1 The LORD called to Moses from the Tabernacle and said to him, 1 The LORD called to Moses and spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting. He said,
2 "Give the following instructions to the Israelites: Whenever you present offerings to the LORD, you must bring animals from your flocks and herds." 2 "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'When any of you brings an offering to the LORD, bring as your offering an animal from either the herd or the flock.
3 "If your sacrifice for a whole burnt offering is from the herd, bring a bull with no physical defects to the entrance of the Tabernacle so it will be accepted by the LORD. 3 " 'If the offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he is to offer a male without defect. He must present it at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting so that it will be acceptable to the LORD.
4 Lay your hand on its head so the LORD will accept it as your substitute, thus making atonement for you. 4 He is to lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted on his behalf to make atonement for him.
5 Then slaughter the animal in the LORD's presence, and Aaron's sons, the priests, will present the blood by sprinkling it against the sides of the altar that stands in front of the Tabernacle. 5 He is to slaughter the young bull before the LORD, and then Aaron's sons the priests shall bring the blood and sprinkle it against the altar on all sides at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.

9 But the internal organs and legs must first be washed with water. Then the priests will burn the entire sacrifice on the altar. It is a whole burnt offering made by fire, very pleasing to the LORD." 9 He is to wash the inner parts and the legs with water, and the priest is to burn all of it on the altar. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.

14 "If you bring a bird as a burnt offering to the LORD, choose either a turtledove or a young pigeon. 14 " 'If the offering to the LORD is a burnt offering of birds, he is to offer a dove or a young pigeon.
15 The priest will take the bird to the altar, twist off its head, and burn the head on the altar. He must then let its blood drain out against the sides of the altar. 15 The priest shall bring it to the altar, wring off the head and burn it on the altar; its blood shall be drained out on the side of the altar.

It is a whole burnt offering made by fire, very pleasing to the LORD." 17 He shall tear it open by the wings, not severing it completely, and then the priest shall burn it on the wood that is on the fire on the altar. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.
