Leviticus 13

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 1 And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,

 2 "When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it is in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy;1 then he shall be brought to Aaron the priest, or to one of his sons the priests.

 3 The priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh, and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight is deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy; and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

 4 If the bright spot is white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight is not deeper than the skin, and its hair has not turned white; then the priest shall bind up the spot and isolate him who has the plague seven days.

 5 Then the priest shall look on him the seventh day, and if the plague in his sight has stabilized and has not spread in the skin; then the priest shall shall bind up the spot and isolate him up seven more days.

 6 The priest shall look on him again the seventh day; and if the plague is somewhat dark, and the plague has not spread in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean; it is only a scab. He shall wash his clothes and be clean.

 7 But if the scab has spread much further in the skin, after he has been seen by the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen by the priest again.

 8 And if the priest sees that the scab has spread in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean with leprosy.

 9 When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought to the priest;

 10 And the priest shall see him; and, behold, if the rising is white in the skin, and it has turned the hair white, and there is quick raw flesh in the rising;

 11 It is a chronic leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean; and he shall not bind the spot up, for he is unclean.

 12 If a leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the leprosy cover all the skin of him who has the plague from his head even to his foot, wherever the priest looks;

 13 Then the priest shall consider if the leprosy has covered all his flesh, in which case he shall pronounce him clean [uncontagious] he who has the plague; because it has all turned white, he is clean [uncontagious].

 14 But when raw flesh appears in him, he shall be unclean.

 15 The priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him to be unclean for the raw flesh is unclean; it is a leprosy.

 16 If the raw flesh changes again to be white, he shall come to the priest;

 17 The priest shall see him, and if the plague be turned into white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that has the plague; he is clean.

 18 If there has been a boil in the skin that has healed,

 19 And in the place of the boil there be a white rising, or a bright spot, white, and somewhat reddish, and it is shown to the priest;

 20 And if the priest sees it to be a depression in the skin, and the hair of it is turned white, the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the boil.

 21 But if the priest looks on it, and there are no white hairs in it, and if it is not a depression in the skin, but is somewhat dark; then the priest shall bind it up for seven days.

 22 If it then spreads much in area of the skin, the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is a plague.

 23 But if the bright spot stays in his place and does not spread, it is a burning boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

 24 Or if there is any flesh, in the skin where there is a hot burning, and the quick flesh that burns has a white bright spot, somewhat reddish, or white;

 25 Then the priest shall look upon it; and if the hair in the bright spot has turned white, and it is in a depression of the skin; it is a leprosy broken out of the burning. Therefore the priest shall pronounce him unclean because it is the plague of leprosy.

 26 But if the priest looks on it, and there is no white hair in the bright spot, and it not a depression in the skin, but is somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut bind it up for seven days:

 27 The priest shall look upon him the seventh day; and if it has spread much further in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean because it is the plague of leprosy.

 28 If the bright spot stays in place and does not spread in the skin, but it is somewhat dark; it is a rising of the burning, and the priest shall pronounce him clean for it is an inflammation of the burning.

 29 If a man or woman has a plague upon the head or the beard;

 30 Then the priest shall see the plague; and if it is in a depression of the skin; and there is a yellow thin hair; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is a dry scall [mange-like type] of leprosy upon the head or beard.

 31 And if the priest look on the plague of the scall, and, behold, it is not a depression in the skin, and there is no black hair in it; then the priest shall bind up the scall for seven days.

 32 In the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague; and if the scall has not spread and there is no yellow hair in it, with no depression in the skin;

 33 He shall be shaven, but he shall not shave the scall; and the priest shall bind up the scall for scall seven more days.

 34 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall; and if the scall has not spread in the skin and is not in a depression of the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean; and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

 35 But if the scall has spread much in the skin after his cleansing;

 36 Then the priest shall look on him; and if the scall has spread in the skin, the priest need not look further for yellow hair; he is unclean.

 37 But if the scall has not spread and there is black hair grown up in it; the scall is healed, he is clean; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

 38 If a man also or a woman has in the skin of their flesh bright spots, even white bright spots;

 39 Then the priest shall look; and if the bright spots in the skin of their flesh are darkish white; it is a freckled spot that grows in the skin; he is clean.

 40 The man whose hair has fallen off his head to become bald is clean.

 41 And he whose hair has fallen off from the part of his head toward his face,leaving his forehead bald, is clean.

 42 And if there is on the bald head, or bald forehead, a white reddish sore; it is a leprosy sprung up in his bald head, or his bald forehead.

 43 Then the priest shall look upon it; and if the rising of the sore is white reddish in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, as the leprosy appears in the skin of the flesh;

 44 He is a leprous man, he is unclean; the priest shall pronounce him utterly unclean; his plague is in his head.

 45 And the leper in whom the plague is: his clothes shall be torn, his hair shall hang down on his head, he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and he shall cry, 'Unclean, unclean.'

 46 He shall be defiled all the days in which the plague shall be in him for he is unclean. He shall dwell alone outside the camp, where his home shall be.

 47 The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it be a woolen garment, or a linen garment;

 48 Whether it be in the warp, or woof; of linen, or of woolen; whether in a skin, or in anything made of skin;

 49 And if the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin; it is a plague of leprosy, and shall be showed to the priest:

 50 And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up it that has the plague seven days:

 51 And he shall look on the plague on the seventh day; if the plague has spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in a skin, or in any work that is made of skin; the plague is a rotting leprosy; it is unclean.

 52 He shall therefore burn that garment, whether warp or woof, in woolen or in linen, or anything of skin, in which the plague is; for it is a rotting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the fire.

 53 And if the priest shall look, and if the plague has not spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin;

 54 Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing in which the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more.

 55 And the priest shall look on the plague, after it has been washed; and if the plague has not changed color though it has not spread; it is unclean; you shall burn it in the fire; it is a rotting inward, whether it is inside or outside.

 56 And if the priest finds the plague is somewhat dark after the washing of it; then he shall tear it out of the garment, or out of the skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof;

 57 And if it still appears in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin; it is a spreading plague. You shall burn that in which the plague is with fire.

 58 And the garment, either warp, or woof, or whatever thing of skin it is, which you shall wash, if the plague has departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean.

 59 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woolen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or anything of skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

_______________________________________

1 All this discussion about leprosy is the shadow of sin; the spiritual equivalent of leprosy is sin. Anyone who continues to sin is to be expelled from the congregation of the true church of Christ:

But now I write to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of [Christian] brother if he is known to be guilty of immorality or greed, or is an idolater [whose soul is devoted to anything that usurps the place of God, and how they spend their free time defines tp what they are devoted], or is a person with a foul tongue [railing, abusing, reviling, slandering], or is a drunkard or a swindler or a robber. You must not so much as eat with such a person. 1 Cor 5:11

So any, who call themselves Christians, but are guilty of immorality, or devotion to anything except God, or greed, or cursing, or lying, or outbursts of anger, or drunkenness, or dishonesty, or theft; we should not associate with them or even eat a meal with them. Now if you are not supposed to eat with them, how much less should you fellowship with them is some sect meeting?
