The laws and tokens whereby the priest is to be guided in discerning the leprosy.
Leviticus 13:1 And the Lorde spake vnto Moses & vnto Aaron saying: Leviticus 13:2 when there appeareth a risyng in any mans flesh ether a scabbe or a glystring whyte: as though the plage of leprosye were in the skynne of hys fleshe, then let hym be brought vnto Aaron the Preaste or vnto one of hys sonnes the Preastes, Leviticus 13:3 and let þe Preast loke on the sore that is in the skynne of hys flesh. If the heyre in the soore be turned vnto white, & the sore also seme to be lower then the skynne of his fleshe, then it is surely a leprosye, & let the Preast loke on hym, & iudge hym vncleane. Leviticus 13:4 If there be but a whyte plecke in þe skynne of his flesh, and seme not to be lower then þe other skynne nor the heyre therof is turned vnto whyte: then let the Preast shut him vp seuen daies. Leviticus 13:5 And let the Preast loke vpon him the .vij. day: yf the sore seme to hym to abyde styl & to go no further in the skynne, then let the Preast shut hym vp yet .vij. dayes moo. Leviticus 13:6 And let the Preast loke on him agayn þe .vij. day. Then yf the soore be waxed blackesh, & is not growen abroode in the skynne, let the Preast make him cleane, for it is but a skyrf. And let hym wasshe his clothes, & then he is cleane. Leviticus 13:7 But & yf þe scabbe growe in þe skynne after that he is sene of the Preast agayne. Leviticus 13:8 If the Preast se þt the scabbe be growen abrode in the skynne, let him make him vncleane: for it is surely a leprosye.
Leviticus 13:9 If the plage of leprosie be in a man, let him be brought vnto the Preast, Leviticus 13:10 & let the Preaste se hym. If the rysyng appeare whyte in the skynne, & haue also made the heyre whyte, & there be rawe flesh in the sore also: Leviticus 13:11 then it is an old leprosye in þe skynne of his flesh. And the Preast shall iudge him vnclene, and shal not shutte hym vp for he is vncleane. Leviticus 13:12 If a leprosye breake out in the skynne and couer all the skynne from the heed to þe foote ouer all whersoeuer the Preast loketh, Leviticus 13:13 then let the Preast loke vpon hym. If the leprosye haue couered al his fleshe, let hym iudge the dysease clene: for in as moche as he is altogether whyte he is therfore cleane. Leviticus 13:14 But and yf there be rawe flesh on him when he is sene, then he shalbe vncleane. Leviticus 13:15 Therfore when the Preast seeth the rawe flesh, let him iudge hym vnclene. For in as moche as hys fleshe is rawe, he is vnclene and it is surely a true leprosye. Leviticus 13:16 But and yf the rawe flesh departe agayne & chaunge vnto whyte, then let hym come to the prest, Leviticus 13:17 & let the Preast se hym: If the soore be chaunged vnto whyte, let the Preast iudge the dysease cleane, and then he is cleane.
Leviticus 13:18 When there is a byle in the skynne of any mans flesh and is healed Leviticus 13:19 & after in the place of þe byle there appeare a whyte rysing ether a shynyng whyte somwhat reddysh, let hym be sene of the Preast. Leviticus 13:20 If when the Preast seyth hym it appeare lower than the other skynne & the heyre therof be chaunged vnto white, let the Preast iudge hym vncleane: for it is a very leprosye, that is broken out in the place of the byle. Leviticus 13:21 But and yf when the Preast loketh on it there be no whyte heyres therin nether the scabbe lower then þe other skynne and be somwhat blackesh, then the Preast shall shutt him aparte .vij. dayes. Leviticus 13:22 If it sprede abrode in the meane ceason, then let the Preast iudge hym vncleane: for it is a leprosye. Leviticus 13:23 But and yf the glystrynge whyte abyde styl in one place & go no further, then it is but the prynte of the byle, and the Preast shall iudge hym cleane.
Leviticus 13:24 When þe skynne of any mans flesh is burnt with fyre that it be rawe & there appere in þe burnyng a glistring whyte that is somwhat reddysh or altogether whyte, Leviticus 13:25 let the Preast loke vpon it. If the heyre in that bryghtnesse be chaunged to whyte, and it also appeare lower then the other skynne, then it is a leprosye that is broken out of the place of the burning. And the Preast shal iudge him vncleane, for it is a leprosye. Leviticus 13:26 But and yf (when the Preast loketh on it) he se that there is no whyte heyre in the bryghtenesse, & þt it is no lower then the other skynne, & that it is also blackesh, then let the preast shut him vp .vij. dayes. Leviticus 13:27 And yf (when the Preast loketh on him the .vij. day) it be growen abrode in the skynne, let hym iudge hym vncleane: for it is a leprosye. Leviticus 13:28 But and yf that bryghtnesse abyde styl in one place & go no further in þe skynne & be blackesh, then it is but a rysynge in the place of the burnynge, and the Preast shall make hym cleane: for it is but the prynte of the burnyng only.
Leviticus 13:29 When ether man or woman hath a breakyng out vpon the heed or the beerde, let the preast se it. Leviticus 13:30 And yf it appeare lower than the other skynne, & ther be therin golden heyres & thyn, let the preast iudge hym vncleane, for it is a breakyng out of leprosye vpon the heed or berde. Leviticus 13:31 If (when the Preast loketh on the breakynge out) he se that it is no lower then the other skynne & þt there are blacke heyres therin, let hym shut hym vp .vij. dayes. Leviticus 13:32 And let the preast loke on the dysease the .vij. day: & yf the breakyng out be gone no forther nether be any golden heyres therin nether the scabbe be lower then the other skynne, Leviticus 13:33 then let him be shauen, but let hym not shaue the scabbe: & let þe preast shut hym vp .vij. dayes moo. Leviticus 13:34 And let the preast loke on the breakyng out the .vij. day agayn: If the breakynge out be gone no further in the skynne nor moore lower then þe other skynne, then let the preast iudge hym cleane, and let hym wasshe hys clothes, & then he is cleane. Leviticus 13:35 If the breakyng out growe in the skynne after that he is once iudged cleane, Leviticus 13:36 let the Preast sea him. If it be growne abrode in dede in the skynne, let the preast seke no further for any golden heyres, for he is vncleane. Leviticus 13:37 But and yf he se that the scabbe stande styll, & þt there is blacke heyre growne vp therin, then the scabbe is healed and he is cleane: & the Preast shal iudge him cleane.
Leviticus 13:38 If there be found in the skynne of the flesh of man or woman a glysteryng whyte, Leviticus 13:39 let the Preast se it. If there appeare in theyr flesh a glysteryng whyte somwhat blackesh then it is but frekels growen vp in þe skinne: and he is cleane. Leviticus 13:40 If a mans heyre fal of his heed, then he is heed baulde & cleane. Leviticus 13:41 If his heyre fal before in his foreheed, then he is foreheedbald and cleane. Leviticus 13:42 If there be in the bauld heed or bauld foreheed a reddish whyte scabbe, then there is leprosye spronge vp in hys baulde heed or baulde foreheede. Leviticus 13:43 And let the preast se it: and yf the rysyng of the sore be reddysh whyte in his baulde heede or foreheed after the maner of a leprosie in the skynne of the flesh, Leviticus 13:44 then he is a leper & vncleane: & the Preast shal iudge him vncleane, for the plage of his heed. Leviticus 13:45 And the leper in whome the plage is, shall haue his clothes rent & his heede bare & hys mouth moffeld, & shalbe called vncleane. Leviticus 13:46 And as long as the dysease lasteth vpon him, he shalbe vncleane: for he is vncleane, and shall therfore dwel alone, & euen without the host shal hys habitacion be.
Leviticus 13:47 When the plage of leprosye is in a cloth: whether it be lynen or wollen, Leviticus 13:48 ye & whether it be in the warpe or woofe of the linen or of the wollen: ether in a skynne or any thing made of skynne, Leviticus 13:49 yf the dysease be pale or somwhat 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 very leprosye, & must be shewed vnto the Preast. Leviticus 13:50 And when the Preast seyth the plage, let hym shut it vp .vij. dayes, Leviticus 13:51 & let hym loke on the plage the .vij. day. If 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, then the plage is a freatyng leprosy, and it is vncleane: Leviticus 13:52 & that cloth shalbe burnt, ether warp or woof, whether it be wollen or lynen or any thynge that is made of skynne where in the plage is, for it is a freating leprosy, & shalbe burnt in the fyre. Leviticus 13:53 If the preast se that the plage hath freaten no further in the cloth: ether in the warpe or woofe or in whatsoeuer thynge of skynne it be, Leviticus 13:54 then let the preast commaunde them to wash the thynge wherin the plage is, and let hym shut it vp .vij. dayes moo. Leviticus 13:55 And let the preast loke on it agayne after that the plage is wasshed. If the plage haue not chaunged hys facion though it be spred no further abrode, it is yet vncleane. And se that ye burne it in the fyre, for it is freat inwarde: whether in parte or in altogether. Leviticus 13:56 But & yf the preast se that it is somwhat blackysh after that it is washed, let him rent it out of the cloth, or out of the skynne or oute of the warpe or woofe. Leviticus 13:57 But and yf it appeare any more in the cloth ether in the warpe or in the woofe or in anye thynge made of skynne, then it is a waxyng plage. And se that ye burne that wyth fyre, wherin the plage is. Leviticus 13:58 Moreouer the cloth ether warpe or woofe or whatsoeuer thynge of skynne it be which thou hast wasshed and the plage be departed from it, shalbe wasshed once agayne: and then it is cleane. Leviticus 13:59 Thys is the lawe of the plage of leprosye in a cloth whether it be wollen or linen: eyther whether it be in the warpe or woofe, or in any thynge made of skynnes, to iudge it cleane or vncleane.
