Numbers 28-30

Daily Offerings

28The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2Command the Israelites, and say to them: My offering, the food for my offerings by fire, my pleasing odour, you shall take care to offer to me at its appointed time. 3And you shall say to them, This is the offering by fire that you shall offer to the Lord: two male lambs a year old without blemish, daily, as a regular offering. 4One lamb you shall offer in the morning, and the other lamb you shall offer at twilight;* 5also one-tenth of an ephah of choice flour for a grain-offering, mixed with one-fourth of a hin of beaten oil. 6It is a regular burnt-offering, ordained at Mount Sinai for a pleasing odour, an offering by fire to the Lord. 7Its drink-offering shall be one-fourth of a hin for each lamb; in the sanctuary you shall pour out a drink-offering of strong drink to the Lord. 8The other lamb you shall offer at twilight* with a grain-offering and a drink-offering like the one in the morning; you shall offer it as an offering by fire, a pleasing odour to the Lord.

Sabbath Offerings

On the sabbath day: two male lambs a year old without blemish, and two-tenths of an ephah of choice flour for a grain-offering, mixed with oil, and its drink-offering— 10this is the burnt-offering for every sabbath, in addition to the regular burnt-offering and its drink-offering.

Monthly Offerings

11 At the beginnings of your months you shall offer a burnt-offering to the Lord: two young bulls, one ram, seven male lambs a year old without blemish; 12also three-tenths of an ephah of choice flour for a grain-offering, mixed with oil, for each bull; and two-tenths of choice flour for a grain-offering, mixed with oil, for the one ram; 13and one-tenth of choice flour mixed with oil as a grain-offering for every lamb—a burnt-offering of pleasing odour, an offering by fire to the Lord. 14Their drink-offerings shall be half a hin of wine for a bull, one-third of a hin for a ram, and one-fourth of a hin for a lamb. This is the burnt-offering of every month throughout the months of the year. 15And there shall be one male goat for a sin-offering to the Lord; it shall be offered in addition to the regular burnt-offering and its drink-offering.

40 *So Moses told the Israelites everything just as the Lord had commanded Moses.

Vows Made by Women

30Then Moses said to the heads of the tribes of the Israelites: This is what the Lord has commanded. 2When a man makes a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.

When a woman makes a vow to the Lord, or binds herself by a pledge, while within her father’s house, in her youth, 4and her father hears of her vow or her pledge by which she has bound herself, and says nothing to her; then all her vows shall stand, and any pledge by which she has bound herself shall stand. 5But if her father expresses disapproval to her at the time that he hears of it, no vow of hers, and no pledge by which she has bound herself, shall stand; and the Lord will forgive her, because her father had expressed to her his disapproval.

If she marries, while obligated by her vows or any thoughtless utterance of her lips by which she has bound herself, 7and her husband hears of it and says nothing to her at the time that he hears, then her vows shall stand, and her pledges by which she has bound herself shall stand. 8But if, at the time that her husband hears of it, he expresses disapproval to her, then he shall nullify the vow by which she was obligated, or the thoughtless utterance of her lips, by which she bound herself; and the Lord will forgive her. 9(But every vow of a widow or of a divorced woman, by which she has bound herself, shall be binding upon her.) 10And if she made a vow in her husband’s house, or bound herself by a pledge with an oath, 11and her husband heard it and said nothing to her, and did not express disapproval to her, then all her vows shall stand, and any pledge by which she bound herself shall stand. 12But if her husband nullifies them at the time that he hears them, then whatever proceeds out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning her pledge of herself, shall not stand. Her husband has nullified them, and the Lord will forgive her. 13Any vow or any binding oath to deny herself,* her husband may allow to stand, or her husband may nullify. 14But if her husband says nothing to her from day to day,* then he validates all her vows, or all her pledges, by which she is obligated; he has validated them, because he said nothing to her at the time that he heard of them. 15But if he nullifies them some time after he has heard of them, then he shall bear her guilt.

16 These are the statutes that the Lord commanded Moses concerning a husband and his wife, and a father and his daughter while she is still young and in her father’s house.

Psalm 49

The Folly of Trust in Riches

To the leader. Of the Korahites. A Psalm.
1 Hear this, all you peoples;
   give ear, all inhabitants of the world,
2 both low and high,
   rich and poor together.
3 My mouth shall speak wisdom;
   the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.
4 I will incline my ear to a proverb;
   I will solve my riddle to the music of the harp.


5 Why should I fear in times of trouble,
   when the iniquity of my persecutors surrounds me,
6 those who trust in their wealth
   and boast of the abundance of their riches?
7 Truly, no ransom avails for one’s life,*
   there is no price one can give to God for it.
8 For the ransom of life is costly,
   and can never suffice,
9 that one should live on for ever
   and never see the grave.*


10 When we look at the wise, they die;
   fool and dolt perish together
   and leave their wealth to others.
11 Their graves* are their homes for ever,
   their dwelling-places to all generations,
   though they named lands their own.
12 Mortals cannot abide in their pomp;
   they are like the animals that perish.


13 Such is the fate of the foolhardy,
   the end of those* who are pleased with their lot.
          Selah
14 Like sheep they are appointed for Sheol;
   Death shall be their shepherd;
straight to the grave they descend,*
   and their form shall waste away;
   Sheol shall be their home.*
15 But God will ransom my soul from the power of Sheol,
   for he will receive me.
          Selah


16 Do not be afraid when some become rich,
   when the wealth of their houses increases.
17 For when they die they will carry nothing away;
   their wealth will not go down after them.
18 Though in their lifetime they count themselves happy
   —for you are praised when you do well for yourself—
19 they* will go to the company of their ancestors,
   who will never again see the light.
20 Mortals cannot abide in their pomp;
   they are like the animals that perish.
