19 “Take the other ram: Aharon and his sons are to lay their hands on the ram’s head;
20 and you are to slaughter the ram, take some of its blood, and put it on the lobe of Aharon’s right ear, on the lobes of his sons’ right ears, on the thumbs of their right hands and on the big toes of their right feet. Take the rest of the blood and splash it on all sides of the altar.
21 Then take some of the blood that is on the altar and some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aharon and his clothing and on his sons and the clothing of his sons with him; so that he and his clothing will be consecrated, and with him his sons and his sons’ clothing.
22 Also take the fat from the ram, the fat tail, the fat that covers the inner organs, the two kidneys, the fat covering them and the right thigh — for it is a ram of consecration —
23 along with one loaf of bread, one cake of oiled bread and one wafer from the basket of matzah which is before Adonai —
24 and put it all in the hands of Aharon and his sons. They are to wave them as a wave offering in the presence of Adonai.
25 Then take them back; and burn them up in smoke on the altar, on top of the burnt offering, to be a pleasing aroma before Adonai; it is an offering made to Adonai by fire.
26 “Take the breast of the ram for Aharon’s consecration, and wave it as a wave offering before Adonai; it will be your share.
27 Consecrate the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of any contribution that has been waved and raised up, whether from the ram of consecration, or from anything else meant for Aharon or his sons;
28 this will belong to Aharon and his sons as their share perpetually due from the people of Isra’el — it will be a contribution from the people of Isra’el from their peace offerings, their contribution to Adonai.
29 “The holy garments of Aharon will be used by his sons after him; they will be anointed and consecrated in them.
30 The son who becomes cohen in his place, who comes into the tent of meeting to serve in the Holy Place, is to wear them for seven days.
31 Take the ram of consecration, and boil its meat in a holy place.
32 Aharon and his sons will eat the ram’s meat and the bread in the basket at the entrance to the tent of meeting.
33 They are to eat the things with which atonement was made for them, to inaugurate and consecrate them; no one else may eat this food, because it is holy.
34 If any of the meat for the consecration or any of the bread remains until morning, burn up what remains; it is not to be eaten, because it is holy.
35 Carry out all these orders I have given you concerning Aharon and his sons. You are to spend seven days consecrating them.
36 “Each day, offer a young bull as a sin offering, besides the other offerings of atonement; offer the sin offering on the altar as your atonement for it; then anoint it to consecrate it.
37 Seven days you will make atonement on the altar and consecrate it; thus the altar will be especially holy, and whatever touches the altar will become holy.
