Law of trespass offerings

5:1 AND if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and [is] a witness, whether he has seen or known [of it]; if he do not utter [it], then he shall bear his iniquity.
5:2 Or if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether [it be] a carcase of an unclean beast, or a carcase of unclean cattle, or the carcase of unclean creeping things, and [if] it be hidden from him; he also shall be unclean, and guilty.
5:3 Or if he touch the uncleanness of man, what ever uncleanness [it be] that a man shall be defiled withal, and it be hid from him; when he knows [of it], then he shall be guilty.
5:4 Or if a soul swear, pronouncing with [his] lips to do evil, or to do good, what ever [it be] that a man shall pronounce with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he knows [of it], then he shall be guilty in one of these.
5:5 And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these [things], that he shall confess that he has sinned in that [thing]
5:6 And he shall bring his trespass offering to the LORD for his sin which he has sinned, a female from the flock, a lamb or a kid of the goats, for a sin offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his sin.

5:11 But if he be not able to bring two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a sin offering; he shall put no oil upon it, neither shall he put [any] frankincense thereon for it [is] a sin offering.
5:12 Then shall he bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take his handful of it, [even ] a memorial thereof, and burn [it] on the altar, according to the offerings made by fire to the LORD it [is] a sin offering.
5:13 And the priest shall make an atonement for him as touching his sin that he has sinned in one of these, and it shall be forgiven him and [the remnant] shall be the priest’s, as a meat offering.

Sin through ignorance


5:14 And the LORD spake to Moses, saying,
5:15 If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, in the holy things of the LORD ; then he shall bring for his trespass to the LORD a ram without blemish out of the flocks, with your estimation by shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering
5:16 And he shall make amends for the harm that he has done in the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto, and give it to the priest and the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.
5:17 And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD ; though he wist [it] not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.
5:18 And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock, with your estimation, for a trespass offering, to the priest and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his ignorance wherein he erred and wist [it] not, and it shall be forgiven him.
5:19 It [is] a trespass offering he has certainly trespassed against the LORD.
