Numbers 15:1-16

Note: in the law regarding  meal and drink offerings the order of animal categories from vv 3-10  is reversed in verse 11. The following section repeats several times that there was ONE rule for both Jew and Gentile.

1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you, 3 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,

A. of the herd, or of the flock: 4 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. 5 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.

B. 6 Or for a ram, thou shalt prepare for a meat offering two tenth deals of flour mingled with the third part of an hin of oil. 7 And for a drink offering thou shalt offer the third part of an hin of wine, for a sweet savour unto the LORD.

C. 8 And when thou preparest a bullock for a burnt offering, or for a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings unto the LORD: 9 Then shall he bring with a bullock a meat offering of three tenth deals of flour mingled with half an hin of oil. 10 And thou shalt bring for a drink offering half an hin of wine, for an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.

C’. 11 Thus shall it be done for one bullock,

B’. or for one ram,

A’. or for a lamb, or a kid.

12 According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do to every one according to their number.

A. 13 All that are born of the country shall do these things after this manner, in offering an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD. 14 And if a stranger sojourn with you,  or whosoever be among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD; as ye do, so he shall do.

B. 15 One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you,

C. an ordinance for ever in your generations:

B’. as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD.

A’. 16 One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.
