1. This is the regulation for the sacrifice of repayment:

2. It is a most holy offering. The animal for this offering is to be killed in the place where the animals for the burnt offerings are killed, and the priest must pour out the blood on the sides of the altar.

3. Then he is to offer all the fat: the tail, the fat that covers the internal organs,

4. the two kidneys, the fat that is on them and on the loins, and the best part which he will remove from the liver and kidneys.

5. The priest must burn these pieces on the altar as a burnt offering for Yahweh. This is a sacrifice of repayment.

6. Any male who is a priest may eat it, but it must be eaten in a holy place because it is a most holy thing.

7. As with the sacrifice for sin, so with the sacrifice of repayment; the regulation is the same for both. The offering which he has used in the sacrifice for sin belongs to the priest.

8. The skin of the animal presented by a man to the priest to be offered as a burnt offering belongs to the priest.

9. Every grain offering baked in the oven, every grain offering fried in the pan or on the griddle shall belong to the priest who offered it.

10. Every grain offering, mixed with oil or dry, is to belong to all the sons of Aaron equally.

11. This is the regulation for the peace offering presented to Yahweh:

12. If it is offered as a thanksgiving offering, there must be added to it an offering of unleavened cakes mixed with oil, unleavened wafers spread with oil, and fine flour in the form of cakes mixed with oil.

13. This offering, then, must be added to the loaves of leavened bread and to the thanksgiving offering.

14. One of the cakes of this offering is to be presented as an offering to Yahweh; it shall belong to the priest who pours out the blood of the peace offering.

15. The flesh of the animal must be eaten on the day when the offering is made; nothing must remain until the next morning.

16. If the animal is presented before Yahweh as a sacrifice freely offered, it is to be eaten on the day it is offered and also on the following day;

17. but on the third day whatever remains of the animal's flesh must be thrown on the fire.

18. If the meat offered as a peace offering is eaten on the third day, the man who has offered it shall not be accepted nor receive credit for it, for it is defiled meat, and the man who eats it should suffer the penalty of his fault.

19. If this meat has touched anything unclean, it cannot be eaten; and must be thrown on the fire.

20. Anyone who is clean may eat meat of the peace offering, but whoever eats the meat of a peace offering presented to Yahweh even though he is unclean shall be cut off from his people.

21. If anyone touches anything unclean, whether human or animal, or any crawling creature, and then eats the meat of a peace offering presented to Yahweh, this man shall be cut off from his people.

22. Yahweh spoke to Moses; he said,

23. "Speak to the people of Israel and say to them: You must not eat the fat of ox, sheep or goat.

24. The fat of an animal that has died a natural death or been killed by a wild animal may be used for any other purpose, but you must not eat it.

25. Anyone who eats the fat of an animal offered as a burnt offering to Yahweh shall be cut off from his people.

26. Wherever you live, you must not eat blood, whether it be of bird or animal.

27. Anyone who eats blood, whoever he may be, shall be cut off from his people."

28. Yahweh spoke to Moses; he said,

29. "Speak to the people of Israel and say to them: Anyone who offers a peace offering to Yahweh is to bring himself the part of his sacrifice that is offered to Yahweh.

30. He is to bring Yahweh's burnt offering, that is, the fat that is near the breast and also the breast, with his own hands. Then he will make the gesture of offering before Yahweh.

31. The priest shall burn the fat on the altar, and the breast shall belong to Aaron and his sons.

32. You must set aside and give to the priest the right hind leg from your peace offering.

33. The right hind leg shall be the share of the son of Aaron who offers the blood and fat of the peace offering.

34. Thus, I keep back this breast and hind leg out of every peace offering presented by the sons of Israel, and give these to Aaron the priest and to his sons: this is a law for the sons of Israel forever."

35. This is the share of Aaron and his sons in Yahweh's burnt offerings since the day he called them to be his priests.

36. This is what Yahweh commands the sons of Israel to give them from the day they are ordained as priests: this is a law for all their descendants for all time to come.

37. Such is the regulation for burnt offerings, grain offerings, sacrifices for sin, sacrifices of repayment, ordination and peace offerings.

38. This is what Yahweh commanded Moses on Mount Sinai when he told the people of Israel to make their offerings to Yahweh in the wilderness of Sinai.
