Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The LORD said to Moses, 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 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 Outside the veil of the testimony, in the tent of meeting, Aaron shall keep it in order from evening to morning before the LORD continually; it shall be a statute for ever 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 keep the lamps in order upon the lampstand of pure gold before the LORD continually. 4 The lamps on the pure gold lampstand before the LORD must be tended continually.
5 "And you shall take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes of it; two tenths of an ephah shall be in each cake. 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 rows, six in a row, upon the table of pure gold. 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 with each row, that it may go with the bread as a memorial portion to be offered by fire 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 set it in order before the LORD continually on behalf of the people of Israel as a covenant for ever. 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 offerings by fire to the LORD, 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 quarreled 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. And they brought him to Moses. His mother's name was Shelo'mith, 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 declared to them. 12 They put him in custody until the will of the LORD should be made clear to them.
13 And the LORD said to Moses, 13 Then the LORD said to Moses:
14 "Bring out of the camp him who cursed; and let all who heard him lay their hands upon 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 say to the people of Israel, Whoever curses his God shall bear his sin. 15 Say to the Israelites: 'If anyone curses his God, he will be held responsible;
16 He who blasphemes the name of the LORD shall 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 He who kills a man shall be put to death. 17 " 'If anyone takes the life of a human being, he must be put to death.
18 He who kills a beast shall make it good, life for life. 18 Anyone who takes the life of someone's animal must make restitution--life for life.
19 When a man causes a disfigurement in 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; as he has disfigured a man, he shall be disfigured. 20 fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. As he has injured the other, so he is to be injured.
21 He who kills a beast shall make it good; and he who kills a man 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 one law 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 him who had cursed out of the camp, 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.
