Leviticus 1 New American Standard Bible

Burnt Offerings

1 1  Then the Lord called to Moses and spoke to him from the tent of meeting , saying , 2  "Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, 'When any man of you brings an [1] offering to the Lord , you shall bring your [1]offering of animals from the herd or the flock .

3  'If his offering is a burnt offering from the herd , he shall offer it, a male without defect ; he shall offer it at the doorway of the tent of meeting , that he may be accepted before the Lord . 4  ' He shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering , that it may be accepted for him to make atonement on his behalf . 5  ' He shall slay the [3]young bull before the Lord ; and Aaron's sons the priests shall offer up the blood and sprinkle the blood around on the altar that is at the doorway of the tent of meeting . 6  ' He shall then skin the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces . 7  ' The sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire . 8  'Then Aaron's sons the priests shall arrange the pieces , the head and the suet over the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar . 9  'Its entrails , however, and its legs he shall wash with water . And the priest shall offer up in smoke all of it on the altar for a burnt offering , an offering by fire of a soothing aroma to the Lord .

10  'But if his offering is from the flock , of the sheep or of the goats , for a burnt offering , he shall offer it a male without defect . 11  ' He shall slay it on the side of the altar northward before the Lord , and Aaron's sons the priests shall sprinkle its blood around on the altar . 12  'He shall then cut it into its pieces with its head and its suet , and the priest shall arrange them on the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar . 13  'The entrails , however, and the legs he shall wash with water . And the priest shall offer all of it, and offer it up in smoke on the altar ; it is a burnt offering , an offering by fire of a soothing aroma to the Lord . 14  'But if his offering to the Lord is a burnt offering of birds , then he shall bring his offering from the turtledoves or from young pigeons . 15  'The priest shall bring it to the altar , and wring off its head and offer it up in smoke on the altar ; and its blood is to be drained out on the side of the altar . 16  'He shall also take away its crop with its feathers and cast it beside the altar eastward , to the place of the [4] ashes . 17  'Then he shall tear it by its wings , but shall not sever it. And the priest shall offer it up in smoke on the altar on the wood which is on the fire ; it is a burnt offering , an offering by fire of a soothing aroma to the Lord .
