AND the Lord called Moses again and spoke to him out of the tabernacle of witness, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, 2If any man of you shall bring gifts to the Lord, ye shall bring your gifts of the cattle and of the oxen and of the sheep. 3If his gift be a whole-burnt-offering, he shall bring an unblemished male of the herd to the door of the tabernacle of witness, he shall bring it as acceptable before the Lord. 4And he shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt-offering as a thing acceptable for him, to make atonement for him. 5And they shall slay the calf before the Lord; and the sons of Aaron the priests shall bring the blood, and they shall pour the blood round about on the altar, which is at the doors of the tabernacle of witness. 6And having flayed the whole burnt-offering, they shall divide it by its limbs. 7And the sons of Aaron the priests shall put fire on the altar, and shall pile wood on the fire. 8And the sons of Aaron the priests shall pile up the divided parts, and the head, and the fat on the wood on the fire, the wood which is on the altar. 9And the entrails and the feet they shall wash in water, and the priests shall put all on the altar: it is a burnt-offering, a sacrifice, a smell of sweet savour to the Lord. 10And if his gift be of the sheep to the Lord, or of the lambs, or of the kids for whole-burnt-offerings, he shall bring it a male without blemish. 11And he shall lay his hand on its head; and they shall kill it by the side of the altar, toward the north before the Lord, and the sons of Aaron the priests shall pour its blood on the altar round about. 12And they shall divide it by its limbs, and its head and its fat, and the priests shall pile them up on the wood which is on the fire, on the altar. 13And they shall wash the entrails and the feet with water, and the priest shall bring all the parts and put them on the altar: it is a burnt-offering, a sacrifice, a smell of sweet savour to the Lord. 14And if he bring his gift, a burnt-offering to the Lord, of birds, then shall he bring his gift of doves or pigeons. 15And the priest shall bring it to the altar, and shall wring off its head; and the priest shall put it on the altar, and shall wring out the blood at the bottom of the altar. 16And he shall take away the crop with the feathers, and shall cast it forth by

34And the cloud covered the tabernacle of witness, and the tabernacle was filled with the glory of the Lord. 35And Moses was not able to enter into the tabernacle of testimony, because the cloud overshadowed it, and the tabernacle was filled with the glory of the Lord. 36And when the cloud went up from the tabernacle, the children of Israel 2 prepared to depart with their baggage. 37And if the cloud went not up, they did not prepare to depart, till the day when the cloud went up 38For a cloud was on the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night before all Israel in all their 3 journeyings.
