Numbers 19:2-9

Thomson(i) 2 This is the purification of the law in respect to all the things which the Lord hath enjoined, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, and let them bring thee a red heifer, without blemish, which hath no spot in her, and on which there hath never been put a yoke. 3 And thou shalt give her to Eleazar the priest; and they shall lead her out of the camp, to a clean place, and kill her in his presence. 4 And Eleazar shall take some of the blood thereof, and shall sprinkle, over against the front of the tabernacle of the testimony, some of the blood thereof seven times. 5 Then they shall burn her in his sight; and when her skin, and her flesh, and her blood, and dung, are burned, 6 the priest shall take cedar wood, and hyssop, and scarlet yarn, and throw them into the midst of the cinders of the heifer. 7 Then the priest shall wash his clothes, and wash his whole body with water, and, after that, he shall come into 8 the camp. And the priest shall be unclean until the evening. And he who burned her shall wash his clothes, and wash his body with water, and be unclean until evening. 9 And a man who is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer, and lay them without the camp, in a clean place, and water of sprinkling shall be kept in store for the congregation of Israel. It is a purification.
