The Oil for the Lamps
1And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
2Command the children of Israel that they bring unto thee pure beaten olive oil for the light, to light the lamp continually.
3Outside the veil of the testimony, in the tent of meeting, shall Aaron dress it from evening to morning before Jehovah continually: it is an everlasting statute throughout your generations.
4Upon the pure candlestick shall he arrange the lamps before Jehovah continually.
(Exodus 25:23-30; Exodus 37:10-16)
5And thou shalt take fine wheaten flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof; each cake shall be of two tenths.
6And thou shalt set them in two rows, six in a row, upon the pure table before Jehovah.
7And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row; and it shall be a bread of remembrance, an offering by fire to Jehovah.
8Every sabbath day he shall arrange it before Jehovah continually, on the part of the children of Israel: it is an everlasting covenant.
9And it shall be Aaron's and his sons'; and they shall eat it in a holy place; for it is most holy unto him of Jehovah's offerings by fire: it is an everlasting statute.
Shelomith's Son Blasphemes
10And the son of an Israelitish woman but withal the son of an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel; and this son of the Israelitess and a man of Israel strove together in the camp;
11and the Israelitish woman's son blasphemed the Name, and cursed; and they brought him to Moses. And his mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.
12And they confined him, that they might decide at the mouth of Jehovah.
13And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
14Lead the reviler outside the camp; and all that heard him shall lay their hands upon his head, and the whole assembly shall stone him.
15And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Every one when he revileth his God shall bear his sin.
16And he that blasphemeth the name of Jehovah shall certainly be put to death; all the assembly shall certainly stone him; as well the stranger as he that is home-born, when he blasphemeth the Name, shall be put to death.
An Eye for an Eye
(Matthew 5:38-48; Luke 6:27-36)
17And if any one smiteth any man mortally, he shall certainly be put to death.
18And he that smiteth a beast mortally shall make it good, life for life.
19And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbour, as he hath done, so shall it be done to him;
20breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him.
21He that smiteth a beast mortally shall make it good; and he that smiteth a man mortally shall be put to death.
22Ye shall have one law: as the stranger, so the home-born; for I am Jehovah your God.
23And Moses spoke to the children of Israel; and they led the reviler outside the camp and stoned him with stones. And the children of Israel did as Jehovah had commanded Moses.
