The lamps on the pure gold lampstand before the LORD must be tended continually.
“Take the finest flour and bake twelve loaves of bread, using two-tenths of an ephah for each loaf.
Arrange them in two stacks, six in each stack, on the table of pure gold before the LORD.
By each stack put some pure incense as a memorial portion to represent the bread and to be a food offering presented to the LORD.
This bread is to be set out before the LORD regularly, Sabbath after Sabbath, on behalf of the Israelites, as a lasting covenant.
It belongs to Aaron and his sons, who are to eat it in the sanctuary area, because it is a most holy part of their perpetual share of the food offerings presented to the LORD.”
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.
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.)
They put him in custody until the will of the LORD should be made clear to them.
Then the LORD said to Moses:
“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.
