Aaron shall cast lots for the two goats, one lot for the Lord and the other lot for [a]the [b]scapegoat. Then Aaron shall offer the goat on which the lot for the Lord fell, and make it a [c]sin offering. 10 But the goat on which the lot for [d]the [e]scapegoat fell shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make (A)atonement upon it, to send it into the wilderness [f]as the [g]scapegoat.
