Study notes for Leviticus 5-7

Leviticus 5, Verses 1-6

Unintentional sins

  1. You saw a crime but didn’t offer yourself as a witness = you have sinned
  2. You touch a dead animal — it is unclean and you don’t realize you have = you have sinned
  3. You touch human uncleanness and you didn’t know it = you are guilty
  4. You impulsively swear or say an oath that you didn’t mean to make = you are guilty

Leviticus 5, Verses 7-13

Remedy (when guilty): Confess your sin — i.e., use an absolution-offering to get a clean slate

  • Lamb or two doves or two pigeons = absolution-offering (one bird); whole burnt offering (another bird)
  • If you can’t afford to offer animals, bring two quarts of fine flour for absolution-offering (priest burns a handful, then you are forgiven, the rest belongs to the priests)

Leviticus Chapter 5, Verses 14-19


  • Sin — i.e., you betray a trust or stray from any guides God gave = you have sinned
