1 And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, saying:
2 when someone has a tumor on his skin, or depriving, or a stain, and a leprosy ulcer becomes on his skin, he must be brought to Aaron the priest, or to one of his sons, the priests;
3 the priest will examine the ulcer on the skin of the body, and if the hair on the ulcer has changed to white, and the ulcer is deepened in the skin of his body, then this is a leprosy ulcer; the priest, having examined him, will pronounce him unclean.
4 And if on the skin of his body his spot is white, but it will not be recessed into the skin, and the hair on it has not changed to white, then the priest [having] an ulcer must be closed for seven days;
5 on the seventh day, the priest will examine him, and if the ulcer remains in its form and the ulcer does not spread on the skin, the priest must imprison him for another seven days;
6 on the seventh day, the priest will examine him again, and if the ulcer is less noticeable and the ulcer does not spread on the skin, then the priest should declare it clean: it is depriving, and let him wash his clothes and be clean.
7 If lichens begin to spread over the skin, after he appeared to the priest for purification, then he must again appear to the priest;
eight the priest, seeing that lichens spread on the skin, will pronounce him unclean: this is leprosy.
nine If there is an ulcer of leprosy on anyone, then he must be brought to the priest;
ten the priest will examine, and if the tumor on the skin is white, and the hair has changed to white, and the tumor is live meat,
eleven then this is a chronic leprosy on the skin of his body; and the priest will pronounce him unclean and imprison him, for he is unclean.
12 If leprosy blooms on the skin and covers the leprosy all over the patient’s skin from his head to his feet, as much as the priest’s eyes can see,
13 and the priest sees that leprosy has covered his whole body, then he will declare the patient clean, because everything has turned to white: he is clean.
fourteen When live meat appears on him, he is unclean;
fifteen the priest, seeing live meat, will pronounce it unclean; live meat is unclean: it is leprosy.
16 If the living meat changes and turns into white, let it come to the priest;
17 the priest will examine him, and if the ulcer turns to white, the priest will declare the patient clean; he is clean.

18 If anyone had an abscess on his skin and healed,
19 and at the site of the abscess a white tumor appeared, or a spot is white or reddish, then he should appear to the priest;
20 the priest will examine him, and if it is lower than the skin, and his hair turns white, then the priest will pronounce him unclean: it is an ulcer of leprosy, it blossomed in an abscess;
21 if the priest sees that the hair on her is not white, and she is not lower than the skin, and, moreover, is not noticeable, then the priest will imprison him for seven days;
22 if it begins to spread very much over the skin, the priest will pronounce it unclean: it is an ulcer;
23 if the stain remains in place and does not spread, then this is inflammation of the abscess, and the priest will declare it clean.
24 Or if someone has a burn on their skin and a reddish or white spot appears on a healed burn,
25 and the priest will see that the hair on the spot has changed to white, and it will be deepened in the skin, then this is leprosy, it bloomed on a burn; and the priest will pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy;
26 if the priest sees that the hair on the spot is not white, and it is not lower than the skin, and, moreover, is not noticeable, then the priest will imprison him for seven days;
27 on the seventh day, the priest will examine him, and if it is very spread on the skin, the priest will pronounce him unclean: it is a ulcer of leprosy;
28 if the stain remains in place and does not spread over the skin, and moreover, is not noticeable, then this is a tumor from a burn; the priest will declare it clean, for it is inflammation from a burn.
29th If a man or woman has an ulcer on his head or beard,
thirty and the priest will examine the ulcer, and it will be deepened in the skin, and the hair on it is yellowish thin, then the priest will pronounce it unclean: this is lousy, this is leprosy on the head or beard;
31 if the priest examines the ulcer of lousiness and it is not deepened in the skin, and the hair on it is not black, then the priest [having] the ulcer of lousiness will imprison for seven days;
32 on the seventh day, the priest will examine the ulcer, and if the lousiness does not spread, and there is no yellowish hair on it, and the lousiness will not be deepened in the skin,
33 then [the patient] should be sheared, but the lousy place should not be sheared, and the priest should be again lousy for seven days;
34 on the seventh day, the priest will examine the lousiness, and if the lousiness does not spread over the skin and does not appear to be deepened in the skin, the priest will declare it clean; may he wash his clothes and be clean.
35 If after cleansing it will be very lousy on the skin,
36 and the priest will see that the lousiness spreads over the skin, then the priest should not look for yellowish hair: he is unclean.
37 If the lousiness remains in its form, and the hair is shown on it black, then the lousiness has passed, it is clean; the priest will declare him clean.

38 If a man or woman has spots on their skin, they are white,
39 and the priest will see that their spots on the skin of the body are pale white, then this is lichen that has blossomed on the skin: it is clean.
40 If [hair] got out on someone’s head, then this is bald: it is clean;
41 and if [hair] got out on the front side of the head, then this is bald: it is clean.
42 If there is a white or reddish spot on the bald patches or on the bald spot, then leprosy has blossomed on his bald patches or on his bald spot;
43 the priest will examine him, and if he sees that the ulcer tumor is white [or] reddish on his shoulders or on his bald spot, it looks like leprosy of the skin of a body,
44 then he is a leper; he is unclean; the priest must pronounce him unclean; he has an ulcer on his head.
45 The leper, on which this ulcer, should be torn, his head should not be covered, and to his lips he should be closed and shouting: unclean! unclean!
46 All the days, as long as he has an ulcer, he must be unclean, unclean; he must live separately, outside his camp is his dwelling.

47 If the leprosy ulcer is on clothes, on wool clothes, or on linen clothes,
48 or on the basis of, or on a weft of linen or wool, or on leather, or on some leather product,
49 and the stain will be greenish or reddish on the clothes, or on the skin, or on the base, or on the weft, or on some kind of leather thing - this is an ulcer of leprosy: it should show it to the priest;
50 the priest will examine the ulcer and imprison the infected person for seven days;
51 on the seventh day the priest will inspect the infected, and if the ulcer has spread through clothing, or on the base, or on the weft, or on the skin, or on some product made of leather, then this is leprosy caustic, unclean ulcer;
52 he must burn clothes, or warp, or ducks, woolen or linen, or some kind of leather thing, on which there will be an ulcer, for it is caustic leprosy: it must burn on fire.
53 If the priest sees that the ulcer has not spread through clothing, or from the base, or from the weft, or from any kind of leather thing,
54 then the priest will order to wash what the ulcer is on, and he will again imprison for seven days;
55 if, after washing the infected [thing], the priest sees that the ulcer has not changed his appearance and the ulcer has not spread, then it is unclean, burn it on fire; it is a eaten yamina on the front side or on the inside;
56 if the priest sees that the ulcer after washing her has become less noticeable, then let the priest tear it from clothes, or from the skin, or from the base, or from the weft.
57 If she again appears on clothes, or on the base, or on a duck, or on some kind of leather thing, then this is a flourishing ulcer: burn on the fire what the ulcer is on.
58 If you wash your clothes, or warp, or ducks, or some leather thing, and get an ulcer from them, you should wash them a second time, and they will be clean.
59 Here is the law on leprosy ulcer on clothes made of wool or linen, or on the basis and on a weft, or on some leather thing, how to declare it clean or unclean.
