Leviticus Chapter 8

Leviticus 8

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and a bullock for the sin offering, and two rams, and a basket of unleavened bread;

3And gather thou all the congregation together unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

4And Moses did as the LORD commanded him; and the assembly was gathered together unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

5And Moses said unto the congregation, This is the thing which the LORD commanded to be done.

6And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water.

7And he put upon him the coat, and girded him with the girdle, and clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him, and he girded him with the curious girdle of the ephod, and bound it unto him therewith.

8And he put the breastplate upon him: also he put in the breastplate the Urim and the Thummim.

9And he put the mitre upon his head; also upon the mitre, even upon his forefront, did he put the golden plate, the holy crown; as the LORD commanded Moses.

10And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was therein, and sanctified them.

11And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all his vessels, both the laver and his foot, to sanctify them.

12And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.

13And Moses brought Aaron’s sons, and put coats upon them, and girded them with girdles, and put bonnets upon them; as the LORD commanded Moses.

14And he brought the bullock for the sin offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock for the sin offering.

15And he slew it; and Moses took the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured the blood at the bottom of the altar, and sanctified it, to make reconciliation upon it.

16And he took all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and Moses burned it upon the altar.

17But the bullock, and his hide, his flesh, and his dung, he burnt with fire without the camp; as the LORD commanded Moses.

18And he brought the ram for the burnt offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

19And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.

20And he cut the ram into pieces; and Moses burnt the head, and the pieces, and the fat.

21And he washed the inwards and the legs in water; and Moses burnt the whole ram upon the altar: it was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet savour, and an offering made by fire unto the LORD; as the LORD commanded Moses.

22And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

23And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it upon the tip of Aaron’s right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.

24And he brought Aaron’s sons, and Moses put of the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumbs of their right hands, and upon the great toes of their right feet: and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.

25And he took the fat, and the rump, and all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the caul above the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right shoulder:

26And out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before the LORD, he took one unleavened cake, and a cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and put them on the fat, and upon the right shoulder:

27And he put all upon Aaron’s hands, and upon his sons’ hands, and waved them for a wave offering before the LORD.

28And Moses took them from off their hands, and burnt them on the altar upon the burnt offering: they were consecrations for a sweet savour: it is an offering made by fire unto the LORD.

29And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave offering before the LORD: for of the ram of consecration it was Moses’ part; as the LORD commanded Moses.

30And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sons’ garments with him; and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons’ garments with him.

31And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons, Boil the flesh at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and there eat it with the bread that is in the basket of consecrations, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it.

32And that which remaineth of the flesh and of the bread shall ye burn with fire.

33And ye shall not go out of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation in seven days, until the days of your consecration be at an end: for seven days shall he consecrate you.

34As he hath done this day, so the LORD hath commanded to do, to make an atonement for you.

35Therefore shall ye abide at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation day and night seven days, and keep the charge of the LORD, that ye die not: for so I am commanded.

36So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

15 thoughts on “Leviticus Chapter 8

  1. v 10 And Moses.took the anointing oil
    and anointed the tabernacle and all that
    was therein,and sanctified them.

    I need that Holy Oil.
    That’s a bible commandment . As we respond and flow with The Spirit of GOD.
    ” Thou anointest my head with oil
    my cup runneth over”
    GOD is able to take care of us.

  2. Aaron and his sons had a mandate from the man of God to stay at the house of God for seven days which they did without question. To obey is better than sacrifice and to hearken than the fat of rams. . . This is a perfect example.

  3. I love the way God ALWAYS does everything in a specific order. It is not a coincidence that they had to be washed prior to being annointed, just as it is not a coincidence that the anointing always begins on the head. We have a lot to learn about how God does things. We also need to learn from the consequences of Israel’s disobedience. Obedience is the main requirement of blessings if you are obedient to God & your pastor which is the head of the church the annointing flows down from the head to the body (us), therefore we are annointed by Christ.

  4. DETAILS MATTER TO GOD

    23 And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it upon the tip of Aaron’s right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.

    Before sprinkling the blood upon the altar, Moses put some of it upon the tip of the right ear, upon the right thumb, and upon the great toe of the right foot of Aaron and his sons. Thus he touched the extreme points, which represented the whole, of the ear, hand, and foot on the right, or more important and principal side: the ear, because the priest was always to hearken to the word and commandment of God; the hand, because he was to discharge the priestly functions properly; and the foot, because he was to walk correctly in the sanctuary.

    Frequently we may ask why do we worship, pray and live in certain ways that are unique. A word of caution I seek to live by is to find out why a fence is in place before considering to move it. Any change in sacrifice should be ordained by GOD, and affirmed by your Pastor.

    Seek the LORD.

  5. In vs.30 we see that Moses took the the oil and the blood from the sacrifice and anointed the priest . As long as we stay under the authority and anointing of Pastor Watts we will be safe. But get out from the anointing and your an open target to any spirit . It takes blood and oil to keep you safe.

  6. 5And Moses said unto the congregation, This is the thing which the LORD commanded to be done.

    6And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water.

    Mentoring. The man of God prepared others for the ministry not just spiritually, but in the physical. He not only told them, he showed them.

  7. This chapter speaks of submission. “So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.” We all submit to someone and/or something, a wise person will choose to submit to God. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  8. 12And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.

    Of for the anointing oil to be poured over us, and we become anointed and sanctified for use for the Master.

  9. 14And he brought the bullock for the sin offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock for the sin offering.

    the laying on of hands has always meant something.

  10. So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses

    Seems to be a common thread throughout this book… God chose Moses for a reason and it is evident by the willingness of Aaron and his sons to obey Moses’ commands.

  11. Moses bestowed the priestly garments and anointing to Aaron and his sons. There are awesome benefits in having a man of God in your life and being submitted under his covering.

  12. It took seven days for the priests to be concecrated. In our yearly fast we should concecrate ourselves to God’s service.

  13. Verse 36 in the NLT version says….

    “So Aaron and his sons did everything the Lord had commanded through Moses.”

    The Lord puts Leaders in our lives who will lead us as he has commanded! Thank you Lord for my Pastors.

  14. 36So Aaron and his sons did all things which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses.

    They did ALL the thing in which the Lord had commanded. How many times does God tell us, and we don’t do all the things the Lord commands?
