Leviticus 16:21  (King James Version)
And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:

1:4 Exodus 29:10

confess over
26:40 Ezra 10:1 ; Nehemiah 1:6 Nehemiah 1:7 ; 9:3-5 Psalms 32:5 ; 51:3 Proverbs 28:13 ; Daniel 9:3-20
Romans 10:10

Isaiah 53:6 ; 2 Corinthians 5:21

a fit man
Hebrew a man of opportunity.
The man that took the scape-goat into the wilderness, and they that burned the sin offering, were to be looked upon as ceremonially unclean, and must not come into the camp till they had washed their clothes and bathed their flesh in water, which signified the defiling nature of sin; even the sacrifice which was made sin, was defiling: also the imperfection of the legal sacrifices, they were so far from taking away sin, that they left some stain even upon those that touched them.
