Sabbath-breaking Punished

32 Now while the sons of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man agathering wood on the sabbath day.

33 Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and to all the congregation;

34 and they put him in 1custody abecause it had not been 2declared what should be done to him.

35 Then the Lord said to Moses, “The man shall surely be put to death; aall the congregation shall stone him with stones outside the camp.”

36 So all the congregation brought him outside the camp and stoned him 1to death with stones, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
