The author examines the Hebrew terms "hata' and hatta't" (commonly translated 'sin') in Leviticus 4-5. He proposes a revision of the common meaning of this term: 'Sin' in the Bible consequently is existential and it is essentially not concerned with an act or conduct, but with a condition of one's heart. Contents include: the meanings of "hata' and hatta't" in Lev. 4-5, the meanings of "hata' and hatta't" outside legal contexts, Distinguishing the two offerings, Appendices, Indices.
