And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2The soul which shall have sinned, and 1wilfully overlooked the commandments of the Lord, and shall have dealt falsely in the affairs of his neighbour in the matter of a deposit, or concerning fellowship, or concerning plunder, or has in anything wronged his neighbour, 3or has found that which was lost and shall have lied concerning it, and shall have sworn unjustly concerning any one of all the things, whatsoever a man may do, so as to sin hereby; 4it shall come


to pass, whensoever he shall have sinned, and transgressed, that he shall restore the plunder which he has seized, or redress the injury which he has commited or restore the deposit which was entrusted to him, or the lost article which he has found of any 2 kind, about which he swore unjustly he shall even restore it in full; and he shall add to it a fifth part besides; he shall restore it to him whose it is in the day in which he happens to be convicted. 5And he shall bring to the Lord for his trespass, a ram of the flock, without blemish, of value to the amount of the thing in which he trespassed. 6And the priest shall make atonement for him before the Lord and he shall be forgiven for any one of all the things which he did and trespassed in it.

7And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 8Charge Aaron and his sons, saying, 9This is the law of whole-burnt-offering; this is the whole-burnt-offering 3 in its burning on the altar all the night till the morning; and the fire of the altar shall burn on it, it shall not be put out. 10And the priest shall put on the linen tunic, and he shall put the linen drawers on his body; and shall take away that which has been thoroughly burnt, which the fire shall have consumed, even the whole-burnt-offering from the altar and he shall put it near the altar. 11And he shall put off his robe, and put on another robe, and he shall take forth the offering that has been burnt without the camp into a clean place. 12And the fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it, and shall not be 4 extinguished; and the priest shall burn on it wood every morning, and shall heap on it the whole-burnt-offering,and shall lay on it the fat of the peace-offering. 13And the fire shall always burn on the altar; it shall not be extinguished. 14This is the law of the sacrifice, which the sons of Aaron shall bring near before the Lord, before the altar. 15And he shall take from it a handful of the fine flour of the sacrifice with its oil, and with all its frankincense, which are upon the sacrifice; and he shall offer up on the altar a burnt-offering as a sweet-smelling savour, a memorial of it to the Lord. 16And Aaron and his sons shall eat that which is left of it: it shall be eaten without leaven in a holy place, they shall eat it in the court of the tabernacle of witness. 17It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it as a portion to them of the burnt-offerings of the Lord: it is most holy, as the offering for sin, and as the offering for trespass. 18Every male of the priests shall eat it: it is a perpetual ordinance throughout your generations of the burnt-offerings of the Lord; whosoever shall touch them shall be hallowed.

19And the Lord spoke to Moses saying, 20This is the gift of Aaron and of his sons, which they shall offer to the Lord in the day in which thou shalt anoint him; the tenth of an ephah of fine flour for a sacrifice continually, the half of it in the morning, and the half of it in the evening. 21It shall be made with oil 5 in a frying-pan; he shall offer it kneaded and 6 in rolls, an offering of


fragments, an offering of a sweet savour unto the Lord. 22The anointed priest who is in his place, one of his sons, shall offer it: it is a perpetual statute, it shall all be consumed. 23And every sacrifice of a priest shall be thoroughly burnt, and shall not be eaten. 24And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 25Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin-offering;--in the place where they slay the whole-burnt-offering, they shall slay the sin-offerings before the Lord; they are most holy. 26The priest that offers it shall eat it: in a holy place it shall be eaten, in the court of the tabernacle of witness. 27Every one that touches the flesh of it shall be holy, and on whosesoever garment any of its blood shall have been sprinkled, whosoever 7 shall have it sprinkled, shall be washed in the holy place. 28And the earthen vessel, in whichsoever it shall have been sodden, shall be broken; and if it shall have been sodden in a brazen vessel, he shall scour it and wash it with water. 29Every male among the priests shall eat it: it is most holy to the Lord. 30And no offerings for sin, of whose blood there shall be brought any into the tabernacle of witness to make atonement in the holy place, shall be eaten: they shall be burned with fire.

31And this is the law of the ram for the trespass-offering; it is most holy. 32In the place where they slay the whole-burnt-offering, they shall slay the ram and he shall pour out the blood at the bottom of the altar round about. 33And he shall offer all the fat from it; and the 8 loins, and all the fat that covers the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards, 34and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, that which is upon the thighs, and the caul upon the liver with the kidney, he shall take them away. 35And the priest shall offer them on the altar a burnt-offering to the Lord; it is for trespass. 36Every male of the priest shall eat them, in the holy place they shall eat them: they are most holy. 37as the sin-offering, so also is the trespass-offering. There is one law of them; the priest who shall make atonement with it, his it shall be. 38And as for the priest who offers a man's whole-burnt-offering, the skin of the whole-burnt-offering which he offers, shall be his. 39And every sacrifice which shall be 9 prepared in the oven, and every one which shall be prepared on the hearth, or on a frying-pan, it is the property of the priest that offers it; it shall be his. 40And every sacrifice made up with oil, or not made up with oil, shall belong to the sons of Aaron, an equal portion to each.
