1To keep the law is to make many offerings;a
2whoever observes the commandments sacrifices a peace offering.
3By works of charity one offers fine flour,*
4and one who gives alms presents a sacrifice of praise.
5To refrain from evil pleases the Lord,
and to avoid injustice is atonement.
6Do not appear before the Lord empty-handed,
7for all that you offer is in fulfillment of the precepts.b
8The offering of the just enriches the altar:
a sweet odor before the Most High.
9The sacrifice of the just is accepted,
never to be forgotten.
10With a generous spirit pay homage to the Lord,
and do not spare your freewill gifts.c
11With each contribution show a cheerful countenance,
and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy.d
12Give to the Most High as he has given to you,
generously, according to your means.
13For he is a God who always repays
and will give back to you sevenfold.e
