Leviticus 9

The Priests Offer Sacrifices

1On the eighth day Moses sent for Aaron, his sons and the elders of Israel. He said to Aaron, “Bring a bull calf for your sin offering. Bring a ram for your burnt offering. They must not have any flaws. Offer them to the Lord. Then speak to the Israelites. Tell them, ‘Bring a male goat for a sin offering. Bring a calf and a lamb for a burnt offering. Both of them must be a year old. They must not have any flaws. Bring an ox and a ram for a friendship offering. Sacrifice all of them to the Lord. Also bring a grain offering. Mix it with olive oil. Today the Lord will appear to you.’ ”

The people got the things Moses commanded them to get. They took them to the front of the tent of meeting. The whole community came up close to the tent. They stood there in front of the Lord. Then Moses said, “You have done what the Lord has commanded. So the glory of the Lord will appear to you.”

Moses said to Aaron, “Come to the altar. Sacrifice your sin offering and your burnt offering. Pay for your sin and the sin of the people. Sacrifice the people’s offering. Pay for their sin. Do just as the Lord has commanded.”

So Aaron came to the altar. He killed the calf as a sin offering for himself. His sons brought its blood to him. He dipped his finger into the blood. He put some on the horns that stick out from the upper four corners of the altar. He poured out the rest of the blood at the bottom of the altar. 10 He burned the fat and the kidneys on the altar. He also burned the long part of the liver. All these parts were from the sin offering. Aaron did just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 11 He burned up the meat and the hide outside the camp.

12 Then he killed the animal for the burnt offering. His sons handed him its blood. He splashed it against the sides of the altar. 13 They handed him the burnt offering piece by piece. It included the animal’s head. Aaron burned everything on the altar. 14 He washed the inside parts and the legs. He burned them on top of the burnt offering on the altar.

15 Then Aaron brought the people’s offering. He took the goat for their sin offering and killed it. He offered it for a sin offering. He did just as he had done with his own sin offering.

16 He brought the animal for the burnt offering. He offered it in the way the law requires. 17 He also brought the grain offering. He took a handful of it and burned it on the altar. It was in addition to that morning’s burnt offering.

18 Aaron killed the ox and the ram as the friendship offering for the people. His sons handed him the blood. He splashed it against the sides of the altar. 19 His sons also brought the fat parts of the ox and the ram. They included the fat tail and the layer of fat. They also included the kidneys and the long part of the liver. 20 Aaron’s sons placed everything on the breasts of the animals. Aaron burned the fat on the altar. 21 He lifted up the breasts and the right thigh and waved them in front of the Lord as a wave offering. He did it just as Moses had commanded.

22 Then Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people. He gave them a blessing. He had already sacrificed the sin offering, the burnt offering and the friendship offering. So he stepped down from the altar.

23 Moses and Aaron went into the tent of meeting. When they came out, they gave the people a blessing. The glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. 24 The Lord sent fire on the altar. The fire burned up the burnt offering along with the fat parts. All the people saw it. Then they shouted for joy. They fell with their faces to the ground.

利未记 9

亚伦献祭

1第八天,摩西召来亚伦父子们和以色列的众长老。 他对亚伦说:“你要在耶和华面前献上一头公牛犊作赎罪祭、一只公绵羊作燔祭,这些祭牲都要毫无残疾。 然后,你要告诉以色列人,‘你们要取一只公山羊作赎罪祭、毫无残疾的一岁牛犊和羊羔各一只作燔祭、 公牛和公绵羊各一只作平安祭,连同调油的素祭一起献给耶和华,因为今天耶和华要向你们显现。’” 于是,以色列人遵照摩西的吩咐,把祭物带到会幕前。全体会众都聚集到那里,站在耶和华面前。 摩西对他们说:“耶和华吩咐你们这样做,是为了向你们显出祂的荣耀。” 随后,摩西对亚伦说:“你要到坛前来,献上你的赎罪祭和燔祭,为自己和民众赎罪。也要按照耶和华的吩咐,为百姓献上他们的祭物,为他们赎罪。”

于是,亚伦走到坛前,宰杀为他作赎罪祭的牛犊。 他儿子们把牛犊的血递给他,他用手指蘸血抹在坛角上,将剩下的血倒在坛脚旁。 10 他照耶和华对摩西的吩咐,在坛上焚烧牛犊的脂肪、肾脏和肝叶, 11 把皮和肉带到营外焚烧。

12 亚伦宰了燔祭祭牲,他儿子们把祭牲的血递给他洒在祭坛四周。 13 他们将祭牲切成块,连头颅一起交给亚伦献在坛上焚烧。 14 亚伦洗净祭牲的内脏和腿,放在祭坛的燔祭上焚烧。

15 随后,亚伦为民众献祭。他牵来那只为民众作赎罪祭的公山羊,宰杀后,像刚才为自己献赎罪祭一样为他们献上赎罪祭。 16 他又牵来燔祭祭牲,依照条例献上燔祭。 17 除了早晨的燔祭,亚伦又取来素祭,从中拿了一把献在坛上焚烧。 18 然后,他宰了公牛和公绵羊,为民众献平安祭。他儿子们把祭牲的血递给他,他把血洒在祭坛四周。 19 他们把公牛和公绵羊的脂肪,即肥尾巴、遮盖内脏的脂肪、肾脏和肝叶, 20 放在祭牲的胸上,然后亚伦把那些脂肪放在坛上焚烧, 21 将胸肉和右腿肉作为摇祭在耶和华面前摇一摇,都遵照摩西的吩咐。

22 亚伦献完赎罪祭、燔祭和平安祭,举手为民众祝福后,走下祭坛。 23 之后,摩西和亚伦走进会幕,又出来为民众祝福。这时,耶和华的荣耀向所有民众显现。 24 有火从耶和华那里降下来,烧尽祭坛上的燔祭和脂肪。民众看见这景象,都欢呼起来,俯伏在地。
