Leviticus 1

LEB(i) 1 Then* Yahweh called to Moses and spoke to him from the tent of assembly, saying, 2 "Speak to the Israelites,* and say to them, 'When a person* from you presents an offering to Yahweh, you shall present your offering from domestic animals, from the cattle* or from the flock.* 3 If his offering is a burnt offering from the cattle,* then he must present* an unblemished male; he must present it at the door of the tent of assembly for his acceptance before* Yahweh. 4 " 'He* must lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering and it will be accepted* for him in order to make atonement for him. 5 He* must slaughter the young bull* before* Yahweh, then* Aaron's sons, the priests, will present the blood and sprinkle the blood all around the altar that is at the door of the tent of assembly. 6 Then* he must remove the skin of the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces. 7 The sons of* Aaron the priest will put fire on the altar and arrange the wood on the fire. 8 Then* Aaron's sons, the priests, will arrange the pieces of meat,* the head, and the suet on the wood that is on the fire that is on the altar. 9 Then* he must wash its inner parts* and its lower leg bones with water, and the priest will turn into smoke the whole animal on the altar as a burnt offering by fire, as an appeasing fragrance for Yahweh. 10 " 'But if his offering is from the flock,* from the sheep or from the goats for a burnt offering, he must present* an unblemished* male. 11 He* must slaughter it on the north side of the altar before* Yahweh; then* Aaron's sons, the priests, will sprinkle its blood all around the altar. 12 Then* he must cut it into pieces along with its head and its suet; and the priest will arrange them on the wood that is on the fire that is on the altar. 13 Then* he must wash the inner parts* and the lower leg bones with water and the priest shall present the whole animal and will turn it* into smoke on the altar; it is a burnt offering by fire as an appeasing fragrance for Yahweh. 14 " 'But if his offering for Yahweh is a burnt offering from the birds, then he must present his offering from the turtledoves or from the young doves.* 15 The priest* will present it at the altar and must wring off its head and turn it into smoke on the altar, and its blood will be drained out on the wall* of the altar. 16 He* must remove its crop with its plumage and throw it to the east beside the altar on the place of the fatty ashes. 17 Then* he must tear it apart by its wings but must not sever it; then* the priest will turn it into smoke on the altar. It is a burnt offering by fire as an appeasing fragrance for Yahweh.'"
