8:1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses: 2“Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, the anointing oil, the sin-offering bull, the two rams, and the basket of unleavened bread, 3and assemble the whole congregation at the entrance of the Meeting Tent.” 4So Moses did just as the Lord commanded him, and the congregation assembled at the entrance of the Meeting Tent. 5Then Moses said to the congregation: “This is what the Lord has commanded to be done.” 6So Moses brought Aaron and his sons forward and washed them with water. 7Then he put the tunic on Aaron, wrapped the sash around him, and clothed him with the robe. Next he put the ephod on him and placed on him the decorated band of the ephod, and fastened the ephod closely to him with the band. 8He then set the breastpiece on him and put the Urim and Thummim into the breastpiece. 9Finally, he set the turban on his head and attached the gold plate, the holy diadem, to the front of the turban just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 10Then Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and everything in it, and so consecrated them. 11Next he sprinkled some of it on the altar seven times and so anointed the altar, all its vessels, and the washbasin and its stand to consecrate them. 12He then poured some of the anointing oil on the head of Aaron and anointed him to consecrate him. 13Moses also brought forward Aaron’s sons, clothed them with tunics, wrapped sashes around them, and wrapped headbands on them just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 14Then he brought near the sin-offering bull, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the sin-offering bull, 15and he slaughtered it. Moses then took the blood and put it all around on the horns of the altar with his finger and purified the altar, and he poured out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar and so consecrated it to make atonement on it. 16Then he took all the fat on the entrails, the protruding lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and their fat, and Moses offered it all up in smoke on the altar, 17but the rest of the bull—its hide, its flesh, and its dung—he completely burned up outside the camp just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 18Then he presented the burnt-offering ram, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram, 19and he slaughtered it. Moses then splashed the blood against the altar’s sides. 20Then he cut the ram into parts, and Moses offered the head, the parts, and the suet up in smoke, 21but the entrails and the legs he washed with water, and Moses offered the whole ram up in smoke on the altar—it was a burnt offering for a soothing aroma, a gift to the Lord, just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 22Then he presented the second ram, the ram of ordination, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram, 23and he slaughtered it. Moses then took some of its blood and put it on Aaron’s right earlobe, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. 24Next he brought Aaron’s sons forward, and Moses put some of the blood on their right earlobes, on their right thumbs, and on the big toes of their right feet, and Moses splashed the rest of the blood against the altar’s sides. 25Then he took the fat (the fatty tail, all the fat on the entrails, the protruding lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and their fat) and the right thigh, 26and from the basket of unleavened bread that was before the Lord he took one unleavened loaf, one loaf of bread mixed with olive oil, and one wafer, and placed them on the fat parts and on the right thigh. 27He then put all of them on the palms of Aaron and his sons, who waved them as a wave offering before the Lord. 28Moses then took them from their palms and offered them up in smoke on the altar on top of the burnt offering—they were an ordination offering for a soothing aroma; it was a gift to the Lord. 29Finally, Moses took the breast and waved it as a wave offering before the Lord from the ram of ordination. It was Moses’ share just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 30Then Moses took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood which was on the altar and sprinkled it on Aaron and his garments, and on his sons and his sons’ garments. So he consecrated Aaron, his garments, and his sons and his sons’ garments. 31Then Moses said to Aaron and his sons, “Boil the meat at the entrance of the Meeting Tent, and there you are to eat it and the bread which is in the ordination-offering basket, just as I have commanded, saying, ‘Aaron and his sons are to eat it,’ 32but the remainder of the meat and the bread you must burn with fire. 33And you must not go out from the entrance of the Meeting Tent for seven days, until the day when your days of ordination are completed, because you must be ordained over a seven-day period. 34What has been done on this day the Lord has commanded to be done to make atonement for you. 35You must reside at the entrance of the Meeting Tent day and night for seven days and keep the charge of the Lord so that you will not die, for this is what I have been commanded.” 36So Aaron and his sons did all the things the Lord had commanded through Moses. 9:1 On the eighth day Moses summoned Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel, 2and said to Aaron, “Take for yourself a bull calf for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering, both flawless, and present them before the Lord. 3Then tell the Israelites: ‘Take a male goat for a sin offering and a calf and a lamb, both a year old and flawless, for a burnt offering, 4and an ox and a ram for peace offerings to sacrifice before the Lord, and a grain offering mixed with olive oil, for today the Lord is going to appear to you.’” 5So they took what Moses had commanded to the front of the Meeting Tent, and the whole congregation presented them and stood before the Lord. 6Then Moses said, “This is what the Lord has commanded you to do so that the glory of the Lord may appear to you.” 7Moses then said to Aaron, “Approach the altar and make your sin offering and your burnt offering, and make atonement on behalf of yourself and on behalf of the people; and also make the people’s offering and make atonement on behalf of them just as the Lord has commanded.” 8So Aaron approached the altar and slaughtered the sin-offering calf which was for himself. 9Then Aaron’s sons presented the blood to him, and he dipped his finger in the blood and put it on the horns of the altar, and the rest of the blood he poured out at the base of the altar. 10The fat and the kidneys and the protruding lobe of the liver from the sin offering he offered up in smoke on the altar just as the Lord had commanded Moses, 11but the flesh and the hide he completely burned up outside the camp. 12He then slaughtered the burnt offering, and his sons handed the blood to him, and he splashed it against the altar’s sides. 13The burnt offering itself they handed to him by its parts, including the head, and he offered them up in smoke on the altar, 14and he washed the entrails and the legs and offered them up in smoke on top of the burnt offering on the altar. 15Then he presented the people’s offering. He took the sin-offering male goat which was for the people, slaughtered it, and performed a purification rite with it like the first one. 16He then presented the burnt offering, and did it according to the standard regulation. 17Next he presented the grain offering, filled his hand with some of it, and offered it up in smoke on the altar in addition to the morning burnt offering. 18Then he slaughtered the ox and the ram—the peace-offering sacrifices which were for the people—and Aaron’s sons handed the blood to him, and he splashed it against the altar’s sides. 19As for the fat parts from the ox and from the ram (the fatty tail, the fat covering the entrails, the kidneys, and the protruding lobe of the liver), 20they set those on the breasts, and he offered the fat parts up in smoke on the altar. 21Finally Aaron waved the breasts and the right thigh as a wave offering before the Lord just as Moses had commanded. 22Then Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people and blessed them and descended from making the sin offering, the burnt offering, and the peace offering. 23Moses and Aaron then entered into the Meeting Tent. When they came out, they blessed the people, and the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. 24Then fire went out from the presence of the Lord and consumed the burnt offering and the fat parts on the altar, and all the people saw it, so they shouted loudly and fell down with their faces to the ground.
