Leviticus 13:37 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)

(37) But if the scall be in his sight at a stay.—Better, But if the appearance of the scall hath remained the same.

And that there is black hair grown up therein.—Better, And if black hair hath, &c. If, in addition to its not spreading, the healthy colour of the hair has returned, it shows that the patient is cured of the leprosy, and the priest shall pronounce him clean. (See Lev. 13:31.) According to the adminstrators of the law, there had at least to be two black hairs, of such a length that the top could bow towards the root. If two hairs grew up on the healed scall, one black and the other white or yellow, or one long and the other short, the patient could not be declared clean.
