CHAPTER 6

Leviticus 6:8-30

Lev 6:8 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 9 Command ta-Aaron and ta-his sons, to say, This is the Torah of the Elevation Offering: She is the Elevation Offering upon the hearth upon the Altar all the night unto the breaking (morning), and the fire of the Altar, she shall burn on him. 10 And the Priest shall wear his extended robe of flax-linen, and shall wear the breeches of flax-linen upon his flesh, and shall lift up ta-the ashes which the fire, she had consumed ta-the Elevation Offering upon the Altar, and shall set them beside the Altar. 11 And shall strip off ta-his garments and wear other garments, and bring out ta-the ashes to outside of the Camp to a clean place. 12 And the fire upon the Altar, she shall burn on him; she shall not be extinguished: and the Priest shall feed wood upon her on the breaking (morning), on the breaking (morning), and shall arrange the Elevation Offering upon her; and shall burn as incense upon her the kheylev-fat of the Peace Offering. 13 A continual fire she shall burn upon the Altar; she shall not be extinguished.

14 And this is the Torah of the Food (Grain) Offering: The sons of Aaron shall bring her to the Face of
hwhy to the face of the Altar. 15 And shall lift him in his handful from the flour of the Food (Grain) Offering, and from her oil, and ta all the frankincense which is upon the Food (Grain) Offering, and shall burn as incense upon the Altar her Memorial Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy. 16 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the rest from her: the unleavened bread, she shall be eaten in the Holy Place; shall eat her in the Court of the Tent of Appointment. 17 She shall not be baked of leavening. I have given her their portion from my Fire Offering; she is a Holy of Holies as the Sin Offering and as the Guilt Offering. 18 Every male among the sons of Aaron shall eat her. A Statute of Ages for your generations from the Fire Offerings of hwhy: All that touches on them shall be holy.

19 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 20 This is a Karban Offering of Aaron and of his sons which they shall bring near to hwhy in the day of the anointing of him; a tenth of the ephah of flour of a continual Food (Grain) Offering of her half in the beaking (morning) and of her half in the mixing (evening). 21 She shall be made in the oil upon a griddle; you shall bring her fried: you shall bring forth cooked pieces of the Food (Grain) Offering for a pleasant scent to hwhy. 22 And the Priest from his sons of the anointed shall offer her in his stead: a Statute of Ages to hwhy; she shall be completely burned as incense, 23 and every Food Offering of a Priest, she shall be a Whole Burnt Offering: she shall not be eaten.

24 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 25 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, to say, This is the Torah of the Sin Offering: In the place where the Elevation Offering she is slaughtered shall the Sin Offering, she is slaughtered to the Face of hwhy: she is a Holy of Holies. 26 The Priest that offers the sin shall eat her: in the Holy Place, she shall be eaten in the Court of the Tent of Appointment. 27 All who touches on her flesh shall be holy: and whoever was sprinkled from her blood upon the garment which was sprinkled upon her, she shall be washed in the Holy Place.

28 And an earthen vessel which she is boiled in him shall be broken: and if was boiled in a vessel of copper, and shall be scoured, and shall be rinsed in the water. 29 Every male among the Priests shall eat of her: she is Holy of Holies. 30 And any Sin Offering which shall be brought from her blood to the Tent of Appointment to atone in the Sanctuary, she shall not be eaten: she shall be burned in the fire.

Verses eight through thirteen

8 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 9 Command ta-Aaron and ta-his sons, to say, This is the Torah of the Elevation Offering: She is the Elevation Offering upon the hearth upon the Altar all the night unto the breaking (morning), and the fire of the Altar, she shall burn on him. 10 And the Priest shall wear his extended robe of flax-linen, and shall wear the breeches of flax-linen upon his flesh, and shall lift up ta-the ashes which the fire, she had consumed ta-the Elevation Offering upon the Altar, and shall set them beside the Altar. 11 And shall strip off ta-his garments and wear other garments, and bring out ta-the ashes to outside of the Camp to a clean place. 12 And the fire upon the Altar, she shall burn on him; she shall not be extinguished: and the Priest shall feed wood upon her on the breaking (morning), on the breaking (morning), and shall arrange the Elevation Offering upon her; and shall burn as incense upon her the kheylev-fat of the Peace Offering. 13 A continual fire she shall burn upon the Altar; she shall not be extinguished.

Just a reminder, everything relates to the soul of man, because the soul is feminine- a.k.a. the Bride of Messiah. It is the soul that causes the sin and needs to be purified by these Elevation offerings. Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries stated in this week's Torah portion that everything relates to the soul. Monte Judah noted that last week's Torah portion of Vay-Yikra focus on the Israelites, but this week's Torah portion focus is on Aaron and his sons.

This segment connects to all the Elevation Offerings in last week's Torah portion of Vay-Yikra in the book of Leviticus.

In verse nine, it mentions a hearth.

Looking at the word HEARTH

The Hebrew word for "hearth" is "mohk-dah"- Mem, Vav, Quph, Dalet, Heh (
hdqwm). It is from Strong's Concordance number 4169, and its definition

Feminine of H4168; fuel: - burning.

a feminine form of 4168 "moh-kehd" (
dqwm) meaning

From H3344; a fire or fuel; abstractly a conflagration: - burning, hearth.

It is from 3344 "yah-kahd" (
dqy) meaning

A primitive root; to burn: - (be) burn (-ing), X from the hearth, kindle.

What is unique about this word is that this actual Hebrew word exists only one time in the entire Tanakh. Another thing about this word is that in the Hebrew text, the "Mem" is smaller.

Mokdah

 On the Jewish Magazine website on the Torah portion Tsav, Avi Lazerson's writing titled "The Element of Sacrifice" comments on the small Mem

"This week's portion continues to speak about the various sacrafices that were offered on the Altar. In verse Leviticus 6:2, the Torah stipulates that the sacrifice should remain on the fire-wood all night. The word for fire-wood, mokdah is written in the Torah with a small mem, the first letter. This is according to the tradition handed down to us from Moses on Mount Sinai.

The Rebbe of Kotzk, who lived approximately 150 years ago, comments that this is to teach us that a person should act with special zeal while fulfilling a Divine command. That is the reason that the fire-wood is to be kept burning through the night. Even through the darkest times we must always have fiery zeal in our actions.

But the small mem comes to teach us that the fiery zeal should remain concealed within us. It should not be something readily seen by an outsider. It is to be used only for our service to the Creator, and not for showing off.

In our time it is common for people to openly show their religious enthusiasm. Unfortunately, not each religious zealot has altruistic motives. Some like the attention, others enjoy feeling that they are self-sacrificing for G-d....

This is the special message of the small letter in the Torah scroll. May we all take it to heart."

In other words, let the fire of 
hwhy be through His motives and not our own. If we do it with ulterior motives, we would be doing a disservice to hwhy.

Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries commented on the small Mem, in his July 2004 Yavoh magazine under the article "The Jots and Tittles of Moses"

"The letter mem means water. It is also associated strongly with the chaos of waters. In particular it relates to the womb of a woman, when she breaks water. There is chaos in the house - a baby is about to be born. The shape of the mem is like a womb, the belly of a pregnant woman. It is from the belly (the womb) that a soul joins a body. It is also believed that the soul of a person is housed in the belly portion (the torso) of the body. A small mem here means that  when a person puts a sacrifice on the altar, they are to put their soul on the altar before God.  Paul was teaching this meaning when he said it this way. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God that present your bodies as a living sacrifices before God. Rom 12:2 The mercies of God is a reference to the altar service. We are living sacrifices because we are still here, but we have place our souls on the altar of God".

It is interesting that they have to wear two different changes of garments for this process. The only thing I can figure why is because one garment is to be used only inside the Tent, and the other garment is to be used outside the Tent.

The commandment of this requirement of the Continual Elevation Offering is the only other requirement to keep the fire alive like the lights on the Menorah.

In verse ten, the word used is "flax-linen", because it is a different word that the word "linen" is mentioned.

Looking at the following words:

FLAX-LINEN

The Hebrew word for flax-linen is "bahd"- Bet, Dalet (
db). It is from Strong's Concordance number 906, and its definition

Perhaps from H909 (in the sense of divided fibres); flaxen thread or yarn; hence a linen garment: - linen.

from 909 "bah-dahd" (
ddb), and its definition

A primitive root; to divide, that is, (reflexively) be solitary: - alone.

This is the same word as Strong's concordance number 905 "bah" (
db), for "alone", "apart", "by itself", etc. It is a play on the word that the fabric of the Priest's garment was "set apart" to be used to make the garment to do the Priestly service.

The other Hebrew word that is commonly used for the translation for linen is "sheysh"- Shin, Shin (
ss), the same, or similar Hebrew word for the number six.


STRIP

In verse eleven Hebrew word for strip is "pah-shaht"- Peh, Shin, Tet (
jsp). It is from Strong's Concordance number 6584, and its definition

A primitive root; to spread out (that is, deploy in hostile array); by analogy to strip (that is, unclothe, plunder, flay, etc.): - fall upon, flay, invade, make an invasion, pull off, put off, make a road, run upon, rush, set, spoil, spread selves (abroad), strip (off, self).

 This the same Hebrew word for the second level of the four levels of Hebraic learning.

The question that I have heard is "Why did the Priest change his garment to wear another one to take the ashes outside the camp to a clean place"? Because the first garment they wore to burn the sacrifice is an "inside job" in the Tent of Appointment. The garment used to do the sacrifice becomes holy by the sacrifice, as it is written in verse eighteen

18 ...all that touches on them shall be holy.

The Priest's garment is going to be touched by the animal by the Priest in handling it and working on it. Once the first garment becomes holy by that sacrifice, it has to stay "inside" the Tent of Appointment and it cannot leave the Tabernacle. Also, the first Priest garment contains the blood of the sacrificed animal, and the blood is not to leave the Tabernacle, because it's holy. Thus the Priest has to replace the first garment by wearing a second garment for the "oustide job" to take the ashes "outside" of the Tent of Appointment and "outside" the Camp to a clean place.



Verses fourteen through eighteen

14 And this is the Torah of the Food (Grain) Offering: The sons of Aaron shall bring her to the Face of hwhy to the face of the Altar. 15 And shall lift him in his handful from the flour of the Food (Grain) Offering, and from her oil, and ta all the frankincense which is upon the Food (Grain) Offering, and shall burn as incense upon the Altar her Memorial Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy. 16 And Aaron and his sons shall eat the rest from her: the unleavened bread, she shall be eaten in the Holy Place; shall eat her in the Court of the Tent of Appointment. 17 She shall not be baked of leavening. I have given her their portion from my Fire Offering; she is a Holy of Holies as the Sin Offering and as the Guilt Offering. 18 Every male among the sons of Aaron shall eat her. A Statute of Ages for your generations from the Fire Offerings of hwhy: All that touches on them shall be holy.

This is the similar account from the Torah portion of Vay-Yikra, in the book of Leviticus chapter two. The Levitical Priests are the only ones required to eat dominantly unleavened bread compared to the other tribes that eat leavened bread, except on Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Also, the Priests have to eat it in the Court area compared to some offerings that were to be eaten at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment.

In verse seventeen, the phrase "Holy of Holies" is commonly translated in most English versions as "most holy". In the Hebrew text, it says "kodesh kah-dahseem (
Mysdq sdq)".



Verses nineteen through twenty three

19 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 20 This is a Karban Offering of Aaron and of his sons which they shall bring near to hwhy in the day of the anointing of him; a tenth of the ephah of flour of a continual Food (Grain) Offering of her half in the beaking (morning) and of her half in the mixing (evening). 21 She shall be made in the oil upon a griddle; you shall bring her fried: you shall bring forth cooked pieces of the Food (Grain) Offering for a pleasant scent to hwhy. 22 And the Priest from his sons of the anointed shall offer her in his stead: a Statute of Ages to hwhy; she shall be completely burned as incense, 23 and every Food Offering of a Priest, she shall be a Whole Burnt Offering: she shall not be eaten.

This is the first time mentioned that the High Priest and his sons were to give "a gift" to 
hwhy, in this case the Food (Grain) Offering by giving a half of the one tenth of the ephah, or 1/20 (five percent) of an ephah each.

The Whole Burnt Offering was to be completely burned and not be eaten was a type and shadow of Yeshua being completely crucified at the cross.

Indirectly related, another account of a Whole Burnt Offering was implied that if the people of a town or city was lead by a deceiver, drawing them away from following 
hwhy, is to be completely destroyed, and is mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy 13:12 If you shall hear in one of your cities, which 
hwhy your Elohim is giving to you to dwell there, to say, 13 Have gone out men, the sons of Belial, from your midst, and they have drawn away ta-the dwellers of their city, to say, We will go and we will serve other elohim, which you have not known; 14 And you shall seek, and you shall examine, and ask diligently; and, behold, the truth has established the word, was done this abomination in your midst; 15 Striking, you shall strike ta-the dwellers of her city by the mouth of the sword, destroying her, and ta-all that is in her, and ta-her cattle, by the mouth of the sword. 16 And ta-all her spoil you shall gather to the midst of her street, and you shall burn ta-the city in the fire, and ta-all her spoil shall be a Whole Burnt Offering to hwhy, your Elohim: and she shall be a heap of ages; she shall not be built again.

Looking at the word COMPLETELY/WHOLE BURNT OFFERING

The Hebrew word for comepletely/Whole Burnt Offering is "kahleel"- Kuph, Lamed, Yod, Lamed (
lylk). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3632, and its definition

From H3634; complete; as noun, the whole (specifically a sacrifice entirely consumed); as adverb fully: - all, every whit, flame, perfect (-ion), utterly, whole burnt offering (sacrifice), wholly.

from 3634 "kahlahl" (
llk), and its definition

A primitive root; to complete: - (make) perfect.

This Hebrew word is used fifteen times in the entire Tanakh, and so far it is used only two times as the Whole Burnt Offering.



Verse twenty four through twenty seven

24 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 25 Speak to Aaron and to his sons to say, This is the Torah of the Sin Offering: In the place where the Elevation Offering she is slaughtered shall the Sin Offering, she is slaughtered to the Face of hwhy: she is a Holy of Holies. 26 The Priest that offers the sin shall eat her: in the Holy Place, she shall be eaten in the Court of the Tent of Appointment. 27 All who touches on her flesh shall be holy: and whoever was sprinkled from her blood upon the garment which was sprinkled upon her, she shall be washed in the Holy Place.

When it says that the offering is to be killed to 
hwhy's Face, the animal is to face the entrance to the Tent where the Ark of the Covenant is located.



Verses twenty eight through thirty


28 And an earthen vessel which she is boiled in him shall be broken: and if was boiled in a vessel of copper, and shall be scoured, and shall be rinsed in the water. 29 Every male among the Priests shall eat of her: she is Holy of Holies. 30 And any Sin Offering which shall be brought from her blood to the Tent of Appointment to atone in the Sanctuary, she shall not be eaten: she shall be burned in the fire.

THE SYMBOLIC MEANINGS OF AN EARTHEN VESSEL AND A COPPER VESSEL:

Earthen Vessel (a.k.a. Clay): Man
Copper: Man, Judgment, Suffering-(source: maranathalife.com)

The reason an earthen vessel was to be broken, because it is porous. When the earthen vessel is used to have an offering to be boiled in it, it cannot be used again. When the offering is boiled in a earthen vessel, those pores will still hold any remnants of the offering that was boiled in preparation which is its natural for the clay element. This would be symbolized by having one's "sins" held in the pores of an earthen vessel, and the symbolic "sins" in the pores of the earthen vessel were to be dealt with at the Altar. It is like saying that one's sins are still in the vessel, and the offering that was in the vessel which was sacrified at the Altar was all in vain. Thus, the "sins" of the remnants of the offering that was boiled in the earthen vessel which is still stuck in the vessel has to be destroyed.







CHAPTER 7

Leviticus 7:1-38

Lev 7:1 And this is the Torah of the Guilt Offering: he is a Holy of Holies. 2
They shall slaughter ta-the Guilt Offering in the place where they slaughter ta-the Elevation Offering: and ta-his blood shall be sprinkled all around upon the Altar. 3 And he shall bring with him ta all his kheylev-fat; ta the tail fat, and ta-the kheylev-fat which covers ta-the inwards, 4 And ta the two kidneys, and ta-the kheylev-fat which is upon them which is upon the loins, and ta-the caul (fold) which is upon the liver, upon the kidneys, shall remove her: 5 And the Priest shall burn them as incense to the Altar of a Fire Offering to hwhy: he is a Guilt Offering. 6 Every male among the Priests shall eat him in the Holy Place: he is a Holy of Holies 7 as the Sin Offering, as the Guilt Offering: one Torah for them: the Priest who shall atone on him shall be for him. 8 And the Priest that brings ta-the Elevation Offering, each skin of the Elevation Offering that was brought to the Priest shall be for him. 9 And every Food (Grain) Offering which she is baked in the oven, or all that is made on a griddle, or upon a fryingpan is to the Priest that brings her near. 10 And every Food (Grain) Offering mixed in the oil, or dry, she shall be for all the sons of Aaron, each as his brother.

11 And this is the Torah of a Sacrifice of the Peace Offering which shall shall be brought near to hwhy. 12 If shall bring him near upon thanksgiving and shall bring near upon the Sacrifice of Thanksgiving of unleavened cakes mixed in the oil, or unleavened wafers anointed in the oil, or flour fried of cakes mixed in the oil. 13 Shall bring near his Karban Offering upon the Sacrifice of Thanksgiving of his Peace Offering upon cakes of leavened bread. 14 And shall bring near of him one from every Karban Offering of a Heave Offering to hwhy to the Priest that is sprinkling ta-the blood of the Peace Offering, shall be to him. 15 And the flesh of the Sacrifice of Thanksgiving of his Peace Offering shall be eaten in the day of his Karban Offering, shall not be left from him until breaking (morning).

16 And if a Vow Offering or a Free Will Offering is the Sacrifice of his Karban Offering in the day he brings ta-his sacrifice, shall be eaten: and from the morrow, and the remainder of him shall be eaten: 17 and the remainder of the flesh of the Sacrifice on the third day shall be burned up in the fire. 18 And if eaten, shall be eaten from the flesh of the Sacrifice of his Peace Offering on the third day shall not be accepted; the one bringing him shall not be reckoned to him; shall be an abomination; and the soul that ate of him, she shall bear her iniquity. 19 And the flesh that touches on any uncleanness shall not be eaten; shall be burned up in the fire: and shall eat flesh of all the clean flesh. 20 And the soul whom she eats the flesh of the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering which is to hwhy, and his uncleanness is upon him, and the soul, she shall be cut off from her People. 21 And if a soul, she touches on any uncleanness among the uncleanness of an Adam, or among an unclean beast, or among any unclean creeper, and eats from the flesh of the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering which is to hwhy, and the soul, she shall be cut off from her People.

22 And hwhy spoke to Moses to say, 23 Speak to the Sons of Israel to say, You shall not eat of any kheylev-fat of an ox, or of a sheep, or of a goat. 24 And the kheylev-fat of a carcase or the kheylev-fat of a torn thing shall be used for any work: and eating, you shall not eat him. 25 For any one eating the kheylev-fat of the animal which shall be brought near of her of a Fire Offering to hwhy, and the soul that eats shall be cut off from her People. 26 And you shall not eat any blood in any of your dwellings, of fowl and of animal. 27 Any soul whom she eats any blood, and the soul, she shall be cut off from her People.

28 And hwhy spoke to Moses to say, 29 Speak to the Sons of Israel to say, the one bringing near ta-the Sacrifice of his Peace Offering to hwhy shall bring ta-his Karban Offering to hwhy from the Sacrifice of his Peace Offering. 30 His hands, she shall bring of ta the Fire Offerings of hwhy ta-the kheylev-fat upon the breast, shall bring him ta the breast to wave him of a Wave Offering to the Face of hwhy. 31 And the Priest shall burn as incense ta-the kheylev-fat to the Altar: and the breast shall be for Aaron and for his sons. 32 And you shall give of a Heave Offering of ta the right shoulder leg to the Priest of the Sacrifices of your Peace Offerings, 33 the one bringing ta-the blood of the Peace Offering and ta-the kheylev-fat from the sons of Aaron, she shall be to him the shoulder leg of the right for a portion, 34 for I have taken ta-a breast of the Wave Offering and ta a shoulder leg of the Heave Offering from ta the Sons of Israel of the Sacrifices of their Peace Offerings, and I have given them to Aaron, the Priest, and to his sons for a Statute of Ages from ta the Sons of Israel.

35 This is the anointing of Aaron, and the anointing of his sons, from the Fire Offerings of 
hwhy, in the day of bringing them near for priestly acts to hwhy; 36 Which hwhy commanded to give to them from ta the Sons of Israel in the day of His anointing of them of a Statute of Ages for their generations.

37 This is the Torah for the Elevation Offering for the Food (Grain) Offering, and for the Sin Offering, and for the Guilt Offering, and for the Consecrations, and for the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering; 38 which 
hwhy commanded ta-Moses in Mount Sinai in the day of his commanding ta-the Sons of Israel to bring near ta-their Karban Offerings to hwhy in the Wilderness of Sinai.


(NOTE: Not all verses will have comments)


There are seventy six Aleph-Tavs in this chapter alone.


Verses One through five


1 And this is the Torah of the Guilt Offering: he is a Holy of Holies. 2 They shall slaughter ta-the Guilt Offering in the place where they slaughter ta-the Elevation Offering: and ta-his blood shall be sprinkled all around upon the Altar. 3 And he shall bring with him ta all his kheylev-fat; ta the tail fat, and ta-the kheylev-fat which covers ta-the inwards, 4 And ta the two kidneys, and ta-the kheylev-fat which is upon them which is upon the loins, and ta-the caul (fold) which is upon the liver, upon the kidneys, shall remove her: 5 And the Priest shall burn them as incense to the Altar of a Fire Offering to hwhy: he is a Guilt Offering.

Regarding
this week's Torah portion, Rico Cortes of Wisdom In Torah Ministries noted that the Guilt Offering is similar to the Elevation Offering, becuase hwhy covers the People's true identity of their Guilt Offering from the People. That way they will not not know what offering the man is bringing, hence hiding the person's shame.


In verses three through five, it shows the various organs and fat that is removed to be burned on the Altar.
The three main parts mentioned in the bullock: the kheylev-fat, the two kidneys and the caul (lobe) of the liver. As I mentioned in last week's Torah portion of Vay-Yikra, in the book of Exodus, these three main areas of fats represent each items relating to the three parts of the soul:

The Kheylev-Fat: The Mind
The Two Kidneys: The Emotions
The Caul (Lobe) of the Liver: The Will




Verses six and seven

6 Every male among the Priests shall eat him in the Holy Place: he is a Holy of Holies 7 as the Sin Offering, as the Guilt Offering: one Torah for them: the Priest who shall atone on him shall be for him.

It says this, because certain parts of the animals provided for these offerings are to be for the Priests for food.

Indirectly related, this principle was implied with the Torah of the Passover for both the native born and for the stranger, and it is noted in the Torah portion of Bo, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 12:43 And hwhy said to Moses and Aaron, This is the Statute of the Passover: Every son of a foreigner shall not eat on him: 44 And every servant of a man purchased of silver, and you have circumcised him, then shall eat on him. 45 A dweller and a hired servant shall not eat on him. 46 Shall be eaten in one house; you shall not go out with the flesh outside from the house; and you shall not break a bone on him. 47 All the Congregation of Israel shall prepare him. 48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with you, and you do the Passover to hwhy, every male to him shall be circumcised, and then shall come near to prepare him; and shall be like the native of the land: and anyone uncircumcised shall not eat on him. 49 One Torah shall be to the native, and to the stranger that sojourns in your midst.

 When it says this, it does not mean according to the Jews that there are two different Torahs, one for the Jew and one for the non-Jew, but it is the "same" Torah for "both" of them.


In the book of Numbers, it reveals that the stranger also could be involved with the offerings in the Torah portion of Sh'lakh L'kha, in the book of Numbers

Numbers 15:8 And if you prepare a son of a herd of an Elevation Offering, or a Sacrifice of a Special Vow, or a Peace Offering to hwhy: 9 And shall bring upon a son of the herd a Food Offering of flour of three tenths mixed in the oil of half of the hin, 10 and you shall bring wine for a Drink Offering a half of the hin of a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy. 11 As thus shall be done for the one bullock, or for the one ram, or of the flock among the sheep, or among the goats 12 according to the number that you shall prepare, as thus you shall do for the one according to their number. 13 All the natives shall do ta-these as thus to bring a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy. 14 And if shall sojourn a stranger with you, or whoever is in your midst for your generations, and does a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy; as which you shall do, so shall do. 15 One Statute for you and for the stranger that sojourns, a Statute of Ages for your generations: As you, as the stranger, shall be to the Face of hwhy. 16 One Torah and one Ordinance shall be for you and for the stranger that sojourns with you.


By the way,
in this week's Torah portion passage in verses one through seven ties into the account of the Guilt Offering, mentioned in Leviticus 5:14-6:7



V
erse eight

8 And the Priest that brings ta-the Elevation Offering, each skin of the Elevation Offering that was brought to the Priest shall be for him.

Anyone wonder why they would receive "skins"? First, realize that the Levites do not have any livestock to herd, or sheep and goats to shepherd. They depend on the offerings to receive food to eat. We also see that this verse shows that the Levites were also provided with "skins" for their homes and familes to whatever use they need for the moments in time: to make clothes, to make or patch up their tents, vessels (i.e. wineskins), etc.



Verses nine and ten

9 And every Food (Grain) Offering which she is baked in the oven, or all that is made on a griddle, or upon a fryingpan is to the Priest that brings her near. 10 And every Food (Grain) Offering mixed in the oil, or dry, she shall be for all the sons of Aaron, each as his brother.

When it says "each as his brother", it refers to the varioius kinds of the methods that breads are made: The first part of the verse "mixed in oil, or dry", meaning one brother is the flour that is mixed in oil, and the second brother is the flour that is not. These are types and shadows of the various kinds of people, a.k.a "brohters" (and sisters) who will part of the family of hwhy through Yeshua, the Living Bread, like the mixed multitude who were part of the Israelite nation. Anyone heard the phrase "My brother from another mother"?



Verse eleven through fifteen

11 And this is the Torah of a Sacrifice of the Peace Offering which shall shall be brought near to hwhy. 12 If shall bring him near upon thanksgiving and shall bring near upon the Sacrifice of Thanksgiving of unleavened cakes mixed in the oil, or unleavened wafers anointed in the oil, or flour fried of cakes mixed in the oil. 13 Shall bring near his Karban Offering upon the Sacrifice of Thanksgiving of his Peace Offering upon cakes of leavened bread. 14 And shall bring near of him one from every Karban Offering of a Heave Offering to hwhy to the Priest that is sprinkling ta-the blood of the Peace Offering, shall be to him. 15 And the flesh of the Sacrifice of Thanksgiving of his Peace Offering shall be eaten in the day of his Karban Offering, shall not be left from him until breaking (morning).

This is a gift of the Peace Offering of Thanksgiving. This would make sense, because no one can give a Peace Offering if one has sinned. This is an addenda from the Peace Offering in Leviticus 3:1-17.

SACRIFICE OF THE PEACE OFFERING OF THANKSGIVING:

1. The Sacrifice of the three options of the Peace Offerings in Leviticus 3:1-17
2. Unleavened bread:
a. Unleavened caked mixed in the oil
or
b. Unleavened wafers anointed in the oil
or
c. flour of fried caked mixed in the oil
3. Upon caked of leavened bread

I have yet to figure out why they were to bring leavened cakes of bread upon one of the three options of the unleavened bread. The only thing I can figure so far is that the two leavened loaved represented the Two Houses of Israel, and the unleavened bread is symbolic of Yeshua with the oil symbolic of the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit).

According to Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries, the Thanksgiving Offering is a result of one feeling complete or of something that one felt fulfilled.

Indirectly related, a good example of a Thanksgiving Offering was when David wanted to drink from the waters of Meriba, and it is noted in the book of the Chronicles

1 Chronicles 11:16 And David was then in the hold, and the Philistines' garrison was then at Bethlehem. 17 And David longed, and said, Oh that one would give me drink of the water of the well of Bethlehem, that is at the gate! 18 And the three brake through the host of the Philistines, and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem, that was by the gate, and took it, and brought it to David: but David would not drink of it, but poured it out to hwhy, 19 And said, My Elohim forbid it me, that I should do this thing: shall I drink the blood of these men that have put their lives in jeopardy? for with the jeopardy of their lives they brought it. Therefore he would not drink it. These things did these three mightiest.

What David did was an act of a Thanksgiving Offering to hwhy, because he would not drink it for the mens' sake who risked their lives to get the water for David. He received fulfillment to do this to hwhy for the sake of the three men.

Looking at the following words:

THANKSGIVING

The Hebrew word for Thanksgiving Offering is "toh-dah"- Tav, Vav, Dalet, Heh (
hdwt). It is from Strong's Concordance number 8426, and its definition

From H3034; properly an extension of the hand, that is, (by implication) avowal, or (usually) adoration; specifically a choir of worshippers: - confession, (sacrifice of) praise, thanks (-giving, offering).

from 3034 "yah-dah" (
hdy), and its definition

A primitive root; used only as denominative from H3027; literally to use (that is, hold out) the hand; physically to throw (a stone, an arrow) at or away; especially to revere or worship (with extended hands); intensively to bemoan (by wringing the hands): - cast (out), (make) confess (-ion), praise, shoot, (give) thank (-ful, -s, -sgiving).


HEAVE OFFERING


The Hebrew word for Heave Offering is "t'roomah"- Tav, Resh, Vav, Mem, Heh (
hmwrt). It is from Strong's concordance number 8641, and its definition

(The second form used in Deu_12:11); from H7311; a present (as offered up), especially in sacrifice or as tribute: - gift, heave offering ([shoulder]), oblation, offered (-ing).

from 7311 "room" (
mwr), and its definition

A primitive root; to be high actively to rise or raise (in various applications, literally or figuratively): - bring up, exalt (self), extol, give, go up, haughty, heave (up), (be, lift up on, make on, set up on, too) high (-er, one), hold up, levy, lift (-er) up, (be) lofty, (X a-) loud, mount up, offer (up), + presumptuously, (be) promote (-ion), proud, set up, tall (-er), take (away, off, up), breed worms.


The Heave Offering was first mentioned in the Torah portion of... what else?.... T'rumah,
in the book of Exodus,

Exodus 25:1 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 2 Speak to the Sons of Israel, and take for Me a Heave Offering: From ta every man who impels him his heart, you shall take ta-My Heave Offering. 3 And this is the Heave Offering which you shall take from them; gold, and silver, and copper, 4 and blue, and purple, and crimson worm, and fine linen, and goat hair, 5 and skins of rams with reds, and skins of antelopes, and shittim wood, 6 oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for incense of sweetness, 7 stone of the onyx, and stones for fill for the Ephod and for the Breast Pocket. 8 And they shall make for Me a Sanctuary; and I will dwell in their midst.

and the Priests that entered into the Tabernacle for the first time noted in the Torah portion of T'tsavveh, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 29:26 And you shall take ta-the breast from the Ram of the Consecration which is for Aaron, and you shall wave him for a Wave Offering to the Face of hwhy: and shall be for you for a portion. 27 And you shall sanctify ta the breast of the Wave Offering, and ta the shoulder-leg of the Heave Offering which is waved and which is heaved up from the Ram of the Consecration which is for Aaron and which is for his sons: 28 And shall be for Aaron and for his sons for a Statute of Ages from ta the Sons of Israel: for he is a Heave Offering: and shall be a Heave Offering from ta the Sons of Israel from the Sacrifices of their Peace Offerings of their Heave Offerings to hwhy.

and all the males, twenty years and up giving a half shekel to 
hwhy for a Heave Offering noted in the Torah portion of Ki Thisa, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 30:11 
And hwhy spoke to Moses to say, 12 When you lift up ta-the head of the Sons of Israel to their number, and they shall give each, a ransom of his soul, to hwhy in numbering them; and shall not be a plague on them in numbering them. 13 This they shall give, everyone going over their count, half of the shekel on the Shekel of the Sanctuary: the shekel is twenty gerahs: A half of the shekel shall be a Heave Offering to hwhy. 14 All going over among their counted from a son of twenty years and upward shall give a Heave Offering to hwhy. 15 The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less from half of the shekel to give ta-a Heave Offering of hwhy to atone upon your souls.


Based on what this week's Torah portion passage says, the Sacrifice of Thanksgiving Offering occured only during the night, because it says in verse fifteen that it was not to be left during the breaking (morning).
As I noted, this is an act of general thanksgiving to the Priests, that does not require atonement. This Sacrifice of the Thanksgiving Offering is the Priests' version of "the Happy Hour" of feasting during the night, and it is only for that time the Priests could partake of it and burn the remainder of it in the morning. So the Priests partied like its 1999 BC :) .



Verses sixteen through twenty-one

16 And if a Vow Offering or a Free Will Offering is the Sacrifice of his Karban Offering in the day he brings ta-his sacrifice, shall be eaten: and from the morrow, and the remainder of him shall be eaten: 17 and the remainder of the flesh of the Sacrifice on the third day shall be burned up in the fire. 18 And if eaten, shall be eaten from the flesh of the Sacrifice of his Peace Offering on the third day shall not be accepted; the one bringing him shall not be reckoned to him; shall be an abomination; and the soul that ate of him, she shall bear her iniquity. 19 And the flesh that touches on any uncleanness shall not be eaten; shall be burned up in the fire: and shall eat flesh of all the clean flesh. 20 And the soul whom she eats the flesh of the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering which is to hwhy, and his uncleanness is upon him, and the soul, she shall be cut off from her People. 21 And if a soul, she touches on any uncleanness among the uncleanness of an Adam, or among an unclean beast, or among any unclean creeper, and eats from the flesh of the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering which is to hwhy, and the soul, she shall be cut off from her People.

Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries noted that this Vow Offering is one who "speaks" that they want to make an offering to 
hwhy, and this offering does not specify what animal is to be brought. It is up to the person who brings it, and that is why it is considered also as a Free Will Offering. Also, it could be that if someone makes a vow to do something that is beneficial to hwhy, and they provide their offering to hwhy as part of their vow. One thing regarding this offering for a vow is that they are not to bring an animal that is not perfect. It is noted later in the Torah portion of Emor, in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 22:21 And if a man shall bring near a Sacrifice of Peace Offerings to hwhy to accomplish a Vow Offering or of a Freewill Offering among the herd or among the flock shall be perfect for acceptance; shall not be any blemish on him: 22 blind, or broken, or maimed, or a flow, or scurvy, or scabbed, you shall not bring these near to hwhy, and you shall not make a Fire Offering with them upon the Altar to hwhy. 23 And an ox or a lamb, deformed or maimed, you shall make him of a Freewill Offering; and shall not be accepted for a Vow Offering. 24 And bruised, and crushed, and broken, and cut, you shall not bring near to hwhy; and you shall not do in your land. 25 And from a hand of a son of a foriegner, you shall not bring near ta-the Bread of your Elohim, from any of these; for their corruption is in them, a blemish is in them: they shall not be accepted to you.

Looking at the word VOW OFFERING

The Hebrew word for Vow Offering is "neh-dehr"- Nun, Dalet, Resh (
rdn). It is from Strong's Concordance number 5088, and its definition

From H5087; a promise (to God); also (concretely) a thing promised: - vow ([-ed]).

from 5087 "nah-dahr" (
rdn), and its definition

A primitive root; to promise (positively, to do or give something to God): - (make a) vow.


Though Strong's did not say it, it is a Vow Offering.

According to this week's Torah portion passage, the application here is the same flesh that is to be eaten for two days. Indirectly related, this is what it says in the book of the prophet Hosea in the King James Version

Hosea 6:2 After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.

The Hebrew word for 'keep us alive' is "khayah"- to live. This is what it should say from the Hebrew:

Hosea 6:2 Shall keep us alive with two days: shall raise us up in the third day, and we shall live to His Face.

This act of eating this same flesh is symbolic of Yeshua who is "the Living Flesh", and that we in Messiah and those before us had or have been partaking by eating "His Flesh" for the past 2,000 years, or "two days". To 
hwhy, a day is as a thousand years as noted in the book of the apostle Peter

2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with hwhy as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

When Yeshua comes back in "the third day", or the 3,000th year, He will be on the earth. The reason the Priests were to not eat of the flesh on the third day would be saying that Yeshua would not be coming back on the third day, or the 3,000th year, because the Priests would be symbolically "nullifying" Yeshua's return. That is why 
hwhy said to the Priests to not eat of it on "the third day".

Looking at the word ABOMINATION

In verse eighteen, the Hebrew word for abomination is "peeg-gool"- Peh, Gimel, Vav, Lamed (
lwgp). It is from Strong's Concordance number 6292, and its definition

From an unused root meaning to stink; properly fetid, that is, (figuratively) unclean (ceremonially): - abominable (-tion, thing).

This is where we get our modern English word "pig", without the Vav and Lamed", or "piglet". If only the non-Hebraic Roots brethren understood this Hebrew-English connection.

Indirectly related, when the demons of "Legion" requested to Yeshua for them to go into the "pigs", they were saying to Yeshua 'let us go into the abominations'. It is noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 8:28 And when He was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met Him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. 29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with Thee, Yeshua, Thou Son of Elohim? art Thou come hither to torment us before the time? 30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. 31 So the devils besought Him, saying, If Thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. 32 And He said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

If there was a herd of sheep, Yeshua would not make them go into them, because they were "clean" animals. Yeshua located Himself to the man with the legion of demons at the time where there were a cluster of pigs, because they were "unclean".

If only the majority of non-Hebraic roots believers would realize this understanding.



Verses twenty two through twenty seven

22 And hwhy spoke to Moses to say, 23 Speak to the Sons of Israel to say, You shall not eat of any kheylev-fat of an ox, or of a sheep, or of a goat. 24 And the kheylev-fat of a carcase or the kheylev-fat of a torn thing shall be used for any work: and eating, you shall not eat him. 25 For any one eating the kheylev-fat of the animal which shall be brought near of her of a Fire Offering to hwhy, and the soul that eats shall be cut off from her People. 26 And you shall not eat any blood in any of your dwellings, of fowl and of animal. 27 Any soul whom she eats any blood, and the soul, she shall be cut off from her People.

When it says in verse twenty four that the kheylev-fat is to be used for work, it means to use it, as an example, like "grease" or "a lubrication agent" for mechanical purposes, for waterproofing. It was used for those means in its day.

In general, the kheylev-fat is not fit to eat. To 
hwhy, eating the kheylev-fat is playing Elohim and making oneself an elohim. Also, eating the kheylev-fat is taking away the pleasant scent for hwhy Himself to smell.



Verses twenty eight through thirty eight

28 And hwhy spoke to Moses to say, 29 Speak to the Sons of Israel to say, the one bringing near ta-the Sacrifice of his Peace Offering to hwhy shall bring ta-his Karban Offering to hwhy from the Sacrifice of his Peace Offering. 30 His hands, she shall bring of ta the Fire Offerings of hwhy ta-the kheylev-fat upon the breast, shall bring him ta the breast to wave him of a Wave Offering to the Face of hwhy. 31 And the Priest shall burn as incense ta-the kheylev-fat to the Altar: and the breast shall be for Aaron and for his sons. 32 And you shall give of a Heave Offering of ta the right shoulder leg to the Priest of the Sacrifices of your Peace Offerings, 33 the one bringing ta-the blood of the Peace Offering and ta-the kheylev-fat from the sons of Aaron, she shall be to him the shoulder leg of the right for a portion, 34 for I have taken ta-a breast of the Wave Offering and ta a shoulder leg of the Heave Offering from ta the Sons of Israel of the Sacrifices of their Peace Offerings, and I have given them to Aaron, the Priest, and to his sons for a Statute of Ages from ta the Sons of Israel. 35 This is the anointing of Aaron, and the anointing of his sons, from the Fire Offerings of hwhy, in the day of bringing them near for priestly acts to hwhy; 36 Which hwhy commanded to give to them from ta the Sons of Israel in the day of His anointing of them of a Statute of Ages for their generations. 37 This is the Torah for the Elevation Offering for the Food (Grain) Offering, and for the Sin Offering, and for the Guilt Offering, and for the Consecrations, and for the Sacrifice of the Peace Offering; 38 which hwhy commanded ta-Moses in Mount Sinai in the day of his commanding ta-the Sons of Israel to bring near ta-their Karban Offerings to hwhy in the Wilderness of Sinai.

This is also in reference to the Peace Offering in Leviticus 3:1-17.
This is where hwhy goes more into detail in certain parts of this offering regarding the breasts and the shoulder legs:

THE SACFIFICE OF THE PEACE OFFERINGS:

1. The Peace Offering animals from Leviticus 3:1-17
2. The breast:
a. The man waves the breast for a Wave Offering toward the Tabernacle, towards 
hwhy
b. The Priests burns the kheylev-fat on the Altar
c. The man gives the breast for Aaron and his sons
3. The shoulder leg:
a. The man gives the shoulder leg for a heave offering to the Priest for his portion from the sacrifices of his Peace Offering, who also brings the blood of the Peace Offering and the kheylev-fat for the sons of Aaron


The two parts of the animal have symbolic meanings:

The Breast: The Heart of the Word
Shoulder Leg: Walking/Working in the Word







CHAPTER 8

Leviticus 8:1-36

Lev 8:1 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses to say, 2 Take ta-Aaron and ta-his sons with him, and ta the garments, and ta the Oil of the Anointing, and ta a bullock of the Sin Offering, and ta the two rams, and ta the basket of unleavened bread; 3 And assemble ta all the Congregation to the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment. 4 And Moses did as which hwhy commanded him; and the Assembly, she was gathered at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment. 5 And Moses said to the Congregation, This is the Word which hwhy commanded to do. 6 And Moses brought near ta-Aaron and ta-his sons and washed them in the water, 7 and put upon him ta-the Tunic, and girded him on the Belt, and clothed him ta-the Outer Robe, and was put upon him ta-the Ephod, and girded him on the Belt of the Ephod, and was girded on him for him. 8 And was put ta-the Breast Pocket upon him: and was put to the Breast Pocket ta-the Urim and ta-the Thummim. 9 And set ta-the Miter upon his head; and set upon the Miter ta the Plate of the Holy Golden Crown to the front of his face; as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

10 And Moses took ta-the Oil of the Anointing and anointed ta-the Tabernacle and ta-all that was in him, and sanctified them. 11 And sprinkled him upon the Altar seven times, and anointed ta-the Altar and ta-all his vessels, and ta-the Laver and ta-his Base to sanctify them. 12 And poured the Oil of the Anointing upon the head of Aaron, and anointed him to sanctify him. 13 And Moses brought ta-the sons of Aaron, and clothed them of Tunics, and girded them of Belts, and bound Bonnets for them; as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

14 And brought forth ta the Bullock of the Sin Offering: and Aaron and his sons laid ta-their hands upon the head of the bullock of the Sin Offering 15 and slaughtered him; and Moses took ta-the blood, and put upon the Horns of the Altar all around on his finger, and cleansed ta-the Altar, and poured ta-the blood to the Base of the Altar, and sanctified him to atone upon him. 16 And took ta-all the kheylev-fat which is upon the inwards, and ta the caul (fold) of the liver, and ta-the two kidneys, and ta-their kheylev-fat, and Moses burned as incense to the Altar. 17 And ta-the bullock, and ta-his skin, and ta-his flesh, and ta-his dung was burned up in the fire outside the camp; as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

18 And brought forth ta the Ram of the Elevation Offering: and Aaron and his sons, they laid ta-their hands upon the head of the ram 19 and was slaughtered; and Moses sprinkled ta-the blood upon the Altar all around. 20 And divided ta-the ram to his pieces; and Moses burned ta-the head, and ta-the pieces, and ta-the pader-fat as incense. 21 And washed ta-the inwards and ta-the legs in the water; and Moses burned ta-all the ram as incense to the Altar: he is an Elevation Offering for a pleasant scent: he is a Fire Offering to hwhy; as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

22 And brought forth
ta-the second ram, the Ram of Consecration: and Aaron and his sons, they laid ta-their hands upon the head of the ram 23 and was slaughtered; and Moses took from his blood, and put upon the tip of right ear of Aaron, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the thumb of his right foot. 24 And brought near ta-the sons of Aaron, and Moses put the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the thumb of their right foot: and Moses sprinkled ta-the blood upon the Altar all around. 25 And took ta-the kheylev-fat, and ta-the tail fat, and ta-all the kheylev-fat which is upon the inwards, and ta the caul (fold) upon the liver, and ta-the two kidneys, and ta-their kheylev-fat, and ta the right shoulder leg:

26 And from the basket of the unleavened bread which was to the Face of
hwhy took one unleavened cake, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and set them on the kheylev-fat and upon the right shoulder leg: 27 And put ta-the whole upon the palms of Aaron and upon the palms of his sons, and waved them of a Wave Offering to the Face of hwhy. 28 And Moses took them from upon their hands, and were burned as incense to the Altar upon the Elevation Offering: they are Consecrations for a pleasant scent: he is a Fire Offering to hwhy. 29 And Moses took ta-the breast and waved him of a Wave Offering to the Face of hwhy: the Ram of Consecration shall be for Moses for a portion; as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

30 And Moses took from the Oil of the Anointing and from the blood which was upon the Altar, and was sprinkled upon
Aaron, his garments, and upon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him; and sanctified ta-Aaron, and ta-his garments, and ta-his sons, and ta-the garments of his sons with him.

31 And Moses said to
Aaron and to his sons, Boil ta-the flesh at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment: and you shall eat him there, and ta-the bread which is in the Basket of the Consecrations, as which I commanded, to say, Aaron and his sons shall eat him. 32 And the remainder among the flesh and among the bread you shall burn up in the fire. 33 And you shall not go out of the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment seven days until the day of fulfilling the days of your consecrations: for seven days shall be filled ta-your hands. 34 As which was done in this day, hwhy has commanded to do to atone upon you. 35 And you shall dwell seven days at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment, daily and nightly, and you shall keep ta-the Charge of hwhy, and you will not die: for so I have commanded. 36 And Aaron and his sons did ta all the Words which hwhy commanded on the hand of Moses.


(NOTE: Not all verses will have comments)


To start, there are seventy six Aleph-Tavs in this chapter alone.


Verses one through nine

1 And hwhy spoke to Moses to say, 2 Take ta-Aaron and ta-his sons with him, and ta the garments, and ta the Oil of the Anointing, and ta a bullock of the Sin Offering, and ta the two rams, and ta the basket of unleavened bread; 3 And assemble ta all the Congregation to the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment. 4 And Moses did as which hwhy commanded him; and the Assembly, she was gathered at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment. 5 And Moses said to the Congregation, This is the Word which hwhy commanded to do. 6 And Moses brought near ta-Aaron and ta-his sons and washed them in the water, 7 and put upon him ta-the Tunic, and girded him on the Belt, and clothed him ta-the Outer Robe, and was put upon him ta-the Ephod, and girded him on the Belt of the Ephod, and was girded on him for him. 8 And was put ta-the Breast Pocket upon him: and was put to the Breast Pocket ta-the Urim and ta-the Thummim. 9 And set ta-the Miter upon his head; and set upon the Miter ta the Plate of the Holy Golden Crown to the front of his face; as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

Notice that Moses was the one washing Aaron and his sons and putting on their garments, like a parent to his child. Why didn't 
hwhy let Aaron and his sons do it themselves? I do not have the answer at this time.

Indirectly related, Yeshua washed the feet of His disciples for them to become part of Him, and it is noted in the Gospel of John

John 13:4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside His garments; and took a towel, and girded Himself. 5 After that He poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded. 6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost Thou wash my feet? 7 Yeshua answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. 8 Peter saith unto Him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Yeshua answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with Me. 9 Simon Peter saith unto Him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. 10 Yeshua saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. 11 For He knew who should betray Him; therefore said He, Ye are not all clean.

Like Moses washing the Priest to be part of the work for 
hwhy, so did Yeshua wash the disciples' feet to be part of the work for Yeshua.


Also, Moses' act of washing and clothing was like Yeshua washing and clothing us as believers, because all of us became Priests in the Kingdom as is noted in the epistle of the apostle Peter

1 Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to hwhy by Yeshua Messiah.

and in the book of Revelation

Revelation 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto hwhy and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.



These are some applications to clothing and washing:

WASHING

We in Yeshua are washed with the Word as noted in the apostle Paul's letter to the assembly in Ephesus

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Messiah also loved the assembly, and gave Himself for it; 26 That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, 27 That He might present it to Himself a glorious assembly, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord
the assembly:

The apostle Paul was washed from his sins, and it is noted in the book of the Acts

Acts 22:6 And it came to pass, that, as I made my journey, and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from the heavens a great light round about me. 7 And I fell unto the ground, and heard a Voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me? 8 And I answered, Who art Thou, Lord? And He said unto me, I am Yeshua of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest. 9 And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the Voice of Him that spake to me. 10 And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do. 11 And when I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of them that were with me, I came into Damascus. 12 And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt there, 13 Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him. 14 And he said, The Elohim of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know His Will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the Voice of His Mouth. 15 For thou shalt be His witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard. 16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the Name of hwhy.

We as believers in Yeshua have also been baptized, and our sins are washed away by Yeshua's blood.


CLOTHING

Job connected the garments to righteousness as he noted in his book

Job 29:14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.

The prophet Isaiah applied clothing to the garments of salvation as he noted in his book

Isaiah 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in hwhy, my soul shall be joyful in my Elohim; for He hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

The garments of salvation in Isaiah's passage is Salvation, in Hebrew, "yesha" (
esy). One can say that the Hebrew word Yesha is a shorter name for Yeshua without the Vav, and we in Yeshua are clothed with His garments via.

Yeshua clothed a man who was possed with the legion of demons, and it is noted in the Gospel of Mark

Mark 5:1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. 2 And when He was come out of the ship, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: 4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. 5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. 6 But when he saw Yeshua afar off, he ran and worshipped Him, 7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with Thee, Yeshua, Thou Son of the Most High El? I adjure Thee by hwhy, that Thou torment me not. 8 For He said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. 9 And He asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. 10 And he besought Him much that He would not send them away out of the country. 11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 12 And all the devils besought Him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13 And forthwith Yeshua gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea. 14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. 15 And they come to Yeshua, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. 16 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.

The man possessed with the demons called Legion was naked until Yeshua came and made the demons leave him, then that man was clothed and had a rightness of mind.

This account can be compared to when Adam and Khavah were given skins to cover their nakedness. It is noted t
he Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 3:7 And opened her the eyes of both of them, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed leaves of the fig tree, and they made for themselves aprons.... 21 And hwhy Elohim made coats of skins, for Adam and for his wife, and clothed them.



Verses ten through thirteen

10 And Moses took ta-the Oil of the Anointing and anointed ta-the Tabernacle and ta-all that was in him, and sanctified them. 11 And sprinkled him upon the Altar seven times, and anointed ta-the Altar and ta-all his vessels, and ta-the Laver and ta-his Base to sanctify them. 12 And poured the Oil of the Anointing upon the head of Aaron, and anointed him to sanctify him. 13 And Moses brought ta-the sons of Aaron, and clothed them of Tunics, and girded them of Belts, and bound Bonnets for them; as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

The Oil of the Anointing was a type and shadow of the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit). Its use to anoint the Tabernacle was a symbolic act for the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) to anoint Yeshua by coming down on Him as a dove, and it is noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 3:13 Then cometh Yeshua from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad Him, saying, I have need to be baptized of Thee, and comest Thou to me? 15 And Yeshua answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then He suffered him. 16 And Yeshua, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of Elohim descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him: 17 And lo a Voice from the heavens, saying, This is My Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

 Also, the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) was symbolic to anoint the Tabernacle of our bodies where He dwells, as the Apostle Paul noted in his letter to the assembly in Rome

Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Yeshua from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Messiah from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

and in his letter to the assembly in Corinth

1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the Temple of 
hwhy, and that the Spirit of Elohim dwelleth in you?

Though they don't say it, but we annointed with the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) to serve 
hwhy.

Looking at the word POURED

The Hebrew word for "poured" is "yah-tsahk"- Yod, Tsade, Kuph (
quy). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3332, and its definition

A primitive root; properly to pour out (transitively or intransitively); by implication to melt or cast as metal; by extension to place firmly, to stiffen or grow hard: - cast, cleave fast, be (as) firm, grow, be hard, lay out, molten, overflow, pour (out), run out, set down, stedfast.

This is where we get our modern English word "soak".



Verses fourteen through twenty nine

14 And brought forth ta the Bullock of the Sin Offering: and Aaron and his sons laid ta-their hands upon the head of the bullock of the Sin Offering 15 and slaughtered him; and Moses took ta-the blood, and put upon the Horns of the Altar all around on his finger, and cleansed ta-the Altar, and poured ta-the blood to the Base of the Altar, and sanctified him to atone upon him. 16 And took ta-all the kheylev-fat which is upon the inwards, and ta the caul (fold) of the liver, and ta-the two kidneys, and ta-their kheylev-fat, and Moses burned as incense to the Altar. 17 And ta-the bullock, and ta-his skin, and ta-his flesh, and ta-his dung was burned up in the fire outside the camp; as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

18 And brought forth ta the Ram of the Elevation Offering: and Aaron and his sons, they laid ta-their hands upon the head of the ram 19 and was slaughtered; and Moses sprinkled ta-the blood upon the Altar all around. 20 And divided ta-the ram to his pieces; and Moses burned ta-the head, and ta-the pieces, and ta-the pader-fat as incense. 21 And washed ta-the inwards and ta-the legs in the water; and Moses burned ta-all the ram as incense to the Altar: he is an Elevation Offering for a pleasant scent: he is a Fire Offering to hwhy; as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

22 And brought forth
ta-the second ram, the Ram of Consecration: and Aaron and his sons, they laid ta-their hands upon the head of the ram 23 and was slaughtered; and Moses took from his blood, and put upon the tip of right ear of Aaron, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the thumb of his right foot. 24 And brought near ta-the sons of Aaron, and Moses put the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the thumb of their right foot: and Moses sprinkled ta-the blood upon the Altar all around. 25 And took ta-the kheylev-fat, and ta-the tail fat, and ta-all the kheylev-fat which is upon the inwards, and ta the caul (fold) upon the liver, and ta-the two kidneys, and ta-their kheylev-fat, and ta the right shoulder leg:

26 And from the basket of the unleavened bread which was to the Face of
hwhy took one unleavened cake, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and set them on the kheylev-fat and upon the right shoulder leg: 27 And put ta-the whole upon the palms of Aaron and upon the palms of his sons, and waved them of a Wave Offering to the Face of hwhy. 28 And Moses took them from upon their hands, and were burned as incense to the Altar upon the Elevation Offering: they are Consecrations for a pleasant scent: he is a Fire Offering to hwhy. 29 And Moses took ta-the breast and waved him of a Wave Offering to the Face of hwhy: the Ram of Consecration shall be for Moses for a portion; as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

This is the only time that Moses made official sacrifices in the Tabernacle to hwhy for Aaron and his sons. This was probably two-fold: One- for the start of Aaron and his sons' priestly ministry, and Two- to show Aaron and his sons the procedures to sacrifice these various offerings, like a teacher showing the students what to do.

Moses placing the blood on the right ear tip, the right thumb, and the right big toe are representations:

The Right Ear: Hearing the Word of
hwhy
The Right Thumb: Doing and Working the Word of hwhy
The Right Big Toe: Walking in the Word of hwhy

Also the application to the right side indicates the symbol of the one who sits on the right side of the Father, and He is Yeshua, and it is noted in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke

Matthew 26:64 Yeshua saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of Man sitting on the Right Hand of power, and coming in the clouds of the heavens.

Luke 22:66 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,
Luk 22:67 Art Thou the Messiah? tell us. And He said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe: 68 And if I also ask you, ye will not answer Me, nor let Me go. 69 Hereafter shall the Son of Man sit on the Right Hand of the power of 
hwhy.

Matthew 22:44 hwhy said unto my Lord, Sit thou on My Right Hand, till I make Thine enemies Thy Footstool?

which is taken from King David written in the book of the Psalms

Psalms110:1 A Psalm of David. hwhy said unto My Lord, Sit Thou at My Right Hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy Footstool.



Verse thirty


30 And Moses took from the Oil of the Anointing and from the blood which was upon the Altar, and was sprinkled upon Aaron, his garments, and upon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him; and sanctified ta-Aaron, and ta-his garments, and ta-his sons, and ta-the garments of his sons with him.

As I mentioned, the Oil is a type and shadow of the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit). The apostle Peter noted the saints being sanctified with the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) in his epistle

1 Peter 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of hwhy the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Yeshua HaMashiakh: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

And we in Messiah are sealed with the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit), as the apostle Paul noted in his letter to the assembly in Ephesus

Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the Gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise, 14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His Glory.



Verses thirty-one through thirty five

31 And Moses said to Aaron and to his sons, Boil ta-the flesh at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment: and you shall eat him there, and ta-the bread which is in the Basket of the Consecrations, as which I commanded, to say, Aaron and his sons shall eat him. 32 And the remainder among the flesh and among the bread you shall burn up in the fire. 33 And you shall not go out of the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment seven days until the day of fulfilling the days of your consecrations: for seven days shall be filled ta-your hands. 34 As which was done in this day, hwhy has commanded to do to atone upon you. 35 And you shall dwell seven days at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment, daily and nightly, and you shall keep ta-the Charge of hwhy, and you will not die: for so I have commanded. 36 And Aaron and his sons did ta all the Words which hwhy commanded on the hand of Moses.

This refers to the Consecration in the Torah portion of T'tsavveh, in book of Exodus 29:1, 19-20, 26-28.

In verse thirty-one, Aaron and his sons ate the bread in the Tent. This was a type and shadow of eating Yeshua in the Tent of Appointment. One can say that Yeshua was present with them seven days.

In verse thirty five, Moses said that he commanded Aaron and his sons to stay in the Tent for seven days. This is equivalent to a father when he commanded his son, and the son asks "why", then the father replies "because I said so".

This almost sounds like the seven days of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread, because the Priests' consecration includes unleavened bread. In the time line, the Tent of Appointment was erected on the first day of the first month in the second year. Based on this time line, my question is "Was the time line of this account during the seven days of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread"? It is strongly probable.



Looking back at last week's Torah portion and this week's Torah portion, this is the list of the Hebrew words to the modern English words for five of the offerings:

Ending, Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries in this week's Torah portion, said that when the People brought their sacrifices and offerings, the Priests were not asked "How many bulls...?", But they were asked "Who were the People and what were their names?". In other words, Monte was saying that hwhy did not care about statistics like many Christian networks brag on how many souls were saved, but cared about a relationship with the individual.



That ends this week's Torah portion commentary.
