1On the eighth day Moses summoned Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel;
2he said to Aaron, 'Take a calf to offer a sacrifice for sin, and a ram for a burnt offering, both withoutblemish, and bring them before Yahweh.
3Then say to the Israelites, "Take a goat to be offered as a sacrifice for sin, a calf and a lamb one yearold (both without blemish) for a burnt offering,
4a bul and a ram for communion sacrifices to be slaughtered before Yahweh, and a cereal offeringmixed with oil. For Yahweh wil appear to you today." '
5They brought what Moses had ordered in front of the Tent of Meeting; then the whole communityapproached and stood before Yahweh.
6Moses then said, 'This is what Yahweh has ordered you to do, so that his glory may be visible to you.'
7Moses then addressed Aaron, 'Go to the altar and offer your sacrifice for sin and your burnt offering,and so perform the rite of expiation for yourself and your family. Then present the people's offering and performthe rite of expiation for them, as Yahweh has ordered.'
8Aaron went to the altar and slaughtered the calf as a sacrifice for his own sin.
9Aaron's sons then presented the blood to him; he dipped his finger in it and put some on the horns ofthe altar, and then poured the rest of the blood at the foot of the altar.
10The fat of the sacrifice for sin and the kidneys and the mass of fat over the liver he burned on the altar,as Yahweh had ordered Moses,
11and the meat and the skin he burned outside the camp.
12He then slaughtered the burnt offering; Aaron's sons then handed him the blood, which he poured alaround the altar.
13They then handed him the quartered victim and the head, and he burned these on the altar.
14He then washed the entrails and shins and burned them with the burnt offering on the altar.
15He then presented the people's offering. He took the goat for the people's sacrifice for sin, slaughteredit, and made a sacrifice for sin with it in the same way as with the first.
16He then had the burnt offering brought forward and proceeded according to the ritual.
17He then had the cereal offering brought forward, took a handful of it and burned it on the altar inaddition to the morning burnt offering.
18Then he slaughtered the bul and the ram as a communion sacrifice for the people. Aaron's sonshanded him the blood and he poured it al around the altar.
19The fat of the bul and the ram, the tail, the covering fat, the kidneys, the mass of fat over the liver,
20he placed on the ribs and then burned on the altar.
21With the ribs and the right thigh Aaron made the gesture of offering as Yahweh had ordered Moses.
22Aaron then raised his hands towards the people and blessed them. Having thus performed thesacrifice for sin, the burnt offering and the communion sacrifice, he came down
23and entered the Tent of Meeting with Moses. Then they came out together to bless the people and theglory of Yahweh appeared to the entire people:
24a flame leapt out from Yahweh's presence and consumed the burnt offering and fat on the altar. At thissight the entire people shouted for joy and fel on their faces.
