Leviticus 21

Mea ano a Ihowa ki a Mohi, Korero ki nga tohunga, ki nga tama a Arona, mea atu ki a ratou, Kaua tetahi e whakapoke i a ia mo te tupapaku o tona iwi: Engari mo tona whanaunga, mo te mea e tata ana ki a ia, mo tona whaea, mo tona papa, mo tana tama, mo tana tamahine, mo tona tuakana, teina ranei, Mo tona tuahine hoki, ki te mea he wahine, he mea e tata ana ki a ia, a kahore ana tane: e ahei ana kia poke ia mona. Kaua ia, he ariki nei no tona iwi, e whakapoke i a ia kia noa. Kaua e whakatiwhaia o ratou matenga, kaua hoki e heua nga taha o o ratou pahau, kaua ano hoki e haea to ratou kikokiko. Kia tapu ratou ki to ratou Atua, kaua hoki e whakanoatia te ingoa o to ratou Atua: no te mea ko ratou hei whakahere i nga whakahere ahi a Ihowa, i te kai a to ratou Atua: mo reira kia tapu ratou. Kaua ratou e tango i te wahine kairau, i te mea noa ranei, hei wahine; kaua ano hoki ratou e tango i te wahine i whakarerea e tana tane: he tangata tapu hoki ia na tona Atua. Mo reira me whakatapu ia e koe, mana hoki e whakahere te kai a tou Atua: kia tapu ia ki a koe: he tapu hoki ahau, a Ihowa, tou kaiwhakatapu. Me te tamahine hoki a tetahi tohunga, ki te whakanoa ia i a ia, ki te kairau, kua whakanoatia e ia tona papa: me tahu ki te ahi.

10 Me te tino tohunga hoki i roto i ona teina, te tangata i ringihia nei tona matenga ki te hinu whakawahi, a i whakatohungatia hei kakahu i nga kakahu, kaua e tukua e ia ona makawe kia mahora noa, kaua ano hoki e haea ona kakahu; 11 Kaua hoki ia e haere atu ki tetahi tupapaku mate, kaua ano hoki ia e whakapoke i a ia mo tona papa, mo tona whaea ranei; 12 Kaua hoki ia e haere ki waho o te wahi tapu, kei noa i a ia te wahi tapu o tona Atua; kei runga hoki i a ia te karauna o te hinu whakawahi o tona Atua: ko Ihowa ahau. 13 Me tango ano hoki e ia he wahine i tona wahinetanga. 14 He pouaru, he wahine ranei i whakarerea, he wahine noa ranei, he wahine kairau ranei, kaua enei e tangohia e ia: engari me tango e ia he wahine i roto i tona iwi ake hei wahine. 15 Kaua hoki e whakanoatia e ia ona uri roto i tona iwi: ko Ihowa hoki ahau te whakatapu nei i a ia.

16 I korero ano a Ihowa ki a Mohi, i mea, 17 Korero ki a Arona, mea atu, Ki te mea he koha to tetahi o ou uri i o ratou whakatupuranga, kaua ia e whakatata mai ki te whakahere i te kai a tona Atua. 18 Kaua hoki e whakatata mai tetahi tangata he koha tona: te matapo, te kopa, te tangata he ihu parehe tona, i hira ake ranei tetahi wahi ona, 19 Te tangata ranei i whati te waewae, i whati ranei te ringa, 20 Te tuara piko ranei, te mea i puwhenua te tupu, ki te papahewa ranei tona kanohi, ki te mea ranei he papaka, he hakihaki ranei tona, ki te mea ranei kua komurumurua ona mea; 21 Kaua tetahi o nga uri o te tohunga, o Arona, ki te mea he koha tona, e whakatata mai ki te whakahere i nga whakahere ahi a Ihowa: he koha tona, kaua ia e whakatata ki te whakahere i te kai a tona Atua. 22 Me kai e ia te kai a tona Atua, te mea tapu rawa, me te mea tapu. 23 Otiia kaua ia e haere ki te arai, e whakatata ranei ki te aata; he koha hoki tona; kei noa i a ia oku wahi tapu: ko Ihowa hoki ahau te whakatapu nei i a ratou. 24 Ko nga korero enei a Mohi ki a Arona ratou ko ana tama, ki nga tama katoa ano hoki a Iharaira.
