On Restitution for Offenses

The Lord told Moses, “Instruct the Israelis that whenever a man or woman does something contained in the list[a] of the sins of man, thereby acting treacherously against the Lord, then that person stands guilty. He[b] is to confess the sin that he had committed, pay its full compensation, add one fifth to it, and give the compensation to whomever he offended.
