Day 2

Leviticus 6:12-7:10

12 Adonai said to Moshe, 

13 “This is the offering for Adonai that Aharon and his sons are to offer on the day he is anointed: two quarts of fine flour, half of it in the morning and half in the evening, as a grain offering from then on. 

14 It is to be well mixed with olive oil and fried on a griddle; then bring it in, break it in pieces and offer the grain offering as a fragrant aroma for Adonai

15 The anointed cohen who will take Aharon’s place from among his descendants will offer it; it is a perpetual obligation. It must be entirely made to go up in smoke for Adonai

16 every grain offering of the cohen is to be entirely made to go up in smoke — it is not to be eaten.”

17 Adonai said to Moshe, 

18 “Tell Aharon and his sons, ‘This is the law for the sin offering: the sin offering is to be slaughtered before Adonai in the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered; it is especially holy. 

19 The cohen who offers it for sin is to eat it — it is to be eaten in a holy place, in the courtyard of the tent of meeting. 

20 Whatever touches its flesh will become holy; if any of its blood splashes on any item of clothing, you are to wash it in a holy place. 

21 The clay pot in which it is cooked must be broken; if it is cooked in a bronze pot, it must be scoured and rinsed in water.

22 Any male from a family of cohanim may eat the sin offering; it is especially holy. 

23 But no sin offering which has had any of its blood brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement in the Holy Place is to be eaten; it is to be burned up completely.

“‘This is the law for the guilt offering: it is especially holy. 

They are to slaughter the guilt offering in the place where they slaughter the burnt offering, and its blood is to be splashed against all sides of the altar. 

He is to offer all its fat — the fat tail, the fat covering the inner organs, 

the two kidneys, the fat on them near the flanks, and the covering of the liver, which he will remove with the kidneys. 

The cohen will make them go up in smoke on the altar as an offering made by fire to Adonai ; it is a guilt offering. 

Every male from a family of cohanim may eat it; it is to be eaten in a holy place; it is especially holy. 

The guilt offering is like the sin offering; the same law governs them — it will belong to the cohen who uses it to make atonement.

“‘The cohen who offers someone’s burnt offering will possess the hide of the burnt offering which he has offered.

“‘Every grain offering baked in the oven, cooked in a pot or fried on a griddle will belong to the cohen who offers it. 

10 But every grain offering which is mixed with olive oil or is dry will belong to all the sons of Aharon equally.
