¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses saying: command the children of Israel that they bring unto thee, pure oil olive beaten for lights to pour into the lamps always, without the vail of testimony within the tabernacle of witness. And Aaron shall dress them both evening and morning before the LORD always. And if shall be a law for ever among your children after you. And he shall dress the lamps upon the pure candlestick before the LORD perpetually. And thou shalt take fine flour and bake twelve wastels thereof, two tenth deals shall every wastel be. And make two rows of them, six on a row upon the pure table before the LORD, and put pure frankincense upon the rows. And it shall be bread of remembrance, and an offering to the LORD. Every Sabbath he shall put them in rows before the LORD evermore, given of the children of Israel, that it be an everlasting covenant. And they shall be Aaron's and his sons, and they shall eat them in the holy place. For they are most holy unto him of the offerings of the LORD, and shall be a duty for ever.
¶ And the son of an Israelitish wife whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel. And this son of the Israelitish wife and a man of Israel, strove together in the host. And the Israelitish woman's son blasphemed the name and cursed, and they brought him unto Moses. And his mother's name was Selamith, the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan: and they put him in ward, that Moses should declare unto them what the LORD said thereto. And the LORD spake unto Moses saying, bring him that cursed without the host, and let all that heard him, put their hands upon his head, and let all the multitude stone him. And speak unto the children of Israel saying: Whosoever curseth his God, shall bear his sin: And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, shall die for it: all the multitude shall stone him to death. And the stranger as well as the Israelite if he curse the name, shall die for it. He that killeth any man, shall die for it, but he that killeth a beast shall pay for it, beast for beast. If a man maim his neighbour, as he hath done, so shall it be done to him again: broke for broke, eye for eye and tooth for tooth: even as he hath maimed a man, so shall he be maimed again. So now he that killeth a beast, shall pay for it: but he that killeth a man, shall die for it. Ye shall have one manner of law among you: even for the stranger as well as for one of your selves, for I am the LORD your God. And Moses told the children of Israel, that they should bring him that had cursed, out of the host, and stone him with stones. And the children of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses.
