Leviticus chapter 13

1
Then the LORD spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,
2
"When a man has on the skin of his body a swelling or a scab or a bright spot, and it becomes an infection of leprosy on the skin of his body, then he shall be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons the priests.
3
"The priest shall look at the mark on the skin of the body, and if the hair in the infection has turned white and the infection appears to be deeper than the skin of his body, it is an infection of leprosy; when the priest has looked at him, he shall pronounce him unclean.
4
"But if the bright spot is white on the skin of his body, and it does not appear to be deeper than the skin, and the hair on it has not turned white, then the priest shall isolate [him who has] the infection for seven days.
5
"The priest shall look at him on the seventh day, and if in his eyes the infection has not changed [and] the infection has not spread on the skin, then the priest shall isolate him for seven more days.
6
"The priest shall look at him again on the seventh day, and if the infection has faded and the mark has not spread on the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean; it is [only] a scab. And he shall wash his clothes and be clean.
7
"But if the scab spreads farther on the skin after he has shown himself to the priest for his cleansing, he shall appear again to the priest.
8
"The priest shall look, and if the scab has spread on the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is leprosy.
9
"When the infection of leprosy is on a man, then he shall be brought to the priest.
10
"The priest shall then look, and if there is a white swelling in the skin, and it has turned the hair white, and there is quick raw flesh in the swelling,
11
it is a chronic leprosy on the skin of his body, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean; he shall not isolate him, for he is unclean.
12
"If the leprosy breaks out farther on the skin, and the leprosy covers all the skin of [him who has] the infection from his head even to his feet, as far as the priest can see,
13
then the priest shall look, and behold, [if] the leprosy has covered all his body, he shall pronounce clean [him who has] the infection; it has all turned white [and] he is clean.
14
"But whenever raw flesh appears on him, he shall be unclean.
15
"The priest shall look at the raw flesh, and he shall pronounce him unclean; the raw flesh is unclean, it is leprosy.
16
"Or if the raw flesh turns again and is changed to white, then he shall come to the priest,
17
and the priest shall look at him, and behold, [if] the infection has turned to white, then the priest shall pronounce clean [him who has] the infection; he is clean.
18
"When the body has a boil on its skin and it is healed,
19
and in the place of the boil there is a white swelling or a reddish-white, bright spot, then it shall be shown to the priest;
20
and the priest shall look, and behold, [if] it appears to be lower than the skin, and the hair on it has turned white, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is the infection of leprosy, it has broken out in the boil.
21
"But if the priest looks at it, and behold, there are no white hairs in it and it is not lower than the skin and is faded, then the priest shall isolate him for seven days;
22
and if it spreads farther on the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is an infection.
23
"But if the bright spot remains in its place and does not spread, it is [only] the scar of the boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.
24
"Or if the body sustains in its skin a burn by fire, and the raw [flesh] of the burn becomes a bright spot, reddish-white, or white,
25
then the priest shall look at it. And if the hair in the bright spot has turned white and it appears to be deeper than the skin, it is leprosy; it has broken out in the burn. Therefore, the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is an infection of leprosy.
26
"But if the priest looks at it, and indeed, there is no white hair in the bright spot and it is no deeper than the skin, but is dim, then the priest shall isolate him for seven days;
27
and the priest shall look at him on the seventh day. If it spreads farther in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is an infection of leprosy.
28
"But if the bright spot remains in its place and has not spread in the skin, but is dim, it is the swelling from the burn; and the priest shall pronounce him clean, for it is [only] the scar of the burn.
29
"Now if a man or woman has an infection on the head or on the beard,
30
then the priest shall look at the infection, and if it appears to be deeper than the skin and there is thin yellowish hair in it, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean; it is a scale, it is leprosy of the head or of the beard.
31
"But if the priest looks at the infection of the scale, and indeed, it appears to be no deeper than the skin and there is no black hair in it, then the priest shall isolate [the person] with the scaly infection for seven days.
32
"On the seventh day the priest shall look at the infection, and if the scale has not spread and no yellowish hair has grown in it, and the appearance of the scale is no deeper than the skin,
33
then he shall shave himself, but he shall not shave the scale; and the priest shall isolate [the person] with the scale seven more days.
34
"Then on the seventh day the priest shall look at the scale, and if the scale has not spread in the skin and it appears to be no deeper than the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean; and he shall wash his clothes and be clean.
35
"But if the scale spreads farther in the skin after his cleansing,
36
then the priest shall look at him, and if the scale has spread in the skin, the priest need not seek for the yellowish hair; he is unclean.
37
"If in his sight the scale has remained, however, and black hair has grown in it, the scale has healed, he is clean; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.
38
"When a man or a woman has bright spots on the skin of the body, [even] white bright spots,
39
then the priest shall look, and if the bright spots on the skin of their bodies are a faint white, it is eczema that has broken out on the skin; he is clean.
40
"Now if a man loses the hair of his head, he is bald; he is clean.
41
"If his head becomes bald at the front and sides, he is bald on the forehead; he is clean.
42
"But if on the bald head or the bald forehead, there occurs a reddish-white infection, it is leprosy breaking out on his bald head or on his bald forehead.
43
"Then the priest shall look at him; and if the swelling of the infection is reddish-white on his bald head or on his bald forehead, like the appearance of leprosy in the skin of the body,
44
he is a leprous man, he is unclean. The priest shall surely pronounce him unclean; his infection is on his head.
45
"As for the leper who has the infection, his clothes shall be torn, and the hair of his head shall be uncovered, and he shall cover his mustache and cry, 'Unclean! Unclean!'
46
"He shall remain unclean all the days during which he has the infection; he is unclean. He shall live alone; his dwelling shall be outside the camp.
47
"When a garment has a mark of leprosy in it, whether it is a wool garment or a linen garment,
48
whether in warp or woof, of linen or of wool, whether in leather or in any article made of leather,
49
if the mark is greenish or reddish in the garment or in the leather, or in the warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather, it is a leprous mark and shall be shown to the priest.
50
"Then the priest shall look at the mark and shall quarantine the article with the mark for seven days.
51
"He shall then look at the mark on the seventh day; if the mark has spread in the garment, whether in the warp or in the woof, or in the leather, whatever the purpose for which the leather is used, the mark is a leprous malignancy, it is unclean.
52
"So he shall burn the garment, whether the warp or the woof, in wool or in linen, or any article of leather in which the mark occurs, for it is a leprous malignancy; it shall be burned in the fire.
53
"But if the priest shall look, and indeed the mark has not spread in the garment, either in the warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather,
54
then the priest shall order them to wash the thing in which the mark occurs and he shall quarantine it for seven more days.
55
"After the article with the mark has been washed, the priest shall again look, and if the mark has not changed its appearance, even though the mark has not spread, it is unclean; you shall burn it in the fire, whether an eating away has produced bareness on the top or on the front of it.
56
"Then if the priest looks, and if the mark has faded after it has been washed, then he shall tear it out of the garment or out of the leather, whether from the warp or from the woof;
57
and if it appears again in the garment, whether in the warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather, it is an outbreak; the article with the mark shall be burned in the fire.
58
"The garment, whether the warp or the woof, or any article of leather from which the mark has departed when you washed it, it shall then be washed a second time and will be clean."
59
This is the law for the mark of leprosy in a garment of wool or linen, whether in the warp or in the woof, or in any article of leather, for pronouncing it clean or unclean.

Leviticus chapter 14

1
Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
2
"This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing. Now he shall be brought to the priest,
3
and the priest shall go out to the outside of the camp. Thus the priest shall look, and if the infection of leprosy has been healed in the leper,
4
then the priest shall give orders to take two live clean birds and cedar wood and a scarlet string and hyssop for the one who is to be cleansed.
5
"The priest shall also give orders to slay the one bird in an earthenware vessel over running water.
6
"[As for] the live bird, he shall take it together with the cedar wood and the scarlet string and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the live bird in the blood of the bird that was slain over the running water.
7
"He shall then sprinkle seven times the one who is to be cleansed from the leprosy and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the live bird go free over the open field.
8
"The one to be cleansed shall then wash his clothes and shave off all his hair and bathe in water and be clean. Now afterward, he may enter the camp, but he shall stay outside his tent for seven days.
9
"It will be on the seventh day that he shall shave off all his hair: he shall shave his head and his beard and his eyebrows, even all his hair. He shall then wash his clothes and bathe his body in water and be clean.
10
"Now on the eighth day he is to take two male lambs without defect, and a yearling ewe lamb without defect, and three-tenths [of an] [ephah] of fine flour mixed with oil for a grain offering, and one log of oil;
11
and the priest who pronounces him clean shall present the man to be cleansed and the aforesaid before the LORD at the doorway of the tent of meeting.
12
"Then the priest shall take the one male lamb and bring it for a guilt offering, with the log of oil, and present them as a wave offering before the LORD.
13
"Next he shall slaughter the male lamb in the place where they slaughter the sin offering and the burnt offering, at the place of the sanctuary-- for the guilt offering, like the sin offering, belongs to the priest; it is most holy.
14
"The priest shall then take some of the blood of the guilt offering, and the priest shall put [it] on the lobe of the right ear of the one to be cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot.
15
"The priest shall also take some of the log of oil, and pour [it] into his left palm;
16
the priest shall then dip his right-hand finger into the oil that is in his left palm, and with his finger sprinkle some of the oil seven times before the LORD.
17
"Of the remaining oil which is in his palm, the priest shall put some on the right ear lobe of the one to be cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot, on the blood of the guilt offering;
18
while the rest of the oil that is in the priest's palm, he shall put on the head of the one to be cleansed. So the priest shall make atonement on his behalf before the LORD.
19
"The priest shall next offer the sin offering and make atonement for the one to be cleansed from his uncleanness. Then afterward, he shall slaughter the burnt offering.
20
"The priest shall offer up the burnt offering and the grain offering on the altar. Thus the priest shall make atonement for him, and he will be clean.
21
"But if he is poor and his means are insufficient, then he is to take one male lamb for a guilt offering as a wave offering to make atonement for him, and one-tenth [of an] [ephah] of fine flour mixed with oil for a grain offering, and a log of oil,
22
and two turtledoves or two young pigeons which are within his means, the one shall be a sin offering and the other a burnt offering.
23
"Then the eighth day he shall bring them for his cleansing to the priest, at the doorway of the tent of meeting, before the LORD.
24
"The priest shall take the lamb of the guilt offering and the log of oil, and the priest shall offer them for a wave offering before the LORD.
25
"Next he shall slaughter the lamb of the guilt offering; and the priest is to take some of the blood of the guilt offering and put [it] on the lobe of the right ear of the one to be cleansed and on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot.
26
"The priest shall also pour some of the oil into his left palm;
27
and with his right-hand finger the priest shall sprinkle some of the oil that is in his left palm seven times before the LORD.
28
"The priest shall then put some of the oil that is in his palm on the lobe of the right ear of the one to be cleansed, and on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot, on the place of the blood of the guilt offering.
29
"Moreover, the rest of the oil that is in the priest's palm he shall put on the head of the one to be cleansed, to make atonement on his behalf before the LORD.
30
"He shall then offer one of the turtledoves or young pigeons, which are within his means.
31
"[He shall offer] what he can afford, the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering, together with the grain offering. So the priest shall make atonement before the LORD on behalf of the one to be cleansed.
32
"This is the law [for him] in whom there is an infection of leprosy, whose means are limited for his cleansing."
33
The LORD further spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying:
34
"When you enter the land of Canaan, which I give you for a possession, and I put a mark of leprosy on a house in the land of your possession,
35
then the one who owns the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, '[Something] like a mark [of leprosy] has become visible to me in the house.'
36
"The priest shall then command that they empty the house before the priest goes in to look at the mark, so that everything in the house need not become unclean; and afterward the priest shall go in to look at the house.
37
"So he shall look at the mark, and if the mark on the walls of the house has greenish or reddish depressions and appears deeper than the surface,
38
then the priest shall come out of the house, to the doorway, and quarantine the house for seven days.
39
"The priest shall return on the seventh day and make an inspection. If the mark has indeed spread in the walls of the house,
40
then the priest shall order them to tear out the stones with the mark in them and throw them away at an unclean place outside the city.
41
"He shall have the house scraped all around inside, and they shall dump the plaster that they scrape off at an unclean place outside the city.
42
"Then they shall take other stones and replace [those] stones, and he shall take other plaster and replaster the house.
43
"If, however, the mark breaks out again in the house after he has torn out the stones and scraped the house, and after it has been replastered,
44
then the priest shall come in and make an inspection. If he sees that the mark has indeed spread in the house, it is a malignant mark in the house; it is unclean.
45
"He shall therefore tear down the house, its stones, and its timbers, and all the plaster of the house, and he shall take [them] outside the city to an unclean place.
46
"Moreover, whoever goes into the house during the time that he has quarantined it, becomes unclean until evening.
47
"Likewise, whoever lies down in the house shall wash his clothes, and whoever eats in the house shall wash his clothes.
48
"If, on the other hand, the priest comes in and makes an inspection and the mark has not indeed spread in the house after the house has been replastered, then the priest shall pronounce the house clean because the mark has not reappeared.
49
"To cleanse the house then, he shall take two birds and cedar wood and a scarlet string and hyssop,
50
and he shall slaughter the one bird in an earthenware vessel over running water.
51
"Then he shall take the cedar wood and the hyssop and the scarlet string, with the live bird, and dip them in the blood of the slain bird as well as in the running water, and sprinkle the house seven times.
52
"He shall thus cleanse the house with the blood of the bird and with the running water, along with the live bird and with the cedar wood and with the hyssop and with the scarlet string.
53
"However, he shall let the live bird go free outside the city into the open field. So he shall make atonement for the house, and it will be clean."
54
This is the law for any mark of leprosy-- even for a scale,
55
and for the leprous garment or house,
56
and for a swelling, and for a scab, and for a bright spot--
57
to teach when they are unclean and when they are clean. This is the law of leprosy.

Acts chapter 17

1
Now when they had traveled through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews.
2
And according to Paul's custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures,
3
explaining and giving evidence that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and [saying], "This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ."
4
And some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, along with a large number of the God-fearing Greeks and a number of the leading women.
5
But the Jews, becoming jealous and taking along some wicked men from the market place, formed a mob and set the city in an uproar; and attacking the house of Jason, they were seeking to bring them out to the people.
6
When they did not find them, they [began] dragging Jason and some brethren before the city authorities, shouting, "These men who have upset the world have come here also;
7
and Jason has welcomed them, and they all act contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, Jesus."
8
They stirred up the crowd and the city authorities who heard these things.
9
And when they had received a pledge from Jason and the others, they released them.
10
The brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews.
11
Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily [to see] whether these things were so.
12
Therefore many of them believed, along with a number of prominent Greek women and men.
13
But when the Jews of Thessalonica found out that the word of God had been proclaimed by Paul in Berea also, they came there as well, agitating and stirring up the crowds.
14
Then immediately the brethren sent Paul out to go as far as the sea; and Silas and Timothy remained there.
15
Now those who escorted Paul brought him as far as Athens; and receiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they left.
16
Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was being provoked within him as he was observing the city full of idols.
17
So he was reasoning in the synagogue with the Jews and the God-fearing [Gentiles], and in the market place every day with those who happened to be present.
18
And also some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers were conversing with him. Some were saying, "What would this idle babbler wish to say?" Others, "He seems to be a proclaimer of strange deities,"-- because he was preaching Jesus and the resurrection.
19
And they took him and brought him to the Areopagus, saying, "May we know what this new teaching is which you are proclaiming?
20
"For you are bringing some strange things to our ears; so we want to know what these things mean."
21
(Now all the Athenians and the strangers visiting there used to spend their time in nothing other than telling or hearing something new.)
22
So Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, "Men of Athens, I observe that you are very religious in all respects.
23
"For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, 'TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.' Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you.
24
"The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands;
25
nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all [people] life and breath and all things;
26
and He made from one [man] every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined [their] appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation,
27
that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us;
28
for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, 'For we also are His children.'
29
"Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man.
30
"Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all [people] everywhere should repent,
31
because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead."
32
Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some [began] to sneer, but others said, "We shall hear you again concerning this."
33
So Paul went out of their midst.
34
But some men joined him and believed, among whom also were Dionysius the Areopagite and a woman named Damaris and others with them.
