Purification after Childbirth

1Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying,
  2“Speak to the children of Israel, saying: If a woman conceives and bears a male child, then she will be unclean seven days; as in the days of her monthly period she will be unclean.
  3In the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin must be circumcised.
  4She will continue in the blood of purification 33 days. She must not touch any holy thing, nor come into the sanctuary until the days of her purifying are completed.
  5But if she bears a female child, then she will be unclean two weeks as in her period; and she will continue in the blood of purification 66 days.

6“When the days of her purification are completed, for a son or for a daughter, she is to bring to the priest at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting a year old lamb for a burnt offering, and a young pigeon or a turtledove for a sin offering;
  7and he will offer it before Yahweh and make atonement for her, and she will be cleansed from the fountain of her blood. This is the law for she who bears, whether a male or a female.
  8If she cannot afford a lamb, then she may take two turtledoves or two young pigeons, the one for a burnt offering and the other for a sin offering, and the priest will make atonement for her and she will be clean.”
