Introduction to the Sacrificial Regulations

1:1 Then the Lord called to Moses and spoke to him 1  from the Meeting Tent: 2  1:2 Speak to the Israelites and tell them, ‘When 3  someone 4  among you presents an offering 5  to the Lord, 6  you 7  must present your offering from the domesticated animals, either from the herd or from the flock. 8 

Burnt Offering Regulations: Animal from the Herd

1:3‘If his offering is a burnt offering 9  from the herd he must present it as a flawless male; he must present it at the entrance 10  of the Meeting Tent for its 11  acceptance before the Lord. 1:4 He must lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted for him to make atonement 12  on his behalf. 1:5 Then the one presenting the offering 13  must slaughter the bull 14  before the Lord, and the sons of Aaron, the priests, must present the blood and splash 15  the blood against the sides of the altar which is at the entrance of the Meeting Tent. 1:6 Next, the one presenting the offering 16  must skin the burnt offering and cut it into parts, 1:7 and the sons of Aaron, the priest, 17  must put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire. 1:8 Then the sons of Aaron, the priests, must arrange the parts with the head and the suet 18  on the wood that is in the fire on the altar. 19  1:9 Finally, the one presenting the offering 20  must wash its entrails and its legs in water and the priest must offer all of it up in smoke on the altar 21 it is 22  a burnt offering, a gift 23  of a soothing aroma to the Lord.

Additional Grain Offering Regulations

2:11‘No grain offering which you present to the Lord can be made with yeast, 54  for you must not offer up in smoke any yeast or honey as a gift to the Lord. 55  2:12 You can present them to the Lord as an offering of first fruit, 56  but they must not go up to the altar for a soothing aroma. 2:13 Moreover, you must season every one of your grain offerings with salt; you must not allow the salt of the covenant of your God to be missing from your grain offering 57 on every one of your grain offerings you must present salt.

2:14‘If you present a grain offering of first ripe grain to the Lord, you must present your grain offering of first ripe grain as soft kernels roasted in fire – crushed bits of fresh grain. 58  2:15 And you must put olive oil on it and set frankincense on it – it is a grain offering. 2:16 Then the priest must offer its memorial portion up in smoke – some of its crushed bits, some of its olive oil, in addition to all of its frankincense – it is 59  a gift to the Lord.

Peace Offering Regulations: Animal from the Herd

3:1‘Now if his offering is a peace offering sacrifice, 60  if he presents an offering from the herd, he must present before the Lord a flawless male or a female. 61  3:2 He must lay his hand on the head of his offering and slaughter it at the entrance of the Meeting Tent, and the sons of Aaron, the priests, must splash the blood against the altar’s sides. 62  3:3 Then the one presenting the offering 63  must present a gift to the Lord from the peace offering sacrifice: He must remove the fat that covers the entrails and all the fat that surrounds the entrails, 64  3:4 the two kidneys with the fat on their sinews, and the protruding lobe on the liver (which he is to remove along with the kidneys). 65  3:5 Then the sons of Aaron must offer it up in smoke on the altar atop the burnt offering that is on the wood in the fire as a gift of a soothing aroma to the Lord. 66

Sin Offering Regulations

4:1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 77  4:2 Tell the Israelites, ‘When a person sins by straying unintentionally 78  from any of the Lord’s commandments which must not be violated, and violates any 79  one of them 80 

For the Priest

4:3‘If the high priest 81  sins so that the people are guilty, 82  on account of the sin he has committed he must present a flawless young bull to the Lord 83  for a sin offering. 84  4:4 He must bring the bull to the entrance of the Meeting Tent before the Lord, lay his hand on the head of the bull, and slaughter the bull before the Lord. 4:5 Then that high priest must take some of the blood 85  of the bull and bring it to the Meeting Tent. 4:6 The priest must dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle 86  some of it 87  seven times before the Lord toward 88  the front of the veil-canopy 89  of the sanctuary. 4:7 The priest must put some of the blood on the horns of the altar of fragrant incense that is before the Lord in the Meeting Tent, and all the rest of the bull’s blood he must pour out at the base of the altar of burnt offering that is at the entrance of the Meeting Tent.

4:8‘Then he must take up all the fat from the sin offering bull: 90  the fat covering the entrails 91  and all the fat surrounding the entrails, 92  4:9 the two kidneys with the fat on their sinews, and the protruding lobe on the liver (which he is to remove along with the kidneys) 93  4:10 – just as it is taken from the ox of the peace offering sacrifice 94  – and the priest must offer them up in smoke on the altar of burnt offering. 4:11 But the hide of the bull, all its flesh along with its head and its legs, its entrails, and its dung 4:12 all the rest of the bull 95 he must bring outside the camp 96  to a ceremonially clean place, 97  to the fatty ash pile, 98  and he must burn 99  it on a wood fire; it must be burned on the fatty ash pile.

For the Whole Congregation

4:13‘If the whole congregation of Israel strays unintentionally 100  and the matter is not noticed by 101  the assembly, and they violate one of the Lord’s commandments, which must not be violated, 102  so they become guilty, 4:14 the assembly must present a young bull for a sin offering when the sin they have committed 103  becomes known. They must bring it before the Meeting Tent, 4:15 the elders of the congregation must lay their hands on the head of the bull before the Lord, and someone must slaughter 104  the bull before the Lord. 4:16 Then the high priest 105  must bring some of the blood of the bull to the Meeting Tent, 4:17 and that priest must dip his finger in the blood 106  and sprinkle 107  some of the blood seven times 108  before the Lord toward 109  the front of the veil-canopy. 110  4:18 He must put some of the blood on the horns of the altar 111  which is before the Lord in the Meeting Tent, and all the rest of the blood he must pour out at the base of the altar of burnt offering that is at the entrance of the Meeting Tent.

4:19‘Then the priest 112  must take all its fat 113  and offer the fat 114  up in smoke on the altar. 4:20 He must do with the rest of the bull just as he did with the bull of the sin offering; this is what he must do with it. 115  So the priest will make atonement 116  on their behalf and they will be forgiven. 117  4:21 He 118  must bring the rest of the bull outside the camp 119  and burn it just as he burned the first bull – it is the sin offering of the assembly.

For the Leader

4:22‘Whenever 120  a leader, by straying unintentionally, 121  sins and violates one of the commandments of the Lord his God which must not be violated, 122  and he pleads guilty, 4:23 or his sin that he committed 123  is made known to him, 124  he must bring a flawless male goat as his offering. 125  4:24 He must lay his hand on the head of the male goat and slaughter 126  it in the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered before the Lordit is a sin offering. 4:25 Then the priest must take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and he must pour out the rest of its blood at the base of the altar of burnt offering. 4:26 Then the priest 127  must offer all of its fat up in smoke on the altar like the fat of the peace offering sacrifice. So the priest will make atonement 128  on his behalf for 129  his sin and he will be forgiven. 130 

For the Common Person

4:27‘If an ordinary individual 131  sins by straying unintentionally 132  when he violates one of the Lord’s commandments which must not be violated, 133  and he pleads guilty 4:28 or his sin that he committed 134  is made known to him, 135  he must bring a flawless female goat 136  as his offering for the sin 137  that he committed. 4:29 He must lay his hand on the head of the sin offering and slaughter 138  the sin offering in the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered. 4:30 Then the priest must take some of its blood with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and he must pour out all the rest of its blood at the base of the altar. 4:31 Then he must remove all of its fat (just as fat was removed from the peace offering sacrifice) and the priest must offer it up in smoke on the altar for a soothing aroma to the Lord. So the priest will make atonement 139  on his behalf and he will be forgiven. 140 

4:32‘But if he brings a sheep as his offering, for a sin offering, he must bring a flawless female. 4:33 He must lay his hand on the head of the sin offering and slaughter it for a sin offering in the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered. 4:34 Then the priest must take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and he must pour out all the rest of its blood at the base of the altar. 4:35 Then the one who brought the offering 141  must remove all its fat (just as the fat of the sheep is removed from the peace offering sacrifice) and the priest must offer them up in smoke on the altar on top of the other gifts of the Lord. So the priest will make atonement 142  on his behalf for his sin which he has committed and he will be forgiven. 143 

Additional Sin Offering Regulations

5:1‘When a person sins 144  in that he hears a public curse against one who fails to testify 145  and he is a witness (he either saw or knew what had happened 146 ) and he does not make it known, 147  then he will bear his punishment for iniquity. 148  5:2 Or when there is 149  a person who touches anything ceremonially 150  unclean, whether the carcass of an unclean wild animal, or the carcass of an unclean domesticated animal, or the carcass of an unclean creeping thing, even if he did not realize it, 151  but he himself has become unclean and is guilty; 152  5:3 or when he touches human uncleanness with regard to anything by which he can become unclean, 153  even if he did not realize it, but he himself has later come to know it and is guilty; 5:4 or when a person swears an oath, speaking thoughtlessly 154  with his lips, whether to do evil or to do good, with regard to anything which the individual might speak thoughtlessly in an oath, even if he did not realize it, but he himself has later come to know it and is guilty with regard to one of these oaths 155  5:5 when an individual becomes guilty with regard to one of these things 156  he must confess how he has sinned, 157  5:6 and he must bring his penalty for guilt 158  to the Lord for his sin that he has committed, a female from the flock, whether a female sheep or a female goat, for a sin offering. So the priest will make atonement 159  on his behalf for 160  his sin.

5:7‘If he cannot afford an animal from the flock, 161  he must bring his penalty for guilt for his sin that he has committed, 162  two turtledoves or two young pigeons, 163  to the Lord, one for a sin offering and one for a burnt offering. 5:8 He must bring them to the priest and present first the one that is for a sin offering. The priest 164  must pinch 165  its head at the nape of its neck, but must not sever the head from the body. 166  5:9 Then he must sprinkle 167  some of the blood of the sin offering on the wall of the altar, and the remainder of the blood 168  must be squeezed out at the base of the altar – it is a sin offering. 5:10 The second bird 169  he must make a burnt offering according to the standard regulation. 170  So the priest will make atonement 171  on behalf of this person for 172  his sin which he has committed, and he will be forgiven. 173 

5:11‘If he cannot afford 174  two turtledoves or two young pigeons, 175  he must bring as his offering for his sin which he has committed 176  a tenth of an ephah 177  of choice wheat flour 178  for a sin offering. He must not place olive oil on it and he must not put frankincense on it, because it is a sin offering. 5:12 He must bring it to the priest and the priest must scoop out from it a handful as its memorial portion 179  and offer it up in smoke on the altar on top of the other gifts of the Lordit is a sin offering. 5:13 So the priest will make atonement 180  on his behalf for his sin which he has committed by doing one of these things, 181  and he will be forgiven. 182  The remainder of the offering 183  will belong to the priest like the grain offering.’ 184 

Guilt Offering Regulations: Known Trespass

5:14 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 185  5:15 When a person commits a trespass 186  and sins by straying unintentionally 187  from the regulations about the Lord’s holy things, 188  then he must bring his penalty for guilt 189  to the Lord, a flawless ram from the flock, convertible into silver shekels according to the standard of the sanctuary shekel, 190  for a guilt offering. 191  5:16 And whatever holy thing he violated 192  he must restore and must add one fifth to it and give it to the priest. So the priest will make atonement 193  on his behalf with the guilt offering ram and he will be forgiven.” 194 

Unknown trespass

5:17If a person sins and violates any of the Lord’s commandments which must not be violated 195  (although he did not know it at the time, 196  but later realizes he is guilty), then he will bear his punishment for iniquity 197  5:18 and must bring a flawless ram from the flock, convertible into silver shekels, 198  for a guilt offering to the priest. So the priest will make atonement 199  on his behalf for his error which he committed 200  (although he himself had not known it) and he will be forgiven. 201  5:19 It is a guilt offering; he was surely guilty before the Lord.”

Trespass by Deception and False Oath

6:1 202  Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 203  6:2 When a person sins and commits a trespass 204  against the Lord by deceiving his fellow citizen 205  in regard to something held in trust, or a pledge, or something stolen, or by extorting something from his fellow citizen, 206  6:3 or has found something lost and denies it and swears falsely 207  concerning any one of the things that someone might do to sin 208  6:4 when it happens that he sins and he is found guilty, 209  then he must return whatever he had stolen, or whatever he had extorted, or the thing that he had held in trust, 210  or the lost thing that he had found, 6:5 or anything about which he swears falsely. 211  He must restore it in full 212  and add one fifth to it; he must give it to its owner when he is found guilty. 213  6:6 Then he must bring his guilt offering to the Lord, a flawless ram from the flock, convertible into silver shekels, 214  for a guilt offering to the priest. 6:7 So the priest will make atonement 215  on his behalf before the Lord and he will be forgiven 216  for whatever he has done to become guilty.” 217 

Sacrificial Instructions for the Priests: The Burnt Offering

6:8 218  Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 219  6:9 Command Aaron and his sons, ‘This is the law of the burnt offering. The burnt offering is to remain on the hearth 220  on the altar all night until morning, and the fire of the altar must be kept burning on it. 221  6:10 Then the priest must put on his linen robe and must put linen leggings 222  over his bare flesh, and he must take up the fatty ashes of the burnt offering that the fire consumed on the altar, 223  and he must place them 224  beside the altar. 6:11 Then he must take off his clothes and put on other clothes, and he must bring the fatty ashes outside the camp to a ceremonially 225  clean place, 6:12 but the fire which is on the altar must be kept burning on it. 226  It must not be extinguished. So the priest must kindle wood on it morning by morning, and he must arrange the burnt offering on it and offer the fat of the peace offering up in smoke on it. 6:13 A continual fire must be kept burning on the altar. It must not be extinguished.

The Grain Offering of the Common Person

6:14‘This is the law of the grain offering. The sons of Aaron are to present it 227  before the Lord in front of the altar, 6:15 and the priest 228  must take up with his hand some of the choice wheat flour of the grain offering 229  and some of its olive oil, and all of the frankincense that is on the grain offering, and he must offer its memorial portion 230  up in smoke on the altar 231  as a soothing aroma to the Lord. 232  6:16 Aaron and his sons are to eat what is left over from it. It must be eaten unleavened in a holy place; they are to eat it in the courtyard of the Meeting Tent. 6:17 It must not be baked with yeast. 233  I have given it as their portion from my gifts. It is most holy, 234  like the sin offering and the guilt offering. 6:18 Every male among the sons of Aaron may eat it. It is a perpetual allotted portion 235  throughout your generations 236  from the gifts of the Lord. Anyone who touches these gifts 237  must be holy.’ 238 

The Grain Offering of the Priests

6:19 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 239  6:20 This is the offering of Aaron and his sons which they must present to the Lord on the day when he is anointed: a tenth of an ephah 240  of choice wheat flour 241  as a continual grain offering, half of it in the morning and half of it in the evening. 6:21 It must be made with olive oil on a griddle and you must bring it well soaked, 242  so you must present a grain offering of broken pieces 243  as a soothing aroma to the Lord. 6:22 The high priest who succeeds him 244  from among his sons must do it. It is a perpetual statute; it must be offered up in smoke as a whole offering to the Lord. 6:23 Every grain offering of a priest must be a whole offering; it must not be eaten.”

The Sin Offering

6:24 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 245  6:25 Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is the law of the sin offering. In the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered the sin offering must be slaughtered before the Lord. It is most holy. 246  6:26 The priest who offers it for sin is to eat it. It must be eaten in a holy place, in the court of the Meeting Tent. 6:27 Anyone who touches its meat must be holy, and whoever spatters some of its blood on a garment, 247  you must wash 248  whatever he spatters it on in a holy place. 6:28 Any clay vessel it is boiled in must be broken, and if it was boiled in a bronze vessel, then that vessel 249  must be rubbed out and rinsed in water. 6:29 Any male among the priests may eat it. It is most holy. 250  6:30 But any sin offering from which some of its blood is brought into the Meeting Tent to make atonement in the sanctuary must not be eaten. It must be burned up in the fire. 251 

The Guilt Offering

7:1‘This is the law of the guilt offering. It is most holy. 7:2 In the place where they slaughter the burnt offering they must slaughter the guilt offering, and the officiating priest 252  must splash 253  the blood against the altar’s sides. 7:3 Then the one making the offering 254  must present all its fat: the fatty tail, the fat covering the entrails, 7:4 the two kidneys and the fat on their sinews, and the protruding lobe on the liver (which he must remove along with the kidneys). 255  7:5 Then the priest must offer them up in smoke on the altar 256  as a gift to the Lord. It is a guilt offering. 7:6 Any male among the priests may eat it. It must be eaten in a holy place. It is most holy. 257  7:7 The law is the same for the sin offering and the guilt offering; 258  it belongs to the priest who makes atonement with it.

Priestly Portions of Burnt and Grain Offerings

7:8‘As for the priest who presents someone’s burnt offering, the hide of that burnt offering which he presented belongs to him. 7:9 Every grain offering which is baked in the oven or 259  made in the pan 260  or on the griddle belongs to the priest who presented it. 7:10 Every grain offering, whether mixed with olive oil or dry, belongs to all the sons of Aaron, each one alike. 261 

The Peace Offering

7:11‘This is the law of the peace offering sacrifice which he 262  is to present to the Lord. 7:12 If he presents it on account of thanksgiving, 263  along with the thank offering sacrifice he must present unleavened loaves mixed with olive oil, unleavened wafers smeared with olive oil, 264  and well soaked 265  ring-shaped loaves made of choice wheat flour 266  mixed with olive oil. 7:13 He must present this grain offering 267  in addition to ring-shaped loaves of leavened bread which regularly accompany 268  the sacrifice of his thanksgiving peace offering. 7:14 He must present one of each kind of grain offering 269  as a contribution offering 270  to the Lord; it belongs to the priest who splashes the blood of the peace offering. 7:15 The meat of his 271  thanksgiving peace offering must be eaten on the day of his offering; he must not set any of it aside until morning.

7:16‘If his offering is a votive or freewill sacrifice, 272  it may be eaten on the day he presents his sacrifice, and also the leftovers from it may be eaten on the next day, 273  7:17 but the leftovers from the meat of the sacrifice must be burned up in the fire 274  on the third day. 7:18 If some of the meat of his peace offering sacrifice is ever eaten on the third day it will not be accepted; it will not be accounted to the one who presented it, since it is spoiled, 275  and the person who eats from it will bear his punishment for iniquity. 276  7:19 The meat which touches anything ceremonially 277  unclean must not be eaten; it must be burned up in the fire. As for ceremonially clean meat, 278  everyone who is ceremonially clean may eat the meat. 7:20 The person who eats meat from the peace offering sacrifice which belongs to the Lord while his uncleanness persists 279  will be cut off from his people. 280  7:21 When a person touches anything unclean (whether human uncleanness, or an unclean animal, or an unclean detestable creature) 281  and eats some of the meat of the peace offering sacrifice which belongs to the Lord, that person will be cut off from his people.’ 282 

Sacrificial Instructions for the Common People: Fat and Blood

7:22 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 283  7:23 Tell the Israelites, ‘You must not eat any fat of an ox, sheep, or goat. 7:24 Moreover, the fat of an animal that has died of natural causes 284  and the fat of an animal torn by beasts may be used for any other purpose, 285  but you must certainly never eat it. 7:25 If anyone eats fat from the animal from which he presents a gift to the Lord, that person will be cut off from his people. 286  7:26 And you must not eat any blood of the birds or the domesticated land animals in any of the places where you live. 287  7:27 Any person who eats any blood – that person will be cut off from his people.’ 288 

Priestly Portions of Peace Offerings

7:28 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 289  7:29 Tell the Israelites, ‘The one who presents his peace offering sacrifice to the Lord must bring his offering to the Lord from his peace offering sacrifice. 7:30 With his own hands he must bring the Lord’s gifts. He must bring the fat with the breast 290  to wave the breast as a wave offering before the Lord, 291  7:31 and the priest must offer the fat up in smoke on the altar, but the breast will belong to Aaron and his sons. 7:32 The right thigh you must give as a contribution offering 292  to the priest from your peace offering sacrifices. 7:33 The one from Aaron’s sons who presents the blood of the peace offering and fat will have the right thigh as his share, 7:34 for the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the contribution offering I have taken from the Israelites out of their peace offering sacrifices and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons from the people of Israel as a perpetual allotted portion.’ 293 

7:35 This is the allotment of Aaron and the allotment of his sons from the Lord’s gifts on the day Moses 294  presented them to serve as priests 295  to the Lord. 7:36 This is what the Lord commanded to give to them from the Israelites on the day Moses 296  anointed them 297  – a perpetual allotted portion throughout their generations. 298
