Then the priest shall order that one of the birds be killed over fresh water in a clay pot.16
He is then to take the live bird and dip it, together with the cedar wood, the scarlet yarn and the hyssop, into the blood of the bird that was killed over the fresh water.27
Seven times3 he shall sprinkle4 the one to be cleansed of the infectious disease and pronounce him clean. Then he is to release the live bird in the open fields.58
"The person to be cleansed must wash his clothes,6 shave off all his hair and bathe with water;7 then he will be ceremonially clean.8 After this he may come into the camp,9 but he must stay outside his tent for seven days.
On the seventh day10 he must shave off all his hair;11 he must shave his head, his beard, his eyebrows and the rest of his hair. He must wash his clothes and bathe himself with water, and he will be clean.1210
"On the eighth day13 he must bring two male lambs and one ewe lamb14 a year old, each without defect, along with three-tenths of an ephaha15 of fine flour mixed with oil for a grain offering,16 and one logb of oil.1711
The priest who pronounces him clean shall present18 both the one to be cleansed and his offerings before the LORD at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.1912
"Then the priest is to take one of the male lambs and offer it as a guilt offering,20 along with the log of oil; he shall wave them before the LORD as a wave offering.2113
He is to slaughter the lamb in the holy place22 where the sin offering and the burnt offering are slaughtered. Like the sin offering, the guilt offering belongs to the priest;23 it is most holy.
The priest is to take some of the blood of the guilt offering and put it 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.2415
The priest shall then take some of the log of oil, pour it in the palm of his own left hand,25
