1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and a bull for the sin offering, and two rams, and a basket of unleavened bread, 3 and gather all the congregation together at the entrance of the tent of meeting. 4 And Moses did as the Lord commanded him, and the assembly was gathered together at the entrance of the tent of meeting.
5 Moses said to the congregation, “This is the thing which the Lord commanded to be done.” 6 Moses brought Aaron and his sons and washed them with water. 7 Then he put the tunic on him, and tied the sash around him, and clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him, and he girded him with the decorative band of the ephod and bound the ephod to him. 8 He put the breastplate on him. He also put the Urim and the Thummim in the breastplate. 9 Then he put the turban upon his head. Also on the turban at the front he put the golden plate, the holy crown, as the Lord commanded Moses.
10 Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it, and sanctified them. 11 He sprinkled oil on the altar seven times and anointed the altar and all its vessels, both the laver and its stand, to sanctify them. 12 Then he poured some of the anointing oil on the head of Aaron and anointed him to sanctify him. 13 Moses brought the sons of Aaron and put tunics on them, and girded them with sashes, and put headbands on them, as the Lord commanded Moses.
14 He brought the bull for the sin offering, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the bull for the sin offering. 15 He slaughtered it, and Moses took the blood, and put it on the horns of the altar around it with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured the blood at the base of the altar, and sanctified it to make reconciliation on it. 16 He took all the fat that was on the entrails, and the appendage above the liver, and the two kidneys with their fat, and Moses burned them on the altar. 17 But the bull, and its hide, its flesh, and its refuse he burned with fire outside the camp, as the Lord commanded Moses.
18 Then he brought the ram for the burnt offering, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram. 19 He killed it, and Moses sprinkled the blood on the sides of the altar. 20 He cut the ram into pieces, and Moses burned the head, the pieces, and the fat. 21 He washed the entrails and the legs in water, and Moses burned the whole ram on the altar. It was a burnt offering for a pleasing aroma, and a food offering made by fire to the Lord, as the Lord commanded Moses.
22 Next he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram. 23 He slaughtered it, and Moses took some of its blood and put it on the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. 24 He brought the sons of Aaron, and Moses put some of the blood on the tips of their right ears, and on the thumbs of their right hands, and on the big toes of their right feet. Then Moses sprinkled the blood on the sides of the altar. 25 He took the fat, and the fatty tail, and all the fat that was on the entrails, and the appendage above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right thigh, 26 and out of the basket of unleavened bread that was before the Lord he took one unleavened cake, and a cake of oiled bread, and one wafer and put them on the fat and on the right thigh. 27 And he put all these on the hands of Aaron and on the hands of his sons and waved them for a wave offering before the Lord. 28 Then Moses took them from off their hands and burned them on the altar with the burnt offering. This was a consecration for a pleasing aroma, an offering made by fire to the Lord. 29 Moses took the breast and waved it for a wave offering before the Lord. This part of the ram of consecration was for Moses, as the Lord commanded Moses.
30 Then Moses took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood which was on the altar and sprinkled it on Aaron, and on his garments, and on his sons, and on the garments of his sons with him and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and the garments of his sons with him.
31 Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, “Boil the flesh at the entrance of the tent of meeting and eat it there with the bread that is in the basket of consecrations just as I commanded, saying, ‘Aaron and his sons shall eat it.’ 32 That which remains of the flesh and of the bread you shall burn up. 33 You shall not go out of the door of the tent of meeting for seven days, until the days of your consecration are at an end, for your consecration will take seven days. 34 As he has done this day, so the Lord has commanded what is to be done to make atonement for you. 35 Therefore you shall abide at the entrance of the tent of meeting day and night for seven days and keep the charge of the Lord that you do not die, for so I have been commanded.”
36 So Aaron and his sons did all things which the Lord commanded by the hand of Moses.
1 And it came to pass on the eighth day that Moses called Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel. 2 Then he said to Aaron, “Take a young calf for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before the Lord. 3 To the children of Israel you shall speak, saying, ‘Take a male goat for a sin offering, and a calf and a lamb—both a year old without blemish—for a burnt offering, 4 also an ox and a ram for peace offerings to sacrifice before the Lord, and a grain offering mixed with oil. For today the Lord will appear to you.’”
5 They brought that which Moses commanded before the tent of meeting, and the entire congregation drew near and stood before the Lord. 6 Moses said, “This is the thing which the Lord commanded that you should do; then the glory of the Lord shall appear to you.”
7 Then Moses said to Aaron, “Go to the altar, and offer your sin offering and your burnt offering, and make atonement for yourself and for the people, and offer the sacrifice of the people, and make atonement for them, as the Lord commanded.”
8 Aaron therefore went to the altar and slaughtered the calf of the sin offering which was for himself. 9 The sons of Aaron brought the blood to him, and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it on the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the base of the altar. 10 But the fat, the kidneys, and the appendage above the liver of the sin offering he burned on the altar, as the Lord commanded Moses. 11 The flesh and the hide he burned with fire outside the camp.
12 He slaughtered the burnt offering, and the sons of Aaron presented the blood to him, which he sprinkled on the sides of the altar. 13 They presented the burnt offering to him, with its pieces, and the head, and he burned them on the altar. 14 He then washed the entrails and the legs and burned them with the burnt offering on the altar.
15 He brought the people’s offering, and took the goat which was the sin offering for the people, and slaughtered it, and offered it for sin as the first offering.
16 And he brought the burnt offering and offered it according to its regulation. 17 Then he brought the grain offering, took a handful of it, and burned it on the altar, besides the burnt sacrifice of the morning.
18 He slaughtered the ox and the ram as a sacrifice of peace offerings for the people, and the sons of Aaron presented the blood to him, which he sprinkled on the sides of the altar, 19 and the fat of the ox and of the ram, the fatty tail, and that which covers the entrails, and the kidneys, and the appendage above the liver. 20 They put the fat pieces on the breasts, and he burned the fat on the altar. 21 But the breasts and the right thigh Aaron waved for a wave offering before the Lord just as Moses commanded.
22 Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed them, and came down from offering the sin offering, the burnt offering, and peace offerings.
23 Moses and Aaron went into the tent of meeting, and when they came out they blessed the people, and the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. 24 A fire came out from before the Lord, and it consumed the burnt offering and the fat that were on the altar. When all the people saw this, they shouted and fell on their faces.
1 Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it, and put incense on it, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which He did not command them to do. 2 Then a fire came out from the Lord and devoured them, and they died before the Lord. 3 Then Moses said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord spoke, saying:
‘I will be sanctified
by those who come near Me;
and before all the people
I will be glorified.’”
And Aaron held his peace.
4 Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said to them, “Come near, and carry your brothers from before the sanctuary out of the camp.” 5 So they went near, and carried them in their tunics out of the camp as Moses had said.
6 Moses said to Aaron, and to Eleazar and Ithamar his sons, “Do not let your hair be loosely disheveled, nor rend your clothes, lest you die, and lest wrath come upon all the people. Instead, let your brothers, the whole house of Israel, mourn the burning which the Lord has caused. 7 You shall not go out from the entrance of the tent of meeting, lest you die, for the anointing oil of the Lord is upon you.” And they did according to the word of Moses.
8 The Lord spoke to Aaron, saying: 9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, you or your sons with you, when you go into the tent of meeting, lest you die. It shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations, 10 so that you may differentiate between what is holy and common and between what is unclean and clean. 11 And so you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes that the Lord has spoken to them by the hand of Moses.
12 Moses spoke to Aaron, and to Eleazar and Ithamar, his sons who were left: Take the grain offering that remains of the food offerings of the Lord made by fire and eat it without leaven beside the altar. For it is most holy. 13 And you shall eat it in a holy place, because it is your due and your sons’ due from the food sacrifices of the Lord made by fire. For so I have been commanded. 14 The breast that is waved and the thigh that is contributed you shall eat in a clean place, you, and your sons, and your daughters with you, for they are your due and your sons’ due which are given out of the sacrifices of peace offerings of the children of Israel. 15 The thigh that is contributed and the breast that is waved they shall bring with the fat pieces of the food offerings made by fire to wave them as a wave offering before the Lord, and it shall be yours and your sons’ with you as a perpetual statute, as the Lord has commanded.
16 Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering and saw it was burned up. And he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron who were left alive, saying, 17 “Why have you not eaten the sin offering in the sacred area, knowing that it is most holy and God has given it to you to bear the iniquity of the congregation to make atonement for them before the Lord? 18 Its blood was not brought into the inner part of the sanctuary. Indeed you should have eaten it in the sanctuary as I commanded.”
19 Aaron said to Moses, “Today they have offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the Lord, and such things have happened to me! If I had eaten the sin offering today, should it have been accepted in the sight of the Lord?” 20 And when Moses heard that, he approved.
31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 Before Him will be gathered all nations, and He will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats. 33 He will set the sheep at His right hand, but the goats at the left.
34 “Then the King will say to those at His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you since the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in. 36 I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me, I was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 And when did we see You sick or in prison and come to You?’
40 “The King will answer, ‘Truly I say to you, as you have done it for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you have done it for Me.
41 “Then He will say to those at the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the eternal fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, I was naked and you did not clothe Me, I was sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
44 “Then they also will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not serve You?’
45 “He will answer, ‘Truly I say to you, as you did it not for one of the least of these, you did it not for Me.’
46 “And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
