Chinese Contemporary Bible (Traditional)

利未記 6

1耶和華對摩西說: 「如果有人犯罪,不忠於耶和華,拒絕歸還同胞委託他保管的物品或抵押品,或搶掠同胞,或欺騙同胞, 或撿到東西卻矢口否認,或起假誓,或犯其他類似的罪, 他必須歸還一切靠偷盜、欺詐、侵佔、拾遺、 或起假誓得來的東西,他必須在獻贖過祭那天如數歸還物主,並加賠五分之一。 他要從羊群中選一隻毫無殘疾的公綿羊,或把同等價值的銀子帶到祭司那裡,獻給耶和華作贖過祭。 祭司要在耶和華面前為他贖罪,他就會得到赦免。」

祭司獻燔祭的條例

耶和華對摩西說: 「你要吩咐亞倫及其子孫遵行以下獻燔祭的條例。

「燔祭要整夜留在祭壇上,壇上的火要不停地燃燒。 10 早晨,祭司要穿上細麻衣袍和內衣,將燔祭壇上的灰燼清理好,放在祭壇旁邊。 11 然後,他要更換衣服,把灰燼拿到營外潔淨的地方。 12 祭壇上的火要不斷燃燒,不能熄滅。祭司每天早上要在壇上加柴,擺上燔祭,在上面燒平安祭牲的脂肪。 13 壇上的火必須不斷燃燒,不可熄滅。

祭司獻素祭的條例

14 「以下是獻素祭的條例。

「祭司——亞倫的子孫要在祭壇前向耶和華獻素祭。 15 祭司要從素祭中拿一把調油的細麵粉和所有的乳香,作為象徵放在壇上焚燒,作蒙耶和華悅納的馨香之祭。 16 亞倫及其子孫要吃剩下的祭物,要在會幕院子裡的聖潔之處做無酵餅吃。 17 做餅時不可加酵。這些祭物是我從獻給我的火祭中賜給他們的,像贖罪祭和贖過祭一樣是至聖之物。 18 亞倫的子孫中,男子都可以吃。這是他們世世代代應得之份。凡接觸到這些祭物的都會變得聖潔。」

19 耶和華對摩西說: 20 「亞倫及其子孫受膏那天,要獻給耶和華一公斤細麵粉作為日常獻的素祭,早晚各獻一半。 21 要把這些細麵粉調上油,用煎鍋做餅,切成塊獻上,作為蒙耶和華悅納的馨香之祭。 22 亞倫子孫中繼任大祭司的,受膏時要獻上素祭。這種祭物屬於耶和華,必須全部燒掉。 23 祭司獻的這種素祭不可以吃,要全部燒掉。」

祭司獻贖罪祭的條例

24 耶和華對摩西說: 25 「你把以下贖罪祭的條例告訴亞倫及其子孫。

「贖罪祭是至聖的,要在殺燔祭牲的地方,在耶和華面前宰祭牲。 26 獻這祭的祭司要在會幕院子裡的聖潔之處吃這祭牲。 27 凡接觸到這些祭肉的,都會變得聖潔。如果衣服被濺上血,則要在聖潔之處把衣服洗淨。 28 用來煮祭肉的瓦鍋,用後都要打碎。如果用的是銅鍋,要擦乾淨並用水沖洗。 29 這些祭肉是至聖之物,祭司家族中的男子都可以吃。 30 如果祭牲的血被帶進會幕,在聖所內進行贖罪,就不可吃祭肉,必須全部燒掉。

The Message

Leviticus 6

11-6 God spoke to Moses: “When anyone sins by betraying trust with God by deceiving his neighbor regarding something entrusted to him, or by robbing or cheating or threatening him; or if he has found something lost and lies about it and swears falsely regarding any of these sins that people commonly commit—when he sins and is found guilty, he must return what he stole or extorted, restore what was entrusted to him, return the lost thing he found, or anything else about which he swore falsely. He must make full compensation, add twenty percent to it, and hand it over to the owner on the same day he brings his Compensation-Offering. He must present to God as his Compensation-Offering a ram without any defect from the flock, assessed at the value of a Compensation-Offering.

“Thus the priest will make atonement for him before God and he’s forgiven of any of the things that one does that bring guilt.”

Further Instructions

8-13 God spoke to Moses: “Command Aaron and his sons. Tell them, These are the instructions for the Whole-Burnt-Offering. Leave the Whole-Burnt-Offering on the Altar hearth through the night until morning, with the fire kept burning on the Altar. Then dress in your linen clothes with linen underwear next to your body. Remove the ashes remaining from the Whole-Burnt-Offering and place them beside the Altar. Then change clothes and carry the ashes outside the camp to a clean place. Meanwhile keep the fire on the Altar burning; it must not go out. Replenish the wood for the fire every morning, arrange the Whole-Burnt-Offering on it, and burn the fat of the Peace-Offering on top of it all. Keep the fire burning on the Altar continuously. It must not go out.

14-18 “These are the instructions for the Grain-Offering. Aaron’s sons are to present it to God in front of the Altar. The priest takes a handful of the fine flour of the Grain-Offering with its oil and all its incense and burns this as a memorial on the Altar, a pleasing fragrance to God. Aaron and his sons eat the rest of it. It is unraised bread and so eaten in a holy place—in the Courtyard of the Tent of Meeting. They must not bake it with yeast. I have designated it as their share of the gifts presented to me. It is very holy, like the Absolution-Offering and the Compensation-Offering. Any male descendant among Aaron’s sons may eat it. This is a fixed rule regarding God’s gifts, stretching down the generations. Anyone who touches these offerings must be holy.”

19-23 God spoke to Moses: “This is the offering which Aaron and his sons each are to present to God on the day he is anointed: two quarts of fine flour as a regular Grain-Offering, half in the morning and half in the evening. Prepare it with oil on a griddle. Bring it well-mixed and then present it crumbled in pieces as a pleasing fragrance to God. Aaron’s son who is anointed to succeed him offers it to God—this is a fixed rule. The whole thing is burned. Every Grain-Offering of a priest is burned completely; it must not be eaten.”

24-30 God spoke to Moses: “Tell Aaron and his sons, These are the instructions for the Absolution-Offering. Slaughter the Absolution-Offering in the place where the Whole-Burnt-Offering is slaughtered before God—the offering is most holy. The priest in charge eats it in a holy place, the Courtyard of the Tent of Meeting. Anyone who touches any of the meat must be holy. A garment that gets blood spattered on it must be washed in a holy place. Break the clay pot in which the meat was cooked. If it was cooked in a bronze pot, scour it and rinse it with water. Any male among the priestly families may eat it; it is most holy. But any Absolution-Offering whose blood is brought into the Tent of Meeting to make atonement in the Sanctuary must not be eaten, it has to be burned.”
