Numbers 29:1-6 New International Version

29 1  " 'On the first day of the seventh month hold a sacred assembly and do no regular work. It is a day for you to sound the trumpets. 2  As an aroma pleasing to the Lord, offer a burnt offering of one young bull, one ram and seven male lambs a year old, all without defect. 3  With the bull offer a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah[1] of the finest flour mixed with olive oil; with the ram, two-tenths[2] ; 4  and with each of the seven lambs, one-tenth.[3] 5  Include one male goat as a sin offering[4] to make atonement for you. 6  These are in addition to the monthly and daily burnt offerings with their grain offerings and drink offerings as specified. They are food offerings presented to the Lord, a pleasing aroma.
