← Exodus 40   Leviticus 2 →

1 And Jehovah called to Moses, and spoke to him from the Tabernacle of the congregation, saying,

2 Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, If any man of you offer an offering to Jehovah, you shall offer your offering from the beast, from the herd, and from the flock.

3 If his offering be a burnt·​·offering from the herd, let him offer a perfect male; he shall offer it for his own good·​·pleasure at the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation before Jehovah.

4 And he shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt·​·offering; and it shall be·​·well·​·pleasing for him to make·​·atonement on him.

5 And he shall slaughter the young of the herd before Jehovah; and the priests, the sons of Aaron, shall offer the blood, and sprinkle the blood all around on the altar that is by the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation.

6 And he shall strip·​·off the skin of the burnt·​·offering, and section it into her sections.

7 And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and arrange the wood upon the fire;

8 and the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall arrange the sections, with the head and the fat, on the wood that is on the fire which is on the altar;

9 but its inward·​·parts and its legs shall he bathe in water; and the priest shall burn· it all ·as·​·incense on the altar, for a burnt·​·offering, a fire·​·offering, a restful smell to Jehovah.

10 And if his offering be from the flock, from the sheep*, or from the goats, for a burnt·​·offering, he shall offer it, a perfect male.

11 And he shall slaughter it on the flank* of the altar northward before Jehovah; and the priests, the sons of Aaron, shall sprinkle its blood all around upon the altar.

12 And he shall section it into its sections, and with its head and its fat; and the priest shall arrange them on the wood that is on the fire which is on the altar:

13 but he shall bathe its inward·​·parts and its legs with water; and the priest shall offer it all, and burn· it ·as·​·incense on the altar; it is a burnt·​·offering, a fire·​·offering, a restful smell to Jehovah.

14 And if the burnt·​·offering for his offering to Jehovah be of fowls, then he shall offer his offering of turtledoves, or of young doves.

15 And the priest shall offer it to the altar, and wring·​·off its head, and burn· it ·for·​·incense on the altar; and its blood shall be pressed·​·out on the wall of the altar;

16 and he shall remove its crop with its feathers and cast it beside the altar eastward, to the place of the burnt fatness;

17 and he shall split* it with its wings, he shall not separate it; and the priest shall burn· it ·for·​·incense on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire: it is a burnt·​·offering, a fire·​·offering, a restful smell to Jehovah.

Explanation of Leviticus 1      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-2. The Lord must be worshiped from natural and spiritual good together

Verses 3-9. But worship is first from natural good, or affection, in the order of time

Verses 10-13. Secondly, it is from spiritual affection

Verses 14-17. And thirdly, from the same affections on a lower plane.
