“And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the LORD, shall be put to death.”
King James Version (KJV)
24:16 He that blasphemeth the name of the Lord - This is a repetition of the same sin in other words, which is common. As this law is laid down in general terms, #Lev 24:15|, so both the sin and the punishment are particularly expressed, #Lev 24:16|. All the congregation - To shew their zeal for God, and to beget in them the greater dread and abhorrence of blasphemy.
