1The LORD said to Moses and Aaron,1The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,1The LORD also spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying,1And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying,1The LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron: "
2"Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'When any man has an unusual bodily discharge, such a discharge is unclean.2“Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, When any man has a discharge from his body, his discharge is unclean.2"Speak to the sons of Israel, and say to them, 'When any man has a discharge from his body, his discharge is unclean.2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any man hath a running issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he is unclean.2Speak to the Israelites and tell them: When any man has a discharge from his body, he is unclean.
3Whether it continues flowing from his body or is blocked, it will make him unclean. This is how his discharge will bring about uncleanness:3And this is the law of his uncleanness for a discharge: whether his body runs with his discharge, or his body is blocked up by his discharge, it is his uncleanness.3'This, moreover, shall be his uncleanness in his discharge: it is his uncleanness whether his body allows its discharge to flow or whether his body obstructs its discharge.3And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his flesh run with his issue, or his flesh be stopped from his issue, it is his uncleanness.3This is uncleanness of his discharge: Whether his body secretes the discharge or retains it, he is unclean. All the days that his body secretes or retains anything because of his discharge, he is unclean.
4"'Any bed the man with a discharge lies on will be unclean, and anything he sits on will be unclean.4Every bed on which the one with the discharge lies shall be unclean, and everything on which he sits shall be unclean.4'Every bed on which the person with the discharge lies becomes unclean, and everything on which he sits becomes unclean.4Every bed, whereon he lieth that hath the issue, is unclean: and every thing, whereon he sitteth, shall be unclean.4Any bed the man with the discharge lies on will be unclean, and any furniture he sits on will be unclean.
