Laws for Cleansing Lepers

1 The LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2 "This shall be the law of the leprous person for the day of his cleansing. 1He shall be brought to the priest, 3 and the priest shall go 2out of the camp, and the priest shall look. Then, if the case of leprous disease is healed in the leprous person, 4 the priest shall command them to take for him who is to be cleansed two livea clean birds and 3cedarwood and 4scarlet yarn and 5hyssop. 5 And the priest shall command them to kill one of the birds in an earthenware vessel over freshb water. 6 He shall take the live bird with the cedarwood and the scarlet yarn and the hyssop, and dip them and the live bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the fresh water. 7 And he shall 6sprinkle it 7seven times on him who is to be cleansed of the leprous disease. Then he shall pronounce him clean and shall 8let the living bird go 9into the open field. 8 And he who is to be cleansed 10shall wash his clothes and shave off all his hair and bathe himself in water, and he shall be clean. And after that he may come into the camp, but 11live outside his tent seven days. 9 And 12on the seventh day he shall shave off all his hair from his head, his beard, and his eyebrows. He shall shave off all his hair, and then he 13shall wash his clothes and bathe his body in water, and he shall be clean. 10 "And on the eighth day he 14shall take two male lambs without blemish, and one ewe lamb a year old without blemish, and a 15grain offering of three tenths of an ephahc of fine flour mixed with oil, and one logd of oil. 11 And the priest who cleanses him shall set the man who is to be cleansed and these things before the LORD, at the entrance of the tent of meeting. 12 And the priest shall take one of the male lambs and 16offer it for a guilt offering, along with the log of oil, and 17wave them for a wave offering before the LORD. 13 And he shall kill the lamb 18in the place where they kill the sin offering and the burnt offering, in the place of the sanctuary. For 19the guilt offering, like the sin offering, belongs to the priest; 20it is most holy. 14 The priest shall take some of the blood of the guilt offering, and the priest shall put it 21on the lobe of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed and on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot. 15 Then the priest shall take some of the log of oil and pour it into the palm of his own left hand 16 and dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left hand and sprinkle some oil with his finger seven times before the LORD. 17 And some of the oil that remains in his hand the priest shall put on the lobe of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed and on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot, on top of the blood of the guilt offering. 18 And the rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall put on the head of him who is to be cleansed. 22Then the priest shall make atonement for him before the LORD. 19 The priest shall offer the sin offering, to make atonement for him who is to be cleansed from his uncleanness. And afterward he shall kill the burnt offering. 20 And the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the 23grain offering on the altar. 24Thus the priest shall make atonement for him, and he shall be clean. 21 "But 25if he is poor and cannot afford so much, then he shall take one male lamb for a guilt offering 26to be waved, to make atonement for him, and a tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil for a grain offering, and a log of oil; 22 27also two turtledoves or two pigeons, whichever he can afford. The one shall be a sin offering and the other a burnt offering. 23 28And on the eighth day he shall bring them for his cleansing to the priest, to the entrance of the tent of meeting, before the LORD. 24 29And the priest shall take the lamb of the guilt offering and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD. 25 And he shall kill the lamb of the guilt offering. 30And the priest shall take some of the blood of the guilt offering and put it on the lobe of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot. 26 And the priest shall pour some of the oil into the palm of his own left hand, 27 and shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil that is in his left hand seven times before the LORD. 28 And the priest shall put some of the oil that is in his hand on the lobe of the right ear of him who is to be cleansed and on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot, in the place where the blood of the guilt offering was put. 29 And the rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall put on the head of him who is to be cleansed, to make atonement for him before the LORD. 30 And he shall offer, of the 31turtledoves or pigeons, whichever he can afford, 31 onee for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering, along with a grain offering. 32And the priest shall make atonement before the LORD for him who is being cleansed. 32 This is the law for him in whom is a case of leprous disease, who cannot afford 33the offerings for his cleansing."
