Leviticus Chapter 7 and Chapter 8

Chapter 7: The Law of the Trespass Offering

1 “Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering (it is most qodesh). 2 In the place where they kill the burnt offering, they shall kill the trespass offering. And its blood he shall sprinkle all around the altar. 3 And he shall offer from it all its fat. The fat tail and the fat that covers the entrails. 4 The two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the flanks. And the fatty lobe attached to the liver above the kidneys, he shall remove. 5 And the priest shall burn them on the altar as an offering made by fire to Yah. It is a trespass offering. 6 Every male among the priests may eat it. It shall be eaten in a qodesh place. It is most qodesh. 7 The trespass offering is like the sin offering, there is one law for them both. The priest who makes atonement with it shall have it. 8 And the priest who offers anyone’s burnt offering, that priest shall have for himself the skin of the burnt offering which he has offering. 9 Also every grain offering that is baked in the oven and all that is prepared in the covered pan or in a pan shall be the priest’s who offers it. 10 Every grain offering, whether mixed with oil or dry, shall belong to all the sons of Aharon, to one as much as the other”.

The Law of Peace Offering

11 “This is the law of the of the sacrifice of peace offerings which he shall offer to Yah. 12 If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving, unleavened cakes mixed with oil, unleavened wafers anointed with oil or cakes of blended flour mixed with oil. 13 Besides the cakes, as his offering he shall offer leavened bread with the sacrifice of thanksgiving of his peace offering. 14 And from it he shall offer one cake from each offering as a heave offering to Yah. It shall belong to the priest who sprinkles the blood of the peace offering. 15 The flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day it is offered. He shall not leave any of it until morning. 16 But if the sacrifice of his offering is a vow or a voluntary offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offers his sacrifice but on the next day the remainder of it also may be eaten. 17  The remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day must be burned with fire. 18 And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offering is eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted nor shall it be imputed to him. It shall be an abomination to him who offers it and the person who eats of it shall bear guilt. 19 The flesh that touches any unclean thing shall not be eaten. It shall be burned with fire. And as for the clean flesh, all who are clean may eat of it. 20 But the person who eats the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace offering that belongs to Yah, while he is unclean, that person shall be cut off from his people. 21 Moreover, the person who touches any unclean thing, such as human uncleanness, an unclean animal or any abominable unclean thing (or swarming thing, compare to 5:2) and who eats the flesh of the sacrifice of the peace offering that belongs to Yah, that person shall be cut off from his people”.

Fat and Blood May Not Be Eaten

22 And Yah spoke to Moshe saying: 23 “Speak to the children of Ysrayl saying, you shall not eat any fat of ox or sheep or goat. 24 And the fat of an animal that dies naturally and the fat of what is torn by wild beasts, may be used in any other way but you shall by no means eat it. 25 For whoever eats the fat of the animal of which men offer an offering made by fire to Yah, the person who eats it shall be cut off from his people. 26 Moreover, you shall not eat any blood in any of your dwellings, whether of bird or beast. 27 Whoever eats any blood, that person shall be cut off from his people”.

The Portion of Aharon and His Sons

28 Then Yah spoke to Moshe saying: 29 “Speak to the children of Ysrayl saying, he who offers the sacrifice of his peace offering to Yah shall bring his offering to Yah from the sacrifice of his peace offering. 30 His own hands shall bring the offerings made by fire to Yah. The fat with the breast he shall bring, that the beast may be waved as a wave offering before Yah. 31 And the priest shall burn the fat on the altar but the breast shall be Aharon’s and his son’s. 32 Also the right thigh you shall give to the priest as a heave offering from the sacrifices of your peace offerings. 33 He among the sons of Aharon, who offers the blood of the peace offering and the fat, shall have the right thigh for his part. 34 For the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the heave offering I have taken from the children of Ysrayl, from the sacrifices of their peace offerings and I have given them to Aharon the priest and to his sons from the children of Ysrayl by a statute forever. 35 This is the consecrated portion for Aharon and his sons, from the offerings made by fire to Yah, on the day when Moshe presented them to minister to Yah as priests. 36 Yah commanded this to be given to them by the children of Ysrayl, on the day that He anointed them, by a statute forever throughout their generations. 37 This is the law of the burnt offering, the grain offering, the sin offering, the trespass offering, the consecrations and the sacrifice of the peace offering. 38 Which Yah commanded Moshe on Mount Sinai, on the day when He commanded the children of Ysrayl to offer their offerings to Yah in the Wilderness of Sinai”.

Chapter 8: Aharon and His Sons Consecrated (The Ceremony for Ordaining Priests)

1 And Yah spoke to Moshe saying: 2 “Take Aharon and his sons with him and the garments, the anointing oil, a bull as the sin offering, two rams and a basket of unleavened bread. 3 And gather all the congregation together at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. 4 So Moshe did as Yah commanded him. And the congregation was gathered together at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. 5 And Moshe said to the congregation, ‘this is what Yah commanded be done’. 6 Then Moshe brought Aharon and his sons and washed them with water. 7 And he put the tunic on him, girded him with the sash, clothed him with the robe and put the ephod on him and he girded him with the intricately woven band of the ephod and with it tied the ephod on him. 8 Then he put the breastplate on him and he put the Urim and the Thummim (literally the lights and the perfections, compare to Exodus 28:30) in the breastplate. 9 And he put the turban on his head. Also on the turban, on its front, he put the golden plate, the qodesh crown, as Yah had commanded Moshe. 10 Also Moshe took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it and consecrated them. 11 He sprinkled some of it on the altar seven times, anointing the altar and all its utensils and the laver and its base, to consecrate them. 12 And he poured some of the anointing oil on Aharon’s head and anointed him, to consecrate him. 13 Then Moshe brought Aharon’s sons and put tunics on them, girded them with sashes and put hats on them, as Yah had commanded Moshe. 14 And he brought the bull for the sin offering. Then Aharon and his sons laid their hands on the head of the bull for the sin offering. 15 And Moshe killed it. Then he took the blood and put some on the horns of the altar all around with his finger and purified the altar. And he poured the blood at the base of the altar and consecrated it, to make atonement for it. 16 Then he took all the fat that was on the entrails, the fatty lobe attached to the liver and the two kidneys with their fat and Moshe burned them on the altar.

17 But the bull, its hide, its flesh and its offal, he burned with fire outside the camp, as Yah had commanded Moshe. 18 Then he brought the ram as the burnt offering. And Aharon and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram. 19 And Moshe killed it. Then he sprinkled the blood all around on the altar. 20 And he cut the ram into pieces and Moshe burned the head, the pieces and the fat. 21 Then he washed the entrails and the legs in water. And Moshe burned the whole ram on the altar. It was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet aroma, an offering made by fire to Yah, as Yah had commanded Moshe. 22 And he brought the second ram, the ram of consecration. Then Aharon and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram. 23 And Moshe killed it. Also he took some of its blood and put it on the tip of Aharon’s right ear, on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot. 24 Then he brought Aharon’s sons. And Moshe put some of the blood on the tips of their right ears, on the thumbs of their right hands and on the big toes of their right feet. And Moshe sprinkled the blood all around the altar. 25 Then he took the fat and the fat tail, all the fat that was on the entrails, the fatty lobe attached to the liver, the two kidneys and their fat and the right thigh.

26 And from the basket of unleavened bread that was before Yah, he took one unleavened cake, a cake of bread anointed with oil and one wafer and put them on the fat and on the right thigh. 27 And he put all these in Aharon’s hands and in his son’s hands and waved them as a wave offering before Yah. 28 Then Moshe took them from their hands and burned them on the altar, on the burnt offering. They were consecration offerings for a sweet aroma. That was an offering made by fire to Yah. 29 And Moshe took the breast and waved it as a wave offering before Yah. It was Moshe’s part of the ram of consecration, as Yah had commanded Moshe. 30 Then Moshe took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood which was on the altar and sprinkled it on Aharon, on his garments, on his sons and on the garments of his sons with him. And he consecrated Aharon, his garments, his sons and the garments of his sons with him. 31 And Moshe said to Aharon and his sons, ‘boil the flesh at the door of the tabernacle of meeting and eat it there with the bread that is in the basket of consecration offerings, as I commanded saying, Aharon and his sons shall eat it’. 32 What remains of the flesh and of the bread you shall burn with fire. 33 And you shall not go outside the door of the tabernacle of meeting for seven days, until the days of your consecration are ended. For seven days he shall consecrate you. 34 As he has done this day, so Yah has commanded to do, to make atonement for you. 35 Therefore, you shall stay at the door of the tabernacle of meeting day and night for seven days and keep the charge of Yah so that you may not die, for so I have been commanded”. 36 So Aharon and his sons did all the things that Yah had commanded by the hand of Moshe
