cassia five hundred shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary,
and of oil olive a hin:
and thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment
compound after the art of the apothecary: it shall be a holy
anointing oil.
And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation
therewith, and the ark of the testimony,
and the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and his vessels,
and the altar of incense,
and the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and the laver and
his foot.
And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy:
whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy.
And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them,
that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office.
And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This shall
be a holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations.
Upon man’s flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make any
other like it, after the composition of it: it is holy, and it shall be
holy unto you.
Whosoever compoundeth any like it, or whosoever putteth any of
it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off from his people.
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices,
stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; these sweet spices with pure
frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:
and thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the
apothecary, tempered together, pure and holy:
and thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it before the
testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will meet
with thee: it shall be unto you most holy.

The Call of Bezaleel and Aholiab
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur,
of the tribe of Judah:
and I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in
understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of
workmanship,
to devise cunning works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in
brass,
and in cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of timber, to
work in all manner of workmanship.
And I, behold, I have given with him Aholiab, the son of
Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan: and in the hearts of all that are
wise-hearted I have put wisdom, that they may make all that I have
commanded thee;
the tabernacle of the congregation, and the ark of the testimony,
and the mercy seat that is thereupon, and all the furniture of the
tabernacle,
and the table and his furniture, and the pure candlestick with all
his furniture, and the altar of incense,
and the altar of burnt offering with all his furniture, and the laver
and his foot,
and the clothes of service, and the holy garments for Aaron the
priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s

The Sabbath as a Sign
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my
sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you
throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the
Lord that doth sanctify you.
Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you. Every
one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever
doeth any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his
people.
Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest,
holy to the Lord: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day,
he shall surely be put to death.
Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe
the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant.
It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six
days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he
rested, and was refreshed.
The Golden Calf
¶ And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of
communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony,
tables of stone, written with the finger of God.
32
And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of
the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron,
and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for

as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of

And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which
are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters,
and bring them unto me.
And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their
ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving
tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy
gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made
proclamation, and said, Tomorrow is a feast to the Lord.
And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings,
and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to
drink, and rose up to play.
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy
people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have
corrupted themselves:
they have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded
them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it,
and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel,
which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
And the Lord said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and,
behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against
them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a
great nation.
¶ And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, Lord, why
doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast
brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a
mighty hand?
Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he
bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume
them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and
repent of this evil against thy people.

swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply
your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken
of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.
And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his
people.
¶ And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two
tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on
both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they
written.
And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the
writing of God, graven upon the tables.
And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he
said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.
And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery,
neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome; but the
noise of them that sing do I hear.
And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he
saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and he
cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.
And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire,
and ground it to powder, and strewed it upon the water, and made
the children of Israel drink of it.
¶ And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that
thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?
And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou
knowest the people, that they are set on mischief.
For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us: for
as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of
Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it
off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came
out this calf.
¶ And when Moses saw that the people were naked, (for Aaron had
made them naked unto their shame among their enemies,)

And he said unto them, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Put
every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate
throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every
man his companion, and every man his neighbor.
And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and
there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.
For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves today to the Lord, even
every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that he may bestow
upon you a blessing this day.
¶ And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the
people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the
Lord; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.
And Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Oh, this people have
sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.
Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin —; and if not, blot me, I pray
thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against
me, him will I blot out of my book.
Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have
spoken unto thee: behold, mine angel shall go before thee:
nevertheless, in the day when I visit, I will visit their sin upon
them.
¶ And the Lord plagued the people, because they made the calf,
which Aaron made.

unto the land which I sware unto Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob,
saying, Unto thy seed will I give it:
and I will send an angel before thee; and I will drive out the
Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the
Hivite, and the Jebusite:
unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the
midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee
in the way.
¶ And when the people heard these evil tidings, they mourned: and
no man did put on him his ornaments.
For the Lord had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of Israel,
Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of thee in
a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments
from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.
And the children of Israel stripped themselves of their ornaments
by the mount Horeb.
¶ And Moses took the tabernacle, and pitched it without the camp,
afar off from the camp, and called it the Tabernacle of the
congregation. And it came to pass, that every one which sought the
Lord went out unto the tabernacle of the congregation, which was
without the camp.
And it came to pass, when Moses went out unto the tabernacle, that
all the people rose up, and stood every man at his tent door, and
looked after Moses, until he was gone into the tabernacle.
And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the
cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle,
and the Lord talked with Moses.
And all the people saw the cloudy pillar stand at the tabernacle
door: and all the people rose up and worshipped, every man in his
tent door.
And the Lord spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh
unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp; but his servant
Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the
tabernacle.

206 Exodus 33
¶ And Moses said unto the Lord, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring
up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt
send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou
hast also found grace in my sight.
Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, show
me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy
sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.
And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.
And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not
up hence.
For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have
found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? So
shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are
upon the face of the earth.
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou
hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee
by name.
And he said, I beseech thee, show me thy glory.
And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I
will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be
gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom
I will show mercy.
And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see
me, and live.
And the Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt
stand upon a rock:
and it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put
thee in a cleft of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I
pass by:
and I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts;
but my face shall not be seen.

The Second Tables of Stone
And the Lord said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like
unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were
in the first tables, which thou brakest.
And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto
mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the
mount.
And no man shall come up with thee, neither let any man be seen
throughout all the mount; neither let the flocks nor herds feed
before that mount.
And he hewed two tables of stone like unto the first; and Moses
rose up early in the morning, and went up unto mount Sinai, as the
Lord had commanded him, and took in his hand the two tables of
stone.
And the Lord descended in the cloud, and stood with him there,
and proclaimed the name of the Lord.
And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord,
The Lord God, merciful and gracious, long-suffering, and
abundant in goodness and truth,
keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression
and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the
iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s
children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and
worshipped.
And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord, let my
Lord, I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and
pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance.
¶ And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I
will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in
any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the
work of the Lord: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.

Israel Warned of the Idolatry of Canaan
¶ Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I
drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the
Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite.
Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the
inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in
the midst of thee:
but ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down
their groves:
for thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is
Jealous, is a jealous God.
Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and
they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods,
and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice;
and thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters
go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after
their gods.
¶ Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.
The Three Appointed Feasts
¶ The feast of unleavened bread shalt thou keep. Seven days thou
shalt eat unleavened bread, as I commanded thee, in the time of the
month Abib: for in the month Abib thou camest out from Egypt.
All that openeth the matrix is mine; and every firstling among thy
cattle, whether ox or sheep, that is male.
But the firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb: and if
thou redeem him not, then shalt thou break his neck. All the
firstborn of thy sons thou shalt redeem. And none shall appear
before me empty.
¶ Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest:
in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.
And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat
harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end.

Lord God, the God of Israel.
For I will cast out the nations before thee, and enlarge thy borders:
neither shall any man desire thy land, when thou shalt go up to
appear before the Lord thy God thrice in the year.
¶ Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven;
neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the
morning.
The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the
house of the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his
mother’s milk.
Moses and the Tables of the Law
¶ And the Lord said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after
the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with
Israel.
And he was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights; he did
neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables
the words of the covenant, the ten commandments [heb. words].
¶ And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai
with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came
down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face
shone while he talked with him.
And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold,
the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.
And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the
congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.
And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave
them in commandment all that the Lord had spoken with him in
mount Sinai.
And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a veil on his
face.

Moses’ face shone: and Moses put the veil upon his face again, until
he went in to speak with him.
35
Regulations for the Sabbath
And Moses gathered all the congregation of the children of Israel
together, and said unto them, These are the words which the Lord
hath commanded, that ye should do them.
Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to
you a holy day, a sabbath of rest to the Lord: whosoever doeth
work therein shall be put to death.
Ye shall kindle no fire throughout your habitations upon the
sabbath day.
Israel to Bring an Offering
¶ And Moses spake unto all the congregation of the children of
Israel, saying, This is the thing which the Lord commanded,
saying,
Take ye from among you an offering unto the Lord: whosoever is
of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the Lord; gold,
and silver, and brass,
and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair,
and rams’ skins dyed red, and badgers’ skins, and shittim wood,
and oil for the light, and spices for anointing oil, and for the sweet
incense,
and onyx stones, and stones to be set for the ephod, and for the
breastplate.

boards, his bars, his pillars, and his sockets;
the ark, and the staves thereof, with the mercy seat, and the veil of
the covering;
the table, and his staves, and all his vessels, and the showbread;
the candlestick also for the light, and his furniture, and his lamps,
with the oil for the light;
and the incense altar, and his staves, and the anointing oil, and the
sweet incense, and the hanging for the door at the entering in of
the tabernacle;
the altar of burnt offering, with his brazen grate, his staves, and all
his vessels, the laver and his foot;
the hangings of the court, his pillars, and their sockets, and the
hanging for the door of the court;
the pins of the tabernacle, and the pins of the court, and their
cords;
the clothes of service, to do service in the holy place, the holy
garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to
minister in the priest’s office.
The People Bring the Offering
¶ And all the congregation of the children of Israel departed from
the presence of Moses.
And they came, every one whose heart stirred him up, and every
one whom his spirit made willing, and they brought the Lord’s
offering to the work of the tabernacle of the congregation, and for
all his service, and for the holy garments.
And they came, both men and women, as many as were willinghearted,
and brought bracelets, and earrings, and rings, and tablets,

And every man, with whom was found blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and red skins of rams, and
badgers’ skins, brought them.
Every one that did offer an offering of silver and brass brought the
Lord’s offering: and every man, with whom was found shittim
wood for any work of the service, brought it.
And all the women that were wise-hearted did spin with their
hands, and brought that which they had spun, both of blue, and of
purple, and of scarlet, and of fine linen.
And all the women whose heart stirred them up in wisdom spun
goats’ hair.
And the rulers brought onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the
ephod, and for the breastplate;
and spice, and oil for the light, and for the anointing oil, and for
the sweet incense.
The children of Israel brought a willing offering unto the Lord,
every man and woman, whose heart made them willing to bring
for all manner of work, which the Lord had commanded to be
made by the hand of Moses.
The Call of Bezaleel and Aholiab
¶ And Moses said unto the children of Israel, See, the Lord hath
called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe
of Judah;
and he hath filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, in
understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of
workmanship;
and to devise curious works, to work in gold, and in silver, and in
brass,
and in the cutting of stones, to set them, and in carving of wood, to
make any manner of cunning work.

Them hath he filled with wisdom of heart, to work all manner of
work, of the engraver, and of the cunning workman, and of the
embroiderer, in blue, and in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen,
and of the weaver, even of them that do any work, and of those that
devise cunning work.
36
Then wrought Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise-hearted man,
in whom the Lord put wisdom and understanding to know how
to work all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary,
according to all that the Lord had commanded.
Moses Restrains the People from Bringing Gifts
¶ And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise-hearted
man, in whose heart the Lord had put wisdom, even every one
whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:
and they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of
Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to
make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every
morning.
And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary,
came every man from his work which they made;
and they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more
than enough for the service of the work, which the Lord
commanded to make.
And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be
proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor
woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So
the people were restrained from bringing.
For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and
too much.

The Making of the Tabernacle
¶ And every wise-hearted man among them that wrought the work
of the tabernacle made ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue,
and purple, and scarlet: with cherubim of cunning work made he
them.
The length of one curtain was twenty and eight cubits, and the
breadth of one curtain four cubits: the curtains were all of one size.
¶ And he coupled the five curtains one unto another: and the other
five curtains he coupled one unto another.
And he made loops of blue on the edge of one curtain from the
selvedge in the coupling: likewise he made in the uttermost side of
another curtain, in the coupling of the second.
Fifty loops made he in one curtain, and fifty loops made he in the
edge of the curtain which was in the coupling of the second: the
loops held one curtain to another.
And he made fifty taches of gold, and coupled the curtains one unto
another with the taches: so it became one tabernacle.
¶ And he made curtains of goats’ hair for the tent over the
tabernacle: eleven curtains he made them.
The length of one curtain was thirty cubits, and four cubits was the
breadth of one curtain: the eleven curtains were of one size.
And he coupled five curtains by themselves, and six curtains by
themselves.
And he made fifty loops upon the uttermost edge of the curtain in
the coupling, and fifty loops made he upon the edge of the curtain
which coupleth the second.
And he made fifty taches of brass to couple the tent together, that it
might be one.
And he made a covering for the tent of rams’ skins dyed red, and a
covering of badgers’ skins above that.
¶ And he made boards for the tabernacle of shittim wood, standing
up.
The length of a board was ten cubits, and the breadth of a board one
cubit and a half.

One board had two tenons, equally distant one from another: thus
did he make for all the boards of the tabernacle.
And he made boards for the tabernacle; twenty boards for the south
side southward:
and forty sockets of silver he made under the twenty boards; two
sockets under one board for his two tenons, and two sockets under
another board for his two tenons.
And for the other side of the tabernacle, which is toward the north
corner, he made twenty boards,
and their forty sockets of silver; two sockets under one board, and
two sockets under another board.
And for the sides of the tabernacle westward he made six boards.
And two boards made he for the corners of the tabernacle in the
two sides.
And they were coupled beneath, and coupled together at the head
thereof, to one ring: thus he did to both of them in both the
corners.
And there were eight boards; and their sockets were sixteen sockets
of silver, under every board two sockets.
¶ And he made bars of shittim wood; five for the boards of the one
side of the tabernacle,
and five bars for the boards of the other side of the tabernacle, and
five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the sides westward.
And he made the middle bar to shoot through the boards from the
one end to the other.
And he overlaid the boards with gold, and made their rings of gold
to be places for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.
¶ And he made a veil of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine
twined linen: with cherubim made he it of cunning work.
And he made thereunto four pillars of shittim wood, and overlaid
them with gold: their hooks were of gold; and he cast for them four
sockets of silver.
And he made a hanging for the tabernacle door of blue, and purple,
and scarlet, and fine twined linen, of needlework;

The Furnishings of the Tabernacle
And Bezaleel made the ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half
was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a
cubit and a half the height of it:
and he overlaid it with pure gold within and without, and made a
crown of gold to it round about.
And he cast for it four rings of gold, to be set by the four corners of
it; even two rings upon the one side of it, and two rings upon the
other side of it.
And he made staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with gold.
And he put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, to bear
the ark.
And he made the mercy seat of pure gold: two cubits and a half was
the length thereof, and one cubit and a half the breadth thereof.
And he made two cherubim of gold, beaten out of one piece made
he them, on the two ends of the mercy seat;
one cherub on the end on this side, and another cherub on the other
end on that side: out of the mercy seat made he the cherubim on
the two ends thereof.
And the cherubim spread out their wings on high, and covered with
their wings over the mercy seat, with their faces one to another;
even to the mercy seatward were the faces of the cherubim.
¶ And he made the table of shittim wood: two cubits was the length
thereof, and a cubit the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the
height thereof:
and he overlaid it with pure gold, and made thereunto a crown of
gold round about.

Also he made thereunto a border of a handbreadth round about;

And he cast for it four rings of gold, and put the rings upon the four
corners that were in the four feet thereof.
Over against the border were the rings, the places for the staves to
bear the table.
And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with
gold, to bear the table.
And he made the vessels which were upon the table, his dishes, and
his spoons, and his bowls, and his covers to cover withal, of pure
gold.
¶ And he made the candlestick of pure gold: of beaten work made he
the candlestick; his shaft, and his branch, his bowls, his knops, and
his flowers, were of the same:
and six branches going out of the sides thereof; three branches of
the candlestick out of the one side thereof, and three branches of
the candlestick out of the other side thereof:
three bowls made after the fashion of almonds in one branch, a
knop and a flower; and three bowls made like almonds in another
branch, a knop and a flower: so throughout the six branches going
out of the candlestick.
And in the candlestick were four bowls made like almonds, his
knops, and his flowers:
and a knop under two branches of the same, and a knop under two
branches of the same, and a knop under two branches of the same,
according to the six branches going out of it.
Their knops and their branches were of the same: all of it was one
beaten work of pure gold.
And he made his seven lamps, and his snuffers, and his snuffdishes,
of pure gold.
Of a talent of pure gold made he it, and all the vessels thereof.
¶ And he made the incense altar of shittim wood: the length of it
was a cubit, and the breadth of it a cubit; it was foursquare; and two
cubits was the height of it; the horns thereof were of the same.

the two corners of it, upon the two sides thereof, to be places for
the staves to bear it withal.
And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with
gold.
¶ And he made the holy anointing oil, and the pure incense of
sweet spices, according to the work of the apothecary.
38
And he made the altar of burnt offering of shittim wood: five cubits
was the length thereof, and five cubits the breadth thereof; it was
foursquare; and three cubits the height thereof.
And he made the horns thereof on the four corners of it; the horns
thereof were of the same: and he overlaid it with brass.
And he made all the vessels of the altar, the pots, and the shovels,
and the basins, and the fleshhooks, and the firepans: all the vessels
thereof made he of brass.
And he made for the altar a brazen grate of network, under the
compass thereof, beneath unto the midst of it.
And he cast four rings for the four ends of the grate of brass, to be
places for the staves.
And he made the staves of shittim wood, and overlaid them with
brass.
And he put the staves into the rings on the sides of the altar, to bear
it withal; he made the altar hollow with boards.
¶ And he made the laver of brass, and the foot of it of brass, of the
looking glasses of the women assembling, which assembled at the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

The Court of the Tabernacle
¶ And he made the court: on the south side southward the
hangings of the court were of fine twined linen, a hundred cubits:
their pillars were twenty, and their brazen sockets twenty; the
hooks of the pillars and their fillets were of silver.
And for the north side the hangings were a hundred cubits, their
pillars were twenty, and their sockets of brass twenty; the hooks of
the pillars and their fillets of silver.
And for the west side were hangings of fifty cubits, their pillars ten,
and their sockets ten; the hooks of the pillars and their fillets of

And for the east side eastward fifty cubits.
The hangings of the one side of the gate were fifteen cubits; their
pillars three, and their sockets three.
And for the other side of the court gate, on this hand and that
hand, were hangings of fifteen cubits; their pillars three, and their
sockets three.
All the hangings of the court round about were of fine twined linen.
And the sockets for the pillars were of brass; the hooks of the pillars
and their fillets of silver; and the overlaying of their chapiters of
silver; and all the pillars of the court were filleted with silver.
And the hanging for the gate of the court was needlework, of blue,
and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen: and twenty cubits
was the length, and the height in the breadth was five cubits,
answerable to the hangings of the court.
And their pillars were four, and their sockets of brass four; their
hooks of silver, and the overlaying of their chapiters and their fillets
of silver.
And all the pins of the tabernacle, and of the court round about,
were of brass.

The Supervision of the Work
¶ This is the sum of the tabernacle, even of the tabernacle of
testimony, as it was counted, according to the commandment of
Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar, son to
Aaron the priest.
And Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,
made all that the Lord commanded Moses.
And with him was Aholiab, son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan,
an engraver, and a cunning workman, and an embroiderer in blue,
and in purple, and in scarlet, and fine linen.
The Metal of the Sanctuary
¶ All the gold that was occupied for the work in all the work of the
holy place, even the gold of the offering, was twenty and nine
talents, and seven hundred and thirty shekels, after the shekel of
the sanctuary.
And the silver of them that were numbered of the congregation was
a hundred talents, and a thousand seven hundred and threescore
and fifteen shekels, after the shekel of the sanctuary:
a bekah for every man, that is, half a shekel, after the shekel of the
sanctuary, for every one that went to be numbered, from twenty
years old and upward, for six hundred thousand and three
thousand and five hundred and fifty men.
And of the hundred talents of silver were cast the sockets of the
sanctuary, and the sockets of the veil; a hundred sockets of the
hundred talents, a talent for a socket.
And of the thousand seven hundred seventy and five shekels he
made hooks for the pillars, and overlaid their chapiters, and filleted
them.
And the brass of the offering was seventy talents, and two thousand
and four hundred shekels.

court gate, and all the pins of the tabernacle, and all the pins of the
court round about.

The Making of the Priests’ Garments
And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made clothes of
service, to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments
for Aaron; as the Lord commanded Moses.
¶ And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and
fine twined linen.
And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to
work it in the blue, and in the purple, and in the scarlet, and in the
fine linen, with cunning work.
They made shoulderpieces for it, to couple it together: by the two
edges was it coupled together.
And the curious girdle of his ephod, that was upon it, was of the
same, according to the work thereof; of gold, blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine twined linen; as the Lord commanded Moses.
¶ And they wrought onyx stones inclosed in ouches of gold, graven,
as signets are graven, with the names of the children of Israel.
And he put them on the shoulders of the ephod, that they should be
stones for a memorial to the children of Israel; as the Lord
commanded Moses.
¶ And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of
the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined
linen.
It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span was the
length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled.

And they set in it four rows of stones: the first row was a sardius, a

And the second row, an emerald, a sapphire, and a diamond.
And the third row, a ligure, an agate, and an amethyst.
And the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper: they were
inclosed in ouches of gold in their inclosings.
And the stones were according to the names of the children of
Israel, twelve according to their names, like the engravings of a
signet, every one with his name, according to the twelve tribes.
And they made upon the breastplate chains at the ends, of wreathed
work of pure gold.
And they made two ouches of gold, and two gold rings, and put the
two rings in the two ends of the breastplate.
And they put the two wreathed chains of gold in the two rings on
the ends of the breastplate.
And the two ends of the two wreathed chains they fastened in the
two ouches, and put them on the shoulderpieces of the ephod,
before it.
And they made two rings of gold, and put them on the two ends of
the breastplate, upon the border of it, which was on the side of the
ephod inward.
And they made two other golden rings, and put them on the two
sides of the ephod underneath, toward the forepart of it, over
against the other coupling thereof, above the curious girdle of the
ephod.
And they did bind the breastplate by his rings unto the rings of the
ephod with a lace of blue, that it might be above the curious girdle
of the ephod, and that the breastplate might not be loosed from the
ephod; as the Lord commanded Moses.
¶ And he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of blue.
And there was a hole in the midst of the robe, as the hole of an
habergeon, with a band round about the hole, that it should not
rend.
And they made upon the hems of the robe pomegranates of blue,
and purple, and scarlet, and twined linen.

pomegranates;
a bell and a pomegranate, a bell and a pomegranate, round about
the hem of the robe to minister in; as the Lord commanded
Moses.
¶ And they made coats of fine linen of woven work for Aaron, and
for his sons,
and a mitre of fine linen, and goodly bonnets of fine linen, and
linen breeches of fine twined linen,
and a girdle of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet,
of needlework; as the Lord commanded Moses.
¶ And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and
wrote upon it a writing, like to the engravings of a signet,
Holiness to the Lord.
And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten it on high upon the
mitre; as the Lord commanded Moses.
The Tabernacle Articles Completed
¶ Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the
congregation finished: and the children of Israel did according to
all that the Lord commanded Moses, so did they.
And they brought the tabernacle unto Moses, the tent, and all his
furniture, his taches, his boards, his bars, and his pillars, and his
sockets;
and the covering of rams’ skins dyed red, and the covering of
badgers’ skins, and the veil of the covering;
the ark of the testimony, and the staves thereof, and the mercy seat;
the table, and all the vessels thereof, and the showbread;
the pure candlestick, with the lamps thereof, even with the lamps to
be set in order, and all the vessels thereof, and the oil for light;
and the golden altar, and the anointing oil, and the sweet incense,
and the hanging for the tabernacle door;

the hangings of the court, his pillars, and his sockets, and the
hanging for the court gate, his cords, and his pins, and all the
vessels of the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of the
congregation;
the clothes of service to do service in the holy place, and the holy
garments for Aaron the priest, and his sons’ garments, to minister
in the priest’s office.
According to all that the Lord commanded Moses, so the children
of Israel made all the work.
And Moses did look upon all the work, and, behold, they had done
it as the Lord had commanded, even so had they done it: and
Moses blessed them.
40
The Setting Up of the Tabernacle
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle
of the tent of the congregation.
And thou shalt put therein the ark of the testimony, and cover the
ark with the veil.
And thou shalt bring in the table, and set in order the things that
are to be set in order upon it; and thou shalt bring in the
candlestick, and light the lamps thereof.
And thou shalt set the altar of gold for the incense before the ark of
the testimony, and put the hanging of the door to the tabernacle.
And thou shalt set the altar of the burnt offering before the door of
the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
And thou shalt set the laver between the tent of the congregation
and the altar, and shalt put water therein.
And thou shalt set up the court round about, and hang up the
hanging at the court gate.

thereof: and it shall be holy.
And thou shalt anoint the altar of the burnt offering, and all his
vessels, and sanctify the altar: and it shall be an altar most holy.
And thou shalt anoint the laver and his foot, and sanctify it.
And thou shalt bring Aaron and his sons unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, and wash them with water.
And thou shalt put upon Aaron the holy garments, and anoint him,
and sanctify him; that he may minister unto me in the priest’s
office.
And thou shalt bring his sons, and clothe them with coats:
and thou shalt anoint them, as thou didst anoint their father, that
they may minister unto me in the priest’s office: for their anointing
shall surely be an everlasting priesthood throughout their
generations.
¶ Thus did Moses: according to all that the Lord commanded him,
so did he.
And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the
first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.
And Moses reared up the tabernacle, and fastened his sockets, and
set up the boards thereof, and put in the bars thereof, and reared up
his pillars.
And he spread abroad the tent over the tabernacle, and put the
covering of the tent above upon it; as the Lord commanded
Moses.
And he took and put the testimony into the ark, and set the staves
on the ark, and put the mercy seat above upon the ark:
and he brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up the veil of
the covering, and covered the ark of the testimony; as the Lord
commanded Moses.
And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side
of the tabernacle northward, without the veil.
And he set the bread in order upon it before the Lord; as the Lord
had commanded Moses.

commanded Moses.
And he put the golden altar in the tent of the congregation before
the veil:
and he burnt sweet incense thereon; as the Lord commanded
Moses.
And he set up the hanging at the door of the tabernacle.
And he put the altar of burnt offering by the door of the tabernacle
of the tent of the congregation, and offered upon it the burnt
offering and the meat offering; as the Lord commanded Moses.
And he set the laver between the tent of the congregation and the
altar, and put water there, to wash withal.
And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their
feet thereat:
when they went into the tent of the congregation, and when they
came near unto the altar, they washed; as the Lord commanded
Moses.
And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the
altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished
the work.
The Cloud over the Tabernacle
¶ Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory
of the Lord filled the tabernacle.
And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation,
because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the Lord filled
the tabernacle.
And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the
children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:
but if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the
day that it was taken up.

Burnt Offerings
And the Lord called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the
tabernacle of the congregation, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of
you bring an offering unto the Lord, ye shall bring your offering
of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock.
¶ If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male
without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the Lord.
And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and
it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.
And he shall kill the bullock before the Lord: and the priests,
Aaron’s sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round
about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation.
And he shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces.
And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and
lay the wood in order upon the fire:
and the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the
fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the
altar:
but his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest
shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made
by fire, of a sweet savor unto the Lord.
¶ And if his offering be of the flocks, namely, of the sheep, or of the
goats, for a burnt sacrifice; he shall bring it a male without blemish.

And he shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before the

about upon the altar.
And he shall cut it into his pieces, with his head and his fat: and the
priest shall lay them in order on the wood that is on the fire which
is upon the altar:
but he shall wash the inwards and the legs with water: and the
priest shall bring it all, and burn it upon the altar: it is a burnt
sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto the Lord.
¶ And if the burnt sacrifice for his offering to the Lord be of fowls,
then he shall bring his offering of turtledoves, or of young pigeons.
And the priest shall bring it unto the altar, and wring off his head,
and burn it on the altar; and the blood thereof shall be wrung out at
the side of the altar:
and he shall pluck away his crop with his feathers, and cast it beside
the altar on the east part, by the place of the ashes.
And he shall cleave it with the wings thereof, but shall not divide it
asunder: and the priest shall burn it upon the altar, upon the wood
that is upon the fire: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire,
of a sweet savor unto the Lord.

Meal Offerings
And when any will offer a meat offering unto the Lord, his
offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put
frankincense thereon.
And he shall bring it to Aaron’s sons the priests: and he shall take
thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof,
with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn the
memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a
sweet savor unto the Lord:
and the remnant of the meat offering shall be Aaron’s and his sons’:
it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the Lord made by fire.

oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or
unleavened wafers anointed with oil.
And if thy oblation be a meat offering baked in a pan, it shall be of
fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil.
Thou shalt part it in pieces, and pour oil thereon: it is a meat
offering.
And if thy oblation be a meat offering baked in the frying pan, it
shall be made of fine flour with oil.
And thou shalt bring the meat offering that is made of these things
unto the Lord: and when it is presented unto the priest, he shall
bring it unto the altar.
And the priest shall take from the meat offering a memorial
thereof, and shall burn it upon the altar: it is an offering made by
fire, of a sweet savor unto the Lord.
And that which is left of the meat offering shall be Aaron’s and his
sons’: it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the Lord made by
fire.
¶ No meat offering, which ye shall bring unto the Lord, shall be
made with leaven: for ye shall burn no leaven, nor any honey, in
any offering of the Lord made by fire.
As for the oblation of the firstfruits, ye shall offer them unto the
Lord: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savor.
And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with salt;
neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God to be
lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou shalt
offer salt.
¶ And if thou offer a meat offering of thy firstfruits unto the Lord,
thou shalt offer for the meat offering of thy firstfruits green ears of
corn dried by the fire, even corn beaten out of full ears.
And thou shalt put oil upon it, and lay frankincense thereon: it is a
meat offering.
And the priest shall burn the memorial of it, part of the beaten corn
thereof, and part of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense
thereof: it is an offering made by fire unto the Lord.

Peace Offerings
And if his oblation be a sacrifice of peace offering, if he offer it of
the herd, whether it be a male or female, he shall offer it without
blemish before the Lord.
And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and kill it
at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron’s sons
the priests shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.
And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an offering
made by fire unto the Lord; the fat that covereth the inwards, and
all the fat that is upon the inwards,
and the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the
flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he
take away.
And Aaron’s sons shall burn it on the altar upon the burnt sacrifice,
which is upon the wood that is on the fire: it is an offering made by
fire, of a sweet savor unto the Lord.
¶ And if his offering for a sacrifice of peace offering unto the Lord
be of the flock, male or female, he shall offer it without blemish.
If he offer a lamb for his offering, then shall he offer it before the
Lord.
And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his offering, and kill it
before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron’s sons shall
sprinkle the blood thereof round about upon the altar.
And he shall offer of the sacrifice of the peace offering an offering
made by fire unto the Lord; the fat thereof, and the whole rump, it
shall he take off hard by the backbone; and the fat that covereth the
inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards,
and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the
flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he
take away.
And the priest shall burn it upon the altar: it is the food of the
offering made by fire unto the Lord.

It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all

Sin Offerings
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a soul shall sin through
ignorance against any of the commandments of the Lord
concerning things which ought not to be done, and shall do against
any of them:
if the priest that is anointed do sin according to the sin of the
people; then let him bring for his sin, which he hath sinned, a
young bullock without blemish unto the Lord for a sin offering.
And he shall bring the bullock unto the door of the tabernacle of
the congregation before the Lord; and shall lay his hand upon the
bullock’s head, and kill the bullock before the Lord.
And the priest that is anointed shall take of the bullock’s blood, and
bring it to the tabernacle of the congregation:
and the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle of the
blood seven times before the Lord, before the veil of the sanctuary.

altar of sweet incense before the Lord, which is in the tabernacle
of the congregation; and shall pour all the blood of the bullock at
the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of
the tabernacle of the congregation.
And he shall take off from it all the fat of the bullock for the sin
offering; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is
upon the inwards,
and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the
flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he
take away,
as it was taken off from the bullock of the sacrifice of peace
offerings: and the priest shall burn them upon the altar of the
burnt offering.
And the skin of the bullock, and all his flesh, with his head, and
with his legs, and his inwards, and his dung,
even the whole bullock shall he carry forth without the camp unto
a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn him on the
wood with fire: where the ashes are poured out shall he be burnt.
¶ And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through ignorance,
and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have
done somewhat against any of the commandments of the Lord
concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty;
when the sin, which they have sinned against it, is known, then the
congregation shall offer a young bullock for the sin, and bring him
before the tabernacle of the congregation.
And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands upon the
head of the bullock before the Lord; and the bullock shall be killed
before the Lord.
And the priest that is anointed shall bring of the bullock’s blood to
the tabernacle of the congregation:
and the priest shall dip his finger in some of the blood, and sprinkle
it seven times before the Lord, even before the veil.
And he shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar
which is before the Lord, that is in the tabernacle of the

congregation, and shall pour out all the blood at the bottom of the
altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of
the congregation.
And he shall take all his fat from him, and burn it upon the altar.
And he shall do with the bullock as he did with the bullock for a sin
offering, so shall he do with this: and the priest shall make an
atonement for them, and it shall be forgiven them.
And he shall carry forth the bullock without the camp, and burn
him as he burned the first bullock: it is a sin offering for the
congregation.
¶ When a ruler hath sinned, and done somewhat through ignorance
against any of the commandments of the Lord his God concerning
things which should not be done, and is guilty;
or if his sin, wherein he hath sinned, come to his knowledge; he
shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a male without blemish:
and he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and kill it in
the place where they kill the burnt offering before the Lord: it is a
sin offering.
And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his
finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and
shall pour out his blood at the bottom of the altar of burnt offering.
And he shall burn all his fat upon the altar, as the fat of the sacrifice
of peace offerings: and the priest shall make an atonement for him
as concerning his sin, and it shall be forgiven him.
¶ And if any one of the common people sin through ignorance,
while he doeth somewhat against any of the commandments of the
Lord concerning things which ought not to be done, and be guilty;
or if his sin, which he hath sinned, come to his knowledge; then he
shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a female without
blemish, for his sin which he hath sinned.
And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin offering, and
slay the sin offering in the place of the burnt offering.
And the priest shall take of the blood thereof with his finger, and
put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour
out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the altar.

¶ And if he bring a lamb for a sin offering, he shall bring it a female
without blemish.
And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin offering, and
slay it for a sin offering in the place where they kill the burnt

And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his

unclean beast, or a carcass of unclean cattle, or the carcass of

the goats, for a sin offering; and the priest shall make an atonement
for him concerning his sin.
¶ And if he be not able to bring a lamb, then he shall bring for his
trespass, which he hath committed, two turtledoves, or two young
pigeons, unto the Lord; one for a sin offering, and the other for a
burnt offering.
And he shall bring them unto the priest, who shall offer that which
is for the sin offering first, and wring off his head from his neck, but
shall not divide it asunder:
and he shall sprinkle of the blood of the sin offering upon the side
of the altar; and the rest of the blood shall be wrung out at the
bottom of the altar: it is a sin offering.
And he shall offer the second for a burnt offering, according to the
manner: and the priest shall make an atonement for him for his sin
which he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.
¶ But if he be not able to bring two turtledoves, or two young
pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth
part of an ephah of fine flour for a sin offering; he shall put no oil
upon it, neither shall he put any frankincense thereon: for it is a sin
offering.
Then shall he bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take his
handful of it, even a memorial thereof, and burn it on the altar,
according to the offerings made by fire unto the Lord: it is a sin
offering.
And the priest shall make an atonement for him as touching his sin
that he hath sinned in one of these, and it shall be forgiven him:
and the remnant shall be the priest’s, as a meat offering.
Trespass Offerings

237 Leviticus 6
If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, in the holy
things of the Lord; then he shall bring for his trespass unto the
Lord a ram without blemish out of the flocks, with thy estimation
by shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass
offering:
and he shall make amends for the harm that he hath done in the
holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it unto the
priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him with the
ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.
¶ And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are
forbidden to be done by the commandments of the Lord; though
he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.
And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy
estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest: and the priest
shall make an atonement for him concerning his ignorance
wherein he erred and wist it not, and it shall be forgiven him.
It is a trespass offering: he hath certainly trespassed against the
Lord.
6
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the Lord, and lie unto
his neighbor in that which was delivered him to keep, or in
fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived
his neighbor;
or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and
sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning
therein:
then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall
restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he
hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or
the lost thing which he found,
or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore
it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and

give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass
offering.
And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the Lord, a ram
without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass
offering, unto the priest:
and the priest shall make an atonement for him before the Lord:
and it shall be forgiven him for any thing of all that he hath done in
trespassing therein.
The Law of the Offerings
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt
offering: It is the burnt offering, because of the burning upon the
altar all night unto the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be
burning in it.
And the priest shall put on his linen garment, and his linen
breeches shall he put upon his flesh, and take up the ashes which
the fire hath consumed with the burnt offering on the altar, and he
shall put them beside the altar.
And he shall put off his garments, and put on other garments, and
carry forth the ashes without the camp unto a clean place.
And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put
out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay
the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the
fat of the peace offerings.
The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out.
¶ And this is the law of the meat offering: The sons of Aaron shall
offer it before the Lord, before the altar.
And he shall take of it his handful, of the flour of the meat offering,
and of the oil thereof, and all the frankincense which is upon the
meat offering, and shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savor, even
the memorial of it, unto the Lord.

And the remainder thereof shall Aaron and his sons eat: with
unleavened bread shall it be eaten in the holy place; in the court of
the tabernacle of the congregation they shall eat it.
It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it unto them for their
portion of my offerings made by fire; it is most holy, as is the sin
offering, and as the trespass offering.
All the males among the children of Aaron shall eat of it. It shall be a
statute for ever in your generations concerning the offerings of the
Lord made by fire: every one that toucheth them shall be holy.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
This is the offering of Aaron and of his sons, which they shall offer
unto the Lord in the day when he is anointed; the tenth part of an
ephah of fine flour for a meat offering perpetual, half of it in the
morning, and half thereof at night.
In a pan it shall be made with oil; and when it is baked, thou shalt
bring it in: and the baked pieces of the meat offering shalt thou
offer for a sweet savor unto the Lord.
And the priest of his sons that is anointed in his stead shall offer it:
it is a statute for ever unto the Lord; it shall be wholly burnt.
For every meat offering for the priest shall be wholly burnt: it shall
not be eaten.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin
offering: In the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the sin
offering be killed before the Lord: it is most holy.
The priest that offereth it for sin shall eat it: in the holy place shall
it be eaten, in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation.
Whatsoever shall touch the flesh thereof shall be holy: and when
there is sprinkled of the blood thereof upon any garment, thou
shalt wash that whereon it was sprinkled in the holy place.
But the earthen vessel wherein it is sodden shall be broken: and if it
be sodden in a brazen pot, it shall be both scoured, and rinsed in
water.
All the males among the priests shall eat thereof: it is most holy.

And no sin offering, whereof any of the blood is brought into the
tabernacle of the congregation to reconcile withal in the holy place,
shall be eaten: it shall be burnt in the fire.
7
Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering: it is most holy.
In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the
trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle round
about upon the altar.
And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and the fat that
covereth the inwards,
and the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the
flanks, and the caul that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall
he take away:
and the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made
by fire unto the Lord: it is a trespass offering.
Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in
the holy place: it is most holy.
As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is one law for
them: the priest that maketh atonement therewith shall have it.
And the priest that offereth any man’s burnt offering, even the
priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he
hath offered.
And all the meat offering that is baked in the oven, and all that is
dressed in the frying pan, and in the pan, shall be the priest’s that
offereth it.
And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall all the
sons of Aaron have, one as much as another.
¶ And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he
shall offer unto the Lord.
If he offer it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the
sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and
unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil,
of fine flour, fried.

Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with
the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings.
And of it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for a heave
offering unto the Lord, and it shall be the priest’s that sprinkleth
the blood of the peace offerings.
And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving
shall be eaten the same day that it is offered; he shall not leave any
of it until the morning.
But if the sacrifice of his offering be a vow, or a voluntary offering,
it shall be eaten the same day that he offereth his sacrifice; and on
the morrow also the remainder of it shall be eaten:
but the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall
be burnt with fire.
And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten
at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be
imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination, and
the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity.
¶ And the flesh that toucheth any unclean thing shall not be eaten;
it shall be burnt with fire: and as for the flesh, all that be clean shall
eat thereof.
But the soul that eateth of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace
offerings, that pertain unto the Lord, having his uncleanness upon
him, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.
Moreover the soul that shall touch any unclean thing, as the
uncleanness of man, or any unclean beast, or any abominable
unclean thing, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings,
which pertain unto the Lord, even that soul shall be cut off from
his people.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat no manner of
fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat.
And the fat of the beast that dieth of itself, and the fat of that which
is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use: but ye shall in no
wise eat of it.

shall be cut off from his people.
Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of
beast, in any of your dwellings.
Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even that
soul shall be cut off from his people.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, He that offereth the
sacrifice of his peace offerings unto the Lord, shall bring his
oblation unto the Lord of the sacrifice of his peace offerings.
His own hands shall bring the offerings of the Lord made by fire,
the fat with the breast; it shall he bring, that the breast may be
waved for a wave offering before the Lord.
And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar: but the breast shall
be Aaron’s and his sons’.
And the right shoulder shall ye give unto the priest for a heave
offering of the sacrifices of your peace offerings.
He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood of the peace
offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part.
For the wave breast and the heave shoulder have I taken of the
children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and
have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons, by a
statute for ever, from among the children of Israel.
This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of
his sons, out of the offerings of the Lord made by fire, in the day
when he presented them to minister unto the Lord in the priest’s
office;
which the Lord commanded to be given them of the children of
Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever
throughout their generations.
¶ This is the law of the burnt offering, of the meat offering, and of
the sin offering, and of the trespass offering, and of the
consecrations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings;

The Consecration of Aaron and His Sons
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the
anointing oil, and a bullock for the sin offering, and two rams, and
a basket of unleavened bread;
and gather thou all the congregation together unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation.
And Moses did as the Lord commanded him; and the assembly
was gathered together unto the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation.
¶ And Moses said unto the congregation, This is the thing which
the Lord commanded to be done.
And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with
water.
And he put upon him the coat, and girded him with the girdle, and
clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him, and he
girded him with the curious girdle of the ephod, and bound it unto
him therewith.
And he put the breastplate upon him: also he put in the breastplate
the Urim and the Thummim.
And he put the mitre upon his head; also upon the mitre, even upon
his forefront, did he put the golden plate, the holy crown; as the
Lord commanded Moses.
¶ And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle
and all that was therein, and sanctified them.
And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed
the altar and all his vessels, both the laver and his foot, to sanctify
them.

And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head, and
anointed him, to sanctify him.
And Moses brought Aaron’s sons, and put coats upon them, and
girded them with girdles, and put bonnets upon them; as the Lord
commanded Moses.
¶ And he brought the bullock for the sin offering: and Aaron and
his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock for the sin
offering.
And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the
horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the
altar, and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and
sanctified it, to make reconciliation upon it.
And he took all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the caul
above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and Moses
burned it upon the altar.
But the bullock, and his hide, his flesh, and his dung, he burnt with
fire without the camp; as the Lord commanded Moses.
¶ And he brought the ram for the burnt offering: and Aaron and his
sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.
And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar
round about.
And he cut the ram into pieces; and Moses burnt the head, and the
pieces, and the fat.
And he washed the inwards and the legs in water; and Moses burnt
the whole ram upon the altar: it was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet
savor, and an offering made by fire unto the Lord; as the Lord
commanded Moses.
¶ And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration: and
Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.
And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it upon
the tip of Aaron’s right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand,
and upon the great toe of his right foot.
And he brought Aaron’s sons, and Moses put of the blood upon the
tip of their right ear, and upon the thumbs of their right hands, and

upon the great toes of their right feet: and Moses sprinkled the
blood upon the altar round about.
And he took the fat, and the rump, and all the fat that was upon the
inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their
fat, and the right shoulder:
and out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before the
Lord, he took one unleavened cake, and a cake of oiled bread, and
one wafer, and put them on the fat, and upon the right shoulder:
and he put all upon Aaron’s hands, and upon his sons’ hands, and
waved them for a wave offering before the Lord.
And Moses took them from off their hands, and burnt them on the
altar upon the burnt offering: they were consecrations for a sweet
savor: it is an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave offering before
the Lord: for of the ram of consecration it was Moses’ part; as the
Lord commanded Moses.
¶ And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was
upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his
garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sons’ garments with
him; and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his
sons’ garments with him.
¶ And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation; and there eat it with the
bread that is in the basket of consecrations, as I commanded,
saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it.
And that which remaineth of the flesh and of the bread shall ye
burn with fire.
And ye shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation in seven days, until the days of your consecration be at
an end: for seven days shall he consecrate you.
As he hath done this day, so the Lord hath commanded to do, to
make an atonement for you.
Therefore shall ye abide at the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the
Lord, that ye die not: for so I am commanded.

Aaron Offers Sacrifices
And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and
his sons, and the elders of Israel;
and he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a sin offering,
and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them
before the Lord.
And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak, saying, Take ye a
kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both of the
first year, without blemish, for a burnt offering;
also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the
Lord; and a meat offering mingled with oil: for today the Lord
will appear unto you.
And they brought that which Moses commanded before the
tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near
and stood before the Lord.
And Moses said, This is the thing which the Lord commanded that
ye should do: and the glory of the Lord shall appear unto you.
And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy sin
offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for
thyself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and
make an atonement for them; as the Lord commanded.
¶ Aaron therefore went unto the altar, and slew the calf of the sin
offering, which was for himself.
And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and he dipped
his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar, and
poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar:
but the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of the sin
offering, he burnt upon the altar; as the Lord commanded Moses.
And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without the camp.

him the blood, which he sprinkled round about upon the altar.
And they presented the burnt offering unto him, with the pieces
thereof, and the head: and he burnt them upon the altar.
And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt them upon the
burnt offering on the altar.
¶ And he brought the people’s offering, and took the goat, which
was the sin offering for the people, and slew it, and offered it for
sin, as the first.
And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it according to the
manner.
And he brought the meat offering, and took a handful thereof, and
burnt it upon the altar, besides the burnt sacrifice of the morning.
¶ He slew also the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice of peace
offerings, which was for the people: and Aaron’s sons presented
unto him the blood, which he sprinkled upon the altar round
about,
and the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump, and that which
covereth the inwards, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver:
and they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fat upon the
altar:
and the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave
offering before the Lord; as Moses commanded.
¶ And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed
them; and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the
burnt offering, and peace offerings.
And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the
congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory
of the Lord appeared unto all the people.
And there came a fire out from before the Lord, and consumed
upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the
people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.

The Sin of Nadab and Abihu
And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his
censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered
strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.
And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and
they died before the Lord.
Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the Lord spake, saying,
I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the
people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.
¶ And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the
uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your
brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.
So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp;
as Moses had said.
And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar,
his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye
die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren,
the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the Lord hath
kindled.
And ye shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation, lest ye die: for the anointing oil of the Lord is upon
you. And they did according to the word of Moses.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Aaron, saying,
Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee,
when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it
shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:
and that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and
between unclean and clean;
and that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which
the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.
¶ And Moses spake unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto
Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meat offering that
1

249 Leviticus 11
remaineth of the offerings of the Lord made by fire, and eat it
without leaven beside the altar: for it is most holy.
And ye shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due, and thy
sons’ due, of the sacrifices of the Lord made by fire: for so I am
commanded.
And the wave breast and heave shoulder shall ye eat in a clean
place; thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee: for they be
thy due, and thy sons’ due, which are given out of the sacrifices of
peace offerings of the children of Israel.
The heave shoulder and the wave breast shall they bring with the
offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering
before the Lord; and it shall be thine, and thy sons’ with thee, by a
statute for ever; as the Lord hath commanded.
¶ And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and,
behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar,
the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,
Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place,
seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the iniquity
of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the
Lord?
Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: ye
should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.
And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered
their sin offering and their burnt offering before the Lord; and
such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering
today, should it have been accepted in the sight of the Lord?
And when Moses heard that, he was content.

Clean and Unclean Animals

Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is cloven-footed, and cheweth
the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat.
Nevertheless, these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of
them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the
cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the
hoof; he is unclean unto you.
And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the
hoof; he is unclean unto you.
And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be cloven-footed,
yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.
Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcass shall ye not touch;
they are unclean to you.
¶ These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath
fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them
shall ye eat.
And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of
all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the
waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
they shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of
their flesh, but ye shall have their carcasses in abomination.
Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an
abomination unto you.
¶ And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the
fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle,
and the ossifrage, and the ospray,
and the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
every raven after his kind;
and the owl, and the nighthawk, and the cuckoo, and the hawk
after his kind,
and the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,
and the swan, and the pelican, and the gier-eagle,
and the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the
bat.

Yet these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth upon
all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the
earth;
even these of them ye may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald
locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the
grasshopper after his kind.
But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an
abomination unto you.
¶ And for these ye shall be unclean: whosoever toucheth the carcass
of them shall be unclean until the even.
And whosoever beareth aught of the carcass of them shall wash his
clothes, and be unclean until the even.
The carcasses of every beast which divideth the hoof, and is not
cloven-footed, nor cheweth the cud, are unclean unto you: every
one that toucheth them shall be unclean.
And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts
that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth
their carcass shall be unclean until the even.
And he that beareth the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and
be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.
¶ These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things
that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the
tortoise after his kind,
and the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail,
and the mole.
These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth
touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.
And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it
shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or
skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it
must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it
shall be cleansed.

And every earthen vessel, whereinto any of them falleth,
whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.
Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water cometh
shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such
vessel shall be unclean.
And every thing whereupon any part of their carcass falleth shall be
unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken
down: for they are unclean, and shall be unclean unto you.
Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall
be clean: but that which toucheth their carcass shall be unclean.
And if any part of their carcass fall upon any sowing seed which is to
be sown, it shall be clean.
But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcass
fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.
¶ And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die; he that toucheth the
carcass thereof shall be unclean until the even.
And he that eateth of the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be
unclean until the even: he also that beareth the carcass of it shall
wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.
¶ And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth shall be an
abomination; it shall not be eaten.
Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all
four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that
creep upon the earth, them ye shall not eat; for they are an
abomination.
Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing
that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them,
that ye should be defiled thereby.
For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves,
and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves
with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to
be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

The Purification of Women after Childbirth
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have
conceived seed, and borne a man child, then she shall be unclean
seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity
shall she be unclean.
And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.
And she shall then 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.
But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as
in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her
purifying threescore and six days.
¶ And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for
a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt
offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering,
unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the
priest:
who shall offer it before the Lord, and make an atonement for
her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is
the law for her that hath borne a male or a female.
And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two
turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and
the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make an atonement
for her, and she shall be clean.

Laws concerning Leprosy
And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,
When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or
bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of
leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto
one of his sons the priests:
and the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and
when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight
be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the
priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.
If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be
not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white;
then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days:
and the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if the
plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread not in the
skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:
and the priest shall look on him again the seventh day: and,
behold, if the plague be somewhat dark, and the plague spread not
in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean: it is but a scab:
and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.
But if the scab spread much abroad in the skin, after that he hath
been seen of the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen of the
priest again:
and if the priest see that, behold, the scab spreadeth in the skin,
then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a leprosy.
¶ When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought
unto the priest;
and the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the rising be white in the
skin, and it have turned the hair white, and there be quick raw flesh
in the rising;
1

255 Leviticus 13
it is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall
pronounce him unclean, and shall not shut him up: for he is
unclean.
And if a leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the leprosy cover
all the skin of him that hath the plague from his head even to his
foot, wheresoever the priest looketh;
then the priest shall consider: and, behold, if the leprosy have
covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the
plague: it is all turned white: he is clean.
But when raw flesh appeareth in him, he shall be unclean.
And the priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him to be
unclean: for the raw flesh is unclean: it is a leprosy.
Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed unto white, he shall
come unto the priest;
and the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the plague be turned
into white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that hath the
plague: he is clean.
¶ The flesh also, in which, even in the skin thereof, was a boil, and
is healed,
and in the place of the boil there be a white rising, or a bright spot,
white, and somewhat reddish, and it be showed to the priest;
and if, when the priest seeth it, behold, it be in sight lower than the
skin, and the hair thereof be turned white; the priest shall
pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the
boil.
But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs
therein, and if it be not lower than the skin, but be somewhat dark;
then the priest shall shut him up seven days:
and if it spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall
pronounce him unclean: it is a plague.
But if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not, it is a burning
boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.
¶ Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is a hot burning,
and the quick flesh that burneth have a white bright spot, somewhat
reddish, or white;

then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the hair in the
bright spot be turned white, and it be in sight deeper than the skin;
it is a leprosy broken out of the burning: wherefore the priest shall
pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.
But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hair in the
bright spot, and it be no lower than the other skin, but be somewhat
dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:
and the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: and if it be
spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce
him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.
And if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not in the skin,
but it be somewhat dark; it is a rising of the burning, and the priest
shall pronounce him clean: for it is an inflammation of the
burning.
¶ If a man or woman have a plague upon the head or the beard;
then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be in sight
deeper than the skin, and there be in it a yellow thin hair; then the
priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry scall, even a leprosy
upon the head or beard.
And if the priest look on the plague of the scall, and, behold, it be
not in sight deeper than the skin, and that there is no black hair in
it; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague of the scall
seven days:
and in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague: and,
behold, if the scall spread not, and there be in it no yellow hair, and
the scall be not in sight deeper than the skin;
he shall be shaven, but the scall shall he not shave; and the priest
shall shut up him that hath the scall seven days more:
and in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall: and,
behold, if the scall be not spread in the skin, nor be in sight deeper
than the skin; then the priest shall pronounce him clean: and he
shall wash his clothes, and be clean.
But if the scall spread much in the skin after his cleansing;
then the priest shall look on him: and, behold, if the scall be spread
in the skin, the priest shall not seek for yellow hair; he is unclean.

But if the scall be in his sight at a stay, and that there is black hair
grown up therein; the scall is healed, he is clean: and the priest
shall pronounce him clean.
¶ If a man also or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright
spots, even white bright spots;
then the priest shall look: and, behold, if the bright spots in the
skin of their flesh be darkish white, it is a freckled spot that groweth
in the skin: he is clean.
¶ And the man whose hair is fallen off his head, he is bald; yet is he
clean.
And he that hath his hair fallen off from the part of his head toward
his face, he is forehead bald; yet is he clean.
And if there be in the bald head, or bald forehead, a white reddish
sore; it is a leprosy sprung up in his bald head, or his bald forehead.
Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the rising of the
sore be white reddish in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, as
the leprosy appeareth in the skin of the flesh;
he is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall pronounce him
utterly unclean; his plague is in his head.
¶ And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and
his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and
shall cry, Unclean, unclean.
All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled;
he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his
habitation be.
¶ The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it be a
woolen garment, or a linen garment;
whether it be in the warp, or woof, of linen, or of woolen; whether
in a skin, or in any thing made of skin;
and if the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the
skin, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin; it is
a plague of leprosy, and shall be showed unto the priest:
and the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up it that hath
the plague seven days:

and he shall look on the plague on the seventh day: if the plague be
spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in a
skin, or in any work that is made of skin; the plague is a fretting
leprosy; it is unclean.
He shall therefore burn that garment, whether warp or woof, in
woolen or in linen, or any thing of skin, wherein the plague is: for
it is a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the fire.
¶ And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not spread
in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing
of skin;
then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein the
plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more:
and the priest shall look on the plague, after that it is washed: and,
behold, if the plague have not changed his color, and the plague be
not spread, it is unclean; thou shalt burn it in the fire; it is fret
inward, whether it be bare within or without.
¶ And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague be somewhat dark
after the washing of it; then he shall rend it out of the garment, or
out of the skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof:
and if it appear still in the garment, either in the warp, or in the
woof, or in any thing of skin; it is a spreading plague: thou shalt
burn that wherein the plague is with fire.
And the garment, either warp, or woof, or whatsoever thing of skin
it be, which thou shalt wash, if the plague be departed from them,
then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean.
¶ This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woolen or
linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to
pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

259 Leviticus 14
and the priest shall go forth out of the camp; and the priest shall
look, and, behold, if the plague of leprosy be healed in the leper;
then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed
two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:
and the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an
earthen vessel over running water.
As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood, and the
scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in
the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water:
and he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the
leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let
the living bird loose into the open field.
And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off
all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean: and
after that he shall come into the camp, and shall tarry abroad out of
his tent seven days.
But it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair off
his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall
shave off: and he shall wash his clothes, also he shall wash his flesh
in water, and he shall be clean.
¶ And on the eighth day he shall take two he lambs without
blemish, and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish, and
three tenth deals of fine flour for a meat offering, mingled with oil,
and one log of oil:
and the priest that maketh him clean shall present the man that is
to be made clean, and those things, before the Lord, at the door of
the tabernacle of the congregation.
And the priest shall take one he lamb, and offer him for a trespass
offering, and the log of oil, and wave them for a wave offering
before the Lord:
and he shall slay the lamb in the place where he shall kill the sin
offering and the burnt offering, in the holy place: for as the sin
offering is the priest’s, so is the trespass offering: it is most holy:
and the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering,
and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is

great toe of his right foot.
And the priest shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it into the
palm of his own left hand:
and the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left
hand, and shall sprinkle of the oil with his finger seven times
before the Lord:
and of the rest of the oil that is in his hand shall the priest put upon
the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the
thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot,
upon the blood of the trespass offering:
and the remnant of the oil that is in the priest’s hand he shall pour
upon the head of him that is to be cleansed: and the priest shall
make an atonement for him before the Lord.
And the priest shall offer the sin offering, and make an atonement
for him that is to be cleansed from his uncleanness; and afterward
he shall kill the burnt offering:
and the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the meat offering
upon the altar: and the priest shall make an atonement for him,
and he shall be clean.
¶ And if he be poor, and cannot get so much; then he shall take one
lamb for a trespass offering to be waved, to make an atonement for
him, and one tenth deal of fine flour mingled with oil for a meat
offering, and a log of oil;
and two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, such as he is able to get;
and the one shall be a sin offering, and the other a burnt offering.
And he shall bring them on the eighth day for his cleansing unto
the priest, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,
before the Lord.
And the priest shall take the lamb of the trespass offering, and the
log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before
the Lord:
and he shall kill the lamb of the trespass offering, and the priest

hand:
and the priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil that
is in his left hand seven times before the Lord:
and the priest shall put of the oil that is in his hand upon the tip of
the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of
his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the
place of the blood of the trespass offering:
and the rest of the oil that is in the priest’s hand he shall put upon
the head of him that is to be cleansed, to make an atonement for
him before the Lord.
And he shall offer the one of the turtledoves, or of the young
pigeons, such as he can get;
even such as he is able to get, the one for a sin offering, and the other
for a burnt offering, with the meat offering: and the priest shall
make an atonement for him that is to be cleansed before the Lord.
This is the law of him in whom is the plague of leprosy, whose hand
is not able to get that which pertaineth to his cleansing.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
When ye be come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a
possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of
your possession;
and he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest, saying,
It seemeth to me there is as it were a plague in the house:
then the priest shall command that they empty the house, before
the priest go into it to see the plague, that all that is in the house be
not made unclean: and afterward the priest shall go in to see the
house:
and he shall look on the plague, and, behold, if the plague be in the
walls of the house with hollow streaks, greenish or reddish, which
in sight are lower than the wall;
then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house,
and shut up the house seven days:

and the priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall look:
and, behold, if the plague be spread in the walls of the house;
then the priest shall command that they take away the stones in
which the plague is, and they shall cast them into an unclean place
without the city:
and he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and
they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off without the city
into an unclean place:
and they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of those
stones; and he shall take other mortar, and shall plaster the house.
¶ And if the plague come again, and break out in the house, after
that he hath taken away the stones, and after he hath scraped the
house, and after it is plastered;
then the priest shall come and look, and, behold, if the plague be
spread in the house, it is a fretting leprosy in the house: it is
unclean.
And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber
thereof, and all the mortar of the house; and he shall carry them
forth out of the city into an unclean place.
Moreover, he that goeth into the house all the while that it is shut
up shall be unclean until the even.
And he that lieth in the house shall wash his clothes; and he that
eateth in the house shall wash his clothes.
¶ And if the priest shall come in, and look upon it, and, behold, the
plague hath not spread in the house, after the house was plastered;
then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the plague
is healed.
And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood,
and scarlet, and hyssop:
and he shall kill the one of the birds in an earthen vessel over
running water:
and he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet,
and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird, and
in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times:

wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet:
but he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open fields,
and make an atonement for the house: and it shall be clean.
¶ This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and scall,
and for the leprosy of a garment, and of a house,
and for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot:
to teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean: this is the law of
leprosy.

Unclean Discharges from the Body
And the Lord spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any
man hath a running issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he is
unclean.
And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his flesh run
with his issue, or his flesh be stopped from his issue, it is his
uncleanness.
Every bed, whereon he lieth that hath the issue, is unclean: and
every thing, whereon he sitteth, shall be unclean.
And whosoever toucheth his bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe
himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
And he that sitteth on any thing whereon he sat that hath the issue
shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean
until the even.
And he that toucheth the flesh of him that hath the issue shall wash
his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the
even.
And if he that hath the issue spit upon him that is clean; then he
shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean
until the even.

And whosoever toucheth any thing that was under him shall be
unclean until the even: and he that beareth any of those things shall
wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until
the even.
And whomsoever he toucheth that hath the issue, and hath not
rinsed his hands in water, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe
himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
And the vessel of earth, that he toucheth which hath the issue, shall
be broken: and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water.
¶ And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue, then he
shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his
clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean.
And on the eighth day he shall take to him two turtledoves, or two
young pigeons, and come before the Lord unto the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation, and give them unto the priest:
and the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin offering, and the
other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement
for him before the Lord for his issue.
¶ And if any man’s seed of copulation go out from him, then he
shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even.
And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of
copulation, shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the
even.
The woman also with whom man shall lie with seed of copulation,
they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the
even.
¶ And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood,
she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall
be unclean until the even.
And every thing that she lieth upon in her separation shall be
unclean: every thing also that she sitteth upon shall be unclean.
And whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe

he toucheth it, he shall be unclean until the even.
And if any man lie with her at all, and her flowers be upon him, he
shall be unclean seven days; and all the bed whereon he lieth shall
be unclean.
¶ And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days out of the
time of her separation, or if it run beyond the time of her
separation; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as
the days of her separation: she shall be unclean.
Every bed whereon she lieth all the days of her issue shall be unto
her as the bed of her separation: and whatsoever she sitteth upon
shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her separation.
And whosoever toucheth those things shall be unclean, and shall

before the Lord for the issue of her uncleanness.
¶ Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their
uncleanness; that they die not in their uncleanness, when they
defile my tabernacle that is among them.
¶ This is the law of him that hath an issue, and of him whose seed
goeth from him, and is defiled therewith;
and of her that is sick of her flowers, and of him that hath an issue,
of the man, and of the woman, and of him that lieth with her that
is unclean.

The Day of Atonement
And the Lord spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of
Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;
and the Lord said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that
he come not at all times into the holy place within the veil before
the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will
appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.
Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place; with a young bullock for
a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.
He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen
breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and
with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments;
therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.
And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two
kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering.
¶ And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which is for
himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house.
And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lord
at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord,
and the other lot for the scapegoat.
And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Lord’s lot fell, and
offer him for a sin offering.
But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be
presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him,
and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.
¶ And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for
himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his
house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for
himself:

267 Leviticus 16
and he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the
altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten
small, and bring it within the veil:
and he shall put the incense upon the fire before the Lord, that the
cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the
testimony, that he die not:
and he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with
his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat
shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.
¶ Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the
people, and bring his blood within the veil, and do with that blood
as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the
mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:
and he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the
uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their
transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle
of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of
their uncleanness.
And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation
when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he
come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his
household, and for all the congregation of Israel.
And he shall go out unto the altar that is before the Lord, and
make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood of the
bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of
the altar round about.
And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven
times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the
children of Israel.
¶ And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and
the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the
live goat:
and Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat,
and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and
all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head

of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into
the wilderness:
and the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not
inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.
¶ And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation,
and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he
went into the holy place, and shall leave them there:
and he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on
his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt offering, and the
burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself,
and for the people.
And the fat of the sin offering shall he burn upon the altar.
And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes,
and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.
And the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin
offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the
holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall
burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.
And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his
flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp.
¶ And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh
month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls,
and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a
stranger that sojourneth among you:
for on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to
cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the
Lord.
It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls,
by a statute for ever.
And the priest, whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall
consecrate to minister in the priest’s office in his father’s stead,
shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen clothes, even
the holy garments:
and he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and he
shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the congregation,

And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an
atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year.
And he did as the Lord commanded Moses.
17
One Place of Sacrifice
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the children of
Israel, and say unto them, This is the thing which the Lord hath
commanded, saying,
What man soever there be of the house of Israel, that killeth an ox,
or lamb, or goat, in the camp, or that killeth it out of the camp,
and bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation, to offer an offering unto the Lord before the
tabernacle of the Lord; blood shall be imputed unto that man; he
hath shed blood; and that man shall be cut off from among his
people:
to the end that the children of Israel may bring their sacrifices,
which they offer in the open field, even that they may bring them
unto the Lord, unto the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation, unto the priest, and offer them for peace offerings
unto the Lord.
And the priest shall sprinkle the blood upon the altar of the Lord
at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and burn the fat
for a sweet savor unto the Lord.
And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after
whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever
unto them throughout their generations.
¶ And thou shalt say unto them, Whatsoever man there be of the
house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among you, that
offereth a burnt offering or sacrifice,
34

and bringeth it not unto the door of the tabernacle of the

The Eating of Blood Forbidden
¶ And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the
strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of
blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood,
and will cut him off from among his people.
For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you
upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the
blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat
blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat
blood.
And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the
strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any
beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood
thereof, and cover it with dust.
¶ For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof:
therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of
no manner of flesh; for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof:
whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.
And every soul that eateth that which died of itself, or that which
was torn with beasts, whether it be one of your own country, or a
stranger, he shall both wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water,
and be unclean until the even: then shall he be clean.
But if he wash them not, nor bathe his flesh; then he shall bear his
iniquity.

Acts of Immorality Forbidden
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the
Lord your God.
After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not
do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you,
shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.
Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk
therein: I am the Lord your God.
Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a
man do, he shall live in them: I am the Lord.
¶ None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to
uncover their nakedness: I am the Lord.
The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt
thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her
nakedness.
The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy
father’s nakedness.
The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter
of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even
their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.
The nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or of thy daughter’s daughter,
even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own
nakedness.
The nakedness of thy father’s wife’s daughter, begotten of thy
father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s sister: she is
thy father’s near kinswoman.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister: for
she is thy mother’s near kinswoman.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s brother, thou
shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt.

Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter-in-law: she

Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother’s wife: it is thy
brother’s nakedness.
Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her
daughter, neither shalt thou take her son’s daughter, or her
daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her
near kinswomen: it is wickedness.
Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover
her nakedness, besides the other in her life time.
¶ Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her
nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.
Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbor’s wife, to
defile thyself with her.
And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to
Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the
Lord.
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is
abomination.
Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith:
neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it
is confusion.
¶ Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the
nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
and the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof
upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall
not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own
nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
(for all these abominations have the men of the land done, which
were before you, and the land is defiled;)
that the land spew not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spewed
out the nations that were before you.
For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the
souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

Laws of Holiness and Justice
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say
unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy.
Ye shall fear every man his mother, and his father, and keep my
sabbaths: I am the Lord your God.
Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am
the Lord your God.
¶ And if ye offer a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the Lord, ye
shall offer it at your own will.
It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if
aught remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire.
And if it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall
not be accepted.
Therefore every one that eateth it shall bear his iniquity, because he
hath profaned the hallowed thing of the Lord; and that soul shall
be cut off from among his people.
¶ And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly
reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings
of thy harvest.
And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather
every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and
stranger: I am the Lord your God.
¶ Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.
And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou
profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.

of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the
morning.
Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the
blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the Lord.
¶ Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment; thou shalt not
respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty:
but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbor.
Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people;
neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbor: I am the
Lord.
¶ Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any
wise rebuke thy neighbor, and not suffer sin upon him.
Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of
thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am the
Lord.
¶ Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender
with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed:
neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woolen come upon
thee.
¶ And whosoever lieth carnally with a woman, that is a bondmaid,
betrothed to a husband, and not at all redeemed, nor freedom given
her; she shall be scourged: they shall not be put to death, because
she was not free.
And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the Lord, unto the
door of the tabernacle of the congregation, even a ram for a trespass
offering.
And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of
the trespass offering before the Lord for his sin which he hath
done; and the sin which he hath done shall be forgiven him.
¶ And when ye shall come into the land, and shall have planted all
manner of trees for food, then ye shall count the fruit thereof as
uncircumcised: three years shall it be as uncircumcised unto you: it
shall not be eaten of.

¶ Ye shall not eat any thing with the blood: neither shall ye use
enchantment, nor observe times.
Ye shall not round the corners of your heads, neither shalt thou
mar the corners of thy beard.
Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print
any marks upon you: I am the Lord.
¶ Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest
the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.
Ye shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am the
Lord.
¶ Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after
wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.
¶ Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honor the face of
the old man, and fear thy God: I am the Lord.
¶ And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex
him.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one
born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were
strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.
¶ Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment, in meteyard, in
weight, or in measure.
Just balances, just weights, a just ephah, and a just hin, shall ye
have: I am the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land
of Egypt.
Therefore shall ye observe all my statutes, and all my judgments,
and do them: I am the Lord.

The Penalties for Acts of Immorality
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel, Whosoever he be of
the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that
giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death:
the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from
among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech,
to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the
man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not;
then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and
will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit
whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
¶ And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and
after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face
against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.
Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord
your God.
And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which
sanctify you.
For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely
put to death: he hath cursed his father or his mother; his blood shall
be upon him.
¶ And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife,
even he that committeth adultery with his neighbor’s wife, the
adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
And the man that lieth with his father’s wife hath uncovered his
father’s nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their
blood shall be upon them.

And if a man lie with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely
be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be
upon them.
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of
them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to
death; their blood shall be upon them.
And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they
shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no
wickedness among you.
And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death; and ye
shall slay the beast.
And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto,
thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to
death; their blood shall be upon them.
¶ And if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his
mother’s daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his
nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight
of their people: he hath uncovered his sister’s nakedness; he shall
bear his iniquity.
And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall
uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she
hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall
be cut off from among their people.
And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister,
nor of thy father’s sister; for he uncovereth his near kin: they shall
bear their iniquity.
And if a man shall lie with his uncle’s wife, he hath uncovered his
uncle’s nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless.
And if a man shall take his brother’s wife, it is an unclean thing: he
hath uncovered his brother’s nakedness; they shall be childless.
¶ Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and
do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spew
you not out.

am the Lord your God, which have separated you from other
people.
Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean,
and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your
souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living
thing that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from
you as unclean.
And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy, and have
severed you from other people, that ye should be mine.
¶ A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a
wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with
stones; their blood shall be upon them.

The Holiness of the Priests
And the Lord said unto Moses, Speak unto the priests the sons of
Aaron, and say unto them, There shall none be defiled for the dead
among his people:
but for his kin, that is near unto him, that is, for his mother, and for
his father, and for his son, and for his daughter, and for his brother,
and for his sister a virgin, that is nigh unto him, which hath had no
husband; for her may he be defiled.
But he shall not defile himself, being a chief man among his people,
to profane himself.
They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they
shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their
flesh.

They shall be holy unto their God, and not profane the name of
their God: for the offerings of the Lord made by fire, and the
bread of their God, they do offer: therefore they shall be holy.
They shall not take a wife that is a whore, or profane; neither shall
they take a woman put away from her husband: for he is holy unto
his God.
Thou shalt sanctify him therefore; for he offereth the bread of thy
God: he shall be holy unto thee: for I the Lord, which sanctify
you, am holy.
And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the
whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire.
¶ And he that is the high priest among his brethren, upon whose
head the anointing oil was poured, and that is consecrated to put
on the garments, shall not uncover his head, nor rend his clothes;
neither shall he go in to any dead body, nor defile himself for his
father, or for his mother;
neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary
of his God; for the crown of the anointing oil of his God is upon
him: I am the Lord.
And he shall take a wife in her virginity.
A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, or a harlot, these shall
he not take: but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife.
Neither shall he profane his seed among his people: for I the Lord
do sanctify him.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their
generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer
the bread of his God.
For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not
approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any
thing superfluous,
or a man that is broken-footed, or broken-handed,
or crookbacked, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be
scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;

He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the
holy.
Only he shall not go in unto the veil, nor come nigh unto the altar,
because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for
I the Lord do sanctify them.
And Moses told it unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the
children of Israel.
22
The Holiness of the Offerings
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, that they separate themselves
from the holy things of the children of Israel, and that they profane
not my holy name in those things which they hallow unto me: I am
the Lord.
Say unto them, Whosoever he be of all your seed among your
generations, that goeth unto the holy things, which the children of
Israel hallow unto the Lord, having his uncleanness upon him,
that soul shall be cut off from my presence: I am the Lord.
What man soever of the seed of Aaron is a leper, or hath a running
issue; he shall not eat of the holy things, until he be clean. And
whoso toucheth any thing that is unclean by the dead, or a man
whose seed goeth from him;
or whosoever toucheth any creeping thing, whereby he may be
made unclean, or a man of whom he may take uncleanness,
whatsoever uncleanness he hath;
the soul which hath touched any such shall be unclean until even,
and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he wash his flesh with
water.

defile himself therewith: I am the Lord.
They shall therefore keep mine ordinance, lest they bear sin for it,
and die therefore, if they profane it: I the Lord do sanctify them.
¶ There shall no stranger eat of the holy thing: a sojourner of the
priest, or a hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing.
But if the priest buy any soul with his money, he shall eat of it, and
he that is born in his house: they shall eat of his meat.
If the priest’s daughter also be married unto a stranger, she may not
eat of an offering of the holy things.
But if the priest’s daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no
child, and is returned unto her father’s house, as in her youth, she
shall eat of her father’s meat: but there shall no stranger eat
thereof.
And if a man eat of the holy thing unwittingly, then he shall put the
fifth part thereof unto it, and shall give it unto the priest with the
holy thing.
And they shall not profane the holy things of the children of Israel,
which they offer unto the Lord;
or suffer them to bear the iniquity of trespass, when they eat their
holy things: for I the Lord do sanctify them.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of
Israel, and say unto them, Whatsoever he be of the house of Israel,
or of the strangers in Israel, that will offer his oblation for all his
vows, and for all his freewill offerings, which they will offer unto
the Lord for a burnt offering;
ye shall offer at your own will a male without blemish, of the beeves,
of the sheep, or of the goats.
But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer: for it shall
not be acceptable for you.
And whosoever offereth a sacrifice of peace offerings unto the
Lord to accomplish his vow, or a freewill offering in beeves or

sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish
therein.
Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or
scabbed, ye shall not offer these unto the Lord, nor make an
offering by fire of them upon the altar unto the Lord.
Either a bullock or a lamb that hath any thing superfluous or
lacking in his parts, that mayest thou offer for a freewill offering;
but for a vow it shall not be accepted.
Ye shall not offer unto the Lord that which is bruised, or crushed,
or broken, or cut; neither shall ye make any offering thereof in your
land.
Neither from a stranger’s hand shall ye offer the bread of your God
of any of these; because their corruption is in them, and blemishes
be in them: they shall not be accepted for you.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
When a bullock, or a sheep, or a goat, is brought forth, then it shall
be seven days under the dam; and from the eighth day and
thenceforth it shall be accepted for an offering made by fire unto
the Lord.
And whether it be cow or ewe, ye shall not kill it and her young both
in one day.
And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the Lord,
offer it at your own will.
On the same day it shall be eaten up; ye shall leave none of it until
the morrow: I am the Lord.
¶ Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am
the Lord.
Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be hallowed
among the children of Israel: I am the Lord which hallow you,
that brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the
Lord.

The Appointed Feasts
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the
feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations,
even these are my feasts.
Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of
rest, a holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the
sabbath of the Lord in all your dwellings.
¶ These are the feasts of the Lord, even holy convocations, which
ye shall proclaim in their seasons.
In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord’s
passover.
And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of
unleavened bread unto the Lord: seven days ye must eat
unleavened bread.
In the first day ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do no
servile work therein.
But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord seven
days: in the seventh day is a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile
work therein.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be
come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the
harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your
harvest unto the priest:
and he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for
you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.
And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf a he lamb
without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the
Lord.
And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour
mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the Lord for a

sweet savor: and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the
fourth part of a hin.
And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears,
until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your
God: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all
your dwellings.
¶ And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath,
from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven
sabbaths shall be complete:
even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number
fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the Lord.
Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth
deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven;
they are the firstfruits unto the Lord.
And ye shall offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of
the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be
for a burnt offering unto the Lord, with their meat offering, and
their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of sweet savor
unto the Lord.
Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and
two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings.
And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits for a
wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs: they shall be
holy to the Lord for the priest.
And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be a holy
convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be
a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your
generations.
¶ And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make
clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest,
neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt
leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the Lord your
God.

285 Leviticus 23
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, in
the first day of the month, shall ye have a sabbath, a memorial of
blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation.
Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering
made by fire unto the Lord.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of
atonement: it shall be a holy convocation unto you; and ye shall
afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it is a day of
atonement, to make an atonement for you before the Lord your
God.
For whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day,
he shall be cut off from among his people.
And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the
same soul will I destroy from among his people.
Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever
throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls:
in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall
ye celebrate your sabbath.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this
seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto
the Lord.
On the first day shall be a holy convocation: ye shall do no servile
work therein.
Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord;
on the eighth day shall be a holy convocation unto you, and ye shall
offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: it is a solemn
assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.
¶ These are the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be
holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord,
a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink
offerings, every thing upon his day:

beside the sabbaths of the Lord, and beside your gifts, and beside
all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give
unto the Lord.
¶ Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have
gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the
Lord seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the
eighth day shall be a sabbath.
And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees,
branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows
of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven
days.
And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord seven days in the year: it
shall be a statute for ever in your generations; ye shall celebrate it in
the seventh month.
Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall
dwell in booths:
that your generations may know that I made the children of Israel
to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I
am the Lord your God.
¶ And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of the
Lord.

The Tending of the Lamp
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure oil
olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually.
Without the veil of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the
congregation, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the
morning before the Lord continually: it shall be a statute for ever
in your generations.
He shall order the lamps upon the pure candlestick before the
Lord continually.

The Showbread
¶ And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two
tenth deals shall be in one cake.
And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure
table before the Lord.
And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be
on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the
Lord.
Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the Lord continually,
being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant.
And it shall be Aaron’s and his sons’; and they shall eat it in the
holy place: for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the Lord
made by fire by a perpetual statute.
The Punishment for Blasphemy
¶ And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an
Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel: and this son of
the Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove together in the
camp;
and the Israelitish woman’s son blasphemed the name of the Lord,
and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother’s
name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:)
and they put him in ward, that the mind of the Lord might be
showed them.
¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that
heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the
congregation stone him.
And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying,
Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin.
And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be
put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as

And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death.
And he that killeth a beast shall make it good; beast for beast.
And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbor; as he hath done, so
shall it be done to him;
breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a
blemish in a man, so shall it be done to
