raw flesh, that raw flesh shall announce him unclean; for he 16 is unclean. It is a leprosy. But if the raw flesh stop, and turn 17 white, he shall come to the priest. And when the priest shall

look, and see that the touch is turned white, the priest shall 18 pronounce him clean. In regard to the touch he is clean. And 19 if the flesh at the outer skin hath been a boil, and healed, and in

the place of the boil there be a white swelling of a very shin20 ing whiteness or redness, he shall appear before the priest; and

when the priest shall see that the appearance is deeper than the

pronounce him unclean, for it is a leprosy ; it hath broken out 21 in the boil. But if the priest shall see that there is no white hair

in it, and that it is not deeper than the outer skin, and the hair

is of a duskish colour, the priest shall set him apart seven days. 22 And if it actually spread on the skin, the priest shall pronounce

him unclean. It is a touch of the leprosy. It hath broken out 23 in the boil. But if the brightness continueth in its place and is

not spread; it is the effect of the boil and the priest shall pro24 nounce him clean. And if the flesh hath been a burn of fire,

and the burn when healed become remarkably splendent, 25 whitish, reddish, or very white, the priest shall view it: and if

the white hair hath changed to a shining whiteness, and the appearance is deeper than the skin, it is a leprosy. It hath broken

out in the burn. So the priest shall pronounce him unclean. It 26 is a touch of the leprosy. But if the priest see that there is no

white hair in the bright spot, and that it is not deeper than the

skin, but is of a brownish colour, the priest shall set him apart 27 seven days; and on the seventh day the priest shall view him;

and if it hath actually spread on the skin, the priest shall pro

nounce him unclean. It is a touch of the leprosy. It hath 28 broken out in the blister. But if the shining spot remaineth in

its place, and hath not spread on the skin, and the hair be of a

brownish colour, it is the effect of the burn, and the priest shall 29 pronounce him clean ; for it is the scar of the burn. And if 30 any man or woman hath a touch of the leprosy in the head or

on the chin, the priest shall view the touch ; and if he perceive that the appearance of the touch is deeper than the skin, and that the hair in it is thin, and of a yellowish colour, the priest shall pronounce the person unclean. It is a scald, a leprosy of 31 the head, or a leprosy of the chin. But if the priest, upon view.

ing the touch of the scald, see that the appearance of it is not deeper than the skin, and that the hair in it is not of a yellowish

colour, the priest shall set apart the person who hath the touch 32 of the scald, seven days. And on the seventh day the priest

shall view the touch; and if the scald hath not spread, and

there be no yellowish hair in it, and the appearance of the scald 33 is not deeper than the skin; then the skin must be shaved ;

but the scald must not be shaved, and the priest shall set apart 34 the scald seven days more. And on the seventh day, if the

priest, upon viewing the scald see that the scald hath not spread on the skin after the patient was shaved, and that the appear. ance of the scald is not deeper than the skin, the priest shall

pronounce him clean; and, having washed his clothes, he shall 35 be clean. But if the scald spread on the skin after the person 36 hath been pronounced clean, and the priest, upon viewing it,

shall see that the scald hath spread on the skin, the priest shall

examine no farther about the yellow hair, for he is unclean. 37 But, if upon his viewing it, the scald continueth in its place, and

the black hair grow in it,the scald is healed. He is clean, and the 38 priest shall pronounce him clean. And if any man or woman

hath shining spots on the skin of the flesh, of a shining white39 ness; and the pricst, upon viewing it, see in the skin of the flesh

spots of a shining whiteness, it is a kind of leucophlegmacy; 40 it springeth up in the skin of the flesh; he is clean. And if any

person's head shed its hair, though he be bald he is clean. And 41 if his head shed its hair before, he is forehead bald, yet he is 42 clean. But, if on the bald head, or bald forehead, there come a

white or red spot, it is a leprosy in the bald head, or bald fore43 head. And if the priest, upon viewing, see that the appearance

of the spot is white, or reddish, in the bald head, or bald forehead,

like the appearance of the leprosy in the skin of the flesh, he is 44 a leprous man, the priest shall instantly pronounce him un.

clean. The touch is in his head. 45 Now the leper who hath the touch, must have his clothes

rent, and his head uncovered, but he must cover his mouth, and 46 he shall be proclaimed unclean. All the time the touch shall

be upon him, being unclean, he shall be unclean, he shall dwell alone by himself. His abode shall be without the camp. 47 And if there be a touch of leprosy in a garment of wool, or

a garment of hemp, or any web woven, or any thing made of

linens or woollens, or in any skin, or workmanship made of 49 skin, and the touch be of a greenish or reddish colour in the

skin, or in the garment, or in the woven web, or in any vessel

made of skin, it is a touch of the leprosy, and must be shewn 50 to the priest. And the priest, upon seeing the touch, shall set 51 apart the thing touched, seven days. And if on the seventh

day the touch be spread in the garment, or in the web, or in

the skin, into whatever things the skins may be made up, the 52 touch is an inveterate leprosy. He must burn the garment,

or the web, whether made of linen thread, or woollen yarn, or whatever the thing be which is made of skin, in which there is

a touch of the leprosy. Because it is touched with leprosy, it 53 shall be burned with fire. But if the priest find that the touch

is not spread in the garment, or web, or vessel, whatever it be,

made of skin; the priest shall order that which hath the touch 54 to be washed, and the priest shall set it apart seven days more. 55 And if upon viewing the touch after it hath been washed, the

priest see that the touch hath not changed its appearance,

though it hath not spread, it is unclean, and must be burned 56 with fire. It is fixed in the garment, or web. But if the priest

see that the touch is of a brownish colour after being washed,

he shall tear it out of the garment, or web, or out of the skin. 57 And if it appear any more in the garment, or web, or in the

leathern vessel, whatever it be, it is a fretting leprosy; that in 58 which the touch is, shall be burned with fire. Now the gar

ment, or web, or any thing made of skin, which shall be wash

ed, and from which the touch shall depart, shall be washed a 59 second time with water, and it shall be clean. This is the law

of the touch of a leprosy, in a woollen or hempen garment, or web, or any vessel made of skin, to pronounce it clean, or un.

clean. XIV. Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, This is the law 2 of the leper. Whenever he is cleansed he shall be brought be3 fore the priest. The priest shall go out of the camp; and if

upon looking, the priest see that the touch of the leprosy is 4. healed in the leper, the priest shall give orders, and they shall take from him who is cleansed, two clean live birds, and cedar

5 wood, and scarlet yarn, and hyssop; and the priest shall give

orders, and they shall kill one live bird, over spring water, in 6 an earthen vessel. Then he shall take the living bird, and the

cedar wood, and the scarlet yarn, and the hyssop, and dip them,

and the living bird, in the blood of the bird which was killed over 7 the spring water, and sprinkle some of it seven times on him who

is cleansed from the leprosy, and he shall be clean. Then he shall 8 let the live bird go into the field. And he who is cleansed shall

wash his clothes, and shave off all his hair, and wash himself with water; and he shall be clean; and after this he may come into the

camp; but he must tarry abroad, out of his own house, seven days. 9 And on the seventh day he shall shave off all the hair on his

head, and beard, and his eye brows; and having shaved off all

his hair, he shall wash his clothes, and wash his body with water, 10 and he shall be clean. And on the eighth day he shall take

two male lambs, of the first year, without blemish, and three

tenths of fine flour, tempered with oil, for a sacrifice, and one 11 cotulus of oil; and the priest who pronounceth him clean shall

set the man who is cleansed, and these things, before the Lord, at 12 the door of the tabernacle of the testimony; and the priest shall

take one of the male lambs, and offer it for a trespass offering,

with the cotulus of oil, and set them apart as a dedication be. 13 fore the Lord; (Now they shall kill the lamb in the place where

they kill the whole burnt offerings and the sin offerings-in a

holy place) for as is the sin offering, so is the trespass offering, 14 for the priest. They are most holy. And the priest shall

take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of him who is cleansed,

and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the great toe of 15 his right foot. Then taking some of the cotulus of oil, the priest 16 shall pour it into his own left hand, and he shall dip his right

finger into the oil which is in his left hand, and sprinkle it with 17 his finger before the Lord seven times. And the rest of the

oil which is in his left hand the priest shall put on the tip of the right ear of him who is cleansed, and on the thumb of his

right hand, and on the great toe of his right foot on the place of 18 the blood of the trespass offering. And the oil still left in his

hand the priest shall put on the head of him who is cleansed. So shall the priest maké atonement for him before the Lord. 19 Then the priest shall prepare the sin offering, and make atonement

for him who is cleansed, with his sin offering, and after that the 20 priest shall kill the whole burnt offering. And the priest shall

offer up the whole burnt offering, and the sacrifice of flour, on

the altar. So shall the priest make atonement for him, and he 21 shall be cleansed. But if he be poor, and not of ability to fur

nish this, he shall take one lamb for the trespass which he hath committed, that it may be set apart as a dedication, so that atone

ment may be made for him, and a tenth of fine flour tempered 22 with oil for a sacrifice, and a cotulus of oil, and two turtle doves,

or two young pigeons, which ever he can find most readily, the

one for a sin offering, and the other for a whole burnt offering. 23 And on the eighth day he shall bring these to the priest, that

he may cleanse him, to the door of the tabernacle of the testi. 24 mony before the Lord. And the priest having taken the lamb

of the trespass offering, and the cotulus of oil, shall set them 25 apart as a dedication before the Lord. And he shall kill the

lamb of the trespass offering, and the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and put it on the tip of the

right ear of him who is cleansed, and on the thumb of his right 26 hand, and on the great toe of his right foot; then pouring some

of the oil into his own left hand, the priest shall sprinkle, with 27 his right finger, some of the oil in his left hand, seven times be28 fore the Lord. And the priest shall put some of the oil in his

hand on the tip of the right ear of him who is cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the great toe of his

right foot, on the place of the blood of the trespass offering; 29 and shall put the oil remaining in his hand, on the head of

him who is cleansed; so having made atonement for him 30 before the Lord, the priest shall offer one of the turtle doves, 31 or one of the young pigeons, as his hand hath found, the

one for a sin offering, and the other for a whole burnt offer32 ing, with the sacrifice of flour. So shall the priest make

atonement for him who is cleansed. This is the law for him on whom there is a touch of the leprosy, and who is not of abi.

for a possession, and I send a touch of a leprosy on the houses
