14:2 This shall be the a law of the leper in the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought unto the priest:

    (a) Or, the ceremony which shall be used in his purgation.
14:4 Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two birds alive [and] b clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:
    (b) Of birds which were permitted to be eaten.
14:5 And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over c running water:
    (c) Running water, or of the fountains.
14:7 And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall d let the living bird loose into the open field.
    (d) Signifying that he that was made clean was set free, and restored to the company of others.
14:10 And on the eighth day he shall take two he lambs without e blemish, and one ewe lamb of the first year without blemish, and three tenth deals of fine flour [for] a meat offering, mingled with oil, f and one log of oil.
    (e) Which has no imperfection in any part.
    (f) This quantity in Hebrew is called a Log, and holds six eggs in measure.
14:21 And if he [be] poor, and cannot get so much; then he shall take one lamb [for] a trespass offering to be waved, to make an atonement for him, and one g tenth deal of fine flour mingled with oil for a meat offering, and a log of oil;

14:24 And the priest shall take the lamb of the trespass offering, and the log of oil, and the priest shall h wave them [for] a wave offering before the LORD:

    (h) Or, shall offer them as the offering that is shaken to and fro.
14:30 And he shall offer the one of the turtledoves, or of the young pigeons, i such as he can get;
    (i) whether of them he can get.
14:32 This [is] the k law [of him] in whom [is] the plague of leprosy, whose hand is not able to get [that which pertaineth] to his cleansing.
    (k) This order is appointed for the poor man.
14:34 When ye be come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I l put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession;
    (l) This declares that no plague nor punishment comes to man without God's providence and his sending.
14:41 And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off without the city into m an unclean place:
    (m) Where trash was cast, and other filth, that the people might not be infected by them.
14:45 And he shall n break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber thereof, and all the morter of the house; and he shall carry [them] forth out of the city into an unclean place.
    (n) That is, he shall command it to be pulled down, as in (Le 14:40).
14:49 And he shall take to cleanse the house two birds, and cedar wood, and o scarlet, and hyssop:
    (o) It seems that this was a lace or string to bind the hyssop to the wood, and so was made a sprinkle: the apostle to the Hebrews calls it scarlet wool, (He 9:19).
