Leviticus 12

1The Lord said to Moses, 2“Tell the people of Israel: If a woman gives birth to a baby boy, then that woman will be unclean for seven days. This will be like her being unclean during her monthly time of bleeding. 3On the eighth day, the baby boy must be circumcised. 4Then it will be 33 days before she becomes clean from her loss of blood. She must not touch anything that is holy. She must not enter the Holy Place until the time of her being made clean is finished. 5But if the woman gives birth to a girl, then the mother will be unclean for two weeks, the same as for her monthly time of bleeding. It will be 66 days before she becomes clean from her loss of blood. 6“After the time for being made clean is finished, the new mother of a baby girl or boy must bring special sacrifices to the Meeting Tent. She must give those sacrifices to the priest at the entrance of the Meeting Tent. She must bring a one-year-old lamb for a burnt offering and a dove or young pigeon for a sin offering. 7- 8If the woman can’t afford a lamb, she may bring two doves or two young pigeons. One bird will be for a burnt offering and one for a sin offering. The priest will offer those things before the Lord. In this way, the priest will make her pure. Then she will be clean from her loss of blood. Those are the rules for a woman who gives birth to a baby boy or a baby girl.”
