Vayikra - and He called - (Vayikra 1:1 - 6:7)

 

Leviticus 1

1 And יהוה called to Mosheh, and spoke to him from the Tent of Appointment, saying,

2 "Speak to the children of Yisra'ĕl, and say to them, ‘When anyone of you brings an offering to יהוה, you bring your offering of the livestock, of the herd or of the flock.

3 ‘If his offering is a burnt offering of the herd, let him bring a male, a perfect one. Let him bring it at the door of the Tent of Appointment, for his acceptance before יהוה.

4 ‘And he shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it shall be accepted on his behalf to make atonement for him.

5 ‘And he shall slaughter the bull before יהוה. And the sons of Aharon, the kohenim, shall bring the blood and sprinkle the blood all around on the altar which is at the door of the Tent of Appointment.

6 ‘And he shall skin the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces.

7 ‘And the sons of Aharon the kohen shall put fire on the altar, and lay the wood in order on the fire.

8 ‘And the sons of Aharon, the kohenim, shall arrange the pieces, with the head and the fat on the wood which is on the fire on the altar.

9 ‘But its entrails and its legs he washes with water. And the kohen shall burn all of it on the altar as a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה.

10 ‘And if his offering is from the flock, from the sheep or from the goats as a burnt offering, let him bring a male, a perfect one.

11 ‘And he shall slaughter it on the north side of the altar before יהוה. And the sons of Aharon, the kohenim, shall sprinkle its blood on the altar all around.

12 ‘And he shall cut it into its pieces, with its head and its fat, and the kohen shall arrange them on the wood which is on the fire on the altar.

13 ‘But the entrails and the legs he washes with water. And the kohen shall bring it all and burn it on the altar. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה.

14 ‘And if the burnt offering of his offering to יהוה is of birds, then he shall bring his offering of turtledoves or young pigeons.

15 ‘And the kohen shall bring it to the altar, and shall wring off its head, and burn it on the altar, and its blood shall be drained out at the side of the altar.

16 ‘And he shall remove its crop with its feathers and throw it beside the altar on the east side, into the place for ashes.

17 ‘And he shall split it at its wings, but not sever it. And the kohen shall burn it on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire. It is a burnt offering, an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה.

Leviticus 2

1 ‘And when anyone brings a grain offering to יהוה, his offering is to be of fine flour. And he shall pour oil on it, and put frankincense on it,

2 and he shall bring it to the sons of Aharon, the kohenim, and he shall take from it his hand filled with fine flour and oil with all the frankincense. And the kohen shall burn it as a remembrance portion on the altar, an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה.

3 ‘And the rest of the grain offering is for Aharon and his sons, most qodesh of the offerings to יהוה by fire.

4  ‘And so you bring as an offering a grain offering baked in the oven, unleavened cakes of fine flour mixed with oil, or unleavened thin cakes anointed with oil.

5 ‘But if your offering is a grain offering on the griddle, it is of fine flour, unleavened, mixed with oil.

6 ‘Divide it into bits and pour oil on it, it is a grain offering.

7 ‘And if your offering is a grain offering, in a stewing-pot, it is made of fine flour with oil.

8 ‘And you shall bring to יהוה the grain offering that is made of these, and shall present it to the kohen, and he shall bring it to the altar.

9 ‘And the kohen shall take from the grain offering a remembrance portion, and burn it on the altar, an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה.

10 ‘And the rest of the grain offering is for Aharon and his sons, most qodesh of the offerings to יהוה made by fire.

11 ‘No grain offering which you bring to יהוה is made with leaven, for you do not burn any leaven or any honey in an offering to יהוה made by fire.

12 ‘Bring them to יהוה as an offering of the first-fruits, but they are not burned on the altar for a sweet fragrance.

13 ‘And season with salt every offering of your grain offering, and do not allow the salt of the Covenant of your Elohim to be lacking from your grain offering. With all your offerings you bring salt.

14  ‘And if you bring a grain offering of your first-fruits to יהוה, bring for the grain offering of your first-fruits green heads of grain roasted on the fire, crushed heads of new grain.

15 ‘And you shall put oil on it, and lay frankincense on it. It is a grain offering.

16 ‘And the kohen shall burn the remembrance portion, from its crushed grain and from its oil, with all the frankincense, an offering made by fire to יהוה.

Leviticus 3

1  ‘And if that which he presents is a peace offering, if he is bringing it of the herd, whether male or female, he brings a perfect one before יהוה.

2 ‘And he shall lay his hand on the head of his offering, and slaughter it at the door of the Tent of Appointment. And the sons of Aharon, the kohenim, shall sprinkle the blood on the altar all around.

3  ‘And from the peace offering he shall bring an offering made by fire to יהוה, the fat that covers the entrails and all the fat that is on the entrails,

4 and the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them by the loins, and the appendage on the liver which he removes with the kidneys.

5  ‘And the sons of Aharon shall burn it on the altar upon the burnt offering, which is on the wood, which is on the fire, as an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה.

6 ‘And if that which he presents is from the flock, for a peace offering to יהוה, male or female, he brings a perfect one.

7 ‘If he is bringing a lamb as his offering, then he shall bring it before יהוה,

8  and shall lay his hand on the head of his offering, and slaughter it in front of the Tent of Appointment, and the sons of Aharon shall sprinkle its blood on the altar round about.

9  ‘And from the peace offering he shall bring near - as an offering made by fire to יהוה - its fat, all the fat tail which he removes close to the backbone, and the fat that covers the entrails and all the fat that is on the entrails,

10 and the two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the loins, and the appendage on the liver, which he removes with the kidneys.

11  ‘And the kohen shall burn them on the altar as food, an offering made by fire to יהוה.

12 ‘And if his offering is a goat, then he shall bring it before יהוה,

13 and shall lay his hand on its head and slaughter it before the Tent of Appointment. And the sons of Aharon shall sprinkle its blood on the altar all around.

14  ‘And from it he shall bring his offering, as an offering made by fire to יהוה, the fat that covers the entrails and all the fat that is on the entrails,

15 and the two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the loins, and the appendage on the liver, which he removes with the kidneys.

16 ‘And the kohen shall burn them on the altar as food, an offering made by fire for a sweet fragrance. All the fat belongs to יהוה.

17 ‘An everlasting Law throughout your generations in all your dwellings: you do not eat any fat or any blood.' "

Leviticus 4

1 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

2 "Speak to the children of Yisra'ĕl, saying, ‘When a being sins by mistake against any of the Commands of יהוה, which are not to be done, and shall do any of them:

3 ‘If the anointed kohen sins, bringing guilt on the people, then he shall bring to יהוה for his sin which he has sinned a young bull, a perfect one, as a sin offering,

4 and he shall bring the bull to the door of the Tent of Appointment before יהוה, and shall lay his hand on the bull's head, and slaughter the bull before יהוה.

5 ‘And the anointed kohen shall take some of the bull's blood and bring it to the Tent of Appointment,

6 and the kohen shall dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle some of the blood seven times before יהוה, in front of the veil of the qodesh place.

7  ‘And the kohen shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar of sweet incense before יהוה, which is in the Tent of Appointment, and pour all the blood of the bull at the base of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the Tent of Appointment.

8 ‘Then he takes all the fat of the bull as the sin offering, the fat that covers the entrails and all the fat which is on the entrails,

9 and the two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the loins, and the appendage on the liver, which he removes with the kidneys,

10 as it was taken from the bull of the peace offering. And the kohen shall burn them on the altar of the burnt offering.

11 ‘But the skin of the bull, and all its flesh, with its head and legs, its entrails and dung -

12 all of the bull - he shall bring outside the camp to a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn it on wood with fire. Where the ashes are poured out it is burned.

13 ‘And if the entire congregation of Yisra'ĕl strays by mistake, and the matter has been hidden from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done any of the Commands of יהוה, which are not to be done, and shall be guilty,

14 when the sin which they have sinned becomes known, then the assembly shall bring a young bull for the sin, and bring it before the Tent of Appointment.

15 ‘And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands on the head of the bull before יהוה, and the bull shall be slaughtered before יהוה.

16 ‘And the anointed kohen shall bring some of the bull's blood to the Tent of Appointment,

17 and the kohen shall dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle it seven times before יהוה, in front of the veil,

18  and put some of the blood on the horns of the altar which is before יהוה, which is in the Tent of Appointment, and pour all the blood at the base of the altar of burnt offering, which is at the door of the Tent of Appointment.

19 ‘Then he takes all the fat from it and shall burn it on the altar.

20 ‘And he shall do with the bull as he did with the bull as a sin offering - so shall he do it. And the kohen shall make atonement for them, and it shall be forgiven them.

21 ‘And he shall bring the bull outside the camp, and burn it as he burned the first bull. It is a sin offering for the assembly.

22 ‘When a ruler sins, and by mistake has done any of the Commands of יהוה his Elohim which are not to be done, and shall be guilty,

23 or if his sin which he has sinned is made known to him, then he shall bring as his offering a buck of the goats, a male, a perfect one.

24 ‘And he shall lay his hand on the head of the goat, and slaughter it at the place where they slaughter the burnt offering before יהוה. It is a sin offering.

25  ‘And the kohen shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger, and shall put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and pour its blood at the base of the altar of burnt offering,

26 and burn all its fat on the altar, like the fat of the slaughtering of the peace offering. And the kohen shall make atonement for him for his sin, and it shall be forgiven him.

27 ‘And if any being of the people of the land sins by mistake by doing any of the Commands of יהוה which are not to be done, and shall be guilty,

28 or if his sin which he has sinned shall be made known to him, then he shall bring as his offering a female goat, a perfect one, for his sin which he has sinned.

29  ‘And he shall lay his hand on the head of the sin offering, and slaughter the sin offering at the place of the burnt offering.

30  ‘And the kohen shall take some of its blood with his finger, and shall put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and pour all the blood at the base of the altar,

31 then remove all its fat, as fat is removed from the slaughtering of the peace offering. And the kohen shall burn it on the altar for a sweet fragrance to יהוה. And the kohen shall make atonement for him, and it shall be forgiven him.

32 ‘And if he brings a lamb as his sin offering, he brings a female, a perfect one.

33 ‘And he shall lay his hand on the head of the sin offering, and slaughter it as a sin offering at the place where they slaughter the burnt offering.

34  ‘And the kohen shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger, and shall put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and pour all the blood at the base of the altar.

35 ‘Then he removes all its fat, as the fat of the lamb is removed from the slaughtering of the peace offering. And the kohen shall burn it on the altar, according to the offerings made by fire to יהוה. So the kohen shall make atonement for his sin that he has sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.

Leviticus 5

 1  ‘And when a being sins in that he has heard the voice of swearing, and is a witness, or has seen, or has known, but does not reveal it, he shall bear his wickedness.

2  ‘Or when a being touches any unclean matter, or the carcass of an unclean beast, or the carcass of unclean livestock, or the carcass of unclean creeping creatures, and it has been hidden from him, he is unclean and guilty.

3  ‘Or when he touches uncleanness of man, any of his uncleanness by which he is unclean, and it has been hidden from him, when he shall know it, then he shall be guilty.

4  ‘Or when a being swears, speaking rashly with his lips to do evil or to do good, whatever it is that a man swears rashly with an oath, and it has been hidden from him, when he shall know it, then he shall be guilty of one of these.

5 ‘And it shall be, when he is guilty of one of these, that he shall confess that in which he has sinned,

6 and shall bring his guilt offering to יהוה for his sin which he has sinned, a female from the flock, a lamb or a female goat as a sin offering. And the kohen shall make atonement for him, for his sin.

7  ‘And if he is unable to bring a lamb, then he shall bring to יהוה, he who has sinned, two turtledoves or two young pigeons, one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering.

8  ‘And he shall bring them to the kohen, who shall bring near that which is for the sin offering first, and wring off its head from its neck, but not sever it.

9 ‘And he shall sprinkle some of the blood of the sin offering on the side of the altar, and the rest of the blood shall be drained out at the base of the altar. It is a sin offering.

10  ‘And he shall prepare the second as a burnt offering according to the Right-Ruling, and the kohen shall make atonement for him, for his sin which he has sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.

11 ‘But if he is unable to bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons, then he who sinned shall bring for his offering one-tenth of an ĕphah of fine flour as a sin offering. He puts no oil on it, nor does he put any frankincense on it, for it is a sin offering.

12  ‘And he shall bring it to the kohen, and the kohen shall take his hand filled with it as a remembrance portion, and burn it on the altar according to the offerings made by fire to יהוה. It is a sin offering.

13 ‘And the kohen shall make atonement for him, for his sin that he has sinned in any of these, and it shall be forgiven him. And it shall be the kohen's, like a grain offering.' "

14 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

15  "When a being commits a trespass, and has sinned by mistake against the qodesh matters of יהוה, then he shall bring to יהוה as his guilt offering a ram, a perfect one, from the flock, with your valuation in sheqels of silver according to the sheqel of the qodesh place, as a guilt offering.

16  "And he shall make good for the sin that he has done against that which is qodesh, and shall add one-fifth to it and give it to the kohen. And the kohen shall make atonement for him with the ram of the guilt offering, and it shall be forgiven him.

17  "And when any being sins, and has done what is not to be done, any of the Commands of יהוה, though he knew it not, yet he shall be guilty and shall bear his wickedness.

18 "Then he shall bring to the kohen a ram, a perfect one, from the flock, with your valuation, as a guilt offering. And the kohen shall make atonement for his mistake he committed unintentionally, though he did not know it, and it shall be forgiven him -

19 it is a guilt offering, he was truly guilty before יהוה."

Leviticus 6

1 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

2 "When any being sins, and committed a trespass against יהוה, and has lied to his neighbour about a deposit, or about a pledge, or about a robbery, or shall extort from his neighbour,

3 or has found what was lost and has lied concerning it, or sworn falsely, so that he sins in regard to any one of all these that a man does,

4  then it shall be, when he sins, and shall be guilty, that he shall return what he took by robbery, or what he has extorted, or the deposit which was deposited with him, or the lost item which he found,

5 or all that about which he swore falsely. He shall repay its total value, add one-fifth more to it, and give it to whom it belongs, on the day of his guilt offering.

6  "Then he brings his guilt offering to יהוה, a ram, a perfect one, from the flock, with your valuation, as a guilt offering, to the kohen.

7 "And the kohen shall make atonement for him before יהוה, and he shall be forgiven for whatever he did that made him guilty."
