Leviticus 9

CLV(i) 1 It came to be on the eighth day that Moses called Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel. 2 He said to Aaron:Take for yourself a young bull calf of the herd as a sin offering, and a ram for an ascent offering, both of the flawless, and bring them near before Yahweh. 3 And to the sons of Israel shall you speak, saying:Take a hairy one of the goats as a sin offering, also a calf and a sheep both of them a year old and flawless, as an ascent offering, 4 also a bull and a ram for peace offerings to sacrifice before Yahweh, and an approach present mingled with oil, for today Yahweh will appear to you. 5 So they took what Moses has instructed in view of the tent of appointment. And the whole congregation came near and stood before Yahweh; 6 and Moses said:This is the thing which Yahweh has instructed that you should do so that the glory of Yahweh may appear to you. 7 Then Moses said to Aaron:Come near to the altar, offer your sin offering and your ascent offering, make a propitiatory shelter about you and about the people, offer the approach present of the people, and make a propitiatory shelter about them, just as Yahweh has instructed. 8 Aaron came near to the altar and slew the calf of the sin offering which was for himself. 9 When the sons of Aaron brought near the blood to him, he dipped his finger into the blood and put it on the horns of the altar, and the rest of the blood he poured out at the foundation of the altar. 10 The fat and the kidneys and the protuberance of the liver from the sin offering he caused to fume on the altar just as Yahweh had instructed Moses. 11 The flesh and the hide one burned with fire outside the camp. 12 Then he slew the ascent offering. When the sons of Aaron provided him with the blood, he sprinkled it against the altar round about. 13 For the ascent offering they provided him with its pieces and the head; and he caused them to fume on the altar. 14 He washed the inwards and the shanks and caused them to fume on top of the ascent offering on the altar. 15 Then he came near with the approach present of the people and took the hairy goat of the sin offering which was for the people, slew it and made it a sin offering like the first. 16 He brought near the ascent offering and did it as is the custom. 17 He brought near the approach present, filled his palm from it and caused it to fume on the altar aside from the ascent offering of the morning. 18 Then he slew the bull and the ram, the sacrifice of peace offerings which were for the people. When the sons of Aaron provided him with the blood, he sprinkled it against the altar round about. 19 As for the fat portions from the bull and from the ram, the fat tail and the covering fat, the kidneys and the protuberance of the liver-. 20 they placed the fat portions on top of the chests and caused the fat to fume on the altar. 21 The chests and the right leg Aaron waved as a wave offering before Yahweh just as Yahweh had instructed Moses. 22 Then Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people and blessed them. He descended after he had made the sin offering, the ascent offering and the peace offerings. 23 Now Moses and Aaron went into the tent of appointment; when they came forth, they blessed the people. Then the glory of Yahweh appeared to all the people;" 24 fire came forth from before Yahweh, and it devoured the ascent offering and the fat portions on the altar. When all the people saw it, they were jubilant and fell on their faces.
