Shemini Hebrew Parsha – 4th Aliyah

Shemini (שְּׁמִינִי)

Leviticus 9:1 – 11:47

Fourth Aliyah



10:12
Moses announced to Aaron and his surviving sons, Eleazar and Ithamar, ‘Take the remainder of the meal offering that is before God, and eat it as unleavened bread near the altar. Since it is holy of holies,
Vayedaber Moshe el-Aharon ve’el El’azar ve’el-Itamar banav hanotarim kechu et-haminchah hanoteret me’ishey Adonay ve’ichluha matsot etsel hamizbe’ach ki kodesh kodashim hi.
וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-אַהֲרֹן, וְאֶל אֶלְעָזָר וְאֶל-אִיתָמָר בָּנָיו הַנּוֹתָרִים, קְחוּ אֶת-הַמִּנְחָה הַנּוֹתֶרֶת מֵאִשֵּׁי יְהוָה, וְאִכְלוּהָ מַצּוֹת אֵצֶל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ: כִּי קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים, הִוא.

10:13
you must eat it in a holy place. It is the portion for you and your descendants from God’s fire offerings, since I have thus been commanded.
Va’achaltem otah bemakom kadosh ki chokcha vechok-baneycha hi me’ishey Adonay ki-chen tsuveyti.
וַאֲכַלְתֶּם אֹתָהּ, בְּמָקוֹם קָדוֹשׁ, כִּי חָקְךָ וְחָק-בָּנֶיךָ הִוא, מֵאִשֵּׁי יְהוָה: כִּי-כֵן, צֻוֵּיתִי.

10:14
‘However, the chest taken as a wave offering and the hind leg taken as an elevated gift, you may eat together with your sons and daughters. It is the portion designated for you and your descendants from the peace sacrifices of the Israelites.
Ve’et chazeh hatnufah ve’et shok hatrumah tochlu bemakom tahor atah uvaneycha uvnoteycha itach ki-chokcha vechok-baneycha nitnu mizivchey shalmey beney Yisra’el.
וְאֵת חֲזֵה הַתְּנוּפָה וְאֵת שׁוֹק הַתְּרוּמָה, תֹּאכְלוּ בְּמָקוֹם טָהוֹר–אַתָּה, וּבָנֶיךָ וּבְנֹתֶיךָ אִתָּךְ: כִּי-חָקְךָ וְחָק-בָּנֶיךָ נִתְּנוּ, מִזִּבְחֵי שַׁלְמֵי בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל.

10:15
‘The hind leg for the elevated gift, and the chest for the wave offering, shall be brought on top of the choice parts designated as the fire offering. [It is all] to be waved in the prescribed motions of the wave offering. [The leg and chest] are meant to be a portion for you and your descendants for all time, as God commanded.’
Shok hatrumah vachazeh hatnufah al ishey hachalavim yavi’u lehanif tnufah lifney Adonay vehayah lecha ulevaneycha itcha lechok-olam ka’asher tsivah Adonay.
שׁוֹק הַתְּרוּמָה וַחֲזֵה הַתְּנוּפָה, עַל אִשֵּׁי הַחֲלָבִים יָבִיאוּ, לְהָנִיף תְּנוּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה; וְהָיָה לְךָ וּלְבָנֶיךָ אִתְּךָ, לְחָק-עוֹלָם, כַּאֲשֶׁר, צִוָּה יְהוָה.
