Pure Oil and Holy Bread

24The LORD said to Moses,H3068H1696H4872H559 2"Command the people of Israel to bring you pure oil of pressed olives for the light, to keep the lamps burning continually.H6680H1121H3478H3947H2134H8081H2132H3795H3974H5216H5927H8548 3This is the lampstand that stands in the Tabernacle, in front of the inner curtain that shields the Ark of the Covenant. Aaron must keep the lamps burning in the LORD's presence all night. This is a permanent law for you, and it must be observed from generation to generation.H2351H6532H5715H168H4150H175H6186H6153H1242H6440H3068H8548H2708H5769H1755 4Aaron and the priests must tend the lamps on the pure gold lampstand continually in the LORD's presence.H6186H5216H2889H4501H6440H3068H8548 5"You must bake twelve loaves of bread from choice flour, using four quarts of flour for each loaf.H3947H5560H644H6240H2471H8147H6241H259H2471 6Place the bread before the LORD on the pure gold table, and arrange the loaves in two rows, with six loaves in each row.H7760H8147H4634H8337H4635H2889H7979H6440H3068 7Put some pure frankincense near each row to serve as a representative offering, a special gift presented to the LORD.H5414H2134H3828H4635H3899H234H801H3068 8Every Sabbath day this bread must be laid out before the LORD. The bread is to be received from the people of Israel as a requirement of the eternal covenant.H7676H3117H6186H6440H3068H8548H1121H3478H5769H1285 9The loaves of bread will belong to Aaron and his descendants, who must eat them in a sacred place, for they are most holy. It is the permanent right of the priests to claim this portion of the special gifts presented to the LORD."H175H1121H398H6918H4725H6944H6944H801H3068H801H5769H2706

An Example of Just Punishment

10One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father came out of his tent and got into a fight with one of the Israelite men.H1121H3482H802H1121H376H4713H3318H8432H1121H3478H3481H1121H3482H376H3478H5327H4264 11During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the Name of the LORD with a curse. So the man was brought to Moses for judgment. His mother was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan.H3482H802H1121H5344H8034H7043H935H4872H517H8034H8019H1323H1704H4294H1835 12They kept the man in custody until the LORD's will in the matter should become clear to them.H3240H4929H6310H3068H6567 13Then the LORD said to Moses,H3068H1696H4872H559 14"Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard the curse to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire community stone him to death.H3318H7043H2351H4264H8085H5564H3027H7218H5712H7275 15Say to the people of Israel: Those who curse their God will be punished for their sin.H1696H1121H3478H559H376H3588H7043H430H5375H2399 16Anyone who blasphemes the Name of the LORD must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any native-born Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the Name of the LORD must be put to death.H5344H8034H3068H4191H4191H5712H7275H7275H1616H249H5344H8034H4191 17"Anyone who takes another person's life must be put to death.H376H5221H5315H120H4191H4191 18"Anyone who kills another person's animal must pay for it in full - a live animal for the animal that was killed.H5221H5315H929H7999H5315H5315 19"Anyone who injures another person must be dealt with according to the injury inflicted -H376H5414H3971H5997H6213H6213 20a fracture for a fracture, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Whatever anyone does to injure another person must be paid back in kind.H7667H7667H5869H5869H8127H8127H5414H3971H120H5414 21"Whoever kills an animal must pay for it in full, but whoever kills another person must be put to death.H5221H929H7999H5221H120H4191 22"This same standard applies both to native-born Israelites and to the foreigners living among you. I am the LORD your God."H259H4941H1616H249H3068H430 23After Moses gave all these instructions to the Israelites, they took the blasphemer outside the camp and stoned him to death. The Israelites did just as the LORD had commanded Moses.H4872H1696H1121H3478H3318H7043H2351H4264H7275H68H1121H3478H6213H3068H6680H4872
