The Eighth Day Atonement Rituals
14:10 “On the eighth day he19 must take two flawless male lambs, one flawless yearling female lamb, three-tenths of an ephah of choice wheat flour as a grain offering mixed with olive oil,20 and one log of olive oil,21 14:11 and the priest who pronounces him clean will have the man who is being cleansed stand along with these offerings22 before the Lord at the entrance of the Meeting Tent.
14:12 “The priest is to take one male lamb23 and present it for a guilt offering24 along with the log of olive oil and present them as a wave offering before the Lord.25 14:13 He must then slaughter26 the male lamb in the place where27 the sin offering28 and the burnt offering29 are slaughtered,30 in the sanctuary, because, like the sin offering, the guilt offering belongs to the priest;31 it is most holy. 14:14 Then the priest is to take some of the blood of the guilt offering and put it on the right earlobe of the one being cleansed,32 on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe33 of his right foot. 14:15 The priest will then take some of the log of olive oil and pour it into his own left hand.34 14:16 Then the priest is to dip his right forefinger into the olive oil35 that is in his left hand, and sprinkle some of the olive oil with his finger seven times before the Lord. 14:17 The priest will then put some of the rest of the olive oil that is in his hand36 on the right earlobe of the one being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot, on the blood of the guilt offering, 14:18 and the remainder of the olive oil37 that is in his hand the priest is to put on the head of the one being cleansed. So the priest is to make atonement for him before the Lord.
14:19 “The priest must then perform the sin offering38 and make atonement for the one being cleansed from his impurity. After that he39 is to slaughter the burnt offering, 14:20 and the priest is to offer40 the burnt offering and the grain offering on the altar. So the priest is to make atonement for him and he will be clean.
