(g) Peace offerings contain a confession and thanksgiving for a benefit received, and also a vow, and free offering to receive a benefit.

(h) If he makes a vow to offer: or else the flesh of the peace offerings must be eaten the same day.

7:18 And if [any] of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eateth of it shall i bear his iniquity.

(i) The sin for which he offered shall remain.
