Procedures for the Sin Offering

4Then the LORD said to Moses,H3068H1696H4872H559 2"Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. This is how you are to deal with those who sin unintentionally by doing anything that violates one of the LORD's commands.H1696H1121H3478H559H5315H2398H7684H4687H3068H6213H6213H259H2007 3"If the high priest sins, bringing guilt upon the entire community, he must give a sin offering for the sin he has committed. He must present to the LORD a young bull with no defects.H3548H4899H2398H819H5971H7126H2403H2398H1241H1121H6499H8549H3068H2403 4He must bring the bull to the LORD at the entrance of the Tabernacle, lay his hand on the bull's head, and slaughter it before the LORD.H935H6499H6607H168H4150H6440H3068H5564H3027H6499H7218H7819H6499H6440H3068 5The high priest will then take some of the bull's blood into the Tabernacle,H3548H4899H3947H6499H1818H935H168H4150 6dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the LORD in front of the inner curtain of the sanctuary.H3548H2881H676H1818H5137H1818H7651H6471H6440H3068H6440H6532H6944 7The priest will then put some of the blood on the horns of the altar for fragrant incense that stands in the LORD's presence inside the Tabernacle. He will pour out the rest of the bull's blood at the base of the altar for burnt offerings at the entrance of the Tabernacle.H3548H5414H1818H7161H4196H5561H7004H6440H3068H168H4150H8210H1818H6499H3247H4196H5930H6607H168H4150 8Then the priest must remove all the fat of the bull to be offered as a sin offering. This includes all the fat around the internal organs,H7311H2459H6499H2403H2459H3680H7130H2459H7130 9the two kidneys and the fat around them near the loins, and the long lobe of the liver. He must remove these along with the kidneys,H8147H3629H2459H3689H3508H3516H3629H5493 10just as he does with cattle offered as a peace offering, and burn them on the altar of burnt offerings.H7311H7794H2077H8002H3548H6999H4196H5930 11But he must take whatever is left of the bull—its hide, meat, head, legs, internal organs, and dung -H5785H6499H1320H7218H3767H7130H6569 12and carry it away to a place outside the camp that is ceremonially clean, the place where the ashes are dumped. There, on the ash heap, he will burn it on a wood fire.H6499H3318H2351H4264H2889H4725H1880H8211H8313H6086H784H413H1880H8211H8313 13"If the entire Israelite community sins by violating one of the LORD's commands, but the people don't realize it, they are still guilty.H5712H3478H7686H1697H5956H5869H6951H6213H259H4687H3068H6213H816 14When they become aware of their sin, the people must bring a young bull as an offering for their sin and present it before the Tabernacle.H2403H2398H3045H6951H7126H1241H1121H6499H2403H935H6440H168H4150 15The elders of the community must then lay their hands on the bull's head and slaughter it before the LORD.H2205H5712H5564H3027H7218H6499H6440H3068H6499H7819H6440H3068 16The high priest will then take some of the bull's blood into the Tabernacle,H3548H4899H935H6499H1818H168H4150 17dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the LORD in front of the inner curtain.H3548H2881H676H1818H5137H7651H6471H6440H3068H6440H6532 18He will then put some of the blood on the horns of the altar for fragrant incense that stands in the LORD's presence inside the Tabernacle. He will pour out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar for burnt offerings at the entrance of the Tabernacle.H5414H1818H7161H4196H6440H3068H168H4150H8210H1818H3247H4196H5930H6607H168H4150 19Then the priest must remove all the animal's fat and burn it on the altar,H7311H2459H6999H4196 20just as he does with the bull offered as a sin offering for the high priest. Through this process, the priest will purify the people, making them right with the LORD, and they will be forgiven.H6213H6499H6213H6499H2403H6213H3548H3722H5545 21Then the priest must take what is left of the bull and carry it outside the camp and burn it there, just as is done with the sin offering for the high priest. This offering is for the sin of the entire congregation of Israel.H3318H6499H2351H4264H8313H8313H7223H6499H2403H6951 22"If one of Israel's leaders sins by violating one of the commands of the LORD his God but doesn't realize it, he is still guilty.H5387H2398H6213H7684H259H4687H3068H430H6213H816 23When he becomes aware of his sin, he must bring as his offering a male goat with no defects.H2403H2398H3045H935H7133H8163H5795H2145H8549 24He must lay his hand on the goat's head and slaughter it at the place where burnt offerings are slaughtered before the LORD. This is an offering for his sin.H5564H3027H7218H8163H7819H4725H7819H5930H6440H3068H2403 25Then the priest will dip his finger in the blood of the sin offering and put it on the horns of the altar for burnt offerings. He will pour out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar.H3548H3947H1818H2403H676H5414H7161H4196H5930H8210H1818H3247H4196H5930 26Then he must burn all the goat's fat on the altar, just as he does with the peace offering. Through this process, the priest will purify the leader from his sin, making him right with the LORD, and he will be forgiven.H6999H2459H4196H2459H2077H8002H3548H3722H2403H5545 27"If any of the common people sin by violating one of the LORD's commands, but they don't realize it, they are still guilty.H259H5315H776H5971H2398H7684H6213H259H4687H3068H6213H816 28When they become aware of their sin, they must bring as an offering for their sin a female goat with no defects.H2403H2398H3045H935H7133H8166H5795H5347H8549H2403H2398 29They must lay a hand on the head of the sin offering and slaughter it at the place where burnt offerings are slaughtered.H5564H3027H7218H2403H7819H2403H4725H5930 30Then the priest will dip his finger in the blood and put it on the horns of the altar for burnt offerings. He will pour out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar.H3548H3947H1818H676H5414H7161H4196H5930H8210H1818H3247H4196 31Then he must remove all the goat's fat, just as he does with the fat of the peace offering. He will burn the fat on the altar, and it will be a pleasing aroma to the LORD. Through this process, the priest will purify the people, making them right with the LORD, and they will be forgiven.H5493H2459H2459H5493H2077H8002H3548H6999H4196H5207H7381H3068H3548H3722H5545 32"If the people bring a sheep as their sin offering, it must be a female with no defects.H935H3532H2403H7133H935H5347H8549 33They must lay a hand on the head of the sin offering and slaughter it at the place where burnt offerings are slaughtered.H5564H3027H7218H2403H7819H2403H4725H7819H5930 34Then the priest will dip his finger in the blood of the sin offering and put it on the horns of the altar for burnt offerings. He will pour out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar.H3548H3947H1818H2403H676H5414H7161H4196H5930H8210H1818H3247H4196 35Then he must remove all the sheep's fat, just as he does with the fat of a sheep presented as a peace offering. He will burn the fat on the altar on top of the special gifts presented to the LORD. Through this process, the priest will purify the people from their sin, making them right with the LORD, and they will be forgiven.H5493H2459H2459H3775H5493H2077H8002H3548H6999H4196H801H3068H3548H3722H2403H2398H5545
