The purification of women after birth
12:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
12:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have
conceived seed, and born a man child then she shall be unclean
seven days ; according to the days of the separation for her
infirmity shall she be unclean.
12:3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be
12:4 And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying
three and thirty days ; she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor
come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be
12:5 But if she bear a maid child, then she shall be unclean two
weeks, as in her separation and she shall continue in the blood
of her purifying sixty and six days.
Offerings of purification of women after birth
12:6 And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son,
or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a
burnt offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin
offering, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation,
unto the priest
12:7 Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an atonement
for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood.
This [is] the law for her that has born a male or a female.
12:8 And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring
two turtles, or two young pigeons ; the one for the burnt
offering, and the other for a sin offering and the priest shall
make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.
