Numbers 5:1-4 New International Version

The Unclean Driven from the Camp

5 1  The Lord said to Moses, 2  "Command the Israelites to send away from the camp anyone who has a defiling skin disease[1] or a discharge of any kind, or who is ceremonially unclean because of a dead body. 3  Send away male and female alike; send them outside the camp so they will not defile their camp, where I dwell among them." 4  The Israelites did so; they sent them outside the camp. They did just as the Lord had instructed Moses.


[1] 5:2 The Hebrew word for "defiling skin disease" , traditionally translated "leprosy," was used for various diseases affecting the skin.
