And the person who burns them shall wash his garments, and he shall wash his body with water, and {afterward} he must come to the camp. "And this shall be {a lasting statute} for you: in the seventh month, on the tenth of the month, you must deny yourselves and you must not do any work, [whether] the native or the alien who is dwelling in your midst, because on this day he shall make atonement for you to cleanse you; you must be clean from all your sins {before} Yahweh. It [is] {a Sabbath of complete rest} for you, and you shall deny yourselves--[it is] {a lasting statute}. And the priest who is anointed and who is {ordained} to serve as a priest in place of his father shall make atonement; thus he shall put on the linen garments, the holy garments, and he shall make atonement for the sanctuary's holy place, and he shall make atonement for [the] tent of assembly and the altar, and he shall make atonement for the priests and for all of the assembly's people. And this shall be {a lasting statute} for you to make atonement for the {Israelites} one time in a year from all their sins."

If [there is] any person who does not deny [himself] on {this very same day}, then he shall be cut off from his people. As for any person who does any work on {this very same day}, I will exterminate that person from the midst of his people. You must not do any work; [it is] a {lasting statute} throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

He stood between the dead and between the living, and the plague was stopped.

Psalm 51:16-17

Isaiah 1:11-17

What [is the] abundance of your sacrifices to me? says Yahweh. I have had enough [of] burnt offerings of rams and [the] fat [of] fattened animals and I do not delight in [the] blood of bulls and ram-lambs and goats. When you come to appear before me, who asked for this from your hand: you trampling my courts? You must not {continue} to bring offerings of futility, incense--it [is] an abomination to me; new moon and Sabbath, [the] calling of a convocation-- I cannot endure iniquity with [solemn] assembly.read more.
Your new moons and your appointed festivals my soul hates; they have become to me like burden, I am not able to bear [them]. And when you stretch out your hands, I will hide my eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I [will] not be listening. Your hands are full of blood. Wash! Make yourselves clean!

Hebrews 9:12-22

and not by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood, he entered once for all into the [most] holy place, obtaining eternal redemption. For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a young cow sprinkled on those who are defiled sanctify [them] for the ritual purity of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works to serve [the] living God?read more.
And because of this, he is the mediator of a new covenant, in order that, [because] a death has taken place for the redemption of transgressions [committed] during the first covenant, those who are the called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance. For where [there is] a will, [it is] a necessity [for] the death of the one who made the will to be established. For a will [is] in force concerning those who are dead, since [it is] never in force when the one who made the will is alive. Therefore not even the first [covenant] was ratified without blood. For [when] every commandment had been spoken by Moses to all the people according to the law, [he] took the blood of calves with water and scarlet wool and hyssop [and] sprinkled both the scroll itself and all the people, saying, "This [is] the blood of the covenant that God has commanded for you." And likewise he sprinkled both the tabernacle and all the utensils of service with the blood. Indeed, nearly everything is purified with blood according to the law, and apart from the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

1 Peter 1:18-19
