Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 And the Lord said unto Moses, saying:
2 say to the sons of Israel: if any soul sins by mistake against any commandments of the Lord and does something that it should not do;
3 if the anointed priest sins and makes the people guilty, then for his sin with which he sinned, let him present a calf from cattle, without vice, to the Lord as a sacrifice of sin,
4 and he will bring the calf to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the Lord, and lay his hands on the head of the calf, and he will kill the calf before the Lord;
5 and the priest shall take the anointed one, the blood of the calf, and bring it to the tabernacle of the congregation,
6 and the priest shall dip his finger in blood, and sprinkle with blood seven times before the Lord before the veil of the sanctuary;
7 and the priest will lay the blood [of the calf] before the Lord on the horns of the altar of incense, which is in the tabernacle of the congregation, and will pour the rest of the blood of the calf at the foot of the altar of burnt offerings, which is at the entrance of the tabernacle of congregation;
eight and he will take out from the calf for sin all the fat of it, the fat that covers the innards, and the entire fat that is on the innards,
nine and both the kidneys and the fat on them, which on the quilts, and the omentum on the liver; with kidneys he will separate it,
ten how is separated from the calf of a peace victim; and the priest will burn them on the altar of burnt offering;
eleven and the skin of the calf and all its flesh with its head and legs, and its innards and its uncleanness,
12 let the whole calf take it outside the camp to a clean place where ashes are poured out, and burn it with fire on wood; where ash is poured out, let it be burnt.

13 If the whole society of Israel sins by mistake and the work is hidden from the eyes of the assembly, and does something against the commandments of the Lord, which was not to be done, and it will be guilty,
fourteen when the sin with which they have sinned is recognized, may they, from the whole of society, present from the cattle a calf as a sacrifice for sin and bring it before the tabernacle of the congregation;
fifteen and the elders of the congregation will lay their hands on the head of the bullock before the Lord, and they will kill the bullock before the Lord.
16 And the priest will bring the anointed blood of the calf into the tabernacle of the congregation,
17 and the priest shall dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle it seven times before the Lord before the veil [of the sanctuary];
18 and he will lay the blood on the horns of the altar, which is before the Lord in the tabernacle of the congregation, and will pour the rest of the blood at the foot of the altar of burnt offerings, which is at the entrance of the tabernacle of the congregation;
19 and all his fatness will be taken out of him and burned on the altar;
20 and he will do to the calf what is done to the calf for sin; so he must do with him, and so the priest will cleanse them, and they will be forgiven;
21 and he will carry the calf outside the camp, and will burn it as he had burned the previous calf. This is a sacrifice for the sin of society.

22 And if the chief sins, and by mistake does something against the commandments of the Lord his God, which was not to be done, he will be guilty,
23 when he knows the sin with which he sinned, let him bring a goat without sacrifice,
24 and he will lay his hand on the head of the goat, and kill it in the place where the burnt offerings before the Lord are slaughtered: this is a sin offering;
25 and the priest will take with his finger the blood of the sacrifice for sin and lay on the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and the rest of his blood will be poured at the foot of the altar of burnt offering;
26 and he will burn his whole fat on the altar, like the fat of a peace sacrifice, and so the priest will cleanse him of his sin, and be forgiven him.

27 If one of the people of the earth sins by mistake and does something against the commandments of the Lord, which was not to be done, he will be guilty,
28 when he knows the sin by which he sinned, let him sacrifice a goat without vice for his sin, by which he sinned,
29th and he will lay his hand on the head of the sin offering, and will slaughter [the goat] as a sin offering in the place [where they slaughter] the burnt offering;
thirty and the priest will take her blood with his finger, and lay on the horns of the altar a burnt offering, and the rest of her blood will be poured out at the foot of the altar;
31 and her whole fat will be separated, just as the fat is separated from the peace sacrifice, and [his] priest will burn it on the altar in a pleasant fragrance to the Lord; and so the priest will cleanse him, and he will be forgiven.
32 And if from a flock of sheep he wants to make a sacrifice for sin, let him bring a female, without vice,
33 and he will lay his hand on the head of the sin offering, and will slaughter it in the sin offering at the place where the burnt offering is slain;
34 and the priest will take with his finger the blood of this sin offering and lay on the horns of the altar a burnt offering, and the rest of its blood will be poured out at the foot of the altar;
35 and her whole fat will be separated, as the fat of a sheep is separated from the peace sacrifice, and this priest will burn it on the altar as a sacrifice to the Lord; and so the priest will cleanse him of the sin with which he sinned, and he will be forgiven.
