Levítico 1

El holocausto

1El Señor llamó a Moisés y le habló desde la Tienda de reunión. Le ordenó que les dijera a los israelitas: «Cuando alguno de vosotros traiga una ofrenda al Señor, deberá presentar un animal de ganado vacuno u ovino.

»Si el animal que ofrece en holocausto es de ganado vacuno, deberá presentar un macho sin defecto, a la entrada de la Tienda de reunión. Así será aceptable al Señor. Pondrá su mano sobre la cabeza de la víctima, la cual le será aceptada en su lugar y le servirá de propiciación. Después degollará el novillo ante el Señor, y los hijos de Aarón, los sacerdotes, tomarán la sangre y la derramarán alrededor del altar que está a la entrada de la Tienda de reunión. Luego desollará la víctima del holocausto y la cortará en trozos. Los hijos de Aarón, los sacerdotes, harán fuego sobre el altar y le echarán leña; después acomodarán los trozos sobre la leña encendida del altar, junto con la cabeza y el sebo. Las entrañas y las patas se lavarán con agua, y el sacerdote lo quemará todo en el altar. Es un holocausto, una ofrenda presentada por fuego de aroma grato al Señor.

10 »Si alguien ofrece un holocausto de ganado ovino, sea de corderos o de cabras, deberá presentar un macho sin defecto. 11 Lo degollará ante el Señor, al lado norte del altar, y los hijos de Aarón, los sacerdotes, derramarán la sangre alrededor del altar. 12 Luego lo cortará en trozos, los cuales el sacerdote acomodará sobre la leña encendida del altar, junto con la cabeza y el sebo. 13 Las entrañas y las patas se lavarán con agua, y el sacerdote lo tomará todo y lo quemará en el altar. Es un holocausto, una ofrenda presentada por fuego de aroma grato al Señor.

14 »Si alguien ofrece al Señor un holocausto de ave, deberá presentar una tórtola o un pichón de paloma. 15 El sacerdote llevará el ave al altar para quemarla. Le arrancará la cabeza; después exprimirá la sangre sobre un lado del altar, 16 y le quitará también el buche y las entrañas, y los arrojará hacia el lado oriental del altar, donde se echa la ceniza. 17 Después la desgarrará por las alas, pero sin arrancárselas. Entonces el sacerdote la quemará en el altar, sobre la leña encendida. Es un holocausto, una ofrenda presentada por fuego de aroma grato al Señor.

Amplified Bible

Leviticus 1

The Law of Burnt Offerings

1The Lord [a]called to Moses and spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, saying, “Speak to the [b]children of Israel and say to them, ‘When any one of you brings an offering to the Lord, you shall bring your offering of [domestic] animals from the herd (cattle, oxen) or from the flock (sheep, goats). If his offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he shall offer a male without blemish; he shall offer it at the doorway of the Tent of Meeting so that he may be accepted before the Lord. He shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering [transferring symbolically his guilt to the sacrifice], that it may be [c]accepted for him to make atonement on his behalf. He shall kill the young bull before the Lord; and Aaron’s sons the priests shall present the blood and sprinkle the blood around on the altar that is at the doorway of the Tent of Meeting. Then he shall skin the burnt offering and cut it into pieces. The sons of Aaron the [high] priest shall put fire on the altar [of burnt offering] and arrange wood on the fire. Then Aaron’s sons the priests shall arrange the pieces, the head and the fat, on the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar. But he shall wash its entrails and its legs with water. The priest shall offer all of it up in smoke on the altar as a burnt offering. It is an offering by fire, a sweet and soothing aroma to the Lord.

10 ‘But if his offering is from the flock, of the sheep or of the goats, as a burnt offering, he shall offer a male without blemish. 11 He shall kill it on the north side of the altar before the Lord, and Aaron’s sons the priests shall sprinkle its blood around on the altar. 12 He shall cut it into pieces, with its head and its fat, and the priest shall arrange them on the wood which is on the fire that is on the altar. 13 But he shall wash the entrails and legs with water. 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, a sweet and soothing aroma to the Lord.

14 ‘But if his offering to the Lord is a burnt offering of birds, then he shall bring turtledoves or young pigeons as his offering. 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 remove its [d]crop with its feathers and throw it next to the east side of the altar, in the place for ashes. 17 Then he shall tear it open by its wings, but shall not sever it. And the priest shall offer it up in smoke on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire. It is a burnt offering, an offering by fire, a sweet and soothing aroma to the Lord.

Notas al pie

  1. Leviticus 1:1 Before this God had spoken to Moses from the mountain, but now God dwelt among His people in fellowship with them and talked with His servant Moses “from the Tent of Meeting.” The people were entering into a new relationship with God.
  2. Leviticus 1:2 In general, sons (children) of Israel or Israel or Israelites refers to all the people (males and females) of the various tribes descended from the twelve sons (Gen 35:23-26) of Jacob (later renamed Israel by God). In verses concerning things such as warfare or circumcision sons of Israel or Israel or Israelites usually refers only to the males. Tribes of ancient people were identified by the name of their founding ancestor. Therefore, this same general rule applies when referring to individual tribal groups, e.g. sons of Reuben, Reuben, Reubenites and so throughout.
  3. Leviticus 1:4 By laying his hands on the head of the sacrifice the offerer identified himself with it and through its death it became an atonement or covering for his sin. Because the unblemished sacrifice “covered” his sin it placed the offerer in a right relationship with God, just as later under the new covenant the perfection and sacrifice of the Christ would cover the imperfection and sin of those who identified with Him and accepted Him as Savior.
  4. Leviticus 1:16 An enlargement of the gullet that serves as a receptacle for food.
