Pasha (פשׁע ) signifies to revolt or refuse subjection to rightful authority. It is very generally rendered transgression. The chief LXX renderings for it are ἀσέβεια, ἀδικία, and ἀνομία. We meet with the verb in Psalms 51:13, 'Then will I teach transgressors thy ways, and sinners shall be converted unto thee;' Proverbs 28:21, ' for a piece of bread a man will transgress' (i.e. rebel); Isaiah 43:27, 'Thy teachers have transgressed against me.'

Pasha is rendered sin in Proverbs 10:12, 'Love covereth all sins,' where the contrast between the offence and the mercy is brought out very clearly by the use of the word; again it is found in verse 19, ' in the multitude of words there wanteth not sin;' 28:13, 'He that covereth his sins shall not prosper.' It is rendered trespass in Genesis 31:36; Genesis 50:17; Exodus 22:9; 1 Samuel 25:28; and Hosea 8:1, 'They have trespassed against my law.' in 2 Kings 8:20; 2 Kings 8:22, it is used in its primary sense of the revolt of Edom and Libnah; in 1 Kings 12:19, of the 'rebellion' of Israel against Judah; so also in other passages. We meet with the word in Job 34:37, where it is said of him that 'he addeth rebellion unto his sin.' Lastly, it occurs in the opening of the prophecies of Isaiah, 'I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me' (Isaiah 1:2).
