The Daily Offerings

28 1  The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2  Command the Israelites, and say to them: My offering, the food for my offerings by fire, my pleasing odor, you shall take care to offer to me at its appointed time. 3  And you shall say to them, This is the offering by fire that you shall offer to the Lord: two male lambs a year old without blemish, daily, as a regular offering. 4  One lamb you shall offer in the morning, and the other lamb you shall offer at twilight; 5  also one-tenth of an ephah of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with one-fourth of a hin of beaten oil. 6  It is a regular burnt offering, ordained at Mount Sinai for a pleasing odor, an offering by fire to the Lord. 7  Its drink offering shall be one-fourth of a hin for each lamb; in the sanctuary you shall pour out a drink offering of strong drink to the Lord. 8  The other lamb you shall offer at twilight with a grain offering and a drink offering like the one in the morning; you shall offer it as an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to the Lord.

The Sabbath and Monthly Offerings

9  On the sabbath day: two male lambs a year old without blemish, and two-tenths of an ephah of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, and its drink offering- 10  this is the burnt offering for every sabbath, in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering. 11  At the beginnings of your months you shall offer a burnt offering to the Lord: two young bulls, one ram, seven male lambs a year old without blemish; 12  also three-tenths of an ephah of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, for each bull; and two-tenths of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, for the one ram; 13  and one-tenth of choice flour mixed with oil as a grain offering for every lamb-a burnt offering of pleasing odor, an offering by fire to the Lord. 14  Their drink offerings shall be half a hin of wine for a bull, one-third of a hin for a ram, and one-fourth of a hin for a lamb. This is the burnt offering of every month throughout the months of the year. 15  And there shall be one male goat for a sin offering to the Lord; it shall be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.

The Offerings at the Appointed Feasts

16  On the fourteenth day of the first month there shall be a passover offering to the Lord. 17  And on the fifteenth day of this month is a festival; seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten. 18  On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall not work at your occupations. 19  You shall offer an offering by fire, a burnt offering to the Lord: two young bulls, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old; see that they are without blemish. 20  Their grain offering shall be of choice flour mixed with oil: three-tenths of an ephah shall you offer for a bull, and two-tenths for a ram; 21  one-tenth shall you offer for each of the seven lambs; 22  also one male goat for a sin offering, to make atonement for you. 23  You shall offer these in addition to the burnt offering of the morning, which belongs to the regular burnt offering. 24  In the same way you shall offer daily, for seven days, the food of an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to the Lord; it shall be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering. 25  And on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not work at your occupations. 26  On the day of the first fruits, when you offer a grain offering of new grain to the Lord at your festival of weeks, you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not work at your occupations. 27  You shall offer a burnt offering, a pleasing odor to the Lord: two young bulls, one ram, seven male lambs a year old. 28  Their grain offering shall be of choice flour mixed with oil, three-tenths of an ephah for each bull, two-tenths for one ram, 29  one-tenth for each of the seven lambs; 30  with one male goat, to make atonement for you. 31  In addition to the regular burnt offering with its grain offering, you shall offer them and their drink offering. They shall be without blemish.

29 1  On the first day of the seventh month you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not work at your occupations. It is a day for you to blow the trumpets, 2  and you shall offer a burnt offering, a pleasing odor to the Lord: one young bull, one ram, seven male lambs a year old without blemish. 3  Their grain offering shall be of choice flour mixed with oil, three-tenths of one ephah for the bull, two-tenths for the ram, 4  and one-tenth for each of the seven lambs; 5  with one male goat for a sin offering, to make atonement for you. 6  These are in addition to the burnt offering of the new moon and its grain offering, and the regular burnt offering and its grain offering, and their drink offerings, according to the ordinance for them, a pleasing odor, an offering by fire to the Lord. 7  On the tenth day of this seventh month you shall have a holy convocation, and deny yourselves; you shall do no work. 8  You shall offer a burnt offering to the Lord, a pleasing odor: one young bull, one ram, seven male lambs a year old.

12  On the fifteenth day of the seventh month you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not work at your occupations. You shall celebrate a festival to the Lord seven days. 13  You shall offer a burnt offering, an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to the Lord: thirteen young bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old.

The Law concerning Vows

30 1  Then Moses said to the heads of the tribes of the Israelites: This is what the Lord has commanded. 2  When a man makes a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.

3  When a woman makes a vow to the Lord, or binds herself by a pledge, while within her father's house, in her youth, 4  and her father hears of her vow or her pledge by which she has bound herself, and says nothing to her; then all her vows shall stand, and any pledge by which she has bound herself shall stand. 5  But if her father expresses disapproval to her at the time that he hears of it, no vow of hers, and no pledge by which she has bound herself, shall stand; and the Lord will forgive her, because her father had expressed to her his disapproval. 6  If she marries, while obligated by her vows or any thoughtless utterance of her lips by which she has bound herself, 7  and her husband hears of it and says nothing to her at the time that he hears, then her vows shall stand, and her pledges by which she has bound herself shall stand. 8  But if, at the time that her husband hears of it, he expresses disapproval to her, then he shall nullify the vow by which she was obligated, or the thoughtless utterance of her lips, by which she bound herself; and the Lord will forgive her. 9  (But every vow of a widow or of a divorced woman, by which she has bound herself, shall be binding upon her.) 10  And if she made a vow in her husband's house, or bound herself by a pledge with an oath, 11  and her husband heard it and said nothing to her, and did not express disapproval to her, then all her vows shall stand, and any pledge by which she bound herself shall stand. 12  But if her husband nullifies them at the time that he hears them, then whatever proceeds out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning her pledge of herself, shall not stand. Her husband has nullified them, and the Lord will forgive her. 13  Any vow or any binding oath to deny herself, her husband may allow to stand, or her husband may nullify. 14  But if her husband says nothing to her from day to day, then he validates all her vows, or all her pledges, by which she is obligated; he has validated them, because he said nothing to her at the time that he heard of them. 15  But if he nullifies them some time after he has heard of them, then he shall bear her guilt. 16  These are the statutes that the Lord commanded Moses concerning a husband and his wife, and a father and his daughter while she is still young and in her father's house.
