Leviticus 16 ©
How the high priest must enter into the holy place. The sin offering for himself. The sin offering for the people. The scapegoat. The yearly feast of the expiations.
And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he ccome not at all times into the holy place within the *vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will dappear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.
He shall fput on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen *mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he gwash his flesh in water, and so put them on.
And Aaron shall bring othe bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself:
¶Then shall he ukill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the *vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:
And he shall vmake an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that 3remaineth among them win the midst of their uncleanness.
And there shall be xno man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel.
And Aaron shall clay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of 4a fit man into the wilderness:
jAnd the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry forth *without the camp; and they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.
And he that burneth them kshall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp.
¶And this shall be a statute lfor ever unto you: that in mthe seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall nafflict your souls, and do ono work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that *sojourneth among you:
It rshall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever.
And he shall make an atonement for the vholy sanctuary, and he shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the congregation, and for wthe altar, and he shall make an atonement for xthe priests, and for yall the people of the congregation.
