Punishment for Blasphemy

10And the sonne of an Israelitish wife whose father was an Egiptian, went oute amonge the childern of Israel. And this sonne off the Israelitish wife and a man of Israel, strooue togither in the hoste. 11And the Israelitish womans sonne blasphemed the name and cursed, and they broughte him vnto Moses. And his mothers name was Selamyth, the doughter off Dybri off the trybe of Dan: 12and they putt him in warde, that Moses shulde declare vnto them what the Lorde sayde thereto.

13And the Lorde spake vnto Moses sayenge, 14bringe him that cursed without the hoste, and let all that herde him, put their handes apo his heed, and let all the multitude stone him. 15And speake vnto the childern of Israel sayenge: Whosoeuer curseth his God, shall bere his synne: 16And he that blasphemeth the name of the Lorde, shall dye for it: all the multitude shall stone him to deeth. And the straunger as well as the Israelite yf he curse the name, shall dye for it.

An Eye for an Eye
(Matthew 5:38–48)

17He that kylleth any man, shall dye for it: 18but he that kylleth a beest shall paye for it, beest for beest. 19Yf a man mayme his neyghboure as he hath done, so shall it be done to him agayne: 20broke for broke, eye for eye and toth for toth: euen as he hath maymed a man, so shall he be maymed agayne. 21So nowe he that kylleth a beest, shall paye for it: but he that kylleth a man, shall dye for it. 22Ye shall haue one maner of lawe amonge you: eue for the straunger as wel as for one of youre selues, for I am the Lorde youre God. 23And Moses tolde the childern of Israel, that they shulde bringe him that had cursed, out of the hoste, and stone him with stones. And the childern of Israel dyd as the Lorde comaunded Moses.
