Note: at the end of today’s Portion of Bible Text, you will find my thoughts on the verses. B.K
5 And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity.
2 Or if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether it be a carcase of an unclean beast, or a carcase of unclean cattle, or the carcase of unclean creeping things, and if it be hidden from him; he also shall be unclean, and guilty.
3 Or if he touch the uncleanness of man, whatsoever uncleanness it be that a man shall be defiled withal, and it be hid from him; when he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty.
4 Or if a soul 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.
5 And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these things, that he shall confess that he hath sinned in that thing:
K.J.V. Bible Text
The first four verses of Leviticus 5 describe some modes of sinning.
Verse 1—If a soul knows of a sin or sees one and is sworn as a witness he must tell of it or bear iniquity.
Verse 2—Touching an unclean thing (even if it is hidden from he who touches it) such as an unclean carcass or the carcass of a creeping thing makes one unclean and guilty.
Verse 3—Touching the uncleaness of man leaves one guilty of sin.
Verse 4—Swearing—either to do evil or to do good—with an oath is a sin.
In verse 5 we learn that those who commit the sins of the first 4 verses are to confess.
