Leviticus 14

CHAPTER 14

Laws Regarding the Leper

And the  lord spoke to Moses, saying, This is the law of the leper. In what ever day he should have been cleansed, and shall be brought to the priest; that [3shall come forth 1the 2priest] outside the camp. And [3shall look 1the 2priest], and behold, [3has been healed 1if the 2infection] of the leprosy from the leper, then [3shall assign 1the 2priest], and they shall take for the one being cleansed two [3small birds 2living 1clean], and wood of cedar, and twined scarlet, and hyssop. And [3shall assign 1the 2priest], and they shall slay the [2small bird 1one] into [2receptacle 1an earthenware] over [2water 1living]. And as for the small bird, the one living, he shall take it, and the wood of cedar, and the spun scarlet, and the hyssop; and he shall dip them and the small bird that is living into the blood of the small bird being slain over [2water 1living]. And he shall sprinkle it about upon the one being cleansed of the leprosy seven times, and he will be clean. And he shall send out the small [2bird 1living] into the plain. And [3shall wash 1the man 2being cleansed] his garments, and he shall shave all his hair, and shall bathe in water, and shall be clean. And after these things he shall enter into the camp, and shall spend time outside of his house seven days. And it will be on the [2day 1seventh], he shall shave all of his hair, the hair of his head, and the beard, and the brows; even all his hair he shall shave. And he shall wash his garments, and shall bathe his body in water, and he shall be clean. 10 And on the [2day 1eighth] he shall take two lambs, unblemished, of a year old, and [2sheep 1one], unblemished of a year old, and three tenths of fine flour for a sacrifice offering, being mixed in olive oil, and [2small cup 3of olive oil 1one]. 11 And [5shall stand 1the 2priest 3that 4cleanses] the man for the cleansing, and these offerings before the  lord, at the door of the tent of the testimony. 12 And [3shall take 1the 2priest] the [2lamb 1one], and bring it for the trespass offering, and the small cup of olive oil; and he shall separate them as a separation offering before the  lord. 13 And he shall slay the lamb in the place where they slay the whole burnt-offerings, and the ones for a sin offering, in [2place 1the holy]. For it is the one for a sin offering; as the one of the trespass offering is for the priest -- [2a holy 3of holies 1it is]. 14 And [3shall take 1the 2priest] from the blood, of the one of the trespass offering, and [3shall place it 1the 2priest] upon the lobe of the ear of the one being cleansed -- the right, and upon the thumb of his hand -- the right, and upon the big toe of his foot -- the right. 15 And [3taking 1the 2priest] from the small cup of the olive oil, he shall pour upon the [2hand 3of the 4priest 1left]. 16 And [3shall dip 1the 2priest] [3finger 1his 2right] from the olive oil being in [3hand 1his 2left]. And he shall sprinkle from the olive oil with his finger seven times before the  lord. 17 And the left behind olive oil being in his hand, [3shall place 1the 2priest] upon the lobe of the [2ear 3of the one 4being cleansed 1right], and upon the thumb of his hand -- the right, and upon the big toe of his foot -- the right, upon the place of the blood of the trespass offering. 18 And the left over olive oil that is upon the hand of the priest, [3shall place it 1the 2priest] upon the head of the one being cleansed, and [3shall atone 4for 5him 1the 2priest] before the  lord. 19 And [3shall offer 1the 2priest] the thing for the sin offering, and [3shall atone 1the 2priest] for the one being cleansed of his sin. And after this [3shall slay 1the 2priest] the whole burnt-offering. 20 And [3shall offer 1the 2priest] the whole burnt-offering, and the sacrifice upon the altar before the  lord; and [3shall atone 4for 5him 1the 2priest], and he shall be cleansed. 21 And if he should be in need, and his hand should not find what is needed, he shall take [2lamb 1one] for what he trespassed for a cut-away portion, so as to atone for him, and a tenth of fine flour being mixed in olive oil for a sacrifice, and [2small cup 3of olive oil 1one], 22 and two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, as much as [2found 1his hand]. And [3shall be 1the 2one] for a sin offering, and the one for a whole burnt-offering. 23 And he shall bring them on the [2day 1eighth], for his cleansing, to the priest, unto the door of the tent of the testimony before the  lord. 24 And [3shall take 1the 2priest] the lamb of the trespass offering, and the small cup of the olive oil, and he shall place them for an increase offering before the  lord. 25 And he shall slay the lamb, the one for the trespass offering; and [3shall take 1the 2priest] from the blood of the one for the trespass offering, and shall place it upon the lobe of the ear of the one being cleansed -- the right, and upon the thumb of his hand -- the right, and upon the big toe of his foot -- the right. 26 And of the olive oil [3shall pour 1the 2priest] upon his hand -- the left. 27 And [3shall sprinkle 1the 2priest] with his finger -- the right from the olive oil, the oil in his hand -- the left, seven times before the  lord. 28 And [3shall put 1the 2priest] of the olive oil being in his hand upon the lobe of the ear of the one being cleansed -- the right, and upon the thumb of his hand -- the right, and upon the big toe of his foot -- the right, on the place of the blood of the trespass offering. 29 And the left over olive oil, being in the hand of the priest, he shall place upon the head of the one being cleansed, and [3shall atone 4for 5him 1the 2priest] before the  lord. 30 And he shall offer one from the turtle-doves, or from the young ones of the pigeons, in so far as [3found 1his 2hand], 31 the one for a sin offering, and the one for a whole burnt-offering with the sacrifice offering. And [3shall atone 1the 2priest] for the one being cleansed before the  lord. 32 This is the law for him in whom is found the infection of the leprosy, and not finding means in his hand enough for his cleansing.

Laws Regarding Leprosy in Houses

33 And the  lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 34 When ever you should enter into the land of the Canaanites, which I give to you for a possession, and I put an infection of leprosy in the houses of the land procured by you; 35 then [5shall come 1one 2from 3the 4house] and shall announce to the priest, saying, Something as an infection has appeared to me in the house. 36 And [3will assign 1the 2priest] to pack up the house before the [2enters 1priest] to look at the infection, that no way [2unclean 1should become] as much as might be in the house. And after these things [3shall enter 1the 2priest] to study the house. 37 And he shall look at the infection. And behold, if the infection is in the walls of the house, with a cavity being greenish or being reddish, and their appearance deep in the walls. 38 And [3coming forth 1the 2priest] from out of the house, at the door of the house, and then [3shall separate 1the 2priest] the house seven days. 39 And [3shall come back again 1the 2priest] on the [2day 1seventh], and he shall look at the house. And behold, if [3was diffused 1the 2infection] in the walls of the house, 40 then [3shall assign 1the 2priest], and they shall take out the stones in which is the infection, and they shall cast them outside the city, into [2place 1an unclean]. 41 And [2the 3house 1they shall scrape] from inside round about, and shall pour out the dust of the scraping outside the city into [2place 1an unclean]. 42 And they shall take stones being scraped of another, and they shall substitute for the stones, and [2dust for plaster 1other] they shall take, and they shall plaster the house. 43 But if [3should come 4again 1the 2infection], and should rise up in the house after the taking away of the stones, and after the scraping the house, and after the plastering, 44 then [3shall enter 1the 2priest] and he shall look. If [6be dispersed 1the 2infection 3in 4the 5house], [2leprosy 1it is a permanent] in the house -- it is unclean. 45 And they shall demolish the house, and its wood, and its stones; and all the plaster dust of the house they shall bring forth outside the city unto [2place 1an unclean]. 46 And the one entering into the house all the days which it is being separated will be unclean until evening. 47 And the one going to bed in the house shall wash his garments, and will be unclean until evening. And the one eating in the house, he shall wash his garments. 48 And if coming, [3should enter 1the 2priest] and look, and behold, [3is not dispersed 1the 2infection] in the house after the plastering the house, that [3shall declare 6cleansed 1the 2priest 4the 5house], for [3is healed 1the 2infection]. 49 And he shall take to purify the house, two small [2birds 1living], and wood of cedar, and twined scarlet, and hyssop. 50 And he shall slay the [2small bird 1one] into [2utensil 1an earthenware] over [2water 1living]. 51 And he shall take the wood of cedar, and the twined scarlet, and the hyssop, and the [2small bird 1living]; and he shall dip them into the blood of the small bird having been slain over [2water 1living]; and he shall sprinkle about with them upon the house seven times. 52 And he shall purify the house with the blood of the small bird, and with the [2water 1living], and with the [2small bird 1living], and with the wood of cedar, and with the hyssop, and with the twined scarlet. 53 And he shall send out the [2small bird 1living] outside the city into the plain. And he shall atone for the house, and it will be clean. 54 This is the law for every infection of leprosy, and outbreak, 55 and the leprosy of a garment, and house, 56 and discoloration, and spot, and shining; 57  to describe the day unclean, and the day it shall be cleansed. This is the law of the leprosy.
