Leviticus 5:16

(18) And he shall bring a ram.--Under such circumstances of suspense and feelings of guilt, he is to bring the same victim as in the former instance.

With thy estimation.--That is, according to thy i.e., Moses' valuation, the ram is to be worth two shekels. (See Leviticus 5:15.)

And wist it not.--Better, though he wist or knew not, the precise sacred thing which he used, as the same phrase is rendered in the preceding verse. That is, to be on the right side, the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning this error of inadvertence, though the offender is uncertain whether he actually committed the offence or not. Still, as the case is a doubtful one, he is exempt from the additional fifth part which the transgressor had to pay who indisputably committed this offence in ignorance. (See Leviticus 5:16.)
