The daily sacrifices (Num 28:1-28:8)

“Yahweh spoke to Moses. ‘Command the Israelites and say to them. ‘My offering, the food for my offerings by fire, my pleasing odor, you shall take care to offer to me at its appointed time.’ You shall say to them. ‘This is the offering by fire that you shall offer to Yahweh, two male lambs a year old without blemish, daily, as a regular offering. One lamb you shall offer in the morning. The other lamb you shall offer at twilight. They will be offered with one-tenth of an ephah of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with one-fourth of a hin of beaten oil. It is a regular burnt offering, ordained at Mount Sinai for a pleasing odor, an offering by fire to Yahweh. Its drink offering shall be one-fourth of a hin for each lamb. In the sanctuary you shall pour out a drink offering of strong drink to Yahweh. The other lamb you shall offer at twilight with a grain offering like the one in the morning. You shall offer it as an offering by fire, a pleasing odor to Yahweh.”

Once again we go back to Exodus, chapter 46, and Leviticus, chapter 23, about how to worship Yahweh. There should be 2 male lambs a year old, without blemish, daily as a regular offering, one in the morning and the other at twilight. You also have to have 1/10th of a bushel of choice flour for a grain offering, mixed with a ¼ of a hin of oil. A hin is about 1 ½ gallons. This had to produce a pleasing odor from the fire. The drink offering ought to be ¼ of a hin for each lamb. The drink offering is a ‘strong drink,’ without being specific.
