Leviticus 7

NSB(i) 1 »‘These are the instructions for the guilt offering. It is very holy. 2 »‘It should be slaughtered in the same place where the burnt offering is slaughtered. A priest will throw the blood against all sides of the altar. 3 »‘He will offer all the fat, the fat from the tail, the fat covering the internal organs. 4 »‘That includes the two kidneys with the fat on them. He will also remove the lobe of the liver along with the kidneys. 5 The priest will burn them on the altar. It is a guilt offering by fire to Jehovah. 6 »‘Every male among the priests may eat it. It will be eaten in a holy place. It is very holy. 7 »‘The same instructions apply to the offering for sin and the guilt offering. Both offerings belong to the priest to pay compensation for wrongdoing and make peace with Jehovah. 8 »‘The skin of the burnt offering belongs to the priest who sacrifices it. 9 »‘Every grain offering, whether baked in an oven or prepared in a skillet or a frying pan, belongs to the priest who offers it. 10 »‘Every grain offering, whether mixed with olive oil or dry, will be shared equally by all of Aaron's sons. 11 »‘These are the instructions for the fellowship offering that you must bring to Jehovah. 12 »‘If you offer it as a thank offering, you must also bring rings of unleavened bread mixed with oil, wafers of unleavened bread brushed with oil, and loaves made from flour mixed well with oil. 13 »‘In addition to these rings of bread, you must bring leavened bread (with yeast) along with your fellowship offering of thanksgiving. 14 »‘He will present one of every offering as a contribution to Jehovah. It will belong to the priest who sprinkles the blood of the peace offerings. 15 »‘The flesh of the sacrifice of his thanksgiving peace offerings will be eaten on the day of his offering. He should not leave any of it over until morning. 16 »‘If the sacrifice of his offering is a votive or a freewill offering, it shall be eaten on the day that he offers his sacrifice as well as on the next day. 17 »‘Anything left over from the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burned. 18 »‘If any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings is eaten on the third day, he who offers it will not be accepted. It will not be considered for his benefit. It will be an offensive thing, and the person who eats of it will bear his own iniquity. 19 »‘The flesh that touches anything unclean shall not be eaten. It should be burned with fire. As for other flesh, anyone who is clean may eat such flesh. 20 »‘The person who eats the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings that belong to Jehovah, in his uncleanness, that person will be cut off from his people. 21 »‘When someone touches anything unclean, whether human uncleanness, or an unclean animal, or any unclean detestable thing, and eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings which belong to Jehovah, that person shall be cut off from his people.’« 22 Jehovah continued to speak to Moses: 23 »Tell the Israelites: ‘Never eat any fat from bulls, sheep, or goats. 24 »‘The fat from an animal that dies naturally or is killed by wild animals you may use for any other purpose. However, you must not eat it. 25 »‘Those who eat the fat from an animal they sacrificed by fire to Jehovah must be excluded from the people. 26 »‘Never eat the blood of any bird or animal no matter where you live. 27 »‘Those who eat any blood must be excluded from the people.’« 28 Jehovah spoke to Moses: 29 »Tell the Israelites: ‘Anyone who offers Jehovah a fellowship offering must bring a part of that sacrifice as a gift to Jehovah. 30 »‘Bring the sacrifices by fire made to Jehovah. Bring the fat with the breast. Take the breast and present it to Jehovah. 31 »‘The priest will burn the fat on the altar. However, the breast will belong to Aaron and his sons. 32 »‘You will also give the priest the right thigh as a contribution. 33 »‘When any of Aaron's sons offer the blood and fat of the fellowship offering, the right thigh will belong to him as his share. 34 »‘I have taken the breast and thigh that was presented to me from the contribution offering from the Israelites. I have given them to the priest Aaron and his sons. This is a long lasting law for generations to come. 35 »‘This is the share for Aaron and his sons from the sacrifices by fire made to Jehovah. It was given to them on the day Moses ordained them to serve Jehovah as priests.’« 36 Jehovah commanded the Israelites to give it to them on the day he anointed them. This is a long lasting law for generations to come. 37 These are the instructions for the burnt offering, the grain offering, the offering for sin, the guilt offering, the ordination offering, and the fellowship offering. 38 On Mount Sinai Jehovah gave Moses commands about these offerings. At the same time he commanded the Israelites to bring their offerings to him in the Sinai Desert.
