1 This is what you are to do to make them holy, to do the work of priests to me: Take one young ox and two male sheep, without any mark on them, 1 "This is what you are to do to consecrate them, so they may serve me as priests: Take a young bull and two rams without defect.
2 And unleavened bread, and unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and thin unleavened cakes on which oil has been put, made of the best bread-meal; 2 And from fine wheat flour, without yeast, make bread, and cakes mixed with oil, and wafers spread with oil.
3 Put these in a basket and take them, with the ox and the two sheep. 3 Put them in a basket and present them in it--along with the bull and the two rams.
4 And let Aaron and his sons come to the door of the Tent of meeting, and there let them be washed with water. 4 Then bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting and wash them with water.
5 Take the robes, and put the coat and the dress and the ephod and the priest's bag on Aaron; put the band of needlework round him, 5 Take the garments and dress Aaron with the tunic, the robe of the ephod, the ephod itself and the breastpiece. Fasten the ephod on him by its skillfully woven waistband.
6 And let the head-dress be placed on his head and the holy crown on the head-dress. 6 Put the turban on his head and attach the sacred diadem to the turban.
7 Then take the oil and put it on his head. 7 Take the anointing oil and anoint him by pouring it on his head.
8 And take his sons and put their robes on them; 8 Bring his sons and dress them in tunics
9 And put the linen bands round Aaron and his sons, and the head-dresses on them, to make them priests by my order for ever: so you are to make Aaron and his sons holy to me. 9 and put headbands on them. Then tie sashes on Aaron and his sons. The priesthood is theirs by a lasting ordinance. In this way you shall ordain Aaron and his sons.
10 Then let the ox be taken in front of the Tent of meeting: and let Aaron and his sons put their hands on its head. 10 "Bring the bull to the front of the Tent of Meeting, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on its head.
11 And you are to put the ox to death before the Lord at the door of the Tent of meeting. 11 Slaughter it in the LORD's presence at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
12 Then take some of the blood of the ox, and put it on the horns of the altar with your finger, draining out all the rest of the blood at the base of the altar. 12 Take some of the bull's blood and put it on the horns of the altar with your finger, and pour out the rest of it at the base of the altar.
13 And take all the fat covering the inside of the ox, and the fat joining the liver and the two kidneys with the fat round them, and let them be burned on the altar; 13 Then take all the fat around the inner parts, the covering of the liver, and both kidneys with the fat on them, and burn them on the altar.
14 But the flesh of the ox and its skin and its waste parts are to be burned outside the circle of the tents, for it is a sin-offering. 14 But burn the bull's flesh and its hide and its offal outside the camp. It is a sin offering.
15 Then take one of the sheep, and let Aaron and his sons put their hands on its head. 15 "Take one of the rams, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on its head.
16 Then let it be put to death, so that the sides of the altar are marked with its blood. 16 Slaughter it and take the blood and sprinkle it against the altar on all sides.
17 Then the sheep is to be cut up into its parts, and after washing its legs and its inside parts, you are to put them with the parts and the head, 17 Cut the ram into pieces and wash the inner parts and the legs, putting them with the head and the other pieces.
18 And let them all be burned on the altar as a burned offering to the Lord: a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord. 18 Then burn the entire ram on the altar. It is a burnt offering to the LORD, a pleasing aroma, an offering made to the LORD by fire.
19 Then take the other sheep; and after Aaron and his sons have put their hands on its head, 19 "Take the other ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on its head.
20 You are to put the sheep to death, and take some of its blood and put it on the point of Aaron's right ear, and of the right ears of his sons, and on the thumbs of their right hands and the great toes of their right feet, dropping the rest of the blood on the sides of the altar. 20 Slaughter it, take some of its blood and put it on the lobes of the right ears of Aaron and his sons, on the thumbs of their right hands, and on the big toes of their right feet. Then sprinkle blood against the altar on all sides.
21 Then take some of the blood on the altar, and the oil, and put it on Aaron and his robes and on his sons and on their robes, so that he and his robes and his sons and their robes may be made holy. 21 And take some of the blood on the altar and some of the anointing oil and sprinkle it on Aaron and his garments and on his sons and their garments. Then he and his sons and their garments will be consecrated.
22 Then take the fat of the sheep, the fat tail, the fat covering the insides, and the fat joining the liver and the two kidneys with the fat round them, and the right leg; for by the offering of this sheep they are to be marked out as priests: 22 "Take from this ram the fat, the fat tail, the fat around the inner parts, the covering of the liver, both kidneys with the fat on them, and the right thigh. (This is the ram for the ordination.)
23 And take one bit of bread and one cake of oiled bread and one thin cake out of the basket of unleavened bread which is before the Lord: 23 From the basket of bread made without yeast, which is before the LORD, take a loaf, and a cake made with oil, and a wafer.
24 And put them all on the hands of Aaron and of his sons, to be waved for a wave offering before the Lord. 24 Put all these in the hands of Aaron and his sons and wave them before the LORD as a wave offering.

26 Then take the breast of Aaron's sheep, waving it before the Lord; and it is to be your part of the offering. 26 After you take the breast of the ram for Aaron's ordination, wave it before the LORD as a wave offering, and it will be your share.
27 So you are to make holy the breast of the sheep which is waved and the leg which is lifted up on high, that is, of the sheep which is offered for Aaron and his sons; 27 "Consecrate those parts of the ordination ram that belong to Aaron and his sons: the breast that was waved and the thigh that was presented.
28 And it will be their part as a right for ever from the children of Israel, it is a special offering from the children of Israel, made from their peace-offerings, a special offering lifted up to the Lord. 28 This is always to be the regular share from the Israelites for Aaron and his sons. It is the contribution the Israelites are to make to the LORD from their fellowship offerings.
29 And Aaron's holy robes will be used by his sons after him; they will put them on when they are made priests. 29 "Aaron's sacred garments will belong to his descendants so that they can be anointed and ordained in them.
30 For seven days the son who becomes priest in his place will put them on when he comes into the Tent of meeting to do the work of the holy place. 30 The son who succeeds him as priest and comes to the Tent of Meeting to minister in the Holy Place is to wear them seven days.
31 Then take the sheep of the wave offering and let its flesh be cooked in water in a holy place. 31 "Take the ram for the ordination and cook the meat in a sacred place.
32 And let Aaron and his sons make a meal of it, with the bread in the basket, at the door of the Tent of meeting. 32 At the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, Aaron and his sons are to eat the meat of the ram and the bread that is in the basket.
33 All those things which were used as offerings to take away sin, and to make them holy to be priests, they may have for food: but no one who is not a priest may have them, for they are holy food. 33 They are to eat these offerings by which atonement was made for their ordination and consecration. But no one else may eat them, because they are sacred.
34 And if any of the flesh of the offering or of the bread is over till the morning, let it be burned with fire; it is not to be used for food, for it is holy. 34 And if any of the meat of the ordination ram or any bread is left over till morning, burn it up. It must not be eaten, because it is sacred.
35 All these things you are to do to Aaron and his sons as I have given you orders: for seven days the work of making them priests is to go on. 35 "Do for Aaron and his sons everything I have commanded you, taking seven days to ordain them.
36 Every day an ox is to be offered as a sin-offering, to take away sins: and by this offering on it, you will make the altar clean from sin; and you are to put oil on it and make it holy. 36 Sacrifice a bull each day as a sin offering to make atonement. Purify the altar by making atonement for it, and anoint it to consecrate it.
37 For seven days you are to make offerings for the altar and make it holy, so that it may become completely holy, and anything touching it will become holy. 37 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.
38 Now this is the offering which you are to make on the altar: two lambs in their first year, every day regularly. 38 "This is what you are to offer on the altar regularly each day: two lambs a year old.
39 One lamb is to be offered in the morning and the other in the evening: 39 Offer one in the morning and the other at twilight.
40 And with the one lamb, a tenth part of an ephah of the best meal, mixed with a fourth part of a hin of clear oil; and the fourth part of a hin of wine for a drink offering. 40 With the first lamb offer a tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with a quarter of a hin of oil from pressed olives, and a quarter of a hin of wine as a drink offering.
41 And the other lamb is to be offered in the evening, and with it the same meal offering and drink offering, for a sweet smell, an offering made by fire to the Lord. 41 Sacrifice the other lamb at twilight with the same grain offering and its drink offering as in the morning--a pleasing aroma, an offering made to the LORD by fire.
42 This is to be a regular burned offering made from generation to generation, at the door of the Tent of meeting before the Lord, where I will come face to face with you and have talk with you. 42 "For the generations to come this burnt offering is to be made regularly at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting before the LORD. There I will meet you and speak to you;
43 There I will come face to face with the children of Israel, and the Tent will be made holy by my glory 43 there also I will meet with the Israelites, and the place will be consecrated by my glory.
44 I will make holy the Tent of meeting and the altar: and Aaron and his sons I will make holy, to be my priests 44 "So I will consecrate the Tent of Meeting and the altar and will consecrate Aaron and his sons to serve me as priests.
45 Among the children of Israel I will make my living-place, and I will be their God. 45 Then I will dwell among the Israelites and be their God.
46 And they will see that I am the Lord their God, who took them out of the land of Egypt, so that I might be ever with them: I am the Lord their God. 46 They will know that I am the LORD their God, who brought them out of Egypt so that I might dwell among them. I am the LORD their God.
