Leviticus 9

More Animal Sacrifices and the Glory of the Lord

More animal sacrifices
(9:1-22)

9:1 And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;

On the eighth day after Aaron and his sons' become priests, Moses and the new priests continue killing, sprinkling of blood, waiving animal parts, and burning carcasses "before the Lord."

9:2 And he said unto Aaron, Take thee a young calf for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before the LORD.

(9:1-2) Moses tells Aaron and his sons to kill an unblemished young calf for a sin offering, and a unblemished ram for a burnt offering.

9:3 And unto the children of Israel thou shalt speak, saying, Take ye a kid of the goats for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both of the first year, without blemish, for a burnt offering;

9:4 Also a bullock and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the LORD; and a meat offering mingled with oil: for to day the LORD will appear unto you.

9:5 And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near and stood before the LORD.

(9:3-4) And he told Aaron to tell the people to kill a young goat for a sin offering; a calf and a lamb, both in their first year, for burnt offerings; a bullock and a ram for peace offerings; and a meat offering mingled with oil -- because today God is will appear to them.

9:6 And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commanded that ye should do: and the glory of the LORD shall appear unto you.

9:7 And Moses said unto Aaron, Go unto the altar, and offer thy sin offering, and thy burnt offering, and make an atonement for thyself, and for the people: and offer the offering of the people, and make an atonement for them; as the LORD commanded.

(9:6) The glory of the Lord shall appear unto you
Moses promised the people that if they kill all these animals for God, the glory of the Lord will appear to them.

9:8 Aaron therefore went unto the altar, and slew the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself.

(9:8) Aaron killed the calf as a sin offering for himself.

9:9 And the sons of Aaron brought the blood unto him: and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the bottom of the altar:

(9:9) He dipped his finger in the blood
The sons of Aaron brought the calf's blood to Aaron, who dipped his finger in the blood, smeared it on the horns of the altar, and poured the rest at the bottom of the altar.

9:10 But the fat, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver of the sin offering, he burnt upon the altar; as the LORD commanded Moses.

(9:10) Aaron burned the fat, kidneys, and lobe above the liver on the altar, as God commanded Moses.

9:11 And the flesh and the hide he burnt with fire without the camp.

(9:11) He burned the flesh and the hide outside of the camp.

9:12 And he slew the burnt offering; and Aaron's sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled round about upon the altar.

(9:12) He sprinkled round about upon the altar
Then Aaron killed the burnt offering, and his sons gave him the blood, which he sprinkled round about the altar.

9:13 And they presented the burnt offering unto him, with the pieces thereof, and the head: and he burnt them upon the altar.

9:14 And he did wash the inwards and the legs, and burnt them upon the burnt offering on the altar.

(9:13-14) Then his sons gave him the burnt offering, with the head, pieces, intestines, and legs, which he burned on the altar.

9:15 And he brought the people's offering, and took the goat, which was the sin offering for the people, and slew it, and offered it for sin, as the first.

9:16 And he brought the burnt offering, and offered it according to the manner.

9:17 And he brought the meat offering, and took an handful thereof, and burnt it upon the altar, beside the burnt sacrifice of the morning.

(9:15) Aaron then killed the calf for the people's sin offering.

9:18 He slew also the bullock and the ram for a sacrifice of peace offerings, which was for the people: and Aaron's sons presented unto him the blood, which he sprinkled upon the altar round about,

(9:18) The blood, which he sprinkled upon the altar round about
Aaron also killed the bullock and ram for the people's peace offering, and his sons gave him the blood to sprinkle around the altar.

9:19 And the fat of the bullock and of the ram, the rump, and that which covereth the inwards, and the kidneys, and the caul above the liver:

9:20 And they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burnt the fat upon the altar:

(9:19-20) The fat from the bullock and ram, their rumps, intestines, kidneys, and lobes above the livers were put on top of the breasts and burned upon the altar.

9:21 And the breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave offering before the LORD; as Moses commanded.

9:22 And Aaron lifted up his hand toward the people, and blessed them, and came down from offering of the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and peace offerings.

(9:21) The breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved for a wave offering before the LORD
Aaron waved the breasts and right shoulder for a waver offering before the Lord, as Moses commanded.
The Glory of the Lord appears and an animal sacrifice miracle
(9:23-24)

9:23 And Moses and Aaron went into the tabernacle of the congregation, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people.

(9:23) The glory of the LORD appeared unto all the people.
And the glory of the Lord appeared to all the people. (Just like Moses said it would in verse 4!)

9:24 And there came a fire out from before the LORD, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat: which when all the people saw, they shouted, and fell on their faces.

(9:24) There came a fire out from before the LORD, and ... the people ... fell on their faces
God sent a fire to burn the dead animals and all the people "shouted and fell on their faces."
And they fell on their faces (FOF)
