CHAPTER 13

Laws Regarding Skin Infections

And the  lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, [3man 1If 2any] should have in the skin of his flesh a discoloration [2spot 1radiant], and [3takes place 4in 5the skin 6of his flesh 1an infection 2of leprosy], he shall be led to Aaron the priest, or one of his sons of the priests. And [3shall look at 1the 2priest] the infection in the skin of his flesh, and if the hair in the infection should turn white, and the appearance of the infection be deep under the skin of his flesh, [2an infection 3of leprosy 1it is]; and [3shall look 1the 2priest], and shall declare him defiled. And if the radiant spot should be white in the skin of his flesh, and [3deep 2should not be 1its appearance] below the skin, and its hair did not turn white, but it is faint, then [3shall separate 1the 2priest] the infection for seven days; and [3shall look at 1the 2priest] the infection on the [2day 1seventh]; and behold, if the infection abides before him, and [3did not 4degenerate 1if the 2infection] in the skin, then [3shall separate 4him 1the 2priest] seven days the second time. And [3shall look at 1the 2priest] him on the [2day 1seventh] the second time. And behold, [3is faint 1if the 2infection], [3did not 4degenerate 1and the 2infection] in the skin, then [3will cleanse 4him 1the 2priest] -- [3a spot 1for 2it is]. And washing his garments he will be clean. But if in turning, [3degenerates 1the 2spot] in the skin after [3looking at 4him 1the 2priest] to cleanse him, then he shall appear the second time to the priest. And [3shall look at 4him 1the 2priest], and behold, [3degenerated 1if the 2spot] in the skin, then [3shall declare him defiled 1the 2priest] -- it is leprosy. And [2an infection 3of leprosy 1if] happens in a man, then he shall come to the priest, 10 and [3shall look 1the 2priest], and behold, [2discoloration 1if it is a white] in the skin, and if it turned the hair white, and some of the healthy flesh be living in the discoloration -- 11 [2a leprosy 3becoming old 1it is] in the skin of his flesh, and [3shall declare him defiled 1the 2priest], and shall separate him, for he is unclean. 12 But if blooming [2shall break out 1leprosy] in the skin, and [3shall cover 1the 2leprosy] all the skin with the infection, from head unto his feet, according to the whole vision of the priest; 13 then [3shall look 1the 2priest], and behold, [3covers 1if the 2leprosy] all the skin of his flesh, then he shall cleanse the infection, for all turned white -- it is clean. 14 And in what ever day should appear to him [2flesh 1living], he shall be declared defiled. 15 And [3shall look at 1the 2priest] the [2flesh 1healthy], and [4shall prove him defiled 3flesh 1the 2healthy]; for it is unclean, it is leprosy. 16 But if [4should restore 3flesh 1the 2healthy] and turn white, then he shall come to the priest, 17 and [3shall see 4him 1the 2priest], and behold, [3turned 1the 2infection] to the white, then [3shall declare him cleansed 1the 2priest] by the infection -- he is clean. 18 And if flesh should have [2in 3his skin 1a lesion], and should heal, 19 and there should become in the place of the lesion, [2discoloration 1a white], or radiant being whitened, or being reddish, and it should be looked at by the priest; 20 then [3shall look 1the 2priest], and behold, if the appearance be deeper under the skin, and its hair turns into white, then [3shall declare him defiled 1the 2priest], for it is leprosy, [2in 3the 4lesion 1it broke out]. 21 But if [3should look at 4him 1the 2priest], and behold, there is no [3on 4it 2hair 1white], and [2deep 1it should not be] under the skin of the flesh, and it should be faint, then [3shall separate 4him 1the 2priest] seven days. 22 But if in a diffusion it should have diffused in the skin, then [3shall declare him defiled 1the 2priest]; [2an infection 3of leprosy 1it is]; [2in 3the 4lesion 1it broke out]. 23 And if in its place [3should abide 1the 2radiance], and should not diffuse, [2a discoloration 3of the 4lesion 1it is], and [3shall cleanse 4him 1the 2priest]. 24 And if flesh should become [3in 4his skin 2inflammation 1a fiery], and there should be in his skin the healing of the inflammation, shining forth radiant white, becoming somewhat reddish or very white; 25 then [3shall look at 4him 1the 2priest], and behold, [2is turned 1if the hair] white in the shining forth, and the appearance of it is deep under the skin, it is leprosy; [2in 3the 4inflammation 1it broke out], and [3shall declare him defiled 1the 2priest]; [2an infection 3of leprosy 1it is]. 26 But if [3should look at 4him 1the 2priest], and behold, there is not in the shining forth [2hair 1a white], and [2deep 1it should not be] under the skin, but it is faint, then [3shall separate 4him 1the 2priest] seven days. 27 And [3shall look at 4him 1the 2priest] in the [2day 1seventh]. But if the diffusion should diffuse in the skin, then [3shall declare him defiled 1the 2priest]; [2an infection 3of leprosy 1it is]; [2in 3the 4lesion 1it broke out]. 28 But if [4in its 5place 3should stay 1the 2shining forth], and should not be diffused in the skin, but it should be faint, [2a discoloration 3of 4an inflammation 1it is], and [3should declare him cleansed 1the 2priest]; for [2an effect 3of 4an inflammation 1it is]. 29 And a man or a woman, in whom ever has in themselves an infection of leprosy in the head or in the beard; 30 then [3shall look at 1the 2priest] the infection. And behold, if its appearance be imbedded under the skin, [2in 3it 1and 6hair 4a yellowish 5thin], then [3shall declare him defiled 1the 2priest]; it is an outbreak, [2a leprosy 3of the 4head 5or 6a leprosy 7of the 8beard 1it is]. 31 And if [3should look at 1the 2priest] the infection of the outbreak, and behold, [3is not 1the 2appearance] imbedded under the skin, and the hair [2yellowish 1is not] in it, then [3shall separate 1the 2priest] the infection of the outbreak seven days. 32 And [3shall look at 1the 2priest] the infection on the [2day 1seventh]. And behold, [3should not be diffused 1if the 2outbreak], and [4hair 3yellowish 2no 1there is] in it, and the appearance of the outbreak is not hollow under the skin; 33 then [3shall be shaven 1the 2skin], but the outbreak shall not be shaven; and [3shall separate 1the 2priest] the outbreak seven days for the second time. 34 And [3shall look at 1the 2priest] the outbreak on the [2day 1seventh]; and behold, [3should not 4be diffused 1if the 2outbreak] in the skin after the shaving of it, and the appearance of the outbreak is not hollow under the skin, then [3shall cleanse 4him 1the 2priest]; and washing his garments, he will be clean. 35 But if the diffusion should be diffused in the outbreak in the skin after cleansing it, 36 then [3shall look at 4him 1the 2priest], and behold, [3should be diffused 1if the 2outbreak] in the skin, [3shall not 4examine 1the 2priest] concerning the hair being yellowish -- he is unclean. 37 But if before him [3should abide 4in 5its place 1the 2outbreak], and [2hair 1a black] should rise in it, [3is healed 1the 2outbreak] -- he is clean, and [3shall declare him cleansed 1the 2priest]. 38 And a man or woman, in whom ever should have in the skin of his flesh shinings shining forth being white, 39 then [3shall look 1the 2priest]; and behold, in the skin of his flesh shinings shining forth being white, it is a psoriasis, it broke out in the skin, he is clean. 40 And if any one be loose of hair then his head is only bald; he is clean. 41 But if [3by 4his face 2is loose of hair 1his head], he is forehead bald; he is clean. 42 But if there becomes in his baldness, or in his being forehead bald [2infection 1a white] or reddening, [2leprosy 3blossoming 1it is] in his baldness, or in his forehead baldness. 43 And [3shall look at 4him 1the 2priest]. And behold, if the appearance of the infection be white or reddish in the his baldness, or in his being forehead bald as the form of leprosy in the skin of his flesh, 44 [3man 2a leprous 1he is], he is unclean; in defilement [3shall declare him defiled 1the 2priest] -- in his head is his infection. 45 And the leper in whom is the infection, his garments shall be disabled, and his head uncovered, and concerning his mouth let him put something around it! And [2unclean 1he shall call himself] 46 all the days, as many as [3might be 4upon 5him 1the 2infection] -- being unclean, he shall be unclean; being separated he shall sit down outside of his camp, it will be to him a place for pastime. 47 And a garment which ever should have in it an infection of leprosy in [2garment 1a woolen], or in a garment made of hemp, 48 or in the warp, or in the woof, or in the flaxen linens, or in the woolen threads, or in a skin, or in any workmanship of skin, 49 and [3should become 1the 2infection] greenish or reddish in the skin, or in the garment, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in any item of workmanship of skin, [2an infection 3of leprosy 1it is]; and he shall show it to the priest. 50 And [3shall look at 1the 2priest] the infection; and [3shall separate 1the 2priest] the infection seven days. 51 And he shall look at the infection on the [2day 1seventh]. But if [3should diffuse 1the 2infection] in the garment, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in the skin, according to all as much as might be made with the skins in the work, [2leprosy 1it is permanent]; [2infection 1it is an unclean]. 52 He shall incinerate the garment, or the warp, or the woof which is in the woolen garments, or in the flaxen linens, or in every item made of skin, in which ever there might be in it the infection; for [2leprosy 1it is a permanent]; by fire it shall be incinerated. 53 But if [3should look 1the 2priest], and [3should not be diffused 1the 2infection] in the garment, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in any item made of skin; 54 then [3shall order 1the 2priest], and one shall wash that upon which ever there might be [2upon 3it 1an infection]; and [3shall separate 1the 2priest] the infection seven days for the second time. 55 And [3shall look 1the 2priest] after the washing the infection; and thus [3in no way 4should turn 1the 2infection] of its appearance, and the infection did not diffuse, it is unclean; in fire you shall incinerate it; it is fixed firm in the garment, or in the warp, or in the woof. 56 And if [3should look 1the 2priest], and [3should be 4faint 1the 2infection] after washing it, he shall rip it from the garment, or from the warp, or from the woof, or from the skin. 57 And if it should appear still in the garment, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in any item made of skin, [2leprosy 3breaking forth 1it is]; by fire you shall incinerate [5in 1that which 4is 2the 3infection]. 58 And the garment, or the warp, or the woof, or any item made of skin which shall be washed, and [3leaves 4from 5it 1the 2infection], that it shall be washed the second time, and it shall be clean. 59 This is the law of an infection of leprosy of a garment of wool, or made of hemp, or warp, or woof, or any item made of skin, in the declaring it cleansed or defiled.
