Exodus 29:11,12
And thou shalt kill the bullock before the LORD, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation…









(16) Thou shalt take his blood, and sprinkle it.--Rather, scatter it. The act of throwing the blood from a basin against the lower part of the altar is intended. The verb is a different one from that rightly translated "sprinkle" in Exodus 29:21. The LXX. render it by ????????, and the Vulg. by fundere.

Round about upon the altar.--Practically, this was done by casting it on two of the corners of the altar--the north-east and the south-west--thus moistening all the four sides (Middoth, 3:2).

Verse 16. - Thou shalt take his blood and sprinkle it. Rather, "and cast it." The blood was to be thrown from a basin, not sprinkled with the hand or with hyssop. Rabbinical tradition says that it was so cast at two of the corners, and thus moistened all the four sides. This was regarded as casting it "on the altar round about."
