The Family at Table

Once Moses spoke to Aaron and addressed his living sons,

“The leftovers of offerings are not for everyone. 

They must be treated carefully and eaten where they’re cooked.

At least, that’s what the Lord commands. This can’t be overlooked.”. 


“The breast and thigh you raise up high are for the family.

They can be eaten anywhere, so long as it is clean. 

These are your due for service you will render faithfully.

Forevermore before the Lord your portion they will be.”
