Leviticus 5 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
1 "If anyone sins in that he hears a public 1adjuration to testify, and though he is a witness, whether he has seen or come to know the matter, yet does not speak, he shall 2bear his iniquity; 2 or 3if anyone touches an unclean thing, whether a carcass of an unclean wild animal or a carcass of unclean livestock or a carcass of unclean swarming things, and it is hidden from him and he has become unclean, and he realizes his guilt; 3 or if he touches 4human uncleanness, of whatever sort the uncleanness may be with which one becomes unclean, and it is hidden from him, when he comes to know it, and realizes his guilt; 4 or if anyone utters with his lips a 5rash oath to do evil or to do good, any sort of rash oath that people 6swear, and it is hidden from him, when he comes to know it, and he realizes his guilt in any of these; 5 when he realizes his guilt in any of these and 7confesses the sin he has committed, 6 he shall bring to the LORD as his compensationa for the sin that he has committed, a female from the flock, a lamb or a goat, for a sin offering. And the priest shall make atonement for him for his sin. 7 "But 8if he cannot afford a lamb, then he shall bring to the LORD as his compensation for the sin that he has committed two 9turtledoves or two pigeons,b one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. 8 He shall bring them to the priest, who shall offer first the one for the sin offering. He shall 10wring its head from its neck 11but shall not sever it completely, 9 and he shall sprinkle some of the blood of the sin offering on the side of the altar, while 12the rest of the blood shall be drained out 13at the base of the altar; it is a sin offering. 10 Then he shall offer the second for a burnt offering according to the rule. 14And the priest shall make atonement for him for the sin that he has committed, and he shall be forgiven. 11 "But if he cannot afford two turtledoves or two pigeons, then he shall bring as his offering for the sin that he has committed a 15tenth of an ephahc of fine flour for a sin offering. He 16shall put no oil on it and shall put no frankincense on it, for it is a sin offering. 12 And he shall bring it to 17the priest, and the priest shall take a handful of it as its memorial portion and 18burn this on the altar, on the LORD's food offerings; it is a sin offering. 13 Thus 19the priest shall make atonement for him for the sin which he has committed in any one of these things, and he shall be forgiven. And the remainderd shall be for the priest, as in the grain offering."

Laws for Guilt Offerings

14 The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 15 20"If anyone commits a breach of faith and sins unintentionally in any of the holy things of the LORD, 21he shall bring to the LORD as his compensation, a ram without blemish out of the flock, valuede in silver shekels,f according to the 22shekel of the sanctuary, for a guilt offering. 16 He shall also make restitution for what he has done amiss in the holy thing and 23shall add a fifth to it and give it to the priest. 24And the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the guilt offering, and he shall be forgiven. 17 25"If anyone sins, doing any of the things that by the LORD's commandments ought not to be done, 26though he did not know it, then realizes his guilt, he shall bear his iniquity. 18 27He shall bring to the priest a ram without blemish out of the flock, or its equivalent for a guilt offering, and 28the priest shall make atonement for him for the mistake that he made unintentionally, and he shall be forgiven. 19 It is a guilt offering; he has indeed incurred guilt beforeg the LORD."
