Numbers 151And the Lord said to Moses, 2Say to the children of Israel, When you have come into the land which I am giving to you for your resting-place, 3And are going to make an offering by fire to the Lord, a burned offering or an offering in connection with an oath, or an offering freely given, or at your regular feasts, an offering for a sweet smell to the Lord, from the herd or the flock: 4Then let him who is making his offering, give to the Lord a meal offering of a tenth part of a measure of the best meal mixed with a fourth part of a hin of oil: 5And for the drink offering, you are to give with the burned offering or other offering, the fourth part of a hin of wine for every lamb. 6Or for a male sheep, give as a meal offering two tenth parts of a measure of the best meal mixed with a third part of a hin of oil: 7And for the drink offering give a third part of a hin of wine, for a sweet smell to the Lord. 8And when you make ready a young ox for a burned or other offering, or for the effecting of an oath, or for peace-offerings to the Lord: 9Then with the ox give a meal offering of three tenth parts of a measure of the best meal mixed with half a hin of oil. 10And for the drink offering: give half a hin of wine, for an offering made by fire for a sweet smell to the Lord. 11This is to be done for every young ox and for every male sheep or he-lamb or young goat. 12Whatever number you make ready, so you are to do for every one. 13All those who are Israelites by birth are to do these things in this way, when giving an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord. 14And if a man from another country or any other person living among you, through all your generations, has the desire to give an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord, let him do as you do. 15There is to be one law for you and for the man of another country living with you, one law for ever from generation to generation; as you are, so is he to be before the Lord. 16The law and the rule are to be the same for you and for those from other lands living with you. 17And the Lord said to Moses, 18Say to the children of Israel, When you come into the land where I am guiding you, 19Then, when you take for your food the produce of the land, you are to give an offering lifted up before the Lord. 20Of the first of your rough meal you are to give a cake for a lifted offering, lifting it up before the Lord as the offering of the grain-floor is lifted up. 21From generation to generation you are to give to the Lord a lifted offering from the first of your rough meal. 22And if in error you go against any of these laws which the Lord has given to Moses, 23All the laws which the Lord has given you by the hand of Moses, from the day when the Lord gave them, and ever after from generation to generation; 24Then, if the wrong is done in error, without the knowledge of the meeting of the people, let all the meeting give a young ox as a burned offering, a sweet smell to the Lord, with its meal offering and its drink offering, as is ordered in the law, together with a he-goat for a sin-offering. 25So the priest will make the people free from sin, and they will have forgiveness; for it was an error, and they have given their offering made by fire to the Lord, and their sin-offering before the Lord, on account of their error: 26And all the meeting of the children of Israel, as well as those from other lands living among them, will have forgiveness; for it was an error on the part of the people. 27And if one person does wrong, without being conscious of it, then let him give a she-goat of the first year for a sin-offering. 28And the priest will take away the sin of the person who has done wrong, if the wrong was done unconsciously, and he will have forgiveness. 29The law in connection with wrong done unconsciously is to be the same for him who is an Israelite by birth and for the man from another country who is living among them. 30But the person who does wrong in the pride of his heart, if he is one of you or of another nation by birth, is acting without respect for the Lord, and will be cut off from his people. 31Because he had no respect for the word of the Lord, and did not keep his law, that man will be cut off without mercy and his sin will be on him. 32Now while the children of Israel were in the waste land, they saw a man who was getting sticks on the Sabbath day. 33And those who saw him getting sticks took him before Moses and Aaron and all the people. 34And they had him shut up, because they had no directions about what was to be done with him. 35Then the Lord said to Moses, Certainly the man is to be put to death: let him be stoned by all the people outside the tent-circle. 36So all the people took him outside the tent-circle and he was stoned to death there, as the Lord gave orders to Moses. 37And the Lord said to Moses, 38Say to the children of Israel that through all their generations they are to put on the edges of their robes an ornament of twisted threads, and in every ornament a blue cord; 39So that, looking on these ornaments, you may keep in mind the orders of the Lord and do them; and not be guided by the desires of your hearts and eyes, through which you have been untrue to me: 40And that you may keep in mind all my orders and do them and be holy to your God. 41I am the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt, so that I might be your God: I am the Lord your God.
