I have given it as their share from my offerings made by fire. It is a most holy thing,#Literally “a holiness of holinesses” like the sin offering and like the guilt offering. 18Every male among Aaron’s sons may eat it as a lasting rule among your generations from the offerings made by fire belonging to#Literally “of” Yahweh.
