Leviticus 14:2 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)
(2) This shall be the law of the leper.—That is, the manner in which an Israelite cured of his leprosy shall be purified and restored to the communion of the sanctuary on the day when he is pronounced clean.
He shall be brought unto the priest.—He is to be conducted from his place of seclusion (see Lev. 13:46) to an appointed place on the borders of the camp. It was this coming to the priest to which Christ referred when He said to the leper whom He had healed, “Go, show thyself to the priest, and ofter the gift that Moses commanded” (Mat. 8:4).
