The Eighth Day Atonement Rituals for the Poor Person
14:21 “If the person is poor and does not have sufficient means,41 he must take one male lamb as a guilt offering for a wave offering to make atonement for himself, one-tenth of an ephah of choice wheat flour mixed with olive oil for a grain offering, a log of olive oil,42 14:22 and two turtledoves or two young pigeons,43 which are within his means.44 One will be a sin offering and the other a burnt offering.45
14:23 “On the eighth day he must bring them for his purification to the priest at the entrance46 of the Meeting Tent before the Lord, 14:24 and the priest is to take the male lamb of the guilt offering and the log of olive oil and wave them47 as a wave offering before the Lord. 14:25 Then he is to slaughter the male lamb of the guilt offering, and 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,48 on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe49 of his right foot. 14:26 The priest will then pour some of the olive oil into his own left hand,50 14:27 and sprinkle some of the olive oil that is in his left hand with his right forefinger51 seven times before the Lord. 14:28 Then the priest is to put some of the olive oil that is in his hand52 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 place of the blood of the guilt offering, 14:29 and the remainder of the olive oil that is in the hand53 of the priest he is to put54 on the head of the one being cleansed to make atonement for him before the Lord.
14:30 “He will then make one of the turtledoves55 or young pigeons, which are within his means,56 14:31 a sin offering and the other a burnt offering along with the grain offering.57 So the priest is to make atonement for the one being cleansed before the Lord. 14:32 This is the law of the one in whom there is a diseased infection,58 who does not have sufficient means for his purification.”59
