Leviticus 24

The Lamp and the Bread of the Sanctuary

1Then the  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2Command the sons of Israel that they bring to you a  clear oil from beaten olives for the
Or luminary
light, to make a lamp
Lit ascend
burn continually.
3Outside the veil of testimony in the tent of meeting, Aaron shall keep it in order from evening to morning before the  Lord continually; it shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations. 4He shall keep the lamps in order on the d  pure gold lampstand before the  Lord continually.

5 e  Then you shall take fine flour and bake twelve cakes with it; two-tenths of an ephah shall be in each cake. 6You shall set them in two rows, six to a row, on the f  pure gold table before the  Lord. 7You shall put pure frankincense on each row that it may be g  a memorial portion for the bread, even an offering by fire to the  Lord. 8 h  Every sabbath day he shall set it in order before the  Lord i  continually; it is an everlasting covenant
Lit from
for the sons of Israel.
9 k  It shall be for Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in a holy place; for it is most holy to him from the  Lord’s offerings by fire, his portion forever.”

10Now the son of an Israelite woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the sons of Israel; and the Israelite woman’s son and a man of Israel struggled with each other in the camp. 11The son of the Israelite woman blasphemed the l  Name and cursed. So they brought him to Moses. (Now his mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.) 12They put him in
Or prison
Lit to declare distinctly to them according to the mouth of the  Lord
so that o  the command of the  Lord might be made clear to them.

13Then the  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 14Bring the one who has cursed outside the camp, and let all who heard him p  lay their hands on his head; then q  let all the congregation stone him. 15You shall speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘ r  If anyone curses his God, then he will bear his sin. 16‘Moreover, the one who s  blasphemes the name of the  Lord shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall certainly stone him. The alien as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death.

“An Eye for an Eye”

17t  If a man
Lit smites
takes the life of any human being, he shall surely be put to death.
18v  The one who
Lit smites
takes the life of an animal shall make it good, life for life.
19If a man
Lit gives a blemish
injures his neighbor, just as he has done, so it shall be done to him:
20 y  fracture for fracture z  eye for eye, tooth for tooth; just as he has
Lit given a blemish
injured a man, so it shall be
Lit given
inflicted on him.
21‘Thus the one who
Lit smites
kills an animal shall make it good, but ad  the one who
Lit smites
kills a man shall be put to death.
22‘There shall be af  one
Lit judgment
standard for you; it shall be for the stranger as well as the native, for I am the  Lord your God.’”
23Then Moses spoke to the sons of Israel, and they brought the one who had cursed outside the camp and stoned him with stones. Thus the sons of Israel did, just as the  Lord had commanded Moses.
