Lev 5:1–13

5:1–13 It is debated whether this section belongs with what precedes (the sin offering, ch. 4) or with what follows (the guilt offering, 5:14–6:7). Because of the similarity of 4:1 and 5:14, and the occurrence of the Hebrew term for “sin offering” throughout 4:1–5:13, many argue that the description of the guilt offering begins at 5:14. Alternatively, the occurrence of the Hebrew word ’asham (meaning “guilt,” or “guilt offering”) in 5:6, 7 has led some to conclude that the discussion of the guilt offering begins in 5:1.
