26 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 27 (A)“When a bull or a sheep or a goat is born, it shall be seven days with its mother; and from the eighth day and thereafter it shall be accepted as an offering made by fire to the Lord. 28 Whether it is a cow or ewe, do not kill both her (B)and her young on the same day. 29 And when you (C)offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the Lord, offer it of your own free will. 30 On the same day it shall be eaten; you shall leave (D)none of it until morning: I am the Lord.

31 (E)“Therefore you shall keep My commandments, and perform them: I am the Lord. 32 (F)You shall not profane My holy name, but (G)I will be [a]hallowed among the children of Israel. I am the Lord who (H)sanctifies you, 33 (I)who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the Lord.”
