Leviticus 7:1-38
1. THIS IS the law of the guilt or trespass offering; it is most holy or sacred:
2. In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the guilt or trespass offering; the blood of it shall the priest dash against the altar round about.
3. And he shall offer all its fat, the fat tail and the fat that covers the entrails,
4. And the two kidneys and the fat that is on them at the loins, and the lobe or appendage of the liver, which he shall take away with the kidneys.
5. And the priest shall burn them on the altar for an offering made by fire to the Lord; it is a guilt or trespass offering.
6. Every male among the priests may eat of it; it shall be eaten in a sacred place; it is most holy.
7. As is the sin offering, so is the guilt or trespass offering; there is one law for them: the priest who makes atonement with it shall have it.
8. And the priest who offers any man's burnt offering, that priest shall have for himself the hide of the burnt offering which he has offered.
9. And every cereal offering that is baked in the oven and all that is prepared in a pan or on a griddle shall belong to the priest who offered it.
10. And every cereal offering, mixed with oil or dry, all the sons of Aaron may have, one as well as another.
11. And this is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings which shall be offered to the Lord:
12. If one offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the thank offering unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers spread with oil, and cakes of fine flour mixed with oil.
13. With cakes of leavened bread he shall offer his sacrifice of thanksgiving with the sacrifice of his peace offerings.
14. And of it he shall offer one cake from each offering as an offering to the Lord; it shall belong to the priest who dashes the blood of the peace offerings.
15. The flesh of the sacrifice of thanksgiving presented as a peace offering shall be eaten on the day that it is offered; none of it shall be left until morning.
16. But if the sacrifice of the worshiper's offering is a vow or a freewill offering, it shall be eaten the same day that he offers his sacrifice, and on the morrow that which remains of it shall be eaten;
17. But the remainder of the flesh of the sacrifice on the third day shall be [wholly] burned with fire.
18. If any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, then the one who brought it shall not be credited with it; it shall not be accepted. It shall be an abomination and an abhorred thing; the one who eats of it shall bear his iniquity and answer for it.
19. The flesh that comes in contact with anything that is not clean shall not be eaten; it shall be burned with fire. As for the meat, everyone who is clean [ceremonially] may eat of it.
20. But the one who eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of peace offerings that belong to the Lord when he is [ceremonially] unclean, that person shall be cut off from his people [deprived of the privileges of association with them].
21. And if anyone touches any unclean thing--the uncleanness of man or an unclean beast or any unclean abomination--and then eats of the flesh of the sacrifice of the Lord's peace offerings, that person shall be cut off from his people.
22. And the Lord said to Moses,
23. Say to the Israelites, You shall eat no kind of fat, of ox, or sheep, or goat.
24. The fat of the beast that dies of itself and the fat of one that is torn with beasts may be put to any other use, but under no circumstances are you to eat of it.
25. For whoever eats the fat of the beast from which men offer an offering made by fire to the Lord, that person shall be cut off from his people.
26. Moreover, you shall eat no blood of any kind, whether of bird or of beast, in any of your dwellings.
27. Whoever eats any kind of blood, that person shall be cut off from his people.
28. And the Lord said to Moses,
29. Tell the Israelites, He who offers the sacrifice of his peace offerings to the Lord shall bring his offering to the Lord; from the sacrifice of his peace offerings
30. He shall bring with his own hands the offerings made by fire to the Lord; he shall bring the fat with the breast, that the breast may be waved as a wave offering before the Lord.
31. The priest shall burn the fat on the altar, but the breast shall be for Aaron and his sons.
32. And the right thigh you shall give to the priest for an offering from the sacrifices of your peace offerings.
33. The son of Aaron who offers the blood of the peace offerings and the fat shall have the right thigh for his portion.
34. For I have taken the breast that was waved and the thigh that was offered from the Israelites, out of the sacrifices of their peace offerings, and have given them to Aaron the priest and to his sons as their perpetual due from the Israelites.
35. This is the anointing portion of Aaron and his sons out of the offerings to the Lord made by fire on the day when they were presented to minister to the Lord in the priest's office.
36. The Lord commanded this to be given them of the Israelites on the day when they were anointed. It is their portion perpetually throughout their generations.
37. This is the law of the burnt offering, the cereal offering, the sin offering, the guilt or trespass offering, the consecration offering, and the sacrifice of peace offerings,
38. Which the Lord ordered Moses on Mount Sinai on the day He commanded the Israelites to offer their sacrifices to the Lord, in the Wilderness of Sinai.

Leviticus 8:1-36
1. AND THE Lord said to Moses,
2. Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments [symbols of their office], and the anointing oil, and the bull of the sin offering, and the two rams, and the basket of unleavened bread;
3. And assemble all the congregation at the door of the Tent of Meeting.
4. Moses did as the Lord commanded him, and the congregation was assembled at the door of the Tent of Meeting.
5. Moses told the congregation, This is what the Lord has commanded to be done.
6. Moses brought Aaron and his sons and washed them with water.
7. He put on Aaron the long undertunic, girded him with the long sash, clothed him with the robe, put the ephod (an upper vestment) upon him, and girded him with the skillfully woven cords attached to the ephod, binding it to him.
8. And Moses put upon Aaron the breastplate; also he put in the breastplate the Urim and the Thummim [articles upon which the high priest put his hand when seeking the divine will concerning the nation].
9. And he put the turban or miter on his head; on it, in front, Moses put the shining gold plate, the holy diadem, as the Lord commanded him.
10. And Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it, and consecrated them.
11. And he sprinkled some of the oil on the altar seven times and anointed the altar and all its utensils, and the laver and its base, to consecrate them.
12. And he poured some of the anointing oil upon Aaron's head and anointed him to consecrate him.
13. And Moses brought Aaron's sons and put undertunics on them and girded them with sashes and wound turbans on them, as the Lord commanded Moses.
14. Then he brought the bull of the sin offering, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the bull of the sin offering.
15. Moses killed it and took the blood and put it on the horns of the altar round about with his finger and poured the blood at the base of the altar and purified and consecrated the altar to make atonement for it.
16. He took all the fat that was on the entrails, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys with their fat, and Moses burned them on the altar.
17. But the bull [the sin offering] and its hide, its flesh, and its dung he burned with fire outside the camp, as the Lord commanded Moses.
18. He brought the ram for the burnt offering, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of the ram.
19. And Moses killed it and dashed the blood upon the altar round about.
20. He cut the ram into pieces and Moses burned the head, the pieces, and the fat.
21. And he washed the entrails and the legs in water; then Moses burned the whole ram on the altar; it was a burnt sacrifice, for a sweet and satisfying fragrance, an offering made by fire to the Lord, as the Lord commanded Moses.
22. And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration and ordination, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.
23. And Moses killed it and took some of its blood and put it on the tip of Aaron's right ear, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the great toe of his right foot.
24. And he brought Aaron's sons and Moses put some of the blood on the tips of their right ears, and the thumbs of their right hands, and the great toes of their right feet; and Moses dashed the blood upon the altar round about.
25. And he took the fat, the fat tail, all the fat that was on the entrails, the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and their fat, and the right thigh;
26. And out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before the Lord, he took one unleavened cake, a cake of oiled bread, and one wafer and put them on the fat and on the right thigh;
27. And he put all these in Aaron's hands and his sons' hands and waved them for a wave offering before the Lord.
28. Then Moses took these things from their hands and burned them on the altar with the burnt offering as an ordination offering, for a sweet and satisfying fragrance, an offering made by fire to the Lord.
29. And Moses took the breast and waved it for a wave offering before the Lord; for of the ram of consecration and ordination it was Moses' portion, as the Lord commanded Moses.
30. And Moses took some of the anointing oil and some of the blood which was on the altar and sprinkled it on Aaron and his garments, and upon his sons and their garments also; so Moses consecrated Aaron and his garments, and his sons and his sons' garments.
31. And Moses said to Aaron and his sons, Boil the flesh at the door of the Tent of Meeting and there eat it with the bread that is in the basket of consecration and ordination, as I commanded, saying, Aaron and his sons shall eat it.
32. And what remains of the flesh and of the bread you shall burn with fire.
33. And you shall not go out of the door of the Tent of Meeting for seven days, until the days of your consecration and ordination are ended; for it will take seven days to consecrate and ordain you.
34. As has been done this day, so the Lord has commanded to do for your atonement.
35. At the door of the Tent of Meeting you shall remain day and night for seven days, doing what the Lord has charged you to do, that you die not; for so I am commanded.
36. So Aaron and his sons did all the things which the Lord commanded through Moses.

Psalms 24:7-10
7. Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be lifted up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in.
8. Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
9. Lift up your heads, O you gates; yes, lift them up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in.
10. Who is [He then] this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah [pause, and think of that]!

Proverbs 9:10-12
10. The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning (the chief and choice part) of Wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight and understanding.
11. For by me [Wisdom from God] your days shall be multiplied, and the years of your life shall be increased.
12. If you are wise, you are wise for yourself; if you scorn, you alone will bear it and pay the penalty.

Mark 1:1-22
1. THE BEGINNING [of the facts] of the good news (the Gospel) of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
2. Just as it is written in the prophet Isaiah: Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, who will make ready Your way--[Mal. 3:1.]
3. A voice of one crying in the wilderness [shouting in the desert], Prepare the way of the Lord, make His beaten tracks straight (level and passable)! [Isa. 40:3.]
4. John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness (desert), preaching a baptism [obligating] repentance (a change of one's mind for the better, heartily amending one's ways, with abhorrence of his past sins) in order to obtain forgiveness of and release from sins.
5. And there kept going out to him [continuously] all the country of Judea and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, as they were confessing their sins.
6. And John wore clothing woven of camel's hair and had a leather girdle around his loins and ate locusts and wild honey.
7. And he preached, saying, After me comes He Who is stronger (more powerful and more valiant) than I, the strap of Whose sandals I am not worthy or fit to stoop down and unloose.
8. I have baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.
9. In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10. And when He came up out of the water, at once he [John] saw the heavens torn open and the [Holy] Spirit like a dove coming down [to enter] into Him. [John 1:32.]
11. And there came a voice out from within heaven, You are My Beloved Son; in You I am well pleased. [Ps. 2:7; Isa. 42:1.]
12. Immediately the [Holy] Spirit [from within] drove Him out into the wilderness (desert),
13. And He stayed in the wilderness (desert) forty days, being tempted [all the while] by Satan; and He was with the wild beasts, and the angels ministered to Him [continually].
14. Now after John was arrested and put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the good news (the Gospel) of the kingdom of God,
15. And saying, The [appointed period of] time is fulfilled (completed), and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent (have a change of mind which issues in regret for past sins and in change of conduct for the better) and believe (trust in, rely on, and adhere to) the good news (the Gospel).
16. And passing along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon [Peter] and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net [to and fro] in the sea, for they were fishermen.
17. And Jesus said to them, Come after Me and be My disciples, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18. And at once they left their nets and [yielding up all claim to them] followed [with] Him [joining Him as disciples and siding with His party].
19. He went on a little farther and saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were in [their] boat putting their nets in order.
20. And immediately He called out to them, and [abandoning all mutual claims] they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and went off after Him [to be His disciples, side with His party, and follow Him].
21. And they entered into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath He went into the synagogue and began to teach.
22. And they were completely astonished at His teaching, for He was teaching as One Who possessed authority, and not as the scribes.
