And if it is an animal from the herd that you offer to the Lord as a burnt offering or as a sacrifice, in fulfillment of a vow explicitly uttered or as an offering of well-being, there shall be offered a meal offering along with the animal: three-tenths of a measure of choice flour with half a hin of oil mixed in; and as libation you shall offer half a hin of wine–these being offerings by fire of pleasing odor to the Lord.
Thus shall be done with each ox, with each ram, and with any sheep or goat, as many as you offer; you shall do thus with each one, as many as there are. Every citizen, when presenting an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the Lord, shall do so with them.
And when, throughout the ages, a stranger who has taken up residence with you, or one who lives among you, would present an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the Lord–as you do, so shall it be done by the rest of the congregation. There shall be one law for you and for the resident stranger; it shall be a law for all time throughout the ages. You and the stranger shall be alike before the Lord; the same ritual and the same rule shall apply to you and to the stranger who resides among you.
