the offerings at the Tabernacle entrance, and eat it there, along with the
bread that is in the basket of offerings for the ordination, just as I commanded when I said, ‘Aaron and his sons will eat it.’ Any meat or bread
that is left over must then be burned up. You must not leave the Tabernacle
entrance for seven days, for that is when the ordination ceremony will
be completed. Everything we have done today was commanded by the
Lord in order to purify you, making you right with him. Now stay at the
entrance of the Tabernacle day and night for seven days, and do everything
the Lord requires. If you fail to do this, you will die, for this is what the
Lord has commanded.” So Aaron and his sons did everything the Lord
had commanded through Moses.
After the ordination ceremony, on the eighth day, Moses called together
Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel. He said to Aaron, “Take a
young bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering, both without
defects, and present them to the Lord. Then tell the Israelites, ‘Take a
male goat for a sin offering, and take a calf and a lamb, both a year old and
without defects, for a burnt offering. Also take a bull and a ram for a peace
offering and flour moistened with olive oil for a grain offering. Present all
these offerings to the Lord because the Lord will appear to you today.’”
So the people presented all these things at the entrance of the Tabernacle, just as Moses had commanded. Then the whole community came
forward and stood before the Lord. And Moses said, “This is what the
Lord has commanded you to do so that the glory of the Lord may appear to you.”
Then Moses said to Aaron, “Come to the altar and sacrifice your sin
offering and your burnt offering to purify yourself and the people. Then
present the offerings of the people to purify them, making them right with
the Lord, just as he has commanded.”
So Aaron went to the altar and slaughtered the calf as a sin offering for
himself. His sons brought him the blood, and he dipped his finger in it
and put it on the horns of the altar. He poured out the rest of the blood
at the base of the altar. Then he burned on the altar the fat, the kidneys,
and the long lobe of the liver from the sin offering, just as the Lord had
commanded Moses. The meat and the hide, however, he burned outside
the camp.
Next Aaron slaughtered the animal for the burnt offering. His sons
brought him the blood, and he splattered it against all sides of the altar.
Then they handed him each piece of the burnt offering, including the
head, and he burned them on the altar. Then he washed the internal organs and the legs and burned them on the altar along with the rest of the
burnt offering.
