Leviticus 13:26 Meaning and Commentary

Leviticus 13:26

But if the priest look on it
On the hot burning and bright spot in it, in another person: and, behold, [there be] no white hair on the white spot, and it be no
lower than the [other] skin;
why the word "other" should be supplied I know not, any more than in ( Leviticus 13:21 ) ; but be somewhat dark; or "contracted", (See Gill on Leviticus 13:21); then the priest shall shut him up seven days;
as in the case of the burning boil or hot ulcer, as in ( Leviticus 13:21 ) .

Leviticus 13:26 In-Context

24 Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is a hot burning, and the quick flesh that burneth have a white bright spot, somewhat reddish, or white;
25 Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the hair in the bright spot be turned white, and it be in sight deeper than the skin; it is a leprosy broken out of the burning: wherefore the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.
26 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hair in the bright spot, and it be no lower than the other skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:
27 And the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: and if it be spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.
28 And if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not in the skin, but it be somewhat dark; it is a rising of the burning, and the priest shall pronounce him clean: for it is an inflammation of the burning.
