The Priests Begin Their Work

9After the ordination ceremony, on the eighth day, Moses called together Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel.H8066H3117H4872H7121H175H1121H2205H3478 2He said to Aaron, "Take a young bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering, both without defects, and present them to the LORD.H559H175H3947H1241H1121H5695H2403H352H5930H8549H7126H6440H3068 3Then tell the Israelites, 'Take a male goat for a sin offering, and take a calf and a lamb, both a year old and without defects, for a burnt offering.H1121H3478H1696H559H3947H8163H5795H2403H5695H3532H1121H8141H8549H5930 4Also take a bull and a ram for a peace offering and flour moistened with olive oil for a grain offering. Present all these offerings to the LORD because the LORD will appear to you today.'"H7794H352H8002H2076H6440H3068H4503H1101H8081H3117H3068H7200 5So the people presented all these things at the entrance of the Tabernacle, just as Moses had commanded. Then the whole community came forward and stood before the LORD.H3947H4872H6680H6440H168H4150H5712H7126H5975H6440H3068 6And Moses said, "This is what the LORD has commanded you to do so that the glory of the LORD may appear to you."H4872H559H1697H3068H6680H6213H3519H3068H7200 7Then Moses said to Aaron, "Come to the altar and sacrifice your sin offering and your burnt offering to purify yourself and the people. Then present the offerings of the people to purify them, making them right with the LORD, just as he has commanded."H4872H559H175H7126H4196H6213H2403H5930H3722H5971H6213H7133H5971H3722H3068H6680 8So Aaron went to the altar and slaughtered the calf as a sin offering for himself.H175H7126H4196H7819H5695H2403 9His sons brought him the blood, and he dipped his finger in it and put it on the horns of the altar. He poured out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar.H1121H175H7126H1818H2881H676H1818H5414H7161H4196H3332H1818H3247H4196 10Then he burned on the altar the fat, the kidneys, and the long lobe of the liver from the sin offering, just as the LORD had commanded Moses.H2459H3629H3508H4480H3516H2403H6999H4196H3068H6680H4872 11The meat and the hide, however, he burned outside the camp.H1320H5785H8313H784H2351H4264 12Next Aaron slaughtered the animal for the burnt offering. His sons brought him the blood, and he splattered it against all sides of the altar.H7819H5930H175H1121H4672H1818H2236H5439H4196 13Then they handed him each piece of the burnt offering, including the head, and he burned them on the altar.H4672H5930H5409H7218H6999H4196 14Then he washed the internal organs and the legs and burned them on the altar along with the rest of the burnt offering.H7364H7130H3767H6999H5930H4196 15Next Aaron presented the offerings of the people. He slaughtered the people's goat and presented it as an offering for their sin, just as he had first done with the offering for his own sin.H7126H5971H7133H3947H8163H2403H5971H7819H2398H7223 16Then he presented the burnt offering and sacrificed it in the prescribed way.H7126H5930H6213H4941 17He also presented the grain offering, burning a handful of the flour mixture on the altar, in addition to the regular burnt offering for the morning.H7126H4503H4390H3709H6999H4196H905H5930H1242 18Then Aaron slaughtered the bull and the ram for the people's peace offering. His sons brought him the blood, and he splattered it against all sides of the altar.H7819H7794H352H2077H8002H5971H175H1121H4672H1818H2236H4196H5439 19Then he took the fat of the bull and the ram—the fat of the broad tail and from around the internal organs—along with the kidneys and the long lobes of the livers.H2459H7794H352H451H4374H3629H3508H3516 20He placed these fat portions on top of the breasts of these animals and burned them on the altar.H7760H2459H2373H6999H2459H4196 21Aaron then lifted up the breasts and right thighs as a special offering to the LORD, just as Moses had commanded.H2373H3225H7785H175H5130H8573H6440H3068H4872H6680 22After that, Aaron raised his hands toward the people and blessed them. Then, after presenting the sin offering, the burnt offering, and the peace offering, he stepped down from the altar.H175H5375H3027H5971H1288H3381H6213H2403H5930H8002 23Then Moses and Aaron went into the Tabernacle, and when they came back out, they blessed the people again, and the glory of the LORD appeared to the whole community.H4872H175H935H168H4150H3318H1288H5971H3519H3068H7200H5971 24Fire blazed forth from the LORD's presence and consumed the burnt offering and the fat on the altar. When the people saw this, they shouted with joy and fell face down on the ground.H3318H784H6440H3068H398H4196H5930H2459H5971H7200H7442H5307H6440
