Bible in Basic English
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,
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.
4: Let Aaron put the lights in order on the support before the Lord at all times.
5: And take the best meal and make twelve cakes of it, a fifth part of an ephah in every cake.
6: And put them in two lines, six in a line, on the holy table before the Lord.
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.
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.
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.
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;
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.
12: And they kept him shut up, till a decision might be given by the mouth of the Lord.
13: And the Lord said to Moses,
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.
15: And say to the children of Israel, As for any man cursing God, his sin will be on his head.
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.
17: And anyone who takes another's life is certainly to be put to death.
18: And anyone wounding a beast and causing its death, will have to make payment for it: a life for a life.
19: And if a man does damage to his neighbour, as he has done, so let it be done to him;
20: Wound for wound, eye for eye, tooth for tooth; whatever damage he has done, so let it be done to him.
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.
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.
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.
