8 And the Lord spoke to Aaron: “Here, pI Myself have also given you 4charge of My heave offerings, all the holy gifts of the children of Israel; I have given them qas a portion to you and your sons, as an ordinance forever. 9 This shall be yours of the most holy things reserved from the fire: every offering of theirs, every rgrain offering and every ssin offering and every ttrespass offering which they render to Me, shall be most holy for you and your sons. 10 uIn a most holy place you shall eat it; every male shall eat it. It shall be holy to you.
11 “This also is yours: vthe heave offering of their gift, with all the wave offerings of the children of Israel; I have given them to you, and your sons and daughters with you, as an ordinance forever. wEveryone who is 5clean in your house may eat it.
12 x“All the 6best of the oil, all the best of the new wine and the grain, ytheir firstfruits which they offer to the Lord, I have given them to you. 13 Whatever first ripe fruit is in their land, zwhich they bring to the Lord, shall be yours. Everyone who is clean in your house may eat it.
15 “Everything that first opens bthe womb of all flesh, which they bring to the Lord, whether man or beast, shall be yours; nevertheless cthe firstborn of man you shall surely redeem, and the firstborn of unclean animals you shall redeem. 16 And those redeemed of the devoted things you shall redeem when one month old, daccording to your valuation, for five shekels of silver, according to the shekel of the sanctuary, which is etwenty gerahs. 17 fBut the firstborn of a cow, the firstborn of a sheep, or the firstborn of a goat you shall not redeem; they are holy. gYou shall sprinkle their blood on the altar, and burn their fat as an offering made by fire for a sweet aroma to the Lord. 18 And their flesh shall be yours, just as the hwave 8breast and the right thigh are yours.
19 “All the heave offerings of the holy things, which the children of Israel offer to the Lord, I have given to you and your sons and daughters with you as an ordinance forever; iit is a covenant of salt forever before the Lord with you and your descendants with you.”
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
