The Sanctification of the Priests1And these are what you shall do to them, to sanctify them, so as to officiate as priest to me. You shall take [2young calf 3from out of 4the oxen 1one], and [3rams 2unblemished 1two], 2and [2breads 1unleavened] being mixed up with olive oil, and [2pancakes 1unleavened] being coated with olive oil. [3of fine flour 4of wheat 1You shall make 2them]. 3And you shall place them upon [2bin 1one], and you shall offer them at the bin, and the young calf, and the two rams. 4And Aaron and his sons you shall lead forward at the door of the tent of the testimony, and you shall bathe them in water. 5And taking the apparels, you shall put on Aaron your brother both the inner garment, the foot length robe, and the shoulder-piece, and the oracle; and you shall join it -- the oracle to the shoulder-piece. 6And you shall place the mitre upon his head; and you shall place the [2panel 1sanctified] upon the mitre. 7And you shall take of the oil of the scented unguent, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him. 8And his sons you shall lead forward, and put on them the inner garments. 9And you shall tie around them the belts, and shall put on them the turbans, and it will be for them a priesthood to me into the eon. And you shall perfect the hands of Aaron, and the hands of his sons. 10And you shall lead forward the calf unto the door of the tent of the testimony. And [4shall place 1Aaron 2and 3his sons] their hands upon the head of the calf, before the lord, by the doors of the tent of the testimony. 11And you shall slay the calf before the lord by the doors of the tent of the testimony. 12And you shall take from the blood of the calf, and put it upon the horns of the altar with your finger. [3the 1And 4remaining 2all] blood you shall discharge by the base of the altar. 13And you shall take all the fat, upon the belly, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat upon them, and you shall place it upon the altar. 14But the meats of the calf, and the skin, and the dung you shall incinerate with fire outside the camp, [3an offering on account of sin 1for 2it is]. 15And [3ram 1you shall take 2one], and [4shall place 1Aaron 2and 3his sons] their hands upon the head of the ram. 16And you shall slay the ram. And taking the blood of it, you shall pour it upon the altar round about. 17And the ram you shall cut in pieces according to its limbs. And you shall wash the entrails, and the feet in water. And you shall place them upon the pieces with the head. 18And you shall offer all the ram upon the altar as a whole burnt-offering to the lord, for a scent of pleasant aroma; [2a sacrifice 3to the lord 1it is]. 19And you shall take the ram -- the second; and [4shall place 1Aaron 2and 3his sons] their hands upon the head of the ram. 20And you shall slay it, and take of the blood of it, and place it upon the lobe of the ear of Aaron -- of the right one, and upon the big toe of the foot -- of the right one, and upon the lobes of the [2ears 3of his sons 1right], and upon the thumbs [3hands 1of their 2right], and upon the big toes [3feet 1of their 2right]. 21And you shall take from of the blood, of blood before the altar, and from the oil of the anointing, and you shall sprinkle it upon Aaron, and upon his apparel, and upon his sons, and upon the apparels of his sons with him. And you shall sanctify him, and his apparel, and his sons, and the apparels of his sons with him. And the blood of the ram you shall pour before the altar round about. 22And you shall take from the ram its fat, both the fat covering up the belly, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat upon them, and the [2shoulder 1right] -- [3is 1for 4a consecration 2this]. 23And [2bread loaf 1one] made with olive oil, and [2pancake 1one] from the bin of the unleavened breads, of the ones being set before the lord. 24And you shall place the whole amount upon the hands of Aaron, and upon the hands of his sons. And you shall separate them as a separation offering before the lord. 25And you shall take them from their hands, and you shall offer them upon the altar of the whole burnt-offering as a scent of pleasant aroma before the lord -- [2a yield offering 1it is] to the lord. 26And you shall take the breast from the ram of the consecration, which is Aaron's, and you shall separate it as a separation offering before the lord -- and it will be to you for a portion. 27And you shall sanctify the [2breast 1separation offering], and the shoulder of the choice portion which has been separated, and which has been removed from the ram of the consecration -- from Aaron, and from his sons. 28And it will be to Aaron, and to his sons [2law 1an eternal] for the sons of Israel, [3is 1for 4a choice portion 2this]; and [2a choice portion 1it will be] by the sons of Israel from the things offered in sacrifices of the deliverance offerings -- a choice portion to the lord. 29And the apparel of the holy place which is Aaron's, shall be to his sons' after him, for them to be anointed in them, and to perfect their hands. 30Seven days he shall put them on -- the priest replacing him from his sons, who shall enter into the tent of the testimony to officiate in the holy place. 31And the ram of the consecration you shall take, and you shall boil the meats in [2place 1the holy]. 32And [4shall eat 1Aaron 2and 3his sons] the meats of the ram, and the bread loaves that are in the bin by the door of the tent of the testimony. 33They shall eat the offerings with which they were sanctified by them, to perfect their hands, to sanctify them. And a foreigner shall not eat from them, for it is holy. 34And if anything should be left behind from the meats of the sacrifice of the consecration, and of the bread loaves, until morning, you shall incinerate the remainder with fire; it shall not be eaten, [3sanctified 1for 2it is]. 35And you shall do for Aaron and his sons thus according to all as much as I gave charge to you. Seven days you shall perfect their hands. 36And the young calf, the one of the sin offering, you shall offer in the day of cleansing. And you shall cleanse the altar in your sanctifying upon it. And you shall anoint it so as to sanctify it. 37Seven days you shall cleanse the altar, and sanctify it. And [3will be 1the 2altar] a holy of the holies; all touching the altar shall be sanctified. 38And these are what you shall offer upon the altar -- lambs of a year old, unblemished, two for each day perpetually -- a yield offering of perpetuity. 39The lamb -- the first one you shall offer in the morning, and the [2lamb 1second], you shall offer at dusk. 40And a tenth measure of fine flour being mixed with olive oil being beaten to the fourth part of a hin; and a libation -- the fourth part of the hin of wine to the lamb -- to the first one. 41And the lamb -- the second, you shall offer at dusk, after the manner of the sacrifice -- the early morning, and according to its libation you shall do it for a scented pleasant aroma, a yield offering to the lord; 42[2sacrifice 1a perpetual] unto your generations upon the doors of the tent of the testimony before the lord, in which I will be known to you there, so as to speak to you. 43And I will give orders there to the sons of Israel, and I will be sanctified in my glory. 44And I will sanctify the tent of the testimony, and the altar; and Aaron, and his sons I will sanctify, to officiate as priests to me. 45And I will be called upon by the sons of Israel, and I will be their God. 46And they shall know that I am the lord their God, the one leading them from out of the land of Egypt, to be called upon by them, and to be their God.
