Leviticus 1New Life Version (NLV)

Burnt Gifts on the Altar

The Lord called to Moses and spoke to him from the meeting tent, saying, “Speak to the people of Israel. Tell them, ‘When any of you bring a gift in worship to the Lord, bring your gift of animals from the herd or the flock. If his gift is a burnt gift from the cattle, he should bring a male that is perfect. He should give it at the door of the meeting tent, so he will be pleasing to the Lord. He will lay his hand on the head of the burnt gift and it will be received to take away his sins. He will kill the young bull before the Lord. Then Aaron’s sons, the religious leaders, will take the blood and put it around on the altar that is at the door of the meeting tent. He will skin the burnt gift and cut it into pieces. The sons of Aaron the religious leader will put fire on the altar and lay wood on the fire. Then Aaron’s sons, the religious leaders, will lay the pieces, the head and the fat on the wood that is on the altar fire. But he will wash its legs and inside parts with water. Then the religious leader will burn all of it on the altar as a burnt gift. It will be a gift by fire, a pleasing smell to the Lord.

10 ‘If his gift is a burnt gift from the sheep or the goats of the flock, he should give a male that is perfect. 11 He should kill it on the north side of the altar before the Lord. Aaron’s sons, the religious leaders, will put its blood around on the altar. 12 Then he will cut it into pieces with its head and its fat. And the religious leader will lay them on the wood that is on the altar fire. 13 But he will wash the legs and inside parts with water. The religious leader will burn all of it on the altar as a burnt gift. It will be a gift by fire, a pleasing smell to the Lord.

14 ‘If his gift is a burnt gift of birds, he should bring his gift from the turtle-doves or young pigeons. 15 The religious leader will bring it to the altar and take off its head. Then he will burn it on the altar. Its blood will flow down on the side of the altar. 16 He will take the part of its body where the food it eats is kept and with its feathers throw them on the ashes on the east side of the altar. 17 Then he will tear it by its wings, but not divide it. And the religious leader will burn it on the altar as a burnt gift. It will be a gift by fire, a pleasing smell to the Lord.
