Water, and scarlet Wool, and Hyrsop, and sprinkled both the Book,

and all the People. 20 Saying, This is the Blood of the Testament which God hath enjoined unto you.

21 Moreover he sprinkled likewise with Blood both the TABERNACLE, and all the Vessels of the Ministry.

22 And almost all things are by the Law PURGED with Blood; and without SHEDDING of Blood is no REMISSION.

23 It was therefore necessary that the PATTERNS of Things in the HeaVENS should be purified with chese; but the HEAVENLY Things themselves with BETTER SACRIFICES than these.

24 For Christ is not entred into the holy Places made with Hands, which are che FIGURES of the TRUE; but into Heaven itself, now to APPEAR in the PRESENCE of God for us.

25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the High PR IEST entreth into the HOLY PLACE every Year with BLOOD of others :

27 And as it is appointed unto Men once to die, but after this the JudgVENT:

28 SO CHRIST was once OFFERED to bear the Sins of many ; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second Time without Sin unto SALVATION.

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 Breast-plate, 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 Oyl, 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.

21 And thou shalt take of the Blood that is upon the Altar, and of the Anointing Oyl, and sprinkle it upon Aaron, and upon his Garments, and upon his Sons, and upon the Garments of his Sons with him: and he shall be hallowed, and his Garments, and his Sons, and his Sons Garments with him.

36 And thou shalt offer every Day a Bullock for a Sinoffering, for Atonement : and thou shalt cleanse the Altar, when thou hast made an Atonement for it, and thou shalt anoint it to sanctify it.

38 Now this is that which thou shalt offer upon the Altar ; two Lambs of the first Year, Day by Day continually.
