Leviticus 9

1On the eighth day, Moses called Aaron and his sons. He also called the elders ˻(leaders)˼ of Israel. 2Moses said to Aaron, “Take a bull and a ram. There must be nothing wrong with those animals. The bull will be a sin offering, and the ram will be a burnt offering. Offer those animals to the Lord. 3Tell the people of Israel, 'Take a male goat for a sin offering. And take a calf and a lamb for a burnt offering. The calf and the lamb must each be one year old. There must be nothing wrong with those animals. 4Take a bull and a ram for fellowship offerings. Take those animals and a grain offering mixed with oil, and offer those things to the Lord. Why? Because today the Lord will appear to you.’” 5So all the people came to the Meeting Tent. They all brought the things that Moses had commanded. All the people stood before the Lord. 6Moses said, “You must do those things that the Lord commanded. Then the Glory of the Lord will appear to you.” 7Then Moses told Aaron these things: “Go do the things the Lord commanded. Go to the altar and offer sin offerings and burnt offerings. Do those things that will make you and the people pure. Take the people’s sacrifices and do the things that will make them pure.” 8So Aaron went to the altar. He killed the bull for the sin offering. This sin offering was for himself. 9Then the sons of Aaron brought the blood to Aaron. Aaron put his finger in the blood and put it on the corners of the altar. Then Aaron poured out the blood at the base of the altar. 10Aaron took the fat, the kidneys, and the fat part of the liver from the sin offering. He burned those things on the altar just like the Lord had commanded Moses. 11Then Aaron burned the meat and skin on a fire outside the camp. 12Next, Aaron killed the ˻animal for the˼ burnt offering. ˻The animal was cut into pieces.˼ Aaron’s sons brought the blood to Aaron. And Aaron sprinkled the blood around on the altar. 13Aaron’s sons gave the pieces and head of the burnt offering to Aaron. Then Aaron burned ˻them˼ on the altar. 14Aaron also washed the inside parts and the legs of the burnt offering. And he burned them on the altar. 15Then Aaron brought the people’s offering. He killed the goat of the sin offering that was for the people. He offered the goat for sin, like the first. 16Aaron brought the burnt offering and offered it, like the Lord had commanded. 17Aaron brought the grain offering to the altar. He took a handful of the grain and put it on the altar beside that morning’s daily sacrifice. 18Aaron also killed the bull and the ram, the sacrifice of fellowship offerings for the people. Aaron’s sons brought the blood to Aaron. Aaron sprinkled this blood around on the altar. 19Aaron’s sons also brought to Aaron the fat of the bull and the ram. They brought the fat tail, the ˻fat˼ covering the inside parts, the kidneys and the fat part of the liver. 20Aaron’s sons put these fat parts on the breasts ˻of the bull and the ram˼. Aaron burned the fat parts on the altar. 21Aaron waved the breasts and the right thigh for a wave offering before the Lord, like Moses had commanded. 22Then Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people and blessed them. After Aaron finished offering the sin offering, the burnt offering, and the fellowship offerings, he came down ˻from the altar˼. 23Moses and Aaron went into the Meeting Tent. They came out and blessed the people. Then the Glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. 24Fire came out from the Lord and burned the burnt offering and fat on the altar. When all the people saw this, they shouted and bowed their faces low to the ground.
