Leviticus 15:16-18


15:16 “‘When a man has a seminal emission, 1  he must bathe his whole body in water 2  and be unclean until evening, 15:17 and he must wash in water any clothing or leather that has semen on it, and it will be unclean until evening. 15:18 When a man has sexual intercourse with a woman and there is a seminal emission, 3  they must bathe in water and be unclean until evening.

Leviticus 22:4

22:4 No man 4  from the descendants of Aaron who is diseased or has a discharge 5  may eat the holy offerings until he becomes clean. The one 6  who touches anything made unclean by contact with a dead person, 7  or a man who has a seminal emission, 8 

1 tn Heb “And a man when a lying of seed goes out from him”; KJV, ASV “any man’s seed of copulation”; NIV, NRSV, TEV, NLT “an emission of semen.”

2 tn Heb “and he shall bathe all his flesh in water.”

3 tn Heb “And a woman who a man lies with her a lying of seed.”

4 tn Heb “Man man.” The reduplication is a way of saying “any man” (cf. Lev 15:2; 17:3, etc.), but with a negative command it means “No man” (see B. A. Levine, Leviticus [JPSTC], 147).

5 sn The diseases and discharges mentioned here are those described in Lev 13-15.

6 tn Heb “And the one.”

7 tn Heb “in all unclean of a person/soul”; for the Hebrew term נֶפֶשׁ (nefesh) meaning “a [dead] person,” see the note on Lev 19:28.

8 tn Heb “or a man who goes out from him a lying of seed.”
