    Definitions for Leviticus 9:2

    Without - Outside.

    Clarke's Commentary on Leviticus 9:2

    Take thee a young calf, etc. - As these sacrifices were for Aaron himself, they are furnished by himself and not by the people, for they were designed to make atonement for his own sin. See Leviticus 4:3. And this is supposed by the Jews to have been intended to make an atonement for his sin in the matter of the golden calf. This is very probable, as no formal atonement for that transgression had yet been made.

    Barnes' Notes on Leviticus 9:2

    A young calf - A bull calf, which might have been what we should call a yearling ox.

    Wesley's Notes on Leviticus 9:2

    9:2 For a sin - offering - For himself and his own sins, which was an evidence of the imperfection of that priesthood, and of the necessity of a better. The Jewish writers suggest, that a calf was appointed, to remind him of his sin in making the golden calf. Thereby he had rendered himself for ever unworthy of the honour of the priesthood: on which he had reason to reflect with sorrow and shame, in all the atonements he made.
