Ve'ishah ki-tiheyeh zavah dam yihyeh zovah bivsarah shiv'at yamim tihyeh venidatah vechol-hanogea bah yitma ad-ha'arev.
15:20 As long as she is in her menstrual state, anything upon which she lies shall be unclean, and anyone sitting on it is [likewise] unclean.
Vechol asher tishkav alav benidatah yitma vechol asher-teshev alav yitma.
15:21 Whoever touches her bed must immerse his clothing and his body in a mikvah, and [then] remain unclean until evening.
