Leviticus 3:1-17
1. IF A man's offering is a sacrifice of peace offering, if he offers an animal from the herd, whether male or female, he shall offer it without blemish before the Lord.
2. He shall lay [both] his hands upon the head of his offering and kill it at the door of the Tent of Meeting; and Aaron's sons the priests shall throw the blood against the altar round about.
3. And from the sacrifice of the peace offering, an offering made by fire to the Lord, he shall offer the fat that covers and is upon the entrails,
4. And the two kidneys with the fat that is on them at the loins, and the appendage of the liver which he shall take away with the kidneys.
5. Aaron's sons shall burn it all on the altar upon the burnt offering which is on the wood on the fire, an offering made by fire, of a sweet and satisfying odor to the Lord.
6. If his peace offering to the Lord is an animal from the flock, male or female, he shall offer it without blemish.
7. If he offers a lamb, then he shall offer it before the Lord.
8. He shall lay [both] his hands on the head of his offering and kill it before the Tent of Meeting; and Aaron's sons shall throw its blood around against the altar.
9. And he shall offer from the peace offering as an offering made by fire to the Lord: the fat of it, the fat tail as a whole, taking it off close to the backbone, and the fat that covers and is upon the entrails,
10. And the two kidneys, and the fat on them at the loins, and the appendage of the liver, which he shall take away with the kidneys.
11. The priest shall burn it upon the altar, a food offering made by fire to the Lord.
12. If [a man's] offering is a goat, he shall offer it before the Lord,
13. And lay his hands upon its head, and kill it before the Tent of Meeting; and the sons of Aaron shall throw its blood against the altar round about.
14. Then he shall offer from it as his offering made by fire to the Lord: the fat that covers and is on the entrails,
15. And the two kidneys and the fat that is on them at the loins, and the appendage of the liver which he shall take away with the kidneys.
16. The priest shall burn them on the altar as food, offered by fire, for a sweet and satisfying fragrance. All the fat is the Lord's.
17. It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations in all your dwelling places, that you eat neither fat nor blood.

Leviticus 4:1-35
1. AND THE Lord said to Moses,
2. Say to the Israelites, If anyone shall sin through error or unwittingly in any of the things which the Lord has commanded not to be done, and shall do any one of them--
3. If it is the anointed priest who sins, thus bringing guilt on the people, then let him offer for his sin which he has committed a young bull without blemish to the Lord as a sin offering. [Heb. 7:27, 28.]
4. He shall bring the bull to the door of the Tent of Meeting before the Lord, and shall lay [both] his hands on the bull's head and kill [it] before the Lord.
5. And the anointed priest shall take some of the bull's blood and bring it into the Tent of Meeting;
6. And the priest shall dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle some of [it] seven times before the Lord before the veil of the sanctuary.
7. And the priest shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar of sweet incense before the Lord which is in the Tent of Meeting; and all the rest of the blood of the bull shall he pour out at the base of the altar of the burnt offering at the door of the Tent of Meeting.
8. And all the fat of the bull for the sin offering he shall take off of it--the fat that covers and is on the entrails,
9. And the two kidneys and the fat that is on them at the loins, and the appendage of the liver, which he shall take away with the kidneys--
10. Just as these are taken off of the bull of the sacrifice of the peace offerings; and the priest shall burn them on the altar of burnt offering.
11. But the hide of the bull and all its flesh, its head, its legs, its entrails, and its dung,
12. Even the whole bull shall he carry forth without the camp to a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn it on a fire of wood, there where the ashes are poured out. [Heb. 13:11-13.]
13. If the whole congregation of Israel sins unintentionally, and it be hidden from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done what the Lord has commanded not to be done and are guilty,
14. When the sin which they have committed becomes known, then the congregation shall offer a young bull for a sin offering and bring it before the Tent of Meeting.
15. The elders of the congregation shall lay their hands upon the head of the bull before the Lord, and the bull shall be killed before the Lord.
16. The anointed priest shall bring some of the bull's blood to the Tent of Meeting,
17. And shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the Lord, before the veil [which screens the ark of the covenant].
18. He shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar [of incense] which is before the Lord in the Tent of Meeting, and he shall pour out all the blood at the base of the altar of burnt offering near the door of the Tent of Meeting.
19. And he shall take all its fat from the bull and burn it on the altar.
20. Thus shall he do with the bull; as he did with the bull for a sin offering, so shall he do with this; and the priest shall make atonement for [the people], and they shall be forgiven.
21. And he shall carry forth the bull outside the camp and burn it as he burned the first bull; it is the sin offering for the congregation.
22. When a ruler or leader sins and unwittingly does any one of the things the Lord his God has forbidden, and is guilty,
23. If his sin which he has committed be known to him, he shall bring as his offering a goat, a male without blemish.
24. He shall lay his hand on the head of the goat and kill it in the place where they kill the burnt offering before the Lord; it is a sin offering.
25. The priest shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering and pour the rest of its blood at the base of the altar of burnt offering.
26. And he shall burn all its fat upon the altar like the fat of the sacrifice of peace offerings; so the priest shall make atonement for him for his sin, and it shall be forgiven him.
27. If any one of the common people sins unwittingly in doing anything the Lord has commanded not to be done, and is guilty,
28. When the sin which he has committed is made known to him, he shall bring for his offering a goat, a female without blemish, for his sin which he has committed.
29. The offender shall lay his hand on the head of the sin offering and kill [it] at the place of the burnt offering.
30. And the priest shall take some of its blood with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering and shall pour out the rest of its blood at the base of the altar.
31. And all the fat of it he shall take away, as the fat is taken away from off the sacrifice of peace offerings; and the priest shall burn it on the altar for a sweet and satisfying fragrance to the Lord; and the priest shall make atonement for [the man], and he shall be forgiven.
32. If he brings a lamb as his sin offering, he shall bring a female without blemish.
33. He shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin offering and kill it in the place where they kill the burnt offering.
34. And the priest shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering and all the rest of the blood of the lamb he shall pour out at the base of the altar.
35. And he shall take away all the fat of it, just as the fat of the lamb is removed from the sacrifice of the peace offerings; and the priest shall burn it on the altar upon the offerings made by fire to the Lord; and the priest shall make atonement for the sin which the man has committed, and he shall be forgiven. [Heb. 9:13, 14.]

Psalms 23:1-6
1. A Psalm of David. THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.
2. He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful waters. [Rev. 7:17.]
3. He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him--not for my earning it, but] for His name's sake.
4. Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.
5. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over.
6. Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.

Proverbs 9:1-6
1. WISDOM HAS built her house; she has hewn out and set up her seven [perfect number of] pillars.
2. She has killed her beasts, she has mixed her [spiritual] wine; she has also set her table. [Matt. 22:2-4.]
3. She has sent out her maids to cry from the highest places of the town:
4. Whoever is simple (easily led astray and wavering), let him turn in here! As for him who lacks understanding, [God's] Wisdom says to him,
5. Come, eat of my bread and drink of the [spiritual] wine which I have mixed. [Isa. 55:1; John 6:27.]
6. Leave off, simple ones [forsake the foolish and simpleminded] and live! And walk in the way of insight and understanding.

Matthew 27:55-66
55. There were also numerous women there, looking on from a distance, who were of those who had accompanied Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him.
56. Among them were Mary of Magdala, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of Zebedee's sons.
57. When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who also was a disciple of Jesus.
58. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him.
59. And Joseph took the body and rolled it up in a clean linen cloth used for swathing dead bodies
60. And laid it in his own fresh (undefiled) tomb, which he had hewn in the rock; and he rolled a big boulder over the door of the tomb and went away.
61. And Mary of Magdala and the other Mary kept sitting there opposite the tomb.
62. The next day, that is, the day after the day of Preparation [for the Sabbath], the chief priests and the Pharisees assembled before Pilate
63. And said, Sir, we have just remembered how that vagabond Imposter said while He was still alive, After three days I will rise again.
64. Therefore give an order to have the tomb made secure and safeguarded until the third day, for fear that His disciples will come and steal Him away and tell the people that He has risen from the dead, and the last deception and fraud will be worse than the first.
65. Pilate said to them, You have a guard [of soldiers; take them and] go, make it as secure as you can.
66. So they went off and made the tomb secure by sealing the boulder, a guard of soldiers being with them and remaining to watch.
