Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Expiation
     Guilt is said to be expiated when it is visited with punishment
     falling on a substitute. Expiation is made for our sins when
     they are punished not in ourselves but in another who consents
     to stand in our room. It is that by which reconciliation is
     effected. Sin is thus said to be "covered" by vicarious
     satisfaction.
     
       The cover or lid of the ark is termed in the LXX. hilasterion,
     that which covered or shut out the claims and demands of the law
     against the sins of God's people, whereby he became "propitious"
     to them.
     
       The idea of vicarious expiation runs through the whole Old
     Testament system of sacrifices. (See PROPITIATION.)
