1Yahweh spoke to Moses and said: 2'Take Aaron and with him his sons, the vestments, the anointing oil, the bul for the sacrifice for sin, thetwo rams and the basket of unleavened bread. 3Then cal the whole community together at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.' 4Moses did as Yahweh ordered; the community gathered at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, 5and Moses said to them, 'This is what Yahweh has ordered to be done.' 6He made Aaron and his sons come forward and washed them with water. 7He then dressed him in the tunic, passed the waistband round his waist, vested him in the robe and putthe ephod on him. He then put the waistband of the ephod round his waist, fastening it to him. 8He put the breastplate on him, and placed the urim and thummim in it. 9He put the turban on his head, and on the front of the turban, the golden flower; this was the symbol ofholy consecration, which Yahweh had prescribed to Moses. 10Moses then took the anointing oil and anointed the Dwel ing and everything inside it, to consecratethem. 11He sprinkled the altar seven times and anointed the altar and its accessories, the basin and its stand,to consecrate them. 12He then poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron's head and anointed him to consecrate him. 13Moses then made Aaron's sons come forward; he dressed them in tunics, passed the waistbandsround their waists and put on their head-dresses, as Yahweh had ordered him. 14He then had the bull for the sacrifice for sin brought forward. Aaron and his sons laid their hands onthe victim's head 15and Moses slaughtered it. He then took the blood and with his finger put some of it on the horns on thecorners of the altar to purify the altar. He then poured the rest of the blood at the foot of the altar, which heconsecrated by performing the rite of expiation over it. 16He then took all the fat covering the entrails, the mass of fat over the liver, both kidneys and their fat;and he burnt this on the altar, 17but the bul 's skin, its meat and its offal he burnt outside the camp, as Yahweh had ordered Moses. 18He then had the ram for the burnt offering brought forward. Aaron and his sons laid their hands on theram's head 19and Moses slaughtered it. He poured its blood al around the altar. 20He then quartered the ram and burned the head, the quarters and the fat. 21He then washed the entrails and shins, and burnt the whole ram on the altar, as a burnt offering,offered to be a pleasing smel , as food burnt for Yahweh, as Yahweh had ordered Moses. 22He then had the other ram brought forward, the ram for the investiture sacrifice. Aaron and his sonslaid their hands on its head 23and Moses slaughtered it. He took some of its blood and put it on the lobe of Aaron's right ear, on thethumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. 24He then made Aaron's sons come forward and he put some of the blood on the lobes of their rightears, on the thumbs of their right hands and on the big toes of their right feet. Next, Moses poured the rest of theblood al around the altar. 25He then took the fat: the tail, al the fat covering the entrails, the mass of fat over the liver, both kidneysand their fat, and the right thigh. 26From the basket of unleavened bread placed before Yahweh, he took an unleavened cake, a cake ofbread made with oil, and a wafer; he placed these on the fat and the right thigh, 27and put it al into Aaron's hands and those of his sons, and made the gesture of offering beforeYahweh. 28Moses then took them away from them and burned them on the altar, with the burnt offering. This wasthe investiture sacrifice, offered to be a pleasing smel , as food burnt for Yahweh. 29Moses then took the forequarter and made the gesture of offering before Yahweh. This was the portionof the ram of investiture that reverted to Moses, as Yahweh had ordered Moses. 30Moses then took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood that was on the altar and sprinkledAaron and his vestments, and his sons and their vestments, with it. In this way he consecrated Aaron and hisvestments and his sons and their vestments. 31Moses then said to Aaron and his sons, 'Cook the meat at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, and eatit there, as also the bread of the investiture sacrifice stil in the basket of the investiture offerings, as I ordered,when I said, "Aaron and his sons must eat it." 32What remains of the meat and bread you wil burn. 33For seven days you wil not leave the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, until the time of your investitureis complete; for your investiture wil require seven days. 34Yahweh has ordered us to do as we have done today to perform the rite of expiation for you; 35hence, for seven days, day and night, you wil remain at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting observingYahweh's ritual; do this, and you wil not incur death. For this was the order I received.' 36So Aaron and his sons did everything that Yahweh had ordered through Moses.
