The Trespass Offering

5 ‘If a person sins in ahearing the utterance of an oath, and is a witness, whether he has seen or known of the matter—if he does not tell it, he bbears 1guilt.

‘Or cif a person touches any unclean thing, whether it is the carcass of an unclean beast, or the carcass of unclean livestock, or the carcass of unclean creeping things, and he is unaware of it, he also shall be unclean and dguilty. Or if he touches ehuman uncleanness—whatever uncleanness with which a man may be defiled, and he is unaware of it—when he realizes it, then he shall be guilty.

‘Or if a person 2swears, speaking thoughtlessly with his lips fto do evil or gto do good, whatever it is that a man may pronounce by an oath, and he is unaware of it—when he realizes it, then he shall be guilty in any of these matters.

‘And it shall be, when he is guilty in any of these matters, that he shall hconfess that he has sinned in that thing; and he shall bring his trespass offering to the Lord for his sin which he has committed, a female from the flock, a lamb or a kid of the goats as a sin offering. So the priest shall make atonement for him concerning his sin.

i‘If he is not able to bring a lamb, then he shall bring to the Lord, for his trespass which he has committed, two jturtledoves or two young pigeons: one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering. And he shall bring them to the priest, who shall offer that which is for the sin offering first, and kwring off its head from its neck, but shall not divide it 3completely. Then he shall sprinkle some of the blood of the sin offering on the side of the altar, and the lrest of the blood shall be drained out at the base of the altar. It is a sin offering. 10 And he shall offer the second as a burnt offering according to the mprescribed manner. So nthe priest shall make atonement on his behalf for his sin which he has committed, and it shall be forgiven him.

11 ‘But if he is onot able to bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons, then he who sinned shall bring for his offering one-tenth of an ephah of fine flour as a sin offering. pHe shall put no oil on it, nor shall he put frankincense on it, for it is a sin offering. 12 Then he shall bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take his handful of it qas a memorial portion, and burn it on the altar raccording to the offerings made by fire to the Lord. It is a sin offering. 13 sThe priest shall make atonement for him, 4for his sin that he has committed in any of these matters; and it shall be forgiven him. tThe rest shall be the priest’s as a grain offering.’ ”

Offerings with Restitution

14 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 15 u“If a person commits a trespass, and sins unintentionally in regard to the holy things of the Lord, then vhe shall bring to the Lord as his trespass offering a ram without blemish from the flocks, with your valuation in shekels of silver according to wthe shekel of the sanctuary, as a trespass offering. 16 And he shall make restitution for the harm that he has done in regard to the holy thing, xand shall add one-fifth to it and give it to the priest. ySo the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.

17 “If a person sins, and commits any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the Lord, zthough he does not know it, yet he is aguilty and shall bear his 5iniquity. 18 bAnd he shall bring to the priest a ram without blemish from the flock, with your valuation, as a trespass offering. So the priest shall make atonement for him regarding his ignorance in which he erred and did not know it, and it shall be forgiven him. 19 It is a trespass offering; che has certainly trespassed against the Lord.”

6 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “If a person sins and acommits a trespass against the Lord by blying 1to his neighbor about cwhat was delivered to him for safekeeping, or about 2a pledge, or about a robbery, or if he has dextorted from his neighbor, or if he ehas found what was lost and lies concerning it, and fswears falsely—in any one of these things that a man may do in which he sins: then it shall be, because he has sinned and is guilty, that he shall 3restore gwhat he has stolen, or the thing which he has extorted, or what was delivered to him for safekeeping, or the lost thing which he found, or all that about which he has sworn falsely. He shall hrestore its full value, add one-fifth more to it, and give it to whomever it belongs, on the day of his trespass offering. And he shall bring his trespass offering to the Lord, ia ram without blemish from the flock, with your 4valuation, as a trespass offering, to the priest. jSo the priest shall make atonement for him before the Lord, and he shall be forgiven for any one of these things that he may have done in which he trespasses.”

The Law of the Burnt Offering

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Command Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the klaw of the burnt offering: The burnt offering shall be on the hearth upon the altar all night until morning, and the fire of the altar shall be kept burning on it. 10 lAnd the priest shall put on his linen garment, and his linen trousers he shall put on his body, and take up the ashes of the burnt offering which the fire has consumed on the altar, and he shall put them mbeside the altar. 11 Then nhe shall take off his garments, put on other garments, and carry the ashes outside the camp oto a clean place. 12 And the fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it; it shall not be put out. And the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order on it; and he shall burn on it pthe fat of the peace offerings. 13 A fire shall always be burning on the qaltar; it shall never go out.

The Law of the Grain Offering

14 ‘This is the law of the grain offering: The sons of Aaron shall offer it on the altar before the Lord. 15 He shall take from it his handful of the fine flour of the grain offering, with its oil, and all the frankincense which is on the grain offering, and shall burn it on the altar for a sweet aroma, as a memorial to the Lord. 16 And the remainder of it Aaron and his sons shall eat; with unleavened bread it shall be eaten in a holy place; in the court of the tabernacle of meeting they shall eat it. 17 It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it as their 5portion of My offerings made by fire; it is most holy, like the sin offering and the rtrespass offering. 18 sAll the males among the children of Aaron may eat it. tIt shall be a statute forever in your generations concerning the offerings made by fire to the Lord. uEveryone who touches them must be holy.’ ”

19 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 20 v“This is the offering of Aaron and his sons, which they shall offer to the Lord, beginning on the day when he is anointed: one-tenth of an wephah of fine flour as a daily grain offering, half of it in the morning and half of it at night. 21 It shall be made in a xpan with oil. When it is mixed, you shall bring it in. The baked pieces of the grain offering you shall offer for a 6sweet aroma to the Lord. 22 The priest from among his sons, ywho is anointed in his place, shall offer it. It is a statute forever to the Lord. zIt shall be 7wholly burned. 23 For every grain offering for the priest shall be wholly burned. It shall not be eaten.”

The Law of the Sin Offering

24 Also the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 25 “Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, ‘This is the law of the sin offering: aIn the place where the burnt offering is killed, the sin offering shall be killed before the Lord. It is most holy. 26 bThe priest who offers it for sin shall eat it. In a holy place it shall be eaten, in the court of the tabernacle of meeting. 27 cEveryone who touches its flesh 8must be holy. And when its blood is sprinkled on any garment, you shall wash that on which it was sprinkled, in a holy place. 28 But the earthen vessel in which it is boiled dshall be broken. And if it is boiled in a bronze pot, it shall be both scoured and rinsed in water. 29 All the males among the priests may eat it. It is most holy. 30 eBut no sin offering from which any of the blood is brought into the tabernacle of meeting, to make atonement in 9the holy fplace, shall be geaten. It shall be hburned in the fire.

The Law of the Trespass Offering

7 ‘Likewise athis is the law of the trespass offering (it is most holy): In the place where they kill the burnt offering they shall kill the trespass offering. And its blood he shall sprinkle all around on the altar. And he shall offer from it all its fat. The fat tail and the fat that covers the entrails, the two kidneys and the fat that is on them by the flanks, and the fatty lobe attached to the liver above the kidneys, he shall remove; and the priest shall burn them on the altar as an offering made by fire to the Lord. It is a trespass offering. bEvery male among the priests may eat it. It shall be eaten in a holy place. cIt is most holy. dThe trespass offering is like the sin offering; there is one law for them both: the priest who makes atonement with it shall have it. And the priest who offers anyone’s burnt offering, that priest shall have for himself the skin of the burnt offering which he has offered. Also eevery grain offering that is baked in the oven and all that is prepared in the covered pan, or 1in a pan, shall be the priest’s who offers it. 10 Every grain offering, whether mixed with oil or dry, shall belong to all the sons of Aaron, to one as much as the other.

The Law of Peace Offerings

11 f‘This is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings which he shall offer to the Lord: 12 If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer, with the sacrifice of thanksgiving, unleavened cakes mixed with oil, unleavened wafers ganointed with oil, or cakes of blended flour mixed with oil. 13 Besides the cakes, as his offering he shall offer
