“‘This is what the Lord God says: On the first day of the first month take a young bull ·that has nothing wrong with it [without blemish/defect]. Use it to ·make the Temple pure and ready for God’s service [L purify the sanctuary].
“‘This is the Message from God, the Master: On the first day of the first month, take an unblemished bull calf and purify the Sanctuary. The priest is to take blood from the sin offerings and rub it on the doorposts of the Temple, on the four corners of the ledge of the altar, and on the gate entrance to the inside courtyard.

The Lord God saith these things, In the first month, in the first day of the month, thou shalt take a calf without wem of the drove, and thou shalt cleanse the saintuary. (The Lord God saith these things, In the first month, on the first day of the month, thou shalt take a calf without blemish, or without fault, from the herd, and thou shalt cleanse, or thou shalt purify, the sanctuary.)
