14 " 'If anyone eats a sacred offering by mistake,1 he must make restitution to the priest for the offering and add a fifth of the value2 to it. 15 The priests must not desecrate the sacred offerings3 the Israelites present to the LORD 4 16 by allowing them to eat5 the sacred offerings and so bring upon them guilt6 requiring payment.7 I am the LORD, who makes them holy.8' "
