9Leviticus

1 On the eighth day Moses summoned Aaron and his sons and the Israelite elders.

Aaron offers sacrifice. Lv.9.1-24
2 He said to Aaron, 'Take for yourself a bull-calf for a sin-offering and a ram for a whole-offering, both without blemish, and present them before the LORD.  
3 Then bid the Israelites take a he-goat for a sin-offering, a calf and a lamb, both yearlings without blemish, for a whole-offering,  
4 and a bull and a ram for shared-offerings to be sacrificed before the LORD, together with a grain-offering mixed with oil. This day the LORD will appear to you.'

 
5 They brought what Moses had commanded to the front of the Tent of the Presence, and all the community approached and stood before the LORD.

 
6 Moses said, 'This is what the LORD has commanded you to do, so that the glory of the LORD may appear to you.  
7 Come near to the altar,' he said to Aaron; 'prepare your sin-offering and your whole-offering and make expiation for yourself and for your household. Then prepare the offering of the people and make expiation for them, as the LORD has commanded.'

 
8 So Aaron came near to the altar and slaughtered the calf, which was his sin-offering.  
9 The sons of Aaron presented the blood to him, and he dipped his finger in the blood and put it on the horns of the altar. The rest of the blood he poured out at the base of the altar.  
10 Part of the sin-offering, the fat, the kidneys, and the long lobe of the liver, he burnt on the altar as the LORD had commanded Moses,  
11 but the flesh and the skin he destroyed by fire outside the camp.  
12 Then he slaughtered the whole-offering; his sons handed him the blood, and he flung it against the altar all round.  
13 They handed him the pieces of the whole-offering and the head, and he burnt them on the altar.  
14 He washed the entrails and the shins and burnt them on the altar, on top of the whole-offering.

 
15 He then brought forward the offering of the people. He took the he-goat, the people's sin-offering, slaughtered it and performed the rite of the sin-offering as he had previously done for himself.  
16 He presented the whole-offering and prepared it in the manner prescribed.  
17 He brought forward the grain-offering, took a handful of it and burnt it on the altar, in addition to the morning whole-offering.  
18 He slaughtered the bull and the ram, the shared-offerings of the people. His sons handed him the blood, and he flung it against the altar all round.  
19 But the fatty parts of the bull, the fat-tail of the ram, the fat covering the entrails, and the two kidneys with the fat upon them, and the long lobe of the liver,  
20 all this fat they first put on the breasts of the animals and then burnt it on the altar.  
21 Aaron presented the breasts and the right leg as a special gift before the LORD, as Moses had commanded.

 
22 Then Aaron lifted up his hands towards the people and pronounced the blessing over them. He came down from performing the rites of the sin-offering, the whole-offering, and the shared-offerings.  
23 Moses and Aaron entered the Tent of the Presence, and when they came out, they blessed the people, and the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people.  
24 Fire came out from before the LORD and consumed the whole-offering and the fatty parts on the altar. All the people saw, and they shouted and fell on their faces.
