29"This is the ceremony you must follow when you consecrate Aaron and his sons to serve me as priests: Take a young bull and two rams with no defects.H1697H6213H6942H3547H3947H259H1121H1241H6499H8147H352H8549 2Then, using choice wheat flour and no yeast, make loaves of bread, thin cakes mixed with olive oil, and wafers spread with oil.H4682H3899H2471H4682H1101H8081H7550H4682H4886H8081H2406H5560H6213 3Place them all in a single basket, and present them at the entrance of the Tabernacle, along with the young bull and the two rams.H5414H259H5536H7126H5536H6499H8147H352 4"Present Aaron and his sons at the entrance of the Tabernacle, and wash them with water.H175H1121H7126H6607H168H4150H7364H4325 5Dress Aaron in his priestly garments—the tunic, the robe worn with the ephod, the ephod itself, and the chestpiece. Then wrap the decorative sash of the ephod around him.H3947H899H3847H175H3801H4598H646H646H2833H640H2805H646 6Place the turban on his head, and fasten the sacred medallion to the turban.H7760H4701H7218H5414H6944H5145H4701 7Then anoint him by pouring the anointing oil over his head.H3947H4888H8081H3332H7218H4886 8Next present his sons, and dress them in their tunics.H7126H1121H3847H3801 9Wrap the sashes around the waists of Aaron and his sons, and put their special head coverings on them. Then the right to the priesthood will be theirs by law forever. In this way, you will ordain Aaron and his sons.H2296H73H175H1121H2280H4021H3550H5769H2708H4390H3027H175H1121 10"Bring the young bull to the entrance of the Tabernacle, where Aaron and his sons will lay their hands on its head.H6499H7126H6440H168H4150H175H1121H5564H3027H7218H6499 11Then slaughter the bull in the LORD's presence at the entrance of the Tabernacle.H7819H6499H6440H3068H6607H168H4150 12Put some of its blood on the horns of the altar with your finger, and pour out the rest at the base of the altar.H3947H1818H6499H5414H7161H4196H676H8210H1818H413H3247H4196 13Take all the fat around the internal organs, the long lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and the fat around them, and burn it all on the altar.H3947H2459H3680H7130H3508H3516H8147H3629H2459H6999H4196 14Then take the rest of the bull, including its hide, meat, and dung, and burn it outside the camp as a sin offering.H1320H6499H5785H6569H8313H784H2351H4264H2403 15"Next Aaron and his sons must lay their hands on the head of one of the rams.H3947H259H352H175H1121H5564H3027H7218H352 16Then slaughter the ram, and splatter its blood against all sides of the altar.H7819H352H3947H1818H2236H5439H4196 17Cut the ram into pieces, and wash off the internal organs and the legs. Set them alongside the head and the other pieces of the body,H5408H352H5409H7364H7130H3767H5414H5409H7218 18then burn the entire animal on the altar. This is a burnt offering to the LORD; it is a pleasing aroma, a special gift presented to the LORD.H6999H352H4196H5930H3068H5207H7381H801H3068 19"Now take the other ram, and have Aaron and his sons lay their hands on its head.H3947H8145H352H175H1121H5564H3027H7218H352 20Then slaughter it, and apply some of its blood to the right earlobes of Aaron and his sons. Also put it on the thumbs of their right hands and the big toes of their right feet. Splatter the rest of the blood against all sides of the altar.H7819H352H3947H1818H5414H8571H241H175H8571H3233H241H1121H931H3233H3027H931H3233H7272H2236H1818H4196H5439 21Then take some of the blood from the altar and some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron and his sons and on their garments. In this way, they and their garments will be set apart as holy.H3947H1818H4196H4888H8081H5137H175H899H1121H899H1121H6942H899H1121H1121H899 22"Since this is the ram for the ordination of Aaron and his sons, take the fat of the ram, including the fat of the broad tail, the fat around the internal organs, the long lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and the fat around them, along with the right thigh.H3947H352H2459H451H2459H3680H7130H3508H3516H8147H3629H2459H3225H7785H352H4394 23Then take one round loaf of bread, one thin cake mixed with olive oil, and one wafer from the basket of bread without yeast that was placed in the LORD's presence.H259H3603H3899H259H2471H8081H259H7550H5536H4682H6440H3068 24Put all these in the hands of Aaron and his sons to be lifted up as a special offering to the LORD.H7760H3709H175H3709H1121H5130H8573H6440H3068 25Afterward take the various breads from their hands, and burn them on the altar along with the burnt offering. It is a pleasing aroma to the LORD, a special gift for him.H3947H3027H6999H4196H5930H5207H7381H6440H3068H801H3068 26Then take the breast of Aaron's ordination ram, and lift it up in the LORD's presence as a special offering to him. Then keep it as your own portion.H3947H2373H352H175H4394H5130H8573H6440H3068H4490 27"Set aside the portions of the ordination ram that belong to Aaron and his sons. This includes the breast and the thigh that were lifted up before the LORD as a special offering.H6942H2373H8573H7785H8641H5130H7311H352H4394H834H175H1121 28In the future, whenever the people of Israel lift up a peace offering, a portion of it must be set aside for Aaron and his descendants. This is their permanent right, and it is a sacred offering from the Israelites to the LORD.H175H1121H2706H5769H1121H3478H8641H8641H1121H3478H2077H8002H8641H3068 29"Aaron's sacred garments must be preserved for his descendants who succeed him, and they will wear them when they are anointed and ordained.H6944H899H175H1121H310H4888H4390H3027 30The descendant who succeeds him as high priest will wear these clothes for seven days as he ministers in the Tabernacle and the Holy Place.H1121H3548H3847H7651H3117H935H168H4150H8334H6944 31"Take the ram used in the ordination ceremony, and boil its meat in a sacred place.H3947H352H4394H1310H1320H6918H4725 32Then Aaron and his sons will eat this meat, along with the bread in the basket, at the Tabernacle entrance.H175H1121H398H1320H352H3899H5536H6607H168H4150 33They alone may eat the meat and bread used for their purification in the ordination ceremony. No one else may eat them, for these things are set apart and holy.H398H3722H4390H3027H6942H2114H398H6944 34If any of the ordination meat or bread remains until the morning, it must be burned. It may not be eaten, for it is holy.H1320H4394H3899H3498H1242H8313H3498H784H398H6944 35"This is how you will ordain Aaron and his sons to their offices, just as I have commanded you. The ordination ceremony will go on for seven days.H6213H175H1121H6680H7651H3117H4390H3027 36Each day you must sacrifice a young bull as a sin offering to purify them, making them right with the LORD. Afterward, cleanse the altar by purifying it; make it holy by anointing it with oil.H6213H3117H6499H2403H3725H2398H4196H3722H4886H6942 37Purify the altar, and consecrate it every day for seven days. After that, the altar will be absolutely holy, and whatever touches it will become holy.H7651H3117H3722H4196H6942H4196H6944H6944H5060H4196H6942 38"These are the sacrifices you are to offer regularly on the altar. Each day, offer two lambs that are a year old,H6213H4196H8147H3532H1121H8141H3117H3117H8548 39one in the morning and the other in the evening.H259H3532H6213H1242H8145H3532H6213H6153 40With one of them, offer two quarts of choice flour mixed with one quart of pure oil of pressed olives; also, offer one quart of wine as a liquid offering.H259H3532H6241H5560H1101H7253H1969H3795H8081H7243H1969H3196H5262 41Offer the other lamb in the evening, along with the same offerings of flour and wine as in the morning. It will be a pleasing aroma, a special gift presented to the LORD.H8145H3532H6213H6153H6213H4503H1242H5262H5207H7381H801H3068 42"These burnt offerings are to be made each day from generation to generation. Offer them in the LORD's presence at the Tabernacle entrance; there I will meet with you and speak with you.H8548H5930H1755H6607H168H4150H6440H3068H3259H1696 43I will meet the people of Israel there, in the place made holy by my glorious presence.H3259H1121H3478H6942H3519 44Yes, I will consecrate the Tabernacle and the altar, and I will consecrate Aaron and his sons to serve me as priests.H6942H168H4150H4196H6942H175H1121H3547 45Then I will live among the people of Israel and be their God,H7931H8432H1121H3478H430 46and they will know that I am the LORD their God. I am the one who brought them out of the land of Egypt so that I could live among them. I am the LORD their God.H3045H3068H430H3318H776H4714H7931H8432H3068H430
