||[The priests] shall thus keep My charge and not profane [the sacred offering], which is a sin that can cause them to die. I am God [and] I am making them holy.

||No non-priest may eat the sacred offering. Even if a person resides with a priest or is hired by him, that person may not eat the sacred offering.
Vechol-zar lo-yochal kodesh toshav kohen vesachir lo-yochal kodesh.

|if a person...|
Even a Hebrew slave, and even if his ear has been pierced as in Exodus 21:6 (Yevamoth 70a; Rashi).
