8 The hide of the victim presented by someone to the priest to be offered as a burnt offering will revert to the priest.
9 Every cereal offering baked in the oven, every cereal offering cooked in the pan or on the griddle will revert to the priest who offers it.
10 Every cereal offering, mixed with oil or dry, will revert to all the descendants of Aaron without distinction.
11 "This is the ritual for the communion sacrifice to be offered to Yahweh:
12 "If this is offered as a sacrifice with praise, to the latter must be added an offering of unleavened cakes mixed with oil, unleavened wafers spread with oil, and wheaten flour in the form of cakes mixed with oil.
13 This offering, then, must be added to the cakes of leavened bread and to the communion sacrifice with praise.
14 One of the cakes of this offering must be presented as an offering to Yahweh; it will revert to the priest who pours out the blood of the communion sacrifice.
15 The meat of the victim will be eaten on the day the offering is made; nothing may be left until next morning.
16 "If the victim is offered as a votive or a voluntary sacrifice, it must be eaten on the day it is offered, and the remainder may be eaten on the following day;
17 but on the third day whatever is left of the meat of the victim must be burnt.
18 "If any of the meat of a victim offered as a communion sacrifice is eaten on the third day, the person who has offered it will not be acceptable and will receive no credit for it. It will count as rotten meat, and the person who eats it will bear the consequences of the guilt.
19 "Meat that has touched anything unclean cannot be eaten; it must be burnt. "Anyone clean may eat the meat,
20 but anyone unclean who eats the meat of a communion sacrifice offered to Yahwehwill be outlawed from his people.
21 Furthermore, if anyone touches anything unclean, human or animal, or any foul thing, and then eats the meat of a communion sacrifice offered to Yahweh, that individual will be outlawed from his people." '
30 He must bring the food to be burnt for Yahweh, that is to say, the fat adhering to the forequarters, with his own hands. He will bring it, and also the forequarters, with which he will make the gesture of offering before Yahweh.
31 The priestwill then burn the fat on the altar, and the forequarters will revert to Aaron and his descendants.
32 You will set aside the right thigh from your communion sacrifice and give it to the priest.
33 The right thigh will be the portion of the descendant of Aaron who offers the blood and fat of the communion sacrifice.
34 For I have deprived the Israelites of the forequarter offered and the thigh presented in their communion sacrifices, and given them to the priestAaron and his descendants; this is a perpetual law for the Israelites." '
35 Such was the portion of Aaron and his descendants in the food burnt for Yahweh, the day he presented them to Yahweh for them to become his priests.
36 This was what Yahweh ordered the Israelites to give them on the day they were anointed: a perpetual law for all their descendants.
