Leviticus 8

It happened on the eighth day, that Musa called Harun and his sons, and the elders of Israel; 2and he said to Harun, Take a calf from the herd for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before Allah. 3You shall speak to Bani-Israel, saying, ‘Take a male goat for a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both a year old, without blemish, for a burnt offering; 4and an ox and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before Allah; and a meal offering mixed with oil: for today Allah appears to you.‘”

5They brought what Musa commanded before the Tent of Meeting: and all the congregation drew near and stood before Allah. 6Musa said, This is the thing which Allahcommanded that you should do: and the glory of Allah shall appear to you. 7Musa said to Harun, Draw near to the altar, and offer your sin offering, and your burnt offering, and make atonement for yourself, and for the people; and offer the offering of the people, and make atonement for them; as Allah commanded.

8So Harun drew near to the altar, and killed the calf of the sin offering, which was for himself. 9The sons of Harun presented the blood to him; and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it on the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the base of the altar: 10but the fat, and the kidneys, and the cover from the liver of the sin offering, he burned upon the altar; as Allah commanded Musa. 11The flesh and the skin he burned with fire outside the camp. 12He killed the burnt offering; and Harun’s sons delivered the blood to him, and he sprinkled it on the altar all around. 13They delivered the burnt offering to him, piece by piece, and the head: and he burned them upon the altar. 14He washed the innards and the legs, and burned them on the burnt offering on the altar. 15He presented the people’s offering, and took the goat of the sin offering which was for the people, and killed it, and offered it for sin, like the first. 16He presented the burnt offering, and offered it according to the ordinance. 17He presented the meal offering, and filled his hand from there, and burned it upon the altar, besides the burnt offering of the morning. 18He also killed the ox and the ram, the sacrifice of peace offerings, which was for the people: and Harun’s sons delivered to him the blood, which he sprinkled on the altar all around, 19and the fat of the ox and of the ram, the fat tail, and that which covers the innards, and the kidneys, and the cover of the liver: 20and they put the fat upon the breasts, and he burned the fat on the altar: 21and the breasts and the right thigh Harun waved for a wave offering before Allah, as Musa commanded. 22Harun lifted up his hands toward the people, and blessed them; and he came down from offering the sin offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace offerings.

23Musa and Harun went into the Tent of Meeting, and came out, and blessed the people: and the glory of Allah appeared to all the people. 24There came forth fire from before Allah, and consumed the burnt offering and the fat upon the altar: and when all the people saw it, they shouted, and fell on their faces.
