comment Sin vs trespass vs transgression
I appreciate where you are going with the Raphael, but it is, in my opinion, far too broad for this format as it currently stands. I'd focus down on one example of each of sin, trespass and transgression from Leviticus and keep the question local to there and the Hebrew text. You may then be able to ask on-topic reasonably-scoped follow-on questions.

It'd be helpful to have links for further reading about Rav Moshe Shapiro and his work - and even better if you could include an actual quote in your answer.

I didn't know that Peter was quoting Psalm 4 - would you mind if I incorporate that into my answer? (I'll credit you of course).

comment Different meanings of 'Earth' in Genesis 1
This does help, and sits well with the NET translator notes on the usage in verse 2: "That is, what we now call “the earth.” The creation of the earth as we know it is described in vv. 9-10. Prior to this the substance which became the earth (= dry land) lay dormant under the water." I've noticed that some Gen usages have the article and a few don't. Do those with the article refer to 'the earth' as a whole, and those without refer to 'earth' as in 'the ground' or 'soil'?

Google says pigs do not sweat heavily - quite the opposite, they sweat very little.
