Leviticus 14:1-6 RSV

1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 "This shall be the law of the leper for the day of his cleansing. He shall be brought to the priest;
3 and the priest shall go out of the camp, and the priest shall make an examination. Then, if the leprous disease is healed in the leper,
4 the priest shall command them to take for him who is to be cleansed two living clean birds and cedarwood and scarlet stuff and hyssop;
5 and the priest shall command them to kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water.
6 He shall take the living bird with the cedarwood and the scarlet stuff and the hyssop, and dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water;
