Numbers 28:3-8

3 And you shall say to them, This is the offering by fire that you shall offer to the Lord: two male lambs a year old without blemish, daily, as a regular offering.
4 One lamb you shall offer in the morning, and the other lamb you shall offer at twilight;
5 also one-tenth of an ephah of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with one-fourth of a hin of beaten oil.
6 It is a regular burnt offering, ordained at Mount Sinai for a pleasing odor, an offering by fire to the Lord.
7 Its drink offering shall be one-fourth of a hin for each lamb; in the sanctuary you shall pour out a drink offering of strong drink to the Lord.
8 The other lamb you shall offer at twilight with a grain offering and a drink offering like the one in the morning; you shall offer it as an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to the Lord.

2 Command the Israelites, and say to them: My offering, the food for my offerings by fire, my pleasing odor, you shall take care to offer to me at its appointed time.
3 And you shall say to them, This is the offering by fire that you shall offer to the Lord: two male lambs a year old without blemish, daily, as a regular offering.

5 also one-tenth of an ephah of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with one-fourth of a hin of beaten oil.
6 It is a regular burnt offering, ordained at Mount Sinai for a pleasing odor, an offering by fire to the Lord.
7 Its drink offering shall be one-fourth of a hin for each lamb; in the sanctuary you shall pour out a drink offering of strong drink to the Lord.
8 The other lamb you shall offer at twilight with a grain offering and a drink offering like the one in the morning; you shall offer it as an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to the Lord.
