(Read Leviticus 13 Part 1 First)

26 But if the priest discovers that there is no white hair in the affected area and the problem appears to be no more than skin-deep and has faded, then the priest is to put the infected person in quarantine for seven days.

27 If at the end of that time the affected area has spread on the skin, the priest must pronounce that person ceremonially unclean, for it is clearly a contagious skin disease.

28 But if the affected area has not moved or spread on the skin and has faded, it is simply a scar from the burn. The priest must then pronounce the person ceremonially clean.

29 "If anyone, whether a man or woman, has an open sore on the head or chin,

30 the priest must examine the infection. If it appears to be more than skin-deep and fine yellow hair is found in the affected area, the priest must pronounce the infected person ceremonially unclean. The infection is a contagious skin disease of the head or chin.

31 However, if the priest's examination reveals that the infection is only skin-deep and there is no black hair in the affected area, then he must put the person in quarantine for seven days.

32 If at the end of that time the affected area has not spread and no yellow hair has appeared, and if the infection does not appear to be more than skin-deep,

33 the infected person must shave off all hair except the hair on the affected area. Then the priest must put the person in quarantine for another seven days,

34 and he will examine the infection again on the seventh day. If it has not spread and appears to be no more than skin-deep, the priest must pronounce that person ceremonially clean. After washing clothes, that person will be clean.

35 But if the infection begins to spread after the person is pronounced clean,

36 the priest must do another examination. If the infection has spread, he must pronounce the infected person ceremonially unclean, even without checking for yellow hair.

37 But if it appears that the infection has stopped spreading and black hair has grown in the affected area, then the infection has healed. The priest will then pronounce the infected person ceremonially clean.

38 "If anyone, whether a man or woman, has shiny white patches on the skin,

39 the priest must examine the affected area. If the patch is only a pale white, this is a harmless skin rash, and the person is ceremonially clean.

40 "If a man loses his hair and his head becomes bald, he is still ceremonially clean.

41 And if he loses hair on his forehead, he simply has a bald forehead; he is still clean.

42 However, if a reddish white infection appears on the front or the back of his head, this is a contagious skin disease.

43 The priest must examine him, and if he finds swelling around the reddish white sore,

44 the man is infected with a contagious skin disease and is unclean. The priest must pronounce him ceremonially unclean because of the infection.

45 "Those who suffer from any contagious skin disease must tear their clothing and allow their hair to hang loose.* Then, as they go from place to place, they must cover their mouth and call out, `Unclean! Unclean!'1

46 As long as the disease lasts, they will be ceremonially unclean and must live in isolation outside the camp.

47 "Now suppose an infectious mildew* contaminates some woolen or linen clothing,2

48 some woolen or linen fabric, the hide of an animal, or anything made of leather.

49 If the affected area in the clothing, the animal hide, the fabric, or the leather has turned bright green or a reddish color, it is contaminated with an infectious mildew and must be taken to the priest to be examined.

50 After examining the affected spot, the priest will put it away for seven days.

51 On the seventh day the priest must inspect it again. If the affected area has spread, the material is clearly contaminated by an infectious mildew and is unclean.

52 The priest must burn the linen or wool clothing or the piece of leather because it has been contaminated by an infectious mildew. It must be completely destroyed by fire.

53 "But if the priest examines it again and the affected spot has not spread in the clothing, the fabric, or the leather,
