1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
3 “Say to them, ‘aIf any man among all your 1descendants throughout your generations approaches the holy gifts which the sons of Israel dedicate to the Lord, while he has an uncleanness, that person shall be cut off from before Me; I am the Lord.
4 ‘aNo man of the 1descendants of Aaron, who is a leper or who has a discharge, may eat of the holy gifts until he is clean. bAnd if one touches anything made unclean by a corpse or if ca man has a seminal emission,
5 or aif a man touches any teeming things by which he is made unclean, or any man by whom he is made unclean, whatever his uncleanness;
8 ‘He shall not eat aan animal which dies or is torn by beasts, becoming unclean by it; I am the Lord.
14 ‘aBut if a man eats a holy gift unintentionally, then he shall add to it a fifth of it and shall give the holy gift to the priest.
15 ‘aThey shall not profane the holy gifts of the sons of Israel which they offer to the Lord,
17 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
18 “Speak to Aaron and to his sons and to all the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘aAny man of the house of Israel or of the aliens in Israel who presents his offering, whether it is any of their 1votive or any of their freewill offerings, which they present to the Lord for a burnt offering—
19 afor you to be accepted—it must be a male without defect from the cattle, the sheep, or the goats.
20 ‘aWhatever has a defect, you shall not offer, for it will not be accepted for you.
21 ‘When a man offers a sacrifice of peace offerings to the Lord ato 1fulfill a special vow or for a freewill offering, of the herd or of the flock, it must be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no defect in it.
23 ‘In respect to an ox or a lamb which has an 1overgrown or stunted member, you may present it for a freewill offering, but for a vow it will not be accepted.
28 “aBut, whether it is an ox or a sheep, you shall not kill both it and its young in one day.
29 “When you sacrifice aa sacrifice of thanksgiving to the Lord, you shall sacrifice it so that you may be accepted.
31 “aSo you shall keep My commandments, and do them; I am the Lord.
33 awho brought you out from the land of Egypt, to be your God; I am the Lord.”
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
