Leviticus 13:43


The priest is to examine it, 1  and if 2  the swelling of the infection is reddish white in the back or front bald area like the appearance of a disease on the skin of the body, 3 

NET © Notes

tn Heb “and the priest shall see it” (cf. KJV). The MT has “him/it” which some take to refer to the person as a whole (i.e., “him”; see, e.g., J. Milgrom, Leviticus [AB], 1:770; NIV, NRSV, etc.), while others take it as a reference to the “infection” (נֶגַע, nega’) in v. 42 (J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 172, 177). Smr has “her/it,” which would probably refer to “disease” (צָרַעַת, tsaraat) in v. 42. The general pattern in the chapter suggests that “it,” either the infection or the disease, is the object of the examination (see, e.g., v. 3 above and v. 50 below).

tn Heb “and behold.”

tn Heb “like appearance of disease of skin of flesh.”
