(Read Leviticus 16 Part 1 First)

23 "As Aaron enters the Tabernacle, he must take off the linen garments he wore when he entered the Most Holy Place, and he must leave the garments there.

24 Then he must bathe his entire body with water in a sacred place, put on his garments, and go out to sacrifice his own whole burnt offering and the whole burnt offering for the people. In this way, he will make atonement for himself and for the people.

25 He must also burn all the fat of the sin offering on the altar.

26 "The man chosen to send the goat out into the wilderness as a scapegoat must wash his clothes and bathe in water. Then he may return to the camp.

27 "The bull and goat given as sin offerings, whose blood Aaron brought into the Most Holy Place to make atonement for Israel, will be carried outside the camp to be burned. This includes the animals' hides, the internal organs, and the dung.

28 The man who does the burning must wash his clothes and bathe himself in water before returning to the camp.

29 "On the appointed day in early autumn,* you must spend the day fasting and not do any work. This is a permanent law for you, and it applies to those who are Israelites by birth, as well as to the foreigners living among you.1

30 On this day, atonement will be made for you, and you will be cleansed from all your sins in the LORD's presence.

31 It will be a Sabbath day of total rest, and you will spend the day in fasting. This is a permanent law for you.

32 In future generations, the atonement ceremony will be performed by the anointed high priest who serves in place of his ancestor Aaron. He will put on the holy linen garments

33 and make atonement for the Most Holy Place, the Tabernacle, the altar, the priests, and the entire community.

34 This is a permanent law for you, to make atonement for the Israelites once each year." Moses followed all these instructions that the LORD had given to him.
