Sin—found throughout the Bible, but specifically 110 times in eighty-two verses in the book of Leviticus
Variations: sin, sinful, sinned, sinner, sinners, sinnest, sinneth, sinning, sins
First usage in Leviticus: Leviticus 4:2 (sin)

Defined: the transgression of the law
Interesting fact: Sin has a voice and it uses that voice to testify against those who partake in sinful deeds (Isaiah 59:12; Jeremiah 14:7). The Bible says that sin first lures with temptations and lusts and hooks the sinner. Once hooked, in the court of God’s law, sin turns upon those who partake. Paul said it this way, “For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me” (Romans 7:11).
Bible study tip: The Old Testament uses three primary names for God. They usually appear in the English Bible as God, Lord, and LORD. These variations are translated from varying words and carry independent meanings. For example, LORD is translated from the word Jehovah (a name also appearing in the Bible) and is often employed to depict God as the self-sufficient God. In order to be a good student of God’s word, find out what these names mean and why God would choose to use one name over the other in a particular text.
