Skin Diseases

1Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
  2“When a person has on the skin of his body a swelling, or a scab, or a spot, and it becomes in the skin of his flesh a disease of leprosy, then he is to be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons the priests.
  3And the priest will examine the disease on the skin of the body, and if the hair in the disease has turned white and the appearance of the disease is deeper than the body’s skin, it is the disease of leprosy; and the priest must examine him and pronounce him unclean.
  4If the bright spot is white in the skin of his body and its appearance is not deeper than the skin, and its hair has not turned white, then the priest must isolate the infected person for seven days.
  5The priest will examine him on the seventh day, and behold, if in his eyes the disease is the same and the disease has not spread on the skin, then the priest must isolate him for seven more days.
  6The priest will examine him again on the seventh day, and behold, if the disease has faded and the disease has not spread in the skin, then the priest is to pronounce him clean. It is a scab. He is to wash his clothes and be clean.
  7But if the scab spreads on the skin after he has shown himself to the priest for his cleansing, he must show himself to the priest again.
  8The priest will examine him, and behold, if the scab has spread on the skin, then the priest must pronounce him unclean. It is leprosy.
 

9“When the disease of leprosy is in a man, then he is to be brought to the priest
  10and the priest will examine him. Behold, if there is a white rising in the skin, and it has turned the hair white, and there is raw flesh in the rising,
  11it is a chronic leprosy in the skin of his body, and the priest must pronounce him unclean. He need not isolate him, for he is unclean.
  12If the leprosy breaks out all over the skin and the leprosy covers all the skin of the infected person as far as the priest can see, from his head even to his feet,
  13then the priest will examine him, and behold, if the leprosy has covered all his flesh, he is to pronounce him clean of the disease. It has all turned white, and he is clean.
  14But whenever raw flesh appears on him, he will be unclean.
  15The priest must examine the raw flesh and pronounce him unclean; the raw flesh is unclean. It is leprosy.
  16But if the raw flesh turns again and is changed to white, then he must go to the priest,
  17and the priest will examine him, and behold, if the disease has turned white, then the priest must pronounce him clean of the disease. He is clean.
 

18“When the body has a boil on its skin, and it has healed,
  19and in the place of the boil there is a white rising or a bright spot, reddish–white, then it must be shown to the priest;
  20and the priest will examine it, and behold, if its appearance is lower than the skin, and its hair has turned white, then the priest must pronounce him unclean. It is the disease of leprosy. It has broken out in the boil.
  21But if the priest examines it, and behold, there are no white hairs in it and it is not deeper than the skin, but has faded, then the priest must isolate him seven days.
  22But if it should spread, yes, spread on the skin, then the priest must pronounce him unclean. It is a disease.
  23But if the bright spot remains where it was and does not spread, it is the scar from the boil and the priest is to pronounce him clean.
 

24“Or when the body has a burn on its skin from fire, and the raw flesh of the burn becomes a bright spot, reddish–white or white,
  25then the priest is to examine it, and behold, if the hair in the bright spot has turned white and its appearance is deeper than the skin, it is leprosy. It has broken out in the burn, and the priest must pronounce him unclean. It is the disease of leprosy.
  26But if the priest examines it, and behold, there is no white hair in the bright spot, and it is not lower than the skin, but is faded, then the priest must isolate him seven days.
  27The priest is to examine him on the seventh day. If it has spread, yes, spread on the skin, then the priest must pronounce him unclean. It is the disease of leprosy.
  28If the bright spot remains where it was and has not spread on the skin, but is faded, it is the swelling from the burn and the priest is to pronounce him clean because it is only the scar from the burn.
 

29“When a man or woman has a disease on the head or on the beard,
  30then the priest is to examine the disease, and behold, if its appearance is deeper than the skin and the hair in it is yellow and thin, then the priest must pronounce him unclean; it is a scall, it is a leprosy of the head or of the beard.
  31If the priest examines the disease of scall, and behold, its appearance is not deeper than the skin and there is no black hair in it, then the priest must isolate the person infected with scall seven days.
  32On the seventh day the priest will examine the disease, and behold, if the scall has not spread and there is no yellow hair in it, and the appearance of the scall is not deeper than the skin,
  33then he must be shaved, but he must not shave the scall; and the priest must quarantine the one who has the scall seven more days.
  34On the seventh day, the priest will examine the scall, and behold, if the scall has not spread on the skin and its appearance is not deeper than the skin, then the priest is to pronounce him clean. He is to wash his clothes and be clean.
  35But if the scall has spread, yes, spread on the skin after his cleansing,
  36then the priest is to examine him, and behold, if the scall has spread on the skin, the priest does not need to look for the yellow hair; he is unclean.
  37But if in his eyes the scall remains where it was and black hair has grown in it, the scall is healed; he is clean. The priest is to pronounce him clean.
 

38“When a man or a woman has bright spots on the skin of the body, white bright spots,
  39then the priest is to examine them, and behold, if the bright spots on the skin of their body are a dull white, it is a harmless rash, it has broken out in the skin; he is clean.
 

40“If a man’s hair has fallen from his head, he is bald. He is clean.
  41If his hair has fallen off from the front part of his head, he is bald on his forehead; he is clean.
  42But if there is on the bald head, or the bald forehead, a reddish-white disease, it is leprosy breaking out on his bald head or his bald forehead.
  43Then the priest is to examine him, and behold, if the rising of the disease is reddish-white on his bald head or on his bald forehead, like the appearance of leprosy in the skin of the flesh,
  44he is a leprous man. He is unclean, yes unclean. The priest must pronounce him unclean. The disease is on his head.
 

45“The leper in whom the disease is must wear torn clothes and the hair of his head must hang loose. He must cover his upper lip and must cry out, ‘Unclean! Unclean!’
  46All the days in which he has the disease he will be unclean. He is unclean. He must live alone; where he lives must be outside of the camp.
 

Regulations About Defiled Fabrics

47“Also, the clothing that the disease of leprosy is on, whether it is woolen clothing or linen clothing,
  48whether it is in warp or woof, of linen or of wool, whether on an animal hide or on anything made of hide,
  49if the disease is greenish or reddish on the clothing or on the skin or in the warp or in the woof, or on anything made of animal hide, it is the disease of leprosy and is to be shown to the priest.
  50The priest is to examine the disease and isolate the disease for seven days.
  51He is to examine the disease on the seventh day. If the disease has spread on the garment, either in the warp or in the woof or on the animal hide, whatever use the hide is used for, the disease is a destructive mildew. It is unclean.
  52He is to burn the garment, whether the warp or the woof, on wool or on linen or anything of animal hide on which the disease is, for it is a destructive mildew. It must be burned in the fire.
 

53“But if the priest examines it, and behold, the plague has not spread on the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or on anything of animal hide,
  54then the priest is to command that they wash the thing in which the disease is and he must isolate it seven more days.
  55Then the priest is to examine it after the disease has been washed. And behold, if the disease has not changed its color even though the disease has not spread, it is unclean. You must burn it in the fire. It is decay, whether the bald spot is on the inside or outside.
 

56“If the priest looks, and behold, the disease has faded after it is washed, then he must tear it out of the garment, or out of the animal hide, or out of the warp, or out of the woof,
  57and if it appears again in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of animal hide, it is spreading. You must burn with fire whatever has the disease.
  58The clothing, either the warp, or the woof, or whatever thing of animal hide it is, you are to wash. If the plague is gone from them, then it is to be washed the second time and it will be clean.
 

59“This is the law for the disease of leprosy on clothing of wool or linen, either in the warp, or the woof, or on anything of animal hide, for pronouncing it clean or for pronouncing it unclean.”
