Preview of English translation:
24. Now those who made offerings in former times, touched (the altar and oblations) at this particular time, while they were sacrificing. They became more sinful. Those who washed (their hands) became righteous. Then unbelief took hold of men: “Those who sacrifice become more sinful, and those who sacrifice not become righteous,” they said. No sacrificial food then came to the gods from this world: for the gods subsist on what is offered up from this world.
