And they stood in their place after their manner, according to
the law of Moses the man of God
The priests in their place, and the Levites in theirs, in which they were ordered to stand when they offered sacrifice:
the priests sprinkled the blood,
which they received of the hand of the Levites; the blood either of the burnt offerings before mentioned, or of the passover lambs, which the Levites slew, and received the blood of them in basins; and which the priests took of them, and sprinkled, not on the door posts of houses, as in Egypt, but on the altar round about, and which none but priests might do, ( Leviticus 1:5 ) .
