And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat
His right hand, as the Targum of Jonathan; (See Gill on Leviticus 1:4)
and kill it;
not the prince, but the priest after mentioned, or the butcher, as the same Targum:
it is a sin offering:
an offering for his sin of ignorance, or "sin"; so Christ our offering is said to be, ( 2 Corinthians 5:21 ) .
