Abstract

pp.38-39 Hand-leaning is not "an act of dedication to sacrificial death," but an act of identification of the sacrifice's offerer (my commentary, pp. 150-153.) p.51,n.6 Overlooked is 21:24, whose important purpose is to indicate that the instructions to the priests are not their exclusive law but belong to all of Israel. pp. 75-82 I oppose the function of "appease" for reah niMh. This expression does not appear in any of the exclusively expiatory sacrifices, the purification and reparation offerings (with the exception of 4:31, where it is probably an intrusion)--even though one of their functions is to appease! The connection between hand-leaning and atonement (v. 4) is p. 79 that the former is indispensable for the latter. p.85,n.67 I prefer "burnt offering" for 'Blah (my commentary, pp. 72-74). The text presumes one officiating priest and others to assist p.87 him, as proven by 7:8, but only the officiant receives the animal's skin (my commentary, p. 163). The verb Sohal means "slit the throat" (my commentary, pp. p.88 154-155), and the other verbs are equally precise. To this reviewer's unskillful eye, the text is free of typos with the exception of the Hebrew on pp. 63 and 88. Jacob
