  • "If a woman cannot afford to bring a sheep, she must bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons. One will be for the whole burnt offering and the other for the purification offering. The priest will sacrifice them, thus making atonement for her, and she will be ceremonially clean." - Leviticus 12:8

  • "If some of the people notice a swelling or a rash or a shiny patch on their skin that develops into a contagious skin disease,* they must be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons.1 - Leviticus 13:2

  • The priest will then examine the affected area of a person's skin. If the hair in the affected area has turned white and appears to be more than skin-deep, then it is a contagious skin disease, and the priest must pronounce the person ceremonially unclean. - Leviticus 13:3

  • "But if the affected area of the skin is white but does not appear to be more than skin-deep, and if the hair in the spot has not turned white, the priest will put the infected person in quarantine for seven days. - Leviticus 13:4

  • On the seventh day the priest will make another examination. If the affected area has not changed or spread on the skin, then the priest will put the person in quarantine for seven more days. - Leviticus 13:5

  • The priest will examine the skin again on the seventh day. If the affected area has faded and not spread, the priest will pronounce the person ceremonially clean. It was only a temporary rash. So after washing the clothes, the person will be considered free of disease. - Leviticus 13:6

  • But if the rash continues to spread after this examination and pronouncement by the priest, the infected person must return to be examined again. - Leviticus 13:7

  • If the priest notices that the rash has spread, then he must pronounce this person ceremonially unclean, for it is a contagious skin disease. - Leviticus 13:8

  • "Anyone who develops a contagious skin disease must go to the priest for an examination. - Leviticus 13:9

  • If the priest sees that some hair has turned white and an open sore appears in the affected area, - Leviticus 13:10

  • "Now suppose the priest discovers after his examination that a rash has broken out all over someone's skin, covering the body from head to foot. - Leviticus 13:12

  • The priest must make this pronouncement as soon as he sees an open sore because open sores indicate the presence of a contagious skin disease. - Leviticus 13:15

  • However, if the open sores heal and turn white like the rest of the skin, the person must return to the priest. - Leviticus 13:16
