¶ When a soul hath sinned and heard the voice of cursing and is a witness: whether he hath seen or known of it if he have not uttered it, he shall bear his sin. Either when a man toucheth any unclean thing: whether it be the carrion of an unclean beast or of unclean cattle or unclean worm and is not ware of it, he is also unclean and hath offended. Either when he toucheth any uncleanness of man (whatsoever uncleanness it be that a man is defiled with all) and is not ware of it and afterward cometh to the knowledge of it, he is a trespasser. Either when a soul sweareth: so that he pronounceth with his lips to do evil or to do good (whatsoever it be that a man pronounceth with an oath) and the thing be out of his mind and afterward cometh to the knowledge of it, then he hath offended in one of these. Then when he hath sinned in one of these things, he shall confess that wherein that he hath sinned, and shall bring his trespassoffering unto the LORD for his sin which he hath sinned. A female from the flock, whether it be an ewe or a she goat, for a sinoffering. And the priest shall make an atonement for him for his sin.
¶ But if he be not able to bring a sheep, then let him bring for his trespass which he hath sinned, two turtle doves or two young pigeons unto the LORD, one for a sinoffering and another for a burntoffering. And he shall bring them unto the priest, which shall offer the sinoffering first and wring the neck asunder of it, but pluck it not clean off. And let him sprinkle of the blood of the sinoffering upon the side of the altar, and let the rest of the blood bleed upon the bottom of the altar, and then it is a sinoffering. And let him offer the second for a burntoffering as the manner is: and so shall the priest make an atonement for him for the sin which he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him. And yet if he be not able to bring two turtle doves or two young pigeons, then let him bring his offering for his sin: the tenth part of an Epha of fine flour for a sinoffering, but put none oil thereto neither put any frankincense thereon, for it is a sinoffering. And let him bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take his handful of it and burn it upon the altar for a remembrance to be a sacrifice for the LORD: that is a sinoffering. And let the priest make an atonement for him for his sin (whatsoever of these he hath sinned) and it shall be forgiven. And the remnant shall be the priest's, as it is in the meatoffering.
¶ And the LORD communed with Moses saying: when a soul trespasseth and sinneth thorow ignorance in any of the holy things of the LORD, he shall bring for his trespass unto the LORD, a ram without blemish out of the flock valued at two sicles after the holy sicle, for a trespassoffering. And he shall make amends for the harm that he hath done in the holy thing, and put the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto the priest. And the priest shall make an atonement for him with the ram of the trespassoffering, and it shall be forgiven him. When a soul sinneth and committeth any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD: though he wist it not, he hath yet offended and is in sin, and shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock that is esteemed to be worth a sinoffering, unto the priest. And the priest shall make an atonement for him for the ignorance which he did, and was not ware, and it shall be forgiven him. This is a trespassoffering, for he trespassed against the LORD.
