Leviticus 15

1The Lord also said to Moses and Aaron, 2“Say to the people of Israel: When any person has a discharge from his body, then that person is unclean. 3It does not matter if the discharge flows freely from his body or if his body stops it from flowing. 4“If the person who has a discharge lies on any bed, that bed becomes unclean. Everything that person sits on becomes unclean. 5If any person touches that person’s bed, then he must wash his clothes and bathe in water. He will be unclean until evening. 6If any person sits on anything that the person with the discharge sat on, then he must wash his clothes and bathe in water. He will be unclean until evening. 7Also, if any person touches the person who has the discharge, then he must wash his clothes and bathe in water. He will be unclean until evening. 8“If the person with a discharge spits on a clean person, then the clean person must wash his clothes and bathe in water. This person will be unclean until evening. 9Any saddle the person with the discharge sits on will become unclean. 10So any person who touches any of the things that were under the person with the discharge will be unclean until evening. The person who carries these things ˻that were under the person with the discharge˼ must wash his clothes and bathe in water. He will be unclean until evening. 11“It may happen that the person with a discharge has not washed his hands in water and touches another person. Then that other person must wash his clothes and bathe in water. He will be unclean until evening. 12“But if the person with a discharge touches a clay bowl, then that bowl must be broken. If the person with the discharge touches a wooden bowl, then that bowl must be washed in water. 13“When the person with a discharge is ready to be made clean, he must wait seven days before he will be made clean. Then he must wash his clothes and bathe his body in running water. Then he will become clean. 14On the eighth day, that person must take for himself two doves or two young pigeons. He must come before the Lord at the entrance of the Meeting Tent. That person will give the two birds to the priest. 15The priest will offer the birds, one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering. In this way, the priest will make that person pure before the Lord. 16“If a man has a flow of semen, he must bathe his whole body in water. He will be unclean until evening. 17If the semen is on any clothing or leather, then that clothing or leather must be washed with water. It will be unclean until evening. 18If a man sleeps with a woman and has a flow of semen, then both the man and the woman must bathe in water. They will be unclean until evening. 19“If a woman has a discharge from her monthly time of bleeding, she will be unclean for seven days. If any person touches her, that person will be unclean until evening. 20Also, everything the woman lies on during her monthly time of bleeding will be unclean. And everything she sits on during that time will be unclean. 21If any person touches the woman’s bed, that person must wash his clothes and bathe in water. He will be unclean until evening. 22If any person touches anything the woman has sat on, that person must wash his clothes and bathe in water. He will be unclean until evening. 23It does not matter if the person touched the woman’s bed or if he touched something she sat on, that person will be unclean until evening. 24“And if a man has sexual relations with a woman during her monthly time of bleeding, then the man will be unclean seven days. Every bed that man lies on will be unclean. 25“If a woman has a discharge of blood many days, not during her time of her monthly bleeding, or if she has a discharge after that time, then she will be unclean, like the time of monthly bleeding. She will be unclean for as long as she has a discharge. 26Any bed the woman lies on during all the time of her discharge will be like her bed during her time of monthly bleeding. Everything the woman sits on will be unclean, like during the time she is unclean from her monthly time of bleeding. 27If any person touches those things, that person will be unclean. That person must wash his clothes and bathe in water. He will be unclean until evening. 28After the woman’s discharge stops, she must wait seven days. After that, she will be clean. 29Then on the eighth day, the woman must take two doves or two young pigeons. She must bring them to the priest at the entrance of the Meeting Tent. 30Then the priest must offer one bird for a sin offering and the other bird for a burnt offering. In this way, the priest will make her pure before the Lord. 31“So you must warn the people of Israel about being unclean. ˻If you don’t warn the people, then˼ they might make my Holy Tent unclean. And then they would have to die!” 32Those are the rules for people with a discharge. Those rules are for men who become unclean from a flow of semen. 33And those rules are for women who become unclean from their monthly time of bleeding. And those are the rules for any person that becomes unclean by sleeping with another person who is unclean.
