Leviticus 16:10; Leviticus 16:22; Leviticus 16:26 (New International Version)
But the goat chosen by lot as the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the LORD to be used for making atonement by sending it into the desert as a scapegoat.
The goat will carry on itself all their sins to a solitary place; and the man shall release it in the desert.
"The man who releases the goat as a scapegoat must wash his clothes and bathe himself with water; afterward he may come into the camp.
