Cleansing from Skin Diseases

14And the LORD said to Moses,H3068H1696H4872H559 2"The following instructions are for those seeking ceremonial purification from a skin disease. Those who have been healed must be brought to the priest,H8451H6879H3117H2893H935H3548 3who will examine them at a place outside the camp. If the priest finds that someone has been healed of a serious skin disease,H3548H3318H2351H4264H3548H7200H5061H6883H7495H6879 4he will perform a purification ceremony, using two live birds that are ceremonially clean, a stick of cedar, some scarlet yarn, and a hyssop branch.H3548H6680H3947H2891H8147H6833H2416H2889H730H6086H8144H8438H231 5The priest will order that one bird be slaughtered over a clay pot filled with fresh water.H3548H6680H259H6833H7819H2789H3627H2416H4325 6He will take the live bird, the cedar stick, the scarlet yarn, and the hyssop branch, and dip them into the blood of the bird that was slaughtered over the fresh water.H2416H6833H3947H730H6086H8144H8438H231H2881H2416H6833H1818H6833H7819H2416H4325 7The priest will then sprinkle the blood of the dead bird seven times on the person being purified of the skin disease. When the priest has purified the person, he will release the live bird in the open field to fly away.H5137H2891H6883H7651H6471H2891H2416H6833H7971H6440H7704 8"The persons being purified must then wash their clothes, shave off all their hair, and bathe themselves in water. Then they will be ceremonially clean and may return to the camp. However, they must remain outside their tents for seven days.H2891H3526H899H1548H8181H7364H4325H2891H310H935H4264H3427H2351H168H7651H3117 9On the seventh day they must again shave all the hair from their heads, including the hair of the beard and eyebrows. They must also wash their clothes and bathe themselves in water. Then they will be ceremonially clean.H7637H3117H1548H8181H7218H2206H1354H5869H8181H1548H3526H899H7364H1320H4325H2891 10"On the eighth day each person being purified must bring two male lambs and a one-year-old female lamb, all with no defects, along with a grain offering of six quarts of choice flour moistened with olive oil, and a cup of olive oil.H8066H3117H3947H8147H3532H8549H259H3535H1323H8141H8549H7969H6241H5560H4503H1101H8081H259H3849H8081 11Then the officiating priest will present that person for purification, along with the offerings, before the LORD at the entrance of the Tabernacle.H3548H2891H5975H376H2891H6440H3068H6607H168H4150 12The priest will take one of the male lambs and the olive oil and present them as a guilt offering, lifting them up as a special offering before the LORD.H3548H3947H259H3532H7126H817H3849H8081H5130H8573H6440H3068 13He will then slaughter the male lamb in the sacred area where sin offerings and burnt offerings are slaughtered. As with the sin offering, the guilt offering belongs to the priest. It is a most holy offering.H7819H3532H4725H7819H2403H5930H6944H4725H2403H3548H817H6944H6944 14The priest will then take some of the blood of the guilt offering and apply it to the lobe of the right ear, the thumb of the right hand, and the big toe of the right foot of the person being purified.H3548H3947H1818H817H3548H5414H8571H3233H241H2891H931H3233H3027H931H3233H7272 15"Then the priest will pour some of the olive oil into the palm of his own left hand.H3548H3947H3849H8081H3332H3709H3548H8042 16He will dip his right finger into the oil in his palm and sprinkle some of it with his finger seven times before the LORD.H3548H2881H3233H676H8081H8042H3709H5137H8081H676H7651H6471H6440H3068 17The priest will then apply some of the oil in his palm over the blood from the guilt offering that is on the lobe of the right ear, the thumb of the right hand, and the big toe of the right foot of the person being purified.H3499H8081H3709H3548H5414H8571H3233H241H2891H931H3233H3027H931H3233H7272H1818H817 18The priest will apply the oil remaining in his hand to the head of the person being purified. Through this process, the priest will purify the person before the LORD.H3498H8081H3548H3709H5414H7218H2891H3548H3722H6440H3068 19"Then the priest must present the sin offering to purify the person who was cured of the skin disease. After that, the priest will slaughter the burnt offeringH3548H6213H2403H3722H2891H2932H310H7819H5930 20and offer it on the altar along with the grain offering. Through this process, the priest will purify the person who was healed, and the person will be ceremonially clean.H3548H5927H5930H4503H4196H3548H3722H2891 21"But anyone who is too poor and cannot afford these offerings may bring one male lamb for a guilt offering, to be lifted up as a special offering for purification. The person must also bring two quarts of choice flour moistened with olive oil for the grain offering and a cup of olive oil.H1800H3027H5381H3947H259H3532H817H8573H3722H259H6241H5560H1101H8081H4503H3849H8081 22The offering must also include two turtledoves or two young pigeons, whichever the person can afford. One of the pair must be used for the sin offering and the other for a burnt offering.H8147H8449H8147H1121H3123H3027H5381H259H2403H259H5930 23On the eighth day of the purification ceremony, the person being purified must bring the offerings to the priest in the LORD's presence at the entrance of the Tabernacle.H935H8066H3117H2893H3548H6607H168H4150H6440H3068 24The priest will take the lamb for the guilt offering, along with the olive oil, and lift them up as a special offering to the LORD.H3548H3947H3532H817H3849H8081H3548H5130H8573H6440H3068 25Then the priest will slaughter the lamb for the guilt offering. He will take some of its blood and apply it to the lobe of the right ear, the thumb of the right hand, and the big toe of the right foot of the person being purified.H7819H3532H817H3548H3947H1818H817H5414H8571H3233H241H2891H931H3233H3027H931H3233H7272 26"The priest will also pour some of the olive oil into the palm of his own left hand.H3548H3332H8081H3709H3548H8042 27He will dip his right finger into the oil in his palm and sprinkle some of it seven times before the LORD.H3548H5137H3233H676H8081H8042H3709H7651H6471H6440H3068 28The priest will then apply some of the oil in his palm over the blood from the guilt offering that is on the lobe of the right ear, the thumb of the right hand, and the big toe of the right foot of the person being purified.H3548H5414H8081H3709H8571H3233H241H2891H931H3233H3027H931H3233H7272H4725H1818H817 29The priest will apply the oil remaining in his hand to the head of the person being purified. Through this process, the priest will purify the person before the LORD.H3498H8081H3548H3709H5414H7218H2891H3722H6440H3068 30"Then the priest will offer the two turtledoves or the two young pigeons, whichever the person can afford.H6213H259H8449H1121H3123H834H3027H5381 31One of them is for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering, to be presented along with the grain offering. Through this process, the priest will purify the person before the LORD.H3027H5381H259H2403H259H5930H4503H3548H3722H2891H6440H3068 32These are the instructions for purification for those who have recovered from a serious skin disease but who cannot afford to bring the offerings normally required for the ceremony of purification."H8451H5061H6883H3027H5381H2893

Treatment of Contaminated Houses

33Then the LORD said to Moses and Aaron,H3068H1696H4872H175H559 34"When you arrive in Canaan, the land I am giving you as your own possession, I may contaminate some of the houses in your land with mildew.H935H776H3667H5414H272H5414H5061H6883H1004H776H272 35The owner of such a house must then go to the priest and say, 'It appears that my house has some kind of mildew.'H1004H935H5046H3548H559H7200H5061H1004 36Before the priest goes in to inspect the house, he must have the house emptied so nothing inside will be pronounced ceremonially unclean.H3548H6680H6437H1004H3548H935H7200H5061H1004H2930H310H3548H935H7200H1004 37Then the priest will go in and examine the mildew on the walls. If he finds greenish or reddish streaks and the contamination appears to go deeper than the wall's surface,H7200H5061H5061H7023H1004H8258H3422H125H4758H8217H4480H7023 38the priest will step outside the door and put the house in quarantine for seven days.H3548H3318H1004H6607H1004H5462H1004H7651H3117 39On the seventh day the priest must return for another inspection. If he finds that the mildew on the walls of the house has spread,H3548H7725H7637H3117H7200H5061H6581H7023H1004 40the priest must order that the stones from those areas be removed. The contaminated material will then be taken outside the town to an area designated as ceremonially unclean.H3548H6680H2502H68H2004H5061H7993H853H2931H4725H2351H5892 41Next the inside walls of the entire house must be scraped thoroughly and the scrapings dumped in the unclean place outside the town.H1004H7106H1004H5439H8210H6083H7096H2351H5892H2931H4725 42Other stones will be brought in to replace the ones that were removed, and the walls will be replastered.H3947H312H68H935H8478H68H3947H312H6083H2902H1004 43"But if the mildew reappears after all the stones have been replaced and the house has been scraped and replastered,H5061H7725H6524H1004H310H2502H68H310H7096H1004H310H2902 44the priest must return and inspect the house again. If he finds that the mildew has spread, the walls are clearly contaminated with a serious mildew, and the house is defiled.H3548H935H7200H5061H6581H1004H3992H6883H1004H2931 45It must be torn down, and all its stones, timbers, and plaster must be carried out of town to the place designated as ceremonially unclean.H5422H1004H68H6086H6083H1004H3318H2351H5892H2931H4725 46Those who enter the house during the period of quarantine will be ceremonially unclean until evening,H935H1004H3117H5462H2930H6153 47and all who sleep or eat in the house must wash their clothing.H7901H1004H3526H899H398H1004H3526H899 48"But if the priest returns for his inspection and finds that the mildew has not reappeared in the house after the fresh plastering, he will pronounce it clean because the mildew is clearly gone.H3548H935H935H7200H5061H6581H1004H310H1004H2902H3548H1004H2891H5061H7495 49To purify the house the priest must take two birds, a stick of cedar, some scarlet yarn, and a hyssop branch.H3947H2398H1004H8147H6833H730H6086H8144H8438H231 50He will slaughter one of the birds over a clay pot filled with fresh water.H7819H259H6833H2789H3627H2416H4325 51He will take the cedar stick, the hyssop branch, the scarlet yarn, and the live bird, and dip them into the blood of the slaughtered bird and into the fresh water. Then he will sprinkle the house seven times.H3947H730H6086H231H8144H8438H2416H6833H2881H1818H7819H6833H2416H4325H5137H1004H7651H6471 52When the priest has purified the house in exactly this way,H2398H1004H1818H6833H2416H4325H2416H6833H730H6086H231H8144H8438 53he will release the live bird in the open fields outside the town. Through this process, the priest will purify the house, and it will be ceremonially clean.H7971H2416H6833H2351H5892H6440H7704H3722H1004H2891 54"These are the instructions for dealing with serious skin diseases, including scabby sores;H8451H5061H6883H5424 55and mildew, whether on clothing or in a house;H6883H899H1004 56and a swelling on the skin, a rash, or discolored skin.H7613H5597H934 57This procedure will determine whether a person or object is ceremonially clean or unclean. "These are the instructions regarding skin diseases and mildew."H3384H3117H2931H3117H2889H8451H6883
