Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:1 - Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:3 - and the priest shall go out to a place outside of the camp. Then the priest shall look, and if the [fn]leprous infection has been healed in the person with leprosy,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:4 - then the priest shall give orders to take two live clean birds, cedar wood, a [fn]scarlet string, and hyssop for the one who is to be cleansed.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:5 - “The priest shall also give orders to slaughter the one bird in an earthenware vessel over [fn]running water.

Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:10 - “Now on the eighth day he is to take two male lambs without defect, and a yearling ewe lamb without defect, and three-tenths of an [fn]ephah of fine flour mixed with oil as a grain offering, and one [fn]log of oil;
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:11 - and the priest who is going to pronounce him clean shall present the person to be cleansed and [fn]the offerings before the LORD at the doorway of the tent of meeting.

Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:13 - “Next he shall slaughter the male lamb in the place where they slaughter the [fn]sin offering and the burnt offering, at the place of the sanctuary—for the guilt offering, like the [fn]sin offering, belongs to the priest; it is most holy.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:14 - “The priest shall then take some of the blood of the guilt offering, and the priest shall put it on the lobe of the right ear of the one to be cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot.

Cleansing a Leprous House

Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:33 - The LORD further spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying:
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:34 - “When you enter the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as a possession, and I put a spot of leprosy on a house in the land of your possession,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:35 - then the one who owns the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, ‘Something like a spot of leprosy has become visible to me in the house.’
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:36 - “The priest shall then command that they empty the house before the priest goes in to look at the spot, so that everything in the house need not become unclean; and afterward the priest shall go in to look at the house.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:37 - “So he shall look at the spot, and if the spot on the walls of the house has greenish or reddish depressions and appears deeper than the [fn]surface,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:38 - the priest shall come out of the house, to the [fn]doorway, and [fn]quarantine the house for seven days.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:39 - “Then the priest shall return on the seventh day and [fn]make an inspection. If the spot has indeed spread on the walls of the house,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:40 - the priest shall order them to pull out the stones with the spot on them and throw them away [fn]at an unclean place outside the city.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:41 - “And he shall have the house scraped all around [fn]inside, and they shall dump the plaster that they scrape off at an unclean place outside the city.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:42 - “Then they shall take other stones and replace the discarded stones, and he shall take other plaster and replaster the house.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:43 - “If, however, the spot breaks out again in the house after he has pulled out the stones and scraped the house, and after it has been replastered,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:44 - then the priest shall come in and [fn]make an inspection. If he sees that the spot has indeed spread in the house, it is a malignant spot in the house; it is unclean.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:45 - The owner shall therefore tear down the house, its stones, its timbers, and all the plaster of the house, and he shall take them outside the city to an unclean place.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:46 - “Moreover, whoever goes into the house during the time that he has [fn]quarantined it, becomes unclean until evening.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:47 - “Likewise, whoever lies down in the house shall wash his clothes, and whoever eats in the house shall wash his clothes.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:48 - “If, on the other hand, the priest comes in and [fn]makes an inspection and the spot has not indeed spread in the house after the house has been replastered, then the priest shall pronounce the house clean because the spot has [fn]not reappeared.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:49 - “To cleanse the house then, he shall take two birds, cedar wood, a [fn]scarlet string, and hyssop,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:50 - and he shall slaughter the one bird in an earthenware vessel over [fn]running water.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:51 - “Then he shall take the cedar wood, the hyssop, and the [fn]scarlet string, with the live bird, and dip them in the blood of the slaughtered bird as well as in the [fn]running water, and sprinkle the house seven times.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:52 - “So he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird and with the [fn]running water, along with the live bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop, and the [fn]scarlet string.
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:53 - “However, he shall let the live bird go free outside the city into the open field. So he shall make atonement for the house, and it will be clean.”
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:54 - This is the law for any spot of leprosy—even for a scale,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:55 - and for the leprous garment or house,
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:56 - and for a swelling, for a scab, and for a bright spot—
Unchecked Copy BoxLev 14:57 - to teach [fn]when they are unclean and [fn]when they are clean. This is the law of leprosy.
