1, 9, 18, 24, 29, 38The laws and tokens whereby the priest is to be guided in discerning the leprosy in man or woman; 47and in a garment.

1

AND the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,

2

When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a 1*rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like athe plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto bAaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:

3

And the priest shall clook on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is dturned white, and the plague in sight be edeeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and fpronounce him unclean.

4

If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white; then the priest shall gshut up him that hath the plague seven days:

5

And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague in his sight be *at a stay, and the plague spread not in the skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:

6

And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague be somewhat dark, and the plague spread not in the skin, the priest shall hpronounce him clean: it is but a scab: and he ishall wash his clothes, and be clean.

7

But if the scab jspread much *abroad in the skin, after that he hath been seen of the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen of the priest again:

8

And if the priest see that, behold, the scab spreadeth in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a leprosy.

9

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

10

And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the *rising be white in the skin, and it have turned the hair white, kand there be 2*quick raw flesh in the rising;

11

It is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not lshut him up: for he is unclean.

l v.4,5.
12

And if a leprosy break out *abroad in the skin, and the leprosy mcover all the skin of him that hath the plague from his head even to his foot, wheresoever the priest looketh;

13

Then the priest shall consider: and, behold, if the leprosy have covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: it is all turned white: he is clean.

14

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

15

And the priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him to be unclean: for the raw flesh is unclean: it is a leprosy.

16

Or if the raw flesh nturn again, and be changed unto white, he shall come unto the priest;

17

And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the plague be turned into white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: he is clean.

18

¶The flesh also, in which, even in the skin thereof, was a oboil, and is healed,

o Ex. 9.9.
19

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

20

And if, when the priest seeth it, pbehold, it be in sight lower than the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white; the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the boil.

21

But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs therein, and if it be not lower than the skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

22

And if it spread much *abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague.

23

But if the bright qspot stay in his place, and spread not, it is a burning boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

24

¶Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is 3a hot burning, and the *quick flesh that burneth have a white bright spot, somewhat reddish, or white;

25

Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the hair in the bright spot be rturned white, and it be in sight deeper than the skin; it is a leprosy broken out of the burning: wherefore the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

r v.18-21. Ro. 1.27.
26

But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hair in the bright spot, and it be no lower than the other skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

27

And the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: and if it be spread much *abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

28

And if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not in the skin, but it be 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 have a plague upon the shead or the beard;

30

Then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be in sight tdeeper than the skin; and there be in it a yellow thin hair; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry *scall, even a leprosy upon the head or beard.

31

And if the priest look on the plague of the *scall, and, behold, it be not in sight deeper than the skin, and that there is no black hair in it; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague of the scall seven days:

32

And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague: and, behold, if the *scall spread not, and there be in it no yellow hair, and the scall be unot in sight deeper than the skin;

33

He shall be vshaven, but the *scall shall he not shave; and the priest shall shut up him that hath the scall seven days more:

34

And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the *scall: and, behold, if the scall be wnot spread in the skin, nor be in sight deeper than the skin; then the priest shall pronounce him clean: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

35

But if the *scall xspread much in the skin after his cleansing;

36

Then the priest shall look on him: and, behold, if the *scall be spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for yellow hair; he is unclean.

37

But if the *scall be in his sight y*at a stay, and that there is black hair grown up therein; the scall is healed, he is clean: and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

y v.5,6,23,28,32,34. Job 40.4,5. Ro. 7.24.
38

¶If a zman also or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright spots, even white bright spots;

39

Then the priest shall look: and, behold, if the bright spots in the skin of their flesh be darkish white; it is a freckled spot that groweth in the skin; he is clean.

40

And the man whose 4hair is fallen off his head, he is bald; yet is he clean.

41

And he that hath his hair fallen off from the part of his head toward his face, he is forehead bald: yet is he clean.

42

And if there be in the abald 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, behold, if the *rising of the sore be white reddish in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, as the leprosy appeareth 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, bhis clothes shall be rent, and his head bare, and he shall put ca covering upon his upper lip, and shall cry, dUnclean, unclean.

46

All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; e*without the camp shall his habitation be.

47

fThe garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it be a woollen garment, or a linen garment;

48

Whether it be in the *warp, or *woof; of linen, or of woollen; whether in a skin, or in any thing 5made of skin;

49

And if the plague be ggreenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin, either in the *warp, or in the *woof, or in any 6thing of skin; it is a plague of leprosy, and shall be shewed unto the priest:

g ch. 14.37.
50

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

51

And he shall look on the plague on the seventh day: if the plague be hspread 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 ifretting leprosy; it is unclean.

52

He shall therefore jburn that garment, whether *warp or *woof, in woollen or in linen, or any thing of skin, wherein the plague is: for it is a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the fire.

53

And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not spread in the garment, either in the *warp, or in the *woof, or in any thing of skin;

54

Then the priest shall command that they kwash the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more:

55

And the priest shall look on the plague, after that it is washed: and, behold, lif the plague have not changed his colour, and the plague be not spread; it is unclean; thou shalt burn it in the fire; it is fret inward, 7whether it be bare within or *without.

l v.53.
56

And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague be somewhat dark after the washing of it; then he shall rend it out of the garment, or out of the skin, or out of the *warp, or out of the *woof:

57

And if it appear still in the garment, either in the *warp, or in the *woof, or in any thing of skin; it is a spreading plague: thou shalt mburn that wherein the plague is with fire.

58

And the garment, either *warp, or *woof, or whatsoever thing of skin it be, which thou shalt wash, if the plague be departed from them, nthen it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean.

59

This ois the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the *warp, or *woof, or any thing of skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

o v.2-58.
