The LORD called to Moses1 and spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting.2 He said,
"Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'When any of you brings an offering to the LORD,3 bring as your offering an animal from either the herd or the flock.43
" 'If the offering is a burnt offering5 from the herd,6 he is to offer a male without defect.7 He must present it at the entrance to the Tent8 of Meeting so that ita will be acceptable9 to the LORD.
He is to lay his hand on the head10 of the burnt offering,11 and it will be accepted12 on his behalf to make atonement13 for him.
He is to slaughter14 the young bull15 before the LORD, and then Aaron's sons16 the priests shall bring the blood and sprinkle it against the altar on all sides17 at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
