Leviticus 1:1-17
1. The LORD summoned Moses and spoke to him from the tent of meeting, saying:
2. Speak to the people of Israel and say to them: When any of you bring an offering of livestock to the LORD, you shall bring your offering from the herd or from the flock.
3. If the offering is a burnt offering from the herd, you shall offer a male without blemish; you shall bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting, for acceptance in your behalf before the LORD.
4. You shall lay your hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it shall be acceptable in your behalf as atonement for you.
5. The bull shall be slaughtered before the LORD; and Aaron's sons the priests shall offer the blood, dashing the blood against all sides of the altar that is at the entrance of the tent of meeting.
6. The burnt offering shall be flayed and cut up into its parts.
7. The sons of the priest Aaron shall put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire.
8. Aaron's sons the priests shall arrange the parts, with the head and the suet, on the wood that is on the fire on the altar;
9. but its entrails and its legs shall be washed with water. Then the priest shall turn the whole into smoke on the altar as a burnt offering, an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the LORD.
10. If your gift for a burnt offering is from the flock, from the sheep or goats, your offering shall be a male without blemish.
11. It shall be slaughtered on the north side of the altar before the LORD, and Aaron's sons the priests shall dash its blood against all sides of the altar.
12. It shall be cut up into its parts, with its head and its suet, and the priest shall arrange them on the wood that is on the fire on the altar;
13. but the entrails and the legs shall be washed with water. Then the priest shall offer the whole and turn it into smoke on the altar; it is a burnt offering, an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the LORD.
14. If your offering to the LORD is a burnt offering of birds, you shall choose your offering from turtledoves or pigeons.
15. The priest shall bring it to the altar and wring off its head, and turn it into smoke on the altar; and its blood shall be drained out against the side of the altar.
16. He shall remove its crop with its contents and throw it at the east side of the altar, in the place for ashes.
17. He shall tear it open by its wings without severing it. Then the priest shall turn it into smoke on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire; it is a burnt offering, an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the LORD.

Leviticus 2:1-16
1. When anyone presents a grain offering to the LORD, the offering shall be of choice flour; the worshiper shall pour oil on it, and put frankincense on it,
2. and bring it to Aaron's sons the priests. After taking from it a handful of the choice flour and oil, with all its frankincense, the priest shall turn this token portion into smoke on the altar, an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the LORD.
3. And what is left of the grain offering shall be for Aaron and his sons, a most holy part of the offerings by fire to the LORD.
4. When you present a grain offering baked in the oven, it shall be of choice flour: unleavened cakes mixed with oil, or unleavened wafers spread with oil.
5. If your offering is grain prepared on a griddle, it shall be of choice flour mixed with oil, unleavened;
6. break it in pieces, and pour oil on it; it is a grain offering.
7. If your offering is grain prepared in a pan, it shall be made of choice flour in oil.
8. You shall bring to the LORD the grain offering that is prepared in any of these ways; and when it is presented to the priest, he shall take it to the altar.
9. The priest shall remove from the grain offering its token portion and turn this into smoke on the altar, an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the LORD.
10. And what is left of the grain offering shall be for Aaron and his sons; it is a most holy part of the offerings by fire to the LORD.
11. No grain offering that you bring to the LORD shall be made with leaven, for you must not turn any leaven or honey into smoke as an offering by fire to the LORD.
12. You may bring them to the LORD as an offering of choice products, but they shall not be offered on the altar for a pleasing odor.
13. You shall not omit from your grain offerings the salt of the covenant with your God; with all your offerings you shall offer salt.
14. If you bring a grain offering of first fruits to the LORD, you shall bring as the grain offering of your first fruits coarse new grain from fresh ears, parched with fire.
15. You shall add oil to it and lay frankincense on it; it is a grain offering.
16. And the priest shall turn a token portion of it into smoke-- some of the coarse grain and oil with all its frankincense; it is an offering by fire to the LORD.

Psalms 22:22-31
22. I will tell of your name to my brothers and sisters; in the midst of the congregation I will praise you:
23. You who fear the LORD, praise him! All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him; stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!
24. For he did not despise or abhor the affliction of the afflicted; he did not hide his face from me, but heard when I cried to him.
25. From you comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will pay before those who fear him.
26. The poor shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the LORD. May your hearts live forever!
27. All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD; and all the families of the nations shall worship before him.
28. For dominion belongs to the LORD, and he rules over the nations.
29. To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and I shall live for him.
30. Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord,
31. and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, saying that he has done it.

Proverbs 8:32-36
32. And now, my children, listen to me: happy are those who keep my ways.
33. Hear instruction and be wise, and do not neglect it.
34. Happy is the one who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting beside my doors.
35. For whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the LORD;
36. but those who miss me injure themselves; all who hate me love death."

Matthew 27:27-54
27. Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governor's headquarters, and they gathered the whole cohort around him.
28. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him,
29. and after twisting some thorns into a crown, they put it on his head. They put a reed in his right hand and knelt before him and mocked him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!"
30. They spat on him, and took the reed and struck him on the head.
31. After mocking him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him.
32. As they went out, they came upon a man from Cyrene named Simon; they compelled this man to carry his cross.
33. And when they came to a place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull),
34. they offered him wine to drink, mixed with gall; but when he tasted it, he would not drink it.
35. And when they had crucified him, they divided his clothes among themselves by casting lots;
36. then they sat down there and kept watch over him.
37. Over his head they put the charge against him, which read, "This is Jesus, the King of the Jews."
38. Then two bandits were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left.
39. Those who passed by derided him, shaking their heads
40. and saying, "You who would destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross."
41. In the same way the chief priests also, along with the scribes and elders, were mocking him, saying,
42. "He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down from the cross now, and we will believe in him.
43. He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he wants to; for he said, 'I am God's Son.'"
44. The bandits who were crucified with him also taunted him in the same way.
45. From noon on, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon.
46. And about three o'clock Jesus cried with a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?" that is, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
47. When some of the bystanders heard it, they said, "This man is calling for Elijah."
48. At once one of them ran and got a sponge, filled it with sour wine, put it on a stick, and gave it to him to drink.
49. But the others said, "Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him."
50. Then Jesus cried again with a loud voice and breathed his last.
51. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, and the rocks were split.
52. The tombs also were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised.
53. After his resurrection they came out of the tombs and entered the holy city and appeared to many.
54. Now when the centurion and those with him, who were keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were terrified and said, "Truly this man was God's Son!"
