Leviticus 24
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And YHWH speaks to Moses, saying, 2“Command the sons of Israel, and they bring pure oil of beaten olive to you for the lamp, to cause a light to go up continually; 3Aaron arranges it at the outside of the veil of the Testimony, in the Tent of Meeting, from evening until morning before YHWH continually—a continuous statute throughout your generations; 4he arranges the lights on the pure lampstand before YHWH continually.

5And you have taken flour, and have baked twelve cakes with it, two-tenth parts are in one cake, 6and you have set them [in] two rows (six in the row) on the pure table before YHWH, 7and you have put pure frankincense on the row, and it has been with the bread for a memorial, a fire-offering to YHWH. 8On each Sabbath day he arranges it before YHWH continually, from the sons of Israel—a perpetual covenant; 9and it has been for Aaron and for his sons, and they have eaten it in the holy place, for it [is] most holy to him, from the fire-offerings of YHWH—a continuous statute.”

10And a son of an Israeli woman goes out (and he [is] son of an Egyptian man) in the midst of the sons of Israel, and the son of the Israeli woman and a man of Israel strive in the camp, 11and the son of the Israeli woman execrates the Name and reviles; and they bring him to Moses; and his mother’s name [is] Shelomith daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan; 12and he causes him to rest in confinement —to explain to them by the mouth of YHWH.

13And YHWH speaks to Moses, saying, 14“Bring out the reviler to the outside of the camp; and all those hearing have laid their hands on his head, and all the congregation has stoned him. 15And you speak to the sons of Israel, saying, When any man reviles his God—then he has borne his sin; 16and he who is execrating the Name of YHWH is certainly put to death; all the congregation certainly casts stones at him; as a sojourner so a native, in his execrating the Name, he is put to death.

17And when a man strikes any soul of man, he is certainly put to death. 18And he who strikes a beast repays it, body for body. 19And when a man puts a blemish in his fellow, as he has done so it is done to him; 20breach for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; as he puts a blemish in a man so it is done in him. 21And he who strikes a beast repays it, and he who strikes [the life of] man is put to death. 22One judgment is for you; as a sojourner so is a native; for I [am] your God YHWH.” 23And Moses speaks to the sons of Israel, and they bring out the reviler to the outside of the camp, and stone him [with] stone; and the sons of Israel have done as YHWH has commanded Moses.
