Leviticus 5:19 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 5:19

It [is] a trespass [offering]
An offering for a trespass committed:

he hath certainly trespassed against the Lord;
though committed ignorantly, and therefore an offering must be brought; for no sin of any kind must be overlooked, passed by, or forgiven, without a sacrifice, or without atonement made by sacrifice: or, "he shall offer a trespass offering to the Lord", or before the Lord, as Onkelos; or before the Word of the Lord, as Jonathan; and Maimonides out of Siphri


F7 observes, that whereas it is said, a trespass or trespass offering to the Lord, it was not lawful for the priests to eat of it.

F7 Maimon. in Misn. Temurah, c. 7. sect. 6.

18 They are to bring to the priest as a guilt offering a ram from the flock, one without defect and of the proper value. In this way the priest will make atonement for them for the wrong they have committed unintentionally, and they will be forgiven.
19 It is a guilt offering; they have been guilty of wrongdoing against the LORD.”
