Leviticus 7

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 1 [Moses speaking:] "Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering; it is most holy.

 2 In the place where they kill the burnt offering, they shall kill the trespass offering: and its blood shall he [the priest] sprinkle around on the altar.

 3 And he shall offer of it all its fat; the rump, and the fat that covers the entrails,

 4 And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the appendage that is above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away:

 5 And the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made by fire to the LORD; it is a trespass offering.

 6 Every male among the priests shall eat it, but only eaten in the holy place for it is most holy.

 7 As is the sin offering, so is the trespass offering; there is one law for them' the priest who makes atonement with them shall have it [to eat].

 8 And the priest who offers any man's burnt offering, have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he has offered.

 9 And all the cereal offering that is baked in the oven, and all that is dressed in the frying pan, and in the pan, shall be the priest's that offers it.

 10 And every cereal offering, mingled with oil, and dry, shall be shared equally among the sons of Aaron.

 11 And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings that he shall offer to the LORD.

 12 If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mingled with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mingled with oil, of fine flour — all fried.

 13 For his offering besides the cakes, he shall offer leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings.

 14 And of it he shall offer one out of the whole offering as a heave offering to the LORD, and it shall be the priest's who sprinkles the blood of the peace offerings.

 15 And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day that it is offered; he shall not leave any of it until the morning.

 16 But if the sacrifice of his offering be a vow, or a voluntary offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offers his sacrifice; and also on the next day the remainder of it shall be eaten:

 17 But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt with fire.

 18 And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings is eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed to him who offers it; it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eats of it shall bear his iniquity.

 19 And the flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten; it shall be burnt with fire: and as for the flesh, all that is clean shall eat of it.

 20 But the soul that eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, that pertain to the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.

 21 Moreover the soul that shall touch any unclean thing, as the uncleanness of man, or any unclean beast, or any abominable unclean thing, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which pertain to the LORD, even that soul shall be cut off from his people."

 22 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

 23 "Speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'You shall eat no manner of fat from the ox, or the sheep, or the goat.

 24 And the fat of the beast that dies of itself, and the fat of what is torn by beasts, may be used in any other use; but you shall in no way eat that fat.

 25 For whoever eats the fat of the beast, of which men have made an offering by fire to the LORD, even the soul who eats it shall be cut off from his people.

 26 Moreover you shall eat no manner of blood, whether it is of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings.

 27 Whatever soul it be that eats any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.'"

 28 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

 29 "Speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'He who offers the sacrifice of his peace offerings to the LORD shall bring his oblation to the LORD of the sacrifice of his peace offerings.

 30 His own hands shall bring the offerings of the LORD made by fire; he shall bring the fat with the breast so that the breast may be waved for a wave offering before the LORD.

 31 And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar, but the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'.

 32 And you shall give the right shoulder to the priest for a heave offering of the sacrifices of your peace offerings.

 33 He among the sons of Aaron, who offers the blood of the peace offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part.

 34 For the wave breast and the heave shoulder I have taken from the children of Israel out of the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons by a decree forever from among the children of Israel.'"

 35 This is the portion of the anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in the day when he presented them to minister to the LORD in the priest's office;

 36 Which the LORD commanded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by an everlasting decree throughout their generations.

 37 This is the law of the burnt offering, of the meat offering, and of the sin offering, and of the trespass offering, and of the consecrations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings;

 38 Which the LORD commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations to the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai.
