Chapter 15

1And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: 2Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: The man that hath an issue of seed, shall be unclean. 3And then shall he be judged subject to this evil, when a filthy humour, at every moment, cleaveth to his flesh, and gathereth there. 4Every bed on which he sleepeth, shall be unclean, and every place on which he sitteth. 5If ally man touch his bed, he shall wash his clothes: and being washed with water, he shall be unclean until the evening. 6If a man sit where that man hath sitten, he also shall wash his clothes: and being washed with water, shall be unclean until the evening. 7He that toucheth his flesh, shall wash his clothes: and being himself washed with water shall be unclean until the evening. 8If such a man cast his spittle upon him that is clean, he shall wash his clothes: and being washed with water, he shall be unclean until the evening. 9The saddle on which he hath sitten shall be unclean. 10And whatsoever has been under him that hath the issue of seed, shall be unclean until the evening. He that carrieth any of these things, shall wash his clothes: and being washed with water, he shall be unclean until the evening. 11Every person whom such a one shall touch, not having washed his hands before, shall wash his clothes: and being washed with water, shall be unclean until the evening. 12If he touch a vessel of earth, it shall be broken: but if a vessel of wood, if shall be washed with water. 13If he who suffereth this disease be healed, he shall number seven days after his cleansing, and having washed his clothes, and all his body in living water, he shall be clean. 14And on the eighth day he shall take two turtles, or two young pigeons, and he shall come before the Lord, to the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, and shall give them to the priest: 15Who shall offer one for sin, and the other for a holocaust: and he shall pray for him before the Lord, that he may be cleansed of the issue of his seed. 16The man from whom the seed of copulation goeth out, shall wash all his body with water: and he shall be unclean until the evening. 17The garment or skin that he weareth, he shall wash with water, and it shall be unclean until the evening. 18The woman, with whom he copulateth, shall be washed with water, and shall be unclean until the evening. 19The woman, who at the return of the month, hath her issue of blood, shall be separated seven days. 20Every one that toucheth her, shall be unclean until the evening. 2121And every thing that she sleepeth on, or that she sitteth on in the days of her separation, shall be defiled. 22He that toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes: and being himself washed with water, shall be unclean until the evening. 23Whosoever shall touch any vessel on which she sitteth, shall wash his clothes: and himself being washed with water, shall be defiled until the evening. 24If a man copulateth with her in the time of her flowers, he shall be unclean seven days: and every bed on which he shall sleep shall be defiled. 25The woman that hath an issue of blood many days out of her ordinary time, or that ceaseth not to flow after the monthly courses, as long as she is subject to this disease, shall be unclean, in the same manner as if she were in her flowers. 26Every bed on which she sleepeth, and every vessel on which she sitteth, shall be defiled. 27Whosoever toucheth them shall wash his clothes: and himself being washed with water, shall be unclean until the evening. 28If the blood stop and cease to run, she shall count seven days of her purification: 29And on the eighth day she shall offer for herself to the priest, two turtles, or two young pigeons, at the door of the tabernacle of the testimony: 30And he shall offer one for sin, and the other for a holocaust, and he shall pray for her before the Lord, and for the issue of her uncleanness. 31You shall teach therefore the children of Israel to take heed of uncleanness, that they may not die in their filth, when they shall have defiled my tabernacle that is among them. 32This is the law of him that hath the issue of seed, and that is defiled by copulation. 33And of the woman that is separated in her monthly times, or that hath a continual issue of blood, and of the man that sleepeth with her.
