Leviticus 7
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1“And this [is] a law of the guilt-offering: it [is] most holy; 2in the place where they slaughter the burnt-offering they slaughter the guilt-offering, and he sprinkles its blood on the altar all around, 3and he brings near all its fat from it, the fat tail, and the fat which is covering the innards, 4and the two kidneys, and the fat which [is] on them, which [is] on the flanks, and the redundance on the liver above the kidneys—he turns it aside; 5and the priest has made them an incense on the altar, a fire-offering to YHWH; it [is] a guilt-offering. 6Every male among the priests eats it; it is eaten in a holy place—it [is] most holy; 7as [is] a sin-offering, so [is] a guilt-offering; one law [is] for them; the priest who makes atonement by it—it is his. 8And the priest who is bringing any man’s burnt-offering near, the skin of the burnt-offering which he has brought near, it is the priest’s, his own; 9and every present which is baked in an oven, and all done in a frying-pan, and on a griddle, [is] the priest’s who is bringing it near; it is his; 10and every present, mixed with oil or dry, is for all the sons of Aaron—one as another.

11And this [is] a law of the sacrifice of the peace-offerings which [one] brings near to YHWH: 12if he brings it near for a thank-offering, then he has brought near with the sacrifice of thank-offering unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and thin unleavened cakes anointed with oil, and of stirred flour cakes mixed with oil; 13besides the cakes, he brings fermented bread near [with] his offering, besides the sacrifice of thank-offering of his peace-offerings; 14and he has brought near from it one [cake] from every offering [as] a raised-offering to YHWH for the priest who is sprinkling the blood of the peace-offerings; it is for him;

15as for the flesh of the sacrifice of the thank-offering of his peace-offerings, it is eaten in the day of his offering; he does not leave of it until morning. 16And if the sacrifice of his offering [is] a vow or free-will offering, it is eaten in the day of his bringing his sacrifice near; and on the next day the remnant of it is also eaten; 17and the remnant of the flesh of the sacrifice is burned with fire on the third day; 18and if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace-offerings is eaten at all on the third day, it is not pleasing; it is not reckoned for him who is bringing it near; it is an abomination, and the person who is eating of it bears his iniquity.

19And the flesh which comes against any unclean thing is not eaten; it is burned with fire; as for the flesh, every clean one eats of the flesh; 20and the person who eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace-offerings which [are] YHWH’s, and his uncleanness [is] on him, indeed, that person has been cut off from his people. 21And when a person comes against anything unclean, of the uncleanness of man, or of the uncleanness of beasts, or of any unclean teeming creature, and has eaten of the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace-offerings which [are] YHWH’s, indeed, that person has been cut off from his people.”

22And YHWH speaks to Moses, saying, 23“Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, You do not eat any fat of ox, and sheep, and goat; 24and the fat of a carcass, and the fat of a torn thing, is prepared for any work, but you certainly do not eat it; 25for whoever eats the fat of the beast, of which [one] brings near [as] a fire-offering to YHWH, indeed, the person who eats [it] has been cut off from his people. 26And you do not eat any blood in all your dwellings, of bird, or of beast; 27any person who eats any blood, indeed, that person has been cut off from his people.”

28And YHWH speaks to Moses, saying, 29“Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, He who is bringing the sacrifice of his peace-offerings near to YHWH brings in his offering to YHWH from the sacrifice of his peace-offerings; 30his own hands bring in the fire-offerings of YHWH; the fat beside the breast—he brings it in with the breast to wave it [as] a wave-offering before YHWH. 31And the priest has made incense with the fat on the altar, and the breast has been Aaron’s and his sons; 32and you give the right leg to the priest [as] a raised-offering of the sacrifices of your peace-offerings; 33he from the sons of Aaron who is bringing the blood of the peace-offerings and the fat near—the right leg is for a portion for him. 34For I have taken the breast of the wave-offering and the leg of the raised-offering from the sons of Israel, from the sacrifices of their peace-offerings, and I give them to Aaron the priest, and to his sons, by a continuous statute, from the sons of Israel.”

35This [is] an anointed portion [for] Aaron, and an anointed portion [for] his sons out of the fire-offerings of YHWH, in the day he has brought them near to act as priest of YHWH, 36which YHWH has commanded to give to them from the sons of Israel, in the day of His anointing them—a continuous statute throughout their generations.

37This [is] the law for burnt-offering, for present, and for sin-offering, and for guilt-offering, and for consecrations, and for a sacrifice of the peace-offerings, 38which YHWH has commanded Moses in Mount Sinai, in the day of His commanding the sons of Israel to bring their offerings near to YHWH, in the wilderness of Sinai.
