Leviticus 3

1“When a person gives a sacrifice as a fellowship offering, the animal can be a cow and the animal can be a male or a female. But the animal must have nothing wrong with it. 2The person must put his hand on the animal’s head and kill the animal at the entrance of the Meeting Tent. Then Aaron’s sons, the priests, must sprinkle the blood on the altar, all around it. 3The fellowship offering is an offering made by fire to the Lord. The priest must offer the fat that is in and around the animal’s inside parts. 4The person must offer the two kidneys and the fat covering them near the lower back muscle. He must also offer the fat part of the liver. He must remove it with the kidneys. 5Then Aaron’s sons will burn the fat on the altar. They will put it on the burnt offering that is on the wood on the fire. It is an offering by fire. Its smell pleases the Lord. 6“When a person gives a sheep or a goat as a fellowship offering to the Lord, the animal can be a male or a female animal. But it must have nothing wrong with it. 7If he brings a lamb as his offering, then he must bring it before the Lord. 8He must put his hand on the animal’s head and kill the animal in front of the Meeting Tent. Then Aaron’s sons must sprinkle the animal’s blood on the altar, all around it. 9The person must give part of the fellowship offering as an offering made by fire to the Lord. The person must offer the fat, the whole fat tail, and the fat that is on and around the animal’s inside parts. (He must cut off the tail close to the backbone.) 10The person must offer the two kidneys and the fat covering them near the lower back muscles. He must also offer the fat part of the liver. He must remove it with the kidneys. 11Then the priest must burn them on the altar. The fellowship offering is an offering made by fire to the Lord. But it will also be food ˻for the people˼. 12“If the offering is a goat, then the person must bring it before the Lord. 13The person must put his hand on the goat’s head and kill it in front of the Meeting Tent. Then Aaron’s son must sprinkle the goat’s blood on the altar, all around it. 14The person must give part of the fellowship offering as an offering made by fire to the Lord. The person must offer the fat that is on and around the animal’s inside parts. 15The person must offer the two kidneys and the fat covering them near the lower back muscle. He must also offer the fat part of the liver. He must remove it with the kidneys. 16Then the priest must burn them on the altar. The fellowship offering is an offering made by fire. Its smell pleases the Lord. It is also food ˻for the people˼—but the best parts belong to the Lord. 17This rule will continue forever through all your generations. Wherever you live, you must never eat fat or blood.”
