  20. Ye shall geue a cake of the first of youre dowe vnto an heueofferynge: as ye do the heue offerynge of the barne euen so ye shall heue it.
  21. Of the first of youre dowe ye must geue vnto the Lorde an heue offerynge thorow out youre generacions.
  22. Yf ye ouerse youre selues and obserue not all these commaundmetes which the Lorde hath spoken vnto Moses
  23. and all that the Lorde hath commaunded you by ye hade of Moses from the first daye forwarde that the Lorde commaunded amonge youre generacion:
  24. when oughte is commytted ignorantly before the eyes of the congregacion then all the multitude shall offer a calfe for a burntofferynge to be a swete sauoure vnto the Lorde and the meatofferynge and the drynkofferynge there to acordynge to the maner: and an he goote for a synofferynge.
