1
Moreouer the Lorde spake vnto Moses, and to Aaron, saying,
2
The man that shall haue in the skin of his flesh a swelling or a skab, or a white spot, so that in the skinne of his flesh it be like the plague of leprosie, then he shalbe brought vnto Aaron the Priest, or vnto one of his sonnes the Priestes,
3
And the Priest shall looke on the sore in the skinne of his flesh: if the heare in the sore be turned into white, and the sore seeme to be lower then the skinne of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosie.
Therefore the Priest shall looke on him, and pronounce him vncleane:
4
But if the white spot be in the skinne of his flesh, and seeme not to bee lower then the skin, nor the heare thereof be turned vnto white, then the Priest shall shut vp him that hath the plague, seuen dayes.
5
After, the Priest shall looke vpon him the seuenth day: and if the plague seeme to him to abide still, and the plague growe not in the skin, the Priest shal shut him vp yet seuen dayes more.
6
Then the Priest shall looke on him againe the seuenth day, and if the plague be darke, and the sore grow not in the skinne, then the Priest shal pronounce him cleane, for it is a skab: therefore he shall washe his clothes and be cleane.
7
But if the skab growe more in the skinne, after that he is seene of ye Priest for to be purged, he shall be seene of the Priest yet againe.
8
Then the Priest shall consider, and if the skab growe in the skin, then the Priest shal pronounce him vncleane: for it is leprosie.
9
When the plague of leprosie is in a man, he shalbe brought vnto the Priest,
10
And the Priest shall see him: and if the swelling be white in ye skin, & haue made ye heare white, and there be rawe flesh in the swelling,
11
It is an old leprosie in the skin of his flesh: and the Priest shall pronounce him vncleane, and shall not shut him vp, for he is vncleane.
12
Also if the leprosie breake out in the skin, and the leprosie couer all the skin of the plague, from his head euen to his feete, wheresoeuer the Priest looketh,
13
Then the Priest shall consider: and if the leprosie couer all his flesh, he shal pronounce the plague to bee cleane, because it is all turned into whitenesse: so he shalbe cleane.
14
But if there be raw flesh on him when he is seene, he shalbe vncleane.
15
For the Priest shall see the rawe flesh, and declare him to be vncleane: for the rawe flesh is vncleane, therefore it is the leprosie.
16
Or if the rawe flesh change and be turned into white, then he shall come to the Priest,
17
And the Priest shal beholde him and if the sore be changed into white, then the Priest shall pronounce the plague cleane, for it is cleane.
18
The flesh also in whose skin there is a bile and is healed,
19
And in ye place of the bile there be a white swelling, or a white spot somewhat reddish, it shal be seene of the Priest.
20
And when the Priest seeth it, if it appeare lower then the skinne, and the heare thereof bee changed into white, ye Priest then shal pronounce him vncleane: for it is a plague of leprosie, broken out in the bile.
21
But if the Priest looke on it, & there be no white heares therein, and if it bee not lower then the skin, but be darker, then the Priest shall shut him vp seuen dayes.
22
And if it spred abroad in the flesh, ye Priest shall pronounce him vncleane, for it is a sore.
23
But if the spot continue in his place, and growe not, it is a burning bile: therefore the Priest shall declare him to be cleane.
24
If there be any flesh, in whose skin there is an hote burning, & the quick flesh of ye burning haue a white spot, somewhat reddish or pale,
25
Then the Priest shall looke vpon it: and if the heare in that spot be changed into white, and it appeare lower then the skin, it is a leprosie broken out in the burning therefore the Priest shall pronounce him vncleane: for it is the plague of leprosie.
26
But if the Priest looke on it, and there be no white heare in the spot, and be no lower then the other skinne, but be darker, then the Priest shall shut him vp seuen dayes.
27
After, the Priest shall looke on him the seuenth day: if it be growen abroad in the skinne, then the Priest shall pronounce him vncleane: for it is the plague of leprosie.
28
And if the spot abide in his place, not growing in the skin, but is darke, it is a rising of the burning: the Priest shall therefore declare him cleane, for it is the drying vp of the burning.
29
If also a man or woman hath a sore on the head or in the beard,
30
Then the Priest shall see his sore: and if it appeare lower then the skin, and there be in it a smal yelow heare, then the Priest shal pronouce him vncleane: for it is a blacke spot, and leprosie of the head or of the beard.
31
And if the Priest looke on the sore of the blacke spotte, and if it seeme not lower then the skinne, nor haue any blacke heare in it, then the Priest shall shut vp him, that hath the sore of the blacke spot, seuen dayes.
32
After, in the seuenth day the Priest shall looke on the sore: and if the blacke spot growe not, and there be in it no yelowe heare, and the blacke spot seeme not lower then the skinne,
33
Then he shalbe shauen, but the place of the blacke spot shall he not shaue: but the Priest shall shut vp him, that hath the blacke spot, seuen dayes more.
34
And the seuenth day the Priest shall looke on the blacke spot: and if the blacke spot growe not in the skinne, nor seeme lower then the other skinne, then the Priest shall clense him, and hee shall wash his clothes, and be cleane.
35
But if the blacke spot growe abroad in the flesh after his clensing,
36
Then the Priest shall looke on it: & if the blacke spot grow in the skin, the Priest shall not seeke for the yelowe heare: for he is vncleane.
37
But if ye blacke spot seeme to him to abide, and that blacke heare growe therein, the blacke spot is healed, he is cleane, and the Priest shall declare him to be cleane.
38
Furthermore if there bee many white spots in the skin of the flesh of man or woman,
39
Then the Priest shall consider: and if the spots in the skin of their flesh be somewhat darke and white withall, it is but a white spot broken out in the skin: therefore he is cleane.
40
And the man whose heare is fallen off his head, and is balde, is cleane.
41
And if his head lose the heare on the forepart, and be balde before, he is cleane.
42
But if there be in the balde head, or in the balde forehead a white reddish sore, it is a leprosie springing in his balde head, or in his balde forehead.
43
Therefore the Priest shall looke vpon it, & if the rising of the sore bee white reddish in his balde head, or in his bald forehead, appearing like leprosie in the skin of the flesh,
44
He is a leper and vncleane: therefore the Priest shall pronounce him altogether vncleane: for the sore is in his head.
45
The leper also in whom the plague is, shall haue his clothes rent, and his head bare, & shall put a couering vpon his lips, and shal cry, I am vncleane, I am vncleane.
46
As long as the disease shall be vpon him, he shalbe polluted, for he is vncleane: he shall dwell alone, without the campe shall his habitation be.
47
Also the garment that the plague of leprosie is in, whether it be a wollen garment or a linen garment,
48
Whether it bee in the warpe or in ye woofe of linen or of wollen, either in a skin, or in any thing made of skin,
49
And if the sore be greene or somewhat reddish in the garment or in ye skin, or in the warpe, or in the woofe, or in any thing that is made of skin, it is a plague of leprosie and shalbe shewed vnto the Priest.
50
Then the Priest shall see the plague, and shut vp it that hath the plague, seuen dayes,
51
And shall looke on the plague the seuenth day: if the plague growe in the garment or in the warpe, or in the woofe, or in the skinne, or in any thing that is made of skin, that plague is a fretting leprosie and vncleane.
52
And hee shall burne the garment, or the warpe, or the woofe, whether it bee wollen or linen, or any thing that is made of skin, wherein the plague is: for it is a freating leprosie, therefore it shalbe burnt in the fire.
53
If the Priest yet see that the plague grow not in the garment, or in the woofe, or in whatsoeuer thing of skin it be,
54
Then the Priest shall commaunde them to wash the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it vp seuen dayes more.
55
Againe ye Priest shall looke on the plague, after it is washed: and if the plague haue not changed his colour, though the plague haue spred no further, it is vncleane: thou shalt burne it in the fire, for it is a fret inwarde, whether the spot bee in the bare place of the whole, or in part thereof.
56
And if the Priest see that the plague bee darker, after that it is washed, he shall cut it out of the garment, or out of the skin, or out of the warpe, or out of the woofe.
57
And if it appeare stil in ye garment or in the warpe, or in the woofe, or in any thing made of skin, it is a spreading leprie: thou shalt burne the thing wherein the plague is, in the fire.
58
If thou hast washed ye garment or ye warpe, or ye woofe, or whatsouer thing of skin it be, if the plague be departed therefrom, then shal it be washed the second time, and be cleane.
59
This is the lawe of the plague of leprosie in a garment of wollen or linnen, or in the warpe, or in the woofe, or in any thing of skin, to make it cleane or vncleane.
