29 “Now if a man or woman has an infection on the head or on the beard,

30 then the priest shall look at the infection, and if it appears to be deeper than the skin and there is thin yellowish hair in it, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is a scale, it is leprosy of the head or of the beard.

31 “But if the priest looks at the infection of the scale, and indeed, it appears to be no deeper than the skin and there is no black hair in it, then the priest shall 1isolate the person with the scaly infection for seven days.

32 “On the seventh day the priest shall look at the infection, and if the scale has not spread and no yellowish hair has 1grown in it, and the appearance of the scale is no deeper than the skin,

33 then he shall shave himself, but he shall not shave the scale; and the priest shall 1isolate the person with the scale seven more days.

34 “Then on the seventh day the priest shall look at the scale, and if the scale has not spread in the skin and it appears to be no deeper than the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean; and he shall wash his clothes and be clean.

35 “But if the scale spreads farther in the skin after his cleansing,

36 then the priest shall look at him, and if the scale has spread in the skin, the priest need not seek for the yellowish hair; he is unclean.

37 “If in his sight the scale has remained, however, and black hair has grown in it, the scale has healed, he is clean; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

38 “When a man or a woman has bright spots on the skin of the 1body, even white bright spots,

39 then the priest shall look, and if the bright spots on the skin of their 1bodies are a faint white, it is 2eczema that has broken out on the skin; he is clean.

40 “Now if a 1man loses the hair of his head, he is abald; he is clean.

41 “If his head becomes bald at the 1front and sides, he is bald on the forehead; he is clean.

42 “But if on the bald head or the bald forehead, there occurs a reddish-white infection, it is leprosy breaking out on his bald head or on his bald forehead.

43 “Then athe priest shall look at him; and if the swelling of the infection is reddish-white on his bald head or on his bald forehead, like the appearance of leprosy in the skin of the 1body,

44 he is a leprous man, he is unclean. The priest shall surely pronounce him unclean; his infection is on his head.

45 “As for the leper who has the infection, his clothes shall be torn, and athe hair of his head shall be 1uncovered, and he shall bcover his mustache and cry, ‘cUnclean! Unclean!’

46 “He shall remain unclean all the days during which he has the infection; he is unclean. He shall live alone; his dwelling shall be aoutside the camp.

47 “When a garment has a 1mark of leprosy in it, whether it is a wool garment or a linen garment,

48 whether in 1warp or woof, of linen or of wool, whether in leather or in any article made of leather,

49 if the mark is greenish or reddish in the garment or in the leather, or in the 1warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather, it is a leprous mark and shall be shown to the priest.

50 “Then athe priest shall look at the mark and shall 1quarantine the article with the mark for seven days.

51 “He shall then look at the mark on the seventh day; if the mark has spread in the garment, whether in the warp or in the woof, or in the leather, whatever the purpose for which the leather is used, the mark is a 1leprous malignancy, it is unclean.

52 “So he shall burn the garment, whether the warp or the woof, in wool or in linen, or any article of leather in which the mark occurs, for it is a 1leprous malignancy; it shall be burned in the fire.

53 “But if the priest shall look, and indeed the mark has not spread in the garment, either in the warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather,

54 then the priest shall order them to wash the thing in which the mark occurs and he shall 1quarantine it for seven more days.

55 “After the article with the mark has been washed, the priest shall again look, and if the mark has not changed its appearance, even though the mark has not spread, it is unclean; you shall burn it in the fire, whether an eating away has produced bareness on the top or on the front of it.

56 “Then if the priest looks, and if the mark has faded after it has been washed, then he shall tear it out of the garment or out of the leather, whether from the warp or from the woof;

57 and if it appears again in the garment, whether in the warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather, it is an outbreak; the article with the mark shall be burned in the fire.

58 “The garment, whether the warp or the woof, or any article of leather from which the mark has departed when you washed it, it shall then be washed a second time and will be clean.”

59 This is the law for the mark of leprosy in a garment of wool or linen, whether in the warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather, for pronouncing it clean or unclean.
