11 “But if he cannot afford two turtledoves or two pigeons, then he shall bring as his offering for the sin that he has committed a (A)tenth of an ephah[a] of fine flour for a sin offering. He (B)shall put no oil on it and shall put no frankincense on it, for it is a sin offering. 12 And he shall bring it to (C)the priest, and the priest shall take a handful of it as its memorial portion and (D)burn this on the altar, on the Lord's food offerings; it is a sin offering. 13 Thus (E)the priest shall make atonement for him for the sin which he has committed in any one of these things, and he shall be forgiven. And the remainder[b] shall be for the priest, as in the grain offering.”

Laws for Guilt Offerings

14 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 15 (F)“If anyone commits a breach of faith and sins unintentionally in any of the holy things of the Lord, (G)he shall bring to the Lord as his compensation, a ram without blemish out of the flock, valued[c] in silver shekels,[d] according to the (H)shekel of the sanctuary, for a guilt offering. 16 He shall also make restitution for what he has done amiss in the holy thing and (I)shall add a fifth to it and give it to the priest. (J)And the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the guilt offering, and he shall be forgiven.

17 (K)“If anyone sins, doing any of the things that by the Lord's commandments ought not to be done, (L)though he did not know it, then realizes his guilt, he shall bear his iniquity. 18 (M)He shall bring to the priest a ram without blemish out of the flock, or its equivalent, for a guilt offering, and (N)the priest shall make atonement for him for the mistake that he made unintentionally, and he shall be forgiven. 19 It is a guilt offering; he has indeed incurred guilt before[e] the Lord.”

[f] The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “If anyone sins and (O)commits a breach of faith against the Lord by (P)deceiving his neighbor in (Q)a matter of deposit or security, or through robbery, or (R)if he has oppressed his neighbor or (S)has found something lost and lied about it, (T)swearing falsely—in any of all the things that people do and sin thereby— if he has sinned and has realized his guilt and will restore (U)what he took by robbery or what he got by oppression or the deposit that was committed to him or the lost thing that he found or anything about which he has sworn falsely, he shall (V)restore it in full and shall add a fifth to it, and give it to him to whom it belongs on the day he realizes his guilt. And he shall bring to the priest as his compensation to the Lord (W)a ram without blemish out of the flock, or its equivalent, for a guilt offering. (X)And the priest shall make atonement for him before the Lord, and he shall be forgiven for any of the things that one may do and thereby become guilty.”
