The oil for the lamps; the shew-bread. 24 AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, " Command the children of Israel, Ex. 27. 30, 31. 2 that they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps 3 to burn continually. Without the vail of the testimony, in the tabernacle of the
congregation, shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning before the 4 LORD continually: it shall be a statute for ever in your generations. He shall
order the lamps upon the pure candlestick before the Lord continually. 5 And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve "cakes thereof : two tenth - ELD 6 deals shall be in one cake. And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, 7. upon the pure table before the Lord. And thou shalt put pure frankincense
upon each row, that it may be on the bread for a memorial, even an offering made 8 by fire unto the LORD. Every sabbath he shall set it in order before the LORD
continually, being taken from the children of Israel by an everlasting covenant. 9 And it shall be Aaron's and his sons'; and they shall eat it in the holy place :
for it is most holy unto him of the offerings of the Lord made by fire by a perpetual statute.
Punishment of blasphemy; various laws. 10 AND the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian, ? went
out among the children of Israel: and this son of the Israelitish woman and a 11 man of Israel strove together in the camp; and the Israelitish woman's son
y blasphemed the name of the LORD, 2 and 3 cursed. And they brought him
unto Moses : (and his inother's name was Shelomith, the daughter of Vibri, of 12 the tribe of Dan :) and they put him in ward, that the mind of the Lord might Sum 32 13 be showed them. And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Bring forth him 14 that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that heard him « lay their hands 15 upon his head, and let all the congregation 'stone him. And thou shalt speak
unto the children of Israel, saying, Whosoever curseth his God I shall bear his ch. 5.1; 20. 17. Ex. 16 sin. And he that s blasphemeth the name of the Lord, he shall surely be put to
death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the LORD,
shall be put to death. 17 * And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death. And he that GOA : Ex 18 killeth a beast shall make it good; beast for beast. And if a man cause a blemish 19 in his neighbour; as " he hath done, so shall it be done to him; breach for 20 breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth: as he hath caused a blemish in a man, so 21 shall it be done to him again. And he that killeth a beast, he shall restore it: 22 mand he that killeth a man, he shall be put to death. Ye shall have "one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the
God. 23 And Moses spake to the children of Israel, that they should bring forth him
that had cursed out of the camp, and stone him with stones. And the children of Israel did as the LORD commanded Moses.
The sabbatic year; and year of jubilee. 25 AND the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying, Speak unto the 2 children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give 3 you, then shall the land keep (rest] Pa sabbaths unto the Lord. Six years thout
shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in 4 the fruit thereof; but in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land,
a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard. 5 9 That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither 12 Ki 12 2.
gather the grapes of thy vine undressed : for it is a year of rest unto the land. 6 Ånd the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you; for thee, and for thy servant,

increase thereof be meat. 8 And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven
years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and 9 nine years. Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound on the 1s. 27. 13; 63. 4.
tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the 10 trumpet sound throughout all your land. And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year,
and 'proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof : 1.61 1–3, 63.4:
it shall be a jubilee unto you; "and ye shall return every man unto his posses11 sion, and ye shall return every man unto his family. A jubilee shall that fiftieth
year be unto you: 'ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself * ver: 5. 12 in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. For it is the jubilee; it 13 shall be holy unto you: "ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. In 14 the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man unto his possession. And if
thou sell aught unto thy neighbour, or buyest aught of thy neighbour's hand, 15 ye shall not oppress one another: baccording to the number of years after the
jubilee thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, and according unto the number of years 16 of the fruits he shall sell unto thee : according to the multitude of years thou
shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits
doth he sell unto thee. 17
Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; d but thou shalt fear thy God : 18 for I am the LORD your God. Wherefore ye
shall do my statutes, and keep my 19 judgments, and do them; Sand ye shall dwell in the land in safety. And the *"% 6: Deinu.
land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety. 20 And if ye shall say, 'What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, * we shall not 21 sow, nor gather in our increase : then I will command my blessing upon you 22 in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years. And ye shall h. 26. 5; Exe. 3.

away some of his possession, and if'any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall 26 he redeem that which his brother sold. And if the man have none to redeem it, 27 and himself be able to redeem it; then let him count the years of the sale Ch.22 15
thereof, and restore the overplus? unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may 28 return unto his possession. But if he be not able to restore it to him, then that
which is sold shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of
jubilee: "and in the jubilee it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession. 29 And if a man sell a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may redeem it 30 within a whole year after it is sold; within a full year may he redeem it. And if it be not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the
a walled city shall be established for ever to him that bought it throughout his 31 generations: it shall not go out in the jubilee. But the houses of the villages
which have no wall round about them shall be counted as the fields of the 32 country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubilee. Notwith
standing the cities of the Levites, and the houses of the cities of their posses33 sion, may the Levites redeem at any time. And if a man purchase of the Levites,
then the house that was sold, and the city of his possession, shall go out in the veryone
year of jubilee : for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession 34 among the children of Israel. But " the field of the suburbs of their cities may
not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession. 3.5 And if thy brother be waxen poor, 4 and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt
relieve (strengthen] him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he 36 may live with thee. Take thou no usury of him, or increase : but "fear thy 37 God; that thy brother may live with thee. Thou shalt not give him thy money 38 upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.

the cast), the bread of several families would be baked in one oven; when each would take care not to lose the smallest portion of their share.
4 This dreadful judgment was repeatedly inflicted. See 2 Kings vi. 28, 29; Lam. iv. 10; and the account of the siege and capture of Jerusalem by the Romans, as related by Josephus.

years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for 7 the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver. And if it be from sixty
