(A)‘If he is not able to bring a lamb, then he shall bring to the Lord, for his trespass which he has committed, two (B)turtledoves or two young pigeons: one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering. And he shall bring them to the priest, who shall offer that which is for the sin offering first, and (C)wring off its head from its neck, but shall not divide it [a]completely. Then he shall sprinkle some of the blood of the sin offering on the side of the altar, and the (D)rest of the blood shall be drained out at the base of the altar. It is a sin offering. 10 And he shall offer the second as a burnt offering according to the (E)prescribed manner. So (F)the priest shall make atonement on his behalf for his sin which he has committed, and it shall be forgiven him.

11 ‘But if he is (G)not able to bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons, then he who sinned shall bring for his offering one-tenth of an ephah of fine flour as a sin offering. (H)He shall put no oil on it, nor shall he put frankincense on it, for it is a sin offering. 12 Then he shall bring it to the priest, and the priest shall take his handful of it (I)as a memorial portion, and burn it on the altar (J)according to the offerings made by fire to the Lord. It is a sin offering.
