Bible: Numbers 15:32-41

15:32 When the Israelites were 1  in the wilderness they found a man gathering wood on the Sabbath day. 2  15:33 Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and to the whole community. 15:34 They put him in custody, because there was no clear instruction about what should be done to him. 15:35 Then the Lord said to Moses, “The man must surely be put to death; the whole community must stone 3  him with stones outside the camp.” 15:36 So the whole community took him outside the camp and stoned him to death, 4  just as the Lord commanded Moses.

Rules for Tassels

15:37 The Lord spoke to Moses: 15:38 Speak to the Israelites and tell them to make 5  tassels 6  for themselves on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and put a blue thread 7  on the tassel of the corners. 15:39 You must have this tassel so that you may look at it and remember all the commandments of the Lord and obey them and so that you do not follow 8  after your own heart and your own eyes that lead you to unfaithfulness. 9  15:40 Thus 10  you will remember and obey all my commandments and be holy to your God. 15:41 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to be your God. I am the Lord your God.”
