CEBCommon English Bible
10On the eighth day, that person must take two flawless male sheep, one flawless one-year-old ewe, a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah#Heb lacks ephah; an ephah is approximately twenty quarts dry. of choice flour mixed with oil, and one log#Heb log; two-thirds of a pint; also in 14:12, 15, 21, 24 of oil. 11The priest performing the purification will place these and the person needing purification before the LORD at the meeting tent’s entrance.
12The priest will take one of the male sheep and present it as a compensation offering, along with the log of oil, and will lift them as an uplifted offering before the LORD. 13The priest will slaughter the sheep at the same place where the purification offering and the entirely burned offering are slaughtered: in the holy area. The compensation offering, like the purification offering, belongs to the priest; it is most holy. 14The priest will take some of the blood from the compensation offering and will put it on the right earlobe, the right thumb, and the right big toe of the person needing purification. 15Then the priest will take some of the log of oil and pour it into his left palm. 16The priest will then dip his right finger into the oil and sprinkle some of it with his finger seven times before the LORD. 17Then the priest will put some of the oil that is left in his hand on the right earlobe, the right thumb, and the right big toe of the person needing purification—this oil will be placed on top of the blood of the compensation offering. 18The priest will put whatever is left of the oil in his hand on the head of the person needing purification. In this way, the priest will make reconciliation for the person before the LORD.
19The priest will then perform the purification offering and make reconciliation for the person needing purification from their uncleanness. After that, the entirely burned offering will be slaughtered. 20The priest will offer up the entirely burned offering and the grain offering on the altar. In this way, the priest will make reconciliation for the person, and they will be clean again.
