Leviticus 13:7

But if the scab spread much abroad in the skin
Or "in spreading spread" F11; spreads, and proceeds to spread more and more:

after that he hath been seen of the priest for his cleansing:
even after he had been viewed upon the first presentation of him to him, and after he had been twice seen by him by the end of two weeks, in which he was shut up, and after he had been pronounced clean, and had washed his clothes for his purification:

he shall be seen of the priest again;
either he shall go to him of himself, or be brought to him, to be reviewed and pass under afresh examination.
