22 t‘If you sin unintentionally, and do not observe all these commandments which the Lord has spoken to Moses—23 all that the Lord has commanded you by the hand of Moses, from the day the Lord gave commandment and onward throughout your generations—24 then it will be, uif it is unintentionally committed, 4without the knowledge of the congregation, that the whole congregation shall offer one young bull as a burnt offering, as a sweet aroma to the Lord, vwith its grain offering and its drink offering, according to the ordinance, and wone kid of the goats as a sin offering. 25 xSo the priest shall make atonement for the whole congregation of the children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them, for it was unintentional; they shall bring their offering, an offering made by fire to the Lord, and their sin offering before the Lord, for their unintended sin. 26 It shall be forgiven the whole congregation of the children of Israel and the stranger who dwells among them, because all the people did it unintentionally.
27 ‘And yif a person sins unintentionally, then he shall bring a female goat in its first year as a sin offering. 28 zSo the priest shall make atonement for the person who sins unintentionally, when he sins unintentionally before the Lord, to make atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him. 29 aYou shall have one law for him who sins unintentionally, for him who is native-born among the children of Israel and for the stranger who dwells among them.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
