Leviticus 24

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27]

24:1 And the Lord said to Moses,

24:2 Give orders to the children of Israel to give you clean olive oil for the light, so that a light may be burning at all times,

24:3 Outside the veil of the ark in the Tent of meeting; let Aaron see that it is burning from evening till morning at all times before the Lord: it is a rule for ever through all your generations.

24:4 Let Aaron put the lights in order on the support before the Lord at all times.

24:5 And take the best meal and make twelve cakes of it, a fifth part of an ephah in every cake.

24:6 And put them in two lines, six in a line, on the holy table before the Lord.

24:7 And on the lines of cakes put clean sweet-smelling spices, for a sign on the bread, an offering made by fire to the Lord.

24:8 Every Sabbath day regularly, the priest is to put it in order before the Lord: it is offered for the children of Israel, an agreement made for ever.

24:9 And it will be for Aaron and his sons; they are to take it for food in a holy place: it is the most holy of all the offerings made by fire to the Lord, a rule for ever.

24:10 And a son of an Israelite woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel and had a fight with a man of Israel by the tents;

24:11 And the son of the Israelite woman said evil against the holy Name, with curses; and they took him to Moses. His mother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan.

24:12 And they kept him shut up, till a decision might be given by the mouth of the Lord.

24:13 And the Lord said to Moses,

24:14 Take the curser outside the tent-circle; and let all in whose hearing the words were said put their hands on his head, and let him be stoned by all the people.

24:15 And say to the children of Israel, As for any man cursing God, his sin will be on his head.

24:16 And he who says evil against the name of the Lord will certainly be put to death; he will be stoned by all the people; the man who is not of your nation and one who is an Israelite by birth, whoever says evil against the holy Name is to be put to death.

24:17 And anyone who takes another's life is certainly to be put to death.

24:18 And anyone wounding a beast and causing its death, will have to make payment for it: a life for a life.

24:19 And if a man does damage to his neighbour, as he has done, so let it be done to him;

24:20 Wound for wound, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; whatever damage he has done, so let it be done to him.

24:21 He who puts a beast to death will have to make payment for it; he who puts a man to death will himself be put to death.

24:22 You are to have the same law for a man of another nation living among you as for an Israelite; for I am the Lord your God.

24:23 And Moses said these words to the children of Israel, and they took the man who had been cursing outside the tent-circle and had him stoned. The children of Israel did as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
