Leviticus Chapter 12
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a woman have conceived seed, and born a man child: then she shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of the separation for her infirmity shall she be unclean.
3And in the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.
6 And when the days of her purifying are fulfilled, for a son, or for a daughter, she shall bring a lamb of the first year for a burnt offering, and a young pigeon, or a turtledove, for a sin offering, unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, unto the priest:
8 And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.

Leviticus Chapter 12 Bible commentary...
- After the laws concerning clean and unclean food, come the laws concerning clean and unclean persons. Man imparts his depraved nature to his offspring, so that, excepting as the atonement of Christ and the sanctification of the Spirit prevent, the original blessing, "Increase and multiply," #Ge 1:28|, is become to the fallen race a direful curse, and communicates sin and misery. Let those women who have received mercy from God in child-bearing, with all thankfulness own God's goodness to them; and this shall please the Lord better than sacrifices.
Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

Leviticus Chapter 12 teaches that newborn babies should be quarantined for a period before being exposed to the public. The same teachings apply to women at certain times. The purification for newborns was practised in my rural community in earlier years.

1-7 I believe this is the Grace and Glory of God that we should learn by the law; and 8 to make it as easy as possible for us to abide by or in the law.

I love this Chapter. I read it to my Wife many times. I laugh much, she laughs little. About half as much.
