The Penalty for Blasphemy

15 “Then you shall speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Whoever curses his God oshall 4bear his sin. 16 And whoever pblasphemes the name of the Lord shall surely be put to death. All the congregation shall certainly stone him, the stranger as well as him who is born in the land. When he blasphemes the name of the Lord, he shall be put to death.
