Numbers 15

Thomson(i) 1 Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, When you are come into the land of your habitation, which I give you, 3 and thou wilt offer whole burnt offerings to the Lord, whether it be an offering of homage, or a sacrifice to magnify a vow, or a free will offering; or at your festivals, to make a smell of fragrance to the Lord; if they be from the herds or the flocks, 4 he who bringeth his gift to the Lord must also bring for a sacrifice of flour, the tenth of an ephah of fine flour, made up with the fourth of an hin of oil; 5 and for a libation you shall pour the fourth of an hin of wine upon the whole burnt offering, or upon the sacrifice; for every lamb you shall do this, as an offering of homage, a smell of fragrance for the Lord: 6 But for a ram, when you offer one, for a whole burnt offering, or for a sacrifice, thou shalt offer two tenths of fine flour, made up with the third of an hin of oil, for a sacrifice: 7 and for a libation you shall offer a third of an hin of wine, for a smell of fragrance to the Lord. 8 And if you make your offering from the herds, for a whole burnt offering, or for a sacrifice to magnify a vow, or for an offering of thanksgiving to the Lord; 9 he who offereth must bring, with the young bull, three tenths of fine flour mixed up with the half of an hin of oil, for a sacrifice; 10 and the half of an hin of wine for a libation, as an offering of homage, a smell of fragrance for the Lord. 11 Thus thou shalt do for every young bull, or for every ram, or for every lamb, or kid of the goats. 12 According to the number which you offer, thus you shall do for every one, according to their number. 13 Every one born in the land shall prepare these things in this manner, when he maketh offerings of homage for a smell of fragrance for the Lord. 14 And if there be a proselyte among you in your land, or whoever there may be among your generations, who will make an offering of homage, a smell of fragrance for the Lord, in the same manner as you do, so shall he do. 15 The congregation is the Lord's. There shall be one law for you, and for the proselytes among yon is a perpetual law for your generations. As you are, so shall the proselyte be before the Lord. 16 There shall be one law, and one rule of rectitude for you and for the proselyte settled among you. 17 Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 18 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, When you come to the land to which I am conducting you, 19 this must be done. When you are about to eat of the bread of the land, you shall set apart a separate portion as a dedication to the Lord. 20 As the first fruits of your dough you shalt set apart a loaf for this separate portion. As a dedication from the threshing floor, so shall you set this apart, 21 as the first portion of your dough, and you shall give it to the Lord as a dedication throughout your generations. 22 And when you shall be guilty of a failure, and shall not have performed all these commands which the Lord hath delivered to Moses: 23 even all that the Lord hath enjoined on you by the ministry of Moses, from the day the Lord gave them in charge to you, and thenceforward throughout your generations, 24 then shall this be done. If, escaping the notice of the congregation, it hath been done inadvertently, the whole congregation shall offer a young bull from the herd, without blemish, for a whole burnt offering, for a smell of fragrance for the Lord, with its sacrifice, and its libation, according to the rule prescribed, and one kid of the goats for a sin offering. 25 And the priest shall make atonement for the whole congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them. Because it was done through inadvertency, and they have brought their gift, an offering of homage to the Lord for their sin before the Lord, for their involuntary acts; 26 therefore forgiveness shall be extended to the whole congregation of the children of Israel, even to the stranger settled among you; because it was an act of ignorance in the whole people. 27 And if any individual sin ignorantly, he shall bring a she-goat of the first year for a sin offering; 28 and the priest shall make an atonement for the person who hath been guilty through ignorance, and hath sinned inadvertently before the Lord. In making atonement for him who shall act inadvertently, 29 there shall be the same law for the stranger among the children of Israel, and for the proselyte who hath joined them and sinned inadvertently, as for them. 30 But if any person, whether a native or a proselyte, shall presumptuously transgress, he provoketh God; that person shall be cut off from among his people. 31 Because he hath despised the statute of the Lord, and hath broken his commandments, that person shall be blotted out: his sin shall be upon him. 32 When the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man gathering wood on the sabbath day. 33 And they who found him gathering wood on the sabbath day, brought him before Moses and Aaron, and the whole congregation of the children of Israel; 34 and they committed him to custody, for it had not been determined what should be done to him. 35 Whereupon the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Let the man be put to death. Let all the congregation stone him with stones. 36 So all the congregation led him out of the camp, and the whole congregation stoned him with stones without the camp, as the Lord commanded Moses. 37 Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 38 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them. Let them make for themselves tufts on the corners of their mantles, throughout all their generations; and on the tufts at the corners you shall put a blue ribbon, 39 and have it on the tufts, that when you see them you may remember all the commands of the Lord, and do them, and not turn aside after your imaginations, and your own eyes, by following of which you have gone a whoring; 40 that you may remember, and do all my commands, and be dedicated to your God. 41 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. I the Lord am your God. Chapter 16
