15:1  VA YEDABER YHVH EL MOSHEH VE EL AHARON LEMOR

וַיְדַבֵּר יְהוָה אֶל מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל אַהֲרֹן לֵאמֹר

KJ (King James translation): And the LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying,

BN (BibleNet translation): Then YHVH spoke to Mosheh and Aharon, saying:


15:2 DABRU EL BENEY YISRA-EL VA AMARTEM AL'EHEM ISH ISH KI YIHEYEH ZAV MI BESARO ZOVO TAM'E HU

דַּבְּרוּ אֶל בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וַאֲמַרְתֶּם אֲלֵהֶם אִישׁ אִישׁ כִּי יִהְיֶה זָב מִבְּשָׂרוֹ זוֹבוֹ טָמֵא הוּא

KJ: Speak 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 isunclean.

BN: Speak to the children of Yisra-El, and say to them: When any man has a running discharge in his flesh, that discharge is unclean.


15:3 VE ZOT TIHEYEH TUM'ATO BE ZOVO RAR BESARO ET ZOVO O HECHTIM BESARO MI ZOVO TUM'ATO HI

וְזֹאת תִּהְיֶה טֻמְאָתוֹ בְּזוֹבוֹ רָר בְּשָׂרוֹ אֶת זוֹבוֹ אוֹ הֶחְתִּים בְּשָׂרוֹ מִזּוֹבוֹ טֻמְאָתוֹ הִוא

KJ: And 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.

BN: And this is how you shall determine his uncleanness with regards his discharge: if his flesh runs with his discharge, if or his flesh is obstructed by this discharge, this is his uncleanness.


All translators struggle with this verse: how does a discharge "stop" the flesh, or "obstruct" it, and from what? Some gruesomely grotesque attempts to explain the medics of this can be found here.

Part of the difficulty lies in the ambivalence of "uncleanness". The discharge is itself a form of medical "uncleanness", but there is also the ritual or ceremonial "uncleanness", the one that prohibits you from entering the Sanctuary.

BN: And if he who has the issue should spit upon he who is clean, then he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be considered unclean until the evening.


Not necessarily a wilful and nasty piece of social misbehaviour, but also perhaps the spittle that people in the front row of the theatre are well used to.

KJ: And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean.

BN: And when he who has an issue is cleansed of his issue, then he shall count seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes; and he shall bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be considered clean.


MAYIM CHAYIM: A distinction is made between washing, for the purposes of hygiene, and washing for the purposes of spiritual purification; the latter implies a MIKVEH, for the former any water will do (provided that it is clean).

Seven days:

KJ: And on the eighth day he shall take to him two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, and come before the LORD unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and give them unto the priest:

BN: And on the eighth day he shall take two turtle-doves, or two young pigeons, and come before YHVH at the door of the tent of meeting, and give them to the Kohen.


Again we witness the superstition that sickness is allied to sin and can only finally be healed through sacrifice. For a monotheistic religion that is opposed to superstition, the choice of birds of Astarte may be surprising; it is obviously left over from pre-monotheistic times.

BN: And if the flow of seed should issue from a man, then he shall bathe all his flesh in water, and be considered unclean until the evening.


Is this an unintentional flow of seed, or the act of coitus interrupts - the sin of Onan - or masturbation? The text is not clear, and therefore any or all are presumably counted. What does Rashi say? Nothing.

KJ: And the woman with whom a man shall lie carnally, they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be considered unclean until the evening.


Blood and semen. Two of the three sources of life (the third, the egg, is dealt with in the laws regarding menstruation and female purification, below) and therefore two of the holiest elements of creation; and therefore two of the easiest to sin, even unintentionally.


VA MAYIM: Why is there a dagesh in MAYIM - a dagesh chazak, noch, inferring it should be read as a double-mem? I need a grammatical expert to explain this (the online resources do not do so: click here or here).

BN: Thus shall you separate the Beney Yisra-El from their uncleanness; so that they do not die from their uncleanness, when they defile my tabernacle that is in their midst.


This statement poses an enormous question for post-Temple Judaism. The very clearly stated inference is that uncleanness refers specifically to the Mishkan and the Temple, that it is all about YHVH being impacted by the uncleanness and having to take the life of an impure person to avoid such impact; and that it therefore does not matter whether one is clean or unclean if there is no Temple to defile. Does a synagogue or Torah study house stand as substitute for the Temple, and therefore the TUM'AH continues? The Talmud would say yes, but this verse challenges that.
