The Priests Begin Their Ministry

1 On the eighth day1 Moses summoned Aaron and his sons and the elders2 of Israel. 2 He said to Aaron, "Take a bull calf for your sin offering and a ram for your burnt offering, both without defect, and present them before the LORD. 3 Then say to the Israelites: 'Take a male goat3 for a sin offering,4 a calf5 and a lamb6--both a year old and without defect--for a burnt offering, 4 and an oxa7 and a ram for a fellowship offeringb8 to sacrifice before the LORD, together with a grain offering mixed with oil. For today the LORD will appear to you.9' " 5 They took the things Moses commanded to the front of the Tent of Meeting, and the entire assembly came near and stood before the LORD. 6 Then Moses said, "This is what the LORD has commanded you to do, so that the glory of the LORD 10 may appear to you." 7 Moses said to Aaron, "Come to the altar and sacrifice your sin offering and your burnt offering and make atonement for yourself and the people;11 sacrifice the offering that is for the people and make atonement for them, as the LORD has commanded.12" 8 So Aaron came to the altar and slaughtered the calf as a sin offering13 for himself.
