Chapter 13: Animal Sacrifice

It's hard to keep track of all of the animal sacrifices that God commands us to make. There are daily, weekly, monthly, harvest, fifty days after harvest, and ten days of sacrifices during the seventh month. There are special festivals that require sacrifice: Paschal, Passover, and Yom Kippur. There are different kinds of sacrifice: burnt, meat, peace, sin, trespass, heave, and wave offerings. And special sacrifices are required for: sins through ignorance, childbirth, abnormal vaginal bleeding, men with running issues out of their flesh, and after being cleansed with leprosy. I tried to count the number of animals that each person would have to kill each year. The result was 1367, and that didn't include the special sacrifices.

God may have changed his mind about animal sacrifice, though. In Isaiah he said, "Bring no more vain oblations." And in Jeremiah God said, "Eat your own goddamned sacrifices. I never asked for any." (I'm paraphrasing here.)

    The Yom Kippur sacrifice

  107. Perform each year's Yom Kippur sacrifices.
  108. Jewish people consider Yom Kippur (the day of atonement) to be the holiest day of the year. But neither they nor any other modern Bible believers obey the sacrificial procedures that God required in this commandment "as a statute forever" each year "in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month." So I'm giving the complete instructions here. First of all, Aaron (and the priests that succeed him) must bring a young bullock for a sin offing and a ram for a burnt offering into the holy place.
    Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering. Leviticus 16:3
    The priest must put on the holy linen coat, linen breeches, linen girdle, and linen mitre. These are holy garments, so he must take a bath before putting them on.
    He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on. Leviticus 16:4
    In addition to the bullock and ram that he previously brought, the priest must also bring two young goats and a ram from members of the congregation for a burnt offering.
    And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering. Leviticus 16:5
    First he kills the bullock that he brought for himself as a sin offering to make atonement for himself and his household.
    And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house. Leviticus 16:6
    Then he selects one of the two goats by lots; one will be killed for God, the other will be the scapegoat.
    And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat. Leviticus 16:7-8
    The priest kills the goat on which the Lord's lot fell and offers him for a sin offering.
    And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Lord's lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering. Leviticus 16:9
    The other goat, the one on which the Lord's lot didn't fall, is the scapegoat. It is presented alive to the Lord to make an atonement by releasing it into the wilderness.
    But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness. Leviticus 16:10
    After releasing the scapegoat, the priest will kill the bullock that he brought for himself as a sin offering.
    And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself: Leviticus 16:9
    Then he'll burn some sweet incense over the mercy set. If he does it right, God won't kill him. (Like he did Aaron's sons.)
    And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail: And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the Lord, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not: Leviticus 16:12-13
    The priest will take some of the bullock's blood and sprinkle it eastward with his finger seven times upon the mercy seat.
    And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times. Leviticus 16:14
    Then he'll kill the goat for a sin offering and sprinkle the blood on the mercy seat like he did with the bullock's blood.
    Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat. Leviticus 16:15
    By killing the bullock and goat and sprinkling and wiping their blood in this carefully prescribed way, God will forgive all the sins and uncleanness of his people.
    And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness. And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel. And he shall go out unto the altar that is before the Lord, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood of the bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about. And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel. Leviticus 16:16-19
    But now back to the live goat -- the scapegoat. The priest lays his hand on the scapegoat's head and confesses all of the peoples' sins (must take a while), putting them all on the head of the goat. The he sends the goat away into the wilderness.
    And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat: And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness: And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness. Leviticus 16:20-22
    After releasing the scapegoat, the priest takes off his sacred garments, takes a bath in the holy place, puts on his street clothes, and offers the burnt offerings, both for him and the people.
    And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there: And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt offering, and the burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself, and for the people. Leviticus 16:23-24
    Then the priest burns the fat of the sin offering on the altar, and the person that released the scapegoat must wash his clothes, take a bath, and come into the camp.
    And the fat of the sin offering shall he burn upon the altar. And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp. Leviticus 16:25-26
    Then the skins, flesh, and dung of the bullock and goat are burned. And the person who burns them must wash his clothes, take a bath, and come into the camp.
    And the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung. And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp. Leviticus 16:27-28
    This whole Yom Kippur procedure is a statute forever. It shall be performed on the tenth day of the month of the seventh month of the year. You shall do no work and be afflicted (usually understood to mean: no eating, drinking, sex, or baseball on Yom Kippur).
    And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you: For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the Lord. It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever. ... And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year. Leviticus 16:29-34

    Burnt Offerings

  109. Sacrifice an unblemished young bull as a burnt offering.
  110. If you own a heard of cattle, select an unblemished young male from your herd. Make sure you are making this offering out of your own free will.
    If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock. If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD. Leviticus 1:2-3
    Bring the animal to the door of the tabernacle and kill it in front of God.

    And the sons of Aaron the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire: And the priests, Aaron's sons, shall lay the parts, the head, and the fat, in order upon the wood that is on the fire which is upon the altar. 1:7-8
    The internal organs and legs will also be burned after they are washed in water. This will make a nice smell for God.
    But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water: and the priest shall burn all on the altar, to be a burnt sacrifice, an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD. 1:9

    And will make an offering by fire unto the Lord, a burnt offering, or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill offering, or in your solemn feasts, to make a sweet savour unto the Lord, of the herd or of the flock: Then shall he that offereth his offering unto the Lord bring a meat offering of a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of oil. And the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering shalt thou prepare with the burnt offering or sacrifice, for one lamb. Numbers 15:3-5

  113. Sacrifice a dove or pigeon as a burnt offering.
  114. If you sacrifice a bird instead of a bull, sheep, or goat, use a dove or a pigeon.
    And if the burnt sacrifice for his offering to the LORD be of fowls, then he shall bring his offering of turtledoves, or of young pigeons. Leviticus 1:14

    Meat Offerings

  117. Make a meat offering to the Lord.
  118. When you make a meat sacrifice, use the best flour and oil you can find. Pour some oil and frankincense on your meat offering and bring it to the priests (Aaron's sons and their descendants). The priests will then burn a handful of the flour, oil, and frankincesne on the altar. This will smell good to God. The remainder of the meat offering belongs to the priests. It is a most holy offering made by fire.
    And when any will offer a meat offering unto the LORD, his offering shall be of fine flour; and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon: And he shall bring it to Aaron's sons the priests: and he shall take thereout his handful of the flour thereof, and of the oil thereof, with all the frankincense thereof; and the priest shall burn the memorial of it upon the altar, to be an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD: And the remnant of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire. Leviticus 2:1-3
    If your meat offering is baked in the oven, be sure to use only unleavened cakes of the finest flour mixed with oil. If your sacrifice is a meat offering that is cooked in a frying pan, use only the best flour and oil. Bring your offering to the Lord, and then to a priest who will burn it on the altar. It is an offering made by fire and will smell good to God. The remainder of the offering belongs to the priests. It is a most holy thing.
    And if thou bring an oblation of a meat offering baken in the oven, it shall be unleavened cakes of fine flour mingled with oil, or unleavened wafers anointed with oil. And if thy oblation be a meat offering baken in a pan, it shall be of fine flour unleavened, mingled with oil. Thou shalt part it in pieces, and pour oil thereon: it is a meat offering. And if thy oblation be a meat offering baken in the fryingpan, it shall be made of fine flour with oil. And thou shalt bring the meat offering that is made of these things unto the LORD: and when it is presented unto the priest, he shall bring it unto the altar. And the priest shall take from the meat offering a memorial thereof, and shall burn it upon the altar: it is an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD. And that which is left of the meat offering shall be Aaron's and his sons': it is a thing most holy of the offerings of the LORD made by fire. 2:4-10
    More details about the meat offering are given in Leviticus 6.
    And this is the law of the meat offering: the sons of Aaron shall offer it before the LORD, before the altar. And he shall take of it his handful, of the flour of the meat offering, and of the oil thereof, and all the frankincense which is upon the meat offering, and shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savour, even the memorial of it, unto the LORD. And the remainder thereof shall Aaron and his sons eat: with unleavened bread shall it be eaten in the holy place; in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation they shall eat it. It shall not be baken with leaven. I have given it unto them for their portion of my offerings made by fire; it is most holy, as is the sin offering, and as the trespass offering. All the males among the children of Aaron shall eat of it. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations concerning the offerings of the LORD made by fire: every one that toucheth them shall be holy. Leviticus 6:14-18

    And in Numbers 15.

    Then shall he that offereth his offering unto the LORD bring a meat offering of a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of oil. ...

    And if his offering for a sacrifice of peace offering unto the LORD be of the flock; male or female, he shall offer it without blemish. If he offer a lamb for his offering, then shall he offer it before the LORD. Leviticus 3:6-7
    Hold on to the lamb's head and kill it in front of the tabernacle.

    And he shall lay his hand upon the head of it, and kill it before the tabernacle of the congregation. Leviticus 3:13
    The priests (Aaron's sons) will sprinkle the goat's blood round about upon the altar.
    The sons of Aaron shall sprinkle the blood thereof upon the altar round about. Leviticus 3:13
    The priest will then burn the dead goat's body and throw away the fat, kidneys, and the caul above the liver for a food offering to God.
    And he shall offer thereof his offering, even an offering made by fire unto the LORD; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards, And the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away. And the priest shall burn them upon the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire for a sweet savour. Leviticus 3:14-16

  135. When making your peace offerings remember this: All the fat is the Lord's!
  136. All the fat is the LORD's. It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood. Leviticus 3:16-17

  137. The law of the peace offering
  138. And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he shall offer unto the Lord. If he offer it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour, fried. Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings. And of it he shall offer one out of the whole oblation for an heave offering unto the Lord, and it shall be the priest's that sprinkleth the blood of the peace offerings. Leviticus 7:11-14

    If any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eateth of it shall bear his iniquity. Leviticus 7:18

    If it be eaten at all on the third day, it is abominable; it shall not be accepted. Therefore every one that eateth it shall bear his iniquity, because he hath profaned the hallowed thing of the LORD. Leviticus 19:7-8

    Trespass Offerings

  159. If you commit any of these four sins, then you must confess that you have sinned and kill a female lamb or young goat as a trespass offering.
  160. The four sins are these:
    1. Refusing to testify about something you have seen or heard.
    2. Uknowingly touching an unclean thing (like a dead animal or a creeping thing).
    3. Unknowingly touching the uncleanness of man.
    4. Unknowingly promising to do something evil or good (and then finding out about it.)
    And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity. Or if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether it be a carcase of an unclean beast, or a carcase of unclean cattle, or the carcase of unclean creeping things, and if it be hidden from him; he also shall be unclean, and guilty. Or if he touch the uncleanness of man, whatsoever uncleanness it be that a man shall be defiled withal, and it be hid from him; when he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty. Or if a soul swear, pronouncing with his lips to do evil, or to do good, whatsoever it be that a man shall pronounce with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty in one of these.

    And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these things, that he shall confess that he hath sinned in that thing: And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD for his sin which he hath sinned, a female from the flock, a lamb or a kid of the goats, for a sin offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his sin. Leviticus 5:1-6

    Maimonides
    P72: The offering of a higher or lower value - Lev 5:1-11

  161. If you can't afford a lamb, kill two doves or pigeons instead; one as a sin offering and one as a burnt offering.
  162. Here are the detailed in instructions: Bring one of the birds to the priest as a sin offering. The priest will wring off its head from its neck without cutting it into pieces. He will then sprinkle blood on the side of the altar and wring out the rest of the blood at the bottom of the altar. The second bird will be a burnt offering. After these birds are killed in this way, God will forgive you for your sin.
    And if he be not able to bring a lamb, then he shall bring for his trespass, which he hath committed, two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, unto the LORD; one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering. And he shall bring them unto the priest, who shall offer that which is for the sin offering first, and wring off his head from his neck, but shall not divide it asunder: And he shall sprinkle of the blood of the sin offering upon the side of the altar; and the rest of the blood shall be wrung out at the bottom of the altar: it is a sin offering. And he shall offer the second for a burnt offering, according to the manner: and the priest shall make an atonement for him for his sin which he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him. Leviticus 5:7-10
    Maimonides
    N112: Don't sever the head of the bird of sin ­offering during melikah (pinching the bird's head) - Lev 5:8

  163. If you can't afford birds, burn one tenth of an ephah of your best flour.
  164. Since this is a sin offering, don't put any oil or frankincense on it. Take your flour to the priest who will take a handful of it and burn it on the altar. God will forgive you for your sin, and the priest gets whatever flour is leftover as a meat offering.
    But if he be not able to bring two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a sin offering; he shall put no oil upon it, neither shall he put any frankincense thereon: for it is a sin offering. Then shall he bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take his handful of it, even a memorial thereof, and burn it on the altar, according to the offerings made by fire unto the LORD: it is a sin offering. And the priest shall make an atonement for him as touching his sin that he hath sinned in one of these, and it shall be forgiven him: and the remnant shall be the priest's, as a meat offering. Leviticus 5:11-13
    Maimonides
    N102: Don't put olive oil on the meal ­offering of a sinner - Lev 5:11
    N103: Don't put frankincense the meal ­offering of a sinner - Lev 5:11
    Punishment: Whipping

  165. If you sin against your neighbor by lying, stealing, or violence, kill an unblemished ram as a trespass offering.
  166. [After making restitution (+20%) to your neighbor.]
    If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the Lord, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour; Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein: Then it shall be, because he hath sinned ... he shall bring his trespass offering unto the Lord, a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest: And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the Lord: and it shall be forgiven him for any thing of all that he hath done in trespassing therein. Leviticus 6:2-7

  167. The law of the most holy trespass offering
  168. Kill the trespass offering in the same place that you killed your burnt offerings. Sprinkle the blood round about the altar, and burn on the altar the fat, rump, the fat that covers the internal organs, the kidneys with the fat that is on them, and the lower part of the liver. This is the most holy trespass offering.
    This is the law of the trespass offering: it is most holy. In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle round about upon the altar. And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and the fat that covereth the inwards, And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the caul that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away: And the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a trespass offering. Leviticus 7:1-5

    All the priests shall eat the trespass offering in the holy place after cooking it in the oven and/or frying pan. It is most holy. The priests also get to keep the skin of the trespass offering. They are to share the skin and the meat equally among themselves.

    Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten in the holy place: it is most holy. As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is one law for them: the priest that maketh atonement therewith shall have it. And the priest that offereth any man's burnt offering, even the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he hath offered. And all the meat offering that is baken in the oven, and all that is dressed in the fryingpan, and in the pan, shall be the priest's that offereth it. And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall all the sons of Aaron have, one as much as another. Leviticus 7:6-10
    Maimonides
    P65: The guilt offering - Lev 7:1

    Heave Offerings

  169. Make a heave offering.
  170. Save the right shoulder of your peace offering for a heave offering. This is performed by holding the right shoulder above your head while moving it rapidly up and down. When you're finished with that, the priest will burn the fat and eat the rest.
    And the right shoulder shall ye give unto the priest for an heave offering of the sacrifices of your peace offerings. He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood of the peace offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part. ... The heave shoulder have I taken of the children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons by a statute for ever from among the children of Israel. This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in the day when he presented them to minister unto the LORD in the priest's office. Leviticus 7:32-34

  171. When you eat the bread of the land, include a cake of your first dough for a heave offering.
  172. When ye eat of the bread of the land, ye shall offer up an heave offering unto the LORD. Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for an heave offering: as ye do the heave offering of the threshingfloor, so shall ye heave it. Of the first of your dough ye shall give unto the LORD an heave offering in your generations. Numbers 15:19-21
    Maimonides
    P133: The dough offering - Num 15:20

    Wave Offerings

  173. Make a wave offering.
  174. When you make your peace offering, wave the breast for a wave offering by holding the breast above your head waving it from side to side. After your done with that, the priest will burn the fat and eat the rest.
    Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, He that offereth the sacrifice of his peace offerings unto the LORD shall bring his oblation unto the LORD of the sacrifice of his peace offerings. His own hands shall bring the offerings of the LORD made by fire, the fat with the breast, it shall he bring, that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before the LORD. ... For the wave breast ... have I taken of the children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons by a statute for ever from among the children of Israel. This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in the day when he presented them to minister unto the LORD in the priest's office. Leviticus 7:29-34

  175. Offer the first fruits of your harvest to God as a wave offering, with an unblemished one-year old lamb as a burnt offering. Include a meat offering and a liter of wine.
  176. Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest: And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it. Ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the LORD. And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the LORD for a sweet savour : and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin. Leviticus 23:10-13
    Maimonides
    P44: The meal offering of new barley - Lev 23:10

    Sacrifices for people who sin through ignorance

  177. If a priest sins through ignorance, he must kill an unblemished bullock (or an unblemished ram).
  178. If a priest sins through ignorance, kill an unblemished bullock before the Lord.
    If a soul shall sin through ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which ought not to be done, and shall do against any of them: If the priest that is anointed do sin according to the sin of the people; then let him bring for his sin, which he hath sinned, a young bullock without blemish unto the LORD for a sin offering. And he shall bring the bullock unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD; and shall lay his hand upon the bullock's head, and kill the bullock before the LORD. Leviticus 4:2-4
    The priest will take the bullock's blood and bring it to the tabernacle. He will then dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle the blood seven times before the Lord. Next, he'll wipe some of the blood on the horns of the altar and pour the rest of the blood at the bottom of the altar.
    And the priest that is anointed shall take of the bullock's blood, and bring it to the tabernacle of the congregation: And the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle of the blood seven times before the LORD, before the vail of the sanctuary. And the priest shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar of sweet incense before the LORD, which is in the tabernacle of the congregation; and shall pour all the blood of the bullock at the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 4:5-7
    He will then burn on the altar all of the bullock's fat, the fat that covers the internal organs, the fat that is on the kidneys, the kidneys, and lower part of the liver, just like he does for peace offerings. The skin, flesh, head, legs, internal organs, and dung shall be burned away from the tabernacle in the place where the ashes are poured out.
    And he shall take off from it all the fat of the bullock for the sin offering; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards, And the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the flanks, and the caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away, As it was taken off from the bullock of the sacrifice of peace offerings: and the priest shall burn them upon the altar of the burnt offering. And the skin of the bullock, and all his flesh, with his head, and with his legs, and his inwards, and his dung, Even the whole bullock shall he carry forth without the camp unto a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn him on the wood with fire: where the ashes are poured out shall he be burnt. 4:8-12

  179. If the congregation sins through ignorance, kill a bullock (blemished or unblemished).
  180. If the whole congregation sins through ignorance, the congregation shall bring a young bull (blemished or unblemished) to the Lord for a sin offering. The elders shall then put their hands on the bullock's head and kill it in front of God.
    And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty; When the sin, which they have sinned against it, is known, then the congregation shall offer a young bullock for the sin, and bring him before the tabernacle of the congregation. And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands upon the head of the bullock before the LORD: and the bullock shall be killed before the LORD. Leviticus 4:13-15
    The priest will take the bullock's blood and bring it to the tabernacle. Then he will dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle the blood seven times before the Lord. Next, he'll wipe some of the blood on the horns of the altar and pour the rest of the blood at the bottom of the altar.
    And the priest that is anointed shall bring of the bullock's blood to the tabernacle of the congregation: And the priest shall dip his finger in some of the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the LORD, even before the vail. And he shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar which is before the LORD, that is in the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall pour out all the blood at the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 4:16-18
    He will then burn all of the bullock's fat on the altar. The rest of the procedure is just like it was for a sin offering. Be sure to burn whatever remains of the bullock like you did in the procedure for an individual who sinned through ignorance. If this procedure is followed correctly, God will forgive the entire congregation for sinning through ignorance.
    And he shall take all his fat from him, and burn it upon the altar. And he shall do with the bullock as he did with the bullock for a sin offering, so shall he do with this: and the priest shall make an atonement for them, and it shall be forgiven them. And he shall carry forth the bullock without the camp, and burn him as he burned the first bullock: it is a sin offering for the congregation. 4:19-21

    Numbers 15 has a slightly different procedure for a congregation that sins through ignorance. It too calls for the sacrifice of a young bullock, but it also requires a meat offering, drink offering, and the killing of a young goat for a sin offering. (See What should a congregation do if it sins through ignorance?)

    Then it shall be, if ought be committed by ignorance without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bullock for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour unto the LORD, with his meat offering, and his drink offering, according to the manner, and one kid of the goats for a sin offering. And the priest shall make an atonement for all the congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them; for it is ignorance: and they shall bring their offering, a sacrifice made by fire unto the LORD, and their sin offering before the LORD, for their ignorance: And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the children of Israel, and the stranger that sojourneth among them; seeing all the people were in ignorance. Numbers 15:24-26
    Maimonides
    P68: The offering of a court that has erred - Lev 4:13

  181. If a ruler sins through ignorance, kill a young unblemished male goat.
  182. If a ruler sins through ignorance, he shall bring a young, male, unblemished goat. He shall put his hand on the goat's head and kill it in the place where they kill burnt offerings before the Lord.

    When a ruler hath sinned, and done somewhat through ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD his God concerning things which should not be done, and is guilty; Or if his sin, wherein he hath sinned, come to his knowledge; he shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a male without blemish: And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and kill it in the place where they kill the burnt offering before the LORD: it is a sin offering. Leviticus 4:22-24
    The priest will then dip his finger in the blood, wipe it on the horns of the altar, and pour the remaining blood at the foot of the altar. The rest of the procedure is just like it was for a peace offering. If this procedure is followed correctly, God will forgive the ruler for sinning through ignorance.
    And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour out his blood at the bottom of the altar of burnt offering. And he shall burn all his fat upon the altar, as the fat of the sacrifice of peace offerings: and the priest shall make an atonement for him as concerning his sin, and it shall be forgiven him. Leviticus 4:25-26

  183. If an ordinary person sins through ignorance, kill a young unblemished female sheep or goat.
  184. If an ordinary person sins through ignorance, he shall bring a young unblemished female goat, and he shall put his hand on the goat's head and kill it in the place where they kill burnt offerings before the Lord.
    And if any one of the common people sin through ignorance, while he doeth somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which ought not to be done, and be guilty; Or if his sin, which he hath sinned, come to his knowledge: then he shall bring his offering, a kid of the goats, a female without blemish, for his sin which he hath sinned. And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin offering, and Slay the sin offering in the place of the burnt offering. Leviticus 4:27-29
    The priest will take some of the goat's blood and wipe it on the horns of the altar and pour the rest of the blood at the bottom of the altar. He will then burn all of the goat's fat on the altar, like he does for peace offerings. This will smell good to God and God will forgive the ordinary person for sinning through ignorance.
    And the priest shall take of the blood thereof with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the altar. And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat is taken away from off the sacrifice of peace offerings; and the priest shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savour unto the LORD; and the priest shall make an atonement for him, and it shall be forgiven him. Leviticus 4:30-31
    If a lamb is selected, the person who sinned through ignorance shall put his hands on the lamb's head and kill it in the place where they kill burnt offerings before the Lord. The priest will take the lamb's blood and bring it to the tabernacle. Then the priest will then wipe some of the blood on the horns of the altar and pour the rest of the blood at the bottom of the altar. He will then burn all of the lamb's fat on the altar, like he does for peace offerings. This will smell good to God and God will forgive the ordinary person for sinning through ignorance.
    If he bring a lamb for a sin offering, he shall bring it a female without blemish. And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin offering, and slay it for a sin offering in the place where they kill the burnt offering. And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and shall pour out all the blood thereof at the bottom of the altar: And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat of the lamb is taken away from the sacrifice of the peace offerings; and the priest shall burn them upon the altar, according to the offerings made by fire unto the LORD: and the priest shall make an atonement for his sin that he hath committed, and it shall be forgiven him. Leviticus 4:32-35
    A similar, but slightly different, procedure is given in Numbers 15. Here the ignorant sinner must kill a young female goat, but (unlike in Leviticus 4) it doesn't need to be unblemished. Also, Numbers doesn't provide the option of killing a female sheep. This procedure, by the way, applies to everyone who sins through ignorance, whether they are an Israelite or a stranger. (See What should you do if you sin through ignorance?)
    And if any soul sin through ignorance, then he shall bring a she goat of the first year for a sin offering. And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the LORD, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him. Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them. Numbers 15:27-29
    Maimonides
    P69: Tha fixed sin offering - Lev 4:27-35

  185. If you unknowingly defile some holy things, kill an unblemished ram or pay the priests whatever such a ram is worth. In addition you must pay the priests a 20% fine.
  186. If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, in the holy things of the LORD; then he shall bring for his trespass unto the LORD a ram without blemish out of the flocks, with thy estimation by shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering. And he shall make amends for the harm that he hath done in the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it unto the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him. Leviticus 5:15-16
    Maimonides
    P71: The unconditional guilt offering - Lev 5:15-16

  187. If you sin without knowing it, you are still guilty. Kill an unblemished ram for a trespass offering.
  188. And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the Lord; though he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity. And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his ignorance wherein he erred and wist it not, and it shall be forgiven him. It is a trespass offering: he hath certainly trespassed against the Lord. Leviticus 5:17-19

And he shall bring them on the eighth day for his cleansing unto the priest, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, before the LORD. And the priest shall take the lamb of the trespass offering, and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD: And he shall kill the lamb of the trespass offering, and the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot: And the priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his own left hand: And the priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil that is in his left hand seven times before the LORD: And the priest shall put of the oil that is in his hand upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the place of the blood of the trespass offering: And the rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall put upon the head of him that is to be cleansed, to make an atonement for him before the LORD. And he shall offer the one of the turtledoves, or of the young pigeons, such as he can get; Even such as he is able to get, the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering, with the meat offering: and the priest shall make an atonement for him that is to be cleansed before the LORD.
