The rites and sacrifices in cleansing of the leper.
Leviticus 14:1 And the Lorde spake vnto Moses sayinge: Leviticus 14:2 this is the lawe of a leper when he shalbe clensed: He shalbe brought vnto the Preast, Leviticus 14:3 & the Preast shall go out wythout the hoste & loke vpon hym. If the plage of leprosye be healed in the leper, Leviticus 14:4 then shal the Preast commaunde that there be brought for hym that shalbe clensed two lyuynge byrdes that are cleane, and cedar wood, and a pece of purple cloth and ysope. Leviticus 14:5 And the Preast shall commaunde that one of the byrdes be killed in an erthen vessel wyth renning water. Leviticus 14:6 And the Preast shall take the lyuyng byrde and the cedar wood and the purple & the ysope, & shall dyppe them and the lyuyng byrde in the bloude of the slayne byrde, & in the renning water Leviticus 14:7 & sprynkle it vpon him that must be clensed of hys leprosye seuen tymes and clense him, and shal let the lyuyng byrd goo fre in to the feldes. Leviticus 14:8 And he that is clensed shall wasshe hys clothes and shaue of al hys heyre, and wash him self in water, and then he is cleane. And after that he shall come into the hoste, but shall tarye wythout hys tent seuen dayes. Leviticus 14:9 When the seuenth day is come, he shal shaue of al hys heyre bothe vpon his heade & hys berde & on hys browes: & euen al the heyre þt is on him, shalbe shauen of. And he shal wash hys clothes and his flesh in water, and then he shalbe cleane. Leviticus 14:10 And when þe .viij. day is come, let him take .ij. lambes without blemyshe & a yewe lambe of a yere olde without blemysh, and .iij. tenth deales of fyne floure for a meatoffring myngled wyth oyle, and logge of oyle. Leviticus 14:11 Than let the Preast that maketh him cleane, bring the man that is made cleane wyth those thinges before the Lorde vnto the dore of the tabernacle of wytnesse. Leviticus 14:12 And let the Preast take one of the lambes & offer hym for a trespace offryng, and the logge of oyle: and waue them before the Lorde. Leviticus 14:13 And then let hym slee the lambe in the place where the synneoffrynge and the burntoffryng are slayne: euen in the holy place. For as the synneoffring is, euen so is the trespace offryng the Preastes: for it is moost holy. Leviticus 14:14 Then let the Preast take of the bloude of the trespace offryng, & put it vpon the typpe of the ryght eare of him that is clensed, and vpon the thombe of hys ryght hande, and vpon the great too of hys ryghte fote. Leviticus 14:15 Then let the Preast take of the logge of oyle, and poure it into the palme of hys lefte hande, Leviticus 14:16 & dyppe hys ryght fynger in the oyle that is in the palme of hys left hande, and let hym sprynkle it with hys fynger .vij. tymes before the Lord. Leviticus 14:17 And of the rest of the oyle that is in hys hande, shal the preast put vpon the typpe of the ryghte eare of hym that is clensed, and vpon the thombe of hys ryght hand, and vpon the great too of hys ryght foote: euen vpon the bloud of the trespaceoffryng. Leviticus 14:18 And the remnaunte of the oyle that is in the Preastes hande, he shal poure vpon the heed of hym that is cleansed: & so shal the Preaste make an attonement for hym before the Lorde. Leviticus 14:19 Then let the Preast offer the sinneoffring and make an attonement for him that is clensed for his vnclennesse. And then let þe burntoffryng be slayne, Leviticus 14:20 and let the preast put both the burntoffrynge & the meatoffrynge vpon the alter: & make an attonement for him, and then he shalbe cleane. Leviticus 14:21 If he be poore and can not get so moch, then let hym bryng one lambe for a trespace offring to waue it and to make an attonement for him, and a tenth deale of fyne floure myngled wyth oyle for a meat offryng, and a logge of oyle, Leviticus 14:22 & two turtyl doues or two yonge pygeons which he is able to get, & let the one be a synneoffrynge and þe other a burntoffryng. Leviticus 14:23 And let him bryng them the .viij. day for hys clensyng vnto the preast to the dore of the tabernacle of wytnesse before the Lorde. Leviticus 14:24 And let the Preast take the lambe that is the trespace offryng & the logge of oyle, and waue them before the Lorde. Leviticus 14:25 And when the lambe of the trespaceoffrynge is kylled, the Preast shal take of the bloud of the trespace offrynge, and put it vpon the typpe of hys ryghte eare that is clensed, and vpon the thombe of hys ryghte hande, and vpon the greate too of hys ryght fote. Leviticus 14:26 And the preast shall poure of the oyle into hys ryght hand, Leviticus 14:27 and shall sprynkle wyth his fynger of þe oyle that is in hys left hande seuen tymes before the Lorde. Leviticus 14:28 And the Preast shall put on the oyle þt is in his hand vpon the typpe of the right eare of hym that is clensed, & vpon the thombe of hys ryght hande, & vpon the great too of hys ryght fote: euen in the place where the bloud of the trespaceoffryng was put. Leviticus 14:29 And the rest of the oyle that is in his hand, he shall poure vpon the heed of hym that is clensed: to make an attonement for him before the Lord. Leviticus 14:30 And he shall offer one of the turtyl doues or of the young pigeons, soche as he can gett: Leviticus 14:31 the one for a synne offerynge & the other for a burntoffryng vpon the alter. And so shal the Preast make an attonement for him that is clensed before the Lorde. Leviticus 14:32 Thys is the lawe of hym that hath the plage of leprosye, whose hande is not able to get that whyche pertayneth to hys clensynge.
The signs of leprosy in a house.
Leviticus 14:33 And the Lord spake vnto Moses & Aaron saying: Leviticus 14:34 when he be come vnto the land of Canaan which I geue you to possesse: yf I put the plage of leprosye in any house of the lande of youre possessyon, Leviticus 14:35 let hym that oweth the house go & tel the preast sayinge: me thynke þt there is as it were a leprosy in the house Leviticus 14:36 And the Preast shal commande them to ryd all thyng out of the house, before the Preast go in to se the plage: that he make not al that is in the house vncleane, and then the preast shal go in & se the house. Leviticus 14:37 If the preast se that the plage is in the walles of the house, and that there be holowe strakes pale or redde which seme to be lower then the other partes of the wall, Leviticus 14:38 then let the preast go out at the house dores, and shut vp the house for .vij. dayes. Leviticus 14:39 And let the Preast come agayn the seuenth daye and se it: yf the plage be increased in the walles of the house Leviticus 14:40 let the Preast commaunde them to take away the stones in whych the plage is, and let them cast them in a foule place without the cytye, Leviticus 14:41 and scrape the house wythin round about: & poure oute the dust wythout the cytye in a foule place. Leviticus 14:42 And let them take other stones, & put them in the places of those stones, and other morter, and plaster the house wyth al. Leviticus 14:43 If now the plage come agayne & breake out in the house, after that they haue taken away the stones and scraped the house, and after that the house is playstered anewe: Leviticus 14:44 let the preast come and se it. And yf then he perceyue that the plage hath eaten further in the house, then it is a freting leprosy that is in þe house, & it is vncleane. Leviticus 14:45 Then they shal breake doune the house: both stones, tymbre & al the morter of the house, and carye it out of the citye vnto a foule place. Leviticus 14:46 Moreouer he that goeth into the house all the whyle that it is shut vp, shalbe vncleane vntyll nyghte. Leviticus 14:47 And he that slepeth in the house shall wasshe hys clothes and he also that eateth in the house shal wash hys clothes.
The cleansing of that house.
Leviticus 14:48 But and yf the Preast come & se that the plage hath sprede no further in the house after that it is new plastered, then let hym make it cleane, for the plage is healed. Leviticus 14:49 And let hym take to clense the house, wyth all: two byrdes, cedar wood, and purple clothe and ysope. Leviticus 14:50 And let hym kyll one of the byrdes in an erthen vessel with runnyng water: Leviticus 14:51 & take the cedar wood, the ysope, the purple and the lyuyng byrde, and dyppe them in the bloude of the slayne byrde and in the runnyng water, and sprinkle vpon the house seuen tymes Leviticus 14:52 and clense the house wyth the bloude of the byrde and wyth the runnyng water, & wyth the lyuyng byrd, and wyth the cedar wood, and the ysope, and the purple clothe. Leviticus 14:53 And he shal let the lyuyng byrde flee out of þe towne in to the wylde feldes, and so make an attonement for the house, and it shalbe cleane. Leviticus 14:54 Thys is the lawe of al maner plage of leprosye and breakyng out, Leviticus 14:55 and of the leprosye of cloth and house: Leviticus 14:56 and of rysynges, scabbes and glysterynge whyte, Leviticus 14:57 to teache when a thyng is vncleane or cleane. This is the law of leprosye.
