Leviticus 7

Studie

              |

1 And this is the law of the guilt offering; it is a holy of holies.

2 In the place where they slaughter the burnt·​·offering shall they slaughter the guilt offering; and its blood shall he sprinkle on the altar all around.

3 And he shall offer from it all its fat; the tail, and the fat covering the inwards,

4 and the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is on the entrails, and the caul on the liver, on the kidneys, it he shall remove;

5 and the priest shall burn· them ·for·​·incense on the altar for a fire·​·offering to Jehovah; it is a guilt offering.

6 Every male among the priests shall eat of it; it shall be eaten in a holy place: it is a holy of holies.

7 As is the sin offering, so is the guilt offering; there is one law for them: the priest who makes·​·atonement with it shall have it.

8 And the priest who offers a burnt·​·offering for a man, that priest shall have for himself the skin of the burnt·​·offering which he has offered.

9 And all the gift·​·offering that is baked in the oven, and all that is made in the cooking·​·pot, and on the griddle, shall be for the priest offering it.

10 And every gift·​·offering, mixed with oil, and dry, is for all the sons of Aaron, a man as his brother.

11 And this is the law of the sacrifice of the peace·​·offerings, which he shall offer to Jehovah.

12 If he offer it for a confession, then he shall offer upon the sacrifice of confession unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mixed with oil, of bubbled flour.

13 On the cakes, he shall offer his offering of leavened bread upon the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace·​·offerings.

14 And from it he shall offer one from all the offering an uplifting to Jehovah, it shall be for the priest sprinkling the blood of the peace·​·offerings.

15 And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace·​·offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten in the day of his offering; he shall not let· any of it ·stay until morning.

16 But if the sacrifice of his offering be a vow or a freewill offering, it shall be eaten in the day that he offers his sacrifice; and on the morrow even the remainder of it shall be eaten:

17 but the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be burnt·​·up with fire.

18 And if eating there shall be eaten any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace·​·offerings on the third day, it shall not be well·​·pleasing, it shall not be reckoned to him who offers it; it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eats of it shall bear her iniquity.

19 And the flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten; it shall be burnt·​·up with fire; and the flesh, all that be clean shall eat the flesh.

20 But the soul that eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace·​·offerings, that pertain to Jehovah, having his uncleanness upon him, even that soul shall be cut·​·off from his people.

21 And the soul that shall touch any uncleanness, the uncleanness of man, or an unclean beast, or any detestable unclean thing, and eat of the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace·​·offerings, which is for Jehovah, even that soul shall be cut·​·off from his people.

22 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

23 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, You shall eat not any fat of ox, or of sheep, or of goat.

24 And the fat of the carcass, and the fat of that which is torn, may be made use of for any other use; but eating you shall not eat it.

25 For any eating the fat of the beast, of which they offer a fire·​·offering to Jehovah, then the soul who eats it shall be cut·​·off from his peoples.

26 And you shall not eat any blood, of the fowl or of the beast, in any of your dwellings.

27 Any soul who eats any blood, even that soul shall be cut·​·off from his peoples.

28 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

29 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, He who offers the sacrifice of his peace·​·offerings to Jehovah shall bring his offering to Jehovah of the sacrifice of his peace·​·offerings.

30 Let his own hands bring the fire·​·offerings of Jehovah, the fat upon the chest portion, he shall bring it with the chest portion, to wave it as a wave offering before Jehovah.

31 And the priest shall burn· the fat ·for·​·incense on the altar; but the chest portion shall be for Aaron and for his sons.

32 And the right hind·​·quarter you shall give to the priest for an uplifting from the sacrifices of your peace·​·offerings.

33 He among the sons of Aaron, who offers the blood of the peace·​·offerings, and the fat, shall have the right hind·​·quarter for his portion.

34 For I have taken the chest portion of the waving and the hind·​·quarter of the uplifting from the sons of Israel from the sacrifices of their peace·​·offerings, and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons from the sons of Israel, for an eternal statute.

35 This is the anointing of Aaron, and the anointing of his sons, from the fire·​·offerings of Jehovah, in the day he offered them to be·​·priests to Jehovah;

36 which Jehovah commanded to give them from among the sons of Israel, in the day He anointed them, it is an eternal statute for their generations.

37 This is the law of the burnt·​·offering, of the gift·​·offering, and of the sin offering, and of the guilt offering, and of the infillings, and of the sacrifice of the peace·​·offerings;

38 which Jehovah commanded Moses in Mount Sinai, in the day that He commanded the sons of Israel to offer their offerings to Jehovah, in the wilderness of Sinai.
