The LORD said to Moses:
When an ox or sheep or goat is born, it must remain with its mother for seven days. From the eighth day on it will be acceptable as an offering, a food gift for the LORD.
But you will not slaughter an ox or sheep and its offspring on the same day.
When you sacrifice a communal sacrifice of thanksgiving for the LORD, you must sacrifice it so that it will be acceptable on your behalf.
It must be eaten on the same day; you must not leave any of it until morning; I am the LORD.
You must keep my commands and do them; I am the LORD.
You must not make my holy name impure so that I will be treated as holy by the Israelites. I am the LORD—the one who makes you holy
and who is bringing you out of the land of Egypt to be your God; I am the LORD.
