Leviticus 14

Coverdale(i) 1 And the LORDE spake vnto Moses, and sayde: 2 This is the lawe ouer ye leper, whan he shalbe clensed. He shall come vnto ye prest, 3 and the prest shal go out of the hoost, and loke how the plage of leprosye is healed vpon the leper. 4 And he shal commaunde him that is to be clensed, to take two lyuinge byrdes, which are cleane, and Ceder wodd, and purple woll, and ysope: 5 and shall commaunde the one byrde to be kylled in an earthen vessell ouer sprynginge water. 6 And he shall take the lyuynge byrde with the Ceder wodd, the purple woll, and ysope, and dyppe them in the bloude of the slaine byrde vpon the springynge water, 7 and sprenkle it seuen tymes vpon him that must be clensed from ye leprosy. And so clense him, and let the lyuynge byrde flye at libertye in to the felde. 8 But he that is clensed, shal wash his clothes, and shaue of all his hayre, and bathe him self with water, so is he cleane. Afterwarde let him go in to the hoost, yet shall he tarye without his tent seuen dayes. 9 And vpon the seuenth daye shal he shaue of all ye hayre vpon his heade, vpo his beerde, vpon his browes, so that all the hayre be shauen of, and he shall wash his clothes and bathe his flesh in water, then is he cleane. 10 And vpo the eight daye shal he take two lambes without blemysh, and a shepe of a yeare olde without blemysh, and thre tenth deales of fyne floure for a meatofferynge, myngled with oyle, & a Logg of oyle. 11 The shall the prest presente him that is clensed and these thinges before the LORDE, before the dore of the Tabernacle of wytnesse, 12 and shal take ye one lambe, and offre it for trespace offerynge, with the Logg of oyle, & shall waue them, before ye LORDE, 13 and afterwarde slaye the lambe, where the synofferynge and burntofferynge are slayne, namely, in the holy place. For as the synofferynge, so is the trespace offerynge the prestes also, for it is most holy. 14 And the prest shall take of the bloude of the trespace offerynge, and put it vpon the typpe of ye right eare of him that is clesed, and vpon the thombe of his right hande, and vpon the greate too of his right fote. 15 Afterwarde shall he take of the oyle out of the Logg, and poure it in to his awne left hande, 16 and dyppe his right fynger in the oyle that is in his left hande, and sprenkle the oyle with his fynger seuen tymes before the LORDE. 17 As for the remnaunt of the oyle in his hande, he shall put it vpon the typpe of the right eare of him that is clensed, and vpon the thombe of his right hande, & vpon the greate too of his right fote, euen aboue vpon the bloude of the trespace offerynge. 18 But the remnaunt of the oyle in his hande, shall he poure vpon the heade of him that is clensed, and make an attonement for him before the LORDE. 19 And he shall make the synofferynge, and reconcyle him that is clesed, because of his vnclennesse. And afterwarde shall he sleye the burntofferynge, 20 and shal offre it vpon the altare with the meatofferynge, and make an attonement for him, & than is he cleane. 21 But yf he be poore, and getteth not so moch with his hande, then let him take one lambe for a trespaceofferynge to waue it, to make an attonement for him, and a tenth deale of fyne floure myngled with oyle for a meatofferynge, and a Logg of oyle, 22 & two turtyll doues, or two yonge pigeons which he is able to get with his hande, let the one be a synofferynge, the other a burntofferynge: 23 and let him brynge them vpon the eight daye of his clensynge vnto the prest before the dore of the Tabernacle of wytnesse before the LORDE. 24 Then shall the prest take the lambe for the synofferynge, and the Logg of oyle, and shall waue them all before the LORDE, 25 and sley the lambe of the trespace offerynge: and take of ye bloude of the same trespaceofferynge, and put it vpon the typpe of the righte eare of him that is clensed, and vpon the thombe of his right hande, and vpon the greate too of his righte fote, 26 and poure of the oyle in to his awne lefte hande, 27 and with his right fynger sprenkle the oyle that is in his left hande, seuen tymes before the LORDE. 28 As for the remnaunt of the oyle in his hande, he shal put it vpon the typpe of the right eare of him that is clensed, and vpon the thombe of his right hande, & vpon the greate too of his right fote, euen aboue vpo ye bloude of ye trespaceofferynge. 29 The other oyle in his hade shal he poure vpo ye heade of him yt is clensed, to make an attonement for him before the LORDE. 30 And afterwarde of the one of the turtill doues or yonge pigeons (acordinge as his handes are able to get) 31 he shal make a synofferynge, of ye other a burntofferynge, with the meatofferynge: and so shal the prest make an attonemet for him that is clensed before the LORDE. 32 Let this be the lawe for the leper, which is not able with his hande to get, that belongeth vnto his clensynge. 33 And the LORDE spake vnto Moses and Aaron, and sayde: 34 Whan ye are come in to the lande of Canaan, which I geue you to possesse: and yf there happen a plage of leprosy in any house of youre possession, 35 then shal he that oweth the house, come and tell the prest, and saye: Me thynke there is as it were a plage of leprosy in my house. 36 Then shal the prest commaunde to rydde all thynge out of the house or euer the prest go in to se ye plage, lest all that is in the house be made vncleane. Afterwarde shall ye prest go in, to se the plage. 37 Now whan he loketh, and fyndeth, yt there be holowe strakes yalowe or reedish in the walles of the house, & they seme to be lower then the wall besyde, 38 then shall he go out at the dore of the house, and shut vp the house for seuen dayes. 39 And vpon the seuenth daye whan he commeth, and seyth that the plage hath fretten farther in the walles of the house, 40 the shall he commaunde to breake out the stones wherin the plage is, & to cast the in a foule place without the cite, 41 & the house to be scraped within rounde aboute, and the dust yt is scraped of, to be poured without ye cite in an vncleane place, 42 & to take other stones, and put them in the place of the other, and to take other playster, and playster the house. 43 Whan the plage then commeth agayne, and breaketh forth in the house, after yt the stones are broke out, the playster scraped of, and the house playsterd of the new, 44 the shal the prest go in: and whan he seyth that the plage hath fretten farther in the house, then is there surely a fretinge leprosy in the house, and it is vncleane: 45 therfore shal the house be broken downe, both the stones, and ye tymber and all the dust of the house, and shal be caried out of the cite in to an vncleane place. 46 And who so goeth into the house, whyle it is shut vp, is vncleane vntyll ye euen. 47 And he yt lyeth therin, or eateth therin, shal wash his clothes. 48 But yf the prest se (wha he goeth in) that this plage hath frett no farther in the house, after that the house is new playsterd, the shal he iudge it to be cleane, for the plage is healed. 49 And to a synofferinge for the house, he shal take two byrdes, Ceder wodd, & purple woll, and ysope, 50 and slaye the one byrde in an erthen vessell vpon sprynginge water, 51 and shall take the Ceder wodd, the purple woll, the ysope, and the lyuinge byrde, & dyppe them in the bloude of the slayne byrde vpon the sprynginge water, and sprenkle the house with all seue tymes: 52 and so shal he purifie the house with the bloude of the byrde, with the springinge water, with the lyuinge byrde, with the Ceder wodd, with the ysope, and with the purple woll. 53 And the lyuynge byrde shall he let flye at libertye out of the towne in to the felde, & make an attonement for the house, and then is it cleane. 54 This is the lawe ouer all maner plage of leprosye & skyrfe, 55 ouer ye leprosye of clothes and of houses, 56 ouer sores, scabbes, and glisterynge whyte, 57 that it maye be knowne, whan eny thinge is vncleane or cleane. This is ye lawe of leprosy.
