Leviticus 8:1 And the Lorde spake vnto Moyses, saying: Leviticus 8:2 Take Aaron and his sonnes with hym, and the vestures, and the annoynting oyle, and a bullocke for a sinne offering, and two Rammes, and a basket of vnleauened bread: Leviticus 8:3 And gather thou all the congregation together vnto the doore of the tabernacle of the congregation. Leviticus 8:4 And Moyses dyd as the Lorde commaunded him: and the people were gathered together vnto the doore of the tabernacle of the congregation. Leviticus 8:5 And Moyses sayd vnto the congregation: This is the thing which the Lord commaunded to be done. Leviticus 8:6 And Moyses brought Aaron and his sonnes, and washed them with water: Leviticus 8:7 And put vpon him the coate, and gyrded hym with a gyrdle, and put vpon hym the robe, and put the Ephod theron, whiche he gyrded with the brodered garde that was in the Ephod, and bounde it vnto him therewith. Leviticus 8:8 And he put the brestplate theron, and put in the brestplate the Urim and the Thummim. Leviticus 8:9 And he put the cap of estate vpon his head, and put vpon the cap, euen vpon the forefront, the golden plate, the holy crowne, as the Lorde commaunded Moyses. Leviticus 8:10 And Moyses toke the annoyntyng oyle, and annoynted the tabernacle and al that was therin, and sanctified them. Leviticus 8:11 And sprinckled therof vpon the aulter seuen tymes, and annoynted the aulter and all his vesselles, the lauer and his foote, to sanctifie them. Leviticus 8:12 And he powred of the annoynting oyle vpon Aarons head, & annoynted hym, to sanctifie hym. Leviticus 8:13 And Moyses brought Aarons sonnes, and put coates vpon them, and gyrded them with gyrdles, and put bonettes vpon their heades, as the Lorde commaunded Moyses.
Their sin offering.
Leviticus 8:14 And he brought the Bullocke for the sinne offering: and Aaron & his sonnes put their handes vpon the head of the Bullocke for the sinne offering. Leviticus 8:15 And Moyses slewe hym, and toke the blood, which he put vpon the hornes of the aulter rounde about with his finger, and purified the aulter, and powred the blood at the bottome of the aulter, & sanctified it, to make reconciliatio vpo it. Leviticus 8:16 And he toke all the fat that was vpon the inwardes, and the kall of the liuer, and the two kydneys and their fat, and Moyses burned it vpon the aulter. Leviticus 8:17 But the Bullocke, & his hide, his flesh, and his dounge, he burnt with fyre without the hoast, as the Lorde commaunded Moyses.
Their burnt offering.
Leviticus 8:18 And he brought the Ramme for the burnt offering, and Aaron & his sonnes put their handes vpon the head of the Ramme, Leviticus 8:19 Whiche Moyses killed, and sprinckled the blood vpo the aulter rounde about. Leviticus 8:20 And Moyses cut the Ramme into his peeces, and burnt the head, the peeces, and the fat. Leviticus 8:21 And washed ye inwardes & the legges in water, & Moyses burnt the Ramme euerywhyt vpon the aulter: for it was a burnt sacrifice for a sweete sauour, and an offering made by fire vnto the Lord, as the Lorde commaunded Moyses.
The ram of consecration.
Leviticus 8:22 And he brought the other Ramme, namely the Ramme of consecrations: and Aaron and his sonnes put their handes vpon the head of the Ramme, Leviticus 8:23 Which Moyses slewe, and toke of the blood of it, and put it vpon the tip of Aarons right eare, and vpon the thumbe of his ryght hande, and vpon the great toe of his ryght foote. Leviticus 8:24 And Moyses brought Aarons sonnes, and put of the blood on the tippe of the right eare of them, & vpon the thumbes of theyr right handes, & vpon the great toes of their ryght feete: and Moyses sprinckled the blood vpon the aulter rounde about. Leviticus 8:25 And he toke the fat, and the rumpe, and all the fat that was vpon the inwardes, and the kall of the liuer, and the two kydneys with their fat, and the ryght shoulder. Leviticus 8:26 And out of the basket of vnleauened bread that was before the Lorde, he toke one vnleauened cake, and a cake of oyled bread, and one wafer, & put them on the fat, and vpon the right shoulder: Leviticus 8:27 And put altogether vpon Aarons handes, & vpon his sonnes handes, and waued it a waue offering before the Lord. Leviticus 8:28 And Moyses toke them from of their handes, and burnt them vpon the aulter for a burnt offering: These were consecrations for a sweete sauour and sacrifice made by fire vnto the Lorde. Leviticus 8:29 And Moyses toke the brest, and waued it for a waue offering before the Lorde: for of the Ramme of consecrations, it was Moyses part, as the Lorde commaunded Moyses. Leviticus 8:30 And Moyses toke of the annoynting oyle, and of the blood which was vpon the aulter, & sprinckled it vpon Aaron and vpon his garmentes, and vpon his sonnes and on his sonnes garmentes with him: and sanctified Aaron and his vestures, and his sonnes and his sonnes vestures with hym.

Leviticus 8:31 And Moyses sayde vnto Aaron and his sonnes: Boyle the fleshe at the doore of the tabernacle of the congregation, and there eate it with the bread that is in the basket of consecration, and as I commaunded, saying, Aaron and his sonnes shall eate it. Leviticus 8:32 And that whiche remayneth of the fleshe and of the bread, shall ye burne with fyre. Leviticus 8:33 And ye shall not depart from the doore of the tabernacle of the congregation seuen dayes, vntyll the dayes of your consecrations be at an ende: for seuen dayes shall he fill your hande. Leviticus 8:34 As he did this day: euen so the Lorde hath commaunded to do, to make an attonement for you. Leviticus 8:35 Therefore shall ye abyde at the doore of the tabernacle of the congregation day and nyght seuen dayes long, and kepe the watch of the Lord, and ye shal not dye: for so I am commaunded. Leviticus 8:36 And so Aaron and his sonnes, dyd all thinges whiche the Lorde commaunded by the hande of Moyses.
