References for Leviticus 4:15

    • g 4:15 - The expression 'one shall slaughter' has interest in respect of the point where self-offering and mediatorial work begins. It was not the priest who slaughtered, unless he were the guilty one (ver. 4), and then it is not as priest. I do not know that it is more precise in vers. 4 and 24.
