February 17th, Leviticus 5-7: The guilt offering

Leviticus 5 deals with what happens if someone happens to be too poor for the prescribed offering. This is true even if he doesn’t know the law.

Leviticus 5:17 says,
17 “If a person sins and does what is forbidden in any of the LORD’s commands, even though he does not know it, he is guilty and will be held responsible.

Leviticus 6 deals with the regulations of the burnt, grain, and sin offerings.

Leviticus 7 details the guilt offering, which is the most holy. The guilt offering was to be slaughtered in the same place as the burnt offering. It goes on to detail the regulations for the fellowship offering, including those of the freewill variety. Again, the LORD tells Moses that the Israelites must not eat any of the fat of cattle, sheep or goats. They were also not to eat any of the blood of any bird or animal.
