Procedures for the Burnt Offering

1The LORD called to Moses from the Tabernacle and said to him,H3068H7121H4872H1696H168H4150H559 2"Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. When you present an animal as an offering to the LORD, you may take it from your herd of cattle or your flock of sheep and goats.H1696H1121H3478H559H120H7126H7133H3068H7126H7133H929H1241H6629 3"If the animal you present as a burnt offering is from the herd, it must be a male with no defects. Bring it to the entrance of the Tabernacle so you may be accepted by the LORD.H7133H5930H1241H7126H2145H8549H7126H7522H6607H168H4150H6440H3068 4Lay your hand on the animal's head, and the LORD will accept its death in your place to purify you, making you right with him.H5564H3027H7218H5930H7521H3722 5Then slaughter the young bull in the LORD's presence, and Aaron's sons, the priests, will present the animal's blood by splattering it against all sides of the altar that stands at the entrance to the Tabernacle.H7819H1121H1241H6440H3068H3548H175H1121H7126H1818H2236H1818H5439H4196H6607H168H4150 6Then skin the animal and cut it into pieces.H6584H5930H5408H5409 7The sons of Aaron the priest will build a wood fire on the altar.H1121H175H3548H5414H784H4196H6086H6186H784 8They will arrange the pieces of the offering, including the head and fat, on the wood burning on the altar.H3548H175H1121H6186H5409H7218H6309H6186H6086H784H4196 9But the internal organs and the legs must first be washed with water. Then the priest will burn the entire sacrifice on the altar as a burnt offering. It is a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the LORD.H7130H3767H7364H4325H3548H6999H4196H5930H801H5207H7381H3068 10"If the animal you present as a burnt offering is from the flock, it may be either a sheep or a goat, but it must be a male with no defects.H7133H6629H3775H5795H5930H7126H2145H8549 11Slaughter the animal on the north side of the altar in the LORD's presence, and Aaron's sons, the priests, will splatter its blood against all sides of the altar.H7819H3409H4196H6828H6440H3068H3548H175H1121H2236H1818H5439H4196 12Then cut the animal in pieces, and the priests will arrange the pieces of the offering, including the head and fat, on the wood burning on the altar.H5408H5409H7218H6309H3548H6186H6086H784H4196 13But the internal organs and the legs must first be washed with water. Then the priest will burn the entire sacrifice on the altar as a burnt offering. It is a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the LORD.H7364H7130H3767H4325H3548H7126H6999H4196H5930H801H5207H7381H3068 14"If you present a bird as a burnt offering to the LORD, choose either a turtledove or a young pigeon.H5930H7133H3068H5775H7126H7133H8449H1121H3123 15The priest will take the bird to the altar, wring off its head, and burn it on the altar. But first he must drain its blood against the side of the altar.H3548H7126H4196H4454H7218H6999H4196H1818H4680H7023H4196 16The priest must also remove the crop and the feathers and throw them in the ashes on the east side of the altar.H5493H4760H5133H7993H681H4196H6924H4725H1880 17Then, grasping the bird by its wings, the priest will tear the bird open, but without tearing it apart. Then he will burn it as a burnt offering on the wood burning on the altar. It is a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the LORD.H8156H3671H914H3548H6999H4196H6086H784H5930H801H5207H7381H3068
