Bible: Leviticus 15:1-12

Male Bodily Discharges

15:1 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron: 15:2 Speak to the Israelites and tell them, ‘When any man 1  has a discharge 2  from his body, 3  his discharge is unclean. 15:3 Now this is his uncleanness in regard to his discharge 4 whether his body secretes his discharge or blocks his discharge, he is unclean. All the days that his body has a discharge or his body blocks his discharge, 5  this is his uncleanness. 6 

15:4‘Any bed the man with a discharge lies on will be unclean, 7  and any furniture he sits on will be unclean. 8  15:5 Anyone who touches his bed 9  must wash his clothes, bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. 10  15:6 The one who sits on the furniture the man with a discharge sits on must wash his clothes, bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. 15:7 The one who touches the body 11  of the man with a discharge must wash his clothes, bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. 15:8 If the man with a discharge spits on a person who is ceremonially clean, 12  that person must wash his clothes, bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. 15:9 Any means of riding 13  the man with a discharge rides on will be unclean. 15:10 Anyone who touches anything that was under him 14  will be unclean until evening, and the one who carries those items 15  must wash his clothes, bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. 15:11 Anyone whom the man with the discharge touches without having rinsed his hands in water 16  must wash his clothes, bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. 15:12 A clay vessel 17  which the man with the discharge touches must be broken, and any wooden utensil must be rinsed in water.
