Vayikra 4Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

And Hashem spoke unto Moshe, saying,

Speak unto the Bnei Yisroel, saying, If a nefesh shall sin through ignorance (unintentionally) against any of the mitzvot of Hashem concerning things which ought not to be done, and shall do against any of them;

If the Kohen HaMoshiach [anointed priest, i.e. Kohen Gadol; see Ps 110:4 on the Moshiach Kohen] do sin, bringing guilt upon the people; then let him bring for his chattat (sin), which he hath sinned, a young bull tamim (without blemish) unto Hashem for a chattat (sin offering).

And he shall bring the young bull unto the entrance of the Ohel Mo’ed before Hashem; and shall lay his hand upon the young bull’s head, and slaughter (shachat) the young bull before Hashem.

And the Kohen HaMoshiach shall take of the young bull’s dahm, and bring it to the Ohel Mo’ed;

And the kohen shall dip his forefinger in the dahm, and sprinkle of the dahm seven times before Hashem, before the Parochet (curtain) of the Kodesh.

And the kohen shall put some of the dahm upon the horns of the Mizbe’ach Ketoret HaSammim (Altar of Fragrant Incense) before Hashem, which is in the Ohel Mo’ed; and shall pour the rest of the dahm of the young bull at the base of the Mizbe’ach HaOlah which is at the entrance of the Ohel Mo’ed.

And he shall take off from it all the chelev (fat) of the young bull for the chattat (sin offering); the chelev (fat) that covereth the innards, and all the chelev (fat) that is upon the innards,

And the two kidneys, and the chelev (fat) that is upon them, which is by the loins, and the diaphragm above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he remove,

10 Just as it was removed from the ox of the zevach hashelamim; and the kohen shall burn them upon the Mizbe’ach HaOlah.

11 And the hide of the young bull, and all his basar, with his head, and with his legs, and his innards, and his dung,

12 Even the rest of the young bull shall he carry forth outside the machaneh unto a makom tahor, where the ashes are poured out, and burn him on the wood with eish; where the ashes are poured out shall he be burned.

13 And if the kol Adat Yisroel sin through ignorance (unintentionally), and the thing be hid from the eyes of the Kahal (Assembly), and they have done any one thing against any of the mitzvot of Hashem concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty;

14 When the chattat (sin), which they have sinned against it, is known, then the Kahal (Assembly) shall offer a young bull for the chattat (sin), and bring him before the Ohel Mo’ed.

15 And the Ziknei HaEdah shall lay their hands upon the head of the young bull before Hashem; and the young bull shall be slaughtered (shachat) before Hashem.

16 And the Kohen HaMoshiach [see Lv 4:3] shall bring of the young bull’s dahm to the Ohel Mo’ed;

17 And the kohen shall dip his forefinger in some of the dahm, and sprinkle [see Isa 52:15] it seven times before Hashem, even before the Parochet (curtain).

18 And he shall put some of the dahm upon the horns of the Mizbe’ach which is before Hashem, that is in the Ohel Mo’ed, and shall pour out the rest of the dahm at the base of the Mizbe’ach HaOlah, which is at the entrance of the Ohel Mo’ed.

19 And he shall remove all his chelev (fat) from him, and burn it upon the Mizbe’ach.

20 And he shall do with the young bull as he did with the young bull for a chattat (sin offering), so shall he do with this; and the kohen shall make kapporah for them, and it shall be forgiven them.

21 And he shall carry forth the young bull outside the machaneh, and burn him as he burned the first young bull; it is a chattat (sin offering) for the Kahal.

22 When a nasi hath sinned, and done something through ignorance against any of the mitzvot of Hashem Elohav concerning things which should not be done, and is guilty;

23 Or if his chattat (sin), wherein he hath sinned, come to his knowledge; he shall bring his korban, a male goat tamim (without blemish);

24 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and slaughter (shachat) it in the place where they slaughter the olah (burnt offering) before Hashem; it is a chattat (sin offering).

25 And the kohen shall take of the dahm of the chattat (sin offering) with his forefinger, and put it upon the horns of the Mizbe’ach HaOlah, and shall pour out his dahm at the base of the Mizbe’ach HaOlah.

26 And he shall burn all his chelev (fat) upon the Mizbe’ach, as the chelev (fat) of the zevach hashelamim; and the kohen shall make kapporah for him as concerning his chattat (sin), and it shall be forgiven him.

27 And if a nefesh of the am ha’aretz sin through ignorance (unintentionally), while he doeth any thing against any of the mitzvot of Hashem concerning things which ought not to be done, and be guilty;

28 Or if his chattat (sin), which he hath sinned, come to his knowledge; then he shall bring his korban, a female goat, a temimah nekevah (a female without blemish), for his chattat (sin) which he hath sinned.

29 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the chattat (sin offering), and slaughter (shachat) the chattat (sin offering) in the place of the olah (burnt offering).

30 And the kohen shall take of the dahm thereof with his forefinger, and put it upon the horns of the Mizbe’ach HaOlah, and shall pour out the rest of the dahm thereof at the base of the Mizbe’ach.

31 And he shall remove all the chelev (fat) thereof, as the chelev (fat) is removed from off the zevach hashelamim; and the kohen shall burn it upon the Mizbe’ach for a re’ach nicho’ach unto Hashem; and the kohen shall make kapporah for him, and it shall be forgiven him.

32 And if he bring a keves (lamb) for a chattat (sin offering), he shall bring it a nekevah temimah (female without blemish).

33 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the chattat (sin offering), and slaughter (shachat) it for a chattat (sin offering) in the place where they slaughter the olah (burnt offering).

34 And the kohen shall take of the dahm of the chattat (sin offering) with his forefinger, and put it upon the horns of the Mizbe’ach HaOlah (Altar of Burnt Offering), and shall pour out the rest of the dahm thereof at the base of the Mizbe’ach;

35 And he shall remove all the chelev (fat) thereof, just as the chelev (fat) of the keves (lamb) is taken away from the zevach hashelamim (sacrifice of the peace offerings); and the kohen shall burn them upon the Mizbe’ach, according to the offerings made by eish unto Hashem; and the kohen shall make kapporah for his chattat (sin) that he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.
