Tsav - command! - (Vayikra 6:8 - 8:36) 

 

8 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

9 "Command Aharon and his sons, saying, ‘This is the Torah of the burnt offering: This is the burnt offering, because it is burned on the altar all night until morning, and the fire of the altar is kept burning on it.

10  ‘And the kohen shall put on his linen garment, and put his linen trousers on his body, and shall take up the ashes of the burnt offering which the fire has consumed on the altar, and shall put them beside the altar.

11 ‘And he shall take off his garments, and put on other garments, and shall bring the ashes outside the camp to a clean place.

12 ‘And the fire on the altar is kept burning on it, it is not put out. And the kohen shall burn wood on it every morning, and arrange the burnt offering on it, and shall burn on it the fat of the peace offerings -

13 fire is continually kept burning on the altar, it is not put out.

14 ‘And this is the Torah of the grain offering: The sons of Aharon shall bring it near before יהוה, in front of the altar,

15  and shall take from it with his hand from the fine flour of the grain offering, and from its oil, and all the frankincense which is on the grain offering, and shall burn it on the altar for a sweet fragrance, as its remembrance portion to יהוה.

16 ‘Then Aharon and his sons eat the rest of it. It is eaten with unleavened bread, in the qodesh place. They eat it in the courtyard of the Tent of Appointment.

17 ‘It is not baked with leaven. I have given it to them as their portion of My offerings made by fire, it is most qodesh, like the sin offering and the guilt offering.

18 ‘All the males among the children of Aharon eat it - a Law forever in your generations concerning the offerings made by fire to יהוה. All that touches them is to be qodesh.' "

19 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

20 "This is the offering of Aharon and his sons, which they bring near to יהוה, beginning on the day when he is anointed: one-tenth of an ĕphah of fine flour as a daily grain offering, half of it in the morning and half of it at night.

21 "It is made on a griddle with oil. Bring it in mixed, bring the baked portions of the grain offering near, a sweet fragrance to יהוה.

22 "And the anointed kohen from among his sons, who is in his place, prepares it - a Law forever to יהוה. All of it has to be burned,

23 and every grain offering for the kohen is completely burned, it is not eaten."

24 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

25 "Speak to Aharon and to his sons, saying, ‘This is the Torah of the sin offering: In the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered, the sin offering is slaughtered before יהוה, it is most qodesh.

26 ‘The kohen who is making atonement eats it, in the qodesh place it is eaten, in the courtyard of the Tent of Appointment.

27 ‘All that touches its flesh is to be qodesh. And when its blood is sprinkled on any garment, you wash that on which it was sprinkled, in a qodesh place.

28 ‘But the earthen vessel in which it is cooked is to be broken. And if it is cooked in a bronze pot, then it is scoured and rinsed in water.

29 ‘Every male among the kohenim eats it, it is most qodesh.

30  ‘And no sin offering from which any of the blood is brought into the Tent of Appointment, to make atonement in the qodesh place, is eaten, it is burned with fire.

Leviticus 7

1 ‘And this is the Torah of the guilt offering - it is most qodesh.

2 ‘The guilt offering is slaughtered in the place where they slaughter the burnt offering, and its blood is sprinkled on the altar all around.

3 ‘Then he brings from it all its fat: the fat tail and the fat that covers 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 kohen shall burn them on the altar as an offering made by fire to יהוה. It is a guilt offering.

6 ‘Every male among the kohenim eats it. It is eaten in the qodesh place, it is most qodesh.

7 ‘The guilt offering is like the sin offering, there is one Torah for them both: the kohen who makes atonement with it, it is his.

8  ‘And the kohen who brings anyone's burnt offering, the skin of the burnt offering which he has brought is the kohen's, it is his.

9  ‘And every grain offering that is baked in the oven and all that is prepared in the stewing-pot, or on a griddle, is the kohen's who brings it, it is his.

10 ‘And every grain offering mixed with oil, or dry, is for all the sons of Aharon, for all alike.

11 ‘And this is the Torah of the slaughtering of peace offerings which is brought to יהוה:

12  ‘If he brings it for a thanksgiving, then he shall bring with the slaughtering of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened thin cakes anointed with oil, or cakes of finely blended flour mixed with oil.

13 ‘Besides the cakes, he brings as his offering leavened bread together with the slaughtering of thanksgiving of his peace offering.

14 ‘And from it he shall bring one cake from each offering as a contribution to יהוה: to the kohen who sprinkles the blood of the peace offering, it is his.

15  ‘As for the flesh of the slaughtering of his peace offering for thanksgiving, it is eaten the same day it is offered, he does not leave any of it until morning.

16  ‘And if the offering he brings is a vow or a voluntary offering, it is eaten the same day that he brings his slaughtering, and what is left of it is eaten the next day,

17 but whatever is left of the flesh of the slaughtering on the third day is burned with fire.

18  ‘However, if any of the flesh of his peace offering is eaten at all on the third day, it is not accepted. It is not reckoned to him who brings it, it is unclean to him, and the being who eats of it bears his wickedness.

19 ‘And the flesh that touches that which is unclean is not eaten, it is burned with fire. And as for the clean flesh, all who are clean eat of it.

20  ‘But the being who eats the flesh of the peace offering that belongs to יהוה, while he is unclean, that being shall be cut off from his people.

21  ‘And when a being who touches that which is unclean, of the uncleanness of man, or of the uncleanness of beast, or of any unclean swarming creature, and shall eat the flesh of the peace offering that belongs to יהוה, that being shall be cut off from his people.' "

22 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

23 "Speak to the children of Yisra'ĕl, saying, ‘Do not eat any fat, of bull or sheep or goat.

24 ‘And the fat of a dead body, and the fat of what is torn, is used for any purpose, but you do not eat it at all.

25  ‘For whoever eats the fat of the beast of which men bring as an offering made by fire to יהוה, even the being who eats it shall be cut off from his people.

26 ‘And do not eat any blood in any of your dwellings, of bird or of beast.

27 ‘Any being who eats any blood, even that being shall be cut off from his people.' "

28 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

29 "Speak to the children of Yisra'ĕl, saying, ‘He who brings his peace offering to יהוה brings his offering to יהוה from the slaughtering of his peace offering.

30 ‘With his own hands he bring the offerings made by fire to יהוה. He brings the fat with the breast, to be waved as a wave offering before יהוה.

31 ‘And the kohen shall burn the fat on the altar, but the breast shall be Aharon's and his sons.'

32 ‘And the right thigh you give to the kohen as a contribution from your peace offerings.

33 ‘He among the sons of Aharon, who brings the blood of the peace offering, and the fat, the right thigh is his for a portion.

34 ‘For the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the contribution I have taken from the children of Yisra'ĕl, from their peace offerings, and I give them to Aharon the kohen and to his sons, as a Law forever, from the children of Yisra'ĕl.' "

35 This is the anointed portion for Aharon and the anointed portion for his sons, from the offerings made by fire to יהוה, on the day when Mosheh presented them to serve as kohenim to יהוה,

36 which יהוה Commanded to be given to them by the children of Yisra'ĕl, on the day that He anointed them, a Law forever throughout their generations.

37 This is the Torah of the burnt offering, of the grain offering, and of the sin offering, and of the guilt offering, and of the ordinations, and of the peace offering,

38 which יהוה Commanded Mosheh on Mount Sinai, on the day when He Commanded the children of Yisra'ĕl to bring their offerings to יהוה, in the Wilderness of Sinai.

Leviticus 8

1 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,

2  "Take Aharon and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and the bull of the sin offering, and the two rams, and the basket of unleavened bread,

3 and assemble all the congregation at the door of the Tent of Appointment."

4 And Mosheh did as יהוה Commanded him, and the congregation was assembled at the door of the Tent of Appointment.

5 And Mosheh said to the congregation, "This is the word יהוה Commanded to be done."

6 So Mosheh brought Aharon and his sons and washed them with water,

7  and put the long shirt on him, and girded him with the girdle, and dressed him in the robe, and put the shoulder garment on him, and girded him with the embroidered band of the shoulder garment, and with it tied the shoulder garment on him,

8 and put the breastplate on him, and put the Urim and the Tummim in the breastplate,

9 and put the turban on his head. And on the turban, on its front, he put the golden plate, the qodesh sign of dedication, as יהוה had Commanded Mosheh.

10 And Mosheh took the anointing oil and anointed the Mishkan and all that was in it, and qodesh them.

11 And he sprinkled some of it on the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all its utensils, and the basin and its base, to qadosh them.

12 And he poured some of the anointing oil on Aharon's head and anointed him, to qadosh him.

13 And Mosheh brought the sons of Aharon and put long shirts on them, and girded them with girdles, and put turbans on them, as יהוה had Commanded Mosheh.

14 And he brought the bull for the sin offering, and Aharon and his sons laid their hands on the head of the bull for the sin offering,

15 and it was slaughtered. And Mosheh took the blood, and put some on the horns of the altar all around with his finger, and cleansed the altar. And he poured the blood at the base of the altar, and set it apart, to make atonement for it.

16 And he took all the fat that was on the entrails, and the appendage on the liver, and the two kidneys with their fat, and Mosheh burned them on the altar.

17 And the bull, and its skin, and its flesh, and its dung, he burned with fire outside the camp, as יהוה had Commanded Mosheh.

18 And he brought the ram of the burnt offering, and Aharon and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram,

19 and it was slaughtered. And Mosheh sprinkled the blood on the altar all around,

20 and he cut the ram into pieces. And Mosheh burned the head, and the pieces, and the fat,

21 and he washed the entrails and the legs in water. And Mosheh burned the entire ram on the altar. It was a burnt offering for a sweet fragrance, and an offering made by fire to יהוה, as יהוה had Commanded Mosheh.

22 And he brought the second ram, the ram of ordination, and Aharon and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram,

23 and it was slaughtered. And Mosheh took some of its blood and put it on the tip of Aharon's right ear, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot.

24 And he brought near the sons of Aharon, and Mosheh put some of the blood on the tips of their right ears, and on the thumbs of their right hands, and on the big toes of their right feet. And Mosheh sprinkled the blood on the altar all around,

25 and took the fat and the fat tail, and all the fat that was on the entrails, and the appendage on the liver, and the two kidneys and their fat, and the right thigh,

26  and from the basket of unleavened bread that was before יהוה he took one unleavened cake, and a cake of bread anointed with oil, and one thin cake, and put them on the fat and on the right thigh,

27  and placed all these in the hands of Aharon and in the hands of his sons, and waved them as a wave offering before יהוה.

28  Mosheh then took them from their hands and burned them on the altar, on the burnt offering. They were ordinations for a sweet fragrance. It was an offering by fire to יהוה.

29  And Mosheh took the breast and waved it, a wave offering before יהוה. It was Mosheh's portion of the ram of ordination, as יהוה had Commanded Mosheh.

30  And Mosheh took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood which was on the altar, and sprinkled it on Aharon, on his garments, and on his sons, and on the garments of his sons with him. And he qadosh Aharon, his garments, and his sons, and the garments of his sons with him.

31 And Mosheh said to Aharon and his sons, "Cook the flesh at the door of the Tent of Appointment, and eat it there with the bread that is in the basket of the ordinations, as I have Commanded, saying, ‘Aharon and his sons are to eat it.'

32 "Then burn the rest of the flesh and the bread with fire.

33  "And do not go outside the door of the Tent of Appointment for seven days, until the days of your ordination are completed - for he fills your hands for seven days.

34 "יהוה has Commanded to do, as he has done this day, to make atonement for you.

35 "And stay at the door of the Tent of Appointment day and night for seven days. And you shall guard the duty of יהוה, and not die, for so I have been Commanded."

36 And Aharon and his sons did all the words that יהוה had Commanded by the hand of Mosheh.
