Leviticus 13:34

On the seventh day the priest shall examine the scale; and indeed if the scale has not spread over the skin, and does not appear deeper than the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean. He shall wash his clothes and be clean.

ഏഴാം ദിവസം പുരോഹിതൻ പുറ്റു നോക്കേണം; പുറ്റു ത്വക്കിന്മേൽ പരക്കാതെയും കാഴ്ചെക്കു ത്വക്കിനെക്കാൾ കുഴിഞ്ഞിരിക്കാതെയും ഇരുന്നാൽ പുരോഹിതൻ അവനെ ശുദ്ധിയുള്ളവനെന്നു വിധിക്കേണം; അവൻ വസ്ത്രം അലക്കി ശുദ്ധിയുള്ളവനായിരിക്കേണം.

But if the scale should at all spread over the skin after his cleansing,

എന്നാൽ അവന്റെ ശുദ്ധീകരണത്തിന്റെ ശേഷം പുറ്റു ത്വക്കിന്മേൽ പരന്നാൽ
