How the high priest must enter into the holy place.
Leviticus 16:1 And the Lorde spake vnto Moses after the death of the twoo sonnes of Aaron, when they had offered before the Lorde and dyed: And he sayd vnto Moses: Leviticus 16:2 speake vnto Aaron thy brother that he goo at all tymes in to the holy place, that is within the vayle that hangeth before the mercyseate which is vpon þe arck that he dye not. For I wyl appeare in a clowde vpon the mercyseate. Leviticus 16:3 But of thys maner shall Aaron goo in to the holy place: with a bullock for a synneofferyng, and a ram for a burntofferyng. Leviticus 16:4 And he shall put the holy lynen albe vpon hym, and shal haue a lynen breche vpon his flesh, and shal gyrde him with a lynen gyrdel, and put the lynen mytre vpon his heed: for they are holy raymentes. And he shal wasshe hys flesh wyth water, and put them on. Leviticus 16:5 And he shall take of the multitude of the chyldren of Israell two he gootes for a synneofferyng & a ram for a burntofferyng. Leviticus 16:6 And Aaron shall offer the bullock for hys synneoffryng & make an attonement for hym and for hys house. Leviticus 16:7 And he shall take the two gootes & present them before the Lord in the dore of the tabernacle of witnesse. Leviticus 16:8 And Aaron shall cast lottes ouer the twoo gootes: one lotte for the Lorde, and another for a scapegoote. Leviticus 16:9 And Aaron shal brynge the goote vpon which the Lordes lotte fel, & offer hym for a synneofferyng. Leviticus 16:10 But the goote on whych the lotte fell to scape, he shal set alyue before the Lorde to reconcyle wyth and to let hym goo fre in to the wyldernesse.
The sin offering for himself.
Leviticus 16:11 And Aaron shall brynge the bullock of hys synneoffryng, and reconcyle for him selfe and for his houshold, and kyl hym. Leviticus 16:12 And then he shal take a censer ful of burnyng coles out of the alter that is before the Lord, and hys handfull of swete cens beten smal and bryng them within the vayle Leviticus 16:13 & put the cens vpon the fyre before the Lord: that the cloude of the cens maye couer the mercyseate that is vpon the wytnesse, that he dye not. Leviticus 16:14 And he shall take of the bloude of the bullock & sprynkle it wyth his fynger before the mercyseate eastwarde: euen .vij. tymes.
The sin offering for the people.
Leviticus 16:15 Then shall he kyll the goote that is the peoples synneoffryng, and bryng hys bloud wythin the vayle, and do with hys bloud as he dyd wyth the bloude of the bullock, and let hym sprynkle it toward the mercyseate, & before the mercyseate: Leviticus 16:16 and reconcile the holy place from the vnclennesse of the children of Israell, and from their trespaces & all theyr synnes. And so let him do also vnto the tabernacle of wytnesse that dwelleth with them, euen among their vnclennesses. Leviticus 16:17 And there shalbe no body in the tabernacle of wytnesse, when he goeth into make an attonement in the holy place, vntyl he come out agayn. And he shal make an attonement for hym selfe and for hys houshold, and for al the multitude of Israel. Leviticus 16:18 Then he shall goo out vnto the alter þt stondeth before the Lord, and reconcyle it, and shall take of the bloud of the bullock & of the bloude of the goote, & put it vpon the hornes of the altare rounde about, Leviticus 16:19 and sprynkle of the bloude vpon it wt hys fynger seuen tymes, and clense it, and halowe it from the vnclennesses of the chyldren of Israell.
Leviticus 16:20 And when he hath made an ende of reconcylyng the holy place & þe tabernacle of witnesse & the alter, let him brynge þe lyue goote Leviticus 16:21 and let Aaron put both hys handes vpon the heede of the lyue goote, & confesse ouer hym all the mysdeades of the chyldren of Israell, and their trespaces, and al theyr synnes: and let hym put them vpon the heed of the goote & sende him away by the handes of one that is anoynted in the wildernes. Leviticus 16:22 And the goote shal bere vpon him all their mysdeades vnto the wyldernesse, and he shal let the goote go fre in the wyldernesse. Leviticus 16:23 And let Aaron goo into the tabernacle of wytnesse & put of the lynen clothes which he put on when he went in into the holy place, & leaue them there. Leviticus 16:24 And let hym wasshe hys flesh with water in the holy place, & put on hys owne rayment, & then come out and offer his burntofferynge and the burntoffryng of the people, and make an attonement for hym selfe and for the people, Leviticus 16:25 and the fatt of the synneofferynge let hym burne vpon the alter. Leviticus 16:26 And let hym that caryed forth the scapegoote, wasshe hys clothes and bathe hys flesh in water, and then come into the hoste agayne. Leviticus 16:27 And the bullock of the synofferyng & the goote of the synofferyng (whose bloud was brought in to make an attonement in the holy place) let one carye out wythout the hoste & burne wyth fyre: both theyr skynnes, theyr flesh and their donge. Leviticus 16:28 And let him þt burneth them, wasshe hys clothes and bathe his flesh in water, & then come in to the hoste agayn.
