Leviticus 12 ©

1 The purification of a woman after childbirth: 6 her offerings for her purifying.


AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,


Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a awoman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.


And in the beighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.


And she shall then ccontinue in the blood of her purifying dthree and thirty days; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be fulfilled.

d Lu. 3.23; 22; 23.

But if she bear ea maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and six days.


And fwhen the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she gshall bring 1a lamb of the first year for a burnt offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest:


Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an hatonement for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is the law for her that hath born ia male or a female.


And jif 2she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two *turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering: kand the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.
