1And this is the law of the offering for wrongdoing: it is most holy.
2They are to put to death the offering for wrongdoing in the same place as the burned offering; and the priest is to put the blood on and round the altar.
3And all the fat of it, the fat tail and the fat covering the inside parts, is to be given as an offering.
4And the two kidneys, and the fat on them, which is by the top of the legs, and the fat joining the liver and the kidneys, he is to take away:
5They are to be burned by the priest on the altar for an offering made by fire to the Lord: it is an offering for wrongdoing.
6Every male among the priests may have it as food in a holy place: it is most holy.
7As is the sin-offering, so is the offering for wrongdoing; there is one law for them: the priest who makes the offering to take away sin, he is to have it.
8And the priest offering any man’s burned offering for him, may have the skin of the burned offering which is offered by him.
9And every meal offering which is cooked in the oven and everything made in a cooking pot or on a flat plate, is for the priest by whom it is offered.
10And every meal offering, mixed with oil or dry, is for all the sons of Aaron in equal measure.
11And this is the law for the peace-offerings offered to the Lord.
12If any man gives his offering as a praise-offering, then let him give with the offering, unleavened cakes mixed with oil and thin unleavened cakes covered with oil and cakes of the best meal well mixed with oil.
13With his peace-offering let him give cakes of leavened bread, as a praise-offering.
14And let him give one out of every offering to be lifted up before the Lord; that it may be for the priest who puts the blood of the peace-offering on the altar.
15And the flesh of the praise-offering is to be taken as food on the day when it is offered; no part of it may be kept till the morning.
16But if his offering is made because of an oath or given freely, it may be taken as food on the day when it is offered; and the rest may be used up on the day after:
17But if any of the flesh of the offering is still unused on the third day, it is to be burned with fire.
18And if any of the flesh of the peace-offering is taken as food on the third day, it will not be pleasing to God and will not be put to the account of him who gives it; it will be unclean and a cause of sin to him who takes it as food.
19And flesh touched by any unclean thing may not be taken for food: it is to be burned with fire; and as for the flesh of the peace-offerings, everyone who is clean may take it as food:
20But he who is unclean when he takes as food the flesh of the peace-offerings, which are the Lord’s, will be cut off from his people.
21And anyone who, after touching any unclean thing of man or an unclean beast or any unclean and disgusting thing, takes as food the flesh of the peace-offerings, which are the Lord’s, will be cut off from his people.
22And the Lord said to Moses,
23Say to the children of Israel: You are not to take any fat, of ox or sheep or goat, for food.
24And the fat of that which comes to a natural death, and the fat of that which is attacked by beasts, may be used for other purposes, but not in any way for food.
25For anyone who takes as food the fat of any beast of which men make an offering by fire to the Lord, will be cut off from his people.
26And you are not to take for food any blood, of bird or of beast, in any of your houses.
27Whoever takes any blood for food will be cut off from his people.
28And the Lord said to Moses,
29Say to the children of Israel: He who makes a peace-offering to the Lord, is to give an offering to the Lord out of his peace-offering:
30He himself is to take to the Lord the offering made by fire, even the fat with the breast, so that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before the Lord.
31And the fat is to be burned by the priest on the altar, but the breast is for Aaron and his sons.
32And the right leg you are to give to the priest for an offering to be lifted up out of what is given for your peace-offerings.
33That man, among the sons of Aaron, by whom the blood of the peace-offering and the fat are offered, is to have the right leg for his part.
34For the breast which is waved and the right leg which is lifted up on high I have taken from the children of Israel, from their peace-offerings, and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons as their right for ever from the children of Israel.
35This is the holy part given to Aaron and to his sons, out of the offerings made to the Lord by fire, on the day when they were made priests before the Lord;
36Which the Lord said the children of Israel were to give them, on the day when he made them his priests. It is their right for ever from generation to generation.
37These are the laws for the burned offering, the meal offering, and the offering for wrongdoing; and for the making of priests, and for the giving of peace-offerings;
38As they were given by the Lord to Moses on Mount Sinai, on the day when the Lord gave orders to the children of Israel to make their offerings to the Lord, in the waste land of Sinai.
1And the Lord said to Moses,
2Take Aaron, and his sons with him, and the robes and the holy oil and the ox of the sin-offering and the two male sheep and the basket of unleavened bread;
3And let all the people come together at the door of the Tent of meeting.
4And Moses did as the Lord said, and all the people came together at the door of the Tent of meeting.
5And Moses said to the people, This is what the Lord has given orders to be done.
6Then Moses took Aaron and his sons; and after washing them with water,
7He put the coat on him, making it tight with its band, and then the robe, and over it the ephod, with its band of needlework to keep it in place.
8And he put the priest’s bag on him, and in the bag he put the Urim and Thummim.
9And on his head he put the head-dress, and in front of the head-dress the plate of gold, the holy crown, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
10And Moses took the holy oil and put it on the House and on all the things in it, to make them holy.
11Seven times he put oil on the altar and on all its vessels, and on the washing-basin and its base, to make them holy.
12And some of the oil he put on Aaron’s head, to make him holy.
13Then he took Aaron’s sons, clothing them with the coats, and putting the bands round them, and the head-dresses on their heads, as the Lord had given him orders.
14And he took the ox of the sin-offering: and Aaron and his sons put their hands on the head of the ox,
15And he put it to death; and Moses took the blood and put it on the horns of the altar and round it with his finger, and made the altar clean, draining out the blood at the base of the altar; so he made it holy, taking away what was unclean.
16And he took all the fat on the inside parts, and the fat on the liver, and the two kidneys with their fat, to be burned on the altar;
17But the ox, with its skin and its flesh and its waste, was burned with fire outside the tent-circle, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
18And he put the male sheep of the burned offering before the Lord, and Aaron and his sons put their hands on its head,
19And he put it to death; and Moses put some of the blood on and round the altar.
20And when the sheep had been cut into parts, the head and the parts and the fat were burned by Moses.
21And the inside parts and the legs were washed with water and all the sheep was burned by Moses on the altar; it was a burned offering for a sweet smell: it was an offering made by fire to the Lord, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
22And he put the other sheep before the Lord, the sheep with which they were made priests; and Aaron and his sons put their hands on the head of the sheep,
23And he put it to death; and Moses took some of the blood and put it on the point of Aaron’s right ear and on the thumb of his right hand and on the great toe of his right foot.
24Then he took Aaron’s sons, and Moses put some of the blood on the point of their right ears and on the thumbs of their right hands and on the great toes of their right feet: and Moses put the blood on and round the altar.
25And he took the fat, and the fat tail, and the fat on the inside parts, and the fat on the liver, and the two kidneys with their fat, and the right leg;
26And out of the basket of unleavened bread which was before the Lord he took one unleavened cake, and one cake of bread with oil on it, and one thin cake, and put them on the fat and on the right leg:
27And he put them all on the hands of Aaron and on the hands of his sons, waving them for a wave offering before the Lord.
28And Moses took them from their hands, and they were burned on the altar on the burned offering, as a priest’s offering for a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
29And Moses took the breast, waving it for a wave offering before the Lord; it was Moses’ part of the sheep of the priest’s offering, as the Lord gave orders to Moses.
30And Moses took some of the holy oil and of the blood which was on the altar and put it on Aaron and on his robes, and on his sons and on his sons’ robes; and made Aaron holy, and his robes and his sons and his sons’ robes with him.
31And Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, The flesh is to be cooked in water at the door of the Tent of meeting, and there you are to take it as food, together with the bread in the basket, as I have given orders, saying, It is the food of Aaron and his sons.
32And that which is over of the flesh and of the bread is to be burned with fire.
33And you are not to go out from the door of the Tent of meeting for seven days, till the days for making you priest are ended; for this will be the work of seven days.
34What has been done this day, has been ordered by the Lord to take away your sin.
35And you are to keep watch for the Lord at the door of the Tent of meeting day and night for seven days, so that death may not come to you: for so he has given me orders.
36And Aaron and his sons did all the things about which the Lord had given orders through Moses.
1A good name is more to be desired than great wealth, and to be respected is better than silver and gold.
2The man of wealth and the poor man come face to face: the Lord is the maker of them all.
3The sharp man sees the evil and takes cover: the simple go straight on and get into trouble.
4The reward of a gentle spirit and the fear of the Lord is wealth and honour and life.
5Thorns and nets are in the way of the twisted: he who keeps watch over his soul will be far from them.
6If a child is trained up in the right way, even when he is old he will not be turned away from it.
7The man of wealth has rule over the poor, and he who gets into debt is a servant to his creditor.
8By planting the seed of evil a man will get in the grain of sorrow, and the rod of his wrath will be broken.
9He who is kind will have a blessing, for he gives of his bread to the poor.
10Send away the man of pride, and argument will go out; truly fighting and shame will come to an end.
11He whose heart is clean is dear to the Lord; for the grace of his lips the king will be his friend.
12The eyes of the Lord keep knowledge, but by him the acts of the false man will be overturned.
13The hater of work says, There is a lion outside: I will be put to death in the streets.
14The mouth of strange women is a deep hole: he with whom the Lord is angry will go down into it.
15Foolish ways are deep-seated in the heart of a child, but the rod of punishment will send them far from him.
16He who is cruel to the poor for the purpose of increasing his profit, and he who gives to the man of wealth, will only come to be in need.
17Let your ear be bent down for hearing my words, and let your heart give thought to knowledge.
18For it is a delight to keep them in your heart, to have them ready on your lips.
19So that your faith may be in the Lord, I have made them clear to you this day, even to you.
20Have I not put in writing for you thirty sayings, with wise suggestions and knowledge,
21To make you see how certain are true words, so that you may give a true answer to those who put questions to you?
22Do not take away the property of the poor man because he is poor, or be cruel to the crushed ones when they come before the judge:
23For the Lord will give support to their cause, and take the life of those who take their goods.
24Do not be friends with a man who is given to wrath; do not go in the company of an angry man:
25For fear of learning his ways and making a net ready for your soul.
26Be not one of those who give their hands in an agreement, or of those who make themselves responsible for debts:
27If you have nothing with which to make payment, he will take away your bed from under you.
28Let not the old landmark be moved which your fathers have put in place.
29Have you seen a man who is expert in his business? he will take his place before kings; his place will not be among low persons.
1And he got together his twelve disciples and gave them the power of driving out unclean spirits, and of making well all sorts of disease and pain.
2Now the names of the twelve are these: The first, Simon, who is named Peter, and Andrew, his brother; James, the son of Zebedee, and John, his brother;
3Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew, the tax-farmer; James, the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus;
4Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot, who was false to him.
5These twelve Jesus sent out and gave them orders, saying, Do not go among the Gentiles, or into any town of Samaria,
6But go to the wandering sheep of the house of Israel,
7And, on your way, say, The kingdom of heaven is near.
8Make well those who are ill, give life to the dead, make lepers clean, send evil spirits out of men; freely it has been given to you, freely give.
9Take no gold or silver or copper in your pockets;
10Take no bag for your journey and do not take two coats or shoes or a stick: for the workman has a right to his food.
11And into whatever town or small place you go, make search there for someone who is respected, and make his house your resting-place till you go away.
12And when you go in, say, May peace be on this house.
13And if the house is good enough, let your peace come on it: but if not, let your peace come back to you.
14And whoever will not take you in, or give ear to your words, when you go out from that house or that town, put off its dust from your feet.
15Truly I say to you, It will be better for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of God’s judging than for that town.
16See, I send you out as sheep among wolves. Be then as wise as snakes, and as gentle as doves.
17But be on the watch against men: for they will give you up to the Sanhedrins, and in their Synagogues they will give you blows;
18And you will come before rulers and kings because of me, for a witness to them and to the Gentiles.
19But when you are given up into their hands, do not be troubled about what to say or how to say it: for in that hour what you are to say will be given to you;
20Because it is not you who say the words, but the Spirit of your Father in you.
21And brother will give up brother to death, and the father his child: and children will go against their fathers and mothers, and put them to death.
22And you will be hated by all men because of my name: but he who is strong to the end will have salvation.
23But when they are cruel to you in one town, go in flight to another: for truly, I say to you, You will not have gone through the towns of Israel before the Son of man comes.
24A disciple is not greater than his master, or a servant than his lord.
25It is enough for the disciple that he may be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have given the name Beelzebub to the master of the house, how much more to those of his house!
