Leviticus 8

CHAPTER 8

Consecration of Aaron and His Sons

And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, Take Aaron and his sons, and the apparels, and the olive oil for the anointing, and the calf for the sin offering, and the two rams, and the bin of the unleavened breads! And let all the congregation hold an assembly at the door of the tent of the testimony! And Moses did in which manner [2ordered 3him 1the  lord]. And he held an assembly of the congregation at the door of the tent of the testimony. And Moses said to the congregation, This is the word which the  lord gave charge to do. And Moses led forward Aaron, and his sons, and bathed them in water. And he put on him the inner garment, and tied [3around 4him 1the 2belt], and put on him the undergarment, and placed upon him the shoulder-piece, and tied it together on him, according to the making of the shoulder-piece, and fastened it to him. And he placed upon him the oracle; and he placed upon the oracle the Manifestation and the Truth. And he placed the mitre upon his head. And he placed [4upon 5the 6mitre 7down 8in front 9of him 3panel 1the 2golden], for the [2consecrating 1holy], in which manner the  lord gave orders to Moses. 10 And Moses took from the oil of the anointing, 11 and he sprinkled from it upon the altar seven times. And he anointed the altar, and sanctified it, and all its utensils, and the bathing tub, and its base. And he sanctified them, and he anointed the tent, and all its items, and he sanctified it. 12 And Moses poured of the oil of the anointing upon the head of Aaron. And he anointed him, and sanctified him. 13 And Moses led forward the sons of Aaron; and he put on them inner garments, and tied around them belts, and put on them turbans, just as the  lord gave orders to Moses. 14 And Moses brought the calf, the one for the sin offering. And [4placed 1Aaron 2and 3his sons] their hands upon the head of the calf, of the one for the sin offering. 15 And he slew it. And Moses took of the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger; and he cleansed the altar. And the blood he poured out upon the base of the altar; and he sanctified it, to atone upon it. 16 And Moses took all the fat upon the entrails, and the lobe upon the liver, and both of the kidneys, and the fat upon them; and Moses offered them upon the altar. 17 And the calf and its hide, and its meats, and its dung he incinerated in fire outside the camp, in which manner the  lord gave orders to Moses. 18 And Moses brought the ram, the one for a whole burnt-offering. And [4placed 1Aaron 2and 3his sons] their hands upon the head of the ram. 19 And Moses slew the ram. And Moses poured the blood upon the altar round about. 20 And [2the 3ram 1he dressed] according to its limbs. And Moses offered up the head, and the limbs, and the fat; 21 and the belly and the feet he washed in water. And Moses offered up the entire ram upon the altar. [2a whole burnt-offering 1It is] for a scent of pleasant aroma; [2a yield offering 1it is] to the  lord, just as the  lord gave charge to Moses. 22 And Moses brought the [2ram 1second], the ram of consecration. And [4placed 1Aaron 2and 3his sons] their hands upon the head of the ram. 23 And he slew it. And Moses took some of its blood, and placed it upon the lobe of the [2ear 3of Aaron 1right], and upon the thumb [3hand 1of his 2right], and upon the big toe [3foot 1of his 2right]. 24 And Moses brought the sons of Aaron. And Moses put some of the blood upon the lobe [3ear 1of their 2right], and upon the thumb [3hand 1of their 2right], and upon the big toe [3foot 1of their 2right]. And Moses poured the blood upon the altar round about. 25 And he took the fat, and the loin, and the fat upon the belly, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat upon them, and the [2shoulder 1right]. 26 And from the bin of the consecration being before the  lord, he took [3bread loaf 1one 2unleavened], and [2bread loaf 3made of 4olive oil 1one], and [2pancake 1one], and he placed them upon the fat and upon the [2shoulder 1right]. 27 And he put all these in the hands of Aaron, and upon the hands of his sons. And he offered them as a cut-away portion before the  lord. 28 And Moses took from their hands, and he offered them upon the altar, upon the whole burnt-offering of the consecration, which is a scent of pleasant aroma; [2a yield offering 1it is] to the  lord. 29 And Moses taking the breast, removed it for an increase offering before the  lord, from the ram of the consecration; and it became Moses' portion, as the  lord gave charge to Moses. 30 And Moses took of the oil of the anointing, and of the blood upon the altar; and he sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his apparels, and upon his sons, and upon the apparels of his sons. And he sanctified Aaron and his apparels, and his sons, and the apparels of his sons with him. 31 And Moses said to Aaron and his sons, Boil the meats by the gate of the tent of the testimony in [2place 1the holy]! And there you shall eat them, and the bread loaves, of the ones in the bin of the consecration, in which manner it was ordered to me, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat them. 32 And the amount being left behind of the meats and the bread loaves [2in 3fire 1shall be incinerated]. 33 And from the door of the tent of the testimony you shall not come forth for seven days, until the days of fullness, the days of your consecration; for seven days he will perfect your hands, 34 just as he did in this day, in which the  lord gave charge to do, so as to atone for you. 35 And upon the door of the tent of the testimony you shall sit seven days -- day and night; and you shall guard the injunctions of the  lord, and you shall not die. For thus [2gave charge 3to me 1the  lord]. 36 And [4observed 1Aaron 2and 3his sons] all the words which the  lord gave orders by the hand of Moses.
