Consecration of the Priests
29:1 And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto
them to hallow them, to minister unto me in the priest's
office: Take one young bullock, and two rams without
29:2 And unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered
with oil, and wafers unleavened anointed with oil: of
wheaten flour shalt thou make them.
29:3 And thou shalt put them into one basket, and bring
them in the basket, with the bullock and the two rams.
29:4 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door
of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them
29:5 And thou shalt take the garments, and put upon Aaron
the coat, and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the
breastplate, and gird him with the curious girdle of the
29:6 And thou shalt put the mitre upon his head, and put
the holy crown upon the mitre.
29:7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it
upon his head, and anoint him.
29:8 And thou shalt bring his sons, and put coats upon
29:9 And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his
sons, and put the bonnets on them: and the priest's office
shall be theirs for a perpetual statute: and thou shalt
consecrate Aaron and his sons.
29:10 And thou shalt cause a bullock to be brought before
the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron and his sons
shall put their hands upon the head of the bullock.
29:11 And thou shalt kill the bullock before the LORD, by
the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
29:12 And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and
put it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger, and pour
all the blood beside the bottom of the altar.
29:13 And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the
inwards, and the caul that is above the liver, and the two
kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and burn them upon
29:14 But the flesh of the bullock, and his skin, and his
dung, shalt thou burn with fire without the camp: it is a
29:15 Thou shalt also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons
shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
29:16 And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his
blood, and sprinkle it round about upon the altar.
29:17 And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces, and wash the
inwards of him, and his legs, and put them unto his pieces,
and unto his head.
29:18 And thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it
is a burnt offering unto the LORD: it is a sweet savor, an
offering made by fire unto the LORD.
29:19 And thou shalt take the other ram; and Aaron and his
sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
29:20 Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood,
and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon
the tip of the right ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of
their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right
foot, and sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.
29:21 And thou shalt take of the blood that is upon the
altar, and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron,
and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon the
garments of his sons with him: and he shall be hallowed, and
his garments, and his sons, and his sons' garments with him.
29:22 Also thou shalt take of the ram the fat and the rump,
and the fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul above
the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon
them, and the right shoulder; for it is a ram of
29:23 And one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread,
and one wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that
is before the LORD:
29:24 And thou shalt put all in the hands of Aaron, and in
the hands of his sons; and shalt wave them for a wave
offering before the LORD.
29:25 And thou shalt receive them of their hands, and burn
them upon the altar for a burnt offering, for a sweet savor
before the LORD: it is an offering made by fire unto the
29:26 And thou shalt take the breast of the ram of Aaron's
consecration, and wave it for a wave offering before the
LORD: and it shall be thy part.
29:27 And thou shalt sanctify the breast of the wave
offering, and the shoulder of the heave offering, which is
waved, and which is heaved up, of the ram of the
consecration, even of that which is for Aaron, and of that
which is for his sons:
29:28 And it shall be Aaron's and his sons' by a statute
for ever from the children of Israel: for it is an heave
offering: and it shall be an heave offering from the
children of Israel of the sacrifice of their peace
offerings, even their heave offering unto the LORD.
29:29 And the holy garments of Aaron shall be his sons'
after him, to be anointed therein, and to be consecrated in
29:30 And that son that is priest in his stead shall put
them on seven days, when he cometh into the tabernacle of
the congregation to minister in the holy place.
29:31 And thou shalt take the ram of the consecration, and
seethe his flesh in the holy place.
29:32 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the
ram, and the bread that is in the basket by the door of the
tabernacle of the congregation.
29:33 And they shall eat those things wherewith the
atonement was made, to consecrate and to sanctify them: but
a stranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.
29:34 And if ought of the flesh of the consecrations, or of
the bread, remain unto the morning, then thou shalt burn the
remainder with fire: it shall not be eaten, because it is
29:35 And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons,
according to all things which I have commanded thee: seven
days shalt thou consecrate them.
29:36 And thou shalt offer every day a bullock for a sin
offering for atonement: and thou shalt cleanse the altar,
when thou hast made an atonement for it, and thou shalt
anoint it, to sanctify it.
29:37 Seven days thou shalt make an atonement for the
altar, and sanctify it; and it shall be an altar most holy:
whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy.
29:38 Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the
altar; two lambs of the first year day by day continually.
29:39 The one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning; and the
other lamb thou shalt offer at even:
29:40 And with the one lamb a tenth deal of flour mingled
with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil; and the fourth
part of an hin of wine for a drink offering.
29:41 And the other lamb thou shalt offer at even, and
shalt do thereto according to the meat offering of the
morning, and according to the drink offering thereof, for a
sweet savor, an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
29:42 This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout
your generations at the door of the tabernacle of the
congregation before the LORD: where I will meet you, to
speak there unto thee.
29:43 And there I will meet with the children of Israel,
and the tabernacle shall be sanctified by my glory.
29:44 And I will sanctify the tabernacle of the
congregation, and the altar: I will sanctify also both Aaron
and his sons, to minister to me in the priest's office.
29:45 And I will dwell among the children of Israel, and
will be their God.
29:46 And they shall know that I am the LORD their God,
that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may
dwell among them: I am the LORD their God.
