Numbers 15:17-31New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,18 “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you enter the land where I am bringing you,19 then it shall be, that when you eat from the [a]food of the land, you shall lift up an [b]offering to the Lord.20 Of the first of your [c]dough you shall lift up a loaf as an [d]offering; as an [e]offering of the threshing floor, so you shall lift it up.21 From the first of your [f]dough you shall give to the Lord an [g]offering throughout your generations.
22 ‘But when you unintentionally do wrong and fail to [h]comply with all these commandments which the Lord has spoken to Moses,23 that is, all that the Lord has commanded you [i]through Moses from the day that the Lord gave commandments and onward, throughout your generations,24 then it shall be, if it is done unintentionally, [j]without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one bull as a burnt offering, as a soothing aroma to the Lord, with its grain offering and its drink offering, according to the ordinance, and one male goat as a sin offering.25 Then the priest shall make atonement for all the congregation of the sons of Israel, and they will be forgiven; for it was an unintentional wrong, and they have brought their offering, an offering by fire to the Lord, and their sin offering before the Lord, for their unintentional wrong.26 So all the congregation of the sons of Israel will be forgiven, as well as the stranger who resides among them, for guilt was attributed to all the people through an unintentional wrong.
27 ‘Also, if one person sins unintentionally, then he shall offer a one-year-old female goat as a sin offering.28 And the priest shall make atonement before the Lord for the person who goes astray by an unintentional sin, making atonement for him [k]so that he may be forgiven.29 You shall have one law for the native among the sons of Israel and for the stranger who resides among them, for one who does anything wrong unintentionally.30 But the person who does wrong[l]defiantly, whether he is a native or a stranger, that one is blaspheming the Lord; and that person shall be cut off from among his people.31 Since he has despised the word of the Lord and has broken His commandment, that person shall be completely cut off; his [m]guilt will be on him.’”
