Leviticus 4:15

These must be two at least, some say three, and some say five F8; the more generally received notion is, that they were three of the sanhedrim F9; though the Targum of Jonathan makes them to be the twelve rulers of the twelve tribes:

in the court near the altar of burnt offering, either by a priest, or Levite, or by a butcher, as the above Targum expresses it.
