You shall make them of fine wheat flour. 3You shall put them in one basket and bring them in the basket, and bring the bull and the two rams. 4You shall bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance of the tent of meeting and c wash them with water. 5Then d you shall take the garments, and put on Aaron the coat and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastpiece, and gird him with the e skillfully woven band of the ephod. 6 f And you shall set the turban on his head and put the holy crown on the turban. 7You shall take g the anointing oil and pour it on his head and anoint him. 8Then you h shall bring his sons and put coats on them, 9and you shall gird Aaron and his sons with i sashes and bind caps on them. And j the priesthood shall be theirs by a statute forever. Thus you shall k ordain Aaron and his sons. 10“Then you shall bring the bull before the tent of meeting. l Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the bull. 11Then you shall kill the bull before the Lord at the entrance of the tent of meeting, 12and m shall take part of the blood of the bull and put it on the n horns of the altar with your finger, and the rest of ▼
▼Hebrew allthe blood you shall pour out at the base of the altar. 13And you shall take all p the fat that covers the entrails, and the long lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys with the fat that is on them, and burn them on the altar. 14But the flesh of the bull and its skin and its dung you shall burn with fire q outside the camp; r it is a sin offering. 15“Then s you shall take one of the rams, and t Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram, 16and you shall kill the ram and shall take its blood and throw it against the sides of the altar. 17Then you shall u cut the ram into pieces, and wash its entrails and its legs, and put them with its pieces and its head, 18and burn the whole ram on the altar. It is a burnt offering to the Lord. It is a v pleasing aroma, a food offering ▼
▼Or an offering by fire; also verses 25, 41to the Lord. 19 x “You shall take the other ram y and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram, 20and you shall kill the ram and take part of its blood and put it on the tip of the right ear of Aaron and on the tips of the right ears of his sons, and on the thumbs of their right hands and on the great toes of their right feet, and throw the rest of the blood against the sides of the altar. 21Then you shall take part of the blood that is on the altar, and of the z anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron and his garments, and on his sons and his sons’ garments with him. He and his garments shall be holy, and his sons and his sons’ garments with him. 22“You shall also take the fat from the ram and the fat tail and the aa fat that covers the entrails, and the long lobe of the liver and the two kidneys with the fat that is on them, and the right thigh (for it is a ram of ab ordination), 23and ac one loaf of bread and one cake of bread made with oil, and one wafer out of the basket of unleavened bread that is before the Lord. 24You shall put all these on the palms of Aaron and on the palms of his sons, and ad wave them for a wave offering before the Lord. 25Then ae you shall take them from their hands and burn them on the altar on top of the burnt offering, as a af pleasing aroma before the Lord. It is a food offering to the Lord. 26“You shall take the ag breast of the ram of Aaron’s ah ordination and ai wave it for a wave offering before the Lord, and it shall be your portion. 27And you shall consecrate the aj breast of the wave offering that is waved and the ak thigh of the priests’ portion that is contributed from the ram of al ordination, from what was Aaron’s and his sons’. 28It shall be for Aaron and his sons as a am perpetual due from the people of Israel, for it is a an contribution. It shall be a ao contribution from the people of Israel from their peace offerings, their contribution to the Lord. 29“The holy garments of Aaron ap shall be for his sons after him; they shall aq be anointed in them and ordained in them. 30The son who succeeds him as priest, who comes into the tent of meeting to minister in the Holy Place, shall wear them ar seven days. 31“You shall take the ram of ordination and as boil its flesh in a holy place. 32And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram and the at bread that is in the basket in the entrance of the tent of meeting. 33 au They shall eat those things with which atonement was made at their ordination and consecration, but an av outsider shall not eat of them, because they are holy. 34And if any of the flesh for the ordination or of the bread remain until the morning, then you shall aw burn the remainder with fire. It shall not be eaten, because it is holy. 35“Thus you shall do to Aaron and to his sons, according to all that I have commanded you. Through ax seven days shall you ordain them,
Consecration of Aaron and His Sons1 ay The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2“Take Aaron and his sons with him, and az the garments and ba the anointing oil and the bull of the sin offering and the two rams and the basket of unleavened bread. 3And assemble all the congregation at the entrance of the tent of meeting.” 4And Moses did as the Lord commanded him, and the congregation was assembled at the entrance of the tent of meeting. 5And Moses said to the congregation, bb “This is the thing that the Lord has commanded to be done.” 6And Moses brought Aaron and his sons and washed them with water. 7And he put bc the coat on him and tied the sash around his waist and clothed him with the robe and put the ephod on him and tied the skillfully woven band of the ephod around him, binding it to him with the band. ▼
▼Hebrew with it8And he placed the breastpiece on him, and be in the breastpiece he put the Urim and the Thummim. 9And he set bf the turban on his head, and bg on the turban, in front, he set the golden plate, the holy crown, as the Lord commanded Moses. 10 bh Then Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it, and consecrated them. 11And he sprinkled some of it on the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all its utensils and the basin and its stand, to consecrate them. 12And bi he poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron’s head and anointed him to consecrate him. 13And Moses brought Aaron’s sons and clothed them with coats and tied sashes around their waists and bound caps on them, as the Lord commanded Moses.
The Lord Accepts Aaron’s Offering1 bj On the eighth day Moses called Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel, 2and he said to Aaron, bk “Take for yourself a bull calf for a sin offering and bl a ram for a burnt offering, both without blemish, and offer them before the Lord. 3And say to the people of Israel, bm ‘Take a male goat for a sin offering, and a calf and a lamb, both a year old without blemish, for a burnt offering, 4and an ox and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the Lord, and bn a grain offering mixed with oil, for bo today the Lord will appear to you.’” 5And they brought what Moses commanded in front of the tent of meeting, and all the congregation drew near and stood before the Lord. 6And Moses said, “This is the thing that the Lord commanded you to do, that the glory of the Lord may appear to you.” 7Then Moses said to Aaron, “Draw near to the altar and bp offer your sin offering and your burnt offering and bq make atonement for yourself and for the people, and bring the offering of the people and make atonement for them, as the Lord has commanded.” 8So Aaron drew near to the altar and killed the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself. 9 br And the sons of Aaron presented the blood to him, and he dipped his finger in the blood and bs put it on the horns of the altar and poured out the blood at the base of the altar. 10 bt But the fat and the kidneys and the long lobe of the liver from the sin offering he burned on the altar bu as the Lord commanded Moses. 11 bv The flesh and the skin he burned up with fire outside the camp. 12Then he killed the burnt offering, and Aaron’s sons handed him the blood, and he bw threw it against the sides of the altar. 13 bx And they handed the burnt offering to him, piece by piece, and the head, and he burned them on the altar. 14 by And he washed the entrails and the legs and burned them with the burnt offering on the altar. 15 bz Then he presented the people’s offering and took the goat of the sin offering that was for the people and killed it and ca offered it as a sin offering, cb like the first one. 16And he presented the burnt offering and offered it cc according to the cd rule. 17And he presented the ce grain offering, took a handful of it, and burned it on the altar, cf besides the burnt offering of the morning. 18Then he killed the ox and the ram, cg the sacrifice of peace offerings for the people. And Aaron’s sons handed him the blood, and he threw it against the sides of the altar. 19But the fat pieces of the ox and of the ram, the fat tail and that which covers ch the entrails and the kidneys and the long lobe of the liver— 20they put the fat pieces on the breasts, ci and he burned the fat pieces on the altar, 21but the breasts and the right thigh Aaron waved cj for a wave offering before the Lord, as Moses commanded. 22Then Aaron ck lifted up his hands toward the people and cl blessed them, and he came down from offering the sin offering and the burnt offering and the peace offerings. 23And Moses and Aaron went into the tent of meeting, and when they came out they blessed the people, and cm the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. 24And cn fire came out from before the Lord and consumed the burnt offering and the pieces of fat on the altar, and when all the people saw it, co they shouted and cp fell on their faces.
The Righteous Reign of the Branch1 There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of cq Jesse,
and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.
2And cr the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
3And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord.
cs He shall not judge by ct what his eyes see,
or decide disputes by cu what his ears hear,
4but cv with righteousness he shall judge the poor,
and decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
and he shall cw strike the earth with the rod of his mouth,
and cx with the breath of his lips cy he shall kill the wicked.
5Righteousness shall be the belt of his waist,
and cz faithfulness the belt of his loins.
The Year of the Lord’s Favor1 da The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
because the Lord has db anointed me
to bring good news to the poor; ▼
he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and dd the opening of the prison to those who are bound; ▼
▼Or the opening [of the eyes] to those who are blind; Septuagint and recovery of sight to the blind
2 df to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor,
dg and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all who mourn;
3to grant to those who mourn in Zion—
dh to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,
di the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;
dj that they may be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord dk that he may be glorified. ▼
▼Or that he may display his beauty
