EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)If a man also or a woman.—The fifth case, discussed in Leviticus 13:38-39, is the harmless leprosy, which does not render the patient unclean.
Bright spots, even white bright spots.—These white spots, which are of unequal size, and a little higher than the skin, generally appeared on the neck and face, and did not change the colour of the hair.
have in the skin of their flesh bright spots; and them only; not any rising or swelling, nor scab, nor scall, nor boil, nor burning, only bright spots, a sort of freckles or morphew:
even white bright spots; these, Ben Gersom observes, are white spots, but not plagues; and which were in whiteness inferior to the four species of the plague of leprosy, the white spot, the white swelling, and the scab of each.If a man also or a woman have in the skin of their flesh bright spots, even white bright spots;
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)White spots in the skin (38, 39)
These, if they are dull, and not of the character described in Leviticus 13:3, are a ‘tetter’ (freckled spot A.V.), a skin disease which is not of a leprous character. The Heb. word bohaḳ (only in Leviticus 13:39) is still used by the Arabs to denote this kind of eruption.Verses 38, 39. - The method of discriminating between leprous spots and freckled spots. In case the spots in the skin of theft flesh be darkish white; that is, of a dull or pale white, then it is only a freckled spot that groweth in the skin. This is "the harmless bohak (ἀλφός, LXX.), which did not defile, and which even the Arabs, who still call it bahak, consider harmless. It is an eruption upon the skin, appearing in somewhat elevated spots or rings of unequal sizes and a pale white colour, which do not change the hair; it causes no inconvenience, and lasts from two months to two years" (Keil). The man or woman who has this is clean. Leviticus 13:6).
