Some of the oil in his palm he is to put on the same places he put the blood of the guilt offering--on the lobe of the right ear of the one to be cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot.
The rest of the oil in his palm the priest shall put on the head of the one to be cleansed, to make atonement for him before the LORD.130
Then he shall sacrifice the doves or the young pigeons, which the person can afford,231
onea as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering,3 together with the grain offering. In this way the priest will make atonement before the LORD on behalf of the one to be cleansed.4"
These are the regulations for anyone who has an infectious skin disease5 and who cannot afford the regular offerings6 for his cleansing.
The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
"When you enter the land of Canaan,7 which I am giving you as your possession,8 and I put a spreading mildew in a house in that land,
the owner of the house must go and tell the priest, 'I have seen something that looks like mildew in my house.'
The priest is to order the house to be emptied before he goes in to examine the mildew, so that nothing in the house will be pronounced unclean. After this the priest is to go in and inspect the house.
He is to examine the mildew on the walls, and if it has greenish or reddish9 depressions that appear to be deeper than the surface of the wall,
the priest shall go out the doorway of the house and close it up for seven days.10
