How the high priest must enter into the holy place.
Leviticus 16:1 And the Lord spake vnto Moses after the deeth of the two sonnes of Aaron, when they offered before the Lorde, and dyed: And he sayde vnto Moses: Leviticus 16:2 speake vnto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all tymes into the holy place wythin the vayle before þe mercyseate, whych is vpon the arke, that he dye not. For I will appeare in the clowde vpon the mercyseate. Leviticus 16:3 But with thys thynge shall Aaron come into the holy place: euen wt a bullock for synne, and wyth a ram for a burntofferynge. Leviticus 16:4 He shall put the holy lynen albe vpon him, and shall haue a lynen breche vpon hys fleshe, and shall be gyrded wyth a lynen gyrdell, & put the lynen mytre vpon hys heede: These are holy garmentes: therfore shall he washe his fleshe in water, whan he doth put them on. Leviticus 16:5 And he shall take of the multitude of þe chyldren of Israel, two he goates for synne, and a ram for a burntofferynge. Leviticus 16:6 And Aaron shall offer hys bullock for synne, and make an attonement for hym, and for hys house. Leviticus 16:7 And he shall take the two goates, and present them before the Lorde at the dore of the tabernacle of wytnesse. Leviticus 16:8 And Aaron shall cast lottes ouer the .ij. goates: one lotte shalbe for the Lorde, and the other for the scapegoate. Leviticus 16:9 And Aaron shall brynge the goote vpon whych the Lordes lotte fell, and offer hym for synne. Leviticus 16:10 But the goate on whych the lotte fell to scape, shall be sett alyue before the Lorde, to reconcyle wyth, and to let hym goo (as a scape goate) fre, into the wyldernesse.
The sin offering for himself.
Leviticus 16:11 And Aaron shall brynge hys bullock for synne, and reconcyle for him selfe, and for hys house, and shall kyll hys bullock for synne. Leviticus 16:12 And he shall take a censer full of burnynge coles out of the alter before the Lord, and shall fyll hys handfull of swete cens, beaten small, and brynge them wythyn the vayle, Leviticus 16:13 and put the cens vpon the fyre before the Lorde: that the cloude of the cens maye couer the mercy seate that is vpon the wytnesse, and that he dye not. Leviticus 16:14 And he shall take of the bloude of the bullock, and sprynkle it wyth hys fynger vpon the mercyseate eastwarde: and before the mercyseate shall he sprynkle of the bloude wyth hys fynger seuen tymes.
The sin offering for the people.
Leviticus 16:15 Then shall he kyll the goate that is the peoples synne offrynge, & brynge hys bloude wythin the vayle, & doo wyth that bloude, as he dyd wt the bloude of þe bullock, sprynklynge it vpon the mercyseate, and before the mercyseate. Leviticus 16:16 And he shal reconcyle the holy place from the vnclennesses of the chyldren of Israel, and from their trespaces in all theyr synnes. And so shall he doo for the tabernacle of witnesse that is set amonge them, euen amonge their vnclennesses. Leviticus 16:17 And let there be no bodye in the tabernacle of wytnesse, when he goeth in to make an attonement in the holy place, vntyll he come out. And let hym make an attonement for hym selfe and for hys housholde, and for all the multitude of Israel. Leviticus 16:18 And he shall go out vnto the alter that is before the Lorde, & reconcyle vpon it, and shall take of the bloude of the bullock, and of the bloude of þe goate, and put it vpon the hornes of the altare rounde aboute, Leviticus 16:19 and sprynckle of the bloude vpon it with his fynger seuen tymes, and clense it, and halowe it from the vnclennesses of the chyldren of Israel.
Leviticus 16:20 And when he hath made an ende of reconcylinge the holy place, and the tabernacle of wytnesse, and the alter, he shall brynge the lyue goate: Leviticus 16:21 and Aaron shall put both hys handes vpon the heed of the lyue goate, and confesse ouer hym all the mysdeades of the chyldren of Israell, and all their trespaces, in all their synnes: puttynge them vpon the heed of the goate, and sende hym awaye (by the hande of a conuenient man) into the wyldernesse. Leviticus 16:22 And the goate shall bere vpon hym all theyr mysdeades vnto the wyldernesse, and he shall let the goate goo fre into the wyldernesse. Leviticus 16:23 And Aaron shall come into the Tabernacle of wytnesse, and put of the lynen clothes whych he put on (when he went in into the holy place) and leaue them there. Leviticus 16:24 And lett hym wasshe hys fleshe with water in the holy place, and put on hys owne rayment, and then come out, and offer hys burntoffrynge and the burntoffrynge of the people, and make an attonement for hym selfe and for the people, Leviticus 16:25 and the fatt of the synofferynge shall he burne vpon the alter. Leviticus 16:26 And he that caryed forth the goate to Azazell, shall wasshe hys clothes, and bathe hys fleshe in water, and then come into the hoste. Leviticus 16:27 And the bullock whych is for synne, and the goate that is for synne, (whose bloude was brought in, to clense the holy place) shall one carye out wythout the hoste to be burnt in the fyre, wyth theyr skynnes, their fleshe & their donge. Leviticus 16:28 And he that burneth them, shall wasshe hys clothes, and bathe hys fleshe in water, and then come into the hooste.
The yearly feast of the expiations.
Leviticus 16:29 And thys shalbe an ordinaunce for euer vnto you: that in the tenth daye of the seuenth moneth, ye humble youre soules, and do no worke at all: whether it be one of youre selues or a straunger that soiourneth amonge you, Leviticus 16:30 for that daye shall the prest make an attonement for you to clense you, and that ye maye be cleane from all youre synnes before the Lorde. Leviticus 16:31 Let it be a Sabboth of rest vnto you, and ye shall humble youre soules, by an ordinaunce for euer. Leviticus 16:32 And the Preaste that is anoynted, and whose hande was consecrated (to mynistre in hys fathers steade) shall make the attonement, and shall put on the lynen clothes & holy vestimentes, Leviticus 16:33 and reconcyle the holy sanctuary and the Tabernacle of wytnesse, and shall clense the alter, and make an attonement then for the preastes and for all the people of the congregacyon. Leviticus 16:34 And this shalbe an euerlastynge ordinaunce vnto you, that he make an attonement for the chyldren of Israel for all their synnes once a yere: & he dyd as the Lorde commaunded Moses.
