5:1 And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and [is] a witness, whether he hath seen or a known [of it]; if he do not utter [it], then he shall bear his iniquity.

    (a) By which it is commanded to bear witness to the truth, and disclose the iniquity of the ungodly.
5:4 Or if a soul b swear, pronouncing with [his] lips to do evil, or to do good, whatsoever [it be] that a man shall pronounce with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he knoweth [of it], then he shall be guilty in one of these.
    (b) Or, vow rashly without just examination of the circumstances, and not knowing what shall be the issue of the same.
5:5 And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these c [things], that he shall confess that he hath sinned in that [thing]:
    (c) Which have been mentioned before in this chapter.
5:10 And he shall offer the second [for] a burnt offering, according to the manner: and the priest shall d make an atonement for him for his sin which he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.
    (d) Or, declare him to be purged of that sin.
5:11 But if he be not able to bring two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth part of an e ephah of fine flour for a sin offering; he shall put no f oil upon it, neither shall he put [any] frankincense thereon: for it [is] a sin offering.
    (e) Which was about a half gallon.
    (f) As in the meat offering, (Le 2:1).
5:15 If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, g in the holy things of the LORD; then he shall bring for his trespass unto the LORD a ram without blemish out of the flocks, h with thy estimation by shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering:
    (g) Concerning the first fruits or tithes, due to the priests and Levites.
    (h) By the estimation of the priest, (Le 27:12).

5:17 And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD; though he wist [it] not, yet is he guilty, and shall i bear his iniquity.

    (i) That is, remembers after that he has sinned when his conscience accuses him.
5:18 And he shall bring a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his k ignorance wherein he erred and wist [it] not, and it shall be forgiven him.
    (k) Else if his sin against God come of malice, he must die; (Nu 15:30).
