Exodus 29



Verses 38-46

Not without the lamb, you see; that morning and evening sacrifice must be the token and the way of God’s dealing with his people.

Exodus 29:46. And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, that brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them: I am the LORD their God.
