And these are the things which thou shalt do to them: thou shalt sanctify them, so that they shall serve me in the priesthood; and thou shalt take one young calf from the herd, and two unblemished rams 2and unleavened loaves kneaded with oil, and unleavened cakes anointed with oil: thou shalt make them of fine flour of wheat. 3And thou shalt put them on one basket, and thou shalt offer them on the basket, and the young calf and the two rams. 4And thou shall bring Aaron and his sons to the doors of the tabernacle of testimony and thou shalt wash them with water. 5 And having taken the garments thou shalt put on Aaron thy brother both the full-length robe and the ephod and the oracle; and thou shalt
15And thou shalt make the oracle of judgment, the work of the embroiderer: in keeping with the ephod, thou shalt make it of gold, and blue and purple, and spun scarlet, and fine linen spun. 16Thou shalt make it square: it shall be double; of a span the length of it, and of a span the breadth. 17And thou shalt interweave with it a texture of four rows of stone; there shall be a row of stones, a sardius, a topaz, an emerald, the first row. 18And the second row a carbuncle, a sapphire, and a jasper. 19And the third row, a ligure, an agate, an amethyst: 20and the fourth row, a chrysolite, and a beryl, and an onyx stone, set round with gold, bound together with gold: let them be according to their row. 21And let the stones of the names of the children of Israel be twelve according to their names; engravings as of seals: let them be for the twelve tribes each according to the name. 22And thou shalt make on the oracle woven fringes, a chain-work of pure gold. 23And Aaron shall take the names of the children of Israel, on the oracle of judgment on his breast; a memorial before God for him as he goes into the sanctuary. 24And thou shalt put the fringes on the oracle of judgment; thou shalt put the wreaths on both sides of the oracle, 25and then thou shalt put the two circlets on both the shoulders of the ephod in front. 26And thou shalt put the 4 Manifestation and the Truth on the oracle of judgment; and it shall be on the breast of Aaron, when
29And the apparel of the sanctuary which is Aaron's shall be his sons' after him, for them to be anointed in them, and to fill their hands. 30The priest his successor from among his sons who shall go into the tabernacle of witness to minister in the holies, shall put them on seven days. 31And thou shalt take the ram of consecration, and thou shalt boil the flesh in the holy place. 32And Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram, and the loaves in the basket, by the doors of the tabernacle of witness. 33They shall eat the offerings with which they were sanctified to fill their hands, to sanctify them; and a stranger shall not eat of them for they are holy. 34 And if aught be left of the flesh of the sacrifice of consecration and of the loaves until the morning, thou shalt burn the remainder with fire: it shall not be eaten, for it is a holy thing.
And thus shalt thou do for Aaron and for his sons according to all things that I have commanded thee; seven days shalt thou fill their hands. 36And thou shalt sacrifice the calf of the sin-offering on the day of purification, and thou shalt purify the altar when thou dost 6 perform consecration upon it, and thou shalt anoint it so as to sanctify it. 37Seven days shalt thou purify the altar and sanctify it; and the altar shall be most holy, every one that touches the altar shall be hallowed. 38And these are the offerings which thou shalt offer upon the altar; two unblemished lambs of a year old daily on the altar continually, a constant offering.
39One lamb thou shalt offer in the morning, and the second lamb thou shalt offer in the evening. 40 And a tenth measure of fine flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil, and a drink-offering the fourth part of a hin of wine for one lamb. 41And thou shalt offer the second lamb in the evening. after the manner of the morning-offering, and according to the drink-offering 7 of the morning lamb; thou shalt offer it an offering to the Lord for a sweet-smelling savour, 42a perpetual sacrifice 8 throughout your generations, at the door of the tabernacle of witness before the Lord; wherein I will be known to thee from thence, so as to speak to thee. 43And I will there give orders to the children of Israel, and I will be sanctified in my glory. 44And I will
15And thou shalt take one ram and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram. 16And thou shalt kill it and take the blood and pour it on the star round about. 17And thou shalt divide the ram by his several limbs, and thou shalt wash the inward parts and the feet with water, and thou shalt put them on the divided parts with the head. 18And thou shalt offer the whole ram on the altar, a whole burnt-offering to the Lord for a sweet-smelling savor: it is an offering of incense to the Lord. 19And thou shalt take the second ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram. 20And thou shalt kill it, and take of the blood of it, and put it on the tip of Aaron's right ear, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the great toe of his right foot, and on the tips of the right ears of his sons and on the thumbs of their right hands, and on the great toes of their right feet. 21And thou shalt take of the blood from the altar, and of the anointing oil; and. thou shalt sprinkle it upon Aaron and on his garments, and on his sons and on his sons garments with him: and be shall be sanctified and his apparel, and his sons and his sons' apparel with him: but the blood of the ram thou. shalt pour round about upon the altar. 22And thou shalt take from the ram its fat both the fat that, covers the belly, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and the right shoulder, for this is a 10 consecration. 23And one cake made with oil, and one cake from the basket of unleavened bread set forth before the Lord. 24And thou shalt put them all on the hands of Aaron, and on the hands of his sons, and thou shalt 11 separate them as a separate offering before the Lord. 25And thou shalt
34And the Lord said to Moses, Take for thyself sweet herbs, stacte, onycha, sweet galbanum and transparent frankincense; there shall be 14 an equal weight of each. 35And they shall make with it perfumed incense, tempered with the art of a perfumer, a pure holy work. 36And of these thou shalt beat some small and thou shalt put it before the testimonies in the tabernacle of testimony, whence I will make myself known to thee: it shall be to you a most holy incense. 37Ye shall not make any for yourselves according to this composition; it shall be to you a holy thing for the Lord. 38Whosoever shall make any in like manner, so as 15 to smell it, shall perish from his people.
