"...shall not eat of them, because they are holy"—Exodus 29:33.

It is forbidden to eat the flesh of a sacrifice that was "damaged" through an invalid thought on the part of the priest who was offering it—i.e. if the priest had in mind that the sacrifice would be consumed after the time limit for eating the sacrifice has elapsed, or if he had in mind to offer the parts of the sacrifice designated to be burnt on the altar after the proper time to do so.
