The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 On the eighth day, Moses called in Aaron and his sons and the leaders of Israel. 1 On the eighth day Moses summoned Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel.
2 He spoke to Aaron: "Take a bull-calf for your Absolution-Offering and a ram for your Whole-Burnt-Offering, both without defect, and offer them to God. 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 tell the People of Israel, Take a male goat for an Absolution-Offering and a calf and a lamb, both yearlings without defect, for a Whole-Burnt-Offering 3 Then say to the Israelites: 'Take a male goat for a sin offering, a calf and a lamb--both a year old and without defect--for a burnt offering,
4 and a bull and a ram for a Peace-Offering, to be sacrificed before God with a Grain-Offering mixed with oil, because God will appear to you today." 4 and an ox and a ram for a fellowship offering to sacrifice before the LORD, together with a grain offering mixed with oil. For today the LORD will appear to you.' "
5 They brought the things that Moses had ordered to the Tent of Meeting. The whole congregation came near and stood before God. 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 Moses said, "This is what God commanded you to do so that the Shining Glory of God will appear to you." 6 Then Moses said, "This is what the LORD has commanded you to do, so that the glory of the LORD may appear to you."
7 Moses instructed Aaron, "Approach the Altar and sacrifice your Absolution-Offering and your Whole-Burnt-Offering. Make atonement for yourself and for the people. Sacrifice the offering that is for the people and make atonement for them, just as God commanded." 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; sacrifice the offering that is for the people and make atonement for them, as the LORD has commanded."
8 Aaron approached the Altar and slaughtered the calf as an Absolution-Offering for himself. 8 So Aaron came to the altar and slaughtered the calf as a sin offering for himself.
9 Aaron's sons brought the blood to him. He dipped his finger in the blood and smeared some of it on the horns of the Altar. He poured out the rest of the blood at the base of the Altar. 9 His sons brought the blood to him, and he dipped his finger into the blood and put it on the horns of the altar; the rest of the blood he poured out at the base of the altar.
10 He burned the fat, the kidneys, and the lobe of the liver from the Absolution-Offering on the Altar, just as God had commanded Moses. 10 On the altar he burned the fat, the kidneys and the covering of the liver from the sin offering, as the LORD commanded Moses;
11 He burned the meat and the skin outside the camp. 11 the flesh and the hide he burned up outside the camp.
12 Then he slaughtered the Whole-Burnt-Offering. Aaron's sons handed him the blood and he threw it against each side of the Altar. 12 Then he slaughtered the burnt offering. His sons handed him the blood, and he sprinkled it against the altar on all sides.
13 They handed him the pieces and the head and he burned these on the Altar. 13 They handed him the burnt offering piece by piece, including the head, and he burned them on the altar.
14 He washed the entrails and the legs and burned them on top of the Whole-Burnt-Offering on the Altar. 14 He washed the inner parts and the legs and burned them on top of the burnt offering on the altar.
15 Next Aaron presented the offerings of the people. He took the male goat, the Absolution-Offering for the people, slaughtered it, and offered it as an Absolution-Offering just as he did with the first offering. 15 Aaron then brought the offering that was for the people. He took the goat for the people's sin offering and slaughtered it and offered it for a sin offering as he did with the first one.
16 He presented the Whole-Burnt-Offering following the same procedures. 16 He brought the burnt offering and offered it in the prescribed way.
17 He presented the Grain-Offering by taking a handful of it and burning it on the Altar along with the morning Whole-Burnt-Offering. 17 He also brought the grain offering, took a handful of it and burned it on the altar in addition to the morning's burnt offering.
18 He slaughtered the bull and the ram, the people's Peace-Offerings. Aaron's sons handed him the blood and he threw it against each side of the Altar. 18 He slaughtered the ox and the ram as the fellowship offering for the people. His sons handed him the blood, and he sprinkled it against the altar on all sides.
19 The fat pieces from the bull and the ram - the fat tail and the fat that covers the kidney and the lobe of the liver - 19 But the fat portions of the ox and the ram--the fat tail, the layer of fat, the kidneys and the covering of the liver--
20 they laid on the breasts and Aaron burned it on the Altar. 20 these they laid on the breasts, and then Aaron burned the fat on the altar.
21 Aaron waved the breasts and the right thigh before God as a Wave-Offering, just as God commanded. 21 Aaron waved the breasts and the right thigh before the LORD as a wave offering, as Moses commanded.
22 Aaron lifted his hands over the people and blessed them. Having completed the rituals of the Absolution-Offering, the Whole-Burnt-Offering, and the Peace-Offering, he came down from the Altar. 22 Then Aaron lifted his hands toward the people and blessed them. And having sacrificed the sin offering, the burnt offering and the fellowship offering, he stepped down.
23 Moses and Aaron entered the Tent of Meeting. When they came out they blessed the people and the Glory of God appeared to all the people. 23 Moses and Aaron then went into the Tent of Meeting. When they came out, they blessed the people; and the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people.
24 Fire blazed out from God and consumed the Whole-Burnt-Offering and the fat pieces on the Altar. When all the people saw it happen they cheered loudly and then fell down, bowing in reverence. 24 Fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed the burnt offering and the fat portions on the altar. And when all the people saw it, they shouted for joy and fell facedown.
