"If a calf is presented to me as an offering, it must be a male without any defect. He will bring him to the entrance of the sanctuary, and there he will put his hand on the head of the calf and kill it. I will receive his offering with favor, and I will forgive his sins. "The priests will present the blood of the calf and pour it on the four sides of the altar. He who gives me the offering will remove the hide and cut the animal into pieces. Finally, he will wash with water the intestines and the legs of the animal, and will give everything to the priests. They will put wood on the altar and set it on fire, and there they will burn the pieces of the calf, along with the head, the legs, the intestines and the fat. It is an offering of pleasant aroma, which is presented in my honor.

"If someone offers me a lamb or a kid, it must also be a male without any defect. He shall kill it on the side of the altar, and the priests shall shed the blood on the four sides. Then the one who presents the offering will cut the animal into pieces. Finally, he will wash with water the intestines and the legs of the animal, and will give everything to the priests. They will burn the pieces on the altar, along with the head, legs, intestines and fat. It is an offering of pleasant aroma, which is presented in my honor.
