You shall put your hand on its head, and it will be accepted as a sacrifice to take away your sins.
You shall kill the bull there, and the Aaronite priests shall present the blood to the LORD and then throw it against all four sides of the altar located at the entrance of the Tent.
Then you shall skin the animal and cut it up,
and the priests shall arrange firewood on the altar and light it.
