Bible: Numbers 15:22-26


Rules for Unintentional Offenses


“‘If you 2  sin unintentionally and do not observe all these commandments that the Lord has spoken to Moses 15:23 all that the Lord has commanded you by the authority 3  of Moses, from the day that the Lord commanded Moses and continuing through your future generations 15:24 then if anything is done unintentionally 4  without the knowledge of 5  the community, the whole community must prepare one young bull for a burnt offering – for a pleasing aroma to the Lordalong with its grain offering and its customary drink offering, and one male goat for a purification offering. 15:25 And the priest is to make atonement 6  for the whole community of the Israelites, and they will be forgiven, 7  because it was unintentional and they have brought their offering, an offering made by fire to the Lord, and their purification offering before the Lord, for their unintentional offense. 15:26 And the whole community 8  of the Israelites and the resident foreigner who lives among them will be forgiven, since all the people were involved in the unintentional offense.
