Tazria

 13:22
 13:23
13:23 However, if the spot remains stable and does not expand, it is scar tissue from the infection, and the priest shall declare it clean.
Ve'im-tachteyha ta'amod habaheret lo fasatah tsarevet hashchin hi vetiharo hakohen.



Commentary:

scar tissue
  (Targum; Rashi; HaKethav VeHaKabbalah; Hirsch). Or, 'inflammation' (Ibn Ezra; Ibn Janach; Radak, Sherashim).

clean
  In such a case it need not be quarantined for a second week (Negaim 9:1; Yad, Tumath Tzaraath 5:4).
