1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of the sons of Israel, and that they profane not My holy name in those things which they hallow to Me; I am Jehovah.

3 Say to them, Every man from all your seed to your generations, who comes·​·near to the holy things, which the sons of Israel hallow to Jehovah, and his uncleanness upon him, even that soul shall be cut·​·off from before Me; I am Jehovah.

4 A man, a man from the seed of Aaron and he is a leper, or has a flow, shall not eat of the holy things, until he be·​·clean. And whoever touches any thing that is unclean by the soul*, or a man whose laying·​·down of seed goes·​·out from him;

5 or a man who touches any crawling thing, by which he may be·​·made·​·unclean, or man by which he may be·​·made·​·unclean, whatever his uncleanness;

6 the soul which has touched any such shall·​·be·​·unclean until evening, and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he bathe his flesh with water.

7 And when the sun sets, he shall be clean, and shall afterwards eat of the holy things; because it is his bread.

8 The carcass and that which is torn, he shall not eat to defile himself with it; I am Jehovah.

9 And they shall keep My charge, that they not bear sin against it, and die, if they profane it; I, Jehovah, do sanctify them.

10 And not any stranger shall eat of the holy thing; a lodger of the priest, or a hireling, shall not eat of the holy thing.

11 But if a priest buy a soul buying with his silver, he shall eat of it; and he that is born in his house, they shall eat of his bread.

12 And if a daughter of a priest be married to a man, a stranger, she may not eat of an uplifting of the holy things.

13 But when the daughter of the priest is a widow, or driven·​·out, and she has no seed, and returns to the house of her father, as in her youth, she shall eat of the bread of her father; but not any stranger shall eat of it.

14 And if a man eat of the holy thing in ignorance, then he shall add its fifth part over it, and shall give it to the priest with the holy thing.

15 And they shall not profane the holy things of the sons of Israel, which they lift·​·high to Jehovah;

16 or cause them to carry the iniquity of guilt, when they eat their holy things; for I Jehovah do sanctify them.

17 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

18 Speak to Aaron, and to his sons, and to all the sons of Israel, and say to them, A man, a man of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners in Israel, that will offer his offering for all his vows, and for all his freewill offerings, which they will offer to Jehovah for a burnt·​·offering;

19 you shall offer at your own good·​·pleasure a perfect male, among the cattle, among the sheep, or among the goats.

20 Any that has a blemish you shall not offer; for it shall not be well·​·pleasing for you.

21 And when a man offers a sacrifice of peace·​·offerings to Jehovah to make·​·a·​·special vow, or a freewill offering of the herd or of the flock, it shall be perfect for good·​·pleasure; there shall not be any blemish in it.

22 Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a streaming sore, or scabies, or warts, you shall not offer these to Jehovah, nor put a fire·​·offering of them upon the altar to Jehovah.

23 Both an ox and a sheep having any thing too·​·long or too·​·short, it thou mayest make a freewill offering; but for a vow it shall not be well·​·pleasing.

24 And you shall not offer to Jehovah that which is pressed·​·in, or beaten·​·down, or pulled·​·apart, or cut·​·off; and in your land you shall not do this.

25 Neither from the hand of the son of a foreigner shall you offer the bread of your God of any of these; for there is corruption in them, and a blemish is in them; they shall not be well·​·pleasing for you.

26 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

27 When an ox, or a sheep, or a goat, is·​·born, then it shall be seven days under its mother; and from the eighth day and beyond it shall be well·​·pleasing for an offering, a fire·​·offering to Jehovah.

28 And an ox or a sheep, you shall not slaughter it and its young in one day.

29 And when you sacrifice a sacrifice of thanksgiving to Jehovah, sacrifice it at your own good·​·pleasure.

30 In that day it shall be eaten·​·up; you shall let none of it remain until the morning; I am Jehovah.

31 And they shall keep My commandments, and do them; I am Jehovah.

32 Neither shall you profane My holy name; but I will be hallowed in the midst of the sons of Israel; I am Jehovah who hallows you,

33 who brought· you ·out of the land of Egypt, to be your God; I am Jehovah.
