On the ash heap it shall be burned up. 

Lev. 4:13   h“If the whole congregation of Israel sins unintentionally* and ithe thing is hidden from the eyes of the assembly, and they do any one of the things that by the Lord’s commandments ought not to be done, and they realize their guilt,* 14 jwhen the sin which they have committed becomes known, the assembly shall offer a bull from the herd for a sin offering and bring it in front of the tent of meeting.  15 And the elders of the congregation kshall lay their hands on the head of the bull before the Lord, and the bull shall be killed before the Lord.  16 Then lthe anointed priest shall bring some of the blood of the bull into the tent of meeting,  17 and the priest shall dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle it seven times before the Lord in front of the veil.  18 And he shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar that is in the tent of meeting before the Lord, and the rest of the blood he shall pour out at the base of the altar of burnt offering that is at the entrance of the tent of meeting.  19 And all its fat he shall take from it and burn on the altar.  20 Thus shall he do with the bull. As he did mwith the bull of the sin offering, so shall he do with this. nAnd the priest shall make atonement for them, and they shall be forgiven.  21 And he shall carry the bull foutside the camp and burn it up as he burned the first bull; it is the sin offering for the assembly. 

Lev. 4:22   “When a leader sins, odoing unintentionally any one of all the things that by the commandments of the Lord his God ought not to be done, and realizes his guilt,  23 or pthe sin which he has committed is made known to him, he shall bring as his offering a goat, a male without blemish,  24 and qshall lay his hand on the head of the goat and kill it in the place where they kill the burnt offering before the Lord; it is a sin offering.  25 rThen the priest shall take some of the blood of the sin offering with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering and pour out the rest of its blood at the base of the altar of burnt offering.  26 And all its fat he shall burn on the altar, like sthe fat of the sacrifice of peace offerings. So tthe priest shall make atonement for him for his sin, and he shall be forgiven. 

Lev. 4:27   “If uanyone of the common people sins unintentionally in doing any one of the things that by the Lord’s commandments ought not to be done, and realizes his guilt,  28 vor the sin which he has committed is made known to him, he shall bring for his offering a goat, a female without blemish, for his sin which he has committed.  29 wAnd he shall lay his hand on the head of the sin offering and kill the sin offering in the place of burnt offering.  30 And the priest shall take some of its blood with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar of burnt offering and pour out all the rest of its blood at the base of the altar.  31 And xall its fat he shall remove, yas the fat is removed from the peace offerings, and the priest shall burn it on the altar for a zpleasing aroma to the Lord. aAnd the priest shall make atonement for him, and he shall be forgiven.

Lev. 5:1   “If anyone sins in that he hears a public eadjuration to testify, and though he is a witness, whether he has seen or come to know the matter, yet does not speak, he shall fbear his iniquity;  2 or gif anyone touches an unclean thing, whether a carcass of an unclean wild animal or a carcass of unclean livestock or a carcass of unclean swarming things, and it is hidden from him and he has become unclean, and he realizes his guilt;  3 or if he touches hhuman uncleanness, of whatever sort the uncleanness may be with which one becomes unclean, and it is hidden from him, when he comes to know it, and realizes his guilt;  4 or if anyone utters with his lips a irash oath to do evil or to do good, any sort of rash oath that people jswear, and it is hidden from him, when he comes to know it, and he realizes his guilt in any of these;  5 when he realizes his guilt in any of these and kconfesses the sin he has committed,  6 he shall bring to the Lord as his compensation* for the sin that he has committed, a female from the flock, a lamb or a goat, for a sin offering. And the priest shall make atonement for him for his sin. 

Lev. 5:7   “But lif he cannot afford a lamb, then he shall bring to the Lord as his compensation for the sin that he has committed two mturtledoves or two pigeons,* one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering.  8 He shall bring them to the priest, who shall offer first the one for the sin offering. He shall nwring its head from its neck nbut shall not sever it completely,  9 and he shall sprinkle some of the blood of the sin offering on the side of the altar, while othe rest of the blood shall be drained out pat the base of the altar; it is a sin offering.  10 Then he shall offer the second for a burnt offering according to the rule. qAnd the priest shall make atonement for him for the sin that he has committed, and he shall be forgiven. 

Lev. 5:11   “But if he cannot afford two turtledoves or two pigeons, then he shall bring as his offering for the sin that he has committed a rtenth of an ephah* of fine flour for a sin offering. He rshall put no oil on it and shall put no frankincense on it, for it is a sin offering.  12 And he shall bring it to sthe priest, and the priest shall take a handful of it as its memorial portion and tburn this on the altar, on the Lord’s food offerings; it is a sin offering.  13 Thus qthe priest shall make atonement for him for the sin which he has committed in any one of these things, and he shall be forgiven. And the remainder* shall be for the priest, as in the grain offering.” 

Lev. 5:14   The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,  15 u“If anyone commits a breach of faith and sins unintentionally in any of the holy things of the Lord, vhe shall bring to the Lord as his compensation, a ram without blemish out of the flock, valued* in silver shekels,* according to the wshekel of the sanctuary, for a guilt offering.  16 He shall also make restitution for what he has done amiss in the holy thing and xshall add a fifth to it and give it to the priest. qAnd the priest shall make atonement for him with the ram of the guilt offering, and he shall be forgiven. 

Lev. 5:17   y“If anyone sins, doing any of the things that by the Lord’s commandments ought not to be done, zthough he did not know it, then realizes his guilt, he shall bear his iniquity.  18 aHe shall bring to the priest a ram without blemish out of the flock, or its equivalent for a guilt offering, and qthe priest shall make atonement for him for the mistake that he made unintentionally, and he shall be forgiven.  19 It is a guilt offering; he has indeed incurred guilt before* the Lord.” 

Mark 2:13   He went out again beside the sea, and dall the crowd was coming to him, and he was teaching them.  14 eAnd as he passed by, he saw fLevi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he rose and followed him. 

Mark 2:15   And as he reclined at table in his house, many gtax collectors and sinners were reclining with Jesus and his disciples, for there were many who followed him.  16 And hthe scribes of* the Pharisees, when they saw that he was eating with sinners and tax collectors, said to his disciples, g“Why does he eat* with tax collectors and sinners?”  17 And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. iI came not to call the righteous, jbut sinners.”

Mark 2:18   Now kJohn’s disciples and the Pharisees were fasting. And people came and said to him, l“Why do John’s disciples and mthe disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?”  19 And Jesus said to them, n“Can the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. 20 oThe days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and pthen they will fast in that day. 21 No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. If he does, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear is made. 22 And no one puts new wine into old qwineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins—and the wine is destroyed, and so are the skins. But new wine is for fresh wineskins.”*

Mark 2:23   rOne Sabbath he was going through the grainfields, and as they made their way, his disciples sbegan to pluck heads of grain.  24 And the Pharisees were saying to him, “Look, twhy are they doing uwhat is not lawful on the Sabbath?”  25 And he said to them, v“Have you never read wwhat David did, when he was in need and was hungry, he and those who were with him: 26 how he entered the house of God, in the time of* xAbiathar the high priest, and ate ythe bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to those who were with him?” 27 And he said to them, z“The Sabbath was made for man, anot man for the Sabbath. 28 So bthe Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath.”

Mark 3:1   cAgain dhe entered the synagogue, and a man was there with a withered hand.  2 And ethey watched Jesus,* to see whether he would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse him.  3 And he said to the man with the withered hand, “Come here.” 4 And he said to them, f“Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to kill?” But they were silent.  5 And he glooked around at them with anger, grieved at htheir hardness of heart, and said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” iHe stretched it out, and his hand was restored.  6 jThe Pharisees went out and immediately jheld counsel with kthe Herodians against him, how to destroy him. 

Psa. 36:1    Transgression speaks to the wicked

deep in his heart;*

ythere is no fear of God

before his eyes. 

2 zFor he flatters himself in his own eyes

that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated. 

3 The words of his mouth are atrouble and deceit;

bhe has ceased to act wisely and do good. 

4 He cplots dtrouble while on his bed;

he sets himself in ea way that is not good;

fhe does not reject evil. 

Psa. 36:5    Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens,

your faithfulness to the clouds. 

6 gYour righteousness is like the mountains of God;

hyour judgments are like the great deep;

man and beast you isave, O Lord. 

Psa. 36:7    jHow precious is your steadfast love, O God!

The children of mankind take refuge kin the shadow of your wings. 

8 They feast on lthe abundance of your house,

and you give them drink from mthe river of nyour delights. 

9 For with you is othe fountain of life;

pin your light do we see light. 

Psa. 36:10    Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who qknow you,

and your righteousness to rthe upright of heart! 

11 Let not the foot of arrogance come upon me,

nor the hand of the wicked drive me away. 

12 There sthe evildoers lie fallen;

they are thrust down, tunable to rise. 

Prov. 10:1   cThe proverbs of Solomon.

dA wise son makes a glad father,

ebut a foolish son is a sorrow to his mother. 

2 fTreasures gained by wickedness do not profit,

gbut righteousness delivers from death.
