Leviticus 9:1-16 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

Parashat Shemini

Kohanim Begin Their Ministry

Now it happened on the eighth day that Moses called Aaron, his sons, and the elders of Israel. Then he said to Aaron, “Take a calf from the herd for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, both without blemish, and offer them before Adonai. You are to speak to Bnei-Yisrael, saying: Take a male goat for a sin offering, along with a calf and a lamb, both yearlings without blemish, for a burnt offering, plus a bull and a ram for fellowship offerings, to sacrifice before Adonai, along with a grain offering mixed with oil. For today Adonai appears to you.”

So they brought what Moses commanded before the Tent of Meeting, and the entire congregation drew near and stood before Adonai. Moses said, “This is what Adonai commanded that you shall do, so that the glory of Adonai may appear to you.” Moses said to Aaron, “Draw near to the altar, and bring your sin offering, and your burnt offering, and make atonement for yourself and for the people.[a] Then present the offering for the people, and make atonement for them, as Adonai commanded.”

So Aaron drew near to the altar, and slaughtered the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself. The sons of Aaron presented the blood to him. Then he dipped his finger in the blood, dabbed it onto the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the base of the altar. 10 But the fat, the kidneys and the cover from the liver of the sin offering he burned up as smoke on the altar, as Adonai had commanded Moses. 11 The flesh and the hide he burned in a fire outside the camp. 12 Aaron slaughtered the burnt offering, then his sons presented the blood to him and he splashed it around on the altar. 13 They handed the burnt offering to him piece by piece, along with the head, and he burned them up as smoke on the altar. 14 He washed the innards and the legs and he offered them in smoke upon the burnt offering on the altar. 15 Then he presented the people’s gift, took the goat of the sin offering which was for the people, slaughtered it, and offered it for sin, just like the first one. 16 He presented the burnt offering and offered it according to the decree.
