11 hands upon the head of the bullock. And thou shalt kill the bullock before the Lord, [by] the door of the tabernacle of
12 the congregation. And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put [it] upon the horns of the altar with thy finger, that is, the brazen altar of burnt offerings, to sanctify the altar itself, that it might be Jit afterward to sanctify the »acrißces of the fieofile, and pour all the rest of the blood beside
13 the bottom of the altar. And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul [that is] above the liver, firobably the midriff,* and the two kidneys, and the fat that [is]
14 upon them, and burn [them] upon the altar. But the flesh of the bullock, and his skin, and his dung, shalt thou burn
15 with fire without the camp : it [is] a sin offering. Thou shalt also take one ram: and Aaron and his sons shall put their
16 hands upon the head of the ram. And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his blood, and sprinkle [it] round about
17 upon the altar. And thou shall cut the ram in pieces, and wash the inwards of him, and his legs, and put [them] unto

20 Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put [it] upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of llieir right foot, and sprinkle
21 the blood upon the altar round about. And they shall take of the blood that [is] upon the altar, and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle [il] upon Aaron and upon his garments, and vipon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him: and he shall be hallowed, and his garments, and his sons, and

and the caul [above] the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that [is] upon them, and the right shoulder; for it [is] a
23 ram of consecration, of the priest in his office: And one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that [is] before the Lord:
S4 And thou shalt put all in the hands of Aaron, and in the hands of his sons ; and shalt wave them [for] a wave offering before
25 the Lord. And thou shalt receive them of their hands, and burn [them] upon the altar for a burnt offering, for a sweet savour before the Lord: it [is] an offering made by fire unto the Lord.
26 And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of Aaron's consecration, and wave it [for] a wave offering before the Lord: and it shall be thy part. That 'which was afterward given to" the priests (v. 28. Lev. vii. 34,) is here assigned to Moses,
27 because he now executed the priest's office. And thou shalt sanctify the breast of the wave offering, and the shoulder of the heave offering, which is waved, and which is heaved up of the ram of the consecration, [even] of [that] which [is] for Aaron, and of [that] which is for his sons: this was done by throwing the parts up, and catching them again, to denote, their giving these things to God, and then receiving them again from
28 him as their portion: And it shall be Aaron's and his sons' by a statute for ever from the children of Israel: for it [is] an heave offering : and it shall be an heave offering from the children of Israel of the sacrifice of their peace offering,
29 [even] their heave offering unto the Lord. And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons after him, to be anointed
30 therein, and to be consecrated in them. [And] that son that is priest in his stead shall put them on seven days, when he cometh into the tabernacle of the congregation to minister in the holy [place.].
St And thou shalt take the ram of the consecration, and seethe
32 his flesh in the holy place. And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the bread that [is] in the basket, [by] the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
33 And they shall eat those things wherewith the atonement was made,to consecrate [and] to sanctify them: butastrangcr
34 shall not eat [thereof ] because they [are] holy. And if aught of the flesh of the consecrations, or of the bread, remain unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder with fire:
35 it shall not be eaten, because it [is] holy. And thus shalt thou do unto Aaren, and to his sons, according to all [things] which I have commanded thee: seven days shalt thou conse
36 crate them. And thou shalt offer every day a bullock [for] a sin offering for atonement: and thou shah cleanse the altar, when thou hast made an atonement for it, and thou shalt
37 anoint it, to sanctify it. Seven days thou shalt make ad atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy: whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy.
38 Now this [is that] which thou shalt offer upon the altar;
39 two lambs of the first year day by day continually. The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, about three o'clock in the afternoon:
40 And with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil ; and the fourth part
41 of an hin of wine [for] a drink offering. And the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, and shalt do thereto according to the meat offering of the morning, and according to the drink offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an offering made by fire
42 unto the Lord. [This shall be] a continual burnt offering throughout your generations [at] the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the Lord: where I will meet you, and to speak there unto thee.
43 And there I will meet with the children of Israel, and [the
44 tabernacle] shall be sanctified by my glory. And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron and his sons, to minister to me
45 in the priest's office. And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and will be their God, by special covenant, and the manifold evidences of my favour toward them above all others.
46 And they shall know that I [am] the Lord their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I [am] the Lord their God.

3 And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, the top thereof, and the sides thereof round about, and the horns thereof; and thou shalt make unto it a crown or rim of gold round about, which served to keep the coals and incense from falling off.
4 And two golden rings shalt thou make to it under the crown of it, by the two corners thereof, upon the two sides of it shalt thou make [it;] and they shall be for places for the
5 staves to bear it withal. And thou shalt make the staves
6 [of] shittim wood, and overlay them with gold. And thou
shalt put it before the veil that [is] by the ark of the testimony, before the mercy seat that [is] ever the testimony, where I will meet with thee.
7 And Aaron shall burn thereon sweet incense every morning : when he dresseth the lamps, he shallburn incense upon it: fie ivas to do t/tia the first time, but afterward any Driest might do
• it. And when Aaron lighteth the lamps at even, he shall burn incense upon it, a perpetual incense before the Lord
9 throughout your generations. Ye shall offer no strange incense thereon, nor burnt sacrifice, nor meat offering; neither
10 shall ye pour drink offering thereon. And Aaron shall make an atonement upon the horns of it once in a year, on the day of reconciliation, (Lev. xvi. 18, 29, 30, Numb. xxix. 7 :) with the blood of the sin offering of atonements: once in the year shall he make atonement upon it throughout your generations: it [is] most holy unto the Lord.
11 12 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto the Lord, when thou numberest them, a certain firice for the redemfition of their lives; -whereby they acknowledged God's right over their lives, that they had forfeited them by their sins, and that it чиаа his mercy to continue them ; that there be no plague
13 among them, when [thou] numberest them. This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary, about fourteen fience: (a shekel [is] twenty gerahs :) an half shekel
14 [shall be] the offering of the Lord. Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from twenty years old and
15 above, shall give an offering unto the Lord. The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when [they] give an offering unto the Lord, to make an atonement for your souls: to denote that all are redeemed by the same /trice, and that there is no resfiect of persons with
1 б God. And thou shall take the atonement money of the children of Israel, and shalt appoint it for the service of the tabernacle of the congregation, for the building and furniture of it, and for maintaining God's worship, there; that it may be a memorial unto the children of Israel before the Lord, to make an atonement for your souls.
17 18 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Thou shalt also make a laver [of] brass, and his foot [also of] brass, to wash [withal :] and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, and thou shalt put water
19 therein. For Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and
20 their feet thereat: When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offer
21 ing made by fire unto the Lord: So they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, [even] to him and to his seed throughout their generations.
22 23 Moreover, the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Take thou alsounto thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred [shekels,] and of sweet cinnamon half so much, [even] two hundred and fifty [shekels.] and of sweet calamus two hun
24 dred and fifty [shekels,] And of cassia five hundred [shekels,] after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin, about
15 three quarts: And thou shalt make it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the apothecary: it
26 shall be an holy anointing oil. And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the congregation therewith, and the ark of the
27 testimony, And the table and all his vessels, and the candlestick
28 and his vessels, and the altar of incense, And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels, and the laver and his foot.
29 And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most holy: SO whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy. And thou shalt
anoint Aaron, and his sons, and consecrate them, that [they]
31 may minister unto mc in the priest's office. And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, This shall be an holy anointing oil unto me throughout your generations.
32 Upon man's flesh shall it not be poured, neither shall ye make [any other] like it, after the composition of it: it [is] holy,
32 [and] it shall be holy unto you. Whosoever compoundeth [any] like it, or whosoever putteth [any] of it upon a stranger, shall even be cut off from his people.
34 And the Lord said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and galbanum; [these] sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each there shall be a like [weight:]
35 And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art
36 of the apothecary, tempered together, pure [and] holy: And thou shalt beat [some] of it very small, and put of it before the testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where
27 I will meet with thee : it shall be unto you most holy. And [as for] the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall not make to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it
38 shall be unto thee holy for the Lord. Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereto, shall even be cut off from his people.
