1The sin offering of ignorance for the priest, 13for the congregation, 22for a ruler, 27for any of the people.

1

AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

2

Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a soul shall sin athrough ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which ought not to be done, and shall do against any of them:

3

If the bpriest that is anointed do sin according to the sin of the people; then let him bring for his sin, which he hath sinned, a cyoung bullock without blemish unto the LORD for a sin offering.

4

And he shall dbring the bullock unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD; and shall lay his hand upon the bullock's head, and kill the bullock before the LORD.

5

And the priest that is anointed shall etake of the bullock's blood, and bring it to the tabernacle of the congregation:

6

And the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle of the blood seven times fbefore the LORD, before the *vail of the sanctuary.

7

And the priest shall put some of the blood gupon the horns hof the altar of sweet incense before the LORD, which is in the tabernacle of the congregation; and shall ipour all the blood of the bullock at the bottom of the altar of the burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

8

And he shall take off from it all the jfat of the bullock for the sin offering; the fat that covereth the inwards, and all the fat that is upon the inwards,

9

And the two kidneys, and the fat that is upon them, which is by the flanks, and the *caul above the liver, with the kidneys, it shall he take away,

10

kAs it was taken off from the bullock of the sacrifice of peace offerings: and the priest shall burn them upon the altar of the burnt offering.

k ch. 3.3-5.
11

lAnd the skin of the bullock, and all his flesh, with his head, and with his legs, and his inwards, and his dung,

12

Even the whole bullock shall he carry forth 1*without the camp unto a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and mburn him on the wood with fire: 2where the ashes are poured out shall he be burnt.

13

¶And if the whole congregation of Israel sin nthrough ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty;
