Exodus 29

ISV(i) 1 "This is what you shall do to them to consecrate them to serve me as priests: Take a young bull, two rams without blemish, 2 unleavened bread, unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers spread with oil, which you are to make from fine wheat flour. 3 You shall put them in one basket and bring them in the basket along with the bull and the two rams. 4 You shall bring Aaron and his sons to the doorway of the Tent of Meeting, and wash them with water. 5 Take the garments and clothe Aaron with the tunic, the robe of the ephod, the ephod, and the breast piece, and then gird him with the skillfully woven band of the ephod. 6 Then put the turban on his head, and place the holy crown on the turban. 7 You shall take the anointing oil, pour it on his head, and anoint him. 8 Then you shall bring his sons and clothe them with tunics. 9 You shall gird Aaron and his sons with sashes and tie headdresses on them. The priesthood shall belong to them by perpetual ordinance, and you shall ordain Aaron and his sons. 10 "You shall bring the bull in front of the Tent of Meeting, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the bull. 11 Then you shall slaughter the bull before the LORD at the doorway of the Tent of Meeting. 12 Take some of the blood of the bull, put it on the horns of the altar with your finger, and pour out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar. 13 You shall take all the fat that covers the entrails, the lobe of the liver, the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them and send them up in smoke on the altar. 14 You shall burn the flesh of the bull, its hide, and its refuse with fire outside the camp. It is a sin offering. 15 "You shall take one of the rams, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on its head. 16 Then you shall slaughter the ram, take its blood, and scatter it around the altar. 17 You shall cut the ram into pieces, wash its entrails and legs, put them on the altar along with the pieces and its head, 18 and send up the whole ram in smoke on the altar. It is a burnt offering to the LORD; it's a soothing aroma, an offering by fire to the LORD. 19 "You shall take the other ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram. 20 You shall slaughter the ram, take some of its blood, and put it on the lobe of Aaron's right ear, the lobe of his sons' right ears, the thumbs of their right hands, and the big toes of their right feet. Then you shall scatter the rest of the blood around the altar. 21 You shall take some of the blood which is on the altar, along with some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron and his garments, and on his sons and their garments. He shall be consecrated with his garments, along with his sons and their garments. 22 "You shall take the fat from the ram, the fat tail, the fat that covers the entrails, the lobe of the liver, the two kidneys and the fat that is on them, the right thigh (for it's a ram of ordination), 23 and one loaf of bread, one cake of bread mixed with oil, and one wafer out of the basket of unleavened bread that is before the LORD. 24 You shall put all of these in the hands of Aaron and in the hands of his sons, and present them as a wave offering before the LORD. 25 Then you shall take them from their hands and send them up in smoke on the altar on top of the burnt offering for a soothing aroma before the LORD. It is an offering by fire to the LORD. 26 "You shall take the breast of the ram of Aaron's ordination, and present it as a wave offering before the LORD, and it shall be your portion. 27 You shall consecrate the portion of the ram of ordination that belongs to Aaron and his sons: the breast of the wave offering that was waved and the thigh of the presented offering that was presented. 28 These offerings from the Israelites shall be a perpetual ordinance for Aaron and his sons. They are presented offerings, and they shall be presented offerings from the Israelites out of their peace offerings. They are presented offerings to the LORD. 29 "The holy garments of Aaron shall be for his sons after him so that they may be anointed in them and ordained in them. 30 Aaron's son who is priest in his place shall wear them for seven days when he comes into the Tent of Meeting to minister in the Holy Place. 31 "You shall take the ram of ordination and boil its flesh in a holy place. 32 Then Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram along with the bread that is in the basket at the doorway of the Tent of Meeting. 33 They shall eat these things by which atonement was made at their ordination to consecrate them, but an unqualified person shall not eat because these things are holy. 34 If any of the flesh of the ordination ram or any of the bread is left until morning, you shall burn what is left with fire. Because it's holy, what remains is not to be eaten. 35 You shall do this for Aaron and his sons, just as I've commanded you. You shall ordain them for seven days, 36 and every day you shall offer a bull as a sin offering for atonement. Offer the sin offering on the altar when you make atonement for it and anoint the altar to consecrate it. 37 You shall make atonement for the altar for seven days and consecrate it. It will be most holy, and whatever touches it will be holy." 38 "This is what you shall offer on the altar continually: two one year old lambs each day. 39 "You shall offer one lamb in the morning and the other at twilight, 40 and there shall be a tenth measure of choice flour mixed with one quart of oil extracted by hand, and one quart of wine as a drink offering for one lamb. 41 You shall offer the other lamb at twilight with the same grain offering and drink offering as in the morning. You shall offer it as a soothing aroma, an offering by fire to the LORD. 42 It shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the doorway to the Tent of Meeting before the LORD, where I'll meet with you to speak to you there. 43 "I'll meet there with the Israelites, and it shall be consecrated by my glory. 44 I'll consecrate the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and I'll consecrate Aaron and his sons to serve as my priests. 45 I'll dwell among the Israelites, and I'll be their God. 46 They shall know that I am the LORD their God who brought them out of Egypt so I might dwell among them. I am the LORD your God."
