4:14 When the violation that they have committed becomes known, the congregation must bring a young bull as a sin offering, presenting it before the Communion Tent.
Venode'ah hachatat asher chat'u aleyha vehikrivu hakahal par ben-bakar lechatat vehevi'u oto lifney Ohel Mo'ed.
4:15 The community elders shall press their hands on the bull's head before God, and it shall be slaughtered before God.
Vesamechu zikney ha'edah et-yedeyhem al-rosh hapar lifney Adonay veshachat et-hapar lifney Adonay.
4:16 The anointed priest shall bring some of the bull's blood into the Communion Tent,
Vehevi hakohen hamashi'ach midam hapar el-Ohel Mo'ed.



Commentary:

elders
  Members of the Sanhedrin. See Exodus 3:16. Actually, three elders would place their hands on the bull's head (Sanhedrin 2a; Yad, Maaseh HaKorbanoth 3:10).

it shall be...
  Literally, 'he shall.'
