Leviticus 15:25-30

Context

15:25 “‘When a woman’s discharge of blood flows 1  many days not at the time of her menstruation, or if it flows beyond the time of her menstruation, 2  all the days of her discharge of impurity will be like the days of her menstruation – she is unclean. 15:26 Any bed she lies on all the days of her discharge will be to her like the bed of her menstruation, any furniture she sits on will be unclean like the impurity of her menstruation, 15:27 and anyone who touches them will be unclean, and he must wash his clothes, bathe in water, and be unclean until evening. 3 

Purity Regulations from Female Bodily Discharges

15:28 “‘If 4  she becomes clean from her discharge, then she is to count off for herself seven days, and afterward she will be clean. 15:29 Then on the eighth day she must take for herself two turtledoves or two young pigeons 5  and she must bring them to the priest at the entrance of the Meeting Tent, 15:30 and the priest is to make one a sin offering and the other a burnt offering. 6  So the priest 7  is to make atonement for her before the Lord from her discharge of impurity.

1 tn Heb “And a woman when the flow of her blood flows.”

2 tn Heb “in not the time of her menstruation or when it flows on her menstruation.”

3 tn See the note on v. 5 above.

4 tn Heb “And if…” Although this clause is parallel to v. 13 above, it begins with וְאִם (vÿim, “and if”) here rather than וְכִי (vÿkhi, “and when/if”) there.

5 tn Heb “from the sons of the pigeon,” referring either to “young pigeons” or “various species of pigeon” (contrast J. Milgrom, Leviticus [AB], 1:168 with J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 14; cf. Lev 1:14 and esp. 5:7-10).

6 tn Heb “And the priest shall make the one a sin offering and the one a burnt offering.”

7 tn Heb “And the priest.” The Hebrew conjunction ו (vav, “and”) can be considered to have resultative force here.
