Bible: Lev 13:18-27

A Boil on the Skin

13:18When someone’s body has a boil on its skin 1  and it heals, 13:19 and in the place of the boil there is a white swelling or a reddish white bright spot, he must show himself to the priest. 2  13:20 The priest will then examine it, 3  and if 4  it appears to be deeper than the skin 5  and its hair has turned white, then the priest is to pronounce the person unclean. 6  It is a diseased infection that has broken out in the boil. 7  13:21 If, however, 8  the priest examines it, and 9  there is no white hair in it, it is not deeper than the skin, and it has faded, then the priest is to quarantine him for seven days. 10  13:22 If 11  it is spreading further 12  on the skin, then the priest is to pronounce him unclean. 13  It is an infection. 13:23 But if the bright spot stays in its place and has not spread, 14  it is the scar of the boil, so the priest is to pronounce him clean. 15 

A Burn on the Skin

13:24When a body has a burn on its skin 16  and the raw area of the burn becomes a reddish white or white bright spot, 13:25 the priest must examine it, 17  and if 18  the hair has turned white in the bright spot and it appears to be deeper than the skin, 19  it is a disease that has broken out in the burn. 20  The priest is to pronounce the person unclean. 21  It is a diseased infection. 22  13:26 If, however, 23  the priest examines it and 24  there is no white hair in the bright spot, it is not deeper than the skin, 25  and it has faded, then the priest is to quarantine him for seven days. 26  13:27 The priest must then examine it on the seventh day, and if it is spreading further 27  on the skin, then the priest is to pronounce him unclean. It is a diseased infection. 28
