Leviticus 5

Leviticus 5
Public Sin and Testimony
**If anyone sins because they do not speak up when they hear a public charge to testify regarding something they have seen or learned about, they will be held responsible.
‘If anyone becomes aware that they are guilty—by touching an unclean creature, or touching the uncleanness of a human, or takes an oath or swears even though unaware of it–is guilty and must confess their sin. A penalty of a female lamb or goat from the flock as a sin offering must be brought to the priest as atonement for their sins.
**‘Anyone who cannot afford a lamb is to bring two doves or two young pigeons to the Lord as a penalty for their sin—one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering as prepared by the Lord’s instructions as atonement for their sins and they will be forgiven.
**‘If, however, they cannot afford two doves or two young pigeons, they are to bring as an offering for their sin a tenth of an ephah of the finest flour for a sin offering. The priest is to prepare it according to the Lord’s instructions. The sin offering is for the atonement of their sins and they will be forgiven. The rest of the offering is a grain offering for the priest to keep.
The Guilt Offering
** The Lord said to Moses: “When anyone is unfaithful to the Lord by sinning unintentionally in regard to any of the Lord’s holy things, they are to bring a ram without defect as an offering for their sin and according to the value of the shekel as a guilt offering. They must make restitution to pay an additional penalty of a fifth of its value and give it all to the priest. Their sin will be forgiven.
**If anyone sins and does what is forbidden in any of the Lord’s commands, even though they do not know it, they are guilty and will be held responsible. They must bring a ram without defect and proper value to the priest as a guilt offering as atonement for their sins. They will be forgiven. It is a guilt offering; they have been guilty of wrongdoing against the Lord.” credit to biblegateway.com and doodlethroughthebible.com.
