Numbers 19:1 And the LORDE spake vnto Moses & Aaro & sayde: Numbers 19:2 This custome shall be a lawe, which the LORDE hath comaunded, & sayde: Speake vnto ye children of Israel, yt they brynge vnto ye a reed cow without spot, wherin is no blemysh, & vpon who there came neuer yock: Numbers 19:3 and ye shal geue her vnto Eleasar the prest, which shall brynge her without the hooste, and cause her to be slayne there before him. Numbers 19:4 And Eleasar ye prest shal take of hir bloude with his fynger, and sprenckle it seuen tymet straight towarde the dore of the Tabernacle of witnesse, and cause the cow to be burnt before him, Numbers 19:5 both hir skynne and hir flesh, and hir bloude also with hir donge. Numbers 19:6 And the prest shal take Ceder wodd and ysope, and purple woll, and cast it vpo the cow as she burneth, Numbers 19:7 & he shal washe his clothes, and bathe his body with water, and the go in to the hoost, and be vncleane vntyll ye eue. Numbers 19:8 And he that burnt her, shal wash his clothes also with water, and bathe his body in water, & be vncleane vntyll ye euen. Numbers 19:9 And one yt is cleane, shal gather vp the asshes of ye cow, and poure them without the hoost in a cleane place, that they maye be kepte there, for sprenklinge water to the congregacion of the childre of Israel, for it is a synofferinge. Numbers 19:10 And he that gathered vp the asshes of the cow, shall wash his clothes, and be vncleane vntyll the euen. This shalbe a perpetuall lawe vnto ye children of Israel, and to the straungers that dwell amonge you.
The law for the use of it in purification of the unclean.
Numbers 19:11 Who so now toucheth a deed ma, shal be vncleane seuen dayes: Numbers 19:12 the same shall purifie himself herewith, on the thirde daye and on the seuenth daie, and then shall he be cleane. And yf he puryfye not himself on the thirde daye, & on the seuenth daye, the shall he not be cleane. Numbers 19:13 But wha eny ma toucheth a deed personne, and wil not purifie himself, he defyleth the dwellynge of the LORDE, and the same soule shal be roted out of Israel, because the sprenklinge water is not sprenkled vpon him: and he is vncleane, as longe as he letteth not himself be pourged therof. Numbers 19:14 This is the lawe. Whan a ma dyeth in ye tente, who so euer goeth in to the tente, and all yt is in the tente, shal be vncleane seue daies. Numbers 19:15 And euery open vessel that hath no lydd nor couerynge, is vncleane. Numbers 19:16 And who so euer toucheth one yt is slayne wt the swerde vpon ye felde, or eny other deed, or a deed mans bone, or a graue, ye same is vncleane seue dayes. Numbers 19:17 So now for the vncleane personne, they shal take of ye asshes of this burntsynofferinge, & put springinge water theron in to a vessell, Numbers 19:18 and a cleane man shall take ysope, & dyppe it in the water, and sprenkle it vpon the tente, and vpon all the vessels, and all the soules that are therin. Likewyse also vpon him, yt hath touched a deed mans bone, or a slayne personne, or a deed body, or a graue. Numbers 19:19 And he that is cleane, shal sprenkle vpon the vncleane, ye thirde daye, & the seueth daie, & purifye him on ye seueth daye. And he shal washe his clothes, & bathe him self wt water, and so at euen he shalbe cleane. Numbers 19:20 But he yt is vncleane, and wil not purifye him self, ye same soule shal be roted out of ye cogregacion. For he hath defyled the Sanctuary of the LORDE, & is not sprekled wt spreklinge water, therfore is he vncleane. And this shalbe a perpetuall lawe vnto the. And he yt sprenkled wt the spreklinge water, shall wash his clothes also. Numbers 19:21 And who so euer toucheth the spreklinge water, shal be vncleane vntill the euen. Numbers 19:22 And what so euer he toucheth, shalbe vncleane: & loke what soule he toucheth, shalbe vncleane vntill the euen.
