Leviticus 13:11

it is an old leprosy on the skin of his body. The priest shall pronounce him unclean, and shall not isolate him, for he is unclean.

അതു അവന്റെ ത്വക്കിൽ പഴകിയ കുഷ്ഠം ആകുന്നു; പുരോഹിതൻ അവനെ അശുദ്ധൻ എന്നു വിധിക്കേണം; അവൻ അശുദ്ധനാകകൊണ്ടു അവനെ അകത്താക്കി അടെക്കരുതു.

Luke 5:12

And it happened when He was in a certain city, that behold, a man who was full of leprosy saw Jesus; and he fell on his face and implored Him, saying, "Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean."

അവൻ ഒരു പട്ടണത്തിൽ ഇരിക്കുമ്പോൾ കുഷ് ം നിറഞ്ഞോരു മനുഷ്യൻ യേശുവിനെ കണ്ടു കവിണ്ണു വീണു: കർത്താവേ, നിനക്കു മനസ്സുണ്ടെങ്കിൽ എന്നെ ശുദ്ധമാക്കുവാൻ കഴിയും എന്നു അവനോടു അപേക്ഷിച്ചു.

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.
