Chapter 28

1 And HaShem spoke unto Moses, saying:
2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them: My food which is presented unto Me for offerings made by fire, of a sweet savour unto Me, shall ye observe to offer unto Me in its due season.
3 And thou shalt say unto them: This is the offering made by fire which ye shall bring unto HaShem: he-lambs of the first year without blemish, two day by day, for a continual burnt-offering.
4 The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other lamb shalt thou offer at dusk;
5 and the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with the fourth part of a hin of beaten oil.
6 It is a continual burnt-offering, which was offered in mount Sinai, for a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto HaShem.
7 And the drink-offering thereof shall be the fourth part of a hin for the one lamb; in the holy place shalt thou pour out a drink-offering of strong drink unto HaShem.
8 And the other lamb shalt thou present at dusk; as the meal-offering of the morning, and as the drink-offering thereof, thou shalt present it, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto HaShem.
9 And on the sabbath day two he-lambs of the first year without blemish, and two tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with oil, and the drink-offering thereof.
10 This is the burnt-offering of every sabbath, beside the continual burnt-offering, and the drink-offering thereof.
11 And in your new moons ye shall present a burnt-offering unto HaShem: two young bullocks, and one ram, seven he-lambs of the first year without blemish;
12 and three tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with oil, for each bullock; and two tenth parts of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with oil, for the one ram;
13 and a several tenth part of fine flour mingled with oil for a meal-offering unto every lamb; for a burnt-offering of a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto HaShem.
14 And their drink-offerings shall be half a hin of wine for a bullock, and the third part of a hin for the ram, and the fourth part of a hin for a lamb. This is the burnt-offering of every new moon throughout the months of the year.
15 And one he-goat for a sin-offering unto HaShem; it shall be offered beside the continual burnt-offering, and the drink-offering thereof.
16 And in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, is HaShem'S passover.
17 And on the fifteenth day of this month shall be a feast; seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten.
18 In the first day shall be a holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work;
19 but ye shall present an offering made by fire, a burnt-offering unto HaShem: two young bullocks, and one ram, and seven he-lambs of the first year; they shall be unto you without blemish;
20 and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil; three tenth parts shall ye offer for a bullock, and two tenth parts for the ram;
21 a several tenth part shalt thou offer for every lamb of the seven lambs;
22 and one he-goat for a sin-offering, to make atonement for you.
23 Ye shall offer these beside the burnt-offering of the morning, which is for a continual burnt-offering.
24 After this manner ye shall offer daily, for seven days, the food of the offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto HaShem; it shall be offered beside the continual burnt-offering, and the drink-offering thereof.
25 And on the seventh day ye shall have a holy convocation; ye shall do no manner of servile work.
26 Also in the day of the first-fruits, when ye bring a new meal-offering unto HaShem in your feast of weeks, ye shall have a holy convocation: ye shall do no manner of servile work;
27 but ye shall present a burnt-offering for a sweet savour unto HaShem: two young bullocks, one ram, seven he-lambs of the first year;
28 and their meal-offering, fine flour mingled with oil, three tenth parts for each bullock, two tenth parts for the one ram,
29 a several tenth part for every lamb of the seven lambs;
30 one he-goat, to make atonement for you.
31 Beside the continual burnt-offering, and the meal-offering thereof, ye shall offer them--they shall be unto you without blemish--and their drink-offerings.
