Leviticus 1:14

From the Birds

1:14 “‘If his offering to the Lord is a burnt offering from the birds, 1  he must present his offering from the turtledoves or from the young pigeons. 2 

Leviticus 12:6


12:6 “‘When 3  the days of her purification are completed for a son or for a daughter, she must bring a one year old lamb 4  for a burnt offering 5  and a young pigeon or turtledove for a sin offering 6  to the entrance of the Meeting Tent, to the priest.

1 tn Heb “from the [category] ‘bird.’”

2 tn Heb “from the sons of the pigeon,” referring either to “young pigeons” (cf. KJV, NASB, NIV, NLT) or “various species of pigeon” (contrast J. Milgrom, Leviticus [AB], 1:168, with J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 14).

3 tn Heb “And when” (so KJV, NASB). Many recent English versions leave the conjunction untranslated.

4 tn Heb “a lamb the son of his year”; KJV “a lamb of the first year” (NRSV “in its first year”); NAB “a yearling lamb.”

5 sn See the note on Lev 1:3 regarding the “burnt offering.”

6 sn See the note on Lev 4:3 regarding the term “sin offering.”
