Leviticus 6 Command Aaron and Sons


Leviticus 6
Deceiving Sins
The Lord said to Moses, “If anyone sins and is unfaithful to the Lord by deceiving a neighbor with something entrusted to them, or is stolen, or cheat their neighbor, find lost property and swear falsely about this type of sin–they must realize their guilt, return the stolen property–they must make full restitution, add a fifth value to it–return to the owner with their guilt offering. They must bring to the priest, to the Lord, a ram without defect and proper value. The priest will make atonement for them and they will be forgiven.
**Burnt Offering
The Lord said to Moses: “Give Aaron and his sons this command: ‘These are the regulations for the burnt offering: The burnt offering is to remain on the altar hearth throughout the night, till morning, and the fire must be kept burning on the altar. The priest shall then put on his linen clothes, with linen undergarments next to his body, and shall remove the ashes of the burnt offering that the fire has consumed on the altar and place them beside the altar. Then he is to take off these clothes and put on others, and carry the ashes outside the camp to a place that is ceremonially clean.
The fire must not go out and every morning the priest must add firewood to burn the fat of the fellowship offerings on it. The fire must be kept burning on the altar continuously; it must not go out.
**Grain Offering
Aaron and his sons are to take the grain offering in front of the altar. The priest is to take the finest flour, and olive oil with incense offering and burn a memorial portion on the altar as an aroma pleasing to the Lord. Aaron and his sons will eat the rest without yeast in the sanctuary area. Aaron and his sons must eat it in the courtyard of the tent of the meeting.
Like the guilt offerings and the sin offerings, the grain offering is most holy.
Any male descendant of Aaron may eat of the offering. For all generations it is a perpetual food offering to the Lord and whatever touches them will become holy.
**Aaron’s Anointing
An offering for Aaron and his sons is a tenth of the finest flour as a regular grain offering.
Half in the morning and half in the evening. It must be prepared with oil on a griddle. Bring it well mixed and broken in pieces as an aroma to the Lord. The son who is to succeed him as anointed priest is to prepare it. The Lord’s perpetual share shall be burned completely. Every grain offering is to be burned completely or it must not be eaten.
**Sin Offering
The sin offering is to be slaughtered in the place of the burnt offering–it is most holy.
The priest who offers it shall eat it; it is to be eaten in the sanctuary area, in the courtyard of the tent of meeting. Whatever touches the flesh shall be holy and if any blood is spattered on a garment, it must be washed in the sanctuary area. The clay pot the meat is in must be broken. If it is cooked in a bronze pot it must be scoured and rinsed with water. Any male in a priest’s family may eat it; it is most holy. But any sin offering whose blood is brought into the tent of meeting to make atonement in the Holy Place must not be eaten; it must be burned up.
