Leviticus 5 New American Standard Bible

5 1  'Now if a person sins after he hears a public adjuration to testify when he is a witness , whether he has seen or otherwise known , if he does not tell it, then he will bear his guilt . 2  'Or if a person touches any unclean thing , whether a carcass of an unclean beast or the carcass of unclean cattle or a carcass of unclean swarming things , though it is hidden from him and he is unclean , then he will be guilty . 3  'Or if he touches human uncleanness , of whatever sort his uncleanness may be with which he becomes unclean , and it is hidden from him, and then he comes to know it, he will be guilty . 4  'Or if a person swears thoughtlessly with his lips to do evil or to do good , in whatever e matter a man may speak thoughtlessly with an oath , and it is hidden from him, and then he comes to know it, he will be guilty in one of these . 5  'So it shall be when he becomes guilty in one of these , that he shall confess that in which he has sinned . 6  'He shall also bring his guilt offering to the Lord for his sin which he has committed , a female from the flock , a lamb or a goat e as a sin offering . So the priest shall make atonement on his behalf for his sin .

7  'But if he cannot afford e a lamb , then he shall bring to the Lord his guilt offering for that in which he has sinned , two turtledoves or two young pigeons , one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering . 8  'He shall bring them to the priest , who shall offer first that which is for the sin offering and shall nip its head at the front of its neck , but he shall not sever it. 9  'He shall also sprinkle some of the blood of the sin offering on the side of the altar , while the rest of the blood shall be drained out at the base of the altar : it is a sin offering . 10  'The second he shall then prepare as a burnt offering according to the ordinance . So the priest shall make atonement on his behalf for his sin which he has committed , and it will be forgiven him. 11  'But if his means are insufficient for two turtledoves or two young pigeons , then for his offering for that which he has sinned , he shall bring the tenth of an ephah of fine flour for a sin offering ; he shall not put oil on it or place incense on it, for it is a sin offering . 12  'He shall bring it to the priest , and the priest shall take his handful e of it as its memorial portion and offer it up in smoke on the altar , with the offerings of the Lord by fire : it is a sin offering . 13  'So the priest shall make atonement for him concerning his sin which he has committed from one of these , and it will be forgiven him; then the rest shall become the priest's , like the grain offering .' "

Trespass Offerings

14  Then the Lord spoke to Moses , saying , 15  " If a person acts unfaithfully and sins unintentionally against the Lord'S holy things , then he shall bring his guilt offering to the Lord : a ram without defect from the flock , according to your valuation in silver by shekels , in terms of the shekel of the sanctuary , for a guilt offering . 16  " He shall make restitution for that which he has sinned against the holy thing , and shall add to it a fifth part of it and give it to the priest . The priest shall then make atonement for him with the ram of the guilt offering , and it will be forgiven him. 17  "Now if a person sins and does any of the things which the Lord has commanded not to be done , though he was unaware e , still he is guilty and shall bear his punishment . 18  "He is then to bring to the priest a ram without defect from the flock , according to your valuation , for a guilt offering . So the priest shall make atonement for him concerning his error in which he sinned unintentionally and did not know it, and it will be forgiven him. 19  "It is a guilt offering ; he was certainly guilty before the Lord ."
