The Priestly Ministry Begins

1It came to pass on the eighth day that Moses called Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel,
  2and he said to Aaron, “Take a calf from the herd for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before Yahweh.
  3You are to speak to the children of Israel, saying, ‘Take a male goat for a sin offering, and a calf and a lamb, both a year old, without blemish, for a burnt offering;
  4and a bull and a ram for peace offerings to sacrifice before Yahweh, and a grain offering mixed with oil; for today Yahweh appears to you.’”

5They brought what Moses commanded before the Tent of Meeting, and all the congregation drew near and stood before Yahweh.
  6Moses said, “This is the thing that Yahweh commanded you to do, that the glory of Yahweh may appear to you.”
  7Moses said to Aaron, “Draw near to the altar and offer your sin offering and your burnt offering, and make atonement for yourself and for the people; and offer the approach offering for the people and make atonement for them, as Yahweh commanded.”

8So Aaron drew near to the altar and killed the calf of the sin offering that was for himself.
  9The sons of Aaron presented the blood to him, and he dipped his finger in the blood and put it on the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the base of the altar;
  10but the fat and the kidneys and the cover from the liver of the sin offering he burned into smoke upon the altar, as Yahweh commanded Moses.
  11But the flesh and the skin he burned with fire outside the camp.

12He killed the burnt offering, and Aaron’s sons handed the blood to him and he sprinkled it around on the altar.
  13They handed the burnt offering to him, piece by piece, and the head, and he burned them into smoke upon the altar.
  14He washed the innards and the legs and burned them into smoke on the burnt offering on the altar.

15He presented the people’s approach offering and took the goat that was the sin offering for the people and killed it and offered it for sin, like the first.
  16He presented the burnt offering and offered it according to the ordinance.
  17He presented the grain offering and filled his hand from there and burn it into smoke upon the altar, in addition to the morning burnt offering.

18He also killed the bull and the ram, the sacrifice of peace offerings that was for the people; and Aaron’s sons handed to him the blood that he sprinkled around on the altar,
  19and the fat of the bull and of the ram, the fat tail and what covers the innards, and the kidneys and the cover of the liver;
  20and they put the fat upon the breasts and he burned the fat into smoke on the altar,
  21and the breasts and the right thigh Aaron waved for a wave offering before Yahweh, as Moses commanded.

22Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people and blessed them; and he came down from offering the sin offering and the burnt offering and the peace offerings.
  23Moses and Aaron went into the Tent of Meeting and came out and blessed the people, and the glory of Yahweh appeared to all the people.
  24Then fire came out from before Yahweh, and consumed the burnt offering and the fat upon the altar; and when all the people saw it they shouted and fell on their faces.
