    Barnes' Notes on Leviticus 16:22

    Unto a land not inhabited - Unto a place cut off, or (as in the margin) a place "of separation."

    It is evident that the one signification of the ceremony of this goat was the complete removal of the sins which were confessed over him. No symbol could so plainly set forth the completeness of Yahweh's acceptance of the penitent, as a sin-offering in which a life was given up for the altar, and yet a living being survived to carry away all sin and uncleanness.
