The purification of a woman after childbirth.
Leviticus 12:1 And the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, Leviticus 12:2 Speake vnto the children of Israel, and say, When a woman hath brought forth seede, & borne a manchilde, shee shalbe vncleane seuen dayes, like as she is vncleane when she is put apart for her disease. Leviticus 12:3 (And in the eight day, the foreskin of the childes flesh shalbe circumcised) Leviticus 12:4 And she shal continue in the blood of her purifying three and thirtie dayes: she shal touch no halowed thing, nor come into the Sanctuarie, vntil the time of her purifying be out. Leviticus 12:5 But if she beare a mayde childe, then shee shalbe vncleane two weekes, as when shee hath her disease: and she shal continue in the blood of her purifying three score and sixe dayes.
Her offerings for her purifying.
Leviticus 12:6 Nowe when the dayes of her purifying are out, (whether it be for a sonne or for a daughter) shee shal bring to the Priest a lambe of one yeere olde for a burnt offering, and a yong pigeon or a turtle doue for a sinne offring, vnto the doore of the Tabernacle of the Congregation, Leviticus 12:7 Who shal offer it before the Lord, & make an atonement for her: so she shalbe purged of the issue of her blood this is the law for her that hath borne a male or female. Leviticus 12:8 But if she bee not able to bring a lambe, she shall bring two turtles, or two yong pigeons: the one for a burnt offring, and the other for a sinne offring: and the Priest shall make an atonement for her: so she shal be cleane.
