Leviticus 12

1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

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.

3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.

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 fulfilled.

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 threescore and six days.

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:

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 hath born a male or a female.

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.

  1. Thank God Almighty, for the New Covenant and for the Blood of his Son Jesus Christ, to where we don’t have to make these kind of sacrifices in order to bare children. The Blood of the Lamb Jesus Christ, the Lamb without blemish has taken care of our sin and made himself the blood sacrifice for us. Thank You Lord Jesus Christ for your precious blood that cleanses us from all our sin. Thank be to God…..

    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 hath born a male or a female.

    “THE BLOOD”………………………………………………………………….

  2. In reading this chapter, it brought to my mind how different this generation is today. I remember women staying in the hospital for 2-3 days after giving birth; when now, you are released the very next day. It seems like even childbearing is a quick, quick drive thru mentality. The Lord placed laws/instructions/commandments in place for a reason and always made a way or option for every woman (person) to be able to comply (whether rich or poor). Thank you Lord for always making a way and being a God of order.

  3. 7 Who shall offer it before the Lord, and make an atonement befor her, and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. this is the law for her that hath born a male or female.

  4. 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 hath born a male or a female.

    Thank you Jesus for your blood that cleanses us.

  5. 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.

    God makes a way for everyone, no matter their financial status. He doesn’t love anyone more than the other, so He wants everyone to have the same chance at forgiveness.

    Acts 10:34
    Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

  6. God wants to cut away some things in our life. The things that make us unclean. Things that cause us to sin and stray away from the destiny God has placed on our lives. Once the weight is cut away, we can begin the healing process. The healing process will help progress us to the next level which allows us to gain strength, move forward and help someone else. If we are to be the children God has called us to be, we must learn to follow every word of God.

  7. iLove to grow in the word

    For all those folks that thought there was no difference between boys and girls… This scripture is for you. Girls are going to be at least 2 times as difficult to raise as boy

    “If a woman gives birth to a daughter, she will be ceremonially unclean for two weeks, just as she is unclean during her menstrual period. After waiting sixty-six days, she will be purified from the bleeding of childbirth.”
    ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭12:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    http://bible.com/116/lev.12.5.nlt

  8. 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:

    Psalms 51:5
    Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.

    A women in active labor is very close to death. Becsuse of this experience and the sinful nature of mankind, women were considered unclean after giving birth. With a male child she had to go through a 40 day purification process and then she could offer her sacrifice of a burnt offering and a sin offering.

    This 40 days of healing brought her and the child to a place she could reconnect with God and make atonement for their sinful nature.

    Many people today want to skip the healing and move on when they fall into sin. Yet the process still remains. Please do not get me wrong God forgives us when we come to Him in repentance but their must be a process of healing. It may not take 40 days it may take 4 minutes but either way healing is important. If you never heal you cannot fully enter in His presence because you have a open womb and we all know that will eventually turn into infection.

    This whole process seems harsh but the reality is in the garden she was cursed. How can a cursed thing bring a spotless lamb when the moment she touches the lamb it becomes unclean because she touched it? She can’t; but thanks be to God that He made a way through a 40 day purification process of healing that she could make atonement for her sins.

    Double thanks be to God that Jesus Christ is the ultimate sacrifice!

  9. Leviticus 12:3
    And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin be circumed.
    Are flesh is God’s flesh. Grow with Jesus Amen

  10. Vs -8
    In these chapters God shows special sensitivity to the poor who are unable to offer .the more expensive lamb.cleansing called for..Mary.herself was unable to bring this unable to bring this offering of the poor after the birth of Jesus. So the law express God’s.concern of the poor.And.it.tells us that.God placed his.own Son in.a.poor.family rather than a family of wealth.

  11. After waiting thirty-three days, she will be purified from the bleeding of childbirth. During this time of purification, she must not touch anything that is set apart as holy. And she must not enter the sanctuary until her time of purification is over. If a woman gives birth to a daughter, she will be ceremonially unclean for two weeks, just as she is unclean during her menstrual period. After waiting sixty-six days, she will be purified from the bleeding of childbirth. (‭Leviticus‬ ‭12‬:‭4-5‬ NLT)

    Wow having children then compare to now! Women were unclean for so long. They couldn’t touch or even enter the sanctuary. Whoever touched her during her purification was considered unclean as well. Her husband, her new born baby, she was isolated from everyone. In today’s society with such a ‘feministic’ world we live in, this wouldn’t had taken place. I thank GOD. For the ultimate sacrifice hat He gave His only begotten son for me, my husband and my children. Makes me wonder how much ‘order’ in our homes we would have spiritually if women would just step back allow the men take their ownership(role) as the head of the their household(priest), where as a nation we would be. Oh JESUS help me. (Us)!

  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:

    Many times we stumble into church without regards to the process, and expect Pastor to make us feel goo for another week or two, or maybe even until the next big event. The Process established by God many years ago says that we need to repent and bring and offering. When we come before Jesus, if we want to hear Him, or be in His presence, we must have something to give.

  13. WE CANT SKIP THE PROCESS

    1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

    Too often we hear the phrase; “thats mans rules” however we hear repeatedly that GOD has given man, every one of these rules to help us become and maintain a sense of holiness in our lives.

    From the required sacrifice to the required season of time, it was all instructions from the LORD. I am so thankful that when the WORD of GOD is not defined in specific detail, the SPIRIT of GOD instructs us where to go and how to redeem ourselves through sacrifice.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

  14. wow, what unclean sin are you hiding in your spirit today? Makes one wonder how we think we can get away with hiding sin when back in the day you couldn’t even go to the sanctuary. God help us today to repent daily for the sins we have committed and for the ones we didn’t know were wrong.

  15. It’s really kind of mind blowing to see how much the process of child birth has changed from the Bible and through history. Today, it is nothing more than a business to hospitals. Their goal is to get mom and baby in and out as fast as possible so another can come in – all they see is “$$$.” Makes you wonder how different the world would be if people would have continued to obey the word of God. My thought is that our world today breaks the heart of God, to see that His children are living in a world of chaos and such appalling laws that have strayed so far from His own. This world needs Jesus and God wants to use us to reach them POFW!!

  16. Being in sin on the first day. We are born into sin. This is why I believe they offered the sun offering. Because after Adam and Eve, there was sin.

  17. 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.

  18. Luke 18:22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

    Does Jesus require us to sell all that we have and follow Him today? If what we have would hinder our relationship with Him, yes. However, once we learn from whence our help cometh, worldly possessions have no power over us. I have discussed this very thing with several people around the country. People who are truly blessed of in this world by God have an understanding that at any moment the Lord may ask for certain dollar amounts or physical possessions to be given. It is the mentality of the possessor and their willingness to give up these “things” at a moment’s notice that God trusts.

    Mathew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

    The Lord will and must prove us. He must know whether He can trust us with smaller possessions before He trusts us with great wealth. If we are stingy and lie and cheat over small amounts of worldly possessions; likely we will act the same if not worse were we granted access to greater responsibilities. So, wherever you find yourself in life, learn how to manage what you are responsible for. Understand that all our possessions are His and we are simply stewards of His possessions and He is welcome to allow us to use or distribute according to His will.

  19. No excuse for not having a sacrifice

    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:

    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 hath born a male or a female.

    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.

    God leaves options and allocations for all to be able to bring something to be a sacrifice for your atonement but I am so thankful for the One and Ultimate sacrifice not for atonement but for REMISSION – the debt has been paid to the full balance – the Preciouse Blood Of the Lamb Jesus Christ. There is no better sacrifice given. Thankful for a Pastor That speaks Truth and just like God made allocation for all of us to be able to sacrifice something this 40 days of Passion!!!! Thank you Jesus for your Blood that shall NEVER lose its POWER!!!!

  20. After waiting thirty-three days, she will be purified from the bleeding of childbirth. During this time of purification, she must not touch anything that is set apart as holy. And she must not enter the sanctuary until her time of purification is over.
    Leviticus 12:4 NLT

    Before we even enter church if there is any sin or uncleanliness in us we must first be purified and repent. We must remember that we ate stepping on holy ground where there is light there cant be any darkness.

  21. 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.

    3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.

    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 fulfilled.

    Forty days is a time of probation and consecration. It is also a time of purging. When rearing a small child you must be focused and dedicated. This gives good time to align herself spiritually as well as physically.

  22. Our covenant with God is now through repentance, baptism in the Name of Jesus and the sign is receiving the holy ghost evidenced by speaking in tongues.

  23. 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.

    There is no excuses in the kingdom of God, everyone should be able to give something to the most high. He sacrificed everything so we could live a forgiven life, so giving to Him shouldn’t be so hard whether it be through money or praise. Lord help me to live a more sacrificial life for you!

  24. 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.

    God makes a way for everyone, no matter their financial status. He doesn’t love anyone more than the other, so He wants everyone to have the same chance at forgiveness.

  25. 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.
    Than you Jesus for leaving no out! Its not only for the Rich of the Riches, but it is also made for people that dont have as much resources. There isnt no excuse we all must give as God commands.

  26. Leviticus 12:1-2

    1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
    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.

    Birthing children is serious business. In the spiritual we should never take soul winning lightly. This is intentional purpose-filled work. Our hands get bloody with the sacrifice so to speak. We must be willing to go where they are and pull them out no matter the cost.

  27. 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:

  28. 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:

    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 hath born a male or a female.

    Many times people might question what is done with their ofgerings. Time and time again we see how the people brought over their peace offering or a sin offering or whatever ofgering it might be and hand it over to the preist for attonment. We should not question but trust our man of God for the Lord has put him in charge and knows how to go in front of God for our offerings. It is a matter of trust. We should trust that have rule over us.

  29. Proverbs 21:2-4 NLT) people may be right in their own eyes but the Lord examines their heart (9) the Lord is more pleaded when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifice 4) haughty eyes a proud heart and evil actionso are all sin

  30. 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 fulfilled.

    Thank God for Jesus dying at the cross he tore the veil. Thank you for loving me Jesus!!!!!

  31. 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.

    You have to give sacrificially, if all you have is twenty dollars and God tells you to give it that’s giving sacrificially and God will bless you for that!!

  32. 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 hath born a male or a female.

  33. 8“If a woman cannot afford to bring a lamb, she must bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons. One will be for the burnt offering and the other for the purification offering. The priest will sacrifice them to purify her, and she will be ceremonially clean.”

    God makes it possible for everyone to give/make a sacrifice. Whether your rich or poor, the main thing is to sacrifice. Whether you give $10k, $1k, $100, $10 or $1, God wants us to give. Its better to give than to receive.

  34. 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 hath born a male or a female.

    An atonement was offered to cleanse from the issue of her blood this was done to her that had a male or female child.

    Lord thank you for allowing antonement for the body to become pleasing and acceptable to you Lord.

  35. It’s amazing what a woman, who lived in the dispensation of the law, had to do after child birth to be clean. She had to go through a certain amount of time to be purified; she couldn’t touch anything that was hallowed; and she couldn’t come into the sanctuary. After her days of purification, she then had to bring a burnt offering and sin offering to the priest, so that, he could make an atonement for her, and then she would be clean.

    Roman’s 10:4 in the (AMP) version says, “For Christ is the end of the law (it leads to Him and its purpose is fulfilled in Him), for (granting) righteousness to everyone who believes (in Him as Saviour).

    We no longer live in the dispensation of the law, but in the dispensation of Grace.

    Thank You Jesus for all you have done! Thank You Jesus for your Grace!

  36. 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.

    3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.

    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 fulfilled.

    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 threescore and six days.

    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:

    I find it interesting that they had to give a sin offering for childbirth. But as I think about it, I’ve taken so much for granted, and complained about little things. Gods Grace is not to be underestimated , because without it where would I be. Thank you Jesus for your GRACE.

  37. “And the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.” The word of God (Jesus) states what will transpire through the man of God. One should reverence, and never take the word of God or the man of God (God chosen, not man chosen) lightly. Dear God, help us (me) to be observant of all your ways, in Jesus name. “In God we (I) trust”. “One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. May God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  38. “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”. The sacrifice of a mother for her children is no small matter. A God fearing mother will pray and travail for her children, whereas one that simply has children will not. God Bless the mothers, in Jesus name

  39. 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.

    Thank you Jesus for I am a man.

  40. This chapter shows us the importance of purification it shows that before we can enter into God’s presence we must first repent and seek cleanse cleansing from our sins.

  41. 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

    I pray that we won’t cut our offerings short unto God but we will give it all unto the Lord. That we won’t make excuses for why we can’t bring an offering but will start thinking of things we are blessed with to give and God will know our hearts of sacrifice to willingly take it. Thank you Jesus for being an all knowing God, what a mighty God we serve!

  42. “” ‘But suppose she can’t afford a lamb. Then she must bring two doves or two young pigeons. One is for a burnt offering. The other is for a sin offering. The priest will sacrifice those offerings. That will pay for her sin. And she will be “clean.” ‘ “”
    ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭12:8‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    I’m so thankful for the Lamb of God! It just took one drop of blood.

  43. The same lamb

    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:

    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 hath born a male or a female.

    Jesus the same yesterday, today and forever.

    The woman with the issue of blood that pressed through the crowd with great faith just to touch the hem of his garment knowing that she would be healed must have known about this law. She was looking for a lamb. The lamb held the healing. When she found him she knew it was done. The lamb slain from the foundation of the world. The same issue and the same solution. Jesus is the answer for the world today!

  44. 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.

    This is a way to allow people who might not have the funds to still follow the law. The law was the way the people obeyed, showing their repentance, so they saw the glory of God. Let us always keep a repented heart and maintain the law to show God we truly have repented. Then the glory of God can be revealed.

  45. After the laws concerning clean and unclean food, come the laws concerning clean and unclean of a person. People pass down their imperfect nature to their offspring, so that, excepting as the atonement of Christ and the sanctification of the Spirit prevent, the original blessing, “Increase and multiply,” Genesis 1:28. Let those women who have received mercy from God in child-bearing, obedience in his drawn out plan here will please the Lord better than sacrifices. This shows us the relevance of our need of Jesus’ blood applied to our lives, being filled with His Spirit and separation from things of this world.

  46. 3 And in the eighth day the skin of his foreskin shall be circumcised

    Just an interesting medical fact I learned as a nurse-that the pain receptors in the body that register pain in the body are the lowest on the 8th day of life, meaning that we feel pain less on that day. And Vitamin K peaks on the eighth day-Vit K is what the body uses for clotting of blood. God is all knowing being the Creator and designated this day for circumcision. There probably are other reasons as well, but here are the medical ones I’m aware of.

  47. I’m seeing that even the 40 day rest is a biblical thing. I don’t understand why it would be different for a male child and a female child, some things are just a matter of obedience.

    It reminds me of a scripture John 14:15

    15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

    Obedience to his Word will measure our love for God!

  48. The priest bore a lot of responsibility offering all the sacrifices that we have read about in the last several chapters. Our Priest (Pastor) no longer has to make our sacrifice for us, but he still bears much responsibility in leading us each day toward our relationship with the Lord, and feeding us each week to grow stronger in the Lord.

  49. ““Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘If a woman has conceived, and borne a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days; as in the days of her customary impurity she shall be unclean.”(Leviticus‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

    This general statement is afterwards specified by the phrases “and born a man child,” and “bear a maid child,” in the verse before us, and in Leviticus 12:5. Thus the regulations about impurity naturally begin with the beginning of life.The expression rendered here in the Authorised Version by “a man child” is translated in Leviticus 12:7 simply “male.Though the issue of blood which succeeds child-birth generally only lasts three or four days, yet the period of uncleanness is extended to seven days to include exceptional cases.The fact that reference is here made to the regulations about the periodical impurity of women which have not as yet been laid down shows that, like other laws, this law was already known to and generally practised by the Jews before it was finally fixed in the Levitical code.In Jesus Name !!!!

  50. Leviticus 12 New Living Translation (NLT)
    Purification after Childbirth
    6 “When the time of purification is completed for either a son or a daughter, the woman must bring a one-year-old lamb for a burnt offering and a young pigeon or turtledove for a purification offering. She must bring her offerings to the priest at the entrance of the Tabernacle.[a] 7 The priest will then present them to the Lord to purify her.[b] Then she will be ceremonially clean again after her bleeding at childbirth. These are the instructions for a woman after the birth of a son or a daughter.
    8 “If a woman cannot afford to bring a lamb, she must bring two turtledoves or two young pigeons. One will be for the burnt offering and the other for the purification offering. The priest will sacrifice them to purify her, and she will be ceremonially clean.”

    2 Corinthians 9:7 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
    Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, “prompt to do it”) giver [whose heart is in his giving].

    Just as God expected the woman to bring Him an offering, he still expects the same from us now, but he wants us to do it willingly . GOD wanted the woman to bring an offering off some kind, even if she couldn’t afford the lamb. How awesome is He, who loved me and gave himself for me. He deserves more than I could ever give. Thank you Jesus for loving me even when I didn’t love myself. I love you Jesus!
