Leviticus (Author Moses)

1:1And Jehovah calleth unto Moses, and speaketh unto him out of the tent of meeting, saying,

1:2`Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, Any man of you when he doth bring near an offering to Jehovah, out of the cattle -- out of the herd, or out of the flock -- ye do bring near your offering.

1:3`If his offering is a burnt-offering out of the herd -- a male, a perfect one, he doth bring near, unto the opening of the tent of meeting he doth bring it near, at his pleasure, before Jehovah;

1:4and he hath laid his hand on the head of the burnt-offering, and it hath been accepted for him to make atonement for him;

1:5and he hath slaughtered the son of the herd before Jehovah; and sons of Aaron, the priests, have brought the blood near, and sprinkled the blood on the altar round about, which is at the opening of the tent of meeting.

1:6`And he hath stripped the burnt-offering, and hath cut it into its pieces;

1:7and the sons of Aaron the priest have put fire on the altar, and arranged wood on the fire;

1:8and sons of Aaron, the priests, have arranged the pieces, with the head and the fat, on the wood, which is on the fire, which is on the altar;

1:9and its inwards and its legs he doth wash with water; and the priest hath made perfume with the whole on the altar, a burnt-offering, a fire-offering of sweet fragrance to Jehovah.

1:10`And if his offering is out of the flock -- out of the sheep or out of the goats -- for a burnt-offering, a male, a perfect one, he doth bring near,

1:11and he hath slaughtered it by the side of the altar northward, before Jehovah; and sons of Aaron, the priests, have sprinkled its blood on the altar round about;

1:12and he hath cut it into its pieces, and its head and its fat, and the priest hath arranged them on the wood, which is on the fire, which is on the altar;

1:13and the inwards and the legs he doth wash with water, and the priest hath brought the whole near, and hath made perfume on the altar; it is a burnt-offering, a fire-offering of sweet fragrance to Jehovah.

1:14`And if his offering is a burnt-offering out of the fowl to Jehovah, than he hath brought near his offering out of the turtle-doves or out of the young pigeons,

1:15and the priest hath brought it near unto the altar, and hath wrung off its head, and hath made perfume on the altar, and its blood hath been wrung out by the side of the altar;

1:16and he hath turned aside its crop with its feathers, and hath cast it near the altar, eastward, unto the place of ashes;

1:17and he hath cleaved it with its wings (he doth not separate it), and the priest hath made it a perfume on the altar, on the wood, which is on the fire; it is a burnt-offering, a fire-offering of sweet fragrance to Jehovah.

2:1`And when a person bringeth near an offering, a present to Jehovah, of flour is his offering, and he hath poured on it oil, and hath put on it frankincense;

2:2and he hath brought it in unto the sons of Aaron, the priests, and he hath taken from thence the fulness of his hand of its flour and of its oil, besides all its frankincense, and the priest hath made perfume with its memorial on the altar, a fire-offering of sweet fragrance to Jehovah;

2:3and the remnant of the present is for Aaron and for his sons, most holy, of the fire-offerings of Jehovah.

2:4`And when thou bringest near an offering, a present baked in an oven, it is of unleavened cakes of flour mixed with oil, or thin unleavened cakes anointed with oil.

2:5`And if thine offering is a present made on the girdel, it is of flour, mixed with oil, unleavened;

2:6divide thou it into parts, and thou hast poured on it oil; it is a present.

2:7`And if thine offering is a present made on the frying-pan, of flour with oil it is made,

2:8and thou hast brought in the present which is made of these to Jehovah, and one hath brought it near unto the priest, and he hath brought it nigh unto the altar,

2:9and the priest hath lifted up from the present its memorial, and hath made perfume on the altar, a fire-offering of sweet fragrance to Jehovah;

2:10and the remnant of the present is for Aaron and for his sons, most holy, of the fire-offerings of Jehovah.

2:11No present which ye bring near to Jehovah is made fermented, for with any leaven or any honey ye perfume no fire-offering to Jehovah.

2:12`An offering of first-fruits -- ye bring them near to Jehovah, but on the altar they go not up, for sweet fragrance.

2:13And every offering -- thy present -- with salt thou dost season, and thou dost not let the salt of the covenant of thy God cease from thy present; with all thine offerings thou dost bring near salt.

2:14`And if thou bring near a present of first-ripe fruits to Jehovah, -- of green ears, roasted with fire, beaten out corn of a fruitful field thou dost bring near the present of thy first-ripe fruits,

2:15and thou hast put on it oil, and laid on it frankincense, it is a present;

2:16and the priest hath made perfume with its memorial from its beaten out corn, and from its oil, besides all its frankincense -- a fire-offering to Jehovah.

3:1`And if his offering is a sacrifice of peace-offerings, if out of the herd he is bringing near, whether male or female, a perfect one he doth bring near before Jehovah,

3:10and the two kidneys, and the fat which is on them, which is on the flanks, and the redundance above the liver, (beside the kidneys he doth turn it aside),

4:1And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,

4:2`Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying, When a person doth sin through ignorance against any of the commands of Jehovah regarding things which are not to be done, and hath done something against one of these --

4:3`If the priest who is anointed doth sin according to the guilt of the people, then he hath brought near for his sin which he hath sinned a bullock, a son of the herd, a perfect one, to Jehovah, for a sin-offering,

4:4and he hath brought in the bullock unto the opening of the tent of meeting before Jehovah, and hath laid his hand on the head of the bullock, and hath slaughtered the bullock before Jehovah.

4:6and the priest hath dipped his finger in the blood, and sprinkled of the blood seven times before Jehovah, at the front of the vail of the sanctuary;

4:7and the priest hath put of the blood on the horns of the altar of spice-perfume before Jehovah, which is in the tent of meeting, and all the blood of the bullock he doth pour out at the foundation of the altar of the burnt-offering, which is at the opening of the tent of meeting.

4:9and the two kidneys, and the fat which is on them, which is on the flanks, and the redundance above the liver, (beside the kidneys he doth turn it aside),

4:10as it is lifted up from the ox of the sacrifice of the peace-offerings; and the priest hath made them a perfume on the altar of the burnt-offering.

4:11`And the skin of the bullock, and all its flesh, besides its head, and besides its legs, and its inwards, and its dung --
