Leviticus 15

CHAPTER 15

Laws Regarding Body Flows

And the  lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, Speak to the sons of Israel! And you shall say to them, The man, a man in whom ever should have a flow from out of his body, his flow is unclean. And this is the law of his uncleanness. Flowing semen from out of his body, from out of the flow, in which [2concocted 1his body], [2is through 3this flow 1his uncleanness] in him. Every bed upon which ever he should go to bed upon it, the one having a seminal emission, it is unclean; and every item upon which ever he should sit upon it, the one having a seminal emission, it is unclean. And a man who ever should touch his bed, shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and shall be unclean until evening. And the one sitting down upon the item, upon what ever [3should sit 4upon 5it 1the 2one having a seminal emission], he shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and he will be unclean until evening. And the one touching the flesh of the one having a seminal emission, he shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and he will be unclean until evening. And if [3should salivate 1the 2one having a seminal emission] upon one that is clean, that person shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and he will be unclean until evening. And every saddle upon which [3should 4mount 5upon 6it 1the 2one having a seminal emission], it will be unclean until evening. 10 And every one touching from all as much as might be underneath him, he will be unclean until evening. And the one lifting them, he shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and will be unclean until evening. 11 And of as many as should touch the one having a seminal emission, and his hands have not been washed in water, he shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and he will be unclean until evening. 12 And [2item 1an earthenware] of which ever [3should have touched 1the 2one having a seminal emission], it shall be broken. And every [2item 1wooden] shall be washed in water, and it will be clean. 13 And if [3should be cleansed 1the 2one having a seminal emission] from his flow, then he shall count out to himself seven days for his cleansing; and he shall wash his garments, and shall bathe his body [2water 1in living], and he will be clean. 14 And on the [2day 1eighth] he shall take to himself two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, and he shall bring them before the  lord, to the doors of the tent of the testimony, and he shall give them to the priest. 15 And [3shall offer 4them 1the 2priest] -- one for a sin offering, and one for a whole burnt-offering. And [3shall atone 4for 5him 1the 2priest] before the  lord for his flow. 16 And a man who should come forth from his marriage-bed of issuing semen, shall bathe in water all his body, and he will be unclean until evening. 17 And every garment, and every skin, upon which ever might be upon it of the marriage-bed of semen, that it shall be washed in water, and will be unclean until evening. 18 And a wife, if [2should have gone to bed 1a husband] with her in a marriage-bed of semen, that they shall bathe in water, and they will be unclean until evening. 19 And a woman whoever might be flowing blood, when [3shall be 2flow 1her] in her body, seven days she will be in her menstruation; every one touching her will be unclean until evening. 20 And everything upon what ever she should lay herself upon it, in her menstruation, it will be unclean; and everything upon what ever she should sit herself upon it, it will be unclean. 21 And all who ever should touch her bed, he shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and will be unclean until evening. 22 And every one touching any item upon which ever she should sit upon it, he shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in water, and shall be unclean until evening. 23 And if [2in 3her bed 1being], or upon the item of which ever she should sit upon it, in its touching her, it shall be unclean until evening. 24 And if [3in her bed 2should bed down 1any one] with her, and [2should be 1her uncleanness] upon him, he shall be unclean seven days. And every bed upon which ever he should go to bed upon it, it shall be unclean. 25 And a woman if she should flow a flow of blood [2days 1many], not in the time of her menstruation; if also it should flow after her menstruation, all the days of the flow of her uncleanness shall be just as the days of her menstruation -- she shall be unclean. 26 And every bed upon of which ever she should go to bed upon it all the days of her flow, [3as 4the 5bed 6of her menstruation 1it will be 2to her]. And every item upon which ever she should sit upon it, it shall be unclean, according to the uncleanness of her menstruation. 27 And every man touching her, he shall be unclean, and shall wash his garments, and he shall bathe in water, and he shall be unclean until evening. 28 But if she should be cleansed from her flow, then she shall count out to herself seven days, and after this she shall be cleansed. 29 And the [2day 1eighth] she shall take for herself two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, and she shall bring them to the priest to the door of the tent of the testimony. 30 And [3shall offer 1the 2priest] the one for a sin offering, and the one for a whole burnt-offering. And [3shall atone 4for 5her 1the 2priest] before the  lord of the flow of her uncleanness. 31 And [5be reverent 1you shall make 2the 3sons 4of Israel] because of their uncleannesses. And they shall not die on account of their uncleanness, in their defiling my tent, the one among them. 32 This is the law of the one having a seminal emission. Even if one should come forth from his marriage-bed of semen, so as to be defiled by it, 33 and the one hemorrhaging in her menstruation, and the one having a seminal emission in his flow to the male or the female, and to the husband if he should go to bed with one sitting apart.
