|Leviticus 12 |
1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
2 "Speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'If a woman has conceived and given birth to a man child, then she shall be unclean seven days; like she is to remain separate due to her monthly period for being unclean.
3 In the eighth day the flesh of her male child's foreskin shall be circumcised.
4 Then she shall remain separated for the purification of blood for thirty three days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purification are fulfilled.
5 But if she bears a female child, then she shall be unclean for two weeks, like her monthly period separation: and she shall continue in purification of the blood for sixty six days.
6 And when the days of her purification have been fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a yearling lamb as a burnt offering, and a young pigeon or a turtledove for a sin offering, to the priest at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
7 The priest shall then offer it before the LORD to make an atonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is the law for her who has given birth to a male or a female.
8 And if she is not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtle doves, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.'"
