5:1 And if a soul shall sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and
be a witness, whether he hath seen or known [of it]; if he doth
not utter [it], then he shall bear his iniquity.
5:2 Or if a soul shall touch any unclean thing, whether a
carcass of an unclean beast, or a carcass of unclean cattle, or
the carcass of unclean creeping animals, and it shall be hidden
from him; he also shall be unclean, and guilty.
5:3 Or if he shall touch the uncleanness of man, whatever
uncleanness [it may be] that a man shall be defiled with, and
it be hid from him; when he knoweth [of it], then he shall be
5:4 Or if a soul shall swear, pronouncing with [his] lips to do
evil, or to do good, whatever [it may be], that a man shall
pronounce with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he knoweth
[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 hath sinned in that
5:6 And he shall bring his trespass-offering to the LORD for his
sin which he hath 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.
5:7 And if he shall not be able to bring a lamb, then he shall
bring for his trespass which he hath committed, two
turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, to the LORD; one for a
sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering.
5:8 And he shall bring them to the priest, who shall offer
[that] which [is] for the sin-offering first, and wring off his
head from his neck, but shall not divide [it] asunder:
5:9 And he shall sprinkle of the blood of the sin-offering upon
the side of the altar; and the rest of the blood shall be wrung
out at the bottom of the altar: it [is] a sin-offering.
5:10 And he shall offer the second [for] a burnt-offering,
according to the manner: and the priest shall make an atonement
for him for his sin which he hath sinned, and it shall be
5:11 But if he shall not be able to bring two turtle-doves, 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 upon it: 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 of it, 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
concerning his sin that he hath sinned in one of these, and it
shall be forgiven him: and [the remnant] shall be the priest's,
as a meat-offering.
5:14 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
5:15 If a soul shall 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 thy 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 hath done in
the holy thing, and shall add to it the fifth part, 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
5:17 And if a soul shall sin, and commit any of these things
which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD;
though he knew [it] not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his
5:18 And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock,
with thy estimation, for a trespass-offering to the priest; and
the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his
ignorance wherein he erred and knew [it] not, and it shall be
5:19 It [is] a trespass-offering: he hath certainly trespassed
against the LORD.
