1 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
2 'Speak to Aaron and his sons. They must be consecrated by the holy offerings of the Israelites and must not profane my holy name; for my sake they must sanctify it; I am Yahweh.
Deut 15:19 Lev 18:21 Exod 13:12 Exod 28:38 Lev 19:12 Lev 22:32 Num 18:32
3 Say to them: "Any one of your descendants, for all time, who in a state of uncleanness approaches the holy offerings consecrated to Yahweh by the Israelites, will be outlawed from my presence. I am Yahweh.
Lev 7:20-21 2Thess 1:9 Exod 33:14-15 Matt 25:41 Num 19:13 Ps 16:11 Ps 51:11
4 "Anyone of Aaron's line who is afflicted with a contagious skin-disease or a discharge will not eat holy things until he is clean. Anyone who touches anything made unclean by a dead body, or who has a seminal discharge,
Lev 11:39 Lev 15:2-3 Lev 15:13-16 Lev 21:1 Lev 2:3 Lev 2:10 Lev 6:25-29
5 or who is made unclean by touching any kind of reptile or any one who has contaminated him with his own uncleanness, be it what it may,
Lev 11:43-44 Lev 15:7 Lev 15:19 Lev 11:24-28
6 in short, anyone who has had any such contact will be unclean until evening, and must not eat holy things until he has washed his body.
Heb 10:22 Lev 15:5 1Cor 6:11 Hag 2:13 Lev 11:24-25 Lev 16:24-28 Num 19:7-10
7 At sunset he will be clean and may then eat holy things, for these are his food.
Lev 21:22 1Cor 9:4 1Cor 9:13-14 Deut 18:3-4 Num 18:11-19
8 "He must not eat an animal that has died a natural death or been savaged; he would contract uncleanness from it. I am Yahweh.
Lev 17:15 Exod 22:31 Deut 14:21 Ezek 44:31 Lev 7:24 Lev 11:39-40
9 "They must keep my rules and not burden themselves with sin. If they profane them, they will incur death; I, Yahweh, have sanctified them.
Exod 28:43 Num 18:22 Num 18:32 Lev 10:1-2 Lev 16:2 Lev 22:16
10 "No lay person may eat anything holy; no guest or employee of a priest may eat anything holy.
1Sam 21:6 Matt 12:4 Exod 29:33
11 But if the priest has acquired a slave by purchase, the slave may eat it like anyone born in his household; they will share his food.
Gen 17:13 Exod 12:44 Num 18:11-13
12 "If a priest's daughter marries a layman, she will have no share in the holy things set aside,
Isa 40:13 Lev 21:3
13 but if she is widowed or divorced and, being childless, has had to return to her father's house as when she was young, she may share her father's food. No lay person may share it;
Gen 38:11 Lev 10:14 Num 18:11-19
14 anyone who does eat a holy thing by inadvertence, will restore it to the priest with one-fifth added.
Lev 27:13 Lev 27:15 Lev 5:15-19
15 "They may not profane the holy offerings which the Israelites have set aside for Yahweh.
Num 18:32 Lev 19:8 Ezek 22:26 Lev 22:9
16 By eating these, they would burden them with guilt requiring a sacrifice of reparation; for I, Yahweh, have sanctified these offerings." '
Lev 22:9 1Pet 2:24 Isa 53:11-12 Lev 7:18 Lev 20:8 Ps 38:4
17 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
18 'Speak to Aaron, to his sons, and to all the Israelites and say: "Any member of the House of Israel or any alien resident in Israel who brings an offering either in payment of a vow or as a voluntary gift, and offers it as a burnt offering to Yahweh,
Deut 12:6 Lev 1:2 Num 15:3 Lev 1:10 Acts 18:18 Deut 12:17 Deut 16:10
19 must, if he is to be acceptable, offer an unblemished male, be it bull or sheep or goat.
Lev 1:3 Lev 1:10 1Pet 1:19 1Pet 2:22-24 1Pet 3:18 2Cor 5:21 Eph 5:27
20 You will not offer anything with a blemish, for it would not make you acceptable.
Deut 17:1 Deut 15:21 Mal 1:8 1Pet 1:19 Heb 9:14 Lev 22:25 Mal 1:13-14
21 "If anyone offers Yahweh a communion sacrifice, either to fulfil a vow or as a voluntary offering, the animal, be it from the herd or flock, must be perfect, if he is to be acceptable; it must be unblemished.
Num 15:3 Num 15:8 Lev 3:6 Deut 23:21-23 Eccl 5:4-5 Lev 3:1 Gen 28:20
22 You will not offer Yahweh any animal which is blind, lame, mutilated, ulcerous, scabby or covered in sores. No part of such an animal will be offered on the altar as food burnt for Yahweh.
Lev 22:20 Lev 1:9 Lev 1:13 Lev 3:3 Lev 3:5 Mal 1:8 Lev 21:18-21
23 As a voluntary offering, you may offer a bull or a lamb that is underdeveloped or deformed; but such will not be acceptable in payment of a vow.
24 You will not offer Yahweh an animal if its testicles have been bruised, crushed, torn or cut off. You may not do that in your country,
Lev 22:20 Deut 23:1 Lev 21:20
25 and you may not accept any such from the hands of a stranger, to be offered as food for your God. Their deformity is a blemish, and they would not make you acceptable." '
Lev 21:6 Lev 21:8 1John 5:18 Eph 2:12 Ezra 6:8-10 Lev 21:21-22 Mal 1:7-8
26 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
27 'A calf, lamb, or kid will stay with its dam for seven days after being born. From the eighth day onwards, it will be acceptable as food burnt for Yahweh.
Exod 22:30 Lev 12:2-3 Lev 19:23-24 Lev 22:25
28 But no animal, whether cow or ewe, will be slaughtered on the same day as its young.
Deut 22:6-7 Deut 14:21 Exod 23:19 Exod 34:26
29 'If you offer Yahweh a sacrifice with praise, do it in the acceptable manner;
Ps 107:22 Amos 4:5 Ps 116:17 1Pet 2:5 Heb 13:15 Hos 14:2 Lev 7:12-15
30 it must be eaten the same day; you will leave nothing over till next morning. I am Yahweh.

31 'You will keep my commands and put them into practice. I am Yahweh.
Deut 4:40 Lev 19:37 Num 15:40 1Thess 4:1-2 Lev 18:4-5
32 You will not profane my holy name -- so that I may be honoured as holy among the Israelites, I, Yahweh, who make you holy,
Lev 18:21 Lev 10:3 Lev 20:8 Lev 21:8 Lev 21:15 Lev 22:2 1Cor 1:2
33 I who brought you out of Egypt, to be your God, I, Yahweh.'
