Numbers 5:1-4

Unclean people

1 The Lord said to Moses, 2 ‘Speak to the Israelites. They must send any person with an illness of the skin away from the camp. Or somebody may have an illness that causes pus to come out of his body. Any person like that is not clean. Any person who has touched a dead person is not clean. Send those people out of the camp too. 3 Do that with both men and women. Send them out of the camp. They must not make the camp unclean, because that is where I live among the people.’

4 The Israelites did what the Lord had said to Moses. They sent those people outside the camp.
