The offerer must wash its entrails and shanks with water. Then the priest will burn all of it on the altar as a burnt offering, a fire offering of a pleasing aroma to the LORD.
But he is to wash the entrails and shanks with water. The priest will then present all of it and burn [it] on the altar; it is a burnt offering, a fire offering of a pleasing aroma to the LORD.
He will tear it open by its wings without dividing [the bird]. Then the priest is to burn it on the altar on top of the burning wood. It is a burnt offering, a fire offering of a pleasing aroma to the LORD.
I will reduce your cities to ruins and devastate your sanctuaries. I will not smell the pleasing aroma of your [sacrifices].
How delightful your love is, my sister, my bride. Your love is much better than wine, and the fragrance of your perfume than any balsam.
Your lips drip [sweetness like] the honeycomb, my bride. Honey and milk are under your tongue. The fragrance of your garments is like the fragrance of Lebanon.
It is written before Me: I will not keep silent, but I will repay; I will repay them fully
When I bring you from the peoples and gather you from the countries where you have been scattered, I will accept you as a pleasing aroma. And I will demonstrate My holiness through you in the sight of the nations.
I hate, I despise your feasts! I can't stand the stench of your solemn assemblies.
Even if you offer Me your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept [them]; I will have no regard for your fellowship offerings of fattened cattle.
For to God we are the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
And walk in love, as the Messiah also loved us and gave Himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God.
But I have received everything in full, and I have an abundance. I am fully supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you provided-- a fragrant offering, a welcome sacrifice, pleasing to God.
And He said to Adam, "Because you listened to your wife's voice and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'Do not eat from it': The ground is cursed because of you. You will eat from it by means of painful labor all the days of your life.
If you work the land, it will never again give you its yield. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth."
And he named him Noah, saying, "This one will bring us relief from the agonizing labor of our hands, caused by the ground the LORD has cursed."
"Understand that I am bringing a deluge-- floodwaters on the earth to destroy all flesh under heaven with the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will die.
When the LORD saw that man's wickedness was widespread on the earth and that every scheme his mind thought of was nothing but evil all the time,
Who can produce something pure from what is impure? No one!
What is man, that he should be pure, or one born of woman, that he should be righteous?
If God puts no trust in His holy ones and the heavens are not pure in His sight,
how much less one who is revolting and corrupt, who drinks injustice like water?
Indeed, I was guilty [when I] was born; I was sinful when my mother conceived me.
The wicked go astray from the womb; liars err from birth.
Who can say, "I have kept my heart pure; I am cleansed from my sin"?
There is certainly no righteous man on the earth who does good and never sins.
So take your stand with your spells and your many sorceries, which you have wearied yourself with from your youth. Perhaps you will be able to succeed; perhaps you will inspire terror!
This is what they are to you-- those who have wearied you and have traded with you from your youth-- each wanders on his own way; no one can save you.
You have never heard; you have never known; For a long time your ears have not been open. For I knew that you were very treacherous, and were known as a rebel from birth.
We all went astray like sheep; we all have turned to our own way; and the LORD has punished Him for the iniquity of us all.
I have paid careful attention. They do not speak what is right. No one regrets his evil, asking: What have I done? Everyone has stayed his course like a horse rushing into battle.
The heart is more deceitful than anything else and desperately sick-- who can understand it?
But they will say: It's hopeless. We will continue to follow our plans, and each of us will continue to act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart."
For from the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, sexual immoralities, thefts, false testimonies, blasphemies.
Whatever is born of the flesh is flesh, and whatever is born of the Spirit is spirit.
For though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became nonsense, and their senseless minds were darkened.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
For the mind-set of the flesh is hostile to God because it does not submit itself to God's law, for it is unable to do so.
Those whose lives are in the flesh are unable to please God.
And you were dead in your trespasses and sins
in which you previously walked according to this worldly age, according to the ruler of the atmospheric domain, the spirit now working in the disobedient.
We too all previously lived among them in our fleshly desires, carrying out the inclinations of our flesh and thoughts, and by nature we were children under wrath, as the others were also.
But each person is tempted when he is drawn away and enticed by his own evil desires.
Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and when sin is fully grown, it gives birth to death.
What is the source of the wars and the fights among you? Don't they come from the cravings that are at war within you?
You desire and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. You do not have because you do not ask.
We know that we are of God, and the whole world is under the sway of the evil one.
I confirm My covenant with you that never again will all flesh be wiped out by the waters of a deluge; there will never again be a deluge to destroy the earth."
And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between Me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all future generations:
I have placed My bow in the clouds, and it will be a sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.
Whenever I form clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds,
I will remember My covenant between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh: water will never again become a deluge to destroy all flesh.
"For this is like the days of Noah to Me: when I swore that the waters of Noah would never flood the earth again, so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you or rebuke you.
Though the mountains move and the hills shake, My love will not be removed from you and My covenant of peace will not be shaken," says your compassionate LORD.
Through these the world of that time perished when it was flooded by water.
But by the same word the present heavens and earth are held in store for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
