23:10 “Speak to the Israelites and tell them, ‘When you enter the land that I am about to give to you and you gather in its harvest, 1 then you must bring the sheaf of the first portion of your harvest 2 to the priest, 23:11 and he must wave the sheaf before the Lord to be accepted for your benefit 3 – on the day after the Sabbath the priest is to wave it. 4 23:12 On the day you wave the sheaf you must also offer 5 a flawless yearling lamb 6 for a burnt offering to the Lord, 23:13 along with its grain offering, two tenths of an ephah of 7 choice wheat flour 8 mixed with olive oil, as a gift to the Lord, a soothing aroma, 9 and its drink offering, one fourth of a hin of wine. 10 23:14 You must not eat bread, roasted grain, or fresh grain until this very day, 11 until you bring the offering of your God. This is a perpetual statute throughout your generations 12 in all the places where you live.
