29 And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow them, to minister unto me in the priest’s office: Take one young bullock, and two rams without blemish,
2 And unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered with oil, and wafers unleavened anointed with oil: of wheaten flour shalt thou make them.
3 And thou shalt put them into one basket, and bring them in the basket, with the bullock and the two rams.
4 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them with water.
5 And thou shalt take the garments, and put upon Aaron the coat, and the robe of the ephod, and the ephod, and the breastplate, and gird him with the curious girdle of the ephod:
6 And thou shalt put the mitre upon his head, and put the holy crown upon the mitre.
7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him.
8 And thou shalt bring his sons, and put coats upon them.
9 And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and put the bonnets on them: and the priest’s office shall be theirs for a perpetual statute: and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons.
K.J.V. Bible Text
In today’s reading, we began to read about the consecration of Aaron and his sons for the priesthood. We learned that they were to take a bullock and two rams without blemish and unleavened bread and cakes made of wheat flour anointed with oil. They were to put the fine bread and cakes in a basket and bring it along with the bullock.
Aaron and his sons were to be brought to the door of the tabernacle and washed with water and dressed in the proscribed garments and Aaron was to be anointed with oil.
All this was done to make the priesthood of Aaron and his offspring suitable to serve the Lord in his holy tabernacle.
The ceremony involved surely made a lasting impression upon the children of Israel and probably did much to impart upon Aaron and his sons the seriousness of their new station in life.
