The Consecration of Aaron and His Sons

8 1  And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying, 2  'Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and the bullock of the sin-offering, and the two rams, and the basket of unleavened things, 3  and all the company assemble thou unto the opening of the tent of meeting.' 4  And Moses doth as Jehovah hath commanded him, and the company is assembled unto the opening of the tent of meeting, 5  and Moses saith unto the company, 'This 'is' the thing which Jehovah hath commanded to do.' 6  And Moses bringeth near Aaron and his sons, and doth bathe them with water, 7  and doth put on him the coat, and doth gird him with the girdle, and doth clothe him with the upper robe, and doth put on him the ephod, and doth gird him with the girdle of the ephod, and doth bind 'it' to him with it, 8  and doth put on him the breastplate, and doth put unto the breastplate the Lights and the Perfections, 9  and doth put the mitre on his head, and doth put on the mitre, over-against its front, the golden flower of the holy crown, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses. 10  And Moses taketh the anointing oil, and anointeth the tabernacle, and all that 'is' in it, and sanctifieth them; 11  and he sprinkleth of it on the altar seven times, and anointeth the altar, and all its vessels, and the laver, and its base, to sanctify them; 12  and he poureth of the anointing oil on the head of Aaron, and anointeth him to sanctify him. 13  And Moses bringeth near the sons of Aaron, and doth clothe them 'with' coats, and girdeth them 'with' girdles, and bindeth for them turbans, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses.

14  And he bringeth nigh the bullock of the sin-offering, and Aaron layeth—his sons also—their hands on the head of the bullock of the sin-offering, 15  and 'one' slaughtereth, and Moses taketh the blood, and putteth on the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and cleanseth the altar, and the blood he hath poured out at the foundation of the altar, and sanctifieth it, to make atonement upon it. 16  And he taketh all the fat that 'is' on the inwards, and the redundance above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and Moses maketh Perfume on the altar, 17  and the bullock, and its skin, and its flesh, and its dung, he hath burnt with fire, at the outside of the camp, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses. 18  And he bringeth near the ram of the burnt-offering, and Aaron and his sons lay their hands on the head of the ram, 19  and 'one' slaughtereth, and Moses sprinkleth the blood on the altar round about; 20  and the ram he hath cut into its pieces, and Moses maketh perfume with the head, and the pieces, and the fat, 21  and the inwards and the legs he hath washed with water, and Moses maketh perfume with the whole ram on the altar; it 'is' a burnt-offering, for sweet fragrance; it 'is' a fire-offering to Jehovah, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses. 22  And he bringeth near the second ram, a ram of the consecrations, and Aaron and his sons lay their hands on the head of the ram, 23  and 'one' slaughtereth, and Moses taketh of its blood, and putteth on the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the great toe of his right foot; 24  and he bringeth near the sons of Aaron, and Moses putteth of the blood on the tip of their right ear, and on the thumb of their right hand, and on the great toe of their right foot. And Moses sprinkleth the blood on the altar round about, 25  and taketh the fat, and the fat tail, and all the fat that 'is' on the inwards, and the redundance above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right leg; 26  and out of the basket of unleavened things, which 'is' before Jehovah, he hath taken one unleavened cake, and one cake of oiled bread, and one thin cake, and putteth 'them' on the fat, and on the right leg; 27  and putteth the whole on the hands of Aaron, and on the hands of his sons, and waveth them—a wave-offering before Jehovah. 28  And Moses taketh them from off their hands, and maketh perfume on the altar, on the burnt-offering, they 'are' consecrations for sweet fragrance; it 'is' a fire-offering to Jehovah; 29  and Moses taketh the breast, and waveth it—a wave-offering before Jehovah; of the ram of the consecrations it hath been to Moses for a portion, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses. 30  And Moses taketh of the anointing oil, and of the blood which 'is' on the altar, and sprinkleth on Aaron, on his garments, and on his sons, and on the garments of his sons with him, and he sanctifieth Aaron, his garments, and his sons, and the garments of his sons with him.

31  And Moses saith unto Aaron, and unto his sons, 'Boil ye the flesh at the opening of the tent of meeting, and there ye do eat it and the bread which 'is' in the basket of the consecrations, as I have commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons do eat it. 32  'And the remnant of the flesh and of the bread with fire ye burn; 33  and from the opening of the tent of meeting ye go not out seven days, till the day of the fulness, the days of your consecration—for seven days he doth consecrate your hand; 34  as he hath done on this day, Jehovah hath commanded to do, to make atonement for you; 35  and at the opening of the tent of meeting ye abide, by day and by night seven days, and ye have kept the charge of Jehovah, and die not, for so I have been commanded.' 36  And Aaron doth—his sons also—all the things which Jehovah hath commanded by the hand of Moses.

Aaron Offers Sacrifices

9 1  And it cometh to pass on the eighth day, Moses hath called for Aaron and for his sons, and for the elders of Israel, 2  and he saith unto Aaron, 'Take to thyself a calf, a son of the herd, for a sin-offering, and a ram for a burnt-offering, perfect ones, and bring near before Jehovah. 3  'And unto the sons of Israel thou dost speak, saying, Take ye a kid of the goats for a sin-offering, and a calf, and a lamb, sons of a year, perfect ones, for a burnt-offering, 4  and a bullock and a ram for peace-offerings, to sacrifice before Jehovah, and a present mixed with oil; for to-day Jehovah hath appeared unto you.' 5  And they take that which Moses hath commanded unto the front of the tent of meeting, and all the company draw near and stand before Jehovah; 6  and Moses saith, 'This 'is' the thing which Jehovah hath commanded; do 'it', and the honour of Jehovah doth appear unto you.' 7  And Moses saith unto Aaron, 'Draw near unto the altar, and make thy sin-offering, and thy burnt-offering, and make atonement for thyself, and for the people, and make the offering of the people, and make atonement for them, as Jehovah hath commanded.'

8  And Aaron draweth near unto the altar, and slaughtereth the calf of the sin-offering, which 'is' for himself; 9  and the sons of Aaron bring the blood near unto him, and he dippeth his finger in the blood, and putteth 'it' on the horns of the altar, and the blood he hath poured out at the foundation of the altar; 10  and the fat, and the kidneys, and the redundance of the liver, of the sin-offering, he hath made a perfume on the altar, as Jehovah hath commanded Moses; 11  and the flesh and the skin he hath burnt with fire, at the outside of the camp. 12  And he slaughtereth the burnt-offering, and the sons of Aaron have presented unto him the blood, and he sprinkleth it on the altar round about; 13  and the burnt-offering they have presented unto him, by its pieces, and the head, and he maketh perfume on the altar; 14  and he washeth the inwards and the legs, and maketh perfume for the burnt-offering on the altar. 15  And he bringeth near the offering of the people, and taketh the goat of the sin-offering which 'is' for the people, and slaughtered it, and maketh it a sin-offering, like the first; 16  and he bringeth near the burnt-offering, and maketh it, according to the ordinance; 17  and he bringeth near the present, and filleth his palm with it, and maketh perfume on the altar, apart from the burnt-offering of the morning. 18  And he slaughtereth the bullock and the ram, a sacrifice of the peace-offerings, which 'are' for the people, and sons of Aaron present the blood unto him (and he sprinkleth it on the altar round about), 19  and the fat of the bullock, and of the ram, the fat tail, and the covering 'of the inwards', and the kidneys, and the redundance above the liver, 20  and they set the fat on the breasts, and he maketh perfume with the fat on the altar; 21  and the breasts, and the right leg hath Aaron waved—a wave-offering before Jehovah, as He hath commanded Moses. 22  And Aaron lifteth up his hand towards the people, and blesseth them, and cometh down from making the sin-offering, and the burnt-offering, and the peace-offerings.

23  And Moses goeth in—Aaron also—unto the tent of meeting, and they come out, and bless the people, and the honour of Jehovah appeareth unto all the people; 24  and fire cometh out from before Jehovah, and consumeth on the altar the burnt-offering, and the fat; and all the people see, and cry aloud, and fall on their faces.

The Sin of Nadab and Abihu

10 1  And the sons of Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, take each his censer, and put in them fire, and put on it perfume, and bring near before Jehovah strange fire, which He hath not commanded them; 2  and fire goeth out from before Jehovah, and consumeth them, and they die before Jehovah.

3  And Moses saith unto Aaron, 'It 'is' that which Jehovah hath spoken, saying, By those drawing near to Me I am sanctified, and in the face of all the people I am honoured;' and Aaron is silent. 4  And Moses calleth unto Mishael and unto Elzaphan, sons of Uzziel, uncle of Aaron, and saith unto them, 'Come near, bear your brethren from the front of the sanctuary unto the outside of the camp;' 5  and they come near, and bear them in their coats unto the outside of the camp, as Moses hath spoken. 6  And Moses saith unto Aaron, and to Eleazar, and to Ithamar his sons, 'Your heads ye do not uncover, and your garments ye do not rend, that ye die not, and on all the company He be wroth; as to your brethren, the whole house of Israel, they bewail the burning which Jehovah hath kindled; 7  and from the opening of the tent of meeting ye do not go out, lest ye die, for the anointing oil of Jehovah 'is' upon you;' and they do according to the word of Moses.

8  And Jehovah speaketh unto Aaron, saying, 9  'Wine and strong drink thou dost not drink, thou, and thy sons with thee, in your going in unto the tent of meeting, and ye die not—a statute age-during to your generations; 10  so as to make a separation between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the pure; 11  and to teach the sons of Israel all the statutes which Jehovah hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.'

12  And Moses speaketh unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar, and unto Ithamar his sons, who are left, 'Take ye the present that is left from the fire-offerings of Jehovah, and eat it unleavened near the altar, for it 'is' most holy, 13  and ye have eaten it in the holy place, for it 'is' thy portion, and the portion of thy sons, from the fire-offerings of Jehovah; for so I have been commanded. 14  'And the breast of the wave-offering, and the leg of the heave-offering, ye do eat in a clean place, thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee; for thy portion and the portion of thy sons they have been given, out of the sacrifices of peace-offerings of the sons of Israel; 15  the leg of the heave-offering, and breast of the wave-offering, besides fire-offerings of the fat, they do bring in to wave a wave-offering before Jehovah, and it hath been to thee, and to thy sons with thee, by a statute age-during, as Jehovah hath commanded.' 16  And the goat of the sin-offering hath Moses diligently sought, and lo, it is burnt, and he is wroth against Eleazar, and against Ithamar, sons of Aaron, who are left, saying, 17  'Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin-offering in the holy place, for it 'is' most holy—and it He hath given to you to take away the iniquity of the company, to make atonement for them before Jehovah? 18  lo, its blood hath not been brought in unto the holy place within; eating ye do eat it in the holy place, as I have commanded.' 19  And Aaron speaketh unto Moses, 'Lo, to-day they have brought near their sin-offering and their burnt-offering before Jehovah; and 'things' like these meet me, yet I have eaten a sin-offering to-day; is it good in the eyes of Jehovah?' 20  And Moses hearkeneth, and it is good in his eyes.
