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.

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.
