Numbers 19:1-11 NRS

1 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying:
2 This is a statute of the law that the Lord has commanded: Tell the Israelites to bring you a red heifer without defect, in which there is no blemish and on which no yoke has been laid.
3 You shall give it to the priest Eleazar, and it shall be taken outside the camp and slaughtered in his presence.
4 The priest Eleazar shall take some of its blood with his finger and sprinkle it seven times towards the front of the tent of meeting.
5 Then the heifer shall be burned in his sight; its skin, its flesh, and its blood, with its dung, shall be burned.
6 The priest shall take cedarwood, hyssop, and crimson material, and throw them into the fire in which the heifer is burning.
7 Then the priest shall wash his clothes and bathe his body in water, and afterwards he may come into the camp; but the priest shall remain unclean until evening.
8 The one who burns the heifer a shall wash his clothes in water and bathe his body in water; he shall remain unclean until evening.
