Numbers 15:1-31 - Various Sacrifices And Offerings
1 Later, the LORD instructed Moses, 2 "Tell the Israelis that 3 when you enter the land where you'll be living that I'm about to give you, you are to make an offering by fire to the LORD, either a burnt offering, a sacrificial offering to fulfill a vow, or a voluntary offering at the appointed time, to make a pleasing aroma to the LORD either from your cattle or from your flocks. 4 The offeror is to bring the oblation to the LORD, containing one tenth of an ephah of fine flour as a grain offering, mixed with one fourth of a hin of olive oil. 5 Also prepare one fourth of a hin of wine for a drink offering or for the sacrifice of each lamb.
6 "For a ram, prepare a grain offering consisting of two tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one third of a hin of olive oil. 7 Now as for your drink offering, offer one third of a hin of wine as a pleasing aroma to the LORD.
8 "When you prepare a bull as a burnt offering, or as a sacrifice to fulfill a vow, or for peace offerings to the LORD, 9 then the bullock is to be presented accompanied by a meal offering of three tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with half a hin of oil. 10 "As for drink offerings, offer half a hin of wine, for an offering made by fire is a pleasing aroma to the LORD. 11 Do this for each bullock, ram, male lamb, or goat. 12 Depending on the number of offerings that you prepare, do for each one according to their number.
13 Every native born person is to do these things, bringing an offering made by fire as a pleasing aroma to the LORD." 14 "Now, if a resident alien lives with you, or whoever else is with you throughout your generations, let him make an offering made by fire, a pleasing aroma to the LORD. Just as you do, so is he to do. 15 There is to be a single standard for your community, one statute for you and the resident alien who lives with you, a long lasting statute throughout your generations. Just as you do, so is the resident alien to do in the presence of the LORD. 16 There is to be one law and one ordinance for you and for the resident alien who lives with you."
17 Then the LORD instructed Moses: 18 "Tell the Israelis that when they enter the land that I'm about to bring you to, 19 when you have eaten some of the bread that the land produces, you are to offer a raised offering to the LORD. 20 You are to offer a cake made from the first of your bread dough as a raised offering to the LORD. Offer it as a raised offering right off your threshing floor. 21 From then on, throughout your generations give the first of your bread dough to the LORD."
22 "Here's what you are to do when you all go astray and fail to observe all these commands that the LORD had spoken to Moses, 23 including anything that the LORD commanded you by the authority of Moses, starting from the day the LORD commanded Moses and continuing through your generations. 24 When anything is done without the knowledge of the congregation, the entire community is to offer one young bull for a burnt offering, a pleasing aroma to the LORD, along with its meal and drink offerings offered according to procedure, and one male goat for a sin offering. 25 Then the priest is to make atonement for the entire community of the Israelis, and they will be forgiven for inadvertent sins. They are to bring their offering, an offering made by fire to the LORD, as well as their sin offering, into the LORD's presence on account of their error. 26 Then the entire community of Israel will be forgiven, along with the resident alien who lives among them, since all the people will have sinned inadvertently."
27 "Now when one person sins inadvertently, then he is to bring a one year old female goat for a sin offering. 28 Then, in the LORD's presence, the priest is to make atonement for the person who sinned inadvertently, that is, to make atonement on his behalf so he may be forgiven. 29 You are to have a single law for the one who does things inadvertently, whether for the native-born Israeli or for the resident alien who lives among you."
30 "But if some person acts with a high hand, whether a native-born or a resident alien, he blasphemes God, and that person is to be eliminated from among his people. 31 Because he has despised the law of the LORD and has broken his commands, that person is certainly to be eliminated. His iniquity will remain on him."
