New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 The LORD said to Moses, 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 "Command the people of Israel to provide you with pure olive oil for the lampstand, so it can be kept burning continually. 2 "Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning continually.
3 Aaron will set it up outside the inner curtain of the Most Holy Place in the Tabernacle and must arrange to have the lamps tended continually, from evening until morning, before the LORD. This is a permanent law for you, and it must be kept by all future generations. 3 Outside the curtain of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting, Aaron is to tend the lamps before the LORD from evening till morning, continually. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come.
4 The lamps on the pure gold lampstand must be tended continually in the LORD's presence." 4 The lamps on the pure gold lampstand before the LORD must be tended continually.
5 "You must bake twelve loaves of bread from choice flour, using three quarts of flour for each loaf. 5 "Take fine flour and bake twelve loaves of bread, using two-tenths of an ephah for each loaf.
6 Place the bread in the LORD's presence on the pure gold table, and arrange the loaves in two rows, with six in each row. 6 Set them in two rows, six in each row, on the table of pure gold before the LORD.
7 Sprinkle some pure frankincense near each row. It will serve as a token offering, to be burned in place of the bread as an offering given to the LORD by fire. 7 Along each row put some pure incense as a memorial portion to represent the bread and to be an offering made to the LORD by fire.
8 Every Sabbath day this bread must be laid out before the LORD on behalf of the Israelites as a continual part of the covenant. 8 This bread is to be set out before the LORD regularly, Sabbath after Sabbath, on behalf of the Israelites, as a lasting covenant.
9 The loaves of bread belong to Aaron and his male descendants, who must eat them in a sacred place, for they represent a most holy portion of the offerings given to the LORD by fire." 9 It belongs to Aaron and his sons, who are to eat it in a holy place, because it is a most holy part of their regular share of the offerings made to the LORD by fire."
10 One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father got into a fight with one of the Israelite men. 10 Now the son of an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father went out among the Israelites, and a fight broke out in the camp between him and an Israelite.
11 During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the LORD's name. So the man was brought to Moses for judgment. His mother's name was Shelomith. She was the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan. 11 The son of the Israelite woman blasphemed the Name with a curse; so they brought him to Moses. (His mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri the Danite.)
12 They put the man in custody until the LORD's will in the matter should become clear. 12 They put him in custody until the will of the LORD should be made clear to them.
13 Then the LORD said to Moses, 13 Then the LORD said to Moses:
14 "Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard him to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire community stone him to death. 14 "Take the blasphemer outside the camp. All those who heard him are to lay their hands on his head, and the entire assembly is to stone him.
15 Say to the people of Israel: Those who blaspheme God will suffer the consequences of their guilt and be punished. 15 Say to the Israelites: 'If anyone curses his God, he will be held responsible;
16 Anyone who blasphemes the LORD's name must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the LORD's name will surely die." 16 anyone who blasphemes the name of the LORD must be put to death. The entire assembly must stone him. Whether an alien or native-born, when he blasphemes the Name, he must be put to death.
17 "Anyone who takes another person's life must be put to death." 17 " 'If anyone takes the life of a human being, he must be put to death.
18 "Anyone who kills another person's animal must pay it back in full -- a live animal for the animal that was killed." 18 Anyone who takes the life of someone's animal must make restitution--life for life.
19 "Anyone who injures another person must be dealt with according to the injury inflicted -- 19 If anyone injures his neighbor, whatever he has done must be done to him:
20 fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. Whatever anyone does to hurt another person must be paid back in kind." 20 fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. As he has injured the other, so he is to be injured.
21 "Whoever kills an animal must make full restitution, but whoever kills another person must be put to death." 21 Whoever kills an animal must make restitution, but whoever kills a man must be put to death.
22 "These same regulations apply to Israelites by birth and foreigners who live among you. I, the LORD, am your God." 22 You are to have the same law for the alien and the native-born. I am the LORD your God.' "
23 After Moses gave all these instructions to the Israelites, they led the blasphemer outside the camp and stoned him to death, just as the LORD had commanded Moses. 23 Then Moses spoke to the Israelites, and they took the blasphemer outside the camp and stoned him. The Israelites did as the LORD commanded Moses.
