Aaron offereth sacrifice for himself and the people. Fire cometh from the Lord upon the altar.

[1] And when the eighth day was come, Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the ancients of Israel, and said to Aaron: [2] Take of the herd a calf for sin, and a ram for a holocaust, both without blemish, and offer them before the Lord. [3] And to the children of Israel thou shalt say: Take ye a he goat for sin, and a calf, and a lamb, both of a year old, and without blemish for a holocaust, [4] Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings: and immolate them before the Lord, offering for the sacrifice of every one of them flour tempered with oil; for today the Lord will appear to you. [5] They brought therefore all things that Moses had commanded before the door of the tabernacle: where when all the multitude stood,

[6] Moses said: This is the word, which the Lord hath commanded: do it, and his glory will appear to you. [7] And he said to Aaron: Approach to the altar, and offer sacrifice for thy sin: offer the holocaust, and pray for thyself and for the people: and when thou hast slain the people' s victim, pray for them, as the Lord hath commanded. [8] And forthwith Aaron, approaching to the altar, immolated the calf for his sin: [9] And his sons brought him the blood of it: and he dipped his finger therein, and touched the horns of the altar, and poured the rest at the foot thereof. [10] And the fat, and the little kidneys, and the caul of the liver, which are for sin, he burnt upon the altar, as the Lord had commanded Moses:

[11] But the flesh and skins thereof he burnt with fire without the camp. [12] He immolated also the victim of holocaust: and his sons brought him the blood thereof, which he poured round about on the altar. [13] And the victim being cut into pieces, they brought to him the head and all the members, all which he burnt with fire upon the altar, [14] Having first washed the entrails and the feet with water. [15] Then offering for the sin of the people, he slew the he goat: and expiating the altar,

[16] He offered the holocaust: [17] Adding in the sacrifice the libations, which are offered withal, and burning them upon the altar, besides the ceremonies of the morning holocaust. [18] He immolated also the bullock and the ram, the peace offerings of the people: and his sons brought him the blood, which he poured upon the altar round about. [19] The fat also of the bullock, and the rump of the ram, and the two little kidneys, with their fat, and the caul of the liver, [20] They put upon the breasts. And after the fat was burnt upon the altar,

[21] Aaron separated their breasts, and the right shoulders, elevating them before the Lord, as Moses had commanded. [22] And stretching forth his hands to the people, he blessed them. And so the victims for sin, and the holocausts, and the peace offerings being finished, he came down. [23] And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the testimony, and afterwards came forth and blessed the people. And the glory of the Lord appeared to all the multitude: [24] And behold a fire, coming forth from the Lord, devoured the holocaust, and the fat that was upon the altar: which when the multitude saw, they praised the Lord, falling on their faces.
