Numbers 15

Various Offerings

1And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying,

2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When you have come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you,

3And will make an offering by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill offering, or in your solemn feasts, to make a sweet aroma unto the LORD, of the herd, or of the flock:

4Then shall he that offers his offering unto the LORD bring a grain offering of a tenth of an ephah of flour mixed with the fourth part of a hin of oil.

5And the fourth part of a hin of wine for a drink offering shall you prepare with the burnt offering or sacrifice, for one lamb.

6Or for a ram, you shall prepare for a grain offering two tenths of an ephah of flour mixed with the third part of a hin of oil.

7And for a drink offering you shall offer the third part of a hin of wine, for a sweet aroma unto the LORD.

8And when you prepare a bullock for a burnt offering, or for a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings unto the LORD:

9Then shall he bring with a bullock a grain offering of three tenths of an ephah of flour mixed with half a hin of oil.

10And you shall bring for a drink offering half a hin of wine, for an offering made by fire, of a sweet aroma unto the LORD.

11Thus shall it be done for one bullock, or for one ram, or for a lamb, or a kid.

12According to the number that you shall prepare, so shall you do to every one according to their number.

13All that are born in this country shall do these things after this manner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet aroma unto the LORD.

14And if a stranger sojourns with you, or whosoever is among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet aroma unto the LORD; as you do, so he shall do.

15One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourns with you, an ordinance forever in your generations: as you are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD.

16One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourns with you.

17And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying,

18Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When you come into the land where I bring you,

19Then it shall be, that, when you eat of the bread of the land, you shall offer up a heave offering unto the LORD.

20You shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for a heave offering: as you do the heave offering of the threshingfloor, so shall you offer it up.

21Of the first of your dough you shall give unto the LORD a heave offering throughout your generations.

22And if you have erred, and not observed all these commandments, which the LORD has spoken unto Moses,

23Even all that the LORD has commanded you by the hand of Moses, from the day that the LORD commanded Moses, and onward throughout your generations;

24Then it shall be, if anything is committed by ignorance without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bullock for a burnt offering, for a sweet aroma unto the LORD, with its grain offering, and its drink offering, according to the ordinance, and one kid of the goats for a sin offering.

25And the priest shall make an atonement for all the congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them; for it is ignorance: and they shall bring their offering, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD, and their sin offering before the LORD, for their ignorance:

26And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the children of Israel, and the stranger that sojourns among them; seeing all the people were in ignorance.

27And if any soul sins through ignorance, then he shall bring a female goat of the first year for a sin offering.

28And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sins ignorantly, when he sins by ignorance before the LORD, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him.

29You shall have one law for him that sins through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourns among them.

30But the soul that does anything presumptuously, whether he is born in the land, or is a stranger, the same reproaches the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.

31Because he has despised the word of the LORD, and has broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him.

Sabbath-Breaker Put to Death

32And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.

33And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation.

34And they put him in custody, because it was not declared what should be done to him.

35And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones outside the camp.

36And all the congregation brought him outside the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses.

Tassels on Garments

37And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying,

38Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them tassels in the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the tassel of the corners a thread of blue:

39And it shall be unto you a tassel, that you may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that you seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you use to follow harlotry:

40That you may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.

41I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God.
