 22:6
 22:7
 22:8
22:7 He then becomes ritually clean at sunset, and he can eat the sacred offerings which are his portion.
Uva hashemesh vetaher ve'achar yochal min-hakodashim ki lachmo hu.
22:8 [The priest] shall not eat any creature that has died on its own, and which [is forbidden only because it] has a fatal lesion, since this will defile him. I am God.
Nevelah utrefah lo yochal letome'ah-vah ani Adonay.



Commentary:

any creature...
  This is speaking of a dead kosher bird, as in Leviticus 17:15 (Chullin 100b; Rashi).
