Leviticus chapter .ix.

And the eighth day Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel, and said unto Aaron: take a calf for a sinoffering, and a ram for a burntoffering: both without blemish, and bring them before the LORD. And unto the children of Israel he spake saying: take ye an he goat for a sinoffering, and a calf and a lamb both two of a year old, and without blemish for a burnt sacrifice, and an ox and a ram for peaceofferings, to offer before the LORD, and a meatoffering mingled with oil, for today the LORD will appear unto you. And they brought that which Moses commanded unto the tabernacle of witness, and all the people came and stood before the LORD. And Moses said: this is the thing which the LORD commanded that ye should do: and then the glory of the LORD shall appear unto you. And Moses said unto Aaron: go unto the altar and offer thy sinoffering, and make an atonement for thee and for the people: and then offer the offering of the people and reconcile them also, as the LORD commanded Moses.
And Aaron went unto the altar, and slew the calf that was his sinoffering. And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him, and he dipped his finger in the blood and put it upon the horns of the altar, and poured the blood unto the bottom of the altar. And the fat and the two kidneys with the caul of the liver of the sinoffering, he burnt upon the altar, as the LORD commanded Moses: but the flesh and the hide, he burnt with fire without the host. Afterward he slew the burntoffering, and Aaron's sons brought the blood unto him, and he sprinkled it round about upon the altar. And they brought the burntoffering unto him in pieces and the head also, and he burnt it upon the altar, and did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt them also upon the burntoffering in the altar. And then he brought the people's offering and took the goat that was the people's sinoffering, and slew it and offered it for a sinoffering: as he did the first. And then brought the burntoffering and offered it as the manner was, and brought the meatoffering and filled his hand thereof, and burnt it upon the altar, besides the burnt sacrifice in the morning. Then he slew the ox and the ram that were the people's peaceofferings, and Aaron's sons brought the blood unto him, and he sprinkled it upon the altar round about, and took the fat of the ox and of the ram: the rump and the fat that covereth the inwards and the kidneys and the caul of the liver: and put them upon the breasts and burnt it upon the altar: but the breasts and the right shoulders Aaron waved before the LORD, as the LORD commanded Moses. And Aaron lift up his hand over the people and blessed them, and came down from offering of sinofferings, burntofferings and peaceofferings.
Then Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of witness and came out again and blessed the people, and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people. And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed upon the altar: the burntoffering and the fat. And all the people saw it and shouted, and fell on their faces.
