Leviticus 6:24-7:10

The sin offering

24 The Lord said to Moses, 25 ‘Tell Aaron and his sons this rule. When a person does wrong things he must give an animal to the Lord. The animal will be holy. The person must kill the animal at the north side of the altar. That is where they kill the offerings for sin. 26 The priest who offered it will eat his part of the gift in a holy place. That is the yard outside the Tent of Meeting. 27 If anyone or anything touches the meat they will become holy. If the blood touches the clothes of a person, he must wash them in a holy place. 28 If a person cooks the meat in a clay pot, he must break the pot. He must break it when he has cooked the meat. If a person cooks the meat in a metal pot, he must wash the pot. He must wash it well when he has cooked the meat. And he must wash it again with clean water. 29 The meat is holy. Only the priests' sons can eat it. 30 They must take the blood of a sin offering into the Tent of Meeting. It is a sacrifice to atone for sin. Nobody should eat any of that offering. The priest must burn it.

6:29In these verses, ‘holy’ does not mean ‘very, very good’. It means that it now belongs to the lord.

Leviticus 7

1 These are the rules for a most holy offering. A person may be sorry for the wrong things that he has done. That person must obey these rules. 2 The priest must kill an animal at the north side of the altar. He must throw the blood on to the sides of the altar. 3 The priest will bring all of the fat from the tail and the inside parts to the altar. 4 He will bring the kidneys and the best piece of the liver. 5 Then he will burn the pieces on the altar. They are a gift to the Lord to make a person clean from sin. 6 Aaron's sons can eat the meat that is not burnt. They must eat it in a holy place because it is most holy.

7 The rules are the same for sacrifices for sin and for a person who is sorry for his sins. The gifts of meat are for the priest who brings them to the altar. 8 The skin of the animal is for the priest. 9 People may give gifts of grain that they cooked over a fire or in a closed flat plate. They should give them all to the priest. 10 Grain that is dry is also a gift. And grain that a man mixes with oil is also a gift. They should give them to Aaron's sons.
