Sacrifice a bull each day1 as a sin offering to make atonement2. Purify the altar by making atonement for it, and anoint it to consecrate3 it.
For seven days make atonement for the altar and consecrate it. Then the altar will be most holy, and whatever touches it will be holy.438
"This is what you are to offer on the altar regularly each day:5 two lambs a year old.
Offer one in the morning and the other at twilight.640
With the first lamb offer a tenth of an ephaha of fine flour mixed with a quarter of a hinb of oil7 from pressed olives, and a quarter of a hin of wine as a drink offering.841
Sacrifice the other lamb at twilight9 with the same grain offering10 and its drink offering as in the morning--a pleasing aroma, an offering made to the LORD by fire.
"For the generations to come11 this burnt offering is to be made regularly12 at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting13 before the LORD. There I will meet you and speak to you;1443
there also I will meet with the Israelites, and the place will be consecrated by my glory.1544
"So I will consecrate the Tent of Meeting and the altar and will consecrate Aaron and his sons to serve me as priests.1645
Then I will dwell17 among the Israelites and be their God.1846
They will know that I am the LORD their God, who brought them out of Egypt19 so that I might dwell among them. I am the LORD their God.20
