Study. Azazel English. By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.

In Leviticus 16 , the Bible covers how to carry out the conclusion of Yom Kippur.
Yom means " day " in Hebrew and Kippur comes from a root meaning " atone " . So Yom Kippur means Day of Atonement " Scripture gives clear instructions on how to perform the ritual:

  • Indicated only on this day the Kohen Gadol ( the High Priest) can enter the Holy of Holies. Lev . 16.2 .
  • The high priest had to submit to a bull ( for the atonement of their sins ) and a ram for a burnt offering . Lev.16.3
  • As you dress in clothes of linen, after bathing with purified water.
  • First offered in the Novillo atonement for his sins and those of his household . Lev.16.6
  • The people had the high priest two goats (equal perfect and equivalent economic value), which were presented before the Lord. Lots for the two animals are cast , one would be sacrificed as a burnt offering to God and the other would be sent to Azazel (after charging on him the sins of the entire nation - Lev.16.25 ) . Lev . 16.5 - 25 .

Who or what was Azazel ?

This goat , or " Scapegoat " represents Satan , the High Priest missed on all the sin of the people, thus making it entirely responsible for evil. Many understand that this is a prophetic type of the Great Day of the Lord, where all sins upon Satan and will be thrown into Hell itself (along with the Beast and the False Prophet). You can draw a parallel between the prophetic type and antitype ( fulfillment in the NT ) :

In the OT who carried the goat on the sins of the people was the High Priest after the order of Aaron.
In the N. T. Jesus is the High Priest , after the order of Melchizedek. (Ps. 110.4 ) and the Day of the Lord " the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone , where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever ." Ap.20.10 RV60 .

עֲזָאזֵל azazel , meaning in the Torah is symbolic and does not appear explicitly , is clearly the name of a demon in the various ancient writings and satanic manuals.
According to Lev . 16, " In Jewish demonology, is an evil spirit who took their sins in the wilderness ."

According to the Book of Enoch " Azazel is one of the leaders of the two hundred fallen angels " who took the " daughters of men in Genesis 6 [1 ] .

"In the apocryphal book of the Apocalypse of Abraham, Azazel is described as a terrible demon with 7 serpent heads , faces fourteen and twelve wings, before his fall .

Says the comment from the King James 1995 version :

" [7 ] 16.8 Azazel . Name that could refer to a demon The ancients believed that this demonic being lived in the desert here is not a sacrifice offered (a / scapegoat ), because the goat was sent alive to desert. "

I hope this post has served to clarify the passage.

Blessings to all ,
