12:1 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,
12:2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, If a woman hath
conceived seed, and borne a male-child; then she shall be
unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for
her infirmity shall she be unclean.
12:3 And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be
12:4 And she shall then continue in the blood of her purifying
three and thirty days: she shall touch no hallowed thing, nor
come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying be
12:5 But if she shall bear a female-child, then she shall be
unclean two weeks, as in her separation: and she shall continue
in the blood of her purifying sixty six days.
12:6 And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a
son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first
year for a burnt-offering, and a young pigeon, or a
turtle-dove, for a sin-offering, to the door of the tabernacle
of the congregation, to the priest;
12:7 Who shall offer it before the LORD, and make an atonement
for her; and she shall be cleansed from the issue of her blood.
This [is] the law for her that hath borne a male or a female.
12:8 And if she shall not be able to bring a lamb, then she
shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the
burnt-offering, and the other for a sin-offering: and the
priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.
