Verse 1
And it came to pass on the a eighth day, [that] Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;

(a) After their consecration: for the seven days before, the priests were consecrated.

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

(b) Aaron enters into the possession of the priesthood: and offers the four principal sacrifices, the burnt offering, the sin offering, the peace offering, and the meat offering.

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

(c) Before the altar where his glory appeared.

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

(d) Read for the understanding of this peace, (Hebrews 4:5) , (Hebrews 7:27).

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

(e) That is, he laid them in order, and so they were burnt when the Lord sent down fire.

Verse 14

(f) All this must be understood of the preparation of the sacrifices which were burnt after, (Leviticus 9:24).

And the g breasts and the right shoulder Aaron waved [for] a wave offering before the LORD; as Moses commanded.

(g) Of the bullock and the ram.

Verse 22

(h) Because the altar was near the sanctuary, which was the upper end, therefore he is said to come down.

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