Lev 5:1

“If anyone sins.” Leviticus 5:1-13 continues the rules given in chapter four about the sin offering. It would have been less confusing for the reader if Leviticus 5:1 had not been a new chapter but instead had been numbered as part of Leviticus 4. That would have made Leviticus chapter four have 48 verses instead of 35, but then all of chapter four would have been about the sin offering and then Leviticus 5 would start a new subject and be about the trespass offering. As it is, the first part of Leviticus 5 continues the information about the sin offering and a new subject, the trespass offering, starts in the middle of chapter five (Lev. 5:14).

“his offering for his guilt.” The Hebrew word asham (#0817) in this context refers to the penalty for the guilt the person incurred due to their sin, so it is translated as “offering for guilt.”

“unfaithfully, yes, unfaithfully.” God uses the figure of speech polyptoton for emphasis (see commentary on Gen. 2:16). To sin ignorantly is still to be unfaithful and trespass against God.
