Negaim 14:6-7

Negaim 14:6

The cedar used in the purification of the metzora must be one cubit (about 18") in length and one-quarter as thick as the leg of a bed when one leg is divided into two equal parts and then these two into four equal parts. The hyssop may not be Greek hyssop, blue hyssop, Roman hyssop, desert hyssop or any other kind of hyssop that has an adjective modifying its name.

Negaim 14:7

On the eighth day, the metzora brings three animals: a sin offering, a guilt offering and a burnt offering. One who could not afford this would bring a bird as a sin offering and a bird as a burnt-offering.
