may be used in any other use : but ye shall in no wise eat

35 of it. For whosoever eateth the fat of the beast, of which

men offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord, even the

26 soul that eateth [it] shall be cut off from his people. Moreover ye shall eat no manner of blood, [whether it be] of fowl

27 or of beast, in any of your dwellings. Whatsoever soul [it be] that eateth any manner of blood, even that soul shall be cut off from his people.

28 29 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the.children of Israel, saying, He that offereth the sacrifice of his peace offerings unto the Lor D, that portion which was given out ofldsfieace offerings, shall bring his oblation to the taberna

30 ele unto the Lord of the sacrifice of his peace offerings. His own hands shall bring the offerings of the Lord made by fire, the fat with the breast, it shall he bring, that the breast may

31 be waved [for] a wave offering before the Lord. And the priest shall burn the fat upon the altar : but the breast shall

32 be Aaron's and his sons'. And the right shoulder shall ye give unto the priest [for] an heave offering of the sacrifices

% 33 of your peace offerings. He among the sons of Aaron, that offereth the blood of the peace offerings, and the fat, shall

34 have the right shoulder for [his] part. For the wave breast and the heave shoulder have I taken of the children of Israel from off the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them unto Aaron the priest and unto his sons by a statute for

35 ever from among the children of Israel. This [is the portion] of the anointing of Aaron, or, which he had by reason of hi« anointing, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the Lord made by ñre, in the day [when] he presented them to minister unto the Lord in the priest's office, from

36 that day forward for ever; Which the 1.01; D commaded to be given them of the children of Israel, in the day that he anointed them, [by] a statute for ever throughout their generations.

37 This [is] the law of the burnt offering, of the meat offering, and of the sin offering, and of the trespass offering, and of the consecrations, and of the sacrifice of the peace offerings;

38 Which the Lord commanded Moses in mount Sinai, in the day that he commanded the children of Israel to offer their oblations unto the Lord, in the wilderness of Sinai.

CHAP. IX.

Contains an account of Aaron's sin offering .and burnt offering for himself and the fieofile; the fieofile blessed; and of the Jire from heaven consuming the burnt offering.

1 Л N D it came to pass on the eighth day, [that] Moses /~V called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;

2 And he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer [them] before the Lord, to make atonement for thy

3 self and the fieofile, (т>. 7.) And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak, saying, Take ye a kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, [both] of the first year, •without blemish, for a burnt offering for the fieofile; (т>. Is.)

4 Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the Lord : and a meat offering mingled-with oil: for today the Lord will appear unto you, in a glorious manner, (v.

5 6, 24.) And they brought [that] which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near and stood before the Lord, at the door of

6 the tabernacle, where the glory of the Lord appeared. And Moses said, This [is] the thing which the Lord commanded that ye should do: and the glory of the Lord, the gloriou» manifestation of God's fio-merful and gracious presence, (т>. 24.)

7 shall appear unto you. And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy sin offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for thyself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and make an atone-, ment for them ; as the Lord commanded.

8 Aaron therefore went unto the altar, and slew the calf of

9 the sin offering, which [was^ for himself. And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put [it] upon the horns of the altar, and

10 poured oirt the blood at the bottom of the altar: But the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of the sin offering,- he burnt upon the altar; as the Lord commanded Mo

11 ses. And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without

12 the camp. And he slew the burnt offering; and Aaron's eons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled round

13 about upon the altar. And they presented the burnt offer» ing unto him, with the pieces thereof, and the head: and he

14 burnt [them] upon the altar. And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt [them] upon the burnt offering on

15 the altar. And he brought the people's offering, and took the goat, which [was] the sin offering for the people, and slew it,

16 and offered it for sin, as the first. And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it according to the manner, or ordinance.

17 And he brought the meat offering, and took an handful thereof and burnt [it] upon the altar, beside the burnt sacrifice of

18 the morning. He slew also the bullock and the ram [for] a sacrifice of peace offerings, which [was] for the people: and Aaron's sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprink

19 led upon the altar round about. And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump, and that which covereth [the in

20 wards,] and the kidneys, and the caul [above] the liver: And they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fet upon

21 the altar: And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved [for] a wave offering before the Lord ; as Moses

22 commanded. And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the pe6plc, and blessed them ; he prayed to God for his blessing upon them, and particularly for his gracious acceptance of these and all succeeding sacrifices; and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and peace offerings.

23 And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people a second time: and the glory of the Lord, an extraordinary splendor, or brightness, appearing out of the cloudy pillar, (as Exodus

xvi. 10,) appeared unto all the people, wlnch was a token of

24 God's gracious acceptance of them and their services. And there came a fire, which 'was to be carefully kept, and not suffered to be extinguished, out from before the Lord, from the holy of holies, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat, in token of his approbation of the priesthood now instituted, and the sacrifices no'ui offered; [which] when all the people saw, they shouted and fell on their faces, wondering at, rejoicing in, and blessing God for this extraordinary and gracious discovery <f himself, and his favour therein. See Gen.

xvii, 3.
