And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; and it shall be accepted for him to make atonement for him.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

1:4 hand upon the head. This act clearly identified the sacrificial animal with the person offering it. It is described first apparently to stress the dedication of the sinner fully to God in repentance and submission. It was to be completely consumed, none to be eaten by the priest or the sinner, and was to be offered both morning and evening, and to burn continually (Leviticus 6:13).
