Leviticus 7

The Priest’s Part in the Offerings

Now this is the law of the a guilt offering; it is most holy. ‘In b the place where they slay the burnt offering they are to slay the guilt offering, and he shall sprinkle its blood around on the altar. Then he shall offer from it all its fat: the c fat tail and the fat that covers the entrails, and the two kidneys with the fat that is on them, which is on the loins, and the lobe on the liver he shall remove d with the kidneys. The priest shall offer them up in smoke on the altar as an offering by fire to the  Lord; it is a guilt offering. e Every male among the priests may eat of it. It shall be eaten in a holy place; it is most holy. The guilt offering is like the f sin offering, there is one law for them; the g priest who makes atonement with it
Lit it shall be for him
shall have it.
Also the priest who presents any man’s burnt offering,
Lit for the priest, it shall be for him
that priest shall have for himself the skin of the burnt offering which he has presented.
Likewise, every grain offering that is baked in the oven and everything prepared in a
Lit lidded cooking pan
pan or on a k griddle
Lit for the priest, it shall be for him
shall belong to the priest who presents it.
10 Every grain offering, mixed with oil or dry, shall
Lit be
belong to all the sons of Aaron,
Lit a man as his brother
to all alike.

11 Now this is the law of the o sacrifice of peace offerings which shall be presented to the  Lord. 12 If he offers it by way of p thanksgiving, then along with the sacrifice of thanksgiving he shall offer q unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers
Or anointed
spread with oil, and cakes of well stirred fine flour mixed with oil.
13 With the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving, he shall present his offering with cakes of s leavened bread. 14 ‘Of
Lit it
this he shall present one of every offering as a
Or heave offering
contribution to the  Lord; v it shall
Lit be for
belong to the priest who sprinkles the blood of the peace offerings.

15 x Now as for the flesh of the sacrifice of his thanksgiving peace offerings, it shall be eaten on the day of his offering; he shall not leave any of it over until morning. 16 But if the sacrifice of his offering is a y votive or a freewill offering, it shall be eaten on the day that he offers his sacrifice, and on the
Lit morrow and what
next day what is left of it may be eaten;
17  aa but what is left over from the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burned with fire. 18 So if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings should ever be eaten on the third day, he who offers it will not be accepted, and it will not be reckoned to his benefit. It shall be an ab offensive thing, and the person who eats of it will bear his own iniquity.

19 Also the flesh that touches anything unclean shall not be eaten; it shall be burned with fire.
Lit And the flesh
As for other flesh, anyone who is clean may eat such flesh.
20 ad But the person who eats the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings which belong to the  Lord,
Lit and his uncleanness is on him
in his uncleanness, that person af shall be cut off from his people.
21 ag When anyone touches anything unclean, whether human uncleanness, or an unclean animal, or any unclean
Some mss read swarming thing
detestable thing, and eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings which belong to the  Lord, that person shall be cut off from his people.’”

22 Then the  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 23 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘You shall not eat ai any fat from an ox, a sheep or a goat. 24 Also the fat of an animal which dies and the fat of an animal aj torn by beasts may be put to any other use, but you must certainly not eat it. 25 For whoever eats the fat of the animal from which
Lit he offers an offering by fire
an offering by fire is offered to the  Lord, even the person who eats shall be cut off from his people.
26 al You are not to eat any blood, either of bird or animal, in any of your dwellings. 27 Any person who eats any blood, even that person shall be cut off from his people.’”

28 Then the  Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 29 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘He who offers am the sacrifice of his peace offerings to the  Lord shall bring his offering to the  Lord from the sacrifice of his peace offerings. 30 His own hands are to bring offerings by fire to the  Lord. He shall bring the fat with the breast, that the an breast may be
Lit waved
presented as a wave offering before the  Lord.
31 The priest shall offer up the fat in smoke on the altar, but ap the breast shall belong to Aaron and his sons. 32 You shall give aq the right thigh to the priest as a
Or heave offering
contribution from the sacrifices of your peace offerings.
33 The one among the sons of Aaron who offers the blood of the peace offerings and the fat, the right thigh shall be his as his portion. 34 For I have taken as the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the
Or heave offering
contribution from the sons of Israel from the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons as their due forever from the sons of Israel.

35 This is
Lit the anointed portion of
that which is consecrated to Aaron and
Lit the anointed portion of
that aw which is consecrated to his sons from the offerings by fire to the  Lord, in that day when he presented them to serve as priests to the  Lord.
36 
Lit Which
These the  Lord had commanded to be given them from the sons of Israel in the day that He ay anointed them. It is their due forever throughout their generations.’”

37 This is the law of the burnt offering, the grain offering and the sin offering and the guilt offering and az the ordination offering and the sacrifice of peace offerings, 38  ba which the  Lord commanded Moses at Mount Sinai in the day that He commanded the sons of Israel to
Or offer
present their offerings to the  Lord in the wilderness of Sinai.
