The Bible in Its Traditions

Leviticus 4:22–26

M S Sam

22  When a ruler sinneth, and doeth through error any one of all the things which YHWH his God hath commanded not to be done, and is guilty

22  And if a ruler sin, and break one of all the commands of the Lord his God, doing the thing which ought not to be done, unwillingly, and shall sin and trespass,

22  If a leader will have sinned, and through ignorance will have done one of the many things which the law of the Lord prohibits,

M Sam
G S Sam

23  if his sin, wherein he hath sinned, be known to him, he shall bring for his offering a goat, a male without blemish.

23  and his trespass wherein he has sinned, be known to him, —then shall he offer for his gift a kid of the goats, a male without blemish.

23  and afterwards he shall understand his sin: he shall offer an immaculate he-goat from among the goats, as a sacrifice to the Lord.

M G S Sam

24  And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and kill it in the place where they kill the burnt-offering before YHWH; it is a sin-offering.

24  And he shall place his hand upon its head. And when he will have immolated it, in the place where the holocaust is usually slain, in the sight of the Lord, because it is for sin,

25  And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin-offering with his finger, and put it upon the horns of the altar of burnt-offering, and the remaining blood thereof shall he pour out at the base of the altar of burnt-offering.

25  the priest shall dip his finger in the blood of the victim for sin, touching the horns of the altar of holocaust, and pouring out the remainder at its base.

S Sam

26  And all the fat thereof shall he make smoke upon the altar, as the fat of the sacrifice of peace-offerings; and the priest shall make atonement for him as concerning his sin, and he shall be forgiven.

26  Yet truly, the fat he shall burn upon it, just as is usually done with the victims of peace offerings. And the priest shall pray for him and for his sin, and he shall be released from it.

26  And he shall burn all its fat upon the altar as the fat of the sacrifice of peace offerings; and the priest shall make an atonement for him for his sin and it shall be forgiven him.
