1. The verse states, "When I will call out the name of Hashem, give greatness to our G-d." Moshe said to Bnei Yisrael, "Whenever I mention the name of Hashem, call out (i.e. by saying 'Baruch Shem Kevod') and give greatness to Him."
2. The lottery would have two lots, one on which "la'Hashem" was written, which would represent the goat to be offered as a Korban, and one on which "la'Azazel" was written, for the goat that would be pushed off of the cliff, taking with it the sins of Bnei Yisrael.
