VIN(i) 1 the LORD called to Moses, and spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, saying, 2 »Tell the Israelites: ‘When you bring an offering to the LORD, bring your offering of animals from the herd or the flock. 3 “'If his offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he shall offer a male without defect. He shall offer it at the door of the Tent of Meeting, that he may be accepted before the LORD. 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 the LORD, 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 He shall skin the burnt offering, and cut it into 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 but he shall wash its innards and its legs with water. The priest shall burn all of it on the altar, for a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, of a pleasant aroma to the LORD. 10 And if the offering be of the flocks, a holocaust of sheep or of goats, he shall offer a male without blemish. 11 He must slaughter it on the north side of the altar before the LORD; then Aaron's sons, the priests, will sprinkle its blood all around the altar. 12 then they shall cut it in quarters and the priests shall lay these with the head and the suet on the wood which is on the fire on the altar; 13 But he shall wash the inwards and the legs with water: and the priest shall bring it all, and burn it on the altar: it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet smell to the LORD. 14 "'If his offering to the LORD is a burnt offering of birds, then he shall offer his offering of turtledoves, or of young pigeons. 15 The priest shall bring it to the altar, and wring off its head, and burn it on the altar; and its blood shall be drained out on the side 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 He shall tear it by its wings, but shall not divide it apart. The priest shall burn it on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, of a pleasant aroma to the LORD.
