Tzav Hebrew Parsha – Maftir

Tzav (צַו)

Leviticus 6:1 – 8:36

Maftir



8:33
Do not leave the entrance of the Communion Tent for seven days, until your period of inauguration is complete. This is because your installation ceremony shall last for seven days.
Umipetach Ohel Mo’ed lo tets’u shiv’at yamim ad yom mel’ot yemey milu’eychem ki shiv’at yamim yemale et-yedchem.
וּמִפֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד לֹא תֵצְאוּ, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים–עַד יוֹם מְלֹאת, יְמֵי מִלֻּאֵיכֶם: כִּי שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, יְמַלֵּא אֶת-יֶדְכֶם.

8:34
God has commanded that whatever was done on this day must be done [all seven days] to atone for you.
Ka’asher asah bayom hazeh tsivah Adonay la’asot lechaper aleychem.
כַּאֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה, בַּיּוֹם הַזֶּה–צִוָּה יְהוָה לַעֲשֹׂת, לְכַפֵּר עֲלֵיכֶם.

8:35
Remain at the Communion Tent’s entrance day and night for seven days. You will thus keep God’s charge and not die, since this is what was commanded.’
Ufetach Ohel Mo’ed teshvu yomam valaylah shiv’at yamim ushmartem et-mishmeret Adonay velo tamutu ki-chen tsuveyti.
וּפֶתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד תֵּשְׁבוּ יוֹמָם וָלַיְלָה, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, וּשְׁמַרְתֶּם אֶת-מִשְׁמֶרֶת יְהוָה, וְלֹא תָמוּתוּ: כִּי-כֵן, צֻוֵּיתִי.

8:36
Aaron and his sons did all these things, just as God had commanded through Moses.
Vaya’as Aharon uvanav et kol-hadevarim asher-tsivah Adonay beyad-Moshe.
וַיַּעַשׂ אַהֲרֹן, וּבָנָיו–אֵת, כָּל-הַדְּבָרִים, אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה, בְּיַד-מֹשֶׁה.
