Leviticus 4:28 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 4:28

Or if his sin which he hath sinned come to his knowledge,
&c.] So that he is convinced that he has sinned:

then he shall bring his offering;
to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, to the priest there:

a kid of the goats:
a young goat:

a female without blemish;
and so inferior to the offering of the ruler or prince; for the characters of men are aggravations of their sins, and sacrifices were to be in some measure answerable to them, and suitable to their circumstances:

for the sin which he hath sinned;
to atone for it in a typical way.
