14:54 “This is the law for all diseased infections, for scall, 1 14:55 for the diseased garment, 2 for the house, 3 14:56 for the swelling, 4 for the scab, 5 and for the bright spot, 6 14:57 to teach when something is unclean and when it is clean. 7 This is the law for dealing with infectious disease.” 8
7 tn Heb “to teach in the day of the unclean and in the day of the clean.”
8 tn Heb “This is the law of the disease.” Some English versions specify this as “skin disease” (e.g., NIV, NLT), but then have to add “and (+ infectious NLT) mildew” (so NIV) because a house would not be infected with a skin disease.
sn For an explanation of the term “disease” see Lev 13:2.
