Numbers 28:1-15

Offerings to the Lord

1 The Lord said to Moses, 2 ‘Tell the Israelites that they must give their gifts to God at the proper time. The smell of the gifts when they burn will make him happy. 3 You must say to them, “This is the offering by fire that you must offer to the Lord: It must be two male lambs that are one year old. They must not have anything wrong with them. That is the burnt offering for every day. 4 You must give one lamb in the morning and one lamb in the evening. 5 With the lambs, you must also offer to God one kilo (2.2 pounds) of flour that you have mixed with one litre (2 pints) of good olive oil. 6 It is a regular burnt offering that God told you about. He told you about it on Sinai mountain. It is an offering by fire to the Lord. The smell as it burns makes the Lord happy. 7 Then the drink offering with it will be one litre (2 pints) of wine for each lamb. In God's Holy Tent, you must pour out a drink offering of the best wine to the Lord. 8 You must offer the other lamb when it begins to get dark. Offer it with a grain offering and a drink offering like the offerings in the morning. You must give it as an offering by fire. The smell of the smoke from these sacrifices will make the Lord happy.

9 Then on the Sabbath day, you must offer two male lambs that are one year old. They must not have anything wrong with them. And you must offer 2 kilos (4.4 pounds) of good flour. Mix that with oil as a grain offering. And you must give the proper drink offering with it. 10 This is the burnt offering for every Sabbath. But you must also give the regular burnt offering with its proper drink offering.

11 Also, on the first day of every month, you must give a burnt offering to the Lord. It must be two young bulls, one male sheep and 7 male lambs. The lambs must be one year old and they must not have anything wrong with them. 12 With each bull and with the male sheep, you must give a grain offering. Mix together 3 kilos of the best flour with olive oil. Offer it to me with each bull. Mix together 2 kilos of the best flour with olive oil. Offer it to me with the male sheep. 13 And with each lamb you must give a grain offering. Mix together 1 kilo of the best flour with olive oil. Offer it to me with each male lamb as a burnt offering to the Lord. The smell of the smoke from these sacrifices will make the Lord happy. 14 And there must be drink offerings with these sacrifices. The offering must be 2 litres of wine for a bull. It must be 1.5 litres for the male sheep and 1 litre for a lamb. That is the burnt offering of each month for every month of the year. 15 Also, you must offer one male goat as a sin offering to the Lord. You must offer it with the proper drink offering. But you must still offer the regular burnt offering.
