" 'But anyone who sins defiantly,1 whether native-born or alien,2 blasphemes the LORD,3 and that person must be cut off from his people.431
Because he has despised5 the LORD's word and broken his commands,6 that person must surely be cut off; his guilt remains on him.7' "
While the Israelites were in the desert,8 a man was found gathering wood on the Sabbath day.933
Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and the whole assembly,
and they kept him in custody, because it was not clear what should be done to him.1035
Then the LORD said to Moses, "The man must die.11 The whole assembly must stone him outside the camp.12"
So the assembly took him outside the camp and stoned him13 to death,14 as the LORD commanded Moses.15
