 13:11
 13:12
13:11 then it is a chronic leprosy in his skin, and the priest must declare it unclean. He shall not quarantine it, since it is obviously unclean.
Tsara'at noshenet hi be'or besaro vetim'o hakohen lo yasgirenu ki tame hu.
13:12 [This is the law] if the leprous area spreads over the skin, so that it covers all the skin of the afflicted person from head to foot, wherever the priest can see it.
Ve'im-paroach tifrach hatsara'at ba'or vechisetah hatsara'at et kol-or hanega merosho ve'ad-raglav lechol-mar'eh eyney hakohen.
