Leviticus 22:11-21 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
11 But if a priest buys a slave with money, or if a slave is born in his household, that slave may eat his food.1 12 If a priest's daughter marries anyone other than a priest, she may not eat any of the sacred contributions. 13 But if a priest's daughter becomes a widow or is divorced, yet has no children, and she returns to live in her father's house as in her youth, she may eat of her father's food. No unauthorized person, however, may eat any of it. 14 " 'If anyone eats a sacred offering by mistake,2 he must make restitution to the priest for the offering and add a fifth of the value3 to it. 15 The priests must not desecrate the sacred offerings4 the Israelites present to the LORD 5 16 by allowing them to eat6 the sacred offerings and so bring upon them guilt7 requiring payment.8 I am the LORD, who makes them holy.9' "

Unacceptable Sacrifices

17 The LORD said to Moses, 18 "Speak to Aaron and his sons and to all the Israelites and say to them: 'If any of you--either an Israelite or an alien living in Israel10--presents a gift11 for a burnt offering to the LORD, either to fulfill a vow12 or as a freewill offering,13 19 you must present a male without defect14 from the cattle, sheep or goats in order that it may be accepted on your behalf.15 20 Do not bring anything with a defect,16 because it will not be accepted on your behalf.17 21 When anyone brings from the herd or flock18 a fellowship offeringa19 to the LORD to fulfill a special vow or as a freewill offering,20 it must be without defect or blemish21 to be acceptable.22
