1 WHEN the LORD spoke to Moses he said: 2Order the Israelites to bring pure oil of pounded olives ready for the regular mounting of the lamp 3outside the curtain of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting. Aaron must keep the lamp in trim regularly from dusk to dawn before the LORD: this is a rule binding on your descendants for all time. 4The lamps on the lampstand, ritually clean, must be regularly kept trimmed by him before the LORD.

5You are to take flour and bake it into twelve loaves, two tenths of an ephah to each. 6Arrange them in two rows, six to a row on the table, ritually clean, before the LORD. 7Sprinkle pure frankincense on the rows, and this will be a token of the bread, offered to the LORD as a food-offering. 8Regularly, sabbath after sabbath, it is to be arranged before the LORD as a gift from the Israelites. This is a covenant for ever; 9it is the privilege of Aaron and his sons, and they are to eat the bread in a holy place, because it is the holiest of holy-gifts. It is his due out of the food-offerings of the LORD for all time.

1011 IN the Israelite camp there was a certain man whose mother was an Israelite and his father an Egyptian; his mother's name was Shelomith daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan. He went out and, becoming involved in a brawl with an Israelite of pure descent, he uttered the holy name in blasphemy. He was brought to Moses, 12and put in custody until the LORD's will should be made clear to them.

13When the LORD spoke to Moses he said: 14The man who blasphemed is to be taken outside the camp, and let everyone who heard him lay a hand on his head, and let the whole community stone him to death. 15Say to the Israelites: When anyone, whoever he is, blasphemes his God, he must accept responsibility for his sin. 16Whoever utters the name of the LORD must be put to death. The whole community must stone him; whether alien or native, if he utters the name, he must be put to death.

17If one person strikes another and kills him, he must be put to death. 18Whoever strikes an animal and kills it is to make restitution, life for life. 19If anyone injures and disfigures a fellow-countryman, it must be done to him as he has done: 20fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; the injury and disfigurement that he has inflicted on another must in turn be inflicted on him.

21Whoever strikes and kills an animal is to make restitution, but whoever strikes a man and kills him must be put to death. 22You must have one and the same law for resident alien and native Israelite. For I am the LORD your God.

23Moses spoke thus to the Israelites, and they took the man who had blasphemed out of the camp and stoned him to death. The Israelites did as the LORD had commanded Moses.
