5 “You shall take the garments, and put on Aaron the atunic and bthe robe of the ephod and cthe ephod and dthe 1breastpiece, and gird him with the skillfully ewoven band of the ephod;

6 and you shall set the aturban on his head and put bthe holy crown on the turban.

7 “Then you shall take athe anointing oil and pour it on his head and anoint him.

8 “You shall bring his sons and put atunics on them.

9 “You shall gird them with asashes, Aaron and his sons, and bind 1caps on them, and they shall have bthe priesthood by a perpetual statute. So you shall 2cordain Aaron and his sons.

11 “You shall slaughter the bull before the Lord at the doorway of the tent of meeting.

12 “You shall atake some of the blood of the bull and put it on bthe horns of the altar with your finger; and you shall pour out all the blood at the base of the altar.

13 “You shall atake all the fat that covers the entrails and the 1lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and the fat that is on them, and offer them up in smoke on the altar.

14 “But athe flesh of the bull and its hide and its refuse, you shall burn with fire outside the camp; it is a sin offering.

15aYou shall also take the one ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram;

16 and you shall slaughter the ram and shall take its blood and sprinkle it around on the altar.

17 “Then you shall cut the ram into its pieces, and wash its entrails and its legs, and put them 1with its pieces and 2its head.

18 “You shall offer up in smoke the whole ram on the altar; it is a burnt offering to the Lord: ait is a soothing aroma, an offering by fire to the Lord.

19 “Then ayou shall take the 1other ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram.

20 “You shall slaughter the ram, and take some of its blood and put it on the lobe of Aaron’s right ear and on the lobes of his sons’ right ears and on the thumbs of their right hands and on the big toes of their right feet, and sprinkle the rest of the blood around on the altar.

21 “Then you shall take some of the blood that is on the altar and some of the aanointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron and on his garments and on his sons and on his sons’ garments with him; so he and his garments shall be consecrated, as well as his sons and his sons’ garments with him.

22 “You shall also take the fat from the ram and the fat tail, and the fat that covers the entrails and the 1lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and the fat that is on them and the right thigh (for it is a ram of 2ordination),

23 and one cake of bread and aone cake of bread mixed with oil and one wafer from the basket of unleavened bread which is set before the Lord;

24 and you shall put 1all these 2in the 3hands of Aaron and 2in the 3hands of his sons, and shall wave them as a wave offering before the Lord.

25 “aYou shall take them from their hands, and offer them up in smoke on the altar on the burnt offering for a soothing aroma before the Lord; it is an offering by fire to the Lord.

26 “Then you shall take athe breast of Aaron’s ram of 1ordination, and wave it as a wave offering before the Lord; and it shall be your portion.

27 “You shall consecrate the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the heave offering which was waved and which was 1offered from the ram of 2ordination, from the one which was for Aaron and from the one which was for his sons.

28 “It shall be for Aaron and his sons as their portion forever from the sons of Israel, for it is a heave offering; and it shall be a heave offering from the sons of Israel from the sacrifices of their peace offerings, even their heave offering to the Lord.

29aThe holy garments of Aaron shall be for his sons after him, 1that in them they may be anointed and ordained.

30 “For seven days the one of his sons who is priest in his stead shall put them on when he enters the tent of meeting to minister in the holy place.

Food of the Priests

31 “You shall take the ram of 1ordination and aboil its flesh in a holy place.

32 “Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram and the bread that is in the basket, at the doorway of the tent of meeting.

33 “Thus athey shall eat 1those things by which atonement was made 2at their ordination and consecration; but a 3blayman shall not eat them, because they are holy.

34 “aIf any of the flesh of 1ordination or any of the bread remains until morning, then you shall burn the remainder with fire; it shall not be eaten, because it is holy.

35 “Thus you shall do to Aaron and to his sons, according to all that I have commanded you; you shall 1ordain them through aseven days.

36 “aEach day you shall offer a bull as a sin offering for atonement, and you shall 1purify the altar when you make atonement 2for it, and byou shall anoint it to consecrate it.

37 “For seven days you shall make atonement 1for the altar and consecrate it; then athe altar shall be most holy, and whatever touches the altar shall be holy.

38 “Now athis is what you shall offer on the altar: two one year old lambs each day, continuously.

39 “The aone lamb you shall offer in the morning and the 1other lamb you shall offer at 2twilight;

40 and there shall be one-tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one-fourth of a hin of beaten oil, and one-fourth of a hin of wine for a drink offering with one lamb.

41 “The 1other lamb you shall offer at 2twilight, and shall offer with it 3the same grain offering and 4the same drink offering as in the morning, for a soothing aroma, an offering by fire to the Lord.

42 “It shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the doorway of the tent of meeting before the Lord, awhere I will meet with you, to speak to you there.

43 “I will meet there with the sons of Israel, and it shall be consecrated by My glory.

44 “I will consecrate the tent of meeting and the altar; I will also consecrate Aaron and his sons to minister as priests to Me.
