The law for the use of it in purification of the unclean.
11 ¶ He that touchethºª the deadºª bodyº of any² manº shall be uncleanºª sevenº days.º 12 He² shall purify¹ª himself² with it on the thirdº day,º and on the seventhº dayº he shall be clean:ºª but if² he purify¹ª not himself²² the thirdº day,º then the seventhº dayº he shall not² be clean.ºª 13 Whosoever² touchethºª the deadºª bodyº of any manº that² is dead,ºª and purifieth¹ª not himself,²² defilethºª² the tabernacleº of the LORD;º and that² soulº shall be cut offºª from Israel:º² because² the waterº of separationº was not² sprinkledºª upon² him, he shall be² unclean;º his uncleannessº [is] yet² upon him. 14 This² [is] the law,º when² a manº diethºª in a tent:º all² that comeºª into² the tent,º and all² that² [is] in the tent,º shall be uncleanºª sevenº days.º 15 And every² openºª vessel,º which² hath no² coveringº boundº upon² it,² [is] unclean.º 16 And whosoever²² touchethºª one that is slainº with a swordº in² the openº fields,º or² a dead body,ºª or² a boneº of a man,º or² a grave,º shall be uncleanºª sevenº days.º 17 And for an uncleanº [person] they shall takeºª of the ashesº² of the burnt heiferº of purification for sin,º and runningº waterº shall be putºª thereto² in² a vessel:º 18 And a cleanº personº shall takeºª hyssop,º and dipºª [it] in the water,º and sprinkleºª [it] upon² the tent,º and upon² all² the vessels,º and upon² the personsº that² were² there,² and upon² him that touchedºª a bone,º or² one slain,º or² one dead,ºª or² a grave:º 19 And the cleanº [person] shall sprinkleºª upon² the uncleanº on the thirdº day,º and on the seventhº day:º and on the seventhº dayº he shall purifyºª himself, and washºª his clothes,º and batheºª himself in water,º and shall be cleanºª at even.º 20 But the manº that² shall be unclean,ºª and shall not² purify¹ª himself,² that² soulº shall be cut offºª from amongº² the congregation,º because² he hath defiledºª² the sanctuaryº of the LORD:º the waterº of separationº hath not² been sprinkledºª upon² him; he² [is] unclean.º 21 And it shall be² a perpetualº statuteº unto them, that he that sprinklethºª the waterº of separationº shall washºª his clothes;º and he that touchethºª the waterº of separationº shall be uncleanºª until² even.º 22 And whatsoever²² the uncleanº [person] touchethºª shall be unclean;ºª and the soulº that touchethºª [it] shall be uncleanºª until² even.º
