Or the man that toucheth any creeping thing, whereby he may be made unclean, or a man by whom he may take uncleanness, [a]whatsoever uncleanness he hath,

The person that hath touched such, shall therefore be unclean until the even, and shall not eat of the holy things, [b]except he have washed his flesh with water.

But when the Sun is down, he shall be clean, and shall afterward eat of the holy things: for it is his [c]food.
