Leviticus 8

1The Lord said to Moses, 2“Take Aaron and his sons with him and the clothes, the anointing oil, the bull of the sin offering, the two rams, and the basket of unleavened bread. 3Then bring the people together at the entrance of the Meeting Tent.” 4Moses did what the Lord commanded him. The people met together at the entrance of the Meeting Tent. 5Then Moses said to the people, “This is the thing that the Lord has commanded must be done.” 6Then Moses brought Aaron and his sons. He washed them with water. 7Then Moses put the woven shirt on Aaron and tied the sash ˻(belt)˼ around him. Then Moses put the robe on Aaron. Moses next put the Ephod on Aaron. Then Moses tied the beautiful sash ˻(belt)˼ on Aaron. In that way, Moses put the Ephod on Aaron. 8Moses put the Judgment Pouch on Aaron. Then he put the Urim and Thummim in ˻the pocket of˼ the Judgment Pouch. 9Moses also put the turban on Aaron’s head. Moses put the strip of gold on the front of the turban. This strip of gold is the holy crown. ˻Moses did˼ this just like the Lord had commanded. 10Then Moses took the anointing oil and sprinkled it on the Holy Tent and on all the things in it. In this way, Moses made them holy. 11Moses sprinkled some of the anointing oil on the altar seven times. Moses sprinkled the oil on the altar and on all its tools and dishes. Moses also sprinkled the oil on the bowl and its base. In this way, Moses made them holy. 12Then Moses poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron’s head. In this way, he made Aaron holy. 13Then Moses brought Aaron’s sons and put the woven shirts on them. He tied sashes ˻(belts)˼ on them. Then he wrapped headbands on their heads. ˻Moses did these things˼ just like the Lord had commanded. 14Then Moses brought the bull of the sin offering. Aaron and his sons put their hands on the head of the bull of the sin offering. 15Then Moses killed the bull and collected its blood. Moses used his finger and put some of the blood on all the corners of the altar. In this way, Moses made the altar ready for sacrifices. Then Moses poured out the blood at the base of the altar. In this way, Moses made the altar ready for sacrifices to make the people pure. 16Moses took all the fat from the inside parts ˻of the bull˼. Moses took the fat part of the liver with the two kidneys and the fat on them. Then he burned them on the altar. 17But Moses ˻took˼ the bull’s skin, its meat, and its body waste outside the camp. Moses burned those things in a fire outside the camp. Moses did those things like the Lord commanded him. 18Then Moses brought the ram of the burnt offering. Aaron and his sons put their hands on the ram’s head. 19Then Moses killed the ram. He sprinkled the blood around on the altar. 20- 21Moses cut the ram into pieces. Moses washed the inside parts and legs with water. Then Moses burned the whole ram on the altar. Moses burned the head, the pieces, and the fat. It was a burnt offering made by fire. Its smell pleased the Lord. Moses did those things like the Lord commanded. 22Then Moses brought the other ram. This ram was used for appointing Aaron and his sons to become priests. Aaron and his sons put their hands on the ram’s head. 23Then Moses killed the ram. He put some of its blood on the tip of Aaron’s ear, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of Aaron’s right foot. 24Then Moses brought Aaron’s sons close ˻to the altar˼. Moses put some of the blood on the tip of their right ears, on the thumb of their right hands, and on the big toe of their right feet. Then Moses sprinkled the blood around on the altar. 25Moses took the fat, the fat tail, all the fat on the inside parts, the fat covering of the liver, the two kidneys and their fat, and the right thigh. 26A basket of unleavened bread is put before the Lord each day. Moses took one of those loaves of bread, and one loaf of bread mixed with oil, and one unleavened wafer. Moses put those pieces of bread on the fat and on the right thigh of the ram. 27Then Moses put all ˻those things˼ in the hands of Aaron and his sons. Moses waved the pieces as a wave offering before the Lord. 28Then Moses took these things from the hands of Aaron and his sons. Moses burned them on the altar on top of the burnt offering. So that was the offering for appointing Aaron and his sons as priests. It was an offering made by fire. Its smell pleased the Lord. 29Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave offering in front of the Lord. It was Moses’ share of the ram for appointing the priests. This was like the Lord had commanded Moses. 30Moses took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood that was on the altar. Moses sprinkled some on Aaron and on Aaron’s clothes. Moses sprinkled some on Aaron’s sons that were with Aaron and on their clothes. In this way, Moses made Aaron, his clothes, his sons, and his sons’ clothes holy. 31Then Moses said to Aaron and his sons, “˻Do you remember my command?˼ I said, 'Aaron and his sons must eat these things.’ So take the basket of bread and meat from the ceremony for choosing the priests. Boil that meat at the entrance of the Meeting Tent. Eat the meat and bread at that place. Do this like I told you. 32If any of the meat or bread is left, then burn it. 33The ceremony for choosing the priests will last for seven days. You must not leave the entrance of the Meeting Tent until that time is finished. 34The Lord has commanded to do the things that were done today. He commanded these things to make you pure. 35You must stay at the entrance of the Meeting Tent day and night for seven days. If you don’t obey the Lord’s commands, then you will die! The Lord gave me those commands.” 36So Aaron and his sons did all the things that the Lord had commanded Moses.
