|Leviticus 1 |
1 The LORD called to Moses, and spoke to him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,
2 "Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, If any man of you brings an offering to the LORD, you shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock.
3 If his offering is a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish; he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD.
4 He shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.
5 He shall kill the bullock before the LORD; and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
6 He shall flay the burnt offering, and cut it into his pieces.
7 The sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire.
8 The priests, Aaron's sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar.
9 But his inwards and his legs shall be washed in water; and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to the LORD.
10 If his offering is of the flocks, namely, of the sheep, or of the goats, for a burnt sacrifice; he shall bring it a male without blemish.
11 He shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before the LORD; and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall sprinkle his blood round about upon the altar.
12 He shall cut it into his pieces, with his head and his fat; and the priest shall lay them in order on the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar.
13 But he shall wash the inwards and the legs with water; and the priest shall bring it all, and burn it upon the altar; it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to the LORD.
14 If the burnt sacrifice for his offering to the LORD is fowls, then he shall bring his offering of turtle doves, or of young pigeons.
15 The priest shall bring it to the altar, and wring off its head, and burn it on the altar; and its blood shall be wrung out at the side of the altar.
16 He shall pluck away his crop with his feathers, and cast it on the east side the altar by the place of the ashes.
17 He shall split it at its wings, but shall not divide it apart; and the priest shall burn it upon the altar, upon the wood that is upon the fire; it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to the LORD."
