7:19 Any [sacrificial] flesh that comes in contact with something unclean may not be eaten; it must be burned in fire. Otherwise, any ritually clean person may eat the flesh.
Vehabasar asher yiga bechol-tame lo ye'achel ba'esh yisaref vehabasar kol-tahor yochal basar.
7:20 But if any person eats the flesh of a peace sacrifice to God while still in a state of ritual uncleanliness, his soul will be cut off from his people.
Vehanefesh asher-tochal basar mizevach hashlamim asher l'Adonay vetum'ato alav venichretah hanefesh hahi me'ameyha.


sacrificial flesh
  (Rashi). The verse merely mentions 'flesh,' but in the desert, the only flesh eaten was sacrificial flesh (see Deuteronomy 12:15).
