Numbers 15:27-31

27 An individual who sins unintentionally shall present a female goat a year old for a sin offering.
28 And the priest shall make atonement before the Lord for the one who commits an error, when it is unintentional, to make atonement for the person, who then shall be forgiven.
29 For both the native among the Israelites and the alien residing among them—you shall have the same law for anyone who acts in error.
30 But whoever acts high-handedly, whether a native or an alien, affronts the Lord, and shall be cut off from among the people.
31 Because of having despised the word of the Lord and broken his commandment, such a person shall be utterly cut off and bear the guilt.
