Sabbath-breaking Punished

32 Now while the sons of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man (A)gathering wood on the Sabbath day. 33 And those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron, and to all the congregation; 34 and they placed him in custody, (B)because it had not been decided what should be done to him. 35 Then the Lord said to Moses, “The man must be put to death; (C)all the congregation shall stone him with stones outside the camp.” 36 So all the congregation brought him outside the camp and stoned him [a]to death with stones, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
