Lev08-Aaron and Sons Consecrated 

The Lord spoke to Moses.  

Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and a bullock for the sin offering, and two rams, and a basket of unleavened bread;

Gather all the congregation together at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Moses did as the Lord commanded.

The assembly was gathered together at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Moses (to the congregation): This is the thing which the Lord commanded to be done.

Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water.

He put the garments of the high priest on Aaron. (Exodus 39)

And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it, and sanctified them.

He sprinkled anointing oil on the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all its vessels, both the laver and his foot, to sanctify them. And he poured of the anointing oil on Aaron’s head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.

Then Moses brought Aaron’s sons, and put coats on them, and girded them with girdles, and put bonnets on them.

Moses brought the bullock for the sin offering (Leviticus 4): and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the bullock for the sin offering. And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it on the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to make reconciliation on it.

Moses took all the fat that was on the entrails, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat and burned it on the altar.

But Moses burned the bullock, and his hide, his flesh, and his dung, with fire outside the camp; as the Lord commanded.

Moses brought the ram for the burnt offering (Leviticus 1). Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram. And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood on the altar. And he cut the ram into pieces; and Moses burnt the head, and the pieces, and the fat. And he washed the entrails and the legs in water; and Moses burnt the whole ram on the altar:

It was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet savor, and an offering made by fire to the Lord.

Moses brought the other ram, the ram of consecration.

Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram. And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it on the tip of Aaron’s right ear, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the great toe of his right foot.

Moses brought Aaron’s sons, and took of the blood of ram and put of it on the tip of their right ear, and on the thumbs of their right hands, and on the great toes of their right feet.

Moses sprinkled the blood on the altar.

And he took the fat, and the rump, and all the fat that was upon the entrails, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right shoulder:

And out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before the Lord, he took one unleavened cake, and a cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and put them on the fat, and on the right shoulder:

And he put all in Aaron’s hands, and in his sons’ hands, and waved them for a wave offering before the Lord.

And Moses took them from out of their hands, and burned them on the altar on the burnt offering: they were consecrations for a sweet savor: it is an offering made by fire to the Lord. And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave offering before the Lord: for of the ram of consecration it was Moses’ part; as the Lord commanded Moses.

And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was on the altar, and sprinkled it un Aaron, and on his garments, and on his sons, and on his sons’ garments with him; and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons’ garments with him.

Moses (to Aaron and his sons): Boil the flesh at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and eat it there with the bread that is in the basket of consecrations. And you shall burn with fire that which remains of the flesh and of the bread. And you shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation for seven days, until the days of your consecration is at an end: for seven days he shall consecrate you. As he has done this day, so the Lord has commanded to do, to make an atonement for you. Therefore you shall remain at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the Lord, that you do not die: for so I am commanded.

Aaron and his sons did all things which the Lord commanded by the hand of Moses.
