 8:15
 8:16
8:15 Moses slaughtered it and collected the blood. With his finger, he placed [the blood] all around the altar's protrusions, thus purifying the altar. He poured the [rest of] the blood at the altar's base, thus sanctifying it so that atonement could be offered on it.
Vayishchat vayikach Moshe et-hadam vayiten al-karnot hamizbe'ach saviv be'etsba'o vayechate et-hamizbe'ach ve'et-hadam yatsak el-yesod hamizbe'ach vayekadeshehu lechaper alav.
8:16 He took the fat on the stomachs, the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys along with their fat, and Moses burned them on the altar.
Vayikach et-kol-hachelev asher al-hakerev ve'et yoteret hakaved ve'et-shtey haklayot ve'et-chelbehen vayakter Moshe hamizbechah.
