YOḆELIM 15 (Jubilees 15)

1 And in the fifth year of the fourth week of this Yoḇĕl, in the third month, in the middle of the month, Aḇram celebrated the Festival of the First-Fruits of the grain harvest.

2 And he offered new offerings on the altar, the first-fruits of the produce to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: a heifer and a goat and a sheep on the altar as a burnt offering to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; their grain offerings and their drink offerings he offered on the altar with frankincense.

3 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 appeared to Aḇram, and said to him, “I am Ĕl Shaddai – approve yourself before Me and be perfect.

4 “And I shall make My Covenant between Me and you, and I shall multiply you exceedingly.”

5 And Aḇram fell on his face, and Elohim spoke with him, and said,

6 “See, My Law is with you, and you shall be the father of many nations.

7 “No longer shall your name be called Aḇram, but your name from this time, even forever, shall be Aḇraham, for I have made you the father of many nations.

8 “And I shall make you very great, and I shall make you into nations, and sovereigns shall come forth from you.

9 “And I shall establish My Covenant between Me and you, and your seed after you, throughout their generations, for an everlasting Covenant, so that I may be Elohim to you, and to your seed after you,

10 to give to you the land where you have been a sojourner – the land of Kena’an – that you may possess it forever, and I shall be their Elohim.”

11 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to Aḇraham, “And as for you, you shall keep My Covenant, you and your seed after you, and circumcise every male among you, and circumcise your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of an everlasting Covenant between Me and you.

12 “And the child on the eighth day you shall circumcise. Every male throughout your generations, he that is born in the house, or whom you have bought with silver from any stranger, whom you have acquired who is not of your seed.

13 “He that is born in your house shall surely be circumcised, and those whom you have bought with silver shall be circumcised, and My Covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting Law.

14 “And the uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin on the eighth day, that being shall be cut off from his people, for he has broken My Covenant.”

15 And Elohim said to Aḇraham, “As for Sarai your wife, her name shall no longer be called Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.

16 “And I shall baraḵ her, and give you a son by her, and I shall baraḵ him, and he shall become a nation, and sovereigns of nations shall proceed from him.”

17 And Aḇraham fell on his face, and rejoiced, and said in his heart, “Shall a son be born to him that is a hundred years old, and shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bring forth?”

18 And Aḇraham said to Elohim, “Oh, let Yishma’ĕl live before you!”

19 And Elohim said, “Yes, but Sarah shall also bear you a son, and you shall call his name Yitsḥaq, and I shall establish My Covenant with him, an everlasting Covenant, and for his seed after him.

20 “And as for Yishma’ĕl I have also heard you, and see, I shall baraḵ him, and make him great, and multiply him exceedingly, and he shall bring forth twelve princes, and I shall make him a great nation.

21 “But My Covenant I shall establish with Yitsḥaq, whom Sarah shall bear to you, in these days, in the next year.”

22 And He left off speaking with him, and Elohim went up from Aḇraham.

23 And Aḇraham did accordingly, as Elohim had said to him, and he took Yishma’ĕl his son, and all that were born in his house, and whom he had bought with his silver, every male in his house, and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin.

24 And on the same day, Aḇraham was circumcised, and all the men of his house, and all those, whom he had bought with silver from the children of the stranger, were circumcised with him.

25 This Law is for all the generations forever, and there is no circumcision of the days, and no omission of one day out of the eight days; for it is an everlasting Law, ordained and written on the tablets of the shamayim.

26 And every one that is born, the flesh of whose foreskin is not circumcised on the eighth day, does not belong to the children of the Covenant which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 made with Aḇraham, but to the children of destruction; nor is there, moreover, any sign on him that he is of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, but to be destroyed and slain from the earth, and to be rooted out of the earth, for he has broken the Covenant of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Elohim.

27 For all the messengers of the presence and all the messengers of qodeshah have been so created from the day of their creation, and before the messengers of the presence and the messengers of qodeshah He has qadosh Yisra’ĕl, that they should be with Him and with His qodesh messengers.

28 And you shall command the children of Yisra’ĕl and let them observe the sign of this Covenant for their generations as an everlasting Law, and they shall not be rooted out of the land.

29 For the Command is ordained for a Covenant, that they should observe it forever among all the children of Yisra’ĕl.

30 For Yishma’ĕl and his sons and his brothers and Ĕsaw, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 did not cause to approach Him, and He did not choose them because they are the children of Aḇraham, because He knew them, but He chose Yisra’ĕl to be His people.

31 And He qadosh them, and gathered them from among all the children of men; for there are many nations and many peoples, and all are His, and over all He has placed spirits in authority to lead them astray from Him.

32 But over Yisra’ĕl He did not appoint any messenger or Ruaḥ, for He alone is their Ruler, and He shall preserve them and require them at the hand of His messengers and His Ruaḥoth, and at the hand of all His powers in order that He may preserve them and baraḵ them, and that they may be His and He may be theirs from this time and forever.

33 And now I announce to you that the children of Yisra’ĕl shall not keep true to this Law, and they shall not circumcise their sons according to all this Torah; for in the flesh of their circumcision they shall omit this circumcision of their sons, and all of them, sons of Beliya’al, shall leave their sons uncircumcised as they were born.

34 And there shall be great wrath from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 against the children of Yisra’ĕl, because they have forsaken His Covenant and turned aside from His Word, and provoked and blasphemed, inasmuch as they do not observe the Law of this Torah; for they have treated their members like the gentiles, so that they may be removed and rooted out of the land. And there shall no more be pardon or forgiveness to them for all the sin of this straying forever.
