The priests in their uncleanness must abstain from the holy things.
Leviticus 22:1 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, Leviticus 22:2 'Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and they are separated from the holy things of the sons of Israel, and they pollute not My holy name in what they are hallowing to Me; I [am] Jehovah. Leviticus 22:3 'Say unto them, To your generations, any man who draweth near, out of all your seed, unto the holy things which the sons of Israel do sanctify to Jehovah, and his uncleanness on himeven that person hath been cut off from before Me; I [am] Jehovah. Leviticus 22:4 'Any man of the seed of Aaron, and is leprous or hath an issueof the holy things he doth not eat till that he is clean; and he who is coming against any uncleanness of a person, or a man whose seed of copulation goeth out from him, Leviticus 22:5 or a man who cometh against any teeming thing which is unclean to him, or against a man who is unclean to him, even any of his uncleanness
How they shall be cleansed.
Leviticus 22:6 the person who cometh against ithath even been unclean till the evening, and doth not eat of the holy things, but hath bathed his flesh with water, Leviticus 22:7 and the sun hath gone in, and he hath been clean, and afterwards he doth eat of the holy things, for it [is] his food; Leviticus 22:8 a carcase or torn thing he doth not eat, for uncleanness thereby; I [am] Jehovah. Leviticus 22:9 'And they have kept My charge, and bear no sin for it, that they have died for it when they pollute it; I [am] Jehovah sanctifying them.
Who of the priest's house may eat of the holy things.
Leviticus 22:10 'And no stranger doth eat of the holy thing; a settler of a priest and an hireling doth not eat of the holy thing; Leviticus 22:11 and when a priest buyeth a person, the purchase of his money, he doth eat of it, also one born in his house; they do eat of his bread. Leviticus 22:12 'And a priest's daughter, when she is a strange man's,she, of the heave-offering of the holy things doth not eat; Leviticus 22:13 and a priest's daughter, when she is a widow, or cast out, and hath no seed, and hath turned back unto the house of her father, as [in] her youth, of her father's bread she doth eat; but no stranger doth eat of it.
Leviticus 22:14 'And when a man doth eat of a holy thing through ignorance, then he hath added its fifth part to it, and hath given [it] to the priest, with the holy thing; Leviticus 22:15 and they do not pollute the holy things of the sons of Israelthat which they lift up to Jehovah, Leviticus 22:16 nor have caused them to bear the iniquity of the guilt-offering in their eating their holy things; for I [am] Jehovah, sanctifying them.'
The sacrifices must be without blemish.
Leviticus 22:17 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, Leviticus 22:18 'Speak unto Aaron, and unto his sons, and unto all the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, Any man of the house of Israel, or of the sojourners in Israel, who bringeth near his offering, of all his vows, or of all his willing offerings which they bring near to Jehovah for a burnt-offering; Leviticus 22:19 at your pleasure a perfect one, a male of the herd, of the sheep or of the goats; Leviticus 22:20 nothing in which [is] blemish do ye bring near, for it is not for a pleasing thing for you. Leviticus 22:21 'And when a man bringeth near a sacrifice of peace-offerings to Jehovah, to complete a vow, or for a willing-offering, of the herd or of the flock, it is perfect for a pleasing thing: no blemish is in it; Leviticus 22:22 blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy, or scabbedye do not bring these near to Jehovah, and a fire-offering ye do not make of them on the altar to Jehovah. Leviticus 22:23 'As to an ox or a sheep enlarged or dwarfeda willing-offering ye do make it, but for a vow it is not pleasing. Leviticus 22:24 As to a bruised, or beaten, or enlarged, or cut thingye do not bring [it] near to Jehovah; even in your land ye do not do it. Leviticus 22:25 And from the hand of a son of a stranger ye do not bring near the bread of your God, of any of these, for their corruption [is] in them; blemish [is] in them; they are not pleasing for you.'
The age of the sacrifice.
Leviticus 22:26 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, Leviticus 22:27 'When ox or lamb or goat is born, and it hath been seven days under its dam, then from the eighth day and henceforth, it is pleasing for an offering, a fire-offering to Jehovah; Leviticus 22:28 but an ox or sheepit and its young one, ye do not slaughter in one day.
The law of eating the sacrifice of thanksgiving.
Leviticus 22:29 'And when ye sacrifice a sacrifice of thanksgiving to Jehovah, at your pleasure ye do sacrifice, Leviticus 22:30 on that day it is eaten, ye do not leave of it till morning; I [am] Jehovah; Leviticus 22:31 and ye have kept my commands, and have done them; I [am] Jehovah; Leviticus 22:32 and ye do not pollute My holy name, and I have been hallowed in the midst of the sons of Israel; I [am] Jehovah, sanctifying you, Leviticus 22:33 who am bringing you up out of the land of Egypt, to become your God; I [am] Jehovah.'
