\\INTRODUCTION TO LEVITICUS 5\\

This chapter treats of the trespass offering, points at the sins for
which it was to be made, and the matter of it; it was for secret sins,
and sins of ignorance, such as refusing to bear witness in a known
case, \\#Le 5:1\\ touching unclean things and false swearing,
\\#Le 5:2-4\\ the things directed to in such cases are confession,
\\#Le 5:5\\ sacrifice of a lamb, or kid of the goats, \\#Le 5:6\\ and
in case of poverty, two turtle doves, or two young pigeons; concerning
the offering of which instructions are given, \\#Le 5:7-10\\ and if not
able to bring them, then a meat offering of fine flour, about which
rules are laid down, \\#Le 5:11-13\\ and for sins committed through
ignorance in holy things or sacrileges, the sacrifice of a ram is
enjoined, and satisfaction ordered to be made for the injury done in
the holy thing, by adding a fifth part to it, \\#Le 5:14-16\\ and for
sins committed ignorantly against negative precepts, only a ram is
appointed for the trespass offering, \\#Le 5:17-19\\.
