Leviticus 16


16:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons
 of Aaron, when they offered before the LORD, and died:
16:2 And the LORD said to Moses, Speak to Aaron thy brother,
 that he come not at all times into the holy [place] within the
 vail, before the mercy-seat, which [is] upon the ark; that he
 may not die: for I will appear in the cloud upon the
 mercy-seat.
16:3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy [place]: with a young
 bullock for a sin-offering, and a ram for a burnt-offering.
16:4 He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the
 linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with the
 linen girdle, and with the linen miter shall he be attired:
 these [are] holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in
 water, and [so] put them on.
16:5 And he shall take of the congregation of the children of
 Israel two kids of the goats for a sin-offering, and one ram
 for a burnt-offering.
16:6 And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin-offering,
 which [is] for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and
 for his house.
16:7 And he shall take the two goats, and present them before
 the LORD [at] the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
16:8 And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for
 the LORD, and the other lot for the scape-goat.
16:9 And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD'S lot
 fell, and offer him [for] a sin-offering.
16:10 But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scape-goat,
 shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement
 with him, [and] to let him go for a scape-goat into the
 wilderness.
16:11 And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin-offering,
 which [is] for himself, and shall make an atonement for
 himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the
 sin-offering which [is] for himself:
16:12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire
 from off the altar before the LORD, and his hands full of sweet
 incense beaten small, and bring [it] within the vail:
16:13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the
 LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy-seat
 that [is] upon the testimony, that he may not die.
16:14 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and
 sprinkle [it] with his finger upon the mercy-seat eastward: and
 before the mercy-seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his
 finger seven times.
16:15 Then shall he kill the goat of the sin-offering that [is]
 for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do
 with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and
 sprinkle it upon the mercy-seat, and before the mercy-seat:
16:16 And he shall make an atonement for the holy [place],
 because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and
 because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall
 he do for the tabernacle of the congregation that remaineth
 among them in the midst of their uncleanness.
16:17 And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the
 congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy
 [place], until he shall come out, and shall have made an
 atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the
 congregation of Israel.
16:18 And he shall go out to the altar that [is] before the
 LORD, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood
 of the bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put [it] upon
 the horns of the altar round about.
16:19 And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger
 seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness
 of the children of Israel.
16:20 And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy
 [place], and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar,
 he shall bring the live goat:
16:21 And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the
 live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the
 children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their
 sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send
 [him] away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:
16:22 And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities to a
 land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the
 wilderness.
16:23 And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the
 congregation, and shall put off the linen garments which he put
 on when he went into the holy [place], and shall leave them
 there:
16:24 And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy
 [place], and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his
 burnt-offering, and the burnt-offering of the people, and make
 an atonement for himself, and for the people.
16:25 And the fat of the sin-offering shall he burn upon the
 altar.
16:26 And he that let go the goat for the scape-goat shall wash
 his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come
 into the camp.
16:27 And the bullock [for] the sin-offering, and the goat [for]
 the sin-offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement
 in the holy [place], shall [one] carry forth without the camp;
 and they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh,
 and their dung.
16:28 And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe
 his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp.
16:29 And [this] shall be a statute for ever to you: [that] in
 the seventh month, on the tenth [day] of the month, ye shall
 afflict your souls, and do no work at all, [whether it be] one
 of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you:
16:30 For on that day shall [the priest] make an atonement for
 you, to cleanse you, [that] ye may be clean from all your sins
 before the LORD.
16:31 It [shall be] a sabbath of rest to you, and ye shall
 afflict your souls by a statute for ever.
16:32 And the priest whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall
 consecrate to minister in the priest's office in his father's
 stead, shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen
 clothes, [even] the holy garments:
16:33 And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and
 he shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the
 congregation, and for the altar: and he shall make an atonement
 for the priests, and for all the people of the congregation.
16:34 And this shall be an everlasting statute to you, to make
 an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once
 a year. And he did as the LORD commanded Moses.
