1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and a bullock for the sin offering, and two rams, and a basket of unleavened bread;

3 and assemble thou all the congregation to the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation.

4 And Moses did as Jehovah commanded him; and the congregation was assembled to the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation.

5 And Moses said to the congregation, This is the word which Jehovah commanded to be done.

6 And Moses brought· Aaron and his sons ·near, and bathed them with water.

7 And he put upon him the tunic, and girded him with the belt, and clothed him with the mantle and put the ephod upon him, and he girded him with the girding of the ephod, and bound it to him with it.

8 And he set the breastplate upon him; and he put into the breastplate the Urim and the Thummim.

9 And he set the miter upon his head; and he set upon the miter next·​·to his face the gold plate, the holy crown; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

10 And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the Habitation and all that was in it, and sanctified them.

11 And he spattered of it on the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all its vessels, and the laver and its base, to sanctify them.

12 And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.

13 And Moses brought· the sons of Aaron ·near, and clothed them with tunics, and girded them with belts, and bound·​·up turbans upon them; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

14 And he presented the bullock of the sin offering; and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock of the sin offering.

15 And he slaughtered it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round·​·about with his finger, and purged the altar, and poured the blood at the foundation of the altar, and sanctified it, to make·​·atonement upon it.

16 And he took all the fat that was on the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and Moses burned· it ·for·​·incense on the altar.

17 But the bullock, and its skin, and its flesh, and its dung, he burnt·​·up with fire outside the camp; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

18 And he brought· the ram ·near for the burnt·​·offering; and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

19 And he slaughtered it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar all around.

20 And he sectioned the ram into its sections; and Moses burnt· the head ·for·​·incense, and the sections, and the fat.

21 And he bathed the inwards and the legs in water; and Moses burnt·​·for·​·incense all of the ram on the altar; it was a burnt·​·offering for a restful smell, it was a fire·​·offering to Jehovah; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

22 And he brought· the second ram ·near, the ram of infilling; and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

23 And he slaughtered it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it on the lobe of the right ear of Aaron, and on the thumb of his right hand, and upon the big·​·toe of his right foot.

24 And he caused Aaron’s sons to come·​·near, and Moses put some of the blood on the lobe of their right ear, and on the thumb of their right hand, and on the big·​·toe of their right foot; and Moses sprinkled the blood on the altar all around.

25 And he took the fat, and the tail, and all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right hind·​·quarter;

26 and from the basket of unleavened things, that was before Jehovah, he took one unleavened cake, and one cake of bread with oil, and one wafer, and set them on the fat, and on the right hind·​·quarter;

27 and he put all upon Aaron’s hands, and upon his sons’ hands, and waved them for a wave offering before Jehovah.

28 And Moses took them from upon their palms, and burnt· them ·for·​·incense on the altar upon the burnt·​·offering; they were infillings for a restful smell: it is a fire·​·offering to Jehovah.

29 And Moses took the chest portion, and waved it for a wave offering before Jehovah; for of the ram of infilling it was Moses’ portion; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

30 And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was upon the altar, and spattered it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sons’ garments with him; and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons’ garments with him.

31 And Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, Cook the flesh at the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation; and there eat it with the bread that is in the basket of infilling, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it.

32 And the remainder of the flesh and of the bread you shall burn·​·up with fire.

33 And you shall not go·​·out of the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation for seven days, until the day of the fulfillment of the days of your infilling; because seven days He shall fill your hand.

34 As He has done this day, so Jehovah has commanded to do, to make· an ·atonement for you.

35 And you shall sit at the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of Jehovah, and you shall· not ·die; for so I am commanded.

36 And Aaron and his sons did all the things which Jehovah commanded by the hand of Moses.

Explanation of Leviticus 8      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-5. The general subject of the whole chapter is the glorification of the Lord, and, at the same time, the regeneration of man.

Verse 6. And first, with regard to the Lord, there is the putting off of the Human from the mother, and with regard to man purification from actual evil by repentance

Verses 7-13. Then it follows that there is the reception of Divine Truths in successive order, and the conjunction of truth with good giving wisdom and enlightenment

Verses 14-17. Also the natural affections must be purified, in order that they may be brought into harmony with the higher affections

Verses 18-21. Moreover, the spiritual affections must be wholly consecrated to the Lord, and thus the good of innocence must be realized internally as well as externally

Verses 22-30. And now, therefore, the regenerated man is fully inaugurated into the realization of good, and thus into a life of good acting by truth, and consequently into the active life of charity followed by the reciprocal conjunction of truth with good

Verses 31-36. After which there is the full and perpetual appropriation of good without any admixture of evil; and thus is accomplished the glorification of the Lord and the regeneration of man, first by complete separation from all evil, and secondly by the reception of all good and truth embodied in perfect obedience, according to the laws of Divine Order by influx from the Lord and by co-operation on the part of man.
