English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 "Command the people of Israel to bring you pure oil from beaten olives for the lamp, that a light may be kept burning regularly. 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 Outside the veil of the testimony, in the tent of meeting, Aaron shall arrange it from evening to morning before the LORD regularly. It shall be a statute forever throughout your 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 He shall arrange the lamps on the lampstand of pure gold before the LORD regularly. 4 The lamps on the pure gold lampstand before the LORD must be tended continually.
5 "You shall take fine flour and bake twelve loaves from it; two tenths of an ephah shall be in each loaf. 5 "Take fine flour and bake twelve loaves of bread, using two-tenths of an ephah for each loaf.
6 And you shall set them in two piles, six in a pile, on the table of pure gold before the LORD. 6 Set them in two rows, six in each row, on the table of pure gold before the LORD.
7 And you shall put pure frankincense on each pile, that it may go with the bread as a memorial portion as a food offering to the LORD. 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 Aaron shall arrange it before the LORD regularly; it is from the people of Israel as a covenant forever. 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 And it shall be for Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in a holy place, since it is for him a most holy portion out of the LORD's food offerings, a perpetual due." 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 Now an Israelite woman's son, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the people of Israel. And the Israelite woman's son and a man of Israel fought in the camp, 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 and the Israelite woman's son blasphemed the Name, and cursed. Then they brought him to Moses. His mother's name was Shelomith, 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 And they put him in custody, till the will of the LORD should be clear to them. 12 They put him in custody until the will of the LORD should be made clear to them.
13 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 13 Then the LORD said to Moses:
14 "Bring out of the camp the one who cursed, and let all who heard him lay their hands on his head, and let all the congregation stone him. 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 And speak to the people of Israel, saying, Whoever curses his God shall bear his sin. 15 Say to the Israelites: 'If anyone curses his God, he will be held responsible;
16 Whoever blasphemes the name of the LORD shall surely be put to death. All the congregation shall stone him. The sojourner as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death. 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 "Whoever takes a human life shall surely be put to death. 17 " 'If anyone takes the life of a human being, he must be put to death.
18 Whoever takes an animal's life shall make it good, life for life. 18 Anyone who takes the life of someone's animal must make restitution--life for life.
19 If anyone injures his neighbor, as he has done it shall be done to him, 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 injury he has given a person shall be given to him. 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 shall make it good, and whoever kills a person shall be put to death. 21 Whoever kills an animal must make restitution, but whoever kills a man must be put to death.
22 You shall have the same rule for the sojourner and for the native, for I am the LORD your God." 22 You are to have the same law for the alien and the native-born. I am the LORD your God.' "
23 So Moses spoke to the people of Israel, and they brought out of the camp the one who had cursed and stoned him with stones. Thus the people of Israel did as the LORD 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.
