“If you present an animal from the herd as a peace offering to the Lord, it
may be a male or a female, but it must have no defects. Lay your hand on
the animal’s head, and slaughter it at the entrance of the Tabernacle. Then
Aaron’s sons, the priests, will splatter its blood against all sides of the altar.
The priest must present part of this peace offering as a special gift to the
Lord. This includes all the fat around the internal organs, the two kidneys
and the fat around them near the loins, and the long lobe of the liver. These
must be removed with the kidneys, and Aaron’s sons will burn them on
top of the burnt offering on the wood burning on the altar. It is a special
gift, a pleasing aroma to the Lord.
“If you present an animal from the flock as a peace offering to the Lord,
it may be a male or a female, but it must have no defects. If you present a
sheep as your offering, bring it to the Lord, lay your hand on its head, and
