1 Thena Yahweh called to Moses and spoke to him from the tent of assembly, saying, 2 "Speak to the {Israelites},b and say to them, 'When a personc from you presents an offering to Yahweh, you shall present your offering from domestic animals, from the cattled or from the flock.e 3 If his offering [is] a burnt offering from the cattle,f [then] he must presentg an unblemished male; he must present it at the door of the tent of assembly for his acceptance {before}h Yahweh. 4 " 'Hei must lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering and it will be acceptedj for him [in order] to make atonement for him. 5 Hek must slaughter {the young bull}l {before}m Yahweh, thenn Aaron's sons, the priests, will present the blood and sprinkle the blood all around the altar that [is] [at] the door of the tent of assembly. 6 Theno he must remove [the] skin [of] the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces. 7 The sons ofp Aaron the priest will put fire on the altar and arrange the wood on the fire. 8 Thenq Aaron's sons, the priests, will arrange the pieces [of meat],r the head, and the suet on the wood that [is] on the fire that [is] on the altar. 9 Thens he must wash its inner partst and its lower leg bones with water, and the priest will turn into smoke the whole [animal] on the altar [as] a burnt offering [by] fire, [as] an appeasing fragrance for Yahweh. 10 " 'But if his offering [is] from the flock,u from the sheep or from the goats for a burnt offering, he must presentv an unblemishedw male. 11 Hex must slaughter it on the north side of the altar {before}y Yahweh; thenz Aaron's sons, the priests, will sprinkle its blood all around the altar. 12 Thenaa he must cut it into pieces [along] with its head and its suet; and the priest will arrange them on the wood that [is] on the fire that [is] on the altar. 13 Thenbb he must wash the inner partscc and the lower leg bones with water and the priest shall present the whole [animal] and will turn [it]dd into smoke on the altar; it [is] a burnt offering [by] fire [as] an appeasing fragrance for Yahweh. 14 " 'But if his offering for Yahweh is a burnt offering from the birds, [then] he must present his offering from the turtledoves or from {the young doves}.ee 15 The priestff will present it at the altar and must wring off its head and turn [it] into smoke on the altar, and its blood will be drained out on the wallgg of the altar. 16 Hehh must remove its crop with its plumage and throw it to the east beside the altar on the place of the fatty ashes. 17 Thenii he must tear it apart by its wings [but] must not sever [it]; thenjj the priest will turn it into smoke on the altar. It [is] a burnt offering [by] fire [as] an appeasing fragrance for Yahweh.'"
