Leviticus Chapter 5 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "he shall be guilty in one of these things, that he (Hercules) shall (red radius) confess that he hath sinned in that thing:" (5:5) "And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the (Shekinah) Lord for his sin which he hath sinned, a female from the (Aries) flock, a lamb or a kid of the (Taurus) goats, for a sin offering; and the (Ophiuchus) priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his sin." (5:6). This is 360° seconds. "And if he be not able to bring a (Aries) lamb, then he shall bring for his trespass, which he hath committed, two (lunar white) turtledoves, or two young (lunar white) pigeons, unto the (Shekinah) Lord; one for a sin offering, and the other for a (solar) burnt offering." (5:7) This also takes 360° seconds. "And he shall bring them unto the priest, who shall offer that which is for the sin offering first, and wring off his (lunar white) head from his neck, but shall not divide it asunder:" (5:8). This requires 360° rotation. "And he shall sprinkle of the (red radius) blood of the sin offering upon the side of the (red radius) altar; and the rest of the (red radius) blood shall be wrung out at the bottom of the (red radius) altar: it is a sin offering." (5:9) This takes 360° seconds. "And he shall offer the second for a (solar) burnt offering, according to the manner: and the priest shall make an atonement for him for his sin which he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him." (5:10)


TRESPASS Offering: When He Knows of It,
Then He Shall Be Guilty
, If He Doesn't Say Something

5:1 And if a soul sin, and hear the (red radius) voice of swearing, and is a (lunar eye-ball) witness, whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not (red radius) utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity.

An instance of this adjuration is recorded in Matthew 26:63, where the high priest said to Jesus, “I adjure thee by the living God that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the son of God,” and it was in recognition of the solemn obligation of this adjuration that Jesus answered the question.

2 Or if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether it be a carcase of an unclean beast (Canis Minor, Canis Major, Ursa Minor, Cetus), or a carcase of unclean cattle (Taurus), or the carcase of unclean creeping things (Scorpio, Drago), and if it be hidden from him; he also shall be unclean, and guilty.

3 Or if he (Castor) touch the uncleanness of man (lunar white semen, solar golden manure), whatsoever uncleanness it be that a man shall be defiled withal, and it be hid from him; when he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty.

What Makes A Person UNCLEAN?

1. Contact with LEPROSY (defined broadly as infectious skin disease [-- Lev. 13:3; 22:4] or open wound [Lev. 15:5-12] molds or fungi).
2. Contact with SEMEN (unclean man) (Lev. 22:4) or MENSTRUAL BLOOD (unclean woman) (Lev. 15:19-30).
3. Contact with a woman who has given birth to a child (Lev. 12:2)
. "And whomsoever (s)he toucheth that hath the issue, and hath not rinsed his (her) hands in water, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even" (Lev. 15:11).
4. Contact with a DEAD BODY, whether human or animal, whether otherwise clean or unclean (Lev. 5:2; 11:8-31;11:39; 22:4).
5. Contact with an IDOL
6. Contact with human FECES or animal MANURE. (This includes flies landing on food after visiting a manure pile. Therefore, bury all manure).
7. Eating an UNCLEAN CREATURE (Lev.11:4,11,13; Deut.14:3,7,10,12,21). Even if an animal is otherwise clean, but has died by itself, or is torn by wild animals (Lev. 22:8), that makes it unclean.


Each PRIMARY cause of UNCLEANNESS can also transmit SECONDARY UNCLEANNESS to another person by direct physical contact or by mutual contact of an intermediate object: "Whatever the UNCLEAN (person) touches shall be UNCLEAN; and the person who touches it shall be UNCLEAN" (Num. 19:22). But if something or someone was HOLY (set apart for God's service), the HOLINESS was NOT TRANSFERRABLE: "If one bear HOLY flesh in the skirt of his garment, and with his skirt do touch bread, or pottage, or wine, or oil, or any meat, shall it be HOLY? And the priests answered ... NO" (Hag. 2:12). Thus, petting dogs and playing with cats, and raising chickens, most likely makes a person unclean also.

To be "unclean" may be connected to being "infectious". If you look at the causes of becoming unclean, the common theme of all these cases is infection. The ancient Hebrews most likely didn't know about the germ theory, bacteria or viruses that cause disease. They were given laws to prevent infection by an All-Knowing God. Every example in scripture of an unclean situation can be explained by modern science.

What Makes A Person CLEAN?

1. Those who are unclean must be excluded from the camp. Num. 5:2 says, "put out of the camp every leper, and every one that hath an issue, and whosoever is defiled by the dead".
2. Those contaminated are unclean until the evening (Lev. 22:6).
3. Wash your flesh with water (Lev. 22:6).
4. "Break" porous earthen vessel that contacts unclean thing (Lev. 11:33)

Some conclusions:
1.) Using money, pumping gasoline, riding public transport, using the public toilet, opening a door, sitting in a chair, buying food checked by cashiers, borrowing a library book all create an environment of contageous uncleanness. Many unclean men and women are employed in 40-hour a week jobs and so are not isolated or separated from society.
2.) A lake, river or ocean is a valid mikveh as well as a bath tub.
3.) Obedience to this teaching required a bath or shower every day if camping by the Tabernacle. Or if there is no Tabernacle or Temple, at least once a week (Friday afternoon) before coming into the presence of God on the Sabbath or Holy Days today.


4 Or if a soul swear (Hercules, Cepheus, Perseus, Castor), (red radius) pronouncing with his lips to do evil, or to do good, whatsoever it be that a man shall pronounce with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty in one of these.

5 And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these things, that he shall (red radius) confess that he hath sinned in that thing:

6 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the (Shekinah) Lord for his sin which he hath sinned, a female from the (Aries) flock, a lamb or a kid of the (Taurus) goats, for a sin offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his sin.

7 And if he be not able to bring a (Aries) lamb, then he shall bring for his trespass, which he hath committed, two (lunar white) turtledoves, or two young (lunar white) pigeons, unto the (Shekinah) Lord; one for a sin offering, and the other for a (solar) burnt offering.


8 And he shall bring them unto the priest, who shall offer that which is for the sin offering first, and wring off his (lunar white) head from his neck, but shall not divide it asunder:

9 And he shall sprinkle of the (red radius) blood of the sin offering upon the side of the (red radius) altar; and the rest of the (red radius) blood shall be wrung out at the bottom of the (red radius) altar: it is a sin offering.

10 And he shall offer the second for a (solar) burnt offering, according to the manner: and the priest shall make an atonement for him for his sin which he hath sinned, and it shall be forgiven him.

11 But if he be not able to bring two (lunar white) turtledoves, or two young (lunar white) pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth part of an ephah of fine (lunar white) flour for a sin offering; he shall put no (solar golden) oil upon it, neither shall he put any (solar golden) frankincense thereon: for it is a sin offering.

12 Then shall he bring it to the (Castor) priest, and the priest shall take his handful of it, even a memorial thereof, and (solar) burn it on the (red radius) altar, according to the offerings made by (solar) fire unto the (Shekinah) Lord: it is a sin offering.

13 And the priest shall make an atonement for him as touching his sin that he hath sinned in one of these, and it shall be forgiven him: and the remnant shall be the priest's, as a meat offering.

14 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

15 If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, in the holy things of the (Shekinah) Lord; then he shall bring for his trespass unto the Lord a (Aries) ram without blemish out of the flocks, with thy estimation by shekels of (lunar) silver, after the (lunar) shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering.

16 And he shall make amends for the harm that he hath done in the holy thing, and shall add the fifth part thereto (20%), and give it unto the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him with the (Aries) ram of the trespass offering, and it shall be forgiven him.

17 And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the Lord; though he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.

18 And he shall bring a (Aries) ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest: and the priest shall make an atonement for him concerning his ignorance wherein he erred and wist it not, and it shall be forgiven him.

19 It is a trespass offering: he hath certainly trespassed against the (Shekinah) Lord.
