Law of Various Offerings Leviticus 7

v1 The law of the trespass offering
v11 and of the peace offerings
v12 whether it be for thanksgiving
v16 or a vow or a freewill offering
v22 The fat,
v26 and the blood, are forbidden
v28 The priests' portion in the peace offerings

We can tell from the outline that a peace offering can be for thanksgiving or vow or freewill offering.

Leviticus 7 23-24 "Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Ye shall eat no manner of fat, of ox, or sheep, or of goat. And the fat of the beast that dieth of itself, and the fat of that which is torn with beasts, may be used in any other use: but ye shall in no wise eat of it."

v26 "Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, whether it be of fowl or of beast, in any of your dwellings."

v33 "He among the sons of Aaron that offereth the blood of the peace offerings, and the fat, shall have the right shoulder for his part."

And so we continue with the law of the offerings. The details are very specific. For those who do not according to the law, there is a stern warning and the warning is given often. v27 "...even that soul shall be cut off from his people."

We should at this point remember what the people said back at Mount Sinai.

Exodus 19:8 "And all the people answered together, and said, All that the Lord hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the Lord."

Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple."
