Numbers 28:22 Meaning and Commentary

Numbers 28:22

And one goat [for] a sin offering, to make atonement for you.
] For notwithstanding all their services and sacrifices, and though this day was an holy convocation, yet there was need of a sin offering to expiate their guilt, typical of Christ, who takes away the sins of our holy things as well as all other sins: this sin offering also was of that sort which were eaten; for Maimonides says F11, the goat of the sin offering was eaten on the second day of the passover, which was the sixteenth of Nisan.


F11 Maimon. Hilchot Tamidin, c. 7. sect. 3.

Numbers 28:22 In-Context

20 also their grain offering of fine flour mixed with oil; three tenths of an ephah shall you offer for a bull, and two tenths for a ram;
21 a tenth shall you offer for each of the seven lambs;
22 also one male goat for a sin offering, to make atonement for you.
23 You shall offer these besides the burnt offering of the morning, which is for a regular burnt offering.
24 In the same way you shall offer daily, for seven days, the food of a food offering, with a pleasing aroma to the LORD. It shall be offered besides the regular burnt offering and its drink offering.
