Numbers 28

1Then the Lord spoke to Moses. He said, 2“Give this command to the people of Israel. Tell them to be sure to give the grain offerings and sacrifices to me at the right time. Those are the offerings made by fire. Their smell will please the Lord. 3These are the offerings made by fire that they must give to the Lord. Every day they must give 2 lambs that are one year old. There must be nothing wrong with them. 4Offer one of the lambs in the morning, and offer the other lamb at twilight. 5Also give a grain offering of 8 cups of fine flour mixed with 1 quart of olive oil.” 6(They started giving the daily offerings at Mount Sinai. They were offerings made by fire. Their smell pleased the Lord.) 7The people must also give the drink offerings that go with the offerings made by fire. They must give 1 quart of wine with every lamb. Pour that drink offering ˻on the altar˼ in the Holy Place. This is a gift to the Lord. 8Offer the second lamb at twilight. Offer it just like the morning offering. Also give the drink offering that goes with it. This will be an offering made by fire. Its smell will please the Lord.” 9“On the Sabbath, you must give 2 lambs that are one year old. There must be nothing wrong with them. You must also give a grain offering of 16 cups of fine flour mixed with olive oil, and a drink offering. 10This is a special offering for the day of rest. This offering is in addition to the regular daily offering and drink offering.” 11“On the first day of each month you will offer a special burnt offering to the Lord. This offering will be 2 male bulls, 1 ram, and 7 lambs that are one year old. There must be nothing wrong with them. 12With each bull, you must give a grain offering of 24 cups of fine flour mixed with olive oil. And with the ram, you must give a grain offering of 16 cups of fine flour mixed with olive oil. 13Also give a grain offering of 8 cups of fine flour mixed with olive oil with each lamb. This will be an offering made by fire. Its smell will please the Lord. 14The drink offering will be 2 quarts of wine with each bull, 1,1/4 quarts of wine with the ram, and 1 quart of wine with each lamb. That is the burnt offering that must be offered each and every month of the year. 15In addition to the regular daily burnt offering and drink offering, you must also give 1 male goat to the Lord. That goat will be a sin offering. 16“The Lord’s Passover will be on the 14th day of the first month. 17The Festival of Unleavened Bread begins on the 15th day of that month. This holiday lasts for seven days. The only bread you can eat is bread made without yeast. 18You must have a special meeting on the first day of this holiday. You will not do any work on that day. 19You will give burnt offerings to the Lord. The burnt offerings will be 2 bulls, 1 ram, and 7 lambs that are one year old. There must be nothing wrong with them. 20- 21You must also give a grain offering of 24 cups of fine flour mixed with olive oil with each bull, and 16 cups of fine flour mixed with oil with the ram, and 8 cups of fine flour mixed with oil for each lamb. 22You must also give 1 male goat. That goat will be a sin offering to make you pure. 23You must give those offerings in addition to the morning burnt offerings that you give every day. 24“In the same way, each day for seven days, you must give the offerings made by fire to the Lord and the drink offerings that go with them. The smell of these offerings will please the Lord. The offerings will be food ˻for the people˼. You must give these offerings in addition to the burnt offerings that you give every day. 25“Then, on the seventh day ˻of this holiday˼, you will have another special meeting. You will not do any work on that day. 26“At the Festival of Firstfruits (the Festival of Weeks) use the new crops to give a grain offering to the Lord. At that time, you must also call a special meeting. You must not do any work on that day. 27You must offer a burnt offering. It will be an offering made by fire. Its smell will please the Lord. You must offer 2 bulls, 1 ram, and 7 lambs that are one year old. There must be nothing wrong with them. 28You must also give 24 cups of fine flour mixed with oil with each bull and 16 cups with each ram, 29and 8 cups with each lamb. 30You must also sacrifice 1 male goat to make you pure. 31You must give those offerings in addition to the daily burnt offerings and the grain offering you give with them. Be sure there is nothing wrong with the animals or the drink offerings that you give with them.
