When a man shall have in the  skin of his  flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the  skin of his  flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:

If the bright spot be  white in the  skin of his  flesh, and in sight 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:
And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread not in the  skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:
And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague be somewhat dark, and the plague spread not in the  skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean: it is but a scab: and he shall wash his  clothes, and be clean.
But if the scab spread much abroad in the  skin, after that he hath been seen of the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen of the priest again.
And if the priest see that, behold, the scab spreadeth in the  skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a leprosy.
When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought unto the priest;
And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the rising be  white in the  skin, and it have turned the hair  white, and there be quick raw  flesh in the rising;
It is an old leprosy in the  skin of his  flesh, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not shut him up: for he is unclean.
And if a 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 foot, wheresoever the priest looketh;
Then the priest shall consider: 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.   Leviticus 13:2-13 


The  flesh also, in which, even in the  skin thereof, was a boil, and is healed,
And in the place of the boil there be a  white rising, or a bright spot,  white, and somewhat reddish, and it be showed to the priest;
And if, when the priest seeth it, behold, it be in sight lower than the  skin, and the hair thereof be turned  white; the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the boil.
But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no  white hairs therein, and if it be not lower than the  skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

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 other  skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:
And the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: and if it be spread much abroad in the  skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.
And if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not in the  skin, but it be somewhat dark; it is a rising of the burning, and the priest shall pronounce him clean: for it is an inflammation of the burning.
If a man or woman have a plague upon the head or the beard;
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:
And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague: and, behold, if the scall spread not, and there be in it no  yellow hair, and the scall be not in sight deeper than the  skin;
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.
But if the scall be in his sight at a stay, and that there is  black hair grown up therein; the scall is healed, he is clean: and the priest shall pronounce him clean.
If a man also or a woman have in the  skin of their  flesh bright spots, even  white bright spots;
Then the priest shall look: and, behold, if the bright spots in the  skin of their  flesh be darkish  white; it is a freckled spot that groweth in the  skin; he is clean.   Leviticus 13:18-39 


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;
He is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall pronounce him utterly unclean; his plague is in his head.   Leviticus 13:43, 44 


Whether it be in the warp, or woof; of  linen, or of woolen; whether in a  skin, or in any thing made of  skin;
And if the plague be greenish or reddish in the  garment, or in the  skin, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of  skin; it is a plague of leprosy, and shall be showed unto the priest:
And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up it that hath the plague seven days:
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.
And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague be somewhat dark after the washing of it; then he shall rend it out of the  garment, or out of the  skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof:
And if it appear still in the  garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of  skin; it is a spreading plague: thou shalt  burn that wherein the plague is with  fire.
And the  garment, either warp, or 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.
This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a  garment of woolen or  linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of  skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.   Leviticus 13:48-59
