Then someone who is ceremonially clean will gather up the ashes of the heifer and deposit them in a purified place outside the camp. They will be kept there for the community of Israel to use in the water for the purification ceremony. This ceremony is performed for the removal of sin.
"To remove the defilement, put some of the ashes from the burnt purification offering in a jar, and pour fresh water over them.
Anything made of gold, silver, bronze, iron, tin, or lead--
On the seventh day you must wash your clothes and be purified. Then you may return to the camp."
