"If a man or woman has a sore on the head1 or on the chin,
the priest is to examine the sore, and if it appears to be more than skin deep and the hair in it is yellow and thin, the priest shall pronounce that person unclean; it is an itch, an infectious disease of the head or chin.
But if, when the priest examines this kind of sore, it does not seem to be more than skin deep and there is no black hair in it, then the priest is to put the infected person in isolation for seven days.232
On the seventh day the priest is to examine the sore,3 and if the itch has not spread and there is no yellow hair in it and it does not appear to be more than skin deep,
he must be shaved except for the diseased area, and the priest is to keep him in isolation another seven days.
On the seventh day the priest is to examine the itch,4 and if it has not spread in the skin and appears to be no more than skin deep, the priest shall pronounce him clean. He must wash his clothes, and he will be clean.535
But if the itch does spread in the skin after he is pronounced clean,
the priest is to examine him, and if the itch has spread in the skin, the priest does not need to look for yellow hair; the person is unclean.637
If, however, in his judgment it is unchanged and black hair has grown in it, the itch is healed. He is clean, and the priest shall pronounce him clean.
