10A man whose mother was an Israelite and whose father was an Egyptian came out among the people of Israel; and the Israelite womans son and a certain Israelite began fighting in the camp. 11The Israelite womans son blasphemed the Name in a curse. And they brought him to Mosesnow his mothers name was Shelomith, daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan 12and they put him in custody, until the decision of the Lord should be made clear to them. 13The Lord said to Moses, saying: 14Take the blasphemer outside the camp; and let all who were within hearing lay their hands on his head, and let the whole congregation stone him. 15And speak to the people of Israel, saying: Anyone who curses God shall bear the sin. 16One who blasphemes the name of the Lord shall be put to death; the whole congregation shall stone the blasphemer. Aliens as well as citizens, when they blaspheme the Name, shall be put to death. 17Anyone who kills a human being shall be put to death.
