New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 "These are the instructions for the guilt offering, which is most holy. 1 " 'These are the regulations for the guilt offering, which is most holy:
2 The animal sacrificed as a guilt offering must be slaughtered where the burnt offerings are slaughtered, and its blood sprinkled against the 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 The priest will then offer all its fat on the altar, including the fat from the tail, the fat around the internal organs, 3 All its fat shall be offered: the fat tail and the fat that covers the inner parts,
4 the two kidneys with the fat around them near the loins, and the lobe of the liver, which is to be 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 priests will burn these parts on the altar as an offering to the LORD made by fire. It is a guilt 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 All males from a priest's family may eat the meat, and it must be eaten in a sacred place, for 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 "For both the sin offering and the guilt offering, the meat of the sacrificed animal belongs to the priest in charge of the atonement ceremony. 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 In the case of the whole burnt offering, the hide of the sacrificed animal also belongs to the priest. 8 The priest who offers a burnt offering for anyone may keep its hide for himself.
9 Any grain offering that has been baked in an oven, prepared in a pan, or cooked on a griddle belongs to the priest who presents it. 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 All other grain offerings, whether flour mixed with olive oil or dry flour, are to be shared among all the priests and their sons." 10 and every grain offering, whether mixed with oil or dry, belongs equally to all the sons of Aaron.
11 "These are the instructions regarding the different kinds of peace offerings that may be presented to the LORD. 11 " 'These are the regulations for the fellowship offering a person may present to the LORD:
12 If you present your peace offering as a thanksgiving offering, the usual animal sacrifice must be accompanied by various kinds of bread -- loaves, wafers, and cakes -- all made without yeast and soaked with olive 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 This peace offering of thanksgiving must also be accompanied by loaves of yeast bread. 13 Along with his fellowship offering of thanksgiving he is to present an offering with cakes of bread made with yeast.
14 One of each kind of bread must be presented as a gift to the LORD. This bread will then belong to the priest who sprinkles the altar with blood from the sacrificed animal. 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 The animal's meat must be eaten on the same day it is offered. None of it may be saved for the next morning." 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 "However, if you bring an offering to fulfill a vow or as a freewill offering, the meat may be eaten on that same day, and whatever is left over may be eaten on the second day. 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 anything left over until the third day must be completely 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 this peace offering is eaten on the third day, it will not be accepted by the LORD. It will have no value as a sacrifice, and you will receive no credit for bringing it as an offering. By then, the meat will be contaminated; if you eat it, you will have to answer for your sin." 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 "Meat that touches anything ceremonially unclean may not be eaten; it must be completely burned up. And as for meat that may be eaten, it may only be eaten by people who are ceremonially 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 Anyone who is ceremonially unclean but eats meat from a peace offering that was presented to the LORD must be cut off from the community. 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 If anyone touches anything that is unclean, whether it is human defilement or an unclean animal, and then eats meat from the LORD's sacrifices, that person must be cut off from the community." 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 Then the LORD said to Moses, 22 The LORD said to Moses,
23 "Give the Israelites these instructions: You must never eat fat, whether from oxen 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 killed by a wild animal may never be eaten, though it may be used for any other purpose. 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 Anyone who eats fat from an offering given to the LORD by fire must be cut off from the community. 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 Even in your homes, you must never eat the blood of any bird or animal. 26 And wherever you live, you must not eat the blood of any bird or animal.
27 Anyone who eats blood must be cut off from the community." 27 If anyone eats blood, that person must be cut off from his people.' "
28 Then the LORD said to Moses, 28 The LORD said to Moses,
29 "Give these further instructions to the Israelites: When you present a peace offering to the LORD, bring part of it as a special gift to the LORD. 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 Present it to him with your own hands as an offering given to the LORD by fire. Bring the fat of the animal, together with the breast, and present it to the LORD by lifting it up before him. 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 Then the priest will burn the fat on the altar, but the breast will belong to Aaron and his sons. 31 The priest shall burn the fat on the altar, but the breast belongs to Aaron and his sons.
32 You are to give the right thigh of your peace offering to the priest as a gift. 32 You are to give the right thigh of your fellowship offerings to the priest as a contribution.
33 The right thigh must always be given to the priest who sprinkles the blood and offers the fat of the peace offering. 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 For I have designated the breast and the right thigh for the priests. It is their regular share of the peace offerings brought by the Israelites. 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 This is their share. It has been set apart for Aaron and his descendants from the offerings given to the LORD by fire from the time they were appointed to serve the LORD as priests. 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 The LORD commanded that the Israelites were to give these portions to the priests as their regular share from the time of the priests' anointing. This regulation applies throughout the generations to come." 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 sin offering, the guilt 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 The LORD gave these instructions to Moses on Mount Sinai when he commanded the Israelites to bring their offerings to the LORD 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.
