Leviticus

Leviticus. Chapter 13

   

1 And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying:

2 "When a man has on the skin of his body a swelling, a scab, or a bright spot, and it becomes on the skin of his body [like] a leprous sore, then he shall be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons the priests.

3 "The priest shall examine the sore on the skin of the body; and if the hair on the sore has turned white, and the sore appears [to be] deeper than the skin of his body, it [is] a leprous sore. Then the priest shall examine him, and pronounce him unclean.

4 "But if the bright spot [is] white on the skin of his body, and does not appear [to be] deeper than the skin, and its hair has not turned white, then the priest shall isolate [the one who has] the sore seven days.

5 "And the priest shall examine him on the seventh day; and indeed [if] the sore appears to be as it was, [and] the sore has not spread on the skin, then the priest shall isolate him another seven days.

6 "Then the priest shall examine him again on the seventh day; and indeed [if] the sore has faded, [and] the sore has not spread on the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean; it [is only] a scab, and he shall wash his clothes and be clean.

7 "But if the scab should at all spread over the skin, after he has been seen by the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen by the priest again.

8 "And [if] the priest sees that the scab has indeed spread on the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean. It [is] leprosy.

9 " When the leprous sore is on a person, then he shall be brought to the priest.

10 "And the priest shall examine [him;] and indeed [if] the swelling on the skin [is] white, and it has turned the hair white, and [there is] a spot of raw flesh in the swelling,

11 "it [is] an old leprosy on the skin of his body. The priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not isolate him, for he [is] unclean.

12 " And if leprosy breaks out all over the skin, and the leprosy covers all the skin of [the one who has] the sore, from his head to his foot, wherever the priest looks,

13 "then the priest shall consider; and indeed [if] the leprosy has covered all his body, he shall pronounce [him] clean [who has] the sore. It has all turned white. He [is] clean.

14 "But when raw flesh appears on him, he shall be unclean.

15 "And the priest shall examine the raw flesh and pronounce him to be unclean; [for] the raw flesh [is] unclean. It [is] leprosy.

16 "Or if the raw flesh changes and turns white again, he shall come to the priest.

17 "And the priest shall examine him; and indeed [if] the sore has turned white, then the priest shall pronounce [him] clean [who has] the sore. He [is] clean.

18 " If the body develops a boil in the skin, and it is healed,

19 "and in the place of the boil there comes a white swelling or a bright spot, reddish-white, then it shall be shown to the priest;

20 "and [if,] when the priest sees it, it indeed [appears] deeper than the skin, and its hair has turned white, the priest shall pronounce him unclean. It [is] a leprous sore which has broken out of the boil.

21 "But if the priest examines it, and indeed [there are] no white hairs in it, and it [is] not deeper than the skin, but has faded, then the priest shall isolate him seven days;

22 "and if it should at all spread over the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean. It [is] a leprous sore.

23 "But if the bright spot stays in one place, [and] has not spread, it [is] the scar of the boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

24 " Or if the body receives a burn on its skin by fire, and the raw [flesh] of the burn becomes a bright spot, reddish-white or white,

25 "then the priest shall examine it; and indeed [if] the hair of the bright spot has turned white, and it appears deeper than the skin, it [is] leprosy broken out in the burn. Therefore the priest shall pronounce him unclean. It [is] a leprous sore.

26 "But if the priest examines it, and indeed [there are] no white hairs in the bright spot, and it [is] not deeper than the skin, but has faded, then the priest shall isolate him seven days.

27 "And the priest shall examine him on the seventh day. If it has at all spread over the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean. It [is] a leprous sore.

28 "But if the bright spot stays in one place, [and] has not spread on the skin, but has faded, it [is] a swelling from the burn. The priest shall pronounce him clean, for it [is] the scar from the burn.

29 " If a man or woman has a sore on the head or the beard,

30 "then the priest shall examine the sore; and indeed if it appears deeper than the skin, [and there is] in it thin yellow hair, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean. It [is] a scaly leprosy of the head or beard.

31 "But if the priest examines the scaly sore, and indeed it does not appear deeper than the skin, and [there is] no black hair in it, then the priest shall isolate [the one who has] the scale seven days.

32 "And on the seventh day the priest shall examine the sore; and indeed [if] the scale has not spread, and there is no yellow hair in it, and the scale does not appear deeper than the skin,

33 "he shall shave himself, but the scale he shall not shave. And the priest shall isolate [the one who has] the scale another seven days.

34 "On the seventh day the priest shall examine the scale; and indeed [if] the scale has not spread over the skin, and does not appear deeper than the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean. He shall wash his clothes and be clean.

35 "But if the scale should at all spread over the skin after his cleansing,

36 "then the priest shall examine him; and indeed [if] the scale has spread over the skin, the priest need not seek for yellow hair. He [is] unclean.

37 "But if the scale appears to be at a standstill, and there is black hair grown up in it, the scale has healed. He [is] clean, and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

38 " If a man or a woman has bright spots on the skin of the body, [specifically] white bright spots,

39 "then the priest shall look; and indeed [if] the bright spots on the skin of the body [are] dull white, it [is] a white spot [that] grows on the skin. He [is] clean.

40 "As for the man whose hair has fallen from his head, he [is] bald, [but] he [is] clean.

41 "He whose hair has fallen from his forehead, he [is] bald on the forehead, [but] he [is] clean.

42 "And if there is on the bald head or bald forehead a reddish-white sore, it [is] leprosy breaking out on his bald head or his bald forehead.

43 "Then the priest shall examine it; and indeed [if] the swelling of the sore [is] reddish-white on his bald head or on his bald forehead, as the appearance of leprosy on the skin of the body,

44 "he is a leprous man. He [is] unclean. The priest shall surely pronounce him unclean; his sore [is] on his head.

45 "Now the leper on whom the sore [is,] his clothes shall be torn and his head bare; and he shall cover his mustache, and cry, 'Unclean! Unclean!'

46 "He shall be unclean. All the days he has the sore he shall be unclean. He [is] unclean, and he shall dwell alone; his dwelling [shall be] outside the camp.

47 " Also, if a garment has a leprous plague in it, [whether it is] a woolen garment or a linen garment,

48 "whether [it is] in the warp or woof of linen or wool, whether in leather or in anything made of leather,

49 "and if the plague is greenish or reddish in the garment or in the leather, whether in the warp or in the woof, or in anything made of leather, it [is] a leprous plague and shall be shown to the priest.

50 "The priest shall examine the plague and isolate [that which has] the plague seven days.

51 "And he shall examine the plague on the seventh day. If the plague has spread in the garment, either in the warp or in the woof, in the leather [or] in anything made of leather, the plague [is] an active leprosy. It [is] unclean.

52 "He shall therefore burn that garment in which is the plague, whether warp or woof, in wool or in linen, or anything of leather, for it [is] an active leprosy; [the garment] shall be burned in the fire.

53 " But if the priest examines [it,] and indeed the plague has not spread in the garment, either in the warp or in the woof, or in anything made of leather,

54 "then the priest shall command that they wash [the thing] in which [is] the plague; and he shall isolate it another seven days.

55 "Then the priest shall examine the plague after it has been washed; and indeed [if] the plague has not changed its color, though the plague has not spread, it [is] unclean, and you shall burn it in the fire; it continues eating away, [whether] the damage [is] outside or inside.

56 "If the priest examines [it,] and indeed the plague has faded after washing it, then he shall tear it out of the garment, whether out of the warp or out of the woof, or out of the leather.

57 "But if it appears again in the garment, either in the warp or in the woof, or in anything made of leather, it [is] a spreading [plague;] you shall burn with fire that in which is the plague.

58 "And if you wash the garment, either warp or woof, or whatever is made of leather, if the plague has disappeared from it, then it shall be washed a second time, and shall be clean.

59 " This [is] the law of the leprous plague in a garment of wool or linen, either in the warp or woof, or in anything made of leather, to pronounce it clean or to pronounce it unclean."
