Exodus 29:1-46, NLT
Dedication of the Priests
1“This is the ceremony you must follow when you consecrate Aaron and his sons to serve me as priests: Take a young bull and two rams with no defects.
4“Present Aaron and his sons at the entrance of the Tabernacle,*29:4 Hebrew Tent of Meeting; also in 29:10, 11, 30, 32, 42, 44. and wash them with water.
10“Bring the young bull to the entrance of the Tabernacle, where Aaron and his sons will lay their hands on its head.
15“Next Aaron and his sons must lay their hands on the head of one of the rams.
19“Now take the other ram, and have Aaron and his sons lay their hands on its head.
22“Since this is the ram for the ordination of Aaron and his sons, take the fat of the ram, including the fat of the broad tail, the fat around the internal organs, the long lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and the fat around them, along with the right thigh.
27“Set aside the portions of the ordination ram that belong to Aaron and his sons. This includes the breast and the thigh that were lifted up before the Lord as a special offering.
29“Aaron’s sacred garments must be preserved for his descendants who succeed him, and they will wear them when they are anointed and ordained.
31“Take the ram used in the ordination ceremony, and boil its meat in a sacred place.
35“This is how you will ordain Aaron and his sons to their offices, just as I have commanded you. The ordination ceremony will go on for seven days.
38“These are the sacrifices you are to offer regularly on the altar. Each day, offer two lambs that are a year old,
42“These burnt offerings are to be made each day from generation to generation. Offer them in the Lord’s presence at the Tabernacle entrance; there I will meet with you and speak with you.
