18 The flesh and the skin, in which a botch is bred, and is healed, (The flesh and the skin, in which a boil, or a sore, is bred, and then is healed,)
19 and the place of the botch, or a fell sore (or the sore), appeareth white, either red, the man shall be brought to the priest;
20 and when the priest seeth the place of the leprosy (to be) lower than the other flesh, and the hairs turned into whiteness, the priest shall defoul him, that is, (shall) deem him (to be) foul, (the priest shall pronounce him to be defiled, or unclean); for the wound of leprosy is bred in the botch [for a plague of leprosy is sprung in the botch].
21 That if the hair is of the former colour, and the sign of the wound is some-deal dark, and is not lower than the flesh beside, the priest shall close the man seven days; (But if the hair is of the former colour, and the mark of the plague is somewhat dark, and is not lower than the flesh beside it, the priest shall enclose the man for seven days;)
22 and soothly, if his sore waxeth, the priest shall deem the man to be (a) leper; (and if his sore groweth, or spreadeth, the priest shall pronounce him to be a leper;)
23 forsooth if it standeth in his place, it is a sign of a botch, and the man shall be clean. (but if it standeth in its place, it is the sign of a boil, or of a sore, and the priest shall pronounce him to be clean.)
24 Flesh, and skin, which the fire hath burnt, and is (now) healed, and hath a white, either red, sign of (a) wound, the priest shall behold it (the priest shall examine it),
25 and lo! if it is turned into whiteness, and the place thereof is lower than the tother skin, the priest shall defoul the man (the priest shall pronounce him to be defiled, or unclean), for a wound of leprosy is bred in the sign of (the) wound [for the plague of leprosy is sprung in the fell wound].
26 That if the colour of [the] hairs is not changed, neither the wound, or soreness, is lower than the tother flesh, and that species of leprosy is some-deal dark, the priest shall close the man seven days; (But if the colour of the hairs is not changed, and the sore is not lower than the other flesh, and that kind of leprosy is somewhat dark, the priest shall enclose the man for seven days;)
27 and in the seventh day he shall behold him; if the leprosy waxeth in the flesh, the priest shall defoul the man, (that is, shall deem him to be defiled, or unclean); (and on the seventh day he shall examine him; if the leprosy hath grown, or spread, in the flesh, the priest shall pronounce him to be defiled, or unclean;)
28 else if the whiteness standeth in his place, and is not clear enough, it is a wound, or soreness, of burning, and therefore the man shall be cleansed, for it is a sign of burning. (but if the whiteness standeth in its place, and is light in colour, it is a sore from a burn, and so the man shall be clean, that is, the priest shall pronounce him to be clean, for it is the mark of a burn.)
