He brought forth the second ram, which was the installation ram, and Aaron and his sons pressed their hands on the ram’s head.
Vayakrev et-ha’ayil hasheni eyl hamilu’im vayismechu Aharon uvanav et-yedeyhem al-rosh ha’ayil.
וַיַּקְרֵב אֶת-הָאַיִל הַשֵּׁנִי, אֵיל הַמִּלֻּאִים; וַיִּסְמְכוּ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם–עַל-רֹאשׁ הָאָיִל.

8:23
He slaughtered it, and Moses took some of its blood and placed it on Aaron’s right ear lobe, on his right thumb, and on his right big toe.
Vayishchat vayikach Moshe midamo vayiten al-tnuch ozen-Aharon hayemanit ve’al-bohen yado hayemanit ve’al-bohen raglo hayemanit.
וַיִּשְׁחָט–וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה מִדָּמוֹ, וַיִּתֵּן עַל-תְּנוּךְ אֹזֶן-אַהֲרֹן הַיְמָנִית; וְעַל-בֹּהֶן יָדוֹ הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן רַגְלוֹ הַיְמָנִית.

8:24
[Moses] brought forth Aaron’s sons, and he placed some of the blood on their right ear lobes, their right thumbs, and their right big toes. Moses sprinkled [the rest of] the blood on all sides of the altar.
Vayakrev et-beney Aharon vayiten Moshe min-hadam al-tnuch oznam hayemanit ve’al-bohen yadam hayemanit ve’al-bohen raglam hayemanit vayizrok Moshe et-hadam al-hamizbe’ach saviv.
וַיַּקְרֵב אֶת-בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן, וַיִּתֵּן מֹשֶׁה מִן-הַדָּם עַל-תְּנוּךְ אָזְנָם הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן יָדָם הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן רַגְלָם הַיְמָנִית; וַיִּזְרֹק מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַדָּם עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, סָבִיב.

8:25
He took the choice portions: The broad tail, all the fat on the stomachs, the lobe of the liver, the two kidneys along with their fat, and the right hind leg.
Vayikach et-hachelev ve’et-ha’alyah ve’et-kol-hachelev asher al-hakerev ve’et yoteret hakaved ve’et-shtey haklayot ve’et-chelbehen ve’et shok hayamin.
וַיִּקַּח אֶת-הַחֵלֶב וְאֶת-הָאַלְיָה, וְאֶת-כָּל-הַחֵלֶב אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַקֶּרֶב, וְאֵת יֹתֶרֶת הַכָּבֵד, וְאֶת-שְׁתֵּי הַכְּלָיֹת וְאֶת-חֶלְבְּהֶן; וְאֵת, שׁוֹק הַיָּמִין.

8:26
From the basket of unleavened bread, before God, he took one loaf of unleavened bread, one loaf of oil bread, and one flat loaf, and he placed them on the choice portions and the right hind leg.
Umisal hamatsot asher lifney Adonay lakach chalat matsah achat vechalat lechem shemen achat verakik echad vayasem al-hachalavim ve’al shok hayamin.
וּמִסַּל הַמַּצּוֹת אֲשֶׁר לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, לָקַח חַלַּת מַצָּה אַחַת וְחַלַּת לֶחֶם שֶׁמֶן אַחַת–וְרָקִיק אֶחָד; וַיָּשֶׂם, עַל-הַחֲלָבִים, וְעַל, שׁוֹק הַיָּמִין.

8:27
Moses placed all this in Aaron’s hands and in his sons’ hands, and he waved them in the prescribed motions as a wave offering before God.
Vayiten et-hakol al kapey Aharon ve’al kapey vanav vayanef otam tnufah lifney Adonay.
וַיִּתֵּן אֶת-הַכֹּל–עַל כַּפֵּי אַהֲרֹן, וְעַל כַּפֵּי בָנָיו; וַיָּנֶף אֹתָם תְּנוּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה.

8:28
Moses took it from their hands, and he burned it on the altar together with the burnt offering. This was the installation offering, an appeasing fragrance, a fire offering to God
Vayikach Moshe otam me’al kapeyhem vayakter hamizbechah al-ha’olah milu’im hem lere’ach nicho’ach isheh hu l’Adonay.
וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה אֹתָם מֵעַל כַּפֵּיהֶם, וַיַּקְטֵר הַמִּזְבֵּחָה עַל-הָעֹלָה; מִלֻּאִים הֵם לְרֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ, אִשֶּׁה הוּא לַיהוָה.

8:29
Moses took [the ram’s] chest, and made the prescribed motions for a wave offering before God. This was Moses’ own portion of the installation ram. [It was all done] as God had commanded Moses.
Vayikach Moshe et-hechazeh vayenifehu tenufah lifney Adonay me’eyl hamilu’im le-Moshe hayah lemanah ka’asher tsivah Adonay et-Moshe.
וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הֶחָזֶה, וַיְנִיפֵהוּ תְנוּפָה לִפְנֵי יְהוָה: מֵאֵיל הַמִּלֻּאִים, לְמֹשֶׁה הָיָה לְמָנָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה.
