Leviticus Chapter 5

Leviticus 5:1
5:1 And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and [is]
    a witness, whether he hath seen or {a} known [of it]; if he
    do not utter [it], then he shall bear his iniquity.

    (a) By which it is commanded to bear witness to the truth,
        and disclose the iniquity of the ungodly.

Leviticus 5:4
5:4 Or if a soul {b} swear, pronouncing with [his] lips to do
    evil, or to do good, whatsoever [it be] that a man shall
    pronounce with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he
    knoweth [of it], then he shall be guilty in one of these.

    (b) Or, vow rashly without just examination of the
        circumstances, and not knowing what shall be the issue
        of the same.

Leviticus 5:5
5:5 And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these {c}
    [things], that he shall confess that he hath sinned in that
    [thing]:

    (c) Which have been mentioned before in this chapter.

Leviticus 5:10
5:10 And he shall offer the second [for] a burnt offering,
     according to the manner: and the priest shall {d} make an
     atonement for him for his sin which he hath sinned, and it
     shall be forgiven him.

     (d) Or, declare him to be purged of that sin.

Leviticus 5:11
5:11 But if he be not abLe to bring two turtledoves, or two
     young pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his
     offering the tenth part of an {e} ephah of fine flour for a
     sin offering; he shall put no {f} oil upon it, neither
     shall he put [any] frankincense thereon: for it [is] a sin
     offering.

     (e) Which was about a half gallon.
     (f) As in the meat offering, Leviticus 2:1.

Leviticus 5:15
5:15 If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, {g}
     in the holy things of the LORD; then he shall bring for his
     trespass unto the LORD a ram without blemish out of the
     flocks, {h} with thy estimation by shekels of silver, after
     the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering:

     (g) Concerning the first fruits or tithes, due to the
         priests and Levites.
     (h) By the estimation of the priest, Leviticus 27:12.

Leviticus 5:17
5:17 And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are
     forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD;
     though he wist [it] not, yet is he guilty, and shall {i}
     bear his iniquity.

     (i) That is, remembers after that he has sinned when his
         conscience accuses him.

Leviticus 5:18
5:18 And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock,
     with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the
     priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him
     concerning his {k} ignorance wherein he erred and wist [it]
     not, and it shall be forgiven him.

     (k) Else if his sin against God come of malice, he must
         die; Numbers 15:30.
