    Clarke's Commentary on Leviticus 4:6

    Seven times - See Clarke's note on Exodus 29:30. The blood of this sacrifice was applied in three different ways:

    1. The priest put his finger in it, and sprinkled it seven times before the veil, Leviticus 4:6.

    2. He put some of it on the horns of the altar of incense.

    3. He poured the remaining part at the bottom of the altar of burnt-offerings, Leviticus 4:7.

    Before the vail of the sanctuary - This is generally understood to mean the floor of the holy place in front of the veil.

    Wesley's Notes on Leviticus 4:6

    4:6 Seven times - A number much used in scripture, as a number of perfection; and here prescribed, either to shew that his sins needed more then ordinary purgation, and more exercise of his faith and repentance, both which graces he was obliged to join with that ceremonial rite. Before the veil - The second veil dividing between the holy of holies, which is generally called the veil of the sanctuary.
