Darby Bible Translation
But the soul that doeth ought with a high hand, whether born in the land, or a stranger, he reproacheth Jehovah; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
World English Bible
"'But the soul who does anything with a high hand, whether he is native-born or a foreigner, the same blasphemes Yahweh; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
Young's Literal Translation

Numbers 15:30 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
But the soul that doeth aught presumptuously - Bold daring acts of transgression against the fullest evidence, and in despite of the Divine authority, admitted of no atonement; the person was to be cut off - to be excluded from God's people, and from all their privileges and blessings.
Probably the presumption mentioned here implied an utter contempt of the word and authority of God, springing from an idolatrous or atheistical mind. In such a case all repentance was precluded, because of the denial of the word and being of God. It is probably a case similar to that mentioned Hebrews 6:4-8 (note); Hebrews 10:26-31 (note); on which passages see the notes.

presumptuously. Heb. with an high hand. That is, bold, daring, deliberate acts of transgression against the fullest evidence, and in despite of the Divine authority. Such conduct 'reproacheth the Lord,' as if his commands were needless, unreasonable, and inimical to the happiness of man; his favour were not desirable, or his wrath not to be feared; in short, as if it were more advantageous to rebel against him than to serve him. Such acts admitted of no atonement; the person was condemned to bear his own iniquity, and to be cut off. reproacheth.

The Call of Isaiah
If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left,
1 John 5:16
If you see any brother or sister commit a sin that does not lead to death, you should pray and God will give them life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that you should pray about that.
Early the next morning they set out for the highest point in the hill country, saying, "Now we are ready to go up to the land the LORD promised. Surely we have sinned!"
One and the same law applies to everyone who sins unintentionally, whether a native-born Israelite or a foreigner residing among you.
So I told you, but you would not listen. You rebelled against the LORD's command and in your arrogance you marched up into the hill country.
Anyone who shows contempt for the judge or for the priest who stands ministering there to the LORD your God is to be put to death. You must purge the evil from Israel.
All the people will hear and be afraid, and will not be contemptuous again.
