Leviticus Chapter 4

Leviticus 4:2
4:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a soul shall
    sin through {a} ignorance against any of the commandments of
    the LORD [concerning things] which ought not to be done, and
    shall do against any of them:

    (a) That is, of negligence or ignorance, especially in the
        ceremonial law: for otherwise the punishment for a crime
        is determined according to the transgression,
        Numbers 15:22.

Leviticus 4:3
4:3 If {b} the priest that is anointed do sin according to the
    sin of the people; then let him bring for his sin, which he
    hath sinned, a young bullock without blemish unto the LORD
    for a sin offering.

    (b) Meaning, the high priest.

Leviticus 4:4
4:4 And he shall bring the bullock unto the door of the
    tabernacLe of the congregation before the LORD; and shall
    lay his hand upon the bullock's head, and {c} kill the
    bullock before the LORD.

    (c) By this confessing that he deserved the same punishment
        which the beast suffered.

Leviticus 4:6
4:6 And the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and
    sprinkLe of the blood seven times before the LORD, before
    the vail of the {d} sanctuary.

    (d) Which was between the holiest of holies and the
        sanctuary.

Leviticus 4:7
4:7 And the priest shall put [some] of the blood upon the horns
    of the altar of sweet incense before the LORD, which [is] in
    the {e} tabernacLe of the congregation; and shall pour all
    the blood of the bullock at the bottom of the altar of the
    burnt offering, which [is at] the door of the tabernacLe of
    the congregation.

    (e) Which was in the court: meaning by the tabernacLe the
        sanctuary: and in the end of this verse it is taken for
        the court.

Leviticus 4:13
4:13 And if the {f} whoLe congregation of Israel sin through
     ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the
     assembly, and they have done [somewhat against] any of the
     commandments of the LORD [concerning things] which should
     not be done, and are guilty;

     (f) The multitude does not excuse the sin, but if all have
         sinned, they must all be punished.

Leviticus 4:15
4:15 And the {g} elders of the congregation shall lay their
     hands upon the head of the bullock before the LORD: and the
     bullock shall be killed before the LORD.

     (g) For all the peopLe could not lay on their hands:
         therefore it was sufficient that the elders of the
         peopLe did it in the name of all the congregation.

Leviticus 4:24
4:24 And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the goat, and
     kill it {h} in the place where they kill the burnt offering
     before the LORD: it [is] a sin offering.

     (h) That is, the priest shall kill it; for it was not
         lawful for any out of that office to kill the beast.

Leviticus 4:26
4:26 And he shall burn all his fat upon the altar, as the fat of
     the sacrifice of peace offerings: and the priest shall make
     {i} an atonement for him as concerning his sin, and it
     shall be forgiven him.

     (i) In which he represented Jesus Christ.

Leviticus 4:29
4:29 {k} And he shall lay his hand upon the head of the sin
     offering, and slay the sin offering in the place of the
     burnt offering.

     (k) Read Leviticus 4:24.

Leviticus 4:33
4:33 And he shall lay his {l} hand upon the head of the sin
     offering, and slay it for a sin offering in the place where
     they kill the burnt offering.

     (l) Meaning that the punishment of his sin should be laid
         on the beast, or, that he had received all things from
         God, and offered this willingly.

Leviticus 4:35
4:35 And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat of
     the lamb is taken away from the sacrifice of the peace
     offerings; and the priest shall burn them upon the altar,
     {m} according to the offerings made by fire unto the LORD:
     and the priest shall make an atonement for his sin that he
     hath committed, and it shall be forgiven him.

     (m) Or, besides the burnt offerings, which were daily
         offered to the Lord.
