4 He is to present the bull at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting before the LORD.1 He is to lay his hand on its head and slaughter it before the LORD. 5 Then the anointed priest shall take some of the bull's blood2 and carry it into the Tent of Meeting. 6 He is to dip his finger into the blood and sprinkle3 some of it seven times before the LORD,4 in front of the curtain of the sanctuary.5 7 The priest shall then put some of the blood on the horns6 of the altar of fragrant incense that is before the LORD in the Tent of Meeting. The rest of the bull's blood he shall pour out at the base of the altar7 of burnt offering8 at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. 8 He shall remove all the fat9 from the bull of the sin offering--the fat that covers the inner parts or is connected to them, 9 both kidneys with the fat on them near the loins, and the covering of the liver, which he will remove with the kidneys10-- 10 just as the fat is removed from the oxa11 sacrificed as a fellowship offering.b12 Then the priest shall burn them on the altar of burnt offering.13 11 But the hide of the bull and all its flesh, as well as the head and legs, the inner parts and offal14-- 12 that is, all the rest of the bull--he must take outside the camp15 to a place ceremonially clean,16 where the ashes17 are thrown, and burn it18 in a wood fire on the ash heap.19 13 " 'If the whole Israelite community sins unintentionally20 and does what is forbidden in any of the LORD's commands, even though the community is unaware of the matter, they are guilty. 14 When they become aware of the sin they committed, the assembly must bring a young bull21 as a sin offering22 and present it before the Tent of Meeting. 15 The elders23 of the community are to lay their hands24 on the bull's head25 before the LORD, and the bull shall be slaughtered before the LORD.26 16 Then the anointed priest is to take some of the bull's blood27 into the Tent of Meeting. 17 He shall dip his finger into the blood and sprinkle28 it before the LORD29 seven times in front of the curtain. 18 He is to put some of the blood30 on the horns of the altar that is before the LORD31 in the Tent of Meeting. The rest of the blood he shall pour out at the base of the altar32 of burnt offering at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. 19 He shall remove all the fat33 from it and burn it on the altar,34 20 and do with this bull just as he did with the bull for the sin offering. In this way the priest will make atonement35 for them, and they will be forgiven.36 21 Then he shall take the bull outside the camp37 and burn it as he burned the first bull. This is the sin offering for the community.38 22 " 'When a leader39 sins unintentionally40 and does what is forbidden in any of the commands of the LORD his God, he is guilty. 23 When he is made aware of the sin he committed, he must bring as his offering a male goat41 without defect. 24 He is to lay his hand on the goat's head and slaughter it at the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered before the LORD.42 It is a sin offering.43 25 Then the priest shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar44 of burnt offering and pour out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar.45 26 He shall burn all the fat on the altar as he burned the fat of the fellowship offering. In this way the priest will make atonement46 for the man's sin, and he will be forgiven.47 27 " 'If a member of the community sins unintentionally48 and does what is forbidden in any of the LORD's commands, he is guilty. 28 When he is made aware of the sin he committed, he must bring as his offering49 for the sin he committed a female goat50 without defect. 29 He is to lay his hand on the head51 of the sin offering52 and slaughter it at the place of the burnt offering.53 30 Then the priest is to take some of the blood with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering54 and pour out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar. 31 He shall remove all the fat, just as the fat is removed from the fellowship offering, and the priest shall burn it on the altar55 as an aroma pleasing to the LORD.56 In this way the priest will make atonement57 for him, and he will be forgiven.58 32 " 'If he brings a lamb59 as his sin offering, he is to bring a female without defect.60 33 He is to lay his hand on its head and slaughter it61 for a sin offering62 at the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered.63 34 Then the priest shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering and pour out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar.64 35 He shall remove all the fat, just as the fat is removed from the lamb of the fellowship offering, and the priest shall burn it on the altar65 on top of the offerings made to the LORD by fire. In this way the priest will make atonement for him for the sin he has committed, and he will be forgiven.
