Chapter 15

Laws for Canaan

1 Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 aSpeak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you enter the land 1where you are to live, which I am giving you, 3 then make aan offering by fire to the Lord, a burnt offering or a sacrifice to 1bfulfill a special vow, or as a freewill offering or in your cappointed times, to make a dsoothing aroma to the Lord, from the herd or from the flock. 4 aThe one who presents his offering shall present to the Lord a grain offering of one-tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one-fourth of a 1hin of oil, 5 and you shall prepare wine for the drink offering, one-fourth of a hin, with the burnt offering or for the sacrifice, for aeach lamb. 6 ‘Or for a ram you shall prepare as a grain offering two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one-third of a hin of oil; 7 and for the drink offering you shall offer one-third of a hin of wine as a soothing aroma to the Lord. 8 ‘When you prepare aa bull as a burnt offering or a sacrifice, to 1fulfill a special vow, or for peace offerings to the Lord, 9 then you shall offer with the bull a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one-half a hin of oil; 10 and you shall offer as the drink offering one-half a hin of wine as an offering by fire, as a soothing aroma to the Lord.

11 ‘Thus it shall be done for each ox, or for each ram, or for each of the male lambs, or of the goats. 12 ‘According to the number that you prepare, so you shall do for everyone according to their number. 13 ‘All who are native shall do these things in this manner, in presenting an offering by fire, as a soothing aroma to the Lord.

Law of the Sojourner

14 ‘If an alien sojourns with you, or one who may be among you throughout your generations, and he wishes to make an offering by fire, as a soothing aroma to the Lord, just as you do so he shall do. 15 As for the assembly, there shall be aone statute for you and for the alien who sojourns with you, a perpetual statute throughout your generations; as you are, so shall the alien be before the Lord. 16 ‘There is to be aone law and one ordinance for you and for the alien who sojourns with you.’ ”

17 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 18 “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you enter the land where I bring you, 19 then it shall be, that when you eat of the 1afood of the land, you shall lift up 2an offering to the Lord. 20 aOf the first of your 1dough you shall lift up a cake as an 2offering; as bthe 2offering of the threshing floor, so you shall lift it up. 21 ‘From the first of your 1dough you shall give to the Lord an 2offering throughout your generations.

22 ‘But when you aunwittingly fail and do not observe all these commandments, which the Lord has spoken to Moses, 23 even all that the Lord has commanded you 1through Moses, from the day when the Lord gave commandment and onward throughout your generations, 24 then it shall be, if it is done aunintentionally, 1without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one bull for a burnt offering, as a soothing aroma to the Lord, bwith its grain offering and its drink offering, according to the ordinance, and one male goat for a sin offering. 25 ‘Then athe priest shall make atonement for all the congregation of the sons of Israel, and they will be forgiven; for it was an error, and they have brought their offering, an offering by fire to the Lord, and their sin offering before the Lord, for their error. 26 ‘So all the congregation of the sons of Israel will be forgiven, with the alien who sojourns among them, for it happened to all the people through aerror.

27 ‘Also if one person sins aunintentionally, then he shall offer a one year old female goat for a sin offering. 28 aThe priest shall make atonement before the Lord for the person who goes astray when he sins unintentionally, making atonement for him 1that he may be forgiven. 29 ‘You shall have one law for him who does anything unintentionally, for him who is native among the sons of Israel and for the alien who sojourns among them. 30 ‘But the person who does anything adefiantly, whether he is native or an alien, that one is blaspheming the Lord; and that person shall be cut off from among his people. 31 ‘Because he has adespised the word of the Lord and has broken His commandment, that person shall be completely cut off; bhis 1guilt will be on him.’ ”

Sabbath-breaking Punished

32 Now while the sons of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man agathering wood on the sabbath day. 33 Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and to all the congregation; 34 and they put him in 1custody abecause it had not been 2declared what should be done to him. 35 Then the Lord said to Moses, “The man shall surely be put to death; aall the congregation shall stone him with stones outside the camp.” 36 So all the congregation brought him outside the camp and stoned him 1to death with stones, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.

37 The Lord also spoke to Moses, saying, 38 “Speak to the sons of Israel, and tell them that they shall make for themselves atassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and that they shall put on the tassel of each corner a cord of blue. 39 It shall be a tassel for you 1to look at and aremember all the commandments of the Lord, so as to do them and not 2follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you played the harlot, 40 so that you may remember to do all My commandments and abe holy to your God. 41 I am the Lord your God who brought you out from the land of Egypt to be your God; I am the Lord your God.”
