A Sabbathbreaker Executed
While the people of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man z gathering sticks on the Sabbath day.
And those who found him gathering sticks brought him to Moses and Aaron and to all the congregation.
a They put him in custody, because it had not been made clear what should be done to him.
And the Lord said to Moses, b "The man shall be put to death; all the congregation shall c stone him with stones outside the camp."
And all the congregation brought him outside the camp and stoned him to death with stones, as the Lord commanded Moses.
