24:3 Outside of the veil of the Testimony, in the Tent of Meeting, shall Aaron keep it in order from evening to morning before Yahweh continually: it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations.

24:4 He shall keep in order the lamps on the pure gold lampstand before Yahweh continually.

24:5 “You shall take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes of it: two tenth parts of an ephah shall be in one cake.

24:6 You shall set them in two rows, six on a row, on the pure gold table before Yahweh.

24:7 You shall put pure frankincense on each row, that it may be to the bread for a memorial, even an offering made by fire to Yahweh.

24:8 Every Sabbath day he shall set it in order before Yahweh continually. It is on the behalf of the children of Israel an everlasting covenant.

24:9 It shall be for Aaron and his sons; and they shall 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.”

24:14 “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.

24:15 You shall speak to the children of Israel, saying, ‘Whoever curses his God shall bear his sin.

24:16 He who blasphemes the name of Yahweh, he shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall certainly stone him: the foreigner as well as the native-born, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death.

24:19 If anyone injures his neighbor; as he has done, so shall it be done to him:

24:20 fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; as he has injured someone, so shall it be done to him.

24:21 He who kills an animal shall make it good; and he who kills a man shall be put to death.

24:22 You shall have one kind of law, for the foreigner as well as the native-born: for I am Yahweh your God.’”
