Portion 26.i “atoning for yourself and for the people”

Vayikra (Leviticus) Chapter 9

1. And it was on the eighth day, that Moses summoned Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel. א. וַיְהִי בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁמִינִי קָרָא משֶׁה לְאַהֲרֹן וּלְבָנָיו וּלְזִקְנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל:
2. And he said to Aaron,

“Take for yourself a bull calf as a sin offering, and a ram as a burnt offering, [both] unblemished, and bring [them] near before the Lord.

ב. וַיֹּאמֶר אֶל אַהֲרֹן קַח לְךָ עֵגֶל בֶּן בָּקָר לְחַטָּאת וְאַיִל לְעֹלָה תְּמִימִם וְהַקְרֵב לִפְנֵי יְהֹוָה:
3. And to the children of Israel, you shall speak, saying,

‘Take a he goat as a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, [both] in their first year and [both] unblemished, as a burnt offering,

ג. וְאֶל בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל תְּדַבֵּר לֵאמֹר קְחוּ שְׂעִיר עִזִּים לְחַטָּאת וְעֵגֶל וָכֶבֶשׂ בְּנֵי שָׁנָה תְּמִימִם לְעֹלָה:
4. and an ox and a ram as peace offerings, to slaughter before the Lord, and a meal offering mixed with oil, for today the Lord is appearing to you.’ “ ד. וְשׁוֹר וָאַיִל לִשְׁלָמִים לִזְבֹּחַ לִפְנֵי יְהֹוָה וּמִנְחָה בְּלוּלָה בַשָּׁמֶן כִּי הַיּוֹם יְהֹוָה נִרְאָה אֲלֵיכֶם:
5. And they took what Moses had commanded, to the front of the Tent of Meeting, and the entire community approached and stood before the Lord. ה. וַיִּקְחוּ אֵת אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה משֶׁה אֶל פְּנֵי אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד וַיִּקְרְבוּ כָּל הָעֵדָה וַיַּעַמְדוּ לִפְנֵי יְהֹוָה:
6. And Moses said,

“This is the thing the Lord has commanded; do [it], and the glory of the Lord will appear to you.”

ו. וַיֹּאמֶר משֶׁה זֶה הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהֹוָה תַּעֲשׂוּ וְיֵרָא אֲלֵיכֶם כְּבוֹד יְהֹוָה:
7. And Moses said to Aaron,

“Approach the altar and perform your sin offering and your burnt offering, atoning for yourself and for the people, and perform the people’s sacrifice, atoning for them, as the Lord has commanded.

ז. וַיֹּאמֶר משֶׁה אֶל אַהֲרֹן קְרַב אֶל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ וַעֲשֵׂה אֶת חַטָּאתְךָ וְאֶת עֹלָתֶךָ וְכַפֵּר בַּעַדְךָ וּבְעַד הָעָם וַעֲשֵׂה אֶת קָרְבַּן הָעָם וְכַפֵּר בַּעֲדָם כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהֹוָה:
8. So Aaron approached the altar and slaughtered his sin offering calf. ח. וַיִּקְרַב אַהֲרֹן אֶל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ וַיִּשְׁחַט אֶת עֵגֶל הַחַטָּאת אֲשֶׁר לוֹ:
9. And Aaron’s sons brought forward the blood to him, and he dipped his finger into the blood, placing [some] on the horns of the altar, and he poured the blood at the base of the altar. ט. וַיַּקְרִבוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן אֶת הַדָּם אֵלָיו וַיִּטְבֹּל אֶצְבָּעוֹ בַּדָּם וַיִּתֵּן עַל קַרְנוֹת הַמִּזְבֵּחַ וְאֶת הַדָּם יָצַק אֶל יְסוֹד הַמִּזְבֵּחַ:
10. And the fat, the kidneys, and the diaphragm with the liver from the sin offering, he caused to [go up in] smoke on the altar, as the Lord had commanded Moses. י. וְאֶת הַחֵלֶב וְאֶת הַכְּלָיֹת וְאֶת הַיֹּתֶרֶת מִן הַכָּבֵד מִן הַחַטָּאת הִקְטִיר הַמִּזְבֵּחָה כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהֹוָה אֶת משֶׁה:
11. And he burned the flesh and the hide in fire, outside the camp. יא. וְאֶת הַבָּשָׂר וְאֶת הָעוֹר שָׂרַף בָּאֵשׁ מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה:
12. And he slaughtered the burnt offering. And Aaron’s sons presented the blood to him, and he dashed it on the altar, around. יב. וַיִּשְׁחַט אֶת הָעֹלָה וַיַּמְצִאוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן אֵלָיו אֶת הַדָּם וַיִּזְרְקֵהוּ עַל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ סָבִיב:
13. And they presented the burnt offering to him in its [prescribed] pieces, along with the head. And he caused [them] to [go up in] smoke on the altar. יג. וְאֶת הָעֹלָה הִמְצִיאוּ אֵלָיו לִנְתָחֶיהָ וְאֶת הָרֹאשׁ וַיַּקְטֵר עַל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ:
14. And he washed the innards and the legs, and he caused [them] to [go up in] smoke on the altar, along with the burnt offering. יד. וַיִּרְחַץ אֶת הַקֶּרֶב וְאֶת הַכְּרָעָיִם וַיַּקְטֵר עַל הָעֹלָה הַמִּזְבֵּחָה:
15. And he brought forward the people’s sacrifice; he took the people’s sin offering goat, slaughtered it, and made it a sin offering, like the first one. טו. וַיַּקְרֵב אֵת קָרְבַּן הָעָם וַיִּקַּח אֶת שְׂעִיר הַחַטָּאת אֲשֶׁר לָעָם וַיִּשְׁחָטֵהוּ וַיְחַטְּאֵהוּ כָּרִאשׁוֹן:
16. And he brought forward the burnt offering and prepared it according to the law. טז. וַיַּקְרֵב אֶת הָעֹלָה וַיַּעֲשֶׂהָ כַּמִּשְׁפָּט:

Psalms Chapter 149

1 Hallelujah. {N}

Sing unto the LORD a new song, and His praise in the assembly of the saints.
2 Let Israel rejoice in his Maker;
let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
3 Let them praise His name in the dance;
let them sing praises unto Him with the timbrel and harp.
4 For the LORD taketh pleasure in His people;
He adorneth the humble with salvation.
5 Let the saints exult in glory;
let them sing for joy upon their beds.
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand;
7 To execute vengeance upon the nations, and chastisements upon the peoples;
8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute upon them the judgment written;
He is the glory of all His saints. {N}

Hallelujah.

Mark 11 >> 1 And when he approached Jerusalem on

the side of Bayth Phage and Bayth Anya to Tura d’Zaytay, he sent two of his disciples. 2And he said to them,

“Go to that village opposite us, and immediately entering you will find a colt that is tied
which no one of the children of men has ridden. Loose him and bring him,” 3“And if a man says
to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’, say to him, ‘He is needed by Our Lord.’ And at once he
will send him here.”

4And they went and found a colt that was tied on the gate outside in the street, and as they untied him, 5Some among those who were standing there said to them,

“What are you doing that you are untying the colt?”

6But they said to them according to what Yeshua had commanded them, and they allowed them. 7And they brought the colt to Yeshua and they threw their garments on it, and Yeshua rode upon him. 8But many were spreading their coats in the road and others were cutting branches from trees and spreading them in the road.
9And those who were before him and those who were behind were cheering and they were saying,

“Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of THE LORD JEHOVAH!”
10“Blessed is the Kingdom that comes of our father David! Hosanna in The Highest!”

11And Yeshua entered Jerusalem and into The Temple, and he saw everything, but when it was evening he went out to Beth Anya with the twelve.
12And on the next day when he went out from Bethany he was hungry. 13And he saw a fig tree from a distance that had leaves on it and he came to it that perhaps he might find something on it, and when he came, he found nothing on it but leaves, for it was not the season of figs. 14And he said to it,

“From now and forever no man will eat fruit from you!”

And his disciples heard it and they came to Jerusalem.
15And Yeshua entered The Temple of God and he began to cast out those who bought and sold in The Temple and he overturned the tables of the money exchangers and the seats of those who were selling doves. 16And he allowed no one to carry merchandise inside The Temple. 17And he taught and he said to them,

“Is it not written: ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations?’ But you
have made it a den of robbers.”

18And the Chief Priests and the Scribes heard and they were seeking how they might destroy him, for they were afraid of him, because all the people were awestruck at his teaching.
19And when it was evening, they went outside the city.

Portion 25.vi,vii – abide day and night seven days

6
Leviticus 8,22 And the other ram was presented,

the ram of consecration, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.
8,23 And when it was slain, Moses took of the blood thereof, and put it upon the tip of Aaron’s right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot. 8,24 And Aaron’s sons were brought, and Moses put of the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot; and Moses dashed the blood against the altar round about. 8,25 And he took the fat, and the fat tail, and all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right thigh. 8,26 And out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before the LORD, he took one unleavened cake, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and placed them on the fat, and upon the right thigh. 8,27 And he put the whole upon the hands of Aaron, and upon the hands of his sons, and waved them for a wave-offering before the LORD. 8,28 And Moses took them from off their hands, and made them smoke on the altar upon the burnt-offering; they were a consecration-offering for a sweet savour; it was an offering made by fire unto the LORD. 8,29 And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave-offering before the LORD; it was Moses’ portion of the ram of consecration; as the LORD commanded Moses.

7
8,30 And Moses took of the anointing oil,

and of the blood which was upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sons’ garments with him, and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons’ garments with him. 8,31 And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons:

‘Boil the flesh at the door of the tent of meeting; and there eat it and the bread that is in
the basket of consecration, as I commanded, saying: Aaron and his sons shall eat it. 8,32 And
that which remaineth of the flesh and of the bread shall ye burn with fire. 8,33 And ye shall
not go out from the door of the tent of meeting seven days, until the days of your
consecration be fulfilled; for He shall consecrate you seven days. 8,34 As hath been done
this day, so the LORD hath commanded to do, to make atonement for you. 8,35 And at the door
of the tent of meeting shall ye abide day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the
LORD, that ye die not; for so I am commanded. 8,36 And Aaron and his sons did all the things
which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

the LORD raiseth up them that are bowed down – Writings:Psalms 146/147

Shabbat Shalom and happy weekend to you!

Psalms Chapter 146

1 Hallelujah. {N}
Praise the LORD, O my soul.
2 I will praise the LORD while I live;
I will sing praises unto my God while I have my being.
3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his dust;
in that very day his thoughts perish.
5 Happy is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,
6 Who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is; {N}
who keepeth truth for ever;
7 Who executeth justice for the oppressed;
who giveth bread to the hungry.
The LORD looseth the prisoners;
8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind;
the LORD raiseth up them that are bowed down;
the LORD loveth the righteous;
9 The LORD preserveth the strangers;
He upholdeth the fatherless and the widow;
but the way of the wicked He maketh crooked.
10 The LORD will reign for ever, thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. {N}
Hallelujah.

Psalms Chapter 147

1 Hallelujah; {N}
for it is good to sing praises unto our God;
for it is pleasant, and praise is comely.
2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem, He gathereth together the dispersed of Israel;
3 Who healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
4 He counteth the number of the stars;
He giveth them all their names.
5 Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;
His understanding is infinite.
6 The LORD upholdeth the humble;
He bringeth the wicked down to the ground.
7 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving, sing praises upon the harp unto our God;
8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, {N}
who maketh the mountains to spring with grass.
9 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse;
He taketh no pleasure in the legs of a man.
11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear Him, in those that wait for His mercy.
12 Glorify the LORD, O Jerusalem;
praise thy God, O Zion.
13 For He hath made strong the bars of thy gates;
He hath blessed thy children within thee.
14 He maketh thy borders peace;
He giveth thee in plenty the fat of wheat.
15 He sendeth out His commandment upon earth;
His word runneth very swiftly.
16 He giveth snow like wool;
He scattereth the hoar-frost like ashes.
17 He casteth forth His ice like crumbs;
who can stand before His cold?
18 He sendeth forth His word, and melteth them;
He causeth His wind to blow, and the waters flow.
19 He declareth His word unto Jacob, His statutes and His ordinances unto Israel.
20 He hath not dealt so with any nation;
and as for His ordinances, they have not known them. {N}
Hallelujah.
