And this is what thou shalt do unto them to sanctify them that they shall be my priests: Take one young bullock and two perfect rams
and unleavened bread and unleavened cakes tempered with oil and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, which thou shalt make of wheat flour.
And thou shalt put them into a basket and offer them in the basket with the bullock and the two rams.
And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the tabernacle of the testimony and shalt wash them with water.
And thou shalt take the garments and clothe Aaron with the coat and the robe of the ephod and the ephod and the pectoral and gird him with the special girdle of the ephod;
and thou shalt put the mitre upon his head and put the crown of holiness upon the mitre.
Then shalt thou take the anointing oil and pour it
upon his head and anoint him.
And thou shalt bring his sons and put coats upon them.
And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and bind the tiaras on them; and the priest’s office shall be theirs for a perpetual statute; and thou shalt fill the hands Aaron and his sons.
And thou shalt cause the bullock to be brought before the tabernacle of the testimony, and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the bullock.
And thou shalt kill the bullock before the LORD by
the door of the tabernacle of the testimony.
And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock and put it
upon the horns of the altar with thy finger and pour all the remaining
blood beside the bottom of the altar.
And thou shalt take all the fat that covers the intestines and the caul that is
above the liver and the two kidneys and the fat that is
upon them and burn them
upon the altar.
But the flesh of the bullock and his skin and his dung shalt thou burn with fire outside the camp; it is
Thou shalt likewise take one ram, and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his blood and sprinkle it
round about upon the altar.
And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces and wash his intestines and his legs and put them
upon his pieces and upon his head.
And thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is
a burnt offering unto the LORD: it is
a sweet savour, an offering on fire unto the LORD.
And thou shalt take the other ram, and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
Then shalt thou kill the ram and take of his blood and put it
upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron and upon the tip of the right ears of his sons and upon the thumb of their right hands and upon the great toe of their right feet and sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.
And thou shalt take of the blood that shall be
upon the altar and of the anointing oil and sprinkle it
upon Aaron and upon his garments and upon his sons and upon their garments, and he shall be sanctified, and his garments and his sons and his sons’ garments with him.
Then thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the tail and the fat that covers the intestines and the caul above
the liver and the two kidneys and the fat that is
upon them and the right shoulder, for it is
a ram of consecrations,
Also one large
loaf of bread and one cake of oiled bread and one wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is
before the LORD;
and thou shalt put all this
in the hands of Aaron and in the hands of his sons and shalt lift them up and wave them before the LORD.
Then thou shalt take them from their hands and burn them
upon the altar upon the burnt offering, for a sweet savour before the LORD. It is
an offering on fire unto the LORD.
And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of the consecrations, which is of Aaron and wave it for
a waved offering
before the LORD; and it shall be thy part.
And thou shalt set apart the breast of the waved offering and the shoulder of the sanctification, that
which was waved and that
which was sanctified of the ram of the consecrations of Aaron and of his sons;
and it shall be for Aaron and for his sons by a perpetual statute of the sons of Israel, for it is
something set apart, and it shall be set apart of the sons of Israel of the sacrifice of their peace offerings; it shall be
something of theirs set apart unto the LORD.
And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons’ after him, to be anointed with them and to be consecrated with them.
for seven days the priest of his sons, who in his stead shall come into the tabernacle of the testimony, shall put them on to serve in the sanctuary.
And thou shalt take the ram of the consecrations and cook his flesh in the holy place.
And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram and the bread that is
in the basket by
the door of the tabernacle of the testimony.
And they shall eat those things with which they were reconciled, to fill their hands to be sanctified; but a stranger shall not eat thereof
because they are
And if any of the flesh of the consecrations or of the bread remains unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the remainder with fire; it shall not be eaten, because it is
And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron and to his sons, according to all the things which I
have commanded thee; for seven days shalt thou consecrate them.
And thou shalt sacrifice a bullock every day for reconciliation of sin; and thou shalt remove the sin from the altar, and thou shalt anoint it to sanctify it.
For seven days thou shalt reconcile the altar and sanctify it; and it shall be a most holy altar; whatever touches the altar shall be made
Now this is that
which thou shalt offer upon the altar: two lambs of the first year every day continually.
The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning, and the other lamb thou shalt offer at evening.
Moreover a tenth ephah
of flour mingled with the fourth part of a hin of beaten oil and the fourth part of a hin of wine with each lamb.
And thou shalt offer the other lamb at evening, doing according to the present of the morning and according to its drink offering thereof, for a sweet savour, an offering on fire unto the LORD.
This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your ages at the door of the tabernacle of the testimony before the LORD, where I will concert with you, to speak there unto you.
And there I will testify of myself unto the sons of Israel, and the place
shall be sanctified with my glory.
And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the testimony and the altar; I will likewise
sanctify both Aaron and his sons that they may be my priests.
And I will dwell among the sons of Israel and shall be their God.
And they shall know that I am
the LORD their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them; I am
the LORD your God.
