The Daily Offerings

28 The Lord said to Moses, 2  "Command the people of Israel, and say to them, 'My offering, my food for my offerings by fire, my pleasing odor, you shall take heed to offer to me in its due season.' 3  And you shall say to them, This is the offering by fire which you shall offer to the Lord: two male lambs a year old without blemish, day by day, as a continual offering. 4  The one lamb you shall offer in the morning, and the other lamb you shall offer in the evening; 5  also a tenth of an ephah of fine flour for a cereal offering, mixed with a fourth of a hin of beaten oil. 6  It is a continual burnt offering, which was ordained at Mount Sinai for a pleasing odor, an offering by fire to the Lord. 7  Its drink offering shall be a fourth of a hin for each lamb; in the holy place you shall pour out a drink offering of strong drink to the Lord. 8  The other lamb you shall offer in the evening; like the cereal offering of the morning, and like its drink offering, 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 fine flour for a cereal offering, mixed with oil, and its drink offering: 10  this is the burnt offering of every sabbath, besides the continual 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 fine flour for a cereal offering, mixed with oil, for each bull; and two tenths of fine flour for a cereal offering, mixed with oil, for the one ram; 13  and a tenth of fine flour mixed with oil as a cereal offering for every lamb; for 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, a third of a hin for a ram, and a fourth of a hin for a lamb; this is the burnt offering of each month throughout the months of the year. 15  Also one male goat for a sin offering to the Lord; it shall be offered besides the continual burnt offering and its drink offering.

The Offerings at the Appointed Feasts

16  "On the fourteenth day of the first month is the Lord's passover. 17  And on the fifteenth day of this month is a feast; seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten. 18  On the first day there shall be a holy convocation: you shall do no laborious work, 19  but 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  also their cereal offering of fine flour mixed with oil; three tenths of an ephah shall you offer for a bull, and two tenths for a ram; 21  a 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 besides the burnt offering of the morning, which is for a continual 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 besides the continual burnt offering and its drink offering. 25  And on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. 26  "On the day of the first fruits, when you offer a cereal offering of new grain to the Lord at your feast of weeks, you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work, 27  but offer a burnt offering, a pleasing odor to the Lord; two young bulls, one ram, seven male lambs a year old; 28  also their cereal offering of fine flour mixed with oil, three tenths of an ephah for each bull, two tenths for one ram, 29  a tenth for each of the seven lambs; 30  with one male goat, to make atonement for you. 31  Besides the continual burnt offering and its cereal offering, you shall offer them and their drink offering. See that they are without blemish.

29 "On the first day of the seventh month you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work. 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  also their cereal offering of fine flour mixed with oil, three tenths of an 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  besides the burnt offering of the new moon, and its cereal offering, and the continual burnt offering and its cereal offering, and their drink offering, 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 afflict yourselves; you shall do no work, 8  but you shall offer a burnt offering to the Lord, a pleasing odor: one young bull, one ram, seven male lambs a year old; they shall be to you without blemish; 9  and their cereal offering of fine flour mixed with oil, three tenths of an ephah for the bull, two tenths for the one ram, 10  a tenth for each of the seven lambs: 11  also one male goat for a sin offering, besides the sin offering of atonement, and the continual burnt offering and its cereal offering, and their drink offerings.

12  "On the fifteenth day of the seventh month you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no laborious work, and you shall keep a feast to the Lord seven days; 13  and 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; they shall be without blemish; 14  and their cereal offering of fine flour mixed with oil, three tenths of an ephah for each of the thirteen bulls, two tenths for each of the two rams, 15  and a tenth for each of the fourteen lambs; 16  also one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its cereal offering and its drink offering. 17  "On the second day twelve young bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish, 18  with the cereal offering and the drink offerings for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, by number, according to the ordinance; 19  also one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering and its cereal offering, and their drink offerings. 20  "On the third day eleven bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish, 21  with the cereal offering and the drink offerings for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, by number, according to the ordinance; 22  also one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering and its cereal offering and its drink offering. 23  "On the fourth day ten bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish, 24  with the cereal offering and the drink offerings for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, by number, according to the ordinance; 25  also one male goat for a sin offering, besides the continual burnt offering, its cereal offering and its drink offering. 26  "On the fifth day nine bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish, 27  with the cereal offering and the drink offerings for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, by number, according to the ordinance; 28  also one male goat for a sin offering; besides the continual burnt offering and its cereal offering and its drink offering. 29  "On the sixth day eight bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish, 30  with the cereal offering and the drink offerings for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, by number, according to the ordinance; 31  also one male goat for a sin offering; besides the continual burnt offering, its cereal offering, and its drink offerings. 32  "On the seventh day seven bulls, two rams, fourteen male lambs a year old without blemish, 33  with the cereal offering and the drink offerings for the bulls, for the rams, and for the lambs, by number, according to the ordinance; 34  also one male goat for a sin offering; besides the continual burnt offering, its cereal offering, and its drink offering. 35  "On the eighth day you shall have a solemn assembly: you shall do no laborious work, 36  but you shall offer a burnt offering, an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to the Lord: one bull, one ram, seven male lambs a year old without blemish, 37  and the cereal offering and the drink offerings for the bull, for the ram, and for the lambs, by number, according to the ordinance; 38  also one male goat for a sin offering; besides the continual burnt offering and its cereal offering and its drink offering. 39  "These you shall offer to the Lord at your appointed feasts, in addition to your votive offerings and your freewill offerings, for your burnt offerings, and for your cereal offerings, and for your drink offerings, and for your peace offerings." 40  And Moses told the people of Israel everything just as the Lord had commanded Moses.

The Law concerning Vows

30 Moses said to the heads of the tribes of the people of Israel, "This is what the Lord has commanded. 2  When a man vows 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  Or when a woman vows a vow to the Lord, and binds herself by a pledge, while within her father's house, in her youth, 4  and her father hears of her vow and of her pledge by which she has bound herself, and says nothing to her; then all her vows shall stand, and every pledge by which she has bound herself shall stand. 5  But if her father expresses disapproval to her on the day that he hears of it, no vow of hers, no pledge by which she has bound herself, shall stand; and the Lord will forgive her, because her father opposed her. 6  And if she is married to a husband, while under 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 on the day that he hears; then her vows shall stand, and her pledges by which she has bound herself shall stand. 8  But if, on the day that her husband comes to hear of it, he expresses disapproval, then he shall make void her vow which was on her, and the thoughtless utterance of her lips, by which she bound herself; and the Lord will forgive her. 9  But any vow of a widow or of a divorced woman, anything by which she has bound herself, shall stand against her. 10  And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound herself by a pledge with an oath, 11  and her husband heard of it, and said nothing to her, and did not oppose her; then all her vows shall stand, and every pledge by which she bound herself shall stand. 12  But if her husband makes them null and void on the day 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 made them void, and the Lord will forgive her. 13  Any vow and any binding oath to afflict herself, her husband may establish, or her husband may make void. 14  But if her husband says nothing to her from day to day, then he establishes all her vows, or all her pledges, that are upon her; he has established them, because he said nothing to her on the day that he heard of them. 15  But if he makes them null and void after he has heard of them, then he shall bear her iniquity." 16  These are the statutes which the Lord commanded Moses, as between a man and his wife, and between a father and his daughter, while in her youth, within her father's house.
