Lev 7:7 And that which is left of the flesh of the sacrifice till the third day, shall be consumed with fire.
Lev 7:8 And if he do at all eat of the flesh on the third day, it shall not be accepted for him that offers: it shall not be reckoned to him, it is pollution; and whatsoever soul shall eat of it, shall bear his iniquity.

Lev 7:13 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat no fat of oxen or sheep or goats.

Lev 7:15 Every one that eats fat off the beasts, from which he will bring a burnt-offering to the Lord - that soul shall perish from his people.

Lev 7:20 His hands shall bring the burnt-offerings to the Lord; the fat which is on the breast and the lobe of the liver, he shall bring them, so as to set them for a gift before the Lord.
Lev 7:21 And the priest shall offer the fat upon the altar, and the breast shall be Aaron's and his sons,
Lev 7:22 and ye shall give the right shoulder for a choice piece to the priest of your sacrifices of peace-offering.

Lev 7:25 This is the anointing of Aaron, and the anointing of his sons, their portion of the burnt-offerings of the Lord, in the day in which he brought them forward to minister as priests to the Lord;
Lev 7:26 as the Lord commanded to give to them in the day in which he anointed them of the sons of Israel, a perpetual statute through their generations.
Lev 7:27 This is the law of the whole-burnt-offerings, and of sacrifice, and of sin-offering, and of offering for transgression, and of the sacrifice of consecration, and of the sacrifice of peace-offering;
Lev 7:28 as the Lord commanded Moses in the mount Sina, in the day in which he commanded the children of Israel to offer their gifts before the Lord in the wilderness of Sina.
