43 But if, after the stones be taken out, and the dust scraped off, and it be plastered with other earth, 44 The priest going in perceive that the leprosy is returned, and the walls full of spots, it is a lasting leprosy, and the house is unclean: 45 And they shall destroy it forthwith, and shall cast the stones and timber thereof, and all the dust without the town into an unclean place.
46 He that entereth into the house when it is shut, shall be unclean until evening, 47 And he that sleepeth in it, and eateth any thing, shall wash his clothes. 48 But if the priest going in perceive that the leprosy is not spread in the house, after it was plastered again, he shall purify it, it being cured, 49 And for the purification thereof he shall take two sparrows, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop: 50 And having immolated one sparrow In an earthen vessel over living waters,
51 He shall take the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet, and the living sparrow, and shall dip all in the blood of the sparrow that is immolated, and in the living water, and he shall sprinkle the house seven times: 52 And shall purify it as well with the blood of the sparrow, as with the living water, and with the living sparrow, and with the cedar wood, and the hyssop, and the scarlet. 53 And when he hath let go the sparrow to fly freely away into the field, he shall pray for the house, and it shall be rightly cleansed. 54 This is the law of every kind of leprosy and stroke. 55 Of the leprosy of garments and houses,
56 Of a scar and of blisters breaking out, of a shining spot, and when the colours are diversely changed: 57 That it may be known when a thing is clean or unclean.
