Inauguration of Tabernacle Worship
9:1 On the eighth day1 Moses summoned2 Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel, 9:2 and said to Aaron, “Take for yourself a bull calf for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering, both flawless, and present them before the Lord. 9:3 Then tell the Israelites: ‘Take a male goat3 for a sin offering and a calf and lamb, both a year old and flawless,4 for a burnt offering, 9:4 and an ox and a ram for peace offerings to sacrifice before the Lord, and a grain offering mixed with olive oil, for today the Lord is going to appear5 to you.’ ” 9:5 So they took what Moses had commanded to the front of6 the Meeting Tent and the whole congregation presented them and stood before the Lord. 9:6 Then Moses said, “This is what the Lord has commanded you to do7 so that the glory of the Lord may appear8 to you.” 9:7 Moses then said to Aaron, “Approach the altar and make your sin offering and your burnt offering, and make atonement on behalf of yourself and on behalf of the people;9 and also make the people’s offering and make atonement on behalf of them just as the Lord has commanded.”
