For seven days the priests are to make ·the altar pure and ready for God’s service [L atonement for the altar and cleanse it]. Then they will ·give the altar to God [consecrate/dedicate it; L fill its hands].
“‘For seven days, prepare a goat for a sin offering daily, and also a bull and a ram from the flock, animals without blemish. For seven days the priests are to get the altar ready for its work, purifying it. This is how you dedicate it.
By seven days they shall [fully] cleanse the altar, and shall make it clean, and they shall [ful]fill the hand thereof. (And so for seven days they shall fully cleanse, or shall fully purify, the altar, and shall make it clean, and they shall consecrate it.)
