The Test for Leprosy

Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:1 - Then the LORD spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:2 - “When someone has on the skin of his [fn]body a swelling, or a scab, or a bright spot, and it becomes an infection of [fn]leprosy on the skin of his [fn]body, then he shall be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons the priests.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:3 - “The priest shall look at the infected area on the skin of the [fn]body, and if the hair in the infection has turned white and the infection appears to be deeper than the skin of his [fn]body, it is an infection of leprosy; when the priest has looked at him, he shall pronounce him unclean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:4 - “But if the bright spot is white on the skin of his [fn]body, and [fn]it does not appear to be deeper than the skin, and the hair on it has not turned white, then the priest shall [fn]isolate the person who has the infection for seven days.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:5 - “Then the priest shall look at him on the seventh day, and if in his eyes the infection has [fn]not changed and the infection has not spread on the skin, then the priest shall [fn]isolate him for seven more days.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:6 - “The priest shall then look at him again on the seventh day, and if the infected area has faded and the infection has not spread on the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean; it is only a rash. And he shall wash his clothes and be clean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:7 - “But if the rash spreads farther on the skin after he has shown himself to the priest for his cleansing, he shall appear again to the priest.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:8 - “And the priest shall look, and if the rash has spread on the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is leprosy.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:9 - “When the infection of leprosy is on someone, then he shall be brought to the priest.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:10 - “The priest shall then look, and if there is a white swelling on the skin, and it has turned the hair white, and there is new raw flesh in the swelling,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:11 - it is [fn]a chronic leprosy on the skin of his [fn]body, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean; he shall not [fn]isolate him, for he is unclean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:12 - “If the leprosy breaks out farther on the skin, and the leprosy covers all the skin of the person who has the infection from his head even to his feet, [fn]as far as the priest can see,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:13 - then the priest shall look, and behold, if the leprosy has covered his entire [fn]body, he shall pronounce the one who has the infection clean; it has all turned white and he is clean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:14 - “But whenever raw flesh appears on him, he shall be unclean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:15 - “The priest shall look at the raw flesh, and he shall pronounce him unclean; the raw flesh is unclean, it is leprosy.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:16 - “Or if the raw flesh turns back and is changed to white, then he shall come to the priest,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:17 - and the priest shall look at him, and behold, if the infected area has turned white, then the priest shall pronounce the one who has the infection clean; he is clean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:18 - “Now when the [fn]body has a boil on its skin and it is healed,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:19 - and in the place of the boil there is a white swelling or a reddish-white, bright spot, then it shall be shown to the priest;
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:20 - and the priest shall look, and behold, if [fn]it appears to be deeper than the skin, and the hair on it has turned white, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is the infection of leprosy, it has broken out in the boil.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:21 - “But if the priest looks at it, and behold, there are no white hairs in it and it is not deeper than the skin and is faded, then the priest shall [fn]isolate him for seven days;
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:22 - and if it spreads farther on the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is an infection.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:23 - “But if the bright spot remains in its place and does not spread, it is only the scar of the boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:24 - “Or if the [fn]body sustains in its skin a burn by fire, and the raw flesh of the burn becomes a bright spot, reddish-white, or white,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:25 - then the priest shall look at it. And if the hair in the bright spot has turned white and it appears to be deeper than the skin, it is leprosy; it has broken out in the burn. Therefore, the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is an infection of leprosy.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:26 - “But if the priest looks at it, and indeed, there is no white hair in the bright spot and it is no deeper than the skin, but is dim, then the priest shall [fn]isolate him for seven days;
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:27 - and the priest shall look at him on the seventh day. If it spreads farther in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is an infection of leprosy.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:28 - “But if the bright spot remains in its place and has not spread in the skin, but is dim, it is the swelling from the burn; and the priest shall pronounce him clean, for it is only the scar of the burn.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:29 - “Now if a man or woman has an infection on the head or on the beard,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:30 - then the priest shall look at the infection, and if it appears to be deeper than the skin and there is thin yellowish hair in it, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is a scale, it is leprosy of the head or of the beard.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:31 - “But if the priest looks at the infection of the scale, and indeed, it appears to be no deeper than the skin and there is no black hair in it, then the priest shall [fn]isolate the person with the scaly infection for seven days.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:32 - “And on the seventh day the priest shall look at the infection, and if the scale has not spread and no yellowish hair has [fn]grown in it, and the appearance of the scale is no deeper than the skin,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:33 - then he shall shave himself, but he shall not shave the scale; and the priest shall [fn]isolate the person with the scale for seven more days.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:34 - “Then on the seventh day the priest shall look at the scale, and if the scale has not spread in the skin and it appears to be no deeper than the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean; and he shall wash his clothes and be clean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:35 - “But if the scale spreads farther in the skin after his cleansing,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:36 - then the priest shall look at him, and if the scale has spread on the skin, the priest need not look for the yellowish hair; he is unclean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:37 - “If in his sight the scale has remained, however, and black hair has grown in it, the scale has healed, and he is clean; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:38 - “When a man or a woman has bright spots on the skin of the [fn]body, white bright spots,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:39 - then the priest shall look, and if the bright spots on the skin of their [fn]bodies are a faint white, it is [fn]eczema that has broken out on the skin; he is clean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:40 - “Now if a man [fn]loses the hair of his head, he is only bald; he is clean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:41 - “And if his head becomes bald at the [fn]front and sides, he is bald on the forehead; he is clean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:42 - “But if on the bald head or the bald forehead there occurs a reddish-white infection, it is leprosy breaking out on his bald head or on his bald forehead.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:43 - “Then the priest shall look at him; and if the swelling of the infection is reddish-white on his bald head or on his bald forehead, like the appearance of leprosy in the skin of the [fn]body,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:44 - he is a leprous man, he is unclean. The priest must pronounce him unclean; his infection is on his head.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:45 - “As for the person who has the leprous infection, his clothes shall be torn and the hair of his head shall be [fn]uncovered, and he shall cover his [fn]mustache and call out, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:46 - “He shall remain unclean all the days during which he has the infection; he is unclean. He shall live alone; he shall live outside the camp.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:47 - “When a garment has [fn]a mark of leprosy in it, whether it is a wool garment or a linen garment,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:48 - whether in [fn]warp or [fn]woof, of linen or of wool, whether in leather or in any article made of leather,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:49 - if the [fn]mark is greenish or reddish in the garment or in the leather, whether in the [fn]warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather, it is a leprous [fn]mark and it shall be shown to the priest.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:50 - “Then the priest shall look at the mark and shall [fn]quarantine the article with the mark for seven days.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:51 - “He shall then look at the mark on the seventh day; if the mark has spread in the garment, whether in the [fn]warp or in the woof, or in the leather, whatever the purpose for which the leather is used, the mark is a [fn]leprous malignancy, it is unclean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:52 - “So he shall burn the garment, whether it is the [fn]warp or the woof, in wool or in linen, or any article of leather, in which the mark occurs; for it is a [fn]leprous malignancy. It shall be burned in the fire.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:53 - “But if the priest looks, and indeed the mark has not spread in the garment, either in the [fn]warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:54 - then the priest shall order them to wash the thing in which the mark occurs, and he shall [fn]quarantine it for seven more days.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:55 - “After the article with the mark has been washed, the priest shall again look, and if the mark has not changed its appearance, even if the mark has not spread, it is unclean; you shall burn it in the fire, whether an eating away has produced bareness on the back or on the front of it.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:56 - “But if the priest looks, and indeed the mark has faded after it has been washed, then he shall tear it out of the garment or out of the leather, whether from the [fn]warp or from the woof;
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:57 - yet if it appears again in the garment, whether in the warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather, it is an outbreak; the article with the mark shall be burned in the fire.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:58 - “But the garment, whether the warp or the woof, or any article of leather from which the mark has disappeared when you washed it, shall then be washed a second time and will be clean.”
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 13:59 - This is the law for the mark of leprosy in a garment of wool or linen, whether in the warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather, for pronouncing it clean or unclean.
