Of holocausts or burnt offerings.

[1] And the Lord called Moses, and spoke to him from the tabernacle of the testimony, saying:
Vocavit autem Moysen, et locutus est ei Dominus de tabernaculo testimonii, dicens :

[2] Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them: The man among you that shall offer to the Lord a sacrifice of the cattle, that is, offering victims of oxen and sheep,
Loquere filiis Israel, et dices ad eos : Homo, qui obtulerit ex vobis hostiam Domino de pecoribus, id est, de bobus et ovibus offerens victimas,

[3] If his offering be a holocaust, and of the herd, he shall offer a male without blemish, at the door of the testimony, to make the Lord favourable to him:
si holocaustum fuerit ejus oblatio, ac de armento : masculum immaculatum offeret ad ostium tabernaculi testimonii, ad placandum sibi Dominum :

[4] And he shall put his hand upon the head of the victim, and it shall be acceptable, and help to its expiation.
ponetque manum super caput hostiae, et acceptabilis erit, atque in expiationem ejus proficiens.

[5] And he shall immolate the calf before the Lord, and the priests the sons of Aaron shall offer the blood thereof, pouring it round about the altar, which is before the door of the tabernacle.
Immolabitque vitulum coram Domino, et offerent filii Aaron sacerdotes sanguinem ejus, fundentes per altaris circuitum, quod est ante ostium tabernaculi :

[6] And when they have flayed the victim, they shall cut the joints into pieces,
detractaque pelle hostiae, artus in frusta concident.

[7] And shall put fire on the altar, having before laid in order a pile of wood:
Et subjicient in altari ignem, strue lignorum ante composita :

[8] And they shall lay the parts that are cut out in order thereupon, to wit, the head, and all things that cleave to the liver,
et membra quae sunt caesa, desuper ordinantes, caput videlicet, et cuncta quae adhaerent jecori,

[9] The entrails and feet being washed with water: and the priest shall burn them upon the altar for a holocaust, and a sweet savour to the Lord.
intestinis et pedibus lotis aqua : adolebitque ea sacerdos super altare in holocaustum et suavem odorem Domino.

[10] And if the offering be of the flocks, a holocaust of sheep or of goats, he shall offer a male without blemish:
Quod si de pecoribus oblatio est, de ovibus sive de capris holocaustum, masculum absque macula offeret :

[11] And he shall immolate it at the side of the altar that looketh to the north, before the Lord: but the sons of Aaron shall pour the blood thereof upon the altar round about:
immolabitque ad latus altaris, quod respicit ad aquilonem, coram Domino : sanguinem vero illius fundent super altare filii Aaron per circuitum :

[12] And they shall divide the joints, the head, and all that cleave to the liver: and shall lay them upon the wood, under which the fire is to be put:
dividentque membra, caput, et omnia quae adhaerent jecori, et ponent super ligna, quibus subjiciendus est ignis :

[13] But the entrails and the feet they shall wash with water. And the priest shall offer it all and burn it all upon the altar for a holocaust, and most sweet savour to the Lord.
intestina vero et pedes lavabunt aqua. Et oblata omnia adolebit sacerdos super altare in holocaustum et odorem suavissimum Domino.

[14] But if the oblation of a holocaust to the Lord be of birds, of turtles, or of young pigeons,
Si autem de avibus, holocausti oblatio fuerit Domino, de turturibus, aut pullis columbae,

[15] The priest shall offer it at the altar: and twisting back the neck, and breaking the place of the wound, he shall make the blood run down upon the brim of the altar.
offeret eam sacerdos ad altare : et retorto ad collum capite, ac rupto vulneris loco, decurrere faciet sanguinem super crepidinem altaris :

[16] But the crop of the throat, and the feathers he shall cast beside the altar at the east side, in the place where the ashes are wont to be poured out,
vesiculam vero gutturis, et plumas projiciet prope altare ad orientalem plagam, in loco in quo cineres effundi solent,

[17] And he shall break the pinions thereof, and shall not cut, nor divide it with a knife, and shall burn it upon the altar, putting fire under the wood. It is a holocaust and oblation of most sweet savour to the Lord.
confringetque ascellas ejus, et non secabit, neque ferro dividet eam, et adolebit super altare, lignis igne supposito. Holocaustum est et oblatio suavissimi odoris Domino.
