No lay person shall eat of the sacred donations. No bound or hired servant of the priest shall eat of the sacred donations;
but if a priest acquires anyone by purchase, the person may eat of them; and those that are born in his house may eat of his food.
If a priest's daughter marries a layman, she shall not eat of the offering of the sacred donations;
but if a priest's daughter is widowed or divorced, without offspring, and returns to her father's house, as in her youth, she may eat of her father's food. No lay person shall eat of it.
If a man eats of the sacred donation unintentionally, he shall add one-fifth of its value to it, and give the sacred donation to the priest.
No one shall profane the sacred donations of the people of Israel, which they offer to the Lord,
causing them to bear guilt requiring a guilt offering, by eating their sacred donations: for I am the Lord; I sanctify them.
The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
Speak to Aaron and his sons and all the people of Israel and say to them: When anyone of the house of Israel or of the aliens residing in Israel presents an offering, whether in payment of a vow or as a freewill offering that is offered to the Lord as a burnt offering,
to be acceptable in your behalf it shall be a male without blemish, of the cattle or the sheep or the goats.
You shall not offer anything that has a blemish, for it will not be acceptable in your behalf.
