Exodus 29

Exodus Chapter 29

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