CHAPTER 1

Offerings unto the LORD

And he called Moses, and the  lord spoke to him from out of the tent of the testimony, saying, Speak to the sons of Israel! And you shall say to them, A man of you, if he should bring gift offerings to the  lord from the cattle, and from the oxen, and from the sheep -- you shall bring your gift offerings thus. If [2be a whole burnt-offering 1his gift offering] of the oxen, [4male 3as an unblemished 1he shall bring 2it] to the door of the tent of the testimony. He shall bring it as acceptable before the  lord. And he shall place his hand upon the head of the yield offering acceptable to him, to atone for him. And they shall slay the calf before the  lord, and [6shall bring 1the 2sons 3of Aaron 4the 5priests] the blood, and they shall pour the blood upon the altar round about the one at the doors of the tent of the testimony. And flaying the whole burnt-offering, they shall dismember it by limbs. And [6shall put 1the 2sons 3of Aaron 4the 5priests] fire upon the altar. And they shall pile wood upon the fire. And [6shall pile up 1the 2sons 3of Aaron 4the 5priests] the pieces, and the head, and the fat upon the wood upon the fire being upon the altar. But the intestines and the feet they shall wash in water. And [3shall place 1the 2priest] the whole amount upon the altar -- [2a yield offering 1it is] sacrifice scent of pleasant aroma to the  lord. 10 And if [2is from 3the 4sheep 1his gift offering] to the  lord, or also from the lambs, and of the kids for a whole burnt-offering, [3male 2an unblemished 1he shall bring] for it. And he shall place his hand upon its head. 11 And they shall slay it by the side of the altar, towards the north before the  lord. And [6shall pour 1the 2sons 3of Aaron 4the 5priests] the blood of it upon the altar round about. 12 And they shall divide it by limbs, and the head, and its fat. And [3shall pile 1the 2priests] them upon the wood upon the fire upon the altar. 13 And the intestines, and the feet they shall wash in water. And [3shall bring 1the 2priest] the whole amount, and shall place them upon the altar -- it is a yield offering sacrifice scent of pleasant aroma to the  lord. 14 But if from the birds [3yield offering 1he should bring 2his gift] to the  lord, then he shall bring [2from 3the 4turtle-doves 5or 6from 7the 8pigeons 1his gift], 15 and [3shall bring 4it 1the 2priest] to the altar, and shall pluck off its head, and [3shall place it 1the 2priest] upon the altar, and he shall wring out the blood to the base of the altar. 16 And he shall remove the crop with the feathers, and cast them by the altar according to the east, into the place of the ashes. 17 And he shall break it from the wings, and shall not divide it. And [3shall place 4it 1the 2priest] upon the altar upon the wood upon the fire -- [2a yield offering 1it is] sacrifice scent of pleasant aroma to the  lord.
