Leviticus 16:8-10 International Standard Version (ISV)

Aaron is to cast lots over the two male goats—one lot for the Lord and the other one for the scapegoat.[a] Aaron is then to bring the male goat on which the lot fell for the Lord and offer it as a sin offering. 10 The male goat on which the lot fell for the scapegoat is to be brought alive into the Lord’s presence to make atonement for himself. Then he is to send it into the wilderness.”


  1. Leviticus 16:8 So with LXX; MT reads for Azazel; i.e. the goat that will be sent away
