Exodus 29

NSB(i) 1 Jehovah also said: »This is what you must do in order to (consecrate) set Aaron and his sons apart to serve me as priests: Take a young bull that has no defects and two rams that have no defects. 2 »Use the best wheat flour to make some unleavened bread. Bake some with olive oil, some without it, and some in the form of thin cakes brushed with oil. 3 »Put them in a basket and offer them to me when you sacrifice the bull and the two rams. 4 »Bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance of the sacred tent of meeting and have them wash themselves. 5 »Aaron should dress in the priestly shirt and robe under the sacred vest. Put on the vest, the breast piece, and the sash. 6 »Put on his turban with its narrow strip of engraved gold. 7 »Ordain him by pouring olive oil on his head. 8 »Aaron’s sons should dress in their special shirts, caps and sashes. 9 »Then ordain them, because they and their descendants will have a long lasting priesthood. 10 »Lead the bull to the entrance of the sacred tent. Aaron and his sons will lay their hands on its head there. 11 »Slaughter the bull near my altar in front of the tent. 12 »Use a finger to smear some of its blood on each of the four corners of the altar. Pour out the rest of the blood on the ground next to the altar. 13 »Take all the fat that covers the internal organs, the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys with the fat on them, and burn them on the altar. 14 »Burn the bull’s meat, skin, and excrement outside the camp. It is an offering for sin. 15 »Take one of the rams and Aaron and his sons are to put their hands on its head. 16 »Slaughter the ram. Take its blood and sprinkle it all around the altar. 17 »Cut the ram in pieces. Wash its internal organs and its legs, and put them on top of the head and the other pieces. 18 »Burn the whole ram on the altar. It is burnt offering to Jehovah. The odor of this offering pleases me. 19 Take the other ram and Aaron and his sons are to put their hands on its head. 20 »Kill it and 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. Sprinkle the rest of the blood all around the altar. 21 »Take some of the blood that is on the altar and some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron and his clothes and on his sons and their clothes. He, his sons, and their clothes will then be dedicated to me. 22 »Remove the ram’s fat, the fat tail, the fat covering the internal organs, the fat attached to the liver, the two kidneys with the fat on them, and the right thigh. 23 »From the basket of bread which has been offered to me, take one loaf of each kind: one loaf made with olive oil and one made without it and one thin cake. 24 »Put all this food in the hands of Aaron and his sons and have them dedicate it to me as a special gift. 25 »The meat and bread are to be placed on the altar and sent up in smoke with a smell before Jehovah. 26 »You may eat the choice breast from this second ram, but you must first lift them up to show that this meat is dedicated to me. 27 »You shall consecrate the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the heave offering which was waved and which was offered from the ram of ordination, from the one that was for Aaron and from the one that was for his sons. 28 »It will be for Aaron and his sons as their long lasting portion from the sons of Israel. It is a heave offering. It will be a heave offering from the sons of Israel from the sacrifices of their peace offerings, even their heave offering to Jehovah. 29 »The holy garments of Aaron shall be for his sons after him. They may wear them when they are anointed and ordained. 30 »For seven days the one of his sons who is priest in his stead shall put them on when he enters 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 »Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram and the bread that is in the basket, at the doorway of the tent of meeting. 33 »They shall eat those things used for their atonement and their ordination and consecration. A layman shall not eat them, because they are holy. 34 »If any of the flesh of ordination or any of the bread remains until morning it should be burned with fire. It should not be eaten because it is holy. 35 »Do to Aaron and to his sons all that I have commanded you. Ordain them for seven days. 36 »Offer a bull as a sin offering for atonement each day. Purify the altar when you make atonement for it. Anoint it to consecrate it. 37 »Make atonement for the altar and consecrate it for seven days. Then the altar shall be most holy, and whatever touches the altar shall be holy. 38 »Now this is what you shall offer on the altar: two one year old lambs each day, continuously. 39 »Offer one lamb in the morning and offer the other lamb at twilight. 40 »Make an offering of eight cups of flour mixed with one quart of virgin olive oil with the first lamb. Offer one quart of wine for a drink offering with the other lamb. 41 »You will offer the other lamb at twilight. Offer it with the same grain offering and the same drink offering as in the morning, for a soothing aroma, an offering by fire to Jehovah. 42 »It shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the doorway of the tent of meeting before Jehovah. That is where I will meet with you to speak to you. 43 »I will meet there with the sons of Israel, and it shall be consecrated by my glory. 44 »I will consecrate the tent of meeting and the altar. I will also consecrate Aaron and his sons to minister as priests to me. 45 »I will dwell among the sons of Israel and will be their God. 46 »They shall know that I am Jehovah their God who brought them out of the land of Egypt, that I might dwell among them. I am Jehovah their God!
