1:17 He shall split the bird apart by its wings without tearing it completely in half. The priest shall then burn it on the altar, on the wood that is on the fire. It is a burnt offering, a fire offering that is an appeasing fragrance to God.
Veshisa oto vichnafav lo yavdil vehiktir oto hakohen hamizbechah al-ha'etsim asher al-ha'esh olah hu isheh re'ach nicho'ach l'Adonay.


by its wings
  (Targum). Or, 'above its wings' (Saadia; Ramban). Or, 'he shall split it apart with its feathers' (without plucking it; Yereyim HaShalem 319; cf. Rashi).

without tearing it...
  Or, 'without tearing off [its wings]' (Targum Yonathan). This means that it is not necessary to separate it ( Yad, Maaseh HaKorbanoth 6:22).
