¶ And the LORD spake Unto Moses and said: speak unto the children of Israel and say: when a woman hath conceived and hath borne a man child, she shall be unclean seven days: even in like manner as when she is put apart in time of her natural disease. And in the eighth day the flesh of the child's foreskin shall be cut away. And she shall continue in the blood of her purifying thirty three days, she shall twitch no hallowed thing nor come in to the sanctuary, until the time of her purifying be out. If she bear a maidchild, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as when she hath her natural disease. And she shall continue in the blood of her purifying sixty six days.
¶ And when the days of her purifying are out: whether it be a son or a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of one year old for a burntoffering and a young pigeon or a turtledove for a sinoffering unto the door of the tabernacle of witness unto the priest: which shall offer them before the LORD, and make an atonement for her, and so she shall be purged of her issue of blood. This is the law of her that hath borne a child, whether it be male or female. But and if she be not able to bring a sheep, then let her bring two turtles or two young pigeons: the one for the burntoffering, and the other for the sinoffering. And the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.
