Leviticus 13

And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,

When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:

And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days:

And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread not in the skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:

And the priest shall look on him again the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague be somewhat dark, and the plague spread not in the skin, the priest shall pronounce him clean: it is but a scab: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

But if the scab spread much abroad in the skin, after that he hath been seen of the priest for his cleansing, he shall be seen of the priest again.

And if the priest see that, behold, the scab spreadeth in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a leprosy.

When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought unto the priest;

10 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the rising be white in the skin, and it have turned the hair white, and there be quick raw flesh in the rising;

11 It is an old leprosy in the skin of his flesh, and the priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not shut him up: for he is unclean.

12 And if a leprosy break out abroad in the skin, and the leprosy cover all the skin of him that hath the plague from his head even to his foot, wheresoever the priest looketh;

13 Then the priest shall consider: and, behold, if the leprosy have covered all his flesh, he shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: it is all turned white: he is clean.

14 But when raw flesh appeareth in him, he shall be unclean.

15 And the priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him to be unclean: for the raw flesh is unclean: it is a leprosy.

16 Or if the raw flesh turn again, and be changed unto white, he shall come unto the priest;

17 And the priest shall see him: and, behold, if the plague be turned into white; then the priest shall pronounce him clean that hath the plague: he is clean.

18 The flesh also, in which, even in the skin thereof, was a boil, and is healed,

19 And in the place of the boil there be a white rising, or a bright spot, white, and somewhat reddish, and it be shewed to the priest;

20 And if, when the priest seeth it, behold, it be in sight lower than the skin, and the hair thereof be turned white; the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague of leprosy broken out of the boil.

21 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hairs therein, and if it be not lower than the skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

22 And if it spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a plague.

23 But if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not, it is a burning boil; and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

24 Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is a hot burning, and the quick flesh that burneth have a white bright spot, somewhat reddish, or white;

25 Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the hair in the bright spot be turned white, and it be in sight deeper than the skin; it is a leprosy broken out of the burning: wherefore the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

26 But if the priest look on it, and, behold, there be no white hair in the bright spot, and it be no lower than the other skin, but be somewhat dark; then the priest shall shut him up seven days:

27 And the priest shall look upon him the seventh day: and if it be spread much abroad in the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is the plague of leprosy.

28 And if the bright spot stay in his place, and spread not in the skin, but it be somewhat dark; it is a rising of the burning, and the priest shall pronounce him clean: for it is an inflammation of the burning.

29 If a man or woman have a plague upon the head or the beard;

30 Then the priest shall see the plague: and, behold, if it be in sight deeper than the skin; and there be in it a yellow thin hair; then the priest shall pronounce him unclean: it is a dry scall, even a leprosy upon the head or beard.

31 And if the priest look on the plague of the scall, and, behold, it be not in sight deeper than the skin, and that there is no black hair in it; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague of the scall seven days:

32 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the plague: and, behold, if the scall spread not, and there be in it no yellow hair, and the scall be not in sight deeper than the skin;

33 He shall be shaven, but the scall shall he not shave; and the priest shall shut up him that hath the scall seven days more:

34 And in the seventh day the priest shall look on the scall: and, behold, if the scall be not spread in the skin, nor be in sight deeper than the skin; then the priest shall pronounce him clean: and he shall wash his clothes, and be clean.

35 But if the scall spread much in the skin after his cleansing;

36 Then the priest shall look on him: and, behold, if the scall be spread in the skin, the priest shall not seek for yellow hair; he is unclean.

37 But if the scall be in his sight at a stay, and that there is black hair grown up therein; the scall is healed, he is clean: and the priest shall pronounce him clean.

38 If a man also or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright spots, even white bright spots;

39 Then the priest shall look: and, behold, if the bright spots in the skin of their flesh be darkish white; it is a freckled spot that groweth in the skin; he is clean.

40 And the man whose hair is fallen off his head, he is bald; yet is he clean.

41 And he that hath his hair fallen off from the part of his head toward his face, he is forehead bald: yet is he clean.

42 And if there be in the bald head, or bald forehead, a white reddish sore; it is a leprosy sprung up in his bald head, or his bald forehead.

43 Then the priest shall look upon it: and, behold, if the rising of the sore be white reddish in his bald head, or in his bald forehead, as the leprosy appeareth in the skin of the flesh;

44 He is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall pronounce him utterly unclean; his plague is in his head.

45 And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean.

46 All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his habitation be.

47 The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it be a woollen garment, or a linen garment;

48 Whether it be in the warp, or woof; of linen, or of woollen; whether in a skin, or in any thing made of skin;

49 And if the plague be greenish or reddish in the garment, or in the skin, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin; it is a plague of leprosy, and shall be shewed unto the priest:

50 And the priest shall look upon the plague, and shut up it that hath the plague seven days:

51 And he shall look on the plague on the seventh day: if the plague be spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in a skin, or in any work that is made of skin; the plague is a fretting leprosy; it is unclean.

52 He shall therefore burn that garment, whether warp or woof, in woollen or in linen, or any thing of skin, wherein the plague is: for it is a fretting leprosy; it shall be burnt in the fire.

53 And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin;

54 Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more:

55 And the priest shall look on the plague, after that it is washed: and, behold, if the plague have not changed his colour, and the plague be not spread; it is unclean; thou shalt burn it in the fire; it is fret inward, whether it be bare within or without.

56 And if the priest look, and, behold, the plague be somewhat dark after the washing of it; then he shall rend it out of the garment, or out of the skin, or out of the warp, or out of the woof:

57 And if it appear still in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin; it is a spreading plague: thou shalt burn that wherein the plague is with fire.

58 And the garment, either warp, or woof, or whatsoever thing of skin it be, which thou shalt wash, if the plague be departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean.

59 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

  1. Leviticus 13:1 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,

    The priest could only convict the Leper, but Christ can cure the sinner, he can take away the sin. It is a work of great importance, but of great difficulty, to judge of our Spiritual state.We all have cause to suspect ourselves, being conscious of sores and spots; but whether clean or unclean is the question.

    Matthew 8:4 And Jesus said unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thy self to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded for a testimony unto them.

  2. 44“He is a leprous man, he is unclean: the priest shall pronounce him utterly unclean; his plague is in his head.”

    59 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it.

    Can’t afford to have leprosy in the camp Weatherby leprosy in the head or leprosy in your heart we need Clean they both kill the soul.

  3. I am reminded this morning after reading this chapter, about a time we had an illustration in one of our G-Forces at the old campus. We had one youth come in with a white shirt (young church going believer) and another youth (lost youth) come in with a black shirt covered in soot. Every time the church going young believer came close to the sinning youth his completely clean white shirt became tainted with spots representing the sinful nature rubbing off on him too. Many may read and say oh this chapter doesn’t pertain to us; but, in reality we may have become tainted without even realizing when and where it occurred. This is why we repent daily as we must be alert and always aware of what can taint us.

  4. 59 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

    Just like the leprosy in this chapter, that cause one to clean or unclean must be examined by the priest. We have to allow God to deem us cleaned from the sin that will consume us it we do not remove it. We have to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness to deem our spirits clean. If we remain unclean, eventually our spirit will infect our physical appearance and b infectious to others. God’s mercy and grace will allow us to come to the throne to be examined and be cleaned.

    I had this song come to when while reading this chapter this morning:

    I see shattered
    You see whole
    I see broken
    But You see beautiful
    And You’re helping me to believe
    You’re restoring me piece by piece
    There’s nothing too dirty
    That You can’t make worthy
    You wash me in mercy
    I am clean
    There’s nothing too dirty
    That You can’t make worthy
    You wash me in mercy
    I am clean
    What was dead now lives again
    My heart’s beating, beating inside my chest
    Oh I’m coming alive with joy and destiny
    ‘Cause You’re restoring me piece by piece
    There’s nothing too dirty
    That You can’t make worthy
    You wash me in mercy
    I am clean
    There’s nothing too dirty
    That You can’t make worthy
    You wash me in mercy
    I am clean
    Washed in the blood of Your sacrifice
    Your blood flowed red and made me white
    My dirty rags are purified
    I am clean
    Washed in the blood of Your sacrifice
    Your blood flowed red and made me white
    My dirty rags are purified
    I’m clean, I’m clean
    Washed in the blood of Your sacrifice
    Your blood flowed red and made me white
    My dirty rags are purified
    I’m clean
    I am clean
    I’m clean
    Oh You made me
    You wash me
    Clean
    Oh You made me clean

  5. 15. And the priest shall see the raw flesh, and pronounce him to be unclean: for the raw flesh is unclean: it is a leprosy.

    I can’t help but feel sorry for the priests that had to look at all these folks’ flesh and judge them clean or unclean.
    It’s like Jesus, our High Priest has to look upon us now with our fleshly flaws and stinking thinking and judge us clean or unclean.

    Isaiah 64:6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

  6. 53 And if the priest shall look, and, behold, the plague be not spread in the garment, either in the warp, or in the woof, or in any thing of skin;

    54 Then the priest shall command that they wash the thing wherein the plague is, and he shall shut it up seven days more:

    Could you imagine the danger that priest was in by looking to so many potential contagious illnesses. As a person having to show yourself to be determined if you are clean or not. Leprosy now a days could be a symbol of sin. Sin could creep in our lives and in our church without us knowing. If we allow certain people to speak to us and without knowing they begin to affect our daily lives. That is one that show itself as innocent to begin with is gossip. It begins very innocently and before you know it, it will destroy your lives. So please do not allow it! Look at the person, call it for what it is gossip, and let them know that you do not allow that in your life, and if they don’t want it to ruin theirs they better stop. I know how a couple of times, gossip attempted to destroy mine, that’s why I make very clear in my life that I DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN GOSSIP!!! It is not innocent talk, it is not just a comment, and it is not right in the sight of God!!! Thank you Jesus for teaching me your ways!!!

  7. Leviticus 13: 46-47 [Amp] He shall remain unclean as long as the disease is in him; He is unclean ; he shall live alone [ and] his dwelling shall be outside the camp. [47] The garment also that the disease of leprosy [ symbolic of sin] is in, whether a will or a linen garment .He is a leprous man who is unclean.
    Rev. 3:4] Yet you still have a few [ person’s] names in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes, and they shall walk with Me in white, Because they are worthy and deserving. Repent daily , Pray and read our bible. GIve God our best.

  8. 1 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,

    They were to report to Moses and Aaron if they had any physical blemishes. Knowing God has all power, He is our first source of hope and restoration! God You are our healer!

  9. God has always given instructions so that we can live a holy life. In the old testament it was for physical application because He had not reconciled us through Jesus Christ yet. But all through the new testament as well there are daily living practices even spiritually to keep ourselves set apart.

  10. And the leper in whom the plague is, his clothes shall be rent, and his head bare, and he shall put a covering upon his upper lip, and shall cry, Unclean, unclean. All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his habitation be.
    Leviticus 13:45‭-‬46 KJV

    Lepers were contagious. It is airborne, people who had leporacy suffered alot of symptoms. They were put out the camp and had to cry out unclean, it wasnt to be mean, ot was so that others would stay away.

    Leprosy / Contagiousness
    Contagious
    HOW IT SPREADS
    By airborne respiratory droplets (coughs or sneezes).

    Some of the symptoms were and still are
    Symptoms include light colored or red skin patches with reduced sensation, numbness and weakness in hands and feet.
    People may experience:
    Pain areas: in the joints
    Skin: blister, loss of color, rashes, redness, or ulcers
    Sensory: loss of temperature sensation, pins and needles, or reduced sensation of touch
    Also common: nerve injury or weight loss

    God couldnt let the whole camp be struck, so with these kinds of problems, it was best to make them be isolated, that’s what the do in the case of deadly disease, they isolate you, so its contained, sometimes God has to get us by ourselves to heal us, and do a work in us.

    First the kingdom
    Even in sickness…God is good

  11. And the garment, either warp, or woof, or whatsoever thing of skin it be, which thou shalt wash, if the plague be departed from them, then it shall be washed the second time, and shall be clean. This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.
    Leviticus 13:58‭-‬59 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/lev.13.58-59.KJV

    To be unclean is not a very healthy lifestyle to live. Eventually it will catch up with you. God wants us clean with no blemish. We are cleaned only by baptism in the water and of the fire of the Holy Ghost. I know that I have to work everyday to stay clean of the spirits that roam this world. Are there areas that I need to improve on; absolutely. Am I 100% clean and ready for the Father: no. It is what I struggle with daily; to strengthen myself in prayer and in His word. Thank you Jesus for giving me the strength to keep seeking after your Kingdom and striving to be cleaned in your sight.

    Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
    Matthew 23:25‭-‬28 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.23.25-28.KJV

    This is how I feel at times; I’m nice and clean on the outside doing God’s work, but feel dirty on the inside. It’s like this; I look at a nice clean cup for my coffee; then I look inside of it and say I’m not drinking that. That is how God sees us; we’re nice and polished on the exterior, not then He sees what’s in our heart and our mind. Wake up and realize that God wants us purified inside and out. Clean your soul, heart, and mind. I know I struggle in these areas, but I thank you Jesus for guiding me through.

  12. 3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.
    4 If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days

    You can research medical information on these same issuesand you will find that nearly every method of dealing with these diseases and wounds is spot-on. Way before medical science discovered how to deal with certain diseases your Bible had solutions that were either more effective or just as effective has what they said. All throughout the word of God you will find information that is spot-on to current information on scientific research. The bottom line is the Bible is the ultimate source for information and is backed up not only spiritually but scientifically

  13. 2 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:

    3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

    4 If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days:

    We need to check our on skin occassionally, or we need to see how other people see us from time to time. Are representing the love of Jesus to people? Or are we presenting something that is not Christ-like? And are we spreading this to other people instead of love as well?

  14. Spiritual Leprosy
    What Am I Spreading?

    Psalms 139:23
    Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!

    The bacterium Mycobacterium leprae spreads leprosy. The condition is contagious, A person is five times more likely to contract the illness than another member of the population if they come into contact with someone with leprosy.

    Contagious only affected by the infected …….
    What am I Spreading..?

  15. Leprosy something considered real bad a decease
    That will have to checked on a weekly basis…( having to be brought to Priest, and him having to determined whether he is good to go or still sick( NOT CLEAN)
    ——-
    But now? AC, how do we handle this? SIN?
    Let us not wait, let us not carry it , let’s go to the GREAT physician and let’s get clean once and for all. And declare:
    FORGIVEN, FORGIVEN.!!! instead of unclean unclean….

  16. Leprosy in the Bible is a type and shadow, of sin. Sin is like leprosy in many ways. It starts out on the inside, but eventually works its way out to the outside. It starts out small, but soon covers the entire body. If not dealt with, it will also spread to other people. It causes us to be separated from God, and the people we love; and it will eventually kill us.

    Imagine for a moment if we had to declare ourselves unclean for the sin in our lives. As Bro Smith leads us, things we have done, said, thought and things we did not even know we have done… There is no wonder why Paul wrote to pray without ceasing. We are all sinners, so we should all be able to relate to this dreaded disease. Fortunately for us there is a cure, a cleansing for this spiritual leprosy that we are plagued with.

  17. 3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

    Thank you Jesus for His blood. As I was reading this I was like thank You Jesus for His blood!!! So I started thinking and realized that even though this is in the flesh in the spirit it must be the same thing. What we have in the spirit we are either clean or unclean. What are we spreading to others?!? Is it something clean or unclean? We have to keep in mind that what we have inside and speak it will either bring life or death. This is why it’s so important to pray without ceasing!!! Always having the Word of God in your mind, your mouth, so when we speak it’s LIFE.

  18. 1 Timothy 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.

    [33] And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
    [34] When ye be come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession;

    1 Timothy 6:7-16 KJV
    [7] For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. [8] And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. [9] But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. [10] For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. [11] But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. [12] Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. [13] I give thee charge in the sight of God, who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good confession; [14] That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: [15] Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; [16] Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

  19. The people with the leprosy had to go to the priest and the priest would tell them what kind of leprosy it was and how bad.
    This can be the same today as a pastor watches for our soul. Some things only the man of God in our lives can see because they are the spiritual covering over us. At times they will and must tell us what is clean and unclean in our lives.
    Thank God for the man of God in my life.

  20. iLove the Kingdom
    I read this today in a commentary and I couldn’t write it any more clearly then this.

    “The priest was required to conduct his examination with the greatest care, lest he should pronounce that to be leprosy which was not really so.

    How different this to the sweeping and hasty judgments that we pass on each other! We judge by appearances only, and are not especially concerned to judge righteously. Sin, of which leprosy is the type, is not a superficial disease; it is “deeper than the skin.”

  21. Thank you Jesus for your healing power that can heal any disease or sickness! I would have hated to be a priest and have to determine whether someone’s clean or unclean. God has all power and authority over every situation, if we are willing to give Him full control over our lives.

  22. Leviticus 13

    1 And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron, saying,

    2 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:

    3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

    4 If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days:

  23. Those that were found to have leprosy either starting on their flesh, or already manifesting on their flesh were sent to the priest for his examination. Under certain circumstances they were pronounced a leper and put outside the camp, or if other circumstances were present they were locked up for y days and the leprosy either manifested itself or whatever it was examined and declared not leprosy.

    There are times in our lives when we have to back out of situations to see what the real situation is. Sometimes stepping away, or backing up will reveal the true colors of an individual, or will reveal they have right motives and you can move forward.

    There are times too that for ourselves we have to back away and examine our motives to ensure that we are pure in heart.

    A time of self examination is always appropriate to ensure that we are still on the correct path.

  24. The Lord God is the great physician and he is teaching how to avoid disease from spreading, even covering the mouth so germs can’t spread airborne. There was much to learn about healthcare and it all took obedience because they had no knowledge of the origin and spread of disease unless they learned the hard way-by experience. I would rather obey and be safe.

  25. 59 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

    Seek ye first the Kingdom of God

    Keeping it clean. As i read this this morning, my thoughts were going to how we are the temple of God. And how in the old testament you were considered unclean until you went to the priest to be told if you were or were not unclean. Just as today, we are born into sin, we must go and prepare an alter to be cleansed and to give a sacrifice to God. And once we go to God and ask for forgivness and be washed by baptism in Jesus name, we are then clean. To seek after His Kingdom means to be washed by His blood and saved by His Spirit.

  26. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    TIME FOR REVELATION

    5 And the priest shall look on him the seventh day: and, behold, if the plague in his sight be at a stay, and the plague spread not in the skin; then the priest shall shut him up seven days more:

    We witness often what we call an overreaction to information. Saying that when we hear or see something we are prone to make a judgement call quickly, form an opinion and immediately create a conflict at least in our mind if not verbally or physically.

    I believe we find some great wisdom here in the fact of the Priest would look at the situation for 7 days. I believe we find great wisdom here to look at a situation for at least 7 days to see what happens. Manifest of healing or deeper infection.

    Lets exercise wisdom in grace and mercy.

  27. Leviticus 13
    (3) Rules on leprosy
    The caps 13 and 14 contain the laws that have to do with leprosy: how to recognize it and the treatment when it appears. The cap. 13 speaks of the recognition of leprosy in the skin of the body (vv. 1-28), in the head and in the face (vv. 29-49) and in textiles and leather (vv. 47-59). The cap. 14 deals with the purification of leprosy when it is on the skin (vv. 1-32) and at home (vv. 33-57).

    These mandates were given to Moses and Aaron, and not to the people in general, because the priest had the responsibility to discover leprosy and help them understand how to treat it. to. Leprosy on the skin of the body, 13: 1-28. This disease that translates leprosy does not seem to be the modern disease we call leprosy, but it is another type of skin disease. It seems that the term includes several skin diseases. They are not infectious diseases, nor do they bring death. So why is it so serious? In ancient times people considered leprosy as a disease without cure. He saw it as a punishment from God (or his pagan gods) and it was a very painful disease.

    A tradition of the rabbis says that leprosy is a punishment for sin. This is why they isolated the person as a symbol of repentance. The person with leprosy was ceremonially impure. In other words, he could not participate in the activities of religion and was separated from society

  29. 9 When the plague of leprosy is in a man, then he shall be brought unto the priest;

    Leprosy is a devastating disease and it doesn’t say how a man or women contracts it. We know their are cases such as Miriam and recovered miraculously when Gods anger subsided. One thing remains, and that’s the need for the priest to evaluate the person to deem them clean or unclean. Any disease that is determined to be unclean needs to be rid from among the people for risk of it going viral. Some problems either physical or spiritual can also become viral among the people. Thank God he cared enough to give a detailed way to deal with certain conditions to protect us from contracting dangerous sorts of plagues.

  30. Levitico 13 “LA LEPRA”

    * “Y éste lo mirará”
    Esta sección claramente muestra las reglas específicas para que el Sacerdote realizara un diagnóstico específico de lepra. Los detalles específicos en tan diversas situaciones enfatizan que Dios no quería que esto se realizara con conjeturas, sino que fuera el resultado de un cuidadoso diagnóstico. Un diagnóstico tan serio no debía de adivinarse.

    * ” Es lepra” La lepra era tratada con tanta seriedad debido a que era una enfermedad muy terrible.

    *También es una ilustración dramática del pecado y de la manera en que opera espiritualmente en los seres humanos.

    *Cuando la lepra aparece por primera vez en tu piel, aparece como pequeñas manchas rojas. Después de poco tiempo se hacen más grandes y empiezan a volverse blancas, con una apariencia blanca o brillosa. Muy pronto las manchas se esparcen por todo el cuerpo y el pelo comienza a caerse – primero de la cabeza, y después, aun de las cejas. Mientras las cosas empeoran, las uñas de las manos y de los pies se sueltan; comienzan a pudrirse y eventualmente se caen. Luego las uniones de los dedos y de los pies empiezan a pudrirse y se caen pedazo a pedazo. Las encías empiezas a encogerse hasta el punto que no pueden mantener los dientes, así que cada uno de ellos se pierde. La lepra continúa comiéndose la cara hasta que la nariz literalmente se pierde, y el paladar y hasta los ojos se pudren – y la víctima se echa a perder hasta que muere.

    *La lepra es como el pecado en muchos sentidos. Hay muy buenas razones del porque muchos antiguos rabinos consideraban a un leproso como si fuera alguien que ya estaba muerto. La lepra es como el pecado ya que:

    · Comienza como si fuera nada.

    · No produce dolor en su primera etapa.

    · Crece lentamente.

    · A menudo se estanca por un momento y luego regresa.

    · Adormece los sentidos – uno no puede sentir en el área afligida.

    · Causa decadencia y deformidad.

    · Le da a la persona una apariencia repulsiva.

    * “Estas precauciones no solamente eran tomadas por medidas sanitarias, o para guardarse del contagio, pues no había certeza de que la lepra fuera contagiosa, sino para que las personas pudieran ser enseñadas por la parábola de la lepra, lo terrible y repugnante que es el pecado a la vista de Dios.”

    *La lepra es como estar muerto en vida,
    es veneno para fuentes de agua, una corrupción en todo el sentido de la vida; esto lleva poco a poco al cuerpo entero a irse destruyendo , miembro por miembro decayendo y así ser desconectado del cuerpo.

  31. Leviticus 13:46, “All the days wherein the plague shall be in him, he shall be defiled; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his habitation be.”

    When a person was declared “leprous”, he was defiled (filthy, polluted, impure); he was unclean. He was separated from the others and had to dwell alone outside the camp.
    Leprosy is a symbol of sin. So when we sin, it defiles us; it makes us filthy, polluted, impure, and unclean. It causes us to be separated from God. (But your iniquities have separated between you and your God,.. Isaiah 59:2).

    So…
    Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
    And see if there be any wicked way in me,… (Psalms 139:23-24).

    Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. (Psalms 51:2).

  32. Thank God for his cleansing blood. Im so thankful that we only have to go to Jesus and ask forgivness and we don’t have to show leprosy or what kind of sin we have done we just go to the throne room.

  33. 2 When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot, and it be in the skin of his flesh like the plague of leprosy; then he shall be brought unto Aaron the priest, or unto one of his sons the priests:

    3 And the priest shall look on the plague in the skin of the flesh: and when the hair in the plague is turned white, and the plague in sight be deeper than the skin of his flesh, it is a plague of leprosy: and the priest shall look on him, and pronounce him unclean.

    4 If the bright spot be white in the skin of his flesh, and in sight be not deeper than the skin, and the hair thereof be not turned white; then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague seven days:

    There is so much wisdom in how the illness was examined. And this made me think of how we sometimes lack the wisdom to deal with issues and are not well thought out because we are too quick to act on it.
    I thank God for his patience toward me and the love in which he examines and deals with me rather than giving up on me.

  34. A bad attitude is like leprosy, it will spread if not confined and separated. A bad attitude will infect those around you and poison the whole church if you let it run free. You have to shut it up quickly and watch it carefully. It’s not impossible for it to be cured but it takes an intervention of the Holy Ghost to heal it.

  35. 46 All the days wherein the plague shall be in him he shall be defiled; he is unclean: he shall dwell alone; without the camp shall his habitation be.

    47 The garment also that the plague of leprosy is in, whether it be a woollen garment, or a linen garment;

    48 Whether it be in the warp, or woof; of linen, or of woollen; whether in a skin, or in any thing made of skin;

  36. 59 This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.

    Thanks be to our God and savior Jesus which has paid the price and shed His blood that we may not be late for that.

  37. “The priest is to examine the sore on the skin, and if the hair in the sore has turned white and the sore appears to be more than skin deep, it is a defiling skin disease. When the priest examines that person, he shall pronounce them ceremonially unclean.”
    ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭13:3‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    Aaron and his sons, were responsible for declaring an individual or garment clean or unclean. They were literally mandated by God and what they said went, no questions asked, it was either clean or wasn’t.

    God has given us a Pastor to do the same, to call us out when we are clean or unclean, it’s his job to protect the entire body. But when he does and we just aren’t having it we want to pitch a fit and mope around, “how dare he say I’m out of line,” or “who does he think he is?” How about we take a step back and understand he’s not isolating you out of spite or for the heck of it, he’s doing it out of love. Get your dirty self in line, isolate yourself as instructed, and get yourself back into clean condition.

  38. “This is the law of the plague of leprosy in a garment of woollen or linen, either in the warp, or woof, or any thing of skins, to pronounce it clean, or to pronounce it unclean.”
    ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭13:59‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    https://www.bible.com/1/lev.13.59.kjv

    Throughout this chapter the people and the premiers work together.
    Anything the people see is unclean or even question it to be unclean they bring it to their priest then the final call is made by the priest.
    Same thing in today’s church, we should speak up to our Pastor. We should also listen closely to him when he speaks about something being unclean with a dirty spirit. Those spirits can be drawn to those that are living right. They will find the nearest host and continue on the chaos. “For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.”
    ‭‭Mark‬ ‭5:8-9‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    https://www.bible.com/1/mrk.5.8-9.kjv

    This is the importance of being prayed up and being sensitive to the Spirit of God.

  39. This chapter clearly shows the very specific rules for making a specific diagnosis of leprosy. The specific details given in so many different situations emphasize that God did not want this to be guesswork but the result of careful examination. Such a serious diagnosis should not be guessed.
    Leprosy was dealt with so seriously because it was such a horrible disease, and it was also a dramatic picture of sin and its spiritual operation in human beings.

    When leprosy first appears on a victim’s skin, it begins as small, red spots. Before too long they get bigger, and start to turn white, with a shiny or scaly appearance. Pretty soon the spots spread over the entire body and the hair begins to fall out, first from the head, then even from the eyebrows. As things get worse, the finger nails and toenails become loose; they start to rot and eventually fall off. Then the joints of fingers and toes begin to rot and start to fall off piece by piece. The gums start shrinking and can’t hold teeth anymore, so each of them is lost. Leprosy keeps eating away at the face until the nose is literally lost, and the palate and even eyes rot – and the victim wastes away until death.
    Leprosy is like sin in many ways. There are some good reasons why many ancient rabbis considered a leper as someone already dead. Leprosy is like sin in that:

    · It begins as nothing.
    · It is painless in its first stages.
    · It grows slowly.
    · It often remits for a while and then returns.
    · It numbs the senses – one cannot feel in the afflicted area.
    · It causes decay and deformity.
    · It gives a person a repulsive appearance.
    These precautions were taken not merely for sanitary reasons, or to guard against contagion, for it is not certain that leprosy was contagious, but in order that the people might be taught through the parable of leprosy, what a fearful and loathsome thing sin is in the sight of God.
    Leprosy was indeed nothing short of a living death, a poisoning of the springs, a corrupting of all the humours of life; a dissolution little by little of the whole body, so that one limb after another actually decayed and fell away.
    Once the diagnosis of leprosy was confirmed, everything changed for the leper. They lived in a perpetual state of mourning and in a perpetual state of public disgrace (he shall… cry “Unclean! Unclean!”). Furthermore, they lived in a perpetual state of isolation (he shall dwell alone).
    As stringent as all this was, eventually they Jews went further. In the days of Jesus many Jews thought two things about a leper: You are the walking dead and you deserve this because this is the punishment of God against you.
    Jewish custom said that you should not even greet a leper, and you had to stay six feet away from a leper. One Rabbi bragged that he would not even buy an egg on a street where he saw a leper, and another boasted that he threw rocks at lepers to keep them far from him. Rabbis didn’t even allow a leper to wash his face.
    But Jesus was different. He loved lepers; He touched them and healed them when they had no hope at all.

    “When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭8:1-4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    “And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.”
    ‭‭Luke‬ ‭17:12-19‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  40. 59“These are the instructions for dealing with mildew that contaminates woolen or linen clothing or fabric or anything made of leather. This is how the priest will determine whether these items are ceremonially clean or unclean.”

    Physically one had to be fit and clean, with no blemishes. Anything you touch is considered contaminated. Today, in actions can contaminate those around you. How are you affecting those around you? Lets show a holy appearance to others, and it will influence those around you to be more Christ like.
