Chapter 6

Guilt Offering

1 1Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

2 “aWhen a person sins and acts unfaithfully against the Lord, and deceives his companion in regard to a deposit or a security entrusted to him, or through robbery, or if he has extorted from his companion,

3 or ahas found what was lost and lied about it and sworn falsely, so that he sins in regard to any one of the things a man may do;

4 then it shall be, when he sins and becomes guilty, that he shall arestore what he took by robbery or what he got by extortion, or the deposit which was 1entrusted to him or the lost thing which he found,

5 or anything about which he swore falsely; ahe shall make restitution for it 1in full and add to it one-fifth more. bHe shall give it to the one to whom it belongs on the day he presents his guilt offering.

6 “Then he shall bring to the priest his guilt offering to the Lord, aa ram without defect from the flock, according to your valuation, for a guilt offering,

7 and athe priest shall make atonement for him before the Lord, and he will be forgiven for any one of the things which he may have done to incur guilt.”

The Priest’s Part in the Offerings

8 1Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

9 “Command Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is athe law for the burnt offering: the burnt offering itself shall remain on the hearth on the altar all night until the morning, and bthe fire on the altar is to be kept burning on it.

10 ‘The priest is to put on ahis linen robe, and he shall put on undergarments next to his flesh; and he shall take up the 1ashes to which the fire 2reduces the burnt offering on the altar and place them beside the altar.

11 ‘Then he shall take off his garments and put on other garments, and carry the 1ashes outside the camp to a clean place.

12 ‘The fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it. It shall not go out, but the priest shall burn wood on it every morning; and he shall lay out the burnt offering on it, and offer up in smoke the fat portions of the peace offerings aon it.

13 ‘Fire shall be kept burning continually on the altar; it is not to go out.

14 ‘Now this is the law of the grain offering: the sons of Aaron shall present it before the Lord in front of the altar.

15 ‘aThen one of them shall lift up from it a handful of the fine flour of the grain offering, 1with its oil and all the incense that is on the grain offering, and he shall offer it up in smoke on the altar, a soothing aroma, as its memorial offering to the Lord.

16 ‘aWhat is left of it Aaron and his sons are to eat. It shall be eaten as unleavened cakes in a holy place; they are to eat it in the court of the tent of meeting.

17 ‘aIt shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it as their share from My offerings by fire; bit is most holy, like the sin offering and cthe guilt offering.

18 ‘aEvery male among the sons of Aaron may eat it; it is a permanent ordinance throughout your generations, from the offerings by fire to the Lord. bWhoever touches them will become consecrated.’ ”

19 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

20 “This is the offering which Aaron and his sons are to present to the Lord on the day when he is anointed; the tenth of an aephah of fine flour as ba 1regular grain offering, half of it in the morning and half of it in the evening.

21 “It shall be prepared with oil on a agriddle. When it is well stirred, you shall bring it. You shall present the grain offering in baked pieces as a soothing aroma to the Lord.

22 “The anointed priest who will be in his place 1among his sons shall 2offer it. By a permanent ordinance it shall be entirely offered up in smoke to the Lord.

23 “So every grain offering of the priest shall be burned entirely. It shall not be eaten.”

24 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

25 “Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, ‘This is the law of the sin offering: ain the place where the burnt offering is slain the sin offering shall be slain before the Lord; it is most holy.

26 ‘aThe priest who offers it for sin shall eat it. It shall be eaten in a holy place, in the court of the tent of meeting.

27 ‘aAnyone who touches its flesh will become consecrated; and when any of its blood 1splashes on a garment, in a holy place you shall wash what was splashed on.

28 ‘Also athe earthenware vessel in which it was boiled shall be broken; and if it was boiled in a bronze vessel, then it shall be scoured and rinsed in water.

29 ‘aEvery male among the priests may eat of it; bit is most holy.

30 ‘But no sin offering aof which any of the blood is brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement bin the holy place shall be eaten; cit shall be burned with fire.
