Leviticus 15

(15:1-15) God's instructions for men with a "running issue" out of their "flesh"
Long, tiresome, and disgusting instructions for the treatment of men who have a "running issue" out of their "flesh." Very enlightening. "And if he that hath the issue spit upon him that is clean..."

(15:1-2) "The LORD spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying ... When any man hath a running issue out of his flesh...."

(15:4) "Every bed, whereon he lieth that hath the issue, is unclean: and every thing, whereon he sitteth, shall be unclean."

(15:5) "Whosoever toucheth his bed shall ... be unclean until the even."

(15:6) "He that sitteth on any thing whereon he sat ... shall ... be unclean."

(15:7) "He that toucheth the flesh of him that hath the issue shall ... be unclean."

(15:8) "If he that hath the issue spit upon him that is clean; then he shall ... be unclean."

(15:9) "What saddle soever he rideth upon that hath the issue shall be unclean."

(15:10) "Whosoever toucheth any thing that was under him shall be unclean."

(15:11) "Whomsoever he toucheth ... shall ... be unclean."

(15:12) "The vessel of earth, that he toucheth ... shall be broken: and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water."

(15:13) "He that hath an issue ... shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing ... and shall be clean."

(15:14-15) "On the eighth day he shall take to him two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, and ... offer them, the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering."

(15:16-18)
God's law for wet dreams
What to do if you get your seed of copulation on yourself, your clothes, or your partner.
What the Bible says about masturbation

(15:16) "If any man's seed of copulation go out from him, then he shall ... be unclean."

(15:17) "Every garment ... whereon is the seed of copulation, shall be ... unclean."

(15:18) "The woman also with whom man shall lie with seed of copulation, they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean."

(15:19-33) God's law for menstruating women
They are unclean and sinful. Anthing that they touch is unclean. Anyone who touches anything that they touch is unclean. Stay completely away from them. (And for God's sake, don't even think about having sex with them!)
What the Bible says about Menstruation

(15:19) "If a woman have an issue, and her issue... be blood, she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean."

(15:20) "Every thing that she lieth upon in her separation shall be unclean: every thing also that she sitteth upon shall be unclean."

(15:21) "Whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean."

(15:22) "Whosoever toucheth any thing that she sat upon shall ... be unclean."

(15:23) "If it be on her bed, or on any thing whereon she sitteth, when he toucheth it, he shall be unclean."

(15:24) "If any man lie with her at all, and her flowers be upon him, he shall be unclean seven days; and all the bed whereon he lieth shall be unclean."
How should a man who has sex with a menstruating woman be punished?

(15:25) "If a woman have an issue of her blood ... she shall be unclean."

(15:26) "Every bed whereon she lieth ... and whatsoever she sitteth upon shall be unclean."

(15:27) "Whosoever toucheth those things shall be unclean."

(15:28) "But if she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself seven days, and after that she shall be clean."
Women are unclean while menstruating and for seven days after bleeding has stopped.

(15:29-30) "On the eighth day she shall take unto her two turtles, or two young pigeons ... for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for her before the LORD for the issue of her uncleanness."

15:30 And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for her before the LORD for the issue of her uncleanness.
15:31 Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness; that they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile my tabernacle that is among them.
15:32 This is the law of him that hath an issue, and of him whose seed goeth from him, and is defiled therewith; (15:32-33) " This is the law of him that hath an issue, and of him whose seed goeth from him ... And of her that is sick of her flowers, and of him that hath an issue, of the man, and of the woman, and of him that lieth with her that is unclean."
15:33 And of her that is sick of her flowers, and of him that hath an issue, of the man, and of the woman, and of him that lieth with her that is unclean.
