“If the anointed priest[a](A) sins, bringing guilt(B) on the people, he is to present to the Lord a young, unblemished(C) bull as a sin[b] offering(D) for the sin he has committed. He must bring the bull to the entrance to the tent of meeting before the Lord, lay his hand on the bull’s head, and slaughter it before the Lord. The anointed priest must then take some of the bull’s blood and bring it into the tent of meeting. The priest is to dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle some of it seven times(E) before the Lord in front of the veil(F) of the sanctuary.(G) The priest must apply some of the blood to the horns of the altar of fragrant incense(H) that is before the Lord in the tent of meeting. He must pour out the rest of the bull’s blood at the base of the altar of burnt offering(I) that is at the entrance to the tent of meeting.
