Then Jehovah spoke to Moses, saying,
Speak to the children of Israel, saying, If a 1woman
conceives seed and bears a male child, then she shall be unclean 2seven
days; as in the days of her menstruation, she shall be unclean.
And on the 1eighth
day the flesh of his foreskin shall be acircumcised
And she shall remain in the blood of her
-three days; she shall not touch any 2sanctified
thing, nor come into the 2sanctuary
, until the days of her purifying are fulfilled.
But if she bears a female, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her impurity; and she shall remain in the blood of her
purifying sixty-six days.
And when the days of her apurifying
are fulfilled, for a son or for a daughter, she shall bring a year old blamb
for a 1burnt
offering, and a young pigeon or a turtledove for a 1sin
offering to the priest to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting.
And he shall present it before Jehovah and make expiation for her, and she shall be cleansed from the flow of her blood. This is the law for her who bears a child, whether male or female.
And if she cannot afford a lamb, then she shall take atwo
turtledoves or two young pigeons, one for a burnt offering and the other for a sin offering. And the priest shall make expiation for her, and she shall be clean.
