* in the principal.
The property itself, if still remaining, or its full value,
to which a fifth part more was to be added, to compensate the
owner for the loss he had sustained by being deprived of the
use of his goods. He must also bring a trespass offering to
the Lord; which was intended to show that disobedience to God
is the great evil, even of those crimes which are injurious
to man, and that repentance, and even restitution, though
needful in order to forgiveness, cannot atone for sin.
* of his trespass offering. or, of his being found guilty.
Heb. of trespass.
