Procedures for the Peace Offering
1“If you present an animal from the herd as a peace offering to the lord, it may be a male or a female, but it must have no defects. 2Lay your hand on the animal’s head, and slaughter it at the entrance of the Tabernacle.#  Hebrew Tent of Meeting; also in 3:8, 13. Then Aaron’s sons, the priests, will splatter its blood against all sides of the altar. 3The priest must present part of this peace offering as a special gift to the lord. This includes all the fat around the internal organs, 4the two kidneys and the fat around them near the loins, and the long lobe of the liver. These must be removed with the kidneys, 5and Aaron’s sons will burn them on top of the burnt offering on the wood burning on the altar. It is a special gift, a pleasing aroma to the lord.
6“If you present an animal from the flock as a peace offering to the lord, it may be a male or a female, but it must have no defects. 7If you present a sheep as your offering, bring it to the lord, 8lay your hand on its head, and slaughter it in front of the Tabernacle. Aaron’s sons will then splatter the sheep’s blood against all sides of the altar. 9The priest must present the fat of this peace offering as a special gift to the lord. This includes the fat of the broad tail cut off near the backbone, all the fat around the internal organs, 10the two kidneys and the fat around them near the loins, and the long lobe of the liver. These must be removed with the kidneys, 11and the priest will burn them on the altar. It is a special gift of food presented to the lord.

This includes all the fat around the internal organs, 15the two kidneys and the fat around them near the loins, and the long lobe of the liver.
