\\INTRODUCTION TO LEVITICUS 14\\

This chapter treats of the purification of lepers, and the rules to be
observed therein; and first what the priest was to do for his cleansing
when brought to him, by making use of two birds, with cedar wood,
scarlet and hyssop, as directed, \\#Le 14:1-7\\; what he was to do for
himself, shaving off all his hair, and washing his flesh and clothes in
water, \\#Le 14:8,9\\; the offerings to be offered up for him, two he
lambs and one ewe lamb, and a meat offering, with a particular account
of the use of the blood of the trespass offering, and of oil put upon
the tip of his right ear, the thumb of his right hand, and the great
toe of his right foot, \\#Le 14:10-20\\; but if poor, only one lamb was
required, a meat offering of one tenth deal, and two turtle doves or
two young pigeons, and blood and oil used as before, \\#Le 14:21-32\\; next
follow an account of leprosy in an house, and the signs of it, and the
rules to judge of it, \\#Le 14:33-48\\; and the manner of cleansing from
it, \\#Le 14:49-53\\; and the chapter is closed with a recapitulation of
the several laws concerning the various sorts of leprosy in this and
the preceding chapter, \\#Le 14:54-57\\.
