The priests in their uncleanness must abstain from the holy things.
Leviticus 22:1 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: Leviticus 22:2 Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, That they hold sacredly aloof from the holy things of the sons of Israel, so as not to profane my holy name,in the things which, they, are hallowing unto meI, am Yahweh. Leviticus 22:3 Say unto themUnto your generations, as touching any man who cometh near from among any of your seed, unto the hallowed things which the sons of Israel may hallow unto Yahweh, while his uncleanness is upon him, then shall that person be cut off from before meI, am Yahweh. Leviticus 22:4 No man soever of the seed of Aaron, who is a leper, or hath a flux, shall eat, of the holy things, until he be clean,And, as for him who toucheth anything that is unclean by the dead, or a man whose seed goeth from him; Leviticus 22:5 or a man who toucheth any creeping thing, which is unclean to him,or [toucheth] any human being who hath uncleanness, to the extent of any thing that maketh him unclean,
How they shall be cleansed.
Leviticus 22:6 any person who toucheth any such, shall then be unclean until the evening,and shall not eat of the hallowed things, unless he bathe his flesh in water. Leviticus 22:7 When the sun tooth in, then is he clean,and, thereafter, he may eat of the hallowed things, for, his food, it is. Leviticus 22:8 That which dieth of itself, or is torn in pieces, shall he not eat, to make himself unclean thereby,I, am Yahweh. Leviticus 22:9 Therefore shall they keep my charge, and shall not bear, for it, sin, and die therein, when they profane it,IYahweh, am hallowing them.
Who of the priest's house may eat of the holy things.
Leviticus 22:10 And, no stranger, shall eat what is hallowed,neither, one who dwelleth with a priest, nor a hireling, shall eat what is hallowed. Leviticus 22:11 But, when, a priest, buyeth any person, as the purchase of his silver, he may eat thereof,and, the children of his household, they, may eat of his food. Leviticus 22:12 And, when, a priest's daughter, belongeth to a husband who is a stranger, she, of the heave-offering of the hallowed things, may not eat. Leviticus 22:13 But, when, a priest's daughter cometh to be a widow or divorced, and hath, no seed, and so she returneth unto the house of her father, as in her youth, of the food of her father, she may eat,but, no stranger, shall eat thereof.
Leviticus 22:14 And, when, any man, eateth what is hallowed, by mistake, then shall he add the fifth part of it thereunto, and give, unto the priest, the hallowed thing: Leviticus 22:15 So shall they not profane the hallowed things of the sons of Israel,which they heave up unto Yahweh; Leviticus 22:16 nor cause them to bear guilty iniquity, when they eat their hallowed things,For, IYahweh, am hallowing them.
The sacrifices must be without blemish.
Leviticus 22:17 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: Leviticus 22:18 Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the sons of Israel, and thou shalt say unto themWhat man, soever, of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners in Israel, may bring near his oblation, as regardeth any of their vows, or any of their freewill offerings which they may bring near unto Yahweh, as an ascending-sacrifice, Leviticus 22:19 that ye may be accepted, [it must be] a male without defect, of the beeves, or of the sheep, or of the goats: Leviticus 22:20 whatsoever hath in it a blemish, shall ye not bring near,for it shall not be accepted for you. Leviticus 22:21 And, whosoever would bring near a peace-offering unto Yahweh, to consecrate a vow, or as a freewill-offering, with a bullock or a sheep, without defect, shall it be, to be accepted, no, blemish, shall be therein. Leviticus 22:22 Blind, or broken, or rent, or having a running sore, or scurvy, or scab, ye shall not bring these near unto Yahweh,and no, altar-flame, shall ye present therefrom upon the altar, unto Yahweh. Leviticus 22:23 Whether an ox or a lamb, long or short limb, as a free-will offering, thou mayest offer it, but, for a vow, it shall not be accepted. Leviticus 22:24 But, that which is bruised in the stones, or broken therein, or torn or cut, shall ye neither bring ear unto Yahweh, nor, on your own land, shall ye offer. Leviticus 22:25 Even at the hand of the son of a stranger, shall ye not bring near the food of your God, of any of these,for, their damage, is in them, a blemish, is in them, they shall not be accepted for you.
The age of the sacrifice.
Leviticus 22:26 And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying: Leviticus 22:27 When, a beeve or a sheep or a goat, is brought forth, then shall it be seven days under its dam,and, from the eighth day and onwards, it shall be accepted as an oblation of an altar-flame, unto Yahweh, Leviticus 22:28 Whether cow or eweit and its young, shall ye not slaughter on one day.
The law of eating the sacrifice of thanksgiving.
Leviticus 22:29 And, when ye would offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving unto Yahweh, for your acceptance, shall ye offer it. Leviticus 22:30 On the same day, shall it be eaten, ye shall not leave thereof until morning,I, am Yahweh. Leviticus 22:31 So then ye shall observe my commandments, and do them,I, am Yahweh. Leviticus 22:32 So shall ye not profane my holy name, So shall I be hallowed in the midst of the sons of Israel,I, am Yahweh, who am hallowing you; Leviticus 22:33 Who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that I might become your, God,I, am Yahweh.
