Then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be in sight deeper than the  skin; and there be in it a  yellow thin hair; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry scall, even a leprosy upon the head or beard.
And if the priest look on the plague of the scall, and, behold, it be not in sight deeper than the  skin, and that there is no  black hair in it; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague of the scall seven days:

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:
And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall: and, behold, if the scall be not spread in the  skin, nor be in sight deeper than the  skin; then the priest shall pronounce him clean: and he shall wash his  clothes, and be clean.
But if the scall spread much in the  skin after his cleansing;
Then the priest shall look on him: and, behold, if the scall be spread in the  skin, the priest shall not seek for  yellow hair; he is unclean.

Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the rising of the sore be  white reddish in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, as the leprosy appeareth in the  skin of the  flesh;

And he shall look on the plague on the seventh day: if the plague be spread in the  garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in a  skin, or in any work that is made of  skin; the plague is a fretting leprosy; it is unclean.
He shall therefore  burn that  garment, whether warp or woof, in woolen or in  linen, or any thing of  skin, wherein the plague is: for it is a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the  fire.
And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not spread in the  garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of  skin;
Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more:
And the priest shall look on the plague, after that it is washed: and, behold, if the plague have not changed his color, and the plague be not spread; it is unclean; thou shalt  burn it in the  fire; it is fret inward, whether it be bare within or without.

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:

And there went up some of the children of Israel, and of the priests, and the Levites, and the singers, and the porters, and the Nethinims, unto Jerusalem, in the seventh year of Artaxerxes the king.   Ezra 7:5-7 


Now this is the copy of the letter that the king Artaxerxes gave unto Ezra the priest, the scribe, even a scribe of the words of the commandments of the LORD, and of his statutes to Israel.
Artaxerxes, king of kings, unto Ezra the priest, a scribe of the law of the  God of  heaven, perfect peace, and at such a time.
I make a decree, that all they of the people of Israel, and of his priests and Levites, in my realm, which are minded of their own freewill to go up to Jerusalem, go with thee.   Ezra 7:11-13 


And all the  silver and  gold that thou canst find in all the province of Babylon, with the freewill offering of the people, and of the priests, offering willingly for the house of their  God which is in Jerusalem:
That thou mayest buy speedily with this money bullocks, rams, lambs, with their meat offerings and their drink offerings, and offer them upon the altar of the house of your  God which is in Jerusalem.   Ezra 7:16, 17 


And I, even I Artaxerxes the king, do make a decree to all the treasurers which are beyond the  river, that whatsoever Ezra the priest, the scribe of the law of the  God of  heaven, shall require of you, it be done speedily,
Unto an hundred talents of  silver, and to an hundred measures of  wheat, and to an hundred baths of wine, and to an hundred baths of oil, and salt without prescribing how much.
Whatsoever is commanded by the  God of  heaven, let it be diligently done for the house of the  God of  heaven: for why should there be wrath against the realm of the king and his sons?
Also we certify you, that touching any of the priests and Levites, singers, porters, Nethinims, or ministers of this house of  God, it shall not be lawful to impose toll, tribute, or custom, upon them.   Ezra 7:21-24 


And I gathered them together to the  river that runneth to Ahava; and there abode we in tents three days: and I viewed the people, and the priests, and found there none of the sons of Levi.   Ezra 8:15 


Then I separated twelve of the chief of the priests, Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brethren with them,
And weighed unto them the  silver, and the  gold, and the vessels, even the offering of the house of our  God, which the king, and his counsellors, and his lords, and all Israel there present, had offered:
I even weighed unto their hand six hundred and fifty talents of  silver, and  silver vessels an hundred talents, and of  gold an hundred talents;
Also twenty basons of  gold, of a thousand drams; and two vessels of fine  copper, precious as  gold.
And I said unto them, Ye are holy unto the LORD; the vessels are holy also; and the  silver and the  gold are a freewill offering unto the LORD  God of your fathers.
Watch ye, and keep them, until ye weigh them before the chief of the priests and the Levites, and chief of the fathers of Israel, at Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD.
So took the priests and the Levites the weight of the  silver, and the  gold, and the vessels, to bring them to Jerusalem unto the house of our  God.   Ezra 8:24-30 


Now on the fourth day was the  silver and the  gold and the vessels weighed in the house of our  God by the hand of Meremoth the son of Uriah the priest; and with him was Eleazar the son of Phinehas; and with them was Jozabad the son of Jeshua, and Noadiah the son of Binnui, Levites;
By number and by weight of every one: and all the weight was written at that time.   Ezra 8:33, 34 


Now when these things were done, the princes came to me, saying, The people of Israel, and the priests, and the Levites, have not separated themselves from the people of the lands, doing according to their abominations, even of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, the Egyptians, and the Amorites.   Ezra 9:1 


Since the days of our fathers have we been in a great trespass unto this day; and for our iniquities have we, our kings, and our priests, been delivered into the hand of the kings of the lands, to the  sword, to captivity, and to a spoil, and to confusion of face, as it is this day.   Ezra 9:7 


Then arose Ezra, and made the chief priests, the Levites, and all Israel, to swear that they should do according to this word. And they sware.   Ezra 10:5 


And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel.   Ezra 10:10 


And the children of the captivity did so. And Ezra the priest, with certain chief of the fathers, after the house of their fathers, and all of them by their names, were separated, and sat down in the first day of the tenth month to examine the matter.
And they made an end with all the men that had taken strange wives by the first day of the first month.
And among the sons of the priests there were found that had taken strange wives: namely, of the sons of Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren; Maaseiah, and Eliezer, and Jarib, and Gedaliah.   Ezra 10:16-18 


And the rulers knew not whither I went, or what I did; neither had I as yet told it to the Jews, nor to the priests, nor to the nobles, nor to the rulers, nor to the rest that did the work.   Nehemiah 2:16 


Then Eliashib the high priest rose up with his brethren the priests, and they builded the sheep gate; they sanctified it, and set up the doors of it; even unto the tower of Meah they sanctified it, unto the tower of Hananeel.   Nehemiah 3:1 


After him Baruch the son of Zabbai earnestly repaired the other piece, from the turning of the wall unto the door of the house of Eliashib the high priest.
After him repaired Meremoth the son of Urijah the son of Koz another piece, from the door of the house of Eliashib even to the end of the house of Eliashib.
And after him repaired the priests, the men of the plain.   Nehemiah 3:20-22 


From above the  horse gate repaired the priests, every one over against his house.   Nehemiah 3:28 


Then said they, We will restore them, and will require nothing of them; so will we do as thou sayest. Then I called the priests, and took an oath of them, that they should do according to this promise.   Nehemiah 5:12 


The priests: the children of Jedaiah, of the house of Jeshua, nine hundred seventy and three.   Nehemiah 7:39 


And of the priests: the children of Habaiah, the children of Koz, the children of Barzillai, which took one of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite to wife, and was called after their name.
These sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found: therefore were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood.
And the Tirshatha said unto them, that they should not eat of the most holy things, till there stood up a priest with Urim and Thummim.   Nehemiah 7:63-65 


And some of the chief of the fathers gave unto the work. The Tirshatha gave to the treasure a thousand drams of  gold, fifty basons, five hundred and thirty priests'  garments.
And some of the chief of the fathers gave to the treasure of the work twenty thousand drams of  gold, and two thousand and two hundred pound of  silver.
And that which the rest of the people gave was twenty thousand drams of  gold, and two thousand pound of  silver, and threescore and seven priests'  garments.
So the priests, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the people, and the Nethinims, and all Israel, dwelt in their cities; and when the seventh month came, the children of Israel were in their cities.   Nehemiah 7:70-73 


And Ezra the priest brought the law before the congregation both of men and women, and all that could hear with understanding, upon the first day of the seventh month.   Nehemiah 8:2 


And Nehemiah, which is the Tirshatha, and Ezra the priest the scribe, and the Levites that taught the people, said unto all the people, This day is holy unto the LORD your  God; mourn not, nor weep. For all the people wept, when they heard the words of the law.   Nehemiah 8:9 


And on the second day were gathered together the chief of the fathers of all the people, the priests, and the Levites, unto Ezra the scribe, even to understand the words of the law.   Nehemiah 8:13 


Now therefore, our  God, the great, the mighty, and the terrible  God, who keepest covenant and mercy, let not all the trouble seem little before thee, that hath come upon us, on our kings, on our princes, and on our priests, and on our prophets, and on our fathers, and on all thy people, since the time of the kings of Assyria unto this day.
Howbeit thou art just in all that is brought upon us; for thou hast done right, but we have done wickedly:
Neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept thy law, nor hearkened unto thy commandments and thy testimonies, wherewith thou didst testify against them.   Nehemiah 9:32-34 


And because of all this we make a sure covenant, and write it; and our princes, Levites, and priests, seal unto it.   Nehemiah 9:38 


Maaziah, Bilgai, Shemaiah: these were the priests.   Nehemiah 10:8 


And the rest of the people, the priests, the Levites, the porters, the singers, the Nethinims, and all they that had separated themselves from the people of the lands unto the law of  God, their wives, their sons, and their daughters, every one having knowledge, and having understanding;
They clave to their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse, and into an oath, to walk in God's law, which was given by Moses the servant of  God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the LORD our Lord, and his judgments and his statutes;
And that we would not give our daughters unto the people of the land, not take their daughters for our sons:
And if the people of the land bring ware or any victuals on the sabbath day to sell, that we would not buy it of them on the sabbath, or on the holy day: and that we would leave the seventh year, and the exaction of every debt.   Nehemiah 10:28-31 


And we cast the lots among the priests, the Levites, and the people, for the  wood offering, to bring it into the house of our  God, after the houses of our fathers, at times appointed year by year, to  burn upon the altar of the LORD our  God, as it is written in the law:
And to bring the firstfruits of our ground, and the firstfruits of all fruit of all  trees, year by year, unto the house of the LORD:
Also the firstborn of our sons, and of our cattle, as it is written in the law, and the firstlings of our herds and of our flocks, to bring to the house of our  God, unto the priests that minister in the house of our  God:
And that we should bring the firstfruits of our dough, and our offerings, and the fruit of all manner of  trees, of wine and of oil, unto the priests, to the chambers of the house of our  God; and the tithes of our ground unto the Levites, that the same Levites might have the tithes in all the cities of our tillage.
And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites, when the Levites take tithes: and the Levites shall bring up the tithe of the tithes unto the house of our  God, to the chambers, into the treasure house.
For the children of Israel and the children of Levi shall bring the offering of the  corn, of the new wine, and the oil, unto the chambers, where are the vessels of the sanctuary, and the priests that minister, and the porters, and the singers: and we will not forsake the house of our  God.   Nehemiah 10:34-39 


Now these are the chief of the province that dwelt in Jerusalem: but in the cities of Judah dwelt every one in his possession in their cities, to wit, Israel, the priests, and the Levites, and the Nethinims, and the children of Solomon's servants.   Nehemiah 11:3

And Maaseiah, and Shemaiah, and Eleazar, and Uzzi, and Jehohanan, and Malchijah, and Elam, and Ezer. And the singers sang loud, with Jezrahiah their overseer.
Also that day they offered great sacrifices, and rejoiced: for  God had made them rejoice with great joy: the wives also and the children rejoiced: so that the joy of Jerusalem was heard even afar off.
And at that time were some appointed over the chambers for the treasures, for the offerings, for the firstfruits, and for the tithes, to gather into them out of the  fields of the cities the portions of the law for the priests and Levites: for Judah rejoiced for the priests and for the Levites that waited.   Nehemiah 12:41-44 


And before this, Eliashib the priest, having the oversight of the chamber of the house of our  God, was allied unto Tobiah:
And he had prepared for him a great chamber, where aforetime they laid the meat offerings, the frankincense, and the vessels, and the tithes of the  corn, the new wine, and the oil, which was commanded to be given to the Levites, and the singers, and the porters; and the offerings of the priests.   Nehemiah 13:4, 5

And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not.
One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the  garden with him?
Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.   John 18:22-27 


Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?
Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.   John 18:35, 36 


When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.   John 19:6

Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation,
And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.   Acts 5:17, 18

Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow.   Acts 5:24

But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests?
But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.   Acts 9:21, 22

About whom, when I was at Jerusalem, the chief priests and the elders of the Jews informed me, desiring to have judgment against him.   Acts 25:15 


Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them.

Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.   Hebrews 3:1, 2 


Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the  heavens, Jesus the Son of  God, let us hold fast our profession.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.   Hebrews 4:14, 15 


For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to  God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:
Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.   Hebrews 5:1, 2 


So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.
As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.   Hebrews 5:5, 6 


Called of  God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.   Hebrews 5:10 


Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.   Hebrews 6:20 


For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high  God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of  God; abideth a priest continually.
Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:
But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.   Hebrews 7:1-6 


If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.   Hebrews 7:11-17 


And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest:
(For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)
By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:
But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto  God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the  heavens;
Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.   Hebrews 7:20-28 


Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the  heavens;
A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.
For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law:
Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of  God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.   Hebrews 8:1-5 


Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of  God.
But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without  blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:
The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;
Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.
But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;
Neither by the  blood of goats and calves, but by his own  blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.   Hebrews 9:6-12 


Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with  blood of others;
For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.   Hebrews 9:25, 26 


And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of  God;
From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.   Hebrews 10:11-13 


And having an high priest over the house of  God;
Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an  evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure  water.   Hebrews 10:21, 22 


For the bodies of those beasts, whose  blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.   Hebrews 13:11 


Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to  God by Jesus Christ.   1 Peter 2:5 


But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of  God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.   1 Peter 2:9, 10 


And hath made us kings and priests unto  God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.   Revelation 1:6 


And hast made us unto our  God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.   Revelation 5:10 


Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of  God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.   Revelation 20:6
