"If the light spot in the skin of his body is white but the appearance of the skin rash isn't deeper than the skin of his body and its hair has not become white, then the priest is to isolate the one who is infected for seven days.

If the infectious skin disease spreads in the skin so that it covers his entire body from head to foot (as the priest examines it),

But if the priest examines it and discovers that there's no bright area or white hair, or if he discovers that it's not more extensive than skin deep and it's dull, then the priest is to isolate him for seven days.
When the priest examines it on the seventh day and finds that it has indeed spread on the skin, then the priest is to declare him unclean. It's an infectious skin disease.

"Now when a man or a woman has a skin rash on the head or the man develops a skin rash under his beard,
if when the priest examines the skin rash and indeed it appears more extensive than skin deep, and it's accompanied by fine, yellowish hair, then the priest is to declare him unclean. The scales on the head or the beard are an infectious skin disease.
But when the priest examines the scales of the skin rash and it doesn't appear more extensive than skin deep and there's no black hair in it, then the priest is to isolate him for seven days.
When the priest examines the skin rash on the seventh day and finds that indeed the scab did not spread, there's no yellowish hair on it, and the scales don't appear more extensive than skin deep,
The priest is to examine the scab on the seventh day. If, indeed, the scab hasn't spread on the skin and it doesn't appear more extensive than skin deep, then the priest is to declare him clean. He is to wash his garments and be clean.

and the priest examines it and finds the scale to have spread on the skin, the priest need not look for yellowish hair, since he is clean.
