Lev01-Burnt Offerings

The Lord spoke to Moses out of the tabernacle of the congregation. The Lord (to Moses): Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them:

If any man of you shall bring an offering to the Lord, you shall bring your offering of cattle, of the herd and of the flock.

If his offering is a burnt sacrifice of the herd:

  • Let him offer a male without blemish.  
  • He shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the Lord.  
  • He shall put his hand on the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.  
  • He shall kill the bullock before the Lord.  
  • The priests, Aaron’s sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about on the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.  
  • He shall remove the skin from the burnt offering and cut it into pieces.  
  • The sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire on the altar, and lay the wood in order on the fire:  
  • The priests, Aaron’s sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat, in order on the wood that is on the fire which is on the altar: But he shall wash his entrails and his legs in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar.  

It is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to the Lord. 


And if his offering is of the flocks of sheep or goats, for a burnt sacrifice:

  • He shall bring it a male without blemish.  
  • He shall kill it on the side of the altar northward before the Lord. 
  • The priests, Aaron’s sons, shall sprinkle his blood round about on the altar.  
  • He shall cut it into pieces, with his head and his fat. 
  • The priest shall lay them in order on the wood that is on the fire which is on the altar: But he shall wash the entrails and the legs with water: and the priest shall bring it all, and burn it on the altar. 

It is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to the Lord.



If the burnt sacrifice for his offering to the Lord is of fowls:

He shall bring his offering of turtledoves or young pigeons.

  • The priest shall bring it to the altar, and wring off his head, and burn it on the altar; and the blood of it shall be wrung out at the side of the altar.  
  • The priest shall pluck away his crop with his feathers, and cast it beside the altar on the east part, by the place of the ashes.  
  • The priest shall cleave it with the wings of it, but shall not divide it asunder.  
  • The priest shall burn it on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire.  

It is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor to the Lord.
