Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
11 but if a priest buys a slave as his property for money, the slave may eat of it; and those that are born in his house may eat of his food. 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 priest's daughter is married to an outsider she shall not eat of the 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 priest's daughter is a widow or divorced, and has no child, and returns to her father's house, as in her youth, she may eat of her father's food; yet no outsider shall 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 And if a man eats of a holy thing unwittingly, he shall add the fifth of its value to it, and give the holy thing to the priest. 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 The priests shall not profane the holy things of the people of Israel, 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 iniquity and guilt, by eating their holy things: for I am the LORD who sanctify 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 And the LORD said to Moses, 17 The LORD said to Moses,
18 "Say to Aaron and his sons and all the people of Israel, When any one of the house of Israel or of the sojourners in Israel presents his offering, whether in payment of a vow or as a freewill offering which is offered to the LORD as 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 to be accepted you shall offer a male without blemish, of the bulls or the sheep or 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 You shall not offer anything that has a blemish, for it will not be acceptable for you. 20 Do not bring anything with a defect, because it will not be accepted on your behalf.
21 And when any one offers a sacrifice of peace offerings to the LORD, to fulfil a vow or as a freewill offering, from the herd or from the flock, to be accepted it must be perfect; there shall be no blemish in it. 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.
