and Bread Set Before the Lord
24:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
24:2 Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto
thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps
to burn continually.
24:3 Without the vail of the testimony, in the tabernacle
of the congregation, shall Aaron order it from the evening
unto the morning before the LORD continually: it shall be a
statute for ever in your generations.
24:4 He shall order the lamps upon the pure candlestick
before the LORD continually.
24:5 And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes
thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake.
24:6 And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row,
upon the pure table before the LORD.
24:7 And thou shalt put pure frankincense upon each row,
that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering
made by fire unto the LORD.
24:8 Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD
continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an
24:9 And it shall be Aaron's 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 made by fire by a perpetual
A Blasphemer Stoned
24:10 And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose
father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of
Israel: and this son of the Israelitish woman and a man of
Israel strove together in the camp;
24:11 And the Israelitish woman's son blasphemed the name
of the Lord, and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses:
(and his mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri,
of the tribe of Dan:)
24:12 And they put him in ward, that the mind of the LORD
might be showed them.
24:13 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
24:14 Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp;
and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head,
and let all the congregation stone him.
24:15 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel,
saying, Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin.
24:16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he
shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall
certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is
born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the Lord,
shall be put to death.
24:17 And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to
24:18 And he that killeth a beast shall make it good; beast
24:19 And if a man cause a blemish in his neighbor; as he
hath done, so shall it be done to him;
24:20 Breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as
he hath caused a blemish in a man, so shall it be done to
24:21 And he that killeth a beast, he shall restore it: and
he that killeth a man, he shall be put to death.
24:22 Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the
stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the LORD
24:23 And Moses spake to the children of Israel, that they
should bring forth him that had cursed out of the camp, and
stone him with stones. And the children of Israel did as the
LORD commanded Moses.
