Levítico 1

1 And the LORD called unto Moses, and spoke unto him out of the tabernacle of the testimony, saying,

2 Speak unto the sons of Israel and say unto them, When any of you offers an offering unto the LORD of animals, of cattle, [even] of the cows, or of the sheep ye shall make your offering.

3 If his offering is a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish; he shall offer it of his own free will at the door of the tabernacle of the testimony before the LORD.

4 And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering, and he shall accept it to reconcile him.

5 Then he shall kill the bullock before the LORD; and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall offer the blood and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar that is [by] the door of the tabernacle of the testimony.

6 And he shall flay the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces.

7 And the sons of Aaron, the priest, shall put fire upon the altar and lay the wood in order upon the fire.

8 Then the priests, Aaron's sons, shall lay the parts, the head and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which [shall be] upon the altar;

9 but he shall wash its intestines and its legs in water, and the priest shall incense it all on the altar, [to be] a burnt sacrifice, an offering on fire, of a very acceptable aroma unto the LORD.

10 And if his offering is of the sheep, [namely] of the lambs or of the goats, for a burnt sacrifice, he shall offer a male without blemish.

11 And he must kill it on the side of the altar, to the Aquilon before the LORD; and the priests, Aaron's sons, shall sprinkle its blood round about upon the altar.

12 And he shall cut it into its pieces, with its head and its fat; and the priest shall lay them in order on the wood that is on the fire which [shall be] upon the altar;

13 and he shall wash the inwards and the legs with water; and the priest shall offer [it] all and incense [it] upon the altar; it [is] a burnt sacrifice, an offering on fire, of a very acceptable aroma unto the LORD.

14 And if the burnt sacrifice for his offering to the LORD [is to be] of fowls, then he shall bring his offering of turtledoves or of young pigeons.

15 And the priest shall offer it upon the altar and wring off its head and incense [it] on the altar; and its blood shall be wrung out upon the side of the altar:

16 And he shall pluck away its crop and its feathers and cast them beside the altar on the east part, by the place of the ashes [with the burnt] fat.

17 And he shall cleave it by its wings [but] shall not divide [it] in two; and the priest shall incense it upon the altar, upon the wood that [is] upon the fire; it [is] a burnt sacrifice, an offering on fire of a very acceptable aroma unto the LORD.:
