The Law of Guilt Offerings

1 'Now if a person sins after he hears a apublic 1adjuration 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 bguilt. 2 'Or if a person touches 2any 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 3swears thoughtlessly with his lips to do evil or to do good, in whatever 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 4confess that in which he has sinned. 6 'He shall also bring his guilt offering to the LORD for his sin which he has ccommitted, 5a female from the flock, a lamb or a dgoat as a sin offering. So the priest shall make atonement on his behalf for his sin. 7 'But if ehe cannot afford 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, 6one 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 7shall not sever it. 9 'He shall also sprinkle some of the blood of the sin offering 8on the side of the altar, while the rest of the blood shall be drained out 9at the base of the altar : it is a sin offering. 10 'The second he shall then prepare as a burnt offering 10according to the ordinance. 11So the priest shall make atonement on his behalf for his sin which he has fcommitted, and it will be forgiven him. 11 'But 12if his gmeans 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 hephah of fine flour for a sin offering ; 13he 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 of it as its memorial portion and offer it up in smoke on the altar, iwith 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 jcommitted from 14one of these, and it will be forgiven him; then 15the rest shall become the priest's, like the grain offering.' " 14 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 15 "16If a person acts unfaithfully and sins 17unintentionally against the LORD'S holy things, then he shall bring his 18guilt offering to the LORD : 19a ram without defect from the flock, according to your valuation in silver by shekels, in terms of the 20shekel of the sanctuary, for a guilt offering. 16 "21He 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. 22The 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 kwhich the LORD has commanded not to be done, 23though he was unaware , still he is guilty and shall bear his punishment. 18 "He is then to bring to the priest 24a 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 25unintentionally and did not know it, and it will be forgiven him. 19 "It is a guilt offering ; he was certainly guilty before the LORD."
