Lots of interesting laws in this chapter! I was disappointed not to include things like the law of gleaning or standing up to honour your elders.


All the laws recorded in chapter 19 fall under the opening law in V 2 Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them: “Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.

Leviticus 19 verses 9 and 10 are among my favorite verses in the bible for the key idea I feel they point to. So I was sorry it was not in your summary.
