Cleansing of the camp by dealing with the unclean and sinful.

5:1(iii) And YEHOVAH (יהוה) spoke to Mosheh, saying,

Cleanliness and Confession (5:1 - 10)

5:2 Command Benai Yisrael, that they put out of the camp every leper, and every one that has an issue, and whosoever is defiled by the dead:

5:3 Both male and female shall you put out, without the camp shall you put them; that they defile not their camps, in the midst whereof I dwell.

5:4 And Benai Yisrael did so, and put them out without the camp: as YEHOVAH (יהוה) spoke to Mosheh, so did Benai Yisrael.

5:5 And YEHOVAH (יהוה) spoke to Mosheh, saying,

5:6 Speak to Benai Yisrael, When a man or woman shall commit any sin that men commit, to do a trespass against YEHOVAH (יהוה), and that person be guilty;

5:7 then he shall confess the sin which he has committed. He shall make restitution for his trespass in full, plus one-fifth of it, and give it to the one he has wronged.

5:8 But if the man has no relative to whom restitution may be made for the wrong, the restitution for the wrong must go to YEHOVAH (יהוה) for the kohen, in addition to the ram of the atonement with which atonement is made for him.

5:9 And every offering of all the kadosh things of Benai Yisrael, which they bring to the kohen, shall be his.

5:10 And every man's set-apart gifts shall be his; whatever any man gives the kohen shall be his.' "

(A:iv)

5:11 And YEHOVAH (יהוה) spoke to Mosheh, saying:

The Torah of Jealousy (5:11-31)

5:12 Speak to Benai Yisrael, and say to them, If any man's wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,

5:13 and a man lies with her carnally, and it is hidden from the eyes of her husband, and it is concealed that she has defiled herself, and there was no witness against her, nor was she caught—

5:14 And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:

5:15 Then shall the man bring his wife to the kohen, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth [part] of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it [is] an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.

5:16 And the kohen shall bring her near, and set her before YEHOVAH (יהוה):

5:17 (Maftir) And the kohen shall take kadosh water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the kohen shall take, and put [it] into the water:

5:18 And the kohen shall set the woman before YEHOVAH (יהוה), and uncover the woman's head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which [is] the jealousy offering: and the kohen shall have in his hand the bitter water that causes the curse:

5:19 And the kohen shall charge her by an oath, and say to the woman, If no man have lain with you, and if you have not gone aside to tumah [with another] instead of your husband, be you free from this bitter water that causes the curse:

5:20 But if you have gone aside [to another] instead of your husband, and if you be defiled, and some man have lain with you beside your husband:

5:21 then the kohen shall put the woman under the oath of the curse, and he shall say to the woman— "YEHOVAH (יהוה) make you a curse and an oath among your people, when YEHOVAH (יהוה) makes your thigh rot and your belly swell;

5:22 And this water that causes the curse shall go into your bowels, to make [your] belly to swell, and [thy] thigh to rot: And the woman shall say, amen (אמן), amen (אמן).

5:23 And the kohen shall write these curses in a book, and he shall blot [them] out with the bitter water:

5:24 And he shall cause the woman to drink the bitter water that causes the curse: and the water that causes the curse shall enter into her, [and become] bitter.

5:25 Then the kohen shall take the jealousy offering out of the woman's hand, and shall wave the offering before YEHOVAH (יהוה), and offer it upon the altar:

5:26 And the kohen shall take an handful of the offering, [even] the memorial thereof, and burn [it] upon the altar, and afterward shall cause the woman to drink the water.

5:27 And when he has made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, [that], if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causes the curse shall enter into her, [and become] bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people.

5:28 And if the woman be not defiled, but be clean; then she shall be free, and shall conceive seed.

5:29 This [is] the Torah of jealousies, when a wife goeth aside [to another] instead of her husband, and is defiled;

5:30 Or when the spirit of jealousy comes upon him, and he be jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before YEHOVAH (יהוה), and the kohen shall execute upon her all this Torah.

5:31 Then shall the man be guiltless from iniquity, and this woman shall bear her iniquity.
