Leviticus 24

The oil for the lamps.

Leviticus 24:1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Leviticus 24:2 Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee the finest and clearest oil of olives, to furnish the lamps continually, Leviticus 24:3 Without the veil of the testimony in the tabernacle of the covenant. And Aaron shall set them from evening until morning before the Lord, by a perpetual service and rite in your generations. Leviticus 24:4 They shall be set upon the most pure candlestick before the Lord continually.

The shewbread.

Leviticus 24:5 Thou shalt take also fine flour, and shalt bake twelve loaves thereof, two tenths shall be in every loaf. Leviticus 24:6 And thou shalt set them six and six, one against another, upon the most clean table before the Lord. Leviticus 24:7 And thou shalt put upon them the clearest frankincense, that the bread may be for a memorial of the oblation of the Lord. Leviticus 24:8 Every sabbath they shall be changed before the Lord: being received of the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant. Leviticus 24:9 And they shall be Aaron's and his sons', that they may eat them in the holy place: because it is most holy of the sacrifices of the Lord by a perpetual right.

Shelomith's son blasphemeth.

Leviticus 24:10 And behold there went out the son of a woman of Israel, whom she had of an Egyptian, among the children of Israel: and fell at words in the camp with a man of Israel. Leviticus 24:11 And when he had blasphemed the name, and had cursed it, he was brought to Moses. (Now his mother was called Salumith, the daughter of Dabri, of the tribe of Dan.) Leviticus 24:12 And they put him into prison, till they might know what the Lord would command.

The law of blasphemy.

Leviticus 24:13 And the Lord spoke to Moses, Leviticus 24:14 Saying: Bring forth the blasphemer without the camp: and let them that heard him, put their hands upon his head: and let all the people stone him. Leviticus 24:15 And thou shalt speak to the children of Israel: The man that curseth his God, shall bear his sin: Leviticus 24:16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, dying let him die. All the multitude shall stone him, whether he be a native or a stranger. He that blasphemeth the name of the Lord, dying let him die.

Of murder.

Leviticus 24:17 He that striketh and killeth a man: dying let him die.

Of damage.

Leviticus 24:18 He that killeth a beast, shall make it good that is to say, shall give beast for beast. Leviticus 24:19 He that giveth a blemish to any of his neighbours: as he hath done, so shall it be done to him: Leviticus 24:20 Breach for breach, eye for ere, tooth for tooth, shall he restore. What blemish he gave, the like shall he be compelled to suffer. Leviticus 24:21 He that striketh a beast, shall render another. He that striketh a man shall be punished. Leviticus 24:22 Let there be equal judgment among you, whether he be a stranger, or a native that offends: because I am the Lord your God.

The blasphemer stoned.

Leviticus 24:23 And Moses spoke to the children of Israel. And they brought forth him that had blasphemed, without the camp: and they stoned him. And the children of Israel did as the Lord had commanded Moses.
