Leviticus 12:8 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Uncleanness and Purification after Child-Birth. - Leviticus 12:2-4. "If a woman bring forth (תּזריע) seed and bear a boy, she shall be unclean seven days as in the days of the uncleanness of her (monthly) sickness." נדּה, from נדד to flow, lit., that which is to flow, is applied more especially to the uncleanness of a woman's secretions (Leviticus 15:19). דּותהּ, inf. of דּוה, to be sickly or ill, is applied here and in Leviticus 15:33; Leviticus 20:18, to the suffering connected with an issue of blood.
