was under the man, you will be unclean until evening. You must wash
your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean
until evening. If the man touches you without first rinsing his hands, you
must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain
unclean until evening. Any clay pot the man touches must be broken, and
any wooden utensil he touches must be rinsed with water.
“When the man with the discharge is healed, he must count off seven
days for the period of purification. Then he must wash his clothes and
bathe himself in fresh water, and he will be ceremonially clean. On the
eighth day he must get two turtledoves or two young pigeons and come
before the Lord at the entrance of the Tabernacle and give his offerings
to the priest. The priest will offer one bird for a sin offering and the other
for a burnt offering. Through this process, the priest will purify the man
before the Lord for his discharge.
“Whenever a man has an emission of semen, he must bathe his entire
body in water, and he will remain ceremonially unclean until the next evening. Any clothing or leather with semen on it must be washed in water,
and it will remain unclean until evening. After a man and a woman have
sexual intercourse, they must each bathe in water, and they will remain
unclean until the next evening.

unclean for seven days. Anyone who touches her during that time will be

must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain
unclean until evening. If you touch any object she has sat on, you must
wash your clothes and bathe yourself in water, and you will remain unclean until evening. This includes her bed or any other object she has sat
on; you will be unclean until evening if you touch it. If a man has sexual
intercourse with her and her blood touches him, her menstrual impurity
will be transmitted to him. He will remain unclean for seven days, and any
bed on which he lies will be unclean.
“If a woman has a flow of blood for many days that is unrelated to her
menstrual period, or if the blood continues beyond the normal period,
she is ceremonially unclean. As during her menstrual period, the woman
will be unclean as long as the discharge continues. Any bed she lies on
and any object she sits on during that time will be unclean, just as during
her normal menstrual period. If any of you touch these things, you will be
ceremonially unclean. You must wash your clothes and bathe yourself in
water, and you will remain unclean until evening.
“When the woman’s bleeding stops, she must count off seven days.
Then she will be ceremonially clean. On the eighth day she must bring
