Leviticus 6
1#5:20 in HebThe LORD said to Moses, 2If you sin:
by acting unfaithfully against the LORD;
by deceiving a fellow citizen concerning a deposit or pledged property;
by cheating a fellow citizen through robbery;
3or, though you’ve found lost property, you lie about it;
or by swearing falsely about anything that someone might do and so sin,
4at that point, once you have sinned and become guilty of sin, you must return the property you took by robbery or fraud, or the deposit that was left with you for safekeeping, or the lost property that you found, 5or whatever it was that you swore falsely about. You must make amends for the principal amount and add one-fifth to it. You must give it to the owner on the day you become guilty. 6You must bring to the priest as your compensation to the LORD a flawless ram from the flock at the standard value as a compensation offering. 7The priest will make reconciliation for you before the LORD, and you will be forgiven for anything you may have done that made you guilty.
Priestly instructions
8#6:1 in Heb The LORD said to Moses: 9Command Aaron and his sons: This is the Instruction for the entirely burned offering—the entirely burned offering that must remain on the altar hearth all night until morning, while the fire is kept burning. 10The priest will dress in his linen robe, with linen undergarments on his body. Because the fire will have devoured the entirely burned offering on the altar, he must remove the ashes and place them beside the altar. 11The priest will then take off his clothes, dress in a different set of clothes, and take the ashes outside the camp to a clean location. 12The altar fire must be kept burning; it must not go out. Each morning the priest will burn wood on it, will lay out the entirely burned offering on it, and will completely burn the fat of the well-being offering on it. 13A continuous fire must be kept burning on the altar; it must not go out.
14This is the Instruction for the grain offering: Aaron’s sons will present it before the LORD in front of the altar. 15The priest will remove a handful of the choice flour and oil from the grain offering, and all of the frankincense that is on it, and burn this token portion completely on the altar as a soothing smell to the LORD. 16Aaron and his sons will eat the rest of it. It must be eaten as unleavened bread in a holy place; the priests must eat it in the meeting tent’s courtyard. 17It must not be baked with leaven. I have made it the priests’ share from my food gifts. It is most holy like the purification offering and the compensation offering. 18Only the males from Aaron’s descendants can eat it as a permanent portion from the LORD’s food gifts throughout your future generations. Anything that touches these food gifts will become holy.
19The LORD said to Moses, 20This is the offering that Aaron and his sons must present to the LORD on the day of his anointment: one-tenth of an ephah#Two quarts; an ephah is approximately twenty quarts dry. of choice flour as a regular grain offering, half in the morning and half in the evening. 21It must be prepared on a griddle with oil. You must bring it thoroughly mixed up and must present it as a grain offering of crumbled pieces#Heb uncertain as a soothing smell to the LORD. 22The priest who is anointed from among Aaron’s sons to succeed him will prepare the offering as a permanent portion for the LORD. It will be completely burned as a complete offering. 23Every priestly grain offering must be a complete offering; it must not be eaten.
24The LORD said to Moses, 25Say to Aaron and his sons: This is the Instruction for the purification offering: The purification offering must be slaughtered before the LORD at the same place the entirely burned offering is slaughtered; it is most holy. 26The priest who offers it as a purification offering will eat it. It must be eaten in a holy place, in the meeting tent’s courtyard. 27Anything that touches the purification offering’s flesh will become holy. If some of its blood splashes on a garment, you must wash the bloodied part in a holy place. 28A pottery container in which the purification offering is cooked must be broken, but if it is cooked in a bronze container, that must be scrubbed and rinsed with water. 29Any male priest can eat it; it is most holy. 30But no purification offering can be eaten if blood from it is brought into the meeting tent to make reconciliation in the holy place; it must be burned with fire.
