Chapter 4
001
Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
002
"Speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'If anyone sins unintentionally, in any of the things which Yahweh has commanded not to be done, and does any one of them:
003
if the anointed priestess sins so as to bring guilt on the people, then let her offer for her sin, which she has sinned, a young bull without blemish to Yahweh for a sin offering.
004
She shall bring the bull to the door of the Tent of Meeting before Yahweh; and she shall lay her hand on the head of the bull, and kill the bull before Yahweh.
005
The anointed priestess shall take some of the blood of the bull, and bring it to the Tent of Meeting.
006
The priestess shall dip her finger in the blood, and sprinkle some of the blood seven times before Yahweh, before the veil of the sanctuary.
007
The priestess shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar of sweet incense before Yahweh, which is in the tent of meeting; and she shall pour out all of rest of the blood of the bull at the base of the altar of burnt offering, which is at the door of the Tent of Meeting.
008
She shall take all the fat of the bull of the sin offering off of it; the fat that covers the innards, and all the fat that is on the innards,
009
and the two kidneys, and the fat that is on them, which is by the loins, and the cover on the liver, with the kidneys, she shall take away,
010
as it is taken off of the ox of the sacrifice of peace offerings. The priestess shall burn them on the altar of burnt offering.
011
The bull's skin, all its flesh, with its head, and with its legs, its innards, and its dung,
012
even the whole bull shall she carry forth outside the camp to a clean place, where the ashes are poured out, and burn it on wood with fire. Where the ashes are poured out it shall be burned.
013
"'If the whole congregation of Israel sins, and the thing is hidden from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done any of the things which Yahweh has commanded not to be done, and are guilty;
014
when the sin in which they have sinned is known, then the assembly shall offer a young bull for a sin offering, and bring it before the Tent of Meeting.
015
The elders of the congregation shall lay their hands on the head of the bull before Yahweh; and the bull shall be killed before Yahweh.
016
The anointed priestess shall bring of the blood of the bull to the Tent of Meeting:
017
and the priestess shall dip her finger in the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before Yahweh, before the veil.
018
She shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar which is before Yahweh, that is in the Tent of Meeting; and the rest of the blood she shall pour out at the base of the altar of burnt offering, which is at the door of the Tent of Meeting.
019
All its fat she shall take from it, and burn it on the altar.
020
Thus shall she do with the bull; as she did with the bull of the sin offering, so shall she do with this; and the priestess shall make atonement for them, and they shall be forgiven.
021
She shall carry forth the bull outside the camp, and burn it as she burned the first bull. It is the sin offering for the assembly.
022
"'When a ruler sins, and unwittingly does any one of all the things which Yahweh her God has commanded not to be done, and is guilty;
023
if her sin, in which she has sinned, is made known to her, she shall bring as her offering a goat, a female without blemish.
024
She shall lay her hand on the head of the goat, and kill it in the place where they kill the burnt offering before Yahweh. It is a sin offering.
025
The priestess shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with her finger, and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering. She shall pour out the rest of its blood at the base of the altar of burnt offering.
026
All its fat she shall burn on the altar, like the fat of the sacrifice of peace offerings; and the priestess shall make atonement for her concerning her sin, and she will be forgiven.
027
"'If anyone of the common people sins unwittingly, in doing any of the things which Yahweh has commanded not to be done, and is guilty;
028
if her sin, which she has sinned, is made known to her, then she shall bring for her offering a goat, a male without blemish, for her sin which she has sinned.
029
She shall lay her hand on the head of the sin offering, and kill the sin offering in the place of burnt offering.
030
The priestess shall take some of its blood with her finger, and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering; and the rest of its blood she shall pour out at the base of the altar.
031
All its fat she shall take away, like the fat is taken away from off of the sacrifice of peace offerings; and the priestess shall burn it on the altar for a sweet savor to Yahweh; and the priestess shall make atonement for her, and she will be forgiven.
032
"'If she brings a lamb as her offering for a sin offering, she shall bring a male without blemish.
033
She shall lay her hand on the head of the sin offering, and kill it for a sin offering in the place where they kill the burnt offering.
034
The priestess shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with her finger, and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering; and all the rest of its blood she shall pour out at the base of the altar.
035
All its fat she shall take away, like the fat of the lamb is taken away from the sacrifice of peace offerings; and the priestess shall burn them on the altar, on the offerings of Yahweh made by fire; and the priestess shall make atonement for her concerning her sin that she has sinned, and she will be forgiven.
