The first offerings of Aaron, for himself and the people.

9:1 It happened on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;

9:2 and he said to Aaron,

“Take a calf from the herd for a sin offering,
and a ram for a burnt offering,
without blemish, and offer them before Yahweh.

9:3 You shall speak to the children of Israel, saying,

‘Take a male goat for a sin offering;
and a calf and a lamb,
both a year old, without blemish,
for a burnt offering;

9:4 and a bull and a ram for peace offerings,
to sacrifice before Yahweh;
and a meal offering mixed with oil:
for today Yahweh appears to you.’”

9:5 They brought what Moses commanded before the Tent of Meeting:
and all the congregation drew near and stood before Yahweh.

9:6 Moses said,

“This is the thing which Yahweh commanded that you should do:
and the glory of Yahweh shall appear to you.”

9:7 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 offer the offering of the people, and make atonement for them;
as Yahweh commanded.”

The sin offering,

9:8 So Aaron drew near to the altar, and killed the calf of the sin offering,
which was for himself.

9:9 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:

9:10 but the fat, and the kidneys,
and the cover from the liver of the sin offering,
he burned upon the altar;
as Yahweh commanded Moses.

9:11 The flesh and the skin he burned with fire outside the camp.

and the burnt offering for himself.

9:12 He killed the burnt offering;
and Aaron’s sons delivered the blood to him,
and he sprinkled it around on the altar.

9:13 They delivered the burnt offering to him, piece by piece, and the head:
and he burned them upon the altar.

9:14 He washed the innards and the legs,
and burned them on the burnt offering on the altar.

The offerings for the people.

9:15 He presented the people’s offering,
and took the goat of the sin offering
which was for the people, and killed it, and offered it for sin, like the first.

9:16 He presented the burnt offering,
and offered it according to the ordinance.

9:17 He presented the meal offering,
and filled his hand from there,
and burned it upon the altar,
besides the burnt offering of the morning.

9:18 He also killed the bull and the ram, the sacrifice of peace offerings,
which was for the people:
and Aaron’s sons delivered to him the blood,
which he sprinkled around on the altar,

9:19 and the fat of the bull and of the ram, the fat tail,
and that which covers the innards, and the kidneys,
and the cover of the liver:

9:20 and they put the fat upon the breasts,
and he burned the fat on the altar:

9:21 and the breasts and the right thigh
Aaron waved for a wave offering before Yahweh,
as Moses commanded.

9:22 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.

Moses and Aaron bless the people.

9:23 Moses and Aaron went into the Tent of Meeting, and came out, and blessed the people:
and the glory of Yahweh appeared to all the people.

Fire comes from the Lord, upon the altar.

9:24 There came forth fire from before Yahweh,
and consumed the burnt offering
and the fat upon the altar:
and when all the people saw it,
they shouted, and fell on their faces.
