THE TRESPASS-OPFERIG.BY REV. W. THISTLETHWAITE, M.A.,Levit. VI. 6, 7.And he shaU bring his trespass^offering untothe Lordy a ram nnthout blemish out of theJlock^ with thy estimation, for a trespass-offering unto the priest : and the priestshaU make an atonement for him hefore theLord: and it shall he forgiven him forany thing of aïí that he hath done in tres-passing therein.I HAVE read to jou these words as introduc-tory to the cousideration of another of thoseofferings which were enjoined upon the Jews,and which were so remarkably typical of thesacrifice of Christ. This is the trespass-offer-ing, which in some particulars differs hut littlefrom the sin-offering, but in others there is a94 THE TRESPASS-OFFERIG.strong and plainly marked distinction, as weshall see by an examiuation of it.The offences which required the presentingof a trespass-offering, were, first, those whichare mentioned in the four first verses of thefifth chapter. These were the concealing anypart of tlie truth by a witness who gave evi-dence on oath ; the touching of any uncleanperson or thing; and the swearing rashly thathe would do what might be sinful, or what hemight not be able to perform. In all thesecases he was to make a voluntary confessionthat he had sinned, and he was to bring as atrespass-offering unto the Lord^ a female lambor kid, which was to be offered with preciselythe same ceremonies as the sin-offering, ex-cept that the blood, instead of being put uponthe homs of the altar, was to be sprinkled
 
round about the altar. If the offender wastoo poor to give a lamb, then he was to bringtwo turtle-doves, or twó young pigeons, oneof which was to be offered with the ceremo-nies of the sin-offering, and the other with theceremonies of the burnt-offering. If he wasso very poor that he could not procure evenTHE TRESPASS-OFFERIG. 95these, then he was to offer the tenth part of an epfaah, that is about five piuts^ of fine flour,without either oil or frankincense, both whichalways accompanied the meat-oflfering, andtfais was to be offered with the ceremonies of the meat-offering.A second class of offences, for which atrespass.offering was necessarj, consisted inany trespass committed through ignorance inthe holy things of the Lord, that is^ if anyone had unwittingly kept back anj of therequired offerings which were to be made tothe Lord, or had eaten any of those parts of the sacrifices which were the due of thepriests, then he was to bring as a trespass-offering a ram without blemish. But besidesthis, he was to make restitution, a proper es-timatíon being made in standard monej of theyalue of that which had thus been misappro-priated^ and moreover he was to add a fifthpart more of this estimated value. ay evenif he only suspected that he had offendedin anj of these holy things of the Lord, hewas to bring the ram as a trespass-offering,and to pay the estimated Talue, but without96 THE TRESPASS-OFFERIG.the additíon of the fifUi part. Doing Úïvlsthe priest should make an atonement for him,and it shonld he forgÍTen hinu
 
A third class of offences which reqnired atrespass-offering were actions wherehy anotherperson was injnred ; as when anj one deniedwhat had been committed to his tmst, ordealt frandulently in any concem of part-nership, or took any thing away by openviolence, or secretly deceiyed his neíghbourto his loss, or denied the having fonnd thatwhich was lost. In all these cases he mnstbring a ram for a trespass-offering, and mnstpay the valne, estimated by the priest, of theinjury done, with the additíon of the fifthpart thereof ; and thus again, " the priestshould make an atonement for him before theLord, and it should be forgiven him for anything of all that he hath done in trespassingtherein."I think that you cannot but haye noticedthe number of yaríous sacrifices which wererequired of the Jews. We have now consi-dered the bumt-offeríng; the meat-offering,the peace-offering, the sin-offerÍDg; and theTHE TRESPASS-OFFERIG. 97trespass-oflfering. And besides these therewere others expressly appointed for the priests,and for certain particular occasions^ as wellas the daily bnmt sacrifices oflFered momingand evening, which we have yet hereafterto consider. ow these multiplied ojïerings,which the people were required to bring, withthe many various minute ritual observancesimposed upon them, were, as St. Peter saysin the Acts of the Apostles, ^' a yoke, whichneither their fathers nor they were able tobear." We have but one sacrífice ; nay wehave not even to find that one sacrífice at ourown cost; it has been found for us. TheApostle draws this contrast between the manysacrífices of the Jews, and the one sacríficeof Christ in a very striking manner in hisEpistle to the Hebrews. He says in thetenth chapter, " Every high príest standeth
