70 - THE SUSPENSIVE GUILT-OFFERING


Leviticus 5:17-18 -- 17 "If a person sins, and commits any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD, though he does not know it, yet he is guilty and shall bear his iniquity. 18 And he shall bring to the priest a ram without blemish from the flock, with your valuation, as a trespass offering. So the priest shall make atonement for him regarding his ignorance in which he erred and did not know it, and it shall be forgiven him.”

The wider application of this commandment may be gathered from the following episode mentioned in the Mishnah: “They told of Baba b. Buta that he offered of his own free will a Suspensive Guilt-offering every day save only the day after the Day of Atonement. He said, ‘By this Temple! Had they allowed me, I would have offered one even then, but they said to me, “Wait until you have come to a state of doubt”’”.*

* Ker. 25a
