Ordination of the Priests

8Then the LORD said to Moses,H3068H1696H4872H559 2"Bring Aaron and his sons, along with their sacred garments, the anointing oil, the bull for the sin offering, the two rams, and the basket of bread made without yeast,H3947H175H1121H899H4888H8081H6499H2403H8147H352H5536H4682 3and call the entire community of Israel together at the entrance of the Tabernacle."H6950H5712H6950H6607H168H4150 4So Moses followed the LORD's instructions, and the whole community assembled at the Tabernacle entrance.H4872H6213H3068H6680H5712H6950H6607H168H4150 5Moses announced to them, "This is what the LORD has commanded us to do!"H4872H559H5712H1697H3068H6680H6213 6Then he presented Aaron and his sons and washed them with water.H4872H7126H175H1121H7364H4325 7He put the official tunic on Aaron and tied the sash around his waist. He dressed him in the robe, placed the ephod on him, and attached the ephod securely with its decorative sash.H5414H3801H2296H73H3847H4598H5414H646H2296H2805H646H640 8Then Moses placed the chestpiece on Aaron and put the Urim and the Thummim inside it.H7760H2833H5414H2833H224H8550 9He placed the turban on Aaron's head and attached the gold medallion—the badge of holiness—to the front of the turban, just as the LORD had commanded him.H7760H4701H7218H4701H6440H4136H7760H2091H6731H6944H5145H3068H6680H4872 10Then Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the Tabernacle and everything in it, making them holy.H4872H3947H4888H8081H4886H4908H6942 11He sprinkled the oil on the altar seven times, anointing it and all its utensils, as well as the washbasin and its stand, making them holy.H5137H4196H7651H6471H4886H4196H3627H3595H3653H6942 12Then he poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron's head, anointing him and making him holy for his work.H3332H4888H8081H175H7218H4886H6942 13Next Moses presented Aaron's sons. He clothed them in their tunics, tied their sashes around them, and put their special head coverings on them, just as the LORD had commanded him.H4872H7126H175H1121H3847H3801H2296H73H2280H4021H3068H6680H4872 14Then Moses presented the bull for the sin offering. Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the bull's head,H5066H6499H2403H175H1121H5564H3027H7218H6499H2403 15and Moses slaughtered it. Moses took some of the blood, and with his finger he put it on the four horns of the altar to purify it. He poured out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar. Through this process, he made the altar holy by purifying it.H7819H4872H3947H1818H5414H7161H4196H5439H676H2398H4196H3332H1818H3247H4196H6942H3722 16Then Moses took all the fat around the internal organs, the long lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and the fat around them, and he burned it all on the altar.H3947H2459H7130H3508H3516H8147H3629H2459H4872H6999H4196 17He took the rest of the bull, including its hide, meat, and dung, and burned it on a fire outside the camp, just as the LORD had commanded him.H6499H5785H1320H6569H8313H784H2351H4264H3068H6680H4872 18Then Moses presented the ram for the burnt offering. Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the ram's head,H7126H352H5930H175H1121H5564H3027H7218H352 19and Moses slaughtered it. Then Moses took the ram's blood and splattered it against all sides of the altar.H7819H4872H2236H1818H4196H5439 20Then he cut the ram into pieces, and he burned the head, some of its pieces, and the fat on the altar.H5408H352H5409H4872H6999H7218H5409H6309 21After washing the internal organs and the legs with water, Moses burned the entire ram on the altar as a burnt offering. It was a pleasing aroma, a special gift presented to the LORD, just as the LORD had commanded him.H7364H7130H3767H4325H4872H6999H352H4196H5930H5207H7381H801H3068H3068H6680H4872 22Then Moses presented the other ram, which was the ram of ordination. Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the ram's head,H7126H8145H352H352H4394H175H1121H5564H3027H7218H352 23and Moses slaughtered it. Then Moses took some of its blood and applied it to the lobe of Aaron's right ear, the thumb of his right hand, and the big toe of his right foot.H7819H4872H3947H1818H5414H8571H175H3233H241H931H3233H3027H931H3233H7272 24Next Moses presented Aaron's sons and applied some of the blood to the lobes of their right ears, the thumbs of their right hands, and the big toes of their right feet. He then splattered the rest of the blood against all sides of the altar.H7126H175H1121H4872H5414H1818H8571H3233H241H931H3233H3027H931H3233H7272H4872H2236H1818H4196H5439 25Next Moses took the fat, 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.H3947H2459H451H2459H7130H3508H3516H8147H3629H2459H3225H7785 26On top of these he placed a thin cake of bread made without yeast, a cake of bread mixed with olive oil, and a wafer spread with olive oil. All these were taken from the basket of bread made without yeast that was placed in the LORD's presence.H5536H4682H3899H6440H3068H3947H259H4682H2471H2471H8081H259H7550H7760H2459H3225H7785 27He put all these in the hands of Aaron and his sons, and he lifted them up as a special offering to the LORD.H5414H175H3709H1121H3709H5130H8573H6440H3068 28Moses then took all the offerings back from them and burned them on the altar on top of the burnt offering. This was the ordination offering. It was a pleasing aroma, a special gift presented to the LORD.H4872H3947H3709H6999H4196H5930H4394H5207H7381H801H3068 29Then Moses took the breast and lifted it up as a special offering to the LORD. This was Moses' portion of the ram of ordination, just as the LORD had commanded him.H4872H3947H2373H5130H8573H6440H3068H352H4394H4872H4490H3068H6680H4872 30Next Moses took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood that was on the altar, and he sprinkled them on Aaron and his garments and on his sons and their garments. In this way, he made Aaron and his sons and their garments holy.H4872H3947H4888H8081H1818H4196H5137H175H899H1121H1121H899H6942H175H899H1121H1121H899 31Then Moses said to Aaron and his sons, "Boil the remaining meat of the offerings at the Tabernacle entrance, and eat it there, along with the bread that is in the basket of offerings for the ordination, just as I commanded when I said, 'Aaron and his sons will eat it.'H4872H559H175H1121H1310H1320H6607H168H4150H398H3899H5536H4394H6680H559H175H1121H398 32Any meat or bread that is left over must then be burned up.H3498H1320H3899H8313H784 33You must not leave the Tabernacle entrance for seven days, for that is when the ordination ceremony will be completed.H3318H6607H168H4150H7651H3117H3117H4394H4390H7651H3117H4390H3027 34Everything we have done today was commanded by the LORD in order to purify you, making you right with him.H6213H3117H3068H6680H6213H3722 35Now stay at the entrance of the Tabernacle day and night for seven days, and do everything the LORD requires. If you fail to do this, you will die, for this is what the LORD has commanded."H3427H6607H168H4150H3119H3915H7651H3117H8104H4931H3068H4191H6680 36So Aaron and his sons did everything the LORD had commanded through Moses.H175H1121H6213H1697H3068H6680H3027H4872
