The Lord summoned Moses and spoke to him from the tent of meeting, saying:
Speak to the people of Israel and say to them: When any of you bring an offering of livestock to the Lord, you shall bring your offering from the herd or from the flock.
If the offering is a burnt offering from the herd, you shall offer a male without blemish; you shall bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting, for acceptance in your behalf before the Lord.
You shall lay your hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it shall be acceptable in your behalf as atonement for you.
The bull shall be slaughtered before the Lord; and Aaron's sons the priests shall offer the blood, dashing the blood against all sides of the altar that is at the entrance of the tent of meeting.
The burnt offering shall be flayed and cut up into its parts.
The sons of the priest Aaron shall put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire.
Aaron's sons the priests shall arrange the parts, with the head and the suet, on the wood that is on the fire on the altar;
but its entrails and its legs shall be washed with water. Then the priest shall turn the whole into smoke on the altar as a burnt offering, an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the Lord.
If your gift for a burnt offering is from the flock, from the sheep or goats, your offering shall be a male without blemish.
