1 Moses consecrateth Aaron and his sonnes. 14 Their sinne offering. 18 Their burnt offring. 22 The ram of consecrations. 31 The place and time of their consecration.
7 And he put vpon him the coate, and girded him with the girdle, and clothed him with the robe, and put the Ephod vpon him, and he girded him with the curious girdle of the Ephod, and bound it vnto him therewith.
15 And he slew it, and Moses tooke the blood, and put it vpon the hornes of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and powred the blood at the bottome of the altar, and sanctified it, to make reconciliation vpon it.
21 And he washed the inwards and the legges in water, and Moses burnt the whole ramme vpon the Altar: It was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet sauour, and an offering made by fire vnto the Lord, as the Lord commanded Moses.
24 And he brought Aarons sonnes, and Moses put of the blood vpon the tippe of their right eare, and vpon the thumbs of their right hands, and vpon the great toes of their right feete: and Moses sprinkled the blood vpon the Altar round about.
30 And Moses tooke of the anoynting oyle, and of the blood which was vpon the Altar, and sprinckled it vpon Aaron, and vpon his garments, and vpon his sonnes, and vpon his sunnes garments with him: and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sonnes, and his sonnes garments with him.
31 ¶ And Moses said vnto Aaron and to his sonnes, Boile the flesh at the doore of the Tabernacle of the Congregation: and there eat it with the bread that is in the basket of consecrations, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sonnes shall eat it.31
View Wesley's Notes for Leviticus Chapter 8
8:3 All the congregation - The elders who represented all, and as many of the people as would, and could get thither, that all might be witnesses both of Aaron's commission from God, and of his work and business.
8:12 He poured - In a plentiful manner, as appears from #Psa 133:2|, whereas other persons and things were only sprinkled with it: because his unction was to typify the anointing of Christ with the Spirit, which was not given by measure to him. A measure of the same anointing is given to all believers.
8:14 The bullock - There were indeed seven bullocks to be offered at his consecration, one every day; but here he mentions only one, because he here describes only the work of the first day.
8:17 His hide - Which in the offerings for the people was not burnt, but given to the priest.
8:18 He brought the ram - Hereby they gave to God the glory of this great honour which was put upon them: and also signified the devoting themselves and all their service to God.
8:19 He - Either Moses, as in the following clause, or some other person by his appointment; which may be the reason why he is not named here, as he is to the sprinkling of the blood, which was an action more proper to the priest, and more essential to the sacrifice.
8:29 Moses's part - Who at this time administering the priest's office was to receive the priest's wages.
8:31 The flesh - That which was left of the ram, and particularly the breast, which was said to be Moses's part, #Lev 8:29|, and by him was given to Aaron, that he and his sons might eat of it, in token that they and only they should have the right to do so for the future.
8:33 Seven days - In each of which the same ceremonies were to be repeated, and other rites to be performed. He - Either God or Moses; for the words may be spoken by Moses, either in God's name or in his own; Moses speaking of himself in the third person, which is very common in scripture.
8:36 So Aaron and his sons did all things - And thus the covenant of life and peace, #Mal 2:5|, was made with them. But after all the ceremonies used in their consecration, one point was reserved for the honour of Christ's priesthood. They were made priests without an oath; but Christ with an oath, #Heb 7:21|. For neither these priests, nor their priesthood was to continue. But His is a perpetual and unchangeable priesthood.
