Leviticus 14



Cleansing Of Skin Diseases

1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

1 The LORD told Moses,

1 And the Lord said to Moses,

2 "This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing. Now he shall be brought to the priest,

2 This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought unto the priest:

2 "This is the law concerning those who have infectious skin diseases, after they have been cleansed:

2 This shall be the law of the leper on the day when he is to be pronounced clean: he shall be brought to the priest [at a meeting place outside the camp];

3 and the priest shall go out to the outside of the camp. Thus the priest shall look, and if the infection of leprosy has been healed in the leper,

3 And the priest shall go forth out of the camp; and the priest shall look, and, behold, if the plague of leprosy be healed in the leper;

3 The priest is to go outside the camp and examine the infectious skin disease to confirm that the person has been healed.

3 The priest shall go out of the camp [to meet him]; and [he] shall examine him, and if the disease is healed in the leper,

4 then the priest shall give orders to take two live clean birds and cedar wood and a scarlet string and hyssop for the one who is to be cleansed.

4 Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:

4 If he has been healed, then the priest is to command that two live and clean birds, some cedar wood, some crimson thread, and hyssop be brought for the one cleansed.

4 Then the priest shall command to take for him who is to be cleansed two living clean birds and cedar wood and scarlet [material] and hyssop.

5 "The priest shall also give orders to slay the one bird in an earthenware vessel over running water.

5 And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water:

5 Then the priest is to command that one bird be slaughtered on an earthen vessel over flowing water.

5 And the priest shall command to kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over fresh, running water.

6 "As for the live bird, he shall take it together with the cedar wood and the scarlet string and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the live bird in the blood of the bird that was slain over the running water.

6 As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water:

6 He is to take the live bird, the cedar wood, the crimson thread, and the hyssop, and dip them together in the blood of the bird that had been slaughtered over the flowing water.

6 As for the living bird, he shall take it, the cedar wood, and the scarlet [material], and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird killed over the running water;

7 "He shall then sprinkle seven times the one who is to be cleansed from the leprosy and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the live bird go free over the open field.

7 And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the living bird loose into the open field.

7 He is to sprinkle the blood seven times on the person with the infectious skin disease and then pronounce him clean. Then he is to release the live bird into the open fields.

7 And he shall sprinkle [the blood] on him who is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let go the living bird into the open field.

The Seven Days Of Purification

8 "The one to be cleansed shall then wash his clothes and shave off all his hair and bathe in water and be clean Now afterward, he may enter the camp, but he shall stay outside his tent for seven days.

8 And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean: and after that he shall come into the camp, and shall tarry abroad out of his tent seven days.

8 The person who is clean is to wash his clothes, shave all his hair, and bathe in water, after which he is to be declared clean. Then he can be brought back to the camp, but he is to remain outside his tent for seven days.

8 He who is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, shave off all his hair, and bathe himself in water; and he shall be clean. After that he shall come into the camp, but stay outside his tent seven days.

9 "It will be on the seventh day that he shall shave off all his hair: he shall shave his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair. He shall then wash his clothes and bathe his body in water and be clean.

9 But it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall shave off: and he shall wash his clothes, also he shall wash his flesh in water, and he shall be clean.

9 On the seventh day, he is to shave the hair on his head, chin, back, and eyebrows. After he has shaved all his hair, washed his clothes, and bathed himself with water, then he will be clean."

9 But on the seventh day he shall shave all his hair off his head, his beard, his eyebrows, and his [body]; and he shall wash his clothes and bathe his body in water, and be clean.

Instructions For Cleansing Houses

33 The LORD further spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying:

33 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

33 The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron:

33 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron,

34 "When you enter the land of Canaan, which I give you for a possession, and I put a mark of leprosy on a house in the land of your possession,

34 When ye be come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession;

34 "When you enter the land of Canaan that I'm about to give you as your own possession, and if I put a contagion in a house in the land that you possess,

34 When you have come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I put the disease of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession,

35 then the one who owns the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, 'Something like a mark of leprosy has become visible to me in the house.'

35 And he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, It seemeth to me there is as it were a plague in the house:

35 then the owner of the house is to approach the priest and tell him, "There appears to be a contagion in the house.'

35 Then he who owns the house shall come and tell the priest, It seems to me there is some sort of disease in my house.

36 "The priest shall then command that they empty the house before the priest goes in to look at the mark, so that everything in the house need not become unclean; and afterward the priest shall go in to look at the house.

36 Then the priest shall command that they empty the house, before the priest go into it to see the plague, that all that is in the house be not made unclean: and afterward the priest shall go in to see the house:

36 "The priest is to command that the house be cleared before he comes to examine the contagion so that not everything in the house becomes unclean. After this, the priest is to enter the house and examine it.

36 Then the priest shall command that they empty the house before [he] goes in to examine the disease, so that all that is in the house may not be declared unclean; afterward [he] shall go in to see the house.

37 "So he shall look at the mark, and if the mark on the walls of the house has greenish or reddish depressions and appears deeper than the surface,

37 And he shall look on the plague, and, behold, if the plague be in the walls of the house with hollow strakes, greenish or reddish, which in sight are lower than the wall;

37 He is to determine if the contagion is indeed on the walls of the house, with greenish or reddish streaks, and to determine if it appears to be deeper than the surface of the wall.

37 He shall examine the disease, and if it is in the walls of the house with depressed spots of dark green or dark red appearing beneath [the surface of] the wall,

38 then the priest shall come out of the house, to the doorway, and quarantine the house for seven days.

38 Then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house, and shut up the house seven days:

38 The priest is to leave through the entrance to the house and seal the house for seven days.

38 Then the priest shall go out of the door and shut up the house seven days.

39 "The priest shall return on the seventh day and make an inspection. If the mark has indeed spread in the walls of the house,

39 And the priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall look: and, behold, if the plague be spread in the walls of the house;

39 He is to return after seven days to examine it. If the contagion has spread to the walls of the house,

39 The priest shall come again on the seventh day and shall look; and if the disease has spread in the walls of the house,

40 then the priest shall order them to tear out the stones with the mark in them and throw them away at an unclean place outside the city.

40 Then the priest shall command that they take away the stones in which the plague is, and they shall cast them into an unclean place without the city:

40 then the priest is to command that they take out the contaminated stones and discard them in an unclean place outside the city.

40 He shall command that they take out the diseased stones and cast them into an unclean place outside the city.

41 "He shall have the house scraped all around inside, and they shall dump the plaster that they scrape off at an unclean place outside the city.

41 And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off without the city into an unclean place:

41 "Now as for the house, they are to scrape off inside and outside the house and then discard the torn out plaster in an unclean place outside the city.

41 He shall cause the house to be scraped within round about and the plaster or mortar that is scraped off to be emptied out in an unclean place outside the city.

42 "Then they shall take other stones and replace those stones, and he shall take other plaster and replaster the house.

42 And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of those stones; and he shall take other morter, and shall plaister the house.

42 They are then to take other stones and bring them to replace those stones. Lastly, they are to replaster the house."

42 And they shall put other stones in the place of those stones, and he shall plaster the house with fresh mortar.

43 "If, however, the mark breaks out again in the house after he has torn out the stones and scraped the house, and after it has been replastered,

43 And if the plague come again, and break out in the house, after that he hath taken away the stones, and after he hath scraped the house, and after it is plaistered;

43 "If the contagion returns and spreads throughout the house after the stones have been removed, after the house has been scraped out, and after it has been re-coated,

43 If the disease returns, breaking out in the house after he has removed the stones and has scraped and plastered the house,

44 then the priest shall come in and make an inspection. If he sees that the mark has indeed spread in the house, it is a malignant mark in the house; it is unclean.

44 Then the priest shall come and look, and, behold, if the plague be spread in the house, it is a fretting leprosy in the house: it is unclean.

44 and the priest comes, undertakes an examination, and determines that the contagion has spread in the house, it's a chronic fungal infection in the house. It's unclean.

44 Then the priest shall come and look, and if the disease is spreading in the house, it is a rotting or corroding leprosy in the house; it is unclean.

45 "He shall therefore tear down the house, its stones, and its timbers, and all the plaster of the house, and he shall take them outside the city to an unclean place.

45 And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber thereof, and all the morter of the house; and he shall carry them forth out of the city into an unclean place.

45 He is to pull down the house, its stones, its lumber, and all the plaster on the house, and discard them in an unclean place outside the city.

45 He shall tear down the house -- "its stones and its timber and all the plaster or mortar of the house -- "and shall carry them forth out of the city to an unclean place.

46 "Moreover, whoever goes into the house during the time that he has quarantined it, becomes unclean until evening.

46 Moreover he that goeth into the house all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the even.

46 Moreover, whoever enters the house during the time it was isolated is to be considered unclean until the evening.

46 Moreover, he who enters the house during the whole time that it is shut up shall be unclean until the evening.

47 "Likewise, whoever lies down in the house shall wash his clothes, and whoever eats in the house shall wash his clothes.

47 And he that lieth in the house shall wash his clothes; and he that eateth in the house shall wash his clothes.

47 Whoever has slept in the house is to wash his clothes, along with whoever has eaten in the house.

47 And he who lies down or eats in the house shall wash his clothes.

48 "If, on the other hand, the priest comes in and makes an inspection and the mark has not indeed spread in the house after the house has been replastered, then the priest shall pronounce the house clean because the mark has not reappeared.

48 And if the priest shall come in, and look upon it, and, behold, the plague hath not spread in the house, after the house was plaistered: then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the plague is healed.

48 "But if the priest comes in to conduct an examination and determines that the contagion has not spread throughout the house after the house has been repaired, then the priest may declare the house clean, because the contagion has been cleansed.

48 But if the priest inspects it and the disease has not spread after the house was plastered, he shall pronounce the house clean, because the disease is healed.

49 "To cleanse the house then, he shall take two birds and cedar wood and a scarlet string and hyssop,

49 And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:

49 In order to cleanse the house, he is to take two birds, some cedar wood, two crimson threads, and some hyssop.

49 He shall take to cleanse the house two birds, cedar wood, scarlet [material], and hyssop;

50 and he shall slaughter the one bird in an earthenware vessel over running water.

50 And he shall kill the one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water:

50 Then he is to slaughter one bird on an earthen vessel over flowing water.

50 And he shall kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water,

51 "Then he shall take the cedar wood and the hyssop and the scarlet string, with the live bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird as well as in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times.

51 And he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird, and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times:

51 He is to take the cedar wood, the hyssop, the two crimson threads, and the live bird, and dip them in the blood of the slaughtered bird over flowing water. Then he is to sprinkle the house seven times.

51 And he shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet [material], and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times.

52 "He shall thus cleanse the house with the blood of the bird and with the running water, along with the live bird and with the cedar wood and with the hyssop and with the scarlet string.

52 And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, and with the running water, and with the living bird, and with the cedar wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet:

52 He is to clean the house with the blood of the bird over flowing water, including cleansing the live bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop, and the crimson thread.

53 But he shall let the living bird go out of the city into the open field; so he shall make atonement for the house, and it shall be clean.
