Leviticus 8:14-36

Then he brought forth the bull of the sin offering, and Aaron and his sons placed their hands on the head of the bull of the sin offering, and he slaughtered [it], and Moses took the blood and put [it] with his finger on the altar's horns all around and purified the altar; then he poured the blood out on the altar's base--thus he consecrated it [in order] to make atonement for it. Then he took all the fat that [was] on the inner parts and the lobe on the liver and the two kidneys and their fat, and Moses turned [them] into smoke on the altar, read more.
but he burned the bull and its skin and its meat and its offal in the fire {outside the camp}, [just] as Yahweh had commanded Moses. Then he brought the ram of the burnt offering near, and Aaron and his sons placed their hands on the ram's head, and he slaughtered [it]. Then Moses sprinkled the blood on the altar all around. Then he cut the ram into pieces, and Moses turned into smoke the head and the pieces and the suet, but he washed the inner parts and the lower leg bones with water, and Moses turned into smoke all of the ram on the altar; it [was] a burnt offering as an appeasing fragrance, an offering made by fire for Yahweh, [just] as Yahweh had commanded Moses. Then he brought the second ram near, the ram of the consecration, and Aaron and his sons placed their hands on the ram's head, and he slaughtered [it]. Then Moses took {some of} its blood and put [it] on Aaron's right ear lobe and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe. Then he brought Aaron's sons near, and Moses put {some of} the blood on their right ear lobe and on their right hand's thumb and on their right foot's big toe, and Moses sprinkled the blood on the altar all around. Then he took the fat and the fat tail and all of the fat that [was] on the inner parts and the lobe of the liver and the two kidneys and their fat and the right upper thigh; and from the basket of the unleavened bread that [was] before Yahweh he took one ring-shaped unleavened bread and one ring-shaped bread with oil and one wafer, and he placed [them] on the {fat parts} and on the right upper thigh. Then he put {all of these} on Aaron's palms and on his sons' palms, and he waved them [as] a wave offering {before} Yahweh. Then Moses took them from upon their palms, and he turned [them] into smoke upon the burnt offering on the altar; they [were] a consecration offering as an appeasing fragrance--it [was] an offering made by fire for Yahweh. Then Moses took the breast section, and he waved it [as] a wave offering {before} Yahweh from the ram of the consecration offering; it [was] Moses' share, [just] as Yahweh had commanded Moses. Then Moses took {some of} the anointing oil and {some of} the blood that [was] on the altar, and he spattered [them] on Aaron, on his garments, and on Aaron's sons and on his sons' garments with him--thus he consecrated Aaron, his garments, and his sons and his sons' garments with him. Then Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, "Boil the meat in [the] entrance to [the] tent of assembly, and there you must eat it and the bread that [is] in the basket of the consecration offering, [just] as I have commanded, saying, 'Aaron and his sons must eat it,' but the remainder of the meat and the bread you must burn in the fire. And you must not go out from the entrance to [the] tent of assembly [for] seven days, until [the] day of fulfilling the days of your consecration, because {it will take seven days to ordain you}. [Just] as was done on this day, Yahweh commanded to be done [in order] to make atonement for you. And you must stay [at the] entrance to [the] tent of assembly day and night [for] seven days, and you shall keep the obligation from Yahweh, so you might not die, for thus I have been commanded." So Aaron and his sons did all the things that Yahweh had commanded {through} Moses.

Then Aaron's sons presented the blood to him, and he dipped his finger in the blood, and he put [it] on the altar's horns, and he poured out the blood on the altar's base. And the fat and the kidneys and the lobe {from the sin offering's liver} he turned into smoke on the altar, [just] as Yahweh had commanded Moses, read more.
but the meat and the skin he burned {with fire} {outside the camp}. Then he slaughtered the burnt offering, and Aaron's sons brought the blood to him, and he sprinkled it on the altar all around; and they brought the burnt offering to him by its pieces, as well as the head, and he turned [them] into smoke on the altar; and he washed the inner parts and the lower leg bones, then he turned [them] into smoke upon the burnt offering on the altar. Then he presented the people's offering, and he took the goat of the sin offering, which [was] for the people, and he slaughtered it and offered it [as] a sin offering like the first one. Then he presented the burnt offering, and he {sacrificed} it according to the regulation. Then he presented the grain offering, and he filled his palm {with some of} it, and he turned it into smoke on the altar besides the morning's burnt offering. Then he slaughtered the ox and the ram, the fellowship offerings that [are] for the people, and Aaron's sons brought the blood to him, and he sprinkled it on the altar all around. And [as for] the fat portions from the ox and from the ram (the fat tail and the layer of fat and the kidneys and the lobe of the liver), they placed the fat portions on the breast sections, and he turned the fat portions into smoke on the altar. Then Aaron waved the breast sections and the right upper thigh [as] a wave offering {before} Yahweh, [just] as Moses had commanded. Then Aaron lifted his hand toward the people, and he blessed them, and he came down {after} {sacrificing} the sin offering and the burnt offering and the fellowship offerings. Then Moses and Aaron entered [the] tent of assembly. When they came out, they blessed the people, and Yahweh's glory appeared to all the people. Then a fire went out {from before} Yahweh, and it consumed the burnt offering and the fat portions on the altar. And all the people saw [it], so they shouted [for joy], and they fell on their faces.

You must not {continue} to bring offerings of futility, incense--it [is] an abomination to me; new moon and Sabbath, [the] calling of a convocation-- I cannot endure iniquity with [solemn] assembly.

Matthew 9:12-13

And [when he] heard [it], he said, "Those who are healthy do not have need of a physician, but those {who are sick}. But go [and] learn what it means, "I want mercy and not sacrifice." For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

Psalm 40:5-6

Many things, O Yahweh my God, you have done-- your wonderful deeds and your thoughts toward us. There is none to compare with you.

Burnt offering and sin offering you have not demanded.

Hebrews 10:1-9

For the law, possessing a shadow of the good [things] that are about to come, not the form of things itself, [is] never able {year by year} by means of the same sacrifices which they offer without interruption to make perfect those who draw near. For otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the ones who worship, having been purified once and for all, would no longer have any consciousness of sins? But in them [there is] a reminder of sins {year by year}. read more.
For [it is] impossible [for] the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. Therefore, [when he] came into the world, he said, "Sacrifice and offering you did not want, but a body you prepared for me; you did not delight in whole burnt offerings and [offerings] for sins. Then I said, 'Behold, I have come-- in the roll of the book it is written about me-- to do your will, O God.' [When he] says above, "Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and [offerings] for sin you did not want, nor did you delight in," which are offered according to the law, then he has said, "Behold, I have come to do your will."

And he himself burned incense in the valley of Ben-Hinnom and burned his sons in the fire, according to the detestable [practices] of the nations whom Yahweh drove out before the Israelites.

Isaiah 57:3-13

"But you, come near here, you children of a soothsayer, offspring [of] an adulterer and she [who] commits fornication. At whom do you make fun? At whom do you {open} [your] mouth [and] {stick out} [your] tongue? [Are] you not children of transgression, offspring of deception, who burn with lust among the oaks, under every leafy tree, who slaughter children in the valleys, under the clefts of the rocks? read more.
Your portion [is] among [the] smooth [stones] of [the] valley; they, they [are] your lot; indeed, to them you have poured out a drink offering, you have brought a food offering. Shall I relent concerning these [things]? You have set your bed upon a high and lofty mountain; indeed, you went up there to slaughter sacrifice. And you have set your symbol behind the door and the doorpost; for you depart from me, and you go up; you make your bed wide, and you {make a deal with} them, you have loved their bed; you have seen [their] {genitals}. And you climbed down to the king with oil, and you made your perfumes numerous, and you sent your envoys {far away}, and you {sent down deep} to Sheol. You grow weary by the greatness of your way, [but] you did not say, 'Despairing!' You found the {renewal} of your {strength}, therefore you do not grow weak. And of whom were you afraid and feared, that you deceived and did not remember me? Did you not place [it] on your heart? [Have] I not been silent, even from long ago, and [so] you do not fear me? I myself will declare your righteousness and your works, but they will not benefit you. When {you cry}, let your collection deliver you, and [the] wind will carry all of them away; a breath will take [them] away. But he who takes refuge in me shall take possession [of] [the] land, and he shall inherit my {holy mountain}."

Sacrifice » Sacrificing yourself for the lord

Romans 12:1-2

Therefore I exhort you, brothers, through the mercies of God, to present your bodies [as] a living sacrifice, holy [and] pleasing to God, [which is] your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, so that you may approve what [is] the good and well-pleasing and perfect will of God.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15

For the love of Christ controls us, [because we] have concluded this: that one died for all; as a result all died. And he died for all, in order that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the one who died for them and was raised.

Sacrifice » Meat » Idols

Romans 14:14-23

I know and am convinced in the Lord Jesus that nothing [is] unclean of itself, except to the one who considers something to be unclean; to that person [it is] unclean. For if because of food, your brother is grieved, you are no longer living according to love. Do not destroy by your food that person for whom Christ died. Therefore do not let your good be slandered. read more.
For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. For the one who serves Christ in this [way] [is] well-pleasing to God and approved by people. So then, let us pursue {what promotes peace} and {what edifies one another}. Do not destroy the work of God on account of food. All [things] [are] clean, but [it is] wrong for the person {who eats and stumbles in the process}. [It is] good not to eat meat or to drink wine or [to do anything] by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is weakened. The faith that you have, have with respect to yourself before God. Blessed [is] the one who does not pass judgment on himself by what he approves. But the one who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not [do so] from faith, and everything that [is] not from faith is sin.

1 Corinthians 8:1-13

Now concerning food sacrificed to idols, we know that "we all have knowledge." Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. If anyone thinks he knows anything, he has not yet known as it is necessary to know. But if anyone loves God, this one is known by him. read more.
Therefore, concerning the eating of food sacrificed to idols, we know that "an idol [is] nothing in the world" and that "[there is] no God except one." For even if after all [there] are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth, just as [there] are many gods and many lords, yet to us [there is] one God, the Father, from whom [are] all [things], and we [are] for him, and [there is] one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom [are] all [things], and we [are] through him. But this knowledge [is] not in everyone. But some, being accustomed until now to the idol, eat [this food] as food sacrificed to idols, and their conscience, [because it] is weak, is defiled. But food does not bring us close to God. For neither if we eat do we have more, nor if we do not eat do we lack. But watch out lest somehow this right of yours becomes a cause for stumbling to the weak. For if someone should see you who has knowledge reclining for a meal in an idol's temple, will not his conscience, [because it] is weak, be strengthened so that [he] eats the food sacrificed to idols? For the one who is weak--the brother for whom Christ died--is destroyed by your knowledge. Now [if you] sin in this way against the brothers and wound their conscience, which is weak, you sin against Christ. Therefore, if food causes my brother to sin, I will never eat meat {forever}, in order that I may not cause my brother to sin.

1 Corinthians 10:14-33

Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. I am speaking as to sensible [people]; you judge what I am saying. The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? read more.
Because [there is] one bread, [we] who [are] many are one body, for [we] all share from the one bread. Consider Israel according to the flesh: are not the ones who eat the sacrifices sharers in the altar? Therefore, what am I saying? That food sacrificed to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? [No], but that [the things] which they sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to become sharers with demons. You are not able to drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You are not able to share the table of the Lord and the table of demons. Or are we attempting to provoke the Lord to jealousy? We are not stronger than he [is, are we]? All [things] are permitted, but not all [things] are profitable. All [things] are permitted, but not all [things] build up. Let no one seek {his own good} but the [good] of the other. Eat everything that is sold in the meat market, {asking no questions} for the sake of the conscience, for "the earth [is] the Lord's, and its fullness." If any of the unbelievers invites you, and you want to go, eat everything that is set before you, {asking no questions} for the sake of the conscience. But if someone says to you, "This is offered to idols," do not eat [it], for the sake of that one who informed [you] and the conscience. Now I am not speaking about your own conscience, but the [conscience] of the other [person]. For why [is] my freedom judged by another's conscience? If I partake with thankfulness, why am I slandered concerning that for which I give thanks? Therefore, whether you eat or you drink or whatever you do, do all [things] for the glory of God. {Give no offense} both to Jews and to Greeks and to the church of God, just as I also please all [people] in all [things], not seeking my own benefit, but the [benefit] of the many, in order that they may be saved.

Sacrifice » Whose sacrifice shall be accepted by the lord

Isaiah 56:6-7

And the {foreigners} [who] join themselves to Yahweh to serve him and to love the name of Yahweh, to become his servants, every one who keeps [the] Sabbath, {so as not to profane} it, and those who keep hold of my covenant, I will bring them to {my holy mountain}; I will make them merry in my house of prayer. their burnt offerings and their sacrifices {will be accepted} on my altar, for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples,"

Hebrews 13:12-16

Therefore Jesus also suffered outside the gate, in order that he might sanctify the people by his own blood. So we must go out to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For here we do not have a permanent city, but we seek the [city] that is to come. read more.
Therefore through him let us offer up a sacrifice of praise {continually} to God, that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name. And do not neglect doing good and generosity, for God is pleased with such sacrifices.

Genesis 4:3-7

And {in the course of time} Cain brought an offering from the fruit of the ground to Yahweh, and Abel also brought [an offering] from {the choicest firstlings of his flock}. And Yahweh looked with favor to Abel and to his offering, but to Cain and to his offering he did not look with favor. And Cain became very angry, and his face fell. read more.
And Yahweh said to Cain, "Why are you angry, and why is your face fallen? If you do well {will I not accept you}? But if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. And its desire [is] for you, but you must rule over it."

Sacrifice » The reward for sacrificing your children

Psalm 106:37-43

They even sacrificed their sons and daughters to the demons, and they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and [so] the land was defiled with the blood. And they became unclean by their works, and were unfaithful in their deeds. read more.
So Yahweh's anger burned against his people, and he abhorred his inheritance. Then he gave them into [the] hand of [the] nations, and those who hated them ruled over them. And their enemies oppressed them, and they were subdued under their hand. Many times he delivered them, but they rebelled in their counsel, and were brought low by their iniquity.

Jeremiah 19:3-15

And you shall say, 'Hear the word of Yahweh, O kings of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem. Thus says Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel: "Look, I [am] about to bring disaster upon this place so that {everyone who hears it}, his ears will ring.

"{Therefore} look, days [are] about to come," {declares} Yahweh, "when this place will no longer be called Topheth or the Valley of Ben Hinnom, {but} the Valley of the Slaughter. And I will lay waste the plans of Judah and Jerusalem in this place, and I will bring them to ruin by the sword {before} their enemies, and by the hand of those who seek their life, and I will give their dead bodies as food to the birds of heaven and to the animals of the earth. And I will make this city a horror, and [an object of] hissing, everyone [who] passes by it will be appalled, and will hiss because of all its wounds. And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons, and the flesh of their daughters, and each one will eat the flesh of his neighbor in [the] siege and in [the] distress which their enemies and those who seek their life inflict on them." ' "Then you shall break the jar before the eyes of the men who go with you. And you shall say to them, 'Thus says Yahweh of hosts: "So I will break this people and this city as one breaks the vessel of the potter, [so] that it is not able to be repaired again. And in Topheth they will bury {until there is no room to bury}. Thus will I do to this place," {declares} Yahweh, "and to its inhabitants, to make this city like Topheth. And the houses of Jerusalem and the houses of the kings of Judah will be unclean like the place of Topheth, all the houses where they made smoke offerings upon their roofs to all the host of heaven, and [where] they poured out libations to other gods." '" Then Jeremiah came from Topheth, where Yahweh had sent him to prophesy, and he stood in the courtyard of the house of Yahweh and said to all the people, "Thus says Yahweh of hosts, the God of Israel, 'Look, I [am] about to bring to this city and upon all its towns all the disaster that I have pronounced against it, because they have hardened their neck to not hear my words.'"

Jeremiah 32:35-36

And they built the high places of Baal that [are] in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to present as offerings their sons and their daughters to Molech, which I had not commanded them, and it had not come to my {mind} to do this detestable thing in order to cause Judah to sin." "So now {therefore}, thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel, concerning this city, [of] which you [are] saying, 'It will be given into the hand of the king of Babylon by the sword, and by the famine, and by the plague':

Mark 12:28-33

And one of the scribes came up [and] heard them debating. [When he] saw that he answered them well, he asked him, "Which commandment is the most important of all?" Jesus answered, "The most important is, 'Listen, Israel! The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God from your whole heart and from your whole soul and from your whole mind and from your whole strength.' read more.
The second [is] this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." And the scribe said to him, "That is true, Teacher. You have said {correctly} that he is one and there is no other except him. And to love him from your whole heart and from your whole understanding and from your whole strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices."

Thus says Yahweh: "Heaven [is] my throne, and the earth [is] the footstool for my feet. Where [is] this house that you would build for me? And where [is] this resting place for me? And my hand has made all these [things], and all these {came to be}," {declares} Yahweh, "but I look to this [one]: to [the] humble and [the] contrite of spirit and [the one] frightened at my word. The one who slaughters bull strikes a man; the one who slaughters lamb for sacrifice breaks the neck [of] a dog. The one who offers an offering, [the] blood of swine; the one who offers frankincense blesses an idol. Indeed, they themselves have chosen their ways, and their soul delights in their abhorrence. read more.
Indeed, I myself I will choose their ill treatment, and I will bring them objects of their dread, because I called, and {no one answered}; I spoke and they did not listen, but they did the evil in my eyes, and they chose that in which I do not delight."

Genesis 4:3-7

And Yahweh said to Cain, "Why are you angry, and why is your face fallen? If you do well {will I not accept you}? But if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. And its desire [is] for you, but you must rule over it."

Hosea 9:1-4

Do not rejoice, Israel, do not exult like the nations! For you played the whore, departing from your God; you loved a harlot's wage on all the threshing floors of grain. Threshing floor and wine vat will not feed them, and new wine will fail her. They will not remain in the land of Yahweh. But Ephraim will return [to] Egypt, and in Assyria they will eat unclean food. read more.
They will not pour [drink offerings of] wine to Yahweh, and their sacrifices will not please him. [They are] like mourners' bread for them; all those who eat it will be defiled. For their bread will be {for their hunger}; it will not come [to] the house of Yahweh.

Revelation 5:6-13

And I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures and in the midst of the elders a Lamb standing as though slaughtered, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent into all the earth.

And I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and of the living creatures and of the elders, and their number was ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands times thousands, saying with a loud voice, "Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!"

And you have set your symbol behind the door and the doorpost; for you depart from me, and you go up; you make your bed wide, and you {make a deal with} them, you have loved their bed; you have seen [their] {genitals}.

And of whom were you afraid and feared, that you deceived and did not remember me? Did you not place [it] on your heart? [Have] I not been silent, even from long ago, and [so] you do not fear me? I myself will declare your righteousness and your works, but they will not benefit you. When {you cry}, let your collection deliver you, and [the] wind will carry all of them away; a breath will take [them] away. But he who takes refuge in me shall take possession [of] [the] land, and he shall inherit my {holy mountain}."
