5:16 And whatever holy thing he violated 1 he must restore and must add one fifth to it and give it to the priest. So the priest will make atonement 2 on his behalf with the guilt offering ram and he will be forgiven.” 3
6:5 or anything about which he swears falsely. 4 He must restore it in full 5 and add one fifth to it; he must give it to its owner when he is found guilty. 6
1 tn Heb “and which he sinned from the holy thing.”
3 tn Heb “there shall be forgiveness to him” or “it shall be forgiven to him” (KJV similar).
4 tn Heb “or from all which he swears on it to falsehood.”
5 tn Heb “in its head.” This refers “the full amount” in terms of the “principal,” the original item or amount obtained illegally (J. Milgrom, Leviticus [AB], 1:338; J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 84).
6 tn Heb “to whom it is to him he shall give it in the day of his being guilty.” The present translation is based on the view that he has been found guilty through the legal process (see the note on v. 4 above; cf., e.g., TEV and B. A. Levine, Leviticus [JPSTC], 33-34). Others translate the latter part as “in the day he offers his guilt [reparation] offering” (e.g., NIV and J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 73, 84), or “in the day he realizes his guilt” (e.g., NRSV and J. Milgrom, Leviticus [AB], 1:319, 338).
