“When a ruler sins, doing unwittingly any one of all the things that by the commandments of Yahweh his God ought not to be done. He incurs guilt. Once the sin that he has committed is made known to him, he shall bring as his offering a male goat without blemish. He shall lay his hand on the head of the goat. It shall be slaughtered at the spot where the burnt offering is slaughtered before Yahweh. It is a sin offering. Then the priest shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering. He will pour out the rest of its blood at the base of the altar of burnt offering. All its fat he shall turn into smoke on the altar, like the fat of the sacrifice of well-being. Thus the priest shall make atonement on his behalf for his sin. He shall be forgiven.”
If the ruler unintentionally sins, he had to offer a male goat without blemish, not a bull. Interesting enough, there are no rulers mentioned yet, so that it obviously places this prescription at a later date when there is a settled society. Once again, he lays his hand on its head and slaughters him at the holocaust table outside the tent. This time the blood stays at the base of this holocaust table and not the table in the tent. The fat then becomes the offering. Thus the priest makes atonement on his behalf for his sin and he is forgiven. There is no mention of what happens to the rest of the goat.
