Her offerings for her purifying.
Leviticus 12:6 And when the daies of her purifiing are out: whether it be a sonne or a doughter, she shal brynge a lambe of one yere olde for a burntoffring and a younge pigeon or a turtyl doue for a synneoffryng vnto the dore of the tabernacle of wytnesse vnto þe Preast: Leviticus 12:7 which shal offer them before the Lorde, & make an attonement for her, and so she shalbe purged of her yssue of bloude. Thys is the lawe of her that hath borne a chylde, whether it be male or female. Leviticus 12:8 But & yf she be not able to brynge a shepe, then let her brynge two turtyls or two younge pygeons: the one for the burntoffrynge, and the other for the sinneoffryng. And the Preast shall make an attonement for her, & she shalbe cleane.
