Leviticus - Chapter 22

Bible Study Notes

Leviticus 22:1-9 The Lord instructed the Priests to stay away from the holy things offered by the people of Israel to the Lord, especially if they are unclean while doing it for then they shall be cut off. No Priests shall eat of the holy things if they have a leprous disease or discharge. If the Priests touch anything unclean, they are unclean until evening and eat no holy thing unless they first bathe in water. The Priests shall also not eat anything that dies of itself or is torn by beasts. Death may be the penalty if they profane it.

Leviticus 22:10-16 A non-Priest shall not eat the holy things offered to the Lord, except a slave purchased by a Priest. A Priest’s daughter married to a non-Priest shall not eat the holy things. She may return eating the holy things if she is widowed or divorced with no children. Any person who accidentally eats the holy things must add the firth of its value to it and give the holy thing to the Priest.

Leviticus 22:17-25 Burnt offerings must be a male bull, sheep, or goat without blemish. All sacrifices of peace offerings from the herd or flock must be without blemish. Some examples of a blemish are animals that are blind, disabled, mutilated, has a discharge, itch, or scab. Bulls or lambs that have a part too long or short can be offered as a freewill offering, but not a vow offering. Animals with messed up testicles can’t be offered.

Leviticus 22:26-30 Ox, Sheep, or goats must remain with its mother for the first seven days of their lives, and only after can they be offered as offerings. An ox or sheep with their young can not be killed on the same day. A sacrifice of thanksgiving must be eaten on the same day and none shall be left until morning.

Leviticus 22:31-22 All the children of Israel are expected to keep the Lord’s commandments and do them and not profane His holy name in order for the Lord to be sanctified among the people. The Lord also sanctifies the people.
