This is the statute of the law which Jehovah has commanded, saying, Speak to▵ the sons of Israel, that they fetch to▵ thee a perfect red she··calf, wherein◦ is no blemish, and upon which a yoke has not gone··up;
And a man◦ who is clean shall gather the ashes of the she··calf, and place them outside the camp in a clean place, and it shall be for the congregation of the sons of Israel for the keeping of◦ the water of isolation; it◦ is a purging.
And he who gathers the ashes of the she··calf shall wash his garments, and be··unclean until the evening; and it shall be to the sons of Israel, and to the sojourner who sojourns among▵ them, for an eternal statute.
Whoever touches one dead, as to the soul of man who is dying, and purges not himself, makes··unclean the Habitation of Jehovah, and that◦ soul shall be cut··off from Israel, for the water of isolation was not sprinkled upon him; he shall be unclean; his uncleanness is still on◦ him.
and a clean man◦ shall take hyssop, and dip it in the water, and spatter it upon the Tabernacle, and upon all the vessels, and upon the souls who were there, and upon him who touched a bone, or one slain, or one dead, or a grave;
and the one clean shall spatter on the unclean on the third day, and on the seventh day; and on the seventh day he shall purge himself, and wash his garments, and bathe himself in water, and shall be··clean at the evening.
And a man◦ who shall··be··unclean, and shall not purge himself, even▵ that◦ soul shall be cut··off from the midst of the assembly, for the sanctuary of Jehovah he has made··unclean; the water of isolation has not been sprinkled upon him; he◦ is unclean.
And it shall be an eternal statute to them that he who spatters the water of the isolation shall wash his garments; and he who touches the water of the isolation shall be··unclean until the evening.
