Leviticus 13


13:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,
13:2 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a
 scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh [like]
 the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought to Aaron the
 priest, or to one of his sons the priests:
13:3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the
 flesh: and [when] the hair in the plague is turned white, and
 the plague in sight [is] deeper than the skin of his flesh, it
 [is] a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and
 pronounce him unclean.
13:4 If the bright spot [is] white in the skin of his flesh, and
 in sight, not deeper than the skin, and the hair of it not
 turned white; then the priest shall shut up [him that hath] the
 plague seven days:
13:5 And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and
 behold, [if] the plague in his sight is at a stay, [and] the
 plague spreadeth not in the skin; then the priest shall shut
 him up seven days more:
13:6 And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day: and
 behold, [if] the plague [is] somewhat dark, [and] the plague
 spreadeth not in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him
 clean: it [is but] a scab: and he shall wash his clothes, and
 be clean.
13:7 But if the scab shall spread much in the skin, after he
 hath been seen by the priest for his cleansing, he shall be
 seen by the priest again:
13:8 And [if] the priest shall see, that behold, the scab
 spreadeth in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him
 unclean: it [is] a leprosy.
13:9 When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be
 brought to the priest:
13:10 And the priest shall see [him]: and behold, [if] the
 rising [is] white in the skin, and it hath turned the hair
 white, and [there is] raw flesh in the rising;
13:11 It [is] an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the
 priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not shut him up;
 for he [is] unclean.
13:12 And if a leprosy shall break out in the skin, and the
 leprosy shall cover all the skin of [him that hath] the plague
 from his head even to his foot, wherever the priest looketh;
13:13 Then the priest shall consider: and behold, [if] the
 leprosy hath covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce [him]
 clean [that hath] the plague: it is all turned white: he [is]
 clean.
13:14 But when raw flesh appeareth in him, he shall be unclean.
13:15 And the priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him
 to be unclean: [for] the raw flesh [is] unclean: it [is] a
 leprosy.
13:16 Or if the raw flesh shall turn again, and be changed into
 white, he shall come to the priest;
13:17 And the priest shall see him: and behold, [if] the plague
 is turned into white: then the priest shall pronounce [him]
 clean [that hath] the plague: he [is] clean.
13:18 The flesh also, in which, [even] in the skin of it, was a
 boil, and is healed,
13:19 And in the place of the boil there shall be a white
 rising, or a bright spot, white, and somewhat reddish, and it
 be showed to the priest;
13:20 And if, when the priest seeth it, behold, it [is] in sight
 lower than the skin, and the hair of it [is] turned white; the
 priest shall pronounce him unclean: it [is] a plague of leprosy
 broken out of the boil.
13:21 But if the priest shall look on it, and behold, [there
 are] no white hairs in it, and [if] it [is] not lower than the
 skin, but somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up
 seven days:
13:22 And if it hath spread much in the skin, then the priest
 shall pronounce him unclean: it [is] a plague.
13:23 But if the bright spot shall stay in its place, [and] not
 spread, it [is] a burning boil; and the priest shall pronounce
 him clean.
13:24 Or if there [is any] flesh, in the skin of which [there
 is] a hot burning, and the live [flesh] that burneth hath a
 white bright spot, somewhat reddish or white;
13:25 Then the priest shall look upon it: and behold, [if] the
 hair in the bright spot [is] turned white, and it [is 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.
13:26 But if the priest shall look on it, and behold, [there is]
 no white hair in the bright spot, and it [is] no lower than the
 [other] skin, but [is] somewhat dark; then the priest shall
 shut him up seven days:
13:27 And the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: [and]
 if it [is] spread much in the skin, then the priest shall
 pronounce him unclean: it [is] the plague of leprosy,
13:28 And if the bright spot shall stay in its place, [and] not
 spread in the skin, but [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.
13:29 If a man or woman shall have a plague upon the head or the
 beard;
13:30 Then the priest shall see the plague: and behold, if it
 [is] in sight deeper than the skin, [and there is] in it a
 yellow thin hair; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean:
 it [is] a dry scall, [even] a leprosy upon the head or beard.
13:31 And if the priest shall look on the plague of the scall,
 and behold, it [is] not in sight deeper than the skin, and no
 black hair in it; then the priest shall shut up [him that hath]
 the plague of the scall seven days:
13:32 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the
 plague: and behold, [if] the scall spreadeth not, and there is
 in it no yellow hair, and the scall [is] not in sight deeper
 than the skin;
13:33 He shall be shaven, but the scall shall he not shave; and
 the priest shall shut up [him that hath] the scall seven days
 more:
13:34 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall:
 and behold, [if] the scall is not spread in the skin, nor [is]
 in sight deeper than the skin; then the priest shall pronounce
 him clean: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.
13:35 But if the scall shall spread much in the skin after his
 cleansing;
13:36 Then the priest shall look on him: and behold, if the
 scall is spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for
 yellow hair; he [is] unclean.
13:37 But if the scall shall be in his sight at a stay, and
 there is black hair grown in it; the scall is healed, he [is]
 clean: and the priest shall pronounce him clean.
13:38 If a man also or a woman shall have in the skin of their
 flesh bright spots, [even] white bright spots;
13:39 Then the priest shall look: and behold, [if] the bright
 spots in the skin of their flesh [are] darkish white; it [is] a
 freckled spot [that] groweth in the skin; he [is] clean.
13:40 And the man whose hair hath fallen off his head, he [is]
 bald; [yet is] he clean.
13:41 And he that hath his hair fallen off from the part of his
 head towards his face, he [is] forehead-bald; [yet is] he
 clean.
13:42 And if there is in the bald head, or bald forehead, a
 white reddish sore; [it is] a leprosy sprung up on his bald
 head, or his bald forehead.
13:43 Then the priest shall look upon it: and behold, [if] the
 rising of the sore is white reddish on his bald head, or on his
 bald forehead, as the leprosy appeareth in the skin of the
 flesh;
13:44 He is a leprous man, he [is] unclean: the priest shall
 pronounce him utterly unclean; his plague [is] in his head.
13:45 And the leper in whom the plague [is], his clothes shall
 be rent, and his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon
 his upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean.
13:46 All the days in which the plague [shall be] in him he
 shall be defiled; he [is] unclean: he shall dwell alone,
 without the camp [shall] his habitation [be].
13:47 The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in,
 [whether] a woolen garment, or a linen garment;
13:48 Whether in the warp, or woof, of linen, or of woolen:
 whether in a skin, or in any thing made of skin:
13:49 And if the plague is greenish or reddish in the garment,
 or in the skin, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any
 thing of skin: it [is] a plague of leprosy, and shall be shown
 to the priest:
13:50 And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up
 [that which hath] the plague seven days:
13:51 And he shall look on the plague on the seventh day: if the
 plague is spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the
 woof, [or] in a skin, [or] in any work that is made of skin:
 the plague [is] a fretting leprosy; it [is] unclean.
13:52 He shall therefore burn that garment, whether warp or
 woof, in woolen or in linen, or any thing of skin, in which the
 plague is: for it [is] a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in
 the fire.
13:53 And if the priest shall look, and behold, the plague is
 not spread in the garment, either in the warp or in the woof,
 or in any thing of skin;
13:54 Then the priest shall command that they wash [the thing]
 in which the plague [is], and he shall shut it up seven days
 more:
13:55 And the priest shall look on the plague after it is
 washed: and behold, [if] the plague hath not changed its color,
 and the plague hath not spread; it [is] unclean; thou shalt
 burn it in the fire; it [is] fret inward, [whether] it [is]
 bare within or without.
13:56 And if the priest shall look, and behold, the plague [is]
 somewhat dark after the washing of it; then he shall rend it
 out of the garment, or out of the skin, or out of the warp, or
 out of the woof:
13:57 And if it shall appear still in the garment, either in the
 warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin; it [is] a
 spreading [plague]: thou shalt burn that in which the plague
 [is], with fire.
13:58 And the garment, either warp, or woof, or whatever thing
 of skin [it is], which thou shalt wash, if the plague hath
 departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time,
 and shall be clean.
13:59 This [is] the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of
 woolen or linen, either in the warp or woof, or any thing of
 skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.
