1 And the Lord said to Moses, 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 Say to the children of Israel, When you have come into the land which I am giving to you for your resting-place, 2 "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'After you enter the land I am giving you as a home
3 And are going to make an offering by fire to the Lord, a burned offering or an offering in connection with an oath, or an offering freely given, or at your regular feasts, an offering for a sweet smell to the Lord, from the herd or the flock: 3 and you present to the LORD offerings made by fire, from the herd or the flock, as an aroma pleasing to the LORD--whether burnt offerings or sacrifices, for special vows or freewill offerings or festival offerings--
4 Then let him who is making his offering, give to the Lord a meal offering of a tenth part of a measure of the best meal mixed with a fourth part of a hin of oil: 4 then the one who brings his offering shall present to the LORD a grain offering of a tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with a quarter of a hin of oil.
5 And for the drink offering, you are to give with the burned offering or other offering, the fourth part of a hin of wine for every lamb. 5 With each lamb for the burnt offering or the sacrifice, prepare a quarter of a hin of wine as a drink offering.
6 Or for a male sheep, give as a meal offering two tenth parts of a measure of the best meal mixed with a third part of a hin of oil: 6 " 'With a ram prepare a grain offering of two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with a third of a hin of oil,
7 And for the drink offering give a third part of a hin of wine, for a sweet smell to the Lord. 7 and a third of a hin of wine as a drink offering. Offer it as an aroma pleasing to the LORD.
8 And when you make ready a young ox for a burned or other offering, or for the effecting of an oath, or for peace-offerings to the Lord: 8 " 'When you prepare a young bull as a burnt offering or sacrifice, for a special vow or a fellowship offering to the LORD,
9 Then with the ox give a meal offering of three tenth parts of a measure of the best meal mixed with half a hin of oil. 9 bring with the bull a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with half a hin of oil.
10 And for the drink offering: give half a hin of wine, for an offering made by fire for a sweet smell to the Lord. 10 Also bring half a hin of wine as a drink offering. It will be an offering made by fire, an aroma pleasing to the LORD.
11 This is to be done for every young ox and for every male sheep or he-lamb or young goat. 11 Each bull or ram, each lamb or young goat, is to be prepared in this manner.
12 Whatever number you make ready, so you are to do for every one. 12 Do this for each one, for as many as you prepare.
13 All those who are Israelites by birth are to do these things in this way, when giving an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord. 13 " 'Everyone who is native-born must do these things in this way when he brings an offering made by fire as an aroma pleasing to the LORD.
14 And if a man from another country or any other person living among you, through all your generations, has the desire to give an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord, let him do as you do. 14 For the generations to come, whenever an alien or anyone else living among you presents an offering made by fire as an aroma pleasing to the LORD, he must do exactly as you do.
15 There is to be one law for you and for the man of another country living with you, one law for ever from generation to generation; as you are, so is he to be before the Lord. 15 The community is to have the same rules for you and for the alien living among you; this is a lasting ordinance for the generations to come. You and the alien shall be the same before the LORD:
16 The law and the rule are to be the same for you and for those from other lands living with you. 16 The same laws and regulations will apply both to you and to the alien living among you.' "
17 And the Lord said to Moses, 17 The LORD said to Moses,
18 Say to the children of Israel, When you come into the land where I am guiding you, 18 "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'When you enter the land to which I am taking you
19 Then, when you take for your food the produce of the land, you are to give an offering lifted up before the Lord. 19 and you eat the food of the land, present a portion as an offering to the LORD.
20 Of the first of your rough meal you are to give a cake for a lifted offering, lifting it up before the Lord as the offering of the grain-floor is lifted up. 20 Present a cake from the first of your ground meal and present it as an offering from the threshing floor.
21 From generation to generation you are to give to the Lord a lifted offering from the first of your rough meal. 21 Throughout the generations to come you are to give this offering to the LORD from the first of your ground meal.
22 And if in error you go against any of these laws which the Lord has given to Moses, 22 " 'Now if you unintentionally fail to keep any of these commands the LORD gave Moses--
23 All the laws which the Lord has given you by the hand of Moses, from the day when the Lord gave them, and ever after from generation to generation; 23 any of the LORD's commands to you through him, from the day the LORD gave them and continuing through the generations to come--
24 Then, if the wrong is done in error, without the knowledge of the meeting of the people, let all the meeting give a young ox as a burned offering, a sweet smell to the Lord, with its meal offering and its drink offering, as is ordered in the law, together with a he-goat for a sin-offering. 24 and if this is done unintentionally without the community being aware of it, then the whole community is to offer a young bull for a burnt offering as an aroma pleasing to the LORD, along with its prescribed grain offering and drink offering, and a male goat for a sin offering.
25 So the priest will make the people free from sin, and they will have forgiveness; for it was an error, and they have given their offering made by fire to the Lord, and their sin-offering before the Lord, on account of their error: 25 The priest is to make atonement for the whole Israelite community, and they will be forgiven, for it was not intentional and they have brought to the LORD for their wrong an offering made by fire and a sin offering.
26 And all the meeting of the children of Israel, as well as those from other lands living among them, will have forgiveness; for it was an error on the part of the people. 26 The whole Israelite community and the aliens living among them will be forgiven, because all the people were involved in the unintentional wrong.
27 And if one person does wrong, without being conscious of it, then let him give a she-goat of the first year for a sin-offering. 27 " 'But if just one person sins unintentionally, he must bring a year-old female goat for a sin offering.
28 And the priest will take away the sin of the person who has done wrong, if the wrong was done unconsciously, and he will have forgiveness. 28 The priest is to make atonement before the LORD for the one who erred by sinning unintentionally, and when atonement has been made for him, he will be forgiven.
29 The law in connection with wrong done unconsciously is to be the same for him who is an Israelite by birth and for the man from another country who is living among them. 29 One and the same law applies to everyone who sins unintentionally, whether he is a native-born Israelite or an alien.
30 But the person who does wrong in the pride of his heart, if he is one of you or of another nation by birth, is acting without respect for the Lord, and will be cut off from his people. 30 " 'But anyone who sins defiantly, whether native-born or alien, blasphemes the LORD, and that person must be cut off from his people.
31 Because he had no respect for the word of the Lord, and did not keep his law, that man will be cut off without mercy and his sin will be on him. 31 Because he has despised the LORD's word and broken his commands, that person must surely be cut off; his guilt remains on him.' "
32 Now while the children of Israel were in the waste land, they saw a man who was getting sticks on the Sabbath day. 32 While the Israelites were in the desert, a man was found gathering wood on the Sabbath day.
33 And those who saw him getting sticks took him before Moses and Aaron and all the people. 33 Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and the whole assembly,
34 And they had him shut up, because they had no directions about what was to be done with him. 34 and they kept him in custody, because it was not clear what should be done to him.
35 Then the Lord said to Moses, Certainly the man is to be put to death: let him be stoned by all the people outside the tent-circle. 35 Then the LORD said to Moses, "The man must die. The whole assembly must stone him outside the camp."
36 So all the people took him outside the tent-circle and he was stoned to death there, as the Lord gave orders to Moses. 36 So the assembly took him outside the camp and stoned him to death, as the LORD commanded Moses.
37 And the Lord said to Moses, 37 The LORD said to Moses,
38 Say to the children of Israel that through all their generations they are to put on the edges of their robes an ornament of twisted threads, and in every ornament a blue cord; 38 "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'Throughout the generations to come you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel.
39 So that, looking on these ornaments, you may keep in mind the orders of the Lord and do them; and not be guided by the desires of your hearts and eyes, through which you have been untrue to me: 39 You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the LORD, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by going after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes.
40 And that you may keep in mind all my orders and do them and be holy to your God. 40 Then you will remember to obey all my commands and will be consecrated to your God.
41 I am the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt, so that I might be your God: I am the Lord your God. 41 I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt to be your God. I am the LORD your God.' "
