The sacrifice for a running issue is two birds as a sin-offering and a burnt-offering.1 That for childbirth is a sheep burnt-offering and a bird sin-offering; but if she cannot afford it, birds for both.2 The leper’s sacrifice is three sheep as a guilt-offering, sin-offering and burnt-offering; but if he cannot afford it, the last two can be birds.3,a
