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

Rules for Burnt Offerings

1The Lord called out to Moses. He spoke to him from the tent of meeting. He said, “Speak to the Israelites. Tell them, ‘Suppose anyone among you brings an offering to the Lord. They must bring an animal from their herd or flock.

“ ‘If someone brings a burnt offering from the herd, they must offer a male animal. It must not have any flaws. They must bring it to the entrance to the tent of meeting. Then the Lord will accept it. They must place their hand on the head of the burnt offering. Then the Lord will accept it in place of them. It will pay for their sin. The young bull must be killed there in the sight of the Lord. Then the priests in Aaron’s family line must bring its blood to the altar. They must splash it against the sides of the altar. The altar stands at the entrance to the tent of meeting. The skin must be removed from the animal brought for the burnt offering. Then the animal must be cut into pieces. The priests in Aaron’s family line must build a fire on the altar. They must place wood on the fire. Then they must place the pieces of the animal on the burning wood on the altar. The pieces include the head and the fat. The inside parts of the animal must be washed with water. The legs must also be washed. The priest must burn all of it on the altar. It is a burnt offering. It is a food offering. Its smell pleases the Lord.

10 “ ‘If someone offers a burnt offering from the flock, it must be a male animal. It can be a sheep or a goat. It must not have any flaws. 11 They must kill it at the north side of the altar in the sight of the Lord. The priests in Aaron’s family line must splash its blood against the sides of the altar. 12 They must cut the animal into pieces. The priest must place the pieces on the burning wood on the altar. The pieces include the head and the fat. 13 They must wash the inside parts with water. The legs must also be washed. The priest must bring all the parts to the altar. He must burn them there. It is a burnt offering. It is a food offering. Its smell pleases the Lord.

14 “ ‘If someone offers to the Lord a burnt offering of birds, it must be a dove or a young pigeon. 15 The priest must bring it to the altar. He must twist its head off. Then he must burn the rest of the bird on the altar. Its blood must be emptied out on the side of the altar. 16 The priest must remove the small bag inside the bird’s throat. He must also remove the feathers. Then he must throw them to the east side of the altar. That is where the ashes are. 17 He must take hold of the wings of the bird and tear it open. But he must not tear it in two. Then the priest will burn it on the wood burning on the altar. It is a burnt offering. It is a food offering. Its smell pleases the Lord.
