The Offerings for the People

9:15 Then he presented the people’s offering. He took the sin offering male goat which was for the people, slaughtered it, and performed a decontamination rite with it18 like the first one.19 9:16 He then presented the burnt offering, and did it according to the standard regulation.20 9:17 Next he presented the grain offering, filled his hand with some of it, and offered it up in smoke on the altar in addition to the morning burnt offering.21 9:18 Then he slaughtered the ox and the ram—the peace offering sacrifices which were for the people—and Aaron’s sons handed22 the blood to him and he splashed it against the altar’s sides. 9:19 As for the fat parts from the ox and from the ram23 (the fatty tail, the fat covering the entrails,24 the kidneys, and the protruding lobe of the liver), 9:20 they25 set those on the breasts and he offered the fat parts up in smoke on the altar. 9:21 Finally Aaron waved the breasts and the right thigh as a wave offering before the Lord just as Moses had commanded.

9:22 Then Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people and blessed them and descended from making the sin offering, the burnt offering, and the peace offering. 9:23 Moses and Aaron then entered into the Meeting Tent. When they came out, they blessed the people, and the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. 9:24 Then fire went out from the presence of the Lord26 and consumed the burnt offering and the fat parts on the altar, and all the people saw it, so they shouted loudly and fell down with their faces to the ground.27
