LAWS and TOKENS in DISCERNING LEPROSY. 2. When man shall have in skin, & c.-Fact of following rules for distinguishing plague of LEPROSY being incorporated with Hebrew code of LAWS, prove existence of odious disease among people. But short time, little more than a year when symptoms of LEPROSY seem extensively to have appeared among them; and as they could not be very liable to such cutaneous disorder amid their active journeyings and in the dry open air of Arabia, seeds of disorder must have been laid in Egypt, where It has always been endemic. There is every reason to believe that this was the case: that LEPROSY was not family complaint, hereditary among Hebrews, but that they got it from intercourse with Egyptians and from unfavorable circumstances of their condition in house of bondage. Great excitement and irritability of skin in hot and sandy regions of the East produce far greater predisposition to LEPROSY of all kinds than in cooler temperatures; and cracks or blotches, inflammations or even contusions of skin, very often lead to these in Arabia and Palestine, to some extent, but particularly in Egypt. Besides, subjugate and distressed state of Hebrews in latter countries and the nature of their employment, must have rendered them very liable to this as well as to various other blemishes and misaffections of skin; in production of which there are no causes more active or powerful than the depressed state of body and mind, hard labor under burning sun, body constantly cover with excoriating dust of brick fields, and impoverish diet-to all of which Israelites were expose while under Egyptian bondage. It appears that, as a consequence of these hardships, there was, even after they had left Egypt, general predisposition among Hebrews to contagious forms of LEPROSY-so that it often occurs as a consequence of various other affections of skin. And hence all cutaneous blemishes or blains-especially such as had tendency to terminate in LEPROSY-were watched with a jealous eye from first. Swelling, pimple, or BRIGHT spot on skin, create strong ground of suspicion of man's being attacked by a dreaded disease. Then he shall be brought unto Aaron priest, & c.-Like Egyptian priests, Levites united the character of physician with that of sacred office; and on appearance of any suspicious eruptions on skin, person having these was brought before the priest-not, however, to receive medical treatment, though it is not improbable that some purifying remedies might be prescribe, but to be examine with view to those sanitary precautions which It belong to legislation to adopt.

Regulations About Defiling Molds

It should be washed second time-According to Jews, the first washing was to put away plague, second to cleanse it. Both among Jews and Gentiles, leprosy has been considered as the most expressive emblem of sin, properties and circumstances of one pointing out those of other. Similitude or parallel has been usually run in the following manner:-1. Leprosy begins with a spot, simple hidden infection being the cause. 2. This spot was very conspicuous, and argue source whence it proceed. 3. It was of a diffusive nature, soon spreading over the whole body. 4. It communicates its infectious nature, not only to the whole of person's body, but also to his clothes and habitation. 5. It renders infected people loathsome, unfit For and dangerous to society because of its infectious nature. 6. The person infected was oblige to be separate from society, both religious and civil; to dwell by himself without camp or city, and hold commerce with none. 7. He was oblige to proclaim his own uncleanness, publicly acknowledge his defilement, and, sensible of his plague, continue humble and abase before God and man. How expressive all these are of nature of sin and the state of the sinner, spiritual mind will at once perceive. 1. Original infection or corruption of nature is grand hidden cause, source, and spring of all transgression. 2. Iniquity is a seed that has its growth, gradual increase, and perfection. As various powers of mind are develop, so it diffuses itself, infecting every passion and appetite through its whole extent and operation. 3. As it spreads in mind, so it diffuses itself throughout life; every action partaking of its influence, till whole conduct becomes tissue of transgression, because every imagination of thoughts of the sinner's heart is only evil continually, Genesis 6. This is the natural state of man. 4. As a sinner is infect, so is he infectious; by his precept and example, he spreads infernal contagion wherever he go; joining with multitude to do evil, strengthening and being strengthen in ways of sin and death, and becoming especially snare and curse to his own household. 5. That sinner is abominable in sight of God and of all good men, that he is unfit for society of righteous, and that he cannot, as such, be admitted into the kingdom of God, need no proof. Leviticus 13: 58 garment, whether warp or woof, or any article of leather from which mark has departed when you wash it, it shall then be washed second time and will be clean. Third Commandment Thou shalt not take the name of Lord thy God in vain: For the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. ' Exod 20: 7. This Commandment has two parts: 1.
