1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying:

2 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them: If a woman having received seed shall bear a man child, she shall be unclean seven days, according to the days of the separation of her flowers.

3 And on the eighth day the infant shall be circumcised:

4 But she shall remain three and thirty days in the blood of her purification. She shall touch no holy thing, neither shall she enter into the sanctuary, until the days of her purification be fulfilled.

5 But if she shall bear a maid child, she shall be unclean two weeks, according to the custom of her monthly courses, and she shall remain in the blood of her purification sixty-six days.

6 And when the days of her purification are expired, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring to the door of the tabernacle of the testimony, a lamb of a year old for a holocaust, and a young pigeon or a turtle for sin, and shall deliver them to the priest:

7 Who shall offer them before the Lord, and shall pray for her, and so she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood. This is the law for her that beareth a man child or a maid child.

8 And if her hand find not sufficiency, and she is not able to offer a lamb, she shall take two turtles, or two young pigeons, one for a holocaust, and another for sin: and the priest shall pray for her, and so she shall be cleansed.

Explanation of Leviticus 12      

Napsal(a) Henry MacLagan

Verses 1-2. Instruction is given to the man of the church that in the insemination, conception and birth of truth with him there is impurity in the proprium, and purity internally, even as is the case in the course of regeneration

Verses 3-4. But when the state of regeneration is completed there is purity even in the ultimate; and this state of purification is accomplished according to the laws of Order.

Verse 5. Also in the reception and acknowledgement of good the state of purification involves the conjunction of good with truth, and is according to the laws of Order

Verses 6-8. And when the state of purification and regeneration is completed, then the Lord will be worshiped from the good of innocence; there will be reconciliation with the Lord, or of the External with the Internal; and this takes place both with celestial and spiritual men.
