  1. And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Lev 12:2 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, Whatsoever woman shall have conceived and born a male child shall be unclean seven days, she shall be unclean according to the days of separation for her monthly courses. Lev 12:3 And on the eighth day she shall circumcise the flesh of his foreskin. Lev 12:4 And for thirty-three days she shall continue in her unclean blood; she shall touch nothing holy, and shall not enter the sanctuary, until the days of her purification be fulfilled. Lev 12:5 But if she should have born a female child, then she shall be unclean twice seven days, according to the time of her monthly courses; and for sixty-six days shall she remain in her unclean blood. Lev 12:6 And when the days of her purification shall have been fulfilled for a son or a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of a year old without blemish for a whole-burnt-offering, and a young pigeon or turtle-dove for a sin-offering to the door of the tabernacle of witness, to the priest. Lev 12:7 And he shall present it before the Lord, and the priest shall make atonement for her, and. shall purge her from the fountain of her blood; this is the law of her who bears a male or a female. 12:8 And if she cannot afford a lamb, then shall she take two turtledoves or two young pigeons, one for a whole-burnt-offering, and one for a sin-offering; and the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be purified.
