The Lord Is Holy

Leviticus 19

1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "Speak to all the congregation of the people of Israel and say to them, t You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy. 3 u Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and v you shall keep my Sabbaths: I am the Lord your God. 4 w Do not turn to idols x or make for yourselves any gods of cast metal: I am the Lord your God.

5 y "When you offer a sacrifice of peace offerings to the Lord, you shall offer it so z that you may be accepted. 6 It shall be eaten the same day you offer it or on the day after, and anything left over until the third day shall be burned up with fire. 7 If it is eaten at all on the third day, it is a tainted; it will not be accepted, 8 and everyone who eats it shall b bear his iniquity, because c he has profaned what is holy to the Lord, and that person shall be cut off from his people.
