may be used in any other use : but ye shall in no wise eat 25 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. More

over 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 Lord, that portion which was given

out of his peace offerings, shall bring his oblation to the taberna30 cle 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 por

tion] of the anointing of Aaron, or, which he had by reason of his anointing, and of the anointing of his sons, out of the offerings of the LORD made by fire, in the day (when) he present

ed them to minister unto the Lord in the priest's office, from 36 that day forward for ever ; Which the LORD 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.

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. VIII.

Ste have here an account of Moses consecrating Aaron and his sons ;

their sin offering ; their burnt offering ; the ram of consecrations ; and the place and time of their consecration. 1 AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Take Aaron 2 and his sons with him, and the garments, and the

anointing oil, and a bullock for the sin offering, and two 3 rams, and a basket of unleavened bread ; And gather thou

all the congregation together unto the door of the tabernacle 4 of the congregation. And Moses did as the LORD com

manded him ; and the assembly was gathered together unto 5 the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And Moses

said unto the congregation, This is the thing which the 6 LORD commanded to be done. And Moses brought Aaron 7 and his sons, and washed them with water. And he put on

him the coat, and girded him with the girdle, and clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him, and he girded

him with the curious girdle of the ephod, and bound [it] 8 unto him therewith. - And he put the breastplate upon him :

also he put in the breastplate the Urim and the Thummim, 9 And he put the mitre upon his head ; also upon the mitre,

[even) upon his forefront, did he put the golden plate, 10 the holy crown ; as the LORD commanded Moses. And

Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle'and Il all that (was) therein, and sanctified them. And he sprink

led thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed the altar

and all his vessels, both the laver and his foot, to sanctify 12 them. And he poored of the anointing oil úpon Aaron's 13 head, and anointed him, to sanctify him. And Moses brought

Aaron's sons, and put coats upon them, and girded them with girdles, and put bonnets upon them; as the LORD commanded Moses.

And he brought the bullock for the sin offering : and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bul15 lock for the sin offering. And he slew [it ;] and Moses took

the blood, and put [it] upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and pour

ed the blocd at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to 16 make reconciliation upon it. And he took all the fat that

swas) upon the inwards, and the caul [above] the liver, and

the two kidner's, and their fat, and Moses burned [it] upon 17 the altar. But the bullock, and his hide, his flesh, and his

dung, he burnt with fire without the camp ; as the LORD

commanded Nioses. 18 And he brought the ram for the burnt offering : and

Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the

14

24

19 ram. And lie killed (it ;] and Moses sprinkled the blood 20 upon the altar round about. And he cut the ram into pieces; 21 and Moses burnt the head, and the pieces, and the fat. And

he washed the inwards and the legs in water; and Moses burnt the whole ram upon the altar : it (was) a burnt sacrifice for a sweet savour, [and] an offering made by fire

unto the Lord; as the LORD commanded Moses. 22 And he brought the other rain, the ram of consecration :

and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the 23 ram. And he slew [it ;] and Moses took of the blood of it,

and put [it] upon the tip of Aaron's right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot. And he brought Aaron's sons, and Moses put of the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumbs of their right hands, and upon the great toes of their right feet :

and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about. 25 And he took the fat, and the rump, and all the fat that (was)

upon the inwards, and the caul [above] the liver, and the 26 two kidneys, and their fat, and the right shoulder : And out

of the basket of unleavened bread, that (was] before the LORD, he took one unleavened cake, and a cake of oiled

bread, and one wafer, and put (them] on the fat, and upon 27 the right shoulder : And he put all upon Aaron's hands, and

' upon his sons' hands, and waved them (for) a wave offering 28 before the LORD. And Moses took them from off their hands,

and burnt (them) on the altar upon the burnt offering : they

[were] consecrations for a sweet savour : it [is] an offering 29 made by fire unto the LORD. And Moses took the breast,

and waved it (for) a wave offering before the LORD : [for) of the ram of consecration it was Moses' part; as the LORD commanded Moses.

And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which (was] upon the altar, and sprinkled [it] upon Aaron, [and] upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sons' garments, with him ; and sanctified Aaron, [and] his

garments, and his sons, and his sons garments with him. 31 And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh

[at] the door of the tabernacle of the congregation : and there eat it with the bread that [is] in the basket of conse

crations, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall 32 eat it. And that which remaincth of the flesh and of the

bread, shall ye burn with fire. 33 And ye shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of

the congregation (in) seven days, until the days of your con

secration be at an end : for seven days shall he consecrate 34 you. As he hath done this day, so the LORD hath com35 manded to do, to make an atonement for you. Therefore

shall ye abide [at] the door of the tabernacle of the congré.

30

gation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the

LORD, that ye die not : for so I am commanded. 36 So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD com

manded by the hand of Moses.

CHAP. IX.

Contains an account of Aaron's sin offering and burnt offering for

himself and the people ; the people blessed ; and of the fire from heaven consuming the burnt offering. | AND it came to pass on the eighth day, [that] Moses • 1 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 thy3 self and the people, (0.7.) 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 people ; (v. 15.) 4. Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice be

fore the LORD : and a meat offering mingled with oil: for to

day 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 con

gregation 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 glorious

manifestation of God's powerful and graciou8 presence, (v.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 fin

ger in the blood, and put [it] upon the horns of the altar, and 10 poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar : But the fat,

and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of the sin offer

ing, he burnt upon the altar; as the LORD commanded Mo11 ses. And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without 12 the camp. And he slew the burnt offering ; and Aaron's

sons 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 there

of 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 sprink19 led upon the altar round about. And the fat of the bullock

and of the ram, the rump, and that which covereth (the in20 wards,] and the kidneys, and the caul (above) the liver : And

they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fat 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 peo

ple, 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 con

gregation, 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, which 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 in. stituted, and the sacrifices now 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 of himself, and his favour therein. See Gen. xvii. 3.
