Leviticus 13:6


The priest must then examine it again on the seventh day, 1  and if 2  the infection has faded and has not spread on the skin, then the priest is to pronounce the person clean. 3  It is a scab, 4  so he must wash his clothes 5  and be clean.

tn That is, at the end of the second set of seven days referred to at the end of v. 5, a total of fourteen days after the first appearance before the priest.

tn Heb “and behold.”

tn Heb “he shall make him clean.” The verb is the Piel of טָהֵר (taher, “to be clean”). Here it is a so-called “declarative” Piel (i.e., “to declare clean”), but it also implies that the person is put into the category of being “clean” by the pronouncement itself (J. E. Hartley, Leviticus [WBC], 176; cf. the corresponding opposite in v. 3 above).

tn On the term “scab” see the note on v. 2 above. Cf. NAB “it was merely eczema”; NRSV “only an eruption”; NLT “only a temporary rash.”

tn Heb “and he shall wash his clothes.”
