Leviticus 13:1-59

1 Then* Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 2 "When a person* has on his body's skin a swelling or an epidermal eruption or a spot and it becomes* an infectious skin disease on his body's skin, then* he shall be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons the priests. 3 And the priest shall examine the infection on his body's skin, and if the hair in the infection turns white and the appearance of the infection is deeper than his body's skin, it is an infectious skin disease, and the priest shall examine it, and he shall declare him unclean. 4 But* if a spot is white on his body's skin and its appearance is not deeper than the skin and its hair does not turn white, then* the priest shall confine the afflicted person for seven days. 5 And the priest shall examine it on the seventh day, and if,* in his eyes, the infection has stayed unchanged, the infection has not spread on the skin, then* the priest shall confine him for seven days a second time. 6 And the priest shall examine him on the seventh day for a second time, and if* the infection has faded and the infection has not spread on the skin, then* the priest shall declare him clean—it is an epidermal eruption; and he shall wash his garments, and so he shall be clean. 7 But* if the epidermal eruption spreads further on the skin after showing himself to the priest for his cleansing, then* he shall appear a second time to the priest. 8 And the priest shall examine it,* and if* the epidermal eruption has spread on the skin, then* the priest shall declare him unclean—it is an infectious skin disease. 9 "When an infectious skin disease is on a person and he is brought to the priest, 10 the priest shall examine it,* and if* a white swelling is on the skin and it turns the hair white and raw flesh* is in the swelling, 11 it is a chronic infectious skin disease on his body's skin, and the priest shall declare him unclean; he shall not confine him, because he is unclean. 12 And if the infectious skin disease breaks out all over on the skin and the infectious skin disease covers all of the afflicted person's skin from his head to his feed, so far as the priest can see,* 13 then* the priest shall examine it,* and if* the infectious skin disease covers his whole body, then* he shall pronounce the afflicted person clean—all of it has turned white; he is clean. 14 But* whenever* raw flesh* appears on him, he shall become unclean. 15 And the priest shall examine the raw flesh,* and he shall pronounce him unclean—the raw flesh* is unclean; it is an infectious skin disease. 16 Or, when the raw flesh* returns and it has changed to white, then* he shall come to the priest, 17 and the priest shall examine him, and if* the infection has changed to white, then* the priest shall pronounce the afflicted person clean—he is clean. 18 "And when someone's body has* a skin sore on his skin and it is healed 19 and a white swelling or a pinkish* spot appears in the skin sore's place, then* he shall show himself to the priest. 20 And the priest shall examine it,* and if* its appearance is deeper than the skin and its hair has changed to white, then* the priest shall declare him unclean—it is an infectious skin disease; it has broken out in the skin sore. 21 And if the priest examines it and if* there is no white hair in it and it is not deeper than the skin and it is faded, then* the priest shall confine him for seven days. 22 But* if it has spread further on the skin, then* the priest shall declare him unclean—it is an infection. 23 But* if the spot has stayed unchanged, it has not spread, it is the skin sore's scar, so* the priest shall declare him clean. 24 "Or when a body has* a burn-spot from* fire on its skin and the raw flesh* of the burn-spot is pinkish* or white, 25 then* the priest shall examine it, and if* the hair turns white in the spot and its appearance is deeper than the skin, it is an infectious skin disease—it has broken out in the burn-spot; so* the priest shall declare him unclean—it is an infectious skin disease. 26 But* if the priest examines it and if* there is not white hair in the spot and it is not deeper than the skin and it is faded, then* the priest shall confine him for seven days. 27 And the priest shall examine him on the seventh day; if it has spread further on the skin, then* the priest shall declare him unclean—it is an infectious skin disease. 28 But* if it the spot has stayed unchanged in its place, it has not spread on the skin and it is faded, then it is the burn-spot's swelling, so* the priest shall declare him clean, because it is the burn-spot's scar. 29 "And when a man or a woman has* an infection on the head or in the beard, 30 then* the priest shall examine the infection, and if* its appearance is deeper than the skin and in it is thin bright red hair, then* the priest shall declare it unclean—it is a diseased area of skin; it is an infectious skin disease of the head or the beard. 31 But* if the priest examines the diseased area of the skin's infection and if* its appearance is not deeper than the skin and there is no black hair in it, then* the priest shall confine the afflicted person with the diseased area of skin for seven days. 32 And the priest shall examine the infection on the seventh day, and if* the diseased area of skin has not spread and it does not have bright red hair in it and the diseased area of the skin's appearance is not deeper than the skin, 33 then* he shall shave himself, but* he shall not shave the diseased area of skin, and the priest shall confine the person with* the diseased area of skin a second time for seven days. 34 And the priest shall examine the diseased area of skin on the seventh day, and if* the diseased area has not spread on the skin and its appearance is not deeper than the skin, then* the priest shall pronounce him clean, and he shall wash his garments, and he shall be clean. 35 But* if the diseased area of skin has not spread further on the skin after his cleansing, 36 then* the priest shall examine him, and if* the diseased area of skin has spread on the skin, the priest shall not inspect for bright* red hair—he is unclean. 37 But* if, in his eyes, the diseased area of skin has stayed unchanged and black hair has grown in it, the diseased area of skin is healed—he is clean, and the priest shall pronounce him clean. 38 "And when a man or a woman has* spots on their body's skin, white spots, 39 then* the priest shall examine them,* and if* the spots on their body's skin are a faded white, it is a skin rash; it has broken out on the skin—it is clean. 40 "And if a man becomes bald, his head is bald, he is clean. 41 And if he becomes bald from his forehead,* his head is bald, he is clean. 42 But* if a pinkish* infection occurs* on the bald spot or on the bald forehead, it is an infectious skin disease that sprouts on his bald spot or on his bald forehead. 43 So* the priest shall examine him, and if* the infection's swelling is pinkish* on his bald spot or on his bald forehead, like the appearance of an infectious skin disease on* the body, 44 he is a man afflicted with a skin disease—he is unclean; the priest certainly shall declare him unclean—his infection is on his head. 45 "As for* the person who is afflicted with a skin disease, his garments must be torn and his hair* must be allowed to hang loosely, and he must cover his upper lip, and he must call out, 'Unclean! Unclean!' 46 For all the days during which the infection is on him, he shall be unclean; he must live alone; his dwelling must be outside the camp."* 47 "And when the garment has* an infectious skin disease* on it, on a wool garment* or on a linen garment,* 48 or on woven material or on a linen fabric, or* on wool or on leather or on any work of leather, 49 and if the infection is yellowish green or reddish on the garment or on the leather or on the woven material or on the fabric or on any leather object,* it is an infectious skin disease* and it shall be shown to the priest. 50 And the priest shall examine the infection, and he shall confine the infected article for seven days. 51 And he shall examine the infection on the seventh day; if the infection has spread on the garment or on the woven material or on the fabric or on the leather, for any work for which the leather is used, the infection is a destructive skin disease*—it is unclean. 52 And he shall burn the garment or the woven material or the fabric, whether wool or linen,* or any leather object that has* the infection, because it is an infectious skin disease,* which is destructive—it must be burned in the fire. 53 "But* if the priest examines it* and if* the infection has not spread on the garment or on the woven material or on the fabric or on any leather object, 54 then* the priest shall command, and someone* shall wash that on which the infection is, and he shall confine it a second time for seven days. 55 And the priest shall examine it* after the infection has been washed off, and if* the infection has not changed its outward appearance and the infection has not spread, it is unclean; he must burn it in the fire; it is a fungus on its back or on its front. 56 But* if the priest examines it* and if* the infection is faded after it has been washed off, then* he shall tear it from the garment or from the leather or from the woven material or from the fabric. 57 And if it appears again on the garment or on the woven material or on the fabric or on any leather object, it is spreading; you* must burn in the fire that which has the infection in it. 58 And the garment or the woven material or the fabric or any leather object that he might wash and the infection is removed from them then* shall be washed a second time, and it shall be clean." 59 This is the regulation of the infectious skin disease* in* the wool garment or the linen or the woven material or the fabric or any leather object to declare it clean or to declare it unclean.

Numbers 5:1-3

1 Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "Command the Israelites:* they must send everyone from the camp who is afflicted with a rash,* everyone with a fluid discharge, and everyone unclean through contact with a corpse. 3 You will send away both male and female;* you will send them outside the camp.* They must not make unclean their camps where I am dwelling in their midst."

13 And extending his* hand he touched him, saying, "I am willing; be clean." And immediately the leprosy went away from him. 14 And he ordered him, "Tell no one, but go and* show yourself to the priest and bring the offering* for your cleansing just as Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.

Leviticus 14:1-57

1 Then* Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "This is the regulation of the person afflicted with a skin disease at the time of* his cleansing. And he shall be brought to the priest, 3 and the priest shall go outside the camp,* and the priest shall examine him,* and if* the skin disease's infection is healed on* the afflicted person, 4 then* the priest shall command, and he shall take two living, clean birds and cedar wood* and a crimson thread* and hyssop for the one who presents himself for cleansing. 5 Then* the priest shall command someone* to slaughter one bird over fresh water in a clay vessel. 6 He must take the living bird and the cedar wood* and the crimson thread* and the hyssop, and he shall dip them and the living bird in the bird's blood slaughtered over the fresh water. 7 And he shall spatter the blood* seven times on the one who presents himself for cleansing from the infectious skin disease, and he shall declare him clean, and he shall send the living bird into the open field.* 8 Then* the one who presents himself for cleansing shall wash his garments, and he shall shave off all his hair, and he shall wash himself in the water; thus* he shall be clean, and afterward he shall enter the camp, but* he shall stay outside his tent* for seven days. 9 And then* on the seventh day he must shave off all his hair—he must shave his head and his beard and his eyebrows* and all the rest* of his hair—and he shall wash his garments, and he shall wash his body in the water; thus* he shall be clean. 10 "And on the eighth day he must take two male lambs without defect and one ewe-lamb in its first year* without defect and three-tenths of an ephah* of finely milled flour mixed with oil as a grain offering and one log of oil. 11 And the priest who cleanses him* shall present the man who presents himself for cleansing and these things* before* the tent of assembly's entrance. 12 Then* the priest shall take the one male lamb, and he shall present it as a guilt offering, and the log of oil, and he shall wave them as a wave offering before* Yahweh. 13 And he shall slaughter the male lamb in the place where he slaughters the sin offering and the burnt offering in the sanctuary's space,* because as the sin offering belongs to the priest, so also the guilt offering—it is a most holy thing.* 14 And the priest shall take some of* the guilt offering's blood, and the priest shall put it* on the right ear's lobe of the one who presents himself for cleansing and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe. 15 And the priest shall take some of* the log of oil, and he shall pour it* on his* left palm; 16 and the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is on his left palm, and he shall spatter some of* the oil with his finger seven times before* Yahweh. 17 Then* the priest shall put some of* the remaining oil, which is on his palm, on the right ear's lobe of the one to be cleansed and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe, on top of the guilt offering's blood.* 18 And the remaining oil that is on the priest's palm he shall put on the head of the one who presents himself for cleansing, and the priest shall make atonement for him before* Yahweh. 19 Thus* the priest shall sacrifice* the sin offering, and he shall make atonement for the one who presents himself for cleansing from his uncleanness, and afterward he shall slaughter the burnt offering. 20 Then* the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the grain offering on the altar, and the priest shall make atonement for him, and so he shall be clean. 21 "But* if he is poor and he cannot afford* it,* then* he shall take one male lamb for a guilt offering as a wave offering to make atonement for himself and one-tenth of an ephah* of finely milled flour mixed with oil for a grain offering, and a log of oil, 22 and two turtledoves or two young doves* that he can afford,* and one shall be a sin offering and the other* a burnt offering. 23 And he shall bring them to the priest at the tent of assembly's entrance before* Yahweh on the eighth day for his cleansing. 24 And the priest shall take the male lamb for the guilt offering and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them as a wave offering before* Yahweh; 25 and he shall slaughter the male lamb of the guilt offering, and the priest shall take some of* the guilt offering's blood, and he shall put it* on the right ear's lobe of the one who presents himself for cleansing and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe. 26 Then* the priest shall pour out some of* the oil on his own* left palm, 27 and with his right finger the priest shall spatter some of* the oil that is on his left palm seven times before* Yahweh. 28 Then* the priest shall put some of* the oil that is on his palm on the right ear's lobe of the one who presents himself for cleansing and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe on the place of the guilt offering's blood. 29 And the remaining oil that is on the priest's palm he shall put on the head of the one who presents himself for cleansing to make atonement for him before* Yahweh. 30 And he shall sacrifice* one of the turtledoves or the young doves* that he can afford,* 31 even* what he can afford,* the one as a sin offering and the other* as a burnt offering in addition to the grain offering, and the priest shall make atonement for the one who presents himself for cleansing before* Yahweh. 32 This is the regulation of the one on whom is an infectious skin disease who cannot afford* the cost* for his cleansing." 33 Then* Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 34 "When you come into the land of Canaan, which I am about to give to you as your possession, and I put mildew* in a house in the land of your possession, 35 then* the one who owns the house* shall come and tell the priest, saying, 'It appears to me that an infection is in the house.' 36 And the priest shall issue a command, and they shall clear out the house before the priest comes to examine the infection, so that* all that is in the house might not become unclean; and afterward* the priest shall go to examine the house. 37 And he shall examine the infection, and if* the infection on the house's wall has yellowish-green or reddish spots and its appearance is deeper than the surface of* the wall, 38 then* the priest shall go out from the house to the house's entrance, and he shall confine* the house for seven days. 39 And the priest shall return on the seventh day, and he shall examine the infection,* and if* the infection has spread on the house's wall, 40 the priest shall issue a command and they shall remove the stones on which is the infection, and they shall throw them outside the city* on an unclean place. 41 Then* they* shall scrape off the plaster* from all around the house, and they shall pour out the plaster,* which they scraped off, outside the city* on an unclean place. 42 And they shall take other stones, and they shall put* them in place of those stones, and they* shall take other plaster,* and they* shall replaster* the house. 43 "But* if the infection should return and it breaks out in the house after they* have removed the stones and after scraping off the plaster* of the house and after it has been replastered,* 44 then* the priest shall come, and he shall examine the infection,* and if* the infection has spread in the house, it is a destructive mildew* in the house—it is unclean. 45 So* he shall break down the house, its stones and its wood and all of the house's plaster,* and he shall bring it all* outside the city* to an unclean place. 46 And the person who enters into the house during all the days that he* confined* it shall become unclean until the evening. 47 And the person who sleeps in the house must wash his garments, and the person who eats in the house shall wash his garments. 48 "And if the priest comes again and examines the house* and if* the infection has not spread in the house after being replastered,* then* the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the infection is healed. 49 And he shall take two birds and cedar wood* and a crimson thread* and hyssop to cleanse the house; 50 and he shall slaughter the first bird over fresh water on a clay vessel. 51 Then* he shall take the cedar wood* and the hyssop and the crimson thread* and the living bird, and he shall dip them in the slaughtered bird's blood and in the fresh water, and he shall spatter them* on the house seven times. 52 Thus* he shall purify the house with the bird's blood and with the fresh water and with the living bird and with the cedar wood* and with the hyssop and with the crimson thread.* 53 And he shall send the living bird outside the city* into the open field;* and so he shall make atonement for the house, and it shall be clean. 54 "This is the instruction for any infectious skin disease and for the diseased area of skin, 55 and for a mildew* of the garment and for the house, 56 and for the swelling and for the epidermal eruption and for the spot, 57 to teach when something is unclean and when something is clean.* This is the regulation of the infectious skin disease."

2 Kings 7:3

3 Now four men who had a skin disease were at the entrance of the gate, and they said to each other,* "Why are we sitting here until we die?

Matthew 10:8

8 Heal those who are sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, expel demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

Luke 17:14

14 And when he* saw them* he said to them, "Go and* show yourselves to the priests." And it happened that as they were going, they were cleansed.

Leviticus 13:46

46 For all the days during which the infection is on him, he shall be unclean; he must live alone; his dwelling must be outside the camp."*

Leviticus 13:45-46

45 "As for* the person who is afflicted with a skin disease, his garments must be torn and his hair* must be allowed to hang loosely, and he must cover his upper lip, and he must call out, 'Unclean! Unclean!' 46 For all the days during which the infection is on him, he shall be unclean; he must live alone; his dwelling must be outside the camp."*

Leviticus 13:1-14:57

1 Then* Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 2 "When a person* has on his body's skin a swelling or an epidermal eruption or a spot and it becomes* an infectious skin disease on his body's skin, then* he shall be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons the priests. 3 And the priest shall examine the infection on his body's skin, and if the hair in the infection turns white and the appearance of the infection is deeper than his body's skin, it is an infectious skin disease, and the priest shall examine it, and he shall declare him unclean. 4 But* if a spot is white on his body's skin and its appearance is not deeper than the skin and its hair does not turn white, then* the priest shall confine the afflicted person for seven days. 5 And the priest shall examine it on the seventh day, and if,* in his eyes, the infection has stayed unchanged, the infection has not spread on the skin, then* the priest shall confine him for seven days a second time. 6 And the priest shall examine him on the seventh day for a second time, and if* the infection has faded and the infection has not spread on the skin, then* the priest shall declare him clean—it is an epidermal eruption; and he shall wash his garments, and so he shall be clean. 7 But* if the epidermal eruption spreads further on the skin after showing himself to the priest for his cleansing, then* he shall appear a second time to the priest. 8 And the priest shall examine it,* and if* the epidermal eruption has spread on the skin, then* the priest shall declare him unclean—it is an infectious skin disease. 9 "When an infectious skin disease is on a person and he is brought to the priest, 10 the priest shall examine it,* and if* a white swelling is on the skin and it turns the hair white and raw flesh* is in the swelling, 11 it is a chronic infectious skin disease on his body's skin, and the priest shall declare him unclean; he shall not confine him, because he is unclean. 12 And if the infectious skin disease breaks out all over on the skin and the infectious skin disease covers all of the afflicted person's skin from his head to his feed, so far as the priest can see,* 13 then* the priest shall examine it,* and if* the infectious skin disease covers his whole body, then* he shall pronounce the afflicted person clean—all of it has turned white; he is clean. 14 But* whenever* raw flesh* appears on him, he shall become unclean. 15 And the priest shall examine the raw flesh,* and he shall pronounce him unclean—the raw flesh* is unclean; it is an infectious skin disease. 16 Or, when the raw flesh* returns and it has changed to white, then* he shall come to the priest, 17 and the priest shall examine him, and if* the infection has changed to white, then* the priest shall pronounce the afflicted person clean—he is clean. 18 "And when someone's body has* a skin sore on his skin and it is healed 19 and a white swelling or a pinkish* spot appears in the skin sore's place, then* he shall show himself to the priest. 20 And the priest shall examine it,* and if* its appearance is deeper than the skin and its hair has changed to white, then* the priest shall declare him unclean—it is an infectious skin disease; it has broken out in the skin sore. 21 And if the priest examines it and if* there is no white hair in it and it is not deeper than the skin and it is faded, then* the priest shall confine him for seven days. 22 But* if it has spread further on the skin, then* the priest shall declare him unclean—it is an infection. 23 But* if the spot has stayed unchanged, it has not spread, it is the skin sore's scar, so* the priest shall declare him clean. 24 "Or when a body has* a burn-spot from* fire on its skin and the raw flesh* of the burn-spot is pinkish* or white, 25 then* the priest shall examine it, and if* the hair turns white in the spot and its appearance is deeper than the skin, it is an infectious skin disease—it has broken out in the burn-spot; so* the priest shall declare him unclean—it is an infectious skin disease. 26 But* if the priest examines it and if* there is not white hair in the spot and it is not deeper than the skin and it is faded, then* the priest shall confine him for seven days. 27 And the priest shall examine him on the seventh day; if it has spread further on the skin, then* the priest shall declare him unclean—it is an infectious skin disease. 28 But* if it the spot has stayed unchanged in its place, it has not spread on the skin and it is faded, then it is the burn-spot's swelling, so* the priest shall declare him clean, because it is the burn-spot's scar. 29 "And when a man or a woman has* an infection on the head or in the beard, 30 then* the priest shall examine the infection, and if* its appearance is deeper than the skin and in it is thin bright red hair, then* the priest shall declare it unclean—it is a diseased area of skin; it is an infectious skin disease of the head or the beard. 31 But* if the priest examines the diseased area of the skin's infection and if* its appearance is not deeper than the skin and there is no black hair in it, then* the priest shall confine the afflicted person with the diseased area of skin for seven days. 32 And the priest shall examine the infection on the seventh day, and if* the diseased area of skin has not spread and it does not have bright red hair in it and the diseased area of the skin's appearance is not deeper than the skin, 33 then* he shall shave himself, but* he shall not shave the diseased area of skin, and the priest shall confine the person with* the diseased area of skin a second time for seven days. 34 And the priest shall examine the diseased area of skin on the seventh day, and if* the diseased area has not spread on the skin and its appearance is not deeper than the skin, then* the priest shall pronounce him clean, and he shall wash his garments, and he shall be clean. 35 But* if the diseased area of skin has not spread further on the skin after his cleansing, 36 then* the priest shall examine him, and if* the diseased area of skin has spread on the skin, the priest shall not inspect for bright* red hair—he is unclean. 37 But* if, in his eyes, the diseased area of skin has stayed unchanged and black hair has grown in it, the diseased area of skin is healed—he is clean, and the priest shall pronounce him clean. 38 "And when a man or a woman has* spots on their body's skin, white spots, 39 then* the priest shall examine them,* and if* the spots on their body's skin are a faded white, it is a skin rash; it has broken out on the skin—it is clean. 40 "And if a man becomes bald, his head is bald, he is clean. 41 And if he becomes bald from his forehead,* his head is bald, he is clean. 42 But* if a pinkish* infection occurs* on the bald spot or on the bald forehead, it is an infectious skin disease that sprouts on his bald spot or on his bald forehead. 43 So* the priest shall examine him, and if* the infection's swelling is pinkish* on his bald spot or on his bald forehead, like the appearance of an infectious skin disease on* the body, 44 he is a man afflicted with a skin disease—he is unclean; the priest certainly shall declare him unclean—his infection is on his head. 45 "As for* the person who is afflicted with a skin disease, his garments must be torn and his hair* must be allowed to hang loosely, and he must cover his upper lip, and he must call out, 'Unclean! Unclean!' 46 For all the days during which the infection is on him, he shall be unclean; he must live alone; his dwelling must be outside the camp."* 47 "And when the garment has* an infectious skin disease* on it, on a wool garment* or on a linen garment,* 48 or on woven material or on a linen fabric, or* on wool or on leather or on any work of leather, 49 and if the infection is yellowish green or reddish on the garment or on the leather or on the woven material or on the fabric or on any leather object,* it is an infectious skin disease* and it shall be shown to the priest. 50 And the priest shall examine the infection, and he shall confine the infected article for seven days. 51 And he shall examine the infection on the seventh day; if the infection has spread on the garment or on the woven material or on the fabric or on the leather, for any work for which the leather is used, the infection is a destructive skin disease*—it is unclean. 52 And he shall burn the garment or the woven material or the fabric, whether wool or linen,* or any leather object that has* the infection, because it is an infectious skin disease,* which is destructive—it must be burned in the fire. 53 "But* if the priest examines it* and if* the infection has not spread on the garment or on the woven material or on the fabric or on any leather object, 54 then* the priest shall command, and someone* shall wash that on which the infection is, and he shall confine it a second time for seven days. 55 And the priest shall examine it* after the infection has been washed off, and if* the infection has not changed its outward appearance and the infection has not spread, it is unclean; he must burn it in the fire; it is a fungus on its back or on its front. 56 But* if the priest examines it* and if* the infection is faded after it has been washed off, then* he shall tear it from the garment or from the leather or from the woven material or from the fabric. 57 And if it appears again on the garment or on the woven material or on the fabric or on any leather object, it is spreading; you* must burn in the fire that which has the infection in it. 58 And the garment or the woven material or the fabric or any leather object that he might wash and the infection is removed from them then* shall be washed a second time, and it shall be clean." 59 This is the regulation of the infectious skin disease* in* the wool garment or the linen or the woven material or the fabric or any leather object to declare it clean or to declare it unclean.

Leviticus 14:1-57

1 Then* Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "This is the regulation of the person afflicted with a skin disease at the time of* his cleansing. And he shall be brought to the priest, 3 and the priest shall go outside the camp,* and the priest shall examine him,* and if* the skin disease's infection is healed on* the afflicted person, 4 then* the priest shall command, and he shall take two living, clean birds and cedar wood* and a crimson thread* and hyssop for the one who presents himself for cleansing. 5 Then* the priest shall command someone* to slaughter one bird over fresh water in a clay vessel. 6 He must take the living bird and the cedar wood* and the crimson thread* and the hyssop, and he shall dip them and the living bird in the bird's blood slaughtered over the fresh water. 7 And he shall spatter the blood* seven times on the one who presents himself for cleansing from the infectious skin disease, and he shall declare him clean, and he shall send the living bird into the open field.* 8 Then* the one who presents himself for cleansing shall wash his garments, and he shall shave off all his hair, and he shall wash himself in the water; thus* he shall be clean, and afterward he shall enter the camp, but* he shall stay outside his tent* for seven days. 9 And then* on the seventh day he must shave off all his hair—he must shave his head and his beard and his eyebrows* and all the rest* of his hair—and he shall wash his garments, and he shall wash his body in the water; thus* he shall be clean. 10 "And on the eighth day he must take two male lambs without defect and one ewe-lamb in its first year* without defect and three-tenths of an ephah* of finely milled flour mixed with oil as a grain offering and one log of oil. 11 And the priest who cleanses him* shall present the man who presents himself for cleansing and these things* before* the tent of assembly's entrance. 12 Then* the priest shall take the one male lamb, and he shall present it as a guilt offering, and the log of oil, and he shall wave them as a wave offering before* Yahweh. 13 And he shall slaughter the male lamb in the place where he slaughters the sin offering and the burnt offering in the sanctuary's space,* because as the sin offering belongs to the priest, so also the guilt offering—it is a most holy thing.* 14 And the priest shall take some of* the guilt offering's blood, and the priest shall put it* on the right ear's lobe of the one who presents himself for cleansing and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe. 15 And the priest shall take some of* the log of oil, and he shall pour it* on his* left palm; 16 and the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is on his left palm, and he shall spatter some of* the oil with his finger seven times before* Yahweh. 17 Then* the priest shall put some of* the remaining oil, which is on his palm, on the right ear's lobe of the one to be cleansed and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe, on top of the guilt offering's blood.* 18 And the remaining oil that is on the priest's palm he shall put on the head of the one who presents himself for cleansing, and the priest shall make atonement for him before* Yahweh. 19 Thus* the priest shall sacrifice* the sin offering, and he shall make atonement for the one who presents himself for cleansing from his uncleanness, and afterward he shall slaughter the burnt offering. 20 Then* the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the grain offering on the altar, and the priest shall make atonement for him, and so he shall be clean. 21 "But* if he is poor and he cannot afford* it,* then* he shall take one male lamb for a guilt offering as a wave offering to make atonement for himself and one-tenth of an ephah* of finely milled flour mixed with oil for a grain offering, and a log of oil, 22 and two turtledoves or two young doves* that he can afford,* and one shall be a sin offering and the other* a burnt offering. 23 And he shall bring them to the priest at the tent of assembly's entrance before* Yahweh on the eighth day for his cleansing. 24 And the priest shall take the male lamb for the guilt offering and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them as a wave offering before* Yahweh; 25 and he shall slaughter the male lamb of the guilt offering, and the priest shall take some of* the guilt offering's blood, and he shall put it* on the right ear's lobe of the one who presents himself for cleansing and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe. 26 Then* the priest shall pour out some of* the oil on his own* left palm, 27 and with his right finger the priest shall spatter some of* the oil that is on his left palm seven times before* Yahweh. 28 Then* the priest shall put some of* the oil that is on his palm on the right ear's lobe of the one who presents himself for cleansing and on his right hand's thumb and on his right foot's big toe on the place of the guilt offering's blood. 29 And the remaining oil that is on the priest's palm he shall put on the head of the one who presents himself for cleansing to make atonement for him before* Yahweh. 30 And he shall sacrifice* one of the turtledoves or the young doves* that he can afford,* 31 even* what he can afford,* the one as a sin offering and the other* as a burnt offering in addition to the grain offering, and the priest shall make atonement for the one who presents himself for cleansing before* Yahweh. 32 This is the regulation of the one on whom is an infectious skin disease who cannot afford* the cost* for his cleansing." 33 Then* Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, 34 "When you come into the land of Canaan, which I am about to give to you as your possession, and I put mildew* in a house in the land of your possession, 35 then* the one who owns the house* shall come and tell the priest, saying, 'It appears to me that an infection is in the house.' 36 And the priest shall issue a command, and they shall clear out the house before the priest comes to examine the infection, so that* all that is in the house might not become unclean; and afterward* the priest shall go to examine the house. 37 And he shall examine the infection, and if* the infection on the house's wall has yellowish-green or reddish spots and its appearance is deeper than the surface of* the wall, 38 then* the priest shall go out from the house to the house's entrance, and he shall confine* the house for seven days. 39 And the priest shall return on the seventh day, and he shall examine the infection,* and if* the infection has spread on the house's wall, 40 the priest shall issue a command and they shall remove the stones on which is the infection, and they shall throw them outside the city* on an unclean place. 41 Then* they* shall scrape off the plaster* from all around the house, and they shall pour out the plaster,* which they scraped off, outside the city* on an unclean place. 42 And they shall take other stones, and they shall put* them in place of those stones, and they* shall take other plaster,* and they* shall replaster* the house. 43 "But* if the infection should return and it breaks out in the house after they* have removed the stones and after scraping off the plaster* of the house and after it has been replastered,* 44 then* the priest shall come, and he shall examine the infection,* and if* the infection has spread in the house, it is a destructive mildew* in the house—it is unclean. 45 So* he shall break down the house, its stones and its wood and all of the house's plaster,* and he shall bring it all* outside the city* to an unclean place. 46 And the person who enters into the house during all the days that he* confined* it shall become unclean until the evening. 47 And the person who sleeps in the house must wash his garments, and the person who eats in the house shall wash his garments. 48 "And if the priest comes again and examines the house* and if* the infection has not spread in the house after being replastered,* then* the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the infection is healed. 49 And he shall take two birds and cedar wood* and a crimson thread* and hyssop to cleanse the house; 50 and he shall slaughter the first bird over fresh water on a clay vessel. 51 Then* he shall take the cedar wood* and the hyssop and the crimson thread* and the living bird, and he shall dip them in the slaughtered bird's blood and in the fresh water, and he shall spatter them* on the house seven times. 52 Thus* he shall purify the house with the bird's blood and with the fresh water and with the living bird and with the cedar wood* and with the hyssop and with the crimson thread.* 53 And he shall send the living bird outside the city* into the open field;* and so he shall make atonement for the house, and it shall be clean. 54 "This is the instruction for any infectious skin disease and for the diseased area of skin, 55 and for a mildew* of the garment and for the house, 56 and for the swelling and for the epidermal eruption and for the spot, 57 to teach when something is unclean and when something is clean.* This is the regulation of the infectious skin disease."

Luke 17:12-14

12 And as* he was entering into a certain village, ten men met him**—lepers, who stood at a distance. 13 And they raised their voices, saying, "Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!" 14 And when he* saw them* he said to them, "Go and* show yourselves to the priests." And it happened that as they were going, they were cleansed.

Mark 1:40-42

40 And a leper came to him, entreating him and kneeling down, saying* to him, "If you are willing, you are able to make me clean." 41 And becoming angry,* he stretched out his hand and* touched him*, and said to him, "I am willing; be made clean." 42 And immediately the leprosy went away from him and he was made clean.
