Leviticus 13:18 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 13:18

The flesh also, in which, [even] in the skin thereof, was a
boil
Or hot ulcer, by which, says Maimonides F14 you may understand any stroke by a stone, stick, or iron, or any other thing: and in the Misnah F15, it is asked, what is an ulcer (or boil)? a stroke by wood, stone, pitch, or hot water; all that is from the force of fire is an ulcer: and is healed;
by the use of medicine, and the part, in all appearance, as well and as sound as ever.

Leviticus 13:18 In-Context

16 Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed unto white, he shall come unto the priest;
17 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the plague be turned into white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: he is clean.
18 The flesh also, in which, even in the skin thereof, was a boil, and is healed,
19 And in the place of the boil there be a white rising, or a bright spot, white, and somewhat reddish, and it be shewed to the priest;
20 And if, when the priest seeth it, behold, it be in sight lower than the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white; the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the boil.
