Leviticus 13:42

And if there is on the bald head or bald forehead a reddish-white sore, it is leprosy breaking out on his bald head or his bald forehead.

പിൻ കഷണ്ടിയിലോ മുൻ കഷണ്ടിയിലോ ചുവപ്പോടുകൂടിയ വെള്ളപ്പുള്ളിയുണ്ടായാൽ അതു അവന്റെ പിൻ കഷണ്ടിയിലോ മുൻ കഷണ്ടിയിലോ ഉത്ഭവിക്കുന്ന കുഷ്ടം.

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.

Leviticus 13:25

then the priest shall examine it; and indeed if the hair of the bright spot has turned white, and it appears deeper than the skin, it is leprosy broken out in the burn. Therefore the priest shall pronounce him unclean. It is a leprous sore.

പുരോഹിതൻ അതു നോക്കേണം; പുള്ളിയിലെ രോമം വെള്ളയായി തീർന്നു ത്വക്കിനെക്കാൾ കുഴിഞ്ഞുകണ്ടാൽ പൊള്ളലിൽ ഉണ്ടായ കുഷ്ഠം; ആകയാൽ പുരോഹിതൻ അവനെ അശുദ്ധനെന്നു വിധിക്കേണം; അതു കുഷ്ഠലക്ഷണം തന്നേ.
