6 1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 2 2 “When a person sins and commits a trespass 3 against the Lord by deceiving his fellow citizen 4 in regard to something held in trust, or a pledge, or something stolen, or by extorting something from his fellow citizen, 5 3 or has found something lost and denies it and swears falsely 6 concerning any one of the things that someone might do to sin 7 – 4 when it happens that he sins and he is found guilty, 8 then he must return whatever he had stolen, or whatever he had extorted, or the thing that he had held in trust, 9 or the lost thing that he had found, 5 or anything about which he swears falsely. 10 He must restore it in full 11 and add one fifth to it; he must give it to its owner when he is found guilty. 12 6 Then he must bring his guilt offering to the Lord, a flawless ram from the flock, convertible into silver shekels, 13 for a guilt offering to the priest. 7 So the priest will make atonement 14 on his behalf before the Lord and he will be forgiven 15 for whatever he has done to become guilty.” 16
8 17 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 18 9 “Command Aaron and his sons, ‘This is the law of the burnt offering. The burnt offering is to remain on the hearth 19 on the altar all night until morning, and the fire of the altar must be kept burning on it. 20 10 Then the priest must put on his linen robe and must put linen leggings 21 over his bare flesh, and he must take up the fatty ashes of the burnt offering that the fire consumed on the altar, 22 and he must place them 23 beside the altar. 11 Then he must take off his clothes and put on other clothes, and he must bring the fatty ashes outside the camp to a ceremonially 24 clean place, 12 but the fire which is on the altar must be kept burning on it. 25 It must not be extinguished. So the priest must kindle wood on it morning by morning, and he must arrange the burnt offering on it and offer the fat of the peace offering up in smoke on it. 13 A continual fire must be kept burning on the altar. It must not be extinguished.
14 “‘This is the law of the grain offering. The sons of Aaron are to present it 26 before the Lord in front of the altar, 15 and the priest 27 must take up with his hand some of the choice wheat flour of the grain offering 28 and some of its olive oil, and all of the frankincense that is on the grain offering, and he must offer its memorial portion 29 up in smoke on the altar 30 as a soothing aroma to the Lord. 31 16 Aaron and his sons are to eat what is left over from it. It must be eaten unleavened in a holy place; they are to eat it in the courtyard of the Meeting Tent. 17 It must not be baked with yeast. 32 I have given it as their portion from my gifts. It is most holy, 33 like the sin offering and the guilt offering. 18 Every male among the sons of Aaron may eat it. It is a perpetual allotted portion 34 throughout your generations 35 from the gifts of the Lord. Anyone who touches these gifts 36 must be holy.’” 37
19 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 38 20 “This is the offering of Aaron and his sons which they must present to the Lord on the day when he is anointed: a tenth of an ephah 39 of choice wheat flour 40 as a continual grain offering, half of it in the morning and half of it in the evening. 21 It must be made with olive oil on a griddle and you must bring it well soaked, 41 so you must present a grain offering of broken pieces 42 as a soothing aroma to the Lord. 22 The high priest who succeeds him 43 from among his sons must do it. It is a perpetual statute; it must be offered up in smoke as a whole offering to the Lord. 23 Every grain offering of a priest must be a whole offering; it must not be eaten.”
24 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 44 25 “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is the law of the sin offering. In the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered the sin offering must be slaughtered before the Lord. It is most holy. 45 26 The priest who offers it for sin is to eat it. It must be eaten in a holy place, in the court of the Meeting Tent. 27 Anyone who touches its meat must be holy, and whoever spatters some of its blood on a garment, 46 you must wash 47 whatever he spatters it on in a holy place. 28 Any clay vessel it is boiled in must be broken, and if it was boiled in a bronze vessel, then that vessel 48 must be rubbed out and rinsed in water. 29 Any male among the priests may eat it. It is most holy. 49 30 But any sin offering from which some of its blood is brought into the Meeting Tent to make atonement in the sanctuary must not be eaten. It must be burned up in the fire. 50
7 “‘This is the law of the guilt offering. It is most holy. 2 In the place where they slaughter the burnt offering they must slaughter the guilt offering, and the officiating priest 1 must splash 2 the blood against the altar’s sides. 3 Then the one making the offering 3 must present all its fat: the fatty tail, the fat covering the entrails, 4 the two kidneys and the fat on their sinews, and the protruding lobe on the liver (which he must remove along with the kidneys). 4 5 Then the priest must offer them up in smoke on the altar 5 as a gift to the Lord. It is a guilt offering. 6 Any male among the priests may eat it. It must be eaten in a holy place. It is most holy. 6 7 The law is the same for the sin offering and the guilt offering; 7 it belongs to the priest who makes atonement with it.
8 “‘As for the priest who presents someone’s burnt offering, the hide of that burnt offering which he presented belongs to him. 9 Every grain offering which is baked in the oven or 8 made in the pan 9 or on the griddle belongs to the priest who presented it. 10 Every grain offering, whether mixed with olive oil or dry, belongs to all the sons of Aaron, each one alike. 10
11 “‘This is the law of the peace offering sacrifice which he 11 is to present to the Lord. 12 If he presents it on account of thanksgiving, 12 along with the thank offering sacrifice he must present unleavened loaves mixed with olive oil, unleavened wafers smeared with olive oil, 13 and well soaked 14 ring-shaped loaves made of choice wheat flour 15 mixed with olive oil. 13 He must present this grain offering 16 in addition to ring-shaped loaves of leavened bread which regularly accompany 17 the sacrifice of his thanksgiving peace offering. 14 He must present one of each kind of grain offering 18 as a contribution offering 19 to the Lord; it belongs to the priest who splashes the blood of the peace offering. 15 The meat of his 20 thanksgiving peace offering must be eaten on the day of his offering; he must not set any of it aside until morning.
16 “‘If his offering is a votive or freewill sacrifice, 21 it may be eaten on the day he presents his sacrifice, and also the leftovers from it may be eaten on the next day, 22 17 but the leftovers from the meat of the sacrifice must be burned up in the fire 23 on the third day. 18 If some of the meat of his peace offering sacrifice is ever eaten on the third day it will not be accepted; it will not be accounted to the one who presented it, since it is spoiled, 24 and the person who eats from it will bear his punishment for iniquity. 25 19 The meat which touches anything ceremonially 26 unclean must not be eaten; it must be burned up in the fire. As for ceremonially clean meat, 27 everyone who is ceremonially clean may eat the meat. 20 The person who eats meat from the peace offering sacrifice which belongs to the Lord while his uncleanness persists 28 will be cut off from his people. 29 21 When a person touches anything unclean (whether human uncleanness, or an unclean animal, or an unclean detestable creature) 30 and eats some of the meat of the peace offering sacrifice which belongs to the Lord, that person will be cut off from his people.’” 31
22 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 32 23 “Tell the Israelites, ‘You must not eat any fat of an ox, sheep, or goat. 24 Moreover, the fat of an animal that has died of natural causes 33 and the fat of an animal torn by beasts may be used for any other purpose, 34 but you must certainly never eat it. 25 If anyone eats fat from the animal from which he presents a gift to the Lord, that person will be cut off from his people. 35 26 And you must not eat any blood of the birds or the domesticated land animals in any of the places where you live. 36 27 Any person who eats any blood – that person will be cut off from his people.’” 37
28 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 38 29 “Tell the Israelites, ‘The one who presents his peace offering sacrifice to the Lord must bring his offering to the Lord from his peace offering sacrifice. 30 With his own hands he must bring the Lord’s gifts. He must bring the fat with the breast 39 to wave the breast as a wave offering before the Lord, 40 31 and the priest must offer the fat up in smoke on the altar, but the breast will belong to Aaron and his sons. 32 The right thigh you must give as a contribution offering 41 to the priest from your peace offering sacrifices. 33 The one from Aaron’s sons who presents the blood of the peace offering and fat will have the right thigh as his share, 34 for the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the contribution offering I have taken from the Israelites out of their peace offering sacrifices and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons from the people of Israel as a perpetual allotted portion.’” 42
35 This is the allotment of Aaron and the allotment of his sons from the Lord’s gifts on the day Moses 43 presented them to serve as priests 44 to the Lord. 36 This is what the Lord commanded to give to them from the Israelites on the day Moses 45 anointed them 46 – a perpetual allotted portion throughout their generations. 47
37 This is the law 48 for the burnt offering, the grain offering, 49 the sin offering, the guilt offering, the ordination offering, 50 and the peace offering sacrifice, 38 which the Lord commanded Moses on Mount Sinai on the day he commanded the Israelites to present their offerings to the Lord in the wilderness of Sinai.
