 Sin-offering
    (Heb. hattath), the law of, is given in detail in Lev. 4-6:13;
    9:7-11, 22-24; 12:6-8; 15:2, 14, 25-30; 14:19, 31; Num. 6:10-14.
    On the day of Atonement it was made with special solemnity (Lev.
    16:5, 11, 15). The blood was then carried into the holy of
    holies and sprinkled on the mercy-seat. Sin-offerings were also
    presented at the five annual festivals (Num. 28, 29), and on the
    occasion of the consecration of the priests (Ex. 29:10-14, 36).
    As each individual, even the most private member of the
    congregation, as well as the congregation at large, and the high
    priest, was obliged, on being convicted by his conscience of any
    particular sin, to come with a sin-offering, we see thus
    impressively disclosed the need in which every sinner stands of
    the salvation of Christ, and the necessity of making application
    to it as often as the guilt of sin renews itself upon his
    conscience. This resort of faith to the perfect sacrifice of
    Christ is the one way that lies open for the sinner's attainment
    of pardon and restoration to peace. And then in the sacrifice
    itself there is the reality of that incomparable worth and
    preciousness which were so significantly represented in the
    sin-offering by the sacredness of its blood and the hallowed
    destination of its flesh. With reference to this the blood of
    Christ is called emphatically "the precious blood," and the
    blood that "cleanseth from all sin" (1 John 1:7).
