1 Purification of the unclean
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
2 This is the ordinance of the law which the Lord hath commanded, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer without spot, wherein is no blemish, Deut. 21:3;1 Sam. 6:7and upon which never came yoke:
3 And ye shall give her unto Eleazar the priest, that he may bring her Lev. 4:12,21;& 16:27;Heb. 13:11forth without the camp, and one shall slay her before his face:
4 And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his finger, and Lev. 4:6;& 16:14,19;Heb. 9:13sprinkle of her blood directly before the tabernacle of the congregation seven times:
5 And one shall burn the heifer in his sight; Ex. 29:14;Lev. 4:11,12her skin, and her flesh, and her blood, with her dung, shall he burn:
6 And the priest shall take Lev. 14:4,6,49cedar wood, and hyssop, and scarlet, and cast it into the midst of the burning of the heifer.
7 Lev. 11:25;& 15:5Then the priest shall wash his clothes, and he shall bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp, and the priest shall be unclean until the even.
8 And he that burneth her shall wash his clothes in water, and bathe his flesh in water, and shall be unclean until the even.
9 And a man that is clean shall gather up Heb. 9:13the ashes of the heifer, and lay them up without the camp in a clean place, and it shall be kept for the congregation of the children of Israel ver. 13,20,21for a water of separation: it is a purification for sin.
10 And he that gathereth the ashes of the heifer shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: and it shall be unto the children of Israel, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among them, for a statute for ever.
12 ch. 31:19He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and on the seventh day he shall be clean: but if he purify not himself the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be clean.
13 Whosoever toucheth the dead body of any man that is dead, and purifieth not himself, Lev. 15:31defileth the tabernacle of the Lord; and that soul shall be cut off from Israel: because ver. 9;ch. 8:7the water of separation was not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean; Lev. 7:20;& 22:3his uncleanness is yet upon him.
14 This is the law, when a man dieth in a tent: all that come into the tent, and all that is in the tent, shall be unclean seven days.
15 And every Lev. 11:32;ch. 31:20open vessel, which hath no covering bound upon it, is unclean.
16 And ver. 11whosoever toucheth one that is slain with a sword in the open fields, or a dead body, or a bone of a man, or a grave, shall be unclean seven days.
18 And a clean person shall take Ps. 51:7hyssop, and dip it in the water, and sprinkle it upon the tent, and upon all the vessels, and upon the persons that were there, and upon him that touched a bone, or one slain, or one dead, or a grave:
19 And the clean person shall sprinkle upon the unclean on the third day, and on the seventh day: Lev. 14:9and on the seventh day he shall purify himself, and wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and shall be clean at even.
20 But the man that shall be unclean, and shall not purify himself, that soul shall be cut off from among the congregation, because he hath ver. 13defiled the sanctuary of the Lord: the water of separation hath not been sprinkled upon him; he is unclean.
21 And it shall be a perpetual statute unto them, that he that sprinkleth the water of separation shall wash his clothes; and he that toucheth the water of separation shall be unclean until even.
22 And Hag. 2:13whatsoever the unclean person toucheth shall be unclean; and Lev. 15:5the soul that toucheth it shall be unclean until even.
