4:13 “‘If the whole congregation of Israel strays unintentionally 1 and the matter is not noticed by 2 the assembly, and they violate one of the Lord’s commandments, which must not be violated, 3 so they become guilty,
4:21 He 4 must bring the rest of the bull outside the camp 5 and burn it just as he burned the first bull – it is the sin offering of the assembly.
16:17 Nobody is to be in the Meeting Tent 6 when he enters to make atonement in the holy place until he goes out, and he has made atonement on his behalf, on behalf of his household, and on behalf of the whole assembly of Israel.
16:33 and he is to purify 7 the Most Holy Place, 8 he is to purify the Meeting Tent and the altar, 9 and he is to make atonement for 10 the priests and for all the people of the assembly.
2 tn Heb “is concealed from the eyes of”; NASB, NRSV, NLT “escapes the notice of.”
5 tn Heb “And he shall bring out the bull to from outside to the camp.”
8 tn Heb “the sanctuary of the holy place.” Although this is the only place this expression occurs in the OT, it clearly refers to the innermost shrine behind the veil-canopy, where the ark of the covenant was located.
9 tn Heb “and the tent of meeting and the alter he shall atone.” The repetition of the verb כִּפֶּר (kipper, “to atone”) at the beginning and end of the sequence appears to be strange, but the MT accents suggest that only “the Most Holy Place” goes with the verb at the beginning of the verse. Of course, the purging of “the Most Holy Place” has been the main emphasis of this chapter from the start (see vv. 2-3 and 11-17).
10 tn At this point in the verse the verb כִּפֶּר (kipper, “to make atonement”) takes its object with the preposition עַל (’al, “for”; literally, “upon”; contrast the first part of the verse and cf. the notes on Lev 1:4 and 16:20 above).
