31 Since they have treated the LORD's word with contempt and deliberately disobeyed his commands, they must be completely cut off and suffer the consequences of their guilt."
32 One day while the people of Israel were in the wilderness, they caught a man gathering wood on the Sabbath day.
33 He was apprehended and taken before Moses, Aaron, and the rest of the community.
34 They held him in custody because they did not know what to do with him.
35 Then the LORD said to Moses, "The man must be put to death! The whole community must stone him outside the camp."
36 So the whole community took the man outside the camp and stoned him to death, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.
37 And the LORD said to Moses,
38 "Say to the people of Israel: `Throughout the generations to come you must make tassels for the hems of your clothing and attach the tassels at each corner with a blue cord.
39 The tassels will remind you of the commands of the LORD, and that you are to obey his commands instead of following your own desires and going your own ways, as you are prone to do.
40 The tassels will help you remember that you must obey all my commands and be holy to your God.
41 I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt that I might be your God. I am the LORD your God!' "
