Breadcrumb: Don't tell God, tell him!

In Judaism, a person who wrongs another person must confess the sin he has committed and offer recompense to the injured party. (Num. 5:5-10) Furthermore, he not only has to make restitution for the amount of the wrong, but he needs to add another 20% just to show that there are no hard feelings. If the man is dead, the guilty party must give the restitution to the victim's family. If the victim has no family, the restitution is given as a contribution to the priests instead. As I've said before, it was a good life to be a priest.
