1The Lord said to Moses:2“If anyone sins and is unfaithful to the Lord by deceiving a neighbor about something entrusted to them or left in their care or about something stolen, or if they cheat their neighbor,3or if they find lost property and lie about it, or if they swear falsely about any such sin that people may commit—4when they sin in any of these ways and realize their guilt, they must return what they have stolen or taken by extortion, or what was entrusted to them, or the lost property they found,5or whatever it was they swore falsely about. They must make restitution in full, add a fifth of the value to it and give it all to the owner on the day they present their guilt offering.6And as a penalty they must bring to the priest, that is, to the Lord, their guilt offering, a ram from the flock, one without defect and of the proper value.7In this way the priest will make atonement for them before the Lord, and they will be forgiven for any of the things they did that made them guilty.”
The Burnt Offering
8The Lord said to Moses:9“Give Aaron and his sons this command: ‘These are the regulations for the burnt offering: The burnt offering is to remain on the altar hearth throughout the night, till morning, and the fire must be kept burning on the altar.10The priest shall then put on his linen clothes, with linen undergarments next to his body, and shall remove the ashes of the burnt offering that the fire has consumed on the altar and place them beside the altar.11Then he is to take off these clothes and put on others, and carry the ashes outside the camp to a place that is ceremonially clean.12The fire on the altar must be kept burning; it must not go out. Every morning the priest is to add firewood and arrange the burnt offering on the fire and burn the fat of the fellowship offerings on it.13The fire must be kept burning on the altar continuously; it must not go out.
The Grain Offering
14“ ‘These are the regulations for the grain offering: Aaron’s sons are to bring it before the Lord, in front of the altar.15The priest is to take a handful of the finest flour and some olive oil, together with all the incense on the grain offering, and burn the memorial portion on the altar as an aroma pleasing to the Lord.16Aaron and his sons shall eat the rest of it, but it is to be eaten without yeast in the sanctuary area; they are to eat it in the courtyard of the tent of meeting.17It must not be baked with yeast; I have given it as their share of the food offerings presented to me. Like the sin offering and the guilt offering, it is most holy.18Any male descendant of Aaron may eat it. For all generations to come it is his perpetual share of the food offerings presented to the Lord. Whatever touches them will become holy.’ ”19The Lord also said to Moses,20“This is the offering Aaron and his sons are to bring to the Lord on the day he is anointed: a tenth of an ephah of the finest flour as a regular grain offering, half of it in the morning and half in the evening.21It must be prepared with oil on a griddle; bring it well-mixed and present the grain offering broken in pieces as an aroma pleasing to the Lord.22The son who is to succeed him as anointed priest shall prepare it. It is the Lord’s perpetual share and is to be burned completely.23Every grain offering of a priest shall be burned completely; it must not be eaten.”
The Sin Offering
24The Lord said to Moses,25“Say to Aaron and his sons: ‘These are the regulations for the sin offering: The sin offering is to be slaughtered before the Lord in the place the burnt offering is slaughtered; it is most holy.26The priest who offers it shall eat it; it is to be eaten in the sanctuary area, in the courtyard of the tent of meeting.27Whatever touches any of the flesh will become holy, and if any of the blood is spattered on a garment, you must wash it in the sanctuary area.28The clay pot the meat is cooked in must be broken; but if it is cooked in a bronze pot, the pot is to be scoured and rinsed with water.29Any male in a priest’s family may eat it; it is most holy.30But any sin offering whose blood is brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement in the Holy Place must not be eaten; it must be burned up.
English Standard Version
1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,2“If anyone sins and commits a breach of faith against the Lord by deceiving his neighbor in a matter of deposit or security, or through robbery, or if he has oppressed his neighbor (Ex 22:7; Ex 22:10; Le 19:11; Le 19:13; Nu 5:6; Mic 2:2)3or has found something lost and lied about it, swearing falsely—in any of all the things that people do and sin thereby— (Ex 22:11; Ex 23:4; Le 19:12; De 22:1)4if he has sinned and has realized his guilt and will restore what he took by robbery or what he got by oppression or the deposit that was committed to him or the lost thing that he found (Le 6:2)5or anything about which he has sworn falsely, he shall restore it in full and shall add a fifth to it, and give it to him to whom it belongs on the day he realizes his guilt. (Le 5:16; Nu 5:7; 2Sa 12:6; Lu 19:8)6And he shall bring to the priest as his compensation to the Lord a ram without blemish out of the flock, or its equivalent, for a guilt offering. (Le 5:15; Le 5:18)7And the priest shall make atonement for him before the Lord, and he shall be forgiven for any of the things that one may do and thereby become guilty.” (Le 4:26)
The Priests and the Offerings
8 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,9“Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt offering. The burnt offering shall be on the hearth on the altar all night until the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be kept burning on it.10And the priest shall put on his linen garment and put his linen undergarment on his body, and he shall take up the ashes to which the fire has reduced the burnt offering on the altar and put them beside the altar. (Ex 28:39; Le 1:16; Le 16:4; Eze 44:18)11Then he shall take off his garments and put on other garments and carry the ashes outside the camp to a clean place. (Le 4:12; Le 16:23; Eze 42:14; Eze 44:19)12The fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it; it shall not go out. The priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and he shall arrange the burnt offering on it and shall burn on it the fat of the peace offerings. (Le 3:3; Le 3:9; Le 3:14)13Fire shall be kept burning on the altar continually; it shall not go out.14“And this is the law of the grain offering. The sons of Aaron shall offer it before the Lord in front of the altar. (Le 2:1; Nu 15:4)15And one shall take from it a handful of the fine flour of the grain offering and its oil and all the frankincense that is on the grain offering and burn this as its memorial portion on the altar, a pleasing aroma to the Lord. (Le 2:2; Le 2:9)16And the rest of it Aaron and his sons shall eat. It shall be eaten unleavened in a holy place. In the court of the tent of meeting they shall eat it. (Le 2:3; Le 2:10; Le 6:26; Le 10:12; Eze 44:29; 1Co 9:13)17It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it as their portion of my food offerings. It is a thing most holy, like the sin offering and the guilt offering. (Le 2:3; Le 2:11; Le 6:25; Le 6:29; Le 7:1; Nu 18:9)18Every male among the children of Aaron may eat of it, as decreed forever throughout your generations, from the Lord’s food offerings. Whatever touches them shall become holy.”19The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,20“This is the offering that Aaron and his sons shall offer to the Lord on the day when he is anointed: a tenth of an ephah of fine flour as a regular grain offering, half of it in the morning and half in the evening. (Ex 16:36; Ex 29:1; Le 5:11)21It shall be made with oil on a griddle. You shall bring it well mixed, in baked pieces like a grain offering, and offer it for a pleasing aroma to the Lord. (Le 2:5; Le 7:9; Le 7:12)22The priest from among Aaron’s sons, who is anointed to succeed him, shall offer it to the Lord as decreed forever. The whole of it shall be burned. (Ex 29:25)23Every grain offering of a priest shall be wholly burned. It shall not be eaten.”24The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,25“Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin offering. In the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the sin offering be killed before the Lord; it is most holy. (Le 1:3; Le 1:5; Le 1:11; Le 4:24; Le 4:29; Le 4:33; Le 6:17; Le 6:29; Le 7:2)26The priest who offers it for sin shall eat it. In a holy place it shall be eaten, in the court of the tent of meeting. (Le 6:16; Le 10:17; Nu 18:9; Nu 18:19; Eze 44:27)27Whatever touches its flesh shall be holy, and when any of its blood is splashed on a garment, you shall wash that on which it was splashed in a holy place.28And the earthenware vessel in which it is boiled shall be broken. But if it is boiled in a bronze vessel, that shall be scoured and rinsed in water. (Le 11:32; Le 11:33; Le 15:12)29Every male among the priests may eat of it; it is most holy. (Le 6:25)30But no sin offering shall be eaten from which any blood is brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement in the Holy Place; it shall be burned up with fire. (Le 4:7; Le 4:11; Le 4:18; Le 4:21; Le 6:26; Le 6:29; Le 10:18; Le 16:27; Heb 13:11)
