Laws concerning the trespass offering, v. 1, etc. Declaring withal what fell to the priest’s share, both thereof and of some other sacrifices, 7. Laws concerning peace offerings, 11. As well of praise offering, 12. As of vow offering, and freewill offering, 16. The eating of the fat forbidden, together with a declaration, what fat might be made use of for other things, 22. The eating of blood forbidden, 26. Still another appendix concerning thank-offerings, 28. The conclusion of all the former laws, 35.
LIKEWISE this is the law 1of the trespass offering: it is 2most holy.
3In the place where 4they kill the 5burnt offering shall they kill the trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall 6he sprinkle round about upon the altar.
And he shall offer of it all the fat thereof; the rump, and the fat that covereth the inwards,
And the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the flanks, and the caul that is above the liver, 7with the kidneys, it shall he take away:
And the priest shall burn them upon the altar for an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a trespass offering.
Every male among the priests shall eat thereof: it shall be eaten 8in the holy place: it is most holy.
As the sin offering is, so is the trespass offering: there is one law for them: the priest that 9maketh atonement therewith shall have 10it.
And the priest that offereth any man's burnt offering, even the priest shall have to himself the skin of the burnt offering which he hath offered.
And all the meat offering that is baken in the oven, and all that is dressed in the fryingpan, and in the pan, shall be the priest's that offereth it.
And every meat offering, mingled with oil, and 11dry, shall all the sons of Aaron have, 12one as much as another.
And this is the law 13of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which he shall offer unto the LORD.
If he offer it for aa14thanksgiving, 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, 15fried.
Besides the cakes, he shall offer for his offering leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offerings.
And of it he shall offer 16one out of the whole oblation for an 17heave offering unto the LORD, and 18it shall be the priest's that sprinkleth the blood of the peace offerings.
And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day 19that it is offered; he shall not leave any of it until the morning.
But if the sacrifice of his offering be a 20vow, or a 21voluntary offering, itb shall be eaten the same day that he offereth his sacrifice: and on the morrow also the remainder of it shall be eaten:
But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt with fire.
And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings 22be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be 23accepted, neither shall it be 24imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be 25an abomination, and 26the soul that eateth of it shall bear 27his iniquity.
And 28the flesh that toucheth any unclean thing shall not be eaten; it shall be burnt with fire: and 29as for the flesh, 30all that be clean shall eat thereof.
But the soul that eatethcof the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, that pertain unto the LORD, having his 31uncleanness upon him, even that soul shall be cut off 32from his people.
Moreover the soul that shall touch any unclean thing, as the uncleanness of man, or any unclean beast, or any 33abominable unclean thing, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which pertain unto the LORD, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.
¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat 34no manner of fat, of ox, or of sheep, or of goat.
And the fat of the beast that dieth of itself, and the fat of that which is torn with beasts, 35may be used 36in any other use: 37but ye shall in no wise eat of it.
For whosoever eateth the fat of the beast, of which men offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, even the soul that eateth it shall be cut off from his people.
Moreoverd ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings.
Whatsoever soul it be that eateth any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.
¶And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, He that offereth the sacrifice of his peace offerings unto the LORD 38shall bring his oblation unto the LORD 39of the sacrifice of his peace offerings.
His own hands shall bring the offerings of the LORD made by fire, the fat 40with the breast, it shall he bring, thate the breast may be waved for a 41wave offering before the LORD.
And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar: but the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'.
And the right shoulder shall ye give unto the priest for an heave offering of the sacrifices of your peace offerings.
He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood of the peace offerings, and the fat, shall have the 42right shoulder for his part.
For thef43wave breast and the 44heave shoulder have I taken of the children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons by a statute 45for ever from among the children of Israel.
¶This is the portion of the 46anointing of Aaron, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, 47in the day when 48he presented them to minister unto the LORD in the priest's office;
49Which the LORD commanded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, by a statute for ever throughout their generations.
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 50consecrations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings;
Which the LORD commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations unto the LORD, in the wilderness of Sinai.
