6:1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
2 “If anyone sins and commits a breach of faith against the Lord by deceiving his neighbor in a matter of deposit or security, or through robbery, or if he has oppressed his neighbor
3 or has found something lost and lied about it, swearing falsely—in any of all the things that people do and sin thereby—
4 if he has sinned and has realized his guilt and will restore what he took by robbery or what he got by oppression or the deposit that was committed to him or the lost thing that he found
5 or anything about which he has sworn falsely, he shall restore it in full and shall add a fifth to it, and give it to him to whom it belongs on the day he realizes his guilt.
6 And he shall bring to the priest as his compensation to the Lord a ram without blemish out of the flock, or its equivalent, for a guilt offering.
7 And the priest shall make atonement for him before the Lord, and he shall be forgiven for any of the things that one may do and thereby become guilty.”
The Priests and the Offerings8 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
9 “Command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt offering. The burnt offering shall be on the hearth on the altar all night until the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be kept burning on it.
10 And the priest shall put on his linen garment and put his linen undergarment on his body, and he shall take up the ashes to which the fire has reduced the burnt offering on the altar and put them beside the altar.
11 Then he shall take off his garments and put on other garments and carry the ashes outside the camp to a clean place.
12 The fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it; it shall not go out. The priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and he shall arrange the burnt offering on it and shall burn on it the fat of the peace offerings.
13 Fire shall be kept burning on the altar continually; it shall not go out.
14 “And this is the law of the grain offering. The sons of Aaron shall offer it before the Lord in front of the altar.
15 And one shall take from it a handful of the fine flour of the grain offering and its oil and all the frankincense that is on the grain offering and burn this as its memorial portion on the altar, a pleasing aroma to the Lord.
16 And the rest of it Aaron and his sons shall eat. It shall be eaten unleavened in a holy place. In the court of the tent of meeting they shall eat it.
17 It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it as their portion of my food offerings. It is a thing most holy, like the sin offering and the guilt offering.
18 Every male among the children of Aaron may eat of it, as decreed forever throughout your generations, from the Lord’s food offerings. Whatever touches them shall become holy.”
19 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
20 “This is the offering that Aaron and his sons shall offer to the Lord on the day when he is anointed: a tenth of an ephah of fine flour as a regular grain offering, half of it in the morning and half in the evening.
21 It shall be made with oil on a griddle. You shall bring it well mixed, in baked pieces like a grain offering, and offer it for a pleasing aroma to the Lord.
22 The priest from among Aaron’s sons, who is anointed to succeed him, shall offer it to the Lord as decreed forever. The whole of it shall be burned.
23 Every grain offering of a priest shall be wholly burned. It shall not be eaten.”
24 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
25 “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin offering. In the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the sin offering be killed before the Lord; it is most holy.
26 The priest who offers it for sin shall eat it. In a holy place it shall be eaten, in the court of the tent of meeting.
27 Whatever touches its flesh shall be holy, and when any of its blood is splashed on a garment, you shall wash that on which it was splashed in a holy place.
28 And the earthenware vessel in which it is boiled shall be broken. But if it is boiled in a bronze vessel, that shall be scoured and rinsed in water.
29 Every male among the priests may eat of it; it is most holy.
30 But no sin offering shall be eaten from which any blood is brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement in the Holy Place; it shall be burned up with fire.
« Leviticus 6 | Leviticus 7 | Leviticus 8 »
7:1 “This is the law of the guilt offering. It is most holy.
2 In the place where they kill the burnt offering they shall kill the guilt offering, and its blood shall be thrown against the sides of the altar.
3 And all its fat shall be offered, the fat tail, the fat that covers the entrails,
4 the two kidneys with the fat that is on them at the loins, and the long lobe of the liver that he shall remove with the kidneys.
5 The priest shall burn them on the altar as a food offering to the Lord; it is a guilt offering.
6 Every male among the priests may eat of it. It shall be eaten in a holy place. It is most holy.
7 The guilt offering is just like the sin offering; there is one law for them. The priest who makes atonement with it shall have it.
8 And the priest who offers any man’s burnt offering shall have for himself the skin of the burnt offering that he has offered.
9 And every grain offering baked in the oven and all that is prepared on a pan or a griddle shall belong to the priest who offers it.
10 And every grain offering, mixed with oil or dry, shall be shared equally among all the sons of Aaron.
11 “And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings that one may offer to the Lord.
12 If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the thanksgiving sacrifice unleavened loaves mixed with oil, unleavened wafers smeared with oil, and loaves of fine flour well mixed with oil.
13 With the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving he shall bring his offering with loaves of leavened bread.
14 And from it he shall offer one loaf from each offering, as a gift to the Lord. It shall belong to the priest who throws the blood of the peace offerings.
15 And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten on the day of his offering. He shall not leave any of it until the morning.
16 But if the sacrifice of his offering is a vow offering or a freewill offering, it shall be eaten on the day that he offers his sacrifice, and on the next day what remains of it shall be eaten.
17 But what remains of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burned up with fire.
18 If any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering is eaten on the third day, he who offers it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be credited to him. It is tainted, and he who eats of it shall bear his iniquity.
19 “Flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten. It shall be burned up with fire. All who are clean may eat flesh,
20 but the person who eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of the Lord’s peace offerings while an uncleanness is on him, that person shall be cut off from his people.
21 And if anyone touches an unclean thing, whether human uncleanness or an unclean beast or any unclean detestable creature, and then eats some flesh from the sacrifice of the Lord’s peace offerings, that person shall be cut off from his people.”
22 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
23 “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, You shall eat no fat, of ox or sheep or goat.
24 The fat of an animal that dies of itself and the fat of one that is torn by beasts may be put to any other use, but on no account shall you eat it.
25 For every person who eats of the fat of an animal of which a food offering may be made to the Lord shall be cut off from his people.
26 Moreover, you shall eat no blood whatever, whether of fowl or of animal, in any of your dwelling places.
27 Whoever eats any blood, that person shall be cut off from his people.”
28 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
29 “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, Whoever offers the sacrifice of his peace offerings to the Lord shall bring his offering to the Lord from the sacrifice of his peace offerings.
30 His own hands shall bring the Lord’s food offerings. He shall bring the fat with the breast, that the breast may be waved as a wave offering before the Lord.
31 The priest shall burn the fat on the altar, but the breast shall be for Aaron and his sons.
32 And the right thigh you shall give to the priest as a contribution from the sacrifice of your peace offerings.
33 Whoever among the sons of Aaron offers the blood of the peace offerings and the fat shall have the right thigh for a portion.
34 For the breast that is waved and the thigh that is contributed I have taken from the people of Israel, out of the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons, as a perpetual due from the people of Israel.
35 This is the portion of Aaron and of his sons from the Lord’s food offerings, from the day they were presented to serve as priests of the Lord.
36 The Lord commanded this to be given them by the people of Israel, from the day that he anointed them. It is a perpetual due throughout their generations.”
37 This is the law of the burnt offering, of the grain offering, of the sin offering, of the guilt offering, of the ordination offering, and of the peace offering,
38 which the Lord commanded Moses on Mount Sinai, on the day that he commanded the people of Israel to bring their offerings to the Lord, in the wilderness of Sinai.
« Proverbs 15 | Proverbs 16 | Proverbs 17 »
16:1 The plans of the heart belong to man,but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes,but the Lord weighs the spirit.
3 Commit your work to the Lord,and your plans will be established.
4 The Lord has made everything for its purpose,even the wicked for the day of trouble.
5 Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord;be assured, he will not go unpunished.
6 By steadfast love and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for,and by the fear of the Lord one turns away from evil.
7 When a man’s ways please the Lord,he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
8 Better is a little with righteousnessthan great revenues with injustice.
9 The heart of man plans his way,but the Lord establishes his steps.
10 An oracle is on the lips of a king;his mouth does not sin in judgment.
11 A just balance and scales are the Lord’s;all the weights in the bag are his work.
12 It is an abomination to kings to do evil,for the throne is established by righteousness.
13 Righteous lips are the delight of a king,and he loves him who speaks what is right.
14 A king’s wrath is a messenger of death,and a wise man will appease it.
15 In the light of a king’s face there is life,and his favor is like the clouds that bring the spring rain.
16 How much better to get wisdom than gold!To get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver.
17 The highway of the upright turns aside from evil;whoever guards his way preserves his life.
18 Pride goes before destruction,and a haughty spirit before a fall.
19 It is better to be of a lowly spirit with the poorthan to divide the spoil with the proud.
20 Whoever gives thought to the word will discover good,and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.
21 The wise of heart is called discerning,and sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness.
22 Good sense is a fountain of life to him who has it,but the instruction of fools is folly.
23 The heart of the wise makes his speech judiciousand adds persuasiveness to his lips.
24 Gracious words are like a honeycomb,sweetness to the soul and health to the body.
25 There is a way that seems right to a man,but its end is the way to death.
26 A worker’s appetite works for him;his mouth urges him on.
27 A worthless man plots evil,and his speech is like a scorching fire.
28 A dishonest man spreads strife,and a whisperer separates close friends.
29 A man of violence entices his neighborand leads him in a way that is not good.
30 Whoever winks his eyes plans dishonest things;he who purses his lips brings evil to pass.
31 Gray hair is a crown of glory;it is gained in a righteous life.
32 Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
33 The lot is cast into the lap,but its every decision is from the Lord.
« Psalm 19 | Psalm 20 | Psalm 21 »
Trust in the Name of the Lord Our GodTo the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.20:1 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
2 May he send you help from the sanctuaryand give you support from Zion!
3 May he remember all your offeringsand regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
4 May he grant you your heart’s desireand fulfill all your plans!
5 May we shout for joy over your salvation,and in the name of our God set up our banners!May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!
6 Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;he will answer him from his holy heavenwith the saving might of his right hand.
7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses,but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
8 They collapse and fall,but we rise and stand upright.
9 O Lord, save the king!May he answer us when we call.
« Psalm 20 | Psalm 21 | Psalm 22 »
The King Rejoices in the Lord’s StrengthTo the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.21:1 O Lord, in your strength the king rejoices,and in your salvation how greatly he exults!
2 You have given him his heart’s desireand have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah
3 For you meet him with rich blessings;you set a crown of fine gold upon his head.
4 He asked life of you; you gave it to him,length of days forever and ever.
5 His glory is great through your salvation;splendor and majesty you bestow on him.
6 For you make him most blessed forever;you make him glad with the joy of your presence.
7 For the king trusts in the Lord,and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.
8 Your hand will find out all your enemies;your right hand will find out those who hate you.
9 You will make them as a blazing ovenwhen you appear.The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath,and fire will consume them.
10 You will destroy their descendants from the earth,and their offspring from among the children of man.
11 Though they plan evil against you,though they devise mischief, they will not succeed.
12 For you will put them to flight;you will aim at their faces with your bows.
13 Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength!We will sing and praise your power.
