אַל-תְּשַׁלְּחוּ אֹתוֹ רֵיקָם--כִּי-הָשֵׁב תָּשִׁיבוּ לוֹ, אָשָׁם; אָז
תֵּרָפְאוּ וְנוֹדַע לָכֶם, לָמָּה לֹא-תָסוּר יָדוֹ מִכֶּם

Israel, do not send it back empty-handed, but you should certainly
bring back a guilt offering to Him. Then you will be healed and it

says "after negatives ki becomes = but." Couldn't find it in

מִסְפַּר סַרְנֵי פְלִשְׁתִּים, חֲמִשָּׁה עפלי (טְחֹרֵי) זָהָב
וַחֲמִשָּׁה עַכְבְּרֵי זָהָב: כִּי-מַגֵּפָה אַחַת לְכֻלָּם,
BB They said, "What is the guild offering which we should send to

יִשְׂרָאֵל, כָּבוֹד; אוּלַי, יָקֵל אֶת-יָדוֹ מֵעֲלֵיכֶם, וּמֵעַל

mice, that destroy the land, and give glory to the God of Israel, that
he may lighten his hand off you, and off your god, and off your land.
