3 This defilement is caused by his discharge, whether the discharge continues or stops. In either case the man is unclean.
4 Any bed on which the man with the discharge lies and anything on which he sits will be ceremonially unclean.
5 So if you touch the man’s bed, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.
6 If you sit where the man with the discharge has sat, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.

9 Any saddle blanket on which the man rides will be ceremonially unclean.
10 If you touch anything that was under the man, you will be unclean until evening. You must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.
11 If the man touches you without first rinsing his hands, you must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening.
12 Any clay pot the man touches must be broken, and any wooden utensil he touches must be rinsed with water.
