    Psalm
    32:1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
    32:2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity,
    and in whose spirit there is no guile.

    51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my
    sin.
    51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before​
    me

    I assume you are referring to the Old Covenant sacrifices.

    The sin offering was the most important sacrifice. It made atonement for the person of the offender, whereas the trespass-offering only atoned for one special offence. The trespass-offering may be regarded as representing ransom for a special wrong, while the sin-offering symbolised general redemption.

    Transgression is an act, process, or instance of transgressing: as a: infringement or violation of a law, command, or duty.

    What part of China are you from? I spent a month in Yanchen north of Shanghi in the 90's.

    Trespass and transgress mean the same thing. They mean to cross a boundry.
    1 Jo. 3:4 tells us transgression of The Law is Sin.
