Torah Trek 79 “Profane not My holy name”

Leviticus Chapter 22

א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 1

And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying:

ב דַּבֵּר אֶל-אַהֲרֹן וְאֶל-בָּנָיו, וְיִנָּזְרוּ מִקָּדְשֵׁי בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל, וְלֹא יְחַלְּלוּ, אֶת-שֵׁם קָדְשִׁי–אֲשֶׁר הֵם מַקְדִּשִׁים לִי, אֲנִי יְהוָה. 2

Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, that they separate themselves from the holy things of the sons of Israel, which they hallow unto Me, and that they profane not My holy name:

I am the LORD.

ג אֱמֹר אֲלֵהֶם, לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם כָּל-אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר-יִקְרַב מִכָּל-זַרְעֲכֶם אֶל-הַקֳּדָשִׁים אֲשֶׁר יַקְדִּישׁוּ בְנֵי-יִשְׂרָאֵל לַיהוָה, וְטֻמְאָתוֹ, עָלָיו: וְנִכְרְתָה הַנֶּפֶשׁ הַהִוא, מִלְּפָנַי–אֲנִי יְהוָה. 3 Say unto them:

Whosoever he be of all your seed throughout your generations, that approacheth unto the holy things, which the sons of Israel hallow unto the LORD, having his uncleanness upon him, that soul shall be cut off from before Me:

I am the LORD.

ד אִישׁ אִישׁ מִזֶּרַע אַהֲרֹן, וְהוּא צָרוּעַ אוֹ זָב–בַּקֳּדָשִׁים לֹא יֹאכַל, עַד אֲשֶׁר יִטְהָר; וְהַנֹּגֵעַ, בְּכָל-טְמֵא-נֶפֶשׁ, אוֹ אִישׁ, אֲשֶׁר-תֵּצֵא מִמֶּנּוּ שִׁכְבַת-זָרַע. 4

What man soever of the seed of Aaron is a leper, or hath an issue, he shall not eat of the holy things, until he be clean.

And whoso toucheth any one that is unclean by the dead;

or from whomsoever the flow of seed goeth out;

ה אוֹ-אִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יִגַּע, בְּכָל-שֶׁרֶץ אֲשֶׁר יִטְמָא-לוֹ; אוֹ בְאָדָם אֲשֶׁר יִטְמָא-לוֹ, לְכֹל טֻמְאָתוֹ. 5

or whosoever toucheth any swarming thing, whereby he may be made unclean, or a man of whom he may take uncleanness, whatsoever uncleanness he hath;

ו נֶפֶשׁ אֲשֶׁר תִּגַּע-בּוֹ, וְטָמְאָה עַד-הָעָרֶב; וְלֹא יֹאכַל מִן-הַקֳּדָשִׁים, כִּי אִם-רָחַץ בְּשָׂרוֹ בַּמָּיִם. 6

the soul that toucheth any such shall be unclean until the even, and shall not eat of the holy things, unless he bathe his flesh in water.

ז וּבָא הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ, וְטָהֵר; וְאַחַר יֹאכַל מִן-הַקֳּדָשִׁים, כִּי לַחְמוֹ הוּא. 7

And when the sun is down, he shall be clean;

and afterward he may eat of the holy things, because it is his bread.

ח נְבֵלָה וּטְרֵפָה לֹא יֹאכַל, לְטָמְאָה-בָהּ: אֲנִי, יְהוָה. 8

That which dieth of itself, or is torn of beasts, he shall not eat to defile himself therewith:

I am the LORD.

ט וְשָׁמְרוּ אֶת-מִשְׁמַרְתִּי, וְלֹא-יִשְׂאוּ עָלָיו חֵטְא, וּמֵתוּ בוֹ, כִּי יְחַלְּלֻהוּ: אֲנִי יְהוָה, מְקַדְּשָׁם. 9

They shall therefore keep My charge, lest they bear sin for it, and die therein, if they profane it:

I am the LORD who sanctify them.

י וְכָל-זָר, לֹא-יֹאכַל קֹדֶשׁ; תּוֹשַׁב כֹּהֵן וְשָׂכִיר, לֹא-יֹאכַל קֹדֶשׁ. 10

There shall no common man eat of the holy thing;

a tenant of a priest, or a hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing.

יא וְכֹהֵן, כִּי-יִקְנֶה נֶפֶשׁ קִנְיַן כַּסְפּוֹ–הוּא, יֹאכַל בּוֹ; וִילִיד בֵּיתוֹ, הֵם יֹאכְלוּ בְלַחְמוֹ. 11

But if a priest buy any soul, the purchase of his money, he may eat of it;

and such as are born in his house, they may eat of his bread.

יב וּבַת-כֹּהֵן–כִּי תִהְיֶה, לְאִישׁ זָר: הִוא, בִּתְרוּמַת הַקֳּדָשִׁים לֹא תֹאכֵל. 12

And if a priest’s daughter be married unto a common man, she shall not eat of that which is set apart from the holy things.

יג וּבַת-כֹּהֵן כִּי תִהְיֶה אַלְמָנָה וּגְרוּשָׁה, וְזֶרַע אֵין לָהּ–וְשָׁבָה אֶל-בֵּית אָבִיהָ כִּנְעוּרֶיהָ, מִלֶּחֶם אָבִיהָ תֹּאכֵל; וְכָל-זָר, לֹא-יֹאכַל בּוֹ. 13

But if a priest’s daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no child, and is returned unto her father’s house, as in her youth, she may eat of her father’s bread;

but there shall no common man eat thereof.

יד וְאִישׁ, כִּי-יֹאכַל קֹדֶשׁ בִּשְׁגָגָה–וְיָסַף חֲמִשִׁיתוֹ עָלָיו, וְנָתַן לַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַקֹּדֶשׁ. 14

And if a man eat of the holy thing through error, then he shall put the fifth part thereof unto it, and shall give unto the priest the holy thing.

טו וְלֹא יְחַלְּלוּ, אֶת-קָדְשֵׁי בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל–אֵת אֲשֶׁר-יָרִימוּ, לַיהוָה. 15

And they shall not profane the holy things of the sons of Israel, which they set apart unto the LORD;

טז וְהִשִּׂיאוּ אוֹתָם עֲו‍ֹן אַשְׁמָה, בְּאָכְלָם אֶת-קָדְשֵׁיהֶם: כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה, מְקַדְּשָׁם. {פ} 16

and so cause them to bear the iniquity that bringeth guilt, when they eat their holy things;

for I am the LORD who sanctify them. {P}
