"Any man who has a bodily discharge is ceremonially unclean.H1696H1121H3478H559H376H376H2100H1320H2101H2931 3This defilement is caused by his discharge, whether the discharge continues or stops. In either case the man is unclean.H2932H2101H1320H7325H2101H1320H2856H2101H2932 4Any bed on which the man with the discharge lies and anything on which he sits will be ceremonially unclean.H4904H7901H2100H2930H3627H3427H2930 5So if you touch the man's bed, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.H376H5060H4904H3526H899H7364H4325H2930H6153 6If you sit where the man with the discharge has sat, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.H3427H3627H3427H2100H3526H899H7364H4325H2930H6153 7If you touch the man with the discharge, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.H5060H1320H2100H3526H899H7364H4325H2930H6153 8If the man spits on you, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.H2100H7556H2889H3526H899H7364H4325H2930H6153 9Any saddle blanket on which the man rides will be ceremonially unclean.H4817H7392H2100H2930 10If you touch anything that was under the man, you will be unclean until evening. You must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.H5060H2930H6153H5375H3526H899H7364H4325H2930H6153 11If the man touches you without first rinsing his hands, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.H5060H2100H7857H3027H4325H3526H899H7364H4325H2930H6153 12Any clay pot the man touches must be broken, and any wooden utensil he touches must be rinsed with water.H3627H2789H5060H2100H7665H3627H6086H7857H4325 13"When the man with the discharge is healed, he must count off seven days for the period of purification. Then he must wash his clothes and bathe himself in fresh water, and he will be ceremonially clean.H2100H2891H2101H5608H7651H3117H2893H3526H899H7364H1320H2416H4325H2891 14On the eighth day he must get two turtledoves or two young pigeons and come before the LORD at the entrance of the Tabernacle and give his offerings to the priest.H8066H3117H3947H8147H8449H8147H1121H3123H935H6440H3068H6607H168H4150H5414H3548 15The priest will offer one bird for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. Through this process, the priest will purify the man before the LORD for his discharge.H3548H6213H259H2403H259H5930H3548H3722H6440H3068H2101 16"Whenever a man has an emission of semen, he must bathe his entire body in water, and he will remain ceremonially unclean until the next evening.H376H2233H7902H3318H7364H1320H4325H2930H6153 17Any clothing or leather with semen on it must be washed in water, and it will remain unclean until evening.H899H5785H2233H7902H3526H4325H2930H6153 18After a man and a woman have sexual intercourse, they must each bathe in water, and they will remain unclean until the next evening.H802H376H7901H2233H7902H7364H4325H2930H6153 19"Whenever a woman has her menstrual period, she will be ceremonially unclean for seven days. Anyone who touches her during that time will be unclean until evening.H802H2100H2101H1320H1818H5079H7651H3117H5060H2930H6153 20Anything on which the woman lies or sits during the time of her period will be unclean.H7901H5079H2930H3427H2930 21If any of you touch her bed, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.H5060H4904H3526H899H7364H4325H2930H6153 22If you touch any object she has sat on, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.H5060H3627H3427H3526H899H7364H4325H2930H6153 23This includes her bed or any other object she has sat on; you will be unclean until evening if you touch it.H4904H3627H3427H5060H2930H6153 24If a man has sexual intercourse with her and her blood touches him, her menstrual impurity will be transmitted to him. He will remain unclean for seven days, and any bed on which he lies will be unclean.H376H7901H7901H5079H2930H7651H3117H4904H7901H2930 25"If a woman has a flow of blood for many days that is unrelated to her menstrual period, or if the blood continues beyond the normal period, she is ceremonially unclean. As during her menstrual period, the woman will be unclean as long as the discharge continues.H802H2100H2101H1818H7227H3117H3808H6256H5079H2100H5921H5079H3117H2101H2932H3117H5079H2931 26Any bed she lies on and any object she sits on during that time will be unclean, just as during her normal menstrual period.H4904H7901H3117H2101H4904H5079H3627H3427H2931H2932H5079 27If any of you touch these things, you will be ceremonially unclean. You must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.H5060H2930H3526H899H7364H4325H2930H6153 28"When the woman's bleeding stops, she must count off seven days. Then she will be ceremonially clean.H2891H2101H5608H7651H3117H310H2891 29On the eighth day she must bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons and present them to the priest at the entrance of the Tabernacle.H8066H3117H3947H8147H8449H8147H1121H3123H935H3548H6607H168H4150 30The priest will offer one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. Through this process, the priest will purify her before the LORD for the ceremonial impurity caused by her bleeding.H3548H6213H259H2403H259H5930H3548H3722H6440H3068H2101H2932 31"This is how you will guard the people of Israel from ceremonial uncleanness. Otherwise they would die, for their impurity would defile my Tabernacle that stands among them.H5144H1121H3478H2932H4191H2932H2930H4908H8432 32These are the instructions for dealing with anyone who has a bodily discharge—a man who is unclean because of an emission of semenH8451H2100H2233H7902H3318H2930 33or a woman during her menstrual period. It applies to any man or woman who has a bodily discharge, and to a man who has sexual intercourse with a woman who is ceremonially unclean."H1739H5079H2100H2101H2145H5347H376H7901H2931
