How the high priest must enter into the holy place.
1 ¶ And the LORDº spakeºª unto² Mosesº afterº the deathº of the twoº sonsº of Aaron,º when they offeredºª beforeº the LORD,º and died;ºª 2 And the LORDº saidºª unto² Moses,º Speakºª unto² Aaronº thy brother,º that he comeºª not² at all² timesº into² the holyº [place] withinº² the vailº beforeº² the mercy seat,º which² [is] upon² the ark;º that he dieºª not:² for² I will appearºª in the cloudº upon² the mercy¹ seat.² 3 Thusº shall Aaronº comeºª into² the holyº [place]: with a youngºº bullockº for a sin offering,º and a ramº for a burnt offering.º 4 He shall put onºª the holyº linenº coat,º and he shall have² the linenº breechesº upon² his flesh,º and shall be girdedºª with a linenº girdle,º and with the linenº mitreº shall he be attired:ºª theseº [are] holyº garments;º therefore shall he washºª² his fleshº in water,º and [so] put them on.ºª 5 And he shall takeºª of²² the congregationº of the childrenº of Israelº twoº kidsº of the goatsº for a sin offering,º and oneº ramº for a burnt offering.º 6 And Aaronº shall offerºª² his bullockº of the sin offering,º which² [is] for himself,¹ and make an atonementºª for² himself, and for² his house.º 7 And he shall takeºª² the twoº goats,º and presentºª them beforeº the LORDº [at] the doorº of the tabernacleº of the congregation.º 8 And Aaronº shall castºª lotsº upon² the twoº goats;º oneº lotº for the LORD,º and the otherº lotº for the scapegoat.º 9 And Aaronº shall bringºª² the goatº upon² which² the LORD'Sº lotº fell,ºª and offerºª him [for] a sin offering.º 10 But the goat,º on² which² the lotº fellºª to be the scapegoat,º shall be presentedºª aliveº beforeº the LORD,º to make an atonementºª with² him, [and] to let him goºª² for a scapegoatº into the wilderness.º
