The oil for the lamps.
Leviticus 24:1 And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, Leviticus 24:2 Commande the children of Israel that they bring vnto thee pure oyle oliue beaten, for the light, to cause ye lampes to burne continually. Leviticus 24:3 Without the vaile of the Testimonie, in the Tabernacle of the Congregation, shal Aaron dresse them, both euen and morning before the Lord alwayes: this shalbe a lawe for euer through your generations. Leviticus 24:4 He shall dresse the lampes vpon the pure Candlesticke before the Lorde perpetually.
Leviticus 24:5 Also thou shalt take fine floure, and bake twelue cakes thereof: two tenth deales shalbe in one cake. Leviticus 24:6 And thou shalt set them in two rowes, six in a rowe vpon the pure table before the Lorde. Leviticus 24:7 Thou shalt also put pure incense vpon the rowes, that in steade of the bread it may bee for a remembrance, and an offering made by fire to the Lord. Leviticus 24:8 Euery Sabbath hee shall put them in rowes before the Lord euermore, receiuing them of the children of Israel for an euerlasting couenant. Leviticus 24:9 And the bread shalbe Aaros & his sonnes, and they shall eate it in the holie place: for it is most holie vnto him of the offrings of the Lord made by fire by a perpetuall ordinance.
Shelomith's son blasphemeth.
Leviticus 24:10 And there went out among the children of Israel the sonne of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian: and this sonne of the Israelitish woman, and a man of Israel stroue together in the hoste. Leviticus 24:11 So the Israelitish womans sonne blasphemed the name of the Lord, and cursed, and they brought him vnto Moses (his mothers name also was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan) Leviticus 24:12 And they put him in warde, till he tolde them the minde of the Lorde.
The law of blasphemy.
Leviticus 24:13 Then the Lorde spake vnto Moses, saying, Leviticus 24:14 Bring the blasphemer without the hoste, and let all that heard him, put their handes vpon his head, and let all the Congregation stone him. Leviticus 24:15 And thou shalt speake vnto the children of Israel, saying, Whosoeuer curseth his God, shall beare his sinne. Leviticus 24:16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shalbe put to death: all the Congregation shall stone him to death: aswell the stranger, as he that is borne in the lande: when he blasphemeth the name of the Lorde, let him beslaine.
Leviticus 24:17 He also that killeth any man, he shal be put to death.
Leviticus 24:18 And he that killeth a beast, he shal restore it, beast for beast. Leviticus 24:19 Also if a man cause any blemish in his neighbour: as he hath done, so shall it be done to him. Leviticus 24:20 Breache for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: such a blemish as he hath made in any, such shalbe repayed to him. Leviticus 24:21 And he that killeth a beast shall restore it: but he that killeth a man shall be slaine. Leviticus 24:22 Ye shall haue one lawe: it shalbe aswel for the stranger as for one borne in the countrey: for I am the Lorde your God.
The blasphemer stoned.
Leviticus 24:23 Then Moses tolde the children of Israel, and they brought the blasphemer out of the hoste, and stoned him with stones: so the children of Israel did as the Lorde had commanded Moses.
