Leviticus 19:1-8 - Yahweh Is Holy

1 The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and tell them, 'You shall be holy; for I the LORD your God am holy.

3 "'Each one of you shall respect his mother and his father. You shall keep my Sabbaths. I am the LORD your God. 4 "'Do not turn to idols, nor make molten gods for yourselves. I am the LORD your God. 5 "'When you offer a sacrifice of peace offerings to the LORD, you shall offer it so that you may be accepted. 6 It shall be eaten the same day you offer it, and on the next day: and if anything remains until the third day, it shall be burned with fire. 7 If it is eaten at all on the third day, it is an abomination. It will not be accepted; 8 but everyone who eats it shall bear his iniquity, because he has profaned the holy thing of the LORD, and that soul shall be cut off from his people.
