17 and the cormorant, and the great owl, And the swan, and the 18 pelican, and the ger eagle, And the stork, the heron after 19 her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat. 20. All fowls, it should be translated insects, that creep, going 21 upon (all) four, [shall be] an abomination unto you. Yet

these may ye eat of every flying creeping thing that goeth

upon (all] four, which have legs above their feet, to leap 22 withal upon the earth ; (Even) these of them ye may eat ; - the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and

the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind. 23 But all (other) flying creeping things, which have four feet,

[shall be) an abomination unto you. 24. And for these ye shall be unclean : whosoever toucheth 25 the carcass of them shall be unclean until the even. And • whosoever beareth [aught) of the carcass of them shall wash 26 his clothes, and be unclean until the even. [The carcasses)

of every beast which divideth the hoof, and [is] not clover

footed, nor cheweth the cud, [are] unclean unto you : every 27 one that toucheth them shall be unclean. And whatsoever • goeth upon his paws, on his two hands, which has forefeet di

· vided into fingers, as monkies, cats, dogs, bears, among all • manner of beasts that go on (all] four, those [are] unclean

unto you : whoso toucheth their carcass shall be unclean un28 til the even. And he that beareth the carcass of them shalt · wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even : they (are]

unclean unto you. 29 These also [shall be) unclean unto you among the creep. ing things that creep upon the earth ; the weasel, and the 30 mouse, and the tortoise after his kind, And the ferret, and

the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole. 31 These [are) unclean to you among all that creep : whoso

ever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean 32 until the even. And upon whatsoever (any) of them, when

they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean ; whether [it be} • any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever

vessel [it be,] wherein [any] work is done, it must be put

into water, and it shall be unclean until the even ; so it shall 33 be cleansed. And every earthen vessel, whereinto (any) of

them falleth, whatsoever [is] in it shall be unclean ; and ye 34 shall break it. Of all meat which may be eaten, [that] on

which (such] water cometh shall be unclean; and all drink that 55 may be drunk in every (such] vessel shall be unclean. And

every thing] whereupon [any part] of their carcass falleth shall be unclean ; [whether it be] oven, or ranges for pots,

they shall be broken down : [for] they [are] unclean, and 36 shall be unclean unto you. Nevertheless, a fountain or pit,

(wherein there is] plenty of water, shall be clean : but that which toucheth their carcass, the man who draws them out, or 37 the instrument which he uses, shall be unclean. And if (any

part] of their carcass fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it (shall be] clean, because, before it was used it was

to pass through so many changes, that all the contamination 38 would be gone off. But if (any) water be put upon the seed, or

the corn intended for present use, and (any part) of their car39 cass fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you. And if any

beast, of which ye may eat, die of itself, or be strangled, or

torn ; he that toucheth the carcass thereof shall be unclean 40 until the even. And he that eateth of the carcass of it un

knowingly, (for if he did it presumptuously he was to be cut off, Num. xv. and xxx.) shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even : he also that beareth the carcass of it shall

wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even. 41 And every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth,

except those mentioned before, v. 22. [shall be) an abomina42 tion; it shall not be eaten. Whatsoever goeth upon the belly,

and whatsoever goeth upon [ail] four, or whatsoever hath more fect among all creeping things that creep upon the

earth, them ye shall not eat ; for they {are] an abomination. 43 Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping

thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean

with them, that ye should be defiled thereby. . 44 For I (am) the LORD your God : ye shall therefore sanc

tify yourselves, and ye shall be holy ; for I [am] holy : neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth : as I am separated, by

the excellency of my nature, from all other Beings, so shall you, 45 by your purity, from all other people. For 1 [am] the LORD.

that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your

Gorl : ye shall therefore be holy, for I [am] holy. 46 This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every

living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every erea. 47 ture that creepeth upon the earth : To make a difference

between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.

seven days ; according to the days of the separation for her 3 infirmity shall she be unclean. And in the eighth day the

4 Besh of his foreskin shall be circumcised. And she shall

then continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirty days, beside the seven mentioned, v. 2. she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of

her purifying be fulfilled ; but for common things, and all 5 civil affairs, she was clean after the first seven days. But if

she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, double to that for a male, v. 2. as in her separation : and she shall continue in the blood of her purifying threescore and

six days. 6 And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son,

or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt offering, to express her gratitude to God, and implore his blessing on her child, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove for a sin offering, for rather, to cleanse her from her ceremonial

pollution, ch. xv. 30.) unto the door of the tabernacle of the 7 congregation, unto the priest : Who shall offer it before the

LORD, and make an atonement for her ; and she shall be

cleansed from the issue of her blood. This [is] the law for s her that hath borne a male or a female. And if she be not

able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons ; the one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering : and the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.

CHAP. XIII.

Of the tokens to discern the leprosy, 1 AND the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying, ? 1 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a ris

ing, 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 3 Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests : 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 4 pronounce him unclean. 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 : And

the priest shall look on him the seventh day : and, behold, [if] the plague in his șight be at a stay, both in respect to

colour and spreading, [and] the plague spread not in the skin ; 6 then the priest shall shut him up seven days more : 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] in a scab : and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean. 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 8 the priest again : 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 10 be brought unto the priest ; And the priest shall see [him:]

and, behold, sify the rising [be] white in the skin, and it have

turned the hair white, and (there be] quick raw flesh in the 11 rising; It [is] an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and

the priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not shut 12 him up : for he is unclean. 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, where13 soever the priest looketh ; Then the priest sball 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 ; it is only a salt humour of body, 14 thrown out by the strength of his constitution. But when raw

flesh appeareth in him, he shall be unclean. This was a sign

that the poison of the disease was not wholly driven out, but did still lurk within the flesh, and so rendered the disease more

dangerous to him that had it, and more infectious to others. 15 And the priest shall see the raw flesh and pronounce him to

be unclean : (fot] the raw flesh [is] unclean : it [is] a lep16 rosy. Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed unto 17 white, he shall come unto the priest; 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, though he may have the scurvy all over

his body. 18 The flesh also, in which, [even) in the skin thereof, was a 19 boil, and is healed, And in the place of the boil there be a

white rising, or a bright spot, white, and somewhat reddish, 20 and it be shoved to the priest ; 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 un

clean : 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 sev22 en days : And if it spread much abroad in the skin, then the 23 priest shall pronounce him unclean : it [is] a plague. 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 35 bright spot, somewhat reddish, or white ; 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 26 leprosy. 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 27 shut him up seven days : 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 28 plague of leprosy. And if the bright spot stay in his place,

[and] spread not in the skin, but it sbe 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 30 beard ;* 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 bair ; then the priest shall pronounce him un

clean : it [is] a dry scall, [even] a leprosy upon the head 31 or beard. 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 pricst shall shut 32 up (him that hath] the plague of the scall seven days : 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 33 the skin : He shall be shaven, but the scall shall he not

shave : and the priest shall shut up [him that hath] the scall 34 seven days more : 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 35 clothes and be clean. But if the scall spread much in the 36 skin after his cleansing ; Then the priest shall look on him :

and, behold, if the scall be spread in the skin, the priest shall 37 not seek for yellow hair ; he [is] unclean. 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 39 bright spots, [even.) white bright spots ; Then the priest

shall look : and, behold, [if] the bright spots in the skin of

This, among the Romans, was looked upon as a most dreadful distemper, even worse than death,
