The Sanctuary’s Lamp and Bread

1 Thena Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "Command the {Israelites}b thatc they should bring pure olive oil [from] beaten [olives] for the light to {present}d a lamp continually. 3 Aaron shall arrange for it {outside}e the curtain of the testimony in [the] tent of assembly from evening until morning {before}f Yahweh continually; [it shall be] a {lasting statute}g throughout your generations. 4 On the pure [golden]h lampstand he shall arrange for the lamps {before}i Yahweh continually. 5 "And you shall take finely milled flour, and you shall bake [with] it twelve ring-shaped bread cakes: each one [shall be] two-tenths [of an ephah]. 6 And you shall place them [in] two rows, six [to the] row, on the pure [gold]j table {before}k Yahweh. 7 And you shall put pure frankincense on eachl row so thatm it shall be for the bread as a memorial offering, an offering made by fire for Yahweh. 8 {On every Sabbath}n he shall arrange it in rows {before}o Yahweh continually; [they are] from the {Israelites}p [as] an everlastingq covenant. 9 And it shall be for Aaron and for his sons, and they shall eat it in a holy place, because it [is] {a most holy thing}r for him from Yahweh's offerings made by fire--a {lasting rule}."s

Punishment for Blasphemy

10 And an Israelite woman's son, and he [was] an Egyptian man's son, went out in the midst of the {Israelites};t and the Israelite woman's son and anu Israelite man fought in the camp. 11 Thenv the Israelite woman's son blasphemed the name, and he cursed, sow they brought him to Moses--and the name of his mother [was] Shelomith the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan. 12 Thenx they put him in custody {so that}y [the matter] might be made clear to them in accordance with the mouth of Yahweh. 13 Thenz Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 14 "Bring the curser {outside the camp},aa and all the hearers shall place their hands on his head, and the whole community shall stone him. 15 And you shall speak to the {Israelites},bb saying, '{Any man}cc when he curses his God shall beardd his sin. 16 And he who blasphemes Yahweh's name certainly shall be put to death; the whole community certainly shall stone him. As the alien, so the native shall be put to death at blaspheming his name. 17 " 'And when a man kills any human being, he certainly shall be put to death. 18 And {he who kills}ee a domestic animal must repay [for] it life in place of life. 19 And when a man {causes}ff a physical defect in his fellow citizen {according to}gg what he has done, so it shall be done to him: 20 fracture in place of fracture, eye in place of eye, tooth in place of tooth--{according to}hh [the] physical defect he {causes}ii to the person, likewise it shall be {caused}jj to him. 21 And a killer of a domestic animal must repay [for] it, and a killer of a human shall be put to death. 22 {You must have}kk one norm; as [for] the alien, soll it must be [for] the native, because I [am] Yahweh your God.'" 23 Thusmm Moses spoke to the {Israelites},nn and they brought the curser {outside the camp},oo and they stoned him [with] stones, and the {Israelites}pp did [just] as Yahweh had commanded Moses.
