Chapter 1

LEV.1:1 Now the LORD called to Moses, and spoke to him from the tabernacle of meeting, saying,
LEV.1:2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When any one of you brings an offering to the LORD, you shall bring your offering of the livestock-of the herd and of the flock.
LEV.1:3 ‘If his offering is a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish; he shall offer it of his own free will at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before the LORD.
LEV.1:4 ‘Then he shall put his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted on his behalf to make atonement for him.
LEV.1:5 ‘He shall kill the bull before the LORD; and the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall bring the blood and sprinkle the blood all around on the altar that is by the door of the tabernacle of meeting.
LEV.1:6 ‘And he shall skin the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces.
LEV.1:7 ‘The sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire on the altar, and lay the wood in order on the fire.
LEV.1:8 ‘Then the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat in order on the wood that is on the fire upon the altar;
LEV.1:9 ‘but he shall wash its entrails and its legs with water. And the priest shall burn all on the altar as a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, a sweet aroma to the LORD.
LEV.1:10 ‘If his offering is of the flocks-of the sheep or of the goats-as a burnt sacrifice, he shall bring a male without blemish.
LEV.1:11 ‘He shall kill it on the north side of the altar before the LORD; and the priests, Aaron’s sons, shall sprinkle its blood all around on the altar.
LEV.1:12 ‘And he shall cut it into its pieces, with its head and its fat; and the priest shall lay them in order on the wood that is on the fire upon the altar;
LEV.1:13 ‘but he shall wash the entrails and the legs with water. Then the priest shall bring it all and burn it on the altar; it is a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, a sweet aroma to the LORD.
LEV.1:14 ‘And if the burnt sacrifice of his offering to the LORD is of birds, then he shall bring his offering of turtledoves or young pigeons.
LEV.1:15 ‘The priest shall bring it to the altar, wring off its head, and burn it on the altar; its blood shall be drained out at the side of the altar.
LEV.1:16 ‘And he shall remove its crop with its feathers and cast it beside the altar on the east side, into the place for ashes.
LEV.1:17 ‘Then he shall split it at its wings, but shall not divide it completely; and the priest shall burn it on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire. It is  a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, a sweet aroma to the LORD.
