Leviticus 7:8-10 - Portions For The Priests
8 And, as for the priest who bringeth near the ascending-sacrifice of any man, the skin of the ascending-sacrifices which he hath brought near, to the priest himself, shall it belong. 9 And as for any meal-offering that may be baked in an oven, or anything that hath been prepared in a boiler or on a girdle, to the priest that bringeth it near - to him, shall it belong, 10 And, as for any meal-offering overflowed with oil or dry, - to all the sons of Aaron, shall it belong, to one as much as to another.
8 And Yahweh spake unto Aaron, I, therefore, lo! I have given unto thee the charge of my heave-offerings, - as to all the hallowed things of the sons of Israel - unto thee, have I given them. as pertaining to the anointing, and unto thy sons. for a statute age-abiding, 9 This, shall be thine, out of the things most holy, out of the fire, - their every oblation - to the extent of their every meal-offering, and their every sin-bearer, and their every guilt-bearer wherewith they make amends unto me, most holy unto thee, shall it be and unto thy sons. 10 As something most holy, shall ye eat it, - every male, shall eat it, holy, shall it be unto thee.
11 This, therefore, shall be thine - the heave-offering of their gift even all the wave-offerings of the sons of Israel, unto thee, have I given them and unto thy sons and unto thy daughters with thee by a statute age-abiding, - every one that is clean in thy house, shall eat it. 12 All the best of oil, and all the best of new-wine and corn, - the firstfruits thereof which they shall give unto Yahweh, unto thee, have I given them. 13 The firstfruits of all that is in their land which they shall bring in unto Yahweh, thine, shall it be, - every one that is clean in thy house, shall eat it:
14 every devoted thing in Israel, thine, shall it be: 15 every thing that is born first of all flesh that may be offered unto Yahweh among men and among beasts, shall be thine, - only thou shalt, redeem, the firstborn of men, and the firstborn of unclean beasts, shalt thou redeem. 16 And, as to the redemption price thereof, from a month old, shalt thou redeem, by thine estimate five shekels of silver by the shekel of the sanctuary, - twenty gerahs, it is.
17 Only a firstling ox or a firstling sheep or a firstling goat, shalt thou not redeem, hallowed, they are, - their blood, shalt thou dash against the altar and of their fat, shalt thou make a perfume, an altar-flame, for a satisfying odour unto Yahweh: 18 and their flesh, shall be thine, - as the wave-breast and as the right leg, thine, shall it be:
19 all the heave-offerings of the holy things which the sons of Israel shall heave up unto Yahweh, have I given unto thee and unto thy sons and unto thy daughters with thee by a statute age-abiding, - an age-abiding covenant of salt, it is before Yahweh, for thee and for thy seed with thee.
20 Then said Yahweh unto Aaron: In their land, thou shalt have no inheritance, and no allotted portion, shalt thou have in their midst, - I, am thine allotted portion and thine inheritance in the midst of the sons of Israel.
21 And unto the sons of Levi, lo! I have given all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, - the allotted portion for their laborious work which, they are performing, the laborious work of the tent of meeting: 22 that the sons of Israel come near no more, unto the tent of meeting, - to bear sin, to die. 23 So shall the Levites themselves perform the laborious work of the tent of meeting, and, they, shall bear their iniquity, a statute age-abiding, unto your generations, and in the midst of the sons of Israel, shall they take no inheritance. 24 Because the tenth of the sons of Israel which they shall offer up unto Yahweh as a heave-offering, have I given unto the Levites as an inheritance, - for this cause, said I regarding them, In the midst of the sons of Israel, shall they take no inheritance. 26 Unto the Levites, therefore shalt thou speak and shalt say unto them, When ye shall take of the sons of Israel the tenth which I have given unto you from them as your inheritance, then shall ye offer up therefrom the heave-offering of Yahweh, a tenth of the tenth. 27 shall your heave-offering be reckoned your own, - as corn out of the threshing-floor, and as the abundance out of the wine-press. 28 Thus, shall ye also, offer up the heave-offering of Yahweh, out of all your tenths which ye shall take from the sons of Israel, - and give therefrom the heave-offering of Yahweh, unto Aaron the priest. 29 Out of all your gifts, shall ye offer up every b heave-offering of Yahweh, - out of all the best thereof, the hallowed pert thereof out of it.
30 And thou shalt say unto them, - When ye offer the best thereof out of it, then shall it be reckoned to belong unto the Levites, as the increase of the threshing-floor and as the increase of the wine-press, 31 And ye shall eat it in any place, ye, and your household, - for a reward, it is unto you, the allotted portion for your laborious work in the tent of meeting. 32 And ye shall not by reason of it bear sin, when ye offer up the best thereof, out of it; and the hallowed things of the sons of Israel, shall ye not profane neither shall ye die.
