Leviticus 15:14-15

Context
15:14 Then on the eighth day he is to take for himself two turtledoves or two young pigeons, 1  and he is to present himself 2  before the Lord at the entrance of the Meeting Tent and give them to the priest, 15:15 and the priest is to make one of them a sin offering 3  and the other a burnt offering. 4  So the priest 5  is to make atonement for him before the Lord for 6  his discharge.

Leviticus 15:30

Context
15:30 and the priest is to make one a sin offering and the other a burnt offering. 7  So the priest 8  is to make atonement for her before the Lord from her discharge of impurity.

1 tn Heb “from the sons of the pigeon,” referring either to “young pigeons” or “various species of pigeon” (contrast J. Milgrom, Leviticus [AB], 1:168 with J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 14; cf. Lev 1:14 and esp. 5:7-10).

2 tc The MT has the Qal form of the verb בּוֹא (bo’) “to come” here, but the LXX (followed generally by the Syriac and Tg. Ps.-J.) reflects the Hiphil form of the same verb, “to bring” as in v. 29 below. In v. 29, however, there is no additional clause “and give them to the priest,” so the Hiphil is necessary in that context while it is not necessary here in v. 14.

3 sn See the note on Lev 4:3 regarding the term “sin offering.”

4 tn Heb “and the priest shall make them one a sin offering and the one a burnt offering.” See the note on Lev 1:3 regarding the “burnt offering.”

5 tn Heb “And the priest.” The Hebrew conjunction ו (vav, “and”) can be considered to have resultative force here.

6 tn Heb “from”; see the note on 4:26.

7 tn Heb “And the priest shall make the one a sin offering and the one a burnt offering.”

8 tn Heb “And the priest.” The Hebrew conjunction ו (vav, “and”) can be considered to have resultative force here.
