MSTC(i) 2 "This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD commandeth, saying, 'Speak unto the children of Israel and let them take thee a red cow without spot wherein is no blemish, and which never bare yoke upon her. 3 And ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, and he shall bring her without the host and cause her to be slain before him. 4 And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood upon his finger, and sprinkle it straight toward the tabernacle of witness seven times. 5 And he shall cause the cow to be burnt in his sight: both skin, flesh and blood, with the dung also. 6 And let the priest take cypress wood, and Hyssop and purple cloth, and cast it upon the cow as she burneth. 7 And let the priest wash his clothes and bathe his flesh in water, and then come into the host, and the priest shall be unclean unto the evening. 8 And he that burneth her, shall wash his clothes in water and bathe his flesh also in water, and be unclean until evening. 9 And one that is clean, shall go and take up the ashes of the cow, and put them without the host in a clean place, where they shall be kept to make sprinkling water for the multitude of the children of Israel: for it is a sin offering.
