Leviticus 24
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

The Oil for the Lamps

1And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2Charge the children of Israel, and let them take for thee pure olive oil beaten for the light, to burn a lamp continually, 3outside the veil in the tabernacle of witness; and Aaron and his sons shall burn it from evening until morning before the Lord continually, a perpetual statute throughout your generations. 4Ye shall burn the lamps on the pure lamp-stand before the Lord till the morrow.

The Showbread

5And ye shall take fine flour, and make of it twelve loaves; each loaf shall be of two tenth parts. 6And ye shall put them in two rows, each row containing six loaves, on the pure table before the Lord. 7And ye shall put on each row pure frankincense and salt; and these things shall be for loaves for a memorial, set forth before the Lord. 8On the sabbath-day they shall be set forth before the Lord continually before the children of Israel, for an everlasting covenant. 9And they shall be for Aaron and his sons, and they shall eat them in the holy place: for this is their most holy portion of the offerings made to the Lord, a perpetual statute.

Punishment for Blasphemy

10And there went forth a son of an Israelitish woman, and he was son of an Egyptian man among the sons of Israel; and they fought in the camp, the son of the Israelitish woman, and a man who was an Israelite. 11And the son of the Israelitish woman named THE NAME and curse; and they brought him to Moses: and his mother's name was Salomith, daughter of Dabri of the tribe of Dan. 12And they put him in ward, to judge him by the command of the Lord.

13And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 14Bring forth him that cursed outside the camp, and all who heard shall lay their hands upon his head, and all the congregation shall stone him. 15And speak to the sons of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, Whosoever shall curse God shall bear his sin. 16And he that names the name of the Lord, let him die the death: let all the congregation of Israel stone him with stones; whether he be a stranger or a native, let him die for naming the name of the Lord.

An Eye for an Eye

17And whosoever shall smite a man and he die, let him die the death. 18And whosoever shall smite a beast, and it shall die, let him render life for life. 19And whosoever shall inflict a blemish on his neighbour, as he has done to him, so shall it be done to himself in return; 20bruise for bruise, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as any one may inflict a blemish on a man, so shall it be rendered to him. 21Whosoever shall smite a man, and he shall die, let him die the death. 22There shall be one judgment for the stranger and the native, for I am the Lord your God. 23And Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and they brought him that had cursed out of the camp, and stoned him with stones: and the children of Israel did as the Lord commanded Moses.
