Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The LORD spoke to Moshe, saying, 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 Speak to Aharon and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of the children of Yisra'el, which they make holy to me, and that they not profane my holy name: I am the LORD. 2 "Tell Aaron and his sons to treat with respect the sacred offerings the Israelites consecrate to me, so they will not profane my holy name. I am the LORD.
3 Tell them, Whoever he be of all your seed throughout your generations, that approaches to the holy things, which the children of Yisra'el make holy to the LORD, having his uncleanness on him, that soul shall be cut off from before me: I am the LORD. 3 "Say to them: 'For the generations to come, if any of your descendants is ceremonially unclean and yet comes near the sacred offerings that the Israelites consecrate to the LORD, that person must be cut off from my presence. I am the LORD.
4 Whatever man of the seed of Aharon is a leper, or has an issue; he shall not eat of the holy things, until he is clean. Whoever touches anything that is unclean by the dead, or a man whose seed goes from him; 4 " 'If a descendant of Aaron has an infectious skin disease or a bodily discharge, he may not eat the sacred offerings until he is cleansed. He will also be unclean if he touches something defiled by a corpse or by anyone who has an emission of semen,
5 or whoever touches any creeping thing, whereby he may be made unclean, or a man of whom he may take uncleanness, whatever uncleanness he has; 5 or if he touches any crawling thing that makes him unclean, or any person who makes him unclean, whatever the uncleanness may be.
6 the soul that touches any such shall be unclean until the even, and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he bathe his flesh in water. 6 The one who touches any such thing will be unclean till evening. He must not eat any of the sacred offerings unless he has bathed himself with water.
7 When the sun is down, he shall be clean; and afterward he shall eat of the holy things, because it is his bread. 7 When the sun goes down, he will be clean, and after that he may eat the sacred offerings, for they are his food.
8 That which dies of itself, or is torn by animals, he shall not eat, to defile himself therewith: I am the LORD. 8 He must not eat anything found dead or torn by wild animals, and so become unclean through it. I am the LORD.
9 They shall therefore keep my charge, lest they bear sin for it, and die therein, if they profane it: I am the LORD who sanctifies them. 9 " 'The priests are to keep my requirements so that they do not become guilty and die for treating them with contempt. I am the LORD, who makes them holy.
10 There shall no stranger eat of the holy thing: a sojourner of the Kohen's, or a hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing. 10 " 'No one outside a priest's family may eat the sacred offering, nor may the guest of a priest or his hired worker eat it.
11 But if a Kohen buy any soul, the purchase of his money, he shall eat of it; and such as are born in his house, they shall eat of his bread. 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.
12 If a Kohen's daughter be married to a stranger, she shall not eat of the heave-offering of the holy things. 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 Kohen's daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no child, and be returned to her father's house, as in her youth, she shall eat of her father's bread: but there shall no stranger eat of it. 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 a man eat of the holy thing unwittingly, then he shall put the fifth part of it to it, and shall give to the Kohen the holy thing. 14 " 'If anyone eats a sacred offering by mistake, he must make restitution to the priest for the offering and add a fifth of the value to it.
15 They shall not profane the holy things of the children of Yisra'el, which they offer to the LORD, 15 The priests must not desecrate the sacred offerings the Israelites present to the LORD
16 and [so] cause them to bear the iniquity that brings guilt, when they eat their holy things: for I am the LORD who sanctifies them. 16 by allowing them to eat the sacred offerings and so bring upon them guilt requiring payment. I am the LORD, who makes them holy.' "
17 The LORD spoke to Moshe, saying, 17 The LORD said to Moses,
18 Speak to Aharon, and to his sons, and to all the children of Yisra'el, and tell them, Whoever he be of the house of Yisra'el, or of the sojourners in Yisra'el, that offers his offering, whether it be any of their vows, or any of their freewill-offerings, which they offer to the LORD for a burnt offering; 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 Israel--presents a gift for a burnt offering to the LORD, either to fulfill a vow or as a freewill offering,
19 that you may be accepted, [you shall offer] a male without blemish, of the bulls, of the sheep, or of the goats. 19 you must present a male without defect from the cattle, sheep or goats in order that it may be accepted on your behalf.
20 But whatever has a blemish, that shall you not offer: for it shall not be acceptable for you. 20 Do not bring anything with a defect, because it will not be accepted on your behalf.
21 Whoever offers a sacrifice of peace-offerings to the LORD to accomplish a vow, or for a freewill-offering, of the herd or of the flock, it shall be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no blemish therein. 21 When anyone brings from the herd or flock a fellowship offering to the LORD to fulfill a special vow or as a freewill offering, it must be without defect or blemish to be acceptable.
22 Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbed, you shall not offer these to the LORD, nor make an offering by fire of them on the altar to the LORD. 22 Do not offer to the LORD the blind, the injured or the maimed, or anything with warts or festering or running sores. Do not place any of these on the altar as an offering made to the LORD by fire.
23 Either a bull or a lamb that has any deformity or lacking in his parts, that may you offer for a freewill-offering; but for a vow it shall not be accepted. 23 You may, however, present as a freewill offering an ox or a sheep that is deformed or stunted, but it will not be accepted in fulfillment of a vow.
24 That which has its stones bruised, or crushed, or broken, or cut, you shall not offer to the LORD; neither shall you do [thus] in your land. 24 You must not offer to the LORD an animal whose testicles are bruised, crushed, torn or cut. You must not do this in your own land,
25 Neither from the hand of a foreigner shall you offer the bread of your God of any of these; because their corruption is in them, there is a blemish in them: they shall not be accepted for you. 25 and you must not accept such animals from the hand of a foreigner and offer them as the food of your God. They will not be accepted on your behalf, because they are deformed and have defects.' "
26 The LORD spoke to Moshe, saying, 26 The LORD said to Moses,
27 When a bull, or a sheep, or a goat, is brought forth, then it shall be seven days under the hen; and from the eighth day and thenceforth it shall be accepted for the offering of an offering made by fire to the LORD. 27 "When a calf, a lamb or a goat is born, it is to remain with its mother for seven days. From the eighth day on, it will be acceptable as an offering made to the LORD by fire.
28 Whether it be cow or ewe, you shall not kill it and its young both in one day. 28 Do not slaughter a cow or a sheep and its young on the same day.
29 When you sacrifice a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD, you shall sacrifice it that you may be accepted. 29 "When you sacrifice a thank offering to the LORD, sacrifice it in such a way that it will be accepted on your behalf.
30 On the same day it shall be eaten; you shall leave none of it until the morning: I am the LORD. 30 It must be eaten that same day; leave none of it till morning. I am the LORD.
31 Therefore shall you keep my mitzvot, and do them: I am the LORD. 31 "Keep my commands and follow them. I am the LORD.
32 You shall not profane my holy name; but I will be made holy among the children of Yisra'el: I am the LORD who makes you holy, 32 Do not profane my holy name. I must be acknowledged as holy by the Israelites. I am the LORD, who makes you holy
33 who brought you out of the land of Mitzrayim, to be your God: I am the LORD. 33 and who brought you out of Egypt to be your God. I am the LORD."
