If the bright spot is white in the skin of his flesh and looks to be not deeper than the skin and the hair thereof is not turned white; then the priest shall shut up the one that has the plague seven days;
and the priest shall look on him the seventh day and see if the plague in his sight is stayed and the plague is not spread in the skin, then the priest shall shut him up seven days the second time.
After this the priest shall look on him again the seventh day and see if the plague has darkened and that the plague is not spread in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean; it is but a scab, and he shall wash his clothes and be clean.

But when the priest looks on the plague of the scall and if it does not look deeper than the skin and there is no black hair in it, then the priest shall shut up the one that has the plague of the scall seven days;
and in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague; and if the scall appears not to have spread and there is no yellowish hair in it and the scall appears not to be deeper than the skin,

And if the priest shall look and it appears that the plague has not spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin,
then the priest shall command that they wash the thing in which the plague is, and he shall shut it up again for seven days.
And the priest shall look on it after the plague has been washed; and if it appears that the plague has not changed its colour, even if the plague is not spread, it is unclean; thou shalt burn it in the fire; it is fret inward, whether the bare spot is within or without.
And if the priest looks and the plague appears to be darker after the washing of it, then he shall cut it out of the garment or out of the skin or out of the warp or out of the woof.
And if it appears again in the garment, either in the warp or in the woof or in anything of skin, springing up again in it, thou shalt burn whatever the plague is in with fire.
But the garment, either warp or woof or whatever thing of skin which thou shalt wash and from which the plague is removed, shall be washed the second time, and then it shall be clean.

Then the priest shall command that they empty the house before the priest goes into it to see the plague so that all that is in the house is not contaminated; and afterward the priest shall go in to recognize the house.
And he shall look on the plague, and if the plague is seen in the walls of the house with hollow streaks, greenish or reddish, which appear to be lower than the wall,
And the priest shall come again the seventh day and shall look; and if the plague has spread in the walls of the house,
then the priest shall command that they remove the stones in which the plague is, and they shall cast them outside the city into an unclean place;
And if the plague comes again and breaks out in the house after he has taken away the stones and after he has scraped the house and after it is plastered,
then the priest shall come in and look; and if the plague appears to have spread in the house, it is a fretting leprosy in the house; it is unclean.
But if the priest shall come in and look upon it, and see that the plague has not spread in the house after the house was plastered, then the priest shall pronounce the house clean because the plague is healed.
