Leviticus 6:1–11

Guilt Offering

1 1Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

2 aWhen a person sins and acts unfaithfully against the Lord, and deceives his companion in regard to a deposit or a security entrusted to him, or through robbery, or if he has extorted from his companion,

3 or ahas found what was lost and lied about it and sworn falsely, so that he sins in regard to any one of the things a man may do;

4 then it shall be, when he sins and becomes guilty, that he shall arestore what he took by robbery or what he got by extortion, or the deposit which was 1entrusted to him or the lost thing which he found,

5 or anything about which he swore falsely; ahe shall make restitution for it 1in full and add to it one-fifth more. bHe shall give it to the one to whom it belongs on the day he presents his guilt offering.

6 “Then he shall bring to the priest his guilt offering to the Lord, aa ram without defect from the flock, according to your valuation, for a guilt offering,

7 and athe priest shall make atonement for him before the Lord, and he will be forgiven for any one of the things which he may have done to incur guilt.”

The Priest’s Part in the Offerings

8 1Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

9 “Command Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is athe law for the burnt offering: the burnt offering itself shall remain on the hearth on the altar all night until the morning, and bthe fire on the altar is to be kept burning on it.

10 ‘The priest is to put on ahis linen robe, and he shall put on undergarments next to his flesh; and he shall take up the 1ashes to which the fire 2reduces the burnt offering on the altar and place them beside the altar.

11 ‘Then he shall take off his garments and put on other garments, and carry the 1ashes outside the camp to a clean place.
