Leviticus 9

Well, we are back to the sacrifices.

You might notice I don't use the word unblemished. It is a negative where the word in question, תמם complete, is a positive word. It is particularly positive in the Psalms, themselves a record of a means to human completeness. It seems the first translation into Greek used an explicitly negative form of a word. Too bad. It only takes a few hundred years to assume the negative. And miss the positive.

Leviticus 9 Fn Min Max Syll
וַיְהִי֙ בַּיּ֣וֹם הַשְּׁמִינִ֔י קָרָ֣א מֹשֶׁ֔ה לְאַהֲרֹ֖ן וּלְבָנָ֑יו
וּלְזִקְנֵ֖י יִשְׂרָאֵֽל
1 And it was on the eighth day, Moses called for Aaron and for his children,
and the elders of Israel.
3e 4B 18
6
וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֶֽל־אַהֲרֹ֗ן קַח־לְ֠ךָ עֵ֣גֶל בֶּן־בָּקָ֧ר לְחַטָּ֛את וְאַ֥יִל לְעֹלָ֖ה תְּמִימִ֑ם
וְהַקְרֵ֖ב לִפְנֵ֥י יְהוָֽה
2 And he said to Aaron, Take for yourself a calf of the herd for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, complete,
and approach into the presence of Yahweh.
3c 4B 27
7
וְאֶל־בְּנֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל תְּדַבֵּ֣ר לֵאמֹ֑ר
קְח֤וּ שְׂעִיר־עִזִּים֙ לְחַטָּ֔את וְעֵ֨גֶל וָכֶ֧בֶשׂ בְּנֵי־שָׁנָ֛ה תְּמִימִ֖ם לְעֹלָֽה
3 And to the children of Israel you will speak, saying,
Take a kid of the she-goats for a sin offering, and a calf, and a young yearling he-lamb, complete, for a burnt offering,
3c 4C 12
24
וְשׁ֨וֹר וָאַ֜יִל לִשְׁלָמִ֗ים לִזְבֹּ֙חַ֙ לִפְנֵ֣י יְהוָ֔ה וּמִנְחָ֖ה בְּלוּלָ֣ה בַשָּׁ֑מֶן
כִּ֣י הַיּ֔וֹם יְהוָ֖ה נִרְאָ֥ה אֲלֵיכֶֽם
4 And a bull and a ram, for peace offerings to offer in the presence of Yahweh, and a gift mingled with oil,
for today Yahweh will appear to you.
3e 4B 24
10
וַיִּקְח֗וּ אֵ֚ת אֲשֶׁ֣ר צִוָּ֣ה מֹשֶׁ֔ה אֶל־פְּנֵ֖י אֹ֣הֶל מוֹעֵ֑ד
וַֽיִּקְרְבוּ֙ כָּל־הָ֣עֵדָ֔ה וַיַּֽעַמְד֖וּ לִפְנֵ֥י יְהוָֽה
5 And they took what Moses commanded before the tent of engagement,
and all the assembly approached, and they stood in the presence of Yahweh.

וַיֹּ֣אמֶר מֹשֶׁ֔ה זֶ֧ה הַדָּבָ֛ר אֲשֶׁר־צִוָּ֥ה יְהוָ֖ה תַּעֲשׂ֑וּ
וְיֵרָ֥א אֲלֵיכֶ֖ם כְּב֥וֹד יְהוָֽה
6 And Moses said, This is the thing which Yahweh commanded you to do,
and to you will appear the glory of Yahweh.
3c 4B 18
10
וַיֹּ֨אמֶר מֹשֶׁ֜ה אֶֽל־אַהֲרֹ֗ן קְרַ֤ב אֶל־הַמִּזְבֵּ֙חַ֙ וַעֲשֵׂ֞ה אֶת־חַטָּֽאתְךָ֙ וְאֶת־עֹ֣לָתֶ֔ךָ וְכַפֵּ֥ר בַּֽעַדְךָ֖ וּבְעַ֣ד הָעָ֑ם
וַעֲשֵׂ֞ה אֶת־קָרְבַּ֤ן הָעָם֙ וְכַפֵּ֣ר בַּֽעֲדָ֔ם כַּאֲשֶׁ֖ר צִוָּ֥ה יְהוָֽה
7 And Moses said to Aaron, Come near to the altar and make your sin offering, and your burnt offering, and the cover-price concerning yourself and concerning the people,
and make the oblation of the people, and the cover-price concerning them, as Yahweh commanded.

וְאֶת־הַחֵ֨לֶב וְאֶת־הַכְּלָיֹ֜ת וְאֶת־הַיֹּתֶ֤רֶת מִן־הַכָּבֵד֙ מִן־הַ֣חַטָּ֔את הִקְטִ֖יר הַמִּזְבֵּ֑חָה
