Leviticus 13:30

then the priest shall examine the sore; and indeed if it appears deeper than the skin, and there is in it thin yellow hair, then the priest shall pronounce him unclean. It is a scaly leprosy of the head or beard.

അതു ത്വക്കിനെക്കാൾ കുഴിഞ്ഞും അതിൽ പൊൻ നിറമായ നേർമ്മയുള്ള രോമം ഉള്ളതായും കണ്ടാൽ പുരോഹിതൻ അവനെ അശുദ്ധനെന്നു വിധിക്കേണം; അതു പുറ്റാകുന്നു; തലയിലോ താടിയിലോ ഉള്ള കുഷ്ഠം തന്നേ.

Mark 1:42

As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.

യേശു അവനെ അമർച്ചയായി ശാസിച്ചു:

Leviticus 14:3

And the priest shall go out of the camp, and the priest shall examine him; and indeed, if the leprosy is healed in the leper,

പുരോഹിതൻ പാളയത്തിന്നു പുറത്തുചെല്ലേണം; കുഷ്ഠരോഗിയുടെ കുഷ്ഠം സുഖമായി എന്നു പുരോഹിതൻ കണ്ടാൽ ശുദ്ധീകരണം കഴിവാനുള്ളവന്നുവേണ്ടി ജീവനും ശുദ്ധിയുള്ള രണ്ടു പക്ഷി, ദേവദാരു, ചുവപ്പുനൂൽ, ഈ സോപ്പു എന്നിവയെ കൊണ്ടുവരുവാൻ കല്പിക്കേണം.
