15  When a person commits a trespass, being unwittingly remiss about any of Hashem‘s sacred things, he shall bring as his penalty to Hashem a ram without blemish from the flock, convertible into payment in silver by the sanctuary weight, as a guilt offering.

5:15   When a person commits a trespass

Chapter five contains a list of sins for which one is required to bring a guilt-offering. Among those listed is the transgression of benefiting from an object belonging to the Beit Hamikdash. This refers to someone who eats or derives other personal gain from food or property that belongs to the Temple, including its wood or stones, or who improperly eats part of a sacrifice. The verse calls this sin ‘a trespass’, an improper use of something holy. We must be careful to honor the sanctity, not only of the Beit Hamikdash, but of the entire Holy Land, and not to misuse any part of it.
