Third Millennium Bible (TMB) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 "This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought unto the priest. 2 "These are the regulations for the diseased person at the time of his ceremonial cleansing, when he is brought to the priest:
3 And the priest shall go forth out of the camp, and the priest shall look; and behold, if the plague of leprosy be healed in the leper, 3 The priest is to go outside the camp and examine him. If the person has been healed of his infectious skin disease,
4 then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop. 4 the priest shall order that two live clean birds and some cedar wood, scarlet yarn and hyssop be brought for the one to be cleansed.
5 And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water. 5 Then the priest shall order that one of the birds be killed over fresh water in a clay pot.
6 As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water. 6 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.
7 And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean and shall let the living bird loose into the open field. 7 Seven times he shall sprinkle 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.
8 And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off all his hair, and wash himself in water, that he may be clean; and after that he shall come into the camp, and shall tarry abroad out of his tent seven days. 8 "The person to be cleansed must wash his clothes, shave off all his hair and bathe with water; then he will be ceremonially clean. After this he may come into the camp, but he must stay outside his tent for seven days.
9 But it shall be on the seventh day that he shall shave all his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall shave off, and he shall wash his clothes; also he shall wash his flesh in water, and he shall be clean. 9 On the seventh day he must shave off all his hair; 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.
10 "And on the eighth day he shall take two helambs without blemish and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish, and threetenths part of fine flour for a meat offering mingled with oil, and one log of oil. 10 "On the eighth day he must bring two male lambs and one ewe lamb a year old, each without defect, along with three-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil for a grain offering, and one log of oil.
11 And the priest who maketh him clean shall present the man that is to be made clean, and those things, before the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 11 The priest who pronounces him clean shall present both the one to be cleansed and his offerings before the LORD at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting.
12 And the priest shall take one helamb and offer him for a trespass offering, and the log of oil, and wave them for a wave offering before the LORD. 12 "Then the priest is to take one of the male lambs and offer it as a guilt offering, along with the log of oil; he shall wave them before the LORD as a wave offering.
13 And he shall slay the lamb in the place where he shall kill the sin offering and the burnt offering, in the holy place; for as the sin offering is the priest's, so is the trespass offering; it is most holy. 13 He is to slaughter the lamb in the holy place where the sin offering and the burnt offering are slaughtered. Like the sin offering, the guilt offering belongs to the priest; it is most holy.
14 And the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed and upon the thumb of his right hand and upon the great toe of his right foot. 14 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.
15 And the priest shall take some of the log of oil and pour it into the palm of his own left hand. 15 The priest shall then take some of the log of oil, pour it in the palm of his own left hand,
16 And the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left hand and shall sprinkle of the oil with his finger seven times before the LORD; 16 dip his right forefinger into the oil in his palm, and with his finger sprinkle some of it before the LORD seven times.
17 and of the rest of the oil that is in his hand shall the priest put upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the blood of the trespass offering. 17 The priest is to put some of the oil remaining in his palm 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, on top of the blood of the guilt offering.
18 And the remnant of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall pour upon the head of him that is to be cleansed; and the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD. 18 The rest of the oil in his palm the priest shall put on the head of the one to be cleansed and make atonement for him before the LORD.
19 And the priest shall offer the sin offering, and make an atonement for him that is to be cleansed from his uncleanness; and afterward he shall kill the burnt offering. 19 "Then the priest is to sacrifice the sin offering and make atonement for the one to be cleansed from his uncleanness. After that, the priest shall slaughter the burnt offering
20 And the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the meat offering upon the altar; and the priest shall make an atonement for him, and he shall be clean. 20 and offer it on the altar, together with the grain offering, and make atonement for him, and he will be clean.
21 "And if he be poor and cannot get so much, then he shall take one lamb for a trespass offering to be waved to make an atonement for him, and onetenth part of fine flour mingled with oil for a meat offering, and a log of oil, 21 "If, however, he is poor and cannot afford these, he must take one male lamb as a guilt offering to be waved to make atonement for him, together with a tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil for a grain offering, a log of oil,
22 and two turtledoves or two young pigeons, such as he is able to get; and the one shall be a sin offering and the other a burnt offering. 22 and two doves or two young pigeons, which he can afford, one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering.
23 And he shall bring them on the eighth day for his cleansing unto the priest unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, before the LORD. 23 "On the eighth day he must bring them for his cleansing to the priest at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting, before the LORD.
24 And the priest shall take the lamb of the trespass offering and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave offering before the LORD. 24 The priest is to take the lamb for the guilt offering, together with the log of oil, and wave them before the LORD as a wave offering.
25 And he shall kill the lamb of the trespass offering, and the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering and put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand and upon the great toe of his right foot; 25 He shall slaughter the lamb for the guilt offering and take some of its blood 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.
26 and the priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his own left hand. 26 The priest is to pour some of the oil into the palm of his own left hand,
27 And the priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil that is in his left hand seven times before the LORD; 27 and with his right forefinger sprinkle some of the oil from his palm seven times before the LORD.
28 and the priest shall put of the oil that is in his hand upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the place of the blood of the trespass offering. 28 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.
29 And the rest of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall put upon the head of him that is to be cleansed, to make an atonement for him before the LORD. 29 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.
30 And he shall offer one of the turtledoves or of the young pigeons, such as he can get-- 30 Then he shall sacrifice the doves or the young pigeons, which the person can afford,
31 even such as he is able to get -- the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering, with the meat offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for him that is to be cleansed before the LORD. 31 one as a sin offering and the other as a burnt offering, together with the grain offering. In this way the priest will make atonement before the LORD on behalf of the one to be cleansed."
32 This is the law for him in whom is the plague of leprosy, whose hand is not able to get that which pertaineth to his cleansing." 32 These are the regulations for anyone who has an infectious skin disease and who cannot afford the regular offerings for his cleansing.
33 And the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 33 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
34 "When ye have come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession, 34 "When you enter the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as your possession, and I put a spreading mildew in a house in that land,
35 and he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, `It seemeth to me there is, as it were, a plague in the house,' 35 the owner of the house must go and tell the priest, 'I have seen something that looks like mildew in my house.'
36 then the priest shall command that they empty the house before the priest go into it to see the plague, that all that is in the house be not made unclean; and afterward the priest shall go in to see the house. 36 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.
37 And he shall look on the plague, and behold, if the plague be in the walls of the house with hollow streaks, greenish or reddish, which in appearance are lower than the wall, 37 He is to examine the mildew on the walls, and if it has greenish or reddish depressions that appear to be deeper than the surface of the wall,
38 then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house and shut up the house seven days. 38 the priest shall go out the doorway of the house and close it up for seven days.
39 And the priest shall come again the seventh day and shall look; and behold, if the plague is spread in the walls of the house, 39 On the seventh day the priest shall return to inspect the house. If the mildew has spread on the walls,
40 then the priest shall command that they take away the stones in which the plague is, and they shall cast them into an unclean place outside the city. 40 he is to order that the contaminated stones be torn out and thrown into an unclean place outside the town.
41 And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off outside the city into an unclean place. 41 He must have all the inside walls of the house scraped and the material that is scraped off dumped into an unclean place outside the town.
42 And they shall take other stones and put them in the place of those stones, and he shall take other mortar and shall plaster the house. 42 Then they are to take other stones to replace these and take new clay and plaster the house.
43 "And if the plague come again and break out in the house, after he hath taken away the stones and after he hath scraped the house and after it is plastered, 43 "If the mildew reappears in the house after the stones have been torn out and the house scraped and plastered,
44 then the priest shall come and look; and behold, if the plague is spread in the house, it is a consuming leprosy in the house; it is unclean. 44 the priest is to go and examine it and, if the mildew has spread in the house, it is a destructive mildew; the house is unclean.
45 And he shall break down the house -- the stones of it and the timber thereof and all the mortar of the house; and he shall carry them forth out of the city into an unclean place. 45 It must be torn down--its stones, timbers and all the plaster--and taken out of the town to an unclean place.
46 Moreover he that goeth into the house all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the evening. 46 "Anyone who goes into the house while it is closed up will be unclean till evening.
47 And he that lieth in the house shall wash his clothes, and he that eateth in the house shall wash his clothes. 47 Anyone who sleeps or eats in the house must wash his clothes.
48 "And if the priest shall come in and look upon it, and behold, the plague hath not spread in the house after the house was plastered, then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the plague is healed. 48 "But if the priest comes to examine it and the mildew has not spread after the house has been plastered, he shall pronounce the house clean, because the mildew is gone.
49 And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop. 49 To purify the house he is to take two birds and some cedar wood, scarlet yarn and hyssop.
50 And he shall kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water; 50 He shall kill one of the birds over fresh water in a clay pot.
51 and he shall take the cedar wood and the hyssop and the scarlet and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times. 51 Then he is to take the cedar wood, the hyssop, the scarlet yarn and the live bird, dip them into the blood of the dead bird and the fresh water, and sprinkle the house seven times.
52 And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird and with the running water and with the living bird, and with the cedar wood and with the hyssop and with the scarlet; 52 He shall purify the house with the bird's blood, the fresh water, the live bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop and the scarlet yarn.
53 but he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open fields, and make an atonement for the house; and it shall be clean." 53 Then he is to release the live bird in the open fields outside the town. In this way he will make atonement for the house, and it will be clean."
54 This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy and scall, 54 These are the regulations for any infectious skin disease, for an itch,
55 and for the leprosy of a garment and of a house, 55 for mildew in clothing or in a house,
56 and for a rising and for a scab and for a bright spot, 56 and for a swelling, a rash or a bright spot,
57 to teach when it is unclean and when it is clean. This is the law of leprosy. 57 to determine when something is clean or unclean. These are the regulations for infectious skin diseases and mildew.
