Skin Diseases

1Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
  2“When a man may have a rising in his body’s skin, or a scab, or a bright spot, and it becomes in the skin of his body the plague 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 plague in the skin of the body, and if the hair in the plague has turned white and the appearance of the plague is deeper than the body’s skin, it is the plague 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 plague is arrested and the plague hasn’t spread in 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 plague has faded and the plague hasn’t 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 plague 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 from his head even to his feet as far as it appears to the priest,
  13then the priest will examine him, and behold, if the leprosy has covered all his flesh, he is to pronounce him clean of the plague. It has all turned white: he is clean.
  14But whenever raw flesh appears in him, he will be unclean.
  15The priest must examine the raw flesh and pronounce him unclean: the raw flesh is unclean. It is leprosy.
  16Or if the raw flesh turns again and is changed to white, then he must come to the priest,
  17and the priest will examine him, and behold, if the plague has turned white, then the priest must pronounce him clean of the plague. 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 plague 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 isn’t deeper than the skin, but is dim, 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 plague.
  23But if the bright spot stays in its place and hasn’t spread, it is the scar from the boil; and the priest is to pronounce him clean.
 

24“Or when the body has a burn from fire on its skin, 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 burning, and the priest must pronounce him unclean. It is the plague of leprosy.
  26But if the priest examines it, and behold, there is no white hair in the bright spot, and it isn’t lower than the skin, but is faded, then the priest must isolate him seven days.
  27The priest will 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 plague of leprosy.
  28If the bright spot stays in its place, and hasn’t spread in the skin, but is faded, it is the swelling from the burn and the priest is to pronounce him clean; for it is the scar from the burn.
 

29“When a man or woman has a plague on the head or on the beard,
  30then the priest must examine the plague, 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 an itch, it is leprosy of the head or of the beard.
  31If the priest examines the plague of itching, and behold, its appearance isn’t deeper than the skin and there is no black hair in it, then the priest must isolate the person infected with itching seven days.
  32On the seventh day the priest will examine the plague, and behold, if the itch hasn’t spread and there is no yellow hair in it, and the appearance of the itch isn’t deeper than the skin,
  33then he must be shaved, but he must not shave the itch; and the priest must shut him up who has the itch seven more days.
  34On the seventh day, the priest will examine the itch; and behold, if the itch hasn’t spread in the skin and its appearance isn’t deeper than the skin, then the priest is to pronounce him clean. He is to wash his clothes and be clean.
  35But if the itch has spread, yes, spread on the skin after his cleansing,
  36then the priest is to examine him, and behold, if the itch has spread in the skin, the priest should not look for the yellow hair; he is unclean.
  37But if in his eyes the itch is arrested, and black hair has grown in it, the itch is healed, he is clean. The priest is to pronounce him clean.
 

38“When a man or a woman has bright spots in the skin of the body, even 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 forehead bald. He is clean.
  42But if there is in the bald head, or the bald forehead, a reddish–white plague; it is leprosy breaking out in his bald head or his bald forehead.
  43Then the priest is to examine him, and behold, if the rising of the plague is reddish–white in his bald head or in his bald forehead, like the appearance of leprosy in the skin of the flesh,
  44he is a leprous man. He is unclean. “Unclean, unclean,” must the priest pronounce him. His plague is on his head.
 

45“The leper in whom the plague is is to 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 the plague is in him he will be unclean. He is unclean. He must live alone. His dwelling-place must be outside of the camp.
 

Regulations About Defiled Fabrics

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

53“If the priest examines it, and behold, the plague hasn’t spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin,
  54then the priest is to command that they wash the thing in which the plague is and he must isolate it seven more days.
  55Then the priest is to examine it, after the plague is washed; and behold, if the plague hasn’t changed its color and the plague hasn’t spread, it is unclean; you must burn it in the fire. It is a mildewed spot, whether the bareness is inside or outside.
 

56“If the priest looks, and behold, the plague has faded after it is washed, then he must tear it out of the garment, or out of the skin, 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 skin, it is spreading. You must burn with fire that in which the plague is.
  58The garment, either the warp, or the woof, or whatever thing of skin it is, that you are to wash, if the plague has departed from them, then it is to be washed the second time and it will be clean.
 

59“This is the law of the plague of mildew in a garment of wool or linen, either in the warp, or the woof, or in anything of skin, to pronounce it clean or to pronounce it unclean.”
