When the high priest sins, he makes everyone else guilty too. And so, he must sacrifice a young bull that has nothing wrong with it. 4
The priest will lead the bull to the entrance of the sacred tent, lay his hand on its head, and kill it there. 5
He will take a bowl of the blood inside the tent, 6
dip a finger in the blood, and sprinkle some of it seven times toward the sacred chest behind the curtain. 7
Then, in my presence, he will smear some of the blood on each of the four corners of the incense altar, before pouring out the rest at the foot of the bronze altar near the entrance to the tent. 8-10
The priest will remove the fat from the bull, just as he does when he sacrifices a bull to ask my blessing. This includes the fat on the insides, as well as the lower part of the liver and the two kidneys with their fat. He will then send it all up in smoke. 11-12
The skin and flesh of the bull, together with its legs, insides, and the food still in its stomach, are to be taken outside the camp and burned on a wood fire near the ash heap. Lord
