Leviticus 1:1-17

Rules for Burnt Offerings

1The Lord called out to Moses. He spoke to him from the tent of meeting. He said, 2“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.

3“ ‘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. 4They 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. 5The 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. 6The skin must be removed from the animal brought for the burnt offering. Then the animal must be cut into pieces. 7The priests in Aaron’s family line must build a fire on the altar. They must place wood on the fire. 8Then they must place the pieces of the animal on the burning wood on the altar. The pieces include the head and the fat. 9The 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. 11They 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. 12They 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. 13They 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. 15The 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. 16The 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. 17He 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.

Levítico 1:1-17

O Holocausto

1Da Tenda do Encontro o Senhor chamou Moisés e lhe ordenou: 2“Diga o seguinte aos israelitas: Quando alguém trouxer um animal como oferta ao Senhor, que seja do gado ou do rebanho de ovelhas.

3“Se o holocausto1.3 Isto é, sacrifício totalmente queimado; também em todo o livro de Levítico. for de gado, oferecerá um macho sem defeito. Ele o apresentará à entrada da Tenda do Encontro, para que seja aceito pelo Senhor, 4e porá a mão sobre a cabeça do animal do holocausto para que seja aceito como propiciação em seu lugar. 5Então o novilho será morto perante o Senhor, e os sacerdotes, descendentes de Arão, trarão o sangue e o derramarão em todos os lados do altar, que está à entrada da Tenda do Encontro. 6Depois se tirará a pele do animal, que será cortado em pedaços. 7Então os descendentes do sacerdote Arão acenderão o fogo do altar e arrumarão a lenha sobre o fogo. 8Em seguida, arrumarão os pedaços, inclusive a cabeça e a gordura, sobre a lenha que está no fogo do altar. 9As vísceras e as pernas serão lavadas com água. E o sacerdote queimará tudo isso no altar. É um holocausto; oferta preparada no fogo, de aroma agradável ao Senhor.

10“Se a oferta for um holocausto do rebanho—quer de cordeiros quer de cabritos—, oferecerá um macho sem defeito. 11O animal será morto no lado norte do altar, perante o Senhor; os sacerdotes, descendentes de Arão, derramarão o sangue nos lados do altar. 12Então o animal será cortado em pedaços. O sacerdote arrumará os pedaços, inclusive a cabeça e a gordura, sobre a lenha que está no fogo do altar. 13As vísceras e as pernas serão lavadas com água. O sacerdote trará tudo isso como oferta e o queimará no altar. É um holocausto; oferta preparada no fogo, de aroma agradável ao Senhor.

14“Se a sua oferta ao Senhor for um holocausto de aves, traga uma rolinha ou um pombinho. 15O sacerdote trará a ave ao altar, destroncará o pescoço dela e a queimará, e deixará escorrer o sangue da ave na parede do altar. 16Ele retirará o papo com o seu conteúdo1.16 Ou o papo e as penas e o jogará no lado leste do altar, onde ficam as cinzas. 17Rasgará a ave pelas asas, sem dividi-la totalmente, e então o sacerdote a queimará sobre a lenha acesa no altar. É um holocausto; oferta preparada no fogo, de aroma agradável ao Senhor.
