14. How was the sanctuary itself to be cleansed, and how were the sins of the people to be finally disposed of?

Answer

"And he [the high priest] shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a
sin-offering. And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle
of the congregation. And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot
for the scapegoat' Verses 5-8.
NOTE-The Hebrew word for scapegoat is Azazel. See margin of verse 8. It is used as a proper
name, and, according to the opinion of the most ancient Hebrews and Christians, refers to Satan, or the
angel who revolted and persisted in rebellion and sin.
