YOḆELIM 50 (Jubilees 50)

1 And after this Law I made known to you the days of the Shabbathoth in the wilderness of Sin, which is between Ĕlim and Sinai.

2 And I told you of the Shabbathoth of the land on Mount Sinai, and I told you of the Yoḇĕl years in the Shabbathoth of years: but the year thereof I have not told you till you enter the land which you are to possess.

3 And the land also shall keep its Shabbathoth while they dwell upon it, and they shall know the Yoḇĕl year.

4 Therefore I have ordained for you the yearly Shabbathoth and the years and the Yoḇelim: there are forty-nine Yoḇelim from the days of Aḏam until this day, and one week and two years, and there are still forty years to come for learning the Commands of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, until they pass over into the land of Kena’an, crossing the Yardĕn to the west.

5 And the Yoḇelim shall pass by, until Yisra’ĕl is cleansed from all guilt of whoring, and uncleanness, and defilement, and sin, and straying, and dwell with confidence in all the land. And there shall no longer be an adversary or any evil one, and the land shall be clean from that time, forever.

6 And see, the Command regarding the Shabbathoth, I have written down for you and all the Right-Rulings of its Laws.

7 Six days you shall labour, but on the seventh day is the Shabbath of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim. In it you shall do no manner of work, you and your sons, and your male servants and your female servants, and all your cattle and the sojourner also who is with you.

8 And the man that does any work on it shall die. Whoever profanes that day, whoever lies with his wife or whoever says he shall do whatever on it – that he shall depart on a journey thereon in regard to any buying or selling – and whoever draws water thereon which he had not prepared for himself on the sixth day, and whoever takes up any burden to carry it out of his tent or out of his house shall die.

9 You shall do no work whatever on the Shabbath day except what you have prepared for yourselves on the sixth day, so as to eat, and drink, and rest, and guard the Shabbath from all work on that day, and to baraḵ 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Elohim, who has given you a day of Festival, and a qodesh day, and a day of the qodesh reign for all Yisra’ĕl is this day among their days forever.

10 For great is the honour which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has given to Yisra’ĕl that they should eat and drink and be satisfied on this Festival day, and rest thereon from all labour which belongs to the labour of the children of men, except burning frankincense and bringing offerings and slaughterings before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 for days and for Shabbathoth.

11 This work alone shall be done on the Shabbath-days in the Miqdash of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, your Elohim; that they may atone for Yisra’ĕl with offering continually from day to day for a memorial well-pleasing before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and that He may receive them always from day to day accordingly as you have been commanded.

12 And every man who does any work thereon, or goes a journey, or tills his field, whether in his house or any other place, and whoever lights a fire, or rides on any beast, or travels by ship on the sea, and whoever smites or kills whatever, or slaughters a beast or a bird, or whoever catches an animal or a bird or a fish, or whoever fasts or goes to battle on the Shabbathoth:

13 The man who does any of these matters on the Shabbath shall die, so that the children of Yisra’ĕl shall observe the Shabbathoth according to the Commands regarding the Shabbathoth of the land, as it is written in the tablets, which He gave into my hands that I should write out for you the laws of the seasons, and the seasons according to the division of their days. Thus is completed the account of the division of the days.
