New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 "This is the ceremony for the dedication of Aaron and his sons as priests: Take a young bull and two rams with no physical defects. 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 Then using fine wheat flour and no yeast, make loaves of bread, thin cakes mixed with olive oil, and wafers with oil poured over them. 2 And from fine wheat flour, without yeast, make bread, and cakes mixed with oil, and wafers spread with oil.
3 Place these various kinds of bread in a single basket, and present them at the entrance of the Tabernacle, along with the young bull and the two rams." 3 Put them in a basket and present them in it--along with the bull and the two rams.
4 "Present Aaron and his sons at the entrance of the Tabernacle, and wash them with water. 4 Then bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting and wash them with water.
5 Then put Aaron's tunic on him, along with the embroidered robe of the ephod, the ephod itself, the chestpiece, and the sash. 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 place on his head the turban with the gold medallion. 6 Put the turban on his head and attach the sacred diadem to the turban.
7 Then take the anointing oil and pour it over his head. 7 Take the anointing oil and anoint him by pouring it on his head.
8 Next present his sons, and dress them in their tunics 8 Bring his sons and dress them in tunics
9 with their woven sashes and their headdresses. They will then be priests forever. In this way, you will ordain Aaron and his sons. 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 bring the young bull to the entrance of the Tabernacle, and Aaron and his sons will lay 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 You will then slaughter it in the LORD's presence at the entrance of the Tabernacle. 11 Slaughter it in the LORD's presence at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
12 Smear some of its blood on the horns of the altar with your finger, and pour out the rest 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 Take all the fat that covers the internal organs, also the long lobe of the liver and the two kidneys with their fat, and burn them 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 Then take the carcass (including the skin and the dung) outside the camp, and burn it as 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 "Next Aaron and his sons must lay their hands on the head of one of the rams 15 "Take one of the rams, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on its head.
16 as it is slaughtered. Its blood will be collected and sprinkled on the sides of the altar. 16 Slaughter it and take the blood and sprinkle it against the altar on all sides.
17 Cut up the ram and wash off the internal organs and the legs. Set them alongside the head and the other pieces of the body, 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 burn them all on the altar. This is a burnt offering to the LORD, which is very pleasing to him. 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 "Now take the other ram and have Aaron and his sons lay their hands on its head 19 "Take the other ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on its head.
20 as it is slaughtered. Collect the blood and place some of it on the tip of the right earlobes of Aaron and his sons. Also put it on their right thumbs and the big toes of their right feet. Sprinkle 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 from the altar and mix it with some of the anointing oil. Sprinkle it on Aaron and his sons and on their clothes. In this way, they and their clothing will be set apart as holy to the LORD. 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 "Since this is the ram for the ordination of Aaron and his sons, take the fat of the ram, including the fat tail and the fat that covers the internal organs. Also, take the long lobe of the liver, the two kidneys with their fat, and the right thigh. 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 Then take one loaf of bread, one cake mixed with olive oil, and one wafer from the basket of yeastless bread that was placed 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 Put all these in the hands of Aaron and his sons to be lifted up as a special gift to the LORD. 24 Put all these in the hands of Aaron and his sons and wave them before the LORD as a wave offering.
25 Afterward take the bread from their hands, and burn it on the altar as a burnt offering that will be pleasing to the LORD. 25 Then take them from their hands and burn them on the altar along with the burnt offering for a pleasing aroma to the LORD, an offering made to the LORD by fire.
26 Then take the breast of Aaron's ordination ram, and lift it up in the LORD's presence as a special gift to him. Afterward keep it for yourself." 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 "Set aside as holy the parts of the ordination ram that belong to Aaron and his sons. This includes the breast and the thigh that were lifted up before the LORD in the ordination ceremony. 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 In the future, whenever the people of Israel offer up peace offerings or thanksgiving offerings to the LORD, these parts will be the regular share of Aaron and his descendants." 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 "Aaron's sacred garments must be preserved for his descendants who will succeed him, so they can be anointed and ordained in them. 29 "Aaron's sacred garments will belong to his descendants so that they can be anointed and ordained in them.
30 Whoever is the next high priest after Aaron will wear these clothes for seven days before beginning to minister in the Tabernacle and 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 "Take the ram used in the ordination ceremony, and boil its meat in a sacred place. 31 "Take the ram for the ordination and cook the meat in a sacred place.
32 Aaron and his sons are to eat this meat, along with the bread in the basket, at the Tabernacle entrance. 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 They alone may eat the meat and bread used for their atonement in the ordination ceremony. The ordinary people may not eat them, for these things are set apart and holy. 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 If any of the ordination meat or bread remains until the morning, it must be burned. It may not be eaten, 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 "This is how you will ordain Aaron and his sons to their offices. The ordination ceremony will go on for seven days. 35 "Do for Aaron and his sons everything I have commanded you, taking seven days to ordain them.
36 Each day you must sacrifice a young bull as an offering for the atonement of sin. Afterward make an offering to cleanse the altar. Purify the altar by making atonement for it; make it holy by anointing it with oil. 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 Make atonement for the altar every day for seven days. After that, the altar will be exceedingly holy, and whatever touches 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 "This is what you are to offer on the altar. Offer two one-year-old lambs each day, 38 "This is what you are to offer on the altar regularly each day: two lambs a year old.
39 one in the morning and the other in the evening. 39 Offer one in the morning and the other at twilight.
40 With one of them, offer two quarts of fine flour mixed with one quart of olive oil; also, offer one quart of wine as 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 Offer the other lamb in the evening, along with the same offerings of flour and wine as in the morning. It will be a fragrant offering to the LORD, an offering made by fire." 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 daily burnt offering given from generation to generation. Offer it in the LORD's presence at the Tabernacle entrance, where I will meet you and speak 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 I will meet the people of Israel there, and the Tabernacle will be sanctified by my glorious presence. 43 there also I will meet with the Israelites, and the place will be consecrated by my glory.
44 Yes, I will make the Tabernacle and the altar most holy, and I will set apart Aaron and his sons as holy, that they may 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 I will live among the people of Israel and be their God, 45 Then I will dwell among the Israelites and be their God.
46 and they will know that I am the LORD their God. I am the one who brought them out of Egypt so that I could live among 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.
