1 The Lord called to Moses and spoke to him from the Meeting Tent, saying, 2 "Tell the people of Israel: 'When you bring an offering to the Lord, bring as your offering an animal from the herd or flock. 3 "'If the offering is a whole burnt offering from the herd, it must be a male that has nothing wrong with it. The person must take the animal to the entrance of the Meeting Tent so that the Lord will accept the offering. 4 He must put his hand on the animal's head, and the Lord will accept it to remove the person's sin so he will belong to God. 5 He must kill the young bull before the Lord, and Aaron's sons, the priests, must bring its blood and sprinkle it on all sides of the altar at the entrance to the Meeting Tent. 6 After that he will skin the animal and cut it into pieces. 7 The priests, when they have put wood and fire on the altar, 8 are to lay the head, the fat, and other pieces on the wood that is on the fire of the altar. 9 The animal's inner organs and legs must be washed with water. Then the priest must burn all the animal's parts on the altar. It is a whole burnt offering, an offering made by fire, and its smell is pleasing to the Lord. 10 "'If the burnt offering is a sheep or a goat from the flock, it must be a male that has nothing wrong with it. 11 The person must kill the animal on the north side of the altar before the Lord, and Aaron's sons, the priests, must sprinkle its blood on all sides of the altar. 12 The person must cut the animal into pieces, and the priest must lay them, with the head and fat, on the wood that is on the fire of the altar. 13 The person must wash the animal's inner organs and legs with water, and then the priest must burn all its parts on the altar. It is a whole burnt offering, an offering made by fire, and its smell is pleasing to the Lord. 14 "'If the whole burnt offering for the Lord is a bird, it must be a dove or a young pigeon. 15 The priest will bring it to the altar and pull off its head, which he will burn on the altar; the bird's blood must be drained out on the side of the altar. 16 The priest must remove the bird's cropn and its contents and throw them on the east side of the altar, where the ashes are. 17 Then he must tear the bird open by its wings without dividing it into two parts. He must burn the bird on the altar, on the wood which is on the fire. It is a whole burnt offering, an offering made by fire, and its smell is pleasing to the Lord.
1 "'When anyone offers a grain offering to the Lord, it must be made from fine flour. The person must pour oil on it, put incense on it, 2 and then take it to Aaron's sons, the priests. The priest must take a handful of the fine flour and oil and all the incense, and burn it on the altar as a memorial portion. It is an offering made by fire, and its smell is pleasing to the Lord. 3 The rest of the grain offering will belong to Aaron and the priests; it is a most holy part of the offerings made by fire to the Lord. 4 "'If you bring a grain offering that was baked in the oven, it must be made from fine flour. It may be loaves made without yeast and mixed with oil, or it may be wafers made without yeast that have oil poured over them. 5 If your grain offering is cooked on a griddle, it must be made, without yeast, of fine flour mixed with oil. 6 Crumble it and pour oil over it; it is a grain offering. 7 If your grain offering is cooked in a pan, it must be made from fine flour and oil. 8 Bring the grain offering made of these things to the Lord. Give it to the priest, and he will take it to the altar. 9 He will take out the memorial portion from the grain offering and burn it on the altar, as an offering made by fire. Its smell is pleasing to the Lord. 10 The rest of the grain offering belongs to Aaron and the priests. It is a most holy part of the offerings made to the Lord by fire. 11 "'Every grain offering you bring to the Lord must be made without yeast, because you must not burn any yeast or honey in an offering made by fire to the Lord. 12 You may bring yeast and honey to the Lord as an offering from the first harvest, but they must not be burned on the altar as a pleasing smell. 13 You must also put salt on all your grain offerings. Salt stands for your agreement with God that will last forever; do not leave it out of your grain offering. You must add salt to all your offerings. 14 "'If you bring a grain offering from the first harvest to the Lord, bring crushed heads of new grain roasted in the fire. 15 Put oil and incense on it; it is a grain offering. 16 The priest will burn the memorial portion of the crushed grain and oil, with the incense on it. It is an offering by fire to the Lord.
1 "'If a person's fellowship offering to the Lord is from the herd, it may be a male or female, but it must have nothing wrong with it. 2 The person must put his hand on the animal's head and kill it at the entrance to the Meeting Tent. Then Aaron's sons, the priests, must sprinkle the blood on all sides of the altar. 3 From the fellowship offering he must make a sacrifice by fire to the Lord. He must offer the fat of the animal's inner organs (both the fat that is in them and that covers them), 4 both kidneys with the fat that is on them near the lower back muscle, and the best part of the liver, which he will remove with the kidneys. 5 Then the priests will burn these parts on the altar, on the whole burnt offering that is on the wood of the fire. It is an offering made by fire, and its smell is pleasing to the Lord. 6 "'If a person's fellowship offering to the Lord is a lamb or a goat, it may be a male or female, but it must have nothing wrong with it. 7 If he offers a lamb, he must bring it before the Lord 8 and put his hand on its head. Then he must kill the animal in front of the Meeting Tent, and the priests must sprinkle its blood on all sides of the altar. 9 From the fellowship offering the person must make a sacrifice by fire to the Lord. He must bring the fat, the whole fat tail cut off close to the backbone, the fat of the inner organs (both the fat that is in them and that covers them), 10 both kidneys with the fat that is on them, near the lower back muscle, and the best part of the liver, which he will remove with the kidneys. 11 Then the priest will burn these parts on the altar as food; it will be an offering made by fire to the Lord. 12 "'If a person's offering is a goat, he must offer it before the Lord 13 and put his hand on its head. Then he must kill it in front of the Meeting Tent, and the priests must sprinkle its blood on all sides of the altar. 14 From this offering the person must make a sacrifice by fire to the Lord. He must offer all the fat of the goat's inner organs (both the fat that is in them and that covers them), 15 both kidneys with the fat that is on them near the lower back muscle, and the best part of the liver, which he will remove with the kidneys. 16 The priest will burn these parts on the altar as food. It is an offering made by fire, and its smell is pleasing to the Lord. All the fat belongs to the Lord. 17 "'This law will continue for people from now on, wherever you live: You must not eat any fat or blood.'"
1 The Lord said to Moses, 2 "Tell the people of Israel this: 'When a person sins by accident and does some things the Lord has commanded not to be done, that person must do these things: 3 "'If the appointed priest sins so that he brings guilt on the people, then he must offer a young bull to the Lord, one that has nothing wrong with it, as a sin offering for the sin he has done. 4 He will bring the bull to the entrance of the Meeting Tent in front of the Lord, put his hand on its head, and kill it before the Lord. 5 Then the appointed priest must bring some of the bull's blood into the Meeting Tent. 6 The priest is to dip his finger into the blood and sprinkle it seven times before the Lord in front of the curtain of the Most Holy Place. 7 The priest must also put some of the blood on the corners of the altar of incense that stands before the Lord in the Meeting Tent. The rest of the blood he must pour out at the bottom of the altar of burnt offering, which is at the entrance of the Meeting Tent. 8 He must remove all the fat from the bull of the sin offering -- the fat on and around the inner organs, 9 both kidneys with the fat that is on them near the lower back muscle, and the best part of the liver which he will remove with the kidneys. 10 (He must do this in the same way the fat is removed from the bull of the fellowship offering.) Then the priest must burn the animal parts on the altar of burnt offering. 11 But the priest must carry off the skin of the bull and all its meat, along with the rest of the bull -- its head, legs, intestines, and other inner organs. 12 He must take it outside the camp to the special clean place where the ashes are poured out. He must burn it on a wood fire on the pile of ashes. 13 "'If the whole nation of Israel sins accidentally without knowing it and does something the Lord has commanded not to be done, they are guilty. 14 When they learn about the sin they have done, they must offer a young bull as a sin offering and bring it before the Meeting Tent. 15 The older leaders of the group of people must put their hands on the bull's head before the Lord, and it must be killed before the Lord. 16 Then the appointed priest must bring some of the bull's blood into the Meeting Tent. 17 Dipping his finger in the blood, he must sprinkle it seven times before the Lord in front of the curtain. 18 Then he must put some of the blood on the corners of the altar that is before the Lord in the Meeting Tent. The priest must pour out the rest of the blood at the bottom of the altar of burnt offering, which is at the entrance to the Meeting Tent. 19 He must remove all the fat from the animal and burn it on the altar; 20 he will do the same thing with this bull that he did with the first bull of the sin offering. In this way the priest removes the sins of the people so they will belong to the Lord and be forgiven. 21 Then the priest must carry the bull outside the camp and burn it, just as he did with the first bull. This is the sin offering for the whole community. 22 "'If a ruler sins by accident and does something the Lord his God has commanded must not be done, he is guilty. 23 When he learns about his sin, he must bring a male goat that has nothing wrong with it as his offering. 24 The ruler must put his hand on the goat's head and kill it in the place where they kill the whole burnt offering before the Lord; it is a sin offering. 25 The priest must take some of the blood of the sin offering on his finger and put it on the corners of the altar of burnt offering. He must pour out the rest of the blood at the bottom of the altar of burnt offering. 26 He must burn all the goat's fat on the altar in the same way he burns the fat of the fellowship offerings. In this way the priest removes the ruler's sin so he belongs to the Lord, and the Lord will forgive him. 27 "'If any person in the community sins by accident and does something which the Lord has commanded must not be done, he is guilty. 28 When the person learns about his sin, he must bring a female goat that has nothing wrong with it as an offering for his sin. 29 He must put his hand on the animal's head and kill it at the place of the whole burnt offering. 30 Then the priest must take some of the goat's blood on his finger and put it on the corners of the altar of burnt offering. He must pour out the rest of the goat's blood at the bottom of the altar. 31 Then the priest must remove all the goat's fat in the same way the fat is removed from the fellowship offerings. He must burn it on the altar as a smell pleasing to the Lord. In this way the priest will remove that person's sin so he will belong to the Lord, and the Lord will forgive him. 32 "'If this person brings a lamb as his offering for sin, he must bring a female that has nothing wrong with it. 33 He must put his hand on the animal's head and kill it as a sin offering in the place where the whole burnt offering is killed. 34 The priest must take some of the blood from the sin offering on his finger and put it on the corners of the altar of burnt offering. He must pour out the rest of the lamb's blood at the bottom of the altar. 35 Then the priest must remove all the lamb's fat in the same way that the lamb's fat is removed from the fellowship offerings. He must burn the pieces on the altar on top of the offerings made by fire for the Lord. In this way the priest will remove that person's sins so he will belong to the Lord, and the Lord will forgive him.
