An injury done to another, with more or less culpability. The Mosaic law required a trespasser not only to make satisfaction to the person injured, but by an offering at the altar to reconcile himself to the divine Governor, Leviticus 5:1-19; 6:1-7; Psalms 51:4. Christ repeatedly declares, that in order to be forgiven of God, we must be forgiving to men, Matthew 6:14,15, and that no brother must have aught against us, Matthew 5:23,24.
