[Zech 14:19] this will be the punishment for sin of Egypt and the punishment for sin of all nations (the plague with which Yahweh will smite them).
4. sin-offering: one of the kinds of offerings of P,
[Lev 7:37] first in the history [2Kgs 12:17] (reign of Jehoash), where חטּאת of money given to priests; elsewhere only in Chronicles: [2Chr 29:21]; [2Chr 29:23]; [2Chr 29:24] Hezekiah had made a ׳ח of 7 צְפִירֵי עִזִּים at purification of temple; [Ezra 8:35] 12 צְפִירֵי ׳ח were offered; [Neh 10:34] ׳ח || עולות; — in these no evidence of special ritual. Sin-offering elsewhere only in codes of H Ezekiel and P. — On [Hos 4:8] see
1. above In H,
[Lev 23:19] a שׂעיר עזים, for feast of weeks. In Ezekiel ׳ח in general || other sacrifices, [Ezek 40:39]; [Ezek 45:17]; [Ezek 45:25]; [Ezek 46:20] and priests eat them [Ezek 42:13]; [Ezek 44:29]. At dedication of altar, the blood of a young bullock was to be applied to horns of altar, the corners of its settle and its border, the bullock itself burnt without the sanctuary; for each of the 7 days following a שׂעיר עזים was to be offered [Ezek 43:19]; [Ezek 43:21]; [Ezek 43:22]; [Ezek 43:25]. On first day of first month a young bullock was to offered to cleanse the sanctuary: its blood put on the door posts of the house and of the gate of the inner court an on the four corners of the settle of the altar; also on the seventh day (ᵐ5 first day of seventh month) [Ezek 45:17]; [Ezek 45:19] (compare v [Ezek 45:18] v [Ezek 45:20]). On 14th day of first month the prince was to offer a bullock for himself and the people and on each of the 7 days of the Passover week a שׂעיר עזים [Ezek 45:22]; [Ezek 45:23]. When a priest entered the sanctuary to minister after his cleaning he was to offer his sin-offering [Ezek 44:27]. P gives several grades:
\ \ a. a ruler should offer a he-goat
[Lev 4:24]; [Lev 4:25]; [Num 7:16]; [Num 7:22]; [Num 7:28]; [Num 7:34]; [Num 7:40]; [Num 7:46]; [Num 7:52]; [Num 7:58]; [Num 7:64]; [Num 7:70]; [Num 7:76]; [Num 7:82]; [Num 7:87] an ordinary person a she-goat [Lev 4:29] (compare v [Lev 4:28]) [Lev 5:6]; [Num 15:27], ewe lamb [Lev 4:32]; [Lev 4:33] (twice in verse); [Lev 4:34]; [Lev 14:19]; [Num 6:14]; [Num 6:16], a turtle dove or young pigeon [Lev 5:7]; [Lev 5:8]; [Lev 5:9] (twice in verse); [Lev 12:6]; [Lev 12:8]; [Lev 14:22]; [Lev 14:31]; [Lev 15:15]; [Lev 15:30]; [Num 6:11], or one-tenth of an ephah of fine flour [Lev 5:11] (twice in verse); [Lev 5:12] according to ability of the person, and nature of offence. The victim was brought unto the tent of meeting, the hands of the offerer laid on its head, it was slaughtered by the offerer, the priest took some of the blood and put it on horns of altar of burnt-offering and the rest of the blood he poured out at the base of it, to cover over the sin, or cleanse the altar from the sin defiling it. All the fat pieces (compare [Lev 4:22]; [Lev 4:35]) and a handful of the flour (compare [Lev 5:12]) were burned on altar. The rest of the flesh and the flour were eaten by priests in court of Holy place [Lev 5:13]; [Lev 6:10]; [Lev 6:18] (twice in verse); [Lev 6:23] (compare v. [Lev 6:11] v. [Lev 6:19]), [Lev 7:7]; [Lev 10:16]; [Lev 10:17]; [Lev 10:19] (twice in verse); [Lev 14:13]; [Num 18:9].
\ \ b. a bullock was offered for priests
[Exod 29:14]; [Exod 29:36]; [Lev 4:3]; [Lev 4:8]; [Lev 4:20]; [Lev 8:2]; [Lev 8:14] (twice in verse); [Lev 9:2]; [Lev 9:7]; [Lev 9:8]; [Lev 9:10] for Levites at their installation [Num 8:8]; [Num 8:12] and for whole congregation [Lev 4:14]; [Lev 4:21] but usually offering for congregation was he-goat [Num 15:24]; [Num 15:25], especially at dedication of altar [Lev 9:3]; [Lev 9:15]; [Lev 9:22]. and in ritual of feasts [Num 28:15]; [Num 28:22]; [Num 28:30]; [Num 29:5]; [Num 29:11]; [Num 29:16]; [Num 29:19]; [Num 29:22]; [Num 29:25]; [Num 29:28]; [Num 29:31]; [Num 29:34]; [Num 29:38]. Before consecration of the tabernacle the blood went to altar of burnt-offering ( [Lev 9:9]), but subsequently some of it was sprinkled seven times before the vail and some of it put on horns of altar of incense to cleanse this higher altar; the fast pieces were burned on altar of burnt-offering, and the rest of the victim burned without the camp ( [Lev 4:3-21]; [Lev 6:23]; [Lev 8:16]; [Lev 8:17]; [Lev 9:10]; [Lev 9:11]).
\ \ c. on day of atonement, sin-offering for high priest was a bullock
[Lev 16:3]; [Lev 16:6] and for congregation two he-goats, one לַעֲזָאזֵל (see עזאזל) [Lev 16:5] (compare v [Lev 16:8] v [Lev 16:10] v [Lev 16:20] v [Lev 16:22]), the other for sacrifice ליהוה [Lev 16:9] (compare v [Lev 16:8]). Some of the blood of Aaron's bullock was first taken into innermost sanctuary and sprinkled on the כפרת and seven times before it; so also blood of the he-goat [Lev 16:11] (twice in verse); [Lev 16:15] (compare v [Lev 16:12-14] v [Lev 16:16] v [Lev 16:17]) to cleanse highest altar: then the blood of the two victims was applied to lower altars as in a and b and so sin was covered over at the three altars [Exod 30:10] (compare [Lev 16:16-19]). The fat pieces went to altar of burnt-offering and the rest of the victims was burnt without the camp [Lev 16:25]; [Lev 16:27] (twice in verse). (Sins which might be covered over were limited to those committed בשׁגגה [Lev 4:2]; [Lev 4:22]; [Lev 4:27]; [Num 15:27], לשׁגגה [Num 15:24], minor offences [Lev 5:1-6] and ceremonial uncleanness [Lev 12:6]; [Lev 12:8]; [Lev 14:13]; [Lev 15:15]; [Num 6:11]; [Num 6:14].) — Pharses for sacrificing are: ׳עשׂה ח [Lev 9:7]; [Lev 9:22]; [Lev 14:19]; [Num 6:16]; [Ezek 45:17], ׳הקריב ח [Lev 10:19]; [Ezek 44:27], ׳שׁחט ח [Lev 14:13]; [Ezek 40:39].
5. purification from sins of ceremonial uncleanness, all P: ׳ח ׳מֵ
[Num 8:7] water of purification from sin; הוּא ׳מֵי נִדָּה ח water of (cleansing from) impurity, it is a purification from sin [Num 19:9] ׳עֲפַר שְׂרֵפַת הח [Num 19:17] ashes of the burning of the purification from sin (RV renders sin-offering; but there was no offering made, only water of purification was used).
