The laws and tokens whereby the priest is to be guided in discerning the leprosy.
Leviticus 13:1 And ye LORDE spake vnto Moses & Aaron, & sayde: Leviticus 13:2 Whan there ryseth vp eny thinge in the skynne of a mans flesh, whether it be a scabbe or a glistrynge whyte (as though there wolde be a leprosy in ye skynne of his flesh) he shal be brought vnto Aaron the prest, or to one of his sonnes amonge ye prestes. Leviticus 13:3 And whan the prest seyth the plage vpon the skynne of the flesh, that the hayres are turned to whyte, and it seme deper in that place then the other skynne of his flesh, then is it surely a leprosy, therfore shal the prest loke vpon him, and iudge him vncleane. Leviticus 13:4 But whan there is eny whyte plecke in the skynne of his flesh, and yet seme no deper then the other skynne of the flesh, and the hayres be not turned to whyte, the shal the prest shut him vp seuen dayes, Leviticus 13:5 and on ye seuenth daye loke vpon him: yf the plage seme vnto him as afore, & hath frett no deper in the skynne, then shall the prest shut him vp yet seuen dayes mo. Leviticus 13:6 And whan he loketh on him agayne vpon the seuenth daye, and fyndeth, that the plage be darkish, and hath frett no deper in the skynne, the shal he iudge him cleane, for it is but a skyrfe, and he shal wash his clothes, & then is he cleane. Leviticus 13:7 But whan the scabbe fretteth farther in the skynne (after that he is sene of the prest, and iudged cleane) and he be now sene of the prest agayne: Leviticus 13:8 whan the prest seyth the, yt the scabbe hath frett farther in the skynne, he shal iudge him vncleane, for it is surely a leprosy.
Leviticus 13:9 Whan a plage of leprosy is vpo a man, he shalbe brought vnto the prest. Leviticus 13:10 Whan he seyth and fyndeth, that there is whyte rysen vp in the skynne, and the hayre turned vnto whyte, and there be rawe flesh in the sore, Leviticus 13:11 the is it surely an olde leprosy in ye skynne of his flesh, therfore shal the prest iudge him vncleane, and not shut him vp, for he is vncleane allready. Leviticus 13:12 But whan the leprosy breaketh out in the skynne, and couereth the whole skynne, from the heade vnto the fote, all that the prest can se, Leviticus 13:13 So whan the prest loketh vpon it, and fyndeth, that ye leprosy hath couered all the flesh, he shal iudge him cleane, for so moch as it is turned all in to whyte vpon him, for he is cleane. Leviticus 13:14 Notwithstodinge yf there be rawe flesh there, in the daye whan he is loked vpon, the is he vncleane. Leviticus 13:15 And whan the prest seyth ye rawe flesh, he shall iudge him vncleane, for he is vncleane, & it is surely a leprosye. Leviticus 13:16 But yf the rawe flesh chaunge agayne, and be turned in to whyte, then shall he come vnto the prest. Leviticus 13:17 And whan the prest loketh vpon him, and fyndeth, that the plage is turned to whyte, he shall iudge him cleane, for he is cleane.
Leviticus 13:18 Whan there is a byle in the skynne of eny mans flesh, and healeth agayne, Leviticus 13:19 and afterwarde in the same place there aryse vp eny whyte thinge, or a glisterynge whyte somwhat reedish, he shal be sene of the prest. Leviticus 13:20 So whan the prest, seyeth, that it appeareth to be lower then the other skynne, and the hayre turned to whyte, then shall he iudge him vncleane, for it is surely a plage of leprosye broken out of the byle. Leviticus 13:21 But yf the prest se and fynde, that the hayres are not whyte, and it not lower then the other skynne, and is darkysh, he shal shut him vp seuen dayes. Leviticus 13:22 Yf it hath frett farther in the skynne, then shal he iudge him vncleane, for it is surely a plage of leprosye. Leviticus 13:23 But yf the glysterynge whyte abyde styll, and freate no farther, the is it but a prynte of the byle, and the prest shal iudge him cleane.
Leviticus 13:24 Whan the skynne of eny mans flesh is hurt with fyre, and the prynte of the burninge be reedysh or whyte, Leviticus 13:25 and the prest loketh vpon him, and fyndeth the hayre turned to whyte vpon the mark of the burnynge, & it apeare deper then the other skynne, the is there surely a leprosy broke out of ye prynte of ye burnynge: therfore shal ye prest iudge hi vncleane, for it is a plage of leprosye. Leviticus 13:26 But yf the prest se and fynde, that ye hayre vpon the prynte of the burninge is not turned vnto whyte, & is no lower then the other skynne, and is darkish also, he shall shut him vp seuen dayes. Leviticus 13:27 And vpon the seuenth daye he shall loke vpon him: yf it hath frett farther in ye skynne, then shal he iudge him vncleane, for it is a leprosy. Leviticus 13:28 But yf it stode styll vpo the mark of the burnynge, and frett no farther in the skynne, and is darkysh, then is it a sore in ye mark of the burnynge, & the prest shal iudge him cleane, for it is but the prynte of the burnynge.
Leviticus 13:29 Whan a man or woman is skyruye vpon the heade or beerd, and the prest seyth the mark, Leviticus 13:30 and fyndeth that it appeareth deper then the other skynne, and the hayre be there golde and thynne, then shal he iudge him vncleane: for it is a skyrfe of leprosy of the heade or of the beerde. Leviticus 13:31 But yf the prest se that ye skyrfe apeare no deper the the skynne, and that the hayre is not of a pale coloure, he shall shut him vp seue dayes. Leviticus 13:32 And vpo the seuenth daye whan he loketh, and fyndeth, that the skyrfe hath frett no farther, and there be no golden hayre there, and that the skyrfe appeare no deper then the other skynne, Leviticus 13:33 then let him be shauen: but so that he shaue not of the scabbe, and the prest shall shut him vp yet seuen dayes moo. Leviticus 13:34 And vpon the seueth daye wha he loketh, and fyndeth that the skyrfe hath frett no farther in the skynne, and that it apeareth no deper then the other skynne, then shall the prest iudge him cleane. And he shall wash his clothes, for he is cleane. Leviticus 13:35 But yf the scabbe freate farther in the skynne (after yt he is iudged cleane) Leviticus 13:36 and the prest loketh, and fyndeth, that ye scabbe hath frett farther in the skynne, then shal he seke nomore for golden hayres, for he is vncleane. Leviticus 13:37 Neuerthelesse yf he se that the scabbe stondeth styll, & that pale hayres are there rysen vp, then is ye scabbe hole, and he is cleane, therfore shall ye prest iudge him to be cleane.
Leviticus 13:38 Wha there is eny glisteringe whyte vpo ye skynne of the flesh of a man or woman, Leviticus 13:39 and the prest seyth there that the glisterynge whyte vanysheth: then is it but a whyte scabbe rysen vp in ye skynne, & he is cleane. Leviticus 13:40 Whan the hayres fall out of the heade of a man or a woman, so that he is balde, the same is cleane. Leviticus 13:41 If they fall out of his fore heade, then is he fore heade balde & cleane. Leviticus 13:42 But yf there be a whyte reedish sore in the balde heade, or balde fore heade, then is there a leprosy rysen vp in the balde heade or balde foreheade: Leviticus 13:43 therfore shal ye prest loke vpon him. And whan he fyndeth the whyte reedysh sore rysen vp in his balde heade or balde foreheade, then shal ye skynne of the flesh be as leporous, Leviticus 13:44 therfore is he a leporous man and vncleane. And the prest shall iudge him vncleane, because of ye same sore vpo his heade. Leviticus 13:45 Who so now is leporous, his clothes shalbe rent, and the heade bare, & the lippes moffled, and shall in eny wyse be called vncleane. Leviticus 13:46 And as longe as the sore is vpon him, he shal be vncleane, dwell alone, and haue his dwellinge without the hoost.
Leviticus 13:47 Whan the plage of leprosy is in a cloth, whether it be wollen or lynnen, Leviticus 13:48 in the warpe or weft, whether it be lynnen or wollen, or in a skynne, or in eny maner thynge that is made of skynne. Leviticus 13:49 And whan ye plage is pale or reedish in the cloth or skynne, either in the warpe or weft, or in eny maner thinge that is made of skynne, the same is surely the plage of leprosy, therfore shall the prest loke vpon it. Leviticus 13:50 And whan he seyth the plage, he shal shut it vp seuen dayes. Leviticus 13:51 And vpon the seueth daye whan he seyth that ye plage hath frett farther in the cloth, in the warpe or weft, in a skynne or in eny maner thinge that is made of skynne, then is it a fretinge plage of leprosye, and is vncleane. Leviticus 13:52 And the cloth shalbe burnt, either warpe or weft, whether it be wollen or lynne, or eny thynge made of skynne, wherin is eny soch plage. For it is a plage of leprosy, and shal be burnt wt fyre. Leviticus 13:53 But yf the prest se that the plage hath frete no farther in ye cloth, either in the warpe or weft, or eny thinge made of skynne, Leviticus 13:54 then shal he commaunde to wash the thinge that the plage is in, and shall shut it vp other seuen dayes. Leviticus 13:55 And whan the prest seyth (after that the plage is wasshen) yt the plage is not chauged before his eyes, and hath frett no farther also, yet is it vncleane, & shalbe burnt wt fyre: for it is depe frete inwarde, and hath made skyrfes. Leviticus 13:56 Neuertheles whan the prest seyth that the prynte is vanyshed after the washinge of it, then shall he rente it out of the clothe, and of the skynne, out of the warpe or weft. Leviticus 13:57 But yf it appeare eny more in the clothe (either in the warpe, or in the weft) or eny maner thinge made of skynne, then is it a waxinge plage: and with fyre shal it be burnt that eny soch plage is in. Leviticus 13:58 As for the cloth, either warpe or weft, or eny maner thynge made of skynne that is wasshe, and the plage be departed from it, it shalbe wasshen once agayne, & then is it cleane. Leviticus 13:59 This is the lawe ouer the plage of leprosy in clothes, whether they be wollen or lynne (ether in the warpe or in the weft) and in eny maner of thinge made of sknne, to iudge them cleane or vncleane.
