Rules for Unintentional Offenses
15:22 21 “ ‘If you22 sin unintentionally and do not observe all these commandments that the Lord has spoken to Moses—15:23 all that the Lord has commanded you by the authority23 of Moses, from the day that the Lord commanded Moses and continuing through your future generations—15:24 then if anything is done unintentionally24 without the knowledge of25 the community, the whole community must prepare one young bull for a burnt offering—for a pleasing aroma to the Lord—along with its grain offering and its customary drink offering, and one male goat for a purification offering. 15:25 And the priest is to make atonement26 for the whole community of the Israelites, and they will be forgiven,27 because it was unintentional and they have brought their offering, an offering made by fire to the Lord, and their purification offering before the Lord, for their unintentional offense. 15:26 And the whole community28 of the Israelites and the resident foreigner who lives among them will be forgiven, since all the people were involved in the unintentional offense.
15:27 “ ‘If any person29 sins unintentionally, then he must bring a yearling female goat for a purification offering. 15:28 And the priest must make atonement for the person who sins unintentionally—when he sins unintentionally before the Lord—to make atonement for him, and he will be forgiven. 15:29 You must have one law for the person who sins unintentionally, both for the native-born among the Israelites and for the resident foreigner who lives among them.
