Numbers 28Modern English Version (MEV)

Daily Offerings

28 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Command the children of Israel and say to them: My offering, My bread for My sacrifices made by fire, as a pleasing aroma to Me, you will guard to offer to Me at their time. You will say to them: This is the fire offering which you will bring near to the Lord: two male lambs in their first year, without blemish, day by day, as a regular burnt offering. The one lamb you will offer in the morning, and the other lamb you will offer at evening, and one-tenth of an ephah[a] of flour as a grain offering, mingled with one-fourth of a hin[b] of beaten oil. It is a regular burnt offering, which was ordained at Mount Sinai as a pleasing aroma, a sacrifice made by fire to the Lord. Its drink offering will be one-fourth of a hin for the one lamb. In a holy place you will pour the strong wine to the Lord as a drink offering. The other lamb you will offer at evening. As the morning grain offering and its drink offering, you will offer it as an offering made by fire, a pleasing aroma to the Lord.

Sabbath Offerings

On the Sabbath day two lambs in their first year, without blemish, and two-tenths of an ephah[c] of flour as a grain offering, mixed with oil, and its drink offering— 10 this is the burnt offering of every Sabbath, in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.

Monthly Offerings

11 At the beginnings of your months you will offer a burnt offering to the Lord: two young bulls, one ram, seven lambs in their first year, without blemish; 12 three-tenths of an ephah[d] of flour as a grain offering, mixed with oil, for one bull; and two-tenths of an ephah of flour as a grain offering, mixed with oil, for one ram; 13 and one-tenth of an ephah of flour mixed with oil as a grain offering for one lamb; as a burnt offering of a pleasing aroma, a sacrifice made by fire to the Lord. 14 Their drink offerings will be one-half a hin[e] of wine for a bull, and one-third of a hin[f] for a ram, and one-fourth of a hin for a lamb. This is the burnt offering of each month throughout the months of the year. 15 Also one male goat as a sin offering to the Lord shall be offered, besides the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.

Passover Offerings

16 On the fourteenth day of the first month is the Passover of the Lord. 17 On the fifteenth day of this month is the feast. Unleavened bread will be eaten for seven days. 18 On the first day there will be a holy convocation. You will not do any ordinary work, 19 but you will offer a sacrifice made by fire as a burnt offering to the Lord: two young bulls, and one ram, and seven lambs in their first year. Be sure they are without blemish. 20 And their grain offering will be of flour mixed with oil. Three-tenths of an ephah you will offer for a bull, and two-tenths of an ephah for a ram. 21 One-tenth of an ephah you will offer for each of the seven lambs, 22 and one goat as a sin offering, to make an atonement for you. 23 You will offer these in addition to the burnt offering in the morning, which is for a regular burnt offering. 24 The same way you will offer daily, throughout the seven days, the food of the sacrifice made by fire, as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. It will be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering. 25 And on the seventh day you will have a holy assembly. You will not do any ordinary work.

Offerings at the Feast of Weeks

26 And on the day of the first fruits, when you bring a new grain offering to the Lord at your Feast of Weeks, you will have a holy assembly. You will do no ordinary work. 27 But you will offer the burnt offering as a pleasing aroma to the Lord: two young bulls, one ram, and seven lambs in their first year; 28 and their grain offering of flour mixed with oil, three-tenths of an ephah for one bull, two-tenths of an ephah for one ram, 29 one-tenth of an ephah for each of the seven lambs; 30 and one goat, to make an atonement for you. 31 Make sure they are without blemish. You will offer them with their drink offerings, besides the regular burnt offering and its grain offering.
