THE HOLY BIBLE Darby

Leviticus (Author Moses)

11:1And Jehovah spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying to them,

11:2Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the animals which ye shall eat of all the beasts which are on the earth.

11:3Whatever hath cloven hoofs, and feet quite split open, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts -- that shall ye eat.

11:4Only these shall ye not eat of those that chew the cud, or of those with cloven hoofs: the camel, for it cheweth the cud, but hath not cloven hoofs -- it shall be unclean unto you;

11:5and the rock-badger, for it cheweth the cud, but hath not cloven hoofs -- it shall be unclean unto you;

11:6and the hare, for it cheweth the cud, but hath not cloven hoofs -- it shall be unclean unto you;

11:7and the swine, for it hath cloven hoofs, and feet quite split open, but it cheweth not the cud -- it shall be unclean unto you.

11:8Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch: they shall be unclean unto you.

11:9These shall ye eat of all that are in the waters: whatever hath fins and scales in waters, in seas and in rivers, these shall ye eat;

11:10but all that have not fins and scales in seas and in rivers, of all that swarm in the waters, and of every living soul which is in the waters -- they shall be an abomination unto you.

11:11They shall be even an abomination unto you: of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase ye shall have in abomination.

11:12Whatever in the waters hath no fins and scales, that shall be an abomination unto you.

11:13And these shall ye have in abomination of the fowls; they shall not be eaten; an abomination shall they be: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the sea-eagle,

11:14and the falcon, and the kite, after its kind;

11:15every raven after its kind;

11:16and the female ostrich and the male ostrich, and the sea-gull, and the hawk, after its kind;

11:17and the owl, and the gannet, and the ibis,

11:18and the swan, and the pelican, and the carrion vulture,

11:19and the stork; the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat.

11:20Every winged crawling thing that goeth upon all four shall be an abomination unto you.

11:21Yet these shall ye eat of every winged crawling thing that goeth upon all four: those which have legs above their feet with which to leap upon the earth.

11:22These shall ye eat of them: the arbeh after its kind, and the solam after its kind, and the hargol after its kind, and the hargab after its kind.

11:23But every winged crawling thing that hath four feet shall be an abomination unto you.

11:24And by these ye shall make yourselves unclean; whoever toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.

11:25And whoever carrieth ought of their carcase shall wash his garments, and be unclean until the even.

11:26Every beast that hath cloven hoofs, but not feet quite split open, nor cheweth the cud, shall be unclean unto you: every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.

11:27And whatever goeth on its paws, among all manner of beasts that go upon all four, those are unclean unto you: whoever toucheth their carcase shall be unclean until the even.

11:28And he that carrieth their carcase shall wash his garments, and be unclean until the even: they shall be unclean unto you.

11:29And these shall be unclean unto you among the crawling things which crawl on the earth: the mole, and the field-mouse, and the lizard, after its kind;

11:30and the groaning lizard, and the great red lizard, and the climbing lizard, and the chomet, and the chameleon.

11:31These shall be unclean unto you among all that crawl: whoever toucheth them when they are dead, shall be unclean until the even.

11:32And on whatever any of them when they are dead doth fall, it shall be unclean; all vessels of wood, or garment, or skin, or sack, every vessel wherewith work is done -- it shall be put into water, and be unclean until the even; then shall it be clean.

11:33And every earthen vessel into which any of them falleth -- whatever is in it shall be unclean; and ye shall break it.

11:34All food that is eaten on which such water hath come shall be unclean; and all drink that is drunk shall be unclean, in every such vessel.

11:35And everything where upon any part of their carcase falleth shall be unclean; oven and hearth shall be broken down: they are unclean, and shall be unclean unto you.

11:36Nevertheless, a spring or a well, a quantity of water, shall be clean. But he that toucheth their carcase shall be unclean.

11:37And if any part of their carcase fall upon any sowing-seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean;

11:38but if water have been put on the seed, and any part of their carcase fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.

11:39And if any beast which is to you for food die, he that toucheth the carcase thereof shall be unclean until the even.

11:40And he that eateth of its carcase shall wash his garments, and be unclean until the even: he also that carrieth its carcase shall wash his garments, and be unclean until the even.

11:41And every crawling thing which crawleth on the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.

11:42Whatever goeth on the belly, and whatever goeth on all four, and all that have a great many feet, of every manner of crawling thing which crawleth on the earth -- these ye shall not eat; for they are an abomination.

11:43Ye shall not make yourselves abominable through any crawling thing which crawleth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.

11:44For I am Jehovah your God; and ye shall hallow yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy; and ye shall not make yourselves unclean through any manner of crawling thing which creepeth on the earth.

11:45For I am Jehovah who brought you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

11:46This is the law of cattle, and of fowl, and of every living soul that moveth in the waters, and of every soul that crawleth on the earth;

11:47to make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that is to be eaten and the beast that is not to be eaten.

12:1And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

12:2Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman conceive seed, and bear a male, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of the separation of her infirmity shall she be unclean.

12:3And on the eighth day shall the flesh of his foreskin be circumcised.

12:4And she shall continue thirty-three days in the blood of her cleansing; no holy thing shall she touch, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her cleansing are fulfilled.

12:5And if she bear a female, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her separation; and she shall continue sixty-six days in the blood of her cleansing.

12:6And when the days of her cleansing are fulfilled, for a son or for a daughter, she shall bring a yearling lamb for a burnt-offering, and a young pigeon or a turtle-dove for a sin-offering, to the entrance of the tent of meeting, unto the priest.

12:7And he shall present it before Jehovah, and make atonement for her; and she shall be clean from the flux of her blood. This is the law for her that hath borne a male or a female.

12:8And if her hand cannot find what is sufficient for a sheep, she shall bring two turtle-doves or two young pigeons; one for a burnt-offering, and the other for a sin-offering; and the priest shall make atonement for her; and she shall be clean.

13:1And Jehovah spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,

13:2When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising or a scab, or bright spot, and it become in the skin of his flesh a sore as of leprosy, then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests.

13:3And when the priest looketh on the sore in the skin of the flesh, and the hair in the sore is turned white, and the sore looketh deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is the sore of leprosy; and the priest shall look on him and pronounce him unclean.

13:4But if the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and look not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white, the priest shall shut up him that hath the sore seven days.

13:5And the priest shall look on him the seventh day; and behold, in his sight, the sore remaineth as it was, the sore hath not spread in the skin, then the priest shall shut him up seven days a second time.

13:6And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day, and behold, the sore is become pale and the sore hath not spread in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean; it is a scab; and he shall wash his garments and be clean.

13:7But if the scab have spread much in the skin, after that he hath been seen by the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen by the priest again;

13:8and the priest shall look on him, and behold, the scab hath spread in the skin; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is leprosy.

13:9When a sore as of leprosy is in a man, he shall be brought unto the priest;

13:10and the priest shall look on him, and behold, there is a white rising in the skin, and it hath turned the hair white, and a trace of raw flesh is in the rising:

13:11it is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh; and the priest shall pronounce him unclean, and he shall not shut him up, for he is unclean.

13:12But if the leprosy break out much in the skin, and the leprosy cover all the skin of him that hath the sore, from his head even to his foot, wherever the eyes of the priest look,

13:13and the priest looketh, and behold, the leprosy covereth all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the sore; it is all turned white; he is clean.

13:14And on the day when raw flesh appeareth in him, he shall be unclean.

13:15And the priest shall look on the raw flesh, and shall pronounce him unclean: the raw flesh is unclean, it is leprosy.

13:16But if the raw flesh change again, and be turned white, he shall come unto the priest;

13:17and the priest shall look on him, and behold, the sore is turned white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that hath the sore: he is clean.

13:18And the flesh -- when in the skin thereof cometh a boil, and it is healed,

13:19and there is in the place of the boil a white rising, or a white-reddish bright spot, it shall be shewn to the priest;

13:20and the priest shall look on it, and behold, it looketh deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof is turned white; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the sore of leprosy broken out in the boil.

13:21But if the priest look on it, and behold, there are no white hairs therein, and it is not deeper than the skin, and is pale, the priest shall shut him up seven days;

13:22and if it spread much in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the sore.

13:23But if the bright spot have remained in its place, and have not spread, it is the scar of the boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

13:24Or if in the flesh, in the skin thereof, there is a burning inflammation, and the place of the inflammation become a bright spot white-reddish or white,

13:25and the priest look on it, and behold, the hair is turned white in the bright spot, and it looketh deeper than the skin, it is a leprosy which is broken out in the inflammation; and the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the sore of leprosy.

13:26But if the priest look on it, and behold, there is no white hair in the bright spot, and it is no deeper than the skin, and is pale, the priest shall shut him up seven days.

13:27And the priest shall look on him the seventh day, and if it have spread much in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the sore of leprosy.

13:28But if the bright spot have remained in its place, and not spread in the skin, and is pale, it is the rising of the inflammation; and the priest shall pronounce him clean; for it is the scar of the inflammation.

13:29And if a man or a woman have a sore on the head or on the beard,

13:30and the priest look on the sore, and behold, it looketh deeper than the skin, and there is in it yellow thin hair, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is a scall, the leprosy of the head or the beard.

13:31And if the priest look on the sore of the scall, and behold, it is not in sight deeper than the skin, and there is no black hair in it, the priest shall shut up him that hath the sore of the scall seven days.

13:32And when the priest looketh on the sore on the seventh day, and behold, the scall hath not spread, and there is in it no yellow hair, and the scall doth not look deeper than the skin,

13:33he that hath the sore shall shave himself; but the scall shall he not shave; and the priest shall shut up him that hath the scall seven days a second time.

13:34And the priest shall look on the scall on the seventh day, and behold, the scall hath not spread in the skin, nor is in sight deeper than the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean; and he shall wash his garments, and be clean.

13:35But if the scall have spread much in the skin after his cleansing,

13:36and the priest shall look on him, and behold, the scall hath spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for yellow hair: he is unclean.

13:37But if the scall have in his sight remained as it was, and there is black hair grown up therein, the scall is healed: he is clean; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

13:38And if a man or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright spots, white bright spots,

13:39and the priest look, and behold, there are in the skin of their flesh pale white spots, it is an eruption which is broken out in the skin: he is clean.

13:40And if a man's hair have fallen off his head, he is bald: he is clean;

13:41and if he have the hair fallen off from the part of the head towards his face, he is forehead-bald: he is clean.

13:42And if there be in the bald head, or bald forehead, a white-reddish sore, it is a leprosy which hath broken out in his bald head, or his bald forehead.

13:43And the priest shall look on it, and behold, the rising of the sore is white-reddish in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, like the appearance of the leprosy in the skin of the flesh;

13:44he is a leprous man, he is unclean; the priest shall pronounce him utterly unclean; his sore is in his head.

13:45And as to the leper in whom the sore is, -- his garments shall be rent, and his head shall be uncovered, and he shall put a covering on his beard, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean!

13:46All the days that the sore shall be in him he shall be unclean: he is unclean; he shall dwell apart; outside the camp shall his dwelling be.

13:47And if a sore of leprosy is in a garment, in a woollen garment, or a linen garment,

13:48either in the warp or in the woof of linen or of wool, or in a skin, or in anything made of skin,

13:49and the sore is greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin, it is the sore of leprosy, and shall be shewn unto the priest.

13:50And the priest shall look on the sore, and shall shut up that which hath the sore seven days.

13:51And he shall see the sore on the seventh day: if the sore have spread in the garment, either in the warp or in the woof, or in a skin, in any work that may be made of skin, the sore is a corroding leprosy: it is unclean.

13:52And they shall burn the garment, or the warp or the woof, of wool or of linen, or anything of skin, wherein the sore is; for it is a corroding leprosy: it shall be burned with fire.

13:53But if the priest look, and behold, the sore hath not spread in the garment, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin,

13:54then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein the sore is, and he shall shut it up seven days a second time.

13:55And the priest shall look on the sore after the washing, and behold, if the sore have not changed its appearance, and the sore have not spread, it is unclean: thou shalt burn it with fire: it is a fretting sore on what is threadbare or where the nap is gone.

13:56But if the priest look, and behold, the sore hath become pale after the washing of it, then he shall rend it from the garment, or from the skin, or from the warp, or from the woof.

13:57And if it appear still in the garment, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin, it is a leprosy breaking out: thou shalt burn with fire that wherein the sore is.

13:58But the garment, or the warp, or the woof, or whatever thing of skin which thou hast washed, and the sore departeth from them, it shall be washed a second time, and it is clean.

13:59This is the law of the sore of leprosy in a garment of wool or linen, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in anything of skin, to cleanse it, or to pronounce it unclean.
