Exodus 29

CLV(i) 1 This is the thing that you shall do to them to hallow them to serve as priests for Me. Take one young bull calf of the herd and two flawless rams, 2 unleavened bread and unleavened perforated cakes mingled with oil and unleavened wafers anointed with oil; of wheat flour shall you make them. 3 You will put them on one tray and bring them near in the tray, with the young bull and the two rams. 4 Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons near to the portal of the tent of appointment, and wash them in water. 5 You will take the garments and put on Aaron the tunic and the robe of the vestment and the vestment and the breastplate, and you will invest him with the designed band of the vestment. 6 You will place the turban on his head and put the holy insignia on the turban. 7 Also you will take the anointing oil and pour it on his head and anoint him. 8 And you shall bring his sons near and put tunics on them. 9 Then you will gird them with sashes, Aaron and his sons, and bind up caps on them, so that the priesthood comes to be theirs for an eonian statute when you have filled the hand of Aaron and the hands of his sons. 10 You will bring the young bull near before the tent of appointment, and Aaron and his sons will support their hands on the head of the young bull. 11 You will slay the young bull before Yahweh at the portal of the tent of appointment, 12 take some of the blood of the young bull and put it on the horns of the altar with your finger. And you shall pour out all the rest of the blood at the foundation of the altar. 13 Then you will take all the fat covering the inwards and the redundance above the liver and the two kidneys and the fat which is on them, and you will cause them to fume on the altar. 14 Yet the flesh of the young bull and its hide and its dung shall you burn with fire outside the camp. A sin offering is it. 15 You shall take one ram, and Aaron and his sons shall support their hands on the head of the ram. 16 You will slay the ram, take its blood and sprinkle it on the altar round about. 17 You shall piece the ram into its pieces, wash its inwards and its shanks and put them on its pieces and on its head. 18 Then you will cause all the ram to fume on the altar. An ascent offering is it to Yahweh. It is a fragrant odor, a fire offering to Yahweh. 19 Then you will take the second ram, and Aaron and his sons will support their hands on the head of the ram. 20 You will slay the ram, take some of its blood and put it on the lobe of Aaron's right ear and on the lobes of the right ears of his sons and on the thumbs of their right hands and on the big toes of their right feet; and you will sprinkle the blood on the altar round about. 21 Then you will take some of the blood which is on the altar and some of the anointing oil and splatter it on Aaron and on his garments and on his sons and on the garments of his sons with him, so that he will be holy, he and his garments, and his sons and the garments of his sons with him. 22 You will take from the ram the fat: the fat tail and the fat covering the inwards and the redundance above the liver and the two kidneys and the fat which is on them and the right leg (for it is a ram of consecrations), 23 and one cake of bread and one perforated cake of oiled bread and one wafer from the tray of unleavened bread which is before Yahweh. 24 You will place the whole on the palms of Aaron and on the palms of his sons and wave them for a wave offering before Yahweh. 25 Then you will take them from their hands and cause them to fume on the altar on top of the ascent offering for a fragrant odor before Yahweh. It is a fire offering to Yahweh. 26 You will take the chest of the ram of consecrations which is for Aaron and wave it as a wave offering before Yahweh; and it will come to be your assigned share. 27 Then you will hallow the chest of the wave offering and the leg of the heave offering, which is waved and what is heaved from the ram of consecrations which is for Aaron and which is for his sons. 28 It will come to be for Aaron and for his sons as an eonian statute from the sons of Israel, for it is a heave offering. And it shall become a heave offering from the sons of Israel, from the sacrifices of their peace offerings, their heave offering to Yahweh. 29 The holy garments which are Aaron's shall become his sons' after him, to be anointed in them and to fill their hands in them. 30 Seven days one of his sons, whoever is priest in his stead, he who comes into the tent of appointment to minister in the holy place, shall put them on. 31 The ram of consecrations shall you take and cook its flesh in a holy place; 32 and Aaron and his sons will eat the flesh of the ram and the bread which is in the tray at the portal of the tent of appointment. 33 You will eat them by which a propitiatory shelter was made to fill their hands to hallow them. Yet an alien shall not eat them, for they are holy. 34 And if something is left of the flesh of consecrations or of the bread until the morning then you will burn that left over with fire; it shall not be eaten, for it is holy. 35 You will do thus for Aaron and for his sons according to all that I have instructed you. Seven days shall you fill their hands. 36 A young bull as a sin offering shall you offer day by day for propitiatory shelters; you will make a sin offering on the altar when you make your propitiatory shelter on it. And you will anoint it to hallow it. 37 Seven days shall you make a propitiatory shelter on the altar and hallow it. Thus the altar becomes a holy of holies. All that touches the altar shall be holy. 38 This is what you shall offer on the altar: two he-lambs a year old day by day regularly. 39 The one he-lamb shall you offer in the morning, and the second he-lamb shall you offer between the evening hours, 40 also a tenth of an ephah of flour mingled with a quarter of a hin of pounded oil, and a libation of a quarter of a hin of wine for the one lamb. 41 And the second lamb you shall offer between the evening hours; as the morning approach present and as its libation shall you offer it, for a fragrant odor, a fire offering to Yahweh, 42 a regular ascent offering throughout your generations, at the portal of the tent of appointment, before Yahweh, where I shall keep appointment with you to speak to you there. 43 And I will keep appointment there with the sons of Israel, and it will be hallowed by My glory. 44 Thus I will hallow the tent of appointment and the altar; and Aaron and his sons shall I hallow to serve as priests for Me. 45 I will tabernacle in the midst of the sons of Israel and will become their Elohim. 46 Then they will realize that I am Yahweh their Elohim Who brought them forth from the land of Egypt that I may tabernacle in their midst. I am Yahweh their Elohim.
