Numbers 5:1–10

On Defilement

1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

2 “Command the sons of Israel that they asend away from the camp every leper and everyone having a bdischarge and everyone who is cunclean because of a dead person.

3 “You shall send away both male and female; you shall send them outside the camp so that they will not defile their camp where I dwell ain their midst.”

4 The sons of Israel did so and sent them outside the camp; just as the Lord had spoken to Moses, thus the sons of Israel did.

5 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

6 “Speak to the sons of Israel, ‘aWhen a man or woman commits any of the sins of mankind, acting unfaithfully against the Lord, and that person is guilty,

7 then 1he shall aconfess 2his sins which 3he has committed, and he bshall make restitution in full for his wrong and add to it one-fifth of it, and give it to him whom he has wronged.

8 ‘But if the man has no 1relative to whom restitution may be made for the wrong, the restitution which is made for the wrong must go to the Lord for the priest, besides the ram of atonement, by which atonement is made for him.

9 aAlso every 1contribution pertaining to all the holy gifts of the sons of Israel, which they offer to the priest, shall be his.

10 ‘So every man’s holy gifts shall be his; whatever any man gives to the priest, it abecomes his.’ ”
