Bible: Lev 11:44, 45; 19:2; 20:7, 26; 21:6
11:44 for I am the
Lord your God and you are to sanctify yourselves and be holy because I am holy. You must not defile yourselves by any of the swarming things that creep on the ground, 11:45 for I am the Lord who brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God, 1 and you are to be holy because I am holy.
19:2 He said, “Here, my lords, please turn aside to your servant’s house. Stay the night 1 and wash your feet. Then you can be on your way early in the morning.” 2 “No,” they replied, “we’ll spend the night in the town square.” 3
20:7 But now give back the man’s wife. Indeed 1 he is a prophet 2 and he will pray for you; thus you will live. 3 But if you don’t give her back, 4 know that you will surely die 5 along with all who belong to you.”
