Leviticus 16:8-10 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

Aaron is to cast lots for the two goats, one lot marked “for the Lord” and the other lot marked “for the scapegoat.”[a] Aaron shall bring forward the goat that received the lot “for the Lord,” to prepare it as a sin offering, 10 but the goat that received the lot marked “for the scapegoat” is to be kept alive before the Lord, to make atonement upon it[b] in order to send it off into the wilderness as the scapegoat.


  1. Leviticus 16:8 The Hebrew means for azazel. The meaning of azazel is disputed. The phrase probably means for the goat to be sent away.
  2. Leviticus 16:10 Verse 21 explains how atonement is made upon the goat.
