1 Locutus est Dominus ad Moysen et Aaron dicens:
2 "Homo, in cuius carne et cute ortus fuerit tumor sive pustula aut quasi lucens quippiam, id est plaga leprae, adducetur ad Aaron sacerdotem vel ad unum quemlibet filiorum eius sacerdotum.
3 Qui cum viderit plagam in cute et pilos in album mutatos colorem ipsamque speciem plagae humiliorem cute et carne reliqua: plaga leprae est; quod cum viderit sacerdos, eum immundum esse decernet.
4 Sin autem lucens candor fuerit in cute nec humilior carne reliqua, et pili coloris pristini, recludet eum sacerdos septem diebus.
5 Et considerabit eum die septimo: et, siquidem plaga ultra non creverit nec transierit in cute priores terminos, rursum recludet eum septem diebus aliis.
6 Et die septimo contemplabitur eum iterum: si obscurior fuerit plaga et non creverit in cute, eum mundum esse decernet, quia scabies est. Lavabitque homo vestimenta sua et mundus erit.
7 Quod si, postquam a sacerdote visus est et redditus munditiae, iterum scabies creverit, adducetur ad eum;
8 et, si viderit ita esse, immunditiae condemnabitur: est lepra.
9 Plaga leprae si fuerit in homine, adducetur ad sacerdotem,
10 et videbit eum. Cumque tumor albus in cute fuerit et capillorum mutaverit aspectum in album, caro quoque viva creverit in tumore,
11 lepra vetustissima iudicabitur atque inolita cuti. Contaminabit itaque eum sacerdos et non recludet, quia perspicue immunditia est.
12 Sin autem effloruerit discurrens lepra in cute et operuerit omnem cutem a capite usque ad pedes, quidquid sub aspectu oculorum cadit,
13 considerabit eum sacerdos et teneri lepra mundissima iudicabit, eo quod omnis in candorem versa sit, et idcirco homo mundus erit.
14 Quando vero caro vivens in eo apparuerit, immundus erit.
15 Quod cum sacerdos viderit, inter immundos reputabit; caro enim viva immunda est: lepra est.
16 Quod si rursum versa fuerit in alborem, veniet ad sacerdotem,
17 qui cum hoc consideraverit, eum mundum esse decernet.
18 Caro et cutis, in qua ulcus natum est et sanatum,
19 et in loco ulceris tumor apparuerit albus sive macula subrufa, ostendet se homo sacerdoti.
20 Qui cum viderit locum maculae humiliorem carne reliqua et pilos versos in candorem, contaminabit eum: plaga enim leprae orta est in ulcere.
21 Quod si pilus coloris est pristini et cicatrix subobscura et vicina carne non est humilior, recludet eum septem diebus.
22 Et, siquidem creverit, adiudicabit eum leprae;
23 sin autem steterit in loco suo macula nec creverit, ulceris est cicatrix, et sacerdos eum mundum esse decernet.
24 Vel si alicuius cutem ignis exusserit, et locus exustionis subrufam sive albam habuerit maculam,
25 considerabit eam sacerdos; et ecce pilus versus est in alborem, et locus eius reliqua cute humilior, contaminabit eum, quia plaga leprae in cicatrice orta est.
26 Quod si pilorum color non fuerit immutatus, nec humilior macula carne reliqua, et ipsa leprae species fuerit subobscura, recludet eum septem diebus.
27 Et die septimo contemplabitur eum; si creverit in cute macula, contaminabit eum: plaga est leprae;
28 sin autem in loco suo macula steterit non satis clara, tumor combustionis est, et idcirco mundabit eum, quia cicatrix est combusturae.
29 Vir sive mulier, in cuius capite vel barba germinarit plaga, videbit eam sacerdos.
30 Et, siquidem humilior fuerit locus carne reliqua, et capillus flavus solitoque subtilior, contaminabit eos, quia scabies est, lepra capitis vel barbae.
31 Sin autem viderit plagam scabiei aequalem vicinae carni nec capillum nigrum in ea, recludet eos septem diebus.
32 Et die septimo intuebitur plagam: si non creverit scabies, nec capillus flavus fuerit in ea, et locus plagae carni reliquae aequalis,
33 radetur homo absque loco maculae, et includet eum sacerdos septem diebus aliis.
34 Si die septimo visa fuerit stetisse plaga in loco suo nec humilior carne reliqua, mundabit eum sacerdos; lotisque vestibus mundus erit.
35 Sin autem post emundationem rursus creverit scabies in cute,
36 non quaeret amplius utrum capillus in flavum colorem sit commutatus, quia aperte immundus est.
37 Porro si steterit macula, et capilli nigri fuerint, noverit hominem esse sanatum et confidenter eum pronuntiet mundum.
38 Vir et mulier, in cuius cute maculae, maculae albae apparuerint,
39 intuebitur eos sacerdos. Si deprehenderit subobscurum alborem lucere in cute, sciat impetiginem ortam esse in cute; mundus est.
40 Vir, de cuius capite capilli fluunt, calvus ac mundus est;
41 et, si a fronte ceciderint pili, recalvaster et mundus est.
42 Sin autem in calvitio sive in recalvatione plaga alba vel subrufa fuerit exorta, lepra est capitis.
43 Sacerdos eum videbit, et ecce tumor plagae subrufus secundum aspectum leprae cutis carnis.
44 Vir maculatus est lepra, et sacerdos omnino decernet eum esse immundum; plaga est in capite eius.
45 Leprosus hac plaga percussus habebit vestimenta dissuta, comam capitis excussam, barbam contectam; clamabit: "Immundus! Immundus!".
46 Omni tempore, quo leprosus est immundus, immundus est et solus habitabit extra castra.
47 Si in veste lanea sive linea lepra fuerit,
48 in stamine sive subtemine lineo vel laneo aut in pelle vel quolibet ex pelle confecto,
49 si macula pallida aut rufa fuerit, lepra reputabitur ostendeturque sacerdoti.
50 Qui considerabit macula infectum et recludet septem diebus;
51 et die septimo rursus aspiciens, si crevisse deprehenderit, lepra maligna est; pollutum iudicabit vestimentum et omne, in quo fuerit inventa,
52 et idcirco comburetur flammis.
53 Quod si eam viderit non crevisse,
54 praecipiet, et lavabunt id, in quo plaga est; recludetque illud septem diebus aliis.
55 Et cum viderit post lavationem faciem quidem pristinam non mutatam, nec tamen crevisse plagam, immunda est res, et igne combures eam, eo quod infusa sit plaga in superficie rei vel in parte aversa.
56 Sin autem obscurior fuerit locus plagae, postquam res est lota, sacerdos abrumpet eum et a solido dividet.
57 Quod si macula ultra apparuerit in his rebus, quae prius immaculata erant, lepra volatilis et vaga, igne combures illas.
58 Quas vero laveris et a quibus cessaverit plaga, illas lavabis secundo, et mundae erunt.
59 Ista est lex leprae vestimenti lanei et linei, staminis atque subteminis, omnisque supellectilis pelliceae, quomodo mundari debeat vel contaminari"
King James Version
1 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,
2 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:
3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.
4 If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days:
5 And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread not in the skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:
6 And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague be somewhat dark, and the plague spread not in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean: it is but a scab: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.
7 But if the scab spread much abroad in the skin, after that he hath been seen of the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen of the priest again:
8 And if the priest see that, behold, the scab spreadeth in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a leprosy.
9 ¶ When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought unto the priest;
10 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the rising be white in the skin, and it have turned the hair white, and there be quick raw flesh in the rising;
11 It is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not shut him up: for he is unclean.
12 And if a leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the leprosy cover all the skin of him that hath the plague from his head even to his foot, wheresoever the priest looketh;
13 Then the priest shall consider: and, behold, if the leprosy have covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: it is all turned white: he is clean.
14 But when raw flesh appeareth in him, he shall be unclean.
15 And the priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him to be unclean: for the raw flesh is unclean: it is a leprosy.
16 Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed unto white, he shall come unto the priest;
17 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the plague be turned into white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: he is clean.
18 ¶ The flesh also, in which, even in the skin thereof, was a boil, and is healed,
19 And in the place of the boil there be a white rising, or a bright spot, white, and somewhat reddish, and it be shewed to the priest;
20 And if, when the priest seeth it, behold, it be in sight lower than the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white; the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the boil.
21 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs therein, and if it be not lower than the skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:
22 And if it spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague.
23 But if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not, it is a burning boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.
24 ¶ Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is a hot burning, and the quick flesh that burneth have a white bright spot, somewhat reddish, or white;
25 Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the hair in the bright spot be turned white, and it be in sight deeper than the skin; it is a leprosy broken out of the burning: wherefore the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.
26 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hair in the bright spot, and it be no lower than the other skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:
27 And the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: and if it be spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.
28 And if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not in the skin, but it be somewhat dark; it is a rising of the burning, and the priest shall pronounce him clean: for it is an inflammation of the burning.
29 ¶ If a man or woman have a plague upon the head or the beard;
30 Then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be in sight deeper than the skin; and there be in it a yellow thin hair; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry scall, even a leprosy upon the head or beard.
31 And if the priest look on the plague of the scall, and, behold, it be not in sight deeper than the skin, and that there is no black hair in it; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague of the scall seven days:
32 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague: and, behold, if the scall spread not, and there be in it no yellow hair, and the scall be not in sight deeper than the skin;
33 He shall be shaven, but the scall shall he not shave; and the priest shall shut up him that hath the scall seven days more:
34 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall: and, behold, if the scall be not spread in the skin, nor be in sight deeper than the skin; then the priest shall pronounce him clean: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.
35 But if the scall spread much in the skin after his cleansing;
36 Then the priest shall look on him: and, behold, if the scall be spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for yellow hair; he is unclean.
37 But if the scall be in his sight at a stay, and that there is black hair grown up therein; the scall is healed, he is clean: and the priest shall pronounce him clean.
38 ¶ If a man also or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright spots, even white bright spots;
39 Then the priest shall look: and, behold, if the bright spots in the skin of their flesh be darkish white; it is a freckled spot that groweth in the skin; he is clean.
40 And the man whose hair is fallen off his head, he is bald; yet is he clean.
41 And he that hath his hair fallen off from the part of his head toward his face, he is forehead bald: yet is he clean.
42 And if there be in the bald head, or bald forehead, a white reddish sore; it is a leprosy sprung up in his bald head, or his bald forehead.
43 Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the rising of the sore be white reddish in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, as the leprosy appeareth in the skin of the flesh;
44 He is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall pronounce him utterly unclean; his plague is in his head.
45 And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean.
46 All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his habitation be.
47 ¶ The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it be a woollen garment, or a linen garment;
48 Whether it be in the warp, or woof; of linen, or of woollen; whether in a skin, or in any thing made of skin;
49 And if the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin; it is a plague of leprosy, and shall be shewed unto the priest:
50 And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up it that hath the plague seven days:
51 And he shall look on the plague on the seventh day: if the plague be spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in a skin, or in any work that is made of skin; the plague is a fretting leprosy; it is unclean.
52 He shall therefore burn that garment, whether warp or woof, in woollen or in linen, or any thing of skin, wherein the plague is: for it is a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the fire.
53 And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin;
54 Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more:
55 And the priest shall look on the plague, after that it is washed: and, behold, if the plague have not changed his colour, and the plague be not spread; it is unclean; thou shalt burn it in the fire; it is fret inward, whether it be bare within or without.
56 And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague be somewhat dark after the washing of it; then he shall rend it out of the garment, or out of the skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof:
57 And if it appear still in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin; it is a spreading plague: thou shalt burn that wherein the plague is with fire.
58 And the garment, either warp, or woof, or whatsoever thing of skin it be, which thou shalt wash, if the plague be departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean.
59 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.
