Bible: Num 15:2-16

15:2 Speak to the Israelites and tell them, ‘When you enter the land where you are to live, 1  which I am giving you, 2  15:3 and you make an offering by fire to the Lord from the herd or from the flock (whether a burnt offering or a sacrifice for discharging a vow or as a freewill offering or in your solemn feasts) to create a pleasing aroma to the Lord, 15:4 then the one who presents his offering to the Lord must bring 3  a grain offering of one-tenth of an ephah of finely ground flour mixed with one fourth of a hin of olive oil. 4  15:5 You must also prepare one-fourth of a hin of wine for a drink offering 5  with the burnt offering or the sacrifice for each lamb. 6  15:6 Or for a ram, you must prepare as a grain offering two-tenths of an ephah of finely ground flour mixed with one-third of a hin of olive oil, 15:7 and for a drink offering you must offer one-third of a hin of wine as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. 15:8 And when you prepare a young bull as a burnt offering or a sacrifice for discharging a vow or as a peace offering to the Lord, 15:9 then a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah of finely ground flour mixed with half a hin of olive oil must be presented 7  with the young bull, 15:10 and you must present as the drink offering half a hin of wine with the fire offering as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. 15:11 This is what is to be done 8  for each ox, or each ram, or each of the male lambs or the goats. 15:12 You must do so for each one according to the number that you prepare.

15:13‘Every native-born person must do these things in this way to present an offering made by fire as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. 15:14 If a resident foreigner is living 9  with you – or whoever is among you 10  in future generations 11 and prepares an offering made by fire as a pleasing aroma to the Lord, he must do it the same way you are to do it. 12  15:15 One statute must apply 13  to you who belong to the congregation and to the resident foreigner who is living among you, as a permanent 14  statute for your future generations. You and the resident foreigner will be alike 15  before the Lord. 15:16 One law and one custom must apply to you and to the resident foreigner who lives alongside you.’
