Then the priest shall pour out {some of} the oil on his own left palm, and with his right finger the priest shall spatter {some of} the oil that [is] on his left palm seven times {before} Yahweh. Then the priest shall put {some of} the oil that [is] on his palm on the right ear's lobe of the one who presents himself for cleansing and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe on the place of the guilt offering's blood.
