Leviticus - Chapter 24
1 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
2 'Order the Israelites to bring you crushed-olive oil for the lamp-stand, and keep a flame burning there continually.
4 Aaron will keep the lamps permanently trimmed on the pure lamp-stand before Yahweh.
5 'You will take wheaten flour and with it bake twelve loaves, each of two-tenths of an ephah.
6 You will then place them in two rows of six on the pure table before Yahweh
7 and put pure incense on each row, to make it food offered as a memorial, food burnt for Yahweh.
10 There was a man whose mother was an Israelite woman and whose father was an Egyptian. He came out of his house and, in the camp, surrounded by the Israelites, he began to quarrel with a man who was an Israelite.
12 He was then put under guard until Yahweh's will should be made clear to them.
13 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
14 'Take the man who pronounced the curse outside the camp. All those who heard him must then lay their hands on his head, and the whole community must then stone him.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
