Leviticus 14

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

 2 "This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought to [a place outside the camp to meet with] the priest;

 3 And the priest shall go out of the camp; and the priest shall look to see if the plague of leprosy has been healed in the leper.

 4 Then shall the priest order brought to himself for him who is to be cleansed two live, clean birds, cedar wood, scarlet cloth, and hyssop:

 5 And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water.

 6 As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water.

 7 He shall then sprinkle upon him who is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the living bird loose into the open field.

 8 And he who is being cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean; and after that he shall come into the camp, and shall stay out of his tent for seven days.

 9 But it shall be on the seventh day that he shall shave all his hair off his head, his beard, and his eyebrows; he shall shave off even all his hair, wash his clothes, and wash his flesh in water; and he shall be clean.

 10 On the eighth day he shall take two male lambs without blemish, and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish, and three tenths of an ephah [bushel] of fine flour for a cereal offering, mingled with oil, and one log [2/3 pint] of oil.

 11 The priest who cleanses the man shall present who is to be made clean, and those things, before the LORD, at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

 12 The priest shall take one male lamb, and offer him for a trespass offering, and the log of oil, and wave them for a wave offering before the LORD.

 13 He shall slay the lamb in the place where he shall kill the sin offering and the burnt offering, in the holy place; for as the sin offering is the priest's, so is the trespass offering; it is most holy.

 14 The priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.

 15 The priest shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it into the palm of his own left hand.

 16 The priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left hand, and shall sprinkle of the oil with his finger seven times before the LORD.

 17 The rest of the oil that is in his hand shall by the priest be put upon the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the blood of the trespass offering.

 18 The remnant of the oil that is in the priest's hand shall be poured upon the head of him who is to be cleansed; and the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD.

 19 The priest shall offer the sin offering, and make an atonement for him who is to be cleansed from his uncleanness; and afterward he shall kill the burnt offering.

 20 The priest shall offer the burnt offering and the cereal offering upon the altar; the priest shall make an atonement for him, and he shall be clean.

 21 And if he, who is to be cleansed, is poor and cannot afford so much; then he shall take one lamb for a trespass offering to be waved, to make an atonement for him, and one tenth deal of fine flour mingled with oil for a meat offering, and a log of oil;

 22 And two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, whatever he is able to purchase; and the one shall be a sin offering, and the other a burnt offering.

 23 And he shall bring them on the eighth day for his cleansing to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, before the LORD.

 24 The priest shall take the lamb of the trespass offering, and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD.

 25 He shall kill the lamb of the trespass offering, and the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.

 26 The priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his own left hand.

 27 The priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil that is in his left hand seven times before the LORD:

 28 The priest shall put of the oil that is in his hand upon the tip of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the place of the blood of the trespass offering:

 29 The rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall put upon the head of him who is to be cleansed, to make an atonement for him before the LORD.

 30 He shall offer the one of the turtledoves, or of the young pigeons, such as he can get;

 31 Even such as he is able to get, the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering, with the meat offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for him who is to be cleansed before the LORD.

 32 This is the law of him in whom is the plague of leprosy, whose hand is not able to get what pertains to his cleansing."

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

 34 "When you have come into the land of Canaan that I give to you for a possession, and I have put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession;

 35 He who owns the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, 'It seems to me there is a plague in the house.'

 36 Then the priest shall command that they empty the house, before the priest goes into it to inspect it so that all that is in the house is not made unclean; and afterward [the house is emptied] the priest shall go in to see the house.

 37 And he shall look on the plague, and if the plague is in the walls of the house with hollow streaks, greenish or reddish, which appear to be under the surface of the wall;

 38 Then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house, and shut up the house seven days.

 39 The priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall look to see if the plague has spread in the walls of the house;

 40 Then the priest shall command that they take away the stones in which the plague is, and they shall cast them into an unclean place without the city.

 41 And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off without the city into an unclean place:

 42 And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of those stones; and he shall take other mortar, and shall plaster the house.

 43 And if the plague comes again, and break out in the house, after that he has taken away the stones, and after he has scraped the house, and after it is newly plastered;

 44 Then the priest shall come and look and if the plague has spread in the house, it is a rotting leprosy in the house; it is unclean.

 45 And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the timbers of it, and all the mortar of the house; and he shall carry them out of the city into an unclean place.

 46 Moreover anyone who goes into the house while it is shut up shall be unclean until the evening.

 47 And he that lies in the house shall wash his clothes; and he that eats in the house shall wash his clothes.

 48 And if the priest shall come in, and look upon it, and, behold, the plague has not spread in the house, after the house was plastered; then the priest shall pronounce the house clean because the plague is healed.

 49 And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, cedar wood, scarlet, and hyssop.

 50 And he shall kill the one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water.

 51 And 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.

 52 And 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:

 53 But he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open fields, and make an atonement for the house; and it shall be clean.

 54 This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and scall,

 55 And for the leprosy of a garment, and of a house,

 56 And for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot.

 57 To instruct when it is unclean, and when it is clean; this is the law of leprosy."
