Laws concerning Offerings

15Then the LORD told Moses,H3068H1696H4872H559 2"Give the following instructions to the people of Israel."When you finally settle in the land I am giving you,H1696H1121H3478H559H935H776H4186H5414 3you will offer special gifts as a pleasing aroma to the LORD. These gifts may take the form of a burnt offering, a sacrifice to fulfill a vow, a voluntary offering, or an offering at any of your annual festivals, and they may be taken from your herds of cattle or your flocks of sheep and goats.H6213H801H3068H5930H2077H6381H5088H5071H4150H6213H5207H7381H3068H1241H6629 4When you present these offerings, you must also give the LORD a grain offering of two quarts of choice flour mixed with one quart of olive oil.H7126H7133H3068H7126H4503H6241H5560H1101H7243H1969H8081 5For each lamb offered as a burnt offering or a special sacrifice, you must also present one quart of wine as a liquid offering.H7243H1969H3196H5262H6213H5930H2077H259H3532 6"If the sacrifice is a ram, give a grain offering of four quarts of choice flour mixed with a third of a gallon of olive oil,H352H6213H4503H8147H6241H5560H1101H7992H1969H8081 7and give a third of a gallon of wine as a liquid offering. This will be a pleasing aroma to the LORD.H5262H7126H7992H1969H3196H5207H7381H3068 8"When you present a young bull as a burnt offering or as a sacrifice to fulfill a vow or as a peace offering to the LORD,H6213H1121H1241H5930H2077H6381H5088H8002H3068 9you must also give a grain offering of six quarts of choice flour mixed with two quarts of olive oil,H7126H1241H1121H4503H7969H6241H5560H1101H2677H1969H8081 10and give two quarts of wine as a liquid offering. This will be a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the LORD.H7126H5262H2677H1969H3196H801H5207H7381H3068 11"Each sacrifice of a bull, ram, lamb, or young goat should be prepared in this way.H6213H259H7794H259H352H3532H7716H5795 12Follow these instructions with each offering you present.H4557H6213H3602H6213H259H4557 13All of you native-born Israelites must follow these instructions when you offer a special gift as a pleasing aroma to the LORD.H249H6213H7126H801H5207H7381H3068 14And if any foreigners visit you or live among you and want to present a special gift as a pleasing aroma to the LORD, they must follow these same procedures.H1616H1481H8432H1755H6213H801H5207H7381H3068H6213H6213 15Native-born Israelites and foreigners are equal before the LORD and are subject to the same decrees. This is a permanent law for you, to be observed from generation to generation.H259H2708H6951H1616H1481H2708H5769H1755H1616H6440H3068 16The same instructions and regulations will apply both to you and to the foreigners living among you."H259H8451H259H4941H1616H1481 17Then the LORD said to Moses,H3068H1696H4872H559 18"Give the following instructions to the people of Israel."When you arrive in the land where I am taking you,H1696H1121H3478H559H935H776H935 19and you eat the crops that grow there, you must set some aside as a sacred offering to the LORD.H398H3899H776H7311H8641H3068 20Present a cake from the first of the flour you grind, and set it aside as a sacred offering, as you do with the first grain from the threshing floor.H7311H2471H7225H6182H8641H8641H1637H7311 21Throughout the generations to come, you are to present a sacred offering to the LORD each year from the first of your ground flour.H7225H6182H5414H3068H8641H1755 22"But suppose you unintentionally fail to carry out all these commands that the LORD has given you through Moses.H7686H6213H4687H3068H1696H4872 23And suppose your descendants in the future fail to do everything the LORD has commanded through Moses.H3068H6680H3027H4872H3117H3068H6680H1973H1755 24If the mistake was made unintentionally, and the community was unaware of it, the whole community must present a young bull for a burnt offering as a pleasing aroma to the LORD. It must be offered along with its prescribed grain offering and liquid offering and with one male goat for a sin offering.H6213H7684H5869H5712H5712H6213H259H1121H1241H6499H5930H5207H7381H3068H4503H5262H4941H259H8163H5795H2403 25With it the priest will purify the whole community of Israel, making them right with the LORD, and they will be forgiven. For it was an unintentional sin, and they have corrected it with their offerings to the LORD—the special gift and the sin offering.H3548H3722H5712H1121H3478H5545H7684H935H7133H801H3068H2403H6440H3068H7684 26The whole community of Israel will be forgiven, including the foreigners living among you, for all the people were involved in the sin.H5545H5712H1121H3478H1616H1481H8432H5971H7684 27"If one individual commits an unintentional sin, the guilty person must bring a one-year-old female goat for a sin offering.H259H5315H2398H7684H7126H5795H1323H8141H2403 28The priest will sacrifice it to purify the guilty person before the LORD, and that person will be forgiven.H3548H3722H5315H7683H2398H7684H6440H3068H3722H5545 29These same instructions apply both to native-born Israelites and to the foreigners living among you.H259H8451H6213H7684H249H1121H3478H1616H1481H8432 30"But those who brazenly violate the LORD's will, whether native-born Israelites or foreigners, have blasphemed the LORD, and they must be cut off from the community.H5315H6213H7311H3027H249H4480H1616H1442H3068H5315H3772H7130H5971 31Since they have treated the LORD's word with contempt and deliberately disobeyed his command, they must be completely cut off and suffer the punishment for their guilt."H959H1697H3068H6565H4687H5315H3772H3772H5771

Penalty for Breaking the Sabbath

32One day while the people of Israel were in the wilderness, they discovered a man gathering wood on the Sabbath day.H1121H3478H4057H4672H376H7197H6086H7676H3117 33The people who found him doing this took him before Moses, Aaron, and the rest of the community.H4672H7197H6086H7126H4872H175H5712 34They held him in custody because they did not know what to do with him.H3240H4929H6567H6213 35Then the LORD said to Moses, "The man must be put to death! The whole community must stone him outside the camp."H3068H559H4872H376H4191H4191H5712H7275H68H2351H4264 36So the whole community took the man outside the camp and stoned him to death, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.H5712H3318H2351H4264H7275H68H4191H3068H6680H4872

Tassels on Clothing

37Then the LORD said to Moses,H3068H559H4872H559 38"Give the following instructions to the people of Israel: Throughout the generations to come you must make tassels for the hems of your clothing and attach them with a blue cord.H1696H1121H3478H559H6213H6734H3671H899H1755H5414H6734H3671H6616H8504 39When you see the tassels, you will remember and obey all the commands of the LORD instead of following your own desires and defiling yourselves, as you are prone to do.H6734H7200H2142H4687H3068H6213H8446H310H3824H5869H310H2181 40The tassels will help you remember that you must obey all my commands and be holy to your God.H2142H6213H4687H1961H6918H430 41I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt that I might be your God. I am the LORD your God!"H3068H430H3318H776H4714H430H3068H430
