of you shall bring an offering to the LORD, ye shall bring your
offering of the cattle, [even] of the herd, and of the flock.
1:3 If his offering shall [be] a burnt-sacrifice of the herd,

own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation before the LORD.
1:4 And he shall put his hand upon the head of the
burnt-offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make
atonement for him.
1:5 And he shall kill the bullock before the LORD: and the
priests, Aaron's sons, shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the
blood around upon the altar that [is by] the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation.
1:6 And he shall flay the burnt-offering, and cut it into its

altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire.
1:8 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
