Aaron and his descendants. Give the right thigh of your peace offering to
the priest as a gift. The right thigh must always be given to the priest who
offers the blood and the fat of the peace offering. For I have reserved the
breast of the special offering and the right thigh of the sacred offering for
the priests. It is the permanent right of Aaron and his descendants to share
in the peace offerings brought by the people of Israel. This is their rightful share. The special gifts presented to the Lord have been reserved for
Aaron and his descendants from the time they were set apart to serve the
Lord as priests. On the day they were anointed, the Lord commanded
the Israelites to give these portions to the priests as their permanent share
from generation to generation.”
These are the instructions for the burnt offering, the grain offering, the
sin offering, and the guilt offering, as well as the ordination offering and
the peace offering. The Lord gave these instructions to Moses on Mount
Sinai when he commanded the Israelites to present their offerings to the
Lord in the wilderness of Sinai.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Bring Aaron and his sons, along with their
sacred garments, the anointing oil, the bull for the sin offering, the two

what the Lord has commanded us to do!” Then he presented Aaron and
his sons and washed them with water. He put the official tunic on Aaron
and tied the sash around his waist. He dressed him in the robe, placed the
ephod on him, and attached the ephod securely with its decorative sash.
Then Moses placed the chestpiece on Aaron and put the Urim and the
Thummim inside it. He placed the turban on Aaron’s head and attached
the gold ­medallion—­the badge of ­holiness—­to the front of the turban,
just as the Lord had commanded him.
Then Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the Tabernacle and
everything in it, making them holy. He sprinkled the oil on the altar
seven times, anointing it and all its utensils, as well as the washbasin and
its stand, making them holy. Then he poured some of the anointing oil
on Aaron’s head, anointing him and making him holy for his work. Next
Moses presented Aaron’s sons. He clothed them in their tunics, tied their
sashes around them, and put their special head coverings on them, just as
the Lord had commanded him.
Then Moses presented the bull for the sin offering. Aaron and his sons
