  • Sarah on Isaiah 33:18 - 3 years ago
    I have heard it preached that when the High Priest entered into the Holy of Holies to offer the sacrifice, a rope or cord was tied to his ankle, so he could be removed should he have sin found and the sacrifice not be accepted by GOD. Is this scriptural?

    I have searched but am unable to find the answer.

    Greetings, Sarah, on The Lord's Day.

    "And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat." Lev 16:2.

    Read the whole chapter and you'll see how particular God was with what Aaron was to do, EXACTLY as instructed.

    However, there is no reliable historical account that would support the rope around the ankle story.
