Leviticus 12



1 And Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,

2 Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, A woman if she have received seed and given·​·birth·​·to a male, then she shall be·​·unclean seven days; according·​·to the days of the isolation of 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 dwell in the bloods* of her cleansing three days and thirty days; all that is holy she shall not touch, and into the sanctuary she shall not come, until the days of her cleansing be fulfilled.

5 But if she give·​·birth·​·to a female, then she shall be·​·unclean two·​·weeks, as in her isolation; and sixty days and six days she shall dwell upon the bloods of her cleansing.

6 And when the days of her cleansing are·​·fulfilled, for a son or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb, a son of his year, for a burnt·​·offering, and a young dove, or a turtledove, for a sin offering, to the entrance of the Tabernacle of the congregation, to the priest;

7 and he shall offer it before Jehovah, 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 given·​·birth·​·to a male or a female.

8 And if her hand find not enough for a lamb, then she shall take two turtledoves, or two young doves; one for a burnt·​·offering, and one for a sin offering; and the priest shall make· an ·atonement for her, and she shall be·​·clean.
