Smith's Bible Dictionary
Consecration

[PRIEST]

Easton's Bible Dictionary
The devoting or setting apart of anything to the worship or service of God. The race of Abraham and the tribe of Levi were thus consecrated (Exodus 13:2, 12, 15; Numbers 3:12). The Hebrews devoted their fields and cattle, and sometimes the spoils of war, to the Lord (Leviticus 27:28, 29). According to the Mosaic law the first-born both of man and beast were consecrated to God.

In the New Testament, Christians are regarded as consecrated to the Lord (1 Peter 2:9).

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
(n.) The act or ceremony of consecrating; the state of being consecrated; dedication.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
CONSECRATE; CONSECRATION

kon'-se-krat, kon-se-kra'-shun.

1. In the Old Testament:

In the Old Testament for several Hebrew words of different meanings:

(1) charam: "I will consecrate (the Revised Version (British and American) "devote") their gain unto the Lord," i.e. the spoil of the nations shall be dedicated to the service of Yahweh (Micah 4:13).

See BAN; CURSE.

(2) nazar, nezer (Numbers 6:7, 9, 12; the Revised Version (British and American) "separate").

See NAZIRITE.

(3) qadhesh: "to be set apart," or "to be holy": of Aaron and his sons (Exodus 28:3; Exodus 30:30; the Revised Version (British and American) "sanctify"). The silver and gold and brass and iron of the banned city of Jericho are "consecrated" things (the Revised Version (British and American) "holy") unto the Lord (Joshua 6:19); of the priests (2 Chronicles 26:18); of sacrifices (2 Chronicles 29:33; 2 Chronicles 31:6 Ezra 3:5).

See HOLINESS.

(4) mille' yadh, literally, "to fill the hand"; and substantive plural millu'im, a peculiar idiom used frequently and generally for the installation of a priest into his office; and substantive for the installation offerings which were probably put into the priest's hands to symbolize his admission into office; hence, the phrase, "and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons" (Exodus 29:9; Exodus 28:41; Exodus 29:29:33, 15; 32:29:00; Leviticus 8:33; Leviticus 16:32; Leviticus 21:10 Numbers 3:3 Judges 17:5, 12 2 Chronicles 29:31); of Jeroboam's non-Levitical priesthood (1 Kings 13:33 2 Chronicles 13:9); of the altar (Ezekiel 43:26) and of those who contributed to build the temple (1 Chronicles 29:5). Subst. of an act of installation (Leviticus 7:37; Leviticus 8:33), and of installation offerings (Exodus 29:22, 26, 27, 31 Leviticus 8:22, 28, 29, 31).

2. In the New Testament:

In the New Testament teleioo, "to make perfect" (Hebrews 7:28; the Revised Version (British and American) "perfected"); egkainizo, "to make new" (Hebrews 10:20; the Revised Version (British and American) "dedicated").
