A perpetual fire is to burn outside the veil in the tabernacle—A blasphemer is put to death by stoning—Israel’s law is one of an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the alamps to burn continually.
3 Without the veil of the testimony, ain the tabernacle of the congregation, shall Aaron border it from the evening unto the morning before the Lord continually: it shall be a statute for ever in your generations.
4 He shall order the alamps upon the pure candlestick before the Lord continually.
5 ¶ And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve acakes thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake.
6 And thou shalt aset them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure btable before the Lord.
7 And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
8 Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the Lord continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant.
9 And it shall be Aaron’s and his sons’; and they shall aeat it in the holy place: for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the Lord made by fire by a perpetual statute.
10 ¶ And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel: and this son of the Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp;
11 And the Israelitish woman’s son ablasphemed the name of the Lord, and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:)
12 And they put him ain ward, that the bmind of the Lord might be shewed them.
13 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
14 Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.
15 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Whosoever acurseth his God shall bear his sin.
16 And he that ablasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shall be put to death.
17 ¶ And he that akilleth any man shall surely be put to bdeath.
18 And he that killeth a beast shall make it good; abeast for beast.
19 And if a man cause a ablemish in his neighbour; as he hath done, so shall it be done to him;
20 Breach for breach, aeye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again.
21 And he that killeth a beast, he shall arestore it: and he that killeth a man, he shall be put to death.
22 Ye shall have one manner of alaw, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the Lord your God.
23 ¶ And Moses spake to the children of Israel, that they should bring forth him that had cursed out of the camp, and stone him with stones. And the children of Israel did as the Lord commanded Moses.
