1The Lord said to Moses, “Here is a command I want you to give the Israelites. Tell them, ‘Make sure to present to me my food offerings. Do it at the appointed time. Their smell will please me.’ Tell them, ‘Here is the food offering you must present to the Lord. Present to him two lambs a year old. They must not have any flaws. Present them as a regular burnt offering each day. Offer one lamb in the morning. Offer the other when the sun goes down. Present a grain offering along with them. It must have eight cups of the finest flour. Mix it with a quart of oil made from pressed olives. It is the regular burnt offering. The Lord established it at Mount Sinai. It has a pleasant smell. It is a food offering presented to the Lord. Along with that, offer a quart of wine as a drink offering. It must be given along with each lamb.

Sacrifice it along with the same kind of grain offering and drink offering that you present in the morning. It is a food offering. Its smell pleases the Lord.
