VIN(i) 2 "This is a requirement of the law the LORD has commanded: 'Tell the Israelites to bring you a red cow that is perfect, with no defects. Also, it must never have worn a yoke. 3 "'Give it to Eleazar the priest. It must be taken outside the camp and slaughtered in his presence. 4 »‘Eleazar the priest will take some of the blood with his finger and sprinkle it seven times toward the front of the tent of meeting. 5 and he burns the heifer in his eyes - her skin and her flesh and her blood, with her dung, he burns: 6 "'The priest will take some cedar wood, a hyssop sprig, and some red yarn and throw them onto the burning cow. 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 "'The person who burned the calf must also wash his clothes and his body. He will be unclean until evening. 9 And a man that is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer, and lay them up without the camp in a clean place, and it shall be kept for the congregation of the children of Israel for a water of sprinkling; it is a purification from sin.
