[please see end note]
Exodus
29,1 And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow them, to minister unto Me in the priest’s office: take one young bullock and two rams without blemish, 29,2 and unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened mingled with oil, and wafers unleavened spread with oil; of fine wheaten flour shalt thou make them. 29,3 And thou shalt
put them into one basket, and bring them in the basket, with the bullock and the two rams. 29,4 And
Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the tent of meeting, and shalt wash them with water.

29,5 And thou shalt take the garments, and put upon Aaron the tunic, and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate, and gird him with the skilfully woven band of the ephod. 29,6 And thou shalt set the mitre upon his head, and put the holy crown upon the mitre. 29,7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him. 29,8 And thou shalt bring his sons, and put tunics upon them. 29,9 And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and bind head-tires on them; and they shall have the priesthood by a perpetual statute; and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons. 29,10 And thou shalt bring the bullock before the tent of meeting; and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the bullock. 29,11 And thou shalt kill the bullock before the LORD, at the door of the tent of meeting. 29,12 And thou shalt take of the blood of the bullock, and put it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger; and thou shalt pour out all the remaining blood at the base of the altar. 29,13 And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the inwards, and the lobe above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, and make them smoke upon the altar. 29,14 But the flesh of the bullock, and its skin, and its dung, shalt thou burn with fire without the camp; it is a sin-offering. 29,15 Thou shalt also take the one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands upon the head of the ram. 29,16 And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take its blood, and dash it round about against the altar. 29,17 And thou shalt cut the ram into its pieces, and wash its inwards, and its legs, and put them with its pieces, and with its head. 29,18 And thou shalt make the whole ram smoke upon the altar; it is a burnt-offering unto the LORD; it is a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
