Numbers 28:1-31

28  And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying 2*  “Give the sons of Israel the commands ‘My oblation of food for my fire-offerings as a genial odor you shall take care to present to me at the proper time.’ 3  And you shall say to them ‘This is the fire-offering you are to present to Jehovah: two faultless yearling sheep a day as regular burnt-offering. 4  The first sheep you are to do in the morning, and the second sheep you are to do in the evening hours, 5  and a tenth of a bushel of farina for grain-offering, stirred up with three pints of beaten oil: 6  the regular burnt-offering that was done at Mount Sinai, for a genial odor, a fire-offering to Jehovah; 7  and its libation, three pints of wine to one sheep, pour out in the holy place as a liquor-libation to Jehovah. 8  And the second sheep you shall do in the evening hours, do the same grain-offering and libation as in the morning: a fire-offering, a genial odor to Jehovah. 9  “‘And on the sabbath day two faultless yearling sheep and two tenths of farina as grain-offering, stirred up with oil, and its libation, 10  as burnt-offering sabbath by sabbath, besides the regular burnt-offering and its libation. 11  “‘And at your first-of-the-month celebrations you shall present a burnt-offering to Jehovah, two steers, one ram, seven faultless yearling sheep, 12  and three tenths of farina as grain-offering, stirred with oil, for one steer, and two tenths of farina as grain-offering, stirred up with oil, for one ram, 13  and a tenth each of farina as grain-offering, stirred up with oil, for one sheep, as a burnt-offering, a genial odor, a fire-offering to Jehovah; 14  and their libations, three quarts of wine for a steer and two quarts for a ram and three pints for a sheep; this is the burnt-offering month by month for the months of the year; 15  and one old goat for a sin-offering to Jehovah. Besides the regular burnt-offering it shall be done, and its libation. 16  “‘And in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, is a passover for Jehovah; 17  and on the fifteenth day of this month is a feast: matzoth shall be eaten seven days. 18  On the first day is a sacred meeting: you are not to do any business work; 19  and you shall present a fire-offering, a burnt-offering to Jehovah, two steers and one ram and seven yearling sheep, have them faultless, 20  and their grain-offering of farina stirred up with oil: you shall do three tenths for a steer and two tenths for a ram, 21  and a tenth you shall do for each of the seven sheep; 22  and one sin-goat to purge you. 23  Aside from the morning burnt-offering for the regular burnt-offering you shall do these. 24  The same you shall do each day for seven days as fire-offering food, a genial odor to Jehovah; besides the regular burnt-offering it shall be done, and its libations. 25  And on the seventh day you shall have a sacred meeting: you are not to do any business work. 26  “‘And on the day of firstfruits, when you present a new grain-offering to Jehovah by your weeks, you shall have a sacred meeting: you are not to do any business work; 27*  and you shall present a burnt-offering for a genial odor to Jehovah. Two steers, one ram, seven yearling sheep, 28  and their grain-offering of farina stirred up with oil, three tenths for one steer, two tenths for the one ram, 29  a tenth for each of the seven sheep, 30  one old goat to purge you, 31*  aside from the regular burnt-offering and its grain-offering; you shall do; have them faultless; and their libations.
