1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
2 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying:
‘When a woman 1gives birth and bears a male child, then she shall be unclean for seven days, aas in the days of 2her menstruation she shall be unclean.
3 ‘On athe eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.
4 ‘Then she shall remain in the blood of her purification for thirty-three days; she shall not touch any consecrated thing, nor enter the sanctuary until the days of her purification are completed.
5 ‘But if she bears a female child, then she shall be unclean for two weeks, as in her 1menstruation; and she shall remain in the blood of her purification for sixty-six days.
6 ‘aWhen the days of her purification are completed, for a son or for a daughter, she shall bring to the priest at the doorway of the tent of meeting a one year old lamb for a burnt offering and a young pigeon or a turtledove bfor a sin offering.
7 ‘Then he shall offer it before the Lord and make atonement for her, and she shall be cleansed from the 1flow of her blood. This is the law for her who bears a child, whether a male or a female.
8 ‘But if 1she cannot afford a lamb, then she shall take atwo turtledoves or two young pigeons, bthe one for a burnt offering and the other for a sin offering; and the cpriest shall make atonement for her, and she will be clean.’ ”
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
