And the LORD spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
"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,
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,'
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.
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,
then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house and shut up the house seven days.
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,
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.
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.
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.
"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,
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.
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.
Moreover he that goeth into the house all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the evening.
And he that lieth in the house shall wash his clothes, and he that eateth in the house shall wash his clothes.
"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.
And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop.
And he shall kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water;
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.
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;
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."
This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy and scall,
and for the leprosy of a garment and of a house,
and for a rising and for a scab and for a bright spot,
to teach when it is unclean and when it is clean. This is the law of leprosy.
