View In My Bible
3 " 'If the offering is a burnt offering1 from the herd,2 he is to offer a male without defect.3 He must present it at the entrance to the Tent4 of Meeting so that ita will be acceptable5 to the LORD. 4 He is to lay his hand on the head6 of the burnt offering,7 and it will be accepted8 on his behalf to make atonement9 for him. 5 He is to slaughter10 the young bull11 before the LORD, and then Aaron's sons12 the priests shall bring the blood and sprinkle it against the altar on all sides13 at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. 6 He is to skin14 the burnt offering and cut it into pieces.15 7 The sons of Aaron the priest are to put fire on the altar and arrange wood16 on the fire. 8 Then Aaron's sons the priests shall arrange the pieces, including the head and the fat,17 on the burning wood18 that is on the altar. 9 He is to wash the inner parts and the legs with water,19 and the priest is to burn all of it20 on the altar.21 It is a burnt offering,22 an offering made by fire,23 an aroma pleasing to the LORD.24 10 " 'If the offering is a burnt offering from the flock, from either the sheep25 or the goats,26 he is to offer a male without defect. 11 He is to slaughter it at the north side of the altar27 before the LORD, and Aaron's sons the priests shall sprinkle its blood against the altar on all sides.28 12 He is to cut it into pieces, and the priest shall arrange them, including the head and the fat,29 on the burning wood that is on the altar. 13 He is to wash the inner parts and the legs with water,30 and the priest is to bring all of it and burn it31 on the altar.32 It is a burnt offering,33 an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD. 14 " 'If the offering to the LORD is a burnt offering of birds, he is to offer a dove or a young pigeon.34 15 The priest shall bring it to the altar, wring off the head35 and burn it on the altar; its blood shall be drained out on the side of the altar.36 16 He is to remove the crop with its contentsb and throw it to the east side of the altar, where the ashes37 are. 17 He shall tear it open by the wings, not severing it completely,38 and then the priest shall burn it on the wood39 that is on the fire on the altar. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.
