Leviticus 7
Douay-Rheims Bible

The Guilt Offering

(Leviticus 5:14-19; Leviticus 6:1-7)

1This also is the law of the sacrifice for a trespass: it is most holy. 2Therefore where the holocaust is immolated, the victim also for a trespass shall be slain: the blood thereof shall be poured round about the altar. 3They shall offer thereof the rump and the fat that covereth the entrails: 4The two little kidneys, and the fat which is by the flanks, and the caul of the liver with the little kidneys. 5And the priest shall burn them upon the altar: it is the burnt sacrifice of the Lord for a trespass. 6Every male of the priestly race, shall eat this flesh in a holy place, because it is most holy. 7As the sacrifice for sin is offered, so is also that for a trespass: the same shall be the law of both these sacrifices. It shall belong to the priest that offereth it. 8The priest that offereth the victim of holocaust, shall have the skin thereof. 9And every sacrifice of flour that is baked in the oven, and whatsoever is dressed on the gridiron, or in the fryingpan, shall be the priest's that offereth it. 10Whether they be tempered with oil, or dry, all the sons of Aaron shall have one as much as another.

The Peace Offering

(Leviticus 3:1-17)

11This is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings that is offered to the Lord. 12If the oblation be for thanksgiving, they shall offer loaves without leaven tempered with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and fine flour fried, and cakes tempered and mingled with oil. 13Moreover loaves of leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanks, which is offered for peace offerings: 14Of which one shall be offered to the Lord for firstfruits, and shall be the priest's that shall pour out the blood of the victim.

15And the flesh of it shall be eaten the same day: neither shall any of it remain until the morning. 16If any man by vow, or of his own accord offer a sacrifice, it shall in like manner be eaten the same day. And if any of it remain until the morrow, it is lawful to eat it. 17But whatsoever shall be found on the third day shall be consumed with fire. 18If any man eat of the flesh of the victim of peace offerings on the third day, the oblation shall be of no effect: neither shall it profit the offerer. Yea rather, whatsoever soul shall defile itself with such meat, shall be guilty of transgression.

19The flesh that hath touched any unclean thing, shall not be eaten: but shall be burnt with fire. He that is clean shall eat of it. 20If any one that is defiled shall eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which is offered to the Lord, he shall be cut off from his people. 21And he that hath touched the uncleanness of man, or of beast, or of any thing that can defile, and shall eat of such kind of flesh: shall be cut off from his people.

Fat and Blood Forbidden

22And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 23Say to the children of Israel: The fat of a sheep, and of an ox, and of a goat you shall not eat. 24The fat of a carcass that hath died of itself, and of a beast that was caught by another beast, you shall have for divers uses. 25If any man eat the fat that should be offered for the burnt sacrifice of the Lord, he shall perish out of his people. 26Moreover you shall not eat the blood of any creature whatsoever, whether of birds or beasts. 27Every one that eateth blood, shall perish from among the people.

The Priests' Portion

28And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 29Speak to the children of Israel, saying: He that offereth a victim of peace offerings to the Lord, let him offer therewith a sacrifice also, that is, the libations thereof. 30He shall hold in his hands the fat of the victim, and the breast. And when he hath offered and consecrated both to the Lord, he shall deliver them to the priest, 31Who shall burn the fat upon the altar. But the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons'. 32The right shoulder also of the victim, of peace offerings shall fall to the priest for firstfruits. 33He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood, and the fat: he shall have the right shoulder also for his portion. 34For the breast that is elevated and the shoulder that is separated I have taken of the children of Israel, from off their victims of peace offerings: and have given them to Aaron the priest, and to his sons, by a law for ever, from all the people of Israel.

35This is the anointing of Aaron and his sons, in the ceremonies of the Lord, in the day when Moses offered them, that they might do the office of priesthood, 36And the things that the Lord commanded to be given them by the children of Israel, by a perpetual observance in their generations.

37This is the law of holocaust, and of the sacrifice for sin, and for trespass, and for consecration, and the victims of peace offerings: 38Which the Lord appointed to Moses in mount Sinai, when he commanded the children of Israel, that they should offer their oblations to the Lord in the desert of Sinai.
