The emendation of the term "propitiation" to "expiation" by the critical interpreters.|
The Liberals (and the RSV) ignores the Septuagint, the classical meaning of the term and the Hebrew. They translate the term "propitiate" with another term "expiation" A term entirely different in meaning.
Propitiation means to appease Gods wrath by sacrifice
Expiation means to cleanse or remove defilement.
