I smote you with blight [from the poisonous east wind] and with mildew; I laid waste the multitude of your gardens and your vineyards; your fig trees and your olive trees the palmerworm [a form of locust] devoured; yet you did not return to Me, says the Lord.
The garment also that the disease of leprosy [symbolic of sin] is in, whether a wool or a linen garment, Whether it be in woven or knitted stuff or in the warp or woof of linen or of wool, or in a skin or anything made of skin, If the disease is greenish or reddish in the garment, or in a skin or in the warp or woof or in anything made of skin, it is the plague of leprosy; show it to the priest.read more.
The priest shall examine the diseased article and shut it up for seven days. He shall examine the disease on the seventh day; if [it] is spread in the garment, or in the article, whatever service it may be used for, the disease is a rotting or corroding leprosy; it is unclean. He shall burn the garment, whether diseased in warp or woof, in wool or linen, or anything made of skin; for it is a rotting or corroding leprosy, to be burned in the fire. But if the priest finds the disease has not spread in the garment, in the warp or the woof, or in anything made of skin, Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing in which the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more. And the priest shall examine the diseased article after it has been washed, and if the diseased portion has not changed color, though the disease has not spread, it is unclean; you shall burn it in the fire; it is a rotting or corroding [disease], whether the leprous spot be inside or outside. If the priest looks and the diseased portion is less noticeable after it is washed, he shall tear it out of the garment, or the skin (leather), or out of the warp or woof. If it appears still in the garment, either in the warp or in the woof, or in anything made of skin, it is spreading; you shall burn the diseased part with fire. But the garment, or the woven or knitted stuff or warp or woof, or anything made of skin from which the disease departs when you have washed it, shall then be washed a second time, and be clean. This is the law for a leprous disease in a garment of wool or linen, either in the warp or woof, or in anything made of skin, to pronounce it clean or unclean.
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, 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. 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.read more.
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, Then the priest shall go out of the door and shut up the house seven days. The priest shall come again on the seventh day and shall look; and if the disease has spread in the walls of the house, He shall command that they take out the diseased stones and cast them into an unclean place outside the city. 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. And they shall put other stones in the place of those stones, and he shall plaster the house with fresh mortar. If the disease returns, breaking out in the house after he has removed the stones and has scraped and plastered the house, 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. 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. Moreover, he who enters the house during the whole time that it is shut up shall be unclean until the evening. And he who lies down or eats in the house shall wash his clothes. 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. He shall take to cleanse the house two birds, cedar wood, scarlet [material], and hyssop; And he shall kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water, 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. And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, the running water, the living bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop, and the scarlet [material]. 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. This is the law for all kinds of leprous diseases, and mangelike conditions, For the leprosy of a garment or of a house, And for a swelling or an eruption or a scab or a bright spot, To teach when it is unclean and when it is clean. This is the law of leprosy.
