CHAPTER 1

Leviticus 1:1-17

Lev 1:1 And
called to Moses, and hwhy spoke to him from the Tent of Appointment, to say, 2 Speak to the Sons of Israel, and you shall say to them, If an Adam from you shall bring a Karban Offering to hwhy from the animal, from the herd, or from the flock, you shall bring ta-your Karban Offering.

3 If an Elevation Offering of his Karban Offering is from the herd, shall be a perfect male: shall bring him to the Entance of the Tent of Appointment, shall bring him for his desire to the Face of
hwhy. 4 And shall lay his hand upon the head of the Elevation Offering; and shall be accepted for him to atone upon him. 5 And shall slaughter ta-the son of the herd to the Face of hwhy: and the sons of Aaron, the Priests, they shall bring ta-the blood, and they shall sprinkle ta-the blood upon the Altar all around that is at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment, 6 and shall skin ta-the Elevation Offering and divide her to her pieces. 7 And the sons of Aaron, the Priest, shall put fire upon the Altar, and they shall arrange the wood upon the fire: 8 And the sons of Aaron, the Priests, they shall arrange ta the parts, ta-the head, and ta-the pader-fat, upon the wood that is upon the fire which is upon the Altar: 9 And his inwards and his legs shall be washed in the water: and the Priest shall burn as incense ta-the whole to the Altar: an Elevation Offering of a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy.

10 And if from the flock of his Karban Offering shall be from the lambs, or from the goats, for an Elevation Offering; shall bring a perfect male, 11 and shall slaughter him upon the side of the Altar northward to the Face of
hwhy: and the sons of Aaron, the Priests, they shall sprinkle ta-his blood upon the Altar all around. 12 And shall divide him to his parts, and ta-his head and ta-his pader-fat: and the Priest shall arrange them upon the wood that is upon the fire which is upon the Altar: 13 And shall wash the inwards and the legs in the water: and the Priests shall bring ta-the whole and burn as incense to the Altar: an Elevation Offering of a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy.

14 And if the Elevation Offering of his Karban Offering to 
hwhy shall be from the fowls, and shall bring from the turtledoves or from the sons of a dove of ta-his Karban Offering. 15 And the Priests, they shall bring to the Altar, and wring off ta-his head and burn as incense to the Altar; and shall drain his blood upon the side of the Altar: 16 And shall remove ta-his crop on her feathers, and shall cast her near the Altar eastward to the place of the ashes: 17 And shall cleave him on his wings, but shall not be separated: and the Priests shall burn him as incense to the Altar upon the wood that is upon the fire: He is an Elevation Offering of a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments).


Verses one and two

1 And called to Moses, and hwhy spoke to him from the Tent of Appointment, to say, 2 Speak to the Sons of Israel, and you shall say to them, If an Adam from you shall bring a Karban Offering to hwhy from the animal, from the herd, or from the flock, you shall bring ta-your Karban Offering.

The word "called" in the Hebrew text is
"vay-yikra"- Vav, Yod, Kuph, Resh, Aleph (arqyw), which in the English translation is "and called", but in the Hebrew text, this Hebrew word has a small "Aleph" at the end of the word.

Vay-Yikra

On www.shortvort.com on an article titled "Vayikra and the Small Aleph - Moshe's Humility (Mishlei)" by Eli Gaventa, this is what he noted from a Rashi:

"(An interesting side point is that because Moshe wanted to write Vayikar, Hashem lovingly called him close – R’Simcha Bunim offered the following insight into how one might be able to maintain our humility even if we were to reach the heights that Moshe did: “A person standing at the peak of the mountain realizes that he is not really taller than everyone else; it is the mountain that holds him high. We should recognize that our achievements are not of our own doing – Hashem holds us up and grants them to us.)".

If you want to read the whole article, you can find it at this webpage

http://www.shortvort.com/vayikra-parasha/11694-vayikra-and-the-small-aleph-moshes-humility-mishlei


Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries commented on the small Aleph in his July 2004 Yavoh magazine, under the article "The Jots and Tittles of Moses"

"The letter aleph means strength. It is a picture of an ox's head, the strongest animal they used in the ancient times. A small aleph means the opposite. Simply said, when God calls a man, the man's strength must be made small. John the Baptist said it in this way "I must be made weak, so that He can be made strong.""


I will add my comment to this, that the small Aleph in the Paleo-Hebrew is an ox, a representaion of a strong head. The small Aleph would indicate a strong little head, and this little head refers to the man, Moses, who is the "strong head" for the Israelite People, and the strong head on earth for 
hwhy. Moses, as a "strong little head", would be the symbol of Yeshua, to be the "Strong Little Head" on earth, who becomes our Strong Little Head to lead us to live for Him, so that we may be strong in Him. As the Prophet Isaiah wrote in his book

Isaiah 40:28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting Elohim, hwhy, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. 29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength. 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31 But they that wait upon hwhy shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.


According to Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, the first verse starts with the phrase "and called...", and noted that this was a continuation from Exodus chapter forty.

Looking at the word CALLED

The Hebrew word for called is "kara"- Kuph, Resh, Aleph (
arq). It is from Strong's concordance number 7121, and its definition

A primitive root (rather identical with H7122 through the idea of accosting a person met); to call out to (that is, properly address by name, but used in a wide variety of applications): - bewray [self], that are bidden, call (for, forth, self, upon), cry (unto), (be) famous, guest, invite, mention, (give) name, preach, (make) proclaim (-ation), pronounce, publish, read, renowned, say.

This is where we get our modern English word "cry" as in crying out to say, or announce something.




In verse two, the question comes to me: "What is a Karban Offering"?

Looking at the word KARBAN

The Hebrew word for Karban is "kahrbahn"- Kuph, Resh, Ben, Nun Sophit (
Nbrq). It is from Strong's Concordance number 7133, and its definition

From H7126; something brought near the altar, that is, a sacrificial present: - oblation, that is offered, offering.

from 7126 "kahrahv" (
brq), and its definition

A primitive root; to approach (causatively bring near) for whatever purpose: - (cause to) approach, (cause to) bring (forth, near), (cause to) come (near, nigh), (cause to) draw near (nigh), go (near), be at hand, join, be near, offer, present, produce, make ready, stand, take.

This is where we get our modern English word "carbon", as the burned up element of a black element, like charcoal.

This is commonly translated in the English versions as "offering". The Karban Offering is a "general present", or a "gift" offering to 
hwhy. The Karban Offering is also known as a "non-repentant", or "non-sinning atoning offering" to hwhy. In other words, it is not related to offer something based on one's own sins. Ephraim Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries calls it a "voluntary" offering. This offering is well documented in the time of Yeshua, and Yeshua used the Karban Offering in his argument against the Pharisees. It is noted in the Gospel of Mark

Mark 7:5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, Why walk not Thy disciples according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashen hands? 6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. 7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 8 For laying aside the Commandment of hwhy, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. 9 And He said unto them, Full well ye reject the Commandment of hwhy, that ye may keep your own tradition. 10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso curseth father or mother, let him die the death: 11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is Corban [Karban Offering], that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; he shall be free. 12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother; 13 Making the Word of hwhy of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

Looking at the Brith Khadashah word CORBON

The Greek word for Corbon is "kohr-bahn" (korban), It is from Strong's Concordance number 2878, and its definition

Of Hebrew and Chaldee origin respectively [H7133]; a votive offering and the offering; a consecrated present (to the Temple fund); by extension (the latter term) the Treasury itself, that is, the room where the contribution boxes stood: - Corban, treasury.

This Gospel account Yeshua noted
shows us that the basic understanding of the Karban Offering is a "gift" in this week's Torah portion passage.

There is another account of the Karban Offering that 
hwhy revealed to me recenty, and it's in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. 23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the Altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the Altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

Though it doesn't say it, this gift is a Karban Offering.

In this week's Torah portion passage, the other Hebrew word "kahrav" is applied in this verse two which is translated as "bring", but in the Hebrew text, it is "kahreev", with a Yod (byrq)

2 Speak to the Sons of Israel, and you shall say to them, If an Adam from you shall bring (byrq) a Karban Offering (Nbrq) to hwhy from the animal, from the herd, or from the flock, you shall bring (byrq) ta-your Karban Offering.



Verse three

3 If an Elevation Offering of his Karban Offering is from the herd, shall be a perfect male: shall bring him to the Entance of the Tent of Appointment, shall bring him for his desire to the Face of hwhy.

hwhy reveals to us that the Karban Offerings, the non-sinning offerings, are Elevation Offerings

Looking at the word ELEVATION OFFERING

The Hebrew word for elevation is "oh-lah"- Ayin, Lamed, Heh (hle). It is from Strong's Concordance number 5930, and its definition

Feminine active participle of H5927; a step or (collectively stairs, as ascending); usually a holocaust (as going up in smoke): - ascent, burnt offering (sacrifice), go up to. See also H5766.

from 5927 "ah-lah" (
hle), and its definition

A primitive root; to ascend, intransitively (be high) or active (mount); used in a great variety of senses, primary and secondary, literally and figuratively: - arise (up). (cause to) ascend up, at once, break [the day] (up), bring (up), (cause to) burn, carry up, cast up, + shew, climb (up), (cause to, make to) come (up), cut off, dawn, depart, exalt, excel, fall, fetch up, get up, (make to) go (away, up), grow (over), increase, lay, leap, levy, lift (self) up, light, [make] up, X mention, mount up, offer, make to pay, + perfect, prefer, put (on), raise, recover, restore, (make to) rise (up), scale, set (up), shoot forth (up), (begin to) spring (up), stir up, take away (up), work.

This is where get our modern English word "elevate".


Also, the Elevation Offering is a Fire Offering, as we will see throughout the different Elevation Offerings in this chapter.


According to Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, the Elevation Offering is based on one's affordabilaty by giving the best offering they can afford. In other words, a rich person can afford a bullock- the most wealthy animal of livestock, wheras a poor person cannot.

I give credit to Mark Biltz for revealing these. This is the pre-existing accounts of the Karban Offerings of Elevation Offerings, which are Fire Offerings. One was done by Abel in the Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 4:1 And the Adam knew ta-Khavah, his wife; and she conceived, and she birthed ta-Cain, and she said, I have gotten a man of ta-hwhy. 2 And she again by birthing ta-his brother ta-Abel. And Abel became a shepherd of flocks, and Cain became a tiller of the ground. 3 And was from the end of days, and Cain brought from the fruit of the ground a Food Offering to hwhy. 4 and Abel, he also brought from the firstlings of his flocks and from their kheylev-fat.

Though it doesn't say it, what Abel did was a Karban Offering which is an Elevation Offering, a type of Fire Offering, to 
hwhy.

Noah, after the flood, offered a Karban Offering, an Elevation Offering, and it is noted in the Torah portion of Noakh, in the book of Genesis.

Genesis 8:14 And in the second month, in the seven and twentieth day of the month, the earth was dry, 15 and Elohim spoke to Noah, to say, 16 Go out from the ark, you, and your wife, and your sons, and the wives of your sons with you. 17 Every beast that is with you, from all flesh, among birds, and among cattle, and among all creepers that creep upon the earth, bring out with you; and they will breed among the earth, and fructify, and multiply upon the earth. 18 And Noah went out, and his sons, and his wife, and the wives of his sons with him: 19 all the beasts, and all the creepers, and all the birds, all creeping upon the earth, went out from the ark by their families. 20 And Noah built an altar to hwhy; and took from all the clean animals, and from all the clean birds, and elevated Elevation Offerings on the altar. 21 And hwhy smelled ta-a pleasant scent; and hwhy said in His heart, I will not again to curse ta-the ground any more for the Adam's sake; for the imagination of the Adam's heart is evil from his youth; and I will not again to smite any more ta-all of the living as I have done. 22 While all the days of the earth, of seedtime and of harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Another Karban Offering, an Elevation Offering, was done by Abraham when he was told to sacrifice his son, Isaac, at Mount Moriah, as noted in the Torah portion of Vay-Yeyra, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 22:1 And was after these things, and the Elohim tested ta-Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, I. 2 And said, Take now ta-your son, ta-your only one whom you love, ta-Isaac, and go of you to the land of the Moriah; and elevate him there for an Elevation Offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell to you. 3 And Abraham rose early in the morning, and saddled ta-his donkey, and took  ta-two of his young men with him, and ta Isaac his son, and broke up the wood of the Elevation Offering, and rose, and went to the place of which the Elohim had said to him. 4 In the third day, and Abraham lifted ta-his eyes, and saw ta-the place from a distance. 5 And Abraham said to his young men, Dwell of you here with the donkey; and I and the young man, we will go unto thus, and we will worship, and we will return to you. 6 And Abraham took ta-the wood of the Elevation Offering, and was laid upon Isaac, his son; and took ta-the fire, and ta-the knife in his hand; and they went, the two of them, together. 7 And Isaac spoke to Abraham his father, and said, My father: and said, Behold I, my son. And said, Behold the fire and the wood: and where is the lamb for the Elevation Offering? 8 And Abraham said, Elohim will see for Himself the lamb for the Elevation Offering, my son: and they went, the two of them together. 9And they came to the place which the Elohim said to him; and Abraham built there ta-the altar, and arranged ta-the wood, and bound ta-Isaac, his son, and placed him upon the altar from upon the wood. 10 And Abraham stretched out ta-his hand, and took ta-the knife to kill ta-his son. 11 And the messenger of hwhy called to him from the heavens, and said, Abraham, Abraham!: and said, Behold I. 12 And said, Do you not strech out your hand upon the young man, and you not do to him any thing: for now I know that you a fearer of Elohim, and you have not withheld ta-your son, ta-your only one from Me. 13 And Abraham lifted ta-his eyes, and looked, and behold, a ram, behind, was caught in a thicket among his horns: and Abraham went and took ta-the ram, and elevated him for an Elevation Offering instead of his son. 14 And Abraham called the name of his place Yehowah Yireh: which is said today, shall be seen in the Mount of hwhy.



This week's Torah portion chapters shows the various Karban Offerings, which are also Elevation Offerings that are Fire Offerings. All of the offerings are placed on the Copper Altar. The Copper Altar is noted in the Torah portion of T'rumah, in the book of Genesis


THE COPPER ALTAR

Exodus 27:1 And you will make ta-the Altar of shittim wood, five cubits long, and five cubits wide; the Altar shall be square: and three cubits shall be his height. 2 And you shall make his horns upon his four corners: from him, they shall be his horns: and you will overlay him of copper.

THE SYMBOLIC MEANINGS OF THE COPPER ALTAR

Shittim Wood: Man, also could be Scourging and Piercing and Lashing
Copper: Humanity, Man, Judgment, Suffering-(source: maranathalife.com)

The Copper Altar, in U.S. measurements is 8 1/2 feet long, 8 1/2 feet wide and 4 1/2 feet high.

THE COPPER ALTAR'S UTENSILS

Exodus 27:3 And you will make his pans for his removal, and his shovels, and his basins, and his fleshhooks, and his firepans: all his vessels, you will make of copper.

THE SYMBOLIC MEANINGS OF THE COPPER ALTAR'S UTENSILS

Copper: Man, Judgment, Suffering-(source: maranathalife.com)

This is symbolized of Yeshua's act to use His utensils to clean out  the "soot" and "ashes" of the Pharisees, Sadducees, scribes and lawyers from their "false doctrine" of man.


This is a an image of the possible item patterns of the utensils for the Copper Altar

Copper Altar Utensils



THE COPPER ALTAR GRILL

Exodus 27:4 And you will make for him a grill (grate), a work of netting, of copper; and upon the net, you will make four rings of copper upon his four corners. 5 And you will put her under the rim of the Altar from of beneath, and the net shall be unto halfway of the altar. 6 And you will make poles for the Altar, poles of shittim wood, and you will overlay them of copper. 7 And ta-his poles shall go in the rings, and the poles, they shall be upon the two sides of the Altar, in carrying him. 8 Hollow polished boards you will make him: as which that was shown you on the mountain, so shall be made.

THE SYMBOLIC MEANINGS OF THE COPPER ALTAR GRILL

Shittim Wood: Man, also could be Scourging and Piercing and Lashing
Copper: Humanity, Man, Judgment, Suffering-(source: maranathalife.com)

Based on the measurements of the Copper Altar,
it is, in U.S. measurements, almost 8 1/2 feet long, 8 1/2 feet wide

This is like is criss-cross grill, like the grill on a barbecue grill to let the ashes of the sacrifice fall through. This is symbolic of Yeshua in an act to "filter" out the doctrine of man via
the Pharisees, Sadducees, scribes and lawyers from their "false doctrine" of man.

This is a possible pattern of the Copper Altar with the grill and the poles


Copper Altar


The purpose of the blood sprinkled around the Copper Altar is a representation of having the blood cover our sins of our suffering and to cover our mortal bodies, for copper represents suffering and man. This is an act of Yeshua covering our body by His blood for our sins.


This is the Copper Altar where all the various sacrifices will be made.



Looking into the various Karban Offerings, which are the Elevation Offerings, throughout this chapter:

Verses three through nine

3 If an Elevation Offering of his Karban Offering is from the herd, shall be a perfect male: shall bring him to the Entance of the Tent of Appointment, shall bring him for his desire to the Face of hwhy. 4 And shall lay his hand upon the head of the Elevation Offering; and shall be accepted for him to atone upon him. 5 And shall slaughter ta-the son of the herd to the Face of hwhy: and the sons of Aaron, the Priests, they shall bring ta-the blood, and they shall sprinkle ta-the blood upon the Altar all around that is at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment, 6 and shall skin ta-the Elevation Offering and divide her to her pieces. 7 And the sons of Aaron, the Priest, shall put fire upon the Altar, and they shall arrange the wood upon the fire: 8 And the sons of Aaron, the Priests, they shall arrange ta the parts, ta-the head, and ta-the pader-fat, upon the wood that is upon the fire which is upon the Altar: 9 And his inwards and his legs shall be washed in the water: and the Priest shall burn as incense ta-the whole to the Altar: an Elevation Offering of a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy.

A: A PERFECT MALE OF THE HERD OF HIS DESIRE

1. Take it to the Entrance of Tent of Appointment.
2. Put his hand on it and be accepted for atonement.
3. The man kills it in front of Aaron's sons.
4. Aaron's sons bring the blood to the Altar and sprinkle it around it.
5. The man skins it and cuts it to pieces.
6. Aaron's sons put wood on the Altar and makes a fire.
7. Aaron's sons arrange the head, parts, and pader-fat on the wood.
8. Its innards and legs are washed in water.
9. The Priests burn it as incense on the Altar.

NOTES
*It is Aaron's sons that does the majority of the work.

*The man does the killing, the cutting and the washing.
*The priests that burns it is not mentioned as Aaron's sons.


Looking at the word PADER-FAT

The Hebrew word for pader-fat is "pader"- Peh, Dalet, Resh (
rdp). It is from the Strong's Concordance number 6309, and its definition

From an unused root meaning to be greasy; suet: - fat.

This is where we get our modern English word "butter".

This is the fat in general on an animal. It does not specify the areas where the fat is located as compared to the other kind of fat, which we will see later in this week's Torah portion.


Looking at the word FIRE OFFERING

The Hebrew word for Fire Offering is "eeshah"- Aleph, Shin, Heh (
hsa). It is from Strong's Concordance number 801, and its definition

The same as H800, but used in a liturgical sense; properly a burnt offering; but occasionally of any sacrifice: - (offering, sacrifice), (made) by fire.

from 800 "eshah"
(hsa), and its definition

Feminine of H784; fire: - fire.

from 784 "eysh" (sa), and its definition

A primitive word; fire (literally or figuratively): - burning, fiery, fire, flaming, hot.

This is where we get our modern English word "ash".

It was neccessary for the animal to be burned in the fire. For us in Messiah, the Fire Offering represents "a purifying process" to be symbolically "cleansed" from our own sins, and be sinless in our Heavenly Father's eyes.

Indirectly related, the Apostle Paul noted that they who do their own works will meet Yeshua will have their works on earth tried in the fire. He wrote this
in his letter to the assembly in Corinth

1 Corinthians 3:12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

In relation with the Fire Offering to purify one's own sin, this fire is an act to reveal the works of man whether they were godly or worldly, and this act in this Epistle passage will purify the works by destroying the worldly acts through the items noted, which in today's society would be the worldly materials.




Verses ten through thirteen

10 And if from the flock of his Karban Offering shall be from the lambs, or from the goats, for an Elevation Offering; shall bring a perfect male, 11 and shall slaughter him upon the side of the Altar northward to the Face of hwhy: and the sons of Aaron, the Priests, they shall sprinkle ta-his blood upon the Altar all around. 12 And shall divide him to his parts, and ta-his head and ta-his pader-fat: and the Priest shall arrange them upon the wood that is upon the fire which is upon the Altar: 13 And shall wash the inwards and the legs in the water: and the Priests shall bring ta-the whole and burn as incense to the Altar: an Elevation Offering of a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy.

B: FROM THE FLOCK- A PERFECT MALE FROM THE LAMBS OR THE GOATS OF HIS DESIRE

This is the same format as the son of the herd, but the man kills it on the north side of the Altar.

NOTES:
*These are the only animals mentioned to be placed on a certain side of the altar- the east side.

This is a similar offering that hwhy allowed Abraham to use a ram, an adult sheep, in the Elevation Offering as I sourced earlier. hwhy did not require a ram in the Commandment. This is an idea what an Elevation Offering gift is like back in the day.

Question: "W
hy was the son of the lamb or the goats killed on the East side of the Altar of Copper? Was it because it was related to the fact that the lamb or the kid was first sacrificed in general which was the Passover sacrifice"? If this is so, the other purpose of the East is symbolic of the times of old, or first times, which in this case the lamb or the kid of the goat was the first sacrifice in times of old. That is why the sheep and the goat was killed on the East side.

Also, it can be said that the lamb or the kid was facing the Altar from the East toward which they would be killed toward the Tabernacle. This is the same situation that Yeshua faced when He was crucified at the cross looking toward the Temple from the Mount of Olives from the East side, which was the entrance side.



Verses fourteen through seventeen

14 And if the Elevation Offering of his Karban Offering to hwhy shall be from the fowls, and shall bring from the turtledoves or from the sons of a dove of ta-his Karban Offering. 15 And the Priests, they shall bring to the Altar, and wring off ta-his head and burn as incense to the Altar; and shall drain his blood upon the side of the Altar: 16 And shall remove ta-his crop on her feathers, and shall cast her near the Altar eastward to the place of the ashes: 17 And shall cleave him on his wings, but shall not be separated: and the Priests shall burn him as incense to the Altar upon the wood that is upon the fire: He is an Elevation Offering of a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy.

C: FOWLS- FROM THE TWO TURTLEDOVES OR THE SONS OF THE DOVE OF HIS DESIRE

1. Priests takes it to the Altar.
2. A Priest wrings its neck.
3. A Priest burns its head as incense on the Altar.
4. A Priest lets its blood drain over the side of the Altar.
5. A Priest removes its crop and feathers
6. A Priest throws them near the East side of the altar
7. A Priest holds its plucked feathers without dividing it.
8. A Priest burns it as incense on the wood on the Altar.

NOTES:
*The crop of the bird is feminine, not the feathers. The crop is thrown at the side of the Altar.
*Instead of the fowl's head burning with the rest of its body, it is burnt first, separately, from the rest of the body.



SYMBOLIC MEANING OF THE HERD/FLOCK/FOWLS

Herd/Flock/Fowl: Yeshua


Regarding the Karban Offering in giving the best of one's gift of this chapter, Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries related it to this account of Yeshua talking about one giving the gift to the Altar who had another brother that had ought with him, which is mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 5:23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the Altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; 24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

Monte Judah had a personal experience regarding two brothers during Monte's own Sukkoth gathering (a great program) at Bell Cow Lake, in Chandler, OK in 2015. Brother No. 1 wanted to get right with Brother No. 2, so he talked to him to get right with him, and gave him a bottle of wine as a gift. Later on, Brother No. 2 went to Monte and also gave him a bottle of wine as a gift. Brother No. 1 went to Monte and told him what he did to Brother No. 2 by giving him his favorite wine to him as a gift, then Monte told him what Brother No. 2 did to him. The two figured out that Brother No. 2, in many words, "rejected" Brother No. 1's gift and gave it to Monte, thus, according to Monte, "devalued" the gift. Monte had nothing to do with the bottle of wine, after he found out the story. Thank you Monte for that testimony. Also Monte Judah of noted that the value of the gift is based by the "giver", and not the one who received the gift. Monte also stated when the Heavenly Father gave Yeshua as "the Gift" to the world, He gave a valuable gift that was priceless. Also, the book of Hebrews recalled the account of Abel giving a more pleasing gift to hwhy than Cain

Hebrews 11:4 By faith Abel offered unto hwhy a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, hwhy testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

which is the account taken from the book of Genesis, in the Torah portion of B'reyshith, as I noted earlier.

By the way, anyone know why Cain's offering was not accepted by hwhy? I'll give you a hint. It is like the devalued gift from Brother No. 2 to Monte. It is mentioned ealier in the Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 3:17 And to the Adam, said, Because you listened to the voice of your wife, and you ate from the tree which I commanded you, to say, You shall not eat from him: cursed is the ground on your account; You shall eat her in sorrow all the days of your life; 18 And thorns and thistles, she shall bring forth to you; and you shall eat ta-the herbs of the field; 19 You shall eat bread among the sweat of your face until you return to the ground; for from her you were taken: for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.

If you were 
hwhy, would you accept, by someone, a gift from something that you "cursed"? No, you would not. That is why Cain's gift was not accepted nor respected. Don't forget that this occurred before the worldwide flood.

hwhy, you shall bring for the Food (Grain) Offering of your Firstfruits aviv ears of kernels of a planted field roasted on the fire. 15 And you shall put oil upon her, and you shall set frankincense upon her: she is a Food (Grain) Offering. 16 And the Priests shall burn ta-her Memorial Offering as incense from her kernels, and from her oil upon all her frankincense: shall be a Fire Offering to hwhy.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments).


The Karban Offerings of this chapter is the Food (Grain) Offering. The Food (Grain) Offering is commonly translated as "the Meat Offering",
but it commonly known in Messianic/Hebraic Roots and Jewish sources as "the Grain Offering". As we will also see in this chapter, each of the Food (Grain) Offering is also called a Memorial Offering. Also in this chapter, one will see that each of the Food (Grain)/Memorial Offerings require salt. This is also a Fire Offering. These Karban Offerings are also non-atonement offerings.

Looking at the following words:

FOOD (GRAIN) OFFERING


The Hebrew word for Food Offering is "meenkhah"- Mem, Nun, Khet, Heh (
hxnm). It is from Strong's Concordance number 4503, and its definition

From an unused root meaning to apportion, that is, bestow; a donation; euphemistically tribute; specifically a sacrificial offering (usually bloodless and voluntary): - gift, oblation, (meat) offering, present, sacrifice.

This is where we get our modern English word "munch", in relation to "munching" on "food".


MEMORIAL OFFERING

The Hebrew word for Memorial Offering is "ahz-kahrah"- Aleph, Zayin, Kaph, Resh, Heh (hrkza). It is from Strong's Concordance number 234, and its definition

From H2142; a reminder; specifically remembrance offering: - memorial.


from 2142 "zah-khar" (
rkz), and its definition

A primitive root; properly to mark (so as to be recognized), that is, to remember; by implication to mention; also (as denominative from H2145) to be male: -  X burn [incense], X earnestly, be male, (make) mention (of), be mindful, recount, record (-er), remember, make to be remembered, bring (call, come, keep, put) to (in) remembrance, X still, think on, X well.

Verses eleven and twelve

11 Any of the Food (Grain) Offering that you shall bring to hwhy, you shall not make leaven: for you shall not burn any sourdough or any honey as incense from him of a Fire Offering to hwhy. 12 You shall bring them of a Karban Offering of Firstfruits to hwhy: and they shall not be ascended to the Altar for a pleasant scent.

Question: "Why was the Food (Grain) Offering is not to be of leavened bread of sourdough or honey"? Because one: sourdough is represented as "sin", and Yeshua is the representation of "the One with no sin". If it had leavened of sourdough, it would symbolize that Yeshua had sin, and would disqualify Him as the Savior of the World. Yeshua, as noted in times before, mentioned to not give in to the "leaven" of the Pharisees which was their doctrine. Two: as best as I can figure out, honey is generally "sweet", and none of the Food (Grain) Offerings contain sweet ingredients. Yeshua, the Living Word, did not come to the world to be "sweet", which would symbolize someone giving "sweet nothings' in one's ear, but to speak the "plain truth".

Rico Cortes of Wisdom in Torah Ministries noted that the reason honey and leavened bread [sourdough] was not part of the fire offering, because the Egyptians used them for their pagan elohim.

Looking at the followig words:

LEAVEN

The Hebrew word for leaven is "khah-meyts"- Khet, Mem, Tsade Sophit (
Umx). It is from Strong's Concordance number 2557, and its definition

From H2556; ferment, (figuratively) extortion: - leaven, leavened (bread).


from 2556 "khah-meyts" (
Umx), and its definition

A primitive root; to be pungent; that is, in taste (sour, that is, literally fermented, or figuratively harsh), in color (dazzling): - cruel (man), dyed, be grieved, leavened.


SOURDOUGH

The Hebrew word for sourdough is "s'ohr"- Shin, Aleph, Resh (
ras). It is from Strong's Concordance number 7603, and its definition

From H7604; barm or yeast cake (as swelling by fermentation): - leaven.

from 7604 "sha'ar" (
ras), and its definition

A primitive root; properly to swell up, that is, be (causatively make) redundant: - leave, (be) left, let, remain, remnant, reserve, the rest.

This is where we get our modern English word "sour" for "sourdough".




Verse thirteen

13 And every Karban Offering of your Food (Grain) Offering, you shall season in the salt; and you shall not cease the Salt of the Covenant of your Elohim upon your Food (Grain) Offering: you shall bring salt upon all your Karban Offerings.

The Salt of the Covenant is a symbolic act to "preserve life" in us through the Messiah, as well as to be symbolically "seasoned" by the Word of hwhy.

Looking at the word SALT

The Hebrew word for salt is "meh-lakh"- Mem, Lamed, Khet (
xlm). It is from Strong's Concordance number 4417, and its definition

From H4414; properly powder, that is, (specifically) salt (as easily pulverized and dissolved): - salt ([-pit]).

from 4414 "mah-lakh" (
xlm), and its definition

A primitive root; properly to rub to pieces or pulverize; intransitively to disappear as dust; also (as denominative from H4417) to salt whether internally (to season with salt) or externally (to rub with salt): -    X at all, salt, season, temper together, vanish away.

This is a type and shadow of Yeshua being "the Salt" that came down to earth, and Yeshua being the Unleavend Bread" who is seasoned with salt, as well as being "the Seasoner".

Yeshua told us to be the salt of the earth, as He noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Yeshua also related this week's Torah portion passage of the Salt of the Covenant in the Gospel of Mark

Mark 9:38 And John answered Him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in Thy Name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. 39 But Yeshua said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in My Name, that can lightly speak evil of Me. 40 For he that is not against us is on our part. 41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in My Name, because ye belong to Messiah, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. 42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in Me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. 43 And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the Kingdom of hwhy with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: 48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 49 For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 50 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

In other words, we as believers in Yeshua, are to be seasoned with the "Salt of the Messiah".


Indirectly related, we in Yeshua, are to be a living sacrifice in order to receive "the Salt of Messiah". The apostle Paul noted that we are to be a living sacrifice to 
hwhy, as he wrote in his letter  to the assembly in Rome. I give Bill Cloud from Shoreshim Ministries the credit, for making note of this source

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of hwhy, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto hwhy, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of hwhy.



Verses fourteen through sixteen

14 And if you shall bring a Food (Grain) Offering of Firstfruits to hwhy, you shall bring for the Food (Grain) Offering of your Firstfruits aviv ears of kernels of a planted field roasted on the fire. 15 And you shall put oil upon her, and you shall set frankincense upon her: she is a Food (Grain) Offering. 16 And the Priests shall burn ta-her Memorial Offering as incense from her kernels, and from her oil upon all her frankincense: shall be a Fire Offering to hwhy.

THE FOOD (GRAIN) OFFERING OF THE FIRSTFRUITS

1. Aviv ears of kernels of a planted field roasted in fire.
2. Roasted aviv ears poured on Oil.
3. Lay frankincense on it.
4. All of it burned in the fire.


THE SYMBOLS OF THE FOOD (GRAIN) OFFERING OF THE FIRSTFRUITS:


Aviv Ears: Softened Heart/Broken And Contrite Heart


This is the only Food (Grain) Offering that is not left over for the Priests to eat.


The Aviv grain is not completely mature grain


Looking at the word AVIV

The Hebrew word for aviv ears is "ah-veev"- Aleph, Bet, Yod, Bet (
byba) is from Strong's Concordance number 24, and its definition

From an unused root (meaning to be tender); green, that is a young ear of grain; hence the name of the month Abib or Nisan: - Abib, ear, green ears of corn.

The "www.new2torah.com" website also states that it is in a "...green or young ear of grain..." stage.

This is what Nehemiah Gordon of Nehemiah's Wall and Biblical Foundations Academy International noted on his article "Aviv Barley on the Biblical Calendar" on his Nehemiah's Wall webpage

"While still early in its development, barley has not yet produced large enough and firm enough seeds to produce food through parching. This early in its development, when the "head" has just come out of the shaft, the seeds are not substantial enough to produce any food. At a later stage, the seeds have grown in size and have filled with liquid. At this point the seeds will shrivel up when parched and will only produce empty skins. Over time the liquid is replaced with dry material and when enough dry material has amassed the seeds will be able to yield "barley parched in fire....

In summation, barley which is in the state of Aviv has 3 characteristics:

  1. It is brittle enough to be destroyed by hail and has begun to lighten in color (it is not "dark").
  2. The seeds have produced enough dry material so it can be eaten parched.
  3. It has developed enough so that it will be harvest-ready 2-3 weeks later".

These are image examples of the barley grain in the aviv stage

Aviv Stage
Aviv Barley

Aviv Stage


This is mostly related to the occurrance in the Winter time of the flax, the Spring time of the Barley Harvest near the Feast of the Unleavened Bread, and the early Summer time of the Wheat Harvest near the Feast Shavuoth (Pentecost).

A question came to me: "Why did hwhy allow the aviv ears and not ripened ears to be burned on the Altar for the firstfruits"? I do not the answer at this time.



Regarding this Torah portion chapter, an example of the use of a Food (Grain) Offering after Torah times was done by Menoah, the future mother of Samson, and it is noted in the book of Judges

Judges 13:10 And the woman made haste, and ran, and shewed her husband, and said unto him, Behold, the Man hath appeared unto me, that came unto me the other day. 11 And Manoah arose, and went after his wife, and came to the man, and said unto Him, Art thou the Man that spakest unto the woman? And he said, I am. 12 And Manoah said, Now let thy words come to pass. How shall we order the child, and how shall we do unto him? 13 And the Messenger of hwhy said unto Manoah, Of all that I said unto the woman let her beware. 14 She may not eat of any thing that cometh of the vine, neither let her drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing: all that I commanded her let her observe. 15 And Manoah said unto the Messenger of hwhy, I pray Thee, let us detain Thee, until we shall have made ready a kid of the goats for Thee. 16 And the Messenger of hwhy said unto Manoah, Though thou detain me, I will not eat of thy bread: and if thou wilt elevate an Elevation Offering, thou must offer it unto hwhy. For Manoah knew not that he was a Messenger of hwhy. 17 And Manoah said unto the Messenger of hwhy, What is Thy Name, that when Thy sayings come to pass we may do Thee honour? 18 And the Messenger of hwhy said unto him, Why askest thou thus after My Name, seeing it is secret? 19 So Manoah took ta-a kid of the goats with ta-a Food (Grain) Offering, and offered it upon a rock unto hwhy: and the Messenger did wondrously; and Manoah and his wife looked on. 20 For it came to pass, when the flame went up toward the heavens from off the altar, that the Messenger of hwhy ascended in the flame of the altar. And Manoah and his wife looked on it, and fell on their faces to the ground.

Menoah also used the Elevation Offering from chapter one.



Indirectly related, in the part of the Priests taking the rest of the flour, or cooked bread, Yeshua revealed that He is the grain and has to die to produce many grains, as noted in the Gospel of John

John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a kernel of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.

When we as believers received Him in our hearts, we partake of Him and become part of that grain, like the Priests partaking the remainder of the Food (Grain) Offering.




THE SYMBOLIC MEANINGS TO THE FOOD (GRAIN) OFFERING

Unleavened Flour: Yeshua
Oil: The Ruakh HaKodesh
Frankincense: Prayers of the Saints
Salt: Flavor Of Righteousness/Preservation Of Life (source: bibletools.org)

(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


The Peace Offerings are also Karban Offerings, which are also Fire Offerings. These are also non-atonement required offerings.

Looking at the word PEACE OFFERING

The Hebrew word for Peace Offering is "sh'lahmeem"- Shin, Lamed, Mem, Yod, Mem Sophit (
Mymls). It is from Strong's Concordance number 8002 "shelem" (Mls), and its definition

From H7999; properly requital, that is, a (voluntary) sacrifice in thanks: - peace offering.

from 7999 "shalam" (
Mls), and its definition

A primitive root; to be safe (in mind, body or estate); figuratively to be (causatively make) completed; by implication to be friendly; by extension to reciprocate (in various applications): - make amends, (make an) end, finish, full, give again, make good, (re-) pay (again), (make) (to) (be at) peace (-able), that is perfect, perform, (make) prosper (-ous), recompense, render, requite, make restitution, restore, reward, X surely.

In the Hebrew text, it is "sh'lameem", and it written many times in the Tanakh. This should have been a separate, independant reference word in the Strong's concordance, as "meekhoots" (
Uwxm) and "m'adam" (Mdam).

g. Bread of the Fire Offering- a.k.a. Leavened Bread from Leviticus 7:13 (Male and female of the flock and male goat only).

NOTES:
*The goat is not shown to be required to be perfect.
*The Bread of the Fire Offering is not specifically mentioned regarding the herd.



The three parts mentioned in the bullock: the kheylev-fat, the caul (lobe) of the liver, and the two kidneys.


Looking at the following words:

THE KHEYLEV-FAT

The Hebrew word for kheylev-fat is "kheylev"- Khet, Lamed, Bet (
blx). It is from Strong's Concordance number 2459, and its definition

From an unused root meaning to be fat; fat, whether literally or figuratively; hence the richest or choice part: -    X best, fat (-ness), X finest, grease, marrow.

This is where we get our modern English word "club". Anyone heard of a "club sandwich"? It is a "fat" sandwich.

It also means internal fatness of blessing. The Hebrew word for marrow is "kheylev"

Psalms 63:5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:



THE CAUL (LOBE)

The Hebrew word for caul (lobe) is "y
othereth"- Yod, Tav, Resh, Tav (trty). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3508, and it definition

Feminine active participle of H3498; the lobe or flap of the liver (as if redundant or outhanging): - caul.

from 3498 "yathar" (
rty), and its definition

A primitive root; to jut over or exceed; by implication to excel; (intransitively) to remain or be left; causatively to leave, cause to abound, preserve: - excel, leave (a remnant), left behind, too much, make plenteous, preserve, (be, let) remain (-der, -ing, -nant), reserve, residue, rest.


On the dictionary.com website, the caul, according to Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary says this


(Heb.
yothe'reth; i.e., "something redundant"), the membrane which covers the upper part of the liver (Ex. 29:13, 22; Lev.3:4, 10, 15; 4:9; 7:4; marg.,"midriff"). In Hos. 13:8 (Heb. seghor; i.e., "an enclosure") the pericardium, or parts about the heart,is meant.



THE KIDNEYS

The Hebrew word for kidneys is "keelyah" (singular)- Kaph, Lamed, Yod, Heh (
hylk). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3629, and its definition

Feminine of H3627 (only in the plural); a kidney (as an essential organ); figuratively the mind (as the interior self): - kidneys, reins.

from 3627 "k'lee" (
ylk), and its definition

From H3615; something prepared, that is, any apparatus (as an implement, utensil, dress, vessel or weapon): - armour ([-bearer]), artillery, bag, carriage, + furnish, furniture, instrument, jewel, that is made of, X one from another, that which pertaineth, pot, + psaltery, sack, stuff, thing, tool, vessel, ware, weapon, + whatsoever.

from 3615 "kalah" (
hlk) and its definition

A primitive root; to end, whether intransitively (to cease, be finished, perish) or transitively (to complete, prepare, consume): - accomplish, cease, consume (away), determine, destroy (utterly), be (when . . . were) done, (be an) end (of), expire, (cause to) fail, faint, finish, fulfil, X fully, X have, leave (off), long, bring to pass, wholly reap, make clean riddance, spend, quite take away, waste.

To a human, the kidneys in general represent the seat of the emotions.

IT JUST HIT ME!!!


There are three items here being separated, and it is probable that it relates to these three areas:

THE KHEYLAV FAT

This is fat. The brain also contains fat. Each organ has a "mind" of its own, and the fat is connected to them, which is the result of the organs. It is probable that the Kheylev Fat is symbolized by the brain, which is fat, and it is related to the MIND.


THE CAUL (LOBE)

This is connected to the liver, which represents strength, and it is probable that the caul (lobe) relates to the WILL.

THE TWO KIDNEYS

It is well known that the kidneys relates to the EMOTIONS.

These three items represents the three parts of the SOUL:

THE MIND
THE EMOTIONS
AND THE WILL


hwhyl dbk


When someone sins, it is caused by the WILL, and when a sacrifice is made for an Israelite, it is an act to get the WILL back in line with 
hwhy and restore the WILL's relationship in one's resubmission to hwhy.



In this chapter, in relating the kidneys, it says in verses four, ten and fifteen

...and ta-the kheylev-fat which is upon them,...

 The Hebrew phrase for upon them is "aleyhehn"- Ayin, Lamed, Heh, Nun Sophit (
Nhle). The Hey and Nun in the end (Nh) tells us that the pronoun is feminine plural, which means that the kheylev-fat is feminine.



QUESTIONS:

Why is the Bread of the Fire Offering only mentioned in the offering of the male and female of the flock, and the male goat and not the male and female herd? The only thing I could figure out that it was applied in the herd, but it wasn't first specified when it should have been and was noted on the other two types of animals.







CHAPTER 4

Leviticus 4:1-35

Lev 4:1 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 2 Speak to the Sons of Israel, to say; If a soul, she sins in ignorance from any of the Commandments of hwhy which she should not to do, and does one of them:

3 If the Priest of the anointed sins to make the People guilty; and shall bring upon his sin which was sinned a perfect bullock, a son of a herd, to 
hwhy for a Sin Offering. 4 And shall bring ta-the bullock to the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment to the Face of hwhy; and shall lay ta-his hand upon the head of the bullock, and slaughter ta-the bullock to the Face of hwhy. 5 And the Priest of the anointed shall take from the blood of the bullock, and bring him to the Tent of Appointment: 6 And the Priest shall dip ta-his finger in the blood, and sprinkle from the blood seven times to the Face of hwhy of ta-the face of the Veil of the Sanctuary. 7 And the Priest shall put from the blood upon the Horns of the Altar of the Incense of Spices to the Face of hwhy which is in the Tent of Appointment; and shall pour out ta all the blood of the bullock to the Base of the Altar of the Elevation Offering which is at the Entrance of the Tent of Appoinment. 8 And from him shall lift up ta all the kheylev-fat of the bullock of the Sin Offering; ta-the kheylev-fat that covers upon the inwards, and ta all the kheylev-fat which is upon the inwards, 9 and ta the two kidneys, and ta-the kheylev-fat which is upon them which is upon the loins, and ta-the caul (fold) upon the liver upon the kidneys, shall remove her, 10 as which is offered up with the ox of the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering: and the Priest shall burn them as incense upon the Altar of the Elevation Offering, 11 and ta-the skin of the bullock, and ta-all his flesh upon his head, and upon his legs, and his inwards, and his dung. 12 And ta-all of the bullock shall be carried forth to outside of the Camp to a clean place to empty out the ashes, and shall burn him upon the wood in the fire: and shall be burned when the ashes are emptied out.

13 And if any of the Congregation of Israel ignorantly sin, and the word (matter) shall be concealed of them from the eyes of the Assembly, and they have done one from any of the Commandments of 
hwhy which she should not do, and they are guilty; 14 And the sin shall be known which they have sinned upon her, and the Assembly shall bring a bullock for a Sin Offering, and they shall bring him to the face of the Tent of Appointment. 15 And the Elders of the Congregation, they shall lay ta-their hands upon the head of the bullock to the Face of hwhy: and shall slaughter ta-the bullock to the Face of hwhy. 16 And the Priest of the anointed shall bring the blood of the bullock to the Tent of Appointment: 17 And the Priest shall dip his finger from the blood, and shall sprinkle seven times to the Face of hwhy of ta-the face of the Veil. 18 And shall put the blood upon the Horns of the Altar which is to the Face of hwhy which is in the Tent of Appoinment, and shall pour out ta all the blood to the Base of the Altar of the Elevation Offering, which is the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment. 19 And shall lift up ta all his kheylev-fat from him, and shall burn him as incense upon the Altar. 20 And shall do to the bullock as which is done to the bullock of the Sin Offering, so shall do to him: and the Priest shall atone upon them, and shall be forgiven to them. 21 And shall bring ta-the bullock to outside of the Camp, and shall burn him as which was burned ta-the first bullock: he is a Sin Offering of the Assembly.

22 When a ruler sins, and has done one from any of the Commandments of 
hwhy his Elohim which she should not do in ignorance, and is guilty; 23 Or has been made known to him his sin, which had sinned in her; and shall bring ta-his Karban Offering a kid of the goats of a perfect male: 24 And shall lay his hand upon the head of the kid, and slaughter him in the place where they slaughter ta-the Elevation Offering to the Face of hwhy: he is a Sin Offering. 25 And the Priest shall take from the blood of the Sin Offering on his finger, and shall put upon the Horns of the Altar of the Elevation Offering, and shall pour out ta-his blood to the Base of the Altar of the Elevation Offering. 26 And shall burn as incense ta-all his kheylev-fat to the Altar as the kheylev-fat of the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering: and the Priest shall atone upon him from his sin, and shall be forgiven to him.

27 And if one soul, she sins in ignorance from the People of the land, in doing her one from the Commandments of 
hwhy concerning things which she should not do, and is guilty; 28 Or has been made known to him his sin, which had sinned: and shall bring his Karban Offering of a perfect ewe kid of the goats, a female, upon his sin which had sinned. 29 And shall lay ta-his hand upon the head of the Sin Offering, and shall slaughter ta-the Sin Offering in the place of the Elevation Offering. 30 And the Priest shall take from her blood on his finger, and put upon the Horns of the Altar of the Elevation Offering, and shall pour out ta-all her blood to the Base of the Altar. 31 And shall take ta-all her kheylev-fat, as which the kheylev-fat is removed from upon the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering; and the Priest shall burn as incense upon the Altar for a pleasant scent to hwhy; and the Priest shall atone upon him, and shall be forgiven to him.

32 And if shall bring a lamb of his Karban Offering for a Sin Offering, shall bring her a perfect female. 33 And shall lay 
ta-his hand upon the head of the Sin Offering, and shall slaughter her for a Sin Offering in the place where is slaughtered ta-the Elevation Offering. 34 And the Priest shall take blood of the Sin Offering on his finger, and put upon the Horns of the Altar of the Elevation Offering, and shall shall pour out ta-all her blood to the Base of the Altar: 35 And shall take away ta-all her kheylev-fat as which is taken away the kheylev-fat of the lamb of the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering; and the Priest shall burn them as incense to the Altar upon the Fire Offerings of hwhy: and the Priest shall atone upon him upon his sin which had sinned, and shall be forgiven to him.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)

Ephraim Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries explained best by noting that these offerings are for those who "unintentionally sinned" and didn't know until after they were told.

Verses one and two

1 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 2 Speak to the Sons of Israel, to say; If a soul, she sins in ignorance from any of the Commandments of hwhy which she should not to do, and does one of them:

Looking at the following words:

THEM

The Hebrew word for them is "heynah"- Heh, Nun, Heh (
hnh). It is from Strong's Concordance number 2007, and its defintion

Prolonged for H2004; themselves (often used emphatically for the copula, also in indirect relation): -    X in, X such (and such things), their, (into) them, thence, therein, these, they (had), on this side, those, wherein.

from 2004 "heyn" (
Nh), and its defintion

Feminine plural from H1931; they (only used when emphatic): -    X in, such like, (with) them, thereby, therein, (more than) they, wherein, in which, whom, withal.


from 1931 "hoo" or "hee" (
awh or ayh), and its definition

The second form is the feminine beyond the Pentateuch; a primitive word, the third person pronoun singular, he (she or it); only expressed when emphatic or without a verb; also (intensively) self, or (especially with the article) the same; sometimes (as demonstrative) this or that; occasionally (instead of copula) as or are: - he, as for her, him (-self), it, the same, she (herself), such, that (. . . it), these, they, this, those, which (is), who.

The point is that the word "them" in the Hebrew is feminine plural. In this context, it relates to the "Commandments", because the Commandments are feminine. Also, the soul is feminine as it is written later in the Torah portion of Akharey Moth, in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 17:14 ...for the soul of all flesh, she is his blood:

Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted that when it says "a soul", it does not mean "a Jew". It means "anyone" who is a native or an adopted or grafted Israelite, because there were a "mixed multitude", as mentioned in the Torah portion of Bo, in the book of Exodus

Exouds 12:37 And the Sons of Israel, they pulled from Rameses to Succoth, as six hundred thousand of foot, the men by apart from the little ones. 38 And also a mixed multitude went up with them;


IGNORANCE

The Hebrew word for ignorance
"sh'gah-gah"- Shin, Gimel, Gimel, Heh (hggs). It is from Strong's Concordance number 7684, and its definition

From H7683; a mistake or inadvertent transgression: - error, ignorance, at unawares, unwittingly.

from 7683 "shah-gahg" (
ggs), and its definition

A primitive root; to stray, that is, (figuratively) sin (with more or less apology): -    X also for that, deceived, err, go astray, sin ignorantly.

This is where we get our modern English word "ga ga" without the shin, like the expression of an innocent baby.

These types of offerings in this chapter should be called "the Sin of Ignorance Offerings".



Verses three through twelve

3 If the Priest of the anointed sins to make the People guilty; and shall bring upon his sin which was sinned a perfect bullock, a son of a herd, to hwhy for a Sin Offering. 4 And shall bring ta-the bullock to the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment to the Face of hwhy; and shall lay ta-his hand upon the head of the bullock, and slaughter ta-the bullock to the Face of hwhy. 5 And the Priest of the anointed shall take from the blood of the bullock, and bring him to the Tent of Appointment: 6 And the Priest shall dip ta-his finger in the blood, and sprinkle from the blood seven times to the Face of hwhy of ta-the face of the Veil of the Sanctuary. 7 And the Priest shall put from the blood upon the Horns of the Altar of the Incense of Spices to the Face of hwhy which is in the Tent of Appointment; and shall pour out ta all the blood of the bullock to the Base of the Altar of the Elevation Offering which is at the Entrance of the Tent of Appoinment. 8 And from him shall lift up ta all the kheylev-fat of the bullock of the Sin Offering; ta-the kheylev-fat that covers upon the inwards, and ta all the kheylev-fat which is upon the inwards, 9 and ta the two kidneys, and ta-the kheylev-fat which is upon them which is upon the loins, and ta-the caul (fold) upon the liver upon the kidneys, shall remove her, 10 as which is offered up with the ox of the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering: and the Priest shall burn them as incense upon the Altar of the Elevation Offering, 11 and ta-the skin of the bullock, and ta-all his flesh upon his head, and upon his legs, and his inwards, and his dung. 12 And ta-all of the bullock shall be carried forth to outside of the Camp to a clean place to empty out the ashes, and shall burn him upon the wood in the fire: and shall be burned when the ashes are emptied out.

I: THE SIN OFFERING OF IGNORANCE OFFERING FOR THE PRIEST

1. The Priest brings a perfect male bullock, a son of the herd.

2. Brings it to the Tent's Entrance.
3. Lay his hand on the bullock.
4. Kills the bullock.
5. The anointed Priest takes the blood and brings it to the Tent.
6. The Priest dips his finger into the blood.
7. The Priest sprinkles it seven times before 
hwhy, before the Veil of the Sanctuary.
8. The Priest puts blood on the Horns on the Altar.
9. The Priest pours the blood at the Base of the Altar of the Elevation Offering at the Entrance of the Tent.
10. The Priest lifts up:
a. The kheylev-fat covering the inwards.
b. The kheylev-fat upon the inwards.
c. The two kidneys.
d. The kheylev-fat upon the loins upon the kidneys.

13. The Priest pours out the ashes.
14. The Priest burns the bullock on wood, on the ashes.


Looking at the following words:

GUILT

T
he Hebrew word for guilt is "ashamah"- Aleph, Shin, Mem, Heh (hmsa). It is from Strong's Concordance number 819, and its definition

Feminine of H817; guiltiness, a fault, the presentation of a sin offering: - offend, sin, (cause of) trespass (-ing, offering).

from 817 and "asham" (
msa), and its definition

From H816; guilt; by implication a fault; also a sin offering: - guiltiness, (offering for) sin, trespass (offering).

from 816 "asham" or "asheym" (
msa), and its definition

A primitive root; to be guilty; by implication to be punished or perish: -  X certainly, be (-come, made) desolate, destroy, X greatly, be (-come, found, hold) guilty, offend (acknowledge offence), trespassive



SIN

T
he Hebrew word for sin is "khata"- Khet, Tet, Aleph (ajx). It is from Strong's Concordance number 2398, and its definition

A primitive root; properly to miss; hence (figuratively and generally) to sin; by inference to forfeit, lack, expiate, repent, (causatively) lead astray, condemn: - bear the blame, cleanse, commit [sin], by fault, harm he hath done, loss, miss, (make) offend (-er), offer for sin, purge, purify (self), make reconciliation, (cause, make) sin (-ful, -ness), trespassive

This is where we get our modern English word "hate". I would prefer to call it a "Hate Offering". When one sins, one does it in an act of "hate" against 
hwhy. Yeshua made an example of this of choosing between hwhy and Mammon in the Gospel of Luke.

Luke 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve hwhy and mammon.

The servant has to choose which one to hate. If the servant hates 
hwhy, this is the kind of "sin" that servant will bear.


ANOINTED

The Hebrew word for anointed is "mah-shee-akh"- Mem, Shin, Yod, Khet (
xysm). It is from Strong's Concordance number 4899, and its definition

From H4886; anointed; usually a consecrated person (as a king, priest, or saint); specifically the Messiah: - anointed, Messiah.

from 4886 "mah-shakh" (
xsm), and its definition

A primitive root; to rub with oil, that is, to anoint; by implication to consecrate; also to paint: - anoint, paint.

This Hebrew word in the Hebrew text is "hah-mah-sheeakh" (
xysmh), with the "Heh" before it, commonly interpreted as "the anointed". This Hebrew text phrase is used only four times throughout the Tanakh (the Old Testament). It is used three times in this week's Torah portion chapter in verses three, five and sixteen, and the other place this Hebrew text phrase is used is located in the Torah portion of Tsav, in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 6:22 And the Priest from his sons of the anointed (xysmh) of his stead, shall offer her: a Statute for Ages to hwhy; shall be completely burned.

These are the only times this Hebrew text phrase is used, and it is only applied to the Priest in the book of Leviticus. This phrase could also be translated

5 And the Priest of "the Messiah"...

because Yeshua, "the Messiah", is of the descendant of the High Priesthood of Aaron through His biological mother Mary, a descendant of the Levitical High Priesthood, whose cousin, Elizabeth, wife of Zecharias the Priest, is also of the Levitical High Priesthood lineage. These verses reveal to us that they are hinting that "the Messiah" is involved through the Priesthood.



In verse twelve, the Hebrew text for outside is "meekhoots"- Mem, Khet, Vav, Tsade Sophit (Uwxm) from Strong's Concordance number 2351 which is the Hebrew word "khoots" (Uwx). This Hebrew text with the Mem is another word that Strong's overlooked, and it should have been a separate, independant sourced word like the other Hebrew word "m'adam" (Mdam) which I commented, in the Torah portion of P'kudey, in chapter thirty nine, verse thirty four.



Verses thirteen through twenty-one

13 And if any of the Congregation of Israel ignorantly sin, and the word (matter) shall be concealed of them from the eyes of the Assembly, and they have done one from any of the Commandments of hwhy which she should not do, and they are guilty; 14 And the sin shall be known which they have sinned upon her, and the Assembly shall bring a bullock for a Sin Offering, and they shall bring him to the face of the Tent of Appointment. 15 And the Elders of the Congregation, they shall lay ta-their hands upon the head of the bullock to the Face of hwhy: and shall slaughter ta-the bullock to the Face of hwhy. 16 And the Priest of the anointed shall bring the blood of the bullock to the Tent of Appointment: 17 And the Priest shall dip his finger from the blood, and shall sprinkle seven times to the Face of hwhy of ta-the face of the Veil. 18 And shall put the blood upon the Horns of the Altar which is to the Face of hwhy which is in the Tent of Appoinment, and shall pour out ta all the blood to the Base of the Altar of the Elevation Offering, which is the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment. 19 And shall lift up ta all his kheylev-fat from him, and shall burn him as incense upon the Altar. 20 And shall do to the bullock as which is done to the bullock of the Sin Offering, so shall do to him: and the Priest shall atone upon them, and shall be forgiven to them. 21 And shall bring ta-the bullock to outside of the Camp, and shall burn him as which was burned ta-the first bullock: he is a Sin Offering of the Assembly.

2. Elders of the Congregation lay their hands on it.

Verses twenty two through twenty six

22 When a ruler sins, and has done one from any of the Commandments of hwhy his Elohim which she should not do in ignorance, and is guilty; 23 Or has been made known to him his sin, which had sinned in her; and shall bring ta-his Karban Offering a kid of the goats of a perfect male: 24 And shall lay his hand upon the head of the kid, and slaughter him in the place where they slaughter ta-the Elevation Offering to the Face of hwhy: he is a Sin Offering. 25 And the Priest shall take from the blood of the Sin Offering on his finger, and shall put upon the Horns of the Altar of the Elevation Offering, and shall pour out ta-his blood to the Base of the Altar of the Elevation Offering. 26 And shall burn as incense ta-all his kheylev-fat to the Altar as the kheylev-fat of the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering: and the Priest shall atone upon him from his sin, and shall be forgiven to him.

III: THE SIN OF IGNORANCE OFFERING OF THE RULER

1. The ruler brings a perfect male kid of the goats.

3. The ruler kills it at the place of the Elevation Offering- at the North side of the Altar (from chapter one) for a Sin Offering.
4. The annointed Priest puts blood on the Horns on the Altar (doesn't sprinkle the seven times like the previous two).

This chapter of the Sin of the Ignorance Offerings was a basis for the Jews returning from Babylonian captivity in making sacrifices for their sins which resulted in their removal from the land, and it is mentioned in the book of Ezra

Ezra 8:35 The ones which came from the captivity, the sons of those that had been exiled, offered Elevation Offerings unto the Elohim of Israel, twelve bullocks for all Israel, ninety and six rams, seventy and seven sheep, twelve he goats for a Sin Offering: all of the Elevation Offering unto hwhy.

It would make proper sense that the Sin Offering was used based in chapter four, but the offerings in chapter four do not require a ram or male sheep or male goats.




Indirectly related, I want to add this account regarding King David. Some of t
hese kinds of offerings could have been those that King David would have made after he was informed of his sin when he went unto Bathsheba and killed Uriah the Hittite. This is what King David wrote in the book of the Pslams

Psalms 51:14 Deliver me from bloods, Elohim, Elohim of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of Thy righteousness. 15 Adonai, open my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. 16 For Thou desirest not sacrifice; or I would give it: Thou delightest not in an Elevation Offering. 17 The Sacrifices of Elohim are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, Elohim, Thou wilt not despise. 18 Do good in Thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem. 19 Then shalt Thou delight the Sacrifices of Righteousness, of the Elevation Offering and the Whole Burnt Offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon Thine Altar.

Looking at the word WHOLE BURNT OFFERING

The Hebrew word for Whole Burnt Offering is "Kaleel"- Kaph. Lamed, Yod, Lamed (
lylk). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3632, and its defintion

From H3634; complete; as noun, the whole (specifically a sacrifice entirely consumed); as adverb fully: - all, every whit, flame, perfect (-ion), utterly, whole burnt offering (sacrifice), wholly.

from 3634 "kalal" (
llk), and its definition

A primitive root; to complete: - (make) perfect.

This Whole Burnt Offering is mentioned in the Torah portion of V'Zoth H'B'rakhah, in the book of Deuteronomy, when Moses blessed the Tribe of Levi for the latter days

Deuteronomy 33:10 They shall teach Your ordaninces to Jacob and Your Torah to Israel: they shall put incense on Your nostrils, and The Whole Burnt Offering shall be upon Your altar.

David knew that it takes more than just sacrificial offerings to get right with 
hwhy. David had to be atoned for his sins by having a broken and contrite heart first, then hwhy could accept David's offerings.



This chapter of Offerings was a basis for the Jews returning from Babylonian captivity, in making sacrifices for their sins which resulted in their removal from the land, as mentioned in the book of Ezra

Ezra 8:35 The ones which came from the captivity, the sons of those that had been exiled, offered Elevation Offerings unto the Elohim of Israel, twelve bullocks for all Israel, ninety and six rams, seventy and seven sheep, twelve he goats for a Sin Offering: all of the Elevation Offering unto hwhy.

It would make more proper sense if it was the sin offerings in chapter four, but the offerings in chapter four do not require a ram or male sheep or male goats.








CHAPTER 5

Leviticus 5:1-19

Lev 5:1 And if a soul, she sins, and hears the sound of cursing, and he is a witness, or has seen or has known; if has not been told, and shall bear his iniquity, 2 or when a soul, she touches on any thing unclean, or on a carcase of an unclean beast, or on a carcase of unclean animal, or on a carcase of an unclean swarming thing, and is concealed from him; and he shall be unclean, and is guilty. 3 Or if shall touch in uncleanness an Adam to any of his uncleanness which shall be unclean on her, and is concealed from him; and he knows, and is guilty. 4 Or a soul, if she swears to speaking rashly on the lips to the evil or to the good to any of the Adam who speak rashly on the oath, and is concealed from him; and he has known, and is guilty to one of these. 5 And shall be, if shall be guilty to one of these, and shall confess that had sinned upon her: 6 And shall bring
ta-his Guilt Offering to hwhy upon his sin whom had sinned a female from the flock, a lamb, or a ewe kid of the goats for a Sin Offering; and the Priest shall atone upon him from his sin.

7 And if his hand, she doen't ably reach a lamb, and whom had sinned shall bring of
ta-his Guilt Offering two turtledoves or two sons of a dove to hwhy; one for a Sin Offering and one for an Elevation Offering. 8 And shall bring them to the Priest, and shall bring near ta-which is for the Sin Offering first, and wring off ta-his head from the front of his neck, and shall not divide: 9 And shall sprinkle from the blood of the Sin Offering upon the side of the Altar; and the remainder among the blood shall be drained out to the Base of the Altar: he is a Sin Offering. 10 And shall do ta-the second of an Elevation Offering as an Ordinance: and the Priest shall atone upon him from his sin which had sinned, and shall be forgiven to him.

11 And if she can not touch his hand to two turtledoves or to two sons of a dove, and whom had sinned shall bring
ta-his Karban Offering of a tenth of the ephah of flour for a Sin Offering; shall not put oil upon her, and shall not put frankincense upon her: for he is a Sin Offering. 12 And shall bring her to the Priest, and the Priest shall take from her the fullness of his handful ta-her Memorial Offering, and burn as incense to the Altar upon the Fire Offering to hwhy: he is a Sin Offering. 13 And the Priest shall atone upon him upon his sin whom had sinned from one from these, and shall be forgiven to him: and shall be for the Priest as a Food Offering.

14 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 15 If a soul, she transgresses a transgression, and sins in ignorance from the Holy Things of hwhy; and shall bring ta-his Guilt Offering to hwhy a perfect ram from the flock in your evaluation of silver shekels on the Shekel of the Sanctuary for a Guilt Offering: 16 And ta whom had sinned from the Holy Things shall restore and shall add ta-his fifth upon him and give him to the Priest: and the Priest shall atone upon him on the ram of the Guilt Offering, and shall be forgiven to him.

17 And if a soul, that she sins and has done her one from any of the Commandments of 
hwhy; which she should not have done, and does not know, and is guilty, and bears his iniquity, 18 and shall bring a perfect ram from the flock, in your evaluation for a Guilt Offering to the Priest: and the Priest shall atone upon him upon his ignorance whom was ignorant, and he did not know, and shall be forgiven to him. 19 He is a Guilt Offering: guilty, shall be guilty to hwhy.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments).


This chapter is based on the offerings for those who are guilty and bear these iniquities whether unkowingly or knowingly. Some of these could be based on acts that they had no choice, which I will explain in parts later in this chapter. This chapter notes the various Guilt Offerings.

Looking at the word GUILT OFFERING

The Hebrew word for Guilt Offering is "ah-shahm"- Aleph, Shin, Mem Sophit
(Msa). It is from Strong's Concordance number 817, and its definition

From H816; guilt; by implication a fault; also a sin offering: - guiltiness, (offering for) sin, trespass (offering).

from 816 "asham" or "ah-sheym" (
Msa), and its definition

A primitive root; to be guilty; by implication to be punished or perish: -  X certainly, be (-come, made) desolate, destroy, X greatly, be (-come, found, hold) guilty, offend (acknowledge offence), trespassive

This is where we get our modern English word "shame" or "ashamed". This is the shame that affects a man even to his private parts. When Yeshua died on the tree, He was "completely naked", and Yeshua's private parts was exposed to identify "the shame of mankind", or "the shame of Adam" which He took with Him at the cross.


Looking at the word INIQUITY

The Hebrew word for Initquity is "ah-vohn"- Ayin, Vav, Nun Sophit
(Nwe). It is from Strong's Concordance number 5771, and its definition

From H5753; perversity, that is, (moral) evil: - fault, iniquity, mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin.

from 816 "asham" or "ah-sheym" (Msa), and its definition

A primitive root; to crook, literally or figuratively: - do amiss, bow down, make crooked, commit iniquity, pervert, (do) perverse (-ly), trouble, X turn, do wickedly, do wrong.


The iniquity is a result of one who "perverses" his own soul through these exampled acts in this chapter.


These are the various Guilt Offerings.



Verses one through six

1 And if a soul, she sins, and hears the sound of cursing, and he is a witness, or has seen or has known; if has not been told, and shall bear his iniquity, 2 or when a soul, she touches on any thing unclean, or on a carcase of an unclean beast, or on a carcase of unclean animal, or on a carcase of an unclean swarming thing, and is concealed from him; and he shall be unclean, and is guilty. 3 Or if shall touch in uncleanness an Adam to any of his uncleanness which shall be unclean on her, and is concealed from him; and he knows, and is guilty. 4 Or a soul, if she swears to speaking rashly on the lips to the evil or to the good to any of the Adam who speak rashly on the oath, and is concealed from him; and he has known, and is guilty to one of these. 5 And shall be, if shall be guilty to one of these, and shall confess that had sinned upon her: 6 And shall bring ta-his Guilt Offering to hwhy upon his sin whom had sinned a female from the flock, a lamb, or a ewe kid of the goats for a Sin Offering; and the Priest shall atone upon him from his sin.

NOTES:

Verses eleven through thirteen

11 And if she can not touch his hand to two turtledoves or to two sons of a dove, and whom had sinned shall bring ta-his Karban Offering of a tenth of the ephah of flour for a Sin Offering; shall not put oil upon her, and shall not put frankincense upon her: for he is a Sin Offering. 12 And shall bring her to the Priest, and the Priest shall take from her the fullness of his handful ta-her Memorial Offering, and burn as incense to the Altar upon the Fire Offering to hwhy: he is a Sin Offering. 13 And the Priest shall atone upon him upon his sin whom had sinned from one from these, and shall be forgiven to him: and shall be for the Priest as a Food Offering.

Verses fourteen through sixteen

14 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 15 If a soul, she transgresses a transgression, and sins in ignorance from the Holy Things of hwhy; and shall bring ta-his Guilt Offering to hwhy a perfect ram from the flock in your evaluation of silver shekels on the Shekel of the Sanctuary for a Guilt Offering: 16 And ta whom had sinned from the Holy Things shall restore and shall add ta-his fifth upon him and give him to the Priest: and the Priest shall atone upon him on the ram of the Guilt Offering, and shall be forgiven to him.

IV: THE GUILT OFFERING OF TRANSGRESSION IN IGNORANCE OF THE HOLY THINGS OF hwhy

1. One brings a perfect ram shall estimated in silver shekels by the Shekel of the Sanctuary.
2. The man shall pay the amount and add a fifth (20 percent) to it, meaning whatever the total of the value of the ram. Say ten silver shekels- plus add the fifth to it- which would be two silver shekels. So the man pays 12 silver shekels to the Priest.
3. The priest shall atone for him by the ram of the Guilt Offering, and will be forgiven.

NOTES:
*It's most likely that the Priests are the ones that possess the perfect ram to begin with, and are selling the ram to the one who transgressed by the Priests' evaluation of the perfect ram and adds twenty percent to the value.

As I noted in the Torah portion of , in the book of Genesis, the domesticated animals were the dominant source of revenue and the silver and gold were not a major resource. During the first year of the seven years of famine, when Joseph as Viceroy of Egypt required the silver to buy grain, it was spent within a short period of time, and then Joseph accepted the domesticated livestock which lasted much longer than the silver. But the animals were spent by the end of the first year. The issue buying from the Priests in silver for the transgression of this Sin Offering would be one of the last options.



Verses seventeen through nineteen

17 And if a soul, that she sins and has done her one from any of the Commandments of hwhy; which she should not have done, and does not know, and is guilty, and bears his iniquity, 18 and shall bring a perfect ram from the flock, in your evaluation for a Guilt Offering to the Priest: and the Priest shall atone upon him upon his ignorance whom was ignorant, and he did not know, and shall be forgiven to him. 19 He is a Guilt Offering: guilty, shall be guilty to hwhy.

V: THE GUILT OFFERING OF IGNORANCE FROM THE COMMANDMENTS OF hwhy

1. The man takes a perfect ram in Moses's estimation that is in charge for a Guilt Offering to the Priest.
2. The Priest shall atone for the man and be forgiven.

NOTES:
*Based on this requirement, in Leviticus 1:1, 
hwhy was speaking to Moses throughout these Commandments, and when hwhy said "...in your evaluation...", he meant "Moses' evaluation". It doesn't note to whom after Moses would lead the evaluation in the Torah portion passage, but I would guess it would have been the High Priest.







CHAPTER 6

Leviticus 6:1-7

Lev 6:1 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 2 If a soul, she sins, and transgresses a transgression against hwhy and deceives against ta-his neighbor in counting, or in a deposit of hand, or in a robbery, or has extorted his neighbor; 3 or has found a lost thing, and was lying against her, or had sworn upon falsehood; upon one from any which the Adam does by sinning in them: 4 And shall be, if had sinned and is guilty, and shall return ta-the robbed thing that was robbed, or ta-the extorted thing that was extorted, or ta-the deposit that was deposited with him, or ta-the lost thing which was found, 5 or from all that was sworn upon him for falsehood, and shall repay him on his headness (principal), and his fifth shall be added upon him, to whomever he is to him shall give him in the day of his Guilt Offering. 6 And shall bring ta-his Guilt Offering to hwhy of a perfect ram from the flock in your evaluation for a Guilt Offering to the Priest: 7 And the Priest shall atone upon him to the Face of hwhy: and shall be forgiven to him from any that was done to be guilty on her.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments).


VI: GUILT OFFERING:

A. ONE LIES IN THE COUNTING (Example: Can one count the amount of money that is exchanging at the New York Stock Exchange in New York City?).

B. ONE LIES WITH THE PURSE IN HAND (In other words, the amount that is in the purse without the other person seeing it).

C. ONE ROBBING, OR STEALING, FROM A PERSON (The Eighth Word (Commandment)).

 D. ONE DECIEVED HIS NEIGHBOR.

E. ONE FINDS A LOST THING AND LIED AGAINST THE OWNER (Example: "I don't have it").

F. ONE SWEARS UNTO FALSEHOOD (Example: How many times has the IRS lied to congress under oath?)


All must do these steps:
1. If one has sinned in these one has to return from the above issues that the person did and add a fifth (twenty percent) to its value at the time of the giving of his Guilt Offering.
2. One shall bring a perfect ram to the one on Moses' estimation for a Guilt Offering to the Priest.
3. The Priest shall atone for the one and will be forgiven.

NOTES:
Anyone heard of the term "Embezzlement"? This definition of embezzlement comes from definitions.uslegal.com

"Embezzlement is the fraudulent appropriation of money used by someone entrusted with it's care on behalf of others, but uses it for his/her own purposes".

This is based on this chapter.



Looking at the word TRANSGRESS

The Hebrew word for "transgress" is "mah'ahl"- Mem, Ayin, Lamed (
lem). It is from Strong's Concordance number 4604, and its definition

From H4608; treachery, that is, sin: - falsehood, grievously, sore, transgression, trespass, X very.

from 4608 "mah'ahleh" (
hlem), and its definition

From H5927; an elevation, that is, (concretely) acclivity or platform; abstractly (the relation or state) a rise or (figuratively) priority: - ascent, before, chiefest, cliff, that goeth up, going up, hill, mounting up, stairs.

from 5927 "ahlah" (
hle), and its definition

A primitive root; to ascend, intransitively (be high) or active (mount); used in a great variety of senses, primary and secondary, literally and figuratively: - arise (up). (cause to) ascend up, at once, break [the day] (up), bring (up), (cause to) burn, carry up, cast up, + shew, climb (up), (cause to, make to) come (up), cut off, dawn, depart, exalt, excel, fall, fetch up, get up, (make to) go (away, up), grow (over), increase, lay, leap, levy, lift (self) up, light, [make] up, X mention, mount up, offer, make to pay, + perfect, prefer, put (on), raise, recover, restore, (make to) rise (up), scale, set (up), shoot forth (up), (begin to) spring (up), stir up, take away (up), work.

This is where we our modern English word "mal", which makes part of the English words "malice", "malignant", "malware", etc.


These offerings are based on one who "deceives" others through acts of "selfishness". This Hebrew word also reveals that those who do these acts are "exalting" or "ascending" themselves in doing unrighteous acts instead of exalting the Creator and His righteousness. This is based on Lucifer, who in Hebrew is "Heyleyl" where we get our modern English word "Hell", the place named after him, in which he intended to "exalt" himself above 
hwhy, and it is noted in the book of the prophet Ezekiel

Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer (Heyleyl (lylh) , son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of El: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High. 15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.



TORAH PORTION COMMENTARIES

Notice that 
hwhy revealed these offerings throughout this week's Torah potion:

Chapters one through three: Non-atoning voluntary offerings
Chapter four: Unintentional sin offerings
Chapter five: Offerings of iniquities
Chapter six: Offerings of transgression by perversing and exulting themselves

The different sin offerings of chapters four through six reveal that these acts go deeper into one's soul and impacts them.



Throughout this week's Torah portion, every time the word "soul" is used in the scripture, it indicates that the soul is feminine, and sometimes when the pronoun "she" or "her" is used in the offerings it shows that some of the offerings is feminine, because it relates to the man's soul.



Indirectly related of this week's Torah portion, I want to add this account regarding King David. Some of t
hese kinds of offerings could have been those that King David would have made after he was informed of his sin when he went unto Bathsheba and killed Uriah the Hittite. This is what King David wrote in the book of the Pslams

Psalms 51:14 Deliver me from bloods, Elohim, Elohim of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of Thy righteousness. 15 Adonai, open my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. 16 For Thou desirest not sacrifice; or I would give it: Thou delightest not in an Elevation Offering. 17 The Sacrifices of Elohim are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, Elohim, Thou wilt not despise. 18 Do good in Thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem. 19 Then shalt Thou delight the Sacrifices of Righteousness, of the Elevation Offering and the Whole Burnt Offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon Thine Altar.

Looking at the word WHOLE BURNT OFFERING

The Hebrew word for Whole Burnt Offering is "Kaleel"- Kaph. Lamed, Yod, Lamed (
lylk). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3632, and its defintion

From H3634; complete; as noun, the whole (specifically a sacrifice entirely consumed); as adverb fully: - all, every whit, flame, perfect (-ion), utterly, whole burnt offering (sacrifice), wholly.

from 3634 "kalal" (
llk), and its definition

A primitive root; to complete: - (make) perfect.

This Whole Burnt Offering is mentioned in the Torah portion of V'Zoth H'B'rakhah, in the book of Deuteronomy, when Moses blessed the Tribe of Levi for the latter days

Deuteronomy 33:10 They shall teach Your ordaninces to Jacob and Your Torah to Israel: they shall put incense on Your nostrils, and The Whole Burnt Offering shall be upon Your altar.

David knew that it takes more than just sacrificial offerings to get right with 
hwhy. David had to be atoned for his sins by having a broken and contrite heart first, then hwhy could accept David's offerings.



Rico Cortes of Wisdom in Torah Ministries noted that the reason one type of animal was used for more than one type of offering, so that the People would not know what kind of sin that person was repenting for.



Rico Cortes, Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries, and other Messianic/Hebrew Roots teachers noted that all of theseoffereings are only for "unintentional sin". Back then, there was no offering for "intentional sin".



There was one account related in this week's Torah portion regarding Yeshua where the Jewish leaders willfully premeditated to put Him to death with the help of the Roman authorities, and was cruicified beyond recognition. And yet while on the cross, Yeshua said this to the Heavenly Father in the Gospel of Luke

Luke 23:34 Then said Yeshua, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do....

but Rico Cortes noted in his Torah week's portion teaching that Yeshua came to the world to do away the willful rebellious sin.

HALLELUYAH!!!



Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries commented that if one was a Levite priest, and saw a man coming with a bullock, the Priest would have an idea what kind of sacrifices he is potentially bringing. One can do the same thing with the other animals and the bread as well. That was a good perspective that Mark noted. Also Mark said that giving an animal for a sacrifice was equivalent of burning a $100 bill. The man cannot sell it nor eat it, and it was a loss for that man. Don't forget, the most valued asset during the Biblical period was the livestock. When one gives an animal for the sacrifice, one was letting go of a valuable item. You can hear his teaching on this week's torah portion (2015). He had some good things to say in it. You can get it at this link below, by clicking on Mark's image.

MARK BILTZ
Saturday, March 21, 2015: He Called

Mark Biltz


Bill Cloud of Shoreshim Ministries has a couple of good things to say in this week's Torah portion as well. This is the link, by click Bill's image below (Note: one has to be subscribed to his web blog).


BILL CLOUD
Torah Tidbit: Vayikra "A Living Sacrifice"
(Note: One has to be subscribed to his web blog)

Bill Cloud


Indirectly related, Bill Cloud made note of the apostle Paul's letter to the assembly in Rome

Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of hwhy, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto hwhy, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of hwhy.



Indirectly related, the apostle Paul reminded them that Yeshua gave Himself for them (and us) as a sacrifice to 
hwhy, and noted it in his letter to the assembly in Ephesus

Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Messiah also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to hwhy for a sweetsmelling savour.



I will end it by quoting from the apostle Paul's letter in the book of Hebrews

Hebrews 13:15 By Him therefore let us offer the Sacrifice of Praise to hwhy continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His Name.



That ends this week's Torah portion commentary.
