Offerings 28 1God spoke to Moses: 2“Command the People of Israel. Tell them, You’re in charge of presenting my food, my Fire–Gifts of pleasing fragrance, at the set times. 3Tell them, This is the Fire–Gift that you are to present to God: two healthy yearling lambs each day as a regular Whole–Burnt–Offering. 4Sacrifice one lamb in the morning, the other in the evening, 5together with two quarts of fine flour mixed with a quart of olive oil for a Grain–Offering. 6This is the standard Whole–Burnt–Offering instituted at Mount Sinai as a pleasing fragrance, a Fire–Gift to God. 7The Drink–Offering that goes with it is a quart of strong beer with each lamb. Pour out the Drink–Offering before God in the Sanctuary. 8Sacrifice the second lamb in the evening with the Grain–Offering and Drink–Offering the same as in the morning—a Fire–Gift of pleasing fragrance for God. 9“On the Sabbath, sacrifice two healthy yearling lambs, together with the Drink–Offering and the Grain–Offering of four quarts of fine flour mixed with oil. 10This is the regular Sabbath Whole–Burnt–Offering, in addition to the regular Whole–Burnt–Offering and its Drink–Offering. 11“On the first of the month offer a Whole–Burnt–Offering to God: two young bulls, one ram, and seven male yearling lambs—all healthy. 12“A Grain–Offering of six quarts of fine flour mixed with oil goes with each bull, four quarts of fine flour mixed with oil with the ram, 13and two quarts of fine flour mixed with oil with each lamb. This is for a Whole–Burnt–Offering, a pleasing fragrance, a Fire–Gift to God. 14Also, Drink–Offerings of two quarts of wine for each bull, one and a quarter quarts of wine for the ram, and a quart of wine for each lamb are to be poured out. “This is the first of the month Whole–Burnt–Offering to be made throughout the year. 15In addition to the regular Whole–Burnt–Offering with its accompanying Drink–Offering, a he–goat is to be offered to God as an Absolution–Offering. 16“God’s Passover is to be held on the fourteenth day of the first month.17On the fifteenth day of this month hold a festival. “For seven days, eat only unraised bread: 18Begin the first day in holy worship; don’t do any regular work that day. 19Bring a Fire–Gift to God, a Whole–Burnt–Offering: two young bulls, one ram, and seven male yearling lambs—all healthy. 20Prepare a Grain–Offering of six quarts of fine flour mixed with oil for each bull, four quarts for the ram, 21and two quarts for each lamb, 22plus a goat as an Absolution–Offering to atone for you. 23“Sacrifice these in addition to the regular morning Whole–Burnt–Offering. 24Prepare the food this way for the Fire–Gift, a pleasing fragrance to God, every day for seven days. Prepare it in addition to the regular Whole–Burnt–Offering and Drink–Offering. 25“Conclude the seventh day in holy worship; don’t do any regular work on that day. 26“On the Day of Firstfruits when you bring an offering of new grain to God on your Feast–of–Weeks, gather in holy worship and don’t do any regular work. 27Bring a Whole–Burnt–Offering of two young bulls, one ram, and seven male yearling lambs as a pleasing fragrance to God. 28Prepare a Grain–Offering of six quarts of fine flour mixed with oil for each bull, four quarts for the ram, 29and two quarts for each lamb, 30plus a he–goat as an Absolution–Offering to atone for you. 31“These are all over and above the daily Whole–Burnt–Offering and its Grain–Offering and the Drink–Offering. Remember, the animals must be healthy.
