Leviticus 16

How the high priest must enter into the holy place.

Leviticus 16:1 And the LORDE spake vnto Moses (after that Aarons two sonnes were deed, whan they offered before the LORDE) & sayde: Leviticus 16:2 Speake vnto Aaron thy brother, yt he go not at all tymes in to ye ynnermer Sanctuary, within the vale before the Mercyseate, which is vpon the Arke, yt he dye not: for I wyll appeare in a cloude vpon ye Mercyseate. Leviticus 16:3 But herewithall shal he go in, euen with a yonge bullocke for a synofferynge, and with a ramme for a burntofferynge, Leviticus 16:4 and shal put on the holy lynnen albe, and haue lynnen breches vpon his flesh, and gyrde him with a lynne girdell, and haue the lynnen myter vpon his heade. For these are ye holy garmentes: & he shal bathe his flesh with water, & put them on: Leviticus 16:5 & of the cogregacion of the childre of Israel he shal take two he goates for a synofferynge, and a ramme for a burntofferynge. Leviticus 16:6 And Aaron shal brynge the bullocke his owne synofferynge, and make an attonemet for himself and his house: Leviticus 16:7 and afterwarde shall he take the two goates, and present them before the LORDE, euen before the dore of the Tabernacle of witnesse, Leviticus 16:8 and shall cast lottes ouer the two goates: the lot of the one goate for the LORDE, and the other for the fre goate. Leviticus 16:9 And the goate that ye LORDES lot fell vpon, shal he offre for a synofferynge. Leviticus 16:10 But the goate, that the fre goates lot fell vpon, shal he present a lyue before ye LORDE, to make an attonement for him, and to let the fre goate go into ye wyldernes.

The sin offering for himself.

Leviticus 16:11 And so shal he brynge the bullocke of his synofferynge, and make an attonement for him and his housholde, and shal kyll him. Leviticus 16:12 And he shall take a censor full of coales from the altare that stondeth before the LORDE, and his handfull of beaten incense, and brynge them in within ye vayle, Leviticus 16:13 and put the incense vpon the fyre before ye LORDE, that the cloude of the incense maye couer the Mercyseate, which is vpon the witnesse, that he dye not. Leviticus 16:14 And he shall take of the bloude of the bullocke, and sprenkle it with his fynger towarde the Mercyseate on the foresyde. Seuen tymes

The sin offering for the people.

Leviticus 16:15 shall be sprenkle of the bloude thus with his fynger before the Mercyseate. The shal he kyll the goate which is the peoples synofferynge, & brynge in of his bloude within the vayle, & shall do with his bloude, as he dyd with the bloude of the bullocke, and sprenkle therwith also on the foresyde towarde the Mercyseate, Leviticus 16:16 and so shal he reconcyle the Sactuary from the vnclennesse of the childre of Israel, and fro their trespaces in all their synnes. Thus shal he do vnto the Tabernacle of wytnesse, which is the habitacion with them amoge their vnclennesses. Leviticus 16:17 No man shalbe in the Tabernacle of witnesse, whan he goeth in to make an attonement in the Sactuary, vntyll he go out: and so shall he make an attonement for him self and his house, and for the whole congregacion of Israel. Leviticus 16:18 And wha he goeth forth vnto the altare that stondeth before the LORDE, he shal reconcyle it, and shal take of ye bullockes bloude, and of the goates bloude, & put it vpon the hornes of the altare rounde aboute. Leviticus 16:19 And with his fynger shal he sprekle of the bloude theron seuen tymes, and halowe it, and consecrate it from the vnclennesse of the children of Israel.

The scapegoat.

Leviticus 16:20 And whan he hath made an ende of reconcylinge the Sanctuary, and the Tabernacle of witnesse, and the altare, he shal bringe the lyuynge goate. Leviticus 16:21 The shal Aaron laie both his hades vpo ye heade of him, & confesse ouer him all the mysdedes of ye childre of Israel, & all their trespaces in their synnes, & shal laye the vpo ye heade of the goate, & by some man yt is at hande, shal he let him runne in to the wildernes: Leviticus 16:22 yt the goate maye so beare all their mysdedes vpon him in to ye wyldernesse, and he shal leaue him in the wyldernesse. Leviticus 16:23 And Aaron shal go in to the Tabernacle of witnesse, and put of the lynnen clothes, which he put on wha he wente in to ye Sactuary, and shal leaue them there, Leviticus 16:24 and bathe his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on his awne rayment. And he shal go forth, and make his burntofferinge, and the burntofferinge of the people, and make an attonement both for himself and for the people, Leviticus 16:25 and burne the fat of the synofferynge vpon the altare. Leviticus 16:26 But he yt caried out the fre goate, shal wash his clothes, and bathe him self with water, & then come in to the hoost. Leviticus 16:27 The bullocke of the synofferynge, and ye goate of the synofferynge (whose bloude was brought in to the Sanctuary to make an attonemet) shalbe caried out of ye hoost, & brent with fyre, both their skynnes, flesh, and donge. Leviticus 16:28 And he that burneth them, shal wash his clothes, and bathe him self with water, and then come in to the hoost.

The yearly feast of the expiations.

Leviticus 16:29 And this shalbe a perpetuall lawe vnto you: Vpon the tenth daye of the seuenth moneth shal ye humble youre soules, and do no worke, whether it be one of youre selues, or a straunger amonge you. Leviticus 16:30 For in this daye is youre attonemet made, that ye maye be clensed from all youre synnes before the LORDE: Leviticus 16:31 therfore shall it be a fre Sabbath vnto you, and ye shal humble youre soules. Let this be a perpetuall lawe. Leviticus 16:32 But the prest that is anoynted, and whose hande was fylled to be prest in his fathers steade, shal make this attonement, and shal put on the lynnen clothes, namely the holy vestimetes, Leviticus 16:33 so shal he recocyle the holy Sactuary, and the Tabernacle of wytnesse, and the altare, and ye prestes, and all the people of the congregacion. Leviticus 16:34 This shal be a perpetuall lawe vnto you, that ye reconcyle ye children of Israel from all their synnes once a yeare. And Moses dyd, as the LORDE commaunded him.
