Aaron and his sons are to be washed, anointed, and consecrated—Various sacrificial rites are to be performed—Atonement is to be made for the sins of the people—The Lord promises to dwell among them.
1 And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to ahallow them, to minister unto me in the bpriest’s office: Take one cyoung bullock, and two rams without blemish,
2 And aunleavened bread, and cakes unleavened btempered with oil, and wafers unleavened canointed with oil: of wheaten flour shalt thou make them.
3 And thou shalt put them into one basket, and bring them in the basket, with the bullock and the two rams.
4 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the adoor of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt bwash them with water.
5 And thou shalt take the agarments, and put upon Aaron the bcoat, and the robe of the cephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate, and gird him with the dcurious girdle of the ephod:
6 And thou shalt put the amitre upon his head, and put the holy crown upon the mitre.
7 Then shalt thou take the aanointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him.
8 And thou shalt bring his sons, and put coats upon them.
9 And thou shalt agird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and bput the bonnets on them: and the cpriest’s office shall be theirs for a perpetual dstatute: and thou shalt econsecrate Aaron and his sons.
10 And thou shalt cause a abullock to be brought before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron and his sons shall put their bhands upon the head of the bullock.
11 And thou shalt kill the bullock before the Lord, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
12 And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger, and apour all the blood beside the bottom of the baltar.
13 And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the inwards, and the acaul that is above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and burn them upon the altar.
14 But the flesh of the abullock, and his skin, and his dung, shalt thou bburn with fire without the camp: it is a sin offering.
15 ¶ Thou shalt also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
16 And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his blood, and sprinkle it round about upon the altar.
17 And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces, and wash the inwards of him, and his legs, and put them aunto his pieces, and unto his head.
18 And thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is a burnt aoffering unto the Lord: it is a bsweet csavour, an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
19 ¶ And thou shalt take the other aram; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
20 Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.
21 And thou shalt take of the blood that is upon the altar, and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him: and ahe shall be hallowed, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons’ garments with him.
22 Also thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the arump, and the fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right bshoulder; for it is a ram of consecration:
23 And one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer out of the basket of the aunleavened bread that is before the Lord:
24 And thou shalt put all in the hands of Aaron, and in the hands of his sons; and shalt awave them for a wave offering before the Lord.
25 And thou shalt receive them of their hands, and burn them upon the altar for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour before the Lord: it is an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
26 And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of Aaron’s consecration, and wave it for a awave offering before the Lord: and it shall be thy part.
27 And thou shalt sanctify the breast of the wave offering, and the shoulder of the aheave offering, which is bwaved, and which is cheaved up, of the ram of the consecration, even of that which is for Aaron, and of that which is for his sons:
28 And it shall be Aaron’s and his sons’ by a astatute for ever from the children of Israel: for it is an heave offering: and it shall be an heave offering from the children of Israel of the sacrifice of their peace offerings, even their heave offering unto the Lord.
29 ¶ And the holy agarments of Aaron shall be his sons’ after him, to be banointed therein, and to be consecrated in them.
30 And that son that is priest in his stead shall put them on seven days, when he cometh into the tabernacle of the congregation to minister in the holy place.
31 ¶ And thou shalt take the ram of the consecration, and aseethe his flesh in the holy place.
32 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the bread that is in the basket, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
33 And they shall aeat those things wherewith the atonement was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but a bstranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.
34 And if ought of the flesh of the consecrations, or of the bread, remain unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder with fire: it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.
35 And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to all things which I have commanded thee: aseven days shalt thou bconsecrate them.
36 And thou shalt offer every day a bullock for a sin offering for atonement: and thou shalt cleanse the altar, when thou hast made an atonement for it, and thou shalt anoint it, to sanctify it.
37 Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy.
38 ¶ Now this is that which thou shalt aoffer upon the altar; two lambs bof the first year cday by day continually.
39 The one lamb thou shalt aoffer in the morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer at even:
40 And with the one lamb a tenth adeal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten boil; and the fourth part of an hin of wine for a cdrink offering.
41 And the other lamb thou shalt offer at aeven, and shalt do thereto according to the bmeat offering of the morning, and according to the drink offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
42 This shall be a continual burnt aoffering throughout your generations at the door of the btabernacle of the congregation before the Lord: where I will meet you, to cspeak there unto thee.
43 And there I will ameet with the children of Israel, and the btabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory.
44 And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me in the priest’s office.
45 ¶ And aI will bdwell camong the children of Israel, and will be their dGod.
46 And they shall know that I am the Lord their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am the Lord their God.
