Leviticus 5:15

Leviticus 6:4-7
once he has sinned and acknowledged [his] guilt-- he must return what he stole or defrauded, or the deposit entrusted to him, or the lost item he found,
or anything else about which he swore falsely. He must make full restitution for it and add a fifth of its value to it. He is to pay it to its owner on the day he acknowledges [his] guilt.
Then he must bring his restitution offering to the LORD: an unblemished ram from the flock, according to your valuation, as a restitution offering to the priest.
