Leviticus 6

1The Lord said to Moses, 2“A person might do wrong against the Lord by doing one of these sins: A person might lie about ˻what happened˼ to something he was taking care of for someone else. Or a person might lie about a deposit he received. Or a person might steal something. Or a person might cheat someone. 3Or a person might find something that was lost and then lie about it. Or a person might promise to do something and then not do what he promised. Or a person might do some other bad thing. 4If a person does any of those things, then that person is guilty of sin. That person must bring back whatever he stole, or whatever he took by cheating, or whatever he took that ˻the other person asked him to hold for him˼, or whatever he found and lied about, or 5whatever he made a false promise about. He must pay the full price. And then he must pay an extra fifth of ˻the value of˼ the thing. He must give the money to the true owner. He must do this on the day he ˻brings˼ his guilt offering. 6“That person must bring a guilt offering to the priest. It must be a ram from the flock. The ram must not have anything wrong with it. It must be worth the amount that the priest says. It will be a guilt offering to the Lord. 7Then the priest will go to the Lord and ˻do the things that will˼ make that person pure. And God will forgive that person for all the things that made him guilty.” 8The Lord said to Moses, 9“Give this command to Aaron and his sons: This is the law of the burnt offering. The burnt offering must ˻stay˼ on the hearth of the altar all night until morning. The altar’s fire must be kept burning on the altar. 10The priest must put on his linen robe. He must put on his linen underwear next to his body. Then the priest must pick up the ashes left by the fire when it burned the burnt offering on the altar. The priest must put these ashes beside the altar. 11Then the priest must take off his clothes and put on other clothes. Then he must carry the ashes outside the camp to a special place. 12But the altar’s fire must be kept burning on the altar. It must not ˻be allowed to˼ stop burning. The priest must burn wood on the altar every morning. He must put the wood on the altar. He must burn the fat of the fellowship offerings. 13Fire must be kept burning on the altar without stopping. It must not go out. 14“This is the law of the grain offering: The sons of Aaron must bring it to the Lord in front of the altar. 15The priest must take a handful of the fine flour from the grain offering. The oil and the frankincense must be on the grain offering. The priest must burn the grain offering on the altar. It will be a memorial ˻offering˼ to the Lord. Its smell will please the Lord. 16“Aaron and his sons must eat the grain offering that is left. The grain offering is a kind of bread made without yeast. The priests must eat this bread in a holy place. They must eat it in the courtyard around the Meeting Tent. 17The grain offering must not be cooked with yeast. I have given it as the priests’ share of the offerings made to me by fire. It is most holy, like the sin offering and the guilt offering. 18Every male among the children of Aaron may eat from the offerings made to the Lord by fire. This is a rule forever through your generations. Touching these offerings makes those men holy.” 19The Lord said to Moses, 20“This is the offering that Aaron and his sons must bring to the Lord. They must do this on the day they anoint Aaron ˻to be high priest˼. They must bring 8 cups of fine flour for a grain offering. (This will be offered at the times of the daily offering.) They must bring half of it in the morning and half of it in the evening. 21The fine flour must be mixed with oil and made on a baking pan. When it is cooked, then you must bring it in. You must break the offering into pieces. Its smell will please the Lord. 22“The priest from among Aaron’s descendants that is chosen to take Aaron’s place must make this grain offering to the Lord. This rule will continue forever. The grain offering must be completely burned for the Lord. 23Every grain offering of the priest must be completely burned. It must not be eaten.” 24The Lord said to Moses, 25“Tell Aaron and his sons: This is the law of the sin offering. The sin offering must be killed in the place where the burnt offering is killed before the Lord. It is most holy. 26The priest that offers the sin offering must eat it. But he must eat it in a holy place, in the courtyard around the Meeting Tent. 27Touching the meat ˻of the sin offering˼ makes a person or a thing holy. “If any of the sprinkled blood falls on a person’s clothes, then you must wash the clothes in a holy place. 28If the sin offering was boiled in a clay pot, then the pot must be broken. If the sin offering was boiled in a bronze pot, then the pot must be washed and rinsed in water. 29“Any man in a priest’s family may eat the sin offering. It is very holy. 30But if the blood of the sin offering was taken into the Meeting Tent and used in the Holy Place to make ˻people˼ pure, then that sin offering must not be eaten. It must be burned in the fire.
