Priests Begin Their Ministry
9:1 And it came to pass on the eighth day, that
Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;
9:2 And he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a
sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without
blemish, and offer them before the LORD.
9:3 And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak,
saying, Take ye a kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a
calf and a lamb, both of the first year, without blemish,
for a burnt offering;
9:4 Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to
sacrifice before the LORD; and a meat offering mingled with
oil: for to day the LORD will appear unto you.
9:5 And they brought that which Moses commanded before the
tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation
drew near and stood before the LORD.
9:6 And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD
commanded that ye should do: and the glory of the LORD shall
appear unto you.
9:7 And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer
thy sin offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an
atonement for thyself, and for the people: and offer the
offering of the people, and make an atonement for them; as
the LORD commanded.
9:8 Aaron therefore went unto the altar, and slew the calf
of the sin offering, which was for himself.
9:9 And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and
he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns
of the altar, and poured out the blood at the bottom of the
9:10 But the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the
liver of the sin offering, he burnt upon the altar; as the
LORD commanded Moses.
9:11 And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without
9:12 And he slew the burnt offering; and Aaron's sons
presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled round about
upon the altar.
9:13 And they presented the burnt offering unto him, with
the pieces thereof, and the head: and he burnt them upon the
9:14 And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt
them upon the burnt offering on the altar.
9:15 And he brought the people's offering, and took the
goat, which was the sin offering for the people, and slew
it, and offered it for sin, as the first.
9:16 And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it
according to the manner.
9:17 And he brought the meat offering, and took an handful
thereof, and burnt it upon the altar, beside the burnt
sacrifice of the morning.
9:18 He slew also the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice
of peace offerings, which was for the people: and Aaron's
sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled upon
the altar round about,
9:19 And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump,
and that which covereth the inwards, and the kidneys, and
the caul above the liver:
9:20 And they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt
the fat upon the altar:
9:21 And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for
a wave offering before the LORD; as Moses commanded.
9:22 And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and
blessed them, and came down from offering of the sin
offering, and the burnt offering, and peace offerings.
9:23 And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the
congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the

9:24 And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and
