Leviticus 22:10-13

Note: from  Mary Douglas, Leviticus as Literature, Oxford University Press, 1999.

A. There shall no stranger eat of the holy thing:
a sojourner of the priest, or an hired servant, shall not eat of the holy thing.

B. 11 But if the priest buy any soul with his money, he shall eat of it,
and he that is born in his house: they shall eat of his meat.

C. 12 If the priest’s daughter also be married unto a stranger,
she may not eat of an offering of the holy things.

B’. 13 But if the priest’s daughter be a widow, or divorced, and have no child, and is returned unto her father’s house, as in her youth, she shall eat of her father’s meat:

A’. but there shall no stranger eat thereof.
