Leviticus 7

1 a  “This is the law of the b  guilt offering. c  It is most holy. 2 d  In the place where they kill the burnt offering they shall kill the guilt offering, and its blood shall be thrown against the sides of the altar. 3And e  all its fat shall be offered, the fat tail, the fat that covers the entrails, 4the two kidneys with the fat that is on them at the loins, and the long lobe of the liver that he shall remove f  with the kidneys. 5The priest shall burn them on the altar as a food offering to the  Lord; it is a guilt offering. 6 g  Every male among the priests may eat of it. It shall be eaten in a holy place. h  It is most holy. 7The i  guilt offering is just like the sin offering; there is one law for them. The priest who makes atonement with it shall have it. 8And the priest who offers any man’s burnt offering shall have for himself the skin of the burnt offering that he has offered. 9And j  every grain offering baked k  in the oven and all that is prepared l  on a pan or a griddle shall belong to the priest who offers it. 10And every grain offering, mixed with oil or dry, shall be shared equally among all the sons of Aaron.

11“And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings that one may offer to the  Lord. 12If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the thanksgiving sacrifice m  unleavened loaves mixed with oil, unleavened wafers smeared with oil, and loaves of fine flour n  well mixed with oil. 13 o  With the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving he shall bring his offering with loaves of leavened bread. 14And from it he shall offer one loaf from each offering, as a p  gift to the  Lord. q  It shall belong to the priest who throws the blood of the peace offerings. 15And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings r  for thanksgiving shall be eaten on the day of his offering. He shall not leave any of it until the morning. 16But s  if the sacrifice of his offering is a vow offering or a freewill offering, it shall be eaten on the day that he offers his sacrifice, and on the next day what remains of it shall be eaten. 17But what remains of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burned up with fire. 18If any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering is eaten on the third day, he who offers it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be credited to him. It is t  tainted, and he who eats of it shall bear his iniquity.

19Flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten. It shall be burned up with fire. All who are clean may eat flesh, 20but the person who eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of the  Lord’s peace offerings u  while an uncleanness is on him, that person shall be cut off from his people. 21And if anyone touches an unclean thing, whether v  human uncleanness or an w  unclean beast or any x  unclean detestable creature, and then eats some flesh from the sacrifice of the  Lord’s peace offerings, that person shall be cut off from his people.”

22The  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 23Speak to the people of Israel, saying y  You shall eat no fat, of ox or sheep or goat. 24The fat of an animal z  that dies of itself and the fat of one that is torn by beasts may be put to any other use, but on no account shall you eat it. 25For every person who eats of the fat of an animal of which a food offering may be made to the  Lord shall be cut off from his people. 26Moreover, aa  you shall eat no blood whatever, whether of fowl or of animal, in any of your dwelling places. 27Whoever eats any blood, that person shall be cut off from his people.”

28The  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 29Speak to the people of Israel, saying ab  Whoever offers the sacrifice of his peace offerings to the  Lord shall bring his offering to the  Lord from the sacrifice of his peace offerings. 30 ac  His own hands shall bring the  Lord’s food offerings. He shall bring the fat with ad  the breast, that the breast may be waved as a wave offering before the  Lord. 31 ae  The priest shall burn the fat on the altar, but af  the breast shall be for Aaron and his sons. 32And ag  the right thigh you shall give to the priest as a contribution from the sacrifice of your peace offerings. 33Whoever among the sons of Aaron offers the blood of the peace offerings and the fat shall have the right thigh for a portion. 34For the breast that is ah  waved and the thigh that is ai  contributed I have taken from the people of Israel, out of the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and aj  have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons, as a perpetual due from the people of Israel. 35This is the portion of Aaron and of his sons from the  Lord’s food offerings, from the day they were presented to serve as priests of the  Lord. 36The  Lord commanded this to be given them by the people of Israel, ak  from the day that he anointed them. It is a perpetual due throughout their generations.”

37This is the law al  of the burnt offering, of the grain offering, of the sin offering, am  of the guilt offering, an  of the ordination offering, and ao  of the peace offering, 38which the  Lord commanded Moses on Mount Sinai, on the day that he commanded the people of Israel ap  to bring their offerings to the  Lord, in the wilderness of Sinai.
