Leviticus 13:13

കുഷ്ഠം അവന്റെ ദേഹത്തെ മുഴുവനും മൂടിയിരുന്നാൽ അവൻ വടുവുള്ളവനെ ശുദ്ധിയുള്ളവനെന്നു വിധിക്കേണം; ആസകാലം വെള്ളയായി തീർന്നു; അവൻ ശുദ്ധിയുള്ളവൻ ആകുന്നു.

Luke 5:13

Then He put out His hand and touched him, saying, "I am willing; be cleansed." Immediately the leprosy left him.

യേശു കൈ നീട്ടി അവനെ തൊട്ടു: എനിക്കു മനസ്സുണ്ടു; ശുദ്ധമാക എന്നു പറഞ്ഞു. ഉടനെ കുഷ് ം വിട്ടു മാറി.
