Tabernacle Oil and Bread

1Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
  2“Command the children of Israel that they bring to you pure olive oil beaten for the light, to cause a lamp to burn continually.
  3Outside of the veil of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting Aaron is to keep it in order from evening to morning before Yahweh continually; it is to be a statute forever throughout your generations.
  4He must tend the lamps on the pure gold menorah before Yahweh continually.

5“You are to take fine flour and bake 12 cakes of it: two tenth parts of an ephah will be in one cake.
  6You are to set them in two stacks, six in a stack, on the pure gold table before Yahweh.
  7You are to put pure frankincense on each row, that it may be to the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire to Yahweh.
  8Every Sabbath day he is to set it in order before Yahweh continually. It is on the behalf of the children of Israel an everlasting covenant.
  9It will be for Aaron and his sons, and they are to eat it in a holy place; for it is most holy to him of the offerings of Yahweh made by fire by a perpetual statute.”

A Case of Blasphemy

10The son of an Israelite woman whose father was an Egyptian went out among the children of Israel; and the son of the Israelite woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp.
  11The son of the Israelite woman blasphemed the Name and cursed, and they brought him to Moses. His mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.
  12They put him in custody until the will of Yahweh should be declared to them.

13Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
  14“Bring out of the camp him who cursed, and let all who heard him lay their hands on his head and let all the congregation stone him.
  15You are to speak to the children of Israel, saying: Anyone, anyone, who curses his God will bear his sin.
  16But whoever blasphemes the name of Yahweh, he is to be put to death, yes, death. All the congregation is to stone, yes, stone him; the foreigner as well as the native-born, when he blasphemes the Name, is to be put to death!

An Eye for an Eye

17“And if a man takes the life of any human being, he must be put to death, yes, death.
  18He who strikes an animal mortally is to make it good, life for life.
  19If anyone injures his neighbor, as he has done, so it is to be done to him:
  20fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. As he has injured someone, so is it to be done to him.
  21He who kills an animal is to make restitution, but he who kills a human is to be put to death.
  22You are to have one kind of law, for the foreigner as well as the native–born; for I am Yahweh your God.”

23Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and they brought out him who had cursed out of the camp and stoned him with stones. The children of Israel did as Yahweh commanded Moses.
