1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 When a person sins and acts unfaithfully against the Lord by lying to another concerning something left in storage, or entrusted to him, or theft, or by extorting his neighbor, 3 or by finding a lost item and lying about it, and he swears falsely concerning one of all the things that a man may do to sin in these things, 4 when he sins and he is found guilty, he shall return whatever he stole, or whatever he extorted, or whatever was left in storage with him, or the lost item which he found, 5 or about which he swore falsely, then he shall repay it in full and shall add one-fifth to it. He shall give it to whom it belongs on the day that he is found guilty. 6 And he shall bring his guilt offering to the Lord, a ram without blemish from the flock—or its equivalent value—for a guilt offering to the priest. 7 And the priest shall make atonement for him before the Lord, and he shall be forgiven for anything he may have done to incur guilt.
8 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 9 Command Aaron and his sons, saying: This is the law for the burnt offering. The burnt offering shall be on the hearth upon the altar all night until the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be kept burning on it. 10 The priest shall put on his linen robe, and his linen undergarments on his body. Then he shall remove the ashes from the fire of the burnt offering on the altar, and he shall put them beside the altar. 11 Then he shall take off his garments and put on other garments, and he shall bring the ashes outside the camp to a clean place. 12 The fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it. It shall not go out. The priest shall feed it with wood every morning. He will arrange the burnt offering on it, and he shall burn the fat of the peace offerings on it. 13 A perpetual fire shall be kept burning on the altar. It shall never go out.
14 This is the law of the grain offering. The sons of Aaron shall offer it before the Lord on the altar. 15 He shall take from it a handful of the flour of the grain offering, and of the oil and all the frankincense which is on the grain offering, and shall burn it on the altar for a pleasing aroma as a memorial to the Lord. 16 Aaron and his sons shall eat the remainder of it; it shall be eaten without leaven in a holy place. They shall eat it in the court of the tent of meeting. 17 It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it to them for their portion of My food offerings made by fire. It is most holy, as is the sin offering and as is the guilt offering. 18 All the males among the children of Aaron shall eat of it. It shall be a perpetual statute in your generations concerning the food offerings of the Lord made by fire. Everyone who touches them shall become holy.
19 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 20 This is the offering of Aaron and of his sons which they shall offer to the Lord in the day when he is anointed: a tenth part of an ephah of wheat flour for a regular grain offering, half of it in the morning and half at night. 21 It shall be made on a griddle with olive oil. When it is well mixed, you shall bring it; and the baked pieces of the grain offering you shall offer as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. 22 The priest from among the sons of Aaron who is anointed to succeed him shall offer it. It is a perpetual statute to the Lord. It shall be completely burned up. 23 For every grain offering for the priest shall be completely burned up. It shall not be eaten.
24 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 25 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying: This is the law of the sin offering: In the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the sin offering also be killed before the Lord. It is most holy. 26 The priest who offers it for sin shall eat it. In a holy place it shall be eaten in the court of the tent of meeting. 27 Whatever touches its flesh shall be holy, and when blood is sprinkled on any garment, you shall wash it in a holy place. 28 And the clay vessel where it is boiled shall be broken, and if it is boiled in a bronze pot, it shall be both scoured and rinsed in water. 29 All the males among the priests shall eat from this offering. It is most holy. 30 Any sin offering where blood is brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement in the holy place shall not be eaten. It shall be burned up in the fire.
1 Likewise this is the law of the guilt offering. It is most holy. 2 In the place where they kill the burnt offering they shall kill the guilt offering, and its blood shall he sprinkle on the sides of the altar. 3 He shall offer all the fat. The fatty tail and the fat that covers the entrails, 4 and the two kidneys and the fat that is on them, which is on the loins, and the appendage that is above the liver, along with the kidneys, he shall take away. 5 And the priest shall burn them on the altar for a food offering made by fire to the Lord. It is a guilt offering. 6 Every male among the priests shall eat from it. It shall be eaten in a holy place. It is most holy.
7 As the sin offering, so is the guilt offering; there is one law for them: the priest who makes atonement shall have it. 8 The priest who offers anyone’s burnt offering shall have for himself the skin of the burnt offering that he has offered. 9 Every grain offering that is baked in the oven and all that is prepared in a pan or griddle shall be for the priest who offers it. 10 And every grain offering, whether mixed with oil or dry, shall be equally shared among all the sons of Aaron.
11 This is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings that a person shall offer to the Lord.
12 If he gives it as a thanksgiving offering, then he shall offer with the thanksgiving sacrifice unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers smeared with oil, and cakes of wheat flour mixed with olive oil. 13 Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with the sacrifice of his thanksgiving peace offerings. 14 From this he shall offer one loaf from each offering, as a gift to the Lord. It shall be for the priest who sprinkles the blood of the peace offerings. 15 The flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day that it is offered; he shall not leave any of it until the morning.
16 But if the sacrifice of his offering is a vow or a voluntary offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offers his sacrifice, and on the next day also the remainder of it can be eaten. 17 But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burned up with fire. 18 If any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings is eaten at all on the third day, the one eating shall not be accepted, nor shall it be imputed to him who offers it. It shall be contaminated, and the one who eats of it shall bear his iniquity.
19 The flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten. It shall be burned up with fire. And as for the other flesh, all who are ritually clean can eat of it. 20 But the person who eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings that belong to the Lord, and who has any uncleanness on him, that individual shall be cut off from his people. 21 Moreover the person who shall touch any unclean thing, whether the uncleanness of man or any unclean beast or any detestable unclean creature, and then eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace offering that belongs to the Lord, that individual shall be cut off from his people.
22 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 23 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: You shall not eat any fat of an ox, a sheep, or a goat. 24 The fat of an animal that dies of itself and the fat of that which is torn by beasts may be used in any other way, but you shall certainly not eat of it. 25 For whoever eats the fat of an animal that is a food offering made by fire to the Lord, that individual shall be cut off from his people. 26 Moreover you shall not eat any manner of blood, whether from a fowl or animal, in any of your dwellings. 27 Whoever eats any manner of blood, that individual shall be cut off from his people.
28 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 29 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: He who offers the sacrifice of his peace offerings to the Lord shall bring his sacrifice to the Lord from his peace offerings. 30 His own hands shall bring the food offerings of the Lord made by fire, the fat with the breast that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before the Lord. 31 The priest shall burn the fat on the altar, but the breast shall be for Aaron and his sons. 32 The right thigh you shall give to the priest for a contribution offering for the sacrifice of your peace offerings. 33 The one among the sons of Aaron who offers the blood of the peace offerings and the fat shall have the right thigh for his portion. 34 For the breast that is waved and the thigh that is contributed I have taken from the children of Israel, from the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons as a perpetual portion from the children of Israel.
35 This is the consecrated portion for Aaron and his sons, from the food offerings of the Lord made by fire, in the day when Moses presented them to minister as priests before the Lord, 36 which the Lord commanded that they be given this, in the day that he anointed them, from the children of Israel as a perpetual portion throughout their generations.
37 This is the law of the burnt offering, of the grain offering, and of the sin offering, and of the guilt offering, and of the ordinations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings, 38 which the Lord commanded Moses on Mount Sinai, in the day that He commanded the children of Israel to offer their offerings to the Lord in the Wilderness of Sinai.
1 “Then the kingdom of heaven shall be like ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were wise and five were foolish. 3 Those who were foolish took their lamps, but took no oil with them. 4 But the wise took jars of oil with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom delayed, they all rested and slept.
6 “But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Look, the bridegroom is coming! Come out to meet him!’
7 “Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. 8 But the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps have gone out.’
9 “The wise answered, ‘No, lest there not be enough for us and you. Go rather to those who sell it, and buy some for yourselves.’
10 “But while they went to buy some, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.
11 “Afterward, the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open the door for us.’
12 “But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’
13 “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.
14 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling into a far country, who called his own servants and entrusted his goods to them. 15 To one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to every man according to his ability. And immediately he took his journey. 16 He who had received the five talents went and traded with them and made another five talents. 17 So also, he who had received two gained another two. 18 But he who had received one went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money.
19 “After a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 He who had received five talents came and brought the other five talents, saying, ‘Master, you entrusted to me five talents. Look, I have gained five talents more.’
21 “His master said to him, ‘Well done, you good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things. I will make you ruler over many things. Enter the joy of your master.’
22 “He who had received two talents also came and said, ‘Master, you entrusted me with two talents. See, I have gained two more talents besides them.’
23 “His master said to him, ‘Well done, you good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things. I will make you ruler over many things. Enter the joy of your master.’
24 “Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Master, I knew that you are a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not winnow. 25 So I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’
26 “His master answered, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not winnowed. 27 Then you ought to have given my money to the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest.
28 “‘So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from him who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away. 30 And throw the unprofitable servant into outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’”
