The Third Book of Moses, called Leviticus
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 to day 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.
