Fifth Aliyah



 

8:14
He brought forth the bull for the sin offering, and Aaron and his sons pressed their hands on its head.
Vayagesh et par hachatat vayismoch Aharon uvanav et-yedeyhem al-rosh par hachatat.
וַיַּגֵּשׁ, אֵת פַּר הַחַטָּאת; וַיִּסְמֹךְ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם, עַל-רֹאשׁ פַּר הַחַטָּאת.
 

8:15
Moses slaughtered it and collected the blood. With his finger, he placed [the blood] all around the altar’s protrusions, thus purifying the altar. He poured the [rest of] the blood at the altar’s base, thus sanctifying it so that atonement could be offered on it.
Vayishchat vayikach Moshe et-hadam vayiten al-karnot hamizbe’ach saviv be’etsba’o vayechate et-hamizbe’ach ve’et-hadam yatsak el-yesod hamizbe’ach vayekadeshehu lechaper alav.
וַיִּשְׁחָט, וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַדָּם וַיִּתֵּן עַל-קַרְנוֹת הַמִּזְבֵּחַ סָבִיב בְּאֶצְבָּעוֹ, וַיְחַטֵּא, אֶת-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וְאֶת-הַדָּם, יָצַק אֶל-יְסוֹד הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וַיְקַדְּשֵׁהוּ, לְכַפֵּר עָלָיו.
 

8:16
He took the fat on the stomachs, the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys along with their fat, and Moses burned them on the altar.
Vayikach et-kol-hachelev asher al-hakerev ve’et yoteret hakaved ve’et-shtey haklayot ve’et-chelbehen vayakter Moshe hamizbechah.
וַיִּקַּח, אֶת-כָּל-הַחֵלֶב אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַקֶּרֶב, וְאֵת יֹתֶרֶת הַכָּבֵד, וְאֶת-שְׁתֵּי הַכְּלָיֹת וְאֶת-חֶלְבְּהֶן; וַיַּקְטֵר מֹשֶׁה, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה.
 

8:17
All [the rest of] the bull – its skin, flesh and insides – he burned in fire outside the camp. [It was all done] as God had commanded Moses.
Ve’et-hapar ve’et-oro ve’et-besaro ve’et-pirsho saraf ba’esh michuts lamachaneh ka’asher tsivah Adonay et-Moshe.
וְאֶת-הַפָּר וְאֶת-עֹרוֹ, וְאֶת-בְּשָׂרוֹ וְאֶת-פִּרְשׁוֹ–שָׂרַף בָּאֵשׁ, מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה: כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה.
 

8:18
He brought forth the ram for the burnt offering, and Aaron and his sons pressed their hands on its head.
Vayakrev et eyl ha’olah vayismechu Aharon uvanav et-yedeyhem al-rosh ha’ayil.
וַיַּקְרֵב, אֵת אֵיל הָעֹלָה; וַיִּסְמְכוּ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם–עַל-רֹאשׁ הָאָיִל.
 

8:19
He slaughtered it, and Moses dashed its blood on all sides of the altar.
Vayishchat vayizrok Moshe et-hadam al-hamizbe’ach saviv.
וַיִּשְׁחָט; וַיִּזְרֹק מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַדָּם עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, סָבִיב.
 

8:20
He cut the ram into pieces, and Moses burned the head, the cut pieces, and the intestinal membrane [on the altar],
Ve’et-ha’ayil nitach lintachav vayakter Moshe et-harosh ve’et-hanetachim ve’et-hapader.
וְאֶת-הָאַיִל–נִתַּח, לִנְתָחָיו; וַיַּקְטֵר מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הָרֹאשׁ, וְאֶת-הַנְּתָחִים וְאֶת-הַפָּדֶר.
 

8:21
having [previously] scrubbed the intestines and legs with water. Moses thus burned the entire ram on the altar as a burnt offering. It was an appeasing fragrance, a fire offering to God, [and it was all done] as God had commanded Moses.
Ve’et-hakerev ve’et-hakra’ayim rachats bamayim vayakter Moshe et-kol-ha’ayil hamizbechah olah hu lere’ach nichoach isheh hu l’Adonay ka’asher tsivah Adonay et-Moshe.
וְאֶת-הַקֶּרֶב וְאֶת-הַכְּרָעַיִם, רָחַץ בַּמָּיִם; וַיַּקְטֵר מֹשֶׁה אֶת-כָּל-הָאַיִל הַמִּזְבֵּחָה, עֹלָה הוּא לְרֵיחַ-נִיחֹחַ אִשֶּׁה הוּא לַיהוָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה.
