1 tn The pronoun “he” refers to the priest mentioned in the previous verse.
2 tn Regarding these ritual materials, see the note on v. 4 above.
sn In Lev 8:15, for example, the “sin offering” is used to “decontaminate” the burnt offering altar. As argued above (see the note on v. 7 above), these ritual materials and the procedures performed with them do not constitute a “sin offering” (contrast vv. 19 and 31 above). In fact, no sin offering was required for the purification of a house.
