Numbers 15

Laws for Canaan

1Now the  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 a  Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you enter the land
Lit of your dwellings
where you are to live, which I am giving you,
3then make c  an offering by fire to the  Lord, a burnt offering or a sacrifice to
Or make a special votive offering
,
e  fulfill a special vow, or as a freewill offering or in your f  appointed times, to make a g  soothing aroma to the  Lord, from the herd or from the flock.
4h  The 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
I.e. Approx one gal., and so through v 10
hin of oil,
5and you shall prepare wine for the drink offering, one-fourth of a hin, with the burnt offering or for the sacrifice, for j  each lamb. 6Or 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; 7and for the drink offering you shall offer one-third of a hin of wine as a soothing aroma to the  Lord. 8When you prepare k  a bull as a burnt offering or a sacrifice, to
Or make a special votive offering
fulfill a special vow, or for peace offerings to the  Lord,
9then 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; 10and 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.

11Thus it shall be done for each ox, or for each ram, or for each of the male lambs, or of the goats. 12According to the number that you prepare, so you shall do for everyone according to their number. 13All 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

14If 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. 15As for the assembly, there shall be m  one 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 n  one law and one ordinance for you and for the alien who sojourns with you.’”

17Then the  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 18Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you enter the land where I bring you, 19then it shall be, that when you eat of the
Lit bread
,
p  food of the land, you shall lift up
Or a heave offering
an offering to the  Lord.
20r  Of the first of your
Or coarse meal
dough you shall lift up a cake as an
Or heave offering
offering; as u  the
Or heave offering
offering of the threshing floor, so you shall lift it up.
21From the first of your
Or coarse meal
dough you shall give to the  Lord an
Or offering lifted up
offering throughout your generations.

22But when you y  unwittingly fail and do not observe all these commandments, which the  Lord has spoken to Moses, 23even all that the  Lord has commanded you
Lit by the hand of
through Moses, from the day when the  Lord gave commandment and onward throughout your generations,
24then it shall be, if it is done aa  unintentionally
Lit from the eyes of the congregation
without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one bull for a burnt offering, as a soothing aroma to the  Lord ac  with its grain offering and its drink offering, according to the ordinance, and one male goat for a sin offering.
25‘Then ad  the 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. 26So 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 ae  error.

27Also if one person sins af  unintentionally, then he shall offer a one year old female goat for a sin offering. 28ag  The priest shall make atonement before the  Lord for the person who goes astray when he sins unintentionally, making atonement for him
Or and he shall
that he may be forgiven.
29You 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. 30But the person who does anything ai  defiantly, whether he is native or an alien, that one is blaspheming the  Lord; and that person shall be cut off from among his people. 31Because he has aj  despised the word of the  Lord and has broken His commandment, that person shall be completely cut off; ak  his
Or iniquity
guilt will be on him.’”

Sabbath-breaking Punished

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

37The  Lord also spoke to Moses, saying, 38Speak to the sons of Israel, and tell them that they shall make for themselves as  tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and that they shall put on the tassel of each corner a cord of blue. 39It shall be a tassel for you
Lit and you shall look at it
to look at and au  remember all the commandments of the  Lord, so as to do them and not
Lit seek
follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you played the harlot,
40so that you may remember to do all My commandments and aw  be 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.”
