The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 "These are the instructions for the Compensation-Offering. It is most holy. 1 " 'These are the regulations for the guilt offering, which is most holy:
2 Slaughter the Compensation-Offering in the same place that the Whole-Burnt-Offering is slaughtered. Splash its blood against all sides of the Altar. 2 The guilt offering is to be slaughtered in the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered, and its blood is to be sprinkled against the altar on all sides.
3 Offer up all the fat: the fat tail, the fat covering the entrails, 3 All its fat shall be offered: the fat tail and the fat that covers the inner parts,
4 the two kidneys and the fat encasing them at the loins, and the lobe of the liver that is removed with the kidneys. 4 both kidneys with the fat on them near the loins, and the covering of the liver, which is to be removed with the kidneys.
5 The priest burns them on the Altar as a gift to God. It is a Compensation-Offering. 5 The priest shall burn them on the altar as an offering made to the LORD by fire. It is a guilt offering.
6 Any male from among the priests' families may eat it. But it must be eaten in a holy place; it is most holy. 6 Any male in a priest's family may eat it, but it must be eaten in a holy place; it is most holy.
7 "The Compensation-Offering is the same as the Absolution-Offering - the same rules apply to both. The offering belongs to the priest who makes atonement with it. 7 " 'The same law applies to both the sin offering and the guilt offering: They belong to the priest who makes atonement with them.
8 The priest who presents a Whole-Burnt-Offering for someone gets the hide for himself. 8 The priest who offers a burnt offering for anyone may keep its hide for himself.
9 Every Grain-Offering baked in an oven or prepared in a pan or on a griddle belongs to the priest who presents it. It's his. 9 Every grain offering baked in an oven or cooked in a pan or on a griddle belongs to the priest who offers it,
10 Every Grain-Offering, whether dry or mixed with oil, belongs equally to all the sons of Aaron. 10 and every grain offering, whether mixed with oil or dry, belongs equally to all the sons of Aaron.
11 "These are the instructions for the Peace-Offering which is presented to God. 11 " 'These are the regulations for the fellowship offering a person may present to the LORD:
12 If you bring it to offer thanksgiving, then along with the Thanksgiving-Offering present unraised loaves of bread mixed with oil, unraised wafers spread with oil, and cakes of fine flour, well-kneaded and mixed with oil. 12 " 'If he offers it as an expression of thankfulness, then along with this thank offering he is to offer cakes of bread made without yeast and mixed with oil, wafers made without yeast and spread with oil, and cakes of fine flour well-kneaded and mixed with oil.
13 Along with the Peace-Offering of thanksgiving, present loaves of yeast bread as an offering. 13 Along with his fellowship offering of thanksgiving he is to present an offering with cakes of bread made with yeast.
14 Bring one of each kind as an offering, a Contribution-Offering to God; it goes to the priest who throws the blood of the Peace-Offering. 14 He is to bring one of each kind as an offering, a contribution to the LORD; it belongs to the priest who sprinkles the blood of the fellowship offerings.
15 Eat the meat from the Peace-Offering of thanksgiving the same day it is offered. Don't leave any of it overnight. 15 The meat of his fellowship offering of thanksgiving must be eaten on the day it is offered; he must leave none of it till morning.
16 "If the offering is a Votive-Offering or a Freewill-Offering, it may be eaten the same day it is sacrificed and whatever is left over on the next day may also be eaten. 16 " 'If, however, his offering is the result of a vow or is a freewill offering, the sacrifice shall be eaten on the day he offers it, but anything left over may be eaten on the next day.
17 But any meat from the sacrifice that is left to the third day must be burned up. 17 Any meat of the sacrifice left over till the third day must be burned up.
18 If any of the meat from the Peace-Offering is eaten on the third day, the person who has brought it will not be accepted. It won't benefit him a bit - it has become defiled meat. And whoever eats it must take responsibility for his iniquity. 18 If any meat of the fellowship offering is eaten on the third day, it will not be accepted. It will not be credited to the one who offered it, for it is impure; the person who eats any of it will be held responsible.
19 Don't eat meat that has touched anything ritually unclean; burn it up. Any other meat can be eaten by those who are ritually clean. 19 " 'Meat that touches anything ceremonially unclean must not be eaten; it must be burned up. As for other meat, anyone ceremonially clean may eat it.
20 But if you're not ritually clean and eat meat from the Peace-Offering for God, you will be excluded from the congregation. 20 But if anyone who is unclean eats any meat of the fellowship offering belonging to the LORD, that person must be cut off from his people.
21 And if you touch anything ritually unclean, whether human or animal uncleanness or an obscene object, and go ahead and eat from a Peace-Offering for God, you'll be excluded from the congregation." 21 If anyone touches something unclean--whether human uncleanness or an unclean animal or any unclean, detestable thing--and then eats any of the meat of the fellowship offering belonging to the LORD, that person must be cut off from his people.' "
22 God spoke to Moses, 22 The LORD said to Moses,
23 "Speak to the People of Israel. Tell them, Don't eat any fat of cattle or sheep or goats. 23 "Say to the Israelites: 'Do not eat any of the fat of cattle, sheep or goats.
24 The fat of an animal found dead or torn by wild animals can be put to some other purpose, but you may not eat it. 24 The fat of an animal found dead or torn by wild animals may be used for any other purpose, but you must not eat it.
25 If you eat fat from an animal from which a gift has been presented to God, you'll be excluded from the congregation. 25 Anyone who eats the fat of an animal from which an offering by fire may be made to the LORD must be cut off from his people.
26 And don't eat blood, whether of birds or animals, no matter where you end up living. 26 And wherever you live, you must not eat the blood of any bird or animal.
27 If you eat blood you'll be excluded from the congregation." 27 If anyone eats blood, that person must be cut off from his people.' "
28 God spoke to Moses, 28 The LORD said to Moses,
29 "Speak to the People of Israel. Tell them: When you present a Peace-Offering to God, bring some of your Peace-Offering as a special sacrifice to God, 29 "Say to the Israelites: 'Anyone who brings a fellowship offering to the LORD is to bring part of it as his sacrifice to the LORD.
30 a gift to God in your own hands. Bring the fat with the breast and then wave the breast before God as a Wave-Offering. 30 With his own hands he is to bring the offering made to the LORD by fire; he is to bring the fat, together with the breast, and wave the breast before the LORD as a wave offering.
31 The priest will burn the fat on the Altar; Aaron and his sons get the breast. 31 The priest shall burn the fat on the altar, but the breast belongs to Aaron and his sons.
32 Give the right thigh from your Peace-Offerings as a Contribution-Offering to the priest. 32 You are to give the right thigh of your fellowship offerings to the priest as a contribution.
33 Give a portion of the right thigh to the son of Aaron who offers the blood and fat of the Peace-Offering as his portion. 33 The son of Aaron who offers the blood and the fat of the fellowship offering shall have the right thigh as his share.
34 From the Peace-Offerings of Israel, I'm giving the breast of the Wave-Offering and the thigh of the Contribution-Offering to Aaron the priest and his sons. This is their fixed compensation from the People of Israel." 34 From the fellowship offerings of the Israelites, I have taken the breast that is waved and the thigh that is presented and have given them to Aaron the priest and his sons as their regular share from the Israelites.' "
35 From the day they are presented to serve as priests to God, Aaron and his sons can expect to receive these allotments from the gifts of God. 35 This is the portion of the offerings made to the LORD by fire that were allotted to Aaron and his sons on the day they were presented to serve the LORD as priests.
36 This is what God commanded the People of Israel to give the priests from the day of their anointing. This is the fixed rule down through the generations. 36 On the day they were anointed, the LORD commanded that the Israelites give this to them as their regular share for the generations to come.
37 These are the instructions for the Whole-Burnt-Offering, the Grain-Offering, the Absolution-Offering, the Compensation-Offering, the Ordination-Offering, and the Peace-Offering 37 These, then, are the regulations for the burnt offering, the grain offering, the sin offering, the guilt offering, the ordination offering and the fellowship offering,
38 which God gave Moses at Mount Sinai on the day he commanded the People of Israel to present their offerings to God in the wilderness of Sinai. 38 which the LORD gave Moses on Mount Sinai on the day he commanded the Israelites to bring their offerings to the LORD, in the Desert of Sinai.
