Welcome

Dave Roth, AuthorWow! The rebuilding of this website has been going much slower than I had hoped, but I am making progress. Our library consists of a series of daily bible studies that I have written over the past ten years. By God's grace, I have just finished installing the Book of Exodus and I hope it will be a blessing to everyone who uses it. There are nearly 1200 daily studies already posted for your pleasure.

I am posting the book of Leviticus one day at a time, Monday thru Friday, in the section below. You might want to follow this amazing book, which contains more direct quotes from the mouth of Yahweh than any other book in the Bible.

Meanwhile, in the background, I will be working on restoring some of the other book studies, which will appear in the menus. Unfortunately, I have had to block any comments by our readers, because my email was inundated with spam and I do not have the time to deal with that kind of problem.

Thank you for visiting this site and may God bless you and use you in mighty ways for your interest in learning and distributing His Holy Word. If you are a new Christian or an unbeliever seeking truth, let me suggest that you begin with the book of Matthew. The life and testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will bring you joy and blessings beyond belief.

God's Plea Bargain - Part II

Leviticus 6:1-7 (Cont.)

1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 2 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbor in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbor; 3 Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein: 4 Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found, 5 Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering. 6 And he shall bring his trespass offering unto the LORD, a ram without blemish out of the flock, with thy estimation, for a trespass offering, unto the priest: 7 And the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD: and it shall be forgiven him for any thing of all that he hath done in trespassing therein.


The first sin that is presented in this section of the trespass-offering is breach of trust. In ancient times there were no bankers. Traveling could be very dangerous and one would certainly not carry all of his wealth with him on the journey. A man who needed to travel would leave his money and/or his estate in the care of a friend. Upon his return, it was not uncommon to find that his friend no longer had his property or that his friend was claiming certain items to be his own.

Similarly, a person might loan property or money to a friend and then have trouble collecting what was owed. The friend might lie and say that the item was lost or that it wasn't very good and had broken while being used. He might even claim that he had already returned the item or the money and that the lender must have forgotten about it or lost the item.

This type of dispute is very common even today. Having an inner city ministry, the most frequent request that I receive is to lend someone money, and they will surely pay it back on payday. However, that has never happened, and I have learned not to lend money to anyone, because it causes a bitter resentment to know that they have lied and cheated me. Instead, I freely give that which I can afford and I expect nothing in return. It is much easier to live with myself when I never have any expectations of anyone but God.     Read More
