God spoke to Moses with instructions to speak to the Israelites and tell them the following:
Vayedaber Adonay el-Moshe lemor.
4:2 [This is the law] if an individual commits an inadvertent sin by violating certain [specified] prohibitory commandments of God.
Daber el-beney Yisra'el lemor nefesh ki-techeta vishgagah mikol mitsvot Adonay asher lo te'aseynah ve'asah me'achat mehenah.
4:3 If the anointed priest commits an [inadvertent] violation, bringing guilt to his people, the sacrifice for his violation shall be an unblemished young bull as a sin offering to God.
Im hakohen hamashi'ach yecheta le'ashmat ha'am vehikriv al chatato asher chata par ben-bakar tamim l'Adonay lechatat.
