Exodus 35 - Leviticus 1 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Sabbath Emphasized
35 Then Moses assembled all the congregation of the sons of Israel, and said to them, “These are the things that the Lord has commanded you to [a]do:
2 “For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a holy day, a sabbath of complete rest to the Lord; whoever does any work on it shall be put to death. 3 You shall not kindle a fire in any of your dwellings on the sabbath day.”
4 Moses spoke to all the congregation of the sons of Israel, saying, “This is the thing which the Lord has commanded, saying, 5 ‘Take from among you a [b]contribution to the Lord; whoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it as the Lord’s [c]contribution: gold, silver, and [d]bronze, 6 and [e]blue, purple and scarlet material, fine linen, goats’ hair, 7 and rams’ skins [f]dyed red, and porpoise skins, and acacia wood, 8 and oil for lighting, and spices for the anointing oil, and for the fragrant incense, 9 and onyx stones and setting stones for the ephod and for the [g]breastpiece.
10 ‘Let every skillful man among you come, and make all that the Lord has commanded: 11 the [h]tabernacle, its tent and its covering, its hooks and its boards, its bars, its pillars, and its [i]sockets; 12 the ark and its poles, the [j]mercy seat, and the curtain of the screen; 13 the table and its poles, and all its [k]utensils, and the bread of the [l]Presence; 14 the lampstand also for the light and its utensils and its lamps and the oil for the light; 15 and the altar of incense and its poles, and the anointing oil and the fragrant incense, and the screen for the doorway at the [m]entrance of the tabernacle; 16 the altar of burnt offering with its [n]bronze grating, its poles, and all its [o]utensils, the [p]basin and its stand; 17 the hangings of the court, its pillars and its [q]sockets, and the screen for the gate of the court; 18 the pegs of the tabernacle and the pegs of the court and their cords; 19 the [r]woven garments for ministering in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons, to minister as priests.’”
20 Then all the congregation of the sons of Israel departed from Moses’ presence. 21 Everyone whose heart [s]stirred him and everyone whose spirit [t]moved him came and brought the Lord’s [u]contribution for the work of the tent of meeting and for all its service and for the holy garments. 22 Then all [v]whose hearts moved them, both men and women, came and brought brooches and [w]earrings and signet rings and bracelets, all articles of gold; so did every man who [x]presented an offering of gold to the Lord. 23 Every man, [y]who had in his possession [z]blue and purple and scarlet material and fine linen and goats’ hair and rams’ skins [aa]dyed red and porpoise skins, brought them. 24 Everyone who could make a [ab]contribution of silver and [ac]bronze brought the Lord’s [ad]contribution; and every man [ae]who had in his possession acacia wood for any work of the service brought it. 25 All the [af]skilled women spun with their hands, and brought what they had spun, in [ag]blue and purple and scarlet material and in fine linen. 26 All the women whose heart [ah]stirred with a skill spun the goats’ hair. 27 The rulers brought the onyx stones and the stones for setting for the ephod and for the [ai]breastpiece; 28 and the spice and the oil for the light and for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense. 29 The [aj]Israelites, all the men and women, whose heart [ak]moved them to bring material for all the work, which the Lord had commanded through Moses to be done, brought a freewill offering to the Lord.
30 Then Moses said to the sons of Israel, “See, the Lord has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. 31 And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding and in knowledge and in all [al]craftsmanship; 32 [am]to make designs for working in gold and in silver and in [an]bronze, 33 and in the cutting of stones for settings and in the carving of wood, so as to perform in every inventive work. 34 He also has put in his heart to teach, both he and Oholiab, the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. 35 He has filled them with [ao]skill to perform every work of an engraver and of a designer and of an embroiderer, in [ap]blue and in purple and in scarlet material, and in fine linen, and of a weaver, as performers of every work and makers of designs.
The Tabernacle Underwritten
36 “Now Bezalel and Oholiab, and every [aq]skillful person in whom the Lord has put [ar]skill and understanding to know how to perform all the work [as]in the construction of the sanctuary, shall perform in accordance with all that the Lord has commanded.”
2 Then Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every [at]skillful person in [au]whom the Lord had put [av]skill, everyone whose heart stirred him, to come to the work to perform it. 3 They received from Moses all the [aw]contributions which the sons of Israel had brought [ax]to perform the work [ay]in the construction of the sanctuary. And they still continued bringing to him freewill offerings every morning. 4 And all the [az]skillful men who were performing all the work of the sanctuary came, each from [ba]the work which [bb]he was performing, 5 and they said to [bc]Moses, “The people are bringing much more than enough for the [bd]construction work which the Lord commanded us to [be]perform.” 6 So Moses issued a command, and a [bf]proclamation was circulated throughout the camp, saying, “Let no man or woman any longer perform work for the [bg]contributions of the sanctuary.” Thus the people were restrained from bringing any more. 7 For the [bh]material they had was sufficient and more than enough for all the work, to perform it.
8 All the [bi]skillful men among those who were performing the work made the [bj]tabernacle with ten curtains; of fine twisted linen and [bk]blue and purple and scarlet material, with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman, [bl]Bezalel made them. 9 The length of each curtain was twenty-eight [bm]cubits and the width of each curtain four [bn]cubits; all the curtains had [bo]the same measurements. 10 He [bp]joined five curtains to one another and the other five curtains he [bq]joined to one another. 11 He made loops of [br]blue on the edge of the [bs]outermost curtain in the first [bt]set; he did likewise on the edge of the curtain that was [bu]outermost in the second [bv]set. 12 He made fifty loops in the one curtain and he made fifty loops on the [bw]edge of the curtain that was in the second [bx]set; the loops were opposite each other. 13 He made fifty clasps of gold and [by]joined the curtains to one another with the clasps, so the tabernacle was [bz]a unit.
14 Then he made curtains of goats’ hair for a tent over the tabernacle; he made eleven curtains [ca]in all. 15 The length of each curtain was thirty cubits and four cubits the width of each curtain; the eleven curtains had [cb]the same measurements. 16 He [cc]joined five curtains by themselves and the other six curtains by themselves. 17 Moreover, he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that was outermost in the first [cd]set, and he made fifty loops on the edge of the curtain that was outermost in the second [ce]set. 18 He made fifty clasps of [cf]bronze to [cg]join the tent together so that it would be [ch]a unit. 19 He made a covering for the tent of rams’ skins [ci]dyed red, and a covering of porpoise skins above.
20 Then he made the boards for the tabernacle of acacia wood, standing upright. 21 Ten cubits was the length of [cj]each board and one and a half cubits the width of each board. 22 There were two tenons for each board, [ck]fitted to one another; thus he did for all the boards of the tabernacle. 23 He made the boards for the tabernacle: twenty boards [cl]for the south side; 24 and he made forty [cm]sockets of silver under the twenty boards; two [cn]sockets under one board for its two tenons and two [co]sockets under another board for its two tenons. 25 Then for the second side of the tabernacle, on the north side, he made twenty boards, 26 and their forty [cp]sockets of silver; two [cq]sockets under one board and two [cr]sockets under another board. 27 For the [cs]rear of the tabernacle, to the west, he made six boards. 28 He made two boards for the corners of the [ct]tabernacle at the [cu]rear. 29 They were double beneath, and together they were complete to its [cv]top [cw]to the first ring; thus he did with both of them for the two corners. 30 There were eight boards with their [cx]sockets of silver, sixteen [cy]sockets, [cz]two under every board.
31 Then he made bars of acacia wood, five for the boards of one side of the tabernacle, 32 and five bars for the boards of the [da]other side of the tabernacle, and five bars for the boards of the tabernacle for the [db]rear side to the west. 33 He made the middle bar to pass through in the [dc]center of the boards from end to end. 34 He overlaid the boards with gold and made their rings of gold as holders for the bars, and overlaid the bars with gold.
35 Moreover, he made the veil of [dd]blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine twisted linen; he made it with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman. 36 He made four pillars of acacia for it, and overlaid them with gold, with their hooks of gold; and he cast four [de]sockets of silver for them. 37 He made a screen for the doorway of the tent, of [df]blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine twisted linen, the work of a [dg]weaver; 38 and he made its five pillars with their hooks, and he overlaid their tops and their [dh]bands with gold; but their five [di]sockets were of [dj]bronze.
37 Now Bezalel made the ark of acacia wood; its length was two and a half [dk]cubits, and its width one and a half cubits, and its height one and a half cubits; 2 and he overlaid it with pure gold inside and out, and made a gold molding for it all around. 3 He cast four rings of gold for it on its four feet; even two rings on one side of it, and two rings on the [dl]other side of it. 4 He made poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. 5 He put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to carry [dm]it. 6 He made a [dn]mercy seat of pure gold, two and a half cubits [do]long and one and a half cubits [dp]wide. 7 He made two cherubim of gold; he made them of hammered work [dq]at the two ends of the mercy seat; 8 one cherub [dr]at the one end and one cherub [ds]at the other end; he made the cherubim of one piece with the mercy seat [dt]at the two ends. 9 The cherubim had their wings spread upward, covering the [du]mercy seat with their wings, with their faces toward each other; the faces of the cherubim were toward the mercy seat.
10 Then he made the table of acacia wood, two [dv]cubits [dw]long and a cubit [dx]wide and one and a half cubits [dy]high. 11 He overlaid it with pure gold, and made a gold molding for it all around. 12 He made a rim for it of a handbreadth all around, and made a gold molding for its rim all around. 13 He cast four gold rings for it and put the rings on the four corners that were on its four feet. 14 Close by the rim were the rings, the holders for the poles to carry the table. 15 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold, to carry the table. 16 He made the utensils which were on the table, its [dz]dishes and its pans and its [ea]bowls and its jars, with which to pour out drink offerings, of pure gold.
17 Then he made the lampstand of pure gold. He made the lampstand of hammered work, its base and its shaft; its cups, its [eb]bulbs and its flowers were of one piece with it. 18 There were six branches going out of its sides; three branches of the lampstand from the one side of it and three branches of the lampstand from the [ec]other side of it; 19 three cups shaped like almond blossoms, a [ed]bulb and a flower in one branch, and three cups shaped like almond blossoms, a [ee]bulb and a flower in the other branch—so for the six branches going out of the lampstand. 20 In the lampstand there were four cups shaped like almond blossoms, its [ef]bulbs and its flowers; 21 and a [eg]bulb was under the first pair of branches coming out of it, and a [eh]bulb under the second pair of branches coming out of it, and a [ei]bulb under the third pair of branches coming out of it, for the six branches coming out of the lampstand. 22 Their [ej]bulbs and their branches were of one piece with it; the whole of it was a single hammered work of pure gold. 23 He made its seven lamps with its snuffers and its [ek]trays of pure gold. 24 He made it and all its utensils from a talent of pure gold.
25 Then he made the altar of incense of acacia wood: a cubit [el]long and a cubit [em]wide, square, and two cubits [en]high; its horns were of one piece with it. 26 He overlaid it with pure gold, its top and its [eo]sides all around, and its horns; and he made a gold molding for it all around. 27 He made two golden rings for it under its molding, on its two sides—on opposite sides—as holders for poles with which to carry it. 28 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with gold. 29 And he made the holy anointing oil and the pure, fragrant incense of spices, the work of a perfumer.
The Tabernacle Completed
38 Then he made the altar of burnt offering of acacia wood, five [ep]cubits [eq]long, and five cubits [er]wide, square, and three cubits [es]high. 2 He made its horns on its four corners, its horns [et]being of one piece with it, and he overlaid it with [eu]bronze. 3 He made all the utensils of the altar, the pails and the shovels and the basins, the flesh hooks and the firepans; he made all its utensils of bronze. 4 He made for the altar a grating of bronze network beneath, under its ledge, reaching halfway up. 5 He cast four rings on the four ends of the bronze grating as holders for the poles. 6 He made the poles of acacia wood and overlaid them with bronze. 7 He inserted the poles into the rings on the sides of the altar, with which to carry it. He made it hollow with planks.
8 Moreover, he made the laver of bronze with its base of bronze, [ev]from the mirrors of the serving women who served at the doorway of the tent of meeting.
9 Then he made the court: [ew]for the south side the hangings of the court were of fine twisted linen, one hundred cubits; 10 their twenty pillars, and their twenty [ex]sockets, made of bronze; the hooks of the pillars and their [ey]bands were of silver. 11 For the north side there were one hundred cubits; their twenty pillars and their twenty [ez]sockets were of bronze, the hooks of the pillars and their [fa]bands were of silver. 12 For the west side there were hangings of fifty cubits with their ten pillars and their ten [fb]sockets; the hooks of the pillars and their [fc]bands were of silver. 13 For the [fd]east side fifty cubits. 14 The hangings for the one [fe]side of the gate were fifteen cubits, with their three pillars and their three [ff]sockets, 15 and so for the [fg]other [fh]side. [fi]On both sides of the gate of the court were hangings of fifteen cubits, with their three pillars and their three [fj]sockets. 16 All the hangings of the court all around were of fine twisted linen. 17 The [fk]sockets for the pillars were of [fl]bronze, the hooks of the pillars and their [fm]bands, of silver; and the overlaying of their tops, of silver, and all the pillars of the court were furnished with silver [fn]bands. 18 The screen of the gate of the court was the work of the [fo]weaver, of [fp]blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen. And the length was twenty cubits and the [fq]height was five cubits, corresponding to the hangings of the court. 19 Their four pillars and their four [fr]sockets were of bronze; their hooks were of silver, and the overlaying of their tops and their [fs]bands were of silver. 20 All the pegs of the [ft]tabernacle and of the court all around were of bronze.
The Cost of the Tabernacle
21 [fu]This is the number of the things for the [fv]tabernacle, the [fw]tabernacle of the testimony, as they were [fx]numbered according to the [fy]command of Moses, for the service of the Levites, by the hand of Ithamar the son of Aaron the priest. 22 Now Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, made all that the Lord had commanded Moses. 23 With him was Oholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, an engraver and a skillful workman and a [fz]weaver in [ga]blue and in purple and in scarlet material, and fine linen.
24 All the gold that was used for the work, in all the work of the sanctuary, even the gold of the wave offering, was 29 talents and 730 shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary. 25 The silver of those of the congregation who were [gb]numbered was 100 talents and 1,775 shekels, according to the shekel of the sanctuary; 26 a beka a head (that is, half a shekel according to the shekel of the sanctuary), for each one who passed over to those who were [gc]numbered, from twenty years old and upward, for 603,550 men. 27 The hundred talents of silver were for casting the [gd]sockets of the sanctuary and the [ge]sockets of the veil; one hundred [gf]sockets for the hundred talents, a talent for a [gg]socket. 28 Of the 1,775 shekels, he made hooks for the pillars and overlaid their tops and made [gh]bands for them. 29 The bronze of the wave offering was 70 talents and 2,400 shekels. 30 With it he made the [gi]sockets to the doorway of the tent of meeting, and the bronze altar and its bronze grating, and all the utensils of the altar, 31 and the [gj]sockets of the court all around and the [gk]sockets of the gate of the court, and all the pegs of the [gl]tabernacle and all the pegs of the court all around.
The Priestly Garments
39 Moreover, from the [gm]blue and purple and scarlet material, they made finely woven garments for ministering in the holy place [gn]as well as the holy garments which were for Aaron, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
2 He made the ephod of gold, and of [go]blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine twisted linen. 3 Then they hammered out gold sheets and cut them into threads [gp]to be woven in with the [gq]blue and the purple and the scarlet material, and the fine linen, the work of a skillful workman. 4 They made attaching shoulder pieces for [gr]the ephod; it was attached at its two upper ends. 5 The skillfully woven band which was on it was like its workmanship, [gs]of the same material: of gold and of [gt]blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine twisted linen, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
6 They made the onyx stones, set in gold filigree settings; they were engraved like the engravings of a signet, according to the names of the sons of Israel. 7 And he placed them on the shoulder pieces of the ephod, as memorial stones for the sons of Israel, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
8 He made the breastpiece, the work of a skillful workman, like the workmanship of the ephod: of gold and of [gu]blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen. 9 It was square; they made the breastpiece folded double, a span [gv]long and a span [gw]wide when folded double. 10 And they [gx]mounted four rows of stones on it. The first row was a row of ruby, topaz, and emerald; 11 and the second row, a turquoise, a sapphire and a diamond; 12 and the third row, a jacinth, an agate, and an amethyst; 13 and the fourth row, a beryl, an onyx, and a jasper. They were set in gold filigree settings when they were [gy]mounted. 14 The stones were corresponding to the names of the sons of Israel; they were twelve, corresponding to their names, engraved with the engravings of a signet, each with its name for the twelve tribes. 15 They made on the breastpiece chains like cords, of twisted cordage work in pure gold. 16 They made two gold filigree settings and two gold rings, and put the two rings on the two ends of the breastpiece. 17 Then they put the two gold cords in the two rings at the ends of the breastpiece. 18 They put the other two ends of the two cords on the two filigree settings, and put them on the shoulder pieces of the ephod at the front of it. 19 They made two gold rings and placed them on the two ends of the breastpiece, on its inner edge which was next to the ephod. 20 Furthermore, they made two gold rings and placed them on the bottom of the two shoulder pieces of the ephod, on the front of it, close to the place where it joined, above the woven band of the ephod. 21 They bound the breastpiece by its rings to the rings of the ephod with a [gz]blue cord, so that it would be on the woven band of the ephod, and that the breastpiece would not come loose from the ephod, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
22 Then he made the robe of the ephod of woven work, all of [ha]blue; 23 and the opening of the robe was at the top in the center, as the opening of a coat of mail, with a binding all around its opening, so that it would not be torn. 24 They made pomegranates of [hb]blue and purple and scarlet material and twisted linen on the hem of the robe. 25 They also made bells of pure gold, and put the bells between the pomegranates all around on the hem of the [hc]robe, 26 [hd]alternating a bell and a pomegranate all around on the hem of the robe for the service, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
27 They made the tunics of finely woven linen for Aaron and his sons, 28 and the turban of fine linen, and the decorated [he]caps of fine linen, and the linen breeches of fine twisted linen, 29 and the sash of fine twisted linen, and [hf]blue and purple and scarlet material, the work of the [hg]weaver, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
30 They made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and [hh]inscribed it like the engravings of a signet, “Holy to the Lord.” 31 They [hi]fastened a [hj]blue cord to it, to [hk]fasten it on the turban above, just as the Lord had commanded Moses.
32 Thus all the work of the [hl]tabernacle of the tent of meeting was completed; and the sons of Israel did according to all that the Lord had commanded Moses; so they did. 33 They brought the tabernacle to Moses, the tent and all its [hm]furnishings: its clasps, its boards, its bars, and its pillars and its [hn]sockets; 34 and the covering of rams’ skins [ho]dyed red, and the covering of porpoise skins, and the screening veil; 35 the ark of the testimony and its poles and the [hp]mercy seat; 36 the table, all its utensils, and the bread of the [hq]Presence; 37 the pure gold lampstand, [hr]with its arrangement of lamps and all its utensils, and the oil for the light; 38 and the gold altar, and the anointing oil and the fragrant incense, and the veil for the doorway of the tent; 39 the [hs]bronze altar and its [ht]bronze grating, its poles and all its utensils, the laver and its stand; 40 the hangings for the court, its pillars and its [hu]sockets, and the screen for the gate of the court, its cords and its pegs and all the [hv]equipment for the service of the tabernacle, for the tent of meeting; 41 the woven garments for ministering in the holy place and the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons, to minister as priests. 42 So the sons of Israel did all the work according to all that the Lord had commanded Moses. 43 And Moses [hw]examined all the work and behold, they had done it; just as the Lord had commanded, this they had done. So Moses blessed them.
The Tabernacle Erected
40 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “On the first day of the first month you shall set up the [hx]tabernacle of the tent of meeting. 3 You shall place the ark of the testimony there, and you shall screen the ark with the veil. 4 You shall bring in the table and [hy]arrange what belongs on it; and you shall bring in the lampstand and [hz]mount its lamps. 5 Moreover, you shall set the gold altar of incense before the ark of the testimony, and set up the veil for the doorway to the tabernacle. 6 You shall set the altar of burnt offering in front of the doorway of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting. 7 You shall set the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar and put water [ia]in it. 8 You shall set up the court all around and [ib]hang up the veil for the gateway of the court. 9 Then you shall take the anointing oil and anoint the tabernacle and all that is in it, and shall consecrate it and all its [ic]furnishings; and it shall be holy. 10 You shall anoint the altar of burnt offering and all its utensils, and consecrate the altar, and the altar shall be most holy. 11 You shall anoint the laver and its stand, and consecrate it. 12 Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the doorway of the tent of meeting and wash them with water. 13 You shall put the holy garments on Aaron and anoint him and consecrate him, that he may minister as a priest to Me. 14 You shall bring his sons and put tunics on them; 15 and you shall anoint them even as you have anointed their father, that they may minister as priests to Me; and their anointing will [id]qualify them for a perpetual priesthood throughout their generations.” 16 Thus Moses did; according to all that the Lord had commanded him, so he did.
17 Now in the first month [ie]of the second year, on the first day of the month, the [if]tabernacle was erected. 18 Moses erected the tabernacle and [ig]laid its [ih]sockets, and set up its boards, and [ii]inserted its bars and erected its pillars. 19 He spread the tent over the tabernacle and put the covering of the tent [ij]on top of it, just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 20 Then he took the testimony and put it into the ark, and [ik]attached the poles to the ark, and put the [il]mercy seat [im]on top of the ark. 21 He brought the ark into the tabernacle, and set up a veil for the screen, and screened off the ark of the testimony, just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 22 Then he put the table in the tent of meeting on the north side of the tabernacle, outside the veil. 23 He set the arrangement of bread in order on it before the Lord, just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 24 Then he placed the lampstand in the tent of meeting, opposite the table, on the south side of the tabernacle. 25 He lighted the lamps before the Lord, just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 26 Then he placed the gold altar in the tent of meeting in front of the veil; 27 and he burned fragrant incense on it, just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 28 Then he set up the [in]veil for the doorway of the tabernacle. 29 He set the altar of burnt offering before the doorway of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting, and offered on it the burnt offering and the meal offering, just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 30 He placed the laver between the tent of meeting and the altar and put water in it for washing. 31 From it Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet. 32 When they entered the tent of meeting, and when they approached the altar, they washed, just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 33 He erected the court all around the [io]tabernacle and the altar, and [ip]hung up the veil for the gateway of the court. Thus Moses finished the work.
The Glory of the Lord
34 Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 35 Moses was not able to enter the tent of meeting because the cloud had settled on it, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. 36 Throughout all their journeys whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the sons of Israel would set out; 37 but if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not set out until the day when it was taken up. 38 For throughout all their journeys, the cloud of the Lord was on the tabernacle by day, and there was fire in it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel.
The Law of Burnt Offerings
1 Then the Lord called to Moses and spoke to him from the tent of meeting, saying, 2 “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When any man of you brings an [iq]offering to the Lord, you shall bring your [ir]offering of animals from the herd or the flock. 3 If his offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he shall offer it, a male without defect; he shall offer it at the doorway of the tent of meeting, that he may be accepted before the Lord. 4 He shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, that it may be accepted for him to make atonement on his behalf. 5 He shall slay the [is]young bull before the Lord; and Aaron’s sons the priests shall offer up the blood and sprinkle the blood around on the altar that is at the doorway of the tent of meeting. 6 He shall then skin the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces. 7 The sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire. 8 Then Aaron’s sons the priests shall arrange the pieces, the head and the suet over the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar. 9 Its entrails, however, and its legs he shall wash with water. And the priest shall offer up in smoke all of it on the altar for a burnt offering, an offering by fire of a soothing aroma to the Lord.
10 ‘But if his offering is from the flock, of the sheep or of the goats, for a burnt offering, he shall offer it a male without defect. 11 He shall slay it on the side of the altar northward before the Lord, and Aaron’s sons the priests shall sprinkle its blood around on the altar. 12 He shall then cut it into its pieces with its head and its suet, and the priest shall arrange them on the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar. 13 The entrails, however, and the legs he shall wash with water. And the priest shall offer all of it, and offer it up in smoke on the altar; it is a burnt offering, an offering by fire of a soothing aroma to the Lord.
14 ‘But if his offering to the Lord is a burnt offering of birds, then he shall bring his offering from the turtledoves or from young pigeons. 15 The priest shall bring it to the altar, and wring off its head and offer it up in smoke on the altar; and its blood is to be drained out on the side of the altar. 16 He shall also take away its crop with its feathers and cast it beside the altar eastward, to the place of the [it]ashes. 17 Then he shall tear it by its wings, but shall not sever it. And the priest shall offer it up in smoke on the altar on the wood which is on the fire; it is a burnt offering, an offering by fire of a soothing aroma to the Lord.
