Bible: Leviticus 16:29-34

Review of the Day of Atonement

16:29This is to be a perpetual statute for you. 1  In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you must humble yourselves 2  and do no work of any kind, 3  both the native citizen and the foreigner who resides 4  in your midst, 16:30 for on this day atonement is to be made for you to cleanse you from all your sins; you must be clean before the Lord. 5  16:31 It is to be a Sabbath of complete rest for you, and you must humble yourselves. 6  It is a perpetual statute. 7 

16:32The priest who is anointed and ordained to act as high priest in place of his father 8  is to make atonement. He is to put on the linen garments, the holy garments, 16:33 and he is to purify 9  the Most Holy Place, 10  he is to purify the Meeting Tent and the altar, 11  and he is to make atonement for 12  the priests and for all the people of the assembly. 16:34 This is to be a perpetual statute for you 13  to make atonement for the Israelites for 14  all their sins once a year.” 15  So he did just as the Lord had commanded Moses. 16
