1 Then Yahweh spoke to Moses after the death of Aaron's two sons, when they had come near {before} Yahweh and they died. 1 The LORD spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron who died when they approached the LORD.
2 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Tell your brother Aaron [that] he should not enter at any time into the sanctuary {behind} the curtain {in front of} the atonement cover that [is] on the ark, so that he might not die, because I appear in the cloud over the atonement cover. 2 The LORD said to Moses: "Tell your brother Aaron not to come whenever he chooses into the Most Holy Place behind the curtain in front of the atonement cover on the ark, or else he will die, because I appear in the cloud over the atonement cover.
3 "Aaron must enter the sanctuary with this: {a young bull} as a sin offering and a ram as a burnt offering. 3 "This is how Aaron is to enter the sanctuary area: with a young bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering.
4 He must put on {a holy linen tunic}, and linen undergarments must be on his body, and he must fasten [himself] with a linen sash, and he must wrap a linen turban around [his head]--they [are] holy garments, and he shall wash his body with water, then he shall put them on. 4 He is to put on the sacred linen tunic, with linen undergarments next to his body; he is to tie the linen sash around him and put on the linen turban. These are sacred garments; so he must bathe himself with water before he puts them on.
5 And he must take from the {Israelites}' community two he-goats as a sin offering and one ram as a burnt offering. 5 From the Israelite community he is to take two male goats for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering.
6 "And Aaron shall present the sin offering's bull, which [is] for himself, and so he shall make atonement for himself and for his family. 6 "Aaron is to offer the bull for his own sin offering to make atonement for himself and his household.

8 Then Aaron shall cast lots for the two goats: one lot for Yahweh and one for Azazel. 8 He is to cast lots for the two goats--one lot for the LORD and the other for the scapegoat.
9 And Aaron shall present the goat on which the lot for Yahweh fell, and he shall {sacrifice} it [as] a sin offering. 9 Aaron shall bring the goat whose lot falls to the LORD and sacrifice it for a sin offering.
10 But he must present alive {before} Yahweh the goat on which the lot for Azazel fell to make atonement for himself, to send it away into the desert to Azazel. 10 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.
11 "And Aaron shall present the sin offering's bull, which [is] for himself, and so he shall make atonement for himself and for his family; then he shall slaughter the sin offering's bull, which [is] for himself. 11 "Aaron shall bring the bull for his own sin offering to make atonement for himself and his household, and he is to slaughter the bull for his own sin offering.
12 And he shall take a censer full of {burning charcoal} from upon the altar from {before} Yahweh and {two handfuls} of incense of powdered fragrant perfumes, and he shall bring [it] {from behind} the curtain, 12 He is to take a censer full of burning coals from the altar before the LORD and two handfuls of finely ground fragrant incense and take them behind the curtain.
13 and he shall put the incense on the fire {before} Yahweh so that the cloud of incense might cover the atonement cover, which [is] on the {covenant text}, so that he might not die. 13 He is to put the incense on the fire before the LORD, and the smoke of the incense will conceal the atonement cover above the Testimony, so that he will not die.
14 And he shall take {some of} the bull's blood, and he shall spatter [it] with his finger on the atonement cover's surface on the eastern [side], and {before} the atonement cover he shall spatter {some of} the blood with his finger seven times. 14 He is to take some of the bull's blood and with his finger sprinkle it on the front of the atonement cover; then he shall sprinkle some of it with his finger seven times before the atonement cover.
15 "And he shall slaughter the sin offering's goat, which [is] for the people, and he shall bring its blood {from behind} the curtain, and he shall do with its blood as that which he did with the bull's blood, and he shall spatter it on the atonement cover and {before} the atonement cover. 15 "He shall then slaughter the goat for the sin offering for the people and take its blood behind the curtain and do with it as he did with the bull's blood: He shall sprinkle it on the atonement cover and in front of it.
16 Thus he shall make atonement for the sanctuary from the {Israelites}' impurities and from their transgressions for all their sins; and so he must do for [the] tent of assembly, which dwells with them in the midst of their impurities. 16 In this way he will make atonement for the Most Holy Place because of the uncleanness and rebellion of the Israelites, whatever their sins have been. He is to do the same for the Tent of Meeting, which is among them in the midst of their uncleanness.
17 And {no person} shall be in [the] tent of assembly when he enters to make atonement in the sanctuary until he comes out, and so he shall make atonement for himself and for his family and for all of Israel's assembly. 17 No one is to be in the Tent of Meeting from the time Aaron goes in to make atonement in the Most Holy Place until he comes out, having made atonement for himself, his household and the whole community of Israel.
18 "Then he shall go out to the altar that [is] {before} Yahweh, and he shall make atonement for it; and he shall take {some of} the bull's blood and {some of} the goat's blood, and he shall put [it] all around on the altar's horns. 18 "Then he shall come out to the altar that is before the LORD and make atonement for it. He shall take some of the bull's blood and some of the goat's blood and put it on all the horns of the altar.
19 And he shall spatter {some of} the blood on it seven times with his finger, and he shall cleanse it and consecrate it from the {Israelites}' impurities. 19 He shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger seven times to cleanse it and to consecrate it from the uncleanness of the Israelites.
20 "And he shall finish making atonement [for] the sanctuary and [the] tent of assembly and the altar; then he shall present the living goat. 20 "When Aaron has finished making atonement for the Most Holy Place, the Tent of Meeting and the altar, he shall bring forward the live goat.
21 And Aaron shall place his two hands on the living goat's head, and he shall confess over it all the {Israelites}' iniquities and all their transgressions for all their sins, and he shall put them on the goat's head, and he shall send [it] away into the desert {with} a man [standing] ready. 21 He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites--all their sins--and put them on the goat's head. He shall send the goat away into the desert in the care of a man appointed for the task.
22 Thus the goat shall bear on it to {a barren region} all their guilt, and he shall send the goat away into the desert. 22 The goat will carry on itself all their sins to a solitary place; and the man shall release it in the desert.
23 "And Aaron shall enter [the] tent of assembly, and he shall take off the linen garments that he put on at his coming to the sanctuary, and he shall leave them there. 23 "Then Aaron is to go into the Tent of Meeting and take off the linen garments he put on before he entered the Most Holy Place, and he is to leave them there.
24 And he shall wash his body with water in a holy place, and he shall put on his garments and go out and {sacrifice} his burnt offering and the people's burnt offering, and so he shall make atonement for himself and for people. 24 He shall bathe himself with water in a holy place and put on his regular garments. Then he shall come out and sacrifice the burnt offering for himself and the burnt offering for the people, to make atonement for himself and for the people.

26 "And the person who sends out the goat for Azazel shall wash his garments, and he shall wash his body with water, and {afterward} he shall come to the camp. 26 "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.
27 And the sin offering's bull and the sin offering's goat, whose blood was brought to make atonement in the sanctuary, shall be brought {outside the camp}, and they shall burn their hide and their flesh and their offal in the fire. 27 The bull and the goat for the sin offerings, whose blood was brought into the Most Holy Place to make atonement, must be taken outside the camp; their hides, flesh and offal are to be burned up.
28 And the person who burns them shall wash his garments, and he shall wash his body with water, and {afterward} he must come to the camp. 28 The man who burns them must wash his clothes and bathe himself with water; afterward he may come into the camp.
29 "And this shall be {a lasting statute} for you: in the seventh month, on the tenth of the month, you must deny yourselves and you must not do any work, [whether] the native or the alien who is dwelling in your midst, 29 "This is to be a lasting ordinance for you: On the tenth day of the seventh month you must deny yourselves and not do any work--whether native-born or an alien living among you--
