Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron, 1 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,
2 "Say to the people of Israel, When any man has a discharge from his body, his discharge is unclean. 2 "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'When any man has a bodily discharge, the discharge is unclean.
3 And this is the law of his uncleanness for a discharge: whether his body runs with his discharge, or his body is stopped from discharge, it is uncleanness in him. 3 Whether it continues flowing from his body or is blocked, it will make him unclean. This is how his discharge will bring about uncleanness:
4 Every bed on which he who has the discharge lies shall be unclean; and everything on which he sits shall be unclean. 4 " 'Any bed the man with a discharge lies on will be unclean, and anything he sits on will be unclean.
5 And any one who touches his bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening. 5 Anyone who touches his bed must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean till evening.
6 And whoever sits on anything on which he who has the discharge has sat shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening. 6 Whoever sits on anything that the man with a discharge sat on must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean till evening.
7 And whoever touches the body of him who has the discharge shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening. 7 " 'Whoever touches the man who has a discharge must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean till evening.
8 And if he who has the discharge spits on one who is clean, then he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening. 8 " 'If the man with the discharge spits on someone who is clean, that person must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean till evening.
9 And any saddle on which he who has the discharge rides shall be unclean. 9 " 'Everything the man sits on when riding will be unclean,
10 And whoever touches anything that was under him shall be unclean until the evening; and he who carries such a thing shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening. 10 and whoever touches any of the things that were under him will be unclean till evening; whoever picks up those things must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean till evening.
11 Any one whom he that has the discharge touches without having rinsed his hands in water shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening. 11 " 'Anyone the man with a discharge touches without rinsing his hands with water must wash his clothes and bathe with water, and he will be unclean till evening.
12 And the earthen vessel which he who has the discharge touches shall be broken; and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water. 12 " 'A clay pot that the man touches must be broken, and any wooden article is to be rinsed with water.
13 "And when he who has a discharge is cleansed of his discharge, then he shall count for himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes; and he shall bathe his body in running water, and shall be clean. 13 " 'When a man is cleansed from his discharge, he is to count off seven days for his ceremonial cleansing; he must wash his clothes and bathe himself with fresh water, and he will be clean.
14 And on the eighth day he shall take two turtledoves or two young pigeons, and come before the LORD to the door of the tent of meeting, and give them to the priest; 14 On the eighth day he must take two doves or two young pigeons and come before the LORD to the entrance to the Tent of Meeting and give them to the priest.
15 and the priest shall offer them, one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make atonement for him before the LORD for his discharge. 15 The priest is to sacrifice them, the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. In this way he will make atonement before the LORD for the man because of his discharge.
16 "And if a man has an emission of semen, he shall bathe his whole body in water, and be unclean until the evening. 16 " 'When a man has an emission of semen, he must bathe his whole body with water, and he will be unclean till evening.
17 And every garment and every skin on which the semen comes shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the evening. 17 Any clothing or leather that has semen on it must be washed with water, and it will be unclean till evening.
18 If a man lies with a woman and has an emission of semen, both of them shall bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the evening. 18 When a man lies with a woman and there is an emission of semen, both must bathe with water, and they will be unclean till evening.
