15 The Lord said to Moses,2 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘After you enter the land I am giving you as a home3 and you present to the Lord food offerings from the herd or the flock, as an aroma pleasing to the Lord—whether burnt offerings or sacrifices, for special vows or freewill offerings or festival offerings—4 then the person who brings an offering shall present to the Lord a grain offering of a tenth of an ephah[a] of the finest flour mixed with a quarter of a hin[b] of olive oil.5 With each lamb for the burnt offering or the sacrifice, prepare a quarter of a hin of wine as a drink offering.
6 “‘With a ram prepare a grain offering of two-tenths of an ephah[c] of the finest flour mixed with a third of a hin[d] of olive oil,7 and a third of a hin of wine as a drink offering. Offer it as an aroma pleasing to the Lord.
8 “‘When you prepare a young bull as a burnt offering or sacrifice, for a special vow or a fellowship offering to the Lord,9 bring with the bull a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah[e] of the finest flour mixed with half a hin[f] of olive oil,10 and also bring half a hin of wine as a drink offering. This will be a food offering, an aroma pleasing to the Lord.11 Each bull or ram, each lamb or young goat, is to be prepared in this manner.12 Do this for each one, for as many as you prepare.
13 “‘Everyone who is native-born must do these things in this way when they present a food offering as an aroma pleasing to the Lord.14 For the generations to come, whenever a foreigner or anyone else living among you presents a food offering as an aroma pleasing to the Lord, they must do exactly as you do.15 The community is to have the same rules for you and for the foreigner residing among you; this is a lasting ordinance for the generations to come. You and the foreigner shall be the same before the Lord:16 The same laws and regulations will apply both to you and to the foreigner residing among you.’”
17 The Lord said to Moses,18 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land to which I am taking you19 and you eat the food of the land, present a portion as an offering to the Lord.20 Present a loaf from the first of your ground meal and present it as an offering from the threshing floor.21 Throughout the generations to come you are to give this offering to the Lord from the first of your ground meal.
