Leviticus - Chapter 14
FREE Catholic Classes
1 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
5 He will then order one of the birds to be slaughtered in an earthenware pot over running water.
8 The person who is being purified will then wash all clothing, shave off all hair, and wash, and will then be clean. After this he will return to the camp, although he will remain outside his tent for seven days.
10 'On the eighth day he will take two unblemished lambs, an unblemished ewe one year old, three-tenths of wheaten flour mixed with oil for the cereal offering, and one log of oil.
13 He will then slaughter the lamb on that spot inside the holy place where the victims for the sacrifice for sin and for the burnt offering are slaughtered. This reparatory offering, like the sacrifice for sin, will revert to the priest: it is especially holy.
15 He will then take the log of oil and pour a little into the hollow of his left hand.
17 He will then take some of the oil left in the hollow of his hand and put it on the lobe of the right ear, the thumb of the right hand, and the big toe of the right foot of the person being purified, in addition to the blood of the sacrifice of reparation.
18 The rest of the oil in the hollow of his hand he will put on the head of the person who is being purified. This is how the priest will perform the rite of expiation for such a person before Yahweh.
21 'If he is poor and cannot afford all this, he need take only one lamb, the one for the sacrifice of reparation, and this will be presented with the gesture of offering to perform the rite of expiation for him. And for the cereal offering he will only take one-tenth of wheaten flour mixed with oil, and the log of oil,
25 He will then slaughter the lamb for the sacrifice of reparation, take some of its blood and put it on the lobe of the right ear, the thumb of the right hand and the big toe of the right foot of the person who is being purified.
26 He will pour the oil into the hollow of his left hand,
28 He will then put some of the oil on the lobe of the right ear, the thumb of the right hand and the big toe of the right foot of the person who is being purified, as he did with the blood of the sacrifice of reparation.
30 Of the two turtledoves or two young pigeons -- whatever he has been able to afford -- he will offer
31 a sacrifice for sin with one, and with the other a burnt offering with a cereal offering -- whatever he has been able to afford. This is how the priest will perform before Yahweh the rite of expiation for the person who is being purified.
32 'Such is the law concerning someone with a contagious skin-disease who cannot afford the means of purification.'
37 and if on examination he finds the walls of the house pitted with reddish or greenish depressions which appear to be eating away the wall,
40 he will order the infected stones to be removed and thrown into some unclean place outside the town.
42 The stones will then be replaced with new ones and the house given a new coat of plaster.
46 'Anyone who enters the house while it is closed will be unclean until evening.
50 He will slaughter one of the birds in an earthenware pot over running water.
54 'Such is the law governing all kinds of skin-disease and tinea,
55 diseases of clothing and houses,
57 Such is the law on skin-diseases.'
