Leviticus - Chapter 22
1 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
3 Say to them: "Any one of your descendants, for all time, who in a state of uncleanness approaches the holy offerings consecrated to Yahweh by the Israelites, will be outlawed from my presence. I am Yahweh.
4 "Anyone of Aaron's line who is afflicted with a contagious skin-disease or a discharge will not eat holy things until he is clean. Anyone who touches anything made unclean by a dead body, or who has a seminal discharge,
6 in short, anyone who has had any such contact will be unclean until evening, and must not eat holy things until he has washed his body.
7 At sunset he will be clean and may then eat holy things, for these are his food.
8 "He must not eat an animal that has died a natural death or been savaged; he would contract uncleanness from it. I am Yahweh.
9 "They must keep my rules and not burden themselves with sin. If they profane them, they will incur death; I, Yahweh, have sanctified them.
12 "If a priest's daughter marries a layman, she will have no share in the holy things set aside,
13 but if she is widowed or divorced and, being childless, has had to return to her father's house as when she was young, she may share her father's food. No lay person may share it;
16 By eating these, they would burden them with guilt requiring a sacrifice of reparation; for I, Yahweh, have sanctified these offerings." '
17 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
18 'Speak to Aaron, to his sons, and to all the Israelites and say: "Any member of the House of Israel or any alien resident in Israel who brings an offering either in payment of a vow or as a voluntary gift, and offers it as a burnt offering to Yahweh,
20 You will not offer anything with a blemish, for it would not make you acceptable.
21 "If anyone offers Yahweh a communion sacrifice, either to fulfil a vow or as a voluntary offering, the animal, be it from the herd or flock, must be perfect, if he is to be acceptable; it must be unblemished.
26 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
28 But no animal, whether cow or ewe, will be slaughtered on the same day as its young.
30 it must be eaten the same day; you will leave nothing over till next morning. I am Yahweh.
31 'You will keep my commands and put them into practice. I am Yahweh.
32 You will not profane my holy name -- so that I may be honoured as holy among the Israelites, I, Yahweh, who make you holy,

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
