Additional Laws for Burnt Offerings

6 a Thenb Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, “When a personc displays infidelityd against Yahweh and he deceives his fellow citizen regardinge something entrusted or a pledgef or stealing or he exploits his fellow citizen, or he finds lost property and lies about it and swears falselyg in regard toh any one of these things by which a personi might commit sin, and whenj he sins and is guilty, thenk he shall bring back the things he had stolenl or what he had extortedm or something with which he had been entrustedn or the lost property that he had found, or regardingo anything about which he has sworn falsely,p thenq he shall repay it according tor its value and shall add one-fifth of its value to it—he must give it to whom it belongss on the day of his guilt offering. And he must bring as his guilt offering to Yahweh a ram without defect from the flockt by your valuationu as a guilt offering to the priest, and the priest shall make atonement for him beforev Yahweh, and he shall be forgiven anythingw from all that he might do by which he might incur guilt.”x

Theny Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, “Command Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the regulation of the burnt offering: The burnt offering must remain on the hearthz on the altar all night until the morning, and the altar’s fire must be kept burning on it. 10 And the priest shall put on his linen robe, and he must put his linen undergarments on his body, and he shall take away the fatty ashes of the burnt offering that the fire has consumed on the altar, and he shall place thema beside the altar. 11 And he shall take off his garments and put on other garments, and he shall bring out the fatty ashes outside the campb to a ceremonially clean place, 12 butc the fire on the altar must be kept burning on it; it must not be quenched. And the priest must burn wood every morningd on it,e and he shall arrange the burnt offering on it,f and he shall turn into smoke the fat portions of the fellowship offerings on it.g 13 A perpetual fire must be kept burning on the altar; it must not be quenched.

Additional Laws for Grain Offerings

14 “ ‘And this is the regulation of the grain offering. Aaron’s sons shall present it beforeh Yahweh in front ofi the altar, 15 and hej in his fist shall take away from it some ofk the grain offering’s finely milled flour, and some ofl its oil and all of the frankincense that is on the grain offering, and he shall turn into smoke its token portion on the altar as an appeasing fragrance to Yahweh. 16 And Aaron and his sons must eat the remainder of it; they must eat it as unleavened bread in a holy place—in the tent of assembly’s courtyard they must eat it. 17 It must not be baked with yeast. I have given it as their share from my offerings made by fire. It is a most holy thing,m like the sin offering and like the guilt offering. 18 Every male among Aaron’s sons may eat it as a lasting rule among your generations from the offerings made by fire belonging ton Yahweh. Anything thato touches them will become holy.’ ”

19 Thenp Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 20 “This is the offering of Aaron and his sons that they shall present to Yahweh on the day of his being anointed: a tenth of anq ephah of finely milled flour as a perpetual grain offering, half of it in the morning and half of it in the evening. 21 It must be mader ins oil on a flat baking pan; yout must bring it well-mixed; you must present pieces of a grain offering’s baked goodsu as an appeasing fragrance to Yahweh. 22 And the anointed priest taking his place from among his sons must do it. As a lasting rule, it must be turned into smoke totally for Yahweh. 23 And every grain offering of a priest must be a whole burnt offering; it must not be eaten.”

Additional Laws for Sin Offerings

24 Thenv Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 25 “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the regulation of the sin offering: In the place where the sin offering is slaughtered, the sin offering must be slaughtered beforew Yahweh; it is a most holy thing.x 26 The priest who offers the sin offeringy must eat it in a holy place—in the tent of assembly’s courtyard. 27 Anything thatz touches its flesh will become holy, and when some ofa its blood spatters on ab garment, what was spattered on it youc shall wash in a holy place. 28 And a clay vessel in which it was boiled must be broken, butd if it was boiled in a bronze vessel, thene it shall be thoroughly scoured and rinsed with water. 29 Any male among the priests may eat it; it is a most holy thing.f 30 Butg any sin offering from which some ofh its blood is brought to the tent of assembly to make atonement in the sanctuary must not be eaten; it must be burned in the fire.’ ”
