Problem: According to this verse, the priest was to take the blood of the sacrifice and “pour it on the earth like water.” But, earlier in Leviticus 17:13 they were instructed to “cover it with dust.” How can these be reconciled?
Solution: The fact that some critics raise this kind of problem shows how desperate they are to find something wrong with the Bible. The full passage in Leviticus provides the answer: “he shall pour out its blood and cover it with dust” (Lev. 17:13). So there is absolutely no problem whatsoever.
