Restitution Offerings

1 a The LORD told Moses, 2“A person sins against the LORD by acting treacherously toward his neighbor regarding something entrusted to his care, regarding security for a loan, robbery, if he has oppressed his neighbor, 3if he has found something that had been lost and then lied about it, or if he makes a false oath about any of these things, thus committing a sin with respect to these things. 4If that person has sinned and has been found guilty, then he is to return the stolen thing that he took or obtained by oppression, or the security that had been entrusted to him, or the lost thing that he had found, 5or the thing about which he had given a false oath. He is to restore it in full, add a fifth to it, then give it to whom it belongs the very day he’s found guilty. 6Now as to his guilt offering, he is to bring to the LORD a ram without defect from the flock, estimated as to its value, to the priest. 7Then the priest is to make atonement for him in the LORD’s presence, and it will be forgiven him regarding whatever he did.”

8 b The LORD told Moses, 9“Deliver these orders to Aaron and his sons concerning the regulations for burnt offerings: The burnt offering is to remain on the hearth of the altar throughout the entire night until morning, and the fire on the altar is to be kept burning along with it. 10The priest is to clothe himself with a linen robe and undergarments.c Then he is to take the ashes of the burnt offering on the altar that had been consumed by the fire and set them beside the altar. 11Then he is to change his clothes, dressing himself with a different set of clothes, and take the ashes to a clean place outside the camp. 12The fire on the altar is to be kept burning continuously without being extinguished. The priest is to burn wood on it every morning, arrange burnt offerings over it, and then burn the fat contained in the peace offerings over it. 13The fire is to continue to burn on the altar and is never to be extinguished.”

Grain Offerings

14“This is the law concerning grain offerings: Aaron’s sons are to offer them in the LORD’s presence, in front of the altar. 15He is to take a handful of fine flour for a grain offering, some olive oil, and all of the frankincense for the grain offering, and make a sacrifice of smoke on the altar as a memorial portion, a pleasing aroma to the LORD. 16Aaron and his sons are to eat what remains of the unleavened offering at this sacred place—the court of the Tent of Meeting. 17It is not to be baked with leaven. I’ve given it as their portion out of my offerings made by fire. It’s a most holy thing, like the sin and guilt offerings. 18Every male of Aaron’s sons is to eat it as a portion continually allotted for your generations from the offerings made by fire to the Lord. Anyone who touches them is to be holy.”

Offerings by the Priests

19Then the LORD told Moses, 20“This is the offering that Aaron and his sons are to offer to the LORD the day he is anointed: a tenth of an ephahd of flour is to be offered throughout the day, half in the morning and half in the evening. 21It is to be prepared with olive oil on a griddle. Once it has been mixed thoroughly, bake it, bring it in pieces, and offer it like a grain offering of broken pieces, a pleasing aroma to the LORD. 22The anointed priest who succeeds him from among his sons is to offere it. As a permanent statute, it is to be offered whole and made to smoke in the LORD’s presence. 23Every grain offering from a priest is to be burnedf whole. It is not to be eaten.”

Sin Offerings

24Then the LORD told Moses, 25“Tell Aaron and his sons that this is the regulation concerning sin offerings: Slaughter the sin offering in the same place where the whole burnt offering is slaughtered—in the LORD’s presence. It’s a most holy thing. 26The priest who offers it as a sin offering is to eat it at a sacred place in the court of the Tent of Meeting. 27Whoever touches its meat will be holy. If some of its blood sprinkles on a garment, wash where it was sprinkled in a sacred place. 28The earthen vessel in which it was boiled is to be broken, unless it was boiled in a bronze vessel, in which case it is to be polished very well and rinsed in water. 29Every male among the priests is to eat it. It’s a most sacred thing. 30Any sin offering from which its blood was brought to the Tent of Meeting to make atonement in the sacred place is not to be eaten. Instead, it is to be incinerated.”
