Bodily Discharges

1Yahweh spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
  2“Speak to the children of Israel, and tell them, ‘When any man—any man—has a discharge from his body, because of his discharge he is unclean.
  3This is to be his uncleanness in regard to his discharge: whether his body flows freely with his discharge or his body stops up the discharge, it is his uncleanness.
  4Every bed on which he who has the discharge lies will be unclean, and everything he sits on will be unclean.
  5Whoever touches his bed is to wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.
  6He who sits on anything on which the man who has the discharge sat is to wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.
  7He who touches the body of him who has the discharge is to wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.
  8If the one who has the discharge spits on someone who is clean, then he is to wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.
  9Whatever means of riding the one who has the discharge rides on will be unclean.
  10Whoever touches anything that was under the one who was unclean will be unclean until the evening. He who carries those things is to wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.
  11Anyone the one who has the discharge touches, unless he has first rinsed his hands in water, that one is to wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.
  12And, an earthen vessel that the one who has the discharge touches must be broken; and every vessel of wood must be rinsed in water.
 

13“When he who has a discharge is cleansed of his discharge, then he is to count to himself seven days for his cleansing and wash his clothes; and he is to bathe his flesh in living water and will be clean.
  14On the eighth day he must take two turtledoves or two young pigeons and come before Yahweh to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting and give them to the priest,
  15and the priest is to offer them, the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. The priest will make atonement for him before Yahweh for his discharge.
 

16“If any man has an emission of semen, then he is to bathe all his flesh in water and be unclean until the evening.
  17Every garment and every skin on which the semen is must be washed with water and be unclean until the evening.
  18If a man lies with a woman and there is an emission of semen, they are to both bathe themselves in water and be unclean until the evening.
 

19“If a woman has a discharge and her discharge from her flesh is blood, she will be in her impurity seven days, and whoever touches her will be unclean until the evening.
  20Everything that she lies on in her impurity will be unclean. Everything also that she sits on will be unclean.
  21Whoever touches her bed is to wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.
  22Whoever touches anything that she sits on is to wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.
  23If it is on the bed or on anything on which she sits, when he touches it he will be unclean until the evening.
  24If any man lies with her and her monthly flow is on him, he will be unclean seven days; and every bed on which he lies will be unclean.
 

25“If a woman has a discharge of her blood many days not in the time of her period, or if she has a discharge beyond the time of her period, all the days of the discharge of her uncleanness will be as in the days of her period; she is unclean.
  26Every bed on which she lies all the days of her discharge will be to her as the bed of her period, and everything on which she sits will be unclean, as the uncleanness of her period.
  27Whoever touches these things will be unclean, and must wash his clothes and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.
  28But if she is cleansed of her discharge, then she is to count to herself seven days, and after that she will be clean.
  29On the eighth day she must take two turtledoves or two young pigeons and bring them to the priest to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting.
  30The priest is to offer the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest will make atonement for her before Yahweh for the uncleanness of her discharge.
 

31“Thus you must separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness, so they will not die in their uncleanness when they defile my tabernacle that is in their midst.
  32This is the law of him who has a discharge and of him who has an emission of semen, so that he is unclean by it;
  33and of her who has her period, and of a man or woman who has a discharge, and of him who lies with her who is unclean.”
