Forward
 6:1  6:2
6:1 First Reading
God spoke to Moses, telling him
Vayedaber Adonay el-Moshe lemor.
6:2 to relate the following instructions to Aaron and his descendants:

This is the law of the burnt offering. The burnt offering shall remain on the altar's hearth all night until morning, so that the altar's fires can be ignited with it.
Tsav et-Aharon ve'et-banav lemor zot torat ha'olah hi ha'olah al mokedah al-hamizbe'ach kol-halaylah ad-haboker ve'esh hamizbe'ach tukad bo.




Commentary:

following instructions
  Earlier, the laws relating primarily to the people bringing the sacrifices were given. Now the laws relating to the priest's follow-up are being given (Rashbam).

altar's hearth
  (Radak, Sherashim). Mokdah in Hebrew. This is the place where the sacrifices burn (Yoma 45a).

the altar's fires...
  (Ramban). Or, 'the fires of the [incense] altar' (Rashi; Yoma 45a).
