Did you know that the Bible talks about the purification of women after giving birth?

Well, if you didn’t know, that’s the way it is. The Bible refers to the exact amount in which a woman should last in purification after giving birth; this according to the sex of the baby. However, it is currently similarly maintained, and we see it when a woman after bringing a life into the world is common for her gynecologist to tell her 40 days of “sexual abstinence” (or quarantine).

Consequently, Leviticus 12:1-8 refers to all this. We realize that the conversation begins between God and Moses, which commands him to tell the children of Israel a series of statutes.

“Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, The woman when she conceives and gives birth to a man shall be unclean seven days; according to the days of your period will be unclean”; Leviticus 12:2.

Important fact

Certainly, Once a woman’s purification time has been completed, he must wear a one-year-old lamb for a holocaust (“Once his period of purification has been completed, whether he has had a boy or a girl, he will take a one-year-old lamb as a holocaust, and a pigeon chick or dove as a love for atoning sacrifice, and take them to the priest, at the entrance of the Meeting Shop; Leviticus 12:6)

BIBLICAL BASE: Leviticus 12:1-8

  1. The Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
  2. Speak to the people of Israel, saying, If a woman conceives and bears a male child, then she shall be unclean seven days. As at the time of her menstruation, she shall be unclean.
  3. And on the eighth day the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.
  4. Then she shall continue for thirty-three days in the blood of her purifying. She shall not touch anything holy, nor come into the sanctuary, until the days of her purifying are completed.
  5. But if she bears a female child, then she shall be unclean two weeks, as in her menstruation. And she shall continue in the blood of her purifying for sixty-six days.
  6. When the days of her purifying are completed, whether for a son or for a daughter, she shall bring to the priest at the entrance of the tent of meeting a lamb a year old for a burnt offering, and a pigeon or a turtledove for a sin offering,
  7. and he shall offer it before the Lord and make atonement for her. Then she shall be clean from the flow of her blood. This is the law for her who bears a child, either male or female.
  8. And if she cannot afford a lamb, then she shall take two turtledoves or two pigeons,[a] one for a burnt offering and the other for a sin offering. And the priest shall make atonement for her, and she shall be clean.
