Hardy animals, well adapted for life in the desert (Lev. 7:23, Deut. 32:14; 1 Sam. 19:13), tended with sheep (but separated for milking and feeding). They provided meat, milk, skins, and hair. Goats were sacrificed, e.g. on the Day of Atonement [[➝ Atonement, Day of, atonement]], (Lev. 16:9) even in the time of Jesus (cf. Matt. 25:32–3), but Christians repudiated these sacrificial rites (Heb. 9:12–14). See scapegoat.
