Aaron must keep the lamps on the pure gold lamp stand lit in the LORD's presence.
"Also take flour and bake twelve rings of bread. Each ring will contain four quarts of flour.
Put them in two stacks of six each on the gold table in the LORD's presence.
Lay pure incense on top of each stack. The incense on the bread will be a reminder, an offering by fire to the LORD.
Every day of worship [a priest] must arrange the bread in the LORD's presence. It is a continual reminder of my promise to the Israelites.
The bread will belong to Aaron and his sons. They will eat it in a holy place. It is very holy, set apart from the LORD's offering by fire. This is a permanent law."
A man, whose mother was Shelomith (daughter of Dibri, from the tribe of Dan in Israel) and whose father was from Egypt, got into a quarrel with an Israelite in the camp.
The Israelite woman's son began cursing the LORD's name and treating it with contempt. So they brought him to Moses.
They kept him in custody until the LORD told them what to do.
The LORD spoke to Moses,
"The man who cursed [my name] must be taken outside the camp. All who heard him curse [my name] must lay their hands on his head. Then the whole congregation must stone him to death.
