The oil for the lamps. The shewbread. Shelomith's son blasphemeth; his sentence; and the law of blasphemy. The law of murder: of damage. The blasphemer is stoned.
1 AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Command the children of Israel, that they abring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, 1to cause the lamps to burn continually.
3 *Without bthe *vail of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the congregation, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning before the LORD continually: cit shall be a statute for ever in your generations.
4 He shall order the lamps upon dthe pure candlestick before the LORD continually.
5 ¶And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake etwelve cakes thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake.
6 And thou shalt fset them in two rows, six on a row, upon the gpure table before the LORD.
7 And thou shalt put hpure *frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the bread ifor a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
8 Every sabbath he shall jset it in order before the LORD continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant.
9 And kit shall be Aaron's and his sons'; and they shall eat it in the holy place: for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the LORD made by fire by a perpetual statute.
10 ¶And the son of an Israelitish woman, lwhose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel: and this son of the Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp;
11 And the Israelitish woman's son mblasphemed the name of the LORD, and cursed. And they nbrought him unto Moses: (and his mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:)
12 And they oput him *in ward, 2that the mind of the LORD might be shewed them.
13 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
14 Bring forth him that hath cursed p*without the camp; and let all that heard him qlay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation rstone him.
15 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, sWhosoever curseth his God tshall bear his sin.
16 And he that ublasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the LORD, shall be put to death.
17 ¶And vhe that 3killeth any man shall surely be put to death.
18 And he that wkilleth a beast shall make it good; 4beast for beast.
19 And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbour; as xhe hath done, so shall it be done to him;
20 Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again.
21 yAnd he that killeth a beast, he shall restore it: zand he that killeth a man, he shall be put to death.
22 Ye shall have aone *manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for bI am the LORD your God.
