VAYIKRA

LEVITICUS 1 (ONKELOS) — 1 And the Lord called unto Mosheh, and the Lord spake with him from the tabernacle of ordinance, saying: 2 Speak with the sons of Israel, and say to them: When, one of you will bring an offering before the Lord of the cattle, of oxen or of sheep, you shall offer your oblations. 3 If his oblation be a burnt offering of the oxen, (it shall be) a male, unblemished; he shall offer him at the door of the tabernacle of ordinance; he shall offer him for acceptance before the Lord. 4 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the burnt offering, that it may be acceptable for him to propitiate on his behalf. 5 And he shall sacrifice the young bullock before the Lord; and the sons of Aharon the priest shall bring the blood, and sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar which is at the door of the tabernacle of ordinance. 6 And he shall take away (the skin) of the burnt offering, and divide it, by its members. 7 And the sons of Aharon the priest shall put fire upon the altar, and lay the wood in order upon the fire. 8 And the priests, the sons of Aharon, shall arrange the limbs and the head and the fat on the wood upon the fire which is on the altar. 9 But his inwards and his legs he shall wash with water; and the priest shall burn the whole upon the altar an entire burnt offering, an oblation to be received with acceptance before the Lord.

10 And if his oblation be from the flock, of the sheep or the young of the goats for a burnt offering, he shall bring a perfect male. 11 And he shall sacrifice him at the north side of the altar before the Lord; and the priests the sons of Aharon shall sprinkle his blood round about upon the altar. 12 And he shall divide him by his members, and his head and his feet; and the priest shall lay them upon the wood which is on the fire upon the altar. 13 But the inwards and the legs he shall wash with water, and the priest shall bring the whole and burn (it) upon the altar: it is a whole burnt offering, an oblation to be received with acceptance before the Lord.

14 But if the burnt offering of his oblation before the Lord be from fowl, he shall bring his oblation from the turtles or the young of a pigeon. 15 And the priest shall offer it upon the altar, and wring off its head, and burn upon the altar, and pour its blood by the side of the altar: 16 and he shall remove its crop with its food, and throw it on the east side of the altar, at the place where they empty the ashes. 17 And he shall cleave it through its wings, (but) divide (it) not; and the priest shall burn it at the altar upon the wood that is on the fire: it is a burnt offering, an oblation that shall be received with acceptance before the Lord.

LEVITICUS 2 (ONKELOS) — 1 But if a man bring an oblation of a mincha(1) before the Lord, his oblation shall be of meal, and he shall pour oil upon it, and put frankincense thereon, 2 and bring it to the priests the sons of Aharon; and the priest shall take from it his handful of the meal with its oil, and all its frankincense, and burn the memorial of it at the altar; an oblation to be received with favour before the Lord. 3 And that which remaineth of the mincha shall be Aharon’s and his sons’; it is most holy among the oblations of the Lord. 4 And when thou bringest the oblation of a mincha baked in the oven, it shall be of meal cake unleavened, mingled with oil, with unleavened wafers anointed with oil. 5 And if the mincha be (prepared) in a pan, thy oblation shall be of meal mingled with oil; unleavened shall it be. 6 And thou shalt break it in pieces, and pour oil thereon; it is a mincha. 7 But if thy oblation be a mincha from the gridiron, thou shalt make it of meal with oil. 8 And the mincha which is made of these thou shalt bring before the Lord, and present it to the priest, and he will offer it at the altar. 9 And the priest shall separate its memorial from the mincha, and burn upon the altar an oblation to be received with favour before the Lord. 10 And that which remaineth of the mincha shall be Aharon’s and his sons’: it is most holy among the oblations of the Lord. 11 No mincha which you offer before the Lord may be made with leaven; for no leaven or honey shall you burn with any oblation before the Lord. 12 In the oblation of first fruits you may offer them before the Lord, but not burn them at the altar, that they may be accepted with favour. 13 And every offering of thy mincha thou shalt salt with salt; and thou mayest not withhold the salt of the covenant of thy God from upon thy mincha; upon every oblation thou shalt offer salt. 14 And when thou offerest the mincha of first fruits before the Lord, green ears(2) dried with fire, broken and soft, shalt thou offer as the mincha of thy first fruits. 15 And thou shalt put oil on it, and lay frankincense thereon: it is a mincha; 16 and the priest shall burn its memorial of its broken grain and of its oil with all the frankincense, an oblation before the Lord.

LEVITICUS 3 (ONKELOS) — 1 And if his oblation be a victim of the sanctified things;(3) if from oxen, whether male or female, he shall offer it perfect before the Lord. 2 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of his oblation at the door of the tabernacle of ordinance; and the priests the sons of Aharon shall sprinkle the blood round about upon the altar. 3 And of the oblation of the sacred victim the fat that covereth the inwards, even all the fat that is upon the inwards, 4 and the two kidneys and the fat which is upon them on the sides, and the caul that is upon the liver with the kidneys, he shall remove. 5 And the sons of Aharon shall burn it at the altar, with the burnt offering which is on the wood upon the fire, an oblation(4) to be received with grace before the Lord. 6 But if his oblation of a consecrated victim before the Lord be from the flock, whether male or female, he shall offer it perfect. 7 If his oblation be a lamb, he shall present it before the Lord, 8 and lay his hand upon the head of his oblation, and slay it before the tabernacle of ordinance; and the sons of Aharon shall sprinkle its blood upon the altar round about. 9 And of his oblation of the consecrated victim before the Lord, its fat, the entire tail close by the backbone, he shall remove; the fat which covereth the inwards, 10 even all the fat which is upon the inwards, and the two kidneys and the fat which is upon them upon the sides, aud the caul that is over the liver, with the kidneys, he shall take away; 11 and the priest shall burn it at the altar; it is the meat (lechem, bread) of an oblation before the Lord.

12 But if his oblation be from the young goats, he shall present it before the Lord, 13 and lay his hand upon its head, and slay it before the tabernacle of ordinance; and the sons of Aharon shall sprinkle its blood upon the altar round about. 14 And of his oblation he shall offer as an oblation before the Lord the fat which covereth the inwards, 15 and all the fat which is upon the inwards, and the two kidneys, and the fat which is upon them on the sides; but the caul that is over the liver with the kidneys he shall take away. 16 And the priest shall burn them at the altar: it is the meat of an oblation to be received with acceptance; all the fat (shall be offered) before the Lord. 17 It is an everlasting statute unto your generations, and in all your dwellings, that neither the fat nor the blood shall be eaten.

LEVITICUS 4 (ONKELOS) — 1 And the Lord spake with Mosheh, saying: 2 Speak with the sons of Israel, saying: When a man sinneth through ignorance of any of the precepts of the Lord, as to that which should not be done, and acteth contrary to one of them: 3 if the high priest sin after the manner of the people’s sin, let him bring before the Lord for the sin that he hath sinned a young bullock without blemish for his sin. 4 And he shall bring the bullock to the door of the tabernacle of ordinance before the Lord, and lay his hand upon the bullock’s head, and slay the bullock before the Lord. 5 And the high priest shall take of the blood of the bullock and carry it into the tabernacle of ordinance. 6 And the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle (some) of the blood seven times in the presence of the Lord before the veil of the sanctuary. 7 And the priest shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar of sweet incense before the Lord in the tabernacle of ordinance, and all the (remaining) blood of the bullock he shall pour out at the foundation of the altar of burnt sacrifice which is at the door of the tabernacle of ordinance. 8 And all the fat of the bullock of the sin offering he shall separate from it; the fat which covereth the inwards, 9 and all the fat which is upon the inwards, and the, two kidneys, and the fat which is upon them that is by the flanks; and the caul that is upon the liver, together with the kidneys, he shall remove, 10 as it was separated from the bullock of the consecrated victims, and the priest shall offer it upon the altar of burnt sacrifice. 11 But the skin of the bullock and all his flesh, with his head, and with his legs, and his inwards, and his food, 12 he shall carry forth,(5) even the whole bullock, without the camp unto a clean place, to a place for the pouring out of ashes, and burn him upon wood in the fire; at the place for the pouring out of ashes shall he be burned.

13 And if the whole congregation (kenishta) of Israel shall mistake, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly (kehala), and they shall have done (somewhat against) one of all the commandments of the Lord which it is not right to do, and have become guilty; 14 when the sin that they have sinned is known, the assembly shall offer a young bullock for a sin offering, and bring him before the tabernacle of ordinance. 15 And the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands upon the head of the bullock in the presence of the Lord, and kill the bullock before the Lord. 16 And the high priest shall bring of the blood of the bullock into the tabernacle of ordinance; 17 and the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle seven times in the presence of the Lord before the veil. 18 And some of the blood he shall put upon the horns of the altar that is before the Lord in the tabernacle of ordinance, and all (the rest of the) blood he shall pour out at the foundation of the altar of burnt sacrifice which is at the door of the tabernacle of ordinance. 19 And all the fat he shall separate from him, and sacrifice at the altar. 20 And he shall do with the bullock as he did with the bullock of the sin offering, so shall he do with him; and the priest shall atone for them, and it shall be forgiven them. 21 And he shall carry forth(6) the bullock without the camp, and burn him as he burned the former bullock: it is a sin offering for the congregation.

22 Should a ruler sin and do (contrary to) any of the commandments of the Lord his God what is not right to do, through ignorance, and be guilty; 23 when his sin becomes known to him in what he hath transgressed, he shall bring his oblation, a kid of the goats, a male, unblemished; 24 and he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and kill him at the place where the burnt sacrifice is slain before the Lord; it is a sin offering. 25 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 sacrifice, and pour out the blood at the foundation of the altar of burnt sacrifice. 26 And he shall burn all the fat at the altar, as the fat of the sanctified oblation (is burned); and the priest shall atone on his behalf for his sin, and it shall be forgiven him.

27 And if one of the people of the land inadvertently sin in doing contrary to any of the commandments of the Lord what is not right to do, and become guilty; 28 when his sin is known to him, in what he hath sinned, he shall bring his oblation, a female kid of the goats, unblemished, for the sin that he hath sinned. 29 And he shall lay his hand on the head of the sin offering, and kill the sin offering at the place of burnt sacrifice; 30 and the priest shall take of the blood with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt offering, and pour out all the blood at the foundation of the altar. 31 And he shall remove all the fat, as he took away the fat from the consecrated offerings, and the priest shall burn it at the altar, to be received with acceptance before the Lord; and the priest shall atone for him, and it shall be forgiven him. 32 But if he present a lamb for his sin offering, he shall bring a female unblemished, 33 and lay his hand upon the head of the sin offering, and kill the sin offering at the place where the burnt sacrifice is killed. 34 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 sacrifice, and pour out all the blood at the foundation of the altar. 35 And he shall remove all the fat, as he removed the fat of the lamb of the sanctified oblations, and the priest shall burn it at the altar with the oblations of the Lord; and the priest shall atone for him, for the sin that he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.

LEVITICUS 5 (ONKELOS) — 1 And if a man sin, and (one) hear the voice (which demands) swearing that he is a witness, or that he hath seen or known, if he will not show it, he shall bear his sin. 2 Or if a man shall have touched anything unclean, whether the carcase of an unclean beast, or the carcase of unclean cattle, or the carcase of an unclean reptile, and it be hidden from him, he shall be defiled and guilty. 3 Or if he shall touch the uncleanness of a man, any uncleanness which defileth him, and it be hidden from him; but (afterwards) becometh aware of it and is guilty;—4 or if a man swear, declaring with his lips, for evil or for good, according to whatever the man shall declare by oath, and (the truth) be hidden from him, and he (afterwards) have knowledge thereof, he is guilty of one of these. 5 And it shall be that when (he knoweth that) he is guilty in one of these (things) he shall confess that he hath sinned thereby; 6 and shall bring his sin offering before the Lord for the sin that he hath sinned; a she-lamb from the flock, or a kid of the goats, for a sin offering; and the priest shall atone for him and for his sin. 7 But if his hands be not sufficient to offer a lamb, let him bring for the sin that he hath sinned two turtle doves, or two young pigeons before the Lord, one for the sin offering, and one for the burnt sacrifice. 8 And he shall bring them to the priest, and he shall offer the sin offering first, and wring off its head near to the spine, but he shall not divide (the bird). 9 And he shall sprinkle the blood of the sin offering upon the side (wall) of the altar, and pour out the remainder of the blood at the base of the altar; it is a sin offering. 10 And the second he shall make a burnt sacrifice, according to the proper (rite); and the priest shall make atonement for the sin that he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him. 11 But if (neither) two turtle doves nor a pair of young pigeons pertain to him, he shall bring, as his oblation for the sin that he hath sinned, the tenth of three sein of flour for a sin offering; he shall not put oil upon it, nor put frankincense upon it, for it is a sin offering. 12 And he shall bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take a handful of it as the memorial thereof, and burn it at the altar with the oblations of the Lord: it is a sin offering. 13 And the priest shall make atonement for him, for the sin that he hath sinned in any one of these (things), and it shall be forgiven him: and to the priest it shall be, as the mincha.

14 And the Lord spake with Mosheh, saying: 15 When a man hath indeed falsified, but hath sinned inadvertently concerning things consecrated to the Lord, he shall bring for his trespass offering before the Lord a ram without blemish from the flock by its value in silver shekels, in the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering. 16 And that which he had defaulted of the holy thing he shall make good, and add a fifth thereupon, and give it to the priest; and the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.

17 And if a man sin and do against any of the commandments of the Lord that which is not right to do, and know not, and sin, he shall bear his sin. 18 But he shall bring a lamb unblemished from the flock according to the estimation for a trespass offering (or according to the estimation of the trespass) unto the priest; and the priest shall atone for his error which he hath committed unwittingly, and it shall be forgiven him. 19 It is a trespass offering for the sin that he hath sinned; he shall offer the trespass offering before the Lord.

20 And the Lord spake with Mosheh, saying: 21 If a man sin and falsify with falsehood(7)before the Lord, and deal falsely with his neighbour in a thing deposited, or in fellowship of hands, or by rapine or violence against his neighbour; 22 or if he have found that which had been lost and deny it, and swear falsely, by any one of all these which a man doeth and sinneth therein; 23 it shall be that when he hath (so) transgressed and become guilty, he shall return what he hath robbed by robbery, or taken away by violence, or the deposit which was deposited with him, or the lost thing that he had found: 24 or all that about which he had sworn falsely, he shall make it good in the capital, and add one fifth thereon; unto him to whom it belongeth shall he give it on the day of his (offering for) guilt. 25 And the trespass offering that he shall bring before the Lord (must be) a ram unblemished from the flock according to the estimation of the trespass, unto the priest. 26 And the priest shall make atonement for him before the Lord, and it shall be forgiven him for any one of all (these) in which he may have acted to be guilty thereby.(8)
