But you and your sons with you shall (A)attend to your priesthood for everything concerning the altar and inside the veil, and you are to perform service. I am giving you the priesthood as (B)a [a]bestowed service, but (C)the [b]outsider who comes near shall be put to death.”

The Priests’ Portion

Then the Lord spoke to Aaron, “Now behold, I Myself have given you charge of My [c](D)offerings, even all the holy gifts of the sons of Israel I have given them to you as a portion and to your sons as a perpetual allotment. This shall be yours from the most holy gifts reserved from the fire; every offering of theirs, even (E)every grain offering and every (F)sin offering and every guilt offering, which they shall render to Me, shall be most holy for you and for your sons.
