Lev06-Law of Sacrifice (a)

The Lord spoke to Moses.

Restitution

If a person takes from his neighbor in any of these ways:

• Lies to his neighbor in that which was delivered to him to keep, or delivered to him by pledge

• Taken away a thing by violence

• Has deceived his neighbor

• Found that which was lost and lies concerning it

• Swears falsely

He has sinned and is guilty.

He shall restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more to it (20% more), and give it to him to whom it pertains, in the day of his trespass offering.

And he shall bring his trespass offering to the Lord,

• a ram without blemish out of the flock,

• And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the Lord: and

• It shall be forgiven him.

Command Aaron and his sons:

Law of the burnt offering:

It is the burnt offering (Leviticus 1), because of the burning on the altar all night until the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be burning in it.

• The priest shall put on his linen garment and his linen breeches

• He shall take up the ashes which the fire has consumed with the burnt offering on the altar and put them beside the altar.

• He shall put off his holy garments and put on other garments.

• He carry the ashes outside the camp to a clean place.

• The fire on the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out. The priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it;

• And he shall burn the fat of the peace offerings on it.

• The fire shall ever be burning on the altar; it shall never go out.

Law of the meat offering:

• The sons of Aaron shall offer it before the Lord, before the altar.

• He shall take a handful of the flour of the meat offering (Leviticus 2), and of the oil of it, and all the frankincense and shall burn it on the altar for a sweet savor to the Lord.

• Aaron and his sons shall eat the remainder of it, with unleavened bread, in the holy place; in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation. It shall not be baked with leaven.

• I have given it to them for their portion of my offerings made by fire;

• it is most holy, as is the sin offering (Leviticus 4) and as the trespass offering (Leviticus 5).

• All the males among the children of Aaron shall eat of it.

• It shall be a statute for ever in your generations concerning the offerings of the Lord made by fire: every one that touches them shall be holy.

This is the offering of Aaron and of his sons, which they shall offer to the Lord in the day when he is anointed.

• The tenth part of an ephah (an ephah equals a bushel) of fine flour for a meat offering perpetual, half of it in the morning, and half thereof at night.

• In a pan it shall be made with oil; and when it is baked, you shall bring it in:

• The baked pieces of the meat offering you shall offer for a sweet savor to the Lord.

• The priest of his sons that is anointed in his stead shall offer it:

• It is a statute for ever to the Lord; it shall be wholly burned (every part of it). For every meat offering for the priest shall be wholly burned: it shall not be eaten.

Law of the sin offering:

• In the place where the burnt offering is killed, the sin offering (Leviticus 4) shall be killed before the Lord: it is most holy.

• The priest that offers it for sin shall eat it in the holy place, in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation.

• Whatever shall touch the flesh of it shall be holy:

• When there is sprinkled of the blood of it on any garment, you shall wash that on which it was sprinkled in the holy place. But the earthen vessel in which it is sodden shall be broken: and if it be sodden in a brass pot, it shall be both scoured and rinsed in water.

• All the males among the priests shall eat of it: it is most holy.

• No sin offering, of which any of the blood is brought into the tabernacle of the congregation to reconcile with it in the holy place, shall be eaten: it shall be burned in the fire.
