Leviticus 9



1 And it was, on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;

2 and he said to Aaron, Take for thee a calf, a son of the herd, for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt·​·offering, perfect, and offer them before Jehovah.

3 And to the sons of Israel thou shalt speak, saying, Take ye a male goat of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both the son of a year and perfect for a burnt·​·offering;

4 and an ox and a ram for peace·​·offerings, to sacrifice before Jehovah; and a gift·​·offering mixed with oil; for today Jehovah will be seen of you.

5 And they took that which Moses commanded before the Tabernacle of the congregation; and all the congregation came·​·near and stood before Jehovah.

6 And Moses said, This is the word which Jehovah commanded that you should do; and the glory of Jehovah shall be seen of you.

7 And Moses said to Aaron, Go·​·near to the altar, and make thy sin offering, and thy burnt·​·offering, and make· an ·atonement for thyself, and for the people; and make the offering of the people, and make· an ·atonement for them; as Jehovah commanded.

8 And Aaron came·​·near to the altar, and slaughtered the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself.

9 And the sons of Aaron brought· the blood ·near to him; and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the foundation of the altar:

10 but the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul from the liver of the sin offering, he burnt·​·for·​·incense upon the altar; as Jehovah commanded Moses.

11 And the flesh and the skin he burnt·​·up with fire outside the camp.

12 And he slaughtered the burnt·​·offering; and the sons of Aaron presented to him the blood, and he sprinkled it all around on the altar.

13 And they presented the burnt·​·offering to him, with the sections of it, and the head; and he burnt· them ·for·​·incense on the altar.

14 And he did bathe the inwards and the legs, and burnt· them ·for·​·incense on the burnt·​·offering on the altar.

15 And he brought·​·near the offering of the people, and took the male goat, which was the sin offering for the people, and slaughtered it, and offered it for sin, as the first.

16 And he offered the burnt·​·offering, and made it according·​·to the judgment.

17 And he offered the gift·​·offering, and filled his palm with it, and burnt· it ·for·​·incense on the altar, apart from the burnt·​·offering of the morning.

18 And he slaughtered the ox and the ram for a sacrifice of the peace·​·offerings, which was for the people; and sons of Aaron presented to him the blood, and he sprinkled it all around upon the altar,

19 and the fat from the ox and from the ram, the tail, and the covering, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver;

20 and they set the fat on the chest portions, and he burnt· the fat ·for·​·incense on the altar;

21 and the chest portions and the right hind·​·quarter Aaron waved for a waving before Jehovah; as Moses commanded.

22 And Aaron lifted·​·up his hand toward the people, and blessed them, and came·​·down from making of the sin offering, and the burnt·​·offering, and the peace·​·offerings.

23 And Moses and Aaron came to the Tabernacle of the congregation, and went·​·out, and blessed the people; and the glory of Jehovah was seen by all the people.

24 And there came· a fire ·out from before Jehovah, and devoured upon the altar the burnt·​·offering and the fat; which when all the people saw, they shouted·​·aloud, and fell on their faces.
