Trespass

TRESPASS (Heb. ’ashām, Gr. paraptōma). Used in the KJV of the OT to express the rights of others, whether of God or of another person. In Jewish law acknowledged violation of a person’s rights required restoration plus one-fifth of the amount or value of the thing involved and the presentation of a guilt offering (kjv “trespass offering”). Unintentional trespass against God, when the guilty person became aware of it, required a guilt offering to remove guilt. Trespasses against us must be forgiven by us because God has forgiven our sin.
