LEVITICUS

and he that eateth in the house shall wash his clothes. 48And if the priest shall come in, and look, and, behold, the plague hath not spread in the house, after the house was plastered; then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the plague is healed. 49And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar-wood, and scarlet, and hyssop. 50And he shall kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water. 51And he shall take the cedar-wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird, and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times. 52And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, and with the running water, and with the living bird, and with the cedar-wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet. 53But he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open field; so shall he make atonement for the house; and it shall be clean.

54This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and for a scall; 55and for the leprosy of a garment, and for a house; 56and for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot; 57to teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean; this is the law of leprosy.


15And the Lord spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying: 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them:

When any man hath an issue out of his flesh, his issue is unclean. 3And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his flesh run with his issue, or his flesh be stopped from his issue, it is his uncleanness. 4Every bed whereon he that hath the issue lieth shall be unclean; and every thing whereon he sitteth shall be unclean. 5And whosoever toucheth his bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 6And he that sitteth on any thing whereon he that hath the issue sat shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 7And he that toucheth the flesh of him that hath the issue shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 8And if he that hath the issue spit upon him that is clean, then he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 9And what saddle soever he that hath the issue rideth upon shall be unclean. 10And whosoever toucheth any thing that was under him shall be unclean until the even; and he that beareth those things shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 11And whomsoever he that hath the issue toucheth, without having rinsed his hands in water, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 12And the earthen vessel, which he that hath the issue toucheth, shall be broken; and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water. 13And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue, then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes; and he shall bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean. 14And on the eighth day he shall take to him two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, and come before the Lord unto the door of the tent of meeting, and give them unto the priest. 15And the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering; and the priest shall make atonement for him before the Lord for his issue.
