3 Mosebog 1

Regler for brændofre, henvendt til folket

1Herren kaldte på Moses fra åbenbaringsteltet og sagde: „Giv Israels folk følgende instrukser: Når en af jer vil give en offergave til Herren, kan han bringe et af sine husdyr: et stykke kvæg, et får eller en ged. Hvis han bringer et stykke kvæg som brændoffer, skal det være en tyr uden skavanker. Han skal bringe dyret hen til åbenbaringsteltets indgang som en gave til Herren. Der skal han lægge sin hånd på tyrens hoved, så Herren kan modtage det som hans stedfortrædende offer og tilgive hans synd. Manden skal derefter slagte dyret i Herrens påsyn, og præsterne skal bringe blodet som et offer til Herren ved at stænke det på siderne af alteret, der står ved indgangen til teltet. Derefter skal han flå dyret og partere det. Præsterne skal starte et bål på alteret og lægge det parterede dyr inklusive dets hoved og alt fedtet oven på alterbrændet. Tyrens indvolde og skanke skal han vaske med vand, før de bliver lagt på alteret. På den måde skal præsterne brænde det hele, og det bliver et offer, som behager Herren.

10 Hvis brændofferdyret er et får eller en ged, gælder det samme: Dyret skal være et handyr uden fysiske defekter. 11 Manden, som bringer offerdyret, skal slagte dyret ved alterets nordside, og præsterne skal stænke blodet på siderne af alteret. 12 Så skal manden partere dyret, og præsterne skal lægge det parterede dyr inklusive dets hoved og alt fedtet oven på alterbrændet. 13 Men indvoldene og skankene skal han først vaske med vand. Således skal præsterne brænde det hele på alteret som et brændoffer til Herrens velbehag.

14 Hvis nogen ønsker at bringe en fugl som brændoffer, skal det være en turteldue eller en ung due. 15 Præsten skal bringe fuglen til alteret, nippe halsen over på den, lade blodet løbe ned ad alterets side og brænde fuglens hoved på alteret. 16 Derefter skal han fjerne fuglens kro og fjer og kaste dem på askedyngen ved alterets østside. 17 Så skal han rive vingerne løs uden at skille dem helt fra kroppen og så brænde resten af fuglen på alteret. På den måde bliver det et lifligt offer for Gud.

Leviticus 1

The Law of Burnt Offerings

1Then the Lord called to Moses and spoke to him from the tent of meeting, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When any man of you brings an [a]offering to the Lord, you shall bring your [b]offering of animals from the herd or the flock. If his offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he shall offer it, a male without defect; he shall offer it at the doorway of the tent of meeting, that he may be accepted before the Lord. He shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, that it may be accepted for him to make atonement on his behalf. He shall slay the [c]young bull before the Lord; and Aaron’s sons the priests shall offer up the blood and sprinkle the blood around on the altar that is at the doorway of the tent of meeting. He shall then skin the burnt offering and cut it into its pieces. The sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire. Then Aaron’s sons the priests shall arrange the pieces, the head and the suet over the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar. Its entrails, however, and its legs he shall wash with water. And the priest shall offer up in smoke all of it on the altar for a burnt offering, an offering by fire of a soothing aroma to the Lord.

10 ‘But if his offering is from the flock, of the sheep or of the goats, for a burnt offering, he shall offer it a male without defect. 11 He shall slay it on the side of the altar northward before the Lord, and Aaron’s sons the priests shall sprinkle its blood around on the altar. 12 He shall then cut it into its pieces with its head and its suet, and the priest shall arrange them on the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar. 13 The entrails, however, and the legs he shall wash with water. And the priest shall offer all of it, and offer it up in smoke on the altar; it is a burnt offering, an offering by fire of a soothing aroma to the Lord.

14 ‘But if his offering to the Lord is a burnt offering of birds, then he shall bring his offering from the turtledoves or from young pigeons. 15 The priest shall bring it to the altar, and wring off its head and offer it up in smoke on the altar; and its blood is to be drained out on the side of the altar. 16 He shall also take away its crop with its feathers and cast it beside the altar eastward, to the place of the [d]ashes. 17 Then he shall tear it by its wings, but shall not sever it. And the priest shall offer it up in smoke on the altar on the wood which is on the fire; it is a burnt offering, an offering by fire of a soothing aroma to the Lord.
