24 The Lord spoke to Moses: 2 “Command the Israelites to bring you pure oil from crushed olives for the light, in order to keep the lamp burning regularly.g 3 Aaron is to tend it continually from evening until morning before the Lord outside the curtainh of the testimonyi in the tent of meeting. This is a permanent statute throughout your generations. 4 He must continually tend the lamps on the pure gold lampstand in the Lord’s presence.j
5 “Take fine flour and bake it into twelve loaves;k each loaf is to be made with four quarts.A 6 Arrange them in two rows, six to a row, on the pure gold tablel before the Lord. 7 Place pure frankincensem near each row, so that it may serve as a memorial portionn for the bread and a food offeringo to the Lord. 8 The bread is to be set out before the Lord every Sabbath day as a permanent covenantp obligation on the part of the Israelites. 9 It belongs to Aaron and his sons, who are to eat it in a holy place, for it is the holiest portion for him from the food offerings to the Lord; this is a permanent rule.”
10 Now the son of an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father wasB among the Israelites. A fight broke out in the camp between the Israelite woman’s son and an Israelite man. 11 Her son cursed and blasphemed the Name,q and they brought him to Moses. (His mother’s name was Shelomith, a daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan.r) 12 They put him in custodys until the Lord’s decisiont could be made clear to them.
13 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 14 “Bring the one who has cursed to the outside of the camp and have all who heard him lay their hands on his head; then have the whole community stone him.u 15 And tell the Israelites: If anyone curses his God, he will bear the consequences of his sin. 16 Whoever blasphemes the name of the Lord must be put to death;v the whole community is to stone him. If he blasphemes the Name, he is to be put to death, whether the resident alien or the native.
17 “If a man kills anyone, he must be put to death.w 18 Whoever kills an animal is to make restitution for it, life for life. 19 If any man inflicts a permanent injury on his neighbor, whatever he has done is to be done to him: 20 fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. Whatever injury he inflicted on the person, the same is to be inflicted on him.x 21 Whoever kills an animal is to make restitution for it, but whoever kills a person is to be put to death.y 22 You are to have the same law for the resident alien and the native, because I am the Lord your God.”
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
