Leviticus 22

22:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
22:2 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, that they separate
 themselves from the holy things of the children of Israel, and
 that they profane not my holy name [in those things] which they
 hallow to me: I [am] the LORD.
22:3 Say to them, Whoever [he may be] of all your seed among
 your generations, that approacheth the holy things, which the
 children of Israel hallow to the LORD, having his uncleanness
 upon him, that soul shall be cut off from my presence: I [am]
 the LORD.
22:4 Whatever man of the seed of Aaron [is] a leper, or hath a
 running issue; he shall not eat of the holy things, until he is
 clean. And whoever toucheth any thing [that is] unclean [by]
 the dead, or a man whose seed goeth from him;
22:5 Or whoever toucheth any creeping animal, by which he may be
 made unclean, or a man of whom he may take uncleanness,
 whatever uncleanness he hath:
22:6 The soul which hath touched any such shall be unclean until
 evening, and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he shall
 wash his flesh with water.
22:7 And when the sun is set, he shall be clean, and shall
 afterward eat of the holy things, because it [is] his food.
22:8 That which dieth of itself, or is torn [by beasts], he
 shall not eat to defile himself with it: I [am] the LORD.
22:9 They shall therefore keep my ordinance, lest they bear sin
 for it, and die therefore, if they profane it: I the LORD do
 sanctify them.
22:10 There shall no stranger eat [of] the holy thing: a
 sojourner of the priest, or a hired servant, shall not eat [of]
 the holy thing.
22:11 But if the priest shall buy [any] soul with his money, he
 shall eat of it, and he that is born in his house: they shall
 eat of his meat.
22:12 If the priest's daughter also shall be [married] to a
 stranger, she may not eat of an offering of the holy things.
22:13 But if the priest's daughter shall be a widow, or
 divorced, and shall have no child, and have returned to her
 father's house, as in her youth, she shall eat of her father's
 meat; but there shall no stranger eat of it.
22:14 And if a man shall eat [of] the holy thing unknowingly,
 then he shall put to it the fifth [part], and shall give [it]
 to the priest, with the holy thing.
22:15 And they shall not profane the holy things of the children
 of Israel which they offer to the LORD;
22:16 Or suffer them to bear the iniquity of trespass, when they
 eat their holy things: for I the LORD do sanctify them.
22:17 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
22:18 Speak to Aaron, and to his sons, and to all the children
 of Israel, and say to them, Whoever [he may be] of the house of
 Israel, or of the strangers in Israel, that will offer his
 oblation for all his vows, and for all his free-will-offerings,
 which they will offer to the LORD for a burnt-offering:
22:19 [Ye shall offer] at your own will a male without blemish
 of the beeves, of the sheep, or of the goats.
22:20 [But] whatever hath a blemish, [that] shall ye not offer:
 for it shall not be acceptable for you.
22:21 And whoever offereth a sacrifice of peace-offerings to the
 LORD to accomplish [his] vow, or a free-will-offering in
 beeves, or sheep, it shall be perfect to be accepted: there
 shall be in it no blemish.
22:22 Blind, or broken, or maimed, or having a wen, or scurvy,
 or scabbed, ye shall not offer these to the LORD, nor make an
 offering by fire of them upon the altar to the LORD.
22:23 Either a bullock, or a lamb that hath any thing
 superfluous or lacking in his parts, that mayest thou offer
 [for] a free-will-offering; but for a vow it shall not be
22:24 Ye shall not offer to the LORD that which is bruised, or
 crushed, or broken, or cut; neither shall ye make [any offering
 thereof] in your land.
22:25 Neither from a stranger's hand shall ye offer the bread of
 your God of any of these; because their corruption [is] in
 them, [and] blemishes [are] in them: they shall not be accepted
 for you.
22:26 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
22:27 When a bullock, or a sheep, or a goat is brought forth,
 then it shall be seven days under the dam; and from the eighth
 day and thenceforth it shall be accepted for an offering made
 by fire to the LORD.
22:28 And [whether it is] cow, or ewe, ye shall not kill it and
 her young both in one day.
22:29 And when ye will offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the
 LORD, offer it at your own will.
22:30 On the same day it shall be eaten up, ye shall leave none
 of it until the morrow: I [am] the LORD.
22:31 Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I
 [am] the LORD.
22:32 Neither shall ye profane my holy name; but I will be
 hallowed among the children of Israel: I [am] the LORD who
 hallow you,
22:33 That brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God:
 I [am] the LORD.
