Leviticus 19:33-20:7

33 “‘If a foreigner stays with you in your land, do not do him wrong. 

34 Rather, treat the foreigner staying with you like the native-born among you — you are to love him as yourself, for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt; I am Adonai your God.

35 “‘Don’t be dishonest when measuring length, weight or capacity. 

36 Rather, use an honest balance-scale, honest weights, an honest bushel dry-measure and an honest gallon liquid-measure; I am Adonai your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. 

37 Observe all my regulations and rulings, and do them; I am Adonai.’”

Adonai said to Moshe,

“Say to the people of Isra’el, ‘If someone from the people of Isra’el or one of the foreigners living in Isra’el sacrifices one of his children to Molekh, he must be put to death; the people of the land are to stone him to death. 

I too will set myself against him and cut him off from his people, because he has sacrificed his child to Molekh, defiling my sanctuary and profaning my holy name. 

If the people of the land look the other way when that man sacrifices his child to Molekh and fail to put him to death, 

then I will set myself against him, his family and everyone who follows him to go fornicating after Molekh, and cut them off from their people.

“‘The person who turns to spirit-mediums and sorcerers to go fornicating after them — I will set myself against him and cut him off from his people. 

Therefore consecrate yourselves — you people must be holy, because I am Adonai your God.

 

1 Peter 1:13-21

13 Therefore, get your minds ready for work, keep yourselves under control, and fix your hopes fully on the gift you will receive when Yeshua the Messiah is revealed. 

14 As people who obey God, do not let yourselves be shaped by the evil desires you used to have when you were still ignorant. 

15 On the contrary, following the Holy One who called you, become holy yourselves in your entire way of life; 

16 since the Tanakh says,

“You are to be holy because I am holy.”

17 Also, if you are addressing as Father the one who judges impartially according to each person’s actions, you should live out your temporary stay on earth in fear. 

18 You should be aware that the ransom paid to free you from the worthless way of life which your fathers passed on to you did not consist of anything perishable like silver or gold; 

19 on the contrary, it was the costly bloody sacrificial death of the Messiah, as of a lamb without defect or spot. 

20 God knew him before the founding of the universe, but revealed him in the acharit-hayamim for your sakes. 

21 Through him you trust in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory; so that your trust and hope are in God.
