11 “‘If, however, they cannot afford(A) two doves or two young pigeons,(B) they are to bring as an offering for their sin a tenth of an ephah[a](C) of the finest flour(D) for a sin offering. They must not put olive oil or incense on it, because it is a sin offering. 12 They are to bring it to the priest, who shall take a handful of it as a memorial[b] portion(E) and burn it on the altar(F) on top of the food offerings presented to the Lord. It is a sin offering. 13 In this way the priest will make atonement(G) for them for any of these sins they have committed, and they will be forgiven. The rest of the offering will belong to the priest,(H) as in the case of the grain offering.(I)’”
