Leviticus 4:11-12

Context
4:11 But the hide of the bull, all its flesh along with its head and its legs, its entrails, and its dung – 4:12 all the rest of the bull 1  – he must bring outside the camp 2  to a ceremonially clean place, 3  to the fatty ash pile, 4  and he must burn 5  it on a wood fire; it must be burned on the fatty ash pile.

Leviticus 6:30

Context
6:30 But any sin offering from which some of its blood is brought into the Meeting Tent to make atonement in the sanctuary must not be eaten. It must be burned up in the fire. 6 

1 tn All of v. 11 is a so-called casus pendens (also known as an extraposition or a nominative absolute), which means that it anticipates the next verse, being the full description of “all (the rest of) the bull” (lit. “all the bull”) at the beginning of v. 12 (actually after the first verb of the verse; see the next note below).

2 tn Heb “And he (the offerer) shall bring out all the bull to from outside to the camp to a clean place.”

3 tn Heb “a clean place,” but referring to a place that is ceremonially clean. This has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 tn Heb “the pouring out [place] of fatty ash.”

5 tn Heb “burn with fire.” This expression is somewhat redundant in English, so the translation collocates “fire” with “wood,” thus “a wood fire.”

6 tn Heb “burned with fire,” an expression which is sometimes redundant in English, but here means “burned up,” “burned up entirely.”
