1‘When his offering is a #Lev. 7:11, 29sacrifice of a peace offering, if he offers it of the herd, whether male or female, he shall offer it #Lev. 1:3; 22:20–24without blemish before the Lord. 2And #Ex. 29:10, 11, 16, 20; Lev. 1:4, 5; 16:21he shall lay his hand on the head of his offering, and kill it at the door of the tabernacle of meeting; and Aaron’s sons, the priests, shall #Lev. 1:5sprinkle the blood all around on the altar. 3Then he shall offer from the sacrifice of the peace offering an offering made by fire to the Lord. #Ex. 29:13, 22; Lev. 1:8; 3:16; 4:8, 9The fat that covers the entrails and all the fat that is on the entrails, 4the two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the flanks, and the fatty lobe attached to the liver above the kidneys, he shall remove; 5and Aaron’s sons #Ex. 29:13; Lev. 6:12; 7:28–34shall burn it on the altar upon the #2 Chr. 35:14burnt sacrifice, which is on the wood that is on the fire, as an #Num. 28:3–10offering made by fire, a #Num. 15:8–10sweet aroma to the Lord.
6‘If his offering as a sacrifice of a peace offering to the Lord is of the flock, whether male or female, #Lev. 3:1; 22:20–24he shall offer it without blemish. 7If he offers a #Num. 15:4, 5lamb as his offering, then he shall #1 Kin. 8:62offer it #Lev. 17:8, 9before the Lord. 8And he shall lay his hand on the head of his offering, and kill it before the tabernacle of meeting; and Aaron’s sons shall sprinkle its blood all around on the altar.
9‘Then he shall offer from the sacrifice of the peace offering, as an offering made by fire to the Lord, its fat and the whole fat tail which he shall remove close to the backbone. And the fat that covers the entrails and all the fat that is on the entrails, 10the two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the flanks, and the fatty lobe attached to the liver above the kidneys, he shall remove; 11and the priest shall burn them on the altar as #Lev. 21:6, 8, 17, 21, 22; 22:25; Num. 28:2; (Ezek. 44:7; Mal. 1:7, 12)food, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
12‘And if his #Num. 15:6–11offering is a goat, then he shall offer it before the Lord. 13He shall lay his hand on its head and kill it before the tabernacle of meeting; and the sons of Aaron shall sprinkle its blood all around on the altar. 14Then #Lev. 3:1, 7he shall offer from it his offering, as an offering made by fire to the Lord. The fat that covers the entrails and all the fat that is on the entrails, 15the two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the flanks, and the fatty lobe attached to the liver above the kidneys, he shall remove; 16and the priest shall burn them on the altar as food, an offering made by fire for a sweet aroma; #Lev. 7:23–25; 1 Sam. 2:15; 2 Chr. 7:7all the fat is the Lord’s.
17‘This shall be a #Lev. 6:18; 7:36; 17:7; 23:14perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwellings: you shall eat neither fat nor #Gen. 9:4; Lev. 7:23, 26; 17:10, 14; 1 Sam. 14:33blood.’ ”
