Bible: Leviticus 5:17-19

Unknown trespass

5:17If a person sins and violates any of the Lord’s commandments which must not be violated 1  (although he did not know it at the time, 2  but later realizes he is guilty), then he will bear his punishment for iniquity 3  5:18 and must bring a flawless ram from the flock, convertible into silver shekels, 4  for a guilt offering to the priest. So the priest will make atonement 5  on his behalf for his error which he committed 6  (although he himself had not known it) and he will be forgiven. 7  5:19 It is a guilt offering; he was surely guilty before the Lord.”
