Leviticus 17:5-7

Context
17:5 This is so that 1  the Israelites will bring their sacrifices that they are sacrificing in the open field 2  to the Lord at the entrance of the Meeting Tent to the priest and sacrifice them there as peace offering sacrifices to the Lord. 17:6 The priest is to splash 3  the blood on the altar 4  of the Lord at the entrance of the Meeting Tent, and offer the fat up in smoke for a soothing aroma to the Lord. 17:7 So they must no longer offer 5  their sacrifices to the goat demons, 6  acting like prostitutes by going after them. 7  This is to be a perpetual statute for them throughout their generations. 8 

1 tn Heb “So that which.”

2 tn Heb “on the faces of the field.”

3 tn For the translation “splash” see the note on Lev 1:5.

4 tn The LXX adds “all around” (i.e., Hebrew סָבִיב [saviv, “all around”]), which is normal for this overall construction (see, e.g., Lev 1:5; 3:8, etc.).

5 tn Heb “sacrifice.” This has been translated as “offer” for stylistic reasons to avoid the redundancy of “sacrifice their sacrifices.”

6 tn On “goat demons” of the desert regions see the note on Lev 16:8.

7 tn Heb “which they are committing harlotry after them.”

8 tn Heb “for your generations.”
