Other Offerings

1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Speak to the people of Israel. Say to them, 'You are going to enter the land I am giving you as a home. 3 When you do, you will give offerings that are made to the LORD with fire. The animals must come from your herd or flock. The offerings will give a smell that is pleasant to the Lord. They can be either burnt offerings or sacrifices. They can be either for special promises or for feast offerings. Or they can be for offerings you choose to give. 4 " 'With each of the offerings, the one who brings it must give the LORD a grain offering. It must be eight cups of fine flour. It must be mixed with a quart of olive oil. 5 Also prepare a quart of wine as a drink offering. You must give it with each lamb that you bring for the burnt offering or the sacrifice. 6 " 'With a ram prepare a grain offering. It must be 16 cups of fine flour. It must be mixed with two and a half pints of olive oil. 7 You must bring two and a half pints of wine as a drink offering. Offer everything as a smell that is pleasant to the Lord. 8 " 'Suppose you prepare a young bull as a burnt offering or sacrifice. You prepare it to keep a special promise to the Lord. Or you prepare it to give as a friendship offering. 9 Then bring a grain offering with the bull. The grain offering must be 24 cups of fine flour. It must be mixed with two quarts of olive oil. 10 Also bring two quarts of wine as a drink offering. It will be an offering that is made with fire. It will give a smell that is pleasant to the Lord. 11 " 'Each bull or ram must be prepared in the same way. Each lamb or young goat must also be prepared in that way. 12 Do it for each animal. Do it for as many animals as you prepare. 13 " 'Everyone in Israel must do those things in that way. He must do them when he brings an offering that is made with fire. Offerings like that give a smell that is pleasant to the Lord. 14 " 'Everyone must always do what the law requires. It does not matter whether he is an outsider or someone else who is living among you. He must do exactly as you do when he brings an offering that is made with fire. Offerings like that give a smell that is pleasant to the Lord. 15 " 'The community must have the same rules for you and for the outsider who is living among you. That law will last for all time to come. In the sight of the Lord, the law applies to you and the outsider alike. 16 The same laws and rules will apply to you and to the outsider who is living among you.' " 17 The LORD said to Moses, 18 "Speak to the people of Israel. Say to them, 'You are going to enter the land I am taking you to. 19 You will eat its food. When you do, bring part of it as an offering to the Lord. 20 Bring a loaf that is made from the first flour you grind. Give it as an offering from the threshing floor. 21 You must bring the offering to the Lord. You must give it from the first grain you grind. You must do it for all time to come.
