GALATIANS 3:26-29

26. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. 28. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's descendants, heirs according to promise.

GALATIANS 1:6-12

6. I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; 7. which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! 9. As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed! 10. For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. 11. For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. 12. For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

EXODUS 33:12-23

12. Then Moses said to the LORD, ``See, You say to me, `Bring up this people!' But You Yourself have not let me know whom You will send with me. Moreover, You have said, `I have known you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.' 13. ``Now therefore, I pray You, if I have found favor in Your sight, let me know Your ways that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your sight. Consider too, that this nation is Your people." 14. And He said, ``My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest." 15. Then he said to Him, ``If Your presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here. 16. ``For how then can it be known that I have found favor in Your sight, I and Your people? Is it not by Your going with us, so that we, I and Your people, may be distinguished from all the other people who are upon the face of the earth?" 17. The LORD said to Moses, ``I will also do this thing of which you have spoken; for you have found favor in My sight and I have known you by name." 18. Then Moses said, ``I pray You, show me Your glory!" 19. And He said, ``I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion." 20. But He said, ``You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!" 21. Then the LORD said, ``Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock; 22. and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. 23. ``Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen."

EXODUS 32:1-46

1. Now when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people assembled about Aaron and said to him, ``Come, make us a god who will go before us; as for this Moses, the man who brought us up from the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him." 2. Aaron said to them, ``Tear off the gold rings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me." 3. Then all the people tore off the gold rings which were in their ears and brought them to Aaron. 4. He took this from their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool and made it into a molten calf; and they said, ``This is your god, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt." 5. Now when Aaron saw this, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made a proclamation and said, ``Tomorrow shall be a feast to the LORD." 6. So the next day they rose early and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play. 7. Then the LORD spoke to Moses, ``Go down at once, for your people, whom you brought up from the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves. 8. ``They have quickly turned aside from the way which I commanded them. They have made for themselves a molten calf, and have worshiped it and have sacrificed to it and said, `This is your god, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt!'" 9. The LORD said to Moses, ``I have seen this people, and behold, they are an obstinate people. 10. ``Now then let Me alone, that My anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them; and I will make of you a great nation." 11. Then Moses entreated the LORD his God, and said, ``O LORD, why does Your anger burn against Your people whom You have brought out from the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? 12. ``Why should the Egyptians speak, saying, `With evil intent He brought them out to kill them in the mountains and to destroy them from the face of the earth'? Turn from Your burning anger and change Your mind about doing harm to Your people. 13. ``Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants to whom You swore by Yourself, and said to them, `I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heavens, and all this land of which I have spoken I will give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.'" 14. So the LORD changed His mind about the harm which He said He would do to His people. 15. Then Moses turned and went down from the mountain with the two tablets of the testimony in his hand, tablets which were written on both sides; they were written on one side and the other. 16. The tablets were God's work, and the writing was God's writing engraved on the tablets. 17. Now when Joshua heard the sound of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, ``There is a sound of war in the camp." 18. But he said, ``It is not the sound of the cry of triumph, Nor is it the sound of the cry of defeat; But the sound of singing I hear." 19. It came about, as soon as Moses came near the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing; and Moses' anger burned, and he threw the tablets from his hands and shattered them at the foot of the mountain. 20. He took the calf which they had made and burned it with fire, and ground it to powder, and scattered it over the surface of the water and made the sons of Israel drink it. 21. Then Moses said to Aaron, ``What did this people do to you, that you have brought such great sin upon them?" 22. Aaron said, ``Do not let the anger of my lord burn; you know the people yourself, that they are prone to evil. 23. ``For they said to me, `Make a god for us who will go before us; for this Moses, the man who brought us up from the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.' 24. ``I said to them, `Whoever has any gold, let them tear it off.' So they gave it to me, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf." 25. Now when Moses saw that the people were out of control--for Aaron had let them get out of control to be a derision among their enemies-- 26. then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, ``Whoever is for the LORD, come to me!" And all the sons of Levi gathered together to him. 27. He said to them, ``Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, `Every man of you put his sword upon his thigh, and go back and forth from gate to gate in the camp, and kill every man his brother, and every man his friend, and every man his neighbor.'" 28. So the sons of Levi did as Moses instructed, and about three thousand men of the people fell that day. 29. Then Moses said, ``Dedicate yourselves today to the LORD--for every man has been against his son and against his brother--in order that He may bestow a blessing upon you today." 30. On the next day Moses said to the people, ``You yourselves have committed a great sin; and now I am going up to the LORD, perhaps I can make atonement for your sin." 31. Then Moses returned to the LORD, and said, ``Alas, this people has committed a great sin, and they have made a god of gold for themselves. 32. ``But now, if You will, forgive their sin--and if not, please blot me out from Your book which You have written!" 33. The LORD said to Moses, ``Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book. 34. ``But go now, lead the people where I told you. Behold, My angel shall go before you; nevertheless in the day when I punish, I will punish them for their sin." 35. Then the LORD smote the people, because of what they did with the calf which Aaron had made.

EXODUS 29:1-40

1. ``Now this is what you shall do to them to consecrate them to minister as priests to Me: take one young bull and two rams without blemish, 2. and unleavened bread and unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers spread with oil; you shall make them of fine wheat flour. 3. ``You shall put them in one basket, and present them in the basket along with the bull and the two rams. 4. ``Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the doorway of the tent of meeting and wash them with water. 5. ``You shall take the garments, and put on Aaron the tunic and the robe of the ephod and the ephod and the breastpiece, and gird him with the skillfully woven band of the ephod; 6. and you shall set the turban on his head and put the holy crown on the turban. 7. ``Then you shall take the anointing oil and pour it on his head and anoint him. 8. ``You shall bring his sons and put tunics on them. 9. ``You shall gird them with sashes, Aaron and his sons, and bind caps on them, and they shall have the priesthood by a perpetual statute. So you shall ordain Aaron and his sons. 10. ``Then you shall bring the bull before the tent of meeting, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the bull. 11. ``You shall slaughter the bull before the LORD at the doorway of the tent of meeting. 12. ``You shall take some of the blood of the bull and put it on the horns of the altar with your finger; and you shall pour out all the blood at the base of the altar. 13. ``You shall take all the fat that covers the entrails and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and the fat that is on them, and offer them up in smoke on the altar. 14. ``But the flesh of the bull and its hide and its refuse, you shall burn with fire outside the camp; it is a sin offering. 15. ``You shall also take the one ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram; 16. and you shall slaughter the ram and shall take its blood and sprinkle it around on the altar. 17. ``Then you shall cut the ram into its pieces, and wash its entrails and its legs, and put them with its pieces and its head. 18. ``You shall offer up in smoke the whole ram on the altar; it is a burnt offering to the LORD: it is a soothing aroma, an offering by fire to the LORD. 19. ``Then you shall take the other ram, and Aaron and his sons shall lay their hands on the head of the ram. 20. ``You shall slaughter the ram, and take some of its blood and put it on the lobe of Aaron's right ear and on the lobes of his sons' right ears and on the thumbs of their right hands and on the big toes of their right feet, and sprinkle the rest of the blood around on the altar. 21. ``Then you shall take some of the blood that is on the altar and some of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it on Aaron and on his garments and on his sons and on his sons' garments with him; so he and his garments shall be consecrated, as well as his sons and his sons' garments with him. 22. ``You shall also take the fat from the ram and the fat tail, and the fat that covers the entrails and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys and the fat that is on them and the right thigh (for it is a ram of ordination), 23. and one cake of bread and one cake of bread mixed with oil and one wafer from the basket of unleavened bread which is set before the LORD; 24. and you shall put all these in the hands of Aaron and in the hands of his sons, and shall wave them as a wave offering before the LORD. 25. ``You shall take them from their hands, and offer them up in smoke on the altar on the burnt offering for a soothing aroma before the LORD; it is an offering by fire to the LORD. 26. ``Then you shall take the breast of Aaron's ram of ordination, and wave it as a wave offering before the LORD; and it shall be your portion. 27. ``You shall consecrate the breast of the wave offering and the thigh of the heave offering which was waved and which was offered from the ram of ordination, from the one which was for Aaron and from the one which was for his sons. 28. ``It shall be for Aaron and his sons as their portion forever from the sons of Israel, for it is a heave offering; and it shall be a heave offering from the sons of Israel from the sacrifices of their peace offerings, even their heave offering to the LORD. 29. ``The holy garments of Aaron shall be for his sons after him, that in them they may be anointed and ordained. 30. ``For seven days the one of his sons who is priest in his stead shall put them on when he enters the tent of meeting to minister in the holy place. 31. ``You shall take the ram of ordination and boil its flesh in a holy place. 32. ``Aaron and his sons shall eat the flesh of the ram and the bread that is in the basket, at the doorway of the tent of meeting. 33. ``Thus they shall eat those things by which atonement was made at their ordination and consecration; but a layman shall not eat them, because they are holy. 34. ``If any of the flesh of ordination or any of the bread remains until morning, then you shall burn the remainder with fire; it shall not be eaten, because it is holy. 35. ``Thus you shall do to Aaron and to his sons, according to all that I have commanded you; you shall ordain them through seven days. 36. ``Each day you shall offer a bull as a sin offering for atonement, and you shall purify the altar when you make atonement for it, and you shall anoint it to consecrate it. 37. ``For seven days you shall make atonement for the altar and consecrate it; then the altar shall be most holy, and whatever touches the altar shall be holy. 38. ``Now this is what you shall offer on the altar: two one year old lambs each day, continuously. 39. ``The one lamb you shall offer in the morning and the other lamb you shall offer at twilight; 40. and there shall be one-tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one-fourth of a hin of beaten oil, and one-fourth of a hin of wine for a drink offering with one lamb. 41. ``The other lamb you shall offer at twilight, and shall offer with it the same grain offering and the same drink offering as in the morning, for a soothing aroma, an offering by fire to the LORD. 42. ``It shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the doorway of the tent of meeting before the LORD, where I will meet with you, to speak to you there. 43. ``I will meet there with the sons of Israel, and it shall be consecrated by My glory. 44. ``I will consecrate the tent of meeting and the altar; I will also consecrate Aaron and his sons to minister as priests to Me. 45. ``I will dwell among the sons of Israel and will be their God. 46. ``They shall know that I am the LORD their God who brought them out of the land of Egypt, that I might dwell among them; I am the LORD their God.
