מה:טז   כֹּל הָעָם הָאָרֶץ, יִהְיוּ אֶל-הַתְּרוּמָה הַזֹּאת, לַנָּשִׂיא, בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל.45:16 All the people of the land shall give this offering for the prince in Israel.
יז   וְעַל-הַנָּשִׂיא יִהְיֶה, הָעוֹלוֹת וְהַמִּנְחָה וְהַנֵּסֶךְ, בַּחַגִּים וּבֶחֳדָשִׁים וּבַשַּׁבָּתוֹת, בְּכָל-מוֹעֲדֵי בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל:  הוּא-יַעֲשֶׂה אֶת-הַחַטָּאת וְאֶת-הַמִּנְחָה, וְאֶת-הָעוֹלָה וְאֶת-הַשְּׁלָמִים, לְכַפֵּר, בְּעַד בֵּית-יִשְׂרָאֵל. 17 And it shall be the prince's part to give the burnt-offerings, and the meal-offerings, and the drink-offerings, in the feasts, and in the new moons, and in the sabbaths, in all the appointed seasons of the house of Israel; he shall prepare the sin-offering, and the meal-offering, and the burnt-offering, and the peace-offerings, to make atonement for the house of Israel.
יח   כֹּה-אָמַר, א-דני יקוק, בָּרִאשׁוֹן בְּאֶחָד לַחֹדֶשׁ, תִּקַּח פַּר-בֶּן-בָּקָר תָּמִים; וְחִטֵּאתָ, אֶת-הַמִּקְדָּשׁ.18 Thus saith the Lord GOD: In the first month, in the first day of the month, thou shalt take a young bullock without blemish; and thou shalt purify the sanctuary.
יט   וְלָקַח הַכֹּהֵן מִדַּם הַחַטָּאת, וְנָתַן אֶל-מְזוּזַת הַבַּיִת, וְאֶל-אַרְבַּע פִּנּוֹת הָעֲזָרָה, לַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וְעַל-מְזוּזַת--שַׁעַר, הֶחָצֵר הַפְּנִימִית.19 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin-offering, and put it upon the door-posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court.
כ   וְכֵן תַּעֲשֶׂה בְּשִׁבְעָה בַחֹדֶשׁ, מֵאִישׁ שֹׁגֶה וּמִפֶּתִי; וְכִפַּרְתֶּם, אֶת-הַבָּיִת.20 And so thou shalt do on the seventh day of the month for every one that erreth, and for him that is simple; so shall ye make atonement for the house.
כא   בָּרִאשׁוֹן בְּאַרְבָּעָה עָשָׂר יוֹם, לַחֹדֶשׁ, יִהְיֶה לָכֶם, הַפָּסַח; חָג--שְׁבֻעוֹת יָמִים, מַצּוֹת יֵאָכֵל.21 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the passover; a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten.
כב   וְעָשָׂה הַנָּשִׂיא, בַּיּוֹם הַהוּא, בַּעֲדוֹ, וּבְעַד כָּל-עַם הָאָרֶץ--פַּר, חַטָּאת.22 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bullock for a sin-offering.
כג   וְשִׁבְעַת יְמֵי-הֶחָג יַעֲשֶׂה עוֹלָה לַיקוק, שִׁבְעַת פָּרִים וְשִׁבְעַת אֵילִים תְּמִימִם לַיּוֹם, שִׁבְעַת, הַיָּמִים; וְחַטָּאת, שְׂעִיר עִזִּים לַיּוֹם.23 And the seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt-offering to the LORD, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and a he-goat daily for a sin-offering.
כד   וּמִנְחָה, אֵיפָה לַפָּר וְאֵיפָה לָאַיִל--יַעֲשֶׂה; וְשֶׁמֶן, הִין לָאֵיפָה.24 And he shall prepare a meal-offering, an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and a hin of oil to an ephah.
כה   בַּשְּׁבִיעִי בַּחֲמִשָּׁה עָשָׂר יוֹם לַחֹדֶשׁ, בֶּחָג, יַעֲשֶׂה כָאֵלֶּה, שִׁבְעַת הַיָּמִים:  כַּחַטָּאת, כָּעֹלָה, וְכַמִּנְחָה, וְכַשָּׁמֶן. 25 In the seventh month, in the fifteenth day of the month, in the feast, shall he do the like the seven days; to the sin-offering as well as the burnt-offering, and the meal-offering as well as the oil.
מו:א   כֹּה-אָמַר, א-דני יקוק, שַׁעַר הֶחָצֵר הַפְּנִימִית הַפֹּנֶה קָדִים, יִהְיֶה סָגוּר שֵׁשֶׁת יְמֵי הַמַּעֲשֶׂה; וּבְיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת יִפָּתֵחַ, וּבְיוֹם הַחֹדֶשׁ יִפָּתֵחַ.46:1 Thus saith the Lord GOD: The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the sabbath day it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.
ב   וּבָא הַנָּשִׂיא דֶּרֶךְ אוּלָם הַשַּׁעַר מִחוּץ, וְעָמַד עַל-מְזוּזַת הַשַּׁעַר, וְעָשׂוּ הַכֹּהֲנִים אֶת-עוֹלָתוֹ וְאֶת-שְׁלָמָיו, וְהִשְׁתַּחֲוָה עַל-מִפְתַּן הַשַּׁעַר וְיָצָא; וְהַשַּׁעַר לֹא-יִסָּגֵר, עַד-הָעָרֶב.2 And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of the gate without, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the priests shall prepare his burnt-offering and his peace-offerings, and he shall worship at the threshold of the gate; then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be shut until the evening.
ג   וְהִשְׁתַּחֲווּ עַם-הָאָרֶץ, פֶּתַח הַשַּׁעַר הַהוּא, בַּשַּׁבָּתוֹת, וּבֶחֳדָשִׁים--לִפְנֵי, יקוק.3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of that gate before the LORD in the sabbaths and in the new moons.
ד   וְהָעֹלָה, אֲשֶׁר-יַקְרִב הַנָּשִׂיא לַיקוק:  בְּיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת, שִׁשָּׁה כְבָשִׂים תְּמִימִם--וְאַיִל תָּמִים.4 And the burnt-offering that the prince shall offer unto the LORD shall be in the sabbath day six lambs without blemish and a ram without blemish;
ה   וּמִנְחָה אֵיפָה לָאַיִל, וְלַכְּבָשִׂים מִנְחָה מַתַּת יָדוֹ; וְשֶׁמֶן, הִין לָאֵיפָה. 5 and the meal-offering shall be an ephah for the ram, and the meal-offering for the lambs as he is able to give, and a hin of oil to an ephah.
ו   וּבְיוֹם הַחֹדֶשׁ, פַּר בֶּן-בָּקָר תְּמִימִם; וְשֵׁשֶׁת כְּבָשִׂים וָאַיִל, תְּמִימִם יִהְיוּ.6 And in the day of the new moon it shall be a young bullock without blemish; and six lambs, and a ram; they shall be without blemish;
ז   וְאֵיפָה לַפָּר וְאֵיפָה לָאַיִל, יַעֲשֶׂה מִנְחָה, וְלַכְּבָשִׂים, כַּאֲשֶׁר תַּשִּׂיג יָדוֹ; וְשֶׁמֶן, הִין לָאֵיפָה.7 and he shall prepare a meal-offering, an ephah for the bullock, and an ephah for the ram, and for the lambs according as his means suffice, and a hin of oil to an ephah.
ח   וּבְבוֹא, הַנָּשִׂיא--דֶּרֶךְ אוּלָם הַשַּׁעַר יָבוֹא, וּבְדַרְכּוֹ יֵצֵא.8 And when the prince shall enter, he shall go in by the way of the porch of the gate, and he shall go forth by the way thereof.
ט   וּבְבוֹא עַם-הָאָרֶץ לִפְנֵי יקוק, בַּמּוֹעֲדִים, הַבָּא דֶּרֶךְ-שַׁעַר צָפוֹן לְהִשְׁתַּחֲות יֵצֵא דֶּרֶךְ-שַׁעַר נֶגֶב, וְהַבָּא דֶּרֶךְ-שַׁעַר נֶגֶב יֵצֵא דֶּרֶךְ-שַׁעַר צָפוֹנָה:  לֹא יָשׁוּב, דֶּרֶךְ הַשַּׁעַר אֲשֶׁר-בָּא בוֹ--כִּי נִכְחוֹ, יצאו (יֵצֵא).9 But when the people of the land shall come before the LORD in the appointed seasons, he that entereth by the way of the north gate to worship shall go forth by the way of the south gate; and he that entereth by the way of the south gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate; he shall not return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but shall go forth straight before him.
י   וְהַנָּשִׂיא--בְּתוֹכָם בְּבוֹאָם יָבוֹא, וּבְצֵאתָם יֵצֵאוּ.10 And the prince, when they go in, shall go in in the midst of them; and when they go forth, they shall go forth together.
יא   וּבַחַגִּים וּבַמּוֹעֲדִים, תִּהְיֶה הַמִּנְחָה אֵיפָה לַפָּר וְאֵיפָה לָאַיִל, וְלַכְּבָשִׂים, מַתַּת יָדוֹ; וְשֶׁמֶן, הִין לָאֵיפָה. 11 And in the feasts and in the appointed seasons the meal-offering shall be an ephah for a bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs as he is able to give, and a hin of oil to an ephah.
יב   וְכִי-יַעֲשֶׂה הַנָּשִׂיא נְדָבָה עוֹלָה אוֹ-שְׁלָמִים, נְדָבָה לַיקוק, וּפָתַח לוֹ אֶת-הַשַּׁעַר הַפֹּנֶה קָדִים, וְעָשָׂה אֶת-עֹלָתוֹ וְאֶת-שְׁלָמָיו כַּאֲשֶׁר יַעֲשֶׂה בְּיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת; וְיָצָא וְסָגַר אֶת-הַשַּׁעַר, אַחֲרֵי צֵאתוֹ.12 And when the prince shall prepare a freewill-offering, a burnt-offering or peace-offerings as a freewill-offering unto the LORD, one shall open for him the gate that looketh toward the east, and he shall prepare his burnt-offering and his peace-offerings, as he doth on the sabbath day; then he shall go forth; and after his going forth one shall shut the gate.
יג   וְכֶבֶשׂ בֶּן-שְׁנָתוֹ תָּמִים, תַּעֲשֶׂה עוֹלָה לַיּוֹם--לַיקוק:  בַּבֹּקֶר בַּבֹּקֶר, תַּעֲשֶׂה אֹתוֹ.13 And thou shalt prepare a lamb of the first year without blemish for a burnt-offering unto the LORD daily; morning by morning shalt thou prepare it.
יד   וּמִנְחָה תַעֲשֶׂה עָלָיו בַּבֹּקֶר בַּבֹּקֶר, שִׁשִּׁית הָאֵיפָה, וְשֶׁמֶן שְׁלִישִׁית הַהִין, לָרֹס אֶת-הַסֹּלֶת:  מִנְחָה, לַיקוק--חֻקּוֹת עוֹלָם, תָּמִיד.14 And thou shalt prepare a meal-offering with it morning by morning, the sixth part of an ephah, and the third part of a hin of oil, to moisten the fine flour: a meal-offering unto the LORD continually by a perpetual ordinance.
טו   ועשו (יַעֲשׂוּ) אֶת-הַכֶּבֶשׂ וְאֶת-הַמִּנְחָה וְאֶת-הַשֶּׁמֶן, בַּבֹּקֶר בַּבֹּקֶר:  עוֹלַת, תָּמִיד. 15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the meal-offering, and the oil, morning by morning, for a continual burnt-offering.
טז   כֹּה-אָמַר א-דני יקוק, כִּי-יִתֵּן הַנָּשִׂיא מַתָּנָה לְאִישׁ מִבָּנָיו--נַחֲלָתוֹ הִיא, לְבָנָיו תִּהְיֶה:  אֲחֻזָּתָם הִיא, בְּנַחֲלָה. 16 Thus saith the Lord GOD: If the prince give a gift unto any of his sons, it is his inheritance, it shall belong to his sons; it is their possession by inheritance.
יז   וְכִי-יִתֵּן מַתָּנָה מִנַּחֲלָתוֹ, לְאַחַד מֵעֲבָדָיו--וְהָיְתָה לּוֹ עַד-שְׁנַת הַדְּרוֹר, וְשָׁבַת לַנָּשִׂיא; אַךְ, נַחֲלָתוֹ--בָּנָיו, לָהֶם תִּהְיֶה.17 But if he give of his inheritance a gift to one of his servants, it shall be his to the year of liberty; then it shall return to the prince; but as for his inheritance, it shall be for his sons.
יח   וְלֹא-יִקַּח הַנָּשִׂיא מִנַּחֲלַת הָעָם, לְהוֹנֹתָם מֵאֲחֻזָּתָם--מֵאֲחֻזָּתוֹ, יַנְחִל אֶת-בָּנָיו:  לְמַעַן אֲשֶׁר לֹא-יָפֻצוּ עַמִּי, אִישׁ מֵאֲחֻזָּתוֹ.18 Moreover the prince shall not take of the people's inheritance, to thrust them wrongfully out of their possession; he shall give inheritance to his sons out of his own possession; that My people be not scattered every man from his possession.'
