The laws and tokens whereby the priest is to be guided in discerning the leprosy.
Leviticus 13:1 And the Lorde spake vnto Moses and Aaron sayinge: Leviticus 13:2 when there appeareth a rysynge in any mans fleshe, ether a scabbe, or a glystrynge whyte: and the plage of leprosye be in the skynne of hys fleshe, he shall be brought vnto Aaron the Preaste, or vnto one of hys sonnes the Preastes: Leviticus 13:3 and the Preaste shall loke on the sore in the skynne of hys fleshe. And whan the heere in the sore is turned vnto whyte, and the sore also seme to be lower then the skynne of his flesh, it wyll be a plage of leprosye, and the Preaste shall loke on hym, and iudge hym vnclene. Leviticus 13:4 If there be but a whyte plecke in the skynne of hys flesh, and seme not to be lower then the skynne, nor the heere therof is turned vnto whyte, the Preaste shall shut him vp seuen dayes. Leviticus 13:5 And the Preaste shall loke vpon hym agayne the seuenth daye: And yf þe plage seme to him to abyde still, & þe plage growe not in the skynne the Preast shall shutt him vp yet .vij. dayes moo. Leviticus 13:6 And the Preast shall loke on hym agayne the .vij. daye. Then yf the plage be darcker, & not growen in the skynne, the Preast shall iudge hym clene, for it is but a skyrf. And he shall washe his clothes, & be clene, Leviticus 13:7 But & yf the scabbe growe in the skynne after that he is sene of the Preast, & iudged clene, he shalbe sene of the prest agayne. Leviticus 13:8 If the preast se þt the scabbe be growen abrode in the skynne, the prest shall make hym vnclene: for it is a leprosye.
Leviticus 13:9 When the plage of leprosye is in a man he shall be brought vnto the Preast, Leviticus 13:10 and the Preast shall se hym. And yf the rysynge be white in the skynne, and haue made the heare whyte, and there be rawe fleshe in the sore Leviticus 13:11 it wylbe an olde leprosye in the skynne of his flesh. And the Preast shall make hym vnclene, and shall not shutte hym vp seynge he is vnclene. Leviticus 13:12 If a leprosye breake out abrode in the skynne, & couer all the skynne, from hys heed to hys foote, whersouer the Preast loketh, Leviticus 13:13 and the Preast loke vpon him. And yf the leprosye haue couered all hys flesh, he shall iudge the plage to be clene because it is all turned into whytnesse, & he shalbe cleane. Leviticus 13:14 But and yf ther be rawe fleshe on him when he is sene, he shalbe vncleane. Leviticus 13:15 And þe Preast shall se þe rawe flesh, and declare him to be vnclene. For the rawe flesh is vnclene seynge it is a leprosye. Leviticus 13:16 Or yf the rawe flesh departe agayne & chaunge vnto whyte, he shall come to the preste, Leviticus 13:17 and the preast shall se him & beholde: If the soore be chaunged vnto whyte the Preast shall iudge the plage cleane & he shalbe cleane:
Leviticus 13:18 The flesh also in whose skinne there is a byle & is healed, Leviticus 13:19 & in the place of þe byle there appeare a whyte rysynge, ether a shynynge whyte & som what reddish, it shall be sene of the Preast. Leviticus 13:20 And yf when the Preast seyth hym, it appeare lower than the skynne, & the heare therof be chaunged vnto whyte, the Preast shall iudge hym vncleane: for it is a plage of leprosye, broken out of the byle. Leviticus 13:21 But & yf the Preast loke on it and there be no whyte heares therin, & yf it be not lower then the skynne, but be darcker, the Preast shall shutt hym vp .vij. dayes. Leviticus 13:22 And yf it sprede abrode in the flesh, the prest shall make hym vncleane, seynge it is the plage. Leviticus 13:23 But and yf the spot stonde styll, & growe not, it is the prynte of an hote byle, and therfore the prest shall declare hym to be cleane.
Leviticus 13:24 Yf there be any flesh, in whose skynne there is a hote burnynge, and the flesh that burneth haue a whyte spott, som what reddysh or whyte, Leviticus 13:25 þe prest shall loke vpon it. And yf the heare in that bryght spot be chaunged to whyte, and it appeare lower then the skynne, it is a leprosye broken out of the burnynge. And therfore the Preaste shall iudge hym vncleane, seynge it is the plage of leprosye. Leviticus 13:26 But yf the preast loke on it & there be no whyte heare in the bryghte spott, and be no lower then the other skynne, but be darcker, the preast shall shut him vp seuen dayes. Leviticus 13:27 And the preast shall loke on hym the seuenth daye: And yf it be growen abroad in the skynne, the preast shall iudge hym vncleane, seynge it is the plage of leprosye. Leviticus 13:28 And yf the spot stonde styll in it, & growe not in the skynne, but is darcke, it is a rysynge of the burnynge, & the Preast shall therfore declare hym cleane, seynge it is the prynte of the burnynge.
Leviticus 13:29 Yf man or woman hath a sore vpon the heed or the beard, the preast shall se it. Leviticus 13:30 And yf it appeare lower than the skynne, & ther be in it a yalowe heare: & thynne the Preast shall iudge him vncleane, seynge that the same fretynge is a token of leprosye vpon the heed or berde. Leviticus 13:31 And yf the preast loke on the sore of the prynt, and it seme not lower then the skynne, and that the heare is not blacke, the Preast shall shut vp the frettynge sore seuen dayes. Leviticus 13:32 And in the seuenth daye the preste shall loke on the sore: and yf the sore be not growen, and there be in it no yalowe hayre, and the sore seme not lower then the skynne, Leviticus 13:33 he shalbe shauen: but the place of the sore shall he not shaue, & the prest shall shut vp the sore seuen dayes moo. Leviticus 13:34 And in the seuenth daye the preste shall loke on the sore: And if the sore be not growen in the skynne, ner seme lower then the other skynne, the preste shall clense hym, & he shall washe hys clothes, and be clene. Leviticus 13:35 But yf the sore growe in the fleshe after hys clensynge, Leviticus 13:36 the preste shall loke on hym. And yf the sore be growne in þe skynne, the preste shall not seke for yelowe heare, for he is vnclene. Leviticus 13:37 But if he se the prynte stonde styll, and that there is blacke heare growne vp therin, the sore is healed, and he shalbe cleane, and the prest shall declare hym to be cleane.
Leviticus 13:38 Yf there be whyte spottes in the skynne of the fleshe of man or woman, Leviticus 13:39 the preast shall loke vpon it. And yf the spottes in the skynne of theyr fleshe be som what darcke & whyte wythall, it is a frekell growynge in the fleshe: Therfore is he cleane. Leviticus 13:40 And the man (whose heade is destitute of heare, wherby he is made balde) is cleane. Leviticus 13:41 And he that hath hys heare out in his foreheede, is foreheed balde and cleane. Leviticus 13:42 If there be in the baulde heed or baulde foreheed a whyte reddysh sore scabbe, there is leprosye spronge vp in hys baulde heed or baulde foreheede. Leviticus 13:43 And the preast shall loke vpon him, and yf the rysynge of the sore be whyte reddysh in hys baulde heed or balde foreheed after the maner of a leprosye which is in the skynne of the fleshe, Leviticus 13:44 then he is a leperous man and vncleane. And the Preaste shall make hym vncleane, for the plage therof is in hys heed. Leviticus 13:45 The leper in whome the plage is, shall haue hys clothes rent, and hys heed bare and shall put a couerynge vpon hys lyppe, and shalbe called vnclene and defyled. Leviticus 13:46 And as longe as the dysease lasteth vpon hym, he shalbe defyled and vncleane: he shall dwell alone, euen wythout the host shall hys habitacyon be.
Leviticus 13:47 The cloth that the plage of leprosye is in, whether it be lynen or wollen, Leviticus 13:48 whether it be in the warpe or woofe of lynen or of wollen: ether in a skynne or any thynge made of skynne, Leviticus 13:49 yf the dysease be pale or som what reddysh in the cloth or skynne: whether it be in the warpe or woofe or any thynge that is made of skynne, then it is a plage of leprosye, and shall be shewed vnto the preaste. Leviticus 13:50 The preaste therfore shall se the plage, and shut it vp seuen dayes, Leviticus 13:51 and loke on the plage the seuenth daye. Whych yf it be increased in the cloth (whether it be in the warpe or woofe, or in a skynne) or in any thynge that is made of skynne it is the leprosy of a fretinge sore: it is vncleane: Leviticus 13:52 & that cloth shalbe burnt, ether warpe or woofe whether it be wollen or lynnen, or any thynge that is made of skynne, where in the plage is, for it is a frettynge leprosye, it shalbe burnt in the fyre. Leviticus 13:53 If the Preaste se that the plage is not growen in the cloth: ether in the warpe or woofe or in whatsoeuer thynge of skynne it be, Leviticus 13:54 the preast shall commaunde them to wasshe the thynge wherin the plage is, and he shall shut it vp seuen dayes moo. Leviticus 13:55 And þe preaste shall loke on the plage agayne, after that it is washed. And yf the plage haue not chaunged hys coloure, and is sprede no further abrode, it is vncleane. Thou shall burne it in the fyre, for it is freat in warde: in parte or in all together. Leviticus 13:56 And yf the Preaste se that the plage is darcker after that it is wasshed, he shall rent it out of the cloth, or out of the skynne, or out of the warpe or out of the woofe. Leviticus 13:57 And yf it appeare any moare in the cloth (ether in the warpe or in the woofe or in any thynge made of skynne) it is a waxinge plage. Thou shalt burne the plage that is in it. Leviticus 13:58 Moreouer the cloth, ether warpe or woofe or whatsoeuer thynge of skynne it be whych thou hast wasshed, yf the plage be departed there from, it shalbe wasshed once agayne: and then shall it be cleane. Leviticus 13:59 Thys is the lawe of the plage of leprosye in a cloth whether it be wollen or lynnen: eyther in the warpe or woofe, or in any thynge of skynnes, to make it cleane or vncleane.
