1On the eighth day Moses sent for Aaron, his sons and the elders of Israel.2He said to Aaron, “Bring a bull calf for your sin offering. Bring a ram for your burnt offering. They must not have any flaws. Offer them to the Lord.3“Then speak to the people of Israel. Tell them, ‘Bring a male goat for a sin offering. Bring a calf and a lamb for a burnt offering. Both of them must be a year old. They must not have any flaws.4Bring an ox and a ram for a friendship offering. Sacrifice all of them to the Lord. Also bring a grain offering. Mix it with olive oil. Today the Lord will appear to you.’ ”5The people got the things Moses commanded them to get. They took them to the front of the Tent of Meeting. The whole community came up close to the tent. They stood there in front of the Lord.6Then Moses said, “You have done what the Lord has commanded. So the glory of the Lord will appear to you.”7Moses said to Aaron, “Come to the altar. Sacrifice your sin offering and your burnt offering. Pay for your sin and the sin of the people. Sacrifice the people's offering. Pay for their sin. Do just as the Lord has commanded.”8So Aaron came to the altar. He killed the calf as a sin offering for himself.9His sons brought its blood to him. He dipped his finger into the blood. He put some on the horns that stick out from the upper four corners of the altar. He poured out the rest at the bottom of the altar.10He burned the fat and the kidneys on the altar. He also burned the covering of the liver. All of those parts were from the sin offering. Aaron did just as the Lord had commanded Moses.11He burned up the meat and the hide outside the camp.12Then he killed the animal for the burnt offering. His sons handed him its blood. He sprinkled it against every side of the altar.13They handed him the burnt offering piece by piece. It included the animal's head. Aaron burned everything on the altar.14He washed the inside parts and the legs. He burned them on top of the burnt offering on the altar.15Then Aaron brought the people's offering. He took the goat for their sin offering and killed it. He offered it for a sin offering. He did just as he had done with his own sin offering.16He brought the animal for the burnt offering. He offered it in the way the law requires.17He also brought the grain offering. He took a handful of it and burned it on the altar. It was in addition to that morning's burnt offering.18Aaron killed the ox and the ram as the friendship offering for the people. His sons handed him the blood. He sprinkled it against every side of the altar.19His sons also brought the fat parts of the ox and the ram. They included the fat tail and the layer of fat. They also included the kidneys and the covering of the liver.20Aaron's sons placed everything on the breasts of the animals. Aaron burned the fat on the altar.21He lifted up the breasts and the right thigh and waved them in front of the Lord as a wave offering. He did it just as Moses had commanded.22Then Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people. He gave them a blessing. He had already sacrificed the sin offering, the burnt offering and the friendship offering. So he stepped down from the altar.23Moses and Aaron went into the Tent of Meeting. When they came out, they gave the people a blessing. The glory of the Lord appeared to all of the people.24The Lord sent fire on the altar. It burned up the burnt offering and the fat parts that were on it. All of the people saw it. Then they shouted for joy. They fell with their faces to the ground.

The Lord Accepts Aaron’s Offering
1On the eighth day Moses called Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel, (Eze 43:27)2and he said to Aaron, “Take for yourself a bull calf for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering, both without blemish, and offer them before the Lord. (Ex 29:1; Le 4:3; Le 8:14; Le 8:18)3And say to the people of Israel, ‘Take a male goat for a sin offering, and a calf and a lamb, both a year old without blemish, for a burnt offering, (Le 4:23; Ezr 6:17)4and an ox and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the Lord, and a grain offering mixed with oil, for today the Lord will appear to you.’” (Ex 29:43; Le 2:4; Le 9:6; Le 9:17; Le 9:23)5And they brought what Moses commanded in front of the tent of meeting, and all the congregation drew near and stood before the Lord.6And Moses said, “This is the thing that the Lord commanded you to do, that the glory of the Lord may appear to you.”7Then Moses said to Aaron, “Draw near to the altar and offer your sin offering and your burnt offering and make atonement for yourself and for the people, and bring the offering of the people and make atonement for them, as the Lord has commanded.” (Le 4:3; Le 4:16; Le 4:20; Heb 5:1; Heb 7:27; Heb 9:7)8So Aaron drew near to the altar and killed the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself.9And the sons of Aaron presented the blood to him, and he dipped his finger in the blood and put it on the horns of the altar and poured out the blood at the base of the altar. (Le 4:6; Le 4:7; Le 8:15)10But the fat and the kidneys and the long lobe of the liver from the sin offering he burned on the altar, as the Lord commanded Moses. (Le 4:8; Le 8:16)11The flesh and the skin he burned up with fire outside the camp. (Le 4:11; Le 8:17)12Then he killed the burnt offering, and Aaron’s sons handed him the blood, and he threw it against the sides of the altar. (Le 1:5; Le 8:19)13And they handed the burnt offering to him, piece by piece, and the head, and he burned them on the altar. (Le 8:20)14And he washed the entrails and the legs and burned them with the burnt offering on the altar. (Le 8:21)15Then he presented the people’s offering and took the goat of the sin offering that was for the people and killed it and offered it as a sin offering, like the first one. (Le 6:26; Le 9:3; Le 9:7; Le 9:8; Heb 2:17; Heb 5:3)16And he presented the burnt offering and offered it according to the rule. (Le 1:3; Le 1:10; Le 5:10)17And he presented the grain offering, took a handful of it, and burned it on the altar, besides the burnt offering of the morning. (Ex 29:38; Le 2:1; Le 9:4)18Then he killed the ox and the ram, the sacrifice of peace offerings for the people. And Aaron’s sons handed him the blood, and he threw it against the sides of the altar. (Le 3:1; Le 3:12; Le 3:16)19But the fat pieces of the ox and of the ram, the fat tail and that which covers the entrails and the kidneys and the long lobe of the liver— (Le 3:3; Le 3:9; Le 3:14; Le 4:8; Le 7:3)20they put the fat pieces on the breasts, and he burned the fat pieces on the altar, (Le 3:5; Le 3:16)21but the breasts and the right thigh Aaron waved for a wave offering before the Lord, as Moses commanded. (Ex 29:24; Ex 29:26; Le 7:30)22Then Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people and blessed them, and he came down from offering the sin offering and the burnt offering and the peace offerings. (Nu 6:23; De 21:5; Lu 24:50)23And Moses and Aaron went into the tent of meeting, and when they came out they blessed the people, and the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. (Le 9:4; Le 9:6)24And fire came out from before the Lord and consumed the burnt offering and the pieces of fat on the altar, and when all the people saw it, they shouted and fell on their faces. (Jud 6:21; Jud 13:19; 1Ki 18:38; 1Ki 18:39; 1Ch 21:26; 2Ch 7:1; 2Ch 7:3; Ezr 3:11)
