Leviticus - Chapter 15

Bible Study Notes

Leviticus 15:1-12 A bad discharge from a man’s reproductive part of his body makes him unclean, his bed unclean, and anything he sits on unclean. Anyone who touches his bed, sits where he sat, or touches him, or is spit upon by him must wash their clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening. If the unclean man touches an earthenware vessel, it shall be broken. If the vessel is made of wood, it shall be rinsed in water.

Leviticus 15:13-15 When a man is healed of their discharge, seven days shall go by of their healing when they then shall wash their clothes and bathe in fresh water to be clean. On the eighth day, they shall offer two pigeons or turtle doves to the priest (sin and burnt offering) where atonement shall be made.

Leviticus 15:16-18 A normal discharge from a man’s reproductive part of his body makes him unclean until evening and anything it touches is made unclean until evening. The man must bathe their whole body in water. Anything it touches must be washed with water. No sin or burnt offering is commanded for this uncleanness for it is a normal discharge.

Leviticus 15:19-24 A discharge specifically from a woman’s body that deals with blood makes her unclean, her bed unclean, and anything she sits on unclean. Anyone who touches her bed, sits where the unclean woman sat, or touches the unclean woman, must wash their clothes and bathe in water and be unclean until evening.

Leviticus 15:28-30 When a woman is healed of her blood discharge, seven days shall go by of her healing when she then shall wash her clothes and bathe in fresh water to be clean. On the eighth day, she shall offer two pigeons or turtle doves to the priest (sin and burnt offering) where atonement shall be made.

Leviticus 15:31-33 Keeping the unclean people separate from the rest of the people was important so that the people contaminated by the infected people, if they were to die, would not defile the tabernacle.
