Leviticus 24 Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE)

24 Et locutus est Dominus ad Moysen, dicens:

Praecipe filiis Israel, ut afferant tibi oleum de olivis purissimum, ac lucidum, ad concinnandas lucernas jugiter,

extra velum testimonii in tabernaculo foederis. Ponetque eas Aaron a vespere usque ad mane coram Domino, cultu rituque perpetuo in generationibus vestris.

Super candelabrum mundissimum ponentur semper in conspectu Domini.

Accipies quoque similam, et coques ex ea duodecim panes, qui singuli habebunt duas decimas:

quorum senos altrinsecus super mensam purissimam coram Domino statues:

et pones super eos thus lucidissimum, ut sit panis in monimentum oblationis Domini.

Per singula sabbata mutabuntur coram Domino suscepti a filiis Israel foedere sempiterno:

eruntque Aaron et filiorum ejus, ut comedant eos in loco sancto: quia Sanctum sanctorum est de sacrificiis Domini jure perpetuo.

10 Ecce autem egressus filius mulieris Israelitidis, quem pepererat de viro aegyptio inter filios Israel, jurgatus est in castris cum viro Israelita.

11 Cumque blasphemasset nomen, et maledixisset ei, adductus est ad Moysen. (Vocabatur autem mater ejus Salumith, filia Dabri de tribu Dan.)

12 Miseruntque eum in carcerem, donec nossent quid juberet Dominus.

13 Qui locutus est ad Moysen,

14 dicens: Educ blasphemum extra castra, et ponant omnes qui audierunt, manus suas super caput ejus, et lapidet eum populus universus.

15 Et ad filios Israel loqueris: Homo, qui maledixerit Deo suo, portabit peccatum suum;

16 et qui blasphemaverit nomen Domini, morte moriatur: lapidibus opprimet eum omnis multitudo, sive ille civis, sive peregrinus fuerit. Qui blasphemaverit nomen Domini, morte moriatur.

17 Qui percusserit, et occiderit hominem, morte moriatur.

18 Qui percusserit animal, reddet vicarium, id est, animam pro anima.

19 Qui irrogaverit maculam cuilibet civium suorum, sicut fecit, sic fiet ei:

20 fracturam pro fractura, oculum pro oculo, dentem pro dente restituet: qualem inflixerit maculam, talem sustinere cogetur.

21 Qui percusserit jumentum, reddet aliud. Qui percusserit hominem, punietur.

22 AEquum judicium sit inter vos, sive peregrinus, sive civis peccaverit: quia ego sum Dominus Deus vester.

23 Locutusque est Moyses ad filios Israel: et eduxerunt eum, qui blasphemaverat, extra castra, ac lapidibus oppresserunt. Feceruntque filii Israel sicut praeceperat Dominus Moysi.

Leviticus 24 New International Version (NIV)

Olive Oil and Bread Set Before the Lord

24 The Lord said to Moses, “Command the Israelites to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light so that the lamps may be kept burning continually. Outside the curtain that shields the ark of the covenant law in the tent of meeting, Aaron is to tend the lamps before the Lord from evening till morning, continually. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come. The lamps on the pure gold lampstand before the Lord must be tended continually.

“Take the finest flour and bake twelve loaves of bread, using two-tenths of an ephah[a] for each loaf. Arrange them in two stacks, six in each stack, on the table of pure gold before the Lord. By each stack put some pure incense as a memorial[b] portion to represent the bread and to be a food offering presented to the Lord. This bread is to be set out before the Lord regularly, Sabbath after Sabbath, on behalf of the Israelites, as a lasting covenant. It belongs to Aaron and his sons, who are to eat it in the sanctuary area, because it is a most holy part of their perpetual share of the food offerings presented to the Lord.”

A Blasphemer Put to Death

10 Now the son of an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father went out among the Israelites, and a fight broke out in the camp between him and an Israelite. 11 The son of the Israelite woman blasphemed the Name with a curse; so they brought him to Moses. (His mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri the Danite.) 12 They put him in custody until the will of the Lord should be made clear to them.

13 Then the Lord said to Moses: 14 “Take the blasphemer outside the camp. All those who heard him are to lay their hands on his head, and the entire assembly is to stone him. 15 Say to the Israelites: ‘Anyone who curses their God will be held responsible; 16 anyone who blasphemes the name of the Lord is to be put to death. The entire assembly must stone them. Whether foreigner or native-born, when they blaspheme the Name they are to be put to death.

17 “‘Anyone who takes the life of a human being is to be put to death. 18 Anyone who takes the life of someone’s animal must make restitution—life for life. 19 Anyone who injures their neighbor is to be injured in the same manner: 20 fracture for fracture, eye for eye, tooth for tooth. The one who has inflicted the injury must suffer the same injury. 21 Whoever kills an animal must make restitution, but whoever kills a human being is to be put to death. 22 You are to have the same law for the foreigner and the native-born. I am the Lord your God.’”

23 Then Moses spoke to the Israelites, and they took the blasphemer outside the camp and stoned him. The Israelites did as the Lord commanded Moses.
