bring her forth without the camp, and [one] shall slay her
before his face:
19:4 And Eleazar the priest shall take of her blood with his
finger, and sprinkle of her blood directly before the
tabernacle of the congregation seven times:
19:5 And [one] shall burn the heifer in his sight; her skin, and
her flesh, and her blood, with her dung, shall he burn:
19:6 And the priest shall take cedar-wood, and hyssop, and
scarlet, and cast [it] into the midst of the burning of the

his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp,
and the priest shall be unclean until the evening.

and bathe his flesh in water, and shall be unclean until the

heifer, and lay [them] without the camp in a clean place, and

Israel, for a water of separation: it [is] a purification for

his clothes, and be unclean until the evening: and it shall be
to the children of Israel, and to the stranger that sojourneth
among them, for a statute for ever.
19:11 He that toucheth the dead body of any man shall be unclean
19:12 He shall purify himself with it on the third day, and on
the seventh day he shall be clean: but if he shall not purify
himself the third day, then the seventh day he shall not be
19:13 Whoever toucheth the dead body of any man that is dead,
and purifieth not himself, defileth the tabernacle of the LORD;
and that soul shall be cut off from Israel: because the water
of separation was not sprinkled upon him, he shall be unclean;
his uncleanness [is] yet upon him.
19:14 This [is] the law, when a man dieth in a tent: all that
come into the tent, and all that [is] in the tent, shall be
unclean seven days.

it, [is] unclean.

open fields, or a dead body, or a bone of a man, or a grave,
shall be unclean seven days.
19:17 And for an unclean [person] they shall take of the ashes
of the burnt heifer of purification for sin, and running water
shall be put to it in a vessel:
19:18 And a clean person shall take hyssop, and dip [it] in the
water, and sprinkle [it] upon the tent, and upon all the
vessels, and upon the persons that were there, and upon him
that touched a bone, or one slain, or one dead, or a grave:
