Exodus 29:36

Καὶ τὸ μοσχάριον τῆς ἁμαρτίας ποιήσεις τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τοῦ καθαρισμοῦ, καὶ καθαριεῖς τὸ θυσιαστήριον ἐν τῷ ἁγιάζειν σε ἐπ᾿ αὐτῷ, καὶ χρίσεις αὐτὸ ὥστε ἁγιάσαι αὐτό.

And the calf of the sin (offering) you shall do on the day of purification, and you shall purify the altar when you consecrate upon it, and you shall anoint it so as to sanctify it.

ופר חטאת תעשׂה ליום על־הכפרים וחטאת על־המזבח בכפרך עליו ומשׁחת אתו לקדשׁו׃


*   sin OR sin (offering). Here, the Hebrew word חטאת is not in the sense of “sin” but rather of “sin offering.”  It occurs three times as such in Exodus – Exodus 29:14 and Exodus 30:10.
