Then the LORDspoke to Moses, saying,
"1TakeAaron and his sons with him, and the 2garments and 3the anointingoil and the bull of the sinoffering, and the tworams and the basket of unleavenedbread,
and assembleall the congregation at the doorway of the tent of meeting."
So Mosesdidjust as the LORDcommanded him. When the congregation was assembled at the doorway of the tent of meeting,
5Mosessaid to the congregation, "This is the thingwhich the LORD has commanded to do."
Then 4Moses had Aaron and his sonscomenear and 5washed them with water.
He 6put the tunic on him and girded him with the sash, and clothed him with the robe and put the ephod on him; and he girded him with the artisticband of the ephod, awith which he tied it to him.
He then placed the bbreastpiece on him, and in the cbreastpiece he putd7the Urim and the Thummim.
He also placed the turban on his head, and on the turban, at its front, he placed8the goldenplate, the holycrown, just as the LORD had commandedMoses.
10Moses then took9the anointingoil and anointed the etabernacle and all that was in it, and consecrated them.
He sprinkledsome of it on the altarseventimes and anointed the altar and all its utensils, and the basin and its stand, to 10consecrate them.
Then he pouredsome of the 11anointingoil on Aaron'shead and anointed him, to consecrate him.
1312Next Moses had Aaron'ssonscomenear and clothed them with tunics, and girded them with sashes and boundfcaps on them, just as the LORD had commandedMoses.
Then he brought13the bull of the sinoffering, and Aaron and his sonslaid their hands on the head of the bull of the sinoffering.
Next gMosesslaughtered it and took the blood and with his finger14put some of it around on the horns of the altar, and purified the altar. Then he poured out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar and consecrated it, to makeatonement for it.
He also 15tookall the fat that was on the entrails and the hlobe of the liver, and the twokidneys and their fat ; and Mosesoffered it up in smoke on the altar.
1716But the bull and its hide and its flesh and its refuse he burned in the fireoutside the camp, just as the LORD had commandedMoses.
Then he presented17the ram of the burntoffering, and Aaron and his sonslaid their hands on the head of the ram.
19iMosesslaughtered it and sprinkled the bloodaround on the altar.
When he had cut the ram into its pieces, Moses18offered up the head and the pieces and the suet in smoke.
After he had washed the entrails and the legs with water, Moses19offered up the wholeram in smoke on the altar. It was a burntoffering for a soothingaroma ; it was an offering by fire to the LORD, just as the LORD had commandedMoses.
Then he presented the secondram, 20the ram of jordination, and Aaron and his sonslaid their hands on the head of the ram.
23kMosesslaughtered it and tooksome of its blood and 21put it on the lobe of Aaron'srightear, and on the thumb of his righthand and on the bigtoe of his rightfoot.
He also had Aaron'ssonscomenear ; and Mosesputsome of the blood on the lobe of their rightear, and on the thumb of their righthand and on the bigtoe of their rightfoot. Moses then 22sprinkled the rest of the bloodaround on the altar.
He took the fat, and the fattail, and all the fat that was on the entrails, and the llobe of the liver and the twokidneys and their fat and the rightthigh.
2623From the basket of unleavenedbread that was before the LORD, he tookoneunleavenedcake and onecake of bread mixed with oil and onewafer, and placed them on the portions of fat and on the rightthigh.
He then 24putall these on the hands of Aaron and on the hands of his sons and presented them as a waveofferingbefore the LORD.
Then Moses25took them from their hands and offered them up in smoke on the altar with the burntoffering. They were an ordinationoffering for 26a soothingaroma ; it was an offering by fire to the LORD.
29Moses also took27the breast and presented it for a waveofferingbefore the LORD ; it was 28Moses'portion of the ram of ordination, just as the LORD had commandedMoses.
So Moses29tooksome of the anointingoil and some of the bloodwhich was on the altar and sprinkled it on Aaron, on his garments, on his sons, and on the garments of his sons with him; and he consecratedAaron, his garments, and his sons, and the garments of his sons with him.
Then Mosessaid to Aaron and to his sons, "30Boil the flesh at the doorway of the tent of meeting, and eat it there together with the breadwhich is in the basket of the ordinationoffering, just as I commanded, 31saying, 'Aaron and his sons shall eat it.'
"32The remainder of the flesh and of the bread you shall burn in the fire.
"33You shall not gooutside the doorway of the tent of meeting for sevendays, until the day that the period of your ordination is fulfilled ; for he will mordain you through sevendays.
"The LORD has commanded to do as has been donethisday, to makeatonement on your behalf.
"At the doorway of the tent of meeting, moreover, you shall remainday and night for sevendays and 34keep the charge of the LORD, so that you will not die, for so I have been commanded."
Thus Aaron and his sonsdidall the thingswhich the LORD had commandedthroughMoses.
