8 Then Aaron shall cast lots over the two he goats: one lot for the Lord, and the other for the [a]Scapegoat.
9 And Aaron shall offer the goat, upon which the Lord’s lot shall fall, and make him a sin offering.
10 But the goat, on which the lot shall fall to be the Scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make reconciliation by him, and to let him go (as a Scapegoat) into the wilderness.
Leviticus 16:8In Hebrew it is called Azazel, which some say, is a mountain near Sinai, whither this goat was sent, but rather it is called the Scapegoat, because it was not offered, but sent into the desert, as verse 11.
