Leviticus 16:26 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)

(26) And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat.—Better, And he that leadeth away the goat to Âzazel (see Lev. 16:10). As the messenger who conducted the sin-laden animal to the author of sin contracted defilement by the impurity which the victim carried away, he had both to wash his clothes and immerse his whole body in water before he was admitted into the camp. During the second Temple he remained in the last booth, which was a mile from Jerusalem, till sundown, when he was re-admitted into the camp.
