The Priest’s Part in the Offerings

‘Now this is the law of the (A)guilt offering; it is most holy. In (B)the place where they slaughter the burnt offering they are to slaughter the guilt offering, and the priest shall sprinkle its blood around on the altar. Then he shall offer from it all its fat: the (C)fat tail and the fat that covers the entrails, and the two kidneys with the fat that is on them, which is on the loins; and he shall remove the lobe on the liver (D)with the kidneys. The priest shall offer them up in smoke on the altar as an offering by fire to the Lord; it is a guilt offering. (E)Every male among the priests may eat it. It shall be eaten in a holy place; it is most holy. The guilt offering is like the (F)sin offering: there is one law for them. The (G)priest who makes atonement with it [a]shall have it. Also the priest who presents anyone’s burnt offering, [b]that priest shall have for himself the hide of the burnt offering which he has presented. Likewise, every grain offering that is baked in the oven and everything prepared in a [c]pan or on a (H)griddle [d]shall belong to the priest who presents it. 10 Every grain offering, mixed with oil or dry, shall [e]belong to all the sons of Aaron, [f]to all alike.
