Purity Regulations for Male Bodily Discharges

15:13 “ ‘When the man with the discharge becomes clean from his discharge he is to count off for himself seven days for his purification, and he must wash his clothes, bathe in fresh water,18 and be clean. 15:14 Then on the eighth day he is to take for himself two turtledoves or two young pigeons,19 and he is to present himself20 before the Lord at the entrance of the Meeting Tent and give them to the priest, 15:15 and the priest is to make one of them a sin offering21 and the other a burnt offering.22 So the priest23 is to make atonement for him before the Lord for24 his discharge.

15:16 “ ‘When a man has a seminal emission,25 he must bathe his whole body in water26 and be unclean until evening, 15:17 and he must wash in water any clothing or leather that has semen on it, and it will be unclean until evening. 15:18 When a man has sexual intercourse with a woman and there is a seminal emission,27 they must bathe in water and be unclean until evening.
