24 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 a“Command the children of Israel that they bring to you pure oil of pressed olives for the light, to make the lamps burn continually. 3 Outside the veil of the Testimony, in the tabernacle of meeting, Aaron shall be in charge of it from evening until morning before the Lord continually; it shall be a statute forever in your generations. 4 He shall 1be in charge of the lamps on bthe pure gold lampstand before the Lord continually.
5 “And you shall take fine flour and bake twelve ccakes with it. Two-tenths of an ephah shall be in each cake. 6 You shall set them in two rows, six in a row, don the pure gold table before the Lord. 7 And you shall put pure frankincense on each row, that it may be on the bread for a ememorial, an offering made by fire to the Lord. 8 fEvery Sabbath he shall set it in order before the Lord continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant. 9 And git shall be for Aaron and his sons, hand they shall eat it in a holy place; for it is most holy to him from the offerings of the Lord made by fire, by a perpetual statute.”
10 Now the son of an Israelite woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel; and this Israelite woman’s son and a man of Israel fought each other in the camp. 11 And the Israelite woman’s son iblasphemed the name of the Lord and jcursed; and so they kbrought him to Moses. (His mother’s name was Shelomith the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.) 12 Then they lput him 2in custody, mthat 3the mind of the Lord might be shown to them.
13 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 14 “Take outside the camp him who has cursed; then let all who heard him nlay their hands on his head, and let all the congregation stone him.
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.
19 ‘If a man causes disfigurement of his neighbor, as she has done, so shall it be done to him—20 fracture for tfracture, ueye for eye, tooth for tooth; as he has caused disfigurement of a man, so shall it be done to him. 21 And whoever kills an animal shall restore it; but whoever kills a man shall be put to death. 22 You shall have vthe 5same law for the stranger and for one from your own country; for I am the Lord your God.’ ”
