Portions of Fellowship Offerings for Priests

28 Thenxx Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 29 "Speak to the {Israelites},yy saying, 'The one who presents his fellowship offerings' sacrifice for Yahweh shall bring his offering to Yahweh from his fellowship offerings' sacrifice. 30 His [own] hands must bring Yahweh's offerings made by fire. He must bring the fat in addition to the breast section to wave the breast section [as] a wave offering before Yahweh, 31 and the priest shall turn the fat into smoke on the altar, and the breast section shall be for Aaron and hiszz sons. 32 And the right upper thigh you52 must give [as] a contribution for the priest from your53 fellowship offerings' sacrifice. 33 [As for] the one from Aaron's sons who presents the blood of the fellowship offerings and the fat, the right upper thigh {shall belong to him}54 [as] his share, 34 because I have taken the wave offering's breast section and the contribution [offering's] upper thigh from the {Israelites}55 out of their fellowship offerings' sacrifices, and I have given them to Aaron the priest and his56 sons from the {Israelites}57 [as] a lasting rule.'" 35 This [is] Aaron's allotted portion and his sons' allotted portion from Yahweh's offerings made by fire {when}58 he brought them forward to serve as priests for Yahweh. 36 This is what Yahweh commanded to give them from the {Israelites}59 on the day of his anointing them; [it is] a lasting statute for their generations.
