G V S Sam

And YHWH spoke unto Moses, saying

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,

M S Sam

If any one sin, and commit a trespass against YHWH, and deal falsely with his neighbour in a matter of deposit, or of pledge, or of robbery, or have oppressed his neighbour;

The soul which shall have sinned, and willfully overlooked the commandments of the Lord, and shall have dealt falsely in the affairs of his neighbour in the matter of a deposit, or concerning fellowship, or concerning plunder, or has in anything wronged his neighbour,

M S Sam

or have found that which was lost, and deal falsely therein, and swear to a lie; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein;

or has found that which was lost, and shall have lied concerning it, and shall have sworn unjustly concerning any one of all the things, whatsoever a man may do, so as to sin hereby;

or who will have found a lost thing and then also withheld it by swearing falsely, or who will have done any other of the many things by which men usually sin

M Sam

then it shall be, if he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took by robbery, or the thing which he hath gotten by oppression, or the deposit which was deposited with him, or the lost thing which he found,

it shall come to pass, whensoever he shall have sinned, and transgressed, that he shall restore the plunder which he has seized, or redress the injury which he has committed, or restore the deposit which was entrusted to him, or the lost article which he has found of any kind, about which he swore unjustly, he shall even restore it in full; and he shall add to it a fifth part besides; he shall restore it to him whose it is in the day in which he happens to be convicted.

being convicted of the offense, he shall restore

M S Sam

all that he wanted to obtain by fraud, the whole plus an additional fifth part, to the owner against whom he brought the damage.

M G Sam

And he shall bring his forfeit unto YHWH, a ram without blemish out of the flock, according to thy valuation, for a guilt-offering, unto the priest.

Then, on behalf of his sin, he shall offer an immaculate ram from the flock, and he shall give it to the priest, according to the estimation and measure of the offense.

And he shall bring his trespass offering to the LORD, a ram of value without blemish out of the flocks for a trespass offering to the priest;
