‘If his offering is a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male dwithout blemish; he shall offer it of his own free will at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before the Lord. eThen he shall put his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be faccepted on his behalf gto make atonement for him. He shall kill the hbull before the Lord; iand the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall bring the blood jand sprinkle the blood all around on the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of meeting. And he shall kskin the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces. The sons of Aaron the priest shall put lfire on the altar, and mlay the wood in order on the fire. Then the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat in order on the wood that is on the fire upon the altar; but he shall wash its entrails and its legs with water.
