Numbers 15:1 In-Context

1 The Lord instructed Moses:
2 "Speak to the Israelites and tell them: When you enter the land I am giving you to settle in,
3 and you make a fire offering to the Lord from the herd or flock-either a burnt offering or a sacrifice, to fulfill a vow, or as a freewill offering, or at your appointed festivals-to produce a pleasing aroma for the Lord,
4 the one presenting his offering to the Lord must also present a grain offering of two quarts of fine flour mixed with a quart of oil.
5 Prepare a quart of wine as a drink offering with the burnt offering or sacrifice of each lamb.
