1. Yahweh called Moses, and from the Tent of Meeting addressed him, saying,

2. "Speak to the people of Israel; say to them: When anyone brings an offering of an animal to Yahweh it can be from either his cattle or sheep and goats.

3. If the offering is a burnt offering of one of his cattle, he is to offer a bull without any defect. He shall offer it at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, so that his offering may be accepted before Yahweh.

4. He is to lay his hand on the bull's head, and it shall be accepted as a sacrifice to take away his sins.

5. Then he shall kill the bull before Yahweh, and the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall offer the blood. They will pour it out on the sides of the altar which stands at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.

6. Then he shall skin the victim and quarter it.

7. The sons of Aaron, the priests, must put fire on the altar and arrange wood on this fire.

8. Then the sons of Aaron, the priests, are to put the pieces, the head and the fat on the wood on the altar fire.

9. The man shall wash the internal organs and legs in water, and the priest is to burn all of it on the altar. This will be a burnt offering and its sweet-smelling odor will please Yahweh.

10. If his offering is an animal out of the flock, a lamb or a goat offered as a burnt offering, he is to offer a male without any defect.

11. He shall kill it on the north side of the altar before Yahweh, and the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall pour out the blood on the sides of the altar.

12. Then he is to quarter it, and the priest is to arrange the quarters, as well as the head and the fat on the wood on the altar fire.

13. The man shall wash the internal organs and legs in water, and the priest shall burn all of it on the altar. This will be a burnt offering and its sweet-smelling odor will please Yahweh.

14. If the man is offering a bird as a burnt offering, he is to offer a turtledove or a young pigeon.

15. The priest shall offer it at the altar and wring off its head, which he is to burn on the altar; then its blood is to be drained out on the side of the altar.

16. Then he shall remove the crop and the feathers: these he is to throw on the eastern side of the altar, where the ashes from the fat are placed.

17. He is to divide it in two halves with a wing on each side, but without separating the two parts. Then the priest shall burn it on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire. This will be a burnt offering and its sweet-smelling odor will please Yahweh.
