Chapter 8 – א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 1
And The Eternal One spoke unto Moses, saying:

ב קַח אֶת-אַהֲרֹן, וְאֶת-בָּנָיו אִתּוֹ, וְאֵת הַבְּגָדִים, וְאֵת שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה; וְאֵת פַּר הַחַטָּאת, וְאֵת שְׁנֵי הָאֵילִים, וְאֵת, סַל הַמַּצּוֹת. 2
‘Take Aaron and his sons with him, and the garments, and the anointing oil, and the bullock of the sin-offering, and the two rams, and the basket of unleavened bread;

ג וְאֵת כָּל-הָעֵדָה, הַקְהֵל, אֶל-פֶּתַח, אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. 3
and assemble thou all the community at the door of the tent of meeting.’

ד וַיַּעַשׂ מֹשֶׁה, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה אֹתוֹ; וַתִּקָּהֵל, הָעֵדָה, אֶל-פֶּתַח, אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. 4
And Moses did as The Eternal One commanded him;
and the community was assembled at the door of the tent of meeting.

ה וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, אֶל-הָעֵדָה: זֶה הַדָּבָר, אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה לַעֲשׂוֹת. 5
And Moses said unto the community:
‘This is the thing which The Eternal One hath commanded to be done.’

ו וַיַּקְרֵב מֹשֶׁה, אֶת-אַהֲרֹן וְאֶת-בָּנָיו; וַיִּרְחַץ אֹתָם, בַּמָּיִם. 6
And Moses brought Aaron and his sons, and washed them with water.

ז וַיִּתֵּן עָלָיו אֶת-הַכֻּתֹּנֶת, וַיַּחְגֹּר אֹתוֹ בָּאַבְנֵט, וַיַּלְבֵּשׁ אֹתוֹ אֶת-הַמְּעִיל, וַיִּתֵּן עָלָיו אֶת-הָאֵפֹד; וַיַּחְגֹּר אֹתוֹ, בְּחֵשֶׁב הָאֵפֹד, וַיֶּאְפֹּד לוֹ, בּוֹ. 7
And he put upon him the tunic, and girded him with the girdle, and clothed him with the robe, and put the ephod upon him, and he girded him with the skilfully woven band of the ephod, and bound it unto him therewith.

ח וַיָּשֶׂם עָלָיו, אֶת-הַחֹשֶׁן; וַיִּתֵּן, אֶל-הַחֹשֶׁן, אֶת-הָאוּרִים, וְאֶת-הַתֻּמִּים. 8
And he placed the breastplate upon him;
and in the breastplate he put the Urim and the Thummim.

ט וַיָּשֶׂם אֶת-הַמִּצְנֶפֶת, עַל-רֹאשׁוֹ; וַיָּשֶׂם עַל-הַמִּצְנֶפֶת אֶל-מוּל פָּנָיו, אֵת צִיץ הַזָּהָב נֵזֶר הַקֹּדֶשׁ, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. 9
And he set the mitre upon his head;
and upon the mitre, in front, did he set the golden plate, the holy crown;
as The Eternal One commanded Moses.

י וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה אֶת-שֶׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, וַיִּמְשַׁח אֶת-הַמִּשְׁכָּן וְאֶת-כָּל-אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ; וַיְקַדֵּשׁ, אֹתָם. 10
And Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was therein, and sanctified them.

יא וַיַּז מִמֶּנּוּ עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, שֶׁבַע פְּעָמִים; וַיִּמְשַׁח אֶת-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ וְאֶת-כָּל-כֵּלָיו, וְאֶת-הַכִּיֹּר וְאֶת-כַּנּוֹ–לְקַדְּשָׁם. 11
And he sprinkled thereof upon the altar seven times, and anointed the altar and all its vessels, and the laver and its base, to sanctify them.

יב וַיִּצֹק מִשֶּׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, עַל רֹאשׁ אַהֲרֹן; וַיִּמְשַׁח אֹתוֹ, לְקַדְּשׁוֹ. 12
And he poured of the anointing oil upon Aaron’s head, and anointed him, to sanctify him.

יג וַיַּקְרֵב מֹשֶׁה אֶת-בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן, וַיַּלְבִּשֵׁם כֻּתֳּנֹת וַיַּחְגֹּר אֹתָם אַבְנֵט, וַיַּחֲבֹשׁ לָהֶם, מִגְבָּעוֹת–כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. 13 And Moses brought Aaron’s sons, and clothed them with tunics, and girded them with girdles, and bound head-tires upon them;
as The Eternal One commanded Moses.

יד וַיַּגֵּשׁ, אֵת פַּר הַחַטָּאת; וַיִּסְמֹךְ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם, עַל-רֹאשׁ פַּר הַחַטָּאת. 14
And the bullock of the sin-offering was brought;
and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the bullock of the sin-offering.

טו וַיִּשְׁחָט, וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַדָּם וַיִּתֵּן עַל-קַרְנוֹת הַמִּזְבֵּחַ סָבִיב בְּאֶצְבָּעוֹ, וַיְחַטֵּא, אֶת-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וְאֶת-הַדָּם, יָצַק אֶל-יְסוֹד הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וַיְקַדְּשֵׁהוּ, לְכַפֵּר עָלָיו. 15
And when it was slain, Moses took the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about with his finger, and purified the altar, and poured out the remaining blood at the base of the altar, and sanctified it, to make atonement for it.

טז וַיִּקַּח, אֶת-כָּל-הַחֵלֶב אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַקֶּרֶב, וְאֵת יֹתֶרֶת הַכָּבֵד, וְאֶת-שְׁתֵּי הַכְּלָיֹת וְאֶת-חֶלְבְּהֶן; וַיַּקְטֵר מֹשֶׁה, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה. 16 And he took all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and Moses made it smoke upon the altar.

יז וְאֶת-הַפָּר וְאֶת-עֹרוֹ, וְאֶת-בְּשָׂרוֹ וְאֶת-פִּרְשׁוֹ–שָׂרַף בָּאֵשׁ, מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה: כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. 17
And the bullock, and its skin, and its flesh, and its dung, were burnt with fire without the camp;
as The Eternal One commanded Moses.

יח וַיַּקְרֵב, אֵת אֵיל הָעֹלָה; וַיִּסְמְכוּ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם–עַל-רֹאשׁ הָאָיִל. 18
And the ram of the burnt-offering was presented;
and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

יט וַיִּשְׁחָט; וַיִּזְרֹק מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַדָּם עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, סָבִיב. 19
And when it was killed, Moses dashed the blood against the altar round about.

כ וְאֶת-הָאַיִל–נִתַּח, לִנְתָחָיו; וַיַּקְטֵר מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הָרֹאשׁ, וְאֶת-הַנְּתָחִים וְאֶת-הַפָּדֶר. 20
And when the ram was cut into its pieces, Moses made the head, and the pieces, and the suet smoke.

כא וְאֶת-הַקֶּרֶב וְאֶת-הַכְּרָעַיִם, רָחַץ בַּמָּיִם; וַיַּקְטֵר מֹשֶׁה אֶת-כָּל-הָאַיִל הַמִּזְבֵּחָה, עֹלָה הוּא לְרֵיחַ-נִיחֹחַ אִשֶּׁה הוּא לַיהוָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. 21
And when the inwards and the legs were washed with water, Moses made the whole ram smoke upon the altar;
it was a burnt-offering for a sweet savour;
it was an offering made by fire unto The Eternal One;
as The Eternal One commanded Moses.

כב וַיַּקְרֵב אֶת-הָאַיִל הַשֵּׁנִי, אֵיל הַמִּלֻּאִים; וַיִּסְמְכוּ אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו, אֶת-יְדֵיהֶם–עַל-רֹאשׁ הָאָיִל. 22
And the other ram was presented, the ram of consecration, and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

כג וַיִּשְׁחָט–וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה מִדָּמוֹ, וַיִּתֵּן עַל-תְּנוּךְ אֹזֶן-אַהֲרֹן הַיְמָנִית; וְעַל-בֹּהֶן יָדוֹ הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן רַגְלוֹ הַיְמָנִית. 23
And when it was slain, Moses took of the blood thereof, and put it upon the tip of Aaron’s right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.

כד וַיַּקְרֵב אֶת-בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן, וַיִּתֵּן מֹשֶׁה מִן-הַדָּם עַל-תְּנוּךְ אָזְנָם הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן יָדָם הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן רַגְלָם הַיְמָנִית; וַיִּזְרֹק מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הַדָּם עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, סָבִיב. 24
And Aaron’s sons were brought, and Moses put of the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot;
and Moses dashed the blood against the altar round about.

כה וַיִּקַּח אֶת-הַחֵלֶב וְאֶת-הָאַלְיָה, וְאֶת-כָּל-הַחֵלֶב אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַקֶּרֶב, וְאֵת יֹתֶרֶת הַכָּבֵד, וְאֶת-שְׁתֵּי הַכְּלָיֹת וְאֶת-חֶלְבְּהֶן; וְאֵת, שׁוֹק הַיָּמִין. 25
And he took the fat, and the fat tail, and all the fat that was upon the inwards, and the lobe of the liver, and the two kidneys, and their fat, and the right thigh.

כו וּמִסַּל הַמַּצּוֹת אֲשֶׁר לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, לָקַח חַלַּת מַצָּה אַחַת וְחַלַּת לֶחֶם שֶׁמֶן אַחַת–וְרָקִיק אֶחָד; וַיָּשֶׂם, עַל-הַחֲלָבִים, וְעַל, שׁוֹק הַיָּמִין. 26
And out of the basket of unleavened bread, that was before The Eternal One, he took one unleavened cake, and one cake of oiled bread, and one wafer, and placed them on the fat, and upon the right thigh.

כז וַיִּתֵּן אֶת-הַכֹּל–עַל כַּפֵּי אַהֲרֹן, וְעַל כַּפֵּי בָנָיו; וַיָּנֶף אֹתָם תְּנוּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 27
And he put the whole upon the hands of Aaron, and upon the hands of his sons, and waved them for a wave-offering before The Eternal One.

כח וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה אֹתָם מֵעַל כַּפֵּיהֶם, וַיַּקְטֵר הַמִּזְבֵּחָה עַל-הָעֹלָה; מִלֻּאִים הֵם לְרֵיחַ נִיחֹחַ, אִשֶּׁה הוּא לַיהוָה. 28
And Moses took them from off their hands, and made them smoke on the altar upon the burnt-offering;
they were a consecration-offering for a sweet savour;
it was an offering made by fire unto The Eternal One.

כט וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה אֶת-הֶחָזֶה, וַיְנִיפֵהוּ תְנוּפָה לִפְנֵי יְהוָה: מֵאֵיל הַמִּלֻּאִים, לְמֹשֶׁה הָיָה לְמָנָה, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. 29
And Moses took the breast, and waved it for a wave-offering before The Eternal One;
it was Moses’ portion of the ram of consecration;
as The Eternal One commanded Moses.

ל וַיִּקַּח מֹשֶׁה מִשֶּׁמֶן הַמִּשְׁחָה, וּמִן-הַדָּם אֲשֶׁר עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, וַיַּז עַל-אַהֲרֹן עַל-בְּגָדָיו, וְעַל-בָּנָיו וְעַל-בִּגְדֵי בָנָיו אִתּוֹ; וַיְקַדֵּשׁ אֶת-אַהֲרֹן אֶת-בְּגָדָיו, וְאֶת-בָּנָיו וְאֶת-בִּגְדֵי בָנָיו אִתּוֹ. 30
And Moses took of the anointing oil, and of the blood which was upon the altar, and sprinkled it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon his sons’ garments with him, and sanctified Aaron, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons’ garments with him.

לא וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-אַהֲרֹן וְאֶל-בָּנָיו, בַּשְּׁלוּ אֶת-הַבָּשָׂר פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וְשָׁם תֹּאכְלוּ אֹתוֹ, וְאֶת-הַלֶּחֶם אֲשֶׁר בְּסַל הַמִּלֻּאִים: כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוֵּיתִי לֵאמֹר, אַהֲרֹן וּבָנָיו יֹאכְלֻהוּ. 31
And Moses said unto Aaron and to his sons:
‘Boil the flesh at the door of the tent of meeting;
and there eat it and the bread that is in the basket of consecration, as I commanded, saying:
Aaron and his sons shall eat it.

לב וְהַנּוֹתָר בַּבָּשָׂר, וּבַלָּחֶם–בָּאֵשׁ, תִּשְׂרֹפוּ. 32
And that which remaineth of the flesh and of the bread shall ye burn with fire.

לג וּמִפֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד לֹא תֵצְאוּ, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים–עַד יוֹם מְלֹאת, יְמֵי מִלֻּאֵיכֶם: כִּי שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, יְמַלֵּא אֶת-יֶדְכֶם. 33
And ye shall not go out from the door of the tent of meeting seven days, until the days of your consecration be fulfilled;
for He shall consecrate you seven days.

לד כַּאֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה, בַּיּוֹם הַזֶּה–צִוָּה יְהוָה לַעֲשֹׂת, לְכַפֵּר עֲלֵיכֶם. 34
As hath been done this day, so The Eternal One hath commanded to do, to make atonement for you.

לה וּפֶתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד תֵּשְׁבוּ יוֹמָם וָלַיְלָה, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, וּשְׁמַרְתֶּם אֶת-מִשְׁמֶרֶת יְהוָה, וְלֹא תָמוּתוּ: כִּי-כֵן, צֻוֵּיתִי. 35
And at the door of the tent of meeting shall ye abide day and night seven days, and keep the charge of The Eternal One, that ye die not;
for so I am commanded.

לו וַיַּעַשׂ אַהֲרֹן, וּבָנָיו–אֵת, כָּל-הַדְּבָרִים, אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה, בְּיַד-מֹשֶׁה. {ס} 36
And Aaron and his sons did all the things which The Eternal One commanded by the hand of Moses. {S}

Chapter 9 – א וַיְהִי, בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁמִינִי, קָרָא מֹשֶׁה, לְאַהֲרֹן וּלְבָנָיו–וּלְזִקְנֵי, יִשְׂרָאֵל. 1
And it came to pass on the eighth day, that Moses called Aaron and his sons, and the elders of Israel;

ב וַיֹּאמֶר אֶל-אַהֲרֹן, קַח-לְךָ עֵגֶל בֶּן-בָּקָר לְחַטָּאת וְאַיִל לְעֹלָה–תְּמִימִם; וְהַקְרֵב, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 2
and he said unto Aaron:
‘Take thee a bull-calf for a sin-offering, and a ram for a burnt-offering, without blemish, and offer them before The Eternal One.

ג וְאֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, תְּדַבֵּר לֵאמֹר: קְחוּ שְׂעִיר-עִזִּים לְחַטָּאת, וְעֵגֶל וָכֶבֶשׂ בְּנֵי-שָׁנָה תְּמִימִם לְעֹלָה. 3
And unto the sons of Israel thou shalt speak, saying:
Take ye a he-goat for a sin-offering;
and a calf and a lamb, both of the first year, without blemish, for a burnt-offering;

ד וְשׁוֹר וָאַיִל לִשְׁלָמִים, לִזְבֹּחַ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, וּמִנְחָה, בְּלוּלָה בַשָּׁמֶן: כִּי הַיּוֹם, יְהוָה נִרְאָה אֲלֵיכֶם. 4
and an ox and a ram for peace-offerings, to sacrifice before The Eternal One;
and a meal-offering mingled with oil;
for to-day The Eternal One appeareth unto you.’

ה וַיִּקְחוּ, אֵת אֲשֶׁר צִוָּה מֹשֶׁה, אֶל-פְּנֵי, אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד; וַיִּקְרְבוּ, כָּל-הָעֵדָה, וַיַּעַמְדוּ, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 5
And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tent of meeting;
and all the community drew near and stood before The Eternal One.

ו וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה, זֶה הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּה יְהוָה תַּעֲשׂוּ–וְיֵרָא אֲלֵיכֶם, כְּבוֹד יְהוָה. 6
And Moses said:
‘This is the thing which The Eternal One commanded that ye should do;
that the glory of The Eternal One may appear unto you.’

ז וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-אַהֲרֹן, קְרַב אֶל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ וַעֲשֵׂה אֶת-חַטָּאתְךָ וְאֶת-עֹלָתֶךָ, וְכַפֵּר בַּעַדְךָ, וּבְעַד הָעָם; וַעֲשֵׂה אֶת-קָרְבַּן הָעָם, וְכַפֵּר בַּעֲדָם, כַּאֲשֶׁר, צִוָּה יְהוָה. 7
And Moses said unto Aaron:
‘Draw near unto the altar, and offer thy sin-offering, and thy burnt-offering, and make atonement for thyself, and for the people;
and present the offering of the people, and make atonement for them;
as The Eternal One commanded.’

ח וַיִּקְרַב אַהֲרֹן, אֶל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וַיִּשְׁחַט אֶת-עֵגֶל הַחַטָּאת, אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ. 8
So Aaron drew near unto the altar, and slew the calf of the sin-offering, which was for himself.

ט וַיַּקְרִבוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן אֶת-הַדָּם, אֵלָיו, וַיִּטְבֹּל אֶצְבָּעוֹ בַּדָּם, וַיִּתֵּן עַל-קַרְנוֹת הַמִּזְבֵּחַ; וְאֶת-הַדָּם יָצַק, אֶל-יְסוֹד הַמִּזְבֵּחַ. 9 And the sons of Aaron presented the blood unto him;
and he dipped his finger in the blood, and put it upon the horns of the altar, and poured out the blood at the base of the altar.

י וְאֶת-הַחֵלֶב וְאֶת-הַכְּלָיֹת וְאֶת-הַיֹּתֶרֶת מִן-הַכָּבֵד, מִן-הַחַטָּאת–הִקְטִיר, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה: כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה יְהוָה, אֶת-מֹשֶׁה. 10 And the fat, and the kidneys, and the lobe of the liver of the sin-offering, he made smoke upon the altar;
as The Eternal One commanded Moses.

יא וְאֶת-הַבָּשָׂר, וְאֶת-הָעוֹר, שָׂרַף בָּאֵשׁ, מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה. 11
And the flesh and the skin were burnt with fire without the camp.

יב וַיִּשְׁחַט, אֶת-הָעֹלָה; וַיַּמְצִאוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן אֵלָיו, אֶת-הַדָּם, וַיִּזְרְקֵהוּ עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, סָבִיב. 12
And he slew the burnt-offering;
and Aaron’s sons delivered unto him the blood, and he dashed it against the altar round about.

יג וְאֶת-הָעֹלָה, הִמְצִיאוּ אֵלָיו לִנְתָחֶיהָ–וְאֶת-הָרֹאשׁ; וַיַּקְטֵר, עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ. 13
And they delivered the burnt-offering unto him, piece by piece, and the head;
and he made them smoke upon the altar.

יד וַיִּרְחַץ אֶת-הַקֶּרֶב, וְאֶת-הַכְּרָעָיִם; וַיַּקְטֵר עַל-הָעֹלָה, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה. 14
And he washed the inwards and the legs, and made them smoke upon the burnt-offering on the altar.

טו וַיַּקְרֵב, אֵת קָרְבַּן הָעָם; וַיִּקַּח אֶת-שְׂעִיר הַחַטָּאת, אֲשֶׁר לָעָם, וַיִּשְׁחָטֵהוּ וַיְחַטְּאֵהוּ, כָּרִאשׁוֹן. 15
And the people’s offering was presented;
and he took the goat of the sin-offering which was for the people, and slew it, and offered it for sin, as the first.

טז וַיַּקְרֵב, אֶת-הָעֹלָה; וַיַּעֲשֶׂהָ, כַּמִּשְׁפָּט. 16
And the burnt-offering was presented;
and he offered it according to the ordinance.

יז וַיַּקְרֵב, אֶת-הַמִּנְחָה, וַיְמַלֵּא כַפּוֹ מִמֶּנָּה, וַיַּקְטֵר עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ–מִלְּבַד, עֹלַת הַבֹּקֶר. 17
And the meal-offering was presented;
and he filled his hand therefrom, and made it smoke upon the altar, besides the burnt-offering of the morning.

יח וַיִּשְׁחַט אֶת-הַשּׁוֹר וְאֶת-הָאַיִל, זֶבַח הַשְּׁלָמִים אֲשֶׁר לָעָם; וַיַּמְצִאוּ בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן אֶת-הַדָּם, אֵלָיו, וַיִּזְרְקֵהוּ עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, סָבִיב. 18
He slew also the ox and the ram, the sacrifice of peace-offerings, which was for the people;
and Aaron’s sons delivered unto him the blood, and he dashed it against the altar round about,

יט וְאֶת-הַחֲלָבִים, מִן-הַשּׁוֹר; וּמִן-הָאַיִל–הָאַלְיָה וְהַמְכַסֶּה וְהַכְּלָיֹת, וְיֹתֶרֶת הַכָּבֵד. 19
and the fat of the ox, and of the ram, the fat tail, and that which covereth the inwards, and the kidneys, and the lobe of the liver.

כ וַיָּשִׂימוּ אֶת-הַחֲלָבִים, עַל-הֶחָזוֹת; וַיַּקְטֵר הַחֲלָבִים, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה. 20
And they put the fat upon the breasts, and he made the fat smoke upon the altar.

כא וְאֵת הֶחָזוֹת, וְאֵת שׁוֹק הַיָּמִין, הֵנִיף אַהֲרֹן תְּנוּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה–כַּאֲשֶׁר, צִוָּה מֹשֶׁה. 21
And the breasts and the right thigh Aaron waved for a wave-offering before The Eternal One;
as Moses commanded.

כב וַיִּשָּׂא אַהֲרֹן אֶת-יָדָו אֶל-הָעָם, וַיְבָרְכֵם; וַיֵּרֶד, מֵעֲשֹׂת הַחַטָּאת וְהָעֹלָה–וְהַשְּׁלָמִים. 22
And Aaron lifted up his hands toward the people, and blessed them;
and he came down from offering the sin-offering, and the burnt-offering, and the peace-offerings.

כג וַיָּבֹא מֹשֶׁה וְאַהֲרֹן, אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד, וַיֵּצְאוּ, וַיְבָרְכוּ אֶת-הָעָם; וַיֵּרָא כְבוֹד-יְהוָה, אֶל-כָּל-הָעָם. 23
And Moses and Aaron went into the tent of meeting, and came out, and blessed the people;
and the glory of The Eternal One appeared unto all the people.

כד וַתֵּצֵא אֵשׁ, מִלִּפְנֵי יְהוָה, וַתֹּאכַל עַל-הַמִּזְבֵּחַ, אֶת-הָעֹלָה וְאֶת-הַחֲלָבִים; וַיַּרְא כָּל-הָעָם וַיָּרֹנּוּ, וַיִּפְּלוּ עַל-פְּנֵיהֶם. 24
And there came forth fire from before The Eternal One, and consumed upon the altar the burnt-offering and the fat;
and when all the people saw it, they shouted, and fell on their faces.

Chapter 10 – א וַיִּקְחוּ בְנֵי-אַהֲרֹן נָדָב וַאֲבִיהוּא אִישׁ מַחְתָּתוֹ, וַיִּתְּנוּ בָהֵן אֵשׁ, וַיָּשִׂימוּ עָלֶיהָ, קְטֹרֶת; וַיַּקְרִיבוּ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, אֵשׁ זָרָה–אֲשֶׁר לֹא צִוָּה, אֹתָם. 1
And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took each of them his censer, and put fire therein, and laid incense thereon, and offered strange fire before The Eternal One, which He had not commanded them.

ב וַתֵּצֵא אֵשׁ מִלִּפְנֵי יְהוָה, וַתֹּאכַל אוֹתָם; וַיָּמֻתוּ, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 2
And there came forth fire from before The Eternal One, and devoured them, and they died before The Eternal One.

ג וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-אַהֲרֹן, הוּא אֲשֶׁר-דִּבֶּר יְהוָה לֵאמֹר בִּקְרֹבַי אֶקָּדֵשׁ, וְעַל-פְּנֵי כָל-הָעָם, אֶכָּבֵד; וַיִּדֹּם, אַהֲרֹן. 3
And Moses said unto Aaron:
‘This is it that The Eternal One spoke, saying:
Through them that are nigh unto Me I will be sanctified, and before all the people I will be glorified.’
And Aaron held his peace.

ד וַיִּקְרָא מֹשֶׁה, אֶל-מִישָׁאֵל וְאֶל אֶלְצָפָן, בְּנֵי עֻזִּיאֵל, דֹּד אַהֲרֹן; וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵהֶם, קִרְבוּ שְׂאוּ אֶת-אֲחֵיכֶם מֵאֵת פְּנֵי-הַקֹּדֶשׁ, אֶל-מִחוּץ, לַמַּחֲנֶה. 4
And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them:
‘Draw near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.’

ה וַיִּקְרְבוּ, וַיִּשָּׂאֻם בְּכֻתֳּנֹתָם, אֶל-מִחוּץ, לַמַּחֲנֶה–כַּאֲשֶׁר, דִּבֶּר מֹשֶׁה. 5
And they drew near, and carried them in their tunics out of the camp, as Moses had said.

ו וַיֹּאמֶר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-אַהֲרֹן וּלְאֶלְעָזָר וּלְאִיתָמָר בָּנָיו רָאשֵׁיכֶם אַל-תִּפְרָעוּ וּבִגְדֵיכֶם לֹא-תִפְרֹמוּ, וְלֹא תָמֻתוּ, וְעַל כָּל-הָעֵדָה, יִקְצֹף; וַאֲחֵיכֶם, כָּל-בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל–יִבְכּוּ אֶת-הַשְּׂרֵפָה, אֲשֶׁר שָׂרַף יְהוָה. 6
And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons:
‘Let not the hair of your heads go loose, neither rend your clothes, that ye die not, and that He be not wroth with all the community;
but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which The Eternal One hath kindled.

ז וּמִפֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד לֹא תֵצְאוּ, פֶּן-תָּמֻתוּ–כִּי-שֶׁמֶן מִשְׁחַת יְהוָה, עֲלֵיכֶם; וַיַּעֲשׂוּ, כִּדְבַר מֹשֶׁה. {פ} 7
And ye shall not go out from the door of the tent of meeting, lest ye die;
for the anointing oil of The Eternal One is upon you.’
And they did according to the word of Moses. {P}

ח וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-אַהֲרֹן לֵאמֹר. 8
And The Eternal One spoke unto Aaron, saying:

ט יַיִן וְשֵׁכָר אַל-תֵּשְׁתְּ אַתָּה וּבָנֶיךָ אִתָּךְ, בְּבֹאֲכֶם אֶל-אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד–וְלֹא תָמֻתוּ: חֻקַּת עוֹלָם, לְדֹרֹתֵיכֶם. 9
‘Drink no wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tent of meeting, that ye die not;
it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations.

י וּלְהַבְדִּיל, בֵּין הַקֹּדֶשׁ וּבֵין הַחֹל, וּבֵין הַטָּמֵא, וּבֵין הַטָּהוֹר. 10
And that ye may put difference between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the clean;

יא וּלְהוֹרֹת, אֶת-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל–אֵת, כָּל-הַחֻקִּים, אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר יְהוָה אֲלֵיהֶם, בְּיַד-מֹשֶׁה. {פ} 11
and that ye may teach the sons of Israel all the customs which The Eternal One hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.’ {P}

יב וַיְדַבֵּר מֹשֶׁה אֶל-אַהֲרֹן, וְאֶל אֶלְעָזָר וְאֶל-אִיתָמָר בָּנָיו הַנּוֹתָרִים, קְחוּ אֶת-הַמִּנְחָה הַנּוֹתֶרֶת מֵאִשֵּׁי יְהוָה, וְאִכְלוּהָ מַצּוֹת אֵצֶל הַמִּזְבֵּחַ: כִּי קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים, הִוא. 12
And Moses spoke unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons that were left:
‘Take the meal-offering that remaineth of the offerings of The Eternal One made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar;
for it is most holy.

יג וַאֲכַלְתֶּם אֹתָהּ, בְּמָקוֹם קָדוֹשׁ, כִּי חָקְךָ וְחָק-בָּנֶיךָ הִוא, מֵאִשֵּׁי יְהוָה: כִּי-כֵן, צֻוֵּיתִי. 13
And ye shall eat it in a holy place, because it is thy due, and thy sons’ due, of the offerings of The Eternal One made by fire;
for so I am commanded.

יד וְאֵת חֲזֵה הַתְּנוּפָה וְאֵת שׁוֹק הַתְּרוּמָה, תֹּאכְלוּ בְּמָקוֹם טָהוֹר–אַתָּה, וּבָנֶיךָ וּבְנֹתֶיךָ אִתָּךְ: כִּי-חָקְךָ וְחָק-בָּנֶיךָ נִתְּנוּ, מִזִּבְחֵי שַׁלְמֵי בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל. 14
And the breast of waving and the thigh of heaving shall ye eat in a clean place;
thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee; for they are given as thy due, and thy sons’ due, out of the sacrifices of the peace-offerings of the sons of Israel.

טו שׁוֹק הַתְּרוּמָה וַחֲזֵה הַתְּנוּפָה, עַל אִשֵּׁי הַחֲלָבִים יָבִיאוּ, לְהָנִיף תְּנוּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה; וְהָיָה לְךָ וּלְבָנֶיךָ אִתְּךָ, לְחָק-עוֹלָם, כַּאֲשֶׁר, צִוָּה יְהוָה. 15
The thigh of heaving and the breast of waving shall they bring with the offerings of the fat made by fire, to wave it for a wave-offering before The Eternal One;
and it shall be thine, and thy sons’ with thee, as a due for ever;
as The Eternal One hath commanded.’

טז וְאֵת שְׂעִיר הַחַטָּאת, דָּרֹשׁ דָּרַשׁ מֹשֶׁה–וְהִנֵּה שֹׂרָף; וַיִּקְצֹף עַל-אֶלְעָזָר וְעַל-אִיתָמָר, בְּנֵי אַהֲרֹן, הַנּוֹתָרִם, לֵאמֹר. 16 And Moses diligently inquired for the goat of the sin-offering, and, behold, it was burnt;
and he was angry with Eleazar and with Ithamar, the sons of Aaron that were left, saying:

יז מַדּוּעַ, לֹא-אֲכַלְתֶּם אֶת-הַחַטָּאת בִּמְקוֹם הַקֹּדֶשׁ–כִּי קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים, הִוא; וְאֹתָהּ נָתַן לָכֶם, לָשֵׂאת אֶת-עֲו‍ֹן הָעֵדָה, לְכַפֵּר עֲלֵיהֶם, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 17
‘Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin-offering in the place of the sanctuary, seeing it is most holy, and He hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the community, to make atonement for them before The Eternal One?

יח הֵן לֹא-הוּבָא אֶת-דָּמָהּ, אֶל-הַקֹּדֶשׁ פְּנִימָה; אָכוֹל תֹּאכְלוּ אֹתָהּ בַּקֹּדֶשׁ, כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוֵּיתִי. 18
Behold, the blood of it was not brought into the sanctuary within;
ye should certainly have eaten it in the sanctuary, as I commanded.’

יט וַיְדַבֵּר אַהֲרֹן אֶל-מֹשֶׁה, הֵן הַיּוֹם הִקְרִיבוּ אֶת-חַטָּאתָם וְאֶת-עֹלָתָם לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, וַתִּקְרֶאנָה אֹתִי, כָּאֵלֶּה; וְאָכַלְתִּי חַטָּאת הַיּוֹם, הַיִּיטַב בְּעֵינֵי יְהוָה. 19
And Aaron spoke unto Moses:
‘Behold, this day have they offered their sin-offering and their burnt-offering before The Eternal One, and there have befallen me such things as these;
and if I had eaten the sin-offering to-day, would it have been well-pleasing in the sight of The Eternal One?

כ וַיִּשְׁמַע מֹשֶׁה, וַיִּיטַב בְּעֵינָיו. {פ} 20
And when Moses heard that, it was well-pleasing in his sight. {P}

Chapter 11 – א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל-אַהֲרֹן, לֵאמֹר אֲלֵהֶם. 1
And The Eternal One spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them:

ב דַּבְּרוּ אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לֵאמֹר: זֹאת הַחַיָּה אֲשֶׁר תֹּאכְלוּ, מִכָּל-הַבְּהֵמָה אֲשֶׁר עַל-הָאָרֶץ. 2
Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying:
These are the living things which ye may eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.

ג כֹּל מַפְרֶסֶת פַּרְסָה, וְשֹׁסַעַת שֶׁסַע פְּרָסֹת, מַעֲלַת גֵּרָה, בַּבְּהֵמָה–אֹתָהּ, תֹּאכֵלוּ. 3
Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is wholly cloven-footed, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that may ye eat.

ד אַךְ אֶת-זֶה, לֹא תֹאכְלוּ, מִמַּעֲלֵי הַגֵּרָה, וּמִמַּפְרִסֵי הַפַּרְסָה: אֶת-הַגָּמָל כִּי-מַעֲלֵה גֵרָה הוּא, וּפַרְסָה אֵינֶנּוּ מַפְרִיס–טָמֵא הוּא, לָכֶם. 4
Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that only chew the cud, or of them that only part the hoof:
the camel, because he cheweth the cud but parteth not the hoof, he is unclean unto you.

ה וְאֶת-הַשָּׁפָן, כִּי-מַעֲלֵה גֵרָה הוּא, וּפַרְסָה, לֹא יַפְרִיס; טָמֵא הוּא, לָכֶם. 5
And the rock-badger, because he cheweth the cud but parteth not the hoof, he is unclean unto you.

ו וְאֶת-הָאַרְנֶבֶת, כִּי-מַעֲלַת גֵּרָה הִוא, וּפַרְסָה, לֹא הִפְרִיסָה; טְמֵאָה הִוא, לָכֶם. 6
And the hare, because she cheweth the cud but parteth not the hoof, she is unclean unto you.

ז וְאֶת-הַחֲזִיר כִּי-מַפְרִיס פַּרְסָה הוּא, וְשֹׁסַע שֶׁסַע פַּרְסָה, וְהוּא, גֵּרָה לֹא-יִגָּר; טָמֵא הוּא, לָכֶם. 7
And the swine, because he parteth the hoof, and is cloven-footed, but cheweth not the cud, he is unclean unto you.

ח מִבְּשָׂרָם לֹא תֹאכֵלוּ, וּבְנִבְלָתָם לֹא תִגָּעוּ; טְמֵאִים הֵם, לָכֶם. 8
Of their flesh ye shall not eat, and their carcasses ye shall not touch;
they are unclean unto you.

ט אֶת-זֶה, תֹּאכְלוּ, מִכֹּל, אֲשֶׁר בַּמָּיִם: כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ סְנַפִּיר וְקַשְׂקֶשֶׂת בַּמַּיִם, בַּיַּמִּים וּבַנְּחָלִים–אֹתָם תֹּאכֵלוּ. 9
These may ye eat of all that are in the waters:
whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them may ye eat.

י וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר אֵין-לוֹ סְנַפִּיר וְקַשְׂקֶשֶׂת, בַּיַּמִּים וּבַנְּחָלִים, מִכֹּל שֶׁרֶץ הַמַּיִם, וּמִכֹּל נֶפֶשׁ הַחַיָּה אֲשֶׁר בַּמָּיִם–שֶׁקֶץ הֵם, לָכֶם. 10
And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that swarm in the waters, and of all the living creatures that are in the waters, they are a detestable thing unto you,

יא וְשֶׁקֶץ, יִהְיוּ לָכֶם; מִבְּשָׂרָם לֹא תֹאכֵלוּ, וְאֶת-נִבְלָתָם תְּשַׁקֵּצוּ. 11
and they shall be a detestable thing unto you;
ye shall not eat of their flesh, and their carcasses ye shall have in detestation.

יב כֹּל אֲשֶׁר אֵין-לוֹ סְנַפִּיר וְקַשְׂקֶשֶׂת, בַּמָּיִם–שֶׁקֶץ הוּא, לָכֶם. 12
All which hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that is a detestable thing unto you.

יג וְאֶת-אֵלֶּה תְּשַׁקְּצוּ מִן-הָעוֹף, לֹא יֵאָכְלוּ שֶׁקֶץ הֵם: אֶת-הַנֶּשֶׁר, וְאֶת-הַפֶּרֶס, וְאֵת, הָעָזְנִיָּה. 13
And these ye shall have in detestation among the fowls;
they shall not be eaten, they are a detestable thing:
the great vulture, and the bearded vulture, and the ospray;

יד וְאֶת-הַדָּאָה–וְאֶת-הָאַיָּה, לְמִינָהּ. 14
and the kite, and the falcon after its kinds;

טו אֵת כָּל-עֹרֵב, לְמִינוֹ. 15
every raven after its kinds;

טז וְאֵת בַּת הַיַּעֲנָה, וְאֶת-הַתַּחְמָס וְאֶת-הַשָּׁחַף; וְאֶת-הַנֵּץ, לְמִינֵהוּ. 16
and the ostrich, and the night-hawk, and the sea-mew, and the hawk after its kinds;

יז וְאֶת-הַכּוֹס וְאֶת-הַשָּׁלָךְ, וְאֶת-הַיַּנְשׁוּף. 17
and the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl;

יח וְאֶת-הַתִּנְשֶׁמֶת וְאֶת-הַקָּאָת, וְאֶת-הָרָחָם. 18
and the horned owl, and the pelican, and the carrion-vulture;

יט וְאֵת, הַחֲסִידָה, הָאֲנָפָה, לְמִינָהּ; וְאֶת-הַדּוּכִיפַת, וְאֶת-הָעֲטַלֵּף. 19
and the stork, and the heron after its kinds, and the hoopoe, and the bat.

כ כֹּל שֶׁרֶץ הָעוֹף, הַהֹלֵךְ עַל-אַרְבַּע–שֶׁקֶץ הוּא, לָכֶם. 20
All winged swarming things that go upon all fours are a detestable thing unto you.

כא אַךְ אֶת-זֶה, תֹּאכְלוּ, מִכֹּל שֶׁרֶץ הָעוֹף, הַהֹלֵךְ עַל-אַרְבַּע: אֲשֶׁר-לא (לוֹ) כְרָעַיִם מִמַּעַל לְרַגְלָיו, לְנַתֵּר בָּהֵן עַל-הָאָרֶץ. 21
Yet these may ye eat of all winged swarming things that go upon all fours, which have jointed legs above their feet, wherewith to leap upon the earth;

כב אֶת-אֵלֶּה מֵהֶם, תֹּאכֵלוּ–אֶת-הָאַרְבֶּה לְמִינוֹ, וְאֶת-הַסָּלְעָם לְמִינֵהוּ; וְאֶת-הַחַרְגֹּל לְמִינֵהוּ, וְאֶת-הֶחָגָב לְמִינֵהוּ. 22
even these of them ye may eat:
the locust after its kinds, and the bald locust after its kinds, and the cricket after its kinds, and the grasshopper after its kinds.

כג וְכֹל שֶׁרֶץ הָעוֹף, אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ אַרְבַּע רַגְלָיִם–שֶׁקֶץ הוּא, לָכֶם. 23
And all winged swarming things, which have four feet, are a detestable thing unto you.

כד וּלְאֵלֶּה, תִּטַּמָּאוּ; כָּל-הַנֹּגֵעַ בְּנִבְלָתָם, יִטְמָא עַד-הָעָרֶב. 24
And by these ye shall become unclean;
whosoever toucheth the carcass of them shall be unclean until even.

כה וְכָל-הַנֹּשֵׂא, מִנִּבְלָתָם–יְכַבֵּס בְּגָדָיו, וְטָמֵא עַד-הָעָרֶב. 25
And whosoever beareth aught of the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

כו לְכָל-הַבְּהֵמָה אֲשֶׁר הִוא מַפְרֶסֶת פַּרְסָה וְשֶׁסַע אֵינֶנָּה שֹׁסַעַת, וְגֵרָה אֵינֶנָּה מַעֲלָה–טְמֵאִים הֵם, לָכֶם; כָּל-הַנֹּגֵעַ בָּהֶם, יִטְמָא. 26 Every beast which parteth the hoof, but is not cloven footed, nor cheweth the cud, is unclean unto you;
every one that toucheth them shall be unclean.

כז וְכֹל הוֹלֵךְ עַל-כַּפָּיו, בְּכָל-הַחַיָּה הַהֹלֶכֶת עַל-אַרְבַּע–טְמֵאִים הֵם, לָכֶם; כָּל-הַנֹּגֵעַ בְּנִבְלָתָם, יִטְמָא עַד-הָעָרֶב. 27
And whatsoever goeth upon its paws, among all beasts that go on all fours, they are unclean unto you;
whoso toucheth their carcass shall be unclean until the even.

כח וְהַנֹּשֵׂא, אֶת-נִבְלָתָם–יְכַבֵּס בְּגָדָיו, וְטָמֵא עַד-הָעָרֶב; טְמֵאִים הֵמָּה, לָכֶם. {ס} 28
And he that beareth the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even;
they are unclean unto you. {S}

כט וְזֶה לָכֶם הַטָּמֵא, בַּשֶּׁרֶץ הַשֹּׁרֵץ עַל-הָאָרֶץ: הַחֹלֶד וְהָעַכְבָּר, וְהַצָּב לְמִינֵהוּ. 29
And these are they which are unclean unto you among the swarming things that swarm upon the earth:
the weasel, and the mouse, and the great lizard after its kinds,

ל וְהָאֲנָקָה וְהַכֹּחַ, וְהַלְּטָאָה; וְהַחֹמֶט, וְהַתִּנְשָׁמֶת. 30
and the gecko, and the land-crocodile, and the lizard, and the sand-lizard, and the chameleon.

לא אֵלֶּה הַטְּמֵאִים לָכֶם, בְּכָל-הַשָּׁרֶץ; כָּל-הַנֹּגֵעַ בָּהֶם בְּמֹתָם, יִטְמָא עַד-הָעָרֶב. 31
These are they which are unclean to you among all that swarm;
whosoever doth touch them, when they are dead, shall be unclean until the even.

לב וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר-יִפֹּל-עָלָיו מֵהֶם בְּמֹתָם יִטְמָא, מִכָּל-כְּלִי-עֵץ אוֹ בֶגֶד אוֹ-עוֹר אוֹ שָׂק, כָּל-כְּלִי, אֲשֶׁר-יֵעָשֶׂה מְלָאכָה בָּהֶם; בַּמַּיִם יוּבָא וְטָמֵא עַד-הָעֶרֶב, וְטָהֵר. 32
And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean;
whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherewith any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even;
then shall it be clean.

לג וְכָל-כְּלִי-חֶרֶשׂ–אֲשֶׁר-יִפֹּל מֵהֶם, אֶל-תּוֹכוֹ: כֹּל אֲשֶׁר בְּתוֹכוֹ יִטְמָא, וְאֹתוֹ תִשְׁבֹּרוּ. 33
And every earthen vessel whereinto any of them falleth, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean, and it ye shall break.

לד מִכָּל-הָאֹכֶל אֲשֶׁר יֵאָכֵל, אֲשֶׁר יָבוֹא עָלָיו מַיִם–יִטְמָא; וְכָל-מַשְׁקֶה אֲשֶׁר יִשָּׁתֶה, בְּכָל-כְּלִי יִטְמָא. 34
All food therein which may be eaten, that on which water cometh, shall be unclean;
and all drink in every such vessel that may be drunk shall be unclean.

לה וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר-יִפֹּל מִנִּבְלָתָם עָלָיו, יִטְמָא–תַּנּוּר וְכִירַיִם יֻתָּץ, טְמֵאִים הֵם; וּטְמֵאִים, יִהְיוּ לָכֶם. 35
And every thing whereupon any part of their carcass falleth shall be unclean;
whether oven, or range for pots, it shall be broken in pieces;
they are unclean, and shall be unclean unto you.

לו אַךְ מַעְיָן וּבוֹר מִקְוֵה-מַיִם, יִהְיֶה טָהוֹר; וְנֹגֵעַ בְּנִבְלָתָם, יִטְמָא. 36
Nevertheless a fountain or a cistern wherein is a gathering of water shall be clean;
but he who toucheth their carcass shall be unclean.

לז וְכִי יִפֹּל מִנִּבְלָתָם, עַל-כָּל-זֶרַע זֵרוּעַ אֲשֶׁר יִזָּרֵעַ–טָהוֹר, הוּא. 37
And if aught of their carcass fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it is clean.

לח וְכִי יֻתַּן-מַיִם עַל-זֶרַע, וְנָפַל מִנִּבְלָתָם עָלָיו–טָמֵא הוּא, לָכֶם. {ס} 38
And if water be put upon the seed, and aught of their carcass fall thereon, it is unclean unto you. {S}

לט וְכִי יָמוּת מִן-הַבְּהֵמָה, אֲשֶׁר-הִיא לָכֶם לְאָכְלָה–הַנֹּגֵעַ בְּנִבְלָתָהּ, יִטְמָא עַד-הָעָרֶב. 39
And if any beast, of which ye may eat, die, he that toucheth the carcass thereof shall be unclean until the even.

מ וְהָאֹכֵל, מִנִּבְלָתָהּ–יְכַבֵּס בְּגָדָיו, וְטָמֵא עַד-הָעָרֶב; וְהַנֹּשֵׂא, אֶת-נִבְלָתָהּ–יְכַבֵּס בְּגָדָיו, וְטָמֵא עַד-הָעָרֶב. 40
And he that eateth of the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even;
he also that beareth the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.

מא וְכָל-הַשֶּׁרֶץ, הַשֹּׁרֵץ עַל-הָאָרֶץ–שֶׁקֶץ הוּא, לֹא יֵאָכֵל. 41
And every swarming thing that swarmeth upon the earth is a detestable thing;
it shall not be eaten.

מב כֹּל הוֹלֵךְ עַל-גָּחוֹן וְכֹל הוֹלֵךְ עַל-אַרְבַּע, עַד כָּל-מַרְבֵּה רַגְלַיִם, לְכָל-הַשֶּׁרֶץ, הַשֹּׁרֵץ עַל-הָאָרֶץ–לֹא תֹאכְלוּם, כִּי-שֶׁקֶץ הֵם. 42
Whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all fours, or whatsoever hath many feet, even all swarming things that swarm upon the earth, them ye shall not eat;
for they are a detestable thing.

מג אַל-תְּשַׁקְּצוּ, אֶת-נַפְשֹׁתֵיכֶם, בְּכָל-הַשֶּׁרֶץ, הַשֹּׁרֵץ; וְלֹא תִטַּמְּאוּ בָּהֶם, וְנִטְמֵתֶם בָּם. 43
Ye shall not make yourselves detestable with any swarming thing that swarmeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.

מד כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה, אֱלֹהֵיכֶם, וְהִתְקַדִּשְׁתֶּם וִהְיִיתֶם קְדֹשִׁים, כִּי קָדוֹשׁ אָנִי; וְלֹא תְטַמְּאוּ אֶת-נַפְשֹׁתֵיכֶם, בְּכָל-הַשֶּׁרֶץ הָרֹמֵשׂ עַל-הָאָרֶץ. 44
Because I am The Eternal One your Mighty One;
sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy;
for I am holy;
neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of swarming thing that moveth upon the earth.

מה כִּי אֲנִי יְהוָה, הַמַּעֲלֶה אֶתְכֶם מֵאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם, לִהְיֹת לָכֶם, לֵאלֹהִים; וִהְיִיתֶם קְדֹשִׁים, כִּי קָדוֹשׁ אָנִי. 45
Because I am The Eternal One that brought you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your Mighty One;
ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.

מו זֹאת תּוֹרַת הַבְּהֵמָה, וְהָעוֹף, וְכֹל נֶפֶשׁ הַחַיָּה, הָרֹמֶשֶׂת בַּמָּיִם; וּלְכָל-נֶפֶשׁ, הַשֹּׁרֶצֶת עַל-הָאָרֶץ. 46
This is the law of the beast, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moveth in the waters, and of every creature that swarmeth upon the earth;

מז לְהַבְדִּיל, בֵּין הַטָּמֵא וּבֵין הַטָּהֹר; וּבֵין הַחַיָּה, הַנֶּאֱכֶלֶת, וּבֵין הַחַיָּה, אֲשֶׁר לֹא תֵאָכֵל. {פ} 47
to make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the living thing that may be eaten and the living thing that may not be eaten. {P}

Chapter 12 – א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 1
And The Eternal One spoke unto Moses, saying:

ב דַּבֵּר אֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לֵאמֹר, אִשָּׁה כִּי תַזְרִיעַ, וְיָלְדָה זָכָר–וְטָמְאָה שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, כִּימֵי נִדַּת דְּו‍ֹתָהּ תִּטְמָא. 2
Speak unto the sons of Israel, saying:
If a woman be delivered, and bear a man-child, then she shall be unclean seven days;
as in the days of the impurity of her sickness shall she be unclean.

ג וּבַיּוֹם, הַשְּׁמִינִי, יִמּוֹל, בְּשַׂר עָרְלָתוֹ. 3
And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.

ד וּשְׁלֹשִׁים יוֹם וּשְׁלֹשֶׁת יָמִים, תֵּשֵׁב בִּדְמֵי טָהֳרָה; בְּכָל-קֹדֶשׁ לֹא-תִגָּע, וְאֶל-הַמִּקְדָּשׁ לֹא תָבֹא, עַד-מְלֹאת, יְמֵי טָהֳרָהּ. 4 And she shall continue in the blood of purification three and thirty days;
she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purification be fulfilled.

ה וְאִם-נְקֵבָה תֵלֵד, וְטָמְאָה שְׁבֻעַיִם כְּנִדָּתָהּ; וְשִׁשִּׁים יוֹם וְשֵׁשֶׁת יָמִים, תֵּשֵׁב עַל-דְּמֵי טָהֳרָה. 5
But if she bear a maid-child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her impurity;
and she shall continue in the blood of purification threescore and six days.

ו וּבִמְלֹאת יְמֵי טָהֳרָהּ, לְבֵן אוֹ לְבַת, תָּבִיא כֶּבֶשׂ בֶּן-שְׁנָתוֹ לְעֹלָה, וּבֶן-יוֹנָה אוֹ-תֹר לְחַטָּאת–אֶל-פֶּתַח אֹהֶל-מוֹעֵד, אֶל-הַכֹּהֵן. 6
And when the days of her purification are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt-offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtle-dove, for a sin-offering, unto the door of the tent of meeting, unto the priest.

ז וְהִקְרִיבוֹ לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, וְכִפֶּר עָלֶיהָ, וְטָהֲרָה, מִמְּקֹר דָּמֶיהָ: זֹאת תּוֹרַת הַיֹּלֶדֶת, לַזָּכָר אוֹ לַנְּקֵבָה. 7
And he shall offer it before The Eternal One, and make atonement for her;
and she shall be cleansed from the fountain of her blood.
This is the law for her that beareth, whether a male or a female.

ח וְאִם-לֹא תִמְצָא יָדָהּ, דֵּי שֶׂה–וְלָקְחָה שְׁתֵּי-תֹרִים אוֹ שְׁנֵי בְּנֵי יוֹנָה, אֶחָד לְעֹלָה וְאֶחָד לְחַטָּאת; וְכִפֶּר עָלֶיהָ הַכֹּהֵן, וְטָהֵרָה.
{פ}
8 And if her means suffice not for a lamb, then she shall take two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons:
the 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. {P}

Chapter 13 – א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל-אַהֲרֹן לֵאמֹר. 1
And The Eternal One spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying:

ב אָדָם, כִּי-יִהְיֶה בְעוֹר-בְּשָׂרוֹ שְׂאֵת אוֹ-סַפַּחַת אוֹ בַהֶרֶת, וְהָיָה בְעוֹר-בְּשָׂרוֹ, לְנֶגַע צָרָעַת–וְהוּבָא אֶל-אַהֲרֹן הַכֹּהֵן, אוֹ אֶל-אַחַד מִבָּנָיו הַכֹּהֲנִים. 2
When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, or a scab, or a bright spot, and it become in the skin of his flesh the plague of leprosy, then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests.

ג וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַנֶּגַע בְּעוֹר-הַבָּשָׂר וְשֵׂעָר בַּנֶּגַע הָפַךְ לָבָן, וּמַרְאֵה הַנֶּגַע עָמֹק מֵעוֹר בְּשָׂרוֹ–נֶגַע צָרַעַת, הוּא; וְרָאָהוּ הַכֹּהֵן, וְטִמֵּא אֹתוֹ. 3
And the priest shall look upon the plague in the skin of the flesh;
and if the hair in the plague be turned white, and the appearance of the plague be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is the plague of leprosy;
and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

ד וְאִם-בַּהֶרֶת לְבָנָה הִוא בְּעוֹר בְּשָׂרוֹ, וְעָמֹק אֵין-מַרְאֶהָ מִן-הָעוֹר, וּשְׂעָרָה, לֹא-הָפַךְ לָבָן–וְהִסְגִּיר הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַנֶּגַע, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים. 4
And if the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and the appearance thereof be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white, then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days.

ה וְרָאָהוּ הַכֹּהֵן, בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי, וְהִנֵּה הַנֶּגַע עָמַד בְּעֵינָיו, לֹא-פָשָׂה הַנֶּגַע בָּעוֹר–וְהִסְגִּירוֹ הַכֹּהֵן שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, שֵׁנִית. 5 And the priest shall look on him the seventh day;
and, behold, if the plague stay in its appearance, and the plague be not spread in the skin, then the priest shall shut him up seven days more.

ו וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן אֹתוֹ בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי, שֵׁנִית, וְהִנֵּה כֵּהָה הַנֶּגַע, וְלֹא-פָשָׂה הַנֶּגַע בָּעוֹר–וְטִהֲרוֹ הַכֹּהֵן מִסְפַּחַת הִוא, וְכִבֶּס בְּגָדָיו וְטָהֵר. 6
And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day;
and, behold, if the plague be dim, and the plague be not spread in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean:
it is a scab;
and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

ז וְאִם-פָּשֹׂה תִפְשֶׂה הַמִּסְפַּחַת בָּעוֹר, אַחֲרֵי הֵרָאֹתוֹ אֶל-הַכֹּהֵן לְטָהֳרָתוֹ; וְנִרְאָה שֵׁנִית, אֶל-הַכֹּהֵן. 7
But if the scab spread abroad in the skin, after that he hath shown himself to the priest for his cleansing, he shall show himself to the priest again.

ח וְרָאָה, הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה פָּשְׂתָה הַמִּסְפַּחַת, בָּעוֹר–וְטִמְּאוֹ הַכֹּהֵן, צָרַעַת הִוא. {פ} 8
And the priest shall look, and, behold, if the scab be spread in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean:
it is leprosy. {P}

ט נֶגַע צָרַעַת, כִּי תִהְיֶה בְּאָדָם; וְהוּבָא, אֶל-הַכֹּהֵן. 9
When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought unto the priest.

י וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה שְׂאֵת-לְבָנָה בָּעוֹר, וְהִיא, הָפְכָה שֵׂעָר לָבָן; וּמִחְיַת בָּשָׂר חַי, בַּשְׂאֵת. 10
And the priest shall look, and, behold, if there be a white rising in the skin, and it have turned the hair white, and there be quick raw flesh in the rising,

יא צָרַעַת נוֹשֶׁנֶת הִוא בְּעוֹר בְּשָׂרוֹ, וְטִמְּאוֹ הַכֹּהֵן: לֹא יַסְגִּרֶנּוּ, כִּי טָמֵא הוּא. 11
it is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean;
he shall not shut him up;
for he is unclean.

יב וְאִם-פָּרוֹחַ תִּפְרַח הַצָּרַעַת, בָּעוֹר, וְכִסְּתָה הַצָּרַעַת אֵת כָּל-עוֹר הַנֶּגַע, מֵרֹאשׁוֹ וְעַד-רַגְלָיו–לְכָל-מַרְאֵה, עֵינֵי הַכֹּהֵן. 12 And if the leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the leprosy cover all the skin of him that hath the plague from his head even to his feet, as far as appeareth to the priest;

יג וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה כִסְּתָה הַצָּרַעַת אֶת-כָּל-בְּשָׂרוֹ–וְטִהַר, אֶת-הַנָּגַע: כֻּלּוֹ הָפַךְ לָבָן, טָהוֹר הוּא. 13
then the priest shall look;
and, behold, if the leprosy have covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague;
it is all turned white:
he is clean.

יד וּבְיוֹם הֵרָאוֹת בּוֹ בָּשָׂר חַי, יִטְמָא. 14
But whensoever raw flesh appeareth in him, he shall be unclean.

טו וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַבָּשָׂר הַחַי, וְטִמְּאוֹ: הַבָּשָׂר הַחַי טָמֵא הוּא, צָרַעַת הוּא. 15
And the priest shall look on the raw flesh, and pronounce him unclean;
the raw flesh is unclean:
it is leprosy.

טז אוֹ כִי יָשׁוּב הַבָּשָׂר הַחַי, וְנֶהְפַּךְ לְלָבָן; וּבָא, אֶל-הַכֹּהֵן. 16
But if the raw flesh again be turned into white, then he shall come unto the priest;

יז וְרָאָהוּ, הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה נֶהְפַּךְ הַנֶּגַע, לְלָבָן–וְטִהַר הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַנֶּגַע, טָהוֹר הוּא. {פ} 17
and the priest shall look on him;
and, behold, if the plague be turned into white, then the priest shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague:
he is clean. {P}

יח וּבָשָׂר, כִּי-יִהְיֶה בוֹ-בְעֹרוֹ שְׁחִין; וְנִרְפָּא. 18
And when the flesh hath in the skin thereof a boil, and it is healed,

יט וְהָיָה בִּמְקוֹם הַשְּׁחִין, שְׂאֵת לְבָנָה, אוֹ בַהֶרֶת, לְבָנָה אֲדַמְדָּמֶת; וְנִרְאָה, אֶל-הַכֹּהֵן. 19
and in the place of the boil there is a white rising, or a bright spot, reddish-white, then it shall be shown to the priest.

כ וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה מַרְאֶהָ שָׁפָל מִן-הָעוֹר, וּשְׂעָרָהּ, הָפַךְ לָבָן–וְטִמְּאוֹ הַכֹּהֵן נֶגַע-צָרַעַת הִוא, בַּשְּׁחִין פָּרָחָה. 20
And the priest shall look;
and, behold, if the appearance thereof be lower than the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean:
it is the plague of leprosy, it hath broken out in the boil.

כא וְאִם יִרְאֶנָּה הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה אֵין-בָּהּ שֵׂעָר לָבָן, וּשְׁפָלָה אֵינֶנָּה מִן-הָעוֹר, וְהִיא כֵהָה–וְהִסְגִּירוֹ הַכֹּהֵן, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים. 21 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs therein, and it be not lower than the skin, but be dim, then the priest shall shut him up seven days.

כב וְאִם-פָּשֹׂה תִפְשֶׂה, בָּעוֹר–וְטִמֵּא הַכֹּהֵן אֹתוֹ, נֶגַע הִוא. 22
And if it spread abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean:
it is a plague.

כג וְאִם-תַּחְתֶּיהָ תַּעֲמֹד הַבַּהֶרֶת, לֹא פָשָׂתָה–צָרֶבֶת הַשְּׁחִין, הִוא; וְטִהֲרוֹ, הַכֹּהֵן. {ס} 23
But if the bright spot stay in its place, and be not spread, it is the scar of the boil;
and the priest shall pronounce him clean. {S}

כד אוֹ בָשָׂר, כִּי-יִהְיֶה בְעֹרוֹ מִכְוַת-אֵשׁ; וְהָיְתָה מִחְיַת הַמִּכְוָה, בַּהֶרֶת לְבָנָה אֲדַמְדֶּמֶת–אוֹ לְבָנָה. 24
Or when the flesh hath in the skin thereof a burning by fire, and the quick flesh of the burning become a bright spot, reddish-white, or white;

כה וְרָאָה אֹתָהּ הַכֹּהֵן וְהִנֵּה נֶהְפַּךְ שֵׂעָר לָבָן בַּבַּהֶרֶת, וּמַרְאֶהָ עָמֹק מִן-הָעוֹר–צָרַעַת הִוא, בַּמִּכְוָה פָּרָחָה; וְטִמֵּא אֹתוֹ הַכֹּהֵן, נֶגַע צָרַעַת הִוא. 25
then the priest shall look upon it;
and, behold, if the hair in the bright spot be turned white, and the appearance thereof be deeper than the skin, it is leprosy, it hath broken out in the burning;
and the priest shall pronounce him unclean:
it is the plague of leprosy.

כו וְאִם יִרְאֶנָּה הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה אֵין-בַּבַּהֶרֶת שֵׂעָר לָבָן, וּשְׁפָלָה אֵינֶנָּה מִן-הָעוֹר, וְהִוא כֵהָה–וְהִסְגִּירוֹ הַכֹּהֵן, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים. 26 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hair in the bright spot, and it be no lower than the skin, but be dim;
then the priest shall shut him up seven days.

כז וְרָאָהוּ הַכֹּהֵן, בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי: אִם-פָּשֹׂה תִפְשֶׂה, בָּעוֹר–וְטִמֵּא הַכֹּהֵן אֹתוֹ, נֶגַע צָרַעַת הִוא. 27
And the priest shall look upon him the seventh day;
if it spread abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean:
it is the plague of leprosy.

כח וְאִם-תַּחְתֶּיהָ תַעֲמֹד הַבַּהֶרֶת לֹא-פָשְׂתָה בָעוֹר, וְהִוא כֵהָה–שְׂאֵת הַמִּכְוָה, הִוא; וְטִהֲרוֹ, הַכֹּהֵן–כִּי-צָרֶבֶת הַמִּכְוָה, הִוא. {פ} 28
And if the bright spot stay in its place, and be not spread in the skin, but be dim, it is the rising of the burning, and the priest shall pronounce him clean;
for it is the scar of the burning. {P}

כט וְאִישׁ אוֹ אִשָּׁה, כִּי-יִהְיֶה בוֹ נָגַע, בְּרֹאשׁ, אוֹ בְזָקָן. 29
And when a man or woman hath a plague upon the head or upon the beard,

ל וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַנֶּגַע, וְהִנֵּה מַרְאֵהוּ עָמֹק מִן-הָעוֹר, וּבוֹ שֵׂעָר צָהֹב, דָּק–וְטִמֵּא אֹתוֹ הַכֹּהֵן נֶתֶק הוּא, צָרַעַת הָרֹאשׁ אוֹ הַזָּקָן הוּא. 30
then the priest shall look on the plague;
and, behold, if the appearance thereof be deeper than the skin, and there be in it yellow thin hair, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean:
it is a scall, it is leprosy of the head or of the beard.

לא וְכִי-יִרְאֶה הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-נֶגַע הַנֶּתֶק, וְהִנֵּה אֵין-מַרְאֵהוּ עָמֹק מִן-הָעוֹר, וְשֵׂעָר שָׁחֹר, אֵין בּוֹ–וְהִסְגִּיר הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-נֶגַע הַנֶּתֶק, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים. 31
And if the priest look on the plague of the scall, and, behold, the appearance thereof be not deeper than the skin, and there be no black hair in it, then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague of the scall seven days.

לב וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַנֶּגַע, בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי, וְהִנֵּה לֹא-פָשָׂה הַנֶּתֶק, וְלֹא-הָיָה בוֹ שֵׂעָר צָהֹב; וּמַרְאֵה הַנֶּתֶק, אֵין עָמֹק מִן-הָעוֹר. 32 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague;
and, behold, if the scall be not spread, and there be in it no yellow hair, and the appearance of the scall be not deeper than the skin,

לג וְהִתְגַּלָּח–וְאֶת-הַנֶּתֶק, לֹא יְגַלֵּחַ; וְהִסְגִּיר הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַנֶּתֶק שִׁבְעַת יָמִים, שֵׁנִית. 33
then he shall be shaven, but the scall shall he not shave;
and the priest shall shut up him that hath the scall seven days more.

לד וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַנֶּתֶק בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי, וְהִנֵּה לֹא-פָשָׂה הַנֶּתֶק בָּעוֹר, וּמַרְאֵהוּ, אֵינֶנּוּ עָמֹק מִן-הָעוֹר–וְטִהַר אֹתוֹ הַכֹּהֵן, וְכִבֶּס בְּגָדָיו וְטָהֵר. 34
And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall;
and, behold, if the scall be not spread in the skin, and the appearance thereof be not deeper than the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean;
and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

לה וְאִם-פָּשֹׂה יִפְשֶׂה הַנֶּתֶק, בָּעוֹר, אַחֲרֵי, טָהֳרָתוֹ. 35
But if the scall spread abroad in the skin after his cleansing,

לו וְרָאָהוּ, הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה פָּשָׂה הַנֶּתֶק, בָּעוֹר–לֹא-יְבַקֵּר הַכֹּהֵן לַשֵּׂעָר הַצָּהֹב, טָמֵא הוּא. 36
then the priest shall look on him;
and, behold, if the scall be spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for the yellow hair:
he is unclean.

לז וְאִם-בְּעֵינָיו עָמַד הַנֶּתֶק וְשֵׂעָר שָׁחֹר צָמַח-בּוֹ, נִרְפָּא הַנֶּתֶק–טָהוֹר הוּא; וְטִהֲרוֹ, הַכֹּהֵן. {ס} 37
But if the scall stay in its appearance, and black hair be grown up therein;
the scall is healed, he is clean; and the priest shall pronounce him clean. {S}

לח וְאִישׁ, אוֹ-אִשָּׁה, כִּי-יִהְיֶה בְעוֹר-בְּשָׂרָם, בֶּהָרֹת–בֶּהָרֹת, לְבָנֹת. 38
And if a man or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright spots, even white bright spots;

לט וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה בְעוֹר-בְּשָׂרָם בֶּהָרֹת–כֵּהוֹת לְבָנֹת: בֹּהַק הוּא פָּרַח בָּעוֹר, טָהוֹר הוּא. {ס} 39
then the priest shall look;
and, behold, if the bright spots in the skin of their flesh be of a dull white, it is a tetter, it hath broken out in the skin:
he is clean. {S}

מ וְאִישׁ, כִּי יִמָּרֵט רֹאשׁוֹ–קֵרֵחַ הוּא, טָהוֹר הוּא. 40
And if a man’s hair be fallen off his head, he is bald;
yet is he clean.

מא וְאִם מִפְּאַת פָּנָיו, יִמָּרֵט רֹאשׁוֹ–גִּבֵּחַ הוּא, טָהוֹר הוּא. 41
And if his hair be fallen off from the front part of his head, he is forehead-bald;
yet is he clean.

מב וְכִי-יִהְיֶה בַקָּרַחַת אוֹ בַגַּבַּחַת, נֶגַע לָבָן אֲדַמְדָּם–צָרַעַת פֹּרַחַת הִוא, בְּקָרַחְתּוֹ אוֹ בְגַבַּחְתּוֹ. 42
But if there be in the bald head, or the bald forehead, a reddish-white plague, it is leprosy breaking out in his bald head, or his bald forehead.

מג וְרָאָה אֹתוֹ הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה שְׂאֵת-הַנֶּגַע לְבָנָה אֲדַמְדֶּמֶת, בְּקָרַחְתּוֹ, אוֹ בְגַבַּחְתּוֹ–כְּמַרְאֵה צָרַעַת, עוֹר בָּשָׂר. 43
Then the priest shall look upon him; and, behold, if the rising of the plague be reddish-white in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, as the appearance of leprosy in the skin of the flesh,

מד אִישׁ-צָרוּעַ הוּא, טָמֵא הוּא; טַמֵּא יְטַמְּאֶנּוּ הַכֹּהֵן, בְּרֹאשׁוֹ נִגְעוֹ. 44
he is a leprous man, he is unclean;
the priest shall surely pronounce him unclean:
his plague is in his head.

מה וְהַצָּרוּעַ אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ הַנֶּגַע, בְּגָדָיו יִהְיוּ פְרֻמִים וְרֹאשׁוֹ יִהְיֶה פָרוּעַ, וְעַל-שָׂפָם, יַעְטֶה; וְטָמֵא טָמֵא, יִקְרָא. 45
And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and the hair of his head shall go loose, and he shall cover his upper lip, and shall cry:
‘Unclean, unclean.’

מו כָּל-יְמֵי אֲשֶׁר הַנֶּגַע בּוֹ, יִטְמָא–טָמֵא הוּא: בָּדָד יֵשֵׁב, מִחוּץ לַמַּחֲנֶה מוֹשָׁבוֹ. {ס} 46
All the days wherein the plague is in him he shall be unclean;
he is unclean;
he shall dwell alone;
without the camp shall his dwelling be. {S}

מז וְהַבֶּגֶד, כִּי-יִהְיֶה בוֹ נֶגַע צָרָעַת: בְּבֶגֶד צֶמֶר, אוֹ בְּבֶגֶד פִּשְׁתִּים. 47
And when the plague of leprosy is in a garment, whether it be a woolen garment, or a linen garment;

מח אוֹ בִשְׁתִי אוֹ בְעֵרֶב, לַפִּשְׁתִּים וְלַצָּמֶר; אוֹ בְעוֹר, אוֹ בְּכָל-מְלֶאכֶת עוֹר. 48
or in the warp, or in the woof, whether they be of linen, or of wool;
or in a skin, or in any thing made of skin.

מט וְהָיָה הַנֶּגַע יְרַקְרַק אוֹ אֲדַמְדָּם, בַּבֶּגֶד אוֹ בָעוֹר אוֹ-בַשְּׁתִי אוֹ-בָעֵרֶב אוֹ בְכָל-כְּלִי-עוֹר–נֶגַע צָרַעַת, הוּא; וְהָרְאָה, אֶת-הַכֹּהֵן. 49
If the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin, it is the plague of leprosy, and shall be shown unto the priest.

נ וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן, אֶת-הַנָּגַע; וְהִסְגִּיר אֶת-הַנֶּגַע, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים. 50
And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up that which hath the plague seven days.

נא וְרָאָה אֶת-הַנֶּגַע בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי, כִּי-פָשָׂה הַנֶּגַע בַּבֶּגֶד אוֹ-בַשְּׁתִי אוֹ-בָעֵרֶב אוֹ בָעוֹר, לְכֹל אֲשֶׁר-יֵעָשֶׂה הָעוֹר, לִמְלָאכָה–צָרַעַת מַמְאֶרֶת הַנֶּגַע, טָמֵא הוּא. 51
And he shall look on the plague on the seventh day:
if the plague be spread in the garment, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in the skin, whatever service skin is used for, the plague is a malignant leprosy:
it is unclean.

נב וְשָׂרַף אֶת-הַבֶּגֶד אוֹ אֶת-הַשְּׁתִי אוֹ אֶת-הָעֵרֶב, בַּצֶּמֶר אוֹ בַפִּשְׁתִּים, אוֹ אֶת-כָּל-כְּלִי הָעוֹר, אֲשֶׁר-יִהְיֶה בוֹ הַנָּגַע: כִּי-צָרַעַת מַמְאֶרֶת הִוא, בָּאֵשׁ תִּשָּׂרֵף. 52
And he shall burn the garment, or the warp, or the woof, whether it be of wool or of linen, or any thing of skin, wherein the plague is;
for it is a malignant leprosy;
it shall be burnt in the fire.

נג וְאִם, יִרְאֶה הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה לֹא-פָשָׂה הַנֶּגַע, בַּבֶּגֶד אוֹ בַשְּׁתִי אוֹ בָעֵרֶב; אוֹ, בְּכָל-כְּלִי-עוֹר. 53
And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not spread in the garment, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin;

נד וְצִוָּה, הַכֹּהֵן, וְכִבְּסוּ, אֵת אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ הַנָּגַע; וְהִסְגִּירוֹ שִׁבְעַת-יָמִים, שֵׁנִית. 54
then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more.

נה וְרָאָה הַכֹּהֵן אַחֲרֵי הֻכַּבֵּס אֶת-הַנֶּגַע, וְהִנֵּה לֹא-הָפַךְ הַנֶּגַע אֶת-עֵינוֹ וְהַנֶּגַע לֹא-פָשָׂה–טָמֵא הוּא, בָּאֵשׁ תִּשְׂרְפֶנּוּ: פְּחֶתֶת הִוא, בְּקָרַחְתּוֹ אוֹ בְגַבַּחְתּוֹ. 55
And the priest shall look, after that the plague is washed;
and, behold, if the plague have not changed its colour, and the plague be not spread, it is unclean;
thou shalt burn it in the fire;
it is a fret, whether the bareness be within or without.

נו וְאִם, רָאָה הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה כֵּהָה הַנֶּגַע, אַחֲרֵי הֻכַּבֵּס אֹתוֹ–וְקָרַע אֹתוֹ, מִן-הַבֶּגֶד אוֹ מִן-הָעוֹר, אוֹ מִן-הַשְּׁתִי, אוֹ מִן-הָעֵרֶב. 56
And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague be dim after the washing thereof, then he shall rend it out of the garment, or out of the skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof.

נז וְאִם-תֵּרָאֶה עוֹד בַּבֶּגֶד אוֹ-בַשְּׁתִי אוֹ-בָעֵרֶב, אוֹ בְכָל-כְּלִי-עוֹר–פֹּרַחַת, הִוא: בָּאֵשׁ תִּשְׂרְפֶנּוּ, אֵת אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ הַנָּגַע. 57
And if it appear still in the garment, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin, it is breaking out, thou shalt burn that wherein the plague is with fire.

נח וְהַבֶּגֶד אוֹ-הַשְּׁתִי אוֹ-הָעֵרֶב אוֹ-כָל-כְּלִי הָעוֹר, אֲשֶׁר תְּכַבֵּס, וְסָר מֵהֶם, הַנָּגַע–וְכֻבַּס שֵׁנִית, וְטָהֵר. 58
And the garment, or the warp, or the woof, or whatsoever thing of skin it be, which thou shalt wash, if the plague be departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean.

נט זֹאת תּוֹרַת נֶגַע-צָרַעַת בֶּגֶד הַצֶּמֶר אוֹ הַפִּשְׁתִּים, אוֹ הַשְּׁתִי אוֹ הָעֵרֶב, אוֹ, כָּל-כְּלִי-עוֹר–לְטַהֲרוֹ, אוֹ לְטַמְּאוֹ. {פ} 59 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of wool or linen, or in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean. {P}

Chapter 14 – א וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה לֵּאמֹר. 1
And The Eternal One spoke unto Moses, saying:

ב זֹאת תִּהְיֶה תּוֹרַת הַמְּצֹרָע, בְּיוֹם טָהֳרָתוֹ: וְהוּבָא, אֶל-הַכֹּהֵן. 2
This shall be the manner of the leper in the day of his cleansing:
he shall be brought unto the priest.

ג וְיָצָא, הַכֹּהֵן, אֶל-מִחוּץ, לַמַּחֲנֶה; וְרָאָה, הַכֹּהֵן, וְהִנֵּה נִרְפָּא נֶגַע-הַצָּרַעַת, מִן-הַצָּרוּעַ. 3
And the priest shall go forth out of the camp;
and the priest shall look, and, behold, if the plague of leprosy be healed in the leper;

ד וְצִוָּה, הַכֹּהֵן, וְלָקַח לַמִּטַּהֵר שְׁתֵּי-צִפֳּרִים חַיּוֹת, טְהֹרוֹת; וְעֵץ אֶרֶז, וּשְׁנִי תוֹלַעַת וְאֵזֹב. 4
then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two living clean birds, and cedar-wood, and scarlet, and hyssop.

ה וְצִוָּה, הַכֹּהֵן, וְשָׁחַט, אֶת-הַצִּפּוֹר הָאֶחָת–אֶל-כְּלִי-חֶרֶשׂ, עַל-מַיִם חַיִּים. 5
And the priest shall command to kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water.

ו אֶת-הַצִּפֹּר הַחַיָּה יִקַּח אֹתָהּ, וְאֶת-עֵץ הָאֶרֶז וְאֶת-שְׁנִי הַתּוֹלַעַת וְאֶת-הָאֵזֹב; וְטָבַל אוֹתָם וְאֵת הַצִּפֹּר הַחַיָּה, בְּדַם הַצִּפֹּר הַשְּׁחֻטָה, עַל, הַמַּיִם הַחַיִּים. 6
As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar-wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water.

ז וְהִזָּה, עַל הַמִּטַּהֵר מִן-הַצָּרַעַת–שֶׁבַע פְּעָמִים; וְטִהֲרוֹ, וְשִׁלַּח אֶת-הַצִּפֹּר הַחַיָּה עַל-פְּנֵי הַשָּׂדֶה. 7
And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let go the living bird into the open field.

ח וְכִבֶּס הַמִּטַּהֵר אֶת-בְּגָדָיו וְגִלַּח אֶת-כָּל-שְׂעָרוֹ, וְרָחַץ בַּמַּיִם וְטָהֵר, וְאַחַר, יָבוֹא אֶל-הַמַּחֲנֶה; וְיָשַׁב מִחוּץ לְאָהֳלוֹ, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים. 8
And he that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave off all his hair, and bathe himself in water, and he shall be clean;
and after that he may come into the camp, but shall dwell outside his tent seven days.

ט וְהָיָה בַיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי יְגַלַּח אֶת-כָּל-שְׂעָרוֹ, אֶת-רֹאשׁוֹ וְאֶת-זְקָנוֹ וְאֵת גַּבֹּת עֵינָיו, וְאֶת-כָּל-שְׂעָרוֹ, יְגַלֵּחַ; וְכִבֶּס אֶת-בְּגָדָיו, וְרָחַץ אֶת-בְּשָׂרוֹ בַּמַּיִם–וְטָהֵר. 9
And it shall be on the seventh day, that he shall shave all his hair off his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair he shall shave off;
and he shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and he shall be clean.

י וּבַיּוֹם הַשְּׁמִינִי, יִקַּח שְׁנֵי-כְבָשִׂים תְּמִימִם, וְכַבְשָׂה אַחַת בַּת-שְׁנָתָהּ, תְּמִימָה; וּשְׁלֹשָׁה עֶשְׂרֹנִים, סֹלֶת מִנְחָה בְּלוּלָה בַשֶּׁמֶן, וְלֹג אֶחָד, שָׁמֶן. 10
And on the eighth day he shall take two he-lambs without blemish, and one ewe-lamb of the first year without blemish, and three tenth parts of an ephah of fine flour for a meal-offering, mingled with oil, and one log of oil.

יא וְהֶעֱמִיד הַכֹּהֵן הַמְטַהֵר, אֵת הָאִישׁ הַמִּטַּהֵר–וְאֹתָם: לִפְנֵי יְהוָה, פֶּתַח אֹהֶל מוֹעֵד. 11
And the priest that cleanseth him shall set the man that is to be cleansed, and those things, before The Eternal One, at the door of the tent of meeting.

יב וְלָקַח הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַכֶּבֶשׂ הָאֶחָד, וְהִקְרִיב אֹתוֹ לְאָשָׁם–וְאֶת-לֹג הַשָּׁמֶן; וְהֵנִיף אֹתָם תְּנוּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 12
And the priest shall take one of the he-lambs, and offer him for a guilt-offering, and the log of oil, and wave them for a wave-offering before The Eternal One.

יג וְשָׁחַט אֶת-הַכֶּבֶשׂ, בִּמְקוֹם אֲשֶׁר יִשְׁחַט אֶת-הַחַטָּאת וְאֶת-הָעֹלָה–בִּמְקוֹם הַקֹּדֶשׁ: כִּי כַּחַטָּאת הָאָשָׁם הוּא, לַכֹּהֵן–קֹדֶשׁ קָדָשִׁים, הוּא. 13
And he shall kill the he-lamb in the place where they kill the sin-offering and the burnt-offering, in the place of the sanctuary;
for as the sin-offering is the priest’s, so is the guilt-offering;
it is most holy.

יד וְלָקַח הַכֹּהֵן, מִדַּם הָאָשָׁם, וְנָתַן הַכֹּהֵן, עַל-תְּנוּךְ אֹזֶן הַמִּטַּהֵר הַיְמָנִית; וְעַל-בֹּהֶן יָדוֹ הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן רַגְלוֹ הַיְמָנִית. 14 And the priest shall take of the blood of the guilt-offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.

טו וְלָקַח הַכֹּהֵן, מִלֹּג הַשָּׁמֶן; וְיָצַק עַל-כַּף הַכֹּהֵן, הַשְּׂמָאלִית. 15
And the priest shall take of the log of oil, and pour it into the palm of his own left hand.

טז וְטָבַל הַכֹּהֵן, אֶת-אֶצְבָּעוֹ הַיְמָנִית, מִן-הַשֶּׁמֶן, אֲשֶׁר עַל-כַּפּוֹ הַשְּׂמָאלִית; וְהִזָּה מִן-הַשֶּׁמֶן בְּאֶצְבָּעוֹ שֶׁבַע פְּעָמִים, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 16
And the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left hand, and shall sprinkle of the oil with his finger seven times before The Eternal One.

יז וּמִיֶּתֶר הַשֶּׁמֶן אֲשֶׁר עַל-כַּפּוֹ, יִתֵּן הַכֹּהֵן עַל-תְּנוּךְ אֹזֶן הַמִּטַּהֵר הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן יָדוֹ הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן רַגְלוֹ הַיְמָנִית–עַל, דַּם הָאָשָׁם. 17
And of the rest of the oil that is in his hand shall the priest put upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the blood of the guilt-offering.

יח וְהַנּוֹתָר, בַּשֶּׁמֶן אֲשֶׁר עַל-כַּף הַכֹּהֵן, יִתֵּן, עַל-רֹאשׁ הַמִּטַּהֵר; וְכִפֶּר עָלָיו הַכֹּהֵן, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 18
And the rest of the oil that is in the priest’s hand he shall put upon the head of him that is to be cleansed;
and the priest shall make atonement for him before The Eternal One.

יט וְעָשָׂה הַכֹּהֵן, אֶת-הַחַטָּאת, וְכִפֶּר, עַל-הַמִּטַּהֵר מִטֻּמְאָתוֹ; וְאַחַר, יִשְׁחַט אֶת-הָעֹלָה. 19
And the priest shall offer the sin-offering, and make atonement for him that is to be cleansed because of his uncleanness;
and afterward he shall kill the burnt-offering.

כ וְהֶעֱלָה הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הָעֹלָה וְאֶת-הַמִּנְחָה, הַמִּזְבֵּחָה; וְכִפֶּר עָלָיו הַכֹּהֵן, וְטָהֵר. {ס} 20
And the priest shall offer the burnt-offering and the meal-offering upon the altar;
and the priest shall make atonement for him, and he shall be clean. {S}

כא וְאִם-דַּל הוּא, וְאֵין יָדוֹ מַשֶּׂגֶת–וְלָקַח כֶּבֶשׂ אֶחָד אָשָׁם לִתְנוּפָה, לְכַפֵּר עָלָיו; וְעִשָּׂרוֹן סֹלֶת אֶחָד בָּלוּל בַּשֶּׁמֶן, לְמִנְחָה–וְלֹג שָׁמֶן. 21
And if he be poor, and his means suffice not, then he shall take one he-lamb for a guilt-offering to be waved, to make atonement for him, and one tenth part of an ephah of fine flour mingled with oil for a meal-offering, and a log of oil;

כב וּשְׁתֵּי תֹרִים, אוֹ שְׁנֵי בְּנֵי יוֹנָה, אֲשֶׁר תַּשִּׂיג, יָדוֹ; וְהָיָה אֶחָד חַטָּאת, וְהָאֶחָד עֹלָה. 22
and two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, such as his means suffice for;
and the one shall be a sin-offering, and the other a burnt-offering.

כג וְהֵבִיא אֹתָם בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁמִינִי, לְטָהֳרָתוֹ–אֶל-הַכֹּהֵן: אֶל-פֶּתַח אֹהֶל-מוֹעֵד, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 23
And on the eighth day he shall bring them for his cleansing unto the priest, unto the door of the tent of meeting, before The Eternal One.

כד וְלָקַח הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-כֶּבֶשׂ הָאָשָׁם, וְאֶת-לֹג הַשָּׁמֶן; וְהֵנִיף אֹתָם הַכֹּהֵן תְּנוּפָה, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 24
And the priest shall take the lamb of the guilt-offering, and the log of oil, and the priest shall wave them for a wave-offering before The Eternal One.

כה וְשָׁחַט, אֶת-כֶּבֶשׂ הָאָשָׁם, וְלָקַח הַכֹּהֵן מִדַּם הָאָשָׁם, וְנָתַן עַל-תְּנוּךְ אֹזֶן-הַמִּטַּהֵר הַיְמָנִית; וְעַל-בֹּהֶן יָדוֹ הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן רַגְלוֹ הַיְמָנִית. 25
And he shall kill the lamb of the guilt-offering, and the priest shall take of the blood of the guilt-offering, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.

כו וּמִן-הַשֶּׁמֶן, יִצֹק הַכֹּהֵן, עַל-כַּף הַכֹּהֵן, הַשְּׂמָאלִית. 26
And the priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his own left hand.

כז וְהִזָּה הַכֹּהֵן, בְּאֶצְבָּעוֹ הַיְמָנִית, מִן-הַשֶּׁמֶן, אֲשֶׁר עַל-כַּפּוֹ הַשְּׂמָאלִית–שֶׁבַע פְּעָמִים, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 27
And the priest shall sprinkle with his right finger some of the oil that is in his left hand seven times before The Eternal One.

כח וְנָתַן הַכֹּהֵן מִן-הַשֶּׁמֶן אֲשֶׁר עַל-כַּפּוֹ, עַל-תְּנוּךְ אֹזֶן הַמִּטַּהֵר הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן יָדוֹ הַיְמָנִית, וְעַל-בֹּהֶן רַגְלוֹ הַיְמָנִית–עַל-מְקוֹם, דַּם הָאָשָׁם. 28
And the priest shall put of the oil that is in his hand upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the place of the blood of the guilt-offering.

כט וְהַנּוֹתָר, מִן-הַשֶּׁמֶן אֲשֶׁר עַל-כַּף הַכֹּהֵן, יִתֵּן, עַל-רֹאשׁ הַמִּטַּהֵר–לְכַפֵּר עָלָיו, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 29
And the rest of the oil that is in the priest’s hand he shall put upon the head of him that is to be cleansed, to make atonement for him before The Eternal One.

ל וְעָשָׂה אֶת-הָאֶחָד מִן-הַתֹּרִים, אוֹ מִן-בְּנֵי הַיּוֹנָה, מֵאֲשֶׁר תַּשִּׂיג, יָדוֹ. 30
And he shall offer one of the turtle-doves, or of the young pigeons, such as his means suffice for;

לא אֵת אֲשֶׁר-תַּשִּׂיג יָדוֹ, אֶת-הָאֶחָד חַטָּאת וְאֶת-הָאֶחָד עֹלָה–עַל-הַמִּנְחָה; וְכִפֶּר הַכֹּהֵן עַל הַמִּטַּהֵר, לִפְנֵי יְהוָה. 31 even such as his means suffice for, the one for a sin-offering, and the other for a burnt-offering, with the meal-offering;
and the priest shall make atonement for him that is to be cleansed before The Eternal One.

לב זֹאת תּוֹרַת, אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ נֶגַע צָרָעַת, אֲשֶׁר לֹא-תַשִּׂיג יָדוֹ, בְּטָהֳרָתוֹ. {פ} 32
This is the law of him in whom is the plague of leprosy, whose means suffice not for that which pertaineth to his cleansing. {P}

לג וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה, אֶל-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל-אַהֲרֹן לֵאמֹר. 33
And The Eternal One spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying:

לד כִּי תָבֹאוּ אֶל-אֶרֶץ כְּנַעַן, אֲשֶׁר אֲנִי נֹתֵן לָכֶם לַאֲחֻזָּה; וְנָתַתִּי נֶגַע צָרַעַת, בְּבֵית אֶרֶץ אֲחֻזַּתְכֶם. 34
When ye are come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession;

לה וּבָא אֲשֶׁר-לוֹ הַבַּיִת, וְהִגִּיד לַכֹּהֵן לֵאמֹר: כְּנֶגַע, נִרְאָה לִי בַּבָּיִת. 35
then he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest, saying:
‘There seemeth to me to be as it were a plague in the house.’

לו וְצִוָּה הַכֹּהֵן וּפִנּוּ אֶת-הַבַּיִת, בְּטֶרֶם יָבֹא הַכֹּהֵן לִרְאוֹת אֶת-הַנֶּגַע, וְלֹא יִטְמָא, כָּל-אֲשֶׁר בַּבָּיִת; וְאַחַר כֵּן יָבֹא הַכֹּהֵן, לִרְאוֹת אֶת-הַבָּיִת. 36
And the priest shall command that they empty the house, before the priest go in to see the plague, that all that is in the house be not made unclean;
and afterward the priest shall go in to see the house.

לז וְרָאָה אֶת-הַנֶּגַע, וְהִנֵּה הַנֶּגַע בְּקִירֹת הַבַּיִת, שְׁקַעֲרוּרֹת יְרַקְרַקֹּת, אוֹ אֲדַמְדַּמֹּת; וּמַרְאֵיהֶן שָׁפָל, מִן-הַקִּיר. 37
And he shall look on the plague, and, behold, if the plague be in the walls of the house with hollow streaks, greenish or reddish, and the appearance thereof be lower than the wall;

לח וְיָצָא הַכֹּהֵן מִן-הַבַּיִת, אֶל-פֶּתַח הַבָּיִת; וְהִסְגִּיר אֶת-הַבַּיִת, שִׁבְעַת יָמִים. 38
then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house, and shut up the house seven days.

לט וְשָׁב הַכֹּהֵן, בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי; וְרָאָה, וְהִנֵּה פָּשָׂה הַנֶּגַע בְּקִירֹת הַבָּיִת. 39
And the priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall look;
and, behold, if the plague be spread in the walls of the house;

מ וְצִוָּה, הַכֹּהֵן, וְחִלְּצוּ אֶת-הָאֲבָנִים, אֲשֶׁר בָּהֵן הַנָּגַע; וְהִשְׁלִיכוּ אֶתְהֶן אֶל-מִחוּץ לָעִיר, אֶל-מָקוֹם טָמֵא. 40
then the priest shall command that they take out the stones in which the plague is, and cast them into an unclean place without the city.

מא וְאֶת-הַבַּיִת יַקְצִעַ מִבַּיִת, סָבִיב; וְשָׁפְכוּ, אֶת-הֶעָפָר אֲשֶׁר הִקְצוּ, אֶל-מִחוּץ לָעִיר, אֶל-מָקוֹם טָמֵא. 41
And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and they shall pour out the mortar that they scrape off without the city into an unclean place.

מב וְלָקְחוּ אֲבָנִים אֲחֵרוֹת, וְהֵבִיאוּ אֶל-תַּחַת הָאֲבָנִים; וְעָפָר אַחֵר יִקַּח, וְטָח אֶת-הַבָּיִת. 42
And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of those stones;
and he shall take other mortar, and shall plaster the house.

מג וְאִם-יָשׁוּב הַנֶּגַע וּפָרַח בַּבַּיִת, אַחַר חִלֵּץ אֶת-הָאֲבָנִים, וְאַחֲרֵי הִקְצוֹת אֶת-הַבַּיִת, וְאַחֲרֵי הִטּוֹחַ. 43
And if the plague come again, and break out in the house, after that the stones have been taken out, and after the house hath been scraped, and after it is plastered;

מד וּבָא, הַכֹּהֵן, וְרָאָה, וְהִנֵּה פָּשָׂה הַנֶּגַע בַּבָּיִת–צָרַעַת מַמְאֶרֶת הִוא בַּבַּיִת, טָמֵא הוּא. 44
then the priest shall come in and look;
and, behold, if the plague be spread in the house, it is a malignant leprosy in the house:
it is unclean.

מה וְנָתַץ אֶת-הַבַּיִת, אֶת-אֲבָנָיו וְאֶת-עֵצָיו, וְאֵת, כָּל-עֲפַר הַבָּיִת; וְהוֹצִיא אֶל-מִחוּץ לָעִיר, אֶל-מָקוֹם טָמֵא. 45
And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber thereof, and all the mortar of the house;
and he shall carry them forth out of the city into an unclean place.

מו וְהַבָּא, אֶל-הַבַּיִת, כָּל-יְמֵי, הִסְגִּיר אֹתוֹ–יִטְמָא, עַד-הָעָרֶב. 46
Moreover he that goeth into the house all the while that it is shut up shall be unclean until the even.

מז וְהַשֹּׁכֵב בַּבַּיִת, יְכַבֵּס אֶת-בְּגָדָיו; וְהָאֹכֵל בַּבַּיִת, יְכַבֵּס אֶת-בְּגָדָיו. 47
And he that lieth in the house shall wash his clothes;
and he that eateth in the house shall wash his clothes.

מח וְאִם-בֹּא יָבֹא הַכֹּהֵן, וְרָאָה וְהִנֵּה לֹא-פָשָׂה הַנֶּגַע בַּבַּיִת, אַחֲרֵי, הִטֹּחַ אֶת-הַבָּיִת–וְטִהַר הַכֹּהֵן אֶת-הַבַּיִת, כִּי נִרְפָּא הַנָּגַע. 48
And if the priest shall come in, and look, and, behold, the plague hath not spread in the house, after the house was plastered;
then the priest shall pronounce the house clean, because the plague is healed.

מט וְלָקַח לְחַטֵּא אֶת-הַבַּיִת, שְׁתֵּי צִפֳּרִים, וְעֵץ אֶרֶז, וּשְׁנִי תוֹלַעַת וְאֵזֹב. 49
And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar-wood, and scarlet, and hyssop.

נ וְשָׁחַט, אֶת-הַצִּפֹּר הָאֶחָת, אֶל-כְּלִי-חֶרֶשׂ, עַל-מַיִם חַיִּים. 50
And he shall kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running water.

נא וְלָקַח אֶת-עֵץ-הָאֶרֶז וְאֶת-הָאֵזֹב וְאֵת שְׁנִי הַתּוֹלַעַת, וְאֵת הַצִּפֹּר הַחַיָּה, וְטָבַל אֹתָם בְּדַם הַצִּפֹּר הַשְּׁחוּטָה, וּבַמַּיִם הַחַיִּים; וְהִזָּה אֶל-הַבַּיִת, שֶׁבַע פְּעָמִים. 51
And he shall take the cedar-wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird, and in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times.

נב וְחִטֵּא אֶת-הַבַּיִת–בְּדַם הַצִּפּוֹר, וּבַמַּיִם הַחַיִּים; וּבַצִּפֹּר הַחַיָּה, וּבְעֵץ הָאֶרֶז וּבָאֵזֹב–וּבִשְׁנִי הַתּוֹלָעַת. 52
And he shall cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, and with the running water, and with the living bird, and with the cedar-wood, and with the hyssop, and with the scarlet.

נג וְשִׁלַּח אֶת-הַצִּפֹּר הַחַיָּה, אֶל-מִחוּץ לָעִיר–אֶל-פְּנֵי הַשָּׂדֶה; וְכִפֶּר עַל-הַבַּיִת, וְטָהֵר. 53
But he shall let go the living bird out of the city into the open field;
so shall he make atonement for the house;
and it shall be clean.

נד זֹאת, הַתּוֹרָה, לְכָל-נֶגַע הַצָּרַעַת, וְלַנָּתֶק. 54
This is the law for all manner of plague of leprosy, and for a scall;

נה וּלְצָרַעַת הַבֶּגֶד, וְלַבָּיִת. 55
and for the leprosy of a garment, and for a house;

נו וְלַשְׂאֵת וְלַסַּפַּחַת, וְלַבֶּהָרֶת. 56
and for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot;

נז לְהוֹרֹת, בְּיוֹם הַטָּמֵא וּבְיוֹם הַטָּהֹר; זֹאת תּוֹרַת, הַצָּרָעַת. {פ} 57
to teach when it is unclean, and when it is clean;
this is the law of leprosy. {P}
