Blood for Atonement

He has shed° blood° and that man° shall be cut° off° from among° his people°. 5 IThe reason° is so° that the sons° of Israel° may bring° their sacrifices° which° they were sacrificing° in the open° field°, that they may bring° them in to the LORD°, at the doorway° of the tent° of meeting° to the priest°, and sacrifice° them as sacrifices° of peace° offerings° to the LORD°. 6 The priest° shall sprinkle° the blood° on the altar° of the LORD° at the doorway° of the tent° of meeting°, and aoffer° up the fat° in smoke° as a soothing° aroma° to the LORD°. 7 aThey shall no° longer° sacrifice° their sacrifices° to the Igoat° demons° with which° they play° the harlot°. This° shall be a permanent° statute° to them throughout their generations°.”’
