CHAPTER 14

Leviticus 14:1-57

Lev 14:1 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses to say, 2 This, she shall be the Torah of the leper in the day of his cleansing: And shall be brought to the Priest: 3 And the Priest shall go to outside of the Camp; and the Priest shall look, and behold, the plague of the leprosy is healed from the leper; 4 And the Priest shall command and take for cleansing two living clean birds, and cedar wood, and crimson worm, and hyssop: 5 And the Priest shall command and shall slaughter ta-the one bird to an earthen vessel upon living (running) water: 6 shall take her, ta-the living bird, and ta-the cedar wood, and ta-the worm of the crimson, and ta the hyssop, and shall dip them, and ta the living bird in the blood of the slaughtered bird upon the living (running) water: 7 And shall sprinkle upon the one to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall make him clean, and shall send ta-the living bird upon the face of the field. 8 And shall wash the one to be cleansed of ta-his garments, and shall shave ta-all his hair, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be clean: and afterward, shall come to the Camp, and shall be outside of his tent seven days. 9 And shall be, on the seventh day, shall shave ta-all his hair, ta-his head, and ta-his beard and ta the brows his eyes, and ta-all his hair shall be shaved: and shall wash ta-his garments, and shall bathe ta-his flesh in the water, and shall be clean.

10 And on the eighth day, shall take two he lambs, perfect ones, and one ewe lamb of a perfect daughter of a year, and three tenths of flour of a Food Offering mixed in the oil, and one log of oil. 11 And the Priest that is cleansing shall stand ta the man that is to be cleansed, and them to the Face of hwhy at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment: 12 And the Priest shall take ta-the one he lamb, and shall bring him for a Guilt Offering, and ta-the log of the oil, and wave them of a Wave Offering to the Face of hwhy: 13 And shall slaughter ta-the lamb in the place where ta-the Sin Offering and ta-the Elevation Offering shall be killed in the place of the Sanctuary: for as the Sin Offering, he is the Guilt Offering for the Priest: he is a Holy of Holies: 14 And the Priest shall take from the blood of the Guilt Offering, and the Priest shall put upon the tip of the right ear of the one to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the thumb of his right foot: 15 And the Priest shall take from the log of the oil, and pour upon the left palm of the Priest: 16 And the Priest shall dip ta-his right finger from the oil that is in his left palm, and shall sprinkle from the oil on his finger seven times to the Face of hwhy: 17 And with the rest of the oil that upon his palm, the Priest shall put upon the tip of the right ear of the one to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the thumb of his right foot upon the blood of the Guilt Offering: 18 And the rest among the oil that is upon the palm of the Priest, shall put upon the head of the one to be cleansed: and the Priest shall atone upon him to the Face of hwhy. 19 And the Priest shall make ta-the Sin Offering and shall atone upon the one to be cleansed from his uncleanness; and afterward, shall slaughter ta-the Elevation Offering: 20 And the Priest shall elevate ta-the Elevation Offering and ta-the Food (Grain) Offering to the Altar: and the Priest shall atone upon him, and shall be clean.

21 And if he is poor, and cannot attain; and shall take one lamb of a Guilt Offering for a Wave Offering to atone upon him, and one tenth of flour mixed in the oil for a Food (Grain) Offering, and a log of oil; 22 And two turtledoves or two sons of a dove which his hand, she can attain; and one shall be for a Sin Offering, and the one for an Elevation Offering. 23 And shall bring them on the eighth day to the Priest for his cleansing to the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment to the Face of
hwhy. 24 And the Priest shall take ta-the lamb of the Guilt Offering and ta-the log of the oil, and the Priest shall wave them of a Wave Offering to the Face of hwhy: 25 And shall slaughter ta-the lamb of the Guilt Offering, and the Priest shall take from the blood of the Guilt Offering, and shall put upon the tip of his right ear of the one to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the thumb of his right foot: 26 And the Priest shall pour from the oil upon the left palm of the Priest: 27 And the Priest shall sprinkle on the right finger from the oil which is upon his left palm seven times to the Face of hwhy: 28 And the Priest shall put from the oil which is upon his palm upon the tip of the right ear of the one to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the thumb of his right foot upon the place of the blood of the Guilt Offering: 29 And the rest from the oil that is upon the palm of the Priest shall put upon the head of the one to be cleansed to atone upon him to the Face of hwhy. 30 And shall offer ta-the one from the turtledoves, or from the sons of a dove which his hand, she can attain; 31 ta which his hand, she shall reach ta-the one of a Sin Offering, and ta-the one of an Elevation Offering upon the Food (Grain) Offering: and the Priest shall atone upon the one to be cleansed to the Face of hwhy. 32 This is the Torah which is on him a plague of leprosy which his hand, she shall not reach in his cleansing.

33 And hwhy spoke to Moses and to Aaron to say, 34 When you come to the land of Canaan which I am giving to you for a possession, and I have put a plague of leprosy on the house of the land of your possession; 35 and whoever is to him the house, shall come and tell to the Priest to say, Is as a plague is seen by me in the house: 36 And the Priest shall command, and they shall face ta-the house before the Priest shall come to see ta-the plague, and not shall be unclean any that is in the house: and after thus, the Priest shall come to see ta-the house: 37 And shall look at ta-the plague, and behold, the plague is in the walls of the house of yellowish green or reddish hollow strakes, and their appearance is lower from the wall; 38 And the Priest shall go out from the house to the entrance of the house, and shall shut up ta-the house seven days: 39 And the Priest shall return on the seventh day, and shall look: and behold, the plague has spread on the walls of the house; 40 And the Priest shall command, and they will pull off ta-the stones which the plague is on them, and shall cast them to outside of the city to an unclean place: 41 And ta-the house shall be scraped housingward all around, and they shall pour out ta-the dust that they scraped off to outside of the city to an unclean place: 42 And they shall take other stones, and shall bring to the place of the stones; and shall take other morter, and shall plaster ta-the house.

43 And if the plague shall return and breaks out in the house after was pulled off
ta-the stones, and after the scraping of ta-the house, and after the plastering; 44 and the Priest shall come and look, and behold, the plague has spread in the house, she is a leprosy with fretting on the house: he is unclean. 45 And shall tear down ta-the house: ta-his stones, and ta-his wood, and ta all the morter of the house; and shall be taken to outside of the city to an unclean place. 46 And the one going to the house all the days that has shut him up, shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 47 And the one lying in the house shall wash ta-his garments; and the one eating in the house shall wash ta-his garments.

48 And if the Priest coming, shall come and look, and behold, the plague has not spead in the house after the plastering of 
ta-the house: and the Priest shall make ta-the house clean, for the plague has been healed.

49 And shall take to cleanse ta-the house two birds, and cedar wood, and worm of the crimson, and hyssop: 50 And shall slaughter ta-the one bird to an earthen vessel upon living (running) water: 51 And shall take ta-the cedar wood, and ta-the hyssop, and ta the worm of the crimson, and ta the living bird, and shall dip them in the blood of the slaughtered bird and in the living water, and shall sprinkle to the house seven times: 52 And shall cleanse ta-the house on the blood of the bird, and on the living water, and on the living bird, and on the cedar wood, and on the hyssop, and on the the worm of the crimson: 53 And shall send out ta-the living bird to outside of the city to the face of the field, and shall atone upon the house: and shall be clean. 54 This is the Torah for every plague of the leprosy, and for the scall, 55 and for a leprosy of the garment, and for a house, 56 and for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot: 57 To teach in the day that is unclean, and in the day that is clean: this is the Torah of the leprosy.


(NOTE: Not all verses will have comments)


This is a continuation from chapters twelve and thirteen in last week's Torah portion of Thazria.



Verses one through nine

1 And hwhy spoke to Moses to say, 2 This, she shall be the Torah of the leper in the day of his cleansing: And shall be brought to the Priest: 3 And the Priest shall go to outside of the Camp; and the Priest shall look, and behold, the plague of the leprosy is healed from the leper; 4 And the Priest shall command and take for cleansing two living clean birds, and cedar wood, and crimson worm, and hyssop: 5 And the Priest shall command and shall slaughter ta-the one bird to an earthen vessel upon living (running) water: 6 shall take her, ta-the living bird, and ta-the cedar wood, and ta-the worm of the crimson, and ta the hyssop, and shall dip them, and ta the living bird in the blood of the slaughtered bird upon the living (running) water: 7 And shall sprinkle upon the one to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall make him clean, and shall send ta-the living bird upon the face of the field. 8 And shall wash the one to be cleansed of ta-his garments, and shall shave ta-all his hair, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be clean: and afterward, shall come to the Camp, and shall be outside of his tent seven days. 9 And shall be, on the seventh day, shall shave ta-all his hair, ta-his head, and ta-his beard and ta the brows his eyes, and ta-all his hair shall be shaved: and shall wash ta-his garments, and shall bathe ta-his flesh in the water, and shall be clean.

The items the Priest used in this week's Torah portion passage have symbolic meanings:

THE TWO BIRDS
The one killed:
Yeshua being crucified.
The One Released: Our sins flying away and not to be returned.

Crimson thread: The blood of Yeshua.
Cedar Wood: The cross on which Yeshua was crucified.
Hyssop: Cleansing, an act of atonement for our sins.
Living Water: Water of life/Baptsim of water
Seven Times: Finished work (forgivness)/Each day of the seven Kingdom days (7000 years)

These are the same three items we find in the Torah of the red heifer, and it is located in the Torah portion of Khukath, in the book of Numbers

Numbers 19:1 And hwhy spoke to Moses and to Aaron to say, 2 this is the Statute of the Torah that hwhy commanded to say: Speak to the Sons of Israel, and they shall bring to you a perfect red heifer which has not blemish in her which has not been elevated a yoke upon her. 3 And you shall give her to Eleazar, the Priest, and the bringing of her to outside of the Camp, and shall kill her toward His Face. 4 And shall take Eleazar, the Priest, from her blood among his finger and shall sprinkle to toward the face of the Tent of Appointment of her blood seven times. 5 And shall burn ta-the heifer to His Eyes; ta-her skin, and ta-her flesh, and ta-her blood, shall burn upon her dung. 6 And the Priest shall take cedar wood, and hyssop, and the worm of the crimson, and shall be cast to the midst of the burning of the heifer. 7 And the Priest shall wash his garments and shall bathe his flesh in the water, and afterward shall come to the Camp, and the Priest shall be unclean until the mixing (evening).

There is another item mentioned on this week's Torah portion passage, and it is "living water". This is its symbolic meaning:

Living Water: Yeshua, the Water of Life.

Yeshua revealed Himself as the Water of Life to the Samaritan woman at the well, and it is noted in the Gospel of John

John 4:5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar [a.k.a. Shechem], near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son, Joseph. 6 Now Jacob's well was there. Yeshua therefore, being wearied with His journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. 7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Yeshua saith unto her, Give Me to drink. 8 (For His disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.) 9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto Him, How is it that Thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. 10 Yeshua answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of hwhy, and who it is that saith to thee, Give Me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of Him, and He would have given thee Living Water. 11 The woman saith unto Him, Sir, Thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast Thou that Living Water? 12 Art Thou greater than our father, Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13 Yeshua answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14 But whosoever drinketh of the Water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the Water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of Water springing up into everlasting life.

and the apostle John noted those in Messiah as Brides in Messiah to drink the Water of Life famously sung by the family group, Zemer Levav. It is noted in the book of Revelation

Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the Water of Life freely.

meaning Yeshua, the Bridegroom, is the Water of Life.

In verse eight, the man has to shave all of his hair. This is done, so that anything related to the plague on his hair will not be on him. This is comparable to Joseph being shaved before meeting Pharaoh, and it is noted in the Torah portion of Mikeyts, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 41:14 And Pharaoh sent and called ta-Joseph, and they hurried from the dungeon: and shaved, and changed his clothing, and came to Pharaoh.

Bill Cloud of Shoreshim Ministries noted that when Joseph was shaved, he did not just have his beard shaved, but all of his hair from the top of his head to his feet. This account of Joseph was also symbolic of putting off his old self, and being a new person, to become the Vicroy of Egypt.

T
hese are the possible symbolic meanings of a man shaving his body:

Man shaving his hair the first time: Putting off the old self and to be a new man, based on the apostle Paul's letters to the assembly in Ephesus, Corinth and Colossia

Ephesians 4:21 If so be that ye have heard Him, and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Yeshua: 22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after hwhy is created in righteousness and true holiness.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Colossians 3:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; 10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created Him:

Man shaving his hair the second time: Being cleansed by the water of the Word and being filled with the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit)




Verses ten through thirty two

This week's Torah portion passage is relevent to the Elevation Offering from the Torah portion of Va-Yikra, in the book of Leviticus in chapter one, and last week's Torah portion of Thazria, in the book of Leviticus in chapter twelve where the offerings are based on one's financial capabability. The one example given was Joseph and Mary
after her forty day unclean period was over had brought two turtledoves, or two sons of a dove for her Torah requirement, revealing their financial status as being poor.

Looking at the symbolic meanings of the offering requirements:

Eighth day: New beginnings
Two male lambs and one female lamb: Yeshua, the Sacrifice Lamb
Flour mixed in oil: Yeshua filled with the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit)
Log of oil: The Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit)


Notice that the one being cleansed from the leprosy is getting the blood and the oil by the Priest in the same locations that the Priests were getting from Moses when the Priests were sacrificing for the start of their service at the Tent of Appointment, as noted in the Torah portion of Tsav, in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 8:22 And brought forth ta-the second ram of the Ram of the Consecration: and Aaron and his sons, they laid ta-their hands upon the head of the ram, 23 and was slaughtered; and Moses took from his blood, and put upon the tip of right ear of Aaron, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the thumb of his right foot. 24 And brought ta-the sons of Aaron near, and Moses put from the blood, upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the thumb of their right foot: and Moses sprinkled ta-the blood upon the Altar all around.

The following list contain the symbols of the body parts of the former leper:

GENERAL:
Tip of the Ear: Hearing the Word
Thumb of the Right Hand: Doing the Word
Thumb of the Right Foot: Walking in the Word

Also, the blood and the oil that were applied to the former leper have symbolic meanings:

The Blood: Yeshua
The Oil: The Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit)

The following list contains symbolic meanings in which these two items were applied to the former leper:

WITH THE BLOOD OF THE GUILT OFFERING:

The Blood: Yeshua
Blood on the Tip of the Ear:
Yeshua covering his hearing of the Word
Blood on the Thumb of the Right Hand: Yeshua covering his doing of the Word
Blood on the Thumb of the Right Foot: Yeshua covering his walking in the Word


WITH THE OIL FROM THE LOG:

Oil: The Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit)
Oil on the Tip of the Ear:
The Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) motivates his hearing of the Word
Oil on the Thumb of the Right Hand: The Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) involved his doing of the Word
Oil on the Thumb of the Right Foot: The Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) involved his walking in the Word

The former leper was to symbolically listen, do, and walk in the Word through these symbolic acts at his body part locations. Just like Aaron and his sons were given by Moses before they were to do their priestly acts,
because the right side is considered the strong side, like the right arm is stronger than the left arm.

The right side also refers to Yeshua being at the Right Hand of the Father as noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 26:64 Yeshua saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of Man sitting on the Right Hand of power, and coming in the clouds of the heavens.

Yeshua is on the right side of the Father.

In verse sixteen, the Priest was to sprinkle oil on the Altar seven times, as compared to when a Priest normally sprinkles blood from certain sacrifices on the Altar seven times.

Looking at the word LOG

The Hebrew word for log is "lohg"- Lamed, Gimel (
gl). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3849, and its definition

From an unused root apparently meaning to deepen or hollow (like H3537); a log or measure for liquids: - log [of oil].

This is where we get our modern English word "log".

Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries noted that being cleansed is like being resurrected from the dead, and that Yeshua brought dead flesh to life.

In the Gospel of Luke, Yeshua was visited by two of John the Immerser's disciples. The Immerser's men went to ask if Yeshua was the one that was to come, and it is noted in the Gospel of Luke

Luke 7:19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Yeshua, saying, Art Thou he that should come? or look we for another? 20 When the men were come unto Him, they said, John the Immerser hath sent us unto Thee, saying, Art Thou he that should come, or look we for another? 21 And in that same hour He cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind He gave sight. 22 Then Yeshua answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the Gospel is preached. 23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in Me.

Monte Judah related the killed bird for the leper to Yeshua being sacrificed at the cross. Also, Monte related the living bird released to having our sins flee away, like Yeshua removing our sins as far as the east and west, as hinted in the book of the Psalms

Psalms 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.



In the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant), Yeshua healed lepers during his ministry. One of them is located in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 8:1 When He was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. 2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshippedHim, saying, Lord, if Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean. 3 And Yeshua put forth His Hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Yeshua saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the Priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

This leper was most likely to be Simon the Leper mentioned later, in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 26:6 Now when Yeshua was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the Leper, 7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on His head, as He sat at meat. 8 But when His disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste? 9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. 10 When Yeshua understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon Me. 11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always. 12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on My Body, she did it for my burial. 13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this Gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a Memorial of her.

If this is so, this would be the account of Simon, noted in the Gospels of Matthew and Mark

Matthew 8:2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, if Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean. 3 And Yeshua put forth His Hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Yeshua saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the Priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

Mark 1:40 And there came a leper to Him, beseeching Him, and kneeling down to Him, and saying unto Him, If Thou wilt, Thou canst make me clean. 41 And 
Yeshua, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. 42 And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed. 43 And He straitly charged him, and forthwith sent him away; 44 And saith unto him, See thou say nothing to any man: but go thy way, shew thyself to the Priest, and offer for thy cleansing those things which Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 45 But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Yeshua could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to Him from every quarter.

Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted that Yeshua told presumably Simon the Leper to do the Commandment in this week's Torah portion chapter's passage, but Simon, the Leper, didn't obey Yeshua's Words, and instead went out and told the people.



Verses thirty three through forty eight

Today, we would call this plague, mold or fungus. These are a couple of images of examples of the mold that exists at homes:

The first one is an image of red mold on a stone from a house

Red Mold


This is an image of green mold that exists on a stones

Molded Stones


These are the possible symbolic meanings for this plague in the house:

PRIEST COMMAND: 
hwhy/Yeshua command

"As a plague seen by me in the house": 
hwhy/Yeshua seeing the sins in the House of Israel/Nothern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

Preist command homeowners face the home: Leaders/elders (today- leaders of a nation) facing the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

Priest shall look at the plague: 
hwhy/Yeshua looking at the sins in the House of Israel/Nothern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

Plague in the walls of hollow strakes lower from the wall: Those sinning 
the House of Israel/Nothern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation) deteriating its weakest points through sinning, thus destroying the walls of righteousness/hedge of protection from hwhy/Yeshua

Yellowish green, reddish: The different type, or "color" of sins are causing the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation) to sin


This is what Jonathan Cahn of Beth Israel Worship Center mentioned in his book "The Harbinger" when 
hwhy brought down the hedge of protection from the United States that resulted in the 911 plane crashes at the twin towers and other locations in 2001.

Looking at the word HALLOW STRAKES

The Hebrew word for hallow strakes is "sh'kah-roorah"- Shin, Kuph, Ayin, Resh, Vav, Resh, Heh (
hrwreqs). It is from Strong's Concordance number 8258, and its definition

From H8257; a depression: - hollow strake.

from 8257 "shah-kah" (
eqs), and its definition

(Abbreviated in Amo_8:8); a primitive root; to subside; by implication to be overflowed, cease; causatively to abate, subdue: - make deep, let down, drown, quench, sink.

This is where we get our modern English word "scar".

This is what is happening in the nations today, where righteousness is being "subdued" and "quenched" by the rebellion of the people who are not believers in Yeshua.


Priest goes out from the house entrance: 
hwhy
/Yeshua leave the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

SHUT UP THE HOUSE 7 DAYS: Time of fructifying


7TH DAY:
PRIEST RETURNS: 
hwhy/Yeshua returns

Plague spread on the walls: Sin has spread more on the people of 
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

PRIEST COMMAND: 
hwhy/Yeshua command

Pull of plagues stones off the wall: Separating those where sinning from
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

House shall be scraped: Removing the sin from
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

Take it to unclean place: Ridding the sin from
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation) from its borders

Take other stones: Replacing People (i.e. new kings) in
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation) from its borders

This happened often in the Northern Kingdom of Israel, as mentioned throughout the books of the Kings and the books of Chronicles.

Plaster the house: Rebuild 
hwhy's/Yeshua's walls of righteousness/hedge of protection in the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

Plague returns, breaks out in the house: Sin still within, and affects 
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

PRIEST COMES AND LOOKS: 
hwhy/Yeshua returns and follows up

Plague spreads in the house: Sin has spread and affected others in
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

Leprosy of fretting on the house: Sin has affected 
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

Looking at the word FRETTING

The Hebrew word for fretting is "ma'ar"- Mem, Aleph, Resh (
ram). It is from Strong's concordance number 3992, and its definition

A primitive root; to be bitter or (causatively) to embitter, that is, be painful: - fretting, picking.

This is the similar Hebrew word for bitter. Those who are not believers in Yeshua will be "bitter" against us, as well as being bitter against 
hwhy/Yeshua.


UNCLEAN: Sin has affected
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

Tear down all elements of the house, and taken outside of the city: People
of the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation) removed and/or killed and/or exiled and/or enslaved to another country. Also, spiritually, people being turned over to HaSatan

In the book of the Prophets, this has happened to both house of Israel. The Nothern Kingdom of Israel was exiled around 722 BC, and later, when the Southern House of Judah was taken into Babylonian captivity around 586 BC. In the end times, the people of the world, because of their rebellion against 
hwhy/Yeshua, will experience the Seven Year Tribulation, and it will be an act of being turned over to HaSatan, take on his mark, and be eternally damned.

The one going to the house/lying in the house/sitting in the house shall wash his garments and be cleansed: The lands of
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation) shall be wash and cleansed with the Ruakh HaKodesh and the water of the Word. Also it could mean the land given rest

Be unclean until the evening: Unclean until time alloted in the new day (to 
hwhy/Yeshua the new millenium)

OR

PRIEST COMING AND LOOKING: 
hwhy/Yeshua coming and looking at the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

Plague has not spread: Sin has not spread in
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation)

CLEAN: Sin died in 
the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation) and is alive in hwhy/Yeshua

Plague is healed: 
hwhy/Yeshua making the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah (Today- a believing nation) whole


An example of the steps that caused a house (or nation) to sin is when King Jeroboam made the people of the Northern Kingdom of Israel go astray from the Torah, and it is noted in the book of the Kings

1 Kings 12:25 Then [King] Jeroboam [of the Northern Kingdom of Israel] built ta-Shechem in mount Ephraim, and dwelt therein; and went out from thence, and built ta-Penuel. 26 And Jeroboam said in his heart, Now shall the kingdom return to the house of David: 27 If this people go up to do sacrifice in the house of hwhy at Jerusalem, then shall the heart of this people turn again unto their lord, even unto Rehoboam king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of Judah. 28 Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy elohim, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. 29 And he set ta-the one in Bethel, and ta-the other put he in Dan. 30 And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship before the one, even unto Dan. 31 And he made ta-an house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi. 32 And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel ta-the priests of the high places which he had made. 33 So he offered upon the altar which he had made in Bethel the fifteenth day of the eighth month, even in the month which he had devised of his own heart; and made a feast unto the sons of Israel: and he offered upon the Altar of the Burnt Incense.

This is the foundation of the perverse pagan holiday of Haloween. I did a teaching of it, titled "The Biblical Roots of Halloween".

THE BIBLICAL ROOTS OF HALOWEEN

Though it relates to the whole house, it still relates to sin.
These unrighteous fruits are revealed in the apostle Paul's letter to the assembly in Colossia

Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Messiah in hwhy. 4 When Messiah, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. 5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6 For which things' sake the Wrath of hwhy cometh on the children of disobedience: 7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. 8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; 10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: 11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Messiah is all, and in all.

and in his letter to the assembly in Galatia

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the Kingdom of hwhy.

The apostle James, Yeshua's brother, reveals what happens to sin in his epistle

James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him. 13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of the Lord: for the Lord cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. 16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.


But the apostle Paul writes to the assembly in Galatia regarding the fruits of the Spirit

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no Torah. 24 And they that are Messiah's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

and the Apostle Peter wrote these to grow in love in his epistle

2 Peter 1:3 According as His Divine Power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue, knowledge; 6 And to knowledge, temperance; and to temperance, patience; and to patience, godliness; 7 And to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, unconditional love. 8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yeshua, the Messiah.



Verses forty nine through fifty seven

49 And shall take to cleanse ta-the house two birds, and cedar wood, and worm of the crimson, and hyssop: 50 And shall slaughter ta-the one bird to an earthen vessel upon living (running) water: 51 And shall take ta-the cedar wood, and ta-the hyssop, and ta the worm of the crimson, and ta the living bird, and shall dip them in the blood of the slaughtered bird and in the living water, and shall sprinkle to the house seven times: 52 And shall cleanse ta-the house on the blood of the bird, and on the living water, and on the living bird, and on the cedar wood, and on the hyssop, and on the the worm of the crimson: 53 And shall send out ta-the living bird to outside of the city to the face of the field, and shall atone upon the house: and shall be clean. 54 This is the Torah for every plague of the leprosy, and for the scall, 55 and for a leprosy of the garment, and for a house, 56 and for a rising, and for a scab, and for a bright spot: 57 To teach in the day that is unclean, and in the day that is clean: this is the Torah of the leprosy.

These are the same items, and similar process, and symbolic meanings as the former leper after he was healed from leprosy in verses one through seven.



To Summarize, this is the comparison of the plagues and their symbolic relationships from last week's Torah portion of Thazria, and segments of this chapter of this week's Torah portion:

TORAH SOURCE TORAH PORTION TOPIC SYMBOLIC RELATION
Leviticus
13:1-46
Plague of an Individual Sin of an Individual

Plague of a House Sin in the House of Israel/Northern Israel/Judah/A Believing Modern Nation



Regarding the generality of mold and mildew,
all I can say that it is good thing we have cleaning agents today like Tilex, otherwise, we would have a lot of houses torn down. That would hurt the real estate agencies a lot as well as the banks. It could put them out of business in this field entirely with the exception of the banks in some matters, that is if everyone followed this Toraic Commandment :) .







CHAPTER 15

Leviticus 15:1-33

Lev 15:1 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses and to Aaron to say, 2 Speak to the Sons of Israel, and you shall say to them, When a man, a man, shall have a discharge from his flesh of his issue, he is unclean. 3 And this, she shall be his uncleanness in his discharge: an emission in his flesh of ta-his issue, or the stopping of his flesh from his issue, she is his uncleanness. 4 Every bed which shall lie upon him the discharge shall be unclean: and every vessel which shall be sat upon him shall be unclean. 5 And a man that touches on his bed shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 6 And the one sitting upon the vessel which the discharged one had sat upon him shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 7 And the one touching on the flesh of the discharged one shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the evening. 8 And if the discharged one spits on the clean one; and shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 9 And every saddle which the discharged one shall ride upon him shall be unclean. 10 And any that touches on anything which shall be under him shall be unclean until the mixing (evening): and the one carrying them shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 11 And anyone who touches on him that had discharged, and his hands were not rinsed in the water, shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 12 And an earthen vessel which shall touch on him that had discharged shall be broken: and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in the water.

13 And when the one discharged from his issue shall be cleansed; and shall count to himself seven days for his cleansing, and shall wash his garments, and shall bathe his flesh in living (running) water, and shall be clean. 14 And on the eighth day, shall take for himself two turtledoves or two sons of a dove, and shall come to the Face of
hwhy to the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment, and shall give them to the Priest: 15 And the Priest shall offer them one of a Sin Offering and the one of an Elevation Offering; and the Priest shall atone upon him to the Face of hwhy from his issue.

16 And a man, if she shall go out from him a copulation of seed, and shall bathe 
ta-all his flesh in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 17 And every garment and every skin which shall be a copulation of seed upon him, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 18 And a woman who shall be lain of a man of her has a copulation of seed, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening).

19 And if a woman, she shall have an issue of blood, shall be a discharge in her flesh, she shall be in her impurity seven days: and all that touches on her shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 20 And all which she lies upon him on her impurity shall be unclean: and all which she sits upon him shall be unclean. 21 And any that touches on her bed shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 22 And any that touches on any vessel that she sits upon him shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 23 And if he is upon the bed or upon the vessels which she sat upon him in his touching on him, shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 24 And if lying, shall lie of her a man, and she is of her impurity, and shall be unclean seven days; and every bed which shall be lain upon him shall be unclean.

25 And if a woman discharges an issue of her blood many days in not of the time of her impurity, or if she discharges upon her impurity; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness as the days of her impurity: she, she shall be unclean. 26 Every bed which she lies upon him, all the days of her issue as the bed of her impurity shall be to her: and all the vessels which she sits upon him shall be unclean as the uncleanness of her impurity. 27 And all that touch on them shall be unclean, and shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening). 28 And if is cleansed from her issue, and shall count to her seven days, and afterwards, she shall be clean. 29 And on the eighth day, she shall take for herself two turtledoves or two sons of a dove, and shall bring them to the Priest to the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment. 30 And the Priest shall offer 
ta-the one of a Sin Offering, and ta-the one of an Elevation Offering; and the Priest shall atone upon her to the Face of hwhy from the issue of her uncleanness. 31 And you shall separate ta-the Sons of Israel from their uncleanness; and they shall not die in their uncleanness in their defiling ta-My Tabernacle which is in their midst. 32 This is the Torah of the discharge, and of whom she goes out from him of a copulation of seed by uncleanness on her; 33 And the one infirmed in her impurity, and the issue of ta-his discharge of a male and of a female, and of a man who shall lie with an unclean woman.

Verses one through eighteen

THE EMISSION OF A MAN

The STDTestExpress website has an article titled "Penile Discharge" which gives an explanation what it means for a man to give a discharge:

"Penile discharge is the result of inflammation of the urethra (the tube that carries urine and ejaculate through the penis). This may results in a condition called urethritis.

Urethritis can be caused by several different types of viruses, bacteria, and yeast that invade the urethra.

Discharge from the penis can range in consistency from thin and watery to thick and viscous, and can be clear, white, yellow, bloody, or a range of colors in between. It can also vary in amount from barely noticeable to very pronounced. Discharge can be accompanied by an odor, or it can be odorless. The most common culprits of penile discharge are chlamydia, gonorrhea, ureaplasma, mycoplasma and trichomoniasis—all of which can cause similar symptoms.

Discharge from the penis is not a "normal" occurrence in men; however, just because you're experiencing discharge doesn’t mean you necessarily have an STD. There are many different organisms that can be introduced into the urethra and cause infection that are not classified as sexually transmitted diseases".

When one touches an item that came in contact with a man who had a discharge, that person has come in contact with a foreign human organism which came from the sexual part of the man. Even if the semen didn't come out, the fluid was part of the "sexual coctail" that would have included the semen, and it is causes to make the person who came in contact with it unclean until sunset when they sky begins to mix from day to night.



Verse eight

8 And if the discharged one spits on the clean one; and shall wash his garments, and shall bathe in the water, and shall be unclean until the mixing (evening).

This Torah portion verse was manifested in the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant) when Yeshua was spat at by the Jewish authorities, and it is noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 26:65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy. 66 What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death. 67 Then did they spit in His face, and buffeted Him; and others smote Him with the palms of their hands,

When they did this to Yeshua, Yeshua was taking on the uncleanness of the men and women who had emissions in the past via the current Priests as well as the past Priests who took on the sins of the People via the sacrifices of their cleanliness. Yeshua allowed this on purpose to take to the cross at the Mount of Olives.


In the redemptive end of this week's Torah portion verse, Yeshua had to take on the spittle of the unclean, via the Roman soldiers, as part of His fulfillment in taking on the uncleanness of the Isralites, as well as the world, in the Gospel of Matthew

John 9:1 And as Yeshua passed by, He saw a man which was blind from his birth. 2 And His disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? 3 Yeshua answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the Works of hwhy should be made manifest in him. 4 I must work the Works of Him that sent Me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the Light of the World. 6 When He had thus spoken, He spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, 7 And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.



Verses thirteen through fifteen

13 And when the one discharged from his issue shall be cleansed; and shall count to himself seven days for his cleansing, and shall wash his garments, and shall bathe his flesh in living (running) water, and shall be clean. 14 And on the eighth day, shall take for himself two turtledoves or two sons of a dove, and shall come to the Face of hwhy to the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment, and shall give them to the Priest: 15 And the Priest shall offer them one of a Sin Offering and the one of an Elevation Offering; and the Priest shall atone upon him to the Face of hwhy from his issue.

This pertains to the day after the man who had the issue that made him unclean the previous day and had just became clean, and has to go through another seven day step process for his cleansing until the eighth day to offer his offering to the Priest. In total, this was a nine day ordeal.

There are symbolic meanings to the numbers seven and eight:

Seven: Spiritual Completion
Eight: New Beginnings (thank you Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries)

The seven days are an act of completion process like hwhy's completion of the six days of creation and the seventh day of the Shabbath, as emphasized from the first two chapters in the Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis. The number eight also relates to the new beginnings of the Priesthood service as noted in the Torah portion of Sh'mini, in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 9:1 And was in the eighth day Moses called for Aaron and for his sons, and for the Elders of Israel;



Looking at the following words:

DISCHARGE

The Hebrew word for discharge is "zoov"- Zayin, Vav, Bet (
bwz). It is from Strong's Concordance number 2100, and its definition

A primitive root; to flow freely (as water), that is, (specifically) to have a (sexual) flux; figuratively to waste away; also to overflow: - flow, gush out, have a (running) issue, pine away, run.


ISSUE

The Hebrew word for issue is "zohv"-
Zayin, Vav, Bet (bwz). It is from Strong's Concordance number 2101, and its definition

From H2100; a seminal or menstrual flux: - issue.

from 2100 "zoov" (
hwhy), and its definition

A primitive root; to flow freely (as water), that is, (specifically) to have a (sexual) flux; figuratively to waste away; also to overflow: - flow, gush out, have a (running) issue, pine away, run.

Notice they are the same Hebrew words with similar meanings.




Notice that all of these issues except for one allows the person to be clean while its on the same day, after the person bathes and washes the garments that came in contact with the item that was touched with the foreign discharged organisms. The exception was the earthen vessel which had to be broken, because, as I mentioned in past Torah portions, the earthen vessel is porous, and holds on to whatever comes in contact with it.


Notice also that a man after his seven day period ends, he has to bring two turtledoves or two sons of a dove, like a woman does after the days of her cleansing after giving birth to a child. For the men who practiced this Toraic Commandment when the Tabernacle/Temple was in operation, I wonder if they took their wives with them when they went to the Priest, so that it won't be conspicuous that it is you that is being purified :) .




Verses nineteen through thirty three


THE EMISSION OF A WOMAN

The women's impurity is what is called today a "woman's monthly cycle period" when they bleed for a few days. This is to show that they are fertile and able to get pregnant. If they did not have a menstrual flow, they could not.

Looking at the word IMPURITY

The Hebrew word for impurity is "needah"- Nun, Dalet, Heh (
hdn). It is from Strong's Concordance number 5079, and its definition

From H5074; properly rejection; by implication impurity, especially personal (menstruation) or moral (idolatry, incest): -    X far, filthiness, X flowers, menstruous (woman), put apart, X removed (woman), separation, set apart, unclean (-ness, thing, with filthiness).

from 5074 "nah-dahd" (
ddn), and its definition

A primitive root; properly to wave to and fro (rarely to flap up and down); figuratively to rove, flee, or (causatively) to drive away: - chase (away), X could not, depart, flee (X apace, away), (re-) move, thrust away, wander (abroad, -er, -ing).

Womenshealth.gov has an epublication article titled "Menstruation and the menstrual fact sheet". This is what it basically says about the Menstrual Cycle:

"
Menstruation (men-STRAY-shuhn) is a woman's monthly bleeding. When you menstruate, your body sheds the lining of the uterus (womb). Menstrual blood flows from the uterus through the small opening in the cervix and passes out of the body through the vagina...".

In the scriptures, it says that when the women gives an emission of blood, they are unclean for seven days as compared to men for only one day. Why is a woman unclean for seven days compared to a man's one day? When a woman bleeds during their menstrual cycle, some of the woman's lining which is part of a woman's flesh is shed which is "dead flesh", and as it does, the woman is also emiting "blood" out of her body. As Moses wrote in the Torah portion of Akharey Moth, in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 17:11 For a soul of the flesh, she is in the blood:...

When a woman discharges blood, she is also discharging part of her "soul". Part of the life of her soul has departed from her body. It is also compared to a soul that departs from one's body, and when a person dies, the "soul" departs from the person. Also, when a person touches the item that had contact from that woman who is in a menstrual period, that person is in indirect contact with "dead flesh" as well as the blood which includes that woman's soul. That is why that person would be unclean until the mixing after sunet of the new day.



Verse twenty five

25 And if a woman discharges an issue of her blood many days in not of the time of her impurity, or if she discharges upon her impurity; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness as the days of her impurity: she, she shall be unclean.

In relation, there is an account in the Brith Khadashah, where a woman was bleeding for twelve years, and it is noted in the Gospel of Luke

Luke 8:43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, 44 Came behind Him, and touched the border of His garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. 45 And Yeshua said, Who touched Me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with Him said, Master, the multitude throng Thee and press Thee, and sayest Thou, Who touched Me? 46 And Yeshua said, Somebody hath touched Me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of Me. 47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before Him, she declared unto Him before all the people for what cause she had touched Him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 And He said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

Notice that Yeshua did not say to her that she had to go to the Priest and follow the Commandment procedure. Why? I don't know. Maybe she did, and it was not recorded. Or, was it the fact that Yeshua was "the Priest", and made her clean through His saying to her "thy faith hath made thee whole...", meaning that she was cleansed through His word? It could be the latter.



Regarding this Torah portion segment of a woman's issue, if we look at our society today, and if we stayed with this Biblical trend, think about how many people are unclean today. Look how much people interact in today's human society, especially in today's cities. I would guarantee you that if anyone touches anything, whether a door knob, the bathrooms, a chair, even shaking hands with people, I would guarantee you that they would have touched something, or someone, that was in contact by someone who was unclean, or came in contact by something touched by someone else who was unclean.

I had a personal experience at a store where I went to to pay for my purchases, and the lady cashier handed me my receipt. Normally a cashier would hand me my receipt with their fingers touching the other end of it, but as she handed me my receipt, her hand was on the middle portion of the receipt. When I grabbed my receipt from the end, part of her hand came in contact with mine. I do not know why she handed it to me in an unconventional way.
I went back to the same store at another time, and came to the same cashier and did the same thing with the receipt, so it seemed, to me to be on purpose. I could not say whether she was unclean or not. Say that she was, that meant she made me unclean for the day by that direct contact. Others could receive a receipt that the cashier touched that was unclean as well, or customers could have come in contact with the cashier and make the cashier unclean. Think about that. How many items did unclean men and women touched at a store that they came in contact with.

For women today, who have menstrual flows, there are items now that can keep their flow from coming out of their bodies. Does this stop the means of their uncleanness, and does this make them exempt from the Torah Commandment or give an exception to the Torah? Most likely not. Because if they were able to prevent the flow from coming out, they are still going through their monthly cycle and would be unclean. I am not exempting the men, for the men are just as guilty of this by their discharges as well.


Also in these Torah accounts, the men and women who have discharges will be unclean seven days. Fun, huh? Could you imagine a man or a woman calling work? A man or a woman would call their bosses and say to them, such as "I'm sorry boss, but I won't be able to be to come to work for eight days, because according the Torah, I am unclean for seven days, and can't touch anything, lest I make people and places unclean".


How about the fact that if you're unclean by any form of contact, you would have to wash your clothes and take a shower, or a bath. Make sure you do it during the daytime and not go out of your house until the sunset, during the mixing period of the evening, because you are unclean until the Biblical new day starts. And you would be doing this daily (unless you were stranded alone on an island)


Make sure you have your washers ready, your showers and your baths ready every time you come home...


and have a nice day
