Leviticus 9
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And it comes to pass on the eighth day, Moses has called for Aaron and for his sons, and for [the] elderly of Israel, 2and he says to Aaron, “Take a calf for yourself, a son of the herd, for a sin-offering, and a ram for a burnt-offering, perfect ones, and bring [them] near before YHWH. 3And you speak to the sons of Israel, saying, Take a kid of the goats for a sin-offering, and a calf, and a lamb, sons of a year, perfect ones, for a burnt-offering, 4and a bullock and a ram for peace-offerings, to sacrifice before YHWH, and a present mixed with oil; for today YHWH has appeared to you.” 5And they take that which Moses has commanded to the front of the Tent of Meeting, and all the congregation draws near and stands before YHWH; 6and Moses says, “This [is] the thing which YHWH has commanded; do [it], and the glory of YHWH appears to you.” 7And Moses says to Aaron, “Draw near to the altar, and make your sin-offering, and your burnt-offering, and make atonement for yourself, and for the people, and make the offering of the people, and make atonement for them, as YHWH has commanded.”

8And Aaron draws near to the altar, and slaughters the calf of the sin-offering, which [is] for himself; 9and the sons of Aaron bring the blood near to him, and he dips his finger in the blood, and puts [it] on the horns of the altar, and he has poured out the blood at the foundation of the altar; 10and the fat, and the kidneys, and the redundance of the liver, of the sin-offering, he has made incense on the altar, as YHWH has commanded Moses; 11and he has burned the flesh and the skin with fire, at the outside of the camp.

12And he slaughters the burnt-offering, and the sons of Aaron have presented the blood to him, and he sprinkles it around the altar; 13and they have presented the burnt-offering to him, by its pieces, and the head, and he makes incense on the altar; 14and he washes the innards and the legs, and makes incense for the burnt-offering on the altar.

15And he brings the offering of the people near, and takes the goat of the sin-offering which [is] for the people, and slaughters it, and makes it a sin-offering, like the first; 16and he brings the burnt-offering near, and makes it, according to the ordinance; 17and he brings the present near, and fills his palm with it, and makes incense on the altar, apart from the burnt-offering of the morning.

18And he slaughters the bullock and the ram, a sacrifice of the peace-offerings, which [are] for the people, and sons of Aaron present the blood to him (and he sprinkles it around the altar), 19and the fat of the bullock, and of the ram, the fat tail, and the covering [of the innards], and the kidneys, and the redundance on the liver, 20and they set the fat on the breasts, and he makes incense with the fat on the altar; 21and Aaron has waved the breasts and the right leg [as] a wave-offering before YHWH, as He has commanded Moses.

22And Aaron lifts up his hand toward the people, and blesses them, and comes down from making the sin-offering, and the burnt-offering, and the peace-offerings.

23And Moses goes in—Aaron also—to the Tent of Meeting, and they come out, and bless the people, and the glory of YHWH appears to all the people; 24and fire comes out from before YHWH, and consumes the burnt-offering and the fat on the altar; and all the people see, and cry aloud, and fall on their faces.
