Confession and Restitution(A)

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel: (B)‘When a man or woman commits any sin that men commit in unfaithfulness against the Lord, and that person is guilty, (C)then he shall confess the sin which he has committed. He shall make restitution for his trespass (D)in full, plus one-fifth of it, and give it to the one he has wronged. But if the man has no [a]relative to whom restitution may be made for the wrong, the restitution for the wrong must go to the Lord for the priest, in addition to (E)the ram of the atonement with which atonement is made for him. Every (F)offering[b] of all the holy things of the children of Israel, which they bring to the priest, shall be (G)his. 10 And every man’s [c]holy things shall be his; whatever any man gives the priest shall be (H)his.’ ”
