16:3 “In this way Aaron is to enter into the sanctuary—with a young bull4 for a sin offering5 and a ram for a burnt offering.6 16:4 He must put on a holy linen tunic,7 linen leggings are to cover his body,8 and he is to wrap himself with a linen sash9 and wrap his head with a linen turban.10 They are holy garments, so he must bathe11 his body in water and put them on. 16:5 He must also take12 two male goats13 from the congregation of the Israelites for a sin offering and one ram for a burnt offering. 16:6 Then Aaron is to present the sin offering bull which is for himself and is to make atonement on behalf of himself and his household. 16:7 He must then take the two goats14 and stand them before the Lord at the entrance of the Meeting Tent, 16:8 and Aaron is to cast lots over the two goats,15 one lot for the Lord and one lot for Azazel.16 16:9 Aaron must then present the goat which has been designated by lot for the Lord,17 and he is to make it a sin offering, 16:10 but the goat which has been designated by lot for Azazel is to be stood alive18 before the Lord to make atonement on it by sending it away to Azazel into the wilderness.19
