|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
13 If that animal blood and the other rituals of purification were effective in cleaning up certain matters of our religion and behavior,
13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean.
