Leviticus 24

<< Leviticus 24 >>
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)
 

1And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 2Command the sons of Israel that they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually. 3Outside the veil of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the testimony, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning before the LORD continually; it shall be a perpetual statute for all your ages. 4He shall order the lamps upon the pure lampstand before the LORD continually. 5And thou shalt take fine flour and bake twelve cakes thereof; each cake shall be of two-tenth deals. 6And thou shalt set them in two orders, six in each order, upon the clean table before the LORD. 7And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each order, that it may be on the bread for an aroma and incense unto the LORD. 8Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD continually: an everlasting covenant of the sons of Israel. 9And it shall belong to Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat it in the holy place, for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the LORD on fire, by a perpetual statute.

10In that season the son of an Israelite woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the sons of Israel; and this son of the Israelite woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp; 11and the Israelite woman’s son pronounced the Name and cursed; and they brought him unto Moses. And his mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan. 12And they put him in ward that the mind of the LORD might be showed them. 13And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 14Bring forth the one that has blasphemed outside the camp and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him. 15And thou shalt speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, The man that speaks evil of his God shall bear his sin. 16And he that pronounces the name of the LORD shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall certainly stone him; the same with the stranger as with the natural, if he pronounces the Name, he shall be put to death. 17Likewise he that kills any man shall surely be put to death. 18And he that kills an animal shall make it good: animal for animal. 19And if a man causes a blemish in his neighbour; as he has done, so shall it be done to him; 20breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he has caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to him again. 21He that kills an animal shall restore it, but he that kills a man shall be put to death. 22Ye shall have one manner of law: as for the stranger, so shall it be for the natural; for I am the LORD your God. 23And Moses spoke to the sons of Israel that they should bring forth the one that had blasphemed out of the camp and stone him with stones. And the sons of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses.
