For the Whole Congregation

4:13 “ ‘If the whole congregation of Israel strays unintentionally24 and the matter is not noticed by25 the assembly, and they violate one of the Lord’s commandments, which must not be violated,26 so they become guilty, 4:14 the assembly must present a young bull for a sin offering when the sin they have committed27 becomes known. They must bring it before the Meeting Tent, 4:15 the elders of the congregation must lay their hands on the head of the bull before the Lord, and someone must slaughter28 the bull before the Lord. 4:16 Then the high priest29 must bring some of the blood of the bull to the Meeting Tent, 4:17 and that priest must dip his finger in the blood30 and sprinkle31 some of the blood seven times32 before the Lord toward33 the front of the veil-canopy.34 4:18 He must put some of the blood on the horns of the altar35 which is before the Lord in the Meeting Tent, and all the rest of the blood he must pour out at the base of the altar of burnt offering that is at the entrance of the Meeting Tent.

4:19 “ ‘Then the priest36 must take all its fat37 and offer the fat38 up in smoke on the altar. 4:20 He must do with the rest of the bull just as he did with the bull of the sin offering; this is what he must do with it.39 So the priest will make atonement40 on their behalf and they will be forgiven.41 4:21 He42 must bring the rest of the bull outside the camp43 and burn it just as he burned the first bull—it is the sin offering of the assembly.
