Monthly sacrifices (Num 28:11-28:15)

“At the beginning of your months you shall offer a burnt offering to Yahweh. This shall be two young bulls, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old without blemish. You add three-tenths of an ephah of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, for each bull. There shall be two-tenths of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with oil, for the one ram. There should be one-tenth of choice flour mixed with oil as a grain offering for every lamb. This shall be a burnt offering of pleasing odor, an offering by fire for Yahweh. Their drink offerings shall be half a hin of wine for a bull, one-third of a hin for a ram, and one-fourth of a hin for a lamb. This is the burnt offering of each month throughout the months of the year. There shall be one male goat for a sin offering to Yahweh. It shall be offered in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.”

At the beginning of every month there had to be a special burnt offering. Once again, like a cook book, there is a list of what had to be in the burnt offerings. Ten animals are sacrificed each month at the festival time of the new moon, 2 bulls, 1 ram, and 7 male lambs. The bull had 3/10 of a bushel of flour, 2/10 of a bushel for the ram, and 1/10 of bushel for each lamb. The drink offerings were ½ of a hin of wine for a bull, 1/3 of a hin of wine for the ram, and ¼ of a hin of wine for each lamb. On top of that there had to be a sin offering of a goat. All of this was in addition to the regular daily offerings.
