Bible: Leviticus 9:1-7

Inauguration of Tabernacle Worship

9:1 On the eighth day 1  Moses summoned 2  Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel, 9:2 and said to Aaron, “Take for yourself a bull calf for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering, both flawless, and present them before the Lord. 9:3 Then tell the Israelites: ‘Take a male goat 3  for a sin offering and a calf and lamb, both a year old and flawless, 4  for a burnt offering, 9:4 and an ox and a ram for peace offerings to sacrifice before the Lord, and a grain offering mixed with olive oil, for today the Lord is going to appear 5  to you.’ 9:5 So they took what Moses had commanded to the front of 6  the Meeting Tent and the whole congregation presented them and stood before the Lord. 9:6 Then Moses said, “This is what the Lord has commanded you to do 7  so that the glory of the Lord may appear 8  to you.” 9:7 Moses then said to Aaron, “Approach the altar and make your sin offering and your burnt offering, and make atonement on behalf of yourself and on behalf of the people; 9  and also make the people’s offering and make atonement on behalf of them just as the Lord has commanded.”
