The Daily Offerings

28 1  And the Lord said to Moses, 2  Give orders to the children of Israel and say to them, Let it be your care to give me my offerings at their regular times, the food of the offerings made by fire to me for a sweet smell. 3  Say to them, This is the offering made by fire which you are to give to the Lord; he-lambs of the first year without any mark, two every day as a regular burned offering. 4  Let one be offered in the morning, and the other at evening; 5  And the tenth part of an ephah of the best meal for a meal offering mixed with the fourth part of a hin of clear oil. 6  It is a regular burned offering, as it was ordered in Mount Sinai, for a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord. 7  And for its drink offering take the fourth part of a hin for one lamb: in the holy place let the wine be drained out for a drink offering for the Lord. 8  Let the other lamb be offered at evening; like the meal offering of the morning and its drink offering, let it be offered as an offering made by fire for a sweet smell to the Lord.

The Sabbath and Monthly Offerings

9  And on the Sabbath day, two he-lambs of the first year, without any mark, and two tenth parts of the best meal for a meal offering mixed with oil, and its drink offering: 10  This is the burned offering for every Sabbath day, in addition to the regular burned offering, and its drink offering. 11  And on the first day of every month you are to give a burned offering to the Lord; two oxen, one male sheep, and seven he-lambs of the first year, without any mark; 12  And three tenth parts of the best meal for a meal offering mixed with oil, for every ox; and two tenth parts of the best meal for a meal offering mixed with oil, for the one sheep; 13  And a separate tenth part of the best meal mixed with oil for a meal offering for every lamb; for a burned offering of a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord. 14  And their drink offerings are to be half a hin of wine for an ox, and the third part of a hin for a male sheep, and the fourth part of a hin for a lamb: this is the burned offering for every month through all the months of the year. 15  And one he-goat for a sin-offering to the Lord; it is to be offered in addition to the regular burned offering and its drink offering.

The Offerings at the Appointed Feasts

16  And in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, is the Lord's Passover. 17  On the fifteenth day of this month there is to be a feast; for seven days let your food be unleavened cakes. 18  On the first day there is to be a holy meeting: you may do no sort of field-work: 19  And you are to give an offering made by fire, a burned offering to the Lord; two oxen, one male sheep, and seven he-lambs of the first year, without any mark: 20  And their meal offering, the best meal mixed with oil: let three tenth parts of an ephah be offered for an ox and two tenth parts for a male sheep; 21  And a separate tenth part for every one of the seven lambs; 22  And one he-goat for a sin-offering to take away your sin. 23  These are to be offered in addition to the morning burned offering, which is a regular burned offering at all times. 24  In this way, every day for seven days, give the food of the offering made by fire, a sweet smell to the Lord: it is to be offered in addition to the regular burned offering, and its drink offering. 25  Then on the seventh day there will be a holy meeting; you may do no field-work. 26  And at the time of the first-fruits, when you give an offering of new meal to the Lord at your feast of weeks, there is to be a holy meeting: you may do no field-work: 27  And give a burned offering for a sweet smell to the Lord; two oxen, one male sheep, and seven he-lambs of the first year; 28  And their meal offering, the best meal mixed with oil, three tenth parts for an ox, two tenth parts for a male sheep, 29  And a separate tenth part for every one of the seven lambs; 30  And one he-goat to take away your sin. 31  These are in addition to the regular burned offering and its meal offering; take care that they are without any mark, and let them be offered with their drink offerings.

29 1  In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, let there be a holy meeting; on it you may do no field-work; let the day be marked by the blowing of horns; 2  And give to the Lord a burned offering for a sweet smell; one ox, one male sheep, seven he-lambs of the first year, without any mark on them: 3  And their meal offering, the best meal mixed with oil, three tenth parts for an ox, two tenth parts for a male sheep, 4  And a separate tenth part for every one of the seven lambs; 5  And one he-goat for a sin-offering, to take away your sin: 6  In addition to the burned offering of the new moon, and its meal offering, and the regular burned offering and its meal offering, and their drink offerings, as they are ordered, for a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord. 7  And on the tenth day of this seventh month there will be a holy meeting; keep yourselves from pleasure, and do no sort of work; 8  And give to the Lord a burned offering for a sweet smell; one ox, one male sheep, seven he-lambs of the first year: only those without any mark on them may be used: 9  And their meal offering, the best meal mixed with oil, three tenth parts for an ox, two tenth parts for a male sheep, 10  A separate tenth part for every one of the seven lambs; 11  One he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the offering for taking away your sin, and the regular burned offering and its meal offering, and their drink offerings.

12  And on the fifteenth day of the seventh month let there be a holy meeting; do no field-work, and keep a feast to the Lord for seven days; 13  And give a burned offering, an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord, thirteen oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, all without any mark on them; 14  And their meal offering, the best meal mixed with oil, three tenth parts for every one of the thirteen oxen, two tenth parts for every male sheep, 15  And a separate tenth part for every one of the fourteen lambs; 16  And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering. 17  On the second day of the feast give an offering of twelve oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark on them; 18  And their meal offering and their drink offerings for the oxen and the sheep and the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered: 19  And one he-goat for a sin-offering in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and their drink offerings. 20  And on the third day eleven oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark; 21  And their meal offering and drink offerings for the oxen, for the male sheep, and for the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered: 22  And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering. 23  And on the fourth day ten oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark: 24  And their meal offering and their drink offerings for the oxen, for the male sheep, and for the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered. 25  And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering. 26  And on the fifth day nine oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark: 27  And their meal offering and their drink offerings for the oxen, for the male sheep, and for the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered: 28  And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering. 29  And on the sixth day eight oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark: 30  And their meal offering and their drink offerings for the oxen, for the male sheep, and for the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered: 31  And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, its meal offering, and its drink offerings. 32  And on the seventh day seven oxen, two male sheep, fourteen he-lambs of the first year, without any mark: 33  And their meal offering and their drink offerings for the oxen, for the male sheep, and for the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered: 34  And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, its meal offering, and its drink offering. 35  On the eighth day let there be a holy meeting: you may do no field-work; 36  And give a burned offering, an offering made by fire of a sweet smell to the Lord: one ox, one male sheep, seven he-lambs of the first year, without any mark: 37  With the meal offering and the drink offerings for the ox, the male sheep, and the lambs, in relation to their number, as it is ordered: 38  And one he-goat for a sin-offering; in addition to the regular burned offering, and its meal offering, and its drink offering. 39  These are the offerings which you are to give to the Lord at your regular feasts, in addition to the offerings for an oath, and the free offerings you give, for your burned offerings and your drink offerings and your peace-offerings.

The Law concerning Vows

30 1  So Moses gave the children of Israel all these directions as the Lord had given him orders. 2  And Moses said to the heads of the tribes of the children of Israel, This is the order of the Lord.

3  When a man takes an oath to the Lord, or gives an undertaking having the force of an oath, let him not go back from his word, but let him do whatever he has said he will do. 4  If a woman, being young and under the authority of her father, takes an oath to the Lord or gives an undertaking; 5  If her father, hearing of her oath or the undertaking she has given, says nothing to her, then all her oaths and every undertaking she has given will have force. 6  But if her father, hearing of it, makes her take back her word, then the oaths or the undertakings she has given will have no force; and she will have forgiveness from the Lord, because her oath was broken by her father. 7  And if she is married to a husband at the time when she is under an oath or an undertaking given without thought; 8  If her husband, hearing of it, says nothing to her at the time, then the oaths she made and the undertakings she gave will have force. 9  But if her husband, hearing of it, makes her take it back, then the oath she made and the undertaking she gave without thought will have no force or effect, and she will have the Lord's forgiveness. 10  But an oath made by a widow or one who is no longer married to her husband, and every undertaking she has given, will have force. 11  If she made an oath while she was under the authority of her husband, 12  And her husband, hearing of it, said nothing to her and did not put a stop to it, then all her oaths and every undertaking she gave will have force. 13  But if her husband, on hearing of it, made them without force or effect, then whatever she has said about her oaths or her undertaking has no force: her husband has made them without effect, and she will have the Lord's forgiveness. 14  Every oath, and every undertaking which she gives, to keep herself from pleasure, may be supported or broken by her husband. 15  But if the days go on, and her husband says nothing whatever to her, then he is giving the support of his authority to her oaths and undertakings, because at the time of hearing them he said nothing to her. 16  But if at some time after hearing of them, he makes them without force, then he is responsible for her wrongdoing. 17  These are the laws which the Lord gave Moses in relation to a man and his wife, or a father and a young daughter who is under his authority.
